I don't know very many Movie scenes of Heaven. I have seen the Robin Williams movie, ''What Dreams May Come.'' And that actually showed a lot of Heaven and Hell, I don't even think it's a religious movie. I just don't know that many other movies that show you Heaven in detail. Like what you do all day...

And when I search online, I just see pictures of clouds. Maybe a few pictures of New Jerusalem, but it looks so bland.. Just a golden city that looks like a ghost town. I want to see pictures that can show me in detail what it is like. I want movies too.

Because if Heaven is supposed to be more beautiful than Earth, why are most of the pictures so bland? Clouds? That's it? At least make it look like Disneyland.

Fyi, "What Dreams May Come" was based on the Anthony Borgia writings of the messages from the Other Side from his friend that passed Father Benson...as I recall his grandfather was the Archbishop of
Canterbury. Reading those called Life in the Unseen World, free online might interest you.
This covers Benson's exp from his death bed and on...talk about what you do?
It covers so much. There is even more detaill in "More in the World Unseen"...it's a 3 story description.

Another movie made called "The Astral City: A Spiritual Journey", Netflix...based also on messages to Chico Xavier.

Another with Tim Hutton is "Made in Heaven".

How can someone report on something they have not seen/witnessed?

One near death experiencer talked about the light and tranquility etc. but she also spoke of the landscape. flowers in particular...she stated the colors were like nothing she'd ever seen before and that they sang praises.

Ha, and that was only a peek NDErs get...I call it the 'the front porch'...LOL. I've gotten that peek...Haha...I compared it to Toronto...funny how the mind works........(when I found my mother my mind said, "Well, she's as dead as a doornail.")...
everything is like crystal ...so clean and pristine, crisp...Aint no trash or even dust on the Other Side!

You should read what Father Benson says! Flowers, lakes, you come out of all dry...learning to travel with a thought...

Good topic.

Some times it takes an experience to find out the truth, only if one is not mature. what I mean is this. when growing up outside the city, we had a wood stove. and father told us don't touch the wood stove because it is hot. well you know what happen.... yes we touched the wood stove.

now much older and more mature, if some one say don't pick up a serpent , don't worry I want, especially the venomous KIND, don't have to tell me twice. don't have to give over to self experance here.

so, believe God Word, why one need a movie or a picture, take God word by "Faith". for without faith it's impossable to please him.

I wished I had the faith to trust my earthly father, but how much more now my Heavenly Father.

PICYJAG.

PS, Hosea 4:6 "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children".

Almost no scripture on heaven....Paul was given a tour but told not to speak of it. Some think heaven is so glorious our minds can't handle it......

That is because one day we will wake up in his likeness...That is heaven, try telling bible believers this and they won't believe you.

According to Scripture, no one is in hell yet. Heaven canít be imagined.

My own analogy is... picture what heaven is like is trying to think of a color you have never seen before.

Why aren't there many detailed pictures or movies of Heaven or Hell?
Larry David went to heaven in Curb Your Enthusiasm, but got kicked out after getting into an argument with an angel (Dustin Hoffman).

the movies ,such as the ones you've seen, does NOT show what Heaven or Hell actually looks like. because those who does NOT know Jehovah God and Jesus. will NOT have accurate knowledge of what's actually there. for hell, if Many would actually do research, they would know how a fiery place called "HELL" became a false teaching. the bible it self, show what "HELL", really is. and the book of Revelation, explained a vision of what John had seen concerning Heaven. also people need to understand that what they read from Revelation isn't mostly literal. such as (Rev. 22:1 "And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb"). there's NO actual "river of water" in Heaven, NO Spirit being needs anything to sustain their lives as humans do. peace
