Psalm 56:13




The psalmist views his entire deliverance as accomplished; nothing remains to be asked for. That I may walk before God in the light of the living; i.e. that henceforth I may be free from trouble, and walk before God in the clear daylight, no longer dwelling in darkness, but in "the light of life."

Job 19:25



The Spirit of God, at this time, seems to have powerfully wrought on the mind of Job. Here he witnessed a good confession; declared the soundness of his faith, and the assurance of his hope. Here is much of Christ and heaven; and he that said such things are these, declared plainly that he sought the better country, that is, the heavenly. Job was taught of God to believe in a living Redeemer; to look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come; he comforted himself with the expectation of these. Job was assured, that this Redeemer of sinners from the yoke of Satan and the condemnation of sin, was his Redeemer, and expected salvation through him; and that he was a living Redeemer, though not yet come in the flesh; and that at the last day he would appear as the Judge of the world, to raise the dead, and complete the redemption of his people.

The Midnight Cry


I hear the sound of a mighty rushing wind
And it’s closer now than it’s ever been
I can almost hear the trumpet as Gabriel sounds the chord
At the midnight cry we’ll be going home.

When Jesus steps out on a cloud to call his children
The dead in Christ shall rise to meet Him in the air
And then those that remain shall be quickly changed
At the midnight cry we’ll be going home.

I look around me I see prophecies fulfilled
The signs of the times they’re appearing everywhere
I can almost see the Father as he says "Son, go get my children"
At the midnight cry, the bride of Christ will rise.

At the midnight cry when Jesus comes again
At the midnight cry, when Jesus comes again
At the midnight cry we'll be going home.

- Michael English





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

Mark 11:24



Have faith in God - Literally, "Have the faith of God." This may mean, have strong faith, or have confidence in God; a strong belief that he is able to accomplish things that appear most difficult with infinite ease, as the fig-tree was made to wither away by a word.
