    MIDNIGHT CRY

    would be given. In confirmation of this, a few extracts from the writings of Adventists of that time are given. The first are words of George Storrs:—LDT 168.2

    “‘Behold, the Bridegroom cometh’ this year; ‘go ye out to meet Him.’ We have done with the nominal churches and the world, 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 Scriptures can not be broken,’ and 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!LDT 168.3

    “How long is the tarrying time?-Half a year. How do you know?-Because our Lord says, ‘At midnight,’ while the bridegroom tarried. The vision was for ‘twenty-three hundred evening-mornings,’ or days. An ‘evening,’ or night, is half of one of those prophetic days, and is therefore six months. That is the whole length of the tarrying time. The present strong cry of time commenced about the middle of July, and has spread with great rapidity and power.” 4Midnight Cry, Oct. 3, 1844.LDT 169.1
