This painting has an intricate and profound timeline and themes associated with it. A ten year completion cycle, a prophetic swirl, with several cool puzzle pieces that came together. I’m going to do my best to tell this story in the thread following. Gathering thoughts, brb.
“Surely the day is coming; it will burn like a furnace... “ says the Lord Almighty. “Not a root or a branch will be left to them. But for you who #REVERE My name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in its rays... ” Malachi 4:1-2
Here is the bravest thing I ever wrote on Twitter. If you understand this, then you will understand me. Five years ago I was dancing with modern, contemporary and ballet companies in KC & LA. I had internal injuries where I can no longer even walk 1-2 miles without major probs.
I want to still dance. Like push through all physical pain and the symptoms. Have maybe one last season of burst of dance. But maybe it’s not possible, maybe it is. Maybe I will just paint & write now. But I know that whatever I do, I want to use all my MIGHT, I want to WORSHIP.
And if I can’t dance, I can pray that others will. And I can pray the not just in the area of worship, but just in every area, we can all keep fighting the good fight. That’s all I want. I simply just want to use all my strength to inspire others to walk in His beauty. That’s it.
I want to mention one other thing. I became a Christian at age 11 against all odds, it was my great-grandmother who modeled something true to me in a tumultuous time in my young life as a child. And shortly afterwards, God set a lot of wild things into motion for me. Such as...
...a mission trip to Atlanta, Georgia during the Olympics. How that marked me, was that our training days were in an actual airplane hanger FULL of young Christians from many nations. We would have worship in many languages. I remember a Samoan team of fire dancers etc...
...and a team from India. Every different team led worship in their own language and the whole airplane hanger full of people from around the globe joined together in these songs from many cultures, in our shared love of God. We then spent six weeks on the streets of Atlanta...
1.) Guys, there’s a subject that I’m DEEPLY passionate about, that I’ve been writing a book on, behind the scenes for two years. It’s the very center of the assignment & message I feel called to be a part of, as a clarion call. I want to help champion & RALLY artists & musicians.
2.) Antiphonal Worship is when two or more groups call out to each other back and forth, thus causing a building and a crescendo of worship.
3.) Antiphonal worship was the very first model used by David, in the tabernacle.
🎨 I entered an art contest where paintings will be featured on billboards in LA Sep to Nov. I did this purposefully to put something positive out to LA, which is in a negative time. To “Speak Life” per se. The contest was free & there’s not a $ prize. I did this for art’s sake.
Each participant may enter three paintings. To progress to become a finalist, the painting must receive at least 250 “votes.”
If you would like to check these out and give your free “vote” to help me possibly put something beautiful out to Los Angeles, see below.
Here are my three submissions. Voting is free, and your vote helps me progress to a finalist round.
By popular demand, an actual LINK & methodology to order prints or canvases, of the “American Spirit” eagle painting, with 100% of my direct profits fundraising towards the Michael T. Flynn Legal Defense Fund in support of @GenFlynn legal battle. More details in comments below.
@GenFlynn@BarbaraRedgate@JosephJFlynn1@GoJackFlynn I am only six months into trying to be a full time artist, and I don’t have a shop function on my own website yet. So I am using a high quality vendor that ships directly to you. It also gives you the ability to pick size and format.
“We will see, throughout the coverage of this sordid affair, a conscious effort to conflate Erdogan and Turkey, and to suggest that stating that Turkey is an ally is somehow an expression of support for Erdogan. It is a gross fallacy...”
Mr. Erdogan is not Turkey, much as personality cultists would like it to be. He is a corrupt Islamist who leads a movement that aims at "fundamentally transforming" Turkey into collectivist theocracy. Gülen's Islamist movement, Hizmet...
which has been instrumental in Erdogan's ability to get this far.
I’ve been very unsure about this decision, but I think at the end of the day, it’s too special not to share. Back in the spring, @GoJackFlynn a wonderful patriot & a devoted brother to @GenFlynn (his wife Lori) asked me offline about commissioning surf paintings for his brother.
Needless to say, it was an honor of a lifetime. And in the process I got to see and experience the incredible way the Flynn family champions each other and all the people they bring into their lives.
What was very unusual, was that I had actually had a very profound dream on exactly 02.02.2002, that had deeply impacted me for the last 17 years. In the dream I turned into an eagle and was encouraging a “Brave Surfer.”
A 🔑 point: The govt prosecutors now trying to retaliate towards Flynn w/ new defamatory & harmful pivots in EDVA case, due to prosecution not happy w/ direct answers from Flynn in testimony he gave. They don’t like truth, because there’s nothing in it to trip him up w/ them...
This is a key point for public dialogue becauses the recent pivots by prosecution in this EDVA are twofold; a) an attempt to undermine & impune perception of @GenFlynn ‘s character in court of public opinion...
@GenFlynn and b) to try to further poison Judge Sullivan’s position or need for stronger sentencing or stronger optics in General Flynn’s own case he is still awaiting sentencing for. Not benign motives by prosecution at all. Weaponized judicial.
If our own @realDonaldTrump tweets out this vid (standing in solidarity) w/ the update that the judge corrected the bs that was tried to be pulled recently against @GenFlynn, you can infer; YES he stands w/ our General. 🇺🇸
Flynn will NOT be named co-conspirator with his ex-business partner. As the court had ALREADY established he was NOT one. But court tried to pull misconduct. But the judge squashed it. And the President tweeted about it. That’s definitely a good sign.
“The prosecutors have been adamant that Mr. Flynn testify that he authorized the filing of the FARA form knowing and intending that it contained false statements,” the defense filing states. “Mr. Flynn cannot give that testimony because it is NOT true.”
1.) Ok, here’s a few more examples of how we know #JesusisGod (other than Him fulfilling over 400+ Messianic prophecies that we’re recorded hundreds of years before His birth, and would be statistically impossible for one human to fulfill ALL to the t, but Jesus did.)
2.) Psalm 110, was a documentation of an actual visual encounter that King David had where he viewed “The Lord at the Right hand of God” and he (David) saw God call the Lord (Jesus) “My God.” Pretty incredible! An OT peak at Jesus! But thennnn....
3.) Paul writes about same scripture (Psalm 110...) (Paul, who was at first Saul, & was a devout Jew who KILLED Christians) had a blinding light encounter w/ Ressurected Jesus, Himself, so he went & studied the OT scriptures for 14 years to make sure he understood, then he said:
And here, we see John the Baptist knew the distinction, that Jesus ALONE is God, & is alone, GOOD.
1.) The One who HAS the BRIDE IS THE BRIDEGROOM. The friend of the bridegroom, (John he Baptist) who stands & hears Him, rejoices greatly at the Bridegroom’s voice. ...John 3
2.) John the Baptist, called himself a forerunner who prepared the way for the True Messiah. In telling his disciples that he was not the Bridegroom, that Jesus was, He was calling Jesus God because he was pointing them back to this OT understanding of God as the Bridegroom:
3.) Example of God (Father) referring to Himself as Bridegroom:
“I will betroth you to Me forever;
Yes, I will betroth you to Me in righteousness and in justice, In lovingkindness and in compassion...” Hosea 2:19
1.) Here we see Peter (who denied being a disciple at the Cross, out of fear, due to his faulty foundation of a humanistic understanding) but here we see Peter AFTER the resurrection of Jesus, FULL OF FAITH as an EYE-WITNESS of majesty, who testifies to 3k of deity of Christ...
2.) (Context) the morning of Pentecost, after resurrection, Peter preaches to 3k fellow Jews:
General Flynn truly called out the truth. So much to be gleaned from this clip, including the way the reporter panics and interrupts him. Can’t wait until @GenFlynn can speak freely again!
One of the main reasons I posted this clip, was in the context of the released testimonies that @RepDougCollins released yesterday, including that of LL, McCabe & others. The origins of the spying now point back to where this all began. HRC email scandal. And the Weiner laptop.
Read through the Loretta Lynn testimony and you will clearly discern (although she tries to dance around it) that FISA warrants & the spying were against “Four Americans” connected to Trump, including @GenFlynn. HRC email scandal was one of biggest layers of context at that time.
I’m on page 138 of 191 LL testimony. It’s so much BS I literally can’t muster the words to tweet about the BS.
2/3: I’m at the point now where she keeps ademently denying ever even being told about Crossfire Hurricane, even though she admits she met 3x weekly with top FBI leadership and they had officially opened Crossfire Hurricane on July 31, 2016 within FBI rank and file.
3/3: She also gaslights any mention of “Trump Campaign” being “investigated” at all, to her knowledge.
