One New Man Art Painting: Windblown Olive Tree

Windblown Olive Tree

Scripture: “Behold I will lift up My hand in an oath to the nations, and set up My standard for the peoples;  they shall bring your sons in their arms and your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders”… (Isaiah 49:22)

“I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all the countries, and will bring you into your own land.” (Isaiah 36:24)

“Then they will know that I am Adonai, their God, since it was I who caused them to go into exile among the nations and I who will gather them back to their own land. I will never again leave them there.” (Ezekiel 39:28)

“...but if you return to Me and obey My mitzvot, and do them, then even if your dispersed people are at the ends of the heavens, I will gather them from there, and bring them back to the place where I have chosen for My Name to dwell.” (Nehemiah 1:9)

Reflecting on my own call to pray for Israel over the years, I felt keenly aware of the storms of war and threats of annihilation that Israel has constantly endured, and is enduring right now.

This painting encourages us to see the strength of the sturdy Olive Tree of Israel as it continues to withstand those strong winds set against her.

At the same time we notice these winds are also winds for restoration, both natural and spiritual, broken off branches are blown back into their Land and into their own Olive Tree.

The Olive Tree of God is a planting of the Lord that cannot be uprooted or destroyed. 

This picture represents the prophetic fulfillment of ancient prophecies predicting the regathering of the Jewish people from the nations, beginning slowly in the late 1800’s.  

In our generation we are witnessing increasing momentum, which will surely culminate in the complete physical and spiritual return of the Jewish people back to their Land and back to their God 

The broken off branches of Israel are being restored back into their own Olive Tree, in preparation for The Return of their Messiah, Yeshua, Jesus
