People's Bible Notes for Matthew 25:10


Mt 25:10 And while they were going to buy, the bridegroom came. They were now seeking to obtain the oil in the only legitimate way, and all would have been well if they had attended to it at the proper time, but it was now too late. There is no encouragement to death-bed repentance. The door was shut. The door of the marriage feast chamber. The door of the kingdom stands open now, in life, to every mortal, but it will not always be so. The day of opportunity for everything passes.

    We should share our gifts and talents with others 1 Peter 4:10 tells us "As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another; as good stewards of the manifold grace of God".
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    We are taking about taking oil, that oil is the words of the King Jame bible in order to keep our light shining in Christ Jesus the Son of God. I see many foolish Christians of the hour looking for water and no oil to extinguish the lamp of the words of the Gospel of Christ.

    "And five of them were wise, and five foolish." The *wise (having the power of discerning and judging properly as to what is true or right, and conducting oneself thereby) are those Blessed, which when the Lord comes shall find so doing; and the *foolish (moron; a person who is notably stupid or lacking in good judgment) who neglected the truth and had no *enthusiasm (possession by God within).

    Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this , To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. James 1:27
  • Insight777
    What men say is Holy on earth is open to their religious interpretation. Some religions say something is Holy when others say it is not. Fact or fiction, that "holiness" does exist, lie or truth, all deal with people that do not agree. Physical response to what is spiritual belief is what Jesus taught against. Jesus wants people to believe truth but to not kill people that do not understand truth.

    disciple: The Holy Spirit will Teach us all things.1John 2:27. As We study His Word. When one is seating on Their Throne and blinded by pride,their Judgment gets Blurry, look at Hamam: Esther 7:10. With Christ on The Throne We can all Grow together.
