The Door is Closing Get EXTRA OIL
I have an urgent and serious message for those who are SERIOUS about their salvation, people who have repented, who have been baptized in water, like Jesus commanded and who have received the baptism in the Holy Spirit. I am speaking to those people.
I read the words of Jesus as recorded in Matthew 25:
1“Then the kingdom of heaven will be comparable to ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2“Five of them were foolish, and five were prudent. 3“For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, 4but the prudent took oil in flasks along with their lamps. 5“Now while the bridegroom was delaying, they all got drowsy and began to sleep. 6“But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ 7“Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. 8“The foolish said to the prudent, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 9“But the prudent answered, ‘No, there will not be enough for us and you too; go instead to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.’ 10“And while they were going away to make the purchase, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut. 11“Later the other virgins also came, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open up for us.’ 12“But he answered, ‘Truly I say to you, I do not know you.’ 13“Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour."
Jesus Christ has given His Spirit to those who OBEY Him. Many have received the baptism in the Holy Spirit but very few of those follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Those who are being lead by the Spirit of God they are the children of God. Many people who have received the baptism in the Holy Spirit and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit of Christ in them do not listen to nor do they follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit, they do not know the Master's voice. They believe they are saved because they have received the Holy Spirit but they do not have a living relationship with God, with Jesus Christ. They do not have OIL IN THEIR LAMPS. They have Bible knowledge, they know the scriptures and they know the truth but they have no relationship with Jesus Christ, they have no OIL in their lamps. Many of them live holy lives. Many of them are waiting for the coming of the Lord Jesus but they have no OIL in their lamps, they do not know His VOICE.
His sheep LISTEN to His VOICE and they FOLLOW Him because they have OIL in their lamps, they follow the Master. Those who do not have the EXTRA OIL in their lamps will not be ready when the Master comes, when the Bridegroom comes. They will not know His voice. They will be running around looking for Jesus, looking for guidance, in their Bibles, from other people but they will not know the Master's voice, the door will close on them because they never knew His voice, they never followed Him. They did not have oil, extra oil in their lamps, they were not lead by the Holy Spirit. It is not enough to be religious, to read your Bible, you need to be guided by the Holy Spirit, you need to have the EXTRA OIL in your lamp or else it will happen to you what Jesus said happened to the five foolish virgins. We read in verse 12:“But He answered, ‘Truly I say to you, I do not know you." They were also expecting the Master, they also had lamps but they did not have the extra oil. They did not know His voice. They were not lead by the Holy Spirit.
Do you have the extra oil? Are you lead by the Holy Spirit? Is your relationship with Jesus Christ REAL? The door is closing. Get extra oil before it is too late.
May Jesus bless you.
