Prophetic Art…

Posted June 18th, 2012 by Leah and filed in Word of Encouragement

Prophetic Art…that is the subject I will be teaching to a missionary training group coming to The Farm tomorrow. When asked, I said yes to do something I have never done before.  Stepping out in faith remembering that God never fails me.

As I sat down seeking direction and revelation knowledge, this is what the Spirit showed me. I am hoping it will inspire you this Monday morning.

For where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint,

but blessed is he who keeps the law.  

Proverbs 29:18

God clearly tells us through this Word that by keeping His Word…by obeying that still small voice, we won’t become like a people discouraged, hopeless and ready to give in to the ways of the world, or our flesh. Remembering that there is another realm, a Spiritual world surrounding us, causes us to be more sensitive to the ways and things of God.

Truth is absolute,but often it takes being still, waiting and closing our eyes and mind to the rush of the natural world whirling around us to allow God to paint his vision on the canvas of our heart. Truth becomes clearer when we simply let go…

The Apostle Paul tells us that we are God’s workmanship, his poem, his creative expression to the world. God created us by breathing His life into our lungs, which naturally inhale and exhale until we die. Rarely do we consider the work our lungs do moment by moment. Creative thought, expressed through all you say and do, can flow with that same creative ease through your life, just as naturally as breathing, but it takes learning to be still. Learning to wait on the Lord. Learning to surrender the paint brush into more capable hands.

While life and breath is still in us, let us breathe beauty and creativity into the lives of those God places in our path.

Art is a form of expression, and you are created supernaturally by a huge God who has surrounded you with angels, and He will rend the Heavens, when necessary, to come down and help you! He created the boundaries for the oceans and causes the tide to ebb and flow, the sun, moon and stars to perform on cue. Think on these things…

Be still and know that I am God.

Psalm 46:10

for good things come to those who wait with expectation!

So with paint brush in hand, we will draw and paint as the Holy Spirit leads.

A blank WHITE canvas….WHITE is the sum of all colors. White indicates purity and holiness. The saints in Heaven adorn WHITE linen robes, dipped in the blood of Jesus.

Though our sins are like SCARLET, surrendering our canvas to Jesus makes us WHTE as snow.

WHITE and RED mixed make PINK. Too often we desire to look through rose-colored glasses, only understanding in part, only committing in part to Him who fully knows.  But God knows our lives are a process. It takes walking through the RED sea to recognize the power of His RED blood. There is a foundation below our feet and covering above our head…what does that mean to you?  What does that look like, prophetically, to you?

Over the last few weeks I have really enjoyed studying the Scriptures that refer to color, shape and movement. Above is just a snippet of the teaching.

My prayer for us this week is

BLESSED ARE THE PURE IN HEART, FOR THEY SHALL SEE GOD.  

Matthew 5:8

For when we sit still and listen to the Holy Spirit, we take time to let God empty us of all those pinky flesh-staining characteristics, and fill us full to overflowing with pure motives issuing from a clean heart pumping the life and ways of Jesus, his blood, through our lives. As surely as the tide will ebb and flow today, the Spirit’s supernatural ways will ebb and flow through us. Then, we will truly see God… in everything.

What picture does that paint in your life?

In Him we live and move and have our very being…be creative with the beautiful ways and things of God!

    You are always an inspiration. I will be attending a “fun” paint class tonight starting with a blank canvas. How timely are His words to me as I plan to focus on this particular teaching all day in preparation for tonight. I anticipate God attending this class with me in a way I have never experienced before. Thank you and have a wonderful day.
