In this spectacular collection called “JESUS IS THE HEART OF IT,” magnificent stained glass windows from churches throughout the United States are used to show the Son of God as being both the Alpha and Omega; meaning the beginning and end. Through the generosity of churches from every denomination, willing to allow the writer to use their priceless windows, Jesus has been placed at the very heart of God’s plan for all creation.
Consequently, the reader is invited to marvel at the ability of the early artisans to not only thrill the eye with color, but be able to create movement and dimension, through the process of layering techniques, that resulted in windows that are considered masterpieces. Highly recognized techniques by Tiffany are at home in the company of artisans’ works of equal quality. The process and materials used to create these stained glass windows completed so long ago to share God’s Word to all mankind are now a thing of the past due to cost and the changing times.
Thus, when the Holy Spirit spoke to the writer about placing Jesus at the heart of God’s plan for His children by using stained glass windows, needless to say, she was puzzled as to how this could be accomplished. How was it possible to locate the necessary windows depicting the Alpha & Omega? However, that question was coming from the writer’s human mind without taking into account the Scripture that states that nothing is impossible for our God! As you journey through the collection, it is the writer’s hope that you, too, will be reminded that anything is possible for our God. He can use our ordinary gifts and thoughts and turn them into extraordinary treasures.
Finally, above all, it is the writer’s greatest desire that you will clearly and beautifully witness God’s plan of redemption for all his children through His One and Only Son; Jesus. In the gospel of John, Jesus was described as the Word: placing him present from the beginning of time. John 1: 1-2 states, “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.”
Additionally, John then clearly stated that the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us; God’s Son who lived on earth full of grace and truth with the mission of becoming our Savior and Redeemer. This same Jesus, who was crucified, died, arose and ascended to his Father will come back down to earth the very same way his disciples witnessed him returning to heaven. He will keep his promise and return for his believers. BLESS HIS HOLY NAME!
