The Commission

"The Commission"
6"x6" oil and cold wax on wood
In Progress

Matthew 28:  16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go.17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said,“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
     I haven't posted in the past couple of weeks, and went a short spell of not being able to paint.  Creativity can only be squashed for so long, and then something must be done about it.  I haven't worked with oil and cold wax for awhile, either.  I always enjoy late nights, when all is quiet and I can commune with the Lord as I paint.  This one was painted during one of those nights recently.  It's not quite finished, but I don't anticipate a whole lot changing in it.  When lots of focus being on the end times, I can't help but be reminded of the Great Commission.  It's not to shout from the mountain tops that the end is here, but to make disciples from all nations, and to teach them to obey God's commands.  When we are in that place, God will take care of us.  I also think about the scripture where the people were going to stone Jesus, and yet he walked right through them!  Nobody even saw him!  God either blinded their eyes, or did a super camo on Jesus!  I believe he will do the same for us, when we are in fact under his wing.  So, go....make disciples of men!  Make them strong in the Lord, and working in His mighty power.  If it is the end times as so many believe...Jesus is coming for a mighty, and strong bride!  The disciples that follow his command.  Do you know Jesus?  If you want to know Him, and don't know how...contact me.  I lead you to Him!
