<-- Back to Matthew chapter 25

 


A disciple's comment on 1/25/2018, 12:39pm...

"And five of them were wise, and five were foolish." Not necessarily half and half, but to show that its entirely up to YOU to either be wise or be stupid! You have come to Jesus in repentance, and believe in Him: AMEN! Now you have a Bible, and try to learn how to understand it and to become a good Christian. EXCELLENT! Ask the Lord for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and for HIS understanding!

"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." While they were running hither and thither to hear the most popular preachers and teachers and show masters in the church world; the Bridegroom is going to come without them being ready! The Lamp won't work without oil in it and without the Holy Spirit no man is His!

"Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man.. and I was afraid and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo there thou hast that is thine. His Lord answered and said unto him, THOU WICKED AND SLOTHFUL SERVANT...Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.. And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."

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

 


Anne's comment on 8/07/2017, 6:49am...

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's comment on 7/15/2017, 1:07pm...

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:

"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's comment on 7/01/2017, 3:32pm...

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.

 


Bruce's comment on 6/25/2017, 8:20am...

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.

 


A disciple's comment on 6/24/2017, 10:38am...

I'm sure that some are really getting annoyed by now with some of my input; but how can someone just be quiet, when there's so much misinformation and wrong notions about interpreting the Scriptures? We should AVOID getting into a habit of imagination and spiritualism, to substitute for real understanding; which only comes from God's Spirit, over time and maturity through proof of trial and faith.

 


SeaHorse's comment on 6/24/2017, 8:26am...

I agree with Irene that the oil is the Holy Spirit. But who are them that sell? I think it is the Prophets, the scribes of the Word, for in them is knowledge, which begets good works, which begets wisdom, which begets good life choices, which begets contentment from God which is of the Holy Spirit. If in this life, you can aquire to yourself blessings from God, this is the Holy Spirit.oil/lite

Believers will give an account of their stewardship on earth when at the judgement seat of Christ. James Hollandsworth has a very helpful message on this passage entitled, " Parables of Talents and Pounds " in his series Rightly Dividing the Parables.

Well done good and faithful servant thou has been faithful over a few things I will make thee a ruler of many things enter into the Joy of the Lord Amen hallelujah Praise you Jesus and thanks for your blood

 


Wesley Archuleta's comment on 4/30/2017, 9:20am...

God gave you the gift of life, What you do with it is your gift to him,So be sure to give him a gift that is worth receiving.

 


Peter A. Okebukola's comment on 3/26/2017, 10:04pm...

The message that rings throughout this chapter is that we should be ever ready for we know not when the Lord shall come. Readiness means being in a state where we can qualify for the Lord's Kingdom. Readiness means being at the centre of God's Will all the time. We cannot achieve this state by our power or might but by the Grace of God. Salvation is through Grace.

 


Lillie's comment on 2/05/2017, 7:47pm...

I think we must always live our life preparing for the return of Jesus.

 


Irene123's comment on 2/03/2017, 6:13pm...

The 'oil' is the symbolic of the Holy Ghost: being prayed up in the spirit everyday - and that is not referring to Jesus' 'example' prayer in Matt. - "Our Father which art in Heaven ..... "; repeating this everyday as one's 'prayer life' is tatamount to saying the rosary. We are to 'converse' with Him Just as we'd talk to our earthly fathers about our needs and/or just how much we love Him.

 


Wayne's comment on 6/24/2016, 2:57am...

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!

 


Norm's comment on 5/14/2016, 7:04pm...

The Gospel of God cometh only from God, our Father which art in heaven. Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: Father, the hour is come glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. The mercy of man is toward his neighbour but the mercy of the Lord is upon all flesh: he reproveth, and nurtureth, and teacheth and bringeth again, as a shepherd his flock. Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation, And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, And all flesh shall see the salvation of God. All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. For God made not death: neither hath he pleasure in the destruction of the living. For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

John 5:19 (KJV)

19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.

John 5:30 (KJV)
30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of t

REPLY TO: Cosmos Ekyinaba

My sister you cannot do it alone/ is spiritual battle (KJV Eph. 6:11-17). Apostle Paul struggled with flesh (Romans 7:14-25) he said the good I want I do not do. He reassures (1.Cor:10:13) God will not allow more than you can bear. You must choose in the MOMENT of temptation for God to help (Matt. 10:19).


 


Ben's comment on 11/23/2015, 2:53pm...

You left out the word "over" - make thee ruler over many things

 


Paul's comment on 11/23/2015, 8:28am...

In today's time, I believe many have lost site of this one verse. Many people don't focus or can't focus on the end because they are so occupied with the current and the right now. This simple and yet powerful verse should always stay on the mind of the believers. The part that really gets me is when HE says you have been faithful ovr a "few" things. The question that comes to my mind is, Lord what are those few things that I may continue to abide in doing? Is it merely just doing what it takes to remain in your perfect will? Or is it just living holy and living completly by his words? I just wasnt to hear him say well done.

 


Cosmos Ekyinaba's comment on 11/23/2015, 12:22am...

This very powerful inspiration. I have been trying to move away with sin, but after few days that I know I am gradually moving towards the Almighty, then something sinful comes to my way. I need help to be firm in the Lord. Thanks in advance for any one who wish to help me.
