PostSubject: "The Calling" a short story by joshuajared2000   Thu May 28, 2009 3:20 pm

Jason didnt have many friends. Some stayed away from him b.c of his looks. Hair died red and black, only 5 feet, slightly over weight. Some didnt like his attitude about life, "were all gonna die oh well".
every day was the same for Jason. School, he hated school. always getting picked on, always a put down. lunch was usually ok, but thats because he always ate alone. the Walk home was never fun. normally people from school would follow him home and toss him into the garbage cans in the ally.

Kris wasnt your normal teenage girl. 17 was a turning point, a right of passage for all children. limits tested and personalitys grown. but some thing was different with her. She cared about every one. mostly for those who hurt. She always tryed to make friends with the "out cast" kids in school first.

Today was just another day untill she met Jason. Lunch had just ended and she was walking the halls when some kids came up behind jason and shoved him into a locker. books falling to the floor and home work being steped on.
No one ever said any thing.. untill today.

"HEY BACK OFF!" yelled kris. "BACK OFF I SAID! HE DIDNT DO ANY THING!" the kids eventually did back off, and Kris bent over and started picking up the books and papers.
Standing she handed them to Jason "im sorry, no one deserves that"
she said with sad eyes. "what do you care? no one does"
was his reply and he turned and left school, 3 hours early.

Walking home kris had a talk with GOD that would change her life.
"Lord i dont know what to do. My heart feels so broken" she prayed.
"what you do to the least of these you do to me" God spoke back.
the feeling made her stop, as tears swelled in her eyes.
She thought of that movie, the passion, and Jesus getting beat.
then she thought of Jason.
"though my people wander, i am there" Said God.
for a moment she pictured Christ being pushed into the lockers.

"but lord what can we do? its obvious hes hurting"

then some thing happened. some thing Kris was never expecting..
"You will help him, pray for him, do battle for him. I am calling my children to me, and through you Jason will know my son..

and the calling had come. the mission was set.
When she reached home, kris immideatly went up to her room, setting her books down she begain to pray for Jason.



3 miles away the spiritual relm was in utter chaos. Demons flying about, swords drawn. "SOME ONE IS PRAYING!!!!" yelled a demon. A Spiritual War had begun.

(more coming soon)

PostSubject: The Calling Part 2   Thu May 28, 2009 4:58 pm

Jason was fast asleep, but his dreams were as active as a 90 mile an hour highway. Tossing and turning his sleep was restless. Little did he know the spiritual world was going haywire.

"Don’t let him out of your site!!" yelled Kadar, a demon General in the army of Satan. "FEAR! remind him every day they want to hurt him, Depression! Let him know how different he is!" he yelled the commands.

"Sir, why are we working so hard for just one soul?" asked a short wingless demon.

"Fool, Jehovah has awakened some one to prayer. The fight is now more important then ever"


miles away Kris was wide-awake praying for Jason. It was amazing her more and more how much love she could feel for him as she prayed. It was as if she could feel Gods love for this one person and it was mind changing.

"Keep him safe lord, send angels to speak to his heart, protect him from the demons Lord" Kris prayed.

Kneeling beside her were two angels, Amar and Gantor, arms raised giving honor and praise to Jehovah GOD. Agreeing with her in prayer over Jason.

Soon the prayer ended and the angels stood. Gantor turned to Amar and smiled "she is taking this with great eagerness. I must admit im surprised. Will she be in any danger?" he asked.
Amar look at his friend. They had been great friends since the fall, and the war in heaven. Satan himself tempted Gantor, but Gantor stood strong and remained with Jehovah.

"Gantor, I know only what the Lord chooses me to know. This is dangerous ground, spiritual war. We must remain vigilant," replied Amar

Jason entered the lunchroom of school and took a seat at a corner table.
Taking a bite of his sandwich, he scanned the lunch hall looking at all the faces. Every one seemed so... normal.
"Your soo odd Jason, you don’t belong!" yelled the demon despair.

Out of know where shot a stream of light, smashing into the demon.
"What seek you Angel of the LORD" pulling a sword from its sheath he yelled.
"Demon this soul has been claimed by the blood of the LAMB! your will remain silent until Jason chooses to hear you" replied the angel.
The demon yelled and leapt at the angel, and before he could react, the angel pulled his sword and sent the demon back to hell.

"YOULL NEVER GET THIS SOUL!” Yelled another demon as he sped out of the room to his commander.

Kris had just walked into the lunch hall and saw Jason, as usual sitting alone. Taking a seat opposite his she sat and started talking to him.

"Hi Jason. Im sorry. For what you have to put up with." she started.
"Why do you care? You are just doing the "right" thing. Every one does once in a while". He replied.
"Ya know, would it be ok if I prayed for you? I do not know what you believe but it might help. Its not like you have any thing to lose" she said with a smile.

Suddenly Kris didn’t know what to pray for. *lord what should we pray for?* she though. Trusting her Lord to lead her she took his hand in hers. She begain to pray for him. and his safty in the school.

Letting go of his hands Kris looked surprised. she didnt really know what she just prayed over. she could remember asking God to keep him safe at school, but that was it.

"well there ya go, you did your christian duty" said Jason. "now... mind if I eat?........alone?" he asked.

Kris stood up "sure thing" she said as she left and joined another table.

Back in the unseen relm the spirits were buzzing. A new demon was in the school, and he didnt like what was going on.
"YOU THERE!" he said pointing to a demon "WHY ARE YOU NOT ACTIVE?"
"my lord, the women kris, she has used the power of jehovah" was the screached reply "by his name we can not move" he finished.

"My fellow demons. Allow me to instruct you in the ways of Jehovah GOD." said the new demon. "This pathetic demon here is right, that he can not activate over Jason. however he is wrong about being active" turning to the demon who was forced silent by the SPirit of GOD, he pointed a finger...

"YOU WILL become active. Kris is under no ones protection, and you will assult her. Tear her soul to sheds!!!! her dreams will become nightmares, her visions will become visions of pain, her joy will become sadness"

Looking at all those in the room he turned back to the demons once again
"when jehovah God speaks to his people to stop us, we will attack those doing the prayer.. you see prayer is their power!! and when you weakin a chain link, does not the chain break?" he questioned them "attack her and when she gives up, then jason will be ours once again"

Some time later two angels apeared beside Kris as she walked home.
"brother" said one of the angels. "were we not just in Israel?"
The other angel turned to his friend, "Jehovah needs us here" was the reply.

And right he was. At that moment hords of demons were speaking to the spirits and minds of a local school gang.

"LIAR!!, SHE WILL RUIN EVERY THING!!" yelled one demon to the kids
"SHE SEEKS TO STOP YOU! TO TAKE AWAY YOUR POWER!" yelled another
"BREAK HER! STOP HER! YOUR SOUL DEMANDS JUSTICE!" screamed more demons.

as the boys and girls of the gang listened to the evil spirits more and more, their hearts grew bitter. Almost as if the thoughts were of their own. picking up a baseball bat the leader turned to the group.
"I dont konw whats going on but this girl has got to go. shes in our town, and she is going to make this more difficult then it needs to be. lets go" and they took off.

"jehovah, peace be upon the young lady you have given us charge over. keep her safe and with you" prayer an angel over kris. "yes LORD, allow her a spiritual look that she might know the attacks of the evil ones" prayed another.

suddenly kris stopped... a thought, a flash of lightning running through her soul. She knelt down and begain to pray for jason.
"Lord, its me Kris. I dont know really what I feel, but Lord I have an idea. " she smiled as she continued her prayer "Jesus, Reveal to him the truth. Show him the battle that rages on. you say we right against spirits. Show him the truth of your word. well Jesus, there it is.. thats my idea. but above all LORD, YOUR WILL BE DONE" she finished

"YOUR WILL BE DONE" echoed the angels everywhere.
"YOUR WILL BE DONE, YOUR WILL BE DONE. TO THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS YOUR WILL BE DONE" was the prayer of millions of angels everywhere.

Although she didnt know it, Kris had become a kindeling flame. and like all kindled flames, this one was about to burn into a blaze.
( More coming soon )

its was dark out now, and kris hurried home. The ally wasnt the best place but it was the fastest way home. Suddenly she felt like fear itself was tearing at her very soul. She didnt know why but she couldnt shake the feeling.

"thats her" pointed out one of the kids from the gang. "get her" yelled another. and they took off. A young girl from the gang reached kris first and shoved her into a garbage can.

"whats going on? who are you?" asked kris looking arround.
another blow landed on her right cheek, and a third sent her flying back against the garbage can again. this time cutting her above the eyebrow.

The demons were glisting with an evil happiness. "get her!" they yelled, while others chanted still, "break her! before she cost you ever thing", "shes a danger to you all" yelled more.

As kris felt the blood coming down her face the cut hurting she remembered Christ as he suffered. For what seemed like an eternity she couldnt understand why she was thinking of him. if she only could see into the relm of the spirit she would understand.

"its ok kris" said one angel. "remember Christ! he hurt for you! "

as they spoke to her soul, her soul spoke to her mind. bringing it all together.

as the beatings continued she found the strength to pray, and pray out loud. "FATHER! just as those before i ask you to forgive these who attack me"

she looked up to see a foot connect with her chest as she fell finishing the prayer. what she didnt see was the other attackers stop dead in their tracks.

a light from the angels broke through to the eyes of the demons and those fighting with kris.

"TOUCH NOT! THE CHILD OF THE KING OF KINGS" yelled an angel.
"REMOVE YOURSELFS FROM THESE CHILDREN AND BEGONE WITH YOU SPIRITS OF THE FALLIN ONE" said another.

at once the demons departed with sheaks and the kids ran in fear.


kris stood up and ran home.
What she didnt see was jason. who for some reason felt the need to follow her home, he too saw the angels. for now he knew only this, there was something, some one looking out for kris.

She had some one behind her of power. maybe this christian thing wasnt a joke.

*tomorrow* he thought *ill ask her tomorrow* and with that he turned and walked home.

As Jason walked home his mind was going crazy.. *has to be the drugs* he thought. "theres no way what i just saw was real" he said silently.

When he got him he took a book from his computer desk. the years of dust making it clear this book had not been opened in years.

Turning to the back of the book he found what he was looking for.
[ANGELS: see] and he started writing down every mention of angels.
Tonight would be the first time in 6 years he would open the bible and start a most exellent journey.

The next day at school Jason could hide his eagerness to talk to kris.
Every question he would think of, he would write down, making notes to ask her after school.

"God has a plan for you Jason, a plan to prosper in many ways" said an angel behind him.
"no he does not! its a lie! all lies" said a demon. The moment he spoke was the last moment on earth for that demon, for no sooner did he finish the sentance then the blade of the angels sword slice through him.

Fear and peace seemed to be battling within Jason. he knew he was on dangerous ground.
After school kris saw Jason walking over to her so she waited up for him.
Hearing some of his questions and missing the others they decided it would be best to walk home and talk.

"i guess what im wondering Kris is.... who were they?" asked Jason.
"i dont know, some kids from a gang i think. but i dont know why they went after me" replyed Kris as she touched the bruise on her face.
"no, not them, the two guys behind you. with the swords" asked Jason. He felt stupid but he had to know.
"who?" kris stopped walking and turned to Jason.
"when you were on the ground, out of know where these two Guys just.... ok your gonna call me crazy but they just.. showed up!! from no where" said Jason with some excitment.
"you mean... you saw some thing? some one? what did they say?" she asked back.
"well, the first one said "touch not the Child of the king of kings" and the kids looked scared, then the second one said some thing like "spirits of the fallin one" was Jasons reply.
"Jason, those were angels.." said Kris, almost as if she expected it.
"but why then? why not before the attack? " again Jasons questions came.

kris looked at jason and smiled as she said
"ya know Jason, i dont know every thing.. but i know GOD does what he does when he does it."

they walked home in silence the rest of the way, parting each other as they reached Kris's home. "ya know heres my number in case ya ever wanna talk some more" jason said as he handed her a note with the number on it. Jason continued to walk home thinking about the answer hed Got.




Later that night Jason heard the phone ring but thought nothing of it, no one calls this late for any one but dad. rolling back over he tryed again to go to sleep but couldnt. sitting up Jason started to talk to some one hed never talked to before.

"God, hi ... im jason. i know kinda stupid right? you know who i am im sure. " he stopped, thinking he heard his name being called and when he was sure he was wrong he continued.

"Well God, heres the thing. Kris seems pretty cool about you. Not sure what i feel other then, i think shes got to at lest have an idea of who you are.. and id kinda like to know to. so im gonna pray like she told me to, and ill let you do the rest."

"God, im a sinner. if we were basing this just on the ten commandments i think i would have broken them all. but i know your bible says you forgive. so i need that. and kris said i needed to ask you Jesus to be my lord and savior. so im asking for that too.. in Jesus name amen"

"AMEN AMEN! GLORY TO THE LORD ON HIGH! WHO WAS WHO IS AND WHO IS TO COME" came a victory change from angels all over the world.
every where in the relm of the spirit the demons were forced to listen to a 20 minute celebration of the Victory of Jehovah.

Jasons Door flew open and his dad looked really bothered.
"dad i can explained" said jason, thinking his dad over heard his prayer and was upset.
"Jason theres plenty of time for this later, you have a phone call" and jasons dad handed him the receiver. "hello this is Jason" he said.
"hello sir, my name is kerry im from Con tech hospital. There is a young lady here, her name is KRIS, she is asking if you would come down."

Jason half jumped from his bed and stood up "KRIS??? what happend
why is she at the hospital?" he asked... but got nowhere as the
hospital would tell him nothing.




Tears fell from his eyes, he knew with out a doubt, this is why he had
seen the angels. Kris told him once, that ever one has a time to die..
but in her eyes, she said it was really a time to live.


He started to ask his dad for a ride but his father smiled and said "get your coat and lets go"
Taking off they made there way to the hospital in less time then Jason thought it would take.
He finally Found her room and she didnt look good at all. Her
mom and dad were there, and alot of other people Jason could only guess
were family.



"hey goofball" he said as he walked over to her bed "ya know if you
wanted to see me all you had to do was call me over, you didnt have to
do all of this" Kris smiled, that is one thing she always did like was
his humor.


"Jason sit down so we can talk" as Jason sat down he thought it odd
that every one else left almost on cue.. "whats goin on kris?" he
asked.


"Jason i have cancer. and its time. im sorry i dont know how else
to say it. its been getting worse for a while now" and she told him her
story, how cancer had attacked her, and she was forced to use a wig
because her hair was gone from the treatments.


tears flowed again from Jasons eyes, "but this isnt" he started to
say but stopped. "jason i dont want to die" she cryed taking his hand
in hers.


"im sorry i called you, im sorry to hurt you, but i dont have that many
people and i just felt i had to call you.. i dont understand why GODs
time has to be now"



and for once the tears stopped, and smile crept forward as jason said
"ya know Kris, i dont know every thing.. but i know GOD does what he does when he does it."
"You really were listening !" said Kris with some excitment.
"And i really do believe Kris." she smiled and Jason squeezed her hand.

"hey, what do the weak christians do when times get hard?" said Jason.
"i dont know what"? replyed kris.


"they pray to him who is strong" and Jason did just that. Prayed
like he never did in his life. with her family listening and the
doctors wiating, he thanked GOD for her family, and for her. for him
being woken up to GOD and his Son. He did ask GOD to stay the time, but
as he finished his prayer he was ok.. b.c as kris had said...
Death was never the end.. it was only the start of LIFE.....


That day was the hardest day of Jasons life. But God did have a plan.
And as time went on Jason and the family of Kris become very close. He was often refered to as the ADOPTED son.



Over the years Jason would become a spirit filled sold out warrior
for Christ. battling and fasting, commiting himself to spiritual
warfare and one by one reclaiming his family for the Son of GOD.



The angels and demons would spend years fighting each other over
the souls of Jasons family, but in the end, Jason would never Give up.


Many years later Jason having become a youth pastor and a husband
introduced his family to Kris's. and with a smile he said to her
parents,

















"and this is my daughter.. Kris"








the end

Friends
This was just a story. But I want to Share some thing with you. Believe
with me for a moment there is a GOD. and while there are those who love
him and worship him, there are those who stand against him. in the
spirit they are Demons, fallin angels. their leader is SATAN.





The Son of GOD Jesus Christ, wages wars like this all the time. Thats how important you are to him.

The angels speak to you, as do the demons. Leading us up roads and
down hills. But there is always a spiritual battle for your soul.




Jesus didnt die b.c he wanted to show off. Jesus didnt die b.c
there was no other way, Jesus didnt die b.c that was the way things
happend.






Jesus Christ the Lamb of GOD died b.c he loved you!





And his angels under his command are always arround you. And Jesus is always beside you.




I would encourage each and every one of you, even if you dont
believe to Pray the following prayer and See if im wrong. a CALLENGE if
you will.



If you dont want to thats fine but i wish each who read this would.






Quote :
Jesus,
I may not be perfect. I may not always know the right way, or the right
words. but I do know you will reveal your self. because you said you
would. So Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD, i ask you now to forgive me of
my sins and become my Lord and savior. Reveal your truth to me, so i
may know the truth and be set free. seek and you will find is what your
word says Jesus.. im seeking. i ask only to find


In the Name of Jesus Amen
