Merciful God, a Frederick Osei Frimpong inspired drama Script
The intent of this script is to show the sinner or backslidden of the readiness of God to stretch out His saving hand to save even in their most distress moments. It highlights on the quick judgement of man and how they assume man is equally punished of his deeds on earth.
Seth sitting in his wheelchair with his hope all lost and thinking of the bad stuffs he did. He feels rejected and neglected by the family. He feels despondent and believes he is the sole reason for his forlorn state.
Seth: I am in this mess because I created it. Begins to sing ( Mendanfo nom a na mani da w)n nso no, meankasa m’abusuafo) na m’ani da w)n so no, w’afiri me haw no mo, afei mpo de3 )ka ne s3, me b)ne so akatua na manya yi )…Tragic song of how everyone has left him including his family.
Mavis pours a heavy dose of water on Seth whilst he sings the song. Very emotional moment for Seth.
Mavis: Wicked man!! Foolish Man!! Stupid Fool!! You have no place in this house. I will not sit here and watch you diffuse your bad omen in this house. That cancerous spirit you brought from God knows where will not have its way here. Nothing is working well since you stepped foot here from the city. Poisonous man!! God punish you. Mmmmmttttcccchhheeeewwww
Seth denied of food for the past 2 days by the family and has been left to sit in the scorch sun. Someone knocks the main gate and behold two brothers approaching with their bibles.
Missionaries: k)k))k) Agoooooo
Seth with a faint voice responds: Come in, please
Missionaries: Good afternoon, Sir
Seth: Good afternoon, brothers
Mavis intrudes from nowhere and begins to speak.
Mavis: Eiiiiii brothers. It is obvious you are God fearing and most sanctified . Do not empathise and have mercy on this one ooooo, he is a package of curses. His cup is full and he is sleeping in the very bed made. Wicked man. God punish you beyond remedy. Mmmtttccchhheeewwww
She walks off and goes inside
Missionaries: Hello brother, we never came to judge you. Our Lord Jesus Christ is the perfect Judge and also the Chief Shepherd of your soul. It is He who justifies and no man condemns . We are ambassadors of reconciliation and not condemnation.
Seth: Sorry, I could not serve you water. I am Seth Nsiah and you are?
Missionaries: Oh, sorry sir. Forgive us. I am Collins and this is brother Newton.
Seth begins to admit to guilt and how it is eating him up and agrees he deserves the repercussions of his actions .
Seth: Brothers, for two days , my tongue has not even touched the saltiest soup or most sugary tea. My mouth has been denied of the pleasure of food and my stomach as empty as a smile. My body cells are malfunctioning because I can feel it. I deserve every bit of what I am going through. I deserve it.
Brother Collins: Beloved Seth, don’t rain judgements on yourself. God is merciful and ever ready to forgive you.
Seth: Hahaha my brothers. You have seen the light and you deserve the best of this life. I am a killer. I am a money ritualistic. I am a rapist. I deal in despicable trades which ensures lives are aborted from the face of the earth. I sold my soul to the devil. Oh God, I remember pounding that 2 day baby to preserve my covenant, the child cried to the apex of his voice, yet, I was not moved neither did I tremble because of the sheer wickedness that had taken abode of my heart. Do you know the magnitude of my sins? What of the woman who was eight months pregnant I raped. Oh, she screamed yet I enjoyed it and every drop of blood that proceeded from her genital was my covenant money. Do you know what I did to her husband? He so loved her and persisted in stopping us, but, in cold blood, I slit his throat with a sharp knife till he bled and bled till he gave up his ghost. So, you see, I am far from God and do not deserve his so called mercy you are crusading now. Leave me alone. Get out of my face whilst I await on my death.
Brother Newton: You will not die, you will
Seth: I said lleeeeaaaaaavvvvveeeeee
Brother Collins and Brother Newton find a solitary place and begin to pray.
Lord of harvest, Jesus in the days of His flesh had compassion on the sick and healed them irrespective of the source of the sickness. We intercede for Brother Seth and ask You to save his soul and heal him of all of this depression and oppression.
The missionaries enter into the house seeing Seth in that same position they left him with his clothes wet.
Seth: You again. I thought I made it crystal clear to leave me alone
B.N : Yes, you said that, but that was not God’s voice because God wants everyman well and you are not well. Today, the Lord shall set you free.
Seth: Why do you sound confident? The enormity of my sins prove, that, I am worthy of what I am going through.
B.C: We are confident because we know whom we have believed. Take the Bible and read where i will instruct you to read. Open Psalm 107:19-20. Open it and start to read.
Seth: Then they cry unto the in their trouble and he save them out of their distress. He sent his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction.
B.N : This is why we are confident. Can we ask you a question? Are you ready for the salvation of the Lord.
Seth: Yes Yes Yes YesY
B.C: Then, say this with me, Father in heaven, I believe in my heart that You raised Jesus Christ from the dead and I confess with my mouth that, Jesus is Lord.
B.N: Now that you are a new creation, no man knows you after your flesh and past anymore. You are the healed of God and we will pray and confirm now.
B.C and B.N begin to sing, “ You are the Lord that health the, You are the Lord, our Healer, You sent forth your word and heal our disease, You are the Lord Our Healer
B.C lays his hands on the legs of Seth and begins to pray, “ Father, I thank you for this moment. In the name of our dear Lord Jesus, we command the devil to lose his grip of this seed of Abraham. Loose him now . Loose him now. I command these legs to function now.
They hold both hands of his and begin to lift him. The supernatural power of God hits Seth and he begins to move his legs to walk and even starts running.
All who knew Seth marvel at the scene Mavis inclusive. Seth kneels in awe of God and His mercies and sings;
Among the gods, who is like thee, You are glorious in holiness, fearful in Praises, Doing wonders Hallelujah
He thanks God and praises him dancing and blessing God.
Someone asked, “ Is this Seth ? “. Another answered , “ No, this is not Seth “.
Seth turned and looked at them and replied, “ I am the one “. God has been merciful on me and delivered me from the power of darkness. From this moment, my life belongs to God and He alone.
They all praise God and moved on.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY
