I'm going through the kind of phase
That happens now and then
When all my simple Christian walk
Reverts to way back when
My comfort zone has disappeared
I'm slithering on glass
And all my gremlins come alive
To recollect my past.
There is no pride in what I was
My Son, my Beloved, My Servant, my chosen one—
You please me;
I delight in You, for You have chosen
to fulfill all righteousness.
My Spirit will fill You,
anointing You with power—
to heal, to free, to reveal—
to give true sight to the blind,
and bring true justice to the Earth.
You will proclaim My Kingdom;
You will complete My Covenant;
You will provide the Sacrifice;
You will become

"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
As with any of the parables, if you are going to look at the things that represent something in that parable, you have to read it in context first. The parable of the ten virgins talks about the end times and how we are to be ready, regardless of the fact if we are still here when Jesus returns, or if we pass from this life before He returns. Either way, we are faced with an End Time. Lets look at the verses first:
1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened
Plonk yourself down on that chair
And spend some time with Me
I'm dying to catch up with you
Your joy's and miseries
All your hopes and many fears
That seem to rule your day
Do you need My guiding hand
My help and My okay?
For it is quite a lonely road
