Alade is with a medical doctor. Her sister is ill and need urgent attention.
DOCTOR: I have told you that she is in critical condition and that a sum of #500000 is needed to help her out.
ALADE: scare. Five hundred thousand naira! I’m a student. I don’t have any one to run to for such an amount of money. Even until now, I have not paid my fees at school. Doctor, please, assist me.
DOCTOR: there is nothing I can do than for you to go now and look for money. Anything can happen to her at any moment from now if you don’t provide the money on time.
ALADE: fearfully. God forbid. Okay, I will go and look for money. He rises to his feet quickly and leaves.
Alade on his way is thinking on what to do and where to get the money from. A young man approach Alade.
THE YOUNG MAN: Gives him a flier. Good day sir! I want to inform you about a seminar on entrepreneurship which will come up on 24 of this month. Everything you need to know about the program is in the flier. The venue and….
ALADE: cut in. He looks fed up. I’m not interested. I’m looking for money to treat my sister at hospital presently.
THE YOUNG MAN: okay. Can you give me your phone number so that when another seminar comes up again I can contact you?
ALADE: aggressively. Oh God. Young man, don’t you hear what I said! I said I have something urgent to attend to now! He walks out of his sight.
A nurse enters through one of the entrance as she’s rushing into a ward to attend to a patient. The doctor is also seen as he follows her in hurry. After a while the doctor is seen as he comes out again. Alade is also coming.
ALADE: Doctor, I tried all I could but I couldn’t get the money.
DOCTOR: looks sober. It is too late.
ALADE: anxious. What is it? DOCTOR: she is dead.
ALADE: painfully. Dead!!!
Alade is with an herbalist.
AlADE: crying. I come for help.
HERBALIST: Don’t cry. As you have come here, your problem is solving.
ALADE: my parents are dead. Nine of my siblings are gone.
HERBALIST: All this you say is like a parable to me. What exactly do you want?
ALADE: I want the enemy behind the evils that fell upon my family dead because what happened to them must not happen to me also. HERBALIST: Makes consultation with god. After the consultation. Young man, the person behind your problem is someone known to you. Do you say you want your enemy dead?
ALADE: I don’t care who the person is. I want the enemy behind this dead.
HERBALIST: (Assuredly) okay. The enemy behind your problem will die.
Alade sits on a chair. A text book is opened on a table. He is studying. Titilayo enters. She is with mobile hand set. TITILAYO: Have you heard?
ALADE: curious. Heard what?
TITILAYO: The woman selling onion is dead.
ALADE: surprise. Dead!!! Oh my God. What happened to her?
TITILAYO: She was very strong, active and healthy not until this morning when she couldn’t wake up. Her phone rings. She picks the call and rush out quickly. Hello… Hello……
ALADE :( thoughtfully) This woman is nice. She will bring food for me to eat. Sometimes, she will give me money. She was even the one who gave me money which I used for my tuition fee. Can this be? Can she be the source of the problem? Can she be the one the herbalist was referring to as someone close to me? It can’t be. I don’t think so.
Alade sits alone in a dream.
ALADE:(thoughtfully) Life is difficult. Why I’m I still finding things difficult as this? The same things happened to my parents and siblings before they all died. If truly this woman is the source of my problem things shouldn’t be difficult again because she is out of the way.
MAN: walks to him. You can’t be victorious over your problem in that way. Even If that is the case, then it is one thing for the enemy to die, and it is another thing for the evil deposited to be clear off. The enemy deposited untimely death and struggles into your family but instead of you to come unto God for HIM to set you free and call on Him for deliverance, you took it up yourself. You went to a wrong place and you got a wrong solution to your problem. Can you now see that the death of your enemy bring no solution to your problem? Haman died but for the unreversed evil done by the Haman to be reversed, esther called on the king for the evil done by the Haman to be reversed. Come to Jesus. Repent your evil deed and He shall set you free.
STEPS TOWARDS BEEN SAVED

Which means we all came into being through him.
Verses 10 and 11 says "He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not."

If you don't believe in the lord Jesus christ and accept his gospel no matter how you try to live right, your sins will not be forgiven.
