PARABLE of the 10 virgins

 

Luke 12:35

King James Version

35 Let your loins be girded about, 

and your lights burning;


In the PREPARING for JESUS article, Scripture explained what having "our loins girded about" meant.

The verse also said to keep "'our lights burning".

In support of that verse, there's also the parable of the 10 virgins who were going to attend the wedding feast:

Matthew 25:1-13

King James Version

25 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened 

unto ten virgins, 

which took their lamps, 

and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

2 And five of them were wise, 

and five were foolish.

3 They that were foolish took their lamps, 

and took no oil with them:

4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

5 While the bridegroom tarried, 

they all slumbered and slept.

6 And at midnight there was a cry made, 

Behold, 

the bridegroom cometh; 

go ye out to meet him.

7 Then all those virgins arose, 

and trimmed their lamps.

8 And the foolish said unto the wise, 

Give us of your oil; 

for our lamps are gone out.

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.

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.

11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, 

Lord, Lord, open to us.

12 But he answered and said, 

Verily I say unto you, 

I know you not.

13 Watch therefore, 

for ye know neither the day nor the hour 

wherein the Son of man cometh.


BE ready, be awake, be aware, be holy, for the LORD JESUS can come any time GOD appoints.

It's all preparation now.

We must be blameless.

1 Thessalonians 5:23

King James Version

23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; 

and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body 

be preserved blameless 

unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
