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.

FASHIONED

"FASHIONED"
Pam Finlay 
acrylic on board
May 2018

These leaves, I was led to draw patterns into.  As I was finishing this painting I heard the word "fashioned".  God is fashioning his people, preparing and shaping them into His image.  He is watching the change in His new creations, each one uniquely patterned.  The scripture that is resonating in my heart for this painting is from John 3:8
The Spirit breathes where he will, and you hear his voice, but you do not know from where he comes and where he goes; thus is everyone who is born from the Spirit.(Aramaic Bible)

As the wind blows you do not know where it comes from but you can hear and feel it as it moves the leaves. It's unseen but mighty powerful like the Spirit of God.  I think of the scripture in Acts 2, the sound from heaven coming like a mighty rushing wind on the day of  Pentecost as the Holy Spirit filled the people. 

Blessings

THE WHITE LION

THE WHITE LION OF ZION
Pam Finlay
May 2018
Acrylic on Canvas

His sound echoes throughout the earth.  His eyes tell us so much.  He is alive.  He is the Word and He is more active than any two edged sword.  His word penetrates and pierces our hearts, it divides joints and marrow, dividing the soul and spirit. He knows our motives and what is on our heart.  Only He knows how to divide our thoughts and intentions.    He lives in us and His anointing breaks the yoke of bondage.  He is a warring warrior for us.   He intercedes on our behalf and His word divides, separating us unto himself.
As I was painting I kept hearing the word “dissection” and was led to the scripture in

 2 Timothy 2:15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
The words “rightly dividing” mean to make a straight cut, to dissect the correct message.  He desires for us to meditate and study His word and through His Holy Spiri t the truth will be revealed. 

God’s word is living.  He desires for us to eat the meat of His Word.  Through his word we are provided with eternal nourishment, our spiritual food. 

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Blessings
