People's Bible Notes for Matthew 25:29


Mt 25:29 To every one that hath shall be given. Every attainment of honor, wealth, knowledge, or spiritual grace helps to render further attainment more easy and more assured; while it is spiritually as well as materially true that "the destruction of the poor is their poverty" (Pr 10:15). Shall be taken away even that which he hath. For every "hath" there is a richer "hath"; and in every "hath not" a deeper, poorer "hath not".

    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. Those with child took the first husband and to give suck means they worked his one world system and they will say we are a widow no longer.

    Cosmos, we cannot be firm in the Lord with our might. He is strong we are weak. Talk to the Lord stating your problem. Tell Him you have to help me because I cannot do it. Tell Him, you have to do it. You have to make it work in me. He loves to cleanse in our inner man. He works in our spirits for our purification. Trust Him. He will do it! God Bless!

    The 10 virgins ( I don't get the significance of the no.?) I went to M. Henry on this, but he was no help. To me the 'oil' is our praying EVERYDAY for the infilling of the Holy Ghost; to keep prayed up. The Spirit is the oil in our daily walk. I may be way off about this .................?

    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).
