In this illustration I’ve drawn a vision I had when I saw the recent “Avengers Infinity War” movie.
A few thoughts about this illustration.
Here I’ve drawn Jesús confronting Thanos.
In the Marvel story Thanos needed to gather the stones that had been scattered all throughout the universe and after placing them on his gauntlet would have “infinite power”. This would enable him to carry out his plans in the snap of his fingers. (Wiping out half of the population in the universe and recreating his own version of a perfect world).
But here I have drawn Jesus snapping his fingers and in so doing removing his gauntlet, and piercing him with the sword of the Spirit. Inscribed on the sword are Hebrew words that read “The Word of Yahweh”
So symbolically we know that the word of God is like a sword, “ it is alive and active. Sharper than any two-edged sword cutting between soul and spirit, joint and marrow and exposes the thoughts and intentions of the heart”.
We also know that Christ is the incarnate Word of God who will judge the nations with a sword that comes from his mouth(the word of God).
In contrast, Jesus has no need of a gauntlet to acquire “infinite power” but possesses it because of who he is. Jesús Said “All authority has been give to me in heaven and on earth”. And as the God almighty “when he rises his foes are defeated-in this case “snaps his fingers”.
