People's Bible Notes for Matthew 25:11


Mt 25:11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. As Augustine says: ``They came looking for mercy when it was time for judgment.'' Lu 13:25 also teaches that the doors finally will be shut. The shutting of the doors teaches that the day of salvation may pass by.

Discussion for Matthew 25

  • A Christian
    Perhaps the wise virgins knew their spiritual condition needed work that could only be performed under the anaesthetic of darkness?

    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.

    Ephesians 5:[8] For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
  • A disciple
    "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.
