Midnight's Cry: Revised
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, Mar 22, 2018 - 292 pages
Greetings-I'm Robert Harris; in writing Midnight's Cry, I've combined readiness and doctrine with the fact of Christ's Bridegroom Return-a sudden appearing in That Night without the sound of the Trump of God; or the voice of an Archangel; or a Resurrection of the Just. Suitably, this work makes plain Christ's initial return, which is not an all at-once redemption; whether it be the imminent Pre-Trib Rapture (pre-night) or the Second Coming Only Teaching. Actually, the Pre-Trib Rapture and Second Coming Only Teachings both negate large portions of Scripture, including the two Bridegroom Comings of Christ before the traditional Second Coming. If either teaching represented the whole truth, then there wouldn't be a command to watch, which is a nighttime activity. No Tribulation Night? No Midnight Cry? No Four Roman Guard Watches of the night? No Doors? No Knocking? No Jewish Wedding? No Bridegroom Return with two male witnesses? No First Fruits? No Like Manner Return? No partial Summer Harvest? No Early and Latter Rains? No thief like coming in That Night? No place prepared for us? No, we are not bought with a price? These many references all intricately link to a Jewish nighttime wedding, and they are not allegoric and meaningless as some would have us to believe. Jesus warned, "Take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting (overindulgence), and drunkenness, and the cares of this life, so that day come upon you unawares. . . .Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things. . . .and to stand before the Son of Man." (Luke 21:34-36). In praying always, Christians are to be sober; not over taken with overindulgence and the cares of this life, not unbelievers or Jews. Now Luke 21:34-36 is part of the Olivet Discourse, which is widely understood to address Jews; however, the context of the Olivet Discourse decidedly changes to Christians at the mention of "summer," which relates to the partial Summer Harvest for the Church (Luke 21:30), and remains so the rest of that chapter. And so it is with the other accounts of the Olivet Discourse in the New Testament. Christians are to look for the Day of Redemption in preparedness for Christ's initial coming (Eph. 4:30; Heb. 10:25)-and this, so THAT DAY doesn't overtake Christians. Ironically, the seven-year Tribulation and the Day of the Lord night segment before it dawns (2 Pet. 1:19), BOTH BEGIN WITH BIRTH PANGS (Matt. 24:8; 1 Thess. 5:3.). They are one in the same. Speaking of the Day, know the following: The Lord's initial coming for the wise of the parable is symbolized by the Cry of Midnight, which begins the Day of Redemption (Eph. 4:30)-or the Day of Jesus Christ (Phil. 1:6, 10)-or the Day of Christ (2 Cor. 2:16; 2 Thess. 2:2-3)-or the Day of the Lord Jesus (1 Cor. 5:5; 2 Cor. 1:14)-or the Day of the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 1:7-8)-or the Day of God (2 Pet. 3:12), or the Lord's Day (Rev. 1:10)-or the Day of the Lord, which comes as a thief in the night (1 Thess. 5:2; 2 Pet. 3:10). All of which are the Day that Christians are to see approaching (Heb. 10:25), lest the Day come upon Christians unawares (Luke 21:34). Now why are all of these days one in the same? Because the Scripture doesn't state that they are different days; nowhere does Scripture divide the days with separate interpretations. Midnight's Cry Revised reveals the how of watching in the Day of Christ before it dawns-featuring the Premillennial Night-Trib View. "Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame" (Rev. 16:15).
