“Be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.” (Ephesians 6:10 NASB Bible) The enemy brings fire storms in many forms today. I wanted to show a fierce, napalm bomb sort of fire to represent our dangers. The naked man holding the Bible represents our fragility and inability to fight evil powers and principalities on our own. God is not about to abandon us in our time of need. God provides the armor, guidance, hope, and protection every second of our life. I like showing God granting protection through his messengers, the angels. My aim was to show the contrast between the battle and God’s protection.
My painting reflects the text by showing the struggles between the powers and principalities and God’s protection. I showed each piece of armor to spark our memory around what each represents… girded loins - truth, breastplate - righteousness, shoes - preparation of the Gospel of peace, shield - faith, and the helmet - salvation.
The origional painting is acrylic paint on stretched canvas, $850.
