Christians are expecting the second coming of Jesus Christ to happen at any time. But he will come for four times, that is, there will be four second comings according to the bible. We will see the first second coming in this parable. Ten virgins are waiting for Jesus to come. When will Jesus Christ come? The period of his first second coming began from the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and it will continue until the destruction of the world, sun, moon, and all. Five virgins are wise and the other five are foolish. Their lamps are lighted, and the wise virgins had oil also. They all slumbered and slept. So, they are not of the high calling, but they are ordinary born-again believers. When it was announced that Jesus is coming, they trimmed their lamps. The foolish virgins found that their lights went out with no oil. They asked the wise virgins to share oil, but they told them to go and buy it from those who sell. By the time they went, the bride groom came, the wise virgins went in, and the door was shut. When the foolish virgins returned, Jesus did not open the door to them. Let us study about the lamp, light, oil, those who sell oil, about the wise, and about the foolish. It is a parable of Jesus Christ. He tells about what kind of believers he is receiving, and what kind he is rejecting now, in his first second coming.
God Bless You
