Joy's Vision of Heaven
Joy had a vision in 2009 that was so strong she was shaking. The vision came to her in bits and pieces along with scripture. Her vision was of Heaven. When she first started getting the vision she commented God said His Kingdom.
Then she was given scripture Psalm 45:1 My heart is overflowing with a good theme; I recite my composition concerning the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. and later Psalm 20:5 We will rejoice in your salvation, And in the name of our God we will set up our banners! May the Lord fulfill all your petitions.
Joy told me that God is in heaven but you don't see His throne. He is so huge you couldn't see His throne. There is an Ora all around and a scepter of rightiousness in his right hand. Angels and Charubs all around Him. His robe filled the whole place. Jesus is on the right side standing but stepped out almost out of Gods robe like He was stepping out to do something. There were 24 thrones, 12 on each side of God. The River of life flowing from His robe. There were people facing God praising, praying on their knees, dancing and raising their hands.
1 Chronicles 29:11-15 Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, The power and the glory, The victory and the majesty; For all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, And You are exalted as head over all. Both riches and honor come from You, And You reign over all. In Your hand is power and might; In Your hand it is to make great And to give strength to all. Now therefore, our God, We thank You And praise Your glorious name. But who am I, and who are my people, That we should be able to offer so willingly as this? For all things come from You, And of Your own we have given You. For we are aliens and pilgrims before You, As were all our fathers; Our days on earth are as a shadow, And without hope. Psalm 22:27-31 All the ends of the world Shall remember and turn to the Lord, And all the families of the nations Shall worship before You. For the Kingdom is the Lord's, And He rules over the nations. All the prosperous of the earth Shall eat and worship; All those who go down to the dust Shall bow before Him, Even he who cannot keep himself alive. A posterity shall serve Him. It will be recounted of the Lord to the next generation, They will come and delclare His righteousness to a people who will be born, That He has done this. Psalm 45:6 Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom. Psalm 145:8-9 The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and great in mercy. The Lord is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works. Psalm 97:2 Clouds and darkness surround Him; Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.
When Joy completed her bits and pieces of visions she then was placed to see the whole vision at once. She was then told "Now go find an artist to paint it" When she told me that, the hair on my arms raised up and I got a chill.
This vision was on my mind for several years. I kept trying to figure out how in the world I would be able to capture all of heaven when I really don't know what it looked like. I didn't have the vision, Joy did. I tried two times on canvus board just to see if I could get a dreamy like image but it wasn't right.
This year, before I stopped teaching art classes, I was prepairing a class using black canvus. That's when I realized how to do it. I got in touch with Joy on some of the details but she couldn't remember anymore and she wasn't sure where her journal was on the account. I went to Revelation 4 about the Throne Room of Heaven. I included the tree of life. Not sure if it was in the vision but I know it is up there.
I began with acrylic July 24th of this year 2015 until I had enough detail and knew exactly what I was looking for. I began putting on oils October 9th.
One day I was sitting in my chair in the living room and it was as though God put into my head to use the metalic powders I have for the painting to give it a mystical heavenly glow. So I did a finish coat with Liquin and metalic powder. Sometimes I would add the powder with the oil color I was painting on top of. After approximately 68 hours I completed the painting on November 4th, 2015.
The four heads in the clouds (four living creatures) represent Jesus. Lion - of Judah; Ox - Servent; Man - Son of Man and Eagle - Eternal Word
Keep your eyes opened for my next Dream & Vision of The Day of The Lord.
