Those in the know say we are headed for some difficult times in 2011 yet we do not fear

Those in the 'know' say we are headed for some difficult times in 2011…Yet we do not fear


The 9fruit of the spirit

Mat 6:31 "Do not worry then, saying, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear for clothing?' 32 "For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 "But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. 34 "So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own


The 9fruit of the spirit

Jas 4:13 Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit." 14 Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. 15 Instead, you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that."


It is now that our peace our hope our joy must be in the lord it must not be on possessions

It is now, that our peace, our hope, our joy must be in the Lord!It must not be on possessions…

We have been talking about the best two ways to prepare…Put on the armor of GodHave the Fruit of the SpiritLet’s look at some other ways God wants us to prepare…


The 9fruit of the spirit

Heb 10:23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; Heb 10:24 and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, Heb 10:25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.


The parable of the 10 virgins

Matthew 25:1-4

10 virgins go out to meet the bridegroom

Don’t know time of his arrival (They do know the day)

5 take extra oil (in case he is late)

5 take no extra (assuming he will come soon)

Matthew 25:5

Bridegroom waited until the midnight hour

Virgins fell asleep, their lamps were still lit

The Parable of the 10 Virgins


The parable of the 10 virgins1

Matthew 25:6-7

At midnight the Bridegroom’s approach is announced

Lamps are trimmed to make them brighter for the approaching groom

Matthew 25:8-9

All the lamps would have been low on oil

5 use their extra oil to refill their lamps – they were prepared

5 want the others to share – they thought they didn’t need to prepare

Still no certainty how long until the groom comes or enters the feasting hall

The wise might need all the oil they had, so they

Tell the foolish to run buy some more oil

The Parable of the 10 Virgins


The parable of the 10 virgins2

Matthew 25:10

The groom arrives, quickly enters the wedding feast

The door is shut while the foolish are still gone

Matthew 25:11-12

The 5 foolish virgins arrive later and seek entry

Not allowed entry

Matthew 25:13

Be ready, be prepared, to endure to the midnight hour – have provisions!

The Parable of the 10 Virgins

  • 2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.

  • 2Pe 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief

Extra Oil – two meanings:-literal – Have supplies enough to last

Luk 22:35 And He said to them, "When I sent you out without money belt and bag and sandals, you did not lack anything, did you?" They said, "No, nothing."

Luk 22:36 And He said to them, "But now, whoever has a money belt is to take it along, likewise also a bag, and whoever has no sword is to sell his coat and buy one. -figurative – Be filled with the Holy Spirit


Extra oil

Act 1:6 So when they had come together, they were asking Him, saying, "Lord, is it at this time You are restoring the kingdom to Israel?"

Act 1:7 He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority;

Act 1:8 but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth."

Mic 7:6 For son treats father contemptuously, Daughter rises up against her mother, Daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; A man's enemies are the men of his own household. Mic 7:7 But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation. My God will hear me.

The signs are truly yelling wake up

2Pe 3:3 Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts.

2Ti 3:1 But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.

Mat 10:22 "You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved.

Mat 5:11 "Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.

Mat 5:12 "Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Jam 5:8 You too be patient; strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is near.

Jam 5:9 Do not complain, brethren, against one another, so that you yourselves may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing right at the door.

Jam 5:10 As an example, brethren, of suffering and patience, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.

Jam 5:11 We count those blessed who endured.

The signs are truly yelling, 'wake up'…


The 9fruit of the spirit

  • Eph 5:14 For this reason it says, "Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine on you."

  • Eph 5:15 Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise,

  • Eph 5:16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil.


The 9fruit of the spirit

  • Rom 13:11 Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed.

  • Rom 13:12 The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.


As darkness increases we need to shine brighter

Mat 5:13 "You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.

Mat 5:14 "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden;

Mat 5:15 nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.

Mat 5:16 "Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

As darkness increases we need to shine brighter!

     32"I tell you the truth, this generation[b] will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.

    What things? Next week we will see!
