Inspiration Behind This Painting
The painting was inspired by Daniel chapter 7. Daniel records his vision in this chapter and talks about God’s sovereignty over world events and affairs. He alone determines who stands and falls. He was and is and is to come – He is outside of time and space. The Alpha and the Omega – the Ancient of Days – the beginning and the end.
“As I looked, “thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took his seat. His clothing was as white as snow; the hair of his head was white like wool. His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze. A river of fire was flowing, coming out from before him. Thousands upon thousands attended him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him. The court was seated, and the books were opened.
