JESUS CHRIST

The painting by Sallman, above on the left, hangs in the big, white Methodist Church in Caretta, West Virginia to this day. I remember it well. I went to church there, as a child. It is an icon in my memory. Matthew 6:34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. The picture on the right is also a very popular painting found in many churches. Matthew 24:33 So also, when you see all these things, you know that He is near, right at the door.

THE FOUR HORSEMEN
of the Apocalypse
drawing by Durer
The painting of the left is a depiction of Ezekiel's Vision. Ezekiel 1:10 As for the likeness of their faces, each had the face of a man; each of the four had the face of a lion on the right side, each of the four had the face of an ox on the left side, and each of the four had the face of an eagle. 11 Thus were their faces. Their wings stretched upward; two wings of each one touched one another, and two covered their bodies. 12 And each one went straight forward; they went wherever the spirit wanted to go, and they did not turn when they went. The picture on the right, by Durer, is a drawing of The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse done in pencil.Revelation 6:1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.Revelations 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

Balaam is on his way to see Balak
But, the donkey sees an angel
That saved his life.
The Madonna
by Raphael
Christ as a child
Balaam refused to speak what God did not speak and would not curse the Israelites, even though King Balak of Moab offered him money to do so (Numbers 2224). But Balaam's error and the source of his wickedness came from sabotaging the Israelites as they entered the Promised Land. The painting on the right is done by Raphael, The Madonna and Child Jesus.
