The key to a CRYSTAL CLEAR UNDERSTANDING of the difference between the WISE AND FOOLISH VIRGINS described by our Messiah Yahshua in Matthew, Chapter 25, verses 1 through 13 can be found in the Old Testament Book of Proverbs, Chapter 9 - as listed at the end of this article.
Fascinatingly, the first 12 verses of this Bible chapter list all of the qualities of the WISE VIRGINS who are filled with Wisdom, which is another Name for the Holy Spirit. But in the last 6 verses of the chapter, the FOOLISH VIRGINS are described with negative traits such as a lack of understanding, meaning that they're ignorant of the times, and not paying attention to the signs of Christ's soon return. This problem is not restricted to any one particular race such as the Jews, but applies to ALL people groups!
Also note that the food of the Wise Virgins listed in verse 5 of Proverbs 9 is bread and wine, which is highly suggestive of the bread and wine of Communion with Christ, whereas the food of the Foolish is listed in verse 17 as STOLEN bread and water without wine, meaning it does not represent the Body and Blood of Christ. In other words, the Foolish Virgins are not in a right relationship with Yahshua - even though they may be waiting for Him to return as a Bridegroom, which the Jews are definitely not! Remember, their false idea of the Messiah is that He will be ALL Warrior, and in NO WAY A LAMB!
Below is all of Proverbs, Chapter Nine, as it appears in the New King James Version of the Bible. I highly recommend meditating over and memorizing this chapter of the Bible because of its concentrated wisdom. May it bless you and help to prepare you for the Rapture.

Yet it is crucial to understand this Parable from both points of view in order to make correct deductions concerning the timing and nature of upcoming events in the Last Days
