The Midnight Cry

19Aug06

(Mat 25:6) And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

(1Co 15:52) In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

(1Th 4:16) For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

(Rev 14:6) And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,

(Rev 14:7) Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

The midnight cry is the shout of 1Th 4:16, the trumpet of 1Co 15:52 & the loud voice of Rev 14:7. It is the last trump; the trump of God. This will be the last alter call before the rapture. It is the last hour (Rev 14:7) before the dead in Christ shall rise. (1Th 4:17) Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

“Fly in the midst of heaven” refers to tv, radio & satellites. The archangel or chief messenger is God’s chosen preacher with the Message of the Cross to be preached to all the world via radio, tv & satellite broadcasts. This preacher is alive now, he is in his 70’s. With the signs of the times you know the rapture is soon.

Most believe Rev 14:6 & 7 take place sometime after the rapture. The book of Revelation contains some literary flashbacks. Rev 14:6 & 7 are one of the flashbacks to just before the Rapture of the Church.

(1Th 5:2) For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. (Mat 25:10) And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. (Mat 25:11) Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. The five wise virgins were ready and went in the rapture. The five foolish virgins missed out. I advise all to “Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is COMING SOON: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.”
