    Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. Luke Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;. 2 Peter Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. Now, if you notice, there were five foolish and five wise virgins; all of them was virgins, made out of the same material. But by election, God chose His Bride by election before the foundation of the world, put their names on the Lamb's Book of Life slain before the foundation of the world; before the world ever began, God in His mind, being.

      Matthew The wise virgins had plenty of oil “But the prudent took oil in flasks along with their lamps.” The prudent, or wise virgins, took the time to prepare for a long wait. As mentioned above, they brought additional oil with them. Their primary focus in this additional preparation was to be ready for the return. Answer: The parable of the ten virgins is found in chapter 25 of the book of Matthew. The other three gospels, surprisingly, do not record it. The parable, as told by Jesus, revolves around ten virgins. In the middle of the night they are notified that they must rise up and go to the approaching bridegroom.

      Though the fate of the five foolish virgins is tragic, the Savior used them to warn each of us not grow complacent in our wait for His coming. But instead, we should be like the Wise Five who had faithfully filled their vessels in preparation for the long wait. In this parable, we can see the love the Savior has for each of us. If the virgins as a whole represent all those who become interested in the great Advent movement, and are called out by it, the wise are those who follow the true light in regard to it, and the foolish those who walk in darkness, and adopt unscriptural positions relative to that event.
