    The virgins who had the oil are the ones who had the truth of Gods salvation and waited for Him and the ones that did not were the Christians who had to or chose to buy and sell and worked antichrist system so when Christ had the wedding they were not let in.

    My sister you cannot do it alone/ is spiritual battle (KJV Eph. 6:11-17). Apostle Paul struggled with flesh (Romans 7:14-25) he said the good I want I do not do. He reassures (1.Cor:10:13) God will not allow more than you can bear. You must choose in the MOMENT of temptation for God to help (Matt. 10:19).
