1. Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
2. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
3. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
4. But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
5. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
6. AND AT MIDNIGHT there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
7. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
9. 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.
10. 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.
11. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I KNOW YOU NOT.
13. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh
1. THIS PROFOUND SCRIPTURE TAUGHT US THE FOOLISHNESS OF RELIGIOSITY, AND WISDOM OF SPIRITUALITY. IT IS POSSIBLE TO BE A CHRISTIAN, GO TO CHURCH, ACTIVE IN CHURCH SERVICE, GO TO HOUSE FELLOWSHIPS, FAST AND PRAY, GIVE OFFERINGS, LIKE THE FIVE VIRGINS AND STILL BE A SPIRITUAL FOOL.
2. MANY CHRISTIANS PRAY BUT ONLY VERY FEW WATCH. YOU MAY BE A PRAYERFUL CHRISTIAN, BUT IF YOU HAVE NO SPIRITUAL OIL, YOU CANNOT BE A WATCHFUL CHRISTIAN. YOU MAY HAVE THE LAMP OF CHRISTIANITY, BUT IF YOU LACK THE OIL THAT FUELS DESTINY BREAKTHROUGHS, YOU WILL NOT HAVE THE LIGHT 🪔💡🪔 THAT MAKES YOU SHINE ☀, AND NOT STUMBLE IN THE NIGHT SEASON WHICH THE WORLD IS GOING THROUGH NOW
3. THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS A KINGDOM OF VIRGINS, AND EVERY BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN IS LIKE A VIRGIN IN THE EYES OF GOD. BUT OUR BRIDEGROOM (JESUS CHRIST) IS NOT COMING FOR ALL VIRGINS, HE’S COMING ONLY FOR THE VIRGINS THAT HAVE EXTRA OIL OF VIRTUES
4. MY FATHER, GIVE ME THE OIL OF PATIENCE, WISDOM, AND UNDERSTANDING TO KEEP ME AWAKE AT EVERY MIDNIGHT SEASON (1 THESSALONIANS 5:2), TO WAIT FOR YOU, EVEN IF YOU TARRY IN COMING FOR ME, IN THE NAME OF JESUS
5. MY FATHER, NEVER LET ME TAKE FOR GRANTED YOUR LOVE FOR ME, NEVER LET ME FALL INTO THE CAMP OF CARELESS AND NONCHALANT CHRISTIANITY, IN THE NAME OF JESUS
6. POWER TO BUY THE OIL OF TRUTH AND SELL IT NOT (PROVERBS 23:23), FAAAAALLLLLLLL UPON MY LIFE NOOOOOOWWWWWW IN THE NAME OF JESUS
7. MY BRIDEGROOM, SATURATE MY LIFE WITH THE OIL OF INSTRUCTIONS, WISDOM, AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE TIMES AND SEASONS, IN THE NAME OF JESUS
8. MY FATHER, GIVE ME THE OIL OF FAITH TO WAIT FOR MY BRIDEGROOM AND KEEP IT BURNING 🔥🔥🔥TILL HE COMES FOR ME, IN THE NAME OF JESUS
9. I RECEIVE POWER TO WALK IN THE NARROW PATH AND THROUGH THE SMALL GATE OF HEAVEN FOR MY WEDDING TO THE HOLY LAMB OF GOD, IN THE NAME OF JESUS
