The brightness of our revelations depend upon the correctness of our doctrines, our building blocks

(God is Thought, God is Love, God is a Spirit – Eccl 12:7)



(Mat 25:1-5)  Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. Mat 25:2  And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Mat 25:3  They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: Mat 25:4  But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. Mat 25:5  While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.



(Mat 25:6-13)  And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Mat 25:7  Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. Mat 25:8  And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. Mat 25:9  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. Mat 25:10  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. Mat 25:11  Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. Mat 25:12  But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Mat 25:13  Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.



(Mat 25:1-5)  Then shall the kingdom of heaven [1] be likened unto ten virgins [persons who have committed themselves to serve only Jesus Christ], which took their lamps [i.e. their Bibles] [2], and went forth to meet the bridegroom [Jesus Christ]. And five of them were wise [Gk: thoughtful] [“sensible, intelligent and prudent” Amplif.] [3], and five were foolish [Gk: dull or stupid (as if shut up), heedless, blockheads] [“thoughtless, without forethought” Amplif.]. They that were foolish took their lamps [Bibles], and took no oil [Gk: olive oil /// olive tree] with them: But the wise took oil [revelations] in their vessels [in their receptacles (bodies – minds) used to carry things (thoughts)] with their lamps [Bibles]. While the bridegroom tarried [Gk: lingered], they all slumbered and slept. [4]

1.    heaven = Gk: (the abode of God); happiness, power, eternity; specifically the Gospel (Christianity)

2.    (Psa 119:105)  NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light [Heb: illumination (happiness)] unto my path.

3.    prudent = Dict: 1. capable of exercising sound judgment in practical matters, esp. as concerns one’s own interests 2. cautious or discreet in conduct; circumspect; not rash 3. managing carefully and with economy.

4.    Commentary: “and took no oil” = represents the oil of the Holy Spirit which is the anointing oil of revelations [a]. Revelations are an eternal gift from God [b]. Revelations are the received love of Father God; i.e., God revealing Himself, but only revealing Himself to His children. God’s children are “the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one [i.e., Satan].” (Mat 13:38). Presently, God’s revelations come to us asa still [Heb: quiet: calm] small voice(1 Kings 19:12), an internal voice softly quietly emanating from our subconscious minds, for that is where God (the Trinity) dwells within us.

a.     (2 Cor 1:21,22)  Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us [Gk: to smear or rub with oil], is God; Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest [Gk: a pledge, part of the purchase money, given in advance as security for the rest] [2 Cor 5:5; Eph 1:14] of the Spirit in our hearts.

b.    (Rom 11:29)  For the gifts [Gk: spiritual endowments] [revelations] and calling [Gk: invitation] [to eternal salvation] of God are without repentance [Gk: irrevocable].

5.    Commentary: The five foolish virgins who took no oil in their vessels represent a goodly portion of the world-wide (present, past, and future) professing church congregation who receive “no oil,” i.e., they receive no revelations, they receive none of God’s personalized love for them. Why not? Because they are unwilling [a] to submit their-selves to God and receive of Him.

a.     (2 Cor 8:12)  For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted [by God] according to that a man hath [understanding], and not according to that he hath not [understanding].

6.    Commentary: Figuratively, these persons are “the goats” of humanity (Mat 25:31-46) who characteristically are stubborn, disobedient, unruly, mutinous, insubordinate, defiant, disloyal, seditious, and rebellious, and because they have no indwelling love of God, in the judgment these persons shall not be saved.

a.     (Mat 13:38)  The field is the world; the good seed [the wheat - sheep] are the children of the kingdom; but the [poisonous - goats] tares are the children of the wicked one;

b.    Commentary: uneducated (ignorant) sheep (biblically illiterate persons) look like, think like, and act like goats, but in God’s appointed time, all of God’s sheep will eventually be “called” out and separated from the goats. Please note that the wheat (sheep) and tares (goats) both “grow together until the harvest” (Mat 13:30), and then experience their eternal separation by the angels. However the tares never become wheat, and the wheat never become tares, neither do sheep ever become goats nor do goats ever become sheep.

7.    (Mat 25:33,34)  And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand [the sheep], Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world [Gk: kosmos; “cosmos” (universe)]:

8.    (Mat 25:41)  Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand [the goats], Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

9.    (Rev 20:15)  And whosoever [Gk: any man] [who] was not found written in the book of life [from the foundation of the world] was cast into the lake of fire [that was “prepared for the devil and his angels” Mat 25:41].

a.     Commentary: the latter verses [# 7,8,9] are yet another proof that we are all fallen angels. A few of us fallen angels who are “willing” are being redeemed (being restored) back into good angels and into heaven (God’s abode) because we have repented (Gk: to think differently, reconsidered) of our evil ways and submitted ourselves under the authority of Jesus Christ and God. However, many of us fallen angels are “not willing” and remain unredeemed (not being restored) and are submitted to and under the eternal authority of Satan, and shall suffer the horrible consequences of being cast into everlasting fire” in “the lake of fire.”
