Those who were ready, went in with the Bridegroom, and the door was shut.
Contrary to what some are saying because they find God's Commandments burdensome or vile, as in the case of those Christians that accept homosexuality, sexual fornication outside of wedlock, and abortion, Jesus or Yahshua's Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins is all about the Sanctification of the Church, and what constitutes one's worthiness to partake in the REWARD of the Rapture.

If believers in Christ are not Sanctified after they are Justified by Faith in Yahshua's Sacrifice for Sin, which can happen if they fall into unrepentant sin, they will lose rewards such as protection from calamity and shielding from demonic oppression long before they appear at the Judgment Seat of Christ. They may also suffer more acutely than their Sanctified brethren when periods of tribulation intensify due to the fact that they are opening themselves up to demonic attack by ignoring their need to be holy or set apart for the Kingdom of God. Unfortunately, the need to be holy is not stressed enough in Churches today, and the result has been gross and unrepentant sinfulness within the Church. They seem to have overlooked the Apostle Peter's teaching regarding our need to be holy:
“Therefore, get your minds ready for work, keep yourselves under control, and fix your hopes fully on the gift you will receive when Yeshua the Messiah is revealed. 14 As people who obey God, do not let yourselves be shaped by the evil desires you used to have when you were still ignorant. 15 On the contrary, following the Holy One who called you, become holy yourselves in your entire way of life; 16 since the Tanakh (i.e. Old Testament) says, “You are to be holy because I am holy.” (See Leviticus 11:44, 45; 19:2; 20:7) 17 Also, if you are addressing as Father the one who judges impartially according to each person’s actions, you should live out your temporary stay on earth in fear. 18 You should be aware that the ransom paid to free you from the worthless way of life which your fathers passed on to you did not consist of anything perishable like silver or gold; 19 on the contrary, it was the costly bloody sacrificial death of the Messiah, as of a lamb without defect or spot.” ~ 1 Peter 1:13-19 (CJB)
The Apostle Peter made it clear in this passage that we are all called to be holy or set apart for God's service, just as Yahshua was, and we cannot be good servants for Christ unless we strive to be holy just as our Messiah is. In order to do this, we need to take the proverb which says that “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” (See Proverbs 1:7; Psalm 111:10) to heart and fear the God who has redeemed us lest we slip into sin. As such, the following allegorical connections to various references in the Parable of the Ten Virgins should not be overlooked:

The OIL in the Ten Virgin's Lamps is a symbol connected to the Holy Spirit. It represents our striving after holiness through the SANCTIFYING GIFTS and fruits of the Holy Spirit. Those who have shown themselves approved by striving to keep Christ's Commandments to live holy, love-filled lives, seeking after plenty of spiritual gifts, and producing good spiritual fruit are seen as WISE. Meanwhile, those virgins who have no clue what it means to be holy, do not strive for holiness, have few spiritual gifts, are guilty of unrepentant sin, and more often produce rotten spiritual fruit instead of good, are FOOLISH.

In the case of the Foolish Virgins, their virginity is a symbol of their SALVATION, just as it is for the Wise Virgins. But even though they are all JUSTIFIED BY FAITH in Yahshua, and seen as pure and holy virgins, they are not all SANCTIFIED BY GOOD WORKS in keeping with their spiritual calling. This is because half of them have not been taught to examine their behavior regularly, repent of wrong-doing, and strive to better honor their commitment to be like Christ, Who is holiness personified:
“Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ (i.e. Yahshua Ha Mashiach) is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified.” - 2 Corinthians 13:5 
In fact, this personal act of somber inner examination should be encouraged as an essential part of every Communion service or enactment of the Lord's Supper! Otherwise, how do you think that some of the saints partaking of the Lord's Supper were eating and drinking JUDGMENT upon themselves?
“For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.” - 1 Corinthians 11:29 
The Apostle Paul also went on to say that not recognizing our unworthiness to ritually partake of Christ's body and blood is the reason why some believers get sick and die young.
“For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.” - 1 Corinthians 11:30-32
Though some say this was ONLY a warning not to be a glutton when partaking of the Lord's Supper, it makes no sense that God would allow believers to get sick and die just for eating too much! This is because, by eating too much, they are showing that they have no reverence for Yahshua's sacrifice, and this is what caused them to do this. There are also other places in Scripture where we are told that we can be condemned for not seeking the power of the Holy Spirit to help us to become holy and righteous. This is why Yahshua said:
“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” - John 3:5-8
Yahshua also said: “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” - John 3:18-21
To better understand this possibility of judgment for not discerning the holiness of the Lord's body which we are to become a part of, and to understand the rest of this article, read Revelation Chapter 3, verses 7 through 22, which reveal Christ's praises and judgments directed toward two of the Seven Churches that exist in these Last Days before the Rapture. According to this section of the final book of the New Testament, the BRIDE OF CHRIST is identified as the Church of Philadelphia, and by way of the association of the Five Wise Virgins with the Bride, those in five of the other churches outside of the Church of Laodicea that learn how to love God and one another without making the Gospel null and void, and who succeed in doing so before the Rapture:
“He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.” - Revelation 3:12
Did you catch the fact in the above scripture that the Church of Philadelphia is the only Church told that Yahshua will write on them, inscribing the Name of God and the name of the New Jerusalem (which is called the Bride of Christ in Revelation 21:9-11)? By marking them with these sacred names, Yahshua is sealing them as His Bride! This is the main reason why I can confidently say that the Bride is that Church, and the Wise Virgins come from among the other five churches outside of the Church of Laodicea, where all of it's members are in danger of being left behind. Because the Faithful Church made up of the Church of Brotherly Love and her wise attendants is the only congregation outside of the Martyrs in the Church of Smyrna that have died before the Rapture which exemplify Yahshua's teaching to love YHWH God and one another.

"And the Foolish said to the Wise, 'give us some of your oil'..."
Yahshua's Bride is full of brotherly or agape love, and her acceptable handmaidens are the Wise Virgins from the other churches that had some good characteristics as well as problems doing God's will, but were not as bad off as the Laodicean Church full of lukewarm believers that despise their need for Sanctification, which is the process of becoming holy and righteous by loving submission to Christ and the Holy Spirit. This is why Yahshua says to them: "because you have kept My COMMAND to persevere, I will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world" (Rev. 3:10). Thus, they are the ONLY CHURCH promised deliverance from the Great Tribulation or worldwide hour of trial!

Though some like to twist the truth, the central message of the Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins is not about requiring saints to do good works to be saved, but about the Bride and her entourage's active and demonstrative LOVE for Yahshua. If you love your Messiah, you will want to keep His commandments out of love. In addition, you will want to draw very near to Christ through His Spirit, and do as the Spirit directs you. If you're hearing the Spirit correctly, then you will be directed to keep Yahshua's commandments to love others and flee from sin. This is why Yahshua said:
“‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” - Matthew 22:37-40
If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.” - John 14:15-17 
Note that in the above scriptures, Yahshua is saying that the criterion for receiving the Holy Spirit is the desire to KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS, and that the Moral Law found in the Pentateuch and the Prophetic books of the Old Testament are still in affect. These same Moral Laws are found in His Sermon on the Mount (See Matthew Chapters 5 through 7). These embody Christ's commands to love our Heavenly Father and one another with our whole hearts, and to watch for His Second Coming in the Rapture (Mark 13:34-37). Thus, those who are truly born again of the Spirit of God become children of God through the Seal of the Holy Spirit, not because they have earned their Salvation, but because they have been Sanctified, having diligently sought to earn spiritual REWARDS. Those who seek Sanctification earn very important rewards, including the gift of spiritual discernment, and powerful protection from demonic oppression (which can cause all manner of sickness and disease), and shielding from satanic attack.

Like the gifts of the Holy Spirit, the RAPTURE is a REWARD for Sanctification, not an automatic gift of Salvation. Unlike one's Salvation through the belief or acceptance of the sacrifice of the Blood of Christ to pay for all our sins, our rewards can be lost. The Spiritual Reward process is not part of the act of Salvation that will allow saints to live with Yahshua forever upon their deaths, but of deliverance from judgment and suffering while still alive. The following verses help us to understand what the Bible says about keeping the commandments under the New Covenant:

"Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps."
Matthew 5:19 - “Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”
(NOTE: Christ is speaking about the Commandments He gave in His Sermon on the Mount, which emphasized the Moral Law.) 
John 14:15-16 - “If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever...”
John 14:21 - “He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”
John 15:9-10 - “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. 10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.”
As an example of what not heeding the preceding scriptural passages and breaking the commandments does, look at what Yahshua says to the Church of Laodicea at the end of Revelation Chapter 3. There, Yahshua says that He may spit the Laodicean variety of Christians out of His mouth if they do not repent, and this act of spitting them out will necessarily be at the time of the Rapture. As a result of not repenting, they will be spit out or left behind because they disgust Yahshua with their lukewarm unwillingness to stand up for their faith in HIM.

This is the stark, naked truth. If it upsets you, it's because you are confusing the Justification received through accepting the shed blood of Christ as a perfect atonement sacrifice for your sins with the need to love Yahshua the Holy One, and thus become Sanctified. These are two different things that are mutually dependent upon one another, but which are not always present in every saved believer until they truly repent and behave in accord with Christ's commands. So it is our duty to lovingly and gently instruct fellow believers in this way:
“Do not rebuke an older man, but exhort him as a father, younger men as brothers, 2 older women as mothers, younger women as sisters, with all purity.” - 1 Timothy 5:1-2
Yahshua is the One who first loved us, and chose to be sacrificed for us, and we are called to show our love for Him and His Salvation, and our love for one another by keeping His commandments. To lovingly keep those commandments, we must constantly be striving for Sanctification and approval by God, which we cannot be rewarded for if we do not possess it. That is why the Foolish Virgins get shut out of the Wedding at the time of the Rapture. They do not possess the required Sanctification needed to receive the Blessed Hope and reward of the Rapture.

In closing, I just wanted to say this:


Yahshua didn’t just shed His blood to forgive us of our sins, but also to deliver us from the power of sin by covering us with His righteousness, and nailing our sin to the Cross (Romans 3:21-26; Colossians 2:13-15)! He came to turn us from sinners into a royal priesthood full of SAINTS! (1 Peter 2:9)

I don’t know about you, but the old ‘sinner’ in me died (Romans 6:11), was buried with Christ (Romans 6:2, 4), and via Christ's resurrection and His giving of the Holy Spirit, I am now and forever a New Creation in Yahshua or Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:17)! I am also obedient to Yahshua, keeping His commandments so that I cannot be condemned (John 3:36).

Deciphering the Parable of the Ten Virgins

Who Do You Profess To Follow? Yahshua (Jesus) Or Lucifer?
Before I share my heart with you in this new article, I want to point out that this is a follow up article in response to the criticism I received from another article about the British and European Royals that I posted on my ministry blog prior to this one. If you haven't read it yet, CLICK HERE to access it, and it will open in a new tab of your browser.

Now that I've set the stage for what follows, let me say that I am positive that we are living in the very Last Days before the Rapture. We live in a world where anything goes, and immorality and cruelty abound. If it brings some immoral person pleasure, the wicked among sexual deviants, satanists, atheists, pagans, Wiccans and the elite say that they can do whatever they like - though today it still must mostly be behind closed doors. They can also partake in the more acceptable pastimes of following the tabloids surrounding the Royals, and Movie Stars and Sports Stars - even though there are numerous exposes showing that many Movie Stars and Sports Stars and Royal personages are not the paragons of virtue that they like to portray themselves as in public.

That's why I'm not alright with the fact that some people like to focus on the entertainment and sports tabloids. Because they often find so much pleasure and amusement in it, and it becomes a focus of their free time and discussions with others, I see it as a form of idolatry when it becomes an obsessive focus in someone's life. Yet billions of people around the world are clueless about the idolatrous and Satanic side of the people, businesses and venues that amuse, fascinate and entertain them.

I have developed such a different view of the people in the tabloids in the past 15 years or so because I've seen the copious research that exposes the Satanic side within the Royal, Movie, TV, Sports and Music Entertainment Industries. From what I've seen in the dark occult exposes from avid Truth Seekers like Vigilant Citizen and Isaac Weishaupt at Illuminati Watcher, to name a couple that I respect, a satanic undercurrent runs deep through all of these venues that we seek to find entertainment in, and that serve as idols for many who are less than discerning.

I certainly wish that I could forget what I've seen and heard, and pretend that these people and entertainment institutions are worthy of my admiration. But I sadly know that they are not. However, I am not going to condemn anyone for their love or like of any of them. That's between them and God, and I am not their judge, nor do I seek to judge the Royals or Sports or Movie or Music stars on a personal level. However, I can judge their status in the eyes of the world as maligned, and as an affront to God - because it absolutely is.

All who believe in Yahshua or Jesus are royal heirs with Him, and they deserve to be treated that way. The sooner we believers realize this, and start treating ourselves and one another as royal priests and superstars of servant-based leadership, the less these Royals and others who try to lord it over us, or serve to become idols for us, will appeal to us. We won't hate them, but will lovingly let them go in favor of seeing the love, power and self worth we believers have been given in the eyes of our loving heavenly Father and His Son and Spirit. So, instead of emulating the rich and famous of this world, we will seek to emulate our Savior, and His apostles and disciples instead.

As far as I'm concerned, and in the eyes of many of my friends, I did nothing wrong by using the Royals as sterling examples of misplaced IDOLS that are unworthy of our admiration as Royals unless they act in a manner that shows their love of Christ. This means that, unless they openly express that faith in Jesus or Yahshua BY NAME in public, which most of them never do (including Trump), then they are not true Christians or Messianics. Saying the word "God" is just not enough! As Yahshua said:
Mark 8:36-38 - “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? 37 Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 38 For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.”
Though some entertainers and movie stars have recently been broadcasting that they are Christians now, I am quite suspect of them all, and would advise caution before believing that they have made a clean break from their occult laden pasts. After all, this is the Last of the Last Days, and as such, there are many false prophets and teachers everywhere. Furthermore, we are a part of the adulterous and sinful generation of the Last Days that Yahshua was talking about, and speaking directly to in the above scripture. We are the ones who need to uphold the Word of God and God's Moral Law in this lawless age of hatred of all things Christian.

We are the ones who stand condemned already unless we begin or continue to openly profess our Faith in Christ to a lost and dying world. We need to make that our life's focus while acting in a loving manner that is acceptable to God. This is, after all, what Yahshua asked us to do in so many different ways throughout the Gospels. So that is all that I am asking fellow brethren in the Faith to try to do.

In closing, I hope that we all will remember these wise words from the Apostle Paul as we await Yahshua's glorious appearing in the Rapture:
Philippians 4:8 - “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.”
