This painting was given on Erev Shabbat, September 13, 2002, during the Jewish High Holy days.  This was given to me unexpectedly when I was being anointed with oil to pray with the ministry team that was ministering that evening following the message time.   It was the furthest thing from my mind that the Almighty would give me another painting ...but our ways are not His are they?
The Almighty said a VERY NEW thing to me this time.  First of all He said that He would be giving me these visions to paint for Him until He calls me home, so if you have read all the previous testimonies for each painting up to this time you will understand this is very different  for me and quite exciting and challenging also!  The other thing was, as I was watching this vision I KNEW THEN that  scripture from the New Covenant -B'rit Ha-da-shah - was to be included on the painting.  In the past only scriptures from the Torah and prophets and Tehillim (Psalms) and Song of Songs have been used which point to Messiah, so this for me was very exciting also. 
I have felt an extreme urgency to get this painting finished and have been able to paint  in the midst of my involvement with ministry and family.  I feel that this painting is part of God's answer for the coming days and once again it is His hope for us....... but also His warning.... to us.
I again recorded all the words and scriptures given during the 24 hours the vision was received and am going to try and share with you here from my journal.  As I have said before if the painting does not bring across what the Almighty has shown me ...I will try here to paint it with words ...also ...WE KNOW that no matter what...the scriptures will not fail to bring about the purposes of God because God's word does not come back void!
I fell under the power of God and went very deep into His presence....The following occurred over about a forty-five minute period.......
BELOW....the following from my journal....
I see Jesus very tall and beautiful---majestic and powerful.  As He is standing in beautiful garments I see part of one side is made of stone....foundation stone....This was one of the very first things I see and focus on as I look up at Jesus.  His shiny leg is flesh and yet I see stone shape and I feel strength and I understand what I am seeing is in comparison to any man-made thing or tower.  In essence ...there is no comparison!  I HEAR THE TITLE LOUD.....I AM Your Strong Tower! 
I am as small in size to Jesus as the small figures on the bottom of the painting.  I see Jesus---our YESHUA---- is standing on top of the waves.  The water is beautiful with waves evident that you can see through.  They are blue-green colored and are transparent with waves and foam in some areas. They are to the sides and in the distance behind Jesus.  New thing ----scripture from both covenants!
Jesus has one hand raised high (in the same position as the Statue of Liberty) and is holding or dropping to us the "KEYS TO THE KINGDOM" ...as they fall immediately I see the word liberty.    (insert...I am trying to share with you here exactly as I recorded it then...words on keys will be shared later) 
He has a beautiful kingly crown on His head that surpasses any earthly crown. My youngest son noticed it is a Menorah - I really wasn't able to bring across what I saw...It was a crown of light and yet tangible, like glass.  Behind Him are countless beautiful angels....very white and very beautiful.
Boats of people are coming towards Him.  Some people are also swimming, some are walking on the water also. 

(When redoing the web page after getting a new digital camera in 2007, I noticed that I have no where on this page about the boats going past Jesus and capsizing...see behind red letters under keys... So just know there was disaster for those who ignored and just sailed past Jesus...pursuing their own agenda.  The old file wasn't clear enough to see a lot of details.  Remember this painting is six feet tall in reality so it is hard to get it all on a little computer screen.  I am hoping you will have access to a great printer because this file is good and you should be able to make a nice print for yourself for free...be blessed.)

In this vision...He is so tall as to compare in size to us as we are to the statue of Liberty.
Behind Him on the left side in the upper corner is a storm with clouds and lightening.  I see the vague outline in the darkness of a city.
On the chest of Jesus is a Jewish prayer shawl coming down over His chest in a way I have not seen before, not the way normally worn or depicted in my earlier visions/paintings---(Here it is over one shoulder and then going around His waist a bit...blowing in the wind).  He is reaching out  with this hand to us with the palm facing up with the nail scar visible.
In the sky progressing from storm side to glory......the sky becomes filled with clouds of glory where angels are also in this.
The garment Jesus is wearing is the bright, white thick like 20 fold silk-linen I have seen Him wearing before in visions.  He wants me to bring that garment across and the glory of even His clothing as it billows around His body in the wind.
Scriptures (given then also during the first 24 hours)
Proverbs 18:10 (CJB)The name --Hashem- (means-the Name -compassionate one-in Hebrew, what Christians erroneously call the tetragrammaton...never pronounced aloud even when reading as the correct pronunciation has been lost as the vowel sounds are unknown)...The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous run to it and are saved!!!! 
James 1:6 Because he who doubts is like a wave tossed by the wind (beside body of man floating in wave----very small detail)
Mark 6:45  Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go ahead of him to Bethsaida, while He dismissed the crowd.  After leaving them he went up on the mountainside to pray.
When evening came, the boat was in the middle of the lake, and He was alone on land.  HE SAW the disciples "straining at the oars" because the wind was against them.  About the fourth watch of the night He went out to them....walking on the water.  They thought He was a ghost.  They cried out because they ALL saw Him and were terrified.
Immediately He spoke to them and said, "TAKE COURAGE!  IT IS I.  DON'T BE AFRAID." 
Matthew 14:28 (scripture beside the group of people walking to Jesus on the water) "Lord if it's you, Peter replied, "tell me to come to you ON the water."  "COME, HE SAID!"
Psalm 2:7  Let the assembled peoples gather around you.  Rule over them from on high.
Song of Songs 1...How right they are to adore you (up by the angels)
Genesis 26:24...Do not be afraid for I AM with you  (by the boats)
Mark 5:36   (By the men and women walking on the water)...."DON'T BE AFRAID, JUST BELIEVE"
Isaiah 6:3  (by the angels)  ...And they were calling to one another..."Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of His glory."
1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on Him,
Psalm 27:4  (by angels)   .....to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord.
Matthew 8;27 Even the wind and the waves obey Him.
Ephesians 4 :14  Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves (some people are sitting restfully on Jesus' feet) and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming.
Matthew 16;19  (up by the keys)   "I WILL GIVE YOU THE KEYS OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN; WHATEVER YOU BIND ON EARTH WILL BE BOUND IN HEAVEN, AND WHATEVER YOU LOOSE ON EARTH WILL BE LOOSED IN HEAVEN."
Revelation 3:7....these are the words of Him who is Holy and true...who holds the key of David.  What He opens no one can shut and what He shuts no one can open.
1 John 1:5....In Him there is no darkness at all.
John 3:19  This is the verdict:.... (under the storm)    Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light, because their deeds were evil.  Everyone who does evil hates the light, AND WILL  NOT COME INTO THE LIGHT FOR FEAR THAT his deeds will be exposed.  But WHOSOEVER....lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.
Around and on the keys are the words....liberty, freedom from sickness, freedom from death, freedom from pain, freedom from sadness, freedom from tears, freedom from depression, freedom from strife, freedom from jealousy, freedom from WAR
Song of Songs 6:10  (beside Jesus)    Who is this that appears like the dawn, fair as the moon, bright as the sun and majestic as the stars in procession?

I thought the painting was interesting in black and white because we can so easily see the light and the darkness...the light of Him and the angels... and the darkness of the storm in the back.  It  seems darker and the ship going down on the left side of the keys stands out more... 
If you pass by the Messiah, you are passing by hope.
She is a member of Ministers Fellowship International.Terri  is also the Healing Room Director for the Northgate Healing Room, affiliated with the  International Healing Room Ministries  headquartered in Spokane, Washington, directed by Cal and Michelle Pierce.  Terri has been on staff with the International Healing Room Ministries in the past as Graphics Department head and was a trainer for the ministry team for two years.  She believes Jesus Christ is the healer and all glory and honor belong to Him and by His stripes (Isaiah 53) we are healed. Jesus finished it all on the cross.  She blesses the work of the Healing Room Ministries and believes the revelation to come forth from that well has only just begun to flow.  
 
Terri and her husband Michael and sons moved from the East Coast to the West Coast in December of 2000.  They are members at Christian Life Church in Spokane, Washington under the direction of Pastors Barry & Kay Hill.    

She prays for the protection of Israel.  Terri rejects "Replacement Theology" and believes Israel has commands and mandates, such as the protection of original Hebrew scrolls intact and occupying the land itself, that "the church" isn't equipped or called to carry out- and yet The Almighty has never released Israel from these same commands.  

She does believe the promises to Israel also belong to the church because we have been grafted into the original olive tree and therefore, as scripture foretold, it has become possible for all nations to be blessed as Israel has been blessed, through our Messiah, Jesus.  

Terri's goal is to bring the message of our Messiah Jesus, His love, His hope, His joy, His peace, and His salvation to every nation on this earth.  She laughs in joy at what God has done with these paintings while she worships at His feet!  All things are possible through Christ Jesus and she wants to always be His friend.

This is a passover song...asking "Why is this night like no other night?...these words we ask our children each year during the Pesach meal.  I thought it was appropriate because Jesus Christ--our Yeshua (Yahoshua ha Maschiach) really did die on passover (Yochanan 13) as the ultimate passover lamb... The Almighty applied His blood to our hearts (when we accept Him as Messiah) so now we too are passed over by the angel of death and have the chance of everlasting life.   (Remember there is LIFE in the blood, Deut 12:23-24, D'Varim) Jesus was resurrected 3 days later, walked the earth for forty more days and then was seen ascending into heaven by the emissaries.  The angels who remained after the ascension spoke to those watching and said He will return in the same way He left you (in the clouds). Acts 1-11
  He will return a second time - next as the ruling King. This second time is spoken of in
 Yesha 'Yahu - Isaiah 11(10&11).  He is coming to reclaim the remnant.
