FOREWORD

I would like to share with everybody what I have discovered recently regarding the Holy Trinity of God.

I am not a theologian. I am an artist. I started my relationship with Jesus when I was eleven. I paint landscapes in the out of doors which helps me to feel and appreciate every detail made out of God's hands. This allowed me to be in communion with the creator hence praising Him while admiring His marvelous creation. My faith was increasing every day to a point that I felt compelled to share it with others. Not knowing how I could accomplish such a wish, I prayed to God seeking His guidance. After several years, God answered my prayers and asked me to use the talent that I was blessed with, to preach and spread His word through my paintings.

The mission which was entrusted to me was first limited to painting the life of Jesus Christ. Then it was expanded to paint Christ from eternity to end time.

THE STORY

It was a challenge indeed. I am used to paint what I see and here, I had to paint the unseen. But the real big challenge was to paint the creator from eternity. Thanks to God’s help and to His Holy Spirit’s inspirations and guidance, I was able to accomplish this unbelievable mission in 24 paintings. As part of this mission I was also inspired to write a book entitled “Christ from Eternity to End time”

When I wanted to paint Christ from eternity, I didn't know what to do. Guided by the Holy Spirit I reached a verse in John's Gospel which stimulated my inspiration.

John 1:18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.

This verse reminded me what I had read a long time ago in the Old Testament when Moses wanted to see God’s face and God’s response was that this is impossible. This is written in Exodus;

Exodus 33:18 Then Moses said, “I pray You, show me Your Glory!”
Exodus 33:20 But He (God) said,”You cannot see My face, for no man can see Me and live!”

Although I knew that God is invisible, It was, for me, a great discovery like an opened door to a hidden mystery.

The Bible doesn’t tell why God is invisible. May be because of His immensity! God is probably a huge concentration of spiritual energy like a sun from which heaven is permanently receiving Love through its heat and Wisdom through its light.

I was standing motionless in front of my large empty canvas, willing to paint the invisible God. Always inspired by the Holy Spirit, I imagined the firmament in Heaven with its spiritual lights coming out of soft fire as you can see in the image’s background above.

To paint Christ in God’s bosom, I was guided to read from the book of Proverbs the following two verses. It was for me like a message from Christ telling me what had happened at that time when He was begotten from God’s bosom.

Proverbs 8:22,23 The Lord brought Me forth as the first of His works, before His deeds of old; I was formed long ages ago, at the very beginning, when the world came to be.

While painting Christ in the bosom of God I felt very blessed to imagine the first appearance of Christ. I can't fully explain my emotions at that moment but I heard several times in my mind a voice saying “The Holy Trinity, the Holy Trinity. This is the explanation of God's Trinity.” And slowly, slowly every thing became clear to me. As if the mighty invisible God was revealing to me the birth of His Holy Trinity.

Yes, I said: Being invisible from eternity and knowing every thing, God also knows that He will create the Heaven with its angels and the earth with its humans. He knows that His creatures need to see Him in order to know Him, love Him and believe in Him. He knows that He must be visible, visit them, walk with them and establish His covenant with them. Yes, I said to myself: this must be it. God who can do every thing, can make Himself visible through His Word by revealing Himself in Christ the Lord who will be begotten from His bosom.

So I painted Christ coming out of the sky firmament's light with a message expressed by His hands. His left hand announcing God's Trinity, and His right hand holding His Sacred Heart expressing His infinite Love. The full expressed message is: “The Triune God Loves you.”

WHAT THIS REVELATION TELLS US

This painting of Christ in the bosom of the invisible God from eternity should reveal to us many things that I can summarize as follows:

1) Knowing God

No words can explain such a sophisticated subject better than a painting. Words are forgotten, images remain. It is very important to know our God. It is by knowing Him that we can love Him and by loving Him we will believe, trust and have faith in Him. Having faith in God is the key for our salvation and an open gate to His heavenly Kingdom where we will enjoy spending eternity with Him.

2) Understanding the Holy Scriptures

When I finished the painting and looked at it, I discovered answers and explanations to many verses regarding the Unity of God that I couldn't fully understand before. Here are some of these verses. You can experience it yourself by looking to the above painting for each verse you read:

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Colossians 1:15 He is the image of the invisible God.
John 14:7 If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also.
John 10: 30 I and the Father are one.
John 14:8-10 Philip said, Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us."Jesus answered-"Don't you know Me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say "Show us the Father?"

3) Christ is God

When Christ, the Word of God, was incarnated in Jesus Christ and became the Son of God, He was God as predicted by the prophet Isaiah:

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel (the hebrew word for "God is with us")

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spoke to them saying, "All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth."

4) The Holy Spirit is God

God's love is not limited to the fact that He revealed Himself to us through Jesus Christ. He also wanted to be present in each one of us. He wants us to share His Love and His Wisdom through His Holy Spirit who will be present in those faithful human hearts willing to have Him in them.

John 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.

5) The Unity of God

Our God is One God. The fact that He revealed Himself in Christ and, lives in our hearts through His Holy Spirit doesn’t alter His Holy Unity. This has been confirmed by Christ Himself in the Gospel of Mark:

Mark 12:29 Jesus answered him, "The first of all commandments is: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.

If Jesus considers that the most important thing for us to know is that our "Lord is one" we better believe it.

1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit, and these three are one.

6) The Holy Trinity of God

There is one God who is invisible. He revealed Himself, through His Word, in Christ who is begotten from His bosom. He is present in His the hearts of those faithful to Him through His Holy Spirit.

God, Christ and the Holy Spirit are three entities in one body. They act in total agreement and harmony with Each Other whether they are grouped together or temporarily separated.

EPILOGUE

This wonderful experience that I lived for some four years has enlightened my soul and allowed me to discover the Holy Trinity of God without any doubt or hidden mystery.

If God inspired me to paint and write about this important subject it is also for all those who are searching for the truth, the way and the life which are in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
