     “The people of God – some in prison cells, some hidden in solitary retreats in the forests and the mountains – still plead for divine protection, while in every quarter companies of armed men, urged on by hosts of evil angels, are preparing for the work of death.   It is now, in the hour of utmost extremity, that the God of Israel will interpose for the deliverance of His chosen.  Saith the Lord: “Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy  solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth . . to come into the mountain of the Lord, to the Mighty One of Israel.  And the Lord shall cause His glorious voice to be heard, and shall show the lighting down of His arm, with the indignation of His anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones.”  Isaiah 30:29,30.

     “With shouts of triumph, jeering , and imprecation, throngs of evil men are about to rush upon their prey, when , lo, a dense blackness, deeper than the darkness of the night,  falls upon the earth. Then a rainbow, shining with the glory from the throne of God, spans the heavens and seems to encircle each praying company. The angry multitudes are suddenly arrested.  Their mocking cries die away.  The objects of their murderous rage are forgotten.  With fearful forebodings they gaze upon the symbol of God’s covenant and long to be shielded from its over powering brightness.

     “By the people of God a voice, clear add melodious, is heard, saying,  “Look up,” and lifting their eyes to the heavens, they behold the bow of promise.  The black, angry clouds that covered the firmament are parted, and like Stephen they look up steadfastly into heaven and see the glory of God and the Son of man seated upon His throne.  In His divine form they discern the marks of His humiliation; and from His lips they hear the request presented before His Gather and the holy angels:  “I will that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am.” John 17:24.  Again a voice, musical and triumphant, is heard, saying: “They come! they come! holy, harmless, and undefiled.   They have kept the word of My Patience; they shall walk among the angels,” and the pale, quivering lips of those who have held fast their faith utter a shot of victory.

     “It is at midnight that God manifests His power for the deliverance of His people.  . . .Everything in natures seems turned out of its course.  The streams cease to flow.  Dark, heavenly clouds come up ad clash against each other.   In the midst of the angry heavens is one clear space of indescribably glory, when comes the voice of God like the sound of many waters, saying: “It is done.” (Revelation 16:17).

Gods assurance is in the blood of the Lamb, Jesus is worthy to open this scroll, to reveal His Love for all mankind and His hatred of sin of all kind, that separates man from His love and free gift of Freedom and Eternal life.
