Matthew 25:1 – 13
Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.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.Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Most people ask what is the Lamp and what is the Oil let’s get our answers from scripture both is needed to be taken when the bridegroom comes.
Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path
For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life
The entrance of your words gives light; it gives understanding unto the simple.I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy commandments.
Now we know by that scripture that the Word of God is the Lamp but now we need to know, What is the Oil. This oil is so vital, it will light the way during the heavenly procession as the bridegroom comes for his bride. Let’s look at the scripture to find out what the oil is , We cannot have the oil unless we have the lamp to put it in. Let’s look at these biblical clues.
I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.
For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
1 John 2:26
These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.
Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
1 Corinthians 2:14
But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
1 Corinthians 1:18
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God
1 Chronicles 16:22
Saying, Touch not my anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.
I removed his shoulder from the burden: his hands were delivered from the pots
1 John 2:19
They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him
Now we know according to scripture that the oil is the Holy Spirit of God. The anointing takes away sickness and gives us understanding of the Lamp we have which is The Word of God. Yes it is possible to have the lamp and not the oil like the foolish virgins. It is a very serious thing when one is blaspheming the gifts of the Spirit. People must be careful what they speak against , When they speak against another’s anointing or gifts. We must tend to ourselves and be blessings to others not curses. To curse another is not of God but of the evil one. God’s anointing brings blessings not curses and harm to others.
Do you have sufficient oil? This oil will get you into the marriage supper of the Lamb without it . You must run and get some before the bridegroom comes. When the bridegroom comes it will be too late to seek out the oil. Those carrying heavy yokes need them broken. Let the elders of the church lay hands on those who need it . This is biblical.
Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord
Mark 6:12 – 13
And they went out, and preached that men should repent.And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.
So you gotta go to a bible believing church if you are sick to receive the laying of hands on you from the elders, We all need the oil, sometimes God will anoint you his self. but it is biblical for the sick to go to church or call the elders of the church to lay hands on them to receive healing. I hope this post blesses you. Blessings to all who read and I hope to meet you in the air at the trumpet blasts of God.
