Title of Today’s Story: Chosen to slay a Demon
Date: 29th May 2011 (Sunday)
CHOSEN TO SLAY A DEMON
Once upon a time, in a land far far away there lived a man named Froth. He was a super martial arts type warrior. He was the chosen one who carried the chosen sword.
Legend had it that the chosen one was to rid the world of the mighty evil demon, Karr.
Froth believed that legend, and he had trained all his life to fulfill it.
There was another side to the legend. It was that after Froth defeated Karr, that he would get married and live happily ever after with the beautiful Princess Jasmine.
However, in reality, Princess Jasmine loathed Froth.
Froth assumed that maybe after he fulfilled the 1st part of the popular belief and defeated Karr, the 2nd part would automatically fall into place. Maybe – perhaps – hopefully, the Princess would automatically begin to like him, he would court her, then marry her, then he would live happily ever after with her like the most perfect fairy tale.
Froth also didn’t like Princess Jasmine always talking about Jesus and how he is God and about how powerful he is. Froth figured he would fix that when he married her and she wouldn’t care about Jesus like the other women in the land far far away in which they lived.
Anyway, the faithful day in which he was destined according to legend to face Karr came.
Froth did all his fancy martial arts sword play. It was pretty impressive and he might have actually emerged the victor if what he was fighting was human.
Karr kicked Froth’s butt big time. He gave him a whooping he would never forget.
Just as Karr was about to strike the final blow, Princess Jasmine jumped in front of Froth, blocking Karr.
Froth was dumbfounded.
Jasmine looked at Froth and smiled. She asked him if his strength and trust in his own ability had helped him.
Princess Jasmine then told him to watch and learn how to defeat a demon.
As the demon leaped to tear Princess Jasmine to shreds, Princess Jasmine shouted, “I REBUKE YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS.” Immediately, the demon screamed as it melted into vapor.
“SEE”, Princess Jasmine said, turning to Froth. “You defeat demons by using the name of Jesus not using swords, weapons or Kung Fu. You defeat demons by using the name that is above all names, a name which you loathe. You could have died today if someone namely ‘me’ who believes in that name didn’t step in to save your arrogant life.” And walking away, Princess Jasmine added “… And you are not my type. Go look for another Princess. It is unwise for me to be yoked with an unbeliever.”
No one knew what happened next to Froth because he left the land forever.
The Princess later met and married a true Prince Charming who wasn’t arrogant and loved God with all their heart. And so the Princess and her Prince Charming lived happily ever after.
Q & A
1) Can demons be slain with mortal weapons and Kung Fu? Yes or No
2) Why wasn’t Froth, Princess Jasmine’s type?

PRAYER OF SALVATION:
If you’ve been touched by what you just read and you’ve never given your heart to Jesus before but now want 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)
So now 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 shall be saved’ , Therefore 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 FOR THE RETURNING BACK SLIDER (ONLY):
“Oh lord God, I ask for your mercy and forgiveness for turning my back on you. I come back to you today in total sincerity and like the parable of the prodigal son, I thank you for receiving me back with Joy and Gladness.
I confess that Jesus Christ is the lord of my life and God the father is my Daddy. Hallelujah!”
PRAYER TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT:
“Oh Father, I thank you now for making me born again. For making me your 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.
