The Living Word
This painting really shows the power of the Living Word of God! I love how it's so beautifully painted and it was done live on stage. Enjoy and be blessed!

The Living Word by Mindi Oaten
Acrylic on canvas
"The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth." (John 1:14 NIV)
Jesus is the total Message, everything that God wants to communicate to us. The Word is alive.
The night I painted this I had an encounter with Jesus on stage. His presence was so strong and I could hear him saying, "I'm right here." I had to stop painting because the presence of the Lord was so thick, such a Holy weight surrounding me, I wept. I can't describe in words what I was feeling except I know Jesus is real, He's alive and with us. The Bible isn't just a historical book, it is the very essence of THE one and only living God communicating with us, inviting us to hear from Him and be with Him. The Word is alive.

Artist Mindi Oaten - Alberta, Canada
Mindi Oaten enjoys two facets of life as an artist. One, juggling a busy schedule as a wife and a mom of three boys, while working in her home studio in Cochrane, Alberta. The other, painting live prophetically during worship services throughout the United States, and more recently overseas. She is contracted by a ministry based out of Dallas, TX called Time to Revive. Mindi paints everyday imagery the Lord shows her and invites the viewer into a deeper message. She believes there is power in the simplicity of everyday visuals when the Holy Spirit is the inspiration behind it. Painting is her act of worship. It allows her to connect to the Lord, to give, to inspire, and to invite the viewer into a new perspective.
