She Was 8 When She Saw Heaven

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 16, 2012

Many people have been fascinated with the drawings from child art prodigy, Akiane Kramarik , who says her inspiration has come from heavenly dreams.

AkianesJesusAkiane was only eight years old when she painted this portrait of Jesus, called Prince of Peace. Today, ChurchInHeavenshe is now seventeen, having spent her childhood having visions. and painting and dictating/writing poetry from age four. Her mother was an atheist, her father a lapsed Catholic. Akiane’s gifts seemingly started out of the blue, with no coaching or lessons. She’s a self-taught artist, home-schooled, raised in poverty, and eventually, through her paintings and visions, she helped convert her entire family to Christianity. You can view more of her work here.

Akiane was once asked what she would say to God if she could ask him just one question and he would answer, and she said she would ask him what the purpose of extreme suffering is. But, I think we all know what the answer would be, at least on some level. This world was never meant to be our permanent home.

We were created to be more than we are because God is more than this world. It is like C.S. Lewis StGeorgeChurchAddissaid – “You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.” Sometimes, when we suffer here in this world, it is our own doing, but more often than not, it’s out of our hands. But this life is just for a little while. We are on loan to this world. That doesn’t mean that we should not help make it a better place. We definitely should – otherwise, what is the point? We could sit on our hands all day, refusing to care, refusing to help, or we can make our lives mean something. I choose meaning. I choose hope. Hope is what Akiane wants people to come away with after viewing her artwork, after reading her poetry, after reading about her childhood and her life as it is now. That is what I strive to embody with my own life as well, through my writing and also through compassion for others. We may feel completely alone sometimes, but all we have to do is reach out and grasp somebody’s hand (physically or even spiritually). We are not alone. We just have to stop acting as if we are, that’s all. She said.


A self-taught painter was never raised religiously, although her parents have become religious through her paintings. She says

she is inspired from above and paints pictures of her alleged visits to heaven. Perhaps, The Almighty called on her to be a witness.

The part of the video that caught my attention was the portrait of Jesus, and the architecture of the church in heaven – very similar to some of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo churches.

ልጂቱ የታያት ገነታዊ የቤተክርስቲያን ህንፃ፡ ቅጥርግቢውን ጨምሮ፡ አንዳንድ የአገራችንን ዓብያተክርስቲያናት ይመስላል። በተጨማሪ የሳለቸውን የክርስቶስ ምስል (ከቅላቱ በቀር) ከሚመስል ከአንድ ዘመዴ ጋር በቅርቡ ተገናኝቼ ነበር፤ እርሱም አንድ ልዩ ወደ ሆነ መንፈሳዊ ቦታ እንድሄድ ጠቁሞኝ ህይወት ለዋጭ የሆነ ነገር ሊገጥመኝ ችሏል፡ የሚገርም አጋጣሚ ነው።

Radio Host Says God Didn’t Protect Kids in Shooting Because We’ve Told ‘God to Get Lost’

My note: Hurricane ‘Sandy’ left New York with scores of untold tragedies, and now. this heartbreaking, unspeakable tragedy at ‘Sandy’ Hook Elementary School. In ancient Greece, Sandy, short for Cassandra, is a mythological figure who epitomizes tragedy. But, the little ones are in heaven!

Evangelical radio host Bryan Fischer is under fire after comments he uttered today during his American Family Association radio program. His statements, made in reference to today’s horrific school shooting in Connecticut, raised some eyebrows, particularly among liberal groups who view them as insensitive and wrong-headed. Mediaite HYPERLINK “” has a recap:

Christian radio hostBryan Fischer took to his American Family Association radio show this afternoon to say that God didn’t stop the horrific Connecticut elementary school shooting spree because he does not go “where he is not wanted.”

Fischer made the case that, in his mind, God would have protected the shooting victims had there been a system of school prayer and a respect for the Ten Commandments in public classrooms.

Don’t let your child see a psychiatrist. Ever!

PhychoDemonThe government gives psychiatry its fake legitimacy. That’s how the game works. The government blesses the medical licensing boards that award psychiatrists permission to drug your children, alter their brains, poison them, and of course make all the fake diagnoses in the first place.

Without the government, these fakes would sink into the waves and be gone forever. Nobody in his right mind or wrong mind would ever step into a psychiatrist’s office. It would be like volunteering to stumble out on to a mine field seeded with explosives.

Self-Inflation at the Expense of Sacred Psychiatry Disorder. The preferred treatment is electroshock therapy and MKULTRA re-programming. I’m opting for a walk in the park coupled with two doses of outrage at these fake doctors who poison brains and believe they’re healers.

Media, naturally, go along with the psychiatric hoax. Thousands of articles keep coming out of the hopper to support the authoritative pronouncements of these deranged monsters with medical degrees and “training” in diagnosing mental illnesses.

There are no mental illnesses or disorders. There never have been.

There are people with problems, there are people who suffer, there are people who are in desperate circumstances, there are people who have severe nutritional deficiencies, there are people who have been poisoned by various chemicals, there are people who have been abused and ignored, there are people who have been told there is something wrong with them, there are people who are different and can’t deal with the conforming androids in their midst, but there are no mental disorders.


It’s fiction. It’s a billion-dollar fiction. It’s a gigantic steaming pile of bullshit. Always has been.

There is not a single diagnostic test for any so-called mental disorder. Never has been. No blood test, no urine test, no saliva test, no brain scan, no genetic test. No science.

So why hasn’t psychiatry been destroyed and outlawed? Because there is money in it. Big money. Pharmaceutical money. And because the public is in a trance. Mothers and fathers are quite willing to take their children to these brain poisoners…lambs to the slaughter.

The silence of the lambs

People are entranced by so-called professionals with fancy degrees who speak technical babble. It all seems real. Because if it weren’t real, then…what? People would be forced to admit they are living in a fantasy. And people don’t want to admit that. They would rather die than admit that.
