The Obama Portraits Tour (April 3–May 30, 2022)(Nisan 1- Sivan 1) | The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

Barack Obama’s Presidential Portrait: The Serpent from the Garden of Eden! (Videos)

Barack Obama’s presidential portrait solidifies exactly what he himself stated on ABC Daytime’s morning chat with The View. When asked “What are We, Who are We?” Obama replies:

“Well, we are Americans, we share common hopes, we share common dreams, we share common aspirations; we’re going through common struggles. And the fact of the matter is, that everybody here (and I look at this audience as representative of the country) – everybody here is connected in some fashion and our success and our children’s success is tied up together and so I think most American’s feel that way. But, what is still true is that there’s still kind of a reptilian side of our brain. That part of our brain – that if somebody looks different or sounds different – that there’s a part of us that is cautious. And what we have to do is fight against that.” – Barack Obama

The Obama Portraits Tour comes to the MFAH after premiering at the Art Institute of Chicago in June 2021 and traveling to the Brooklyn Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. Following the Houston presentation, the tour continues to the de Young Museum in San Francisco and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

The two paintings present a striking contrast to the formality of earlier presidential portraits and images of first ladies. Through the presentation of these now-iconic works by Wiley and Sherald, the exhibition contemplates how portraiture has given visual form to ideas of power, identity, status, and legacy throughout history.

The Obama Portraits Tour is expected to reach millions of people who might not otherwise have an opportunity to view these remarkable paintings. In addition to the paintings themselves, the exhibition features audio-visual elements and educational programs. This special presentation enhances conversations surrounding the power of portraiture and its potential to engage communities.

The 44th president of the United States arrived on Saturday, and is expected to be on-Island for much of August, according to multiple sources. Throughout his presidency, Obama and his family took summer holidays on the Vineyard, and showed a fondness for Chilmark.

After leaving office, Obama continued to vacation in Chilmark with his family. Golfing, bicycling, and visiting some of the Island’s restaurants are among the president’s August pastimes on-Island. On Sunday he reportedly dined at the Red Cat in Oak Bluffs.

Meaning of the Name Martha

The name Martha is translated, in Hebrew, as mistress or myrrh. It comes from the verb מרר (marar), to be bitter or strong. The name Martha means “Lady Boss”, “Mistress”, or “Land Lady”

Judges 9:8-15
New King James Version
8 “The trees once went forth to anoint a king over them.
And they said to the olive tree,
‘Reign over us!’
9 But the olive tree said to them,
‘Should I cease giving my oil,
With which they honor God and men,
And go to sway over trees?’

10 “Then the trees said to the fig tree,
‘You come and reign over us!’
11 But the fig tree said to them,
‘Should I cease my sweetness and my good fruit,
And go to sway over trees?’

12 “Then the trees said to the vine,
‘You come and reign over us!’
13 But the vine said to them,
‘Should I cease my new wine,
Which cheers both God and men,
And go to sway over trees?’

14 “Then all the trees said to the bramble,
‘You come and reign over us!’
15 And the bramble said to the trees,
‘If in truth you anoint me as king over you,
Then come and take shelter in my (E)shade;
But if not, let fire come out of the bramble
And devour the cedars of Lebanon!’

1260 Day Count from April 2nd/3rd – Oct 20, 2018 – Trump Plans to Tear Up a 31-Year-Old Nuclear Weapons Treaty. Now What?

President Donald Trump revealed Saturday the United States intends to withdraw from a 31-year-old nuclear weapons agreement with Russia, delivering a severe blow to the arms control regime that helped preserve peace since the Cold War.

“We’re going to terminate the agreement and we’re going to pull out,” Trump told reporters after a rally in Elko, Nevada, without indicating what the next steps might be.

The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, first signed by President Ronald Reagan and Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev in December 1987, was the first and only nuclear arms control agreement that ever eliminated an entire class of nuclear weapons. The treaty forced the superpowers to scrap more than 2,600 missiles with ranges 310 to 3,420 miles — weapons considered destabilizing to the European continent because of their capability to launch a nuclear strike from anywhere without early warning.

The Tribulation is commencing…

Please repent, carry your cross daily and accept the free gift of Jesus Christ’s Death on the Cross for payment for your sins.
