My name is Richard Sullivan I have discovered that painting is a tool that God is using to speak in an unusual way to hearts as He does for me thanks to Engage Art. N/a


Our Warfare in the heavenlies

Artist Statement

I created this painting not only to remind me but to remind others that our warfare's in the Heavenly Realm against spiritual forces of evil. I created a visual of the three stages Earth, spiritual forces in Heavenly places and heaven where God resides, the water represents that we will never thirst, and The Sword and the flame of fire of the Holy Spirit The Sword being the word of God and the truth to combat spiritual forces, the spirit of God's word and the Holy Spirit,the cross is the also our weapon.Even though I am just a novice in painting I believe God uses visual art to minister to people's hearts. It's through engage art that I really realized this.

How it fits into contest

Ephesians 6:12 all my inspiration first of all came from engage art I was really impressed and how we can be used by God to speak words we cannot say on canvas and so out of that context I was able to see in Ephesians chapter 6:12 to help others see that there is a Realm of Darkness that we are engaging Warfare in all the time and if would we use the sword of the spirit and the Holy Spirit we can win these battles that are in the Heavenlies.


Myself,my wife's inspiration to paint, love and support. To God be the glory!
