A SIMPLE PRANK CALL
(Written by Alfred Benjamin King)

Once upon a time, in a place called Alabama, there lived two twins. They were both 8 year old boys. There Mum had died during childbirth. Peter was the troublesome and dominant one, while John was the gentle but easy to manipulate one.
One afternoon during summer break they were both bored. Peter got an idea that he was sure would break his boredom.
“Let’s get on the phone and make prank calls,” Pater said.
John taught about it for some time then said, “Okay!”
They were at it for 20 minutes, making up random phone numbers and pretending to be anyone or anything from the President of the United States to an alien from a Planet Mars looking for a human family to settle in.
Later Peter noticed a small wad of papers with phone numbers on it. He picked it up. It was his Dad’s hand writing. Peter’s eyes immediately riveted at a name he had heard his father insult before. It was Jeremiah Cohen, the C.E.O of the largest bank in Alabama.
Peter suggested they make a prank call to the man, saying they were professional assassins and where coming for him that night.
John explained that he didn’t feel right about what they were doing, especially the current plan of pretending to be assassins. John told Peter that this went against everything they had learnt in Sunday School.
Peter laughed at John and told him he worries too much. They are just having fun, what is the worst thing that can happen? Besides that Christianity thing is just a thing that is done on Sunday’s only. Nobody plans to live their life playing by Christian rules everyday of their lives – not even preachers.
John taught about it for a while then agreed.
They had fun, if not more fun making that one particular call than any other call they had made that day, and as Peter had said not had happened. They went along with the rest of the day as they always have; Dad came back from work, the twins, ate, played, watched more TV, ... just routine.
The next day a cop came knocking. He said that Mr. Jeremiah Cohen was assassinated last night and they found a message cluing them on who did it on his answering machine.
The cops believed the twins where trying to warn Mr. Jeremiah Cohen of their Dad’s plan or they were just as twisted as their Dad and were conspirators with him.
The twins Dad had not held back his resentment for Mr. Jeremiah Cohen, everyone in Alabama knew he hated him, which made it no surprise when he was named the only suspect.
It was an unfortunate coincidence that the same day the twins had decided to make that prank call someone else had planned to and succeeded in assassinating Mr. Jeremiah Cohen. But who would believe them now?
The twins Dad was put in jail for murder and the twins were sent to a government orphanage.
Maybe next time they won’t restrict Christianity to Sunday’s only.

PRAYER OF SALVATION:
If you’ve been touched by what you just read and you’ve never given your heart to Jesus and would love to become a Christian, please say this prayer and mean it with all your heart :
“Oh Lord God, I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ. Your word says, ‘… whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved’ ( Acts 2:21 )
I ask Jesus to come into my heart to be the lord of my life. I receive eternal life into my spirit and according to Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved, “I declare that I am saved; I am born – again; I am a child of God! I now have Christ dwelling in me, and greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world! ( 1 John 4:4 ). I now walk in the consciousness of my new life in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!”
PRAYER TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT:
“Oh Father, I thank you now for making me born again. For making me you child.
I ask that you give me your Holy Spirit to live in me and with me. For your word says that you would freely give the Holy Spirit to all those who ask. I open my heart and receive and I know by faith that you have given me your Holy Spirit. Thank you Father. In Jesus name. Amen.
CONGRATULATIONS! YOU ARE NOW A CHILD OF GOD. WELCOME TO THE FAMILY OF GOD.
