Jon McNaughton released an amazing painting of Trump that has a very deep meaning. You have to check this out!
The famous American artist, Jon McNaughton is known for very patriotic and faith filled paintings. This one of president Trump is nothing short of that. He depicts the “forgotten men and women” who voted for Donald Trump; veterans, police officers, farmers and coal miners, among others.
There is a deep biblical meaning hidden in there too, see if you can spot it.
McNaughton, renowned for his patriotic and faith-based paintings, said in a video accompanying the painting’s release he initially wondered if he was going too far:
“When I decided to paint this picture, I wondered if this was taking it too far. But sometimes you have to speak forcefully like the brush strokes of my painting.
Many Americans have felt forgotten by the establishment in Washington. I’m talking about the people who are more interested in themselves and their political careers.”
As the video gave away, but I’ll explain it further… The biblical meaning can be seen at the bottom of the painting. President Trump is standing on the head of a serpent.
“I want a President that will crush the enemies of liberty, justice, and American prosperity. They may have the power to bruise his heel, but he will have the power to crush their head.” Mcnaughton explained of the serpent beneath Trump’s feet.
If you know the Bible you know that this is a reference to Genesis 3:14-15 after the serpent deceived Eve into eating the forbidden fruit:
So the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this,
“Cursed are you above all livestock
and all wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly
and you will eat dust
all the days of your life.
And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and hers;
he will crush your head,
and you will strike his heel.”
The “He” being spoken of in this verse is Jesus. The enemy will only bruise his heel when crucifying him but Jesus crushes the head of the serpent in the end by rising from the dead and creating hell just for satan.
So the point of the story?: Good will always prevail in the end!
