Redeeming the Time - Part 5

FIVE SINNERS            Page 6

V.12 ** What is the terrifying answer back from the Lord?

"Truly I say to you, I do not know you!" Religious effort or trying to look like those who know Christ but never being truly transformed, will only produce a tragic end.

V.13 ** What is the stern warning now given to those who would be alive during the last days of the Tribulation?

"Be on the alert, for you do not know the day nor the hour." As mentioned earlier, Jesus repeats this warning no less than five times during His Olivet discourse with His disciples.
cf. 24:36, 42, 44, 50

** If you were to put that warning into your own words, with this parable as a backdrop, how would you phrase it?

BE PREPARED! Be sure to have your torch ready with the oil of God's gracious saving message hidden in your heart.


** What similarities did these ten bridesmaids or virgins have in common?

They all looked the same on the outside.
They all had lamps.
They all intellectually knew about the bridegroom.


** What made five of them turn out to be foolish?

They thought that they could go to the wedding feast without possessing the "oil" of salvation through Jesus Christ.


** Where do you stand with Jesus? If you wish to “Redeem the Time” you have here on earth, have you given your life to Jesus Christ? Have you asked Him to forgive your sin and to become the Lord and Savior of your life?
