What do you do with that?

You meet a man who woke from a nap one day and suddenly had double-vision.  His muscles couldn’t even open his eyelids.  He was basically blind.  He tells you Jesus told him he was going to be blind… asked him if he would do it for Him.  He tells you he still doesn’t conceive why he said yes to Jesus.  He tells you Jesus soon after told him to get a canvas and paint, but he never painted in his life.  And, he’s blind.  You are in his house, looking at his paintings, which are simply startling.  He has complete double vision.  Oh, the paintings are made with dollar paints… and he tells you artists say you can’t do that with dollar paints.  He’s blind… and he tells you Jesus lets him paint.

He tells you story after story of God’s healing power in the lives of people he’s prayed with and met.  Some of them are there with you.  These are amazing people of faith.  He tells you you’ll wake up one morning and be completely healed… and you won’t believe it.  You won’t believe it, but you have no choice but to believe… and you are going to have to tell people what happened.  Oh, and Jesus speaks to him… and tells him these things.  He tells you story after story.

There is a signed picture of McCain and Palin in his living room.  You know many of the people there are or were Democrats, so you tell him you are interested in the picture and ask him about it.  He simply tells you McCain is going to win.  You mention that’s a pretty strong statement given latest polls.  He simply tells you Jesus told him he would live to see the end of abortion.  He is an old man.  He figures that means McCain is going to win, but he also says Jesus told him we need to end abortion, or Jesus will.

I promised I won’t have posts as long as my original one, so I have to leave it at that for now. ;)
