The Slave and His Master, part 4

Updated on January 31, 2013
The Law of Moses
The Law of Moses

The Fear of God

Johan was safely inside of the villa. A few of the woman in the household had been shown medicine by Aurel who intuitively understood medicine by the Hand of Almighty God on her. Aurela revered the most High God. She knew Him to be the one true God. The men were asked to be on their way and would indeed be fetched if needed. The men left her domain in obedience; quietly and quickly.

Macarius wanted to be alone and told his men, 'now go to eat and rest and have others tend to the horses.' The cool breeze of the evening air was a welcome feeling on his sore muscles.He could not help but notice the hundreds and hundreds of thousands of stars in the sky tonight. He never recalled seeing the sky this lit up by Gods stars. Each fiber inside of him felt the peace of God.

Macarius loved this boy as a son. His attachment had grown to one such as this. He knew the compassion in his heart was from God. God is love and created each one of us special in His eyes. Marcarius knelt down on bended knee and thanked and worshiped God Almighty. He knew without a shred of doubt God was the only reason that the rocky and narrow path was made straight and clear. If they had taken the normal route it would have added hours onto the trip. Timeus took the risk as he was led so by the Spirit of God upon him and Macarius was proud of the young man and Vitus as well. His skills on the narrow incline with the horses were mastered like none other that he had seen. He took so much for granted and prayed forgiveness.

Timeus looked back before he approached his quarters and could not help but return to the Master. 'Sir are you well?' Can I help you master?' Macarius replied, ' No Timeus, I am on knee to thank God for the safety of our journey. You did a diligent and most hard work to clear the peak for the horses. I thank-you for your service.' Timeus felt himself blush. 'Oh Master I am most honored to serve you.' Master was humbled. He spoke softly to Timeus, ' I have made many mistakes in my life. Today I realized that our life is but a very short time and one day we will stand before God and be accountable for our deeds, while we lived. My God has placed much on my heart. Timeus you are no longer my slave or servant, you are my son. You and all that are in the family will be called my sons and daughters. Without your service and honor to me nothing could be accomplished. I see Almighty God placed you on my path for a season. We will have no other Gods before us Timeus. If one worships another God, he will leave this home here and be made free to go and worship his idol god.'

Tears were streaming down the masters face.Timeus could not could not help but to kneel to God in gratitude. 'My master,' without you, I would not have my life. I would be in chains and have brutal treatment.' The master spoke softly, ' Timeus the Lord God had me to choose you. He is the one that has saved your life. Praise to God Timeus and not to me. It is not not wealth, not power, nor by my might I stand. Nothing will stand without the hand of Almighty God on it. He is our Master, our King, the Creator. He is our firm foundation.' 2 timothy 2:19

Marcarius stayed on his knees in prayer until they weakened. He did not recall literally falling into a fetal portion and into slumber, on the front plaza. Timeus took a new hide and covered his master then sat near to him leaning against the stoned wall. He laid his head in his strong cupped hands, on his knees and wept in prayer. He ask God to save this boy, Johan. He explained to God his master would be heart broken if Johan died. Vitus could not bare to see his master in such pain as this.

In Christ, Skye

Do enjoy the tune I left for you!

Conclusion soon, stay tuned.

      Dear est Romeos. Oh my that was a fun write and I did research. I must say the the inspiration came from the Lord. I was willing and He let His light so shine. There is nothing new under the sun. Jesus is the way truth and life. We can try our own measure and how futile it is. But God is grace and mercy and all along He loves us so. We have a purpose with Christ and He will see that it is completed. He is the author and finisher of our faith. May God so enrich your life dearest Romeos. You are such a precious Spirit R.Q. You have many gifts. You inspire others and you write like an angel. You are blessed indeed. One day we will see our brothers and sisters in heaven. No wonder it is eternity we will have so much to share. God is truly amazing. Thank you for your encouragement. Truly coming from a gifted writers you it means allot to me. I am touched you enjoyed slave and master. Your friend and sister in Christ. I will be over soon for a few reads. HUGS galore all the way to Lincolnshire, England

      Love to you Romeos Quill. Skye

      Dearest Skye,

      Well, what a great read!I re-read Part Three, then came here, and realize how much diligence of Scriptural research you must have done in order to incorporate, and blend it in with your fiction, to not only carry a zestful message of hope and life across, but additionally, bring to life your own creations as well.

      I certainly hope you are in good health and wealth precious sis, and thank you for your writing blessings. If you need anything, and I have it to give, it's yours.

      With Love and Warm Regards,

      soumyjourn thank you for your warm comment. You are a kind man.

      I know who my GOD is the creator of this universe. His son Jesus Christ is the way to eternal life. It is by the Blood of Jesus shed on the Cross at calvary that I am forgiven my wretched sins. I strive to be more Holy without God I am lost indeed. Jesus is the way, truth and life. John 14:6 Many Blessings to you!

      Hi! Skye

      I just finished in one go all the remaining 3 parts. Enjoyed very much. You write from heart and with all the devotion in your heart and your being. That comes out in the story. Enjoyed very much. Wish you all the good luck and blessings from Jesus Christ.

      By the way I am a Hindu, we worship idols and there is nothing wrong with that. One worships the god who is everywhere in each dot. It is not the idol or some stone one worships, it is the inner feeling one does, as u have.

      I do not mind at all the way u wrote that was the ancient tradition in those days against idol worshipers in that area so you had to write according to history and I am sure you do not mean any harm to any one or any bad feeling to any one. How can you, with so much love for lord. Jesus Christ saves every one.

      I live in Mumbai. Near my home on the road on footpath there is very small idol of Jesus, may be just about a foot. Almost any time of day one can see people 5-6 at least, worshiping there and those passing by some in car or motorcycle, some walking also bow with respect or fold their hands seeing the holy place. Most of these people who bow with respect are not even Christians. That is the style in India, showing respect to all religions.

      Perhaps you may know that India is one of very few countries where Christianity has continued from 1st century AD when St. Thomas came here (we did not have any dark ages here). Ours is a culture where one learns from childhood that all paths lead to the same truth.

      A truth you convey very well in your story with your devotion Skye. So pleasing and peaceful.

      Some time you have to come here and see how Christianity has continued here since that ancient times and how it is respected by all religions here and so do they respect all.

      Looking forward to much more from you with full of your devotion Skye.

      Blessings Skye! It is quite clear that your heart is so tender to the will of our Father - that all men would hear His Words, believe in our Saviour, repent, follow Him and love Him, do His will, be changed through His Spirit, have close relationship with Him, know Him...this list could go on and on...I hope that your words will go forth, and through the Spirit of God, will draw men unto Himself in spirit and in truth.

      Be blessed dear Sister - love ya!

      knight heart U R truly a Blessing brother. If we are one day saved or 6 decades saved we have all spent time that we regret in sin. Some never regret that brother and may GOD reach them as He so reached us from the pits of darkness. We are all sinners and Children of God desire to be made more Holy. God does not hold our sin or dwell on it it is tossed and blotted out if we have repented. We move forward and keep on. WE ARE FORGIVEN Sometimes it does take allot of bending and pruning and shaping by Almighty GOD. GODS Word is for our benefit. We cant imagine His love but for God to send His son is huge massive and the most Glorious gift we have been given. You keep on brother Phip 4:13. Stay in the Word because no matter the issue problem condition circumstance GOD will take it from us when we only ask. James 1. GOD will meet us where we are at. No matter the baby 1 day saved or 6 decades you have something to give to the lost. You are Heaven Bound. You made the most important decision in all of life. Your OK bro and darn sweet and precious. Thank you for coming over for a read. I really am touched. Consider writing because you are a very good writer and I think you have been given a gift. Hugs your sista in Christ Jesus loves ya.

      Hello Sis,

      I read all 4 of the hubs and I thank you for taking the time to share it with all of us. How God can even care anything about us is totally incomprehensible. All through the ages, man has sought his own ways, rebelling and grieving God over and over. I have no idea how He can still love us so much and desire to have a relationship with us. Even we who are Christians fail Him all the time, over and over.

      I know I have a very long way to go to become even remotely pleasing to God. Sin has been in my life and I have even known it was sin and still didn't even lift a finger to stop it.

      I am very saddened by my lack of courage to even try to live in God's will. Until recently, I really didn't even think of God much in my day to day life. I was focused on the world and its attractions. Of course, as you well know from recent conversations, God shook my world to the very core this past week. Totally unprepared for it, I am still overwhelmed with what has happened.

      I appreciate you being my teacher and I am still in Kindergarten at this point in my life. I have a lot of knowledge, but in application of that knowledge, well, I am almost illiterate. Bless you and I thank God that our paths crossed. I know when you meet God He will say, "Well done, good and faithful servant" as you enter eternity in Heaven. I just pray I won't stand before Him and flood the area with tears of regret and shame for not serving Him as I should. I don't know when God will say my time is over on this earth, but I do know, I wasted a lot of my life with selfish interests and allowed sin into my life without even caring at times.

      I pray that the Holy Spirit is in me and will allow me to overcome Satan's lies and do what God wants me to do with the rest of my life. Am I afraid, yes...I have always been afraid of the unknown, but I am hoping to learn how to trust God completely, without doubt. That will be a major hurdle for me, but know if I succeed, my life will change forever.

      Thanks again, Skye! You are awesome!

      Dave Mathew Bro The story line is fiction but very much like the day of 138 BC. I did lots of research. It was an exciting journey. I learned allot! Yes all that I wrote is for the Glory of God. He is the same God no matter the date. Like today the enemy was hard at work. Man is lost without Aba Father no matter the time. Praise God for HIS Son the King of Kings, Jesus. I would have been doing much blood sacrifice of animals. Anyway I hope you enjoyed the story. Thank you bro for coming over. Really the whole of the story is about Fearing GOD. Many BLessings to you and yours. Love ya bro. Hugs from one God fearing child to another God fearing child of the Most High God, all Mighty Father. Your sista
