Revealed by ForestHymn Revealed by ForestHymn
At the cross of Calvary, the character of God is revealed in Jesus
and the character of Satan is unmasked:


:bulletyellow: "It was the marvel of all the universe that Christ should humble Himself to save fallen man.
When Christ came to our world in the form of humanity, all were intensely interested in
following Him as He traversed the blood-stained path from the manger to Calvary. Heaven
marked the insult and mockery that He received and knew that it was at Satan’s instigation.
They watched the battle between light and darkness as it waxed stronger. And as Christ
upon the cross cried out, “It is finished!” a shout of triumph rang through every world and
through heaven itself. The great contest was now decided, and Christ was conqueror. His
death answered the question whether the Father and the Son had sufficient love for man
to exercise self-denial and a spirit of sacrifice. Satan had revealed his true character as a liar
and murderer. With one voice the loyal universe united in extolling the divine administration."

-Patriarchs and Prophets

:bulletyellow: "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, counted
it not a thing to be grasped to be on equality with God, but emptied Himself, taking the
form of a servant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a
man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the
cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above
every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of
those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that
Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

-Philippians 2:5-11

:bulletyellow: "...choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve..."
-Joshua 24:15

Well, I'm siding with the time-displaced Spinosauroid, here wrongly claimed to be a Dragon.

Ok. Definitely a symbolic painting though, not to be taken literally.
Sure, the bible calls large reptilian animals as dragons, so I thought it was appropriate.

Well, one can expect thing in there to be greatly exaggerated.  Also recyvled from earlier cultures.

I would respectfully disagree. But I know our modern culture rolls all things with a hint of "religion" into a single clump, and that there is a lot of prejudice.
It's hard for people to look at the bible without already having a prejudice in the way. No thanks to a lot of bad examples of "religious people" out there too.

But for those who have an open mind, the Bible is full of intellectual material, way ahead of the times it was written.

The dragon shall devour the lamb; it is only natural. c; But! This is a beautiful picture, regardless of the religious theme. Awesome job on it! I love your style of shading and how you did the scales on the dragon.

Thanks friend!
It is definitely a symbol, not literally, but I'm
glad you like how the rendering turned out!
I looked at a spinosaurus reconstruction for the scale details! :D
Regardless of the symbol in this particular piece, I love the look of reptiles : )

Ok, it's ready to print. However, the ebay shop is not set up yet-
Did you still want a print? Let me know.
If not, that's ok- I'm hoping to set up the print shop after working on a current commission.
Meanwhile, I'm sending out prints to specific people who wanted one : )

Yes... God works in simple things..
I can't imagine the fury of satan realizing his kingdom was lost, as Jesus breathed His last,
but remained unconquered by sin! The death of Christ was Satan's death knell. It was all over for him.

"Satan shall never overcome us, we shall overcome him. Jesus stood up against him, and now it's out turn."

The dragon, the devil, had seven heads, each with ten horns. And on each of those ten horns are ten crowns, and written on every seven head is the nameof blasphemy.

Very inspirational artwork.
