December 25, 2019 ~ The Trinity
Story @ Revelation 1:1-8
“Harmony  in Flesh Colour and Red.” an original oil painting from 1869, expresses Merry Christmas! Here is the presence of the Lord, in association with the feminine side. Here I get to see the untainted bright side in all it’s glory in plain language. There is light and life coming out of the Lord’s mouth on every word he speaks, perhaps speaking creation into existence. The balcony separates heaven above, overlooking the sun and other planets. The open composition vertically suggests the everlasting existence, while the closed composition horizontally represents intimacy. The Trinity is three ways of describing one team, wearing the same royal clothing. The color red represents what Jesus has done: “He loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood,  “ (Revelation 1:5b KJV)
