Visions From God

Updated on March 25, 2016

God works in many mysterious ways. There are miracles all around us but yet oftentimes we are not listening. We are listening to the noise of the world. One little girl is tuned in - tuned in to God and delivering amazing pieces of art showcasing the beauty and majesty of God. Hear this young girl's story directly from her and her Mother. See her artwork and contemplate the love of God.

Jesus Painting

"He told her that she needs to paint and help the less fortunate. He also noted that he’d be there to guide her along the way."

— God

About Akiane Kramarik from Wikipedia

Akiane Kramarik was born on July 9, 1994, in Mount Morris, Illinois to a Lithuanian mother and an American father.[4] Her education began at a public school but she was later homeschooled.[2]

Lost Years of Jesus

She is a self-taught painter. She states that God spoke to her when she was four years old, encouraging her to draw and paint her visions.[5] Her parents were atheists at the time (they later converted to Christianity because of Kramarik's paintings and visions).[citation needed] She began to draw at the age of four, advanced to painting at six, and began to write poetry at seven. Her first completed self-portrait sold for US$10,000.[5] Kramarik donates a portion of the revenue from art sales to charities.[6]

Moses Saw the Back of God

Remember in the Bible, in Exodus 33:23 when Moses saw the back of God? Just being able to see the back of God - just the back was a major miracle.

Imagine being able to see Christ - what an amazing experience. And this miracle continues as we are allowed to see what Akriane sees. She has expertly recreated the face of Jesus. Her artwork is a living miracle, a living reminder for the believers of Jesus Christ.

If Akriane were elderly and had years of experience and skills, we might not be as amazed. To be able to craft a masterpiece with the feelings her paintings evoke is a gift from God to all of us - and this gift is provided by Akriane, a young Lithuanian girl residing in a small town in the Midwestern United States. This unassuming little girl is surprising to the world and also to me in a manner not unlike a carpenter whom many of us believe in and love dearly.

Painting Jesus and Heaven - Artist Akiane

God's Light Shines Through Akiane

A young girl raised by an atheist draws her inspiration directly from God. The video is inspirational but the paintings are breathtaking.

The video from CNN interviews the young artist and her Mother. This gifted young artist is named Akiane Kramarik.

Watching her in the video is even more interesting because you can see God's light shine directly from her.

Listening to her personal relationship with God and her visions of heaven and its colors is fascinating and very inspiring.

Akiane states that she met God when she was just 3. "He told her that she needs to paint and help the less fortunate. He also noted that he’d be there to guide her along the way."

Another inspiring fact: Akiane is not a product of her home life. her mother is an Atheist and her father a recovering Catholic. On top of that she is home schooled! Showcasing how God can intervene. We don't have to be a product of our environment if we listen for the words of God.

Cast your cares upon the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.

— Bible Psalms 55:22

The Obstacles

  • Self taught
  • Artistic prodigy
  • Home schooled
  • Daughter of Atheist
  • Daughter of recovering Catholic
  • Concept of God never discussed at home
  • Small Midwestern town in Illinois

Obstacles in Life Don't Separate Us from God

My take away on this is simple -the obstacles we encounter in life - whether work, family, education are nothing compared to the love that God offers us. Earthly obstacles cannot separate from us God.

Her Story

  • Visits to heaven
  • Millions of colors
  • Way is mysterious
  • God became part of her daily life
  • God became part of her family life
  • God looks to me in bold light
  • Talent extends to music composition
  • God is explaining himself to her

Drawing Heaven

Once, according to an article in New Connexion magazine, Akiane was staring off into space, with a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eyes. Asked what she was doing, she simply answered, "I was with God again, and He told me to pray continually. He showed me where He lived. I was climbing transparent stairs; underneath I saw gushing waterfalls, and as I was approaching Him, His body was pure and intense light.

Heaven is for Real Movie Connection

Heaven Is for Real (2010) and the identically titled film (2014). Kramarik is referenced in the film as the "young Lithuanian girl" and is shown with her painting at the beginning and the end of the movie.[11]

Do you believe heaven is for real?

Young Lithuanian Girl Mentioned in Heaven is for Real

Another fascinating item is the mention of Akiane Kramarik in the movie Heaven is for Real.

The Heaven is for Real movie was about a boy who died and came back and detailed his time in Heaven. The little boy's name was Colton and he was the son of a preacher. What is also interesting is the term "near-death" is not really "near". Here is a better explanation:

A near-death experience occurs when a person – child or adult – actually experiences physical death and is brought back to life either spontaneously or through medical intervention. The name is a bit misleading, since it does not mean someone, like Colton, who is critically ill and near death. It means someone who has actually died and then returned to life.

Heavenly Blessings Here on Earth

Whatever your beliefs are today, were yesterday or will be tomorrow, the fact remains that the paintings of Akiane Kramarik are truly magnificent pieces of art. Music and art are often masterpieces and completed in a very short amount of time, I believe, because they are from the hand of God.

Only God can create the heavens, only God created the earth and therefore the miracles in art, miracles in verse are gifts direct from God.

What are your beliefs? Have you called upon God? God is always ready to listen. It is us humans who fail to see and hear him.

Ask for God and he will be with you.

For the spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.

— Bible Timothy 1:7
