Appointed Time

Does He Tarry?

Hebrews 10:13
“For yet a little while, And He who is coming will come and will not tarry.

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is long suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. 11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

14 Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless; 15 and consider that the long suffering of our Lord is salvation.

The day and hour of the Lord is perfect.  Father in Heaven, make us ready.
Mark 1, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, 15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”

Zephaniah 3
A Faithful Remnant
“Therefore wait for Me,” says the Lord,
“Until the day I rise up for plunder;
My determination is to gather the nations
To My assembly of kingdoms,
To pour on them My indignation,
All My fierce anger;
All the earth shall be devoured
With the fire of My jealousy.
“For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language,
That they all may call on the name of the Lord,
To serve Him with one accord.
10 
From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia
My worshipers,
The daughter of My dispersed ones,
Shall bring My offering.
11 
In that day you shall not be shamed for any of your deeds
In which you transgress against Me;
For then I will take away from your midst
Those who rejoice in your pride,
And you shall no longer be haughty
In My holy mountain.
12 
I will leave in your midst
A meek and humble people,
And they shall trust in the name of the Lord.
13 
The remnant of Israel shall do no unrighteousness
And speak no lies,
Nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth;
For they shall feed their flocks and lie down,
And no one shall make them afraid.”
Joy in God’s Faithfulness
14 
Sing, O daughter of Zion!
Shout, O Israel!
Be glad and rejoice with all your heart,
O daughter of Jerusalem!
15 
The Lord has taken away your judgments,
He has cast out your enemy.
The King of Israel, the Lord, is in your midst;
You shall see disaster no more.
16 
In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem:
“Do not fear;
Zion, let not your hands be weak.
17 
The Lord your God in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.”

Habakkuk 2:3, For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.

I will stand my watch
And set myself on the rampart,
And watch to see what He will say to me,
And what I will answer when I am corrected.
The Just Live by Faith
Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.
“Behold the proud,
His soul is not upright in him;

But the just shall live by his faith.

The Day and the Hour Unknown

The Day and the Hour Unknown

Matthew 25:13 Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.”

Luke 12:37 Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them. 38 And if he should come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. 

36 But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only
The Bride of Christ is waiting for the Father to send out His Son.  We are at this stage of fulfillment of the Jewish wedding ceremony.

37 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. 
This coming of the Bridegroom coincides with the Day of the Lord, the beginning of the judgment on the nations, known as the Great Tribulation.

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. 
There will be a division of all men and women on the earth.  Many will be raptured by the Lord to Himself, the Bridegroom.  Many will call out to be saved and receive grace through the blood of the Lamb.  Many will be taken by the thief.

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. 
The thief is not Messiah coming for His bride that breaks into the house.  
John 10:10, The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

If you are not watching for the Bridegroom Messiah, waiting in your wedding garments of Christ’s righteousness by the Blood of the Lamb, the only Righteous Judge will come upon you like a thief in the Day of the Lord.

Revelation 3:3, Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.

Revelation 16:15, “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.”

44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.


1 Thessalonians 5 But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.
11 Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.

1 Peter 4:7 But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers. And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”

Hebrews 10:36 For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:
37 
“For yet a little while,
And He who is coming will come and will not tarry.
38 
Now the just shall live by faith;
But if anyone draws back,
My soul has no pleasure in him.”

2 Peter 3 New King James Version (NKJV)
God’s Promise Is Not Slack
Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), 2 that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, 3 knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” 5 For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, 6 by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
The Day of the Lord
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. 11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
Be Steadfast
14 Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless; 15 and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation—as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, 16 as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.
17 You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked; 18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.

MESSIAH COMES

The King of Salem Comes.

Luke 12:51 Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division.

The Son of Man, Son of God is coming to gather His own.  This is the first fulfillment of these Scriptures.  His Word was written to Israel, and this prophecy will be fulfilled in completeness in Christ Jesus for Israel within the next seven years.  This is the hour for the sons and daughters of Adam.  The Master of the house is coming and you must be ready for Him!  When He knocks, you must open to Him immediately to dine with Him!

Hebrews 12:25 See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, 26 whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 27 Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.

Mark 13:27 And then He will send His angels, and gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest part of earth to the farthest part of heaven.

Romans 11:25 For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. 26 And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written:
“The Deliverer will come out of Zion,
And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;


Acts 2:20 
The sun shall be turned into darkness, (8/21/17)
And the moon into blood,  (Blood Moon Tetrads 2014-2015)
Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.
21 
And it shall come to pass
That whoever calls on the name of the Lord
Shall be saved.


John 14:6, Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Jesus is the only WAY.  Jesus is the only DOOR.  Jesus is the only GATE.  The BLOOD of Jesus Christ ALONE makes YOU WORTHY of ESCAPE.
John 21:36 Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

Isaiah 55:
Seek the Lord while He may be found,
Call upon Him while He is near.

HE WILL MAKE A HIGHWAY FOR HIS PEOPLE.  YOU MUST COME BY FAITH.
Isaiah 11:16 
There will be a highway for the remnant of His people
Who will be left from Assyria,
As it was for Israel
In the day that he came up from the land of Egypt.

Isaiah 45:20 Assemble yourselves and come; Draw near together, You who have escaped from the nations. They have no knowledge, Who carry the wood of their carved image, And pray to a god that cannot save.

IF THE FLOOD WATERS OR THE FIRE LIES BETWEEN YOU AND JESUS, YOU MUST WALK THROUGH IT BY FAITH.
Isaiah 43
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name;
You are Mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.
For I am the Lord your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;

Isaiah 11
10 
“And in that day there shall be a Root of Jesse,
Who shall stand as a banner to the people;
For the Gentiles shall seek Him,
And His resting place shall be glorious.”

Come!  He is calling you to the assembly of the church of the firstborn.  This is who He is gathering!  
22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, 23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.

Jesus is gathering His Bride, His church, “His people that were not His people” from the entire earth to His Holy Hill.  He will refine and purify us, wed us, and then raise us up in three days to His Father’s House!
Come, and let us return to the Lord;
For He has torn, but He will heal us;
He has stricken, but He will bind us up.
After two days He will revive us;
On the third day He will raise us up,
That we may live in His sight.
Let us know,
Let us pursue the knowledge of the Lord.
His going forth is established as the morning;
He will come to us like the rain,
Like the latter and former rain to the earth.


Come to Messiah!  Come to the King of Kings.  Come to the Bridegroom.  Go out to Meet Him!  He has made the way and will “rapture” you to Himself!

Behold, I am coming quickly!

Behold, I am coming quickly! 
John 3:13 No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 “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 14 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 28 You have heard Me say to you, ‘I am going away and coming back to you.’ If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, ‘I am going to the Father,’ for My Father is greater than I.
29 And now I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe

John 3:27 John answered and said, “A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven. 28 You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, ‘I am not the Christ,’ but, ‘I have been sent before Him.’ 29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. 30 He must increase, but I must decrease. 31 He who comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all. 32 And what He has seen and heard, that He testifies; and no one receives His testimony. 33 He who has received His testimony has certified that God is true. 34 For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure. 35 The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand. 36 He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”

Hebrews 12:22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, 23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.
Hear the Heavenly Voice
25 See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, 26 whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 27 Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 29 For our God is a consuming fire.

Revelation 1:4 Grace to you and peace from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth.
To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Acts 2:21 
And it shall come to pass
That whoever calls on the name of the Lord
Shall be saved.’

Romans 10:12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. 13 For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Revelation 22
Then he said to me, “These words are faithful and true.” And the Lord God of the holy prophets sent His angel to show His servants the things which must shortly take place.
Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.”

12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”

16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”
17 And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.

20 He who testifies to these things says, Surely I am coming quickly.”
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. 

Amen.

THE NARROW GATE

The Narrow Gate

Luke 13:23 Then one said to Him, “Lord, are there few who are saved?”
And He said to them, 24 Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able. 25 When once the Master of the house has risen up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open for us,’ and He will answer and say to you, ‘I do not know you, where you are from,’ 26 then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets.’ 27 But He will say, ‘I tell you I do not know you, where you are from. Depart from Me, all you workers of iniquity.’28 There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and yourselves thrust out.29 They will come from the east and the west, from the north and the south, and sit down in the kingdom of God. 30 And indeed there are last who will be first, and there are first who will be last.”
The Master of the house is coming.  Be watchful for Him.  He is inviting you to eat bread with Him in the Kingdom of God.  
55 “Ho! Everyone who thirsts,
Come to the waters;
And you who have no money,
Come, buy and eat.
Yes, come, buy wine and milk
Without money and without price.
Why do you spend money for what is not bread,
And your wages for what does not satisfy?
Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good,
And let your soul delight itself in abundance.
Incline your ear, and come to Me.
Hear, and your soul shall live;
When He knocks, open to Him immediately. 
Luke 12:35 “Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning; 36 and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately.  
Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 
Again, there is a narrow gate to gain entrance.  Jesus says that few will find it.  
Matthew 7:13 Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
What is this NARROW GATE?
TO ENTER THIS KINGDOM OF GOD YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.  What does this mean?
John 3:Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
There is no gate more narrow than the birth canal.  You must come through the birth canal, a birth of the flesh and a birth of the Spirit.  You must be born twice.
Now I do not think the first birth, the birth of the flesh, is speaking of your own natural birth. For you can not be natural born and then simply washed by water and Spirit to enter the Kingdom.  You must come through blood.  The blood of your natural birth is not enough to make you righteous.  In fact you are not a child of God as a natural born child.  You are born with the sin of Adam, born of corrupted seed.  You are a child of the devil until you receive the free gift of redemption.   I last wrote about the Door.  You can not get into the Kingdom, the Sheepfold, the Wedding Feast, or the Rapture Basket without gaining entrance through the Door that is opened by the Key of David.  You can only enter through the one door, Jesus.  You enter through the Door of Jesus by faith with the Holy Spirit key, into the Father's kingdom.
Jesus, God made flesh, was born of flesh, born of the Virgin Mary.  In the first birth of the flesh, the baby is washed in blood as it passes through the birth canal.  Jesus was born in the flesh, covered in the blood of a first birth, and then He was washed in the water and Spirit made manifest in His baptism that all things were fulfilled.  He was fully the God-Man.  So must we be birthed in blood, covered in His blood, and then washed in the second birth by water and Spirit.
How do I know if I have been born again?  What does it mean to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ?  It is a work of repentance.  It is not your work.  It is a work that God does in you.  Repentance is your response to the extraordinary loving work of God.  You may need to get some eye salve if you have lived a carefree, blessed, and rich life.  For those of us who have had heaven on earth, we take God's grace and everlasting gift for granted. We are rich, so how can we see our poverty?  We clothe ourselves in the most comfortable and stylish name brands, so how can we see our nakedness?  We cover our secret evil thoughts with good works, looking good even to ourselves on the outside, so how can we see our hidden depravity?  We esteem ourselves with education, knowledge and wisdom, so how can we see that we are blind, deaf, and foolish?  We are so focused on self-help, promoting our love of self and establishing our self-esteem, how can know that we are wretched in our pride?  You must be forgiven much to love much.  So until you see yourself as God sees you in your poor, naked, blind, miserable, wretched state outside of Christ Jesus, you will not understand the blood of Christ Jesus.  When you see yourself as you really are and are overwhelmed with His love for you in your poverty, you will understand the free gift of His blood.  He chose you first.  You will be overwhelmed by His grace.  You stand before God, a son, a daughter, righteous before Him in Jesus' righteousness alone.  You receive this inexplicable gift, that He became poor, naked, miserable, and wretched for you, cursed, hanging on a tree that you might be set free and live with Him forever.  If you have received that gift, there is no more to offer Him but a sacrifice of praise.  You do not make yourself more worthy with your good works.  You will be so in love with Him that your desire will be to please Him with works befitting your righteousness in Him by faith. You know His extravagant love by the Spirit of God working it out in you.  You know that you have been born again by faith.  You have received the gift of His love sacrifice for you.  You will always be changed.  You will follow this Shepherd and listen to His voice for the rest of your days, this one who laid down His life for you.  
When you are born again, you become a member of a spiritual household of faith.  You are built up together in Him into one body.  This is what is referred to as the Church of God or the Body of Christ.  This spiritual body is also a Bride.  The Bridegroom is coming for His Bride.  It is a 2000 year old love story with the Church.  The love story actually started 6000 years ago with the creation of Adam and Eve, woman, bone of his bone, flesh of his flesh.  God then chose Abraham, Israel, to work out His salvation plan through a chosen people and ultimately bring His Bride to Himself through this one nation, made up of all nations of the earth.  Jesus, the Bridegroom, is now bringing this Bride to His Side.  Sons and Daughters of Adam, together a Bride, a Woman, Rib of Jesus' own Side, are betrothed to Him.  Jesus is waiting for the Father to send Him out to bring home His Bride.  He is coming for the next fulfillment of His Jewish wedding with the Gentile, adopted sons and daughters of Israel. He is coming to gather His bride under the wedding canopy to share the cup of blessing, proclaim the vows and promises, and then take His bride to His Father's House.  He has not forgotten Israel.  Israel is still the apple of His eye, His treasured possession, His beautiful one.  He is coming back for her before the 7 day wedding celebration has ended.  Israel will be with Him for the marriage supper of the Lamb.  Those who have believed on the Son, Jew or Gentile, are overshadowed by extravagant grace and are invited now to the Father's House, the throne room of God, the high hills of heaven.  What love, glory, and grace!
The Bridegroom is coming!  Those Virgins of the Bridegroom must be ready!  They must be watching with their lamps and oil.  They must have the light and oil of His Spirit, not living in darkness.  They can't be sleeping!  The Bridegroom is not going to catch them up sleeping or come like a thief to rob them out of their houses.  The Virgins must be ready and go out to meet Him!
Matthew 25 “Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.
“And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him! Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 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[b] in which the Son of Man is coming.
Be a ready bride, watching for the Bridegroom in anticipation.  He desires you to run out to meet Him!
