Passing On The Flame
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.
