Matthew 25:1-13
Ten virgins refer to the Church of God that must be ready to welcome Jesus' second coming.

Matthew 25:5-7
25:5 "But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.
25:6 "And at midnight a cry was heard: 'Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!'
25:7 "Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps.

Actually, the condition of Church in the last days is sleeping spiritually so she will be left at the time of Jesus' second coming. It means perdition.
God does not want it happens, the Church must receive Bride Tidings [Matthew 25:6] = the true teaching Word or the Word sharper than any two-edged sword.

Sinful men may believe in Jesus and be saved through Gospel. Being saved, they often sleep spiritually on their way to welcome Jesus' second coming. The condition is as Israelites who went out of Egypt but only two people of them entered Canaan.

Therefore, we HAVE TO receive Bride Tidings/teaching Word sharper than any two-edged sword after receiving the Gospel. Bride Tidings is able to make the sleeping Church awake so she can be ready in welcoming Jesus' second coming on the clouds of glory.

Mark 14:37-38
14”37 Then He came and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, "Simon, are you sleeping? Could you not watch one hour?
14:38 "Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed iswilling, but the flesh isweak."

The condition of the sleeping Church is as the condition of the disciples who slept while they were worshiping God, whose practices are below:
  1. Being unfaithful, impatient in worship.
  2. The worship is dry even being unable to pray because of keeping sins/bitterness/hatred/revenge.
The consequences are below:
  1. Temptations and problems come in all aspects of life.
  2. Fleeing from Jesus.
    Mark 14:50
    14:50 Then they all forsook Him and fled.

    The meaning of fleeing from Jesus are below:
    1. Taking his/her own solution which is not in line with the Word = dead-lock = perdition
    2. Being unfaithful in committing service and ministry to the Lord even leaving them.

    Being far from the Lord = being near to death.

  3. Being naked, sinning until being perished.
    Mark 14:51-52

    14:51 Now a certain young man followed Him, having a linen cloth thrown around hisnaked body. And the young men laid hold of him,
    14:
    52 and he left the linen cloth and fled from them naked.
Only hard saying of God may help the sleeping Church. Jesus made the disciples awake with His hard saying, referring to Bride Tidings which is able to make the Church awake and become true worshipersin individual life, marriage, and shepherding up to the true fellowship and the worship of Christ's body on the glorious clouds when Jesus comes a second time.

John 4:23-24
4:23 "But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.
4:24 "God isSpirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."

True worship is encouraged by the true teaching Word anointed by Holy Spirit.

The practice of true worship are below:
  1. WORSHIPING GOD FOR ONE HOUR
    Mark 14:37
    14:37 Then He came and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, "Simon, are you sleeping? Could you not watch one hour?

    Worshiping God for one hour makes us not fall into problems, especially the sins of Babel, i.e. sins concerning eating-drinking and sexuality, so that we will not be perished together with Babel.

    Revelation 18:16
    18:16 "and saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! 'For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.'

  2. CRYING "Abba, Father" = BEING OBEDIENT until flesh does not sound anymore, being obedient whatever risks may come.
    Mark 14:36
    14:36 And He said, "Abba, Father, all things arepossible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will."

    Crying "Abba, Father", one is anointed by Holy Spirit.

    Romans 8:15
    8:15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father."

    Youth must obey physical parents (include the teacher or lecturer), spiritual parents (pastor with shepherding Word), and heavenly parents (the Lord).

    The results of being obedient are below:
    1. [Romans 8:15] Being freed from the bondage of sin = living in righteousness; being freed from anxiety, heavy burden, weariness = living in peace.
      Living in righteousness and peace, Holy Spirit will be able to make all things easy and light.

    2. We become the sons of God as well as the heir = the sons in spiritual maturity.
      Galatians 4:6-7,1-2
      4:6 And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, "Abba, Father!"
      4:7 Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
      4:1 Now I say
      thatthe heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all,
      4:2 but is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father.

      Hebrews 5:14
      5:14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

      The signs of being adult spiritually are below:
      1. Being able to eat solid food or the hard teaching Word.
      2. Being able to discern the false teaching and the true one.
      3. Being able to discern the good deeds and the false ones so we always do the good ones, even we can repay good for evil.

      As a result, Holy Spirit makes all things in our lives beautiful.

    3. Receiving power to enable all impossible things = miracles.
      Mark 14:36
      14:36 And He said, "Abba, Father, all things arepossible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will."

      Physical miracle happens when nothing becomes something, from impossible thing to possible ones. Spiritual miracles take form in the renewal of life, little by little until we become as glorious as Jesus is when He comes a second time.
God blesses you.
