Mirhez Images is the home of American Artist Anthony Crudup. We invite you to join us as we minister the gospel of our Lord Jesus the Christ. The name Mirhez is a combination of my parents first names Miriam and Hezekiah. I do this in honor of them.

Me

The primary principle of my art is to paint from life the message of Jesus Christ. Our humanity provides the greatest inspiration for my work. It is through the Spirit of God and the Reborn human condition that my obsession for art is found in larger-than-life representations of the Holy Spirit on Canvas I love using the contrasts of shapes ,colors , and textures finding them as we relate to the Spirit of God . How our spirit man can be rendered in such glory as we give praise to our creator and God. With this I can make my case for the wonderful and marvelous creation given to us by God. Creating positive images and reflecting God's greatest attribute –LOVE May the presence and Spirit of God reach all who visit this site. Peace and Love. The background image is the one place in the world the artist desires to visit and is on his bucketlist. The statue of Jesus the Christ located in Rio.

He is Everything

Mirhez Images/ 7 November 2017

We who are Jews by birth and not sinful Gentiles  know that a person is not justified by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law, because by the works of the law no one will be justified.  “But if, in seeking to be justified in Christ, we Jews find ourselves also among the sinners, doesn’t that mean that Christ promotes sin? Absolutely not!  If I rebuild what I destroyed, then I really would be a lawbreaker.  “For through the law I died to the law so that I might live for God.  I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.  I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!” Today my focus and blessing is rooted by my faith in Jesus Christ. No matter what happens if my attention is centered on my past failures and thinking then i cloud my vessel with the trash I should have let go the moment it became worthless to me.Today I will live according to the word of God for faith comes by hearing and comes by the word of God. Today my thought life will be centered on the word of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ. Amen

Judge

Mirhez Images/11 October 2017

My conscience is clear, but that does not make me innocent. It is the Lord who judges me.  Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait until the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart. At that time each will receive their praise from God. I Corinthians 4:4,5 Good Morning: Today is a beautiful and wonderful day in which the Lord has made. I am encouraged today that my conscience is clear and although it is clear it does not make me innocent. The writer of this piece of scripture has definitely reached me today. I will enter this day free to make a decision on who and what to choose. Good over evil, God over man. I choose God today in order that my seed and I can live. (Deuteronomy 3:19) Today I am free from making a judgement about anyone else's life. As indicated in the reference of scripture it implies that we judge nothing until the Lord comes. My prayer today is to keep me free of that judgement of others and myself in order to use my vessel to deliver the living water (Jeremiah 2:13) of Jesus the Christ. Amen

Living Water lV

Another in the Living Water series of images, there is nothing more thrilling than the opportunity to receive through the Cross the Living Water of Christ. As we fall on our knees and open our vessels the Living Water provides the nutrients to produce the fruit of the Spirit which is necessary for us to flourish in our daily lives. Revelation 22:1-4 gives us a glimpse of the scene where the tree of Life will produce the fruit every month necessary to heal the nations. Amen.

Brothers

It is somewhat relational concerning the first fight and the fighting that presents itself in our lives on a continual basis. Lets look at the first fight and find the similarities. And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering. But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him. And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper? Genesis 4: 2 - 9 Every day of our lives we struggle with the issue that set off Cain. Most of the time it is not in relationship with pleasing our Father in Heaven, but our own selfish motives. We make statements like I can't stand him/her concerning a co worker, relative, neighbor or aquaintance. Usually it is driven by pride as it relates to who is superior. We make comments about those in leadership for instance the current administration in Washington D.C. that is attacked on all sides because it doesn"t live up to a standard raised by the party opposite of the one thats in position. Why can we not encourage our brother in his effort to do well? Where is the harm in expressing love instead of hate or division. In Matthew 7 Jesus kind of hints at the solution to solving this issue. He says, "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye." Matthew 7: 4,5 Usually the root of the fighting or issue is one that identifies with self. The very issue we struggle with is usually magnified to a point that it kills the life or opportunity that is presented to make us better. Understand that God did not respect what Cain was offering. To the contrary He respected Abel's. As a result in his blindness and misunderstanding Cain slew his brother. My prayer is that as we take a look at this fight to get a clear understanding of how to be our brothers keeper. In the end lets not wage war over differences in culture, race, money, status, class,and position. Lets take our example from our God who hung his only begotten on a tree in order to have a relationship with us for an eternity. One that is matriculated in love not hate regardless of our failures. Amen

Power Of The Cross

For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 1 Corinthians 1:17,18 As I attemempt to analyze these statements i begin to realize that the true witness of the cross is not the words we sometime speak or preach. Neither is it the symbolism that accompanies relegious dogmas or tradition. The witness of the cross is realized and proclaimed by the heart as it dies to the nature of the world and becomes alive in the power of the Holy Spirit. As a living testimony of God's resurrection power we begin to come alive by the three virtues of the cross which begin with death, then the burial, and of course the resurrection. These three powerful acts of the cross is foolish to the natural world because it is contrary to what the world believes. The apostle Paul presents a very valid point when he emphasized in his writing that it is foolishness (ill-considered; unwise) to them that are perishing. ( 1 Corinthians 1: 18) Try to explain to someone that Jesus Christ is the son of God to someone who is bent on believing that He is not is like teaching an aligator to speak Latin. With words and actions it is impossible. To illustrate to them that the trinity exist is like pulling teeth from a great white shark. I believe the only way you can succesfully pull teeth from a great white is to kill it. Get my point. So in other words the words that we speak sometimes as believers do not effectively translate or present a witness to the unbelievers who are challenged by traditon, religion and wordly wisdom..
