A Place Called Heaven - 5.4 metres x 4.2 metres - Oil on Canvas
A place called heaven is a series of six paintings 210 x 180 cm each, making a total size of 540 x 420 cm; describing the mighty work of God – the Creator. . The truth is inseparable to God; His word is equal to himself. We only know Him through His word. The understanding and explanation of His word is given to us according to His will through His spirit by revelation. What was written in the bible more than 2000 years ago, hasn't yet been fully revealed to human hearts. But it is prophesied in the bible that ‘In the last day, God will pour out his spirit in all people’. With more technology and knowledge available to us today we can have more understanding of what is written in the book of life. It is written ‘In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.’ According to this first verses of the bible God created the heaven and the earth; and the expanse between the heaven and the earth was dark, and God’s spirit was hovering over the water. ‘And God said “Let there be light, “’ So God created the light in between the heaven and the earth ‘And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. God made two great lights – the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth, to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning – the fourth day.’ Heaven is a real place inaccessible to mankind’s knowledge or understanding. If heaven had not been described by God himself we couldn't’ have known anything about it. Glory be to God for sending us His only begotten son who is the only person who has ever been in heaven and come on the earth to describe it.
According to the Cosmos book (forwarded by David Sobel) ‘A few hundred years ago we believed the universe was bound by a crystal sphere speckled with fixed stars. Less than a century ago, we believed the Milky Way to be its entire extent. Now we know it stretches at least 130 billion trillion kilometres (80 billion trillion miles) in every direction around us. We know that the magnificent vault of stars emblazoning earth’s night skies are an infinitesimal fraction of the hundreds of billions that inhabit our galaxy, and we also know there are at least as many galaxies in the universe as there are stars in the Milky Way. We know our galaxy is a member of a cluster of galaxies, that is itself an outlying member of a supercluster 100 million light years across, which is but part of a filament that stretches a billion light years across space.’
The beginning of life, the big bang which has started 100 billion years ago, according to scientists, is in perfect accord with the word of God in the beginning was God and God created the light, we all know movement comes just with life – so in order to have the big bang there has to be life behind that movement. God is showing himself through 4 different natural characteristics – water, air, fire and earth which is what we are made of with everything around us. We are one with our universe and the earth which is our Garden of Eden. We have been put in it to guard it, to maintain it – it is the only place which has been attributed to our bodies to survive. The creator describing this garden as being beautifully made has put everything in place to satisfy his creatures. The soil, to sow and reap food to eat, the stream of water to drink, the air in the atmosphere to breath, the oil to light our candles and many other things. We live on the earth but the earth is not down below. Before people used to think the earth was the last planet and all the others were up, but the earth is part of the solar system which has in the centre the sun and many other planets around it – it is contained in the Milky Way which is our galaxy and itself is one of the many uncountable other galaxies found in our universe according to scientists. All those planets, galaxies and superclusters, blackholes, stars, are found in the sky. Some of the galaxies are hundreds of millions of light years away from us. Human beings have so far reached the moon which is our closest neighbour, approximately 366,000 km away from the earth. The sun is our nearest star, millions of kilometres away, we cannot get close to it because of its brightness and the lack of equipment. There are millions of stars bigger than our sun in the universe. Coming from that knowledge of our universe, and comparing it to ourselves, we are like a drop of water in the sea. But humans have over-estimated their knowledge, being just living creatures like the small ants which live in societies, gather food in the summer time for the harder months, having a hierarchy lead by the queen and an army ready to defend them in-case of attack.
The God Glory painting does not just stop in the human level of knowing the universe – there are different worlds in our universe, like the visible worlds are the ones we can see and the invisible worlds – those ones are not visible in our eyes like the world of bacteria, to see them we need a microscope. The kingdom of God, or heaven, where His throne is – is not accessible to mankind’s understanding. Heaven, as described fully in the book of Revelation, is the first major work of God. Surrounding His throne are 24 other thrones and ‘From the throne came flashes of lightening, rumblings and peals of thunder. Before the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits of God. Also before the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal.’ There are so many more descriptions about heaven throughout the bible some of them given by the Lord Jesus Christ. What can be helpful for mankind to understand the mystery and the glory of the creator, is faith by the spirit which is the invisible part of our body. God is spirit but is manifesting himself through his characteristic air, water, earth and fire and He made us from the dust and breathed in our nostrils the breath of life. It is impossible to comprehend God in our own understanding, but by humbling ourselves, knowing that a vase cannot say to the potter you have not formed me or you are not cleaver, we will be able to feel His love, and through His word to discover His mighty wisdom and His Glory.
Francfrique - The Prophecy Oil on Canvas - 175 x 250 cm
Civilisation and war seem to work side by side throughout history to bring about its own extinction. Civilisation is also considered “the stage of human social and cultural development and organisation that is considered most advanced” to apply that definition in any human society, is to deny our nature that never fully understands the harmony that should be between humans to reach that goal.
Instead, human civilisations are purely materialistic. Every tools, equipment, or shelter that is created on earth is to ease or appease and facilitate our daily activities. To declare to be civilised, one must at least master reality and what is beyond reality, meaning the natural laws of our universe. By observing our nature, there is no natural thing that is, that shouldn’t be – from the stream of water to the invisible breath, everything works accordingly to the will and wisdom of the Creator. The civilised person will be the one capable to accommodate himself by understanding the nature and the supernatural laws set into the environment in which he is dwelling. That has been observed in humanity throughout our existence until the latest greatest civilisation in Egypt where buildings like the pyramids have been perfectly aligned with the stars of heaven and the spirituality was set in balance between good and evil and the afterlife was also described.
Natural catastrophes, famines, deluge and invasions were common, but did not disrupt the preservation of nature and its environment.
Modernisation is a nice name given to a depraved mind. What is modern? The human or the material? Everything started with the discovery of the gunpowder in China, initially intended for medicine as the elixir of life, but ended up being used for the very contrary. After a while, it started to fall into other people’s hands, the Arabs and then the Europeans – what a joy! A dream-come-true!
With the guns, they moved from humans to superior; as killing was no more the matter of strength, but a gunshot. The gunpowder couldn’t move from China to Africa without transiting through the Arabs and the Europeans, like it is today. So they have suffered the heaviest loss any human history has known. From slavery up to date, hundreds of millions have died.
Francafrique is a very good example to illustrate the sickening behaviour and mental illness that a human can portray toward another.
To understand the depraved behaviour of the westerners towards other human beings we first have to acknowledge their original plan to conquer the world, to remain the only humans on earth.
Where the resistance was heavy, therefore couldn’t kill to the last remnant, they drafted plans with locals to subdue these populations, some by slavery and deportation for labour. The Indians to Africa, the Africans to America and Islands. Then, sitting at the mountain top, they took all the documentaries of the Africans and rewrote the history and dated it year Zero to wipe out the past and make themselves superior – the provider of life, philosophy, religion, education and every that is.
The Arabs took note and copied through the Qur’an but theirs wasn’t as successful as their ambition wasn’t to become superior, neither to conquer the world.
There are more than 40 countries in Europe, but only those which have tasted the glory of Egypt in Africa have not only corrupted the history but vowed themselves to be more by destroying the very fabric of civilisation, the English, French, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, Italian, German, Belgian, Russian, American etc.
There are also those who plundered the wealth and those who are taking themselves like world leaders, the sickening mentality hasn’t changed – despite the proof on the ground and the unseen work of the natural powers of the laws set in the universe.
Today, in the year 2020, some small countries like France and England are still having total control of Islands and a hand in the internal affairs of other countries.
In Africa, the most prominent hand is still the one of the French, incapable of solving poverty in their own soil; their deepest desire is to reconquer Africa by spreading through NATO and the support of America, military forces in more than 14 African countries; and all of them combined cannot fight local militia but instead are focused to protect and exploit the natural resources in Africa. The same system has been observed in the Middle East under the umbrella of democracy – the worst of the systems.
They lack vision and understanding, neither do they operate on wisdom.
According to the definition of civilisation, China is the most civilised country in our universe; they have reached their goal by not invading and destroying any country. How can those whom for centuries have controlled not only humans but also all the resources, and the world; did not make it and today are more determined than ever to restart with the same system – how are they going to make it?
Africa is a garden of heaven - when even Egypt was at the top of the civilisation, they did not impose their philosophy on others, and they have been all over the world by harmonising the universe.
Slavery, has killed and displaced millions of Africans. Colonisation has killed and subdued millions of other humans, taking out their dignity, their name, their language, their culture.
Democracy, the worst of all, destroys countries’ infrastructure through heavy bombing where millions are losing their lives and millions are staying in shelters, malnourished and dying of cold and disease - just for them to have the oil and natural resources.
But our world has changed, whilst their mind and system hasn’t. We live in the world where races are mingled, defying their very classification of race.
Most of the countries have capacity of defending themselves. There are more humans today that they have killed during colonisation and slavery. The world has more wealth today than the one they have gathered in the past by killing others.
Most of the investments in their soil are made by the ones they have once colonised.
Just by natural observation, it’s easy to say that France can be owned by an African than to ever imagine that a small country like France can control a continent. The British in the past colonised America, but today they seek help from America. Time is the only witness as we are all passing.
