Come with Him if you want to live.
Art is communication. i am not always so good with the communicating. So i'll splain. Upper right is a back covered in open wounds from the flagellum. The cat o' nine tails. The leather whip with steel and stone barbs laced in it. It is flayed.
To the lower left is grass withering in the red-orange heat of midday.
In the center is the Word. Where it should be.
God is to be praised not just for his mercy and grace but also for his justice and vengeance. He is true. He is the only one with the right to judge since only He is holy and pure and unsullied and all wise. And he opposes the proud. That's not me being self-righteous, that's His words. He opposes the proud. The unforgivable sin is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. The Spirit is truth and testifies about Jesus being the only propitiation of sin, the only way to God, the true Son of righteousness. The proud deny this. The proud want many paths... actually, they just want one, their own, without a mediator, without hearing they are lost without God's intervention, without hearing about God condemning sinners, without hell, without judgment, without obedience.
