At that time the Kingdom of Heaven will be like Ten Virgins
Who took their Lamps
And went out top meet the Bridegroom (Christ Jesus).
Five of them were foolish and Five were Wise.
The Foolish ones took their Lamps
But did not take any Oil (a type of the Holy Spirit) with them.
The Wise, however, took Oil in Jars along with their Lamps.
The Bridegroom was a long time in coming,
And they All became Drowsy and Fell Asleep.
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.
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 by the Oil,
The Bridegroom arrived.
The Virgins who were ready went in with Him
to the Wedding Banquet.
AND THE DOOR WAS SHUT.
Later the others also came.
'Sir! Sir!' they said,
OPEN THE DOOR FOR US!'
But He replied,
'I tell you the Truth,
I DON'T KNOW YOU.'
THEREFORE KEEP WATCH,
BECAUSE YOU DO NOT KNOW THE DAY OR THE HOUR
Christ Jesus is coming for a Bride
That is Full of the Oil of the Holy Spirit.
He Knows no other.
He is coming at a time when no one expects Him.
Only those who Keep Watch
And have enough Oil of the Holy Spirit--
Only those He Knows,
Will be able to receive Him.
TO THE OTHERS THE DOOR WILL BE SHUT.
