The Parable of the Ten Virgins

This sure enough sounds like the last minute pleadings of the 5 foolish virgins. Do you need any more scripture than that?

Try these:

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." Matthew 25:1-13


"These things are the things that ye must look for; and, speaking after the manner of the Lord, they are now nigh at hand, and in a time to come, even in the day of the coming of the Son of Man. And until that hour there will be foolish virgins among the wise; and at that hour cometh an entire separation of the righteous and the wicked; and in that day will I send mine angels to pluck out the wicked and cast them into unquenchable fire." D&C 63: 53-54

As for me, I am preparing to take care of my family and as many others as I am able to help. Yet, I am responsible to care for my family, to teach them the gospel, to warn my neighbors to prepare, and I am responsible for those who I fail to warn. In principle, I have warned many; yet I am responsible for many who I have not warned.

Many will gather with the Saints, who we have not taught, we have not warned. We will be responsible to feed them.

I intend to feed them and make use of their labor to feed and help others. We will need their help and they will need ours. It is a fair trade.
