Ten Thousand Times Ten Thousand

Here we are still on earth two thousand years after
Jesus left and the disciples were told to watch for
His return. But the midnight call has gone forth
and the ten virgins are trimming their lamps.

Ten thousand time ten thousand,
   In sparkling raiment bright,
The armies of the ransomed saints
   Throng up the steeps of light;
'Tis finished, all is finished,
   Their fight with death and sin;
Fling open wide the golden gates,
   And let the victors in.

What rush of hallelujahs
   fills all the earth and sky!
What ringing of a thousand harps
   Bespeaks the triumph nigh!
O day for which creation
   And all its tribes were made!
O joy, for all its former woes
   A thousandfold repaid!

O then what raptured greetings
   On Canaan's happy shore,
What knitting severed friendships up,
   Where partings are no more!
Then eyes with joy shall sparkle
   That brimmed with tears of late;
Orphans no longer fatherless,
   Nor widows desolate.

Bring near Thy great salvation,
   Thou Lamb for sinners slain;
Fill up the roll of Thine elect,
   Then take Thy power and reign;
Appear, Desire of nations,
   Thine exiles long for home;
Show in the heavens Thy promised sign;
   Thous Prince and Savior, come.
Henry Alford (1810-71)

Reader, the night is far spent, the day is at hand.
There were ten virgins but only five went into the
wedding feast. What made the difference? Open
to the first three chapters of Revelation and ask
the Lord to show you which church you represent.
Truly, He is at the door! Are you Rapture ready?

The month of September and October this year has
been very busy prophetically. Lots going on in the
heavens and there have been many shadows and
patterns. InformedChristiansYouTube has been
putting up three to four videos a week of some very
interesting stuff regarding the rapture. I will post the
most recent below:
