The Mark of a True Artist

Did you know that one of the definitions of a true artist is that everything he or she touches has their mark! No matter what the medium, what is created, it all bears the signature style of the artist. I am so amazed like a veil lifted when God shows Himself coexistant with nature, His creation…I sometimes think now “why did I not see that before.” I was not paying attention. God gave me these two scriptures as confirmation.

For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. Romans 1:20

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. Colossians 1:15 - 20

God's signature is everywhere, and it all points to Christ and the glory of the Godhead....
  • the healing power of light – the discoveries and use of lasers in medicine
  • fruit requirements to grow abundantly– seeds, pruning, manure (stinky situations), light, water, good loose soil - same needs that we require to "bear fruit"
  • the sun when it comes to earth is always red (due to dust and moisture, etc in the lower atmosphere) and it is shining brightest when overhead (cleanest atmosphere) - He came from heaven to earth to show the way...Christ's blood required to cover our sins
  • Keeping an eternal perspective..a view from the mountain where we see the valleys and can see the little clouds are only over small patches and we get the big picture
  • The sun when shining on an object- if the object is facing the sun in bright light it becomes washed out completely of its own color and is the color of the light (most clearly seen in a setting sun if the object is white – it is the color of the light – blood red!!) (David said -"wash me whiter than snow")
  • Only the trees that are lit by the sun cast a shadow! Those in the darkness have no shadow. -We only walk through the valley of the shadow of death when we are lit with Christ’s light
  • God tells us to be like a tree (Psalm 1) which means having roots underground – deep inside, having many branches or arms for showing love and bearing fruit, getting thinner as we get taller, more of him and less of me
  • A tree with the trunk divided in two parts down low will split (you can not be a servant of two masters.)
The list goes on and on and on forever. He is revealed everywhere in every system and every situation for those who love Christ. I go around asking God to please show me how this reveals Christ and your nature. Everything was created through Christ by God with the breath of the Spirit. It all reflects the creator and has His stamp. We are so blessed.
