Symbolism  

The Illuminati (all-seeing eye) tattoo on Goliath's arm represents a secretive order. The descending dove (top right) represents the Holy Spirit upon King David. Some of the troops on David's side hold crosses instead of spears (symbolizing Christ's sacrificial death for mankind, and also that Christ came through David's bloodline). The four additional rocks in David's bag were meant for Goliath's other 4 giant brothers from Gath. (2 Sam 21:22) There is additional hidden code in this painting.

Commentary

"Then David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone; and he slung it and struck the Philistine in his forehead, so that the stone sank into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the earth. Therefore David ran and stood over the Philistine (Goliath), took his sword from the sheath and killed him, and cut off his head with it. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled." (1 Sam 17: 49,51)  This passage teaches the Lord does not save by conventional means, or even by sword, but rather He uses unconventional and sometimes seemingly strange means in order to accomplish His purposes. The Lord can use any helpless situation and transform it for our good, like he did in the case of King David. (Click image below twice to enlarge)

Family of four (fishing) and four white rabbits: Rabbits represent fertility and a family living a life of leisure oblivious to impending doom.

Commentary

"The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up." (Revelation: 8:7)  At creation, after God separated the waters from the land, He created plants and trees. They were the first to experience His judgement in the Book of Revelation, and will be destroyed in a tremendous fire. Most of humanity will be oblivious to the timing and reasoning of this pending calamity. (Click image below twice to enlarge)

Luke 4:39 (Top Half) Lighted globe encircling the Lord's hand symbolizing healing power. Eyes within the purple curtains seem to follow the viewer regardless of vantage point; symbolizing that God loves you so much He can't keep His eyes off you.  Christ's clothing is silver, gold and purple symbolizing royalty.

Mark 5:41 (Bottom Half) Yellow Dove in the right window symbolizing both peace and the Holy Spirit of Christ. Rainbow in the left window symbolizes hope. 

Commentary

Top Half - "And He arose and left the synagogue, and entered Simon's (Peter's) home. Now Simon's mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever; and they made request of Him on her behalf. And standing over her, He rebuked the fever, and it left her; and she immediately arose and waited on them." (Luke 4: 38-39) Jesus Christ never refused a sincere request for healing. This passage also teaches that the Apostle Peter (some say he was the 1st Pope) was married.

Bottom Half - "And one of the synagogue officials named Jairus came up, and upon seeing Him, fell at His feet, and entreated Him earnestly, saying "My little daughter is at the point of death; please come and lay Your hands on her, that she may get well and live. And taking the child by the hand, He said to her, 'Talitha kum!' (which translated means, 'little girl, I say to you, arise!'). And immediately the girl rose and began to walk; for she was twelve years old. And immediately they were completely astounded. (Mark 5: 22-23, 41) We see the power of our Lord and the difference He makes when He touches a person's life. Click image below twice to enlarge.

 

RAISING LAZARUS (Image Below)

Signed Original - 2015

Size & Materials

35 1/2" (H) x 23 1/2" (W) - Framed Behind Glass

Acrylic Paint on un-treated canvas

Style Used - Emotionalism

Symbolism 

Descending Dove in the top left area represents both peace and the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ. The 3 small Gray birds in the upper right section symbolize the Triune being of God. The 5 fish in the pond represent the first 5 books of the O.T. (The Pentateuch). The small vineyard toward the bottom right is best represented by Jesus' first sentence in John 15:5, i.e. "I am the Vine, you are the branches." He is clothed in gold and purple symbolizing royalty, but He also has silver around His neck, which symbolizes redemption. The 'bota' in Christ's hand represents His humanity, in that, He had thirst. There is hidden code in this painting.

Commentary

"Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, "Father, I thank You that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me." Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come forth!" And he who died came out bound hand and foot with grave clothes, and his face was wrapped with cloth. Jesus said to them, 'Loose him, and let him go.' " (John 11: 41-44)  Jesus boldly stepped up to prove to everyone present that He was the resurrection and the life. He laid it all on the line in one captured moment. If Lazarus didn't come to life, Jesus would be discredited. But Lazarus came out of the tomb proving that Christ was not only the God of the living, but also of the dead. Click image below twice to enlarge.

 

LAST CHANCE SUPPER (Image Below)

Size & Materials

23 1/2" (H) x 35 1/2" (W) - Framed Behind Glass

Oil & Acrylic Paint on treated canvas

Style Used - Emotionalism

Symbolism - There is hidden code within this painting.

Jesus Christ's clothing is gold and purple symbolizing royalty. His criss cross garments appears as a uniform, in particular, one of a leader/warrior. Descending Dove in the window symbolizing both peace and the Holy Spirit of Christ. Halo effect around Christ's head symbolizes glorious holiness. Judas is indicated in the dark grey robe ready to touch the door knob, but to his left is an apostle gesturing with a finger. On the table, there is a cross on a silver cup, which indicates the coming crucifixion of Jesus. Additionally there is a blue and gold goblet, which symbolizes a holy chalice (or holy grail). Incidentally, the "Holy Grail" is not in The Bible, but it is a wide spread belief that possessing the holy chalice that Christ drank wine from will bring instant healing, great power and eternal life.

Commentary

"Then Judas, who was betraying Him, answered and said, Rabbi, is it I? (who will betray you-implied)." He said to him, "You have said it." And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, "Take, eat; this is My body." Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you." (Matthew 26: 25-27) Jesus Christ being crucified was never an accident of falling into the cruel hands of Pontius Pilate. He deliberately allowed Judas Iscariot to betray Him so that he could die on the cross for the sins of mankind. This surreal representation of The Last Supper looks ahead to Christ's glorious reign over those who come to Him humbly believing and asking forgiveness for sin. This is because the Lord lived a sinless life and thus qualified Himself to be the bearer of our sins on the cross. (Click image twice below to enlarge)

HARSH JUSTICE (Image Below)

Signed Original - 2010

Size & Materials

21 1/2" (H) x 27 1/2" (W) - Framed

Acrylic & Oil Paint on treated canvas. Also vinyl, cloth lining, laminate/glue, plastic and wire.

Style Used - Emotionalism

Symbolism  

The black glove holding the faux gun represents the law and authority, while the scale and balances symbolize fairness and justice. The cross above the scale symbolizes that Christ Jesus is the ultimate judge over mankind. "1962" shown on one of the wine bottles is the year of the artist's birth.

Commentary

"Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgement on themselves." (Romans 13:2) Submit yourselves for the Lord's sake to every human institution, whether to king as the one in authority, or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evil-doers and the praise of those who do right." (1 Peter 2: 13-14). Although this painting is an extremely harsh and unrealistic representation of what could happen to a no-smoking rule breaker, it is a wakeup call for those who always seem to find a way to break the rules, and justify their actions. If people want to rebel against rules set in place by God (or the God appointed authorities that set the rules), then they may do so at their own jeopardy. Our role is to accept whatever leadership God puts over us, realizing He is in ultimate control and has a purpose in mind. Christians in particular, are to be law-abiding citizens. If the governmental law violates the written law of God, then the believer should obey God, ...though he (or she) may have to suffer the penalties of governmental law.  (Click image below twice to enlarge)

The cross atop the partial structure on the right side symbolizes a portion of a Spanish Mission building. There are two dove (descending and in flight) symbolizing peace, hope and God's H.S. The eyes found in the bottom right section follow the viewer regardless of vantage point and so do the eyes of the Lord. Elements of the Italian culture are found throughout (e.g., colors and flag). Two corvettes (bottom right) symbolize man's (and woman's) fruitless hunger for entertainment and recognition. In the bottom left, the man with the gun and hat (the beast) is shown assassinating God's two witnesses/prophets with on-lookers celebrating with drinks (see commentary for symbolism). 

Commentary

"And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days, clothed in sack-cloth." "And if anyone wants to harm them, fire flows out of their mouth and devours their enemies; so if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this way." "When they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up out of the abyss will make war with them, and overcome them and kill them." "And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them and celebrate; and they will send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth." (Revelation 11: 3, 5, 7 & 10) The "beast" is also the Antichrist (aka "man of lawlessness"). In Rev 11:9, we see the peoples' hearts are so corrupt they will refuse burial of the corpses for 3 1/2 days as they celebrate. Much to their horror, as God breathes life into the corpses in verses 11-12, the prophets are called to ascend into heaven. I imagine this will be seen world-wide via cable TV; and the Christ rejecting world (just after their celebration) will be overcome by great fear. In the opinion of many bible scholars, the true believers (versus the fake ones) in Christ Jesus will be removed from the earth at this point via the "rapture." If this be true, as a Bible believer, what manner of life should you now be living?  (Click image below twice to enlarge)

The two fish in the river are a symbol for Jesus Christ (see Christophany under commentary). The three figures on the bridge are a surreal representation of the artist and his two young sons in the late 90s. The purple robe of Daniel represents the royal cape given to him by the Babylonian King Belshazzar toward the end of Chapter 5. The seven red trunked trees symbolize the biblical number of completeness.  

Commentary

"I did not eat any tasty food, nor did meat or wine enter my mouth, nor did I use ointment at all until three weeks were completed. On the 24th day fo the first month, while I was on the bank of the great river, that is the Tigris, I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, there was a certain man dressed in linen, whose waist was girded with a belt of pure gold of Uphaz. His body was like beryl (topaz), his face had the appearance of lightening, his eyes were like flaming torches, his arms and feet like the gleam of polished bronze, and the sound of his words like the sound of a tumult." (Daniel 10:3-6) Many bible scholars believe this Glorious Man is a Christophany, or old testament appearance of Christ Jesus. At his point in the book of Daniel, he is aged at approximately his mid-80s. Because he had the diligence to fast and pray for three weeks, God gave him the reward of suddenly seeing a glorious body of a man on the opposite shore of the river. If you read the Apostle John's vision in Rev. 1:13-15, the visions seem to mimic each other. Daniel's reaction was the same as others in the bible that see a vision of God's holiness or glory, in that they fall directly on their face to the ground. (Click image below to enlarge)

DESTROYER SAMSON (Image Below)

Signed Original - 2016

Size & Materials

35 1/2" (H) x 23 1/2" (W) - Framed behind glass

Acrylic & Oil Paint on treated canvas. 

Style Used - Emotionalism

Symbolism  - Hidden code exists within this painting.

The jeweled royal cross symbolizes the King of Kings (Jesus) and his suffering for mankind. The copper colored descending dove is a symbol of Christ's Spirit and of peace, and the aquamarine fish is an additional symbol representing Christianity. The large "V" (bottom center) represents Samson's "victory" over the Philistines. The crushed people [and those about to experience the pain of being crushed by Samson's power] are symbols of those that mock God's people while calling good "evil" and evil "good." The heavenly luminous light shining upon Samson represents the infilling of holy strength, and is in the form of another "V" symmetrically positioned over the lower "V." Additionally, the luminous chains binding Samson's hands and feet appear as if they too are charged with heavenly energy.

Commentary

"Then Samson called to the LORD and said, 'O Lord GOD, please remember me and please strengthen me just this time, O God, that I may at once be avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes.' And Samson grasped the two middle pillars on which the house rested, and braced himself against them, the one with his right hand and the other with his left. And Samson said, 'Let me die with the Philistines!' And he bent with all his might so that the house fell on the lords and all the people who were in it. So the dead whom he killed at his death were more than those whom he killed in his life." (Judges 16: 28-30). The temple that Samson destroyed was also called the "House (or temple) of Dagon." The Philistines were a sea people so its not surprising that Dagon was a fish god. In verse 30, we know that he killed more than 2,060 people because in Judges 14:19 & 15:16 it is recorded that he killed 1,030. Samson's life is an example of contrasts in greatness and failure. He exemplifies those who, though greatly endowed by God, fail to use His gifts for ministry or to bless others. Though Samson won and failed greatly (to both extents), he still is recorded in Hebrews 11:32 as part of the list of biblical heroes of faith. Physically, there was no man stronger. Mentally, he was sharp and alert. Spiritually, we know that he started off very admirable, in that, he was one of the two men in the Old Testament whose birth and life mission was foretold by angels. Through the life of Samson the Destroyer, God warns us to spend our days in goodness and cleanness; so as to not repeat this mighty man's mistakes.  (Click image below twice to enlarge)
