EVANGELIST KELVIN CRIED. HE WALLOWED IN PAIN AND AGONY. THEN THE FIERCE DEMON OF DISCOURAGEMENT SET IN. EVANGELIST KELVIN STARTED HEARING VOICES.
-Do you still want to continue? Are you sure you are called by God to be an EVANGELIST? You are just following your mother’s footstep. This is mere fiction. It is not real. why are your unrighteous siblings ma-king it in life andyou suffering. Can’t you see you have been deceiving yourself? and that book you re-ad every now and then, All the promises in them, which have you see? All you have seen is pain, lack, rejection and.then in this sameKingdom you are willing to die for, you were double crossed. Haven’t you come to a conclusive decision that THIS IS A SCAM? YOU HAVE BEEN SCAMMED. Your God had failed you.
KELVIN LOCKED HIMSELF INDOORS FOR DAYS. ALL HE DID WAS CRY. HE St©pPED GOING TO CHURCH. HIS PASTOR KEPT CALLING HIS LINE, IT KEPT SAYING SWITCHED OFF. HE c@m£ TWICE TO VISIT EVANGELIST KELVIN, HE MET THE DOOR LOCKED.
MEMBERS, ESPECIALLY THE YOUTHS OF HEAVENLY GRACE BIBLE CHURCH WERE WORRIED. EVANGELIST KELVIN’S SUDDEN DISAPPERANCE WAS TALK OF THE MOMENT. THE GENERAL OVERSEER OF HEAVENLY GRACE BIBLE CHURCH AND HIS WIFE WERE WORRIED. THEY CALLED A MEETING WITH THE CHURCH LEADERS.
AFTER A SHORT OPENING PRAYER, REV JUDE STARTED HIS SPEECH.
-first i must thank you all for honouring this urgent call. (he took a de-ep breath) It is in respect of the sudden disappearance of our very own Evangelist Kelvin. I have been to his house twice, my wife and i, we met the door locked. No sign of him anywhere. We have called his number countless times, it’s SWITCHED off. I don’t know if anyone knows his whereabout.
ONE OF THE ELDERS STOOD UP…
-praise God. This same issue has been giving me sleepless nights. Just like daddy rightly said, we have been calling his line, it’s been saying switched off. Maybe he went to camp or something.
ANOTHER ELDER STOOD UP….
-praise God….i don’t think so. Evangelist Kelvin doesn’t just leave like that without informing anyone. If he has a PROGRAMME, he will let the church know, ESPECIALLY the prayer team. The last crusade he attended at fire tabernacle, we were informed. We heard what God did throu-gh him. Something isn’t right. i strongly believe all is not well with him.
-yes, bro George. you are right. The last time we spoke, he said Something. I adviced him to speak we daddy about it. I don’t know if he still did.
-what was that? REV JUDE asked. He didn’t discuss anything with me.
-daddy, it’s concerning that boy that was healed on the crusade ground. He got from a reliable source that the father of the boy was looking for him. We all know AKAEKPUCHIONWA, his is the father of the boy.
-really? REV Jude replied.
-yes sir. pastor Heavenson, the head pastor of fire tabernacle gave the man a wrong number. Evangelist kelvin said, chief gave him a br@nd new car, and money worth millions and because of the healing on his son, he will finish the church building. Pastor Heavenson took all. Evangelist kelvin told me he was going to confront him. Iadviced him to see daddy first.
-are you serious? i can’t believe this. Pastor Heavenson??? act like that??? money!!! this thing called money but Evangelist kelvin behaved unlike him. Why didn’t he tell me? and it was after that day he told you he was going to confront pastor Heavenson got missing right? REV JUDE ASKED.
-yes sir bro samuel replied.
-Daddy, bro livinus called, we nee-d to report to the police about this case.
THERE WAS CHAOS, ARGUMENT, AND CONFUSION. ALL THE WHILE, REV JUDE KEPT. AFTER FEW MINUTES…..
-peace in Jesus name…. Brethren, this is a very s-en-sitive and crucial case. We nee-d the leading of the Holy spirit in this case. First and foremost, i will like to call pastor Heavenson to know if Evangelist kelvin was with him.
REV JUDE DIALED PASTOR HEAVSON’S NUMBER.
-it’s ringing. speaker out will be the best.
PASTOR HEAVSON PICKED..
-i know you will call me REV JUDE. That son of yours is a shame to the b©dy of christ. How were you able to ordain him EVANGELIST? He has no control on his anger. He sl@pped me and punched me. He to-re my mouth. How can God use that kind of person. I have been treating myself. During the school of discipline, did you not teach him the fruit of the spirit which is selfcontrol? He even THREATENED to deal with me. My life is at stake.
EVERYONE WAS THROWN INTO CONFUSION. REV JUDE WAS SPEECHLESS AS PASTOR HEAVSON CONTINUED HIS SPEECH.
-hello sir. plea-se i don’t un-derSTAND. what is going on? i only called to know if EVANGELIST KELVIN visited you. We have been looking for him since the day he said he was coming to your office.
-REV JUDE, what is that supposed to mean? are you trying to insinuate i KIDNAPPED him? i have the video of what transpired between him and me. Chief AKAEKPUCHIONWA decided to bless my church for the healing of his son. That is the bone of contention. I even gave kelvin five hundred thousand. The thank you i got is sl@ps and punches that to-re my mouth and got me bleeding furiously. I would have taken up the case but because i am a child of God, the bible says vengance is of God.
-hmmm, i can’t believe you. The kelvin i know won’t do such.
-hahahahaha, you said? that’s what we see everyday. Pretenders in the house of God. He sl@pped and punched me severally. My MEMBERS are very angry. The have been THREATENing to have him locked up. i have been PLEADING with them. i will forward the video to you.
-hmmm. (Rev jude dropped the call)
FEW MINUTED LATER HE RECEIVED THE VIDEO. EVANGELIST KELVIN Sl@pPED, PUNCHED PASTOR HEAVSON. ONE OF THE ELDERS FLARRED UP.
-This video was EDITED. what HAPPENED before the sl@p and punches. Heavenson must have said something to him. He was even crying. This video is one sided. Who knows if he was defending himself. We must get that man ARRESTED. First he took what belongs to Evangelist kelvin and now he is trying to form victim. THIS IS OUTRIGHT WICKEDNESS.
-let us calm down plea-se, REV JUDE replied. We are all ministers of God. Let us pray over this issue and listen to the voice of the Holy spirit. Hmmm, de-ep inside me, i am cold. Something has gone wrong with my son Kelvin. i wish he c@m£ to me at first. I just wish i heard about this before now. plea-se i beg us, let us prayerfully follow this matter. LET US PRAY.
EVANGELIST KELVIN HAS BEEN IN HIS ROOM FOR FOUR GOOD DAYS. NO BATHING, NO EATING. HE IS WAITING FOR DEATH TO TAKE HIM BECAUSE HE WAS TIRED OF LIVING.
EVANGELIST KELVIN’S CONFESSION BEGINS….
it was the forth day i lockef myself in. That was a day i will never forget. On the 25th day in october 2016. i refused food, water, shower, and whatever that has to do with life. I just la-id on a sp©t. i closed my windows and doors. You will never notice a living being is in that room. i just wanted to die.
SUDDENLY, i felt a heavy breeze. i was sure my windows were closed. I put off anything called electricity. I was in total darkness every night. This wind blew so heavy. i managed to stand up. The next minute i saw a lady standing before me smiling. She is so Beautiful, slim, fair skinned. i have never seen such perfection in beauty. She smiled at me and said…
“i have come to save you. i will help you. you cannot die. I have been s£nt to give you wealth. All that has been deprived of you , i will give you double. This December, you will be going home DIFFERENTly”
I was confused because, i was very sure i looked my doors.
who are you? how did you get here? where the questions i asked.
“i am princess moriah, she repiled,Henceforth, i shall be your guardian angel. I will give you power, wealth, connection. I will be the only lady in your life”.
That night, i sle-pt with her all throu-gh. Where the energy c@m£ from, i could not tell. The next morning, she told me to pick few important things and follow her because we will no longer be coming back to that place. i picked few clothes and followed her.
She took me to the bar beach.
“This is where i come from. she said. my mother the queen will like to see you”she smiled.
I smiled back. she dragged me and we went into the water. The next place i saw was so strange but very beautiful. I walked into the Kingdom of the marine. Their beauty is fearful. Everyone of them looked alike. The queen said to me…..
“AT LAST KELVIN, AT LAST!!!!
There was an uproar of heavy laughter and i never knew why.
Let he who thinks he stands………….
“it is so good to have you in our mist. Kelvin. With you, i am sure to get alot of souls into my Kingdom”. This December promises to be the best of it’s kind for you. Not to worry. You will swim in the ocean of wealth and millions. You will no longer be ridiculed. Whatever you want will be at your beckon. Just name it, or wish it, it is yours”.
I was supposed to be excited but i wasn’t. Still, my spirit was cold. I felt something wasn’t right but i couldn’t place it. The queen s-en-sed i wanted to say something then she said to me…
-c’mon kelvin, speak up. what’s bothering you?
-plea-se, where i’m i? why do i feel so strange? why do i feel i’m not in the right place?
SHE TURNED TO MORIAH AND SAID….
-Why is he still like this? you did not do your Job well.
-Your majesty i did. With time, he will be fine.
SUDDENLY I REMEMBERED ALL I WENT THrou-gh. I BROKE INTO TEARS. THE QUEEN STOOD UP, WALKED TOWARDS ME, I WAS STARTLED BY HER BEAUTY. HER HAIR WAS SO LONG. ALL MY, I HAVE NOT SEEN SUCH A BEAUTIFUL BEING. SHE WALKED UP TO BE WITH THIS CHARMING SMILE. SHE WIPED THE TEARS OFF MY EYES AND SAID,…..
– “I WILL HELP YOU. wipe your tears. This kingdom does not make a promise it can’t fulfil. Many like you c@m£ here with tears but today, they are enjoying. You will be all you wish to be on one condition.
AS SHE WALKED BACK TO HER THRONE, I WONDERED WHAT HER CONDITION WILL BE. AT THAT POINT, NOTHING MATTERED TO ME ANYMORE. MY FAITH MATTERED NO MORE. I WAS CONCIOUS OF WHAT WAS GOING ON. I KNEW I HAVE LOST MY SALVATION, MY REDEMPTION HAVE BEEN TERMINATED, I CARED NO MORE. WHAT HAS SALVATION Brou-ghT TO ME, I THOUGHT. IT HAS Brou-ghT NOTHING BUT PAIN, SHAME, AND MISERY. SO I THOUGHT. AS THESE THOUGHTS RAN THrou-gh MY HEAD, I HEARD THE QUEEN SAY SOMETHING. SHE SAID….
-you will marry moriah!!!!
WHAT!!! That easy? i couldn’t believe it. I was about jumping into space when she Thun-dered what turned into a bitter pill.
-……….As an invisible wife!!!! This means you are not permitted to have any other wife in the world. You will continue with your work of MINISTRY but in a new dimension, according to my instruction. You will possess great powers to see vision. That’s what the people of the world wants. They like PROPHECY. You will be one if the most powerful prophet in your locality. So long as you keep slee-ping with my princess, MORIAH. Deal or no DEAL!!!
WITHOUT WASTING ANYTIME, I SHOUTED DEAL. TEARS ROLLED MY EYES. DEAL WITH THE DEVIL. I WAS VERY CONCIOUS OF WHAT I WAS DOING. I KNEW I HAVE FALLEN, I NEVER KNEW IT WASN’T JUST AN ORDINARY FALL….I WAS DOOMED.
RIGHT THERE IN THE MARINE, I WEDDED MORIAH. I SPENT TWO WEEKS IN THE SEA. THAT NIGHT, I c@m£ BACK TO EARTH. I HAD NO IDEA, THE NEXT STEP TO TAKE. I JUST WALKED OUT OF THE BEACH AREA. GETTING TO THE MAIN ROAD, I SAW CROWD. PEOPLE GATHERED. I WALKED TOWARDS THE CROWD. I NOTICED A WOMAN CRYING. SHE HELD A CHILD IN HER ARMS. I WAS TOLD THE BABY DROWNED IN A WELL NEAR THE COMPOUND. THE BABY HAD St©pPED BREATHING. HE la-id LIFELESS ON HIS MOTHER’S ARM. I WALKED UP TO THE WOMAN.
-Woman, i said, by the power of God, your child will live again.
I l@yMY LANDS ON HIS che-st, AND CLOSED MY EYES. I FELT A HEAVY f0rç£, LEAVE ME. I FOUND MYSELF SPEAKING IN STRANGE ton-gue. THAT WASN’T THE HOLYGHOST ton-gue I SPOKE. I NOTICED THE BOY WAS j£rkING TOO. THE SNEEZED AND OPENED HIS EYES.
THE QUEEN IS WISE, SO I THOUGHT. INDEED, SHE WAS OUT TO HELP ME. THAT SINGLE MIRACLE WAS THE ex-posURE I nee-dED. TWO WEEKS AFTER THAT, I BEc@m£ POPULAR. I BEc@m£ PROPHET KELVIN. MY FAME WENT ACROSS. MEN OF TIMBER AND CALIBER c@m£ TO ME FOR ALL SORTS OF CONSULTATIONS. EVERY NIGHT, MORIAH COMES. WE WILL MAKE OUT ALL THrou-gh THE NIGHT. THAT WAS HOW I RENEWED MY POWER.
DECEMBER 15th, I BOUGHT MYSELF A br@ND NEW LEXUS JEEP, LASTEST MODEL. DECEMBER 20th, i BOUGHT MY FIRST DUPLEX. AN EIGHT be-dROOM DUPLEX, ALre-adY FURNISHED.
I WAS re-adY FOR DECEMBER. I COULDN’T WAIT TO GO HOME. I THOUGHT OF A MORE LOUDER WAY TO ANNOUNCE MT NEW STATUS. CRUSADE c@m£ TO MIND. I DECIDED TO ORGANIZE A VERY BIG CRUSADE IN MY VILLAGE. I ALSO HAD IN MIND TO RIDICULE PASTOR HEAVSON. I WENT TO HIS OFFICE WITH A BOTTLE OF VERY EXPENSIVE ITALIAN WINE TO MAKE HIM A GUEST SPEAKER IN THE CRUSADE. I ALSO GAVE HIM ONE MILLION NAIRA TO MAKE PREPARATIONS. HE COULDN’T RESIST THE HONOUR. HE OBLIGED.
I THOUGHT OF INVITING REVEREND JUDE, MY FATHER IN FAITH. I WENT TO HIS OFFICE. HE OFFERED ME SEAT. I SAT. MY REV LOOKED AT ME FOR TEN MINUTES AND bur-st INTO TEARS. I WAS AFRAID. MY DADDY IN THE LORD IS ALWAYS A MAN IN THE SPIRIT. THOSE TEARS TOLD ME HE ALre-adY KNEW.
MY DADDY KNEW, HE KNEW (crying). HE KNEW THAT THE KELVIN BEFORE HIM IS NO LONGER THE KELVIN HE KNEW. I WAS AFRAID BUT THEN, MORIAH c@m£ IN. SHE WAS INVISIBLE BUT I SAW HER. SHE ORDERED ME TO LEAVE AT ONCE. ONCE SHE IS AROUND, I LOOSE CONTROL OF MYSELF. I CAN ONLY CONTROL MYSELF TO DO WHAT SHE SAYS. AGAIN, REVEREND JUDE SAID….
-How terrible!!!! a child of God, now a son of balia, entangled with the daughter of darkness.
I BECOME MORE AFRAID.
-kelvin, he shouted. you have just made the worse decision. You just boarded a wrong flight my son. This flight is leading you to BERMUDA!!! have you heard of BERMUDA? It is said that no plane crosses and comes back. You are heading to BERMUDA, A PLACE OF NO RERURN. The door of grace is open for you my son. Cancel this flight NOW!!!
ON THE OTHER HAND, MORIAH WAS SCOLDING ME TO FOLLOW HER IMMEDIATELY. MY REV WAS SINGING….
Jesus, who gave his life for you
what have you done for him
He died on the cross, for you and me
He shed his blood, for all of us
He died on the cross, for you and me……
what have you done for him!!!
MY REV CRIED AS HE SANG. MORIAH FIRED BACK….
-don’t be a fool kelvin, where were they when you were duped and rejected, almost left to die. Where was he?
THAT’S RIGHT, I SAID. WHERE WAS HE!!!
I FOLLOWED MORIAH OUT!!!
TO BE CONTINUED…..
BERMUDA(a place of no return).
