Holy Bible found it's home

Peace be with you.
I am a person who like to collect holy scriptures or God's inspired books and I keep them in a special place in my home. I also put them in my backpack as my companion where ever I go. Even in my office, I am with the Word because I believe the Author of those books is the Spirit of God. Man is only writting down the inspired words as they come in their minds. I believe the Holy Bible is the Word of God and I believe in the Holy Spirit who dwells in the baptised Christian.

In the evening of Wednesday, June 10th, 2009 the weather is sunny and abit hazy in Petaling Jaya, Selangor. At 5.15pm while in the office, my friend Chew Chee Long said, "It's too hot outside! How to jog?" I answer, " It's ok and it's better than raining."
I take off my office attire in our office store and put on my Red Liverpool Jersey with a Red Liverpool Cap and a jogging trousers. I am very eager to go for this season because last week I had missed the season due to illness. I come out of the store room and Chew Chee Long turn to change into his jogging tracksuit. We hit the road at 5:30pm and off through Jalan Universiti, Rothman Roundabout, pass Wisma Kemajuan and head for a small road to Paramount Garden. From Paramount Garden, we take another small road and go through rows of beautiful banglows until we reach Maz International School. This area is called Taman Aman, a recreational area for Petaling Jaya community.
As we jog, I am always complaining of tiredness and yet I force myself to finish two rounds. The air is not good for out door exercise and this is shown by Chew Chee Long frequently put his hand towel over his nose and mouth. Beside the two rounds and I also manage to do two sets of 4 chin up exercise on the high bar.
Then we head for home. As we reach the rows of the newly renovated banglows which we passed earlier, I saw a blue paper in a distant on the road side in the midst of the cut grass. It attract me and as we came nearer, I have a closer look and I saw a Chinese character with a cross on the paper. More its not a paper but a book which is a bit dirty and in the middle of the book, I saw the WORD .....


I pick it up and said with a bit of anger in my voice, "How come these people throw the Bible like this? Very bad, you know!" A maid is staring at us from a distant as she throw a bag of waste into the rubbish bin. Chew Chee Long, said, "Ya lah.." I clean the cover with my hand and now it's clear...blue colour, pocket size 6" x 4" with this word in the front cover....

"THE HOLY BIBLE (NEW TESTAMENT) Chinese and English Bilingual Edition"

A closer look: its a New King James Version, THE GIDEONS INTERNATIONAL.

I still wonder why this happen, Holy Bible on the road side. Is it accidently drop or purposely drop?

My heart is rejoicing, as I have a new Bible and very excited to open my first verse as we walk back. I flip and its new inside and the marker is place at the back of the holy Bible which indicate its never been used. I open and my FIRST verse from this new Holy Bible....

"I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and revealed them to babes. Even so, Father, for so it seems good in Your sight." (Luke 10:21b NKJV) (The Word of Lord Jesus as He rejoices in the Spirit.)

I said, "WOW! GOD!" and I close the Holy Bible immediately but those words I keep in my mind and heart as I walk back with the Bible in my hand. My mouth singing and my heart rejoicing.

When we reach the office, I am very eager to tell my wife and her boss about my finding. I place the Holy Bible on Agnes' table and Chew Chee Long picks it up and open and said, " Go to Seap Reap" and he laughs. The rest of us laugh with him but my heart tickle. Then I went upstairs to my own working table and I open the Holy Bible the SECOND times. This time it read......

"Go out of your country, go out of your relatives and come to the land that I will show you." (These word were for Father Abraham. These word, I have posted on my Facebook: John Ragai http://www.new.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1017609516 . My Friend, Muse Omokhabi ask me to pray on these words.)

This time, I really scared and close the Holy Bible again and wonder, "Is this Bible talking to me?" The hair of my neck are standing as i keep the Holy Bible in my backpack. I keep another verse in my heart.

As my wife, Agnes drives home, we talk on this Holy Bible and the two verses. When we reach home, Agnes do not let me bring the Holy Bible into our house because she said that maybe the bad spirit is with the Holy Bible. Obediently, I place nicely the Holy Bible in the back seat of Agnes' car.

Though my heart is trouble during the night while watching TV until almost midnight. Before I switch off the TV, I said to myself I have to open the Holy Bible the THIRD times. With joy in my heart, I open the house door and go for the Holy Bible in the back seat of the car. I flip open the pages and go to the porch light to see what the Holy Bible said. My eyes catch thse word....

"Now the just shall live by faith; but if anyone draws back, my soul has no pleasure in him."
(Hebrews 10:38 NKJV) This is God's promise for those who live by faith in GOD.

This time, I am confident that GOD is talking to me and the Holy Bible is looking for a HOME.

On the June 11th, The Holy Bible is place in my home after I sprinkle the Holy Bible with the Holy Water. I am yet to open the Holy Bible again. Once I open, I will add the verse in this blog.

Peace be with you.

Glory be to God, my beloved One, King of the Universe, Creator of All.
