What do you mean by that my brother, and why are you screaming this loud? I asked nervously.
My brother, you have been duped!
There are thieves hovering around this place imposing as workers, but because of our busy schedule, we are unable to monitor or rule them out. They have done same to several people. He explained.
No no no no no no! This is not happening to me! This can’t happen to a broke man like me who needs money to feed his home. I broke down in tears.
Sir please take it easy. The guy consoled.
I screamed so loud in tears of pain.
Sooner, people gathered around to console me.
What is happening here? A familiar voice asked when I was still on the floor wailing.
Boss, he has been duped. They informed.
I raised my head to look at who the person was, and it was my old time course mate back in the university.
Meshac my brother, what has happened to you? He hurriedly helped me unto my feet and began walking me to his office.
I narrated my entire life story in the city to him in tears.
As I speak to you my brother, food to eat is even a problem. I narrated.
Meshac, no one turns his back on God and survives.
Just like you, I was a sinner, until someone preached the gospel to me. I turned a new leaf and turned away from my old ways.
Meshac, it wasn’t easy initially, but by his abundance grace, here I am today.
From a mere village shoe repairer, to the general manager of this big garage.
Even though I don’t own the shop, everything has been entrusted into my hands, and I have as well entrusted it into the hands of God, and everything is falling in place. He narrated.
My brother, worshipping God is a game of survival and I can’t risk my life for it again.
When I devoted all my time to worship him, the kind of temptations I went through was too much. I explained.
Well Meshac, it is your choice and I can’t force you.
Anyway sorry for your loss. Take this 200cedis to manage your home for the time being. He said.
And please, in case you need spiritual help, don’t hesitate to come back. I will take you to my pastor to help you in prayers. He added.
I got back home in a devastating state.
I narrated everything to Shantel and heaven broke loose.
She gave me the insults of my life.
Finally, the issue went to rest and we began to rather think about how to feed.
Days later, I tried making love to Shantel, but I couldn’t have an erection.
Mesh, what is happening? It’s been three months now, and you have not been able to make love to me, are you ok? She asked.
Shants, I don’t know what is happening. Like you said, it’s been three months now, and no erection. I believe something is wrong somewhere. I explained.
Meshac I can’t take this! If you can’t feed my hungry stomach, I won’t allow you sexually starve me. Never! She screamed angrily.
Shantel please, this is the time I need you most. Please stay by my side. I pleaded in tears.
Stay by your side? I thought you didn’t need a barren woman like me in your home. What has changed? She asked in anger.
I tried my best for weeks, but not even a single erection in the dawn.
I then decided to talk to my course mate to introduce me to his Pastor for a spiritual intervention.
Welcome to my humble home bro Meshac. Please how may the head pastor of Christ Jesus’ Church International help you? The pastor asked after my mate introduced me to him when we got to his house.
I then took my time and told him all my problems.
Brother Meshac, you have sinned greatly against God and humanity and you need a great help. The pastor said.
Yes Pastor, that is why I am here. Please help me. I responded.
I wish I could help you, but unfortunately, the help must come from you and the person behind your suffering.
God revealed to me that, you have sinned against a lady called Esi, who is currently in a deep pit.
If she doesn’t forgive you, you will die in three months.
The lady killed her parents because of you, and when she confessed, instead of showing her the light by leading her to confess her sins to God for forgiveness, you rather jilted her to die.
Her lost soul is following you spiritually wherever you go.
Due to this, you will never get any job anywhere for the rest of your life. He explained.
Your wife has become barren due to that, and you have also become impotent.
Very soon, within three months, death, will be your portion. He revealed.
I broke down in tears.
Pastor please, what do I do now? I asked.
Meshac, you need to look for the lady and ask for her forgiveness. Again, you must bring her to the house of God for prayer of cleansing.
Remember, all these must be done within three months. He concluded.
I wept bitterly. God, where do I find Esi? Please show me the way, I don’t want to die. I prayed.
