Matthew (Program #66) – Prophecy of the Kingdom (5)

The parable says that when the Lord as the Bridegroom comes, ten virgins will go forth to meet Him. But of these ten, five will be deemed by the Lord to be unwise and not ready. So five will go in to the wedding, and five will be refused. Just what is it to be wise and to be ready? Do these terms simply mean to be saved?

Matthew (Program #65) – Prophecy of the Kingdom (4)

Of all the parables in the final chapters of Matthew, none is more striking and sobering than the parable of the ten virgins in chapter 25. Coupled with the other parables around it, we can clearly see that at His Coming, the Lord will judge and examine His people, the believing and saved ones. This judgment will not be concerning sin or our eternal salvation, of that we have been assured. But in the matters of watchfulness and faithfulness we will be examined. Not at the risk of our salvation, but at the potential risk of the reward of the enjoyment of the kingdom.
