1Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
2And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
3They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
4But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
5While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
6And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
7Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
9But 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.
10And 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.
11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
14For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.
15And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.
16Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.
17And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.
18But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money.
19After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.
20And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
21His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
22He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.
23His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
24Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:
25And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
26His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:
27Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.
28Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.
29For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
30And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
31When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
41Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Why, might you ask, am I posting this? When we ought to be most awake, the church has fallen asleep. When we ought to be most active, we find many backsliden, weak, compromising, and scoffers. An amoral public has bred immoral leadership.
People wonder why the United States is not mentioned in prophecy; I have given my opinion that -simply put- “You can’t have a free country, and a one world government.” We have fallen far and fast, from the most powerful force to emerge from the cataclysm known as WWII, to a groveling, amoral, corrupt, weak cistern. HOLD YOUR VOTES!
It has been said that we’re an “80% Christian” nation … Let that sink in for a moment.
What percentage would you guess were Christian in 1946? (rhetorical question) Would there even be a second’s thought that -other than Judiasm- we all ascribed to the Author and finisher of our faith and his father, who is so sacred to Jews, that his name can’t be written out except as “G-d”? We were far from perfect, yet we were a beacon of light to the rest of the world; why else would France have bestowed on us the symbol known today as the Statue of Liberty? That we have allowed Islam to take root knowing their attitude that “all infidels are to be converted, or killed” is insanity.
This year, the NDAA in particular, and many other acts, in violation of the Constitution; have brought us to the brink of being the police state that the German republic became in 1932. The National Socialist German Workers’ Party, (Nazi stands for “Nationalsozialist“) implemented gun control, thereby being able to usurp control by knowing exactly who owned guns, and how many.
Combine this with the Globalist agenda by the U.N. and you have the prescription for a pivitol change in the course of history. Given that all our efforts to get rid of Obama succeed, the destruction already done to the Constitution and our freedoms may be irreversible. Scripture admonishes us to be watchful.
1 Peter 5:8-11 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
8Be sober and watch: because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, goeth about seeking whom he may devour.
9Whom resist ye, strong in faith: knowing that the same affliction befalls your brethren who are in the world.
10But the God of all grace, who hath called us into his eternal glory in Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a little, will himself perfect you, and confirm you, and establish you.
11To him be glory and empire for ever and ever. Amen.
2 Timothy 4:2-4 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
2Preach the word: be instant in season, out of season: reprove, entreat, rebuke in all patience and doctrine.
3For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears:
4And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables.
Apostacy, one of the last requirements prior to God the Father informing His son “it’s time” is now apparent, not just isolated incidents.
I hope Iran’s high council stays its hand; but I fear that despite international outcry, Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani’s fate might be sealed.
In my humble opinion, we have awaken too late. Those of us who own guns may soon see the day of becoming the first targets of a government made all too powerful by complacency and neglect. The mechanism that accelerates prophecy, the “sorrows” in Matthew, over the top; thus catapulting the mystery man -a religious/political figure- who will become the Antichrist to power.
Ephesians 6:10-13 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
10Finally, brethren, be strengthened in the Lord, and in the might of his power.
11Put you on the armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the deceits of the devil.
12For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places.
13Therefore take unto you the armour of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and to stand in all things perfect.
