Brenda Angel’s Testimony
The power of seeing this sculpture is exemplified through the following testimony of Brenda Angel, whose name means “A fire brand who works with clay as a messenger of God covering the land.” The following occurred in the fall of 1992:
“God gave me a dream of Jesus on the Cross. He took me up into the air and I watched the crucifixion of our Lord as dark clouds were rolling overhead. With His hair whipping in a violent wind, and as He yelled out “E’li, E’li la’ ma sa-bach tha-ni’?”, everything became completely black and I would awaken in my room. Then God would speak to me and tell me to sculpt what He had just shown me. I had never sculpted anything before and I did not know anything about sculpture. As this happened night after night, every day I would try to find out where to buy clay. Finally, the last night that I had the dream after awaking in my room, I could still see Jesus’ face. I fell down on my bed crying with my eyes closed and could still see Jesus. That vision stayed with me and it was on that day that I was able to obtain some clay. Within days I had completed a bust of Jesus from the waist up. This first piece, once bronzed, was donated to my church.
God has continued to place sculptures in my heart and spirit when I am praying or reading His Word. I hope that you seriously consider this sculpture, and the miracle it is that I was able to sculpt it. Selah.
The following are a few scriptures that God has given to me pertaining to my this part of the calling on my life. The first He gave me several years prior to my dream and sculpture. I had asked Him what it meant on several occasions. As I sculpted for the first time it was obvious:
”Now as they observed the confidence of Peter and John and understood that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed, and began to recognize them as having been with Jesus.”
“I have filled him with the Spirit of God in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all kinds of craftsmanship, to make artistic designs for work in gold, in silver, and in bronze, and in the cutting of stones for settings, and in the carving of wood, that he may work in all kinds of craftsmanship.”
