LANTERN OF THE LORD Acrylic on Canvas 40 W x 30 H
A word from Barry and Ronelda Prophetic painting by Ronelda Nov 2016
"The LORD's light penetrates the human spirit, exposing every hidden motive." Proverbs 20:27 NLT This vision came as Ronelda and Barry were sleeping in there bedroom just as the morning was beginning to break. Barry awoke and heard a voice speak to him as clear as if one was sitting next to the bed. This voice seems to have come out of the room. Barry could not tell for sure if the voice was audible or from within, but there were clarity and distinction in the voice. Barry recognized and immediately knew it was the voice of The Lord Jesus. He ( Jesus ) said to him: TELL RONELDA TO PAINT ME GOING INTO THE HEART OF MY PEOPLE WITH A LANTERN. Barry said to himself, "What does that mean?" "What does that look like?" He then reached over to his wife Ronelda, who was asleep and laid his hands upon her head and prayed, "Whatever this looks like Lord, please give this to Ronelda." then he got up to go to the washroom when he began to hear his wife screaming, "I SEE IT! I SEE IT! I SEE IT!" This painting is of the vision as Ronelda saw it. We have found that many times when people look at these paintings, it will speak to them in a completely different way, and The Holy Spirit will personalize and Taylor it just for the individual beholder. We never want to limit how the interpreter of all scripture wants to unveil himself to a person. We genuinely believe this painting is what is taking place today in the body of Christ and the world. In the painting, it shows that The King is on the move as if a freight train was coming down the track and was heading straight into a dark mountain Tunnel. The Lord's glory is coming off of his garment like steam would come off a powerful locomotive. On the tracks are two railway spikes that are sticking straight up, both spikes are dripping with blood. The two spikes represent the finished work of the cross and the Lord Jesus' precious blood, which is the foundation and track that the church must stay on. The moon is blood red signifying the timing of this painting. Joel, chapter 2, verse 28 - 32, expresses His coming; the outpouring of His Spirit worldwide. Also, there is an urgency of preparation that the time is short. Profound changes are taking place in the earth and in verse 31 says, The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, BEFORE the great and the terrible day of the LORD, come. There are a set of keys which are hanging down from the side of Jesus. These keys represent the authority of the Lord Jesus coming to take over his church as the commander and chief. The Lord Jesus is going directly to the heart issues bringing his light to everything that is undone. The Lord is unraveling and healing his people's heart back to first love with himself. The tree seems to be lifeless, but the life giver is resolute and is heading straight into the heart of the tree to bring light to all the roots. Jesus going into the heart is such a beautiful picture of the Lord's love for the church that He Jesus is not willing to leave his church where it is, but He is now moving to remove all the disappointments and all the wounds that have laid hidden. Rev 3: 20 Behold I stand at the door and knock... The invitation has been given. There is a Lantern in his right hand that is shining light in front of Him and around Him. 2 Cor 4:6 says, For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. It is the face of Jesus; we must look to and seek. Let each of us seek his face to know him in an intimate, sacred relationship. Amen be glorified Lord Jesus in your people.
Thank you so much that we can share a little of our dreams, vision, and hearts with you. We pray that the Holy Spirit would come through these paintings and touch you and make his face shine upon you and reveal his way to you. Ronelda and Barry Neufeld
