One New Man Art Painting: Restored Land

Restored Land

Scripture: “This is what the Lord says: “In the time of my favor I will answer you, and in the day of salvation I will help you; I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land and to reassign its desolate inheritances”,  (Isaiah 49:8)

“That land will belong to the remnant of the people of Judah; there they will find pasture. In the evening they will lie down in the houses of Ashkelon. The Lord their God will care for them; he will restore their fortunes”.(Zephaniah 2:7)

“... the voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the voice of them who say: ‘Give thanks to Adonai-Tzva’ot, for Adonai is good, for His love endures forever!’ as they bring offerings of thanksgiving into the House of Adonai. For “I will restore the land from the exile as it was at first,” declares Adonai.”(Jeremiah 33:11)

“For Adonai will have compassion on Jacob and will again choose Israel and settle them in their own land. The outsider will join himself with them and will cling to the house of Jacob.”(Isaiah 14:1)

Ever since I can remember, the Lord called me to pray for Israel.  By His Grace alone its been on my heart for many many years. I was given a solid biblical foundation in the Prophetic Word, concerning Israel by the ministry of Derek Prince and others.. 

The historical geographical and biblical background of the restoration of Israel has been deeply etched on my heart.

My first trip to Israel was back in 1986, I’ve  visited many more times since then. Therefore you will understand when I say this painting makes my heart sing. 

While painting  I was reminded of the places I’ve been, the people I’ve met and the wonderful prayer journeys I’ve made throughout Israel.. 

Feeling fully immersed in joyful memories,  I painted this impression of the Land being refreshed and springing back to life. Being reminded of the words in the the prophetic scriptures that  streams of living waters are once again flowing throughout this once dry and thirsty land

What a joy to paint and pray into this incredible restoration of Israel in our day and in this generation. We are most fortunate to be born for a time such as this.
