Crown of Thorns


Is a painting that has evolved over many years, as I have gathered insight, from the Lord who would reveal the each portion. We all are aware of the Lord’s prophesied return. The “Crown of Thorns” shows the pouring out of His Spirit upon the earth.

2 Thessalonians 2; King James Version (KJV)

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

Here are some interesting details of the painting: “Crown of Thorns”

Somewhere in the heavens is the throne of God. I believe that there are many aspects of the Lord’s throne. One such is a birthing celestial body called a Nebula, a place where new stars are created. Represented by the boiling redish clouds and lighting. Seen coming from the nebula is a glorious light streaming down through the crown of thorns. The light represents the Lord’s of Glory. Light is the beginning of creation as the Lord said “let there be light” and all things came into being.

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. Gen 1:3

The Crown represents many aspects, this is good. “There”, he says, “we may behold the thorny crown, which was only set upon the head of Our Redeemer in order that all the thorns of the world might be gathered together and broken.” (Migne, LXX, 621). – Wikipedia

Jesus is the door of heaven and eternal life. The crown has the evidence of the blood shed on Calvary.
It is the blood that gives life and without the sheading of blood there is no remission of sins. Heb. 9:22

Only two countries have been fashioned by God. The first country, Israel made the way for us to receive salvation through Jesus Christ. Second is the United States of America, founded by God, on Godly principles, through willing men and women. Represented by the two flags hovering over the earth.

The earth shows Israel and the Middle East. Note how small this great nation is yet knowing how great a role it plays in the whole earth, then the United States of America. Stating: “ Under God we stand”.

We as spectators need to draw into the assume presence of God. With a heart of thanksgiving for what He has done and for what is yet to come. Being in prayer for Jerusalem and God’s people for their salvation. Salvation is meant in the fullness, joy, health, prosperity and wisdom…

We also need to learn to walk ever so close to the Lord having his full presence to be a redeemer in these times. Jesus is the way and all must come to and through Him. Our master Lord Jesus lives in the hearts of mankind.
