I Am He Who Is Ready
(Mt25:1-13)

God foresees and plans.
Before eternity He established His purpose (Eph3:11) and
Lets those who are prepared according to His plan enter His prepared place.

Faith is believing Him and
The life of this faith is about always being ready in order to enter the wedding feast He prepared, as even the head of the state, the queen etc all must be prepared through tests and confirmation.

The Bible illustrates the following.
The purpose of God: making the Son the Heir of all, destroying the devil and saving men;
The dispensation of God: the creation of the spiritual world — the corruption of angels/ the origin of sin —
the creation of Hades — Adam’s sin — the judgment by a deluge — the exodus —
the Son of God (His appearance — death — resurrection — return) — the end of the world; and
The providence of God: the process of God seeking those who are ready through tests — such as
Noah and his family who built the ark and were saved (Ge6:13-21, 7:6) and
Abraham who left his country and gave his only son as a burnt offering etc (Ge12:1-2, 22:1-14).


While through Moses the Israelites left Egypt after four generations, 430 years (Ge15:13), which was
According to the timetable of God (Ex2:23-25; Ac7:30),
All those who disregarded God wandered in the desert for 40 years and died as
They were not ready to enter the promised land (Nu14:1-33).

The sanctuary where the name Jehovah was reminded them of this and
The prophets were those who prepared the way of the Lord (Mt3:3; Mk1:2-3).
As such, it was prophesied that according to God’s appointed time
The end would not delay but surely come (Hab2:3).

Yeshua said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days” (Jn2:19), because

Through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body,
He would not in the name Jehovah but in the Father’s name Yeshua
Prepare a place in not Canaan but the Father’s house (Jn14:1-2)
For not only Israel but all peoples (Lk2:30-31) — that is,
The wedding feast, the height of happiness (Mt22:8).

While the wedding feast was ready
The Jews who disregarded it were not worthy and
The gentiles of whom many were invited but only a few were chosen for
They did not prepare a wedding garment (Mt22:1-14).

For He knew His time was near Yeshua went to Jerusalem (Lk13:31-32) and He was arrested
But as He died, He said, “It is finished” (Jn19:30), declaring that He:
1) Laid down His life according to the Father’s will from before the creation (Jn10:18; He1:2);
2) Judged the devil, for an angel can never be an heir (IS14:12-15; He1:14); and
3) According to the plan before the creation redeemed all mankind (Eph1:4, 7).

Despite the fact that through the resurrection and the ascension of Yeshua Christ
God’s dispensation for the Son was completed,
The Holy Spirit came for there still remains the day when
Those who have become children of God on earth must enter the Father’s house.

The Christian is he who
Prepares to enter the wedding feast in the air when the Lord returns.
Therefore he always stays awake and keeps his garments on (Mt24:42; Rev16:15),
Living a surpassing life that is set apart from the world (1Co7:29-31),
Putting effort to save souls (1Ti4:1-2),
Laying up his treasure in heaven (Mt6:20; Jas5:3) for
He sees the signs of the end times according to the word of His prophecy (Mt24:1-14, 32) and
Keenly realizes that the time is near (Rev1:3, 22:16).

O Lord,
For what are you still waiting?
What more signs do we need?
Let us all become those who are ready.
Amen, Lord Yeshua come!
