Prophetic Art is a blessing from the heart of God that encourages, strengthens or comforts. Prophetic Art is the visual form of prophecy.
art to inspire, encourage, strengthen
“Worship Art is presence-based creating in the spirit of excellence, prophesying hope and healing, and bringing glory to the creator.”
Prophetic art, in its simplest explanation, is the visual form of prophecy. It is art that carries a message from the heart of God to strengthen, encourage and comfort. Whether it speaks to one individual, a congregation, or the Body of Christ overall, it is a gift of blessing, birthed in the heart of an artist who loves God and loves His people.
Prophetic art is not about imparting information, but transformation. In creating a piece of art, the prophetic artist aspires to make a space for the transforming work of the Holy Spirit. Art motivated by love for God will have prophetic power. It is love that stirs the anointing to prophesy, regardless of the form of prophetic delivery. There is no limit to the creativity in communications of the Holy Spirit.
Where prophetic art becomes complex in its definition, and possibly confusing, is when it incorporates other Christian artistic forms. Prophetic art may also be worship art, visual praise, symbolic or iconic art, representational art, or historical biblical illustration. These other forms of Christian art may or may not be prophetic.
“The arts belong to the Lord, and He is raising His army now to retake them.” Upon hearing these words 16 years ago in DaySpring Church, my spirit soared in a life-flashing-before-your-eyes moment. It was a sudden recognition of purpose, a holy nudge saying ‘This is your calling’.
