The newly christen battle cruiser, of Zone Eight Stellar forces have been in pursuit, of the ship called Guider since it departed Segregation Four, with ten political prisoners seeking to reach , the Isles of Patmos. A religious sanctuary with legislative immunity.
When it seems the Ravisher being test driven, by Sgt. Biddix Bell get within reaches, of the transportation cruiser they drop back, on the velocity to over take the ship. Many aboard the cruiser has their suspicions about their commander decision making. All except Corporal Keesee Denise, James, one loyal soldier to her commander if there ever was one living.
Entering the sky assigned zone, of Patmos the Ravisher continue on into the region. While knowing they have no legal authority to comprehend any wanted criminal. A message that Sgt. Biddix Bell relay to the members, of the new cruiser ship. Which contains members, of Lt. Hutch Wayne, Hutchinson Immortal One space cruiser.
A island that only require visitors to stay in tune with their religious understand, of the Scriptures. The adviser, of Patmos Spiritual Council comes forward in the person, of John Baptiste, a former convicted prisoner placed in charge, of the operation, of the planetary region.
He challenge all visitors, of the Ravisher to find a scripture and explain exactly what that phase means to them, as a person? He doesn’t order them but request, of them to participate in his religious studying. He does confirm that he will call upon them when the moment requires it.
“Sgt. Biddix Bell, I start with you first. What scripture stands out in your mind and heart?” Ask Minister Baptiste.
“Well sir. I might confuse many because, of this uniform I wear as a Zone Eight commander. But there within Psalm, of the scripture is this phase…
“Too long have I lived among people who hate peace. I am a man of peace; but when I speak, I find some waiting for war.” Explaining further that unless we find a solution to solving conflict the world will forever be destroyed.
“But, Sgt. Bell. You’re focus on the real, the positive. And, who knows your reality just might come to be.”
The minister looks out over the room, of many Zone Eight Stellar forces before he calls out Cpl. K.D.James. Known to her platoon, as Cpl. Keesee James.
“I guess I go with this one Proverb that I have in my zone office.”
She stands not nervous but firm in herself before the gathering, of soldiers with the Isles of Patmos.
“The Lord is far from the wicked but he always hears the prayer of the righteous.” Offering her personal opinion about her selected phase in that whatever you do wrongly. Your justice will be confronted, by the judges that guides you.
Romeo A. Sanchez, a quiet member, of the Zone Eight Stellar forces, at first refused to offer a selected phase. And none, of his comrades demands that he offer one but something mysteriously tears, at his heart to speak. And, he stands slowly but surely and states:
“Amigos, My father Alphonso always spoke this phase. Which I totally believes in. Judge not no one or you be judged back.. For in the same way you made that judgment. You will be judged and measure closely.” Advising many within the Patmos Council Sanctuary that don’t get offended when others have negative vibes about you that you seek physical confrontation.
Over, in the corner trying to quickly gather a phase is technical technician Happy Parker. A honest enough guy to admit he isn’t as close to the lord , as he should be. But feels challenge, by those he has seen speak
“I feel a religious awakening here on Patmos. I truly do feel something working deep within my spirit.” Standing before his fellow comrades. The sixitish distinguish former lieutenant, of Zone Eight chancellor detail unit offer his phase.
“Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.” He doesn’t espouse on his selected phase just to say it speaks for itself. The tough as ail training instructor can be mellow when many didn’t think he knew the word. Minister counselor John Baptiste makes one final call out to the soldiers, of Zone Eight Stellar forces.
Immediately stands Valerie Simmons, the co-pilot, of the Ravisher along with test pilot Sgt. Bell.
“We shall trust in the Lord will all our heart and lean not to things , of our own understanding. But we should acknowledge him and he will direct our path.” Many intensely listen to the well spoken young flight officer. Who slowly let a tear float down her cheek.
She testify when her toughest times appears. She relax and let God be her ear. Which all the Zone Eight Stellar Forces soldiers nod their heads in agreement.
“See here on Patmos, as much as some officials wishes we didn’t have diplomatic immunity. It’s needed because many, of you doesn’t know the freedom to be able to speak without reprimand.” Leaving the room for a few minutes the minister and administrator, of the Isle Of Patmos returns. Behind him stands the ten convicted prisoners protected, by the immunity the island possesses. And, they have select one speech maker to give a sermon, at the gathering.
He stands nervously while not assured if they under the protection, of the oath treaty signed with many planetary nation. Still, he speaks to the Zone Eight military soldiers his selected phase.
“A wise man’s heart guides his mouth,and his lips promote instruction.” Thanking all the soldiers for a word, of encouragement when fear was all they saw when they was heading into the immunity, of Patmos. While knowing the crime they committed wasn’t legit. They promise their word that they will make up to the victims, of their crimes the best way they can.
“Splendid, just splendid. After all people aren’t we the same in the eyes, of the Lord.” Minister John Baptiste counsel with members, on an individual basis before the Zone Eight Stellar Forces departs. Bidding the island administrator so long the Ravisher flies out, of the immunity zone, of Patmos heading back to Zone Eight. When communication officer Val Simmons, is alerted to a space emergency on another planet.
“Sgt Bell, what’s your call?”
“Head home, Miss Simmons. We pursue that journey another day. Besides, we’re not the only one patrolling the galaxies today.”
Who said the Holy Spirit words isn’t powerful?
