THEN shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our laps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
This is an interesting parable, because we see that all 10 of the women were virgins. All 10 had oil in their lamps starting out, but 5 brought extra oil. The bride groom tarried, and those who didn't have extra oil ran out, so their lamps went out. Those with the extra oil were prepared when the bride groom (Christ) returned. Those whose lamps were burning were welcomed in whereas those who had allowed their lamps to go out were cast away. We are warned to always be watching and waiting on Christ to return, because he will come at a time unexpected.
Butero one of the very churches mentioned in revelation were warned about this . IF YE SHALL NOT WATCH then I will come upon you as a thief. And just that unction I had yesterday , first when I was playing bible game with turtle and then at our fellowship . The lambs that are watching WILL be very aware also of the signs of the times . And this Sodom thing REALLY hit my soul . Because we are in those days as never before any generation has ever been . And its not just a city , or a state or even a nation Its the whole world waxing like this . Like total reprobation and a big increasing of hate against those who would try and correct . What again was the difference in Sodom . its inquity had ran full . Thus it no longer hid sins , it celebrated them in the streets . and its tolerance against those who would even dare to correct , was VOID . it was bold in sin and bold against correction . THESE DAYS INDEED .
