The Lord has something precious for His people during the season of 2021. The basis for what He is planning to do for His people is found in Matthew 25: 1-13.
This passage reveals the Lord’s “Light To Love.”
Matthew 25: 1-13 “1Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9But 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. 10And 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. 11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.”
There were ten virgins with five that were foolish because they didn’t take extra oil with them. There were five wise virgins because they did bring extra oil. One of the most blaring things to be seen in this passage is that during the midnight the bridegroom came in the darkest portion of the night.
It was the virgins that had light that allowed them to enter through the door of love with Love. This is the year of “Light To Love.”
Loving The Unlovable
In this season, there will be many things that come to light. It is a season where people will have the light to love people that they couldn’t love before. As a result, those who begin to love others as they couldn’t before will become healed in their bodies as symptoms leave.
As people begin to love others that they could not love before, symptoms will begin leaving their bodies and they will be healed.
This is also a season of marriage because it is a season of relationships. This season of marriage is both literal and figurative.
A season of relationships that will change people’s lives. For those who receive this word, they will come into contact with people who will have people come up to them and even though they have never seen them, the person will minister the favor of God to them.
The people who are ministering this favor will not even know why they are doing it, but just have such an urgency to bless those who believe this word and have placed a demand on what they believe.
It will be the light that is ministering to them from the Word of Love.
Rest can be seen in Matthew 25: 5. “While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.” While all were sleeping and slumbering. There were those who were in a right position and others who were not.
When a believer rests it is then that God begins to work (Hebrews 3 &4). Always remember, when we work God rests, but when we rest God works.
As we begin to pray and rest in this season, God is planning to do mighty works.
While God did not cause the Covid-19 pandemic, He did allow it to happen during this sabbath year. Covid-19 is the result of man’s sin that must be judged during this season as He outlined in Deuteronomy 15:1 “At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release.” The sabbath year season is a time when people are expected to rest from their normal duties to spend time with their families and worship God.
If they do not willfully rest then the Lord allows for a forced rest, such as with Covid, as has been the case in previous sabbath years.
Both Have Oil
Notice that both the five wise and the five foolish virgins have oil. These ten virgins could all be considered Christians. However, the five virgins that didn’t make it in the wedding because they didn’t have the light.
The five foolish didn’t make it in because they didn’t have extra oil. This is a season that people may have extra this year. People will have an opportunity for all the oil they desire.
The oil is to be translated to mean healing, resources, and relationships. Believers have the opportunity to have all the oil they desire this season. It is possible this season to have as much as one desires.
There are relationships that the oil will provide to allow meetings between people that would never have normally met. One interpretation is the supernatural rest in relationships. This season determines who the real friends and family members are. Believers will see how God is really with them.
With Satan always working some evil plan, there will be a midnight. The dark place that is ahead. The place where believers will not know which way to turn. Situations where it is so dark that people do not know what to do.
Remember this. At the midnight hour, it is necessary to listen because there will be a herald that ‘the Bridegroom cometh.’ Jesus will be right there as an ever present help in time of need.
Leaving When Should Be Receiving
The five wise virgins had enough oil to take them through the midnight hour and into the wedding. They had the force of patience at work for them with the extra oil.
The five foolish virgins were in position with the five wise virgins but in a time when they all should be stepping into the great opportunity of their life. A time that would change them forever, the five foolish virgins are leaving and not receiving the greatest opportunity of their life because they didn’t have enough oil.
Why did the foolish leave? The Word helps us to understand it is because they didn’t have enough oil. Next question. Why didn’t they have enough oil?
Ready With The Right Thing
The women certainly all prepared to go to the wedding. All of these women certainly got ready and we are sure they were dolled up. Hair was intricately fixed. Makeup was amazingly applied. Their dress attire was immaculately fit and placed.
Those things are important in being prepared. Notice, very particularly that the Word shares that what determined if they were foolish or wise was how much oil they had prepared.
As important as those other things were, it doesn’t matter how beautiful your outer appearance may be if you don’t have the light so that the bridegroom sees you.
It is critical to be ready with the right thing. The foolish virgins were not being led by the Holy Spirit. The reason why they didn’t have enough oil is answered in (Mark 4: 1-20)
Glory To Glory
This is a year to focus on the oil and fire because these are manifestations of the glory of God.
In 2019, the Glory of God fell at Great Smyrna and there were amazing healing and prosperity miracles that happened. The glory is falling but at a much higher level than what we have seen before.
This year of Light To Love may also be shared in the expression from Glory To Glory. Light and Love are manifestations of the glory of God.
In the last part of this passage it is clear to see that the five foolish returned. As they returned to the greatest opportunity of their life. They were knocking on the door.
The bridegroom answered and said for them to go away because He did not know them. They tried to return and retrieve their greatest opportunity but the bridegroom said that He didn’t know them.
It is possible to perceive in this passage their desperation. These foolish virgins are shaken. During this season there will be many shakings because of not focusing on the oil, lamp, and light.
There are shakings that will take place in the government. Shakings will take place in the church. There will be many shakings that take place this year. Be ready.
It is a season to prepare heart and soul for the manifestations of the glory of God.
A recent testimony shared by one of our church mother’s exemplifies this so well. She and one of our other church mother’s and brothers were at a restaurant not long ago.
They had finished their meal and out of nowhere this man walks up to our Great Smyrna church mother and says ‘hey miss.’ Next, he winks at her and begins to say some very lovely things to her.
Our Great Smyrna church mother was very gracious and smiled while being patient with the gentleman.
Once out of the restaurant the church mother looked at the people she was with and shared I don’t know who that was.
What had happened was the Lord had released his Light To Love.
