Jesus reveals a parable of the Ten Virgins - each having their own lamp, but only five had oil in their lamps. When the call sounded to meet the Bridegroom, only five were ready. We must have oil in our lamps when the call is sounded to meet the Lord.
Behold, the Bridegroom Cometh
Matthew 25: 1-13
We have read another of Jesus’ parables. Parables were used of our Lord to communicate a heavenly truth through an earthly illustration. This parable was given to the people of Israel, but there is application and instruction for each of us.
