Beloved, have you noticed our new Masthead? The Bible is true and please believe. Our Earth is FLAT , The Flat Earth WITH A DOMED ROOF OVER IT! Radially bounded by a massive, icy wall called Antarctica. Earth Is Immovable!!! Earth Is Not a Ball! They have fed us innumerable 'photos' of Earth from space! Not a single one of them is a photo! They are all computer-generated images! CGIs! Copernican Theory has been fact with zero proof for millennia! The conspiracy to deceive us and take away YaHuWaH from HIS Earth has failed. Big-bang Theory! Darwinian Theory! Copernican Theory! - All Theories!! Non-facts and non-truths, have reigned over us for so long we came to believe that our Earth is a globe! Our Earth is not a globe. Dubious claims of landing on the moon have been proven to be hoaxes and lies. As NASA today is expressing the impossibility of man going to the moon as they have no answer yet of how to overcome the Van Allen Radiation Belt right above our stratosphere! Limitless Deception!

Count Down to Shavuoth: Pentecost, Feast Of Weeks





YaHuWaH bless You and keep You and all of your loved ones. Amein.

We celebrate these two events on the same date and at the same time:
  1. The one event is the giving the Ten Commandments at Sinai
  2. The other is the Upper-Room outpouring of the Early Rain, the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit)
The two great events took place on the same date for they are the very same event. To have the Ruach haQodesh in the Soul is to have the Law printed in the Heart and vice versa. It will happen in 41 days. As we prepare to celebrate, let's make ready for the Latter Rain. It may well happen on this date!
Thus Says


(Last modified: 4 months ago)

  1. Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten Virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
  2. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
  3. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
  4. But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
  5. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
  6. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
  7. Then all those Virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
  8. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
  9. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
  10. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
  11. Afterward came also the other Virgins, saying, My master, my master, open to us.
  12. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
  13. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
MattithYahuw 25:1 - 13 RNKJV


The Ten Virgins
The Ten Virgins


The Word 'parable' is defined in this manner:

PAR'ABLE, (noun) :
to throw forward or against, to compare to or against; ... A fable or allegorical relation or representation of something real in life or nature, from which a moral is drawn for instruction; such as the parable of the trees choosing a king, Judges 9; the parable of the poor man and his lamb. 2 Samuel 12; the parable of the ten Virgins, MattithYahuw 25.

PAR'ABLE, (v.t).:
to represent by fiction or fable.

Webster's Dictionary of American English 1888

As can be seen from Webster's Dictionary, trees are not people, but something about trees relates to man. Virgins relate to purity; Plants, to growth and utility. The relationship between every day objects, both animate and inanimate, and humanity, have been used throughout Scripture to enrich our understanding of morality. Our relationship to them makes it possible for us to daily interact with scriptural instructions just by merely sighting those natural objects. As a consequence, we are daily reminded of the things that we would otherwise forget in a few hours after acquaintance without being aided by the parables. It is human nature.

We often ascribe the writing of the Proverbs and the Psalm in Scripture to King Dawid (David) and others. But we all know, that by human faculties alone, King Dawid could have no capacity to pen those words. Have you read from the Psalm or Proverbs lately? Did you perceive their sublimity? They are of divine origin. They were written by YaHuWshuaH Himself. Although, by us, they are penned by King Dawid, King Shalomah (Solomon) et al.

The Hebrew word 'mashal' literally means a proverb, a parable or a metaphoric discourse. YaHuWshuaH used various analogies describing earthly events to disclose heavenly secrets, and these were the parables that he used. The term 'mashal' also means a poem. When you read the Hebrew and Aramaic of YaHuWshuaH's poems, or literally his parables, you will see that he was a master Poet, and he used riddles to explain things that had been tucked away as mysteries in the foundations of the physical world; things that YaHuWaH had embedded in the Earth so that we would see the patterns in the earthly and understand the spiritual. ... YaHuWshuaH was a master Teacher. He was the most wise of every teacher that had ever been. YaHuWshuaH, because He is the Word of YaHuWaH, he is the embodiment of the Torah, the instructions and principles of YaHuWaH, the Eternal One. And we give praise for this reason.

The Hebrew word 'Mashal' ... comes from the Hebrew word 'Masiah', ... They are actually interchangeable words. And when we look at the term 'Masiah', we will see that 'Masiah' literally means to rule and reign over, implying the dominion that a king has over his subjects. Therefore YaHuWshuaH used Parables 'Mashal', to 'Masiah', rule and reign over the people. That very term Mashal, then implies an intellectual superiority because the one who gives the parable, the one who gives the proverb, the wise saying; the one who gives the metaphoric discourse; He is demonstrating his rulership over his audience because he is giving them lessons that they must then interpret. This is important because these very parables are all about the Kingdom of the heavens. The two concepts, the concept of parable and ruling and reigning are therefore intertwined in the Hebrew mind and cannot be separated. And for this reason YaHuWshuaH taught in Parables. His Talmydim, 'His students', which are called Shlihiym (Disciples), asked him, "why do you address the crowds in Parables"?
In MattithYahuw Chapter 13, verse 13, we read part of His reply: "Because of this, I speak to them in Parables, because seeing they do not see and hearing they do not hear..."

  1. Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
  2. I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old.
Psalm 78:1-2 RNKJV

As Elohiym's manner is, and ever has been, HE never does anything without letting us (His Servants) know. (Amos 3:7). Before His incarnation, he told us that when He arrives our world as a man, He would 'open His mouth in a parable'. In the Ministry of YaHuWshuaH, that promise, that prophecy was fulfilled. He prefaced the entire discourse in MattithYahuw 13, with a detailed explanation of why He needed to teach in Parables. It made clear that hardened hearts and ears could not relate with anything but parables. They would need to think to interpret the parables. In the process, they might understand. Still, it would assuredly make it impossible for them to understand, because they would refuse to give thought to anything that would lead them to the Savior for their healing! Tragic, indeed. It is the same today. This situation has not changed in the slightest.

What is YaHuWshuaH telling us in the Parable of the Ten Virgins in MattithYahuw 25? What does He mean? Let's begin by revisiting the text again:

  1. Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten Virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
  2. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
  3. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
  4. But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
  5. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
  6. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
  7. Then all those Virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
  8. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
  9. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
  10. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
  11. Afterward came also the other Virgins, saying, My master, my master, open to us.
  12. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
  13. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
MattithYahuw 25: 1 - 13 RNKJV

Having refreshed our minds with the Scripture above, we will do well to ask ourselves a couple of questions. Firstly, why Virgins, why Wise, and why foolish? Do we know what wisdom and foolishness mean? Especially, in this context? Maybe a look at a couple of Dictionary entries might put us in good stead.


  1. Properly, having knowledge; hence, having the power of discerning and judging correctly, or of discriminating between what is true and what is false; between what is fit and proper, and what is improper; as a wise prince; a wise magistrate. Solomon was deemed the wisest man. But a man may be speculatively and not practically wise.
  2. Discrete and judicious in the use or applications of knowledge; choosing laudable ends, and the best means to accomplish them. This is to be practically wise. Genesis 41.
  3. Skillful; dextrous. They are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge. (YirmeYahuw 4.)
Webster's Dictionary of American English; Article: Wise


  1. If wisdom is to be considered as a faculty of the mind, it is the faculty of discerning or judging what is most just, proper and useful,
    and if it is to be considered as an acquirement, it is the knowledge and use of what is best, most just, most proper, most conducive to prosperity or happiness.
    Wisdom in the first sense, or practical wisdom, is nearly synonymous with discretion. It differs somewhat from prudence, in this respect; prudence is the exercise of sound judgment in avoiding evils;
    wisdom is the exercise of sound judgment either in avoiding evils or attempting good. Prudence then is a species, of which wisdom is the genus.
    Wisdom gained by experience, is of inestimable value.
  2. Natural instinct and sagacity. (Iyob 39.)
  3. The right use or exercise of knowledge; the choice of laudable ends, and of the best means to accomplish them.
  4. Quickness of intellect; readiness of apprehension; dexterity in execution; as the wisdom of Bezaleel and Aholiab. (Exodus 31.)
  5. In Scripture theology, wisdom is true religion; godliness; piety; the knowledge and fear of Elohiym, and sincere and uniform obedience to his commands. This is the wisdom which is from above. (Psalm 90. Job 28.)
Webster's Dictionary of American English; Article: Wisdom


  1. One who is destitute of reason, or the common powers of understanding; an idiot.
  2. In common language, a person who is somewhat deficient in intellect, but not an idiot; or a person who acts absurdly; one who does not exercise his reason; one who pursues a course contrary to the dictates of wisdom.
  3. In scripture, fool is often used for a wicked or depraved person; one who acts contrary to sound wisdom in his moral deportment; one who follows his own inclinations, who prefers trifling and temporary pleasures to the service of Elohiym and eternal happiness. "The fool hath said in his heart, there is no Elohiym". Psalm 14.
Webster's Dictionary of American English; Article: Fool


  1. Folly; want of understanding.
  2. Foolish practice; want of wisdom or good judgment.
  3. In a scriptural sense, absurdity; folly. "The preaching of the Cross is to them that perish foolishness". 1 Corinthians 1.
Webster's Dictionary of American English; Article: Foolishness

Surely, it may appear a bit overwhelming to see much varied meanings of 'wisdom' and 'the wise', and 'foolishness' and 'the fool'. The definitions above harmonize with our understanding. But, in all of them, there is nothing that closely captures what the Bible and its Author, the Set-apart Spirit of YaHuWshuaH, meant in this important parable.

In many parts of the East, wedding festivities are held in the evening. The Bridegroom goes forth to take his bride and bring her to his home. By torchlight the bridal party proceed from her father's house to his own, where a feast is provided for the invited guests. In the scene upon which Mashiach looks, a company are awaiting the appearance of the bridal party, intending to join the procession.
Ellen G. White, Mashiach's Object Lessons, p. 405

Some time, the Bridegroom turns up late! It is therefore expected that all those who wish to be part of the event would know that it is a possibility that the estimated arrival time of the Groom is only estimated. Therefore, they are expected to make contingency arrangements to ensure their staying power in the event he defaults. To this extent, the Dictionary, as above, was spot on. If you make use of the information or knowledge available to you, you'll be 'wise'. If you fail to do so, you'll be 'foolish'!

The Parable expected that all the Virgins would have ample supplies of fuel for their lanterns to ensure illumination all through the night. The fuel for this purpose back then was Olive Oil. It was therefore shocking to five of the Virgins when their other peers asked for help with extra oil to see them through the event. Their refusal to help was not meanness! It was simply that everyone was expected to have just enough fuel to supply their lamps and nothing extra. If any of them would part with any part of their extra supply, she would be unable to make it through the night! Certainly, it was no surprise to hear them say, NO. They however advised their friends to head for the Dealers who would be happy to sell to them. But the trouble was, there was no time to make it to the Dealers and back in time to catch the event! But they had no choice but to race to the Dealers. Too bad that when they returned from the Dealers, the Gate was shut. They could not enter! What a tragedy!

Every aspect of this parable is symbolic of something or someone. We should therefore be able to ask a few more questions at this point to help us parse the parable more, namely:

  1. Who is the Bridegroom?
  2. Who are the Virgins?
  3. What event was this really?
  4. What is the Olive Oil?
  5. What made the Five wise?
  6. What made the Five foolish?
  7. Which of the Virgins am I?
As Mashiach sat looking upon the party that waited for the bridegroom, He told His disciples the story of the ten Virgins, by their experience illustrating the experience of the church that shall live just before His second coming.
The two classes of watchers represent the two classes who profess to be waiting for their Master. They are called Virgins because they profess a pure faith. By the lamps is represented the word of Elohiym. The psalmist says, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Psalm 119:105. The oil is a symbol of the Set-apart Spirit. Thus the Spirit is represented in the prophecy of ZekarYahuw. “The Angel that talked with me came again,” he says, “and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep, and said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof; and two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof. So I answered and spake to the Angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord? ... Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of YaHuWaH unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, saith YaHuWaH of hosts.... And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves? ... Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Master of the whole Earth.” ZekarYahuw 4:1-14.
Ellen G. White, Mashiach's Object Lessons, p. 406

Here we have it.

Who is the Bridegroom?
The Master, YaHuWshuaH.
Who are the Virgins?
Two classes of Natsariym. They 'profess a pure faith'. Excludes all who are not professing a "pure faith".
What event did this Parable typify?
The Marriage of YaHuWshuaH to His Bride, the Church.
What is the Olive Oil?
The Oil is the Set-apart Spirit.
What made the Five wise?
They have a full supply of the Set-apart Spirit.
What made the Five foolish?
They were destitute of the Set-apart Spirit.
Which of the Virgins am I?
Ask again, please.

Let us dig a little deeper. In the Spirit of Prophecy is the eyewitness account of the events we are discussing. Let us see more through Ellen White's prophetic eyes.

In the parable, all the ten Virgins went out to meet the bridegroom. All had lamps and vessels for oil. For a time there was seen no difference between them. So with the church that lives just before Mashiach's second coming. All have a knowledge of the Scriptures. All have heard the message of Mashiach's near approach, and confidently expect His appearing. But as in the parable, so it is now. A time of waiting intervenes, faith is tried; and when the cry is heard, “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet Him,” many are unready. They have no oil in their vessels with their lamps. They are destitute of the Set-apart Spirit.

Without the Spirit of Elohiym a knowledge of His word is of no avail. The theory of truth, unaccompanied by the Set-apart Spirit, cannot quicken the soul or sanctify the heart. One may be familiar with the commands and promises of the Bible; but unless the Spirit of Elohiym sets the truth home, the character will not be transformed. Without the enlightenment of the Spirit, men will not be able to distinguish truth from error, and they will fall under the masterful temptations of Satan.

The class represented by the foolish Virgins are not hypocrites. They have a regard for the truth, they have advocated the truth, they are attracted to those who believe the truth; but they have not yielded themselves to the Set-apart Spirit's working. They have not fallen upon the Rock, Mashiach YaHuWshuaH, and permitted their old nature to be broken up. This class are represented also by the stony-ground hearers. They receive the word with readiness, but they fail of assimilating its principles. Its influence is not abiding. The Spirit works upon man's heart, according to his desire and consent implanting in him a new nature; but the class represented by the foolish Virgins have been content with a superficial work. They do not know Elohiym. They have not studied His character; they have not held communion with Him; therefore they do not know how to trust, how to look and live. Their service to Elohiym degenerates into a form.

“They come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as My people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.” Yehezki'el 33:31. The apostle Paul points out that this will be the special characteristic of those who live just before Mashiach's second coming. He says, “In the last days perilous times shall come: for men shall be lovers of their own selves; ... lovers of pleasures more than lovers of Elohiym; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof.” 2 Timothy 3:1-5.

This is the class that in time of peril are found crying, Peace and safety. They lull their hearts into security, and dream not of danger. When startled from their lethargy, they discern their destitution, and entreat others to supply their lack; but in spiritual things no man can make up another's deficiency. The grace of Elohiym has been freely offered to every soul. The message of the gospel has been heralded, “Let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” Revelation 22:17. But character is not transferable. No man can believe for another. No man can receive the Spirit for another. No man can impart to another the character which is the fruit of the Spirit's working. “Though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it [the land], as I live, saith YaHuWaH Elohiym, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness.” Yehezki'el 14:20.

It is in a crisis that character is revealed. When the earnest voice proclaimed at midnight, “Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him,” and the sleeping Virgins were roused from their slumbers, it was seen who had made preparation for the event. Both parties were taken unawares; but one was prepared for the emergency, and the other was found without preparation. So now, a sudden and unlooked-for calamity, something that brings the soul face to face with death, will show whether there is any real faith in the promises of Elohiym. It will show whether the soul is sustained by grace. The great final test comes at the close of human probation, when it will be too late for the soul's need to be supplied.

The ten Virgins are watching in the evening of this Earth's history. All claim to be Natsariym. All have a call, a name, a lamp, and all profess to be doing Elohiym's service. All apparently wait for Mashiach's appearing. But five are unready. Five will be found surprised, dismayed, outside the banquet hall.

At the final day, many will claim admission to Mashiach's kingdom, saying, “We have eaten and drunk in Thy presence, and Thou hast taught in our streets.” Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Thy name? and in Thy name have cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works?” But the answer is, “I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from Me.” Luke 13:26; MattithYahuw 7:22; Luke 13:27. In this life they have not entered into fellowship with Mashiach;...
Ellen G. White, Mashiach's Object Lessons, p. 408 -412

“And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, HalleluYah; for YaHuWaH Elohiym omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him; for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready... And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.” “He is Master of Masters, and King of kings; and they that are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful.” Revelation 19:6-9; 17:14.
Ellen G. White, Mashiach's Object Lessons, p. 421

At this point we can summarize our learning of the Parable. The Marriage is, in a way, the end; the Virgins, the endtime church membership waiting for their Master's arrival; the lamps, the Word of YaHuWaH - the Bible in Old and New Testaments; the Oil, manifestly the Set-apart Spirit of YaHuWshuaH; the hour is midnight, the world's moral midnight right upon of us.
Now let us dig a little deeper into Scripture for more, especially of the "Oil", the Set-apart Spirit and Wisdom. First, a little of the Bible's definition of Wisdom. Surely, we would be able to contrast this definition with Webster's definitions which we read above.

  1. Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as YaHuWaH my Elohiym commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.
  2. Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.
  3. For what nation is there so great, who hath Elohiym so nigh unto them, as YaHuWaH our Elohiym is in all things that we call upon him for?
  4. And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?
Deuteronomy 4:5-8 RNKJV

The Five Wise Virgins
The Five Wise Virgins
  1. And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of YaHuWaH, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
  2. Job 28:28 RNKJV

  1. For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.
  2. I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.
  3. The fear of YaHuWaH is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
  4. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.
  5. By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.
  6. By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the Earth.
  7. I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.
  8. Proverbs 8:11-17 RNKJV

Here we see that Wisdom is a Person. Wisdom is YaHuWshuaH, the Son of Elohiym. Wisdom is YaHuWaH, the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth. Wisdom is the Word of Elohiym, "Debar YaHuWaH". There's more. Here we need to know for sure what made the Five wise Virgins stand out. What will I have today to know that I have Wisdom?

  1. My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;
  2. So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;
  3. Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;
  4. If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;
  5. Then shalt thou understand the fear of YaHuWaH, and find the knowledge of Elohiym.
  6. For YaHuWaH giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
  7. He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.
  8. He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his Saints.
  9. Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.
  10. When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;
  11. Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:
Proverbs 2:1-11 RNKJV

Those who receive Wisdom are those who search the Word and dig deep into the Word and value the Word above all else. How many of us are spending time in His Word. If you are the casual reader of Scripture, you could never find or possess Wisdom. Our zeal and time spent on scripture; our delight in it, unlocks Elohiym's Hand to bestow His gift of Wisdom on us.

For YaHuWaH ... is the one who gives wisdom. He's the one who gives skill. He's the one who gives prudence. He's the one who gives foresight and understanding. So if you are seeking after one who is a spiritist; One who is a psychic; one who is a worshipper of idols; and they claim to have wisdom. And they claim that they can tell you or instruct you. ... Know that only YaHuWaH gives wisdom. There are many people today who will claim to be Wise in the religious arena; in the political arena; in the arena of Science who will claim to have wisdom. But "Chokmah" Wisdom, comes from YaHuWaH. Wisdom comes from YaHuWaH. He is the source. So we seek him, and 'wisdom' from Him.
Mark Manning | malak@messengerofthename.com

  1. YaHuWaH's voice crieth unto the city, and the man of wisdom shall see thy name: ...
Micah 6:9 RNKJV

Put simply, if you have Wisdom, you will see the Creator's Name. You will seek to know, to understand and call upon His Name. Those who seek Wisdom seek it from Wisdom Himself. Who Is Wisdom? YaHuWaH Elohiym, He is Wisdom. You will love His Name. The evidence that we are Wise and have wisdom is our possession of the Creator's Name: YaHuWaH. But contrasted with this is the attitude of Fools! Psalm 74:18 clarifies it as follows:

18) Remember this: the enemy has reproached YaHuWaH, And a foolish people has despised Your Name.
Psalm 74:18 TS2009

Fools despise His personal Name. They make light of it. They show no respect let alone reverence for His sacred Name!

“For You are my lamp, O YaHuWaH, And YaHuWaH makes my darkness light.
2 Samuel 22:29 TS2009

Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Psalm 119:98-105 RNKJV

The Lamp is the Word. The Lamp is YaHuWaH!

You see the wise and the foolish Virgins have many things in common. They're all Virgins. However, they also all have lamps. That is something that many people overlook, the Wise and the foolish Virgins are equipped with lamps. The scriptures. So both groups acknowledge the importance of the scriptures. However, the foolish Virgins only do so with their mouth. They may observe certain commandments. They might rest on the Sabbath. They might keep the Feasts, but they are not doing the fullness of YaHuWaH's word. They are those who will not proclaim the Name of YaHuWaH. They turned a blind eye, and they deafen their ears when it comes to the Name of YaHuWaH. They will not have any part in it, but they think somehow, that if they keep different principles and precepts, that they will receive the redemption by bypassing YaHuWaH altogether and going straight to just his commandments and just ignoring him, but focusing only on what they can do. This is the difference between a wise, and a foolish Virgin and notice that both groups were sleeping. They were in spiritual slumber until the last days.
And in the Great Awakening now taking place, many are waking up all over the world. The Virgins are waking up. And what do they do when they wake up? All begin to trim their lamps. If you consult the Aramaic text and look up this word "trimmed", you'll notice that it comes from the Hebrew, which means to restore, to revive, to mend, to repair, to fix.
And we are trimming the lamps, trimming the Wicks, getting those lamps ready for use, then what is happening is that the wise and the foolish Virgins are going back to the Word and they are beginning to repair and restore those things that they may have not been doing correctly. They're trying to make sure everything is in order. That their walk with YaHuWaH is in its proper balance according to the scriptures. So both groups are going back to the Word. Both groups are beginning to understand the importance of restoration of the principles and the precepts in the Torah. Both groups are keeping Commandments in the Torah because they are getting ready for the Bridegroom. But the ONLY difference is that the foolish Virgins, though they are trimming their Wicks, they are doing so hypocritically knowing that they do not have Oil in their containers.

The Hebrew Alef Bet with meaning to each alphabet
The Hebrew Alphabet (Alef Bet)
Note Meaning of Each Alphabet

Now let us examine the Oil a bit more. The Hebrew word for Oil is "SHEMEN". Notice also that the Hebrew word for name is "SHEM". And when a Yahuwdiy person today wants to reference Elohiym's personal Name, they often say, "haShem". Meaning, the Name. That's orthodox Yahuwdiy wisdom, removed from true Wisdom! But, let us see how the Scripture ties up both the Oil and the Name. It is exceedingly wonderful. In Song of Songs, Chapter 1, verse 3:

The Divine Name in Hebrew Alef Bet For fragrance your oils are good. Your name is Oil poured forth, therefore the young women love you.
Song of Solomon 1:3 TS2009

A cursory look at the text above reads something like this in Hebrew, "Your SHEM is SHEMEN poured forth". The two words are closely related sharing the same Hebrew root. But, it is very clear at this point that having Oil in your lamp is having the personal name of the Creator. You must have His Personal Name - YaHuWaH. This is the OIL.
Therefore, the 'young women love you'. Therefore, the Church loves YaHuWaH, the true Church, Natsariym, loves His Name, YaHuWaH. Those who love Him proclaim His Name and call upon His Name especially at this time when Satan through his church confederates would not even acknowledge His Name and are content to use Satan's substitutes for our Father's Name!
Now it is clearer why Virgins without Oil cannot make the Kingdom! Why? Because, YaHuWshuaH said ... in MattithYahuw 22:37 RNKJV
Thou shalt love YaHuWaH thy Elohiym with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
How can you expect entry into the Marriage without love for the Father of the Groom? Surely, it must be impossible. Natsariym have His Name and call upon His name. "Christians" do NOT! Those are the Two Classes. Names graphic


The Divine Name

The Father's Name, YaHuWaH, is the Oil. The Set-apart Spirit is the Oil. We need to dig a little deeper into this.
Here we need to leverage a little study of the Hebrew language. Do not worry, it will be just pictorial. Nothing too complicated.
Every letter in the Hebrew language, is also a word. The Hebrew alphabet is called the 'Alef-Bet'. There are twenty-two letters in the Alef-Bet, starting with the 'Alef', to the 'Tau'. The first letter 'Alef', means, "Ox head, Strength, Leader". The second letter 'Bet', means 'house, family, Inn'. When we examine the word meaning of every letter in the Name of the Father, the name that is above all names, what do we find?

The Father's Name reveals the Son
Read from the Right
Father's Hand, The Son, the Crucifixion & Resurrection, The Son

The Father's Name in the English language is spelt YHWH , and pronounced YaHuWaH. In the Hebrew language, it is written from the left to right: "HWHY". The first letter in the Father's name, is the letter 'Yod'. It means, 'hand, arm'. The second letter is 'Hey'. It means, 'behold, worship'. The third letter is 'waw, or vav'. It means 'Nail, tent peg'. The fourth and last letter in the Father's name, is again, 'Hey'. Again, as earlier stated, it means 'behold, worship'. Taken together, it reads, "Hand Behold, Nail Behold". This is a revelation of the Son of Elohiym. He sits at the right hand of the Father, worshiping Him and serving His Father. The Son then is slain with 'Nails'! But He resurrects and again returns to worship His Father. Amazing, indeed, stunning! The Father's name reveals the Son. On the other hand, the Son's Name is "YaHuWshuaH".
We shall find that the Son's Name reveals the Father! Really Mysterious, stunning, amazing in no small way.

In the Hebrew, the Son's Name is spelt "Yod, Hey, Waw, Shin, Waw, Ayin". It means, " YaHuWaH Saves". The Son's Name is a declaration of the Father's place and role; reveals the Father. Amazingly stunning. Recall what YaHuWshuaH said in Yahuwchanon 14:11 (RNKJV): Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me... YaHuWshuaH and YaHuWaH are ONE and the same. YaHuWshuaH is YaHuWaH's human form. For more, on how they are two seemingly different persons, visit this page please.

  1. The Spirit of the Master YaHuWaH is upon me; because YaHuWaH hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
YeshaYahuw 61:1 RNKJV

How was YaHuWshuaH 'anointed'?

  1. And having been immersed, YaHuWshuaH went up immediately from the water, and see, the heavens were opened, and He saw the Spirit of Elohiym descending like a dove and coming upon Him.
MattithYahuw 3:16 TS2009

...began from Galilee, after the baptism which Yahuwchanon preached; How YaHuWaH anointed YaHuWshuaH of Nazareth with the Set-apart Spirit and with power: ...; for YaHuWaH was with him.
Acts 10:37-38 RNKJV

The entrance of the Spirit of the Father into YaHuWshuaH, was the "anointing". He was invested with the Father's Name. The Father YaHuWaH is the Oil. The Spirit of the Father is the Father YaHuWaH.
It was necessary for the Son to have the Father and the Father's Name in Him and on His forehead, we too must be anointed by the Father and have His name printed on our foreheads. If His Name, YaHuWaH, is not printed on our forehead, we are left to have the Mark of the Beast! That is the alternative. Having the Mark of the Beast, guarantees our inevitable eternal destruction! YaHuWaH forbid that we should choose to reject His Name!

Now, in the words of Revelation 14:1-9 RNKJV:

And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads... And there followed another Angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And the third Angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead...,

When we declare our acceptance of the Savior and His death in place of ours; when we declare our membership of His Kingdom, typically when we are baptized, we are JUSTIFIED. This confers full perfection on us. All our prior sins are blotted away. The Father's Name is printed on our foreheads. If we die on the same day, we are bound for eternal life, like the "thief on the Cross".
But, it is not always so. We often live beyond the hour of our Justification. And, beyond that moment, SANCTIFICATION becomes the goal. In other words, daily Justification, which is the result of daily efforts to sustain our perfection. Many fail here, believing that, 'once saved, always saved'! Fatal mistake! If beyond our Justification, we fail to comply with the conditions of the New Covenant daily, in other words, we go to sleep; our Oil dries up. The terms of the New Covenant, remain immutable: "Obey me and live; disobey me and die". Before going to sleep, if we had gone on to obey His Commandments, first and foremost, making His Name our own, we may sleep freely, knowing that when we awake, our extra supply of Oil will see us over the hump. Else, we will be awakened at midnight seeking Oil. Too late then when we realize that we cannot switch things off and on at will! When we went to sleep, the Father's Name is taken off our foreheads! This is so because we joined the careless in making light of His Awesome Name, and not obeying in fullness, the terms of the Covenant. Our Oil dries up!

Finally, remember the following:

  • The two classes were Virgins. Believed only the Truth. No deception. No lies.
    "These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth..."
    (Revelation 14:4 RNKJV)
  • No one from any other faith or religion gets to this point where they are close to taking part in the Marriage. Your religion or denomination is not the issue here. However, you must obey YaHuWaH's Commandments in full. 100%. Anything less rules you out (James 2:10). So, the nearer to perfection of truth your religion or denomination is, the better your chances. This is the advantage that Seventh Day Adventists have. But, even they still have a great deal of catching up to do before the Midnight Cry. Their Leaders froze the denomination from the day they were organized! Have rejected all Light since.
  • They all went to sleep with Oil in their Lamps. One group's Oil outlasted the darkness, while the other group's oil dried up during the night!
    "Who is among you that feareth YaHuWaH, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of YaHuWaH, and stay upon his Elohiym. Behold, all ye that kindle a fire, that compass yourselves about with sparks: walk in the light of your fire, and in the sparks that ye have kindled. This shall ye have of mine hand; ye shall lie down in sorrow". (YeshaYahuw 50:10-11 RNKJV)
  • They both had the Word, the Lamp. They awoke to trim their lamps. One group successfully trimmed their lamps. The other couldn't! We all have our Bibles. What are we doing with them?
  • The OIL, the Father's Name is revealed in Scripture. The Savior, during HIS first sermon in the Nazareth Synagogue proclaimed the Father's Name to the shock of the congregants that day. At that time, the Yahuwdiym had banned the use of HIS Name!
    "O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them". (Yahuwchanon 17:25-26 RNKJV)
  • The Oil is NOT shareable. Not transferable.
  • Your history is irrelevant. Your Status today is what counts.
    1. Say unto them, As I live, saith the Master YaHuWaH, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?
    2. Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth.
    3. When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it.
    4. Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right;
    5. If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die.
    6. None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live.
    7. Yechezkiy'el 33: 11 - 16 RNKJV

Remain blessed beloved for taking precious time to study this matter. Remain reminded that His Name is NOT God, (which is the shortened and camouflaged form of Satan's personal name: Gad). NOT the LORD (which is Satan's nickname, Ba'al). NOT JEHOVAH (meaning: I will be perverse!) His Name is YaHuWaH . HE IS Elohiym. His Son's Name is YaHuWshuaH (meaning: YaHuWaH SAVES). Please see this page and this One too for more on these most important subjects.
