The Blindness of Disobedience Isaiah 29:9 Pause and wonder! Blind yourselves and be blind! They are drunk, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with intoxicating drink. 10 For the Lord has poured out on you the spirit of deep sleep, and has closed your eyes, namely, the prophets; and He has covered your heads, namely, the seers. 11 The whole vision has become to you like the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one who is literate, saying, “Read this, please.” And he says, “I cannot, for it is sealed.” 12 Then the book is delivered to one who is illiterate, saying, “Read this, please.” And he says, “I am not literate.” 13 Therefore the Lord said: “Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths and honor Me with their lips, but have removed their hearts far from Me, and their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men,

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.

Carpe Diem (seize the day–while it lasts!)

Artist: Larry James

Title: Carpe Diem
Media: Collage consisting of acrylic paint, laminates, textured paper, a brilliant streak of madness, glitter, etc

Synopsis: Man, created in the image of God, sinned against his Maker by eating the forbidden fruit. All of God’s plan to redeem mankind from the scourge of sin pointed to Christ Jesus and his complete work of salvation through His crucifixion, death and resurrection. Man, on the whole, has however rejected the Messiah which is altogether antichrist¾captured by the peace symbol of the 1970’s. So ‘carpe Diem’ or seize the day¾while it lasts! Should one convey a literal approach to eschatology, the day is coming when the Lord will unleash His judgments upon an unsuspecting world enmeshed in sin. The four horsemen with Hades in tow shall sift a generation that will eventually ‘separate the sheep from the goats.’ Why the Maserati logo hints at the fact that the end times shall witness a revived Roman empire. There will be blood and some will burn!

Descend ye horses from heaven’s gate and sift the world asunder till Armageddon’s wake! ~ L.J
