|Psalms 45:13-15 |
13 The king's daughter is all glorious within; her clothing is of wrought gold.
14 She shall be brought to the king in garments of needlework; she shall be brought to you with the virgins, her companions, who follow her.1
15 They shall be brought with gladness and rejoicing; they shall enter into the king's palace.
1 The king's daughter is all glorious within; her clothing is of wrought gold. She shall be brought to the king in garments of needlework; she shall be brought to you with the virgins, her companions, who follow her. David is describing the bride of Christ, the body of his believers who have purified themselves to be all glorious within. These are those sons of God who followed the lamb (obeyed the Voice of Christ) on the earth wherever he went and who were not defiled by women, having been made chaste virgins again by the grace and power of God. These are those whose robes were washed white in the blood of the lamb. But if we walk in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin. 1 John 1:7.
"Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Those who were foolish took their lamps, but took no oil with them. But the wise took oil in their flasks along with their lamps. When the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil; for our lamps have gone out.' But the wise answered, saying, 'No we can't; for fear that there is not enough for us and you; rather you go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.' And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came. Those who were ready went in with him to the marriage; and the door was shut. Mat 25:1-10
"Truly I say to you that unless you are converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven." Mat 18:3.
