What Will You Do?

   What will you do, My child, when judgments fall and you have no understanding of My Word to live by? How will you feed your little ones when you do not know how to live by My Word? How will you eat? How will you lead others to Me when you cannot survive yourself?

   Will the memories of your worldly pleasures and pursuits help you then? Will the bondages in your flesh serve you in that time, when no man can survive without knowledge of Me? What will you do?

    Do not be like the unwise virgins who prepared not and had no oil for the midnight hour. Seek oil now. Redeem the time while you can, for the hour when no man can work quickly approaches and great darkness will surround you. There will be no light without the oil of My Presence. What will you do then, there in the darkness? Only My people will have light in that time. They will be persecuted for that light, but I will light their way and I will feed them manna and I will protect them until I call them home to Me. 

   What will happen to you in that time if you have no oil? Will your worldly pursuits be of any value when even silver and gold have none in that day?

   Do not be as the unwise virgins. Store up oil now, that I may prosper you then, for I take no pleasure in folly.

Ecclesiastes 5:4
  • When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed.
Proverbs 4:5-8
  • Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.
  • Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.
  • Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
  • Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her.
Matthew 25:1-13
  • 1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
  • And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
  • They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
  • But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
  • While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
  • And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
  • Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
  • And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
  • 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.
