But at midnight there was a shout, ”˜Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ “ (Matthew 25:6, NASB)

“It was the bridegroom’s tarrying that brought to light the state of the virgins. How can I be prepared for the Lord’s coming? … It is good to be prepared should He come now, but it is no less important to keep prepared, should He tarry. Can we wait and still be ready? … For consider this: if the bridegroom had come before midnight, all the virgins would have been wise! It was His delay which exposed their folly. May God preserve me from becoming foolish with the passing years! One thing only can insure me against the test of time: His Spirit’s fulness. Let me know but His constant filling and there will not lack oil in my lamp whtn that great midnight cry goes forth.”

(from A Table in the Wilderness by Watchman Nee, September 7th)
