The Promise of Heaven

 The man (this painting belongs to) had a very hard time several years back.  His parents died within a short period of each other.  His grief was understandably difficult because of missing them so much. 

As I painted The Promise of Heaven I saw something unexplainable in it. 

 This man was adopted.  He has a sister who is also adopted.  The parent did not have a biological child. Yet, in the painting I clearly saw a young girl.  I paint intuitively, so things come forth that I do not paint in, but feel the Holy Spirit leads in to help His people.

 When doing any art, I pray while I paint.  Asking the man if there was a chance there might have been some explanation for the girl in the painting, he said yes.  He had found out from a close relative recently that when his mother was young she had a tubal ligation pregnancy.  She had not told anyone about it.  The doctors said she could not have another child because of the surgery performed.  Only a very close relative knew this, and shared it with the man.  His mother believed it was a girl. 

Only God can reveal hidden things.  I had no knowledge of any of this!  Only the Holy Spirit.  This man told me recently that he does not even have to look at the painting to remember the promise.  It is ingrained in his mind.  What a blessing to know that God speaks through Prophetic art!


Tree from Heaven

Tree from Heaven

This person had a negative identity in which they resided.  They did not give themselves enough credit for all the times they have helped other people.  The Lord wanted them to know a part of His heavenly realm that they will dwell in.  I painted out the Tree by the River of Life for them.  They were to see how beautiful they are, and how the Lord sees them.  The tree represents their Life!  For by the golden waters they will dwell in eternity!


The Worship Leader

This man is a wonderful musician.  When I painted this painting I saw he would become a worship leader with the anointing of the Lord on him.  It happened around a year later.  He did not pursue it, but he was asked by the church to take the position. 

The promises of the Lord are always faithful!

New Road / Healing Entering

This person needed new direction for the future. Everything seemed to be hanging in the air.  God gave me this painting for them.  It represented how the Holy Spirit was building a solid foundation in His creation for them, even as everything in  their life had little confirmation. Notice the Portal to the lower right.

Healing Entering.



Seeds move forth from God's Kingdom continuously.  God has not stopped creating!


The Stars of Abraham / The Promise

This man was in a hard place.  He wanted to hear God - as well as receive answers for his concern about his future.  This painting for him would contain a journey he did not plan.  Circumstances came into his situation where he would travel like the children of Israel in the desert, not knowing their destination.  But, God would faithfully lead him to the Promise Land. 

The Worship Angels

The Worship Angels was on display in a church in my area during the Christmas Season of 2019, and through the New Year month of January.  It represents the angels in heaven worshipping with the people on earth.
