Extra Oil + Lamps = Enter The Kingdom
It’s very interesting how Jesus talks about the 10 virgins. Five of them where prepared and the other 5 weren’t
Five of them had there lamps and extra oil, to light there path in the night. The other five just had there lamps and no extra oil.
So the time came it was getting late they all fell asleep. Than around midnight a voice cried THE BRIDEGROOM HAS COME!!
They all got up and went to the place where the bridegroom would be. But the virgins that didn’t have the extra oil, asked the virgins that did, give us some oil so we can go to the door where the bridegroom is at an enter.
The virgins that had extra oil said no. go and buy from people who sell. Five prepared virgins go towards the door where the bridegroom is. The other five unprepared virgins went to the market or to some who sold oil at night time.
The prepared ones entered and the doors closed. The unprepared ones where looking for the oil. It looks like according to this story they did find oil because they made it to the doors where the bridegroom was.
When they cried out they said open up we are here Lord, we made it. And the Lord answered, I do not know you.
This is what got my attention the answer of “I do not know you”. this means the Lord will tell many in that day, for being unprepared I do not know you.
Its very important body of Christ that we prepare ourselves. Have extra anointing inside of us , so that way we will always have light. The word say that his word is a lamp to my feet and light to my path.
Psalm 119:105 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
Its obvious that the prepared virgins or the prepared body of Christ. Has oil (anointing) and lamps (word of God) that light there paths to where the bridegroom is.
The unprepared virgins just have lamps (word of God) but no extra oil (anointing). And if there is no oil in the lamp theres no light. Remember back than they used oil to have lamps lit and that produced light for our paths. Kind of like a flashlight in our era. You shine the flash light ahead or at your feet to see. But if it runs out of batteries your stuck.
Lets be prepared with extra anointing so we don’t get disqualified. And watchful because we do not know when the Lord will come. We just know if we follow the prophecies in the bible and see whats happening in the world. We will see that certain prophesies have been fulfilled already there is still some left, but thats about it we don’t know when He will come. Amen.
Here’s the Scripture:
Matthew 25 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
25 Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom.
2 Five of them were foolish (thoughtless, without forethought) and five were wise (sensible, intelligent, and prudent).
3 For when the foolish took their lamps, they did not take any [extra] oil with them;
4 But the wise took flasks of oil along with them [also] with their lamps.
5 While the bridegroom lingered and was slow in coming, they all began nodding their heads, and they fell asleep.
6 But at midnight there was a shout, Behold, the bridegroom! Go out to meet him!
7 Then all those virgins got up and put their own lamps in order.
8 And the foolish said to the wise, Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.
9 But the wise replied, There will not be enough for us and for you; go instead to the dealers and buy for yourselves.
10 But while they were going away to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were prepared went in with him to the marriage feast; and the door was shut.
11 Later the other virgins also came and said, Lord, Lord, open [the door] to us!
12 But He replied, I solemnly declare to you, I do not know you [I am not acquainted with you].
13 Watch therefore [give strict attention and be cautious and active], for you know neither the day nor the hour when the Son of Man will come.
Love you all be prepared for the rapture unless you want to stay than don’t prepare live your life any way you want.
