Paintings Hi! I am Sweetie Pie. I will show you paintings. In every painting is a story. Stories about God who is one and also three... May be you see some other things in it than I do! That’s why I show you the paintings first. I hope you will enjoy them!
What do we see? There is a light at the end of the tunnel. The white dove flies towards us. It brings a message from God, this is The Holy Spirit! The priest sends with incense a prayer to heaven, to God the Father. We cannot see him. The priest walks over the water. This might be Jesus, the Son of God. He could walk on the water! There is more between heaven and earth! Endless consciousness with God. This is the name of this painting. It means that life will not stop when you die. And that you can be with God then. Yes!
My name is Sweetie Pie. Why would that be? I have a fish on my eye, did you see that? Long time ago people could not talk about Jesus, the Son of God. Everybody would be angry if they did. That’s why they drew a fish to show that they love Jesus and that Jesus loves us. Smart idea, don’t you think? Like this they could find friends who think the same, without saying something! So I leave the fish on my eye! I will show you pieces from The Bible sometimes. The Book of God. In fact this one book is just like a library. There are a lot of books in it. One of them is the Bible book of Proverbs. Proverbs Chapter 15, Verse 30. Smiling faces make you happy! God, who is one and also three! You know something about that now. At the last picture you learned that. God is: God the Father, God de Son and The Holy Spirit. I do not understand much of that yet, but it does not matter. I believe it. And believing is good, God tells us.
This is Iwan, my best friend He has been very ill and died. Would he be in heaven now? A hand from above protects him. That is the hand of God. He protects all who believe in him. Iwan is having wings here so he will be an angel, I suppose… How lucky he is! And later I will see him when God thinks I am ready. I would like to take a look now, but I am not allowed to do that, God sais. God will tell me when it is time.
Logos Hope Puzzle Do you see the pieces of the puzzle? Learning about God is just like making a puzzle. At first you cannot see what the image is, but you believe it will be good. Than a piece fits and you see it is all right. The image gets clearer. It will be all right! That’s how it is with God too! The ship which is passing by is Logos Hope. 350 people on the ship go around the world to make Jesus known in all the world. God likes people to do that. There are a lot of books on board. A lot of Bibles too! And the people of the ship go around helping people with all kind of things. In front you see somebody waving the white flag. Why would that be?
On the waves of life... On the waves of life You’re a captain next to God. To go the right course Along the cliffs of fate... (From an old Duch rhime) Things like this are in the Bible too. In the Book of God. We cannot see him, but he is there... God tells us which direction is best to go. That’s fine! God has many names, one of them is: The Lord. Bible book Proverbs: Chapter 16, Verse 9. Man makes his plans, but The Lord directs his actions.
This is Honey, she is my girlfriend! She is not beautiful but sweet and that is the most important. She has a good heart. She is cheerful and does good things. She is wise. Do you see the fishes in her eyes? Bible book Jeremiah: Chapter 31, Verse 33. I will put my law within them and write it on their hearts... In your heart you know which is right... When God tells you something it always makes you calm and sometimes very glad! I cannot read so well which is in my heart yet. But Jesus tells us it is not so bad to make mistakes, if you always try to do the right thing. He loves you for ever... PFFF, that’s a relief...
I hope you liked it. See you later, Sweetie Pie! The cross and the Light This little girl found Jesus! How do I know that? I see a fish. Did you see it too? But you also can see it in something else. Jesus is the Son of God. He is our example. He did everything for us. He even died on the cross! But he is still there and we can talk to him. We think about Jesus when we see a cross. Bible book the Gospel of John: Chapter 8, Verse 12. Jesus said: “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will have the light of life and will never walk in darkness.” The girl has the cross and the light in her hands, do you see? That’s great! And Jesus is always with us. He said it himself!
