“And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.”
King James Version (KJV)
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.
