The Midnight Cry
Matthew 25:6 (NKJV)
“And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’
Jesus story in Matthew 25 about the ten virgins assigned to accompany the bridegroom to the wedding is an important one. They were to light the way, They didn’t know the hour of his arrival, so they were to remain ready. Half the virgins did so, they had their lamps filled with oil and their wicks trimmed for the procession. The other five were unprepared for his coming.
The Midnight Cry
All ten women looked the same, but when the hour came, only half were ready. The other half were excluded from the wedding supper and locked outside the house. The door was closed, “watch therefore,” says Jesus, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming. (verse 13)
Paul told the church members in Corinth, Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified. 2 Corinthians 13:5 (NKJV)
Make sure the oil of the Holy Spirit is in your heart and that you are prepared for the arrival of our Saviour and Lord.
I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!
