>The process of this painting has been recorded in this YouTube video: :bulletorange: Behold, I Come Quickly!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to
give to every one according to his work. I am the Alpha and the
Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”
Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may
have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the
gates into the city." (Revelation 22:12-14)
This picture is about the return of Jesus to Earth, to pick up His
children and take them home. The symbols in this picture mean:

:bulletyellow: The lion: represents God's justice and wrath against
sin, that will destroy the lost at His return. Yet the lion is crying,
because though He hates sin, God loves each one of His creatures
more than Himself- evidenced at the cross. Even the destruction of
the lost is an act of love. How so? The lost wouldn't stand to live
in the presence of God's love, or enjoy the selfless attitude of God's
creatures. It would be torture for them. If God allowed the lost to
continue living and causing each other, and themselves pain, He
wouldn't be a God of love.

"‘As I live,’ says the Lord God, ‘I have no pleasure in the death of
the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn,
turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of
Israel?" (Ezekiel 33:11)

"...How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen
gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!"
(Matthew 23:37)

:bulletyellow: The Lamb: Represents Gods mercy and salvation- in
the midst of confusion about the character of God, the Lamb- Jesus
Christ- reveals that God's character is that of self-sacrificing love.
He offers salvation and life with Him for Eternity in a perfect

"Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and
death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all
sinned" (Romans 5:12)

"In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and
sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins." (1 John 4:10)

"“Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!"
(John 1:29)

:bulletyellow: The Ten Commandments: the law of God reveals His
own character, and the order by which He governs the universe.
Because God's government cannot be removed, so the Ten
Commandments cannot be removed or changed.
The word "commandments" in Hebrew is more related to "Promises."
The Commandments are God's Ten Promises showing what you will be like!

God will transform you into His image (His character) - the Holy Spirit's
guidance, and the study of the Bible will so mold your character that
you will become like Jesus- who kept the Ten Commandments.

This process is referred to as "sanctification" or
"setting apart for a holy use." It is the process of a lifetime.
Every day, you can grow more and more, by keeping your focus on Christ, imitating
Him, and not looking to yourself or others for approval.
It may seem impossible to our human mind, but Jesus promised to "finish the work"
He started in you! And Jesus can't lie.
He needs to do this in all His children, so they are ready for Heaven.
Of course we can't keep the law to be saved - that is an impossibility, (for all have failed at it!)
We are saved through Jesus. Yet His salvation is not a veil for sin! He has power to transform!
He will fulfill His promise and come back for a church "without spot or wrinkle" (Ephesians 5:27)
and take His children home to a perfect universe- where selfless love
is the governing principle of all life!

"...He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until
the day of Christ Jesus." (Philippians 1:6)

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold,
all things have become new." (2 Corinthians 5:17)

"The time is coming," declares the LORD,
"when I will make a new covenant
with the house of Israel
and with the house of Judah...
"I will put my law in their minds
and write it on their hearts.
I will be their God,
and they will be my people."
(Jeremiah 31:31-33)


“ Come out from among them
And be separate, says the Lord.
Do not touch what is unclean,
And I will receive you.”
“ I will be a Father to you,
And you shall be My sons and daughters,
Says the LORD Almighty.” (2 Corinthians 6:17-18)

"But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed
into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord."
(2 Corinthians 3:18)

"If you love Me, you will keep My commandments." (John 14:15)
"He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His
commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him." (1 John 2:4)

"Moreover I also gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign between them and Me, that they might know
that I am the LORD who sanctifies them." (Ezekiel 20:12)

"Keep My Sabbaths holy, and they will be a sign between Me and you,
that you may know that I am the LORD your God.’ (Ezekiel 20:20)

:bulletyellow: The three angels: The Three Angel's Message >>> Christ Our Righteousness

:bulletyellow: The trumpet and the sickle: Jesus says He will resurrect
the dead saved when He returns. The sickle means He will come to "reap"
the Earth- and separate the "wheat" from the "weeds" (which show their true
nature when they are fully grown)

"For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of
an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise
first." (1 Thessalonians 4:16)

"Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say
to the reapers, “First gather together the tares [weeds] and bind them in
bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”’ (Matthew 13:30)

"And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who
sat on the cloud, “Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You
to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” So He who sat on the cloud thrust
in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped." (Revelation 14:15-16)

Amen. When He comes, God's justice will be swift.
To all, be aware, The Lord will return soon. Jesus Christ will come like a thief in the night and it is not known of the hour or day of His return, so be aware. Beware!
