This painting is full of symbolisms. I really wanted to pull in the transforming power of the Holy Spirit in one of my paintings. Many times, the color blue is used to show His Presence in dreams and such. So, the blues in this painting represent His presence. Also, the white symbolizes the cleansing power of the Blood of Jesus and when combined with the Holy Spirit, a person enters a stage of protection and change much like a spiritual cocoon. During this time, God reveals who He is to the person and begins to place keys of revelation into their hands....promises that He has for their life. This is what is represented with the yellow in the girls hands. Then, when that season of change comes to fruition, that person emerges transformed, empowered and "flying" with the glory of God paving the way ahead.

Living Water

"Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water." 
"Sir," the woman said, "you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his livestock?"
Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life." 
- Matthew 3:10-14

Renewed Hope

I painted this for a friend of mine that experienced a life changing tragedy this year.  God is good and always faithful.  He can and does renew hope and restore broken dreams.

Out of the Fire : Into Power

"Out of the Fire : Into Power"

The Bible makes it clear that God prepares His People to serve His Kingdom through the fires of trials and tribulations.  Jesus instructed His followers to pick up their cross and follow Him.  But, one of the things that comes out of that process is a mature people, ready for service to the King.  A people who understand Holiness and are consecrated to God.  The Bible refers to the Church as "The Bride of Christ" and one day we will be reunited with our beloved at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. (Ref. Revelation 19:7)  As we allow God to purify us in the fire and refine us like gold, then we emerge from that time of testing with great strength and power. 

The Anointed

"The Anointed"

This is an abstract sympolism of many traits of God's anointed Saints; The Oil of Anointing that flows out of Heaven, the water and fire of life springing forth, the Wind of the Holy Spirit, Silver representing prosperity, the growth of New Life and the crown of authority resting on His people....

A Cry for Help

"And the King will answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me." - Matthew 25:40

People all of the world are crying out in their suffering for help....from our next door neighbor to the farthest reaches of the planet....what are you doing to help them?  God isn't looking for excuses....He's watching for people who will give freely of all that they have been given and bring hope to a hopeless generation.  Are you serving your brethren?  Or are you serving yourself alone?

Full Scripture Reference: Mathew 25:31-46

Life Bursts Forth

"Life Bursts Forth"

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only Begotton Son so that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." - John 3:16-17

"In Him was life, and the life was the light of men."  - John 1:4

"He who has the Son (Jesus) has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.  These things I have written to you who believe in the naame of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God." - 1 John 5:12-13

"Jesus said to hinm, 'I am the way, the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me."  -John 14:6
