HADASSAH

“HADASSAH”
Pam Finlay 
Acrylic on canvas
November 2018

Hadassah and those Myrtle blossoms.  

She is a picture of the bride of Christ in all their splendour, highly anticipating the arrival of their King.  The fragrance that emanates from them when the crushing takes place is divine.  Behold the door has been opened for them to enter in.   Jesus is the open door.  He is doing a work in their flesh so that they can radiate and manifest the glory of Yahwah.  

Hadassah speaks of union in marriage as does the Myrtle flower which is the Hebrew emblem for marriage.  

Hadassah was the original name of Esther in the bible.  She is an emblem of victory.  

This is the poem on the painting 

Feeling those butterflies
fluttering in my heart.
Daydreaming came at the beginning 
and gave me quite a start.
Something special is happening,
a change is taking place.
Falling so deep in love with you,
and I see to see Your face 
                       Pam Finlay 

Lord, help me to emanate you and radiate your presence as the season of marriage approaches.  Prepare me as a bride for your glory.  
Blessings

THE ROSE OF HIS HEART

“The Rose of His Heart”
Pam Finlay 
Acrylic on Paper
November 2018 

Innocent and Blameless is the Rose of His Heart.  She has a heart of faith and is like a flaming sword, on fire for the Word of God.  

The two words - “Innocent and Blameless” were given to me in worship, to confirm God’s word a day after I started this painting.  When I started painting the Holy Spirit brought me the word “innocence” when I looked at the young lady’s face that I was painting.  The word innocent also means pure.  

The other phrase he placed in my spirit was “the Rose of His Heart”.  His eternally young bride is His rose.  She is both innocent and blameless because of Christ.  He has made a way for her to have both of these traits, to be without blemish in the world she lives in.  He’s calling her to be separate.  
2 Corinthians 6:17 
“So come out from among unbelievers and be separate,” says the Lord, “And do not touch what is unclean; And I will graciously receive you and welcome you(with favor)”.   AMP

The bible speaks of the two words, innocent and blameless, together in two scriptures and He took me there. 

Psalms 19:13 “Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; Let them not have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless, And I shall be innocent of great transgression.”
NKJV

Philippians 2:15 “so that you may prove yourselves to be blameless and guileless, innocent and uncontaminated, children of God without blemish in the midst of a [morally] crooked and [spiritually] perverted generation, among whom you are seen as bright lights [beacons shining out clearly] in the world [of darkness].       AMP

SPRING CREEK

Pam Finlay 
“Spring Creek”
Acrylic on Canvas
August 2018

Locals venture to Spring Creek after the summer rains.  It is Bowen's hidden gem, a special place that comes to life when there's water flowing through it.  When you visit it is like you are going back in time.  The rocks look like fossils and are like none I have ever seen before.  They are full of cavities and so unique, and I wonder if they are found anywhere else.  
Capturing these fascinating qualities of the place is what I have aimed to express in this painting.  You too, can come visit this hidden gem through my eyes, exploring creation's masterpiece.
Blessings,

THE WATER POURER

Pam Finlay 
“The Water Pourer”
Acrylic on Paper
September 2018 

Fill my cup Lord from the wells of salvation, refresh my soul.  You are my joy Lord.

Jesus said “I am the living water”.  The wells of the world do not quench our soul.  Only Jesus can refresh, restore and renew.  The wells of salvation never run dry.  He is the water pourer, pouring His Spirit out on all flesh.  

Inspired scriptures are:
Isaiah 12:
2 Behold God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; ‘For Yah, the Lord, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation.’ “
3 Therefore with joy you will draw from the wells of salvation. (NKJV)

Numbers 24:
7 He shall pour water from his buckets, And his seed shall be in many waters.  His king shall be higher than Agag, And His Kingdom shall be exalted.(NKJV)

Ezekiel 36:
24 “For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. 
25 Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. 
26 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.”
27 I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them.
28 Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God.”(NKJV)

Acts 2:

17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams.(NKJV)

A NEW SONG

“A New Song”
Pam Finlay
Acrylic on paper
September 2018
“A New Song”
The harp of 22 strings and those living letters.  

The harp releases the song as the harpist plays in worship and the pleasant sound goes up to Father God.  The sons are the carriers of God’s song, the frequency of heaven, a glorious anthem of praise. 

Revelation 14:
2 And  I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder.  And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps.  
3 They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth.

THE ROYAL BLOODLINE





"The Royal Bloodline"
Pam Finlay
Watercolour on Paper
September 2018

“Run with the horses, His royal Bloodline is coming forth.  Be bold and determined and don’t hold back.  We have been placed on the earth for such a time as this people of God, to bear fruit and multiply”.

I had been reading a book about the life of Esther for a few weeks now and as I was reading through the book I sensed why I was reading it and why God had me see it at our local library.  Esther was so brave, determined and courageous for her people.  She stood as an example for how God wants us to be.    I was also thinking about the lineage of Christ, the bloodline that began at the cross, one new people from every tribe and tongue and nation.  Many nations coming together to form one new bloodline, the bloodline of Christ.   I was led to call the painting “The Royal Bloodline”.  It is a picture of the bride of Christ, like Esther, with her horse.  God told me “we are to run with the horses”.
The scriptures I was given were
Genesis 1;28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.(NKJV)
1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen race who serve as Priests for the Kingdom, a holy people, a redeemed assembly; you should proclaim the praises of him who called you from darkness into his excellent light. (Aramaic version)
Blessings,
Pam

A Red Breast from God

“A Red Breast From God”
Mixed media Collage
Pam Finlay 
August 2018 

These little scarlet Robins are beautiful birds.  They are sometimes affectionately named “Robin Redbreasts”.  As the dawn awakens their clear flowing song can be heard.  
When I was painting I noticed hearts appearing in the background of the painting as well as one on my finger.  God was speaking to me about having a heart for him.  Remember Christ’s sacrifice for us(the red breast) and know that He is awakening resurrection life within you.  It’s a new day and our clear flowing sound can be heard in all the earth.  

Blessings
