Be Ready Already 

Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 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. 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. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. (Matthew 25:1-13, KJV)

The ten virgins is a metaphor of the Body of Jesus Christ. The bridegroom represent Jesus Christ the Son of God. We as followers of Jesus are His bride to be one with Him as well as with God the Father for eternity. The five wise virgins went into the marriage, but the five foolish virgins were left out. The five foolish virgins was not allowed to come in because they did not supply themselves with what was needed in order to meet the bridegroom when the call was made that the bridegroom is coming and to go meet him. It is wise for us as believers to prepare ourselves for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Sometimes we get carried away with the things of the world that pulls us away from applying ourselves to the Word, will, and works of God. It is vital for us to apply ourselves to His Word and will. God has provided us Holy Spirit and the fellowship of one another to be lead and guided unto all truths as Holy Spirit keeps us sealed until the day of redemption.
