    To Bro. Henriques on ten virgins - Thank-you for your reply. Yes, I knew '10' referred to His chosen, only half being saved. It was just the #10 I was curious about.
  • Bro. Luke Henriques
    Dear Irene 123,

    The 10 in the above scripture is not referring to just ten individuals , but Ten is a whole number meaning the whole body of Christ . Sad to say though , not all of the whole body lives and walks in the Spirit of God as we are called to be , For the oil of the spirit of God should be overflowing in us all the while as a flowing Stream .

    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!
