This kinesthetic acrylic thick painting describes my personal experience with my own spiritual battles. This artwork showcases just how powerful the act of praying and having devotion into God can be. Praying can release the power of God as it breaks the darkness and sets people free from their own battles. As I prayed in spirit for my church friends who suffered from covid side effects, I received a vision on my third day of fasting. The three holes and hands are a symbol of the evil things that come from the world. I had a vision that the devil tried to attract and capture young people and convinced them to turn away from God by using alcohol (left hole), pornography (middle hole) and games (right hole). Consequently, I praised God by saying “Hallelujah'' (הַלְלוּ יָהּ ), the power of God fell on a young man, drew out all his pain, and made him into a new person. This is how God helped me to understand the Bible verse Ephesians 6:10-20, for our struggle is not against flesh and blood, it is by praying in the spirit of God to release the power of God to set free people from illness, anxiety, depression and all the chains.
This painting is inspired by how I fight with my own daily life struggles but I am to get through it by God's mighty power and guidance inspired by the learning of Ephesians 6:10-20. Through the scripture, I’ve learned that as a child of God, my prayers have the full capacity to fight against evil and struggles in the spiritual realm.
Due to a covid outbreak in my church earlier this year, our pastor called for 3 days of fasting and prayer. On the third day of my fasting, I saw a vision while I was sleeping. There were 3 large holes with hands stretching out in front of me. I got caught by the left hole because it had music coming out. Inside the left hole, I saw a lot of young people dancing and drinking in a bar. When I came out of the bar, these 3 holes were in front of me again. So I ran away from these holes and started to praise God by saying “Hallelujah（הַלְלוּ יָהּ ）”. Then I saw a young man who crouched in the darkness able to stand up and the power of God surrounding him to drive out all his pain and change him into a new person.
When I woke up, the Lord helped me understand the vision. These 3 holes and hands are a symbol of the evil things that come from the world. As mentioned, the left hole represents bars and alcohol, the middle hole represents sexual immorality and pornography, and the right hole represents social media and games. The devil is using these things to distract us from the truth and ultimately have us stray away from God. However, when we keep our faith strong and hold on to the teachings of God, the power of God will be released in the heavenly realms and fall on us. The spirit of God can break all the curses of addiction and society’s various forms of sickness.

I'm interested in creating more prophetic artwork through the visions and revelations received from God. I hope my artwork can strengthen people's faith in God and bring more people to God.
