Of the ten virgins some trimmed their wicks and made sure they worked to have a supply of oil. Oil provides light but oil was also for anointing and means the same as the word "Christ" and "Messiah".
The foolish virgins may have kept themselves separate, pure, virgins from the World as Christ commanded but they squandered their oil using it up so there was not enough when they needed it.
Many people do the same with the oil of their life which God gives them. They take pride in being separate but they do not love one another, serve one another, feed His sheep and of course attend to the Weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith which include caring for the needs of our neighbors and the widows and orphans of our society through Pure Religion in matters of health, education, and welfare. We are NOT to provide for the needy of society through the Covetous Practices and the men who call themselves benefactorsbut who exercise authority one over the other like the socialists do.
The Way of Christ was like neither the way of the world of Rome nor the governments of the gentiles who depend on those fathers of the earth through force, fear and fealty who deliver the people back in bondage again like they were in Egypt. Christ's ministers and true Christians do not depend upon systems of social welfare that force the contributions of the people like the corban of the Pharisees which made the word of God to none effect. Many people have been deceived to go the way of Balaam and the Nicolaitan and out of The Way of Christ and have become workers of iniquity.
The Christian conflict with Rome in the first century Church appointed by Christ was because they would not apply to the fathers of the earth for their free bread but instead relied upon a voluntary network providing a daily ministration to the needy of society through Faith, Hope, and Charity by way of freewill offerings of the people, for the people, and by the people through the perfect law of liberty in Free Assemblies according to the ancient pattern of Tuns or Tens as He commanded.
"Follow me!" —Jesus the Christ.
- One of the most important things to do is to become involved in a network of Charitable Practices. Everyone should want to join a Living Network of Love and Charity.
- If you think you have a calling to be a Minister of God or you might want to dedicate your life to Christ as an Ordained Minister of His Holy Church, contact us to start the process of discipleship and become the benefactors who exercise only love, NOT authority.
The Foolish virgins might have taken back responsibility for themselves but not for their neighbor. They might be like monks and priests hiding in monasteries that think they are holy but they bear no fruit. Or they might be like the separatists who do not seek the the world for its benefits. They might not look to the Benefactors of the World but they fail to become the Benefactors of Christ's appointed Kingdom of God who are servants based on love. They professed Christ with their lips but were not like His Church and are not "with us".
His Holy Church is a phrase describing what Christ appointed.
- Church is from the word called out assembly.
- Holy means separate,
- His is a reference to Christ who is a foreign prince who appointed a government to His ministers.
They were to run it without exercising authority but by keeping themselves separate from the World.
When he told them to be separate from the World, he used the word meaning constitutional order and system of government.
To be a minister of that government of God you cannot be a member of a benefit system run by men who exercise authority one over the other. Due to changes in their laws, ministers who have no numbered membership often are not allowed to get licenses or IDs from those governments. They also cannot take oaths that renounce all princes because that would mean they must renounce Christ and they cannot do that and remain His faithful Ministers.
The Church is separate from the state and even separate from the people in its purposes as the ministers of Christ. Because of the abuses of some men who claimed to be the ministers of Christ, the separate role of His ministers is often rejected by Modern Christians.
Matthew 25:1 "Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
