Prophetic Art is art existing in many creative forms, including photography, that is inspired by the Holy Spirit for the purpose of glorifying God. As a photographer, it is my way to humbly express thankfulness and appreciation not only for the beauty of His creation, but also for His love and mercy. The mystery in Prophetic Art is how God works in and through the art to bring hope and healing and encouragement to His children as described below.
- Nathan Friberg -
Prophetic Art is a personal revelation from the Holy Spirit expressed through the artist’s imaginative and technical skill for the purpose of edification, encouragement, consolation, conviction & revelation to the Body of Christ, be they photography, drawing, sculpture, painting or any other kind of artwork that’s created with a Kingdom purpose. What makes this form of art prophetic is that the inspiration for it comes from the Holy Spirit and that God speaks through the artist’s imaginative and technical skill. It should always be a blessing to the viewer, as that’s the essence for all prophecy - 1Cor.14:3. Sometimes the Holy Spirit will use this art to release healing or power or emotional freedom in a way that spoken words can not. It can bring an awareness of beauty or awe that penetrates deeply between soul and spirit, and targets the heart of a person’s being. When the Holy Spirit partners with the artist and imparts His presence into the work, it becomes an instrument of revelation or encounter long after the work was created.
