I was in the spirit on the Lord’s day

And behold, I was in the spirit on the Lord’s day.
and a voice bid me arise and look
and I looked and saw the tears that she shed fall upon him
and once again could not see for my own tears flowed freely
and the voice bid me wipe away my tears and look again
and I looked and her tears were magnified an hundred times
and an hundred times an hundred times
and within the tears I beheld a vista
and there stood my father before the gates of heaven
and the gates were thrown wide open
and an angel bid him enter
and beyond the gates to welcome him were the hosts of heaven
and with them those who had passed on in the faith before him
and they were too numerous to count
for they were as the sands of the sea
and the voice said to me comfort your mother and one another
for God has seen it fit to give unto your father a just recompense and an everlasting crown
now arise and hurry, and do well whatsoever your hands find to do
so that when your time comes or this system of things be no more
you may receive the same reward along with your father and all the saints
an everlasting life with the king of kings, the Lord of Lords, the creator of all that there is, was and will be.
