These nine 36" x 36" paintings are nothing like my usual art that sells in galleries across the UK. Neither are they for sale.
Why? Because this body of work took me five years to complete, and was commissioned by God for the Monarchy, the Church and the Government.
They are a warning of a coming storm. A shaking of what (according to God) must fall. God didn’t tell me to paint them in order of history. They are not in order of WWII events, but, upon their completion, the Lord showed me they were in order of the armour of God.
They are a spiritual battle strategy. The orange represents where the HOPE is found if we follow our Commanding Officer’s orders and do not get involved with civilian affairs. 2 Tim 2 v 3-4
They represent also how God saved us from the greatest evil in WWII. Why? Because we, as a nation, prayed seven times, and each time God produced a miracle. The against-all-odds evacuation from Dunkirk being the most well known. But what has been lost to history is the fact that it was King George VI who called us to prayer … over and over. Churches were full to the brim. Who is calling us to national prayer today like King George VI? I believe these paintings and their message are the Lord’s love and grace to warn us of coming judgment.
Will we heed Him, put on our full armour and STAND firm? For the days are evil.
1. "ST PAUL’S IN THE BLITZ"
Reflection: 1 Peter 4 v17…Hebrews 12 v26-27…Jeremiah 6 v16-19
A storm is coming on the church. And a great shaking. We must look back and remember the ancient paths we once walked. With humble and repentant hearts, we must look again to the One who delivered us from the greatest evil and stand firm for Him. The orange CROSS is where the HOPE lies.
Reflection: Ephesians 6 v14…Revelations 12 v11-12
The soldiers gave all of themselves. They knew the truth that the hour had come to not love their lives. We defeat our enemies by not loving our life or anything in it. Jesus must be our only Lord. The orange BLOOD in the sea is where the HOPE lies.
3. "CHURCHILL & ROOSEVELT"
Reflection: Ephesians 6 v14…Isaiah 5 v7-8
Two leaders united in righteousness for a common cause made a powerful alliance. Our Levites’ righteousness comes only through their faith in Jesus’ pure sacrifice. We must put on his white robes. The orange on the UNITED CHAIRS standing together represents where the HOPE lies.
4. "ACTS OF KINDNESS"
Reflection: Ephesians 6 v15…Isiaiah 52 v7
For this girl, her miracle was being fed and loved. We carry a great gift of peace and good news. We must be ready to give away the gospel, that we ourselves have been given. The orange FEEDING SPOON represents where the HOPE lies.
5. "THE BLITZ"
Reflection: Ephesians 6 v16…Hebrews 11 v1-3
The firefighters had faith that no matter how great and numerous the fires, they could keep going to extinguish them. The faith of the small groups and the persistence of prayer warriors have such powers against the fires of hell and lies.The orange in their HELMETS unified in faith represents where the HOPE lies.
6. "BATTLE OF BRITAIN"
Reflection: Ephesians 6 v7….Acts 4 v12
Young men fought in the air to create a wall of salvation for Britain. We must build this wall again, fighting in the heavenlies through total obedience to God and trusting in only His salvation through grace as our protection. The orange on the soaring SPITFIRES represents where the HOPE lies.
7. "KING GEORGE VI"
Reflection: Ephesians 6 v17…Mathew 24 v35
King George VI called the nation to prayer seven times during WW2 because he knew the best and only weapon against evil was believing in the absolute truth of the Word of God. We must build our house only on this sure and solid foundation. The orange DOUBLE EDGED SWORD represents where the HOPE lies.
Reflection: Ephesians 6 v18…Nehemiah 1 v 4-7
The earnest call to national prayer saved many, many souls. The little boats were like those prayers reaching out across the sea with passionate heart felt requests to save our land. We must know the times in which we live and be alert to the same earnest, urgent need today. The orange LITTLE BOATS represent where the HOPE lies.
Reflection: Ephesians 6 v10-18…2 Corinthians 10v3-5
The pilots placed victory stickers on their planes depicting the swastika being blown apart. Our Lord Jesus has won the battle against the works of Satan. Again we must have Him at our front guard. The orange V for victory represents where the HOPE lies.
