The Palm Sunday Connection (Info under The Cloth)
In August of 1998 in Montclair,
This unusual painting was not painted on either side of this gigantic cloth. The images were deeply embedded within the fibers of this cloth and could only be seen if the cloth were backlit. Otherwise, the cloth remained black on both sides.
Revelation 19:11 - 20:3 states that Jesus is coming on the back of a white horse with a sword extending out of his mouth along with his army of warring angels. The fowl will wait for the great supper that will consist of the flesh of mighty men and horses. Then, according to the scripture, Jesus will slay Satan and place him into the lake of fire for 1000 years, inaugurating Christ’s millennial reign on earth. Then everything will be renewed. The images in this cloth clearly parallel this passage. All of the elements in these verses are present in this muslin cloth. Also, all of these images appear in their appropriate place to parallel these verses.
After the image was photographed on a Polaroid, another extraordinary dimension of this main image was revealed. When that same white horse image was reversed, the image resembled a robed, faceless, crowned woman with light directly over her head. She appeared as the Virgin Mary, Jesus’ mother. She emerged from the total blackness. Even more, the entire image resembled a giant serpent’s head. The two oblong eyes were located on the extreme left and right sides of the main image, about halfway between the top and the bottom of the design. The serpent’s mouth was open and situated at the bottom of the main image. The snake’s tongue was spitting outwardly. (The serpent’s head was seen within the white horse image.) Other images also flank this main image.
My story is not about me or any specific religion. This cloth is about the direct message that has been sent to the world through passages from the Bible; Revelation 19:11 - 20:3. How this message is perceived is entirely up to the reader.
UPDATE 2012 - THE EYE OF GOD
Another very important image also appeared in August 1998, but it was never found again until 14 years later. It was an eye. In early 2012, my daughter found the eye once again.
The eye faintly appears as a watermark. It is situated at the very top of the cloth in the left hand corner. This very strong masculine eye stares straight at the viewer. It is approximately 12" long by 8" wide.
According to Webster Dictionary a watermark is defined as the following - A translucent design impressed on paper during manufacture and visible when the finished paper is held to the light. This eye is the watermark of this cloth. It is faintly embedded within the cloth and can only be seen when it is backlit or held up to the light.
