Day by day, the benefactor Jesus will come back soon; to redeem the time, do not let this life be empty. The shrewd virgins were alert and prepared, waiting eagerly to meet the bridegroom. When He comes, are we waiting? Is the entanglement of "self" free from obstacles? How long to be raptured into His presence, to enjoy the wedding feast, to be His bride, beloved!
Lord, help us, the golden years are all redeemed; the heavenly anointing oil is always prepared in the vessel. In every trial, I know that it is what you have given, that it will make you more, and your love will become more abundant. The Lord is coming soon, and every moment is precious now; to be filled with the Spirit, buy twice as much oil. Hardships and trials, boldly meet without fear; although it hurts today, the kingdom will be sweet that day.
Lords, turn to us, soulful pleasures do not linger, but gaze upon your tender, beautiful and glorious face. Keep us, run the race and not grow weary, endure till the end, till you appear. When the Lord comes, can he be raptured before Him? Can I see him and enjoy the wedding feast? You should be vigilant, and you should not be lazy for a moment;
Virgins went out with joy to meet the bridegroom; the spirits were burning, the lamps were gleaming; the vessels were full, and the eyes were fixed on his glory; and he was with him in full satisfaction and joy. Full contentment—for the bride and groom to share forever; full contentment—until eternity! What a rest! Joy, love and splendor, forever couples, happiness overflows supreme!)
(This hymn talks about the expectations of believers to welcome the Lord's return and how to prepare for the Lord's return. The last verse mentions the joy and satisfaction of the Lord's return. When the Lord Jesus came for the first time, before being crucified and died, He said that He would come a second time. In the Bible, it is mentioned that it is like a virgin welcoming a bridegroom. Our lamps are lit and our vessels have oil, but we cannot be like those few foolish virgins who fell asleep before the Lord's return, and could not welcome the Lord's return without preparing oil to share the joy of the wedding feast with the Lord.
It has been two thousand years since the Lord Jesus said that He would come again. We don’t know when He will come back, but there will be some signs when He comes back, which is the end of this age, like the restoration of the kingdom of Israel (the Bible says that the figs are tender when the leaves grow, you will know that summer is near), nation against nation, nation against nation, earthquakes, natural disasters intensifying, pestilences all over the land, and like the days of Noah, people only care about their natural needs ( such as eating, drinking, marrying, etc.) and disregarding the will of God, this is just like the situation in the present day, when the Lord returns... but the Bible also tells us that the exact day of his return, No one knows, only the Father knows. So all we can do is to prepare ourselves, prepare oil (the Holy Spirit, the word of God) in the vessel (in the spirit), and watch and wait for the Lord's return.
He returns to judge the living and the dead, and all the dead will be resurrected and judged before the great white throne. Those who believe in the Lord will receive the assurance of eternal life and return to the resurrection of life; those who do not believe in the Lord will be judged according to Judgment by actions is typified by the rams and sheep in the book of Revelation. The rams refer to those who treat the believers badly during the time of great tribulation, while the sheep are those who treat the believers kindly and those who stiffen their necks and rebel against God. will be cast into the lake of fire to be punished by everlasting fire. We should seek God in order to have eternal life while there is still time called today.)
