Exalted to the highest rank, beauty swirled with a covering of gems--robes of splendor, whose fiery facets of brilliance engendered a hidden ambition and gave it time to mature.
Then from flawlessness came desire marred, when vanity corrupted what perfection inspired, but that which he thought was sure would become his demise.
He had it all, except for the laud and adoration, and the elation he wanted to feel when worshipped and loved. Yet the Triune One, who created his will, was worthy alone of such praise, and the question of whether to kneel to another had never been raised in the hearts of heaven’s realm.
But what began as a careless thought became a passionate quest in the heart of this being for what he could not have, though, in truth, he had want for nothing. An instrument of unparalleled song with a wingspan to cover the Ancient One; he, whose beauty could not be compared, dared to allow the dream.
So his thought grew to a whisper spread, with all aware that to follow him would mean they might have to choose between life and death. In the end, their rebellion revealed the fact that those created could never endure the fury of a Love so pure, but by then they found it was too late to turn back.
A line was drawn through the sands of time, bringing the hosts of heaven to battle array. Those who chose to believe a lie experienced God’s anger as it was displayed like lightning through eternity’s trembling domain. No mortal wounds could be inflicted, but their fate, as they stood evicted from Grace, would be placed in the hands of the spotless Lamb who was slain.
Yet once again, the heavens will quake when His sudden appearance shakes the earth as the Son executes the wrath of Almighty God. This time He will come as the conquering King to defeat the one, who by whispering, sought to cover his jealousy and failed. Then Truth will prevail when the battle is won, and a song will spring from those redeemed, whose robes are washed in the blood.
