Protectors of the Portal
artwork 8 X 10
by Janice VanCronkhite
This painting was the result of a vision of angelic beings surrounding and protecting a portal into heaven. God is giving more understanding to His Church about these heavenly portals. He is teaching us how to live in the realm of the Spirit and the supernatural realities.
Jacob witnessed a heavenly portal that looked like a ladder descending from Heaven and exclaimed, "This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven" (Gen. 28:10-17). And those "now you see them, now you don't" occurrences in the New Testament were more than likely facilitated by stepping into portals. Jesus was able to miraculously escape through a furious crowd ready to throw Him off a cliff (Luke 4:29,30), and Phillip was whisked so quickly away by the Holy Spirit after baptizing the Ethiopian eunuch (Acts 8:39).
I believe we are now living in a time where stepping in and out of portals can and will become a common experience. Praying in tongues, worship, dance, poetry, and prophetic art are all means God is using to open portals and give access to His very throne. In this environment, healing, deliverance, and salvation will more readily occur.
About the Artist
"Come on up here and I'll show you the art of heaven." That was the invitation that transformed and changed the focus of the life of artist Janice VanCronkhite. Soon something amazing happened. God began flooding her with supernatural creativity and accentuating portals into heavenly realms of color, light, and design. This fresh outflow allowed Janice to begin imparting a release of creativity into others as she spoke and painted in workshops and conferences across the United States.
Now she she is taking creative impartation to a more in-depth and intimate level in her retreats at two "magical" locations: Fire Creek Mountain in Burnsville, North Carolina and Diamonds on the Lake, her studio gallery on beautiful Lake Oconee in White Plains, Georgia. There she helps others reach their own imaginative pinnacle by tearing down the walls that have kept them from exploring their own artistic journey of heavenly creativity.
Janice is recognized for her bold energy on stage creating (painting), speaking and challenging the Church to be released into the fullness and anointing of God's intended creativity. In the end, her desire is to see His love and supernatural power exhibited through every kind of earthly artistic medium.
