Christian Drama - THE NIGHT DEAL Episode 4 and 5


Episode Four

*ALH BADMUS*: You don’t understand sir. This market I am talking about is the second largest spiritual market in the country. Pastors, clerics, traditionalists, politicians, civil servants and elites in the society, are all dealers in this market. Just last week, the market set up a church for one of our members. All he needs to do is to regularly anoint them with a specially prepared oil. He has been mandated to always use his oil on his congregation in every of his meetings. At least, eight times a month. You see, even our market is helping Jesus' ministry. This market is a powerful one.

*ENGR TIJESUNI*: That’s not true. That man is not a pastor. He is just a cultist dressed in suit, standing on a demonic glass altar and not a pulpit. A true child of God knows that the word of God and prayers are two things that must take the central place when believers meet. By the way, I believe also that most of the people who will be attending his shrine like church are those who don’t know Jesus. You can't use occultic powers to help Jesus. Jesus does not need help. He is the help everyone needs.

*ALH BADMUS*: Sir, you don’t get it. The little thing I have told you about this market is because I know you also have a strange power. I was hoping you can help me.

*ENGR TIJESUNI*: I don’t have any strange power, instead I have access to the power of Jesus who lives in me. I know first hand what it means to use evil powers. In fact, I know of another strange night market in my grandfather’s day over seventy years ago. My grandfather was a Babaloja, a market head, in GBAGEDE OJA community…

*Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. Romans 1:24-25, ESV.*

Episode Five

_About seventy years ago..._

_BABALOJA, LAMIDI and PAKEGAN were downcasted._

*BABALOJA*: You see, I told you people! I don’t want to be the market head. Please tell me, what market am I to head? Nothing to show for it. Nobody comes to trade here. The few who comes do not have any tribute to pay since they don’t sell. Shame has not let me go home for three days while I wait for things to get better.

*LAMIDI*: Babaloja, don’t say that. Tribal marks are done in pain. It is you elders that says, "on the long run, tribal marks always brings beauty".

*PAKEGAN*: Babaloja, I won’t say I don’t understand your plight. In fact, I came here to tell you that I will be seeking green pasture in another community.

*BABALOJA*: Lamidi, can you hear? Even Pakegan rejects mockery. Now he is mocking me. He wants to leave for a greener pasture.

*PAKEGAN*: Haba, you should at least hear me out. It is true that I wanted to leave because there is no sign of progress or growth in this market. But you see, I remember that it is still the elders that says, "he who accepts his friend has been put to shame must also realize that he is the one who has actually been put to shame". So I decided that we will be in this together. I have also found a solution to our problem. It is with Baba Patigi. He offers to help make our market great again.

*LAMIDI*: Wait! I don’t support this Baba Patigi thing. Remember those foreign preachers that passed through our community on their way to Oyo warned us not to get involved in diabolical things. They said we should patiently wait on God.

*PAKEGAN*: Hear yourself! Those missionaries? Are they here? Will anyone of us go and be broadcasting whatever help we get? The white preachers that dropped only one big Bible here. Is that what we will eat? I am out of patience with God. Babaloja, the ball is in your court. Will you come with me to Baba Patigi’s place or not?...

My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent. Proverbs 1:10, ESV.
