“The bridegroom was a long time in coming” ([tippy title=”Matthew 25:5″ class=”” showheader=”true” href=”” width=”450″ height=”50″]5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.[/tippy]).
Jesus is the bridegroom, and his people constitute his bride. The Bible tells us that one day Jesus will return to earth for his bride.
The bridegroom, however, has been a long time in coming and many Christians have lost both interest and the Holy Spirit. And because they no longer have the oil of the Holy Spirit, their lamps (themselves) have gone out. They no longer shine Jesus’ light in the world.
It is of the utmost importance that we keep full of the God’s Spirit while we wait for the coming of Jesus.
