Sword crashing
one could see the friction that was going on between the swords
All 4 swords crashed together.

A battle is taking place
give way
One angel of God and three demons fighting against the angel of the lord

The swords of their swords were like that of thunder.
4 swords crashing against one another
Give way if you are human
for you can never tell what sword can mistakenly strike you
Clear the path oh mankind for there are swords crashing together.

Give way mankind for the battle taking place is a battle for the soul of a certain man called Reuben.

One soul has caused this fierce battle
and none of these warriors refuse to give up.
Is Reuben the only soul that needs to be saved?
Why should the angel care if he loose him? After all their are millions of souls to fight for.

What makes Reuben different? Is he not like others?
It amazed me that the question i asked never bothered the angel.
His mission to snatch the soul of this man from these demons is a mission that he must not fail.

Oh angel, why do you fight alone?
Are their so many souls to be delivered?
Is heaven short of angels?
Are the angels on strike or are they afraid?
Why do you fight alone?

This angel refuses to speak
He will not be distracted.
I see him fight and the battle seems lost
but he fights on.
Reuben must be a prince
but i see no ring on his finger.
So who is Reuben?
What counts him worthy?

If angels could bleed i would say he bled
the swords of the demons hit on him.
I feared for him.
How i wish i was an angel
I would have fought on his behalf
If only i could fly i would have bounced on the demons

My heart within me burns with tears
i refuse to see the angel of the lord defeated
I have never seen or heard of God's angels loosing a battle.

I cried out save him or her for i could not tell the sex of the angel.
As i cried i began to hear the scream of Reuben.
One of the demons had advanced towards him
He pulled his hands tight.
I feared the arms of Reuben will be broken apart.

If i cannot fight with my man made weapon
What can i use?
I looked at my back
hoping to find an answer
it was then my eyes and ears were opened
People were on their knees praying
Every word that came out of their lips were like arrows pinning the powers of darkness.
The demons screamed in pains

I began to laugh
i began to laugh
Is not one angel against 3 demons
Behold the prayer of the saints
Their prayer is a weapon for pulling down strongholds.

I saw them,
I saw the demons pull back
grinding their teeth
filled with pains of defeat

Reuben laid flat
he was unconscious
his body had been bruised badly
I wept because of the burns and wounds on his body.
No man deserves this. No man.
His body smelled of burnt flesh and blood

I wiped for him over and over again
The fight for Reuben is over but for how long?
Will Reuben not go back to the world and become of the world?
How many times will God save him?
What if this battle is his last rescue. Who shall deliver him?

If the lord almighty desires not to deliver a man,
no man or being can save him.

Reuben! I beg you in the name of God
Do not go back to where you came from
6 demons awaits you and they are determined to increase their number.
I saw them hiding by the gate of lust.
Don't go back Reuben.
Let tomorrow not be your end.

I suddenly opened my eyes
It was a dream but i was afraid of what i had dreamt
for behold,
there are so many Reuben's who need to be saved
I must be prepared to reach out unto them
Oh soldiers of the living God gets thy armor and sword ready
There a battle going on. Lets go and win souls
