“The Invisible Mask” is truly God himself.
The image illustrates the word of God is the way, he is our true protector and mask to this sinful world.
The bible illustrated is our sword ..the word of God, while his mercy and faithfulness are encircled and captivated by the radiance of the rainbow. Jesus died on the cross for our sins and his Holy Spirit of Purity and Holiness lives on through the dove.
While the world looks on for physical protection, our shield is invisible...God himself.
Remembering “Temptation” my past project and previous Short Film entry to the Engage Art Contest in 2020-2021. The challenges presented itself once more with my recent Short Film.
“The Invisible Mask”, title of my Short Film… a potential entry geared towards the Video Arts category to the Engage Art Contest 2022.
This however did not happen as challenges and obstacles prevented the film from being reality. I felt hopeless and disappointed about the situation and it seemed like déjà vu once more.
At our most disappointing time God is always there and while trying to be positive about the situation my thoughts came to the Bible... The word of God and a new idea was born. I believe prayer and faith altered the direction of my thoughts and entry category to being Visual Arts.
Not to miss on the opportunity to the contest, challenging thoughts were to convey the same message of the Short Film to a single related image and with God’s intervention, “The Invisible Mask” concept and image created.
At times, we may not understand why things happen but through our physical and spiritual battles, difficulties and experiences, God is always in control!
The Invisible mask … God himself.
The existence of human are of both natural and spiritual embodied together…hence lies the greatest contradiction within ourselves.
While the struggle and pain of our earthly existence are real so are God’s plan and purpose in our lives.
“The Invisible Mask” illustrates the word of God is the Way, the Truth and the Light. God is our true protector and mask to this sinful world.
Quote extract Ephesians 6:10-20: “In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
While the world is in turmoil, wars, rumors of wars and pestilences to name a few indicated in the book of Revelation. Normality and betterment seems to be the watchwords of the world.
As spiritual battle rages within us and against us… our physical being against spiritual, good vs evil…God’s word is our shield and comfort in a dying world.
Let us be reminded of this with a few scriptures…
Do not be overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good.
1 John 4:4
You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.
In all these things, we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
May eyes of the world be open to the Greatest “Invisible Mask”
Jesus our God!
God's intervention and guidance.
