Video: A Letter from Your Heavenly Father



By T.V. Antony Raj


I created the video A Letter from Your Heavenly Father” based on the text of “Father’s Love Letter” by Barry Adams of Father Heart Communications © 1999-2011.

Father’s Love Letter” is a compilation of Bible verses from both the Old & New Testaments that are presented in the form of a love letter from God to us.

Each line of the Father’s Love Letter message is paraphrased, which means that Barry Adams has taken each Scripture’s overall message and summarized it as a single phrase to best express its meaning.

… I can remember the day that I asked God to help me to better comprehend His love in light of all of the scripture that I was now seeing throughout the Bible. In my heart, I immediately heard a still small voice say… ‘If you put the scriptures in the right order, they will form a love letter’. That was December 1998 and by January 1999 I had compiled a series of paraphrased scriptures into a PowerPoint presentation accompanied by Brian Doerksen’s song ‘Faithful Father’ that I played as a sermon illustration in my home church,” says Barry Adams

I am a fan of Late Arthur C. Clarke and an avid reader of his works. In 1970, I met him in person in Sri Lanka and shook hands with him.


Arthur C. Clarke


In 1948, Clarke wrote a short story “The Sentinel” for a BBC competition. Though the story was rejected, it changed the course of Clarke’s career. “The Sentinel” introduced a more cosmic element to Clarke’s work. It was the basis for Stanley Kubrick‘s film “2001: A Space Odyssey” which I have viewed countless number of times.

The docking of the space shuttle from earth with the space station hovering between the earth and the moon, with “The Blue Danube” of Strauss lilting in the background, was the best cinematic scene that has ever impressed and inspired me.

So, I created this video “A Letter from Your Heavenly Father” using the docking clip from Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” and the musical movement in the background is “An Der Schonen Blauen Donau Opus 314” (German: “On the Beautiful Blue Danube“), a waltz by the Austrian composer Johann Strauss II, composed in 1866 and rendered here by André Rieu and His Johann Strauss Orchestra.

I hope this video presentation of mine will inspire you with the verses created by Barry Adams.
