It is not a coincidence that the Bible uses “Oil” as a symbol of the Holy Spirit. Without Oil, a machine cannot function; in other words, a car cannot run on empty gas.
How many of us run on empty and expect to be filled up – whenever we have need – from the brother or sister who is connected with the Holy Spirit. This is what happened in the story of the Ten Virgins ( Mat.25:1-13). It is not that all the Ten Virgins were not tired… Scripture says that, “As the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and slept.” Both the wise and foolish Virgins were in the same position, tired, fed up and weary, however the wise virgins did not have their vision of Christ obscured.
What is it that obscures your vision of Christ? What is it that makes one spiritually dead?
When we are not connected to the Spirit of God, but connected to buying, selling, social gatherings; including gatherings on social media, seeking pleasure (in all it forms), it shows ones heart and soul is entangled. We walk in unbelief if we are not expecting the return of our Saviour, no matter how tired we are!
Are you waiting for the Lord to return until you have Faith in God? By then it will be far too late ( v.8 -11). You do not know the day or hour of the Lord’s return, so you must be spiritually tuned in to the Spirit of God.
Heaven is open to all who “truly” believe in Christ, but shut against those who walk in doubt, fear and unbelief. Those who believe the Word of God know for SURE what they have believed.
