"Our Saviour's Love For His Bride"

 "Our Saviour's Love For His Bride"
This painting was commenced last week and on Friday was given the opportunity to photograph a horse  who was standing near the side of the road which I passed by in my car at the entrance of our town.   His posture was exactly the same as the outline of a horse that I could see in the background of a painting that I was led to paint in the spirit a couple of days prior.  Again all it took was to outline the horse and shade around him and he was revealed.  The first thing that caught my eye when I did the background was the grove of olive trees up the side of a mountain.  At the time the Holy Spirit was saying there are trees up the mountain and today I am sensing that the Lord is
showing me a picture of the Mount of Olives.  I have seen photos today of the actual Mount of Olives in Jerusalem that closely resemble the picture he gave me.  The olive trees  just appeared in the background as I was laying the paint.  The Lord is revealing and all I need to do is listen and obey.   Today I could also see Jesus' nail pierced hands in the painting, on the right hand side and the scripture that is coming to mind is from Isaiah 53:5 "by He was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed".  The red in the painting is symbolic of the blood He shed for us and the redemptive power of His blood.  Red also appeared in his eyes - the fire in his eyes is His love for His bride. 
A highway is being prepared.  Prepare ye the way.  "The way is up", He is saying.  Moving up the mountain requires dedication.  The mountain symbolizes the promised land - God's promises.  The land of Israel, the promised land, His holy land.
Nahum 1:15 "Look there on the mountains, the feet of one who brings good news, who proclaims peace!  Celebrate your festivals, Judah, and fulfill your vows.  No more will the wicked invade you; they will be completely destroyed"(NIV).  He is proclaiming peace, completeness, wholeness, safety, fullness.  Jesus our Prince of Peace.  He has given us the victory and we can worship Him with a heart fully surrendered.  He has set us free.
The other scriptures that are coming to mind are Zechariah 14:4 and Acts 1:11.  The very location where Jesus was betrayed and rejected is where he will return as our triumphant King.   Hallelujah to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  JESUS, I am eagerly awaiting your return.
Blessings and love
