TEXT: Matthew 25:1-13

1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

9 But 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.

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 Tragedy of Not Being Ready, Part 3

From this passage, we have established the context of Jesus’ parable, noting the likening of Christ to the bridegroom and the likening of His church to the virgins. As the ancient marriage traditions of the Jews tell us, the bridegroom goes away to prepare a place where he will abide with his bride. When he is finished, he goes to retrieve his bride, so they can begin their new life together. Unfortunately, in Jesus’ parable, when the bridegroom came at midnight and the announcement was made that he was ready to receive his bride, five of the virgins had no oil, and so could not light their lamps to go and meet the groom.

We often speak of the foolish virgins as though their error is simply that they brought no extra oil with them. However, that is not what Jesus states in His parable. Jesus says the foolish virgins had lamps, but had NO OIL at all. “They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.” The wise virgins represent true believers in Christ. The foolish virgins represent unbelievers. They may be church members — as we see in the parable, they are waiting alongside the wise virgins — but they are not saved.

Robert Deffinbaugh writes says, “The difference between the five wise virgins and the five foolish virgins is salvation. These five foolish virgins were not once saved, but then ‘ran out’” of salvation. They were lost, and never had it. They never had oil. They were just empty lamps. They looked useful, they seemed to give promise of light, but they never produced it.”

Jesus presses upon His listeners the importance of personal responsibility when it comes to our preparedness for His return. When He returns, there will be no time to get saved; there will be no time to run to the marketplace and buy oil. Some will go to meet the bridegroom, while others will be left behind. Jesus’ return, for many, will sadly be a point of no return. The fate of the foolish virgins ought to challenge us to examine our own faith, to ensure that we are truly saved and not just religious vessels putting on the appearance of salvation. Is Christ alive inside of us? Are we filled with the Holy Spirit? Do we have oil in our lamps? Are we ready for that great day?

Will Thompson wrote:

There’s a great day coming,
A great day coming,
There’s a great day coming by and by;
When the saints and the sinners shall be parted right and left,
Are you ready for that day to come?

There’s a bright day coming,
A bright day coming,
There’s a bright day coming by and by;
But its brightness comes only to them that love the Lord,
Are you ready for that day to come?

There’s a sad day coming,
A sad day coming,
There’s a sad day coming by and by;
When the sinner shall hear his doom, “Depart, I know ye not,”
Are you ready for that day to come?

Now, if you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, I urge you to trust in Him because He is coming again and you do not want to be left behind. Here is how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and the consequences of sin.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

God loves you. We love you. And may God bless you.

The Tragedy of Not Being Ready, Part 2

Charles Spurgeon said, “I do not know any more terrible words than those, ‘Our lamps are gone out.’ We once rejoiced in our lamps; we knew we had a bright future. But, it is an awful thing to find the lamp of Christianity burning low, one’s hope of heaven going out, like the snuff of a candle.”

In this parable, Jesus tells a tragic story of five foolish virgins who were not ready for a wedding and the bridegroom’s arrival. In the same parable, He tells the wonderful story of five wise virgins who were indeed ready for the wedding and the bridegroom’s arrival. The question for us is whether our story, our eventual history, will be one of tragedy, or the wonderful story of being ready for our bridegroom, Jesus Christ, and being united with Him at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in Heaven.

To understand this parable and its meaning for us today, we must think of the marriage process from the perspective of those who first heard Jesus’ story. Dr. Warren Wiersbe explains, “An oriental wedding had three stages: first, the legal marriage arranged by the parents of the bridegroom and bride; second, held about a year later, the ceremony in which the bridegroom, accompanied by his friends, would go from his home to the bride’s home and claim her as his own; and third, the marriage feast held at the bridegroom’s home. As the year drew to a close, all the participants in the ceremony were to be on high alert because only the father of the groom could make the official announcement to commence the ceremony. This call to preparedness was especially important for the wedding party.”

Another especially important point is found in the church being allegorized as virgins. The Greek word translated as “virgins” means “a marriageable maiden who has never had sexual intercourse with a man”; it is also a person “who has abstained from all uncleanness, whoredom, and idolatry, and so has kept his chastity.” The significance of this is that, it is not enough for us to merely anticipate Christ’s return; we must also live in a manner worthy of Christ’s return.

In the marriage traditions of the ancient near east, once a man and a woman were betrothed to each other (what we would call “engagement”), the man would set out to build or prepare a house where he would live with his new wife. Sometimes, this would take weeks or months. Every night of the betrothal period, the woman would light a candle and put it in her window. The man would go by the house at night to see if the candle was there. A burning candle meant that the bride was keeping herself pure and had not given herself to another man.

The question for us saints is: Are we keeping our candle burning? Jesus, like the bridegroom in His parable, has gone to prepare a place for us. Can we be considered virgins prepared for His second coming? Or have we given our hearts to worldly pursuits, to idolatrous worship of some other person, philosophy, or material gain? How devastating it would be for us if the Lord were to come and our candles not be burning. Like the foolish virgins, there will be no recourse. The most important thing we can do is to keep our candles burning as we await the Lord’s return.

Barney Warren wrote:

Let your light so shine that the world may see
How to come to Christ who will set them free;
Let its rays gleam bright when the darkness falls,
Till each sinful soul for the Savior calls.

Let your light so shine every day and hour,
That the truth be clothed with divinest pow’r;
Let it brightly shine and promote God’s cause,
To exalt His name and His holy laws.

Now, if you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, I urge you to trust in Him because He is coming again and you do not want to be left behind. Here is how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and the consequences of sin.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life.

Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven.

Are You Ready to Meet the Bridegroom? Part 1

By way of introduction, Dr. Warren Wiersbe said, “A wedding in that day had two parts. First, the bridegroom and his friends would go from his house to claim the bride from her parents. Then the bride and groom would return to the groom’s house for the marriage feast. The suggestion here is that the groom has already claimed his bride and is now on his way back home. However, we must not press the image of the church as a bride too far, because much of this truth was not revealed until the ministry of Paul. The church has known for 2,000 years that Jesus is coming again, and yet many believers have become lethargic and drowsy. They are no longer excited about the soon-coming of the Lord. As a result, there is little effective witness given that the Lord is returning. The oil for burning reminds us of the special oil used in the tabernacle services. Oil is usually a symbol of the Spirit of God, but I wonder if this particular oil is not also a symbol of the Word of God. The church should be “holding forth the word of life” in this dark and wicked world. We need to keep the word of His patience and keep witnessing of the return of Jesus Christ.”

Regarding the Parable of the Wise & Foolish Virgins, Dr. John Walvoord writes: “The familiar illustration of the ten virgins is a further effort by Christ to drive home the necessity of watchfulness and preparation for His second coming. MacArthur states: ‘The parable of the ten virgins accentuates the incalculable importance of being spiritually prepared to meet Christ when He returns to earth, because after He appears, unbelievers who are then alive will have no further chance for salvation.’ Weber adds that the parable ’emphasizes the long delay before [Christ’s] return as well as the unexpectedness when he does return.’

“An oriental wedding had three stages: first, the legal marriage arranged by the parents of the bridegroom and bride; second, held about a year later, the ceremony in which the bridegroom, accompanied by his friends, would go from his home to the bride’s home and claim her as his own; and third, the marriage feast held at the bridegroom’s home. As the year drew to a close, all the participants in the ceremony were to be on high alert because only the father of the groom could make the official announcement to commence the ceremony. This call to preparedness was especially important for the wedding party.”

Another especially important point is found in the church being allegorized as virgins. The Greek word translated as “virgins” means “a marriageable maiden who has never had sexual intercourse with a man”; it is also a woman “who has abstained from all uncleanness, whoredom, and idolatry, and so has kept her chastity.” The significance of this is that, it is not enough for us to merely anticipate Christ’s return; we must also live in a manner worthy of Christ’s return.

Sometimes, this would take weeks or months. Every night of the betrothal period, the woman would light a candle and put it in her window. The man would go by the house at night to see if the candle was there. A burning candle meant that the bride-to-be was keeping herself pure and had not given herself to another man.

The question for us is: Are we keeping our candle burning? Can we be considered virgins prepared for the bridegroom’s coming? Or have we, in His absence, given our hearts to worldly pursuits, to idolatrous worship of some other person, philosophy, or material gain? How devastating it would be if the Lord were to come and our candle not be burning. Don’t wait for the Lord to come. Let your light shine now.

Barney Warren wrote:

Let your light so shine that the world may see
How to come to Christ who will set them free;
Let its rays gleam bright when the darkness falls,
Till each sinful soul for the Savior calls.

Let your light so shine every day and hour,

Keeping the House Till the Lord Comes, Part 7 (Second Coming Chapel)

TEXT: Matthew 24:45-51

45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

— PRAYER —

Keeping the House Till the Lord Comes, Part 7

In our last message, we talked about the reward that Jesus promises for those who are faithful and wise servants found doing their duty as Christians when He returns (or when they die and go to be with Him in Heaven). Such a servant is blessed, and will be given joyous responsibility in the New Heaven and New Earth. But what happens to the “evil servants,” the ones who are not faithful and wise. Jesus describes the evil servant as one who says in his heart, “My lord delayeth his coming.” So, he “begins to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken.” Basically, he begins to live like a sinner even though he professes to be a follower of Christ. He thinks the Lord is not coming back anytime soon so he can get away with his behavior.

Now most commentators believe that the evil servant does not represent a true believer in Christ; rather, it is an unsaved person who is in the church — someone who is not truly saved. Their position is that no true Christian would act callously toward Jesus’ second coming and engage in blatant sinful behavior. John MacArthur writes, “Unbelievers, represented by the evil slave, will also be held responsible for what they do with their stewardship from God. During the end time, some unbelievers will remain openly sinful and rebellious against God, caring nothing for His truth or His mercy. Others will be aware of their lost condition and of their need of a Savior but will put off believing, thinking they will have time after fulfilling their own selfish interests before He comes in judgment. They will say by their lives, if not by their words, ‘My master is not coming for a long time.'”

What happens to the evil servant? Jesus says, “The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” The hypocrite is one who is a pretender; the evil servant only pretends to be a Christian; and since he has rejected Christ, he will end up in hell with all the other Christ-rejectors, church attendance notwithstanding.

Although the actions of the evil servant in this passage are the actions of one who is not saved, there are ways that the truly saved live in neglect of the promise of Jesus’ return. If we truly believed Jesus was coming tomorrow, most of us would change something about the way we are living today. Honestly ask yourself, what would you do differently right now if you knew Jesus would knock on your door tomorrow at 9 AM. Many of us would confess and turn away from our sins, pray more, read the Bible more, and tell more people about Jesus. We would treat others better, go out of our way to help those in need, and stand up against the evil of others. By the power of the Holy Spirit, let’s change these things in our lives today and every day until Jesus’ returns.

One poet wrote:

When we live with expectancy,
Awaiting Christ’s return,
Our diligent obedience
Becomes our main concern

Now, if you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, I urge you to trust in Him because He is coming again and you do not want to be left behind. Here is how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and the consequences of sin.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him.

Keeping the House Till the Lord Comes, Part 6 (Second Coming Chapel)


Today, I was reading an article titled the “10 Most Influential Jews in History.” The article states that, “The Jewish people have a long and colorful history. They are the source of some of the greatest thinking in history, both religious and scientific.” According to the article, the 10 most influential Jews are:

#10 – David Ben-Gurion, the first prime minister of the modern Jewish state of Israel.

#9 – Niels Bohr, the Nobel-prize winning physicist who made great contributions to the understanding of atomic structure and quantum mechanics.

#8 – Gustav Mahler, one of the most important late-romantic composers and conductors.

#7 – Baruch de Spinoza, a 17th-century philosopher who laid the groundwork for the 18th century Enlightenment.

#6 – Sigmund Freud, the psychiatrist who founded the psychoanalytic school of psychology.

#5 – Maimonides, the preeminent medieval Jewish philosopher whose ideas also influenced the non-Jewish world.

#4 – Albert Einstein, the Nobel Prize-winning theoretical physicist, best known for his theory of relativity.

#3 – Abraham, the father of the world’s three great religions, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, and the founding patriarch of Israel, God’s chosen people.

#2 – Moses, the Hebrew religious leader, lawgiver, prophet, and military leader, who led the Hebrews out of Egypt and wrote the Torah.

#1 – Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who founded the Christian faith which revolutionized the then-known world shaped Europe and much of the world as a consequence.

Today, I want you to hear from the most important Jew in all of history, Jesus Christ.

TEXT: Matthew 24:45-51

45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Keeping the House Till the Lord Comes, Part 6

Robert Moffatt said, “We shall have all eternity in which to celebrate our victories, but we have only one short hour before the sunset in which to win them.”

Every believer alive today is a keeper, a steward, of those resources that the Lord has entrusted to their care and of the people whom the Lord has placed under their influence. In our last message, we saw how the Lord is seeking faithful and wise servants. He asked the question, “Who then is a faithful and wise servant?” Who will consistently carry out his or her duties pertaining to the Lord’s house? Let’s say, today, that you are a faithful and wise servant whom the Lord can depend on. Jesus says, “Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.”

Jesus’ return will be sudden — even to believers. When He returns to rapture those saints who are living, He will be taking note of those He finds “so doing” — that is, those who are praying, reading the Bible, telling others about Jesus, and living in a Christ-like manner — those who are doing what they have been commanded to do as believers. Now, of course, many Christians have died before the rapture. But death, in itself, is similar to the Rapture in that, as soon as we breathe our last here on earth, we are with the Lord in Heaven. Death, for many, comes suddenly. It comes when they have no reason to expect it. When Death comes knocking at your door, what will you be doing? The instant before you go to meet your Maker, will you be found “so doing”? We all have an incentive to be “so doing” — whether we meet the Lord in the air through the Rapture or whether we meet the Lord through the doorway of Death.

What happens to those who are found “so doing”? Jesus declares that they are “blessed.” The Greek word translated as “blessed” means: “happy, fortunate, or well off.” Beyond being blessed, Jesus says, “Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.” In the New Heaven and the New Earth, every faithful saint will be rewarded with responsibility over some aspect of the remade world. William Hendricksen writes in his commentary, ‘Jesus Himself at His glorious coming shall bestow upon all His faithful ones a high degree of glory and honor. Christ’s promise also implies the assignment of certain specific tasks in the life hereafter, each task a matter of pure delight and satisfaction, and each in harmony with the individuality of the person for whom it is marked out.’

Our work as believers on earth comes with a measure of pain, suffering, difficulty, and imperfection. However, if we are faithful down here, and found “so doing” when the Lord comes, He will reward us in that perfect world with work that is a pleasure to carry out.

Ira Sankey, the great songleader who accompanied D.L. Moody during many of his revival meetings, wrote:

Rejoice! Rejoice! our King is coming!
And the time will not be long,
Until we hail the radiant dawning,
And lift up the glad new song.

With joy we wait our King’s returning
From His heavenly mansions fair;
And with ten thousand saints appearing
We shall meet Him in the air.

Oh, may we never weary, watching,
Never lay our armor down
Until He come, and with rejoicing
Give to each the promised crown.

Now, if you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, I urge you to trust in Him because He is coming again and you do not want to be left behind. Here is how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and the consequences of sin.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

Keeping the House Till the Lord Comes, Part 5

Oswald Chambers said, “The only way to wait for the Second Coming is to watch that you do what you should do, so that when Jesus comes is a matter of indifference. It is the attitude of a child, certain that God knows what He is doing.”

Over the past three message, we have talked about the importance of being faithful stewards of the Lord’s house and what that entails for us personally, for our families, and for the body of Christ. Following His exhortation to be like the “goodman of the house” who would have been prepared had he known a thief might break in, Jesus reveals that there are rewards for those who are faithful stewards and punishment for those who are unfaithful stewards.

Alfred Plummer wrote in his commentary, “This parable is more complete than the first. It gives the blessedness of the watchful servant as well as the dreadful fate of the one who dares to treat uncertainty about the time of the Master’s return as equivalent to certainty that He will not return soon. And it is more complete in another way as well. The goodman of the house could not be certain that the thief would come at all; he had to be on his guard against an attack that was only probable. However, the servant of the Lord is certain that the Master will return; the only doubt is as to the time. That is the case with the Christian.”

This second parable of Jesus begins with a question: “Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?” In some way, our Lord has made each of us a “ruler” over some aspect of His house. We each have a sphere of influence that He will hold us accountable for, some area that we are to supply with spiritual “meat” just as a men and women work to supply physical food for those in their houses. Jesus is not asking if there are any servants whom He has given rulership to. He is asking if there are any “faithful and wise” servants.

We are automatically servants and rulers as followers of Christ. Jesus’ question implies that it is our responsibility to be “faithful and wise.” The Greek word translated as “faithful” means “persons who show themselves trustworthy in the transaction of business, the execution of commands, or the discharge of official duties.” It also means “one who can be relied on.” A question we must ask ourselves is, “Can the Lord rely on me?”

The Greek word translated as “wise” means “intelligent, prudent, and mindful of one’s interests.” A wise person is “thoughtful, sagacious, discreet, and has a cautious character.” We must be “wise as serpents and harmless as doves” in this treacherous, twisted, and tumultuous world. There are many who say they are servants of the Lord. But the Lord is looking for those who will faithfully keep His house and use wisdom in their dealings.

Beatrice Bixler wrote:

The Christ I love is coming soon,
It may be morning, night, or noon;
My lamps are lit, I’ll watch and pray;
It may be tomorrow, but it could be today.

Now, if you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, I urge you to trust in Him because He is coming again and you do not want to be left behind. Here is how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and the consequences of sin.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him.

Keeping the House Till the Lord Comes, Part 2 (Second Coming Chapel)


TEXT: Matthew 24:36-44

36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left..

42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

Keeping the House Till the Lord Comes, Part 2

John MacArthur said, “The only way to avoid spiritual loss is to be ready at all times for Christ’s return.”

Using the metaphor of a thief breaking into a house, Jesus describes His Second Coming as shocking, startling, and stunning because many will not be prepared. However, Jesus does not want us to resign ourselves to unpreparedness. He wants us to be ready. He wants us to be like the “goodman” in his parable who, if he had known the thief was coming, “would have watched, and would not have allowed his house to be broken into.”

Jesus wants us to keep the house until His return. He wants us to keep guard, or keep watch, over all that has been entrusted to us spiritually speaking. On last week, we highlighted three “houses” that the Lord wants us to stand guard over — the house of our own bodies, the house of our families, and the Lord’s house, the Church.

How are we to keep the house of our bodies till the Lord comes? First Corinthians 6:19 says, “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” Not only are our bodies the temple of the Holy Spirit, but we often speak of Jesus living inside of us as well. Just as you would not want to offend a guest whom you have invited into your home, you ought not to want to offend the One who has been invited to reside in the house of your body.

We offend and grieve Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit when we engage in physical sin — using the body that God has given us, the body in which He resides, to steal, cheat, lie, commit adultery, commit homosexuality engage in fornication. Our bodies don’t belong to us; they belong to God. And to misuse them is an affront to Him. However, Jesus is equally (or even more so) concerned about our thought life and where our hearts, minds, and spirits continually reside. We keep watch over the house of our hearts and minds by submitting our thought life to Jesus Christ. Second Corinthians 10:5 says, we ought to “cast down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” This is something that we must choose to do. We must choose to meditate on the Word of God, positive deeds, and the Second Coming of Christ.

When we keep watch over our bodies, our minds, and our hearts that we might not sin against the Lord, we remain ready for the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Charles Tillman wrote:

Ready to speak, ready to warn,
Ready over souls to yearn,
Ready in life, ready in death,
Ready for His return.

Ready to go, ready to stay,
Ready my place to fill,
Ready for service, lowly or great,
Ready to do His will.

Now, if you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, I urge you to trust in Him because He is coming again and you do not want to be left behind. Here is how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and the consequences of sin.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
