The clamor at midnight...


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, sayingNot so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
10 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.
11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

The ten virgins - verses 1-4... a picture of the saved and unsaved on Judgment Day, May 21, 2011 (M21).
The Lord had allowed us to incorrectly assume that the Rapture was to occur on May 21, 2011 and we were ready, the saved and some of the unsaved. Judgment Day marked the beginning of the night. This night (without Light) continues until the End. All were awake because we all had the knowledge of the Timeline. God had given us this knowledge. But this knowledge only reached up to Judgment Day. We did not have any spiritual knowledge that pertained to the time after Judgment Day.

The Bible describes two meanings of the word "awake". Both verses below explain being "awakened" as salvation - life from death. But Proverbs 6:19-22 also explains another meaning, receiving the knowledge of God through the Holy Spirit.

(Eph 5:14 [KJV])
Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

Proverbs 6:19-22
A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother: Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck. When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.

Verses 5 & 6 show a different period of time. A period of time after Judgment Day. We all slumbered and slept.
No one was alert to what was going on. Except for some basic learning from the Bible that we were in the waiting period as the Lord "tarried", He did not give us any concrete new knowledge as to when this waiting period would end... and why. But look what happens in verse 6. At midnight they (all 10 virgins) were awakened and were warned that the bridegroom will be coming and to go out to meet Him (Daniel 11:34 - we are given a little help). Midnight starts the last half of the final hours of the night. According to all the compound corresponding evidence the Rapture appears to be within the year 2025. That's 14 years after Judgment Day. The year 2018 is the halfway point - midnight. We now have enough wisdom and knowledge from our Lord to broadcast the warning or "cry" that He will be coming. This is not a warning to the World as was M21 but a "cry" out to His people. To be prepared.

Verse 7 clearly gives us the picture that there was an extended period of time that the 10 virgins were asleep because after they were awakened at midnight, they all trimmed their lamps. This shows they were burning for quite some time.

Verses 8-10 show us that there is a time period from the time verse 6 sends out the "cry" and when the Bridegroom actually arrives. Five of the virgins ask oil from the other prepared virgins but are refused. Why? Because the prepared virgins know there is a period of time between the time they go out to meet Him and the time they actually receive Him, "Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you...", they want to make sure they have enough oil for their trek. On another note, the unprepared virgins have no oil because they are olives that were not pressed through the Great Winepress of Revelation 14 for 1600 Furlongs (1600 weeks - Sept. 7, 1994 - May 7, 2025).

And finally verse 13 once again declares the warning to be prepared and watch for we cannot know the day or hour. There is no evidence here that supports the idea that the elect can know the day or hour. We absolutely can not know the day or hour.


Another interesting point to consider in Psalm 19
Concerning the Bridegroom and running the race

Ps 19:4-5 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

The word, "them" , is referring to the Lord's voice and knowledge given to man (in the previous verses 1-3). Here the Lord is showing us that the sun arises forth from His tabernacle which is daybreak, dawn, morning. God now compares the rising of the sun to the Brideroom coming out of His chamber (Jesus). We now know that the return of Jesus at the End will be after these 14 years of darkness. This darkness ends when the morning SunLight (the Bridegroom/Jesus) appears at the End of the world. 

Not only that but as the verse continues, we that are running the race during these 1600 furlongs will rejoice of His coming!

STUDY POINT:  The 10 virgins were awakened and received additional information at about midnight that the bridegroom was soon coming.
It so appears now that the elect have been awakened and have received additional information at about midnight that the Lord is soon coming (2018 is the halfway point between 2011-2025 when was once again online). We also now know in what watch He shall return... when the night ends which is morning.

Hearing the "cry" at midnight

The 10 Virgins incorrectly assumed that the bridegroom would come at evening. They later heard an outcry at midnight that the bridegroom was coming and after some time they met Him.
