8 Reasons For Christian Home To Have Prophetic Art/Christian Art
1. Facilitation of God's Encounters
Through prophetic art, we, as an artists, capture God's kingdom down onto a piece of art in front of you, for you. This visual form ushers in the presence of God, bringing heaven to earth as we translate spiritually realm onto a canvas for your house. Mixing between the seen and the unseen.
2. Impartation from God
But again, whatever God has put in front of you, He will somehow make it plain for you to understand. In Romans 1:19, it says "They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them". The psalmist also describes nature as a language without words that has "gone out to all the earth." (Psalm 19:1-6). God expects us to understand that visual communication and holds us accountable for that message.
3. Prophetic message for your future from God
4. Declaration of God's promises
Displaying a Prophetic & Christian art piece in your home helps you to have the affirmation as you look at it daily. It brings the promises of God into the earth in tangible form right in your house.
I love displaying my art on my work desk wall (that's where i spend the most time) as it always draws me back to God's presence and reminds me of His love for me every single time, which is what I needed the most part of my life. God uses the particular art in each season and the emotion of the art piece to redirect my heart towards His truth and cling to His promises.
5. Remind yourself (and your family members)
Most importantly, it is a Biblical concept. In the book of Deuteronomy (Deuteronomy 6:6-9) right after Moses gives the greatest command to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and strength, he follows up by telling His people to write the commands on the door frames of their homes. This is so the commands of His truth will surround them and their children- literally right in front.
6. Fuel each other's conversations
7. Edify others
8. Beauty around where you eat, sleep, play and work.
Before I get started on Project Made New, I have been an interior designer myself hence I'm greatly immersed and attracted to beautiful interior. I love surrounding myself in a space of beauty. I feel it's about giving the space a story. A space is of huge influence to our psychology and emotions.
Even God Himself after each day of creation, He reflected on what He had made and evaluated it as good. At the end of the process, He declares it all to be very good. God made the beauties of creation because He enjoyed them (Psalm 104:30-31, Genesis 2:9). He made a beautiful place for us to live in and gave us the power to share His enjoyment of its beauty.
Having Prophetic art and Christian art in your home is an amazing way to beautify your interior spaces, but most importantly, it is about drawing God closer to you each and everyday. That each day you can build up an even intimate relationship with God and to lead you through your journey here on earth.
