His name was Victory; he was strong as a mighty warrior. He was racing through the heavens faster than the speed of lightening. For all those that could see him, he was a beautiful sight, dazzling with the glory of his creator as he ran with all his might.
Victory came to a sudden halt as the Carpenter appeared. He watched as the Carpenter surveyed the city. The carpenter was often here watching to make sure every stone was in its proper place. Victory knew this was a very special city it was not build by the hands of man but created in the heavens a home for the Carpenters soon coming bride. The Carpenter looked extremely happy as he watched the mansions in the city being built. The name of city was Holy Jerusalem. Jesus was adorning her as a bride, one day the Carpenter and His bride would live forever throughout eternity in the eternal Kingdom of God.
Victory longed to see the day arrive when together he and his creator would ride through the heavens. In the blink of an eye His bride would take on the likeness of her Bridegroom. Together she would ride with them through time and space into eternity.
Victory realized that he had been created for that day when the Carpenter, the one called Faithful and True would mount upon his back and together they would lead the armies of heavens into the final battle on earth. Victory pictured what a magnificence sight they would be as the heaven rolled away. All the Inhabitants on earth would see the saints of all the ages, riding upon white horses, arrayed in the glory of their Father. At last the kingdoms of the world would become the Kingdoms of God and of His Christ.
Victory was in charge of training all the horses for that great day. Everyday he would gather the heard and they would race through the heavens. On earth they could often be seen as shooting stars or flashes of bright light, which would fill the skies. Victory had trained them well. They could ride faster then the speed of light. Everyone knew their place and none would break rank.
He knew they must be prepared to leave in a flash. At the sound of the trumpet they would go to catch His bride away. What a glorious day that would be!
Victory began to trot around the City as he watched the Carpenter work. It indeed was a beautiful place and fit for Kings and Priest. Victory loved everything in the Kingdom but he had to admit the place he loved the most was the heavenly zoo. This was no ordinary zoo and the carpenter’s bride might be quiet surprised to find such a place in her new home. Maybe, the Animal kingdom would be a much better description.
Every spirit that ever lived on the earth returned to the Father and it was the same with the spirits of all animals only here in The Kingdom of Christ they were redeemed. The heavenly zoo was a place of beauty and peace. The lions lay down with the lambs. Dogs and cats were the best of friends. There were multitudes of animals. There was not one missing from all God created on the earth at the beginning. They roamed free in the garden just as they had at the beginning. Their language was all one and the same, they understood the saints and the saints understood them. It was a great thing to behold The Father’s original plan for man and beast. There were no tears or pain nothing that would harm in the entire Kingdom.
Victory heard the voice of the Carpenter calling him. In the blink of an eye he was bowing before Him.
The Carpenter gently stroked Victory’s mane and spoke to him in a voice filled with love.
“Just a few more touches Victory and all will be ready for My Bride. Have you prepared all the horses and their riders? Soon the trumpet will sound and you must be ready.”
My Lord we are all prepared and waiting for your command.
As they stood side by side, the Carpenter turned and looked down on the earth.
“Victory isn’t she a beautiful sight?”
Victory had to agree every time he looked on The Carpenters Bride she looked more and more like Him.
There were great battles going on the earth but the amazing thing that Victory saw was the greater the battles the stronger and more beautiful she grew. She was no longer shy and timid like at the beginning but now she was covered in garments of white. The glory of God could be seen on her face and heard in her voice. She spoke with authority and demons trembled at her presence. She would gladly lay down her life for her soon coming bridegroom.
There was the sound of laughter and joy in the voice of the Carpenter as He said, “Victory, come let us return to our preparations soon she will be ready to come home. She shall reign with Me and feast at My table forever on that day, but for now I must continue to prepare her home. Go, my friend and call the horses and their riders and race with joy for soon time shall be no more and she shall live with me forever.”
Victory was off and running in the twinkling of an eye he could be seen on the earth as the beautiful sight of a shooting star in the heavens.
