The Excellency of the Power May be of God
Today while downloading YouTube videos on the history of the Renaissance, I was given a revelation from heaven of a thousand words received in a blink of an eye
Around six years ago, I was given a vision of a Leonardo da Vinci drawing called the “Vitruvian man”. It is also called the “Measurement of Man”. It seemed as this was an important revelation at the time, although I read all the information I could find on this subject, the meaning of the revelation escaped me.
I put the word on the self. God at times seems to release revelation to His church piecemeal, bit by bit. At a later time, perhaps the truth may be seen more clearly. Much like the parables that Jesus used to make teaching points during His ministry.
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;” (2 Corinthians 4:7-8).
On February 3, 2017, I received another revelation of which I wrote down to record it. I posted to this blog lclioncross.com called “Heaven is Going to Release a Renaissance”. It is very similar to a revelation I received on 03.02.2002 in which I posted to this blog entry;
called “Economic Revival”.
Yesterday, another revelation was given to me. An image of the Vitruvian Man again, and why that vision was given to me. I sensed that this is an important part of the new millennium that is dawning upon us. Again I tried to research and pin down a more concise meaning to the cornucopia of delight that I experienced and saw.
Who is this Venturian, and How does He relate to the New Renaissance?
Leonardo da Vinci was/is a well know Renaissance savant. He drew the Venturian Man from the inspiration of the Roman architect Vitruvius. Specifically from the treatise “Ten Books on Architecture. Book III, Chapter I, “On Symmetry: In Temples And In The Human Body”.
It is thought da Vinci in his day he did some graphic work on commission for Vitruvius. But both men shared an important belief;
da Vinci “believed the workings of the human body to be an analogy for the workings of the universe”
This is a very astute observation. da Vinci put in graphic form how mathematics confirms this postulation. And that is the human body in this world appears perfectly imperfect. It is none the less an observable dwelling place of the Lord. This form of the body is found in the kingdom of heaven is a perfect reflection of the body of Christ.
“For we are members of His body” (Ephesians 5:30)
“Now you are the body of Christ, and each of you is a member of it” (1 Corinthians 12:27)
Bible Scripture confirms Vitruvius and da Vinci postulation that the Tabernacle, the Temple, and the human body are essentially the same thing, just in different forms. It represents a dwelling place of Almighty God.
“For You formed my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are Your works, and I know this very well” (Psalms 139:13-14)
“Do you not know that you are a temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God shall destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which you are” (1 Corinthians 3:16-17).
What does this have to do with the coming Renaissance?
What is a Renaissance? It means re-birth. It is Jubilee. It is the expression of LOVE and Blessings from our heavenly Father. It comes after a period of cleansing. It came after Jesus has been in the wilderness and angels ministered unto Him. It comes to the common Christian in the world when they have been in the fire of the Potter’s hand being formed for eternal purposes. There is always a time of consolation and rebirth that follows troubles. Whether in this life or the next for those who love the Lord. This is His divine MERCY. And divine MERCY is nothing less than His divine LOVE!
But this time of consolation and this time of Jubilee will be truly remarkable
It will be a worldwide blessing that has never been seen or experienced before. It is the Love of God that passes all understanding
“that their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and to all riches of the full assurance of the understanding, to the full knowledge of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;” (Colossians 2:2).
“And the peace of God which passes all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7).
The Final Piece of the Puzzle
I still felt a nagging lack of conclusion to this revelation. So today I was having breakfast with a Christian brother. I was relating my revelation experience. He was well read on the background images I had received. He said he understood God was trying to communicate to me.
The Venturian Man is a mathematical equation, a formation of geometry in which God expresses Himself through each and every true believer. Each one of us is given a special gift, in which to bless others.
A lightning bolt of light flashed through my mind! Of course, God will use the vehicle of the New Emerging Church on earth to express himself in this Jubilee.
Through the church, the entire earth will be blessed. Blessed be His name. Jubilee is not about us so much about us as it is about the plans of Creator God to display before the universe His glory and power. But we get to as His children get to share in the glory of Almighty God and in serving Him.
