‘Heaven is for Real’ was inspired- #4 of 7

‘How can I say that the movie ‘Heaven is for Real’ was inspired by thoughts and comments I shared as a door greeter in the Hornell, NY, Walmart store?’

The question, “Have you seen any of these perfect people?  What do they look like?” from an individual who had heard my reasoning on the age of those in the heavens, leads to answer for the first question here, and caused me to respond emphatically, “NO!”

“So how would you describe them?,” was the following inquest.

My response was tinged with the tenor of hope and intrigue, “Adam and Eve were created, ‘male and female’ our creator made them.  And according to Genesis, they ‘were created in their image.'”

An emphatically nodding head, and an opening mouth caused me to pause.

While my customer spoke, “There are males and females in heaven?”

“That’s just my reasoning on the scriptures I shared with you.”

“So how would you describe people in heaven?”

My answer in accord with the descriptions shared by author Ava D. Dohn, in Sisters of the Bloodwind came out in accord with this comment, “I’m familiar with descriptions of some who have envisioned heaven and the people there but you can read those descriptions for yourself.”

“Is there a description of Jesus?”

“Yes.”

“So describe Jesus for me?”

“You are probably imagining Jesus as dark haired, lean, but strong, with dark eyes, and being male?  Aren’t you?” was my responding inquiry.  In a desire to insight more inquiry, as so not to offend, I also asked, “What do you think? Now remember Jesus came to earth, as Mary’s child, but returned to the original home in the heavens, so doesn’t necessarily look like what pictures all show,” was my hopefully thought provoking response.

The comment returned was a softly questioning, “Blond . . .”.

And the hesitating response and my excitement caused me to burst out, That’s right.”  But after a small pause continued with, “You’re right, at least that’s how the book I’ve read describes the Messiah.”

In response to my excitement the comment came, “You know in Italy Jesus is shown in some churches as blond?”

“I thought I heard that . . .” and we continued on discussing multiple topics.

Last year, 2013 while taking a semester abroad I visited a couple of churches that displayed Jesus as blond.  And at a religious edifice in Naples, seen on a class field trip in January, Mary with baby Jesus were both displayed with golden blond hair.  So a blond Jesus isn’t really that abnormal, it’s just uncommon here in the U.S. with our Puritan and Latin American religious background.

According to  online and radio descriptions about the ‘Heaven is for Real’ movie Jesus is a blond that also has blue-green eyes, and this is something specifically said by me in a conversation somewhere between 2008 to 2010.

The movie ‘Heaven is for Real’ guides me- #3 of 7

I’m not writing here to take glory from the film, but my experiences cause me to see a lot and encourage a need to empower others in seeing more.  And truthfully what I share here is in accord with my line of thought, because the book I mention sometimes is one the author doesn’t want religious people to buy for religion.  But I share how much more I’ve fallen in love with the heavens and the people I relate to because of that book.

I never recollect exactly what has happened, but the movie ‘Heaven is for Real’continues to guide me through memories I’m giving here.  This along with a belief that sharing with others my love of God added to the love from reading Ava D. Dohn’s books, starting with the Sisters of the Bloodwind, a fiction, and its harmony in accord with the Bible helps me believe my distribution, of love and knowledge, helped inspire this movie.

One of the persons I had shared some beliefs with previously questioned me about heaven.

And I responded, “Well I think it’s very similar to earth, at least the home planet is. But I also believe that because everyone in the heavens is way older than us, they have traveled beyond the home planet into the universe of that realm, and its varying planets.”

“That’s profound, but could it be real?,” was the curious but slightly heated curious tone of the response.

Male + Female he created themSo continuing on with my reasoning based on words previously shared in this blog, I said, “Just consider what scripture in Genesis says, ‘We are created in their image,’ it continues relating that Adam and Eve sinned, were thrown out of the garden, but before that happened they were perfect. Just think about it, this happened at the beginning of human history, but the record in the Bible says that Methuselah lived to be ‘969’ years old, and Adam lived after sinning 930 n- some years. According to my reasoning, the people in the heavens are older than us, and we are created in their image, this then means there are many if not all who are older than the earth itself.”

“That makes sense,” was the curiously investigative trend of response.

This caused me to continue with words, similar to the following, “That also means that we ‘male and female’ are created like them, then these perfect people, un-ageing, and very educated at least with age, are much more than basic glo-globs’s of power and energy. For being perfect as a human means to me that I’m physically perfect, but I’m also myself, making mistakes, overthinking things, getting hurt because I just wasn’t being wise. Perfect as in my body repairs itself, doesn’t grow old, but does age at least with wisdom and experience.”

This response caused consideration to rise on the face of the person I was talking to. And in our vicinity were others who heard what was being said. And more questions ended up following.

Which lead me to the ‘Heaven is for Real’movie.
