The Rapture of the Believers

Let's Pray:

Lord, Your word is Your embodiment. We desire to gain You through Your word. We are not here to listen to some so-called prophecies in a curious way. Rather, we are here seeking after You.

Hymn: Rescue the perishing

Today's Verses:  

Matt. 25:1-13

25:1 At that time the kingdom of the heavens will be likened to ten virgins, who took their lamps and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

25:2 And five of them were foolish and five were prudent.

25:3 For the foolish, when they took their lamps, did not take oil with them;

25:4 But the prudent took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

25:5 And while the bridegroom delayed, they all became drowsy and slept.

25:6 But at midnight there was a cry, Behold, the bridegroom! Go forth to meet him!

25:7 Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their own lamps.

25:8 And the foolish said to the prudent, Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.

25:9 But the prudent answered, saying, Perhaps there will not be enough for us and for you; go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.

25:10 And as they were going away to buy, the bridegroom came; and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast. And the door was shut.

25:11 And later the rest of the virgins came also, saying, Lord, lord, open to us!

25:12 But he answered and said, Truly I say to you, I do not know you.

25:13 Watch therefore, for you do not know the day nor the hour.
