THE "READY" SIDE




1. Virgins are a sign for Holiness and Purity.

2. They carried oil IN their vessels and IN their lamps.

a. See scriptures for "chosen vessels"
b. Read Ezekiel 3:17

3. The Wise were not doormats. They were assertive. They were not hesitant to say "NO".

a. Saying no CAN denote wisdom.
b. Were they saying? Get your own light. Get your own anointing.

c. Discuss how each person's anointing is custom fit. Not to be shared. We are each unique with the same Holy Spirit with God's artistry.

4. The Wise Vessels were watchers and listeners. They valued the Light. It was important to them.

5. All of these principles can be applied to the church / rapture.






MATTHEW 25
"READY OR NOT? "









"THE FOOLISH 5"



1. They "LOOKED" Holy..

a. They were virgins who were godless/ impious / religious.

b. They had access to lamps {The Word}.."He was clothed in vesture dipped in blood and His Name is called THE WORD OF GOD".

c. They had lamps {The Word} but did not respect it or use it properly.

2. They were lazy, irresponsible and not organized. They did not prepare or watch for the bridegroom. (Discuss how a bride prepares for her wedding. The Love of her life, the detail, the precision and the anticipation of the bride for her love. Nothing is left unkempt. The watching and antcipation for that day is oompared to none other in her life.)

3. The Light was not important to them.

4. They "heard" in the natural not with their hearts (Spirit).

5. They were FOLLOWERS {JESUS SAID "FOLLOW ME" not men or a church or a mantra}. They wanted to live off of the "oil", the "anointing" of the Wise women.

a. However, you cannot follow a man.{Jesus was the only exception because He was "THE LIGHT". You have to follow The Christ.

b. Signs and wonders do not follow a man they only follow "THE WORD" WHO IS THE CHRIST.

c. You cannot hide behind someone else's anointing. We each have our own custom fit anointing. It is a marvelous unique framing God gives each of us. Salvation is free but God requires that we do the work of a Warrior.

6. They were not watchers. They did not think Christ's return was important.

7. Jesus said "He never knew them". They were not only foolish; they were lost and bound for hell.

THOUGHTS....

JOB 29:6

WHEN MY STEPS WERE BATHED IN BUTTER AND THE ROCK POURED OUT FOR ME STREAMS OF OIL.

PROVERBS 30:33

"SURELY THE CHURNING OF THE MILK {MILK OF THE WORD} BRINGETH FORTH BUTTER"...

WERE THE VIRGIN BRIDES WISE BECAUSE THEY KNEW HOW TO GET THEIR OIL SUPERNATURALLY?

WERE THEY WISE WITH DISCERNMENT, KNOWING THE FOOLISH 5 WERE IMPIOUS, GODLESS AND RELIGIOUS ONLY LOOKING HOLY THEREFORE THEY KNEW COULD NOT GET OIL AS THEY DID "SUPERNATURALLY"...BUT THEY HAD TO BUY IT.

YOU CANNOT BUY THE ANOINTING. IF YOU TRY IT OF COURSE IT IS COUNTERFEIT.

SCRIPTURES... LUKE 11:35...THERE IS A LIGHT THAT IS DARKNESS
