The Wise Virgins’ Wisdom

Assuming the doors of churches are closed completely, and church fellowships become forbidden, how long will our faith be able to carry us?

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Luke 21:36

It’s high time we make our faith ours and daily validate our relationship with Christ.

Drawing from the ocean of knowledge in the Bible and the wisdom of the wise virgins, we must be equipped with extra oil for our lamps, in case things tarry beyond our expectations.

Matthew 25:2-13
[2]And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
[3]They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
[4]But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
[5]While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
[6]And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
[7]Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
[8]And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
[9]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.
[10]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.
[11]Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
[12]But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
[13]Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Get equipped before the door is shut

I used to be a country girl raised humbly by my God-conscious grandmother. My grandmother made me read the Bible to her every day until I fell in love with the God of the Bible. After high school, I gave my life completely to Christ at Reinhard Bonnke Crusade and got adopted by the ministry of Pastor/Dr. W.F Kumuyi. When I gave Christ my life, He took it, redecorated it in His ways, and added meaning to it. I am happily married and blessed with three wonderful children. Dr. Akinloye, O.
