TOPIC: ALEXANDER THE GREAT: HIS THREE FINAL WISHES!

Basic Scripture: Job 7: 3-21

What some have come to believe as a mere story or a real occurrence in the life of the great WAR General, Alexander the Great, are his three last wishes in his death bed! He was a military commander who was never defeated and and was the most successful in history. On his way home from conquering many countries, he came down with an illness.

At that moment, his captured territories, powerful army, sharp swords, and wealth all had no meaning to him. He realized that death would soon arrive and he would be unable to return to his homeland. He told his officers, “I will soon depart this earth, but I have three final wishes you need to carry out.” ODM For Champions 23 September 2019 – ALEXANDER THE GREAT: HIS THREE FINAL WISHES!

“My first wish is to have my physician bring my coffin home alone. My second wish is that you should scatter the gold, silver, and gem from my treasure house along the path to the tomb of my final resting place.” After wrapping himself in a woolen blanket and resting for a while, he said: “My final wish is to put my hands outside the coffin.”

Alexander’s most favoured General then asked: “My General, can you tell us why you are giving this instructions?” After taking a deep breath, the wise General Alexander said: “I want everyone to understand the three lessons that I have learned: 1. To let my physician carry my coffin alone is to let people realize when they face death, that the physicians are powerless to save them.

I hope people will learn to treasure their lives. 2. My second wish is to tell people not to be like me in pursuing wealth. I spent my whole life pursuing wealth and fame, but I am not able to take them to the great beyond now.

  1. My third wish is to let people understand that I came to this world with empty hands and I will leave this world also with empty hands.” He closed his eyes after talking and gave up the ghost! What a SCHOOL for everyone! No wonder today’s Word is so exact: Job 7:3 says: “So am I made to possess months of vanity, and wearisome nights are appointed to me.”

He described his life here as months and years of vanity! Vs. 7 says: “Remember that my life is wind…” YOUR LIFE IS WIND! Wow! Never forget that it is vanity to desire a long life and take no heed to a good life! It was Chauser (1343-1400) who pined: “The cat would eat fish but would not get her feet wet.” That means, never allow success, beauty, fame, good health, wealth, etc, to drown you! Yes! Live simple! Give to others! Work for God! You are a stranger here. Pray now!
