Shalom my dear sisters!!📯🕯
👉🏾We left off when we learned the foolish virgins were out of oil and demanded the wise virgins to give them so pf their oil..NOW let's pause. Remember when we spoke about be prepared for the purpose? This is exactly what the wise virgins did. They understood that the bridegroom would come for them ALSO they would be traveling..so they were obeident to instructions and was prepared just like the Ants: [Proverbs 6:6-8 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest] .. Scripture says: Ecclesiasticus [Sirach] 26:14 A silent and loving woman is a gift of the Lord; and there is nothing so much worth as a mind well instructed.
This parable is so amazing! I learn some new each time I read it.. Check this out: The wise women didn't taunt the foolish ones because they had no extra oil.. they were concise and to the point.. Just like our Messiah! #SomebodyGonnaGetItOnThe2ndRead
Ok SCRIPTTTTTTT: ↗️Matthew 25:10-13 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.
👉🏾We could really end it here. THE DOOR WAS SHUT after the wise came through... but when the foolish went to enter unprepared look what he told them: He was like, I don't know you.. sounds familiar 🤔..Matthew 7:21-23🤷🏾♀️.. He then proceeds to warn them AGAIN.. Soooo they did not go forth with the bridegroom-
📯 Here is the gist sisters..We have our instructions..with that being said, we must STAY READY, so you dont have to get ready when the Trumpet is sounded!! Because the bible already has told us what to do:
✅KEEP THE LAWS
✅WALK IN RIGHTEOUSNESS
✅APPLICATION OF WHAT YOU LEARNED
✅DENY THE FLESH-WALK IN THE SPIRIT
🤔Let's go even further: 👇🏾
🙌🏾 This can also be applied to when courting, learn all you can about your role as not only a wife..but his wife. All men are not created equal and some men have requirements, or idk they may want dinner on the table by 5p every day. It is important to know these things so when it is time for a decision to be made..you're not looking like 👀...but like this: 🧕🏾..a woman who is ready to accept her responsibilities and walk RIGHTEOUSLY into her role..
🤷🏾♀️..We are either gonna be a woman of good understanding.. or a woman who lacks discretion and discipline. Keep some oil my sisters...
