Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, AND TOOK NO OIL WITH THEM: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 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. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, I KNOW YOU NOT. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. Matthew 25:1-13. ALL CHRISTIANS ARE WISE ENOUGH TO READ AND STUDY THE WORD, to gain Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding of their Lord and Saviour, Jesus, the Christ. All unwise "christians" like the "feel good" part of hanging around the Wise Christians. The unwise only look good on the surface, but their is no commitment underneath. They tag along hoping for scraps, GOoD Preaching, AND THAT'S ALL, they go no further, they do nothing with what they hear. The Wise feast on The Words of The Master at every opportunity. The unwise will get ready, "tomorrow", always "tomorrow", never TODAY. Are you for Real, or just a tag-a-long? Is Christ your EVERYTHING? Or just a nice guy to talk about? If you're Serious about Christ, He'll be Serious about you. If not, He won't. It's easier to Follow Christ than it is to Fight Christ. Seek Him, and He WILL be found. Seek and Find Christ, and you WILL, Be Blessed.
