Heaven Is For Real: Painting

A young boy emerges from life-saving surgery with remarkable stories of his visit to heaven.

Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn’t know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear.

Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how “reaaally big” God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit “shoots down power” from heaven to help us.

When the parents, upon discovery that Colton saw Jesus, pointed to modern pictures of Jesus saying, “How about this one?” only to be shot down by Colton’s critique. After a couple of years, they came across a young girl named Akiane who also claimed to have a vision of Christ and heaven. She was an artist and painted a picture of Jesus. Upon showing this to Colton, he said, “That is it! That is Jesus.” So, this is what Jesus really looks like according to Colton and Akiane Kramarik:

  1. please read! 2Cor5:1, Ooo! our God is faithfull

  2. Mike & Kathy Shelton says:

    heaven is real….Faith teaches us this and being believers assures us that when God is ready he alone will show is what’s to come or what we need to see. Age has no place I matters such as this yet time will tell us what god wants us to know. Seeing this movie before reading the book is more of an eye opener. Our prayers are with this family that God will keep them and strengthen them and continue to bless them as he has so many times before. And it is or prayer that this book or movie will be a blessing to all who view or read the book as it has been to us.

  3. The story of Heaven is real, and these two young people who experienced heaven and the Creator, fascinates me. Also it increases my faith, which is great! It also creates certain questions, for instance, knowing that the name of our Messiah was not and is not jesus, but Yahusha, I wonder if He shared this info. with either of them. Or any other wisdom that maybe in their younger years they didn’t understand or they forgot, but if they were reminded of it now, they may recall.

  4. In the bible jesus has long hair in the painting he has short hair and your spirit will rest until jesus comes back so how did he go to heaven

    • Dear Dylan, you should try actually reading the Bible! It does not say that Jesus had long hair! The boy who went to heaven did not die, guess you never read that book either. If you really want to know the truth, you will receive it. If you just want to believe what suits you, then you will do just that. God bless you. XXX

      Hi, Colton did not die and go to heaven, he was very sick and came as close as a person can though. He had a close relationship with god and was blessed by god. god came to him and showed him beautiful things, he met his sister and describe her, something he knew nothing of, he visit with his grandpa, again someone he never met. in this day and age he was chosen to take this remarkable, beautiful and amazing trip with jesus who showed him so many beautiful things, i for one am jelaus. my point is he came back with the knowledge of things he had no business knowing. god used this inoccent little boy who spoke so matter of fact, and spoke truths which were proved to show us and remind us he is real, he is great, good,loving.. He is coming back for his people sooner than we think and this was just his way of showing us just a tiny glimpse of how beautiful and peacefull hraven will be for the few who are living for god, and those who aen’t listen up to this children who have been there and allowed to come back and tell us that yes it is real, he is real. Get your heart right with god before its to late because before u know it it will be. open your eyes. read yout bible. this new war on terrorism, seria and russia being involved, the middle east being the one who is bring all these countries together who have nothing but hate for Israel, i challenge u read your bible… russia was called Moag in bible times, u can even look it up on google if u don’t knoiw your bible. BEWARE OF THE FALSE PROPHET> HE WILL COME AND PERFORM MIRICALESMANY WILL BE FOOLED> READ YOUR BIBLE…. JESUS TELLS US THIS IS WHATS GOING TO HAPPEN DO NOT BE TAKEN IN BY THIS IMPOSTER GOD WILL NOT TAKE THIS FOR LONG< IF U DO NOT TURN FROM THIS IMPOSTER AND TURN TO THE REAL MESIAH

  5. My father blew himself up in his home 7 years ago, he lived two streets over, he died in the indianapolis burn unit the next day, I grieved horribly for the first three years, I litterally lived at the graveyard, one night I had this dream my dad was standing there I said dad your stil alive, I see your shadow n then he was sitting saying no im gone now n you have to let me go n then I wad hugging his leggs telling him no I need you, then someone pulled me up n I was crying so hard dnot was running out of my nose n a man a beautifull man with blue puercing eyes n curly brown hair n he was wearing a ehite robe , held me n wiped my tears n my snot running down my face n said child please stop crying hes with me now n hes ok n you will see him again , please stop grieving n as I woke I cried n cried n as the next few days went by my sadness was gone, im not religous but I do believe in god n prayer n jesus n heaven, I believe that jesus came to me n helped me, thank you lord n thank you jesus for this childs paintings

  6. I see we have critics and supporters , as for me I can not comment on how Jesus looks like , I guess its coz I’m not adiquetly equipped when it come to the word of God . As for the movie I love it .

  7. He didn’t have long hair or a beard. It’s time to promote what He really looked like instead of the effeminate images started by Middle Age painters. The Bible also tells us that he would not have been extremely handsome as that would have distracted from his preaching. In addition having grown up a carpenter he would have been in good physical shape.

      i believe he looks what the person needs him to look like. i believe he can take on many form. whatever will put that person at ease, not be scared and opened to what is happing and what he is saying. makes perfect sense to me. he is our loving father he would do anything for us, if that meant looking different from what the bible tells us he looks like to put someone who is scared and hurt of corse he would change his apperance to ease there pain and confussion.

  8. She is right, knows exactly what he looks like. I always said he looked like Kenny Logins, but never drew him. Hard to capture the Light and warmth of love he carries with him.
    Great Job!

    God is realy good.coltons experience is a good inspiration to us all.his true story realy was a wake up call for me and has indeed fortified my faith in God.its my prayer n hope that others out there who dont believe in God, will use this medium and turn to God to enjoy a better and everlasting heaven colton is talking about.Heaven is realy real !

  10. What a blessing it is to hear my baby of 12yrs say how he is ready to be saved…. Coming from a life of pain and disappointment and constant abandonment Its good to know that his spirit is still so strong and after a life of heartache I believe god will show him a better more fruitful life. I thank the lord every day for him. And he has a heart so big I’m blessed to have him and his sons are proud of their daddy.
