THE DEVIL ON THE ALTAR 24
Written by: Grace Olayemi

He had been excited when the duo told him of their intentions to tie the knot about eleven years back and he had happily blessed the union since he could vouch for Paul, he knew his daughter was in safe hands. But it had been from one problem to the other and when his daughter lost a six months old pregnancy and had her womb removed, his heart broke into many pieces and wished he had never given her to Paul. She wouldn’t give him a grandchild and he could not open his eyes to lose her too and that was why he had stayed close to them to always help out whenever a problem arose and that was a frequent occurrence.

Paul was bailed out of the prison the next day and taken to the hospital without his consent. He was placed on bed rest and diagnosed with some psychological complications. He became critical when the doctor discovered he had second degree prostate cancer. Deborah felt her whole life crashing when she heard the news of Paul’s condition.

“Does this mean he would die soon?” She asked in fear.

“Of course not! Remember we are children of God and have been given authority over every sickness and disease. We would pray and I trust God that he would intervene,” Pastor Raphael consoled his daughter.

They spent a fortune on his first surgery and his condition only grew worse. He was scheduled for another surgery when Deborah told her father about what a prophet told her sometimes back and it confirmed what Pastor Raphael had been hearing in his spirit.

“You mean the prophet told you that calamities would continue to befall him if he did not confess some things?” Pastor Raphael asked to confirm what she said.

“Yes dad!” Deborah replied and he sighed.

They went over to Paul’s room and luckily for them, he was conscious.
“How are you doing today?” Pastor Raphael asked him and he nodded indicating that he was fine.

“We are here to discuss something very important with you and we want you to calm down and think carefully before you answer us.”

“Ok,” Paul managed to say and Deborah was seriously fighting back the tears that were threatening to escape from her eyes as she saw her once handsome and agile husband who had become a shadow of his previous self.

“After much enquiry prayers on your condition, we have gotten to know that there were some things you did that are responsible for all the things happening to you. I would want you to think clearly and tell us about it so we can pray with you and take other steps we need to take,” Pastor Raphael tried to explain to him calmly. After a brief silence, Paul nodded his head in the negative making Deborah to scream at him.

“Don’t hide anything from us. You might die if you keep this up. Confess so you can obtain forgiveness and stop being hard-hearted.”

“Stop it, Debby. He doesn’t need this now. Just take things easy and let him think.”

“He wouldn’t confess. He has been denying it for years and has landed us in many calamites and even at the point of death, he is still denying it.”

“Leave us now,” Pastor Raphael commanded and Deborah left in tears.
Pastor Raphael tried everything in his power to make Paul confess to him at least he would know how to handle it. But Paul was on the defiant and after much trial, Pastor Raphael gave up with a heavy heart. He wondered if Paul was saying the truth or being adamant in falsehood.

Paul continued to deny the accusation that he had hidden things to confess and even when Deborah tried to persuade him, he was adamant.

He went in for the second surgery and almost lost his life. They prayed for him tirelessly and were more than convinced that his sufferings were as a result of some things he had done.

“If he wants to die, let him die. I think it would be better for me if I’m a widow than a wife to someone like Paul and I have to be the one paying for his sins,” Deborah lamented after she had another revelation pointing to the fact that Paul’s suffering was self-inflicted.

“Don’t

talk like that. We need to pray that God would touch his heart,” her mother said obviously fed up with the whole thing.

“That’s right,” the pastor agreed.
They spent the night praying that God would have mercy on Paul and touch his heart so he could confess and also give him another chance to make his way right.

They went to his room the next morning and like he had been touched with their prayers. They met him crying and asking for forgiveness for all the wrong things he had done.

Paul confessed the great atrocities he committed while he was the students fellowship’s president and while he was serving the nation as a corper.

He got to the position as a genuine child of God who was zealous for God. He was seduced into immorality by a lady who normally visited for counseling and one day, she brought food for him and that was all he could remember till he woke up and discovered what he had done. She disappeared after the act and somehow he could not stop himself. He would feel guilty at first but later he became hardened that whenever he picked interest in any sister or lady, he would not give up until he had his way with them. Later, he started using marriage to tie them down and make them do his bidding. He got engaged to many sisters and asked them to keep the relationship as a secret. He remembered Patricia and sighed. Pastor Raphael remembered her immediately; he mentioned her name as one of his victims and Pastor Raphael broke down in tears. The only one that was bold enough to run to him for refuge after the shepherd he placed over them was slaying them was sent into the open by him and was disgraced for owning up to the wrongs she did. Instead of him to help her like a father would his daughter, he threw her farther down.

Paul

mentioned the name of another lady who also lost her womb while aborting a pregnancy he was responsible for. Pastor Raphael wondered how his spiritual eyes were so darkened by his love for Paul to the extent that he could not discern any of the things that were happening right under his nose. He knew instantly that he was not fit enough to be called the shepherd of the flock of God and he now understood why his only daughter had to fall victim to such a man.

They all wept as they heard Paul’s shocking revelations and Deborah broke down completely when she heard that about two sisters lost their wombs while aborting Paul’s pregnancy. No wonder she could not conceive even if she went to Jupiter, she can’t bear a child for Paul who had willingly killed countless seeds God gave him.

“I’m so sorry for my foolishness, God,” Pastor Raphael managed to say amidst tears.

They all prayed for Paul from their hearts and began to contact the ladies to apologise to them. Some of them forgave him while the rest could not be contacted and he got an idea on how to reach them. He booked a slot on national TV and had a live broadcast from his hospital room to the whole nation asking for forgiveness but keeping the identity of the ladies private. A lot of press men began to parade the hospital to have an interview section with him but he declined them all.

He had a revelation where he saw himself being honoured on TV and press men falling on themselves to interview him. That was what his future would have been like if he had not used the opportunity God gave him to destroy his life and the life of those under him.
He spent his last days writing books to young ministers, ladies and the whole world at large admonishing them on the danger of fornication, unconfessed sins, disobedience and the importance of shepherds of God taking care of the flocks under them and not slaying them. He and his wife adopted a baby girl and he named her Patricia. He died of medical complications after a few years.
