MORNINGTIME 2113
 
And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so ; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; AND THEY THAT WERE READY went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Matthew 25:6-10. Again, this is about the 10 virgins being ready, the wise ones, or not ready, the foolish ones. Ready for what? Ready for another Thing the Lord asked them to do? Ready for something, like you usually are asked to do and sometimes you do and sometimes you don't? It's OK, all I need to do is ask forgiveness, act repentant, and the Lord will forgive me, as usual? Or is this something more important, something I should pay special attention too? Everything's special with the Lord, what's the big deal with this one? "Yes Dear, I'll be just a minute, I want to finish watching this TV show, and then I'll be ready to take you to church. Go ahead and get the kids in the car, I'll be right along". Late for church? No big deal, I'll get the tape. Study to shew thyself approved? Ya, work'en on it. Special all night Prayer Meeting at church tonight? Go ahead, I'll pray in bed. Special guest speaker in church tomorrow? I'll skip it, he won't be as good as my Pastor. You say something about some bridegroom coming? Late at night? Ya, Ok, lamp oil is expensive, I'll just borrow some if I need extra, Christians are good that way. IF YOU DON'T KNOW CHRIST, THIS "CALL" IS JUST ANOTHER EVENT ON YOUR CALENDAR. If you do Know Christ, this "Call" is the one the Prophets could only dream about, the one that all of Biblical History has pointed to for 6,000 years, AND YOU'RE INVITED. Don't be late, Be ready, this is the Big One, miss this, and you've missed it ALL. Be Blessed?
