7 hidden images discovered reveals Jesus is God and man is true

Galatians 1:3 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
Galatians 1:4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

Greeting friends, please enjoy Paths toward God by faith, a web site developed to share the (good news) Gospel of Jesus Christ as God and man to be true. Not religion or a fable, fiction or tale. Only God’s truth is proclaimed by this simple art work named Paths towards God by faith; that because of the many images revealed in the drawing that were not placed there intentionally by me the artist. But now has been revealed within the drawing by others, I began my ministry by art. This is my testimony of the drawing's development. I became a new believer born again Christian at the age of 22. About 8 years later I looked around my home with a desire to draw my own image of Jesus Christ. Realizing I had no image of God or any art work to proclaim Him. Often as a child I would draw and I haven’t since high school, but I felt I was able to since it was for my own home and pleasure and not for public view.

To me God is alive above the cross powerful and mighty. Alive next to me in me guiding me, my friend and Father. I wanted all who enter my home to know He is not dead or beaten upon a cross but is alive victorious above it. So with a newly purchase 14x17 drawing pad I began drawing, desiring the drawing to be much like a map.

This is a brief description of the drawing: on how it was meant to be read as a map that points the way to heaven and the way to escape hell. That all the world's major faiths are seen. With Jesus Christ above, calling all men of faith to follow Him and believe. All of man kind begins symbolized where Adam is seen praying. Every man takes a path of faith and of choice beginning at our age of accountability. To chose an eternity with God or an eternity separated from Him. To all who accept the gospel of Jesus Christ as God and man the belief in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that has reveals the one true God will be received by Jesus Christ who stands upon the air; above the cross holding the book of life with all the names of the faithful, that have followed him. On the top of the crossroad reads (victory life eternity heavens door open 1) this means all are saved individually by Jesus Christ one at a time for he knows each individual heart and soul.

(Rev: 20:12) (And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.)

The book of life has the names of all who believe on Him as the only one true God. These good works are all judge by our faith in God’s Word the Son, this is the desire meaning I had. That all of the world’s major faiths. Will be represented by the 12 religious symbols most familiar to everyone. To be realize that everyone is on this path of faith. That gives everyone the ability to choose to believe it is true Jesus Christ is God or it is all a lie as he standing above in judgment of all men. Even if someone could not read the English writing or have it explain they could still see by the religious symbols and know Jesus is above calling all men of every faith to believe in him. And that he holds the finale judgment of the entire world regardless of any man’s faiths, I felt good about the drawing so I inviting family and friends to see it. When to my surprise they saw two images within the drawing that I did not place their intentionally. The two images seem to confirm the drawing’s message is true.

Now once shared with other believers more images were realized. (Matthew 18:20) (For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.) By this verse I realize the action of God among the believers when sharing this drawing. To reveal what I could not see. It became an ideal conversation piece use to witness the Christian faith to family friends. To share the Gospel of Jesus Christ making known the salvation offer to men. Now I look to sign my name some where small so as not to take away from the message. That’s when I saw the third image a man in the belly of the whale or large fish, this look like the prophet Jonah and my name is Jonah.

That’s when I realize the Holy Spirit had signed my name. So I didn't bother to sign my name. That's when I knew it was meant for public view, beyond my home. To be used as a way to share the truth of God’s call to man beyond my family and friends. So I had the art work shrunken to 8x11 standard copy paper. To be easily copy and to my surprise it fitted perfect as if it was meant to be shrunken down. Now I would share it with family, friends, strangers at work and play. About 3years 1996-1999 some 13 images were revealed including the very walls of the old city of Jerusalem were revealed with in the drawing. All the images relate to Bible verse now once revealed make the drawing come alive with the aid of the Christian Bible and with the map of the old city Jerusalem. All to confirm the drawing message is true that Jesus Christ is Lord God and man. All this was far beyond my hope or conception. That God has truly revealed Himself. With the truth of His salvation message being revealed and proclaiming the doctrine of the trinity with in this simple art work. Easy to share and made free to be copied as a tract, with the Gospel of Jesus Christ the message that can’t be ignored. So much had developed that 8 of the images where placed in a palm size booklet name Paths toward God by faith.

Develop to share with others the joy in having a loving relationship with God the Father sharing the truth of God the Son’s life and shed blood. Explaining the reason why we Christians are call born again, saints sealed by God the Holy Spirit when we believe by faith alone in Jesus Christ. It explains what a Christian is, what is the trinity and what does born again mean. To knowing how to be saved, why we all are born lost. Needing to be saved become a Christian. and how we can know once saved always saved. Reasons why the truly faithful will be known as lovers of the Truth, that is God. The booklet explains how important our witness is that all our success is because of Jesus Christ. The drawing has made it easier when sharing of the Christian faith, by having a simply discussing about the art work first. Then letting the art speak for it self by the many images with Bible verse and present day map that all reveals Jesus Christ is the Son of God, with in the art work it self bears witness of this truth and the trinity. That the one God has choose to reveal him self as Father, Son and Holy Spirit Truth revealed with in its very design that has revealed 13+ hidden images that points to the holy scripture of the Christian Bible. That clearly proclaims that Jesus Christ is the Son God and a man to be true.

The drawing gives a greater purpose and meaning than I the artist could ever imagine. Since none of the images were intentionally place there by me the artist. With the obvious purpose now revealed, is it is surely meant to be a witnessing tool that is touchable exam able piece of art to proclaim the truth of the Christian faith and that the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the truth of God’s call to man not a religion developed by men traditions and opinions about what is the truth. I have posted on the web site, 13 + images, the first 8 images in the order that they were first revealed. With Bible verses to confirm they are not just abstract image with out any purpose. They are to be a useful tool to encourage the study of the many Bible verses that reveals Jesus as God and man. A modern day tangible evidence, of God the Holy Spirit working in the believers who revealed the images to the artist who didn’t see. His presence was made evident by the drawing’s many hidden images how they were revealed by discussing the drawing’s message of faith. A brief detail of how to read the drawing is written on a tract for free down load. Staying true to the gospel message of Jesus Christ, that the good news should be a free gift from God, shared by the faithful.

To be made easier to share by this simple piece of art and map for free down load, to be copied and use as a tract. I realized after the many images were discovered it was meant to be shared world wide. To aid in proclaim the gospel message is true making easier the sharing of the Christian faith. Not as a religion of blind faith but a testimony of the truth about who God is found in the Bible. I welcome every one to examine the drawing, its development its message its true author. I am looking for other art work with similar hidden images that # 13+. All placed in the art unintentionally by the artist that leads to a single message of faith. I have looked but have not find any art similar, where the art speaks back to you with hidden images given clear meaning of its message by Bible verse and historical map with satellite pictures of present Jerusalem’s old city. With so much revealed that only seems to confirm this gospel message of love, faith and grace is true who can deny the artwork being so simple seem to be a purposefully designed with the soul saving purpose to share the good news the gospel message of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ alone is to be made known.

Paths toward God by faith: is a simple art work drawn to proclaim the truth of God’s call to save all man kind from an eternity in Hell. How we can live a victorious life today and to know we who believe have an eternity in Heaven to look forward to. My desire was to show Jesus Christ is man’s only hope. But greater than my desire has been realized in how the art work has comes alive as the words in the Bible also do. To say it is true, God’s will and desire is that all will be save by the gospel of Jesus Christ, a message of love and hope for the world to know, by God’s great sacrifice of the life of his Son. So that who so ever has faith in Him will be saved.

By what path toward God by faith we all chose will determine or end regardless of our beginning. The all powerful life saving truth is proclaimed in this simple art work that is difficult to deny. I hope it will strengthen the faith full and help erase the many doubt about Jesus Christ as God and man for the unbelieving. With the study of the Bible verse that help to reveal the greater meaning of the images as more than just abstract images with out meaning and purpose. Truth about Jesus Christ is harder to deny once the evidence is sincerely examined. Only if one sincerely examine and seek the truth of who God is then they will find the truth of who God truly is not by a religion but by faith in the truth of God’s word written in the Bible so man can know him. This truth is the beginning of a relationship with God as a loving Father and friend, not religion that produces boundaries and confusion only making known there is a God or gods. Please I hope you enjoy the web site please leave any comment on the drawing all are welcomed. And if anyone can suggest more ways to use the drawing to share the gospel message. I would welcome their comments.

7 images in the order as 1st revealed

The First Symbol of the Christian Faith Was a Fish
1. The First Symbol of the Christian Faith Was a Fish

The first image revealed in the drawing was a fish. The fish symbol was first used by Christian to identify that you where a Christian in secret before using the cross. It is commonly used today alike the cross on homes, cars and jewelry to proclaim the faith. The symbol used because Jesus said he would make his disciples fisher of men. Later many notice the image looked like an angel fish.

(Matthew 4:18) And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

(Matthew 4:19) And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

(Luke 5:10) And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men.

(Jeremiah 16:16) Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.

(Jeremiah 16:17) For mine eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid from my face, neither is their iniquity hid from mine eyes.

(Jeremiah 16:21) Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know mine hand and my might; and they shall know that my name is The LORD.

The first image of Satan revealed to man was a dragon or large serpent.
2. Satan, Lucifer, the Devil:

The first image of Satan revealed to man was a dragon or large serpent. In the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:1). Now this serpent is the second sign revealed at the bottom of the drawing. Where no peace no forgiveness exist the reality of the condemned. The bottom drawn to show the bowels of earth, now looks like the head of a serpent coming out of the lake of fire. With the stars of Satan the pentagram now becomes the eye of the dragon or large serpent.

(Genesis 3:1-16)

(Job 40:15-24, 41:1)

(Revelation: 12:3) And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

(Revelation: 12:4) And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

(Revelation: 12:9) And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

(Revelation:13:4, 20:10; Isaiah 27:1; Ezekiel 20:3,4;Ezekiel 29:3,4)

Third image revealed was a whale or a large fish.
3. Jonah: A Man in the Belly of the Whale

Third image revealed was a whale or a large fish. Where Adam is praying to God, now looks like a man praying inside a large fish or whale. It is the image of Jonah the Old Testament prophet. Who was swallowed by a large fish for disobeying the call of God.

(Jonah 2:1) Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish's belly,

(Jonah 2:2) And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice

(Jonah 2:6) I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God.

(Luke 11:29) And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.

As Jonah was 3 days in the belly of the fish, so shall Jesus be buried in the grave for 3 days.

(Luke 11:30) For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation.

The 4th image revealed was a woman who looks to be pregnant. With hope written across her forehead.
4. Mary mother of faith; a woman is about to give birth

The 4th image revealed was a woman who looks to be pregnant. With hope written across her forehead. As the name of Jesus is written on the path. The Word, that is Jesus, coming from between her knees. Symbolizing the birth of Jesus Christ, God's living Word becoming flesh for man.

As Mary screams up into the heavens as in pain from labor. This image I believe to be the image Of Mary the Mother of Faith. For by faith the true believer believes she was a virgin (Isaiah 7:14) who gave birth to God.

For the very birth of Jesus Christ was a miracle of hope, for the Jew, a promise fulfilled. To mankind and the world's salvation is made known. His birth was prophecy to take place from the 1st book of the Old Testament in (Gensis 3:15). As also the 1st book of the New Testament (Matthew 1:23) speaks of prophecy fulfillment.

(Isaiah 7:14) Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Immanuel means God is with us.

(Luke 1:28) And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

(Luke 1:35)  And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.       

Eve Mother of Flesh the 5th image revealed in this artwork, reveals the mother of mankind, the world, the flesh, the lost.
5. Eve mother of flesh; a woman has just given birth

Eve Mother of Flesh the 5th image revealed in this artwork, reveals the mother of mankind, the world, the flesh, the lost. Lost because all are born lost in sin and in need of a Savior, all but Jesus. Jesus, who is God born as man's only Savior. When connecting all the pagan faiths together, you have a woman who just gave birth with the serpent present to attack the baby and the woman.

(Genesis 3:15) And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

(Revelation 12:14) And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

(Revelation 12:17) And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

(Proverbs 7:21-27, Revelation 12:3-5, 9-10, 13-14; Revelation 17:3-9, 12-14, 16-17)

The hands of God the 6th image is a  man with his hands clasped together as if molding clay on a potters wheel.
6. Two Hands Molding Clay

The hands of God the 6th image is a man with his hands clasped together as if molding clay on a potters wheel. With clay between his fingers on his hands, you don’t see the thumbs because they are pressed into the clay. These seem to symbolize the hands of God (Genesis 2:7) says God formed man from the dust of the earth and God is the creator of all things and all are made from his hands.

(Job 10:8) Thine hands have made me and fashioned me together round about; yet thou dost destroy me.

(Job 10:9) Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again?

(Jeremiah 18:4)

(Jeremiah 18:6) O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.

(Isaiah 45:7)

(John 1:3) All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

(Colossians 1:16) For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

(John 20:25) The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the LORD. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

(Romans 9:21-24)

The 7th image revealed was the Father as He speaks His word is made flesh in the man Jesus Christ.
7. The Father speaks; and the Word is made flesh in a man name Jesus Christ

The 7th image revealed was the Father as He speaks His word is made flesh in the man Jesus Christ. You can see a side profile of a man, his nose, eyebrows and his hair with three locks of hair. I believe this represents the Trinity. This is the foundation of the Christian faith, that God's living word has come in the flesh. Then along the neck is the Adam's apple, this seems to confirm the image is a man and not a woman.

(Psalm 33:6) By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

(John 1:1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

(John 1:14) And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

(John 14:9) Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?

(John 14:10) Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

The old city of Jerusalem

8. The old city of Jerusalem

This is the 8th signed revealed that caused wonder and amazement, that the very map of the old city of Jerusalem, was discovered while reading the Atlanta Journal Sunday newspaper 12/27/98. To be shaped like the Father's image, even lining up to fit inside the drawing. It is shaped like the side profile of a man and fits within the drawing as if designed to do so. Even the Adam's apple and the crown is visible. As if to confirm the drawing speaks the truth about God and the Holy Trinity.

Satellite View of the old city of Jerusalem

9. Satellite View of the old city of Jerusalem

This is the present day satellite view of the old city of Jerusalem from the internet discovered 6/9/08. the city has a crack visible from space that lines up with the crack on the drawing that represents the Mount of Olives splitting open upon Jesus' return. It too can be easily lined up within the drawing as if it was intentionally done. With the greater purpose to confirm the truth of the drawing's message, to the doubtful, so that all can be saved by the message of hope.

Please receive this simple artwork as it proclaims the many paths of faith toward God leads to one best understood by the 3 persons of the trinity. The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. I hope it will be used as a witnessing tool to share the Christian faith and the call of Jesus Christ to all men, to come as we are and believe the truth that he is God and man who saves all men by our faith in Him. Please examine the art and 13+ more images revealed with 3 free tracts. I hope the website will be enjoyable and helpful in understanding the Christian faith is about the greater truth discovered by having a relationship with God and not just a religion.
