“At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. Matthew 25:1-2
How are you preparing for the Kingdom of Heaven? How are you preparing for the return of Jesus? The parable of the ten virgins teaches us of the importance to be prepared and ready for our Kings return
The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. Matthew 25:3-4
Many have heard the Word of God, many have heard of Jesus Christ, but few keep his commandments or have faith. Going to Church means nothing unless your actually applying the Word of God to your daily life.
The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. Matthew 25:5
Ever since Jesus has ascended into heaven we have been eagerly awaiting his return. But as Jesus told us nobody will know the day and hour of his return except God. Therefor we must remain patient and stay alert for the signs of his return.
“At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’ “Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. Matthew 25:6-7
Make no mistake about it Jesus is coming back, God isn’t capable of lying and always fulfills his promises. When that trumpet sounds will you be ready? Or will you be taking off guard and unprepared?
The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out. “‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves. “But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.’ Matthew 25:8-10
Many have lost there focus, strayed from the Word of God and from Jesus. When the time comes it will be too late, they will look for someone to save them but there will be nobody holy left.
“Later the others also came. ‘Lord, Lord,’ they said, ‘open the door for us!'”But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.’ Matthew 25:11-12
Do you have a relationship with Jesus today? If you don’t know Jesus how do you expect him to know you? Jesus is a personal relationship with God, invite him into your life today and get to know him so when he returns he will know you.
“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour. Matthew 25:13
Look around at this world, we are living in the last days. Be prepared, the return of Jesus is soon, keep watch and stay in faith in Jesus name Amen
