Thou also, son of man, take thee a tile, and lay it before thee, and pourtray upon it the city, even Jerusalem:
I love it, as an artist, that there were Anointed artists in The Word Of God. One of these was the Prophet Ezekiel. Whether he ever drew, before or after this is up for debate, but I personally believe God had given him this talent. Drawing, and painting, has become a part of my Ministry, and it’s something I fell in love with as a child.
God equips is with skills, talents, and desires before He ever asks us to use them for The Kingdom. In this case, Ezekiel drew as a witness against, and to Israel and Judah. God was telling them that there would be punishment for sin, but that punishment would only be for a certain period of time.
In the painting you’ll notice, one side is light, and the other is dark. In this case, Israel and Judah, represented by two men, are in darkness. While Ezekiel is facing the sunset. God was calling them from darkness to The Light. He is doing the same today.
Ezekiel is in more regal clothing. He represents more than just himself. Ezekiel represents hope. There will be strugggles, but there will be provision, Light, and victory after the battle!
