Are You Ready (Matthew 25:1-13)Jeff Welshan, September 24, 2017
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
No man knows the hour or the day when Christ will come back. If you knew the day, what kind of person would you be? The influences that your fellow church members hold is a great deal to God and to others. All one has to do is to be ready. Just be ready to meet God with salvation. We as Christians are to be looking for His second coming. The unprepared are simply called foolish, for show. How many times do you enter into Gods presence unprepared? One must be called in order to be saved. The wise makes preparation doing all that's required. Acts 1:7 it doesn't matter if we knew the time or not in Christ's coming. Does the Holy Spirit truly dwell in you? The Word must be preached and it MUST cut or hurt when preached because it's to help and to reproof. It's sharper than any two edged sword. If it doesn't hurt, then it's not the Word of God that's being preached. 1 Tim 5:19 we should be cleaned and prepared. Is there anyone that you can think of that keeps their lamps trimmed and their vessel of oil? The wise put value into the oil that they had. It was needed, it was a must to have therefore they went prepared. The oil just as salvation can not be purchased, it's a gift and it must be given by only one person only. There will come a time when all preparation will come to an end but until then, get prepared.

1Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9But 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. 10And 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. 11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
