Its very intro to me that a whole load of Christians think they have to go through Jacobs troubles or even one guy said the rapture would happen after the tribulation >they would be going up as Jesus was coming down!!>That makes a lot of sense?? And I see a lot do not believe in the rapture at all ! just the second coming! well then there is a lot of nothing burgers and Idle words and verse in the bible then!! that mean nothing if you believe this way! And O ya you would know exactly when the second coming of GodJesus because the book of revelations give you an exact time line!!>> so then what are all these idle and meaningless verses in the bible then??>>Learn this parable from the fig tree: Whenever its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So also you, when you see all these things, know that he is near, right at the door>>>Therefore stay alert, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come>>then the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not foresee>>If the owner of the home had known the hour when the burglary would occur>>Jesus tells us. We do not know the hour of His return, and more than this, the coming of the Son of Man will be at a time that we don’t expect. BUT then If you do not believe in the rapture and we know the exact time he is coming in the second coming by the timeline of revelations??? Then the bible must be full of a combination of statements, ideas, or features of a situation that are opposed to one another. Or is bad theology on the Human side MMM we need to rid ourselves of the false conception that the five foolish virgins ran out of oil. The text is clear on this point; the five foolish virgins never brought any oil with them. it is difficult to interpret the parable if, indeed, they did run out of oil. The difference between the five wise virgins and the five foolish virgins is salvation. These five foolish virgins were not once saved, but then “ran out” of salvation. They were lost, and never had it. They never had oil. They were just empty lamps. They looked useful, they seemed to give promise of light, but they never produced it. Let us not seek to supply what the author has purposefully omitted (any oil) in a way that makes us feel better about the story. We are not supposed to feel good about these five foolish, oil-less virgins. All ten virgins brought their lamps, but only five brought the necessary oil as well. They all waited for the groom to arrive. Time passed and darkness set in. The groom tarried longer than expected and so all ten bridesmaids (virgins) slept until he arrived. Suddenly, at midnight someone cried out that the groom was approaching. All ten virgins are awakened by this cry, and they begin to prepare their lamps for ceremonial service. The need for these lamps is now particularly obvious (it is midnight, pitch dark). The five foolish virgins ask the five wise virgins to share their oil, but their request is denied.The groom, accompanied by the five wise virgins entered the celebration hall. The doors were then closed.Our Lord then concludes this parable by applying it to His disciples (and thus the church). He urges His disciples to stay alert, because they, too, do not know the day or the hour of His return.This parable, like the others, portrays the return of Christ as sudden and unexpected,This parable, like the others, is based upon the premise that we do not know the day nor the hour of our Lord’s return , BUT if you do not believe in a PreTrib Rapture>>You know Exactly when the second coming is because the bible tells us!!!
