I was sharing with a Christian acquaintance that I felt that this would bring healing to my city which still
celebrates the battle every year. She said, "Oh my, it is not only
healing to your city, but to the entire nation.
This was one of the most difficult paintings I have ever done because of the
spiritual warfare. I can't say what was
accomplished in the spirit, but I can say this prophetic art was
"The Anchor Holds"
Jesus our anchor holds us steady thru all the weather of our lives.
how god showed me I was a prophetic artist
"Born Free" shows mother and baby dolphin enjoying the fact
that they were born free. We can have that freedom when we accept Jesus
Christ as our Savior. He sets us free!
My pastor had been telling me that I was a prophetic painter. He
explained it to me and I still was not sure that I could do prophetic art, or that there was any anointing on my paintings. I didn't really understand what painting prophetic art meant.
My husband and I were doing some outdoor art festivals. At one
festival there was a young girl that came by with her grandmother. She really wanted a print of the ‘Born Free’ dolphins,
but grandmother did not want to get it.
About two hours later, after
they had been through the entire show, they came back. The grandmother
got her a small print of the dolphins.
A couple of nights later the Lord gave me a powerful dream. I saw
same young girl in the dream; she was now about 12 years old. She looked
directly at me and said, “Thank you very much.”
I knew by the Spirit
that because of having the dolphins with God’s anointing on the painting in her
bedroom that she had accepted Jesus Christ as her savior. Praise God!
Now I knew that there were reasons why the Lord had me painting
certain things. I understand now that prophetic paintings are not only
pleasing to the eye, but they accomplish things in the spirit realm.
I put this painting "Springtime" on this page, not because I considered it a prophetic painting, but because it has special meaning to me.
I was painting it, I imagined that I was painting the river of life
that we all travel. The road of
life we travel while here on earth. I thought a river was
prettier to paint, than a road. Also, I was thinking
about the river that comes from heaven.
We live in a house by
our river. I put sparkles on the water and beautiful springtime flowers
by the river to signify new life. The river curves around through our
life and if we make the right choices, we choose God. Hence the river
leads to the church in the background. And far in the background are the
mountains of the Lord.
I had this painting for sale at an outdoor
art festival. A gentleman came by and asked me where the place was that
I had put into the painting? I told him that it was not an actual
place, but that I had painted it out of my head. He said, "I sure would
like to be in your head."
Wow! That was the greatest compliment anyone had ever paid me for my paintings.
When the man viewed the painting, he felt the
peace I felt, when I was painting it. God's peace and love can be felt through prophetic art.
That's what prophetic painting is all about! You can do it, too!
