Moses -The Intercessor

img_2053

This is Moses with the two tablets of the Ten Commandments descending Mount Sinai. He is painted as shown by the Father.  But Clare has met him in heaven. He is of dark complexion. The ravine on Mount Sinai is now paved with stones up to what is now a stone arch marking the route. It is clearly a tourist route now. This took approximately six sittings in order to get the detail in the figure and the background. But the most revealing correction from my incorrect assumption, was the rod of Moses. It was straight as a rod, not tapered at the bottom or crooked like a branch made into a stick.

So this is how he actually looked in the context of Exodus 31 verse 18. The commandments were written with the finger of God. They were re made by God after Moses threw them in anger and dismay at the base of the mountain – Exodus 32 verse 19, when he saw that Aaron and the Israelites had broken the laws by creating and worshipping a golden calf and other transgressions – Exodus 34 verse 1.

Editors note.., Moses was actually an intercessor … a big time intercessor for the entire nation of Israel.    He often appealed before the Father for the disobedient people of Isreal, asking the Lord for mercy for them..,   even that the Lord would take away from HIM, so that the disobedient Isrealites would be spared.     This is what our Lord is asking us to also do..    to intercede for this disobedient nation and joyfully drinking our cup of suffering for the spiritual good of those who truly need spiritual intervention.    Moses offered his own life for the Isrealites..   and they truly didn’t deserve it.    This is why Moses was considered God’s Friend..  not just a servant of God, but His intimate Friend.   This is what it means to be chosen by our Lord to dwell in His tent with Him.

John The Baptist

img_2028

This is John the Baptist who is the cousin of Jesus. He is depicted in his camel hair as described in Matthew 3 verse 4. But the Lord also got me to paint his under garment green. ….John’s mother is Elizabeth, a relative of Mother Mary from Luke 1 verse 18. …. The scenery is also accurate as it portrays the mountains near the Jordan where John baptised. John the Baptist, I think, will be the best man at the Wedding in Heaven.

Let The Children Come Unto Me

img_2032

This painting is based on Matthew 19 verses 13-15. This was started ahead of a teaching from the Lord about the brides being prepared with the innocence of children before entering heaven. This was a struggle due to demonic interference especially with Christ’s image, so it was a painting salvaged by the Son and the Father.

The boy in Christ’s lap is himself as a young boy. Originally he asked for him to be clothed in yellow but I didn’t like the result so we agreed on blue. He said he had both coloured clothes as a child when he was slightly younger than I have depicted. Peter is the central figure in his favourite green and with blue eyes too, the colours of a man of the seas. His image is very close to what he looks like. Hauntingly the man to his left is Judas Iscariot, who wore red, yes red. Next to him is John the Devine. I am the boy in light blue and also the black sheep. The young girl is my sister. The older girl is a follower.

The Woman Caught In Adultery

img_1958

This took many sittings. It is based on John 8. The Pharisees and scribes are about to stone to death the woman (adulteress) and are testing Jesus concerning the law of Moses. ….what did he write in the dust on the ground in front of them? John 8 does not say, but that may be because it got rubbed out. The Lord revealed it was Leviticus 20 verse 10. This is painted as the text would have been in Hebrew and facing them, which is why they look shame faced. This brilliant retort showed them that they had erred in law, because the male adulterer is nowhere to be found in John 8. Then the final knockout punch was the legendary line “Let him who is without sin cast the first stone. ”

The Crucifixion -John 19

IMG_1542.JPGimg_1541

This painting was a trial and painting crucifixion in the sense of me being Simon the Cyrene. Notice that the unrepentant criminal is placed on the side where the skull of Golgotha (death and hell) is and the saved criminal is on the side where the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea also pictured is, which represents resurrection and life. The Father was insistent on the fine detail, especially the Ark of the Covenant and the Ten Commandments tablets in Hebrew. See how the rock is rent or split by earthquake to allow his blood to flow down and for some to drip onto the mercy seat. The solar eclipse and blood red moon I am convinced happened too so I painted them both. There were numerous times I said “it is finished” but it was not.

….The Lord took over my fine detail paint brush and my hand and eyes for his face looking down at his mother Mary. Also at the foot of the cross is John the Devine, Mary Magdalene and Mary wife of Clopas. That would have been the point where he said the lines from John 19 verses 26-27:   “When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.”

Jesus Christ – The Alpha and the Omega

img_1957-2

 

This Christian icon style painting was a worthwhile trial because it now accompanies me when I am witnessing. The fine detail of the facial features were refined painstakingly by the Lord. The most challenging aspect was the thin titanium white hood of his vestment or raiment. I got impurity in the colour many times due to demonic interference, but eventually managed to achieve an acceptable rendering. No painter can truly create a likeness that could describe the Lord’s countenance, This Christian icon style painting was a worthwhile trial because it now accompanies me when I am witnessing.
