WHAT IS PROPHETIC PAINTING?
Revelation 19:10“The testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy.”
"Artists are the life-givers in culture. We are a pivotal intersection point where the Kingdom of Heaven meets culture. It is there that we have the unique opportunity, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to translate the Kingdom of Heaven into a language that bypasses words and goes directly into the human spirit. When we collaborate with the Holy Spirit in this dance of Kingdom creativity, His power, His Life and His Light merge with our faith, creative thoughts, imaginations, desires and skill into art that carries the literal presence and power of God. It is in this context that our art, no matter the creative medium becomes prophetic." - Matt Tommey
What is PROPHESY?
"The New Testament gift of prophecy is a regulated message or report in human words usually made to the gathered believers based on a spontaneous, personal revelation from the Holy Spirit for the purpose of edification, encouragement, consolation, conviction or guidance but not necessarily free from a mixture of human error, and thus needing assessment on the basis of the apostolic (Biblical) teaching and mature spiritual wisdom.” —John Piper.
What is ART?
"Wikipedia defines art as, “a diverse range of human activities in creating visual, auditory or performing artifacts (artworks), expressing the author’s imaginative or technical skill, intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power. In their most general form these activities include the production of works of art, the criticism of art, the study of the history of art, and the aesthetic dissemination of art.”
Accessing the heart of the Father
- "In the beginning God CREATED..." Genesis 1:1
- "So God created mankind (MARY KRISTI) in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;" .. Genesis 1:27
This is what we know to be true, since we are created in HIS image then we are created to CREATE!
Act of WORSHIP
ACT of PRAYER
To better understand the Biblical foundation for prophetic art and its power to release the Kingdom of God, let me introduce a couple of applicable scriptures:
- Revelation 19:10“The testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy.”
- I Corinthians 14:3 “But everyone who prophesies speaks to men for their strengthening, encouragement and comfort."
