Handkerchiefs & Aprons - by A.B.King


   Vincent and Amanda where a lovely couple. They were Pastors in their own ministry and Vincent had been blessed to see God work mighty miracles through him.
   Vincent and Amanda’s church was growing more because of the miracles. And something happened one Sunday Morning that took things to a whole other level. On that faithful Sunday Morning, Vincent had to go to preach at another church as a special guest preacher and his wife was left to preach in their church. While Vincent preached at that church, accidentally his handkerchief fell out of his pocket when he went into the crowd to lay hands on the sick. Someone picked up the handkerchief and the person got healed.
   Vincent was surprised.Everyone was surprised.
   At that moment a thought was born in Vincent’s mind.
   Later that day, Vincent told his wife what had happened. She too was surprised. They looked through the scriptures to see if anything of the sort had happened in the scripture. Perhaps the Bible would give them answers.
   Amanda soon found the scripture (Acts 19: 12) that said that Handkerchiefs & Aprons where taken from the body of Paul and that they were used to heal the sick.
   Amanda showed the scripture to Vincent and thus and idea was born in Vincent’s head. His earlier thought had metamorphosed into something else.
   Vincent bought several handkerchiefs & aprons and then he brought them to church. He would pray over the handkerchiefs & aprons and then he would give it to the people to take home with them and lay it on the sick or on themselves whenever they got sick.
   Many miracle reports came in. Soon the requests for the handkerchiefs & aprons where so many that Vincent could not afford them so he told people to buy them.
   More people kept demanding and bringing money to pay for Vincent’s handkerchiefs. Soon Vincent increased the price but he soon realized that no matter how much he increased the price, the demand increased too. In time he was selling an average of 20, 000 handkerchiefs a month at the price of 500, 000 per handkerchief. Now that’s a lot of money. The media didn’t know what to make of it because people were getting healed. Vincent was responsible for getting a lot of people healed and the people looked upon him as a hero so the News media no matter how anti – Christ they were couldn’t criticize him.
   One day, a stranger walks up to Vincent and warns him about what he is doing. He said that he gives him 1 week to stop selling handkerchiefs & aprons, that Apostle Paul didn’t sell his own handkerchiefs & aprons.
   Vincent told the stranger that many people are getting healed; more people are being reached than he could reach if he were to go one on one laying hands on people.
   The stranger told Vincent that he knows in his heart that what he is doing is wrong, it is not a matter that’s up for argument. He already knows what the right thing to do is but he is ignoring it.
   The stranger gave him three signs that would happen after the 1 week period if he doesn’t change, and the third sign would lead to death if he still doesn’t change.
   Vincent laughed and by the time he was through laughing and wanted to speak he didn’t see the stranger anymore. It was as if the stranger disappeared.
   Vincent figured that it was probably some wacko playing some sick game.
   Vincent tells his wife about it, but his wife thinks about it and says that who ever that stranger is, he has a point; that the idea of selling the handkerchiefs & aprons does feel wrong.
   Vincent got mad at his wife for what she said and walked out of the room.
   Amanda did some research and then God speaks to her. God shows her the scripture (Acts 8: 17 – 24) where Peter placed a curse on someone for trying to offer Peter and John money so that he can buy the anointing from him.
   What Vincent was actually doing was selling the healing anointing. Amanda now knew for a fact that it was wrong and she had it on good authority. Her husband was abusing the anointing.
   Amanda tries to tell her husband about it but he wouldn’t hear of it. He continues selling the handkerchiefs & aprons. Amanda begins to pray for him but Vincent persisted in his stubbornness.
   After the 1 week period the signs begin to happen.1st a secret from Vincent’s past resurfaces and a scandal is born. The scandal decreases his congregation by half but Vincent still didn’t change, he still sold the handkerchiefs & aprons.
   Next, the second sign came to pass.Vincent is blamed for stealing money from the people and asking for donations for purposes he didn’t use them for. The law suit uses up all his money; but Vincent still didn’t change, he still sold the handkerchiefs & aprons.
   Then, the third sign came.Vincent falls sick and is on his death bed.
   At this point, he is now certain that the message from the stranger is for real. There was no denying it.
   Vincent now finally gives his wife an opportunity to talk to him about it which she does and as she shows him the scriptures, he now knows the truth.
   Vincent repents and he stops selling the Handkerchiefs & Aprons.
   God then heals him and tells him to pack his bags and go with his wife to whatever country she chooses and he is to start his ministry afresh there.

The End.

Through Cold or Heat, Through Strength or Pain/
They Carry our Troubles, All Night, All Day/
They Risk their Future, To Keep us Safe/

After the West played Chess and won the Game/

Without Police in America, today/
Your Head and Your Body could be in different States/
One Part in Alabama, The Other part Up-State/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
We owe our Lives to Our Boys In Blue/
They carry the weight of the Red, White, and Blue/
And make it a Nation all Nations come to/

Rather Than Hate The Rich, Become Rich - a poem by Alfred

Crucify the Rich, Burn them at the Stake/
Punish them for succeeding, where the rest of us has failed/
Their Remote controls the State like the TV channels they made/
Only 1 per cent are safe, 99 per cent are slaves/
Occupy the 1 per cent, Hello to Project Eliminate/
We don't need rich people in the world, walk 'em to their grave/
Like Marie Antoinette, and then We Would Eat Cake/
All Rich People are Evil, Greedy, and Really Vain/
Away with Rich people, Let us dig their graves/
They plan to dig ours, I can see it in their ways/
Who needs the Rich to build Banks, Skyscrapers, and Planes/
Who needs the Rich to build Rockets to take us to Outer Space/
Wealth can't create more jobs than poverty makes/
Poverty is what this country needs, take wealth away/
Destroy the Rich to make the world a better place/
I hate Rich people, even though I work all day/
I'm sure it's no so I could be Rich some day/
And if I get Rich I would give it all away/
Because I hate Riches, I'…

Madiba Says - a poem by Alfred

Success awaits every man at the top of the hill/
But after she shakes your hands, you see another hill/
New hills grow taller if you pause to sleep/
Success has feet, she can just get up and leave/
A Real Leader must love this people more than he loves himself/
And be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for them/
He must be dead to self, and live for them/
Otherwise he might ruin them while saving himself/
Freedom doesn't mean having no chains on your wrists/
It struts forward to mean liberating others wrists/
So if you don't liberate others you're imprisoned yourself/
The walls are invisible but they are still there/
Education is the most powerful W.M.D/
To destroy the destruction of humanity/
Don't judge me by conquered Mountain Tops/
Judge me by the times I fell and got back up/
