"Riding on the Waves of Glory"
Pam Finlay
December 2015
It's not often that I am given a series of paintings that very similarly express a vision. With this series of paintings it is a case of the first will be last and the last will be first and I hear the scripture in Matthew 20:16 resonating in my heart.  There is a reward set before us.  This painting which was painted last I was led to call - "On the Waves of Glory".  Praise is expressing love and devotion to our Lord.  Waves of praise and worship, with hands lifted high and coming to Him on bended knee, God is moving through His people and filling the earth with His glory.  
Habakkuk 2:14F
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea (NKJV)
Psalm 72:19
And blessed be His glorious name forever!  And let the whole earth be filled with His glory.  Amen and amen (NKJV)
Holy Spirit is coming in wave after wave, wash and drink in the glory of His presence.  Be carried on the current of His waves.  Be filled with the beauty of His Spirit, He is washing us clean as we lift our praises to Him.  God inhabits the praises of His people. Praise lifts us into God's presence and power, He dwells in the atmosphere.  Praise is the opening to enter into His glory.
Psalm 22:3
Yet, I know that you are most holy; it's indisputable.  You are God-Enthroned, surrounded with songs, living among the shouts of praise of your princely people (TPL)
Psalm 100:4
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise (NKJV)
Psalm 66:2
Sing praise about the glory of His name. Make His praise glorious (ISV) 
Praise, praise, praise the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!!!
God is flooding the earth with wave after wave of His glory.   He wants us to be one with the waves, lifting our never ending praises to Him, being transparent like the crystal clear waters. 
This was the first in a series of paintings that the Lord gave me to paint in early December 2015.  After I finished painting I noticed that the wave resembled huge angel wings.  We are covered under the shadow of his wings  
I could see His waves of glory coming over the nations and the face of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah appeared in the wave as if He was watching the tidal wave coming in to shore, transforming lives, washing people clean. The three white horses also appeared in the wave and immediately I thought of the Godhead Three in One, and the white horse being symbolic of power and purity in the Word of God.  Praise is the key to intimacy with the Father.   I could see the outlines in the foreground of people lifting their hands in praise and also coming to Him on bended knee, postured in humility, basking in the Lords’ presence, filled with His light, carrying His glory to the nations, living His word.   Jesus Christ, the word made flesh endures forever.
Scriptures received for this painting were Psalm 91:4, John 1:14, Isaiah 60:1-2, 2 Corinthians 3:18.
As I was preparing to share this painting at our local church congregation on the 10/1/16 Holy Spirit gave me two more scriptures pertaining to the painting being Isaiah 66:12, Habakkuk 2:14.
Love and Blessings,
