There’s Always More

“And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand. Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth.” Revelation 8:4,5
As I began to paint I sensed a prayer warrior and ‘saw’ the precious, almost untouchable, bowl of incense that represents the priests’ and saints’ intercessory prayers. The burning of incense is symbolic of our corporate prayer rising up to God. In Revelation we see the angels waiting for the bowl to be filled with prayer before sending the fire of God to earth.
I sense that the cry of your heart is for the ‘more’ of God, and you wait, as the angels wait, for the filling. I feel the Lord saying to you that there is always more, and that He is giving you ‘upgrade’. He is giving you upgrade in prayer, where you will be led by the joy of the Lord, and lead others into the life of the “Happy Intercessors”. Also upgrades in the natural world that are ‘overdue’.
Also coming is a spiritual acceleration, where you will see your praises open doors of grace. He is giving you increased spiritual insight, you will highlight where the Lord is even midst the deepest of problems and point to this for others to see. When you worship God to God, and praise God to others you will see heaven open and a power released; as when the bowls are filled in heaven, the power of God is released on earth.
The setting in the painting symbolises the Holy of Holies, filled with the heavenly host giving praise, saying ‘Holy, Holy, Holy’. Look for ‘threes’ in your natural world. In scripture you will see the governance of grace applied in threes (for example, “I am the one who was, and is, and is to come”.) When you see the Lord orchestrate happenings in threes, you will know that this is His plan, and He will provide the grace to accomplish what you have been interceding for. Far beyond favour, grace is His presence that empowers you to fulfil the task you are called to.
Giclee Reproductions are printed with a 3cm white border.
‘There’s Always More’ has been selected from the book 40 Days hath November to be reproduced as Giclee prints. Technically speaking, our prints are not prints at all, not in the common use of the term, but are fine art reproductions of original works. The quality is so high that it is difficult to tell between the reproduction and the original. Giclee Reproductions are premium high-resolution digital images produced on museum quality, Canson 300-320gsm Cotton Rag (fine cotton fibres woven into a paper-like product) printed with archival Canon Lucia EX 12-colour pigment high-performance inks. Canon Lucia EX pigment inks achieve an “under glass” permanence of 95 years for colour images.
Giclee can be confusing, as many may incorrectly assume that all digital printing is equal. Essentially Giclee (pronounced ‘zhee-clay’) is an invented name from the French word ‘le gicleur’ meaning ‘to squirt’. Originally coined in 1991 to distinguish between common digital prints and the highest quality form of art reproductions using wide-format inkjet printing technology. In 30 years, this technology has advanced enormously, giving an even wider distinction between Giclee reproductions and digital prints. However, we still use the word ‘print’ so that we are easily understood.
Fine Art Giclee Reproductions should be framed behind glass, using a matte to separate them from the glass. Consult your local framer for the best way to frame your reproduction and ensure your artwork still looks amazing for 3 – 4 generations.
