Now Revealed - A New Chapter in the Akiane Story
Now, back to Akiane’s painting simply titled “JESUS” and the most recent chapter of Akiane’s mysterious walk with the Lord which began late in 2016, just after Akiane and family returned to the United States from an extended tour in Europe.
At age 22 Akiane Kramairk and her family returned to the United States and settled on a small farm in the countryside in Illinois. Soon she was offered a project not yet made public. To complete the request, Akiane was asked to create a line drawing of Prince of Peace. Akiane says it was an awkward assignment, especially since the original was gone, yet she felt compelled to accept the unusual request. Recreating the real face of Jesus originally painted at age into a simple line drawing - was not simple at all! As you will see while watching the "Painting The Impossible" documentary below. As the project progressed, Akiane became overwhelmed with the incredible detail that was being revealed to her! “I was hearing a new message,” Akiane said. “I prayed about what to do next, and was blown away by the unexpected answer! Despite all my doubts I took out a linen canvas and began painting my vision ...” A labor of obedience and love took a strange turn when, with over 1,000 hours invested in the new painting, Akiane began sensing that completing the Jesus painting in her most recent vision - was impossible!
Was this Akiane’s Dark Night of the Soul?
On Christmas, Eve 2016, dark forces invaded Akiane’s sleep ... a sinister nightmare unfolded. Akiane saw her portrait of Jesus destroyed. Akiane rushed to her studio. The painting was still there, but the image of Jesus appeared veiled and lifeless!
Over the next weeks, as hard as Akiane tried, she could not fix this painting of Jesus!
Many, more weeks passed with no progress ... Akiane was devastated. This had never happened before. Akiane knew the Lord had commissioned her to do this painting of Jesus. Where was God? What was happening?
Akiane began to realize that all of her efforts were not good enough - she began to lose hope. Darkness persisted. For the first time in her life, Akiane Kramarik was ready to quit, give up and abandon God's Divine Commission to present this new portrait of Christ to the world.
We were all very, very concerned! In nearly 15 years of working with Akiane, I had never seen her in this type of deep despair. We all continued to pray. Her parents, brothers, family, and trusted friends persisted - - - finally, a breakthrough occurred! For a brief time, Akiane was shown the full vision of Jesus. Once revealed she quickly returned to her studio.
On July 9th, Akiane’s 23rd birthday she excitedly shared her new painting with the world - a beautiful testimony of endurance and a give of great love and light that contains a message to all. Looking back on this mysterious, and sometimes dark spiritual drama Akiane says,
All these years God was waiting for me to grow so I could paint the most powerful message to mankind; A Message of Unwavering Faith, Unconditional love and Eternal life - JESUS.
