A Promise Remains a Promise Until it is Experienced

10 Nov

Theory isn’t the same as Experience 

In theory we can claim many promises, all of which can be true, yet not experienced, or appropriated in the Spirit and in Truth.

A promised meal is of no value until it is consumed, or eaten.

Mat 25:1 (1-13) Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins of such a nature as to have taken their torches and to have gone forth to meet the bridegroom. Now, five of them were without forethought or wisdom, and five were prudent, for those without forethought and wisdom, having taken their torches, did not take with themselves oil, but those who were prudent took oil in the receptacles with their torches. And while the bridegroom was delaying his coming, they all dropped off to sleep and went on slumbering. And at midnight there has come an outcry, Behold, the bridegroom. Be going forth to meet him. Then all those virgins arose and started to put their own torches in order. And those without forethought and wisdom said to those who were prudent, Give us at once some of your oil, because our torches are going out. And those who were prudent answered, saying, No, lest perchance there should not be by any means enough for us and you. Rather be going to those who sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they were going to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were prepared went in with him to the wedding, and the door was closed. And later there come also the rest of the virgins saying, Sir, Sir, open at once to us. And answering he said, Assuredly, I am saying to you, I do not know you. Be ever on the watch therefore, because you do not know the day, neither the hour.

The lesson from the parable of the 10 virgins is simple, until the call came from the Bridegroom, they were still virgins (unmarried). And the five wise virgins all entered the wedding feast together as a community, or corporate Bride.

Here is a promise from the Lord

“Be ever on the watch therefore, because you do not know the day, neither the hour.”
