I painted this piece during worship at the Lubbock International House of Prayer by Nic and Rachel Billman.
What I heard at the time was this:
In the revelation, glory brings gifts to the people below. Accept the gifts. The cloud of witnesses is cheering you on to your breakthrough and destiny.
What do you need?
Healing. Breakthrough. Provision. Destiny. Direction. Joy. Hope. Restoration. Acceptance. Identity. Transformation. And more…
What do you need?
It felt really powerful, and I invited the people in the audience to enter into the piece by writing what they were asking God for. Several did. I didn’t know any of them, so I can’t check back, but I wonder if they noticed any breakthrough.
Over the last few years, I’ve been struggling with adrenal fatigue. Partly this is because I pushed myself too hard amidst several stressful life events. As I’ve stated before, I’m learning to give myself grace. And this process has helped, because I’ve been forced to. I’ve learned a lot about myself that I believe will be very helpful from here on out.
But, they physical fatigue has lingered.
Until I brought this piece into my house.
Before, I was only able to work outside in the yard, which I enjoy, for 15-20 minutes without taking days to recover or getting sick. The day after the evening I brought the piece into the house, I was able to work 3 hours or so outside. That whole weekend, I think I worked 8 hours. Not all at once, but that’s a huge improvement from before.
It’s been several weeks and that breakthrough has been sustained.
Healing and energy is what I asked for.
I’ve been pursuing art as a carrier of healing and peace for some time. I figure that if the enemy can infect things for evil, why not the reverse? I don’t have many answers, I’m still asking a lot of questions. But this is the first piece where I’ve noticed a specific, measurable, sustainable result.
Is it transferrable?
I don’t know…
I would love to find out.
Would you like to help me?
The original is going to live at my house for the foreseeable future, but I believe that prints also carry the anointing for breakthrough – others have had such experiences, so why not my work as well?
So, if you’re interested in investigating this with me, I’ll make you this offer. You can purchase a 5×5 or 8×8 print at regular price. I’ll contact you in 1 month, and if you respond and let me know what, if anything, has happened, I’ll send you 1/3 the purchase price back to you. If you notice anything sooner, you can contact me then, and I’ll send you the cash.
This offer is good through June 8, 2019 (now closed). You should receive your print in 2-3 weeks (Continguous US) with instructions for reporting in. Once I have all the results compiled, I’ll report back here!
I heard from 6 out of 10 of the people who purchased a piece. I asked general questions such as how long they had the print and where they displayed it. I asked if they had a specific request and if they noted any breakthrough related to the request OR any other breakthrough that they had not asked for. I asked the general areas they noticed breakthrough.
For those of you who may not know about statistical analysis, survey participation is typically below 30%, so this level of response thrilled me. (Note, if you haven’t responded, the link is still live and should have come in an email around July 14th or so.)
I base the following percentages on the 60% response rate:
- 100% placed the piece where they would see it often: kitchen, bedroom, desk, etc.
- 100% had had the piece for 3-4 weeks
- 67% had a specific “ask” or request.
- 100% received breakthrough in the area of their “ask”.
- 83% received breakthrough in other areas besides their “ask”.
For the areas of breakthrough, almost all had at least 2 areas of breakthrough they experienced, so you’ll notice that the numbers below add up to more than 100%.
- 33% had physical breakthrough
- 67% had emotional breakthrough
- 50% had spiritual breakthrough
- 50% had breakthrough in other areas such as business, mental, writing, etc.
These results are very exciting! It shows, that as far as my small sample goes, that the healing anointing or properties or I’m-not-sure-what ARE transferrable to others via a print.
What does this mean?
It doesn’t mean that the print or painting is “magic” or that it is operating outside of God’s healing power. It’s not a “good luck” healing charm or anything like that. At the moment, my only explanation, is that it is a conduit of the healing power of the Lord – in the same way that the Bible tells us that “even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched [Paul] were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them.” Acts 19:12 NIV
So, the answer to my original question “Is the healing or breakthrough transferrable?” Is at least a “most likely so” if not “highly likely”.
And I feel like I just stepped down another rabbit hole…
One that I’ve asked for, but with unknown depths and consequences as yet.
And I would be lying if I didn’t admit to a little trepidation.
What do I do with this?
I don’t know right now. I have another painting that feels similar, and I’ll be painting more, but probably more slowly than typical until I understand a bit more. I’ve taken a deep dive and haven’t got my sea legs yet.
Watch this space.
