Maxwell Smart, secret agent extraordinaire, arrived at Control Headquarters with a look of despair painted across his normally amicable features.
‚ÄúMind control, eh? So that‚Äôs what those dastardly Khaos proponents of wickedness are now up to. I must talk with the Chief!‚ÄĚ Walking through the elaborate security screens, check-points and sliding panels towards the Chief‚Äôs office, Max paused to call his heavily pregnant wife, agent 99, on his secret watch-phone.
After what seemed an eternity, she answered in a strange mechanical-sounding voice, ‚ÄúThis is Control agent 99, and I report that things are definitely not in control...‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúHoney, it‚Äôs Max. Cut the secret agent talk.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúThis does not compute. Things are out of control...‚ÄĚ
Max disengaged the phone. Hmmm, looks like even 99 has come under the control of Khaos‚Äôs new mind control plan. I wonder who else has succumbed to the fiendish rays of the mind control lazer-beam?
‚ÄúChief, we have to talk.‚ÄĚ Striding purposefully into the Chief‚Äôs office, Max pulled the over-padded armchair closer to the desk.
‚ÄúI believe that Khaos‚Äôs final master plan to seize control of the entire world is now in operation.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúYes, Max. I have the intelligence report right here.‚ÄĚ Usually nervous, the Chief absent-mindedly toyed with the alarming communiqu√© lying on his desk. ‚ÄúMax, even the President of the USA has been captured through the mind control device and just moments ago he handed control of the country over into Khaos‚Äôs hands. The top Military Commanders also have sworn allegiance to the nation's new Supreme Commander, none other than Boris Offhisrockernoff!‚ÄĚ
Max‚Äôs jaw dropped in disbelief. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs worse than I thought!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúThe game is lost, Max. Khaos has taken complete control. This signals the end of ‚ÄėControl.‚Äô
‚ÄúDon‚Äôt be so hasty. Chief. I have a plan that will turn Khaos on its head!‚ÄĚ
The Chief rolled his eyes. He had seen enough of Max‚Äôs disastrous hare-brained ideas.
‚ÄúCone of Silence please, Chief.‚ÄĚ
With a deep sigh of resignation, the Chief pushed the button concealed under his desk. Immediately the Cone of Silence descended over the two men.
‚ÄúChief,‚ÄĚ Max shouted from within the dome. The sudden burst of reverberating sound caused the Chief to jerk backwards, cracking his head painfully on the four-inch thick metal casing.
‚ÄúMAX! How many times have I told you to whisper in the Cone of Silence.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúChief, the whole world is in the control of Khaos. Even Control has lost control.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúYes, Max...‚ÄĚ the Chief moaned, wiping the sweat gathering on his brow. ‚ÄúCan you hurry this up...‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúYou can‚Äôt rush brilliance, Chief! Here‚Äôs the plan: we have to get control of ‚ÄėControl,‚Äô and control the controllers.‚ÄĚ Max peered across at the Chief with a smug look on his face. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs a fool-proof plan! It will work because God is on our side.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúWhat are you saying, Max!? The Chief was struggling to compose himself. ‚ÄúHave you lost control of your mind, too?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúLook, Chief... it makes sense. God is always on the side of the good guys and works against the bad guys, right! He‚Äôs in control of everything and everyone.‚ÄĚ
The Chief buried his head in his hands.
‚ÄúSee, God even controls the controllers without them even knowing that a higher power is controlling them. He always frustrates their diabolical plans and directs us in ‚ÄėControl‚Äô to take control over their despicable plans, so that goodness will ultimately reign!‚ÄĚ
Max‚Äôs smile stretched from ear to ear. The Chief wept uncontrollably.
‚ÄúJust wait and see Chief. Everything really is in control!‚ÄĚ
To be continued...
Proverbs 21:30. NIV. ‚ÄúThere is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the LORD.‚ÄĚ
