THE DOVE;PROVISION AND PROTECTION: RECEIVE AND RELEASE;
THE DOVE Presence and Provision: Receive and Release “All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. “ John 14:25-27 Gods promise of presence and provision: drawing in, releasing and waiting…… and knowing He , “the Dove” could turn a fly at any moment…. This painting is about Holy Spirits Presence as well as His provision and sustenance. Years ago I raised white doves. I learned that they are one of the few birds that have "crop milk" for their young. The chicks hatch and then nestle up in their mothers’ chest feathers. There she has a type of milk called “crop milk” this is the chicks first nourishment. Holy Spirit was reminding me of this as I painted that Sunday. I KNOW this piece is about Holy Spirits presence and Gods provision! When I am painting during a worship service I am in constant conversation with the Holy Spirit about the canvas I’m working on. I know He has a plan for the piece and I want it to represent what I’m sensing is on His heart. This piece evolved differently than my other pieces I’ve painted with the Lord. This time He had me to lay in the colors and movement of the background by using my fingers to paint. Then I added a few brush strokes. As worship ended that day I sensed the Lord tell me to just sit down and just wait for what was to happen next on this piece. I had begun to see the movement of wings but just was not released to paint them at that time. I took the canvas back to my studio and began to ask the Lord about the next steps. I had seen a dove in the canvas the Sunday it was started, but was not released to paint it that day. I didn’t really understand why, but I wanted to be obedient to what I felt Him saying. As I sat in the studio studying the piece I looked at it and I began to see an image looking back towards me. It was a woman looking as if she was riding the back of this dove! I took my brush in hand and began pulling the wings out and then worked on the woman. Clearly she was sitting on His back and looking back over her shoulder to the viewer. As I painted I suddenly felt a shift inside of me. Sounds odd, but I knew the piece was about to make a big change. I stood back and asked the Holy Spirit for help I listened and watched for where I was to move next. It became very clear to me that The Dove was to painted now. I began to rough it in and then realized the woman I'd seen was now at the heart of this beautiful dove. The chest was very significant! It represents provision and protection, a breastplate of covenant colors! A spectrum of colors began to spill off my brush as if it were ALIVE! The wings receiving and releasing yet His tail feathers were like an anchor. They were pulling in, receiving and releasing all at the same time and yet He is still but could turn quickly! The piece is amazing me as I discover what all God is doing in what He has unfolded to me! I ADORE painting and journeying with Him !! I pray the Lord releases revelation of His heart as you take time to receive all that’s being released through this piece. That provision and protection surrounds you as you experience His presence. Enjoying His presence! ~~~ Jennifer Jones

Thunder of Freedom

"Thunder of Freedom"
24"x48" acrylic painting 














"Thunder of Freedom"
This is a painting that was birthed out of a time of praying into Zech 6:1-8, and Rev. 6 and 7 .
As I finished the piece and was asking the Lord for the name of this painting a word came on a email publication I receive and as I read it I realized it described what was on my heart as I painted. Below you will find this word from the Elijahlist.
"He will cause His voice of authority to be heard from the north to the south, to the east and to the west. And He will visit His people yet again. Prepare, the day is arriving; prepare the hour is upon thee; the travails and the birth pangs of this last season are coming to an end and the afterbirth is being taken off of you.

For God is making of you a new thing, and God is doing a new thing in the earth, and there will be a fresh cry of revival. There will be a fresh cry of renewal. There will be a fresh cry of restoration, and there will be a fresh cry of proclamation. And because of that, the saints will lift their voice in unabashed, unashamed praise--for the sound of praise will be greater than you have ever heard it in any other day in your life. The sound of thunder will not only be from Heaven, but there shall be a thunder come from the spirit of the saints, as they are set free."
