The Bible tells of a time when the curtains will be drawn, when Jesus will come. The question is how ready will you be when he comes? A pastor has been jailed because he refused to marry a gay couple in the U.S. It may seem as though this is far away from us but the world is becoming a global village.
We need to ask ourselves if we will be ready to stand firm for God. The prophecies of old are coming to pass-men are becoming lovers of themselves and lovers of money. The story of the ten virgins reminds us that Jesus is coming soon. The bridegroom shut the door because the foolish virgins were not ready. All ten of them were virgins and yet not all of them went in. These virgins are just like us- we are all Christians but some people may not get into heaven. We need to make sure that we will be ready when the King comes.
