The word of the Lord would say to you, "Those who have ears to hear, listen.
"I know the plans I have for you. They are not filled with destruction but are ordained to bless and prosper you.
"Yes, we are living in the end, but I have not left you high and dry on the wayside.
"No, I have set you on the path of righteousness, and the righteous hear of the end and they are glad.
"They are not filled with fear because they are fully aware of My faithfulness to them.
"Now, they are not naive like the foolish virgins, but are ready and prepared like the wise ones.
"What did the wise possess? They had lamps filled with oil to shine their light. And their light shined for all to see, and their light was not hidden from the foolish. All could see that they carried the light.
"They possessed the oil necessary to light their lamps. They even were prepared to shine when other lamps would grow dim for they possessed extra oil. They were wise and therefore tapped into the abundance of the oil before the return of their groom.
"This portion of the bride was already dressed and ready to meet their groom whenever He would call them up hither. The crier asks you, 'Are you ready to meet your groom?'
"Are your garments spotless? Have you rid yourself of all sin issues? Or do you have some more clean up to do?
"Are your garments free from wrinkles? Have you pressed them out? Or do you need to put the pressure on the old man's ways and demand them out of your life for good?
The wise ready themselves to meet the groom; the foolish do not. Are you ready?"
