And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go you out to meet him.
- Matthew 25:6
Thoughts on Today’s Bible Verse:
In this verse, the Lord personally told us how to welcome the Bridegroom, which is crucial for us to welcome the Lord and be raptured into the kingdom of heaven.
The Lord’s words remind that we should be watchful at all times as wise virgins. When we hear someone spreads and testifies to the second coming of Jesus Christ, we should seek and investigate immediately and carefully listen to the utterances of the Lord, and see whether or not they are the truth, and whether or not they are God’s voice. In this way, we can successfully welcome the second coming of Jesus Christ. This is the reason why the wise virgins can welcome the Lord. However, many people know they should watch and wait for the second coming of Jesus Christ, but they don’t follow the Lord’s words to meet the Bridegroom. When they hear there are testimonies of the Lord’s coming, they neither listen nor get in touch with it and even think that all testimonies of the Lord Jesus’ return are false. With this kind of attitude toward the Lord’s coming, can they welcome the Lord and be raptured into the kingdom of heaven? Aren’t they precisely the foolish virgins the Lord Jesus spoke of? As we all know, it is now the last days, and the most crucial moment to welcome the second coming of Jesus Christ. Can we follow the Lord’s words to seek and investigate as wise virgins once we hear the testimonies of the Lord’s coming? This is a major thing that affects whether or not we can be raptured into the kingdom of heaven. We must take it seriously.
