 "The Lord and me in heaven"
-- C.V., girl, age 8 at the time
Based on a dream she once had.

On June 14, 2006, "She had a dream in which she was lifted up to heaven and then she saw these pearly white gates with gold streets. Then she saw Jesus on His throne with both angels.  And there were jewels on his throne just like she saw in a previously recorded dream.  And then she said, 'Jesus, this must be a wonderful place to live.  Can you show me heaven?'  So then he took her down the hall and she saw these beautiful rooms and she said, 'Wow, God!  Thank you for showing me your beautiful home.'" -- Daddy's journal.

On June 17, 2002, "Today she told me she had a dream about Jesus.  She saw him 'up in the heaven,' and he was 'in her house.'  The Lord kissed her on the forehead and told her he loves her." -- Daddy's journal.

"It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal." (Rev 21:11)

"The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, the fifth onyx, the sixth ruby, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth turquoise, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of gold, as pure as transparent glass." (Rev 21:18-20)

"Before the Lord on His throne"
-- C.V., girl, age 7 at the time
Based on a dream she once had.

On June 14, 2006, "She said she had a dream the previous night where she saw Jesus in heaven.  He was sitting on a golden throne.  On the back of the throne over his head, it had three arches with a single, beautiful diamond set into each arch.  The diamonds in the two side arches were about one inch in diameter, but the one in the middle arch over his head was huge (maybe 2 inches in diameter).  She said that the one in the middle represented Jesus.  And there were a lot of people there sitting at the table and they were eating.  She said there were thousands of them, and she was not sure what they were eating." -- Daddy's journal.

On June 10, 2005, "She told me she had a dream last night that she went up to heaven.  She dreamed about being caught up from the earth and going up in the sky.  Afterward she was in heaven where Jesus was on the throne and all the angels were praising Him.  She said her heart was so white at that time and there was no darkness in it.  She said it made her feel so happy."-- Daddy's journal.

"After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.”  At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it. And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne." (Rev 4:1-3) 

"No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him." (Rev 22:3)

"And among the lampstands was someone like a son of man, dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest." (Rev 1:13)

"I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty;
    the whole earth is full of his glory.” (Is 6:1b-3)

"Lady Going up to Heaven"
-- F.R., girl, age 11

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus." (1Th 4:14)

"Talking with the Fish"
-- F.R., girl, age 11

Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb," (Rev 22:1)

"Mansion in Heaven"
-- F.R., girl, age 11
"If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also." (Joh 14:3)

"Playing in the Garden"
-- F.R., girl, age 11
"If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also." (Joh 14:3)

 "Heavenly Mansion Tour"
F.R., girl, age 11
"If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also." (Joh 14:3)

-- C.R., boy, age 8

"Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations." (Rev 22:1-2)

In a dream, C.R. went to heaven for a visit.  He and two of his sisters, F.R. and H.R. were all servants of the Lord there.  They were carrying things to the Lord that He needed.  He saw F.R. bringing something to the Lord on a tray. Jesus was really shiny and heaven was very bright.  The mansions were really tall like skyscrapers.  They were rectangular with windows.  The throne was gold, and so were all the buildings and streets.  This gold was crystal clear like a mirror.  Out of the side of his eye he could see the river of life, which was a really nice blue color, with the trees of life growing along both of its banks.  The river was running down the middle of the street. The trees were green, and there may have been fruit on them. The branches of the trees hung out over the river, not quite touching the branches of the trees on the other side of the river.  He could hear the sound of the rushing water in the river.

"A Dream I Had"
-- C.R., boy, age 8

On February 13, 2012, at age six, C.R. prayed, “Lord please give me a dream of You!” He lay down, and after he went to sleep he had a dream.  In the dream he saw a picture right in front of his eyes.  In the picture, he saw the back of himself in a room, facing away and looking at Jesus, who was standing before him, facing him and looking at C.R.  Jesus did not look like a person, but like a round, bright white light.  Behind Jesus in the room were four people, who were rather short.  They all had black hair and squinted, oriental eyes like Chinese people.  Two of them were wearing conical, Chinese coolie, straw hats like the rice farmers wear, which are pointed at the top.  Behind the people was a stone staircase without a railing, which ascended to the right, and at the top it turned.  It was a still picture, like a photograph, so nothing was moving.  It was a scene.

Author's note:  You can find more art in this blog's directories for the Young Ladies of God Gallery and the Children of God Gallery.  I also recommend visiting my children's blog, Verses to the King, where you will also find beautiful poetry they have written for the glory of God.

This blog is managed and maintained by my fifteen-year old daughter, C.V., under my training, direction, and guidance with a bit of assistance occasionally.  She collaborates with her siblings (her fellow artists), then she creates digital representations of the art – through scanning or photography, crops it, organizes it, uploads it, creates the gallery rooms, organizes them, adds accompanying text (including Scriptures selected for their art), and publishes them to the web.  She is learning responsibility, teamwork, administrative skills, and computer skills -- including some HTML programming, a bit of graphic design, photography, website development, and website publishing.  In addition, this is a ministry that allows our children to lovingly share their artistic talents and the Scriptures with others, bringing glory to God through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Most importantly it leads them to meditate more on the Word of God.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
