One New Man Art Painting: Passing On The Flame

Passing On The Flame

Scriptures: “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”  (Matthew 24:14)

”...to be a minister of Messiah Yeshua to the Gentiles. He gave me the priestly duty of proclaiming the gospel of God, so that the Gentiles might become an offering acceptable to God, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.”(Romans 15:16)

“Go therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” (Mathew 28:19)

“Then their offspring will be known among the nations, their descendants among the peoples. All who see them will recognize them, for they are the seed that Adonai has blessed.” (Isaiah 61:9)

Just imagine the infinite patience of Almighty God to so carefully and intricately create the tiniest detail of the cosmos.  And that in ‘a place’ and in ‘a time’ He can impregnate the core of humanity with His Life!

The eternal reality is that wherever the Holy Spirit flame filled branches were scattered they passed on the flame fire of Life from above to many different kinds of branches. The Good News of salvation in Yeshua, Jesus was spread wherever they went. 

This painting depicts the Holy Spirit Olive Tree of Israel passing on the light of Yeshua to Gentile nations of the earth. 

Notice three different colour panels in the background on top of which I painted three different kinds of trees.  The idea roughly being, the Fir tree for the West, the pink tree for the East, and the middle tree for all the nations in between.  On top of those trees, I painted three flamed filled menorah trees, representing the gospel going out from Jerusalem to the ends of the earth, carried first by Jewish believers. 

Finally, adding sparkling stars I wanted to express the divine transforming wonder of the ‘new birth’  through the work of the Holy Spirit, as the gospel is proclaimed across the nations Earth, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.
