Time is filled with swift transition, and we really don't have much time left here on earth to make our wrongs right and our crocked paths straight, for time waits for no one.

The last days

The Time of the Lord's Return is Unknown to all of us, we do not know the day nor the hour. because It Will Be Sudden. Hence, let us Not Be Asleep. Let us watch and Have Our Armour on. Doing our mortal mutual Duties.
As we enter the last of the last days, the Church is experiencing an unprecedented visitation from the Lord as He begins to prepare His Bride for the soon-to-come Marriage Supper of the Lamb. This visitation has been called everything from "Revival, Outpouring, latter rain, the renewal. But it has also been called the sudden destruction.
So what time are we living in relation to the rapidity of the coming of the coming of the Lord? Who gets to go to heaven, who makes that decision? And what are the criteria?
The time we are living in is called midnight, and what are the characteristics of this midnight? The bible describe society groping around in the dark, having a form of godliness, but has not the ability to see clearly.

But realize this that in the last days difficult times will come People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy. 2 timothy 3:2
They are not holy
There will still be more account of corruptions within Men and women who love to gratify their own lusts, when everyone is eager for what they can get, it is a rare thing to find someone who is sold out for God. When men do not fear God they will not regard man,
A form of Godliness is very different from having power and authority, There has always been crafty personnel’s, artful men, who, by pretences and flatteries, creep into the favour and confidence of those who are too easy of belief without discernment, they hear fanciful things, and are persuade by a the slightest notion, they are for ever learning, but unable to come to the truth.
This is the classification of the last days
But not every church goer will experience the blessing that God has in store, many are more Concern with the present lifestyle of this world, seeking prosperity, and therefore; they are asleep, their actions and behaviour clearly portrays their intentions, And are numb to the sensitivity and operation of the Holy Spirit.
There was ten virgins Read -Matthew 25:1-13
Ten virgins all feel asleep, 5 were wise, and the other 5 foolish virgins, all lived sinful, carefree lifestyles, halfway through the night a cry was made, behold the bridegroom comes.
The parable of the ten virgins seems to be a drama of romance, but it is also a warning of great prophetic significance, in this story we find ourselves drawn beyond our comfort zone into a period where sudden destruction and disappointment may come.
The facts of the story are straightforward. Five of the virgins were wise and five were foolish. Just who are these 5 wise and 5 foolish virgins? As we look deeper into the story and survey the imagery, we observe that all of the ten virgins carried lamps.

PROVERBS 20:27
the spirit of a man is the lamp of the Lord,
Searching all the inner depths of his heart."
"The spirit of a man is the candle of the Lord,
Searching all the inward parts of the belly."
The inward parts relates to our deepest feelings, our thoughts, motivation and attitude, the lamp is a flame that is present and visible to others, so an individual’s behaviour speaks clearly about what is taking place on the inside of them.
If they are alive and wake, they will portray a fruitful presence, express by the attributes and fruit of their spirit.
"Jesus bids us shine with a pure clear light,
like a little candle, burning in the night.
In this world of darkness, so we must shine.
You in your small corner, and I in mine.
Or like the 5 foolish virgins,
They may have accepted "strange fire" from the enemy of our souls.
There is a 'mystery of iniquity' operating in the midst of great deception.
When you think that people are for you they are often totally against you, but you only know this by the type of flame that is coming from them,
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 2 Thessalonian 2:7

And there is a 'mystery of godliness'.
In scripture the meaning of the oil is not a difficult matter to elucidate. A quick word study through the Bible will suffice. The oil typically represents the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
Poetically the Word and Light of God is there as "a lamp unto our feet" to help guide us along the pathway when the hours of darkness come.
As we see in the parable, an extra cruse of oil was carried by each of the five wise virgins. Apparently this extra oil supply was the essential difference between the five wise and five foolish virgins,
As the party began in the early hours of the evening the difference between the wise and the foolish virgins was not noticeable.
All of them slumbered. All of them were approaching burnout as the night wore on. But as the midnight hour came the presence or absence of that extra oil became a critical issue.
There was a power cut in Jamaica for 4 hours, how did I see into the dark, I did not panic, or try to go and borrow light from others, I had my own.
The wise virgins carried an extra supply beyond and outside of the oil they had in their lamps. They travelled with this extra supply of oil with them on their person.
