Visions of Heaven


Why I See What I See

As I came before my Creator, I looked around, and saw a few milling around in the throne room.  I saw the four creatures, or Seraphim, as one man millenia ago called them, but I didn’t see the ’24 elders’ yet another man saw centuries later.

“Why do you see what you see?”, God asked me.

A bit puzzled, I replied, “I’m not entirely sure.”

“You see what you see because it is for you to see.  It’s to prepare you to learn. The four creatures do what I made them to do. But I don’t need to see them. I don’t need crowds of jubilant creatures worshiping me day and night.  I don’t need 24 elders affirming my position.

“If you or someone I created were to sit upon this throne, that’s something you might need.  It would be affirmation that you were in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing.  But, since I created all this, I know that what I made is the right thing.

“So, be open to new things I might have you see.  Don’t limit your view of heaven by what you think it should look like.  You won’t be able to perceive the truth from that which your mind creates.

“For each person that comes here, from whatever place, or whatever time they come from, they see what they need to see at the moment.  They hear what they need to hear.

“Be open to what I have to show you, and be receptive to what others see and hear, and report in their stories.

“I love all of you, equally.”

“The four creatures you see before me represent a part of the animal kingdom.  They are similar to, but not exactly the same as those that are created with strong instinct.  They can learn beyond that instinct, but stay focused on me no matter what they feel as instinct, or what new things they might learn.  They always gaze upon me, never letting things distract them from me.”
