Request made by a friend of my dad;
His name is Jairo E. Torres, and composes music and songs in Spanish for God’s glory,
and produces videos to share Jesus.
This series of pictures he requested are meant as a symbol for our “ark” of salvation: Christ,
who will save His children from the destruction by fire (instead of water) of this world.
He asked the ark to be white and red to represent the purity and the cleansing blood of Christ.
The following are a summary of the symbolic imagery he chose:
1. Construction of Ark – Representing the different functions people have
in “the body of Christ.” As Romans 12:45 says we are “a body in Christ”
2. The Door – In John 10:9, Jesus said ” I am the door. If anyone enters by Me,
he will be saved…” A day will come when the door of salvation will be shut,
just like the door of the ark was. Then it will be too late so search for God.
3. Length – Represents the “length” of our walk with God, just like Enoch,
who walked with God for 300 years, and was taken by God to heaven without ever dying.
4. Width – Means obeying God’s will, and being found in Him before the door closes.
5. Height – Refers to the transforming work of the Holy spirit in our lives, to make
us into the image of Jesus’ character: reaching His “height.”
6. 3 Floors – Means growing in Christ. Jesus’ love and His cause will grow in your
life, by the guidance and power of His Spirit.
7. Raven – Represents Satan, who was cast out of Paradise for his rebellion
against God. He brought sin (breaking God’s law) into being, and blamed it on God,
misrepresenting God with his own character. He now seeks to separate you and me from God
by any means possible.
8. Dove – Represents the Holy Spirit, His presence in your life will produce “fruits”:
love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, kindness, faith, meekness, and self-control.
9. The Storm – Through the storm that will come to Earth at the endtime, God will
protect and provide for His own. The world will seek to persecute and destroy God’s people,
but He will guide them through their hardships, and in the end, He will take them home when
He returns to judge the Earth, and destroy it by fire.
10. New Creation – God’s redeemed children will inherit the Earth, once it has been
cleansed by fire and recreated into beauty once more. The 144,000 and the rest of the saved
will praise the Lamb (Christ). “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and
washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” Revelation 7:14
“Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life,
and may enter through the gates into the city.” Revelation 22:14
(please only give glory to God, not me, thanks : )
