Mt 25:4 But the wise took oil in their vessels. In this their wisdom was displayed. They not only "let their light shine" (Mt 5:16), but at the same time kept the grace renewed that was essential to the continuance of their light.

It is not what I think. It is what the Holy Spirit reveals. There will be a cry (and is now in process), Church wake up. The 10 Virgins are the Church; (the saved) the 5 wise (Jesus is Savior & Lord), the 5 headless (Jesus is savior). The 5 wise have other vessels (souls won by the anointing only) full of oil (The anointing). The 5 foolish used the oil up on self (ran out). The trump sounds; 5 enter into Heaven (Kingdom) and 5 go through the great tribulation and must look for Jesus with Israel, the nation.

I think we must all way have oil so that our ligth can shine and we must be ready when God is coming back. God bless
