40 Beautiful Harry Potter Art and Illustration Tributes

 

All good thing must come to an end. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 is finally in theaters, and is the last film we will ever see. J.K. Rowling’s fantasy series has played a huge role in peoples lives. Adulthood of childhood, Harry appealed to the masses. With a great story line and a never ending action, this phenomenon will be strongly missed. In order to tribute the series we have collected some incredible fan based artworks.

Most of the following pieces were collected from Gallery Nucleus. For the last 2 years, the works were collected from fan submission on their Harry Potter blog. Here’s what the blog’s intro states: “Although the movies have done a tremendous job in the manner of visual depiction, many artists and readers alike, have had their own vision of the Harry Potter world. This Blog hopes to be a platform for those visions as well as new concepts that further builds upon that world while paying homage through illustration to the epic tale that has touched the imaginations of so many readers.” The fan base Harry Potter has attributed is massive, and is apparently very creative. Check out the following fantastic fan art!

Note: Every single author is credited for their work. We do not take credit for any of the following works.

The Fear of the Lord

Throughout the Old Testament we find a frequent command given to the people of God; “fear God” or “fear the Lord.” As followers of Jesus it is important for us to know what “the fear of the Lord” means to us. As we truly fear the Lord we will find that we will be delivered from every other kind of fear.

These are the commands, decrees, and regulations that the Lord your God commanded me to teach you. You must obey them in the land you are about to enter and occupy, and you and your children and grandchildren must fear the Lord your God as long as you live. If you obey all his decrees and commands, you will enjoy a long life. (Deuteronomy 6:1-2)
What does it mean to “fear the Lord”?

The biblical command to “fear the Lord” will enter into many different areas of our lives. Foundational to our “fear of the Lord” is our sincere realization that God is absolutely holy, absolutely just and absolutely righteous in the same way that “God is love” (1 John 4:8) and that His mercy is from everlasting to everlasting (Psalm 103:17).

When we know Him and understand who He is we understand that because He is holy it is His very nature that causes Him to judge sin. We fear the Lord when we feel holy awe and reverence because of His glory, greatness, power and majesty. As believers in Christ it is both the love of God and the fear of the Lord that causes us to place our faith in Him alone for salvation. It is this fear of the Lord that produces in our hearts a confident hope and trust in Jesus. It is our realization of the greatness of God that causes us to humble ourselves, repent of our sins and receive the forgiveness, love and mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ. As we fear the Lord we understand that the holiness of God demands judgment for sin. Throughout the Old and New Testaments we read of the penalties for sin for those who do not repent. The blood of Jesus Christ was payment for all of our sins. Our condemnation will be found if we refuse to believe.
There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil. (John 3:18-19)

It was the holiness of God that demanded a sacrifice for sins. It was the love of God that caused Jesus Christ to offer Himself as that sacrifice so that He may take away the sins of the world. It is a fearful thing to consider ourselves before the throne of God without the blood of Jesus Christ. The New Testament drives this point home very clearly.

It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. (Hebrews 10:31)
 
I am a believer in Christ. Why should I fear the Lord?

The fear of the Lord goes beyond doctrine; it directly applies to our daily lives in many different ways. If we truly fear the Lord, we will live a life of obedience to His commands and say “No” to sin. One of the reasons that God inspired fear among the Israelites at Mount Sinai was so that they would turn away from sin and obey His law.

“Don’t be afraid,” Moses answered them, “for God has come in this way to test you, and so that your fear of him will keep you from sinning!” (Exodus 20:20)

The overwhelming awesomeness of the presence of God was revealed to the nation of Israel at Mount Sinai. God had not come to make them afraid but to reveal His greatness and His holiness. Our understanding of how awesome and powerful the God we serve is should inspire a holy fear. His willingness to adopt us into His family, forgive us of our sins and fill us with His Spirit should provide a fear in our lives that keeps us in our relationship with God. This fear of the Lord is not a fear of judgment, nor is it a fear of His anger. The believers’ fear of the Lord is founded upon the awesomeness of grace. God, who formed the universe, hung on a cross for our sins; when my brain tries to comprehend the greatness of this act I am filled with holy fear. The enormity of God’s love for us is so far beyond our ability to comprehend it that it produces in us the fear of the Lord. For those of you who have not read it, please pick up a copy of John Bevere’s “The Fear of the Lord: Discover the Key to Intimately Knowing God“. John spends over 200 pages on this subject and the revelation of the fear of the Lord will cause your love for God and relationship with Him to grow. I recommend it highly. Here are some famous Old Testament scriptures on the fear of the Lord:

Fear of the Lord is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment. (Proverbs 9:10) And this is what he says to all humanity: ‘The fear of the Lord is true wisdom; to forsake evil is real understanding.’ (Job 28:28) Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. (Proverbs 1:7) Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true wisdom. All who obey his commandments will grow in wisdom. (Psalm 111:10)

Here are some famous New Testament scriptures on the fear of the Lord:

Dear friends, you always followed my instructions when I was with you. And now that I am away, it is even more important. Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear. For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. (Philippians 2:12-13) That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.” (Luke 2:8-12) But even as he spoke, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy. Listen to him.” The disciples were terrified and fell face down on the ground. Then Jesus came over and touched them. “Get up,” he said. “Don’t be afraid.” (Matthew 17:5-7)

The King James Version of Philippians 2:12 states, “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling”. The Apostle Paul, whose message of grace and faith still has room for fear and trembling. This holy fear and awe is not a destructive fear, but a redeeming fear that leads us to God and not away from Him. This fear of the Lord is not based on terror but on the awesomeness of God. It is the fear of the Lord that leads us to a morally pure life. It is the fear of the Lord that causes us to draw close to Him and as we draw close to Him we are overwhelmed by His nearness, His blessing and His salvation.

Conclusion

God is so much greater than our imaginations and so much greater than our physical faculties can comprehend. The perfection of God, the holiness of God, the nature of God, the love of God and the grace of God when considered should produce in us a reverential fear that causes us to truly bow in humility at what we are offered when scripture says, “And anyone who believes in God’s Son has eternal life. Anyone who doesn’t obey the Son will never experience eternal life but remains under God’s angry judgment.” (John 3:36) Jesus is our connection to the Father and we have no other way of getting to Him. It is this gift of salvation; it is this gift of grace that causes us to fear the Lord.

Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. (John 15:5)

My passion is to educate and provoke Christians to fulfill the calling of God on their lives (which is always tied to the fulfillment of the Great Commission). I have been known to offend with bluntness and sarcasm, but normally it happens by telling the truth people do not want to hear or be reminded of.  The motivation behind it is to provoke people to become more like Jesus and live the faith they profess to have.

Businesses Lose Money Because of Web Designer’s: New Book Tells Small Business Owners How to Take Back Control

Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) September 18, 2005

Tom Antion sits in his home at a large desk cluttered with books, pictures, telephones, computers, and an enormous amount of wiring talking on the phone and surfing the web. His small at-home office looks like a hurricane just hit it but he seems to know where everything is as he deftly juggles the phone and pulls several sheets of paper out from under a stack of books, rattling off income figures.

Tom says he expects to pull in over two million dollars in sales this year but happily points out that he “mostly just sits on his big butt.” It wasn’t always that easy, though. Several years ago, Tom found himself being held hostage by what he calls a “web artist,” (more commonly known as a web designer) someone he had hired to make him a profitable website, but who was obsessed over the look and graphical content of the site. “The site looked great,” Tom says, “but I only got 400 visitors in two years. The depression and shock that I felt upon discovering this was the best thing that ever happened to my career.”

Now, 7 years later, Tom is makes more money sitting on his rear end than going out and working for a living. He notices, though, that almost all small business owners with websites are having the same kinds of problems that he once experienced. “Their sites may look stellar,” he says with a chuckle, “but they’re getting less traffic than a convent in Las Vegas.” Tom’s face becomes suddenly serious as he says, “In today’s economic environment it is so important for the small businessperson to take advantage of every tool and technique available. I wrote this book so that I could share everything that I learned through my own experience with all the small business owners out there who are too busy to become as deeply involved with learning about websites as I am.”

Tom Antion’s book, “The Ultimate Guide to Electronic Marketing for Small Business,” is written with newcomers to internet design in mind. It lays down a foundation of basic skills before going on to more advanced techniques. If you want to learn more about Tom’s electronic marketing tricks call 1-757-431-1366.

6.       The death of his close friend and fellow peer in boxing compelled Pacquiao to strive for a professional career in boxing.

7.       Manny Pacquaio is a natural southpaw. However, recent opponents who have relied on this have reason to believe his right is also a force to be reckoned with. They have learned this mistake the hard way, usually while lying on the canvass.

8.       Pacman, as what he is fondly called, is also an eight division world champion. To be specific he has also won ten world titles in the eight different weight divisions. He is reportedly the first boxer in history to achieve this feat.

10.   Manny Pacquaio has attempted to delve into the movie business. However, the outcome of his movies where he is the star such as “Wapakman” did not fare well in the box office.

11.   Besides boxing, Manny Pacquaio also has interest in business and politics. For business, he has already established a chain of companies some of them under the initials of his name “MP”.

After the fight he is reported to have said ““Boxing is not for killing each other, you know.”

16.   Even at his height of only 5’6, Manny Pacquaio has defeated taller opponents. Some of them include Oscar de la Hoya and Antonio Margarito. Some of his taller opponents have been defeated by knockout.

17.   In one of Manny Pacquaio’s fights, he reportedly threw 1,231 punches. This translates to a whopping 100 punches per round. This was during his fight against Joshua Clottey.

23.   Psychologists and other social science practitioners have coined a term named the “Pacquaio Effect”. This effect is associated with the feeling of Filipino Nationalism that Filipinos feel when they watch Manny Pacquiao fight.

Manny will still achieve numerous, greater achievements that sports writers and sports enthusiasts all over the world will chronicle.
