Black Pentecostal Discussion on

I read this post one one of the blogs whose feeds I subscribe to via google reader. Very interesting to say the least, so interesting that I did what I rarely do -- post a comment online!

See the post here and join the discussion! I know my comments don't reflect the popular view of some of my fellow Black Pentecostal believers, and that's OK -- It's a chance I am willing to take.

Meet An Child Prodigy . . . Artist and Poet

I just had to share this even before saying --- HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Welcome to 2008!

I came home from attending a "Crossover" service with my husband at a local church with my husband and tuned the TV to TBN The highlights of 2007 was on air, and a clip played of Matt and Laurie Crouch interviewing a young girl named Akiane Kramarik describing how a man who was a carpenter appeared at her doorstep after she asked God to provide a model of Jesus for her. The picture of Jesus is just amazing, and the lifelike eyes drew me in when I saw it. It reminds me soo much of a picture of Christ crying over the world ... and he is depicted as I believe he was... with olive skin looking very much like an Israeli Jew.

I googled her name and was amazed at what I found. She is truly a child prodigy who has been drawing, painting and writing poetry since the age of 4.

A chronology of her work is here. and its simply georgeous!!

A brief biography of her life thus far on this planet.

Interview clips on you tube here and here.

I believe more and more children such as this young girl will be "discovered" because of the times that we are in...more and more children will amaze us with their God given talents and their awareness of who they are in Him at an early age. They will boldly proclaim their faith and belief in God through Jesus Christ and walk in spiritual gifts and talents. as the Word says "Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings you have Perfected Praise".
