The message in the parable of the 10 Virgins that Jesus told in Matthew 25:1-13 can be boiled down to two words:

  • Watch
  • Be ready

They didn't know when the bridegroom would come for them, but the five wise virgins had made themselves ready for him.

I have a question for you.

Are you ready for Jesus when He comes for you? What are you doing to prepare for His second coming?

How can we be sure we'll be ready when Jesus Comes again? In this podcast I share how. #foundational #secondcoming #Jesus #rapture

John 14-15

"'Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.' Thomas said to Him, 'Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?' Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.'"

  • Jesus was describing a wedding ceremony
    • While we may not fully grasp the picture Jesus was painting, every Jew fully understood.
    • The more romantic the Bridegroom, the closer they will wait until the midnight hour to get the bride
    • Sometime beforehand, the father of the bride and the father of the groom sealed the covenant by drinking a cup of wine together
      • The night that Jesus gave that parable, he had drank the cup and sealed the covenant
      • He had chosen Himself a bride - every person who would receive Him as Savior

3 Ways You Can Prepare for Jesus' Second Coming

2 Peter 3

  • We are very close to the time when God will tell His Son, "Go get your bride".
  • In the meantime, while He has tarried, there are those in the church who have taken their eye off the prize
    • They have begun to live like the world
    • The church is embrace things of the world that is polluting the house of God
  • They don't realize that in the meantime, we are drawing very near to His coming.
    • They are like the five foolish virgins
    • They are not behaving wisely

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

"For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord."
