Once there was a man, who lived many, many, many years ago. His name was Cleavis. Cleavis had a wife and three kids. One day he was approached by the devil.
And the devil said to him, "Cleavis, if you do as I ask, I will make you wealthy. I will make you rich."
Cleavis said to the devil, "I cannot serve you. For I Love the Lord, my God, with all my heart, my soul, with all that there is in heaven and on earth."
This angered the devil and the devil cursed him, his wife, and children. And anytime Cleavis tried to do something; the devil would send his angels to harass him, to make things go wrong for Cleavis. But Cleavis knew that these things were from the devil and not from God. He did the best he could with what he had. Because he Loved the Lord so much, and he and his family suffered much.
Until the Lord said, "STOP DEVIL! Stop - you and your comrades, for Cleavis and his family belong to Me. For he is a righteous man. He, who had followed Me, and served Me, is a righteous man, I will bless him. I will bless him because he never wavered to right or to the left. Cleavis is a simple man, but yet he Loved Me with all of his heart, all of his soul. I will bless him and his family. So stand back! And let My Friend prosper for the Love of God is upon him, and the vengeance of God will fall upon you before your time if you harass him anymore."
So this man, named Cleavis was blessed for the rest of his days. Him and his family prospered; his children and his children's children, for the Hand of God was upon them. Everything he touched prospered, and he lived many years.
The Power of God can do many things, and Cleavis knew this, but it wasn't the Power (God's Power). It was the humbleness of Cleavis and the innocence of his Love for his God that protected him. For he knew that the Lord could raise and could pull down ANYTHING! This a lesson for all of you children, who don't know God. Remember all the Power, all the Might is in the Hands of the Father Jehovah, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. For no one knows the ways and the manners of God except the children of God. (over)
