It was the last Sunday before the case. Pastor King was determined to raise a prayer point for Pastor Chris. He sat with his wife and son waiting for the members of the church to come. He was beginning to get worried that at this time there was not even one person in the church.

Just then Brother Thomas came in with his family.

Thomas: Pastor, what is going on? Where is everybody? At a point, I almost turned back because I felt no one was in here. Where is everybody?

Pastor King smiled before answering.

Pastor King: Brother Thomas, the people is who you are seeing right now.

Thomas: I don’t understand, what do you mean these are the people?

Just then sister Happiness walked in, her pregnancy has already began to show very well. She came in with a friend. And not quite long four other persons joined them. Pastor King began the service and he led the praise and worship and began to preach. In total they were 12 in number.

Pastor King preached on the topic. STANDING FIRM IN GOD IN TIMES OF TRIALS. he spoke and had examples with Job in the Bible and how he stood firm in God refusing to curse him even when his own wife turned against him. At the end he told the people not to be discouraged by what they see or hear because victory is near.

Then he raised prayer points on behalf of Pastor Chris, urging them not to be carried away by whatever proofs would be presented in church. He told them that God has told him that Pastor Chris was innocent and even if the court says otherwise he will hold onto what God told him. He encouraged the church to do the same and stand by their pastor till the end. He prayed that as they continue to stand by Pastor Chris, God will also stand by them.

At the end of the service, Brother Thomas expressed his fear for the church as the number of persons kept reducing.

King: Brother Thomas this is how the judgement day will be like. The road to heaven will be scanty with people while the road to hell would be filled with people. Do not be discouraged. The church will rise again.

Then he went ahead to ask Brother Thomas about the lawyer for Pastor Chris.

Thomas: Yes pastor! Everything is in place. Tomorrow he will be in court and I believe with God on our side he will be able to bring Pastor Chris from prison. I can’t imagine the pains our pastor had gone through in this one month.

Pastor King: I believe in God, I have prayed I have fasted. And I know by tomorrow he will be released.

Thomas : Amen. Pastor worry not

They shook hands before Thomas walked away.

Meanwhile somewhere in Lagos, Brother Chuks was having his wedding done. It was a big party and the whole place was jam packed.

The girl seems to have come from a prominent family and there were so many dignitaries around. Nobody knew how Gift got to hear about the wedding. But she sat at a corner there watching as Chuks marries someone else and she could not help the tears that kept falling from her eyes as she thought about the pains that she went through in the hands of this man.

Everyone was sitted in court as they waited for the judge to come in. Pastor Chris was led in by the police in chains, he was looking so dark, thin and pale. He turned to look around to see if Pastor King was there, because he was earlier told by one of the policemen that all his supporters had abandoned him and that even Pastor King would not be coming to court. When he didn’t see Pastor King in the room he became so dull and sad.

Douglas and the lady who had accused Pastor Chris stepped into the court, different people who were obviously supporters to the lady were all there. Some members of the church were in court also but from the way they talked with the lady and frowned when looking at Pastor Chris he knew they were not for him.

He wondered if Pastor King had really abandoned him. He stood in the investigation box and looked up to heaven. The judge was yet to come and there was murmuring and little gossips in the court room.

Pastor Chris raised his voice to heaven and with tears in his eyes he called out to God singing.

‘Why should I feel discouraged,
Why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely,
And long for heaven and home,
When Jesus is my portion
My constant friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow,
and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

I sing because I’m happy,
I sing because I’m free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

”See him singing like an angel whereas his heart is that of a devil” one of the women murmured, ”shut up there o make I nor hit you with this stick when dey my hand o, one of the policemen shouted at him.

Just then the judge walked in, and everywhere became quiet. The people all settled in their seats. As the case was about to be called, Pastor King walked in, with sister Happiness, Brother Thomas and the new lawyer. When Pastor Chris saw them his face lit up as he smiled.

The case was introduced, and the lawyers stood up to introduce themselves. Brother Thomas’s lawyer introduced himself as Pastor Chris’s new lawyer who is now in charge of the case. The lady suddenly became uncomfortable.

”What is it?” Douglas asked her

”I don’t know, I suddenly became uncomfortable, I have a funny feeling that this case is about to take a twist” she replied.

”What do you mean by that? What kind of twist?” Douglas asked.

”I don’t know but something doesn’t just feel right.” She said

”Cou……..rt” the clerk man shouted and everyone kept silent.

The case was about to begin…….
