The Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins in Matthew 25:1-13 appears below, and it is a very interesting parable that makes it quite clear that those who are not anxiously yet patiently WATCHING and who are not spiritually READY for Yahshua or Jesus' return because they are too busy having a good time - or are too distracted by the cares of the world when He comes - will be left behind when the door to Heaven where the Wedding Feast will take place is shut!
This same message is also conveyed in Matthew 26:40-41, where Yahshua said: “What! Could you not watch with Me one hour? 41 Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
In fact, the Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins was given not only to clarify Matthew 26:40-41, but because it also helps to clarify Yahshua's message before it in Matthew 24:37-44, when He proclaimed that one person will be taken while the other is left in the Rapture, which is when Yahshua and an army of His angels will visibly appear to rescue the saints. This event does NOT occur when He comes to fight the Battle of Armageddon, but must happen sometime before the events revealed in Revelation Chapter 7.
Sadly, evil people have twisted the interpretation of Matthew 24:37-44 (which also appears below) to mean that the wicked will be taken while the good are left behind. But as at Noah's Flood, Noah and his family were hidden away and lifted up high in the womb-like hull of the Ark by God (in a type of Rapture) while the wicked were left behind to be swept away by the Flood.
It shall be just like this when the Rapture happens! The reason this will be so is because the Rapture is connected to the Sixth Seal Judgment explained in Revelation Chapter 6, when God's Wrath will be begin to be poured out with a Great Earthquake and Pole Shift that will set off massive tidal waves and city swallowing earthquakes and volcanic eruptions such as this current world has never seen. At that time, many of the wicked who are LEFT BEHIND - especially those living along the coasts - will be swept away or fall into the crumbling Earth's crust to their deaths!
So read the Scriptures below with this new understanding, and prayerfully ask God to reveal this truth to you so you will always be WATCHING, and will not be in danger of being left behind!
“Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, 4 but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. 6 And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’ 7 Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 9 But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’ 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut. 11 Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’ 12 But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ 13 “WATCH therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.”
“But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 40 Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. 42 WATCH therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44 Therefore you also BE READY, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”
MARANATHA and God Bless You!
