“The welcome of the centuries awaits man in faith upon the sounding of the trumpet.
The welcome of the centuries speaks of much preparation,
speaks of every thing in place,
speaks of sin relegated to the outfield far from any influence on the field of glory.
The welcome of the centuries sees the fruit of faith rewarded within a scene of blessing,
within a scene of great significance,
within a scene besetting a sea change on the earth.
The welcome of the centuries removes the mat from before an opened doorway for the stars,
removes the hindrance of uncertainty which has bedevilled the past,
removes the word bound in a promise into the reality of the present.
The welcome of the centuries places The King among the kings,
The Shepherd with His flock,
The Lion of Judah with His pride,
The Son with His co-heirs of inheritance,
The Father with His family of greeting in adoption,
The Holy Spirit with His torchlight raised high before His graduands of discipleship,
The Lord Jesus with His bride affirmed with full rejoicing.
The welcome of the centuries witnesses a departure with a greeting,
verifies the healthiness of the soul,
testifies of the leading of the spirit of man and completion of the task.
The welcome of the centuries witnesses the soul receiving the handshake of eternity,
acknowledges a relationship established unto completion,
testifies of the unity of the soul and the spirit in perfect harmony.
The welcome of the centuries witnesses the fulfilment of the promises of God,
bequeaths endowments becoming due,
testifies of the successful calling of the bride unto the presence of her King.
The welcome of the centuries reverses an earlier departure within the annals of the ministry of man,
within the annals of the registry of God,
within the annals held in faith as bestowed on every generation with knowledge of the
new covenant as declared.
The welcome of the centuries is extended to the faithful and the fearful –
the watchers and the waiters –
the sheep and the lambs:
those who have each shed their heart of sin,
have each presented with their temple,
have each received their gown of life.
For such as they are the victors of a race well run,
with greetings as they finish upon the making of a call,
with selection of the destiny confirmed by the outcomes inherent in every freewill choice.
For such as they are the children of God –
the sons and daughters of The Living God.
For such as they are the stars of God.
For such as they are those on whom His glory falls,
on whom His glory builds,
on whom His glory extends the welcome of the centuries.”
