Questions that go unanswered become answers that go unquestioned. If there are no Biblical answers, to support spiritual activities, can we truly say that we are following God? “NO DEAL!” is a story about a time when the Word of The Lord was precious, because there was no evidence of an open vision. “NO DEAL!” is set in a time when churches were active, but The Lord was silent. There were those that preached; there were those that prophesied; there were those who praised; and there were those who worshipped; but the Lord, was silent. While church members spoke in unknown tongues rarely was there an interpretation so these tongue left the discerning wondering, were they a sign? There was a rise, in self proclaimed Prophets and Apostles, who prophesied of prosperity, as the global economy experienced lows that first, rivaled and then exceeded the financial collapse of the great depression. Man continued to promote himself spiritually in the most esteemed offices, but there were no signs and wonders that followed this new breed of spiritual experts and no one seemed to notice or care that church buildings were growing, while the church memberships were dropping. My spiritual life became an obstacle for me, and as I was falling, I questioned everything. Why does my faith not move mountains? Why are there no signs and wonders, following the over abundance of spiritual experts? Respectfully, I began to question the spiritual experts that I had access to, I was anxious for answers. Generally, they were annoyed with such questioning, and through spiritual belittling, they tried to discourage my inquisitive mind. It seemed as though as long as I was questioning, there would be no acceptable levels of humility or meekness that I could express without offending the spiritually elite, it was as if they did not notice, that the Lord was silent. Mark 16:17-18 (KJV) “and these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover.” I became determined to find that place in God, where Mark 16:17-18, could become the standard, for my belief. God became my obsession, as I allowed the Bible to define Bible terms. I embraced the covenant, and I accepted the challenges, with unfeigned conscientious faithfulness. “NO DEAL!” encapsulated me as exhilarating accounts of my actual experiences accurately revealed to me, appeared on paper. What the Bible describes as “weakness”, a state of being achieved by grace, through emotional processing, contrite prayer, real life pain and suffering, devastating losses and total surrender, I discovered to be a gateway to divine consciousness. As the Lord intervened through revelation, the vision of the Lord was opened! In my darkest hours, The Lord declared to me, “No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment, you shall condemn, because this is your heritage! This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, says the Lord.” As life was leaving my uninspired eyes, the Lord resuscitated my divine consciousness by breathing His words, as spoken in Isaiah 54:17, into my fading spirit. I entreat you in the fear of The Lord, to allow God to break you down, into potshards that are beyond your repair. So that as the “Potter”, God can rebuilds you in such a way, that in your coming and in your going, His light of righteousness may boldly announce to the universe, that you are a child of God! Moreover, that the spirit of holiness, living inside of you may declare with authority, on every frequency, to every principality, to ever power, to every ruler in darkness, and to all spiritual wickedness, that you are anointed, and there will be, “NO DEALS!” If any of my words, evoke dormant voids inside of you, causing those voids to recognize, the spiritual significance of the manna before you, then count every morsel joy, in the power of the Holy Ghost, and I beseech you to pray for a blessing from this meal now, before it consumes you! Revelation 3:20-22 (KJV) “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to sup with him, and he with me. (21) To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I overcame, and am set down with my Father in His throne. (22) He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches.” Mark 9:23 (KJV) Jesus said unto him, “If thou can believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” I invite you to experience my testimony, I encourage you to open the door, and I dare you to believe God!
