You know the story, you’ve heard it throughout your life since childhood, so I am not going to start from the beginning of Christ parable of the five foolish and five wise virgins, I am going to start at the point when “they all became drowsy and fell asleep”

Then, when they were least expected, there was the sound of a mighty rushing wind and it was closer now than it had ever been in the past and through that wind and turmoil of this world somehow they even thought they could hear the trumpet of Gabriel calling it is midnight, it is midnight, it is time to go home.

In addition, your Savior approaches with thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand of His celestial choir singing holy, holy, holy unto the “Lamb that was slain from the foundation of the world.”

All of a sudden the dead in Christ rises to meet him in the air along with all the faithful who endured till the end. At that point “all ten of the virgins wake up and begin to trim their lamps realizing the dream was a warning.

The foolish virgins then say to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out, the Bridegroom will be here soon. It’s amazing “they all became drowsy and fell asleep”10virgin1 at the same time, also all ten of the virgins had the same dream at the same time, as the parable continues in Matt. 25:9-12 (NIV) the wise virgins reply “No!!!

[There may not be enough for all of us if we give you part of ours]. Therefore 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 [and] The wise virgins who were ready went in with Him to the wedding banquet. And [my friends] the door was shut.

virgins9“Later the [foolish virgins] returned. [knocking on the door frantically, just like when Noah shut the door of the ark, at that point it is to late, the unrighteous will remain unrighteous, their fate is sealed but they still cry out “Lord, Lord, open the door for us!”

“But [the Bridegroom] replied, [the saddest words, they had ever heard repeated] “I don’t know you.” [because you never witnessed too my sheep, or fed my flock when they were hungry and thirsty or provided shelter and clothes for them and you never visited the sick or those in prison. And why was my time and money squandered on the foolishness of this world?

Yes, “I do not know you.” My friends we have “all become drowsy and fallen asleep” while the prophecy of Matt. 24 is being played out before our eyes as nations rise against nations, and kingdoms against kingdoms, famines throughout the world especially for the word of God, earthquakes in various places.

Consistent with this, Crime and corruption is abounding as wickedness increases and the love of most grows colder and colder each day. Yes my friends, we have “become drowsy andimages fallen asleep” But God’s grace have not left us because if we are God’s chosen, we still here that still small voice that is telling us to “come out of Babylon.”

Please come out and do not share in her sins and if you come out and unto me “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.

And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. Then you will live in the [promise]land…and you will be my people, and I will be your God.” Ezekiel 36:26-28 (NIV) Wake up my friends, wake up! and “keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour” that the trumpet of Gabriel will sound “The midnight cry”


So friends stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
