    “Go Ye Out to Meet Him”

    In the Cry for Oct. 3, 1844, was an article written by George Storrs, under the heading, “Go Ye Out to Meet Him,” in which he said:—GSAM 161.1

    “I take up my pen with feelings such as I never before experienced. Beyond a doubt, in my mind, the tenth day of the seventh month will witness the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ in the clouds of heaven. We are within a few days of that event—awful moment to those unprepared, but glorious to those who are ready.GSAM 161.2

    ” ‘Behold, the Bridegroom cometh’ this year; ‘go ye out to meet him.’ We have done with the nominal churches and all the wicked, except so far as this cry may affect them. Our work is now to wake up the ‘virgins who took their lamps and went forth to meet the bridegroom.’ Where are we now? ‘If the vision tarry, wait for it.’ Is not that our answer since last March or April?-Yes. What happened while the Bridegroom tarried?—The virgins all slumbered and slept, did they not? Christ’s words have not failed; and ‘the Scripture cannot be broken.’ It is of no use for us to pretend that we have been awake; we have been slumbering, not on the fact of Christ’s coming, but on the time. We came into the tarrying time; we did not know ‘how long’ it would tarry, and on that point we have slumbered. Some of us have said in our sleep, ‘Don’t fix another time!’ so we slept. Now the trouble is to wake us up. Lord, help, for vain is the help of man. Speak thyself, Lord. O that the ‘Father’ may now ‘make known’ the time.GSAM 161.3
