I have chosen to depict various symbols in the Bible to reflect God’s Promises throughout the Bible. These symbols are the: rainbow; ark; starry night; shofar; olive leaves; lion; and His Word.
When Jesus ascended from the water, the heavens were opened unto Him—lo and behold, a voice from heaven declared that Jesus was the promised Saviour and the Spirit of God descended as a dove, alighting on Christ. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
God gave us a sign through the parable of the fig tree. When the twigs get tender and its leaves appear, we know that summer is near. When we see revival in Israel, we know the day when the Lord is coming for us is near. This promise gives us great hope and endurance, knowing that all these will come to pass. Heaven and earth will pass away, but His words will never pass away – His promises never fail.
My picture depicts the promise that Abraham and Sarah received from the three visitors. God made a covenant with Abraham and said that Abraham will father a great nation. Later, three men visited Abraham and Sarah near the great trees of Mamre and said that God would give them a child the following year. Abraham and Sarah were already very old; and Sarah was past the age of childbearing. Nevertheless, His promise to them was fulfilled when Sarah gave birth to a son, Isaac, one year later. Abraham was 100 years old and Sarah was 90. I am glad that God always keeps his promises. This is the God we pray to, the God who loves us, and the God who has promised to save us through faith in Christ. I drew this picture as God fulfilled all the promises in Abraham’s life and Abraham had great faith in God.
