"Wise Woman Warrior Arise"
Acrylic on Canvas
A new painting just finished and was told to call it “Wise Woman Warrior Arise”. This is how the Lord desires us to be in this hour. We are to be wise like Deborah, awaken and utter a song, a victory song.
Deborah was a wise woman of God. She was a prophetess who had influence. Through her prophetic eyes she called on and poured out God’s wisdom. Her heart was fixed on God. He raised her up to judge the people of Israel. Her dwelling house was under a palm tree. There she dispensed righteousness, justice and mercy on God’s behalf.
Wake up, wise, warrior woman of God, He is calling you. Hear and sing a song of victory, the sound of who God has made you to be. Rise up all you nations, tribes, tongues and peoples, recite the victories of the LORD, fight the good fight and listen to Wisdom’s call. Christ is Wisdom. He is the centre and source of all divine revelation.
When I looked closely in the background of the painting I could see many fish. I hear Him saying the land and sea, I’m taking it back. He’s redeeming all back to Him all that has been lost.
Revelation 7:9 After this I saw many multitudes which were impossible to count, which were of all people, generations, nations and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, and wearing white garments and with palms in their hands. (Aramaic)
Judges 4:4 Now Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lappidoth, judged Israel at that time.
5 She sat under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in the hill county of Ephraim, and the Israelites came up to her for judgment. (AMPC)
Judges 5:On that day Deborah and Barak son of Abinoam sang this song:
2 When the princes in Israel take the lead, when the people willingly offer themselves – praise the Lord.
3 “Hear this, you kings! Listen you rulers! I even I, will sing to the Lord; I will praise the LORD, the God of Israel, in song.
4 “When you, LORD, went out from Seir, when you marched from the land of Edom, the earth shook, the heavens poured, the clouds poured down water.
5 The mountains quaked before the LORD, the One of Sinai, before the LORD, the God of Israel.
6 In the days of Shamgar son of Anath, in the days of Jael, the highways were abandoned; travellers took to winding paths.
7 Villagers in Israel would not fight; they held back until I, Deborah, arose, until I arose, a mother in Israel.
8 God chose new leaders when war came to the city gates, but not a shield or spear was seen, among forty thousand in Israel.
9 My heart is with Israel’s princes, with the willing volunteers among the people. Praise the LORD!
10 “You who ride on white donkeys, sitting on your saddle blankets, and you who walk along the road, consider
11 the voice of the singers at the watering places. They recite the victories of the LORD, the victories of his villagers in Israel. Then the people of the LORD went down to the city gates.
12 Wake up, wake up, Deborah! Wake up, wake up, break out in song! (NIV)
Blessings and love,Pam.
