Christian art is a sacred and special art, which uses different themes, as well as images from Christianity. In Christian paintings the kingdom of Heaven meets the culture. It’s actually the point where the artists have the unique and most amazing opportunity, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to be able to translate the Kingdom of Heaven into a language that can be understood by anyone in the most unique way. More specifically, it’s a language that bypasses words or even phrases and goes directly into the human spirit. When people being able to collaborate with the Holy Spirit, it’s the power of God and His Light that merge with people’s faith, as well as desires and creative thoughts.
Whether the art is abstract, impressionist, realistic or anything in between, it’s inspiring to see God being glorified in an amazing collection of art paintings. More specifically, Christian and prophetic art uses images of Jesus, as well as narrative scenes from His Life, which in fact are of the usual subjects and scenes from the Old Testament, which also play an important part in Christian art. Moreover, religious art depicts also biblical themes, such as art abounds, especially from earlier centuries. It also depicts images of the Virgin Mary and the saints, but these ones are more rare. In most of these Christian, as well as prophetic paintings, artists share Jesus in a unique way, by using his God-given abilities to ‘spread the gospel with paint’ among people. In fact, His amazing testimony help people to find their purpose of life in Christ and at the same time to be able to overcome any kind of weaknesses. More specifically, the early Christian paintings were actually wall frescoes of the well-known Catacombs in Rome. The earliest Christian works tend to employ symbols of Christianity, such as wine, bread or the fish symbolizing Jesus.
Each piece of Christian art gives the opportunity to believers to allow the Father to flow through them, through the Holy Spirit, and touch their souls and therefore their lives. In fact, this process releases the testimony of Jesus through Christian art – who Jesus is, His presence, Glory, grace and what he has done for people. Literally, it releases the Spirit of Prophecy of the Breath of God (Wind), imparting life to the one interacting with people’s creative expression. Inspiring, heartwarming and true, Christian art often in history was what the church declared officially to be religious art.
