Midnight's CryA Bible Prophecy Book That Looks Deeper Into The Rapture And Second Coming Doctrines
Initially, according to Bible prophecy, the Lord comes as a thief in the night (Rev. 16:15), not pre-trib or pre-night (Matt. 24:8; 1 Thess. 5:1-3), or at the Second Coming dawn of That Day (2 Pet. 1:19)!
Consider, then, the Midnight Cry found in the Parable of the Ten Virgins (Matt. 25:6) is the beginning of a new day in That Night before it dawns—namely, the Day of the Lord (1 Thess. 5:3)the Day of Jesus Christ the Day of Jesus (1 Cor. 1:8, 5:5) , wherein there is literal salvation, being the Day of Redemption (Eph. 4:30). Thus, the book name: Midnight's Cry (Again, a new day the Day of the Lord, which addresses the issues of Christianity, while mixing the understanding of end-time events with sound doctrine and biblical preparedness. This premise alone fits real Bible prophecy.
And how about the saints of God? Are they with Him at the Second Coming as clearly taught in Scripture (Duet. 33:2; Zach. 14:5; 1 Thess. 3:13, 4:14; Jude vs. 14)? In this vein , do the angels wear the righteousness of the saints? Or do people? Interesting question, because if it is people, then people are with the Lord and at the Wedding Feast before the traditional Second Coming, and very much a part of the Army of the Lord (Joel 2:2; Rev. 19:8, 14). By the way, the answer is angels don’t wear the righteousness of the saints, for the exegetical context dictates it is the Bride who has made herself ready, not the angels who are holy already (Rev. 19:7-8)!!!
So when Christ is the Bright & Morning Star, or the first light after the night at the Second Coming (the dawn of that Day), is He really saying it's okay to be disobedient to the commands of the earlier watches of the night (Mark 13:33-37; Rev. 3:3, 16:15)? For He won't return until the dawn of That Day? Until the traditional Second Coming?
By the way, Second Coming Only Theology is disobedience in action—just like it is to teach and believe in the at-once pre-trib or pre-night Rapture. For both teachings negate the night and the Day of the Lord, which comes just as Christ does, as a thief in the night (1 Thess. 5:3). And that clearly is not the dawning of That Day!
Now Second Coming Theology denies the rightful beginning of the Lord’s Day prior night, when the antichrist and the Great Apostasy is revealed to the Church (2 Thess. 2:2-3). Conversely, some in Second Coming Only Theology place the beginning of the Lord’s Day deep into the Tribulation Night at the appearance of cosmic signs. This is a great error (the opening of the sixth seal).
In sum, Second Coming Theology is a false theology that nullifies the Blessed Hope; it denies the Woman clothed with the sun, or Bride which is in Heaven (Rev. 12:1). It denies the Open Door to Philadelphia (Rev. 3:10); it denies that the faithful of Thyatira will escape the Great Tribulation, whereas the unfaithful of Thyatira won’t (Rev. 2:22-24); it denies the fact that Ephesus is in danger of having her candlestick removed in Revelation 2:5 (which is to have her rightful place of salvation put on hold); it denies the fact that Smyrna represents Tribulation converts after the Church is redeemed (In ancient times, a king would leave myrrh on the doorstep of His unresponsive but prospective bride, reminding her that He had called during the night—myrrh is the meaning of Smyrna’s name.)
Second Coming Only Theology denies the fact that Laodicea must open her door upon Christ standing in judgment and knocking on her closed door (Note: Christ is prophesied in both Testaments to sit by His Father until all enemies are made his footstool.). If she doesn't repent, Laodicea will be spit out of the mouth of Christ and lose her salvation (If so, she will no longer be in the Lord’s mouth to confess her to the Father.).
