I’m not going to reiterate what the pastor said, suffice it to say
that it was the usual sermon on faith, love hope and
prosperity. The pastor preached with enthusiasm and I was
pleasantly surprised to find out that he made sense. He didn’t
have any manifestation whatsoever so I was all the more
Nina dutifully took down notes in a jotter and opened to every
Bible verse quoted by the pastor. I tried to concentrate as
much as I could on the service although I found myself
stealing glances and exchanging smiles and giggles with Nina
at every opportunity.
The pastor reached a crucial point in his preaching and asked
those people with various ailments to come forward. Soon the
alter was filled with all sorts of people, those with genuine
sicknesses and those who came just to fulfil all righteousness.
We all joined in prayer, led of course by the pastor.
We had been praying like this for a few minutes when I heard a
scream. My eyes had been closed so I opened them. And saw
one of the sick members who had come for prayers on fire. I
gasped in shock but soon realised it was only a manifestation.
She twitched and turned and spun around all in an attempt to
put the fire out to no avail. Finally she fell to the floor and then
I was still wondering where the fire had come from when I saw
another person this time a male, light up. But then the fire had
come from somewhere. I watched closely as the pastor
brought out something from a bottle and sprayed it on those
he was praying for. Anyone whom the substance touched went
up in flames. For a moment I thought, this was the genuine
thing, the pastor was gifted with…and then I saw the vulture
on the choir mistress head cackle and spit out more of
thesubstance into the bottle. No one else ccould see it but the
choir mistress made a move anytime the vulture on her head
was disturbed. As usual I knew immediately what was going
on. And it was absolutely none of my business. So i stayed
I ignored the voice of Pachios in my mind.
HELP HIM” He repeated.
“No!” I realised i had spoken out loud when Nina turned
towards me. I continued “no weapon fashioned against me…!”
And she turned back and continued her prayers.
I thought: “come on Pachios. Its really none of my business. I
dont see anyone getting hurt and i dont want to cause a
“Look at them.” He said. I watched the choir mistress as she
herself watched those that had fallen to the floor. There was a
satisfied look on he face. I turned my attention to the pastor
and he seemed unsure of what he was doing.
“She will be his downfall if you dont help him.”
I told Nina to give me a moment, I don’t think she heard me,
she was too busy staring in amazement at the other members
that were manifesting. I walked into the group at the alter and
asked the pastor to pray for me. He obliged immediatelyand
took me aside. He started his prayers and I followed suit. He
lay his hand on my forehead and I spun around and fell
forward so that he had to catch me to prevent me from falling.
While bringing me up I had enough time to whisper in his ear.
“Don’t use the water anymore.”
“Eh, my son, what did you say?” He asked.
“The water. You do not need it. Its going to destroy your
ministry. You know how your wife got it. You know how you
objected to it before she strong armed you into accepting it.
This does not glorify the one you worship. And it does not
come for free. Abandon this false power now before you run
All this while the pastor held me. It seemed that we were
praying together so the others left us alone. For a moment I
thought he was going to throw me off or call security or
something. That would be difficult to explain to Nina if he did. I
held my breath…and then I felt him shake as he sobbed gently
unto my shoulder.
Oh no. Please don’t make a fuss, please don’t make any funny
“Thank you my son!” He was crying now, more loudly. I didn’t
really know what to do so I patted him on the back and pried
myself from his embrace. As I walked back to my seat I saw
people staring at me with a puzzled expression on their face.
The pastor fired a final tearful “GOD bless you my son!” just as
i was reaching my seat. Nina stared at me, a surprised look on
her face. I ignored her and faced my front just in time to see
the pastor walk to the edge of the alter and empty the contents
of the bottle on the floor. His wife the choir mistress looked
like she was going to have a heart attack. He boldly walked
back and approached his wife. Without a word he took
something from her hand and I saw the vulture screech angrily
and fly off. His wife looked on in shock. The congregation
watched all of this but there was no way of understanding
what the pastor’s actions meant. He motioned for everyone to
go back to their seat. And then he started another sermon, this
time preaching on faithfulness and purity and the strength of
the Word of GOD.
