"I wish that all the Lord's people were prophets
and that the Lord would put His Spirit on them!"
- Numbers 11:29
Yes, fulfilled in Jesus, fulfilled in the New Covenant!
Thank You, Lord!
This picture came back on September 2, actually, and it's just taken me some time to paint it and write about it. It came about the time that I felt the Lord convict me that I needed to understand that this art He's given me is "prophetic art", and that I needed to say so on this site and write about it (I wrote about it here).
I wanted to draw a picture of it, and as I thought of the verse from Numbers (written in Japanese on the picture), this is what I saw -- or actually, it's more of what I felt: the Lord kind of throwing open His arms and throwing His Spirit out to us. I called it "Moses' Wish" but really, it is God's wish! He has wanted to give His Spirit to us all much more than Moses wanted, much more than even we wanted!
As I began to paint it, I began to talk to Him more about it and be in His presence, and He melted me in His love with a few thoughts:
This is You giving Your Self to us! Your love! Your Spirit! You putting Yourself in us!
This is Your love for Your people! Like a husband & wife... we want to open ourselves and give everything inside, our deepest most open opening to give ourselves to one another. This is You doing the same, opening Yourself & giving us Your inmost everything, Your heart, Your soul, Your very Spirit.
