The Blessing or The Blesser - a short story by A.B.King

   Stanley, was a mighty man of God who lived in the city of Port Harcourt. He did great exploits for God, and fame of his works of faith began to grow and spread to the uttermost corners of the earth.
   Stanley soon started healing the sick and performing miracles more than he read the bible for himself to attend to his own spiritual growth. His wife took notice of this so she respectfully confronted him about it.
   Stanley was like, “Say What?” He told her that he was healing the sick and preaching the word at his crusades like never before, so spiritually speaking; he’s on top of his game – his relationship with God and his spiritual life has never been stronger.
   Stanley’s wife told him that signs and wonders in a life of a minister are no sign of spiritual growth. That the way to grow spiritually is to study the word – to increase in the knowledge and revelation of God’s word, which is something he had not been doing of late. 
   She told him that he should remember that Jesus spoke about rejecting some people who would say, “…but didn’t we perform miracles in your name.” Jesus rejecting them based on what he said, wasn’t based on the authenticity or the source of the miracles, he actually insinuated that they didn’t know him. Meaning, all they cared about was healing the sick and performing miracles but they didn’t care about building a relationship with the one who gave them the power to perform the miracles.
   Stanley couldn’t believe his wife. He was like, she must be kiddin’, surely she can’t think his relationship with God and his level of spiritual growth back then when he didn’t have so many signs and wonders at his crusades is actually much better than now that he has them.
   Stanley discarded his wife’s warning and continued neglecting his private bible study time and focused on holding more miracles crusades.
   One year later, when Stanley’s wife was away at a Minister’s Conference on a Mediterranean cruise ship, Stanley fell sick.
   The sickness kept getting worse and worse until he had to be bedridden. Stanley prayed for days but his condition remained the same. It was then it dawned on him that by neglecting his personal bible study time he didn’t have enough word in him to fight through this trying time.
   The absence of the word leds to the absence of faith; because faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
   All the while the wife was warning him, he was looking at the miracles he was currently performing not knowing it was a result of the word he had previously received in his personal bible study time. The word was fuelling the faith to perform the miracles but now that there was no word in him – since he hasn’t been channelled into personally receiving the word for a long time, he had no more faith.
   He hadn’t forgotten all that he had read before but the faith wasn’t there because it requires continual feeding on the word.
   Now he could die for neglecting the word.
   However, fortunately for Stanley, his wife heard of his condition and flew back home on her private helicopter. She prayed a prayer of faith over him and he was instantaneously healed.
   Stanley learnt his lesson and never neglected his personal bible study time over again.

THE END.

Our Boys In Blue - a poem by Alfred

Through Cold or Heat, Through Strength or Pain/
They Carry our Troubles, All Night, All Day/
They Risk their Future, To Keep us Safe/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police, No one would be Safe/
Bodies would paint the Street like Syria Today/
After the West played Chess and won the Game/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
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/
Have you said Thanks, To a Cop today?/

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/


The Quotes By Nelson Mandela That Inspired This Poem:
1)  After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
2)  Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice …
