 To Illustrate the Many Aspects of the Kingdom of God


About Spirit Illustrated

Spirit Illustrated was born out of a supernatural experience Ron had with God. In 1983, a year after he graduated with a double major in Theology & Counseling from Northwest Nazarene Bible college, he felt the Lord ask him to do a 21 day fast. On the 3rd day, he received an open vision. In the vision, he saw what looked like the Earth floating in his room, about the size of a beach ball. Then he saw what looked like blankets, falling down, covering the Earth. He asked the Lord what this meant. In an audible voice, He said to Ron, “These are your paintings. They will cover the Earth and change the way people think about Me.” At the time, he thought that would take a miracle, as he was not an accomplished artist, and he knew little about painting. The Lord was faithful, and gave him many revelations. There were also divine appointments from several world-renowned artists, whom he was able to learn from. As he looks back, he can see how the Lord ordered his steps and prepared the way. As many of us do, he expected all of that to happen very quickly. The truth is, he is on this journey 30 years later, seeing much of this now fulfilled. Ron’s travels around the world experiencing numerous cultures and including visits to Israel, have uniquely prepared him to communicate the Kingdom through his art. Preparation is everything!
