Additional Links

In scriptural language, this word is very frequently used to denote a spiritual recovery from death and deadness of sin. Hence, the apostle saith, (Ephesians 5:14) "Awake, thou that and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light." Hence, the church saith,"I sleep, but my heart waketh." (Song of Song of Solomon 5:2) Heace, the state my the unregenerate, who are never awakened, are described by the prophet under the image of a perpetual sleep. (Jeremiah 51:57) Sometimes, the Lord himself is called upon by the church, under the image of awakening, to come to her deliverance, "Awake, awake, O arm of the Lord," etc. (Isaiah 51:9) And the church, in like manner, is called upon by the Lord, Isaiah 51:17; Isa 52:1.
