Verses:

Matt. 25:1 “At that time the kingdom of the heavens will be likened to ten virgins, who took their lamps and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”

 

Excerpts:

Matthew 25:1-13 concerns our destiny for at least one thousand years. If we do not pay the price required to buy the extra portion of oil in this age, the price we will have to pay in the next age will be great, high, and costly. Virgins signify believers in the aspect of life. We are chaste virgins bearing the Lord’s testimony in the dark age and going out of the world to meet the Lord. We must be prepared. In this solemn book of Matthew He would not let us know when He would come, [meaning] that we have to be watchful and always keep ourselves exercised.

 

We all are going out of the world to meet our Bridegroom, bearing a lamp as a shining testimony. We should be in a situation of going out to meet Him and bearing His testimony. For this purpose we need to buy the oil. To accumulate a deposit of the extra portion of the Holy Spirit in [our] being is not an overnight job. To pick up things that become a constitution of [our] proper being is not a matter of one day or even one year. It is a matter of daily business for a lifetime.

 

To be watchful does not mean only to watch for His coming. To be watchful is to prepare yourself every day by buying the oil. Our spiritual transformation is a daily and lifelong matter. Every day there should be some accumulation, some deposit of oil added to our being. We have not been that much in the proper exercise every day to exercise ourselves even every minute to buy the oil. (The Way to Practice the Lord’s Present Move, ch. 9)
