Stand Your Faith

Jesus being mocked by the Roman soldiers. Jesus stood his faith with the help of the Holy Spirit, symbolized by the  wings of the dove giving protection from the soldiers. The softness of Jesus skin is contrasted with the hardness of the soldier's armor. Rough strokes are used to depict matter while fine strokes are used to create the human skin.

Leap of Faith

Jesus walking on the water, ready to save a soul in dire trouble. A huge wave is at the verge of swallowing the man and his boat. The man is still holding on to his material goods represented by the boat. His grim situation urges him to let go of his materialism and walk on water, in faith to Christ. For many people it takes a lot of hardship before they see that Jesus is the answer to their problems. The swirls in the starry night symbolize the "magic" Jesus can do for us. When life is all smooth sailing we think we do not need God. With sending a big wave in your direction now and then he wants to get your attention. He wants you to step out of your boat, trust in Christ and walk on water to the safety of Christ.

The Good Samaritan after van Gogh and Delacroix

Painted first by the French painter Delacroix and later copied by Van Gogh parable of The Good Samaritan starts with a question from a lawyer asking "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" The lawyer answers the question himself by saying that one should love the lord with all his heart, soul and strength and your neighbor as yourself. Do this and you (Your Soul) will live Jesus answered. For the lawyer and us it is not clear who our neighbor is. Jesus tell the lawyer then the story of the Jew that got robbed and a Samaritan stranger and normally hostile to the Jews felt compassion for the wounded man. A hypocrite religious priest and Levite, people that are supposed to know God walk in a bow around one of their own in need of help. The outcast Samaritan bandaged the Jew's wounds, put him on his donkey and brought him to an inn. This parable teaches you that love is something you feel and do and furthermore attacks racial prejudices. Your neighbor is anyone in need whom you have the ability to help.

Lazarus come forth

The raising of Lazarus is one of the most perplexing stories of the bible.  The story starts with some skeptics asking Jesus if he is really the Son of God. They want him to prove it. A few days later Jesus' friend Lazarus dies and Jesus waits four days to demonstrate his power over death. Jesus calls out: "Lazarus come forth" Jesus explains that He has done this so that all may truly believe that He, the son of God, has power over death. Even seeing miracles does not necessarily make people believe. After Jesus raised Lazarus from the death the Pharisees and high priest decided to put Jesus to death. In a symbolic way the story also represents the fact that Jesus can awaken the spiritual death. It does not matter how long your souls has been dead, as soon as you find Jesus you will be revived.

Ruminate the truth carefully

The girls on the bridge are looking at a reflection of the church. Say the church represents God, then the reflection of the church reflects religion. Religion distorts the true God. Not one religion in the world gets it right and one distorts more than the other. That it is dangerous for the girls to rely solely on religion is represented by the railing they are leaning on. This railing lacks supporting posts. In essence the girls should be on their quest for God like the woman in the distance. Being stagnant they will never find Him. The white wall represents the separation between life and death with an opening to heaven for the people that search for God. The starry night in the background represents God's eternal energy and light for the souls that make it to heaven. In essence the ultimate goal for each person on earth is to go to heaven and with the help of Jesus Christ you can find the path and gate to it.

The dance of life and God is omnipotent

All people do their dance in life and sin in the mean time. We dance as if their is no end to our life, but the walkway clearly ends. The man in the foreground keeps an eye on everybody and sees everything. The man dancing at the right side is lusting after the anguished  woman in black that has her hands bound, representing that she is married. This man resembles the pope and the purpose of putting him here is to show that nobody is above sin. The green couple on the left think they do not need any help during their life dance, but the material railing that gives the the illusion of safety has no supporting posts. The man in the foreground is extending a flower to the girl in white which connects her to the bible and the book of life on the table. The help of the Christ Words will ensure you that you will go to the light at the end of your dance of life. You will avoid the darkness on either side of the sun.

Final Choice

The center of this painting is the cross in the window behind the people. The cross represents Jesus Christ. The people in the foreground walk away from the cross and by doing so decline Christ as their savior. Although the people in the foreground are still alive physically, they are dead spiritually. Their eyes look being without a soul and they are on their way to darkness. Their faces are de-humanized, zombie like. Although they are packed tightly their is no communication among them; they are a lonely crowd. The solitary person on the right side walks in the opposite direction, against the subhuman stream. He is on his way back to the cross, receives the light and is saved. In the past he was part of the "Zombie" group going for his second death, but realized just in time to repent and turn around. In this life it is never to late to make this decision. Don't find out the value of your soul after death, when it is to late.
