CERTAIN PEOPLE WANT ME TO DIE

CERTAIN PEOPLE WANT ME TO DIE

I know that I will die someday. Or maybe...maybe not. There is always the chance that God takes me to prevent me from seeing death. (For the sadness of those who will stay – in a very Pentecostal language). This week I have been killed twice, either from AIDS or a heart attack. Besides, I was admitted to an Intensive Care Unit hanging between life and death. I can see two movements here: On the one hand, people who suffer, get afflicted with the rumors and pray. On the other hand, people who spread the news like winners who say: “We have exterminated that guy”. And there are still the perverse people who say: “He has got what he deserves!” – as if they wouldn’t die one day either, as if Elias and Enoch were the only ones to deserve not to die; or as if death were not a legacy of ours in Christ, as Paul said in II Corinthians. May everybody know that when I pass away, my wife and family will announce my decease. By the way, on the night of March 27th, 2004, when Lukas, my kiddo, departed life to be with the Lord, minutes after hearing about his death by phone, at 4 o’clock in the morning, I myself, weeping very much, posted a note on the site announcing his death and asking for prayers. Here goes a message from Adriana: “To whom it may concern: My husband’s life is precious at God’s eyes who deliberately saved his life from a respiratory failure last year. I will always be grateful because God knows how much I love him and how much we need the Gospel to be preached in truthfulness. We don’t ignore any purpose, but we live confidently that neither in heavens nor on Earth, there is power strong enough to touch Caio’s life. And if by any chance, I am the one who remains alive to announce his death, my heart and my flesh will faint, but I will do it with the certainty that Caio lived to God and that he is in God’s habitation, according to his love for Jesus and for the Gospel he preached. That would give me strength to cry out loud: “Move on searching the understanding of the Gospel according to Jesus, like my husband did”. We’re doing well by the grace of God. His health goes from the Grace to the Gracies (Jiu-Jitsu fighters). To those who eager for the contrary I say: throw down the gauntlet and “meet me at the corner” because I will be there covered by Jesus’ blood. By the way, the attempt to kill the miracle is an old acquaintance of ours. Even Lazarus they wanted to kill to erase the evidence of life and resurrection from the dead. Adriana D’Araújo ________________________________ Continued... I am at my parents’ house in Manaus, Amazon, with Adriana. We’re about to eat tracajá (Amazon River turtle), if He permits it. Tomorrow, I want to swim in a waterfall and later on I will give an interview to “A Crítica” Newsweek. On Friday, I will preach at the Manaus- Way-of-the-Grace- Station which has just taken its first steps. I repeat: all that, if the Lord allows me to. After all, who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? This kind of rumor is always perverse. Those who publish news reporting my death without double-checking, is at the hell’s service, because it causes affliction to good people. David, my son, called me some minutes ago in deep sorrowfulness. His mother, Alda was with him and both of them wanted to know what had happened. Adriana calmed him and afterwards I did the same. Therefore, I’d like to appeal to you: Let my death take place when God Himself wishes. It is worthless to anticipate my death. After all, He has His plans which I will not frustrate seeing that he has given me an unstructuring mission to fulfill in my generation. That’s the big issue. The rumors of my death spread on the media show that there is a strange desire in the air, and certain people are actually bothered. And watch out: In 2006, they will see that God will act a lot, and for that reason great hatred, envy, angry and death desire shall arise. Since they can’t in fact kill me they spread rumors about my likely death. I know that this will get worse. Yes, when god acts more nonsense appears. I am aware that there will be more attempts to kill me, especially with words. In Him, who will crush the serpent’s head and will strike his heel."
