Salvation at Midnight

The victorious Christ is always present, and its redemptive power is forever available to men. We can be faced with no insoluble human problem, because the light of the Christ is eternally revealing to us God's supremacy. As we turn to this light, accept it, and utilize it, we behold the spiritual fact that good is real and evil unreal; that health, purity, justice, and joy are as continuous as the constancy of the divine Love which gives us these good gifts.

Glorious experiences of liberation through spiritual enlightenment are recorded in the Bible, many of which came at the darkest hours, when evil appeared most active and powerful and the supremacy of good was being aggressively challenged by material sense testimony. One of Jesus' parables (Matt. 25:1–12) likens the kingdom of heaven to ten virgins who "took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bride-groom," the five wise virgins taking "oil in their vessels with their lamps." While awaiting his coming, the virgins all slept, and the lamps of the five unwise virgins went out.
