Well… It is church as usual on a typical Sunday morning at Loving First Church. Pastor Taylor has concluded a powerful sermon entitled You Betta Get your House in Order. However, some of his members are still convinced they have plenty of time before Jesus comes for His church. As little children and adults, we have all heard over and over again from the many evangelists, preachers, teachers and church mothers that Jesus is soon to come; however, do you really believe the end is drawing near? For many years the early Pioneers sang such devotions as… “You Betta Get Lined Up; PAYDAY is Coming After While”… “You Betta Stop Now; It’s Prayin Time”… “There’s Gonna Be a FIRE One Day; That the Fireman Can’t Put Out!’ I therefore submit to you that the question is not "IS JESUS COMING BACK BUT WILL YOU BE READY WHEN HE COMES?” Midnight Cry focuses on the “End Time” and exposes some of the various demonic strongholds that affect both the lives of the “Believer and Non-Believer”. It touches the very heart and soul of this 21st Century church and the principalities of the world as so many continue to struggle with various strongholds that continuously hinders our relationships with each other and most important our relationship with Jesus Christ. Midnight Cry features a phenomenal cast that will deliver uplifting and soul-stirring songs; but most important they will encourage and inspire you by ministering the gospel message of Jesus Christ.
