THE FOOLISH UNPREPARED

  PARABLE OF THE WISE AND FOOLISH BRIDES MAIDS                                                                                       end times                                                                                Matthew 25.1-13 (AO32)

Why did the five “wise” bridesmaids not share their extra oil with the “unwise” or “foolish” ones whose lamps began to flicker around midnight? It would have been the charitable thing to do.

The story makes it clear that some of the bridesmaids were ill-prepared to participate in the wedding rituals.

The bridegroom was a bit late. The foolish bridesmaids did not have enough oil to keep their lamps burning, so they missed out. Lesson learned.

If I were to improve the story, I would have created another “teaching moment”. I would have had the good ones actually give away some of their oil to the foolish ones to teach about the virtue of “sharing”. It would have achieved two lessons with one story — one about preparedness and the other about generosity.

THE END TIMESend times

The parable is a metaphor for the end-times, that time we find out our final destination.

We are the bridesmaids in the story. We are those who want to take part in the wedding feast that is heaven. Continue reading THE FOOLISH UNPREPARED

PROPHETIC SCRIPTURES TO BE FULFILLED

PROPHETIC FULFILLMENT

PROPHETIC FULFILLMENT

A Biblical Prophetic Fulfillment: “It will all come about when history has been completed. God will then bring together all things in heaven and on earth under one ruler. The ruler is Christ.”                                                                                                                                         Ephesians 1:10

The Timing and Seasons of God

“Follow the way of love and eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit, especially prophecy.”                                                                    Corinthians 14:1

The Prophet, Isaiah, prophesied in his day 700 years before Christ: “For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. ”                                                                                                                                    Isaiah 9:6

“Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.”                                  Matthew 24:34

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.”                                                                                       Isaiah 55: 8, 9

But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.”                                                                                                                                               2 Peter 3:8

So what is God saying to us through his Word?

WHY THE KING OF MERCY?

KING OF MERCYKING OF MERCY

Spiritual Insight

There are, in my life, times and moments of spiritual insight; that is, divine illuminations, when the soul receives inward instruction about things it has not read in any book and has not been taught by any person. These are times of great inner knowledge which God himself imparts to the soul. These are great mysteries. Diary 1102

Holiness, Justice, Goodness

In the beginning, God lets himself be known as Holiness, Justice, Goodness that is to say, Mercy. The soul does not come to know this all at once, but piecemeal, in flashes; that is to say, when God draws near. And this does not last for long, because the soul could not bear such light. This light which has touched the soul is alive within it, and nothing can either quench or diminish it. This flash of the knowledge of God draws the soul and enkindles its love for Him.                                                                                                                                     Diary 95 

“Souls that make an appeal to My mercy delight Me. To such souls I grant even more graces than they ask. I cannot punish even the greatest sinner if he makes an appeal to My compassion, but on the contrary, I justify him in My unfathomable and inscrutable mercy”.                                                                                                         Diary 1146

The great theme of the messages which Faustina relates in her diary is one of the Mercy of God. In 1931, Sister Faustina said that Jesus appeared with His right hand raised in blessing, and with two rays, one red and one white, emanating from His heart. Jesus asked her to have this image painted and to have the words, “Jesus, I trust in You,” placed under the image. HE IS THE KING OF MERCY!

WHY THE KING OF MERCY?

“The rays,” Jesus explained, “represent the Blood and Water that gushed forth from the depths of My mercy when My agonizing heart was pieced on the cross. The pale rays symbolize the water, which cleanses and purifies the soul. These rays will shield the soul before the justice of My Father. Fortunate are those who live in this shelter, for the justice of God will not reach them there.”

Not having any resources, Sister Faustina had to trust that God would see to the image’s being painted and disseminated.

THE THIRD HOUR

I remind you, My daughter, that as often as you hear the clock strike the third hour, immerse yourself completely in My mercy, adoring and glorifying it; invoke its omnipotence for the whole world, and particularly for poor sinners; for at that moment mercy was opened wide for every soul“.                                                  Diary 1572
