This is a very common and familiar parable from the Bible. It talks about the story of the 10 virgins who went to meet their bridegroom. 5 were said to be wise and the other 5 foolish.
They are had the same focus and direction, which was to meet the bridefgroom. They took their lamps and head out.
There is a notable story and explanation for every line of this scripture, but I'll try not to make it lengthy and just pick the main lines.
So from the first part, they had the same focus and they took the same equipment and went through the same route
Something happened that we don't know and for that reason the bridegroom delayed and they all slept, probably because they were tires and needed to rest.
Then when it was time after the bridegroom came, a call was made to them all, and they all heard and responded to the call.
The next verse following this line is where the problem began.
After they woke up and trimmed their lamps then the foolish ones had run out of oil and therefore they had no light.
Just like had been said already from the beginning, that oil is the spirit of God and which we cannot do any significant thing without.
So the issue now was that what made the scripture refer to the virgins as foolish was because, they neglected the place of the spirit.
So much can be said about having and maintaining fellowship with the spirit of God which is the ultimate for our survival as children of God in this world.
Whenever we fail to recognize the spirit of God the end of it all is usually not a good story...
**Don't be a good student and a bad teacher.**
Hey I think I get the concept behind the article has it says one should carry his or her oil. I think this is very important if one is to embark on the spiritual journey and for one to be successful at the end.
I will closely relate this to a man or woman that goes on his or her journey in the dark without the light or one that travels in a tunnel without the light, we will find out that it will be very difficult for such a person to get through to the end of the tunnel as there may be lots of impossibilities because one would rather not know where to turn to.
whether to turn to the right or to turn to the left or whether to change position and her that's going to be a very difficult journey so I think this also has to do with the spiritual aspect of our journey.
Without the oil in the lamp one cannot go and so someone needs the word of God and the holy spirit of God will guide one through who direct the parts of a man to know what to do where to go and all that and the spirit will be the one to strengthen the times of weakness in the journey.
So it is advisable that one should go in the journey with the oil in the lamp as one does this one will be able to make a successful journey and when will be able to see any kind of thing or obstacle that may be in the dark so the oil in the lamp is very very very crucial and very very very important in the journey of life.
I pray that we don't run out of oil and our lamp in Jesus name amen.
