"Beyond the Veil"
Acrylic on Canvas
Pam Finlay
December 2014

About two weeks ago I was listening to a worship song called “We Will Ride”.  I had been singing it constantly for a few days when one afternoon I walked into my art room and looked at a background wash I had done the week before and behold a white horse was looking at me in the background of the painting.  I could his eyes looking at me, his mane, the bridle and his ears.  All I had to do was outline what I could see in the background (the white horse supernaturally appeared).  Thank you Lord.  I knew He was referring to Revelation 19.  The white horse and its rider Jesus.  We will ride with the armies of heaven, dressed in white.   The bride riding alongside Jesus.   We will ride.  The righteousness of God.  The fire in His eyes is his love for His bride. 
As I proceeded to outline the white horse, the veil of the bride appeared and the title came in “Beyond the Veil”.  The presence of God manifest beyond the veil.  Our righteousness in Christ grants us access to enter.   An intimate relationship in prayer with Him, communing with Jesus is the key to transformation.  Going higher, moving on up.  It’s all about relationship.  The Bridegroom desires an intimate relationship with His bride.  The veil has been removed.  This is the day.
He has given us that new identity beyond the veil.   He desires us to step into our new identity.
Revelation 1:6
“And he has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen”.
The painting revealed that “softness” which shows my love toward Jesus, which is symbolized by the colours purple, blue and jade.  I saw these colours whilst worshipping at church prior to painting the bride.    Like a gentle breeze, Jesus Christ’s Holy Spirit surrounds us and lives within all who are willing to receive Him.  That gentle breeze is calm and refreshing, calling us deeper into our relationship with the Lord, so that His love can flow through us and infill us.  Jesus is the substance of our faith.  In 1 Kings19:12 The Holy Spirit came to Elijah through a still small voice.  As I was painting this the Holy Spirit was blowing through me like a gentle breeze, quiet and silent, wrapping me in His love.

He does not always come as a gentle breeze.  Sometimes He manifests like a whirlwind as in Job.  He spoke to Job out of the storm, giving direction and correction.  He humbled Job and brought him to repentance.    The Holy Spirit will never leave you.  He is always there and it is so important to listen when He speaks.
John 4:23
“The true worshippers shall worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth”
Isaiah 11:2
“And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest on him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord”.
His gift of tongues to us is our weapon against the enemy.  That wonder working power of Jesus’ blood protects us and gives us power over opposition from the enemy.  We can be His warriors in times of war.   It is only through Jesus.
Revelation 19:11 “Now I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse.  And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. “
2 Corinthians 3:16-18“but whenever a person turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.  Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.  But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit”. 

Blessings and Love
PS If you go to a previous blog called "Zionward" you will see a painting with very similar colours to "Beyond the Veil".
