This is the time, this is the season that God is saying to the prophetic artists, “I am reclaiming the arts and using them in ways you cannot imagine. I am sending you to infiltrate the marketplace, the institutions of higher learning, all the places where people deny My existence. This is the ministry that is of the Spirit, and thus it will give life. It will be a glorious ministry that brings righteousness! You are vessels of clay, but you carry this treasure, and all will know that this power is not from you but from God”.
Prophetic art is a work of art which reveals the Father's heart, His thoughts and intent, prophecies, strategies and timetable. The vehicle can be a painting done in oil, watercolor, pencil, pastels, ink, crayons, or a sculpture of clay or metal, a multimedia collage...the list goes on.
There is a difference between biblical art and prophetic art. Biblical art, in a general sense, depicts stories and people from the Bible. These art pieces are beautiful and inspirational. They bring understanding, appreciation and remembrance for what God did in biblical times for the purpose of bringing our hearts closer to Him.
In contrast, prophetic art is God giving us a now word. He is communicating now. He is sending a visual "word" which must be responded to now. Thus it comes with a sense of immediacy and urgency and timing. Usually it comes in through the eyes and hits the heart.
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God - which is your spiritual worship”. —Romans 12:1
