I stumbled on this illustration many years ago and fell in love with it, it is so beautiful and paints a wonderful picture of our Bible. I hope you enjoy it and that it is a blessing to you!
I entered through the portico of Genesis and walked down through the long, Old Testament art gallery, where I saw hanging on the walls, hundreds of paintings of such persons as Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Melchizedek and Methuselah, Abraham and Isaac, Jacob and Esau, Joseph and Benjamin, Moses and Aaron, Sampson and Delilah, Esther and Ruth, Daniel and Nebuchadnezzar. I stepped then into the music room of the Psalms, where every reed of God's great organ responded to the tuneful harp of David.
I walked then into the business office of the Proverbs, and the chamber of Ecclesiastes where the voice of the Preacher was heard, and into the conservatory of Sharon, where the lily of the valley's spices filled and perfumed my life.
Then I entered into the observation rooms of the prophets, where I saw telescopes of various sizes, some pointing to far-off events, but all centered upon the bright star which was to rise above the moonlit hills of Judea for our salvation.
Leaving the Old Testament, I then stepped into the correspondence rooms where sat Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Peter, Paul, James penning their epistles.
I stopped then in the Jerusalem Travel Agency, where I saw mission travel brochures, some with sailing dates and others with caravan schedules, but all with such First Century destinations Judea and Samaria, Corinth and Ephesus, Antioch and Cypress, Philippi and Thessalonica, Berea and Crete, Galatia and Malta, Athens and Rome.
Finally, I stepped into the throne room of Revelation where I caught a vision of the King sitting on His throne in all His glory, and I cried, "Let angels prostrate fall, bring forth the royal diadem, and crown Him Lord of all."
I am just an ordinary girl who is loved by an extraordinary God and I seek to love others the same way. I love to bake, read, do puzzles, watch Hallmark movies, and go shopping with my mom! This blog was created as a place where I could share some thoughts that the Lord has shown me and to be an encouragement to others who desire to know Him in a deeper way. My prayer is to learn to sit still and trust God with my future.
