Throughout time angels have often been portrayed as feminine and dainty or in fearsome poses attributing to them a level of power and malevolence that is inaccurate. Scripture shows neither of these depictions and instead points to angels as being God’s messengers going about His work. In Messenger, DiCianni depicts an angel looking toward heaven ready for orders from God. He is strong and powerful but only in the reflection of his Creator and Master. This painting was created for the cover of the novel, The Travels of Messenger.
This painting shows an angel I have named “Messenger” (the Biblical name for angel!) awaiting orders from his Master. His gaze is heavenward to God and his sword is ready to do the bidding of his Creator, affirming Hebrews 1:14, "Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit Salvation?"
