"THE CHRISTIAN HOPE"
The Christian Hope: “Dear God, please let the world end OUR WAY.”






In this painting the artist has caught the symbolism of Paul, as he describes an event which will precede the final consummation. It is the coming of Christ for his church. In this picture the artist has set forth in vivid fashion the Christian hope of the Lord’s return. We see the Lord breaking through from the spiritual world to the physical one.
Many extraordinary things take place at this time throughout the world. The artist has captured both material and spiritual incidents as they happen simultaneously.






Oh, and Happy WINTER SOLSTICE!
And Happy Beginning of a New World!
