7. The Wisdom of the Wise
By John Thiel, Facing Last Day Perils Conference, Study 7, mp3
We have been realising the harvest of what has been sown and that is met in these last days. The end of this world has produced perils which come as a result of what has been sown. The seeds of dissension produced strife, confusion, and heartache. They produced a devouring of one another. This is what transpires in the last days, people doing this. In this time of harvest, in the end of the world, we are in need of being able to find our way through. The future studies will be the subtleties of Satan that are manifested in these last days and the bundling experience that is written of for the last days. As we go through these experiences as are written, we need wisdom to understand those subjects. We now recall the words of Daniel chapter 12 when Daniel stands in his lot just now. This is speaking about the total closing of the events of the end. There are a people standing there.
The Wisdom of the Wise Virgins

Proverbs 9:8 Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee. 9 Give [instruction] to a wise [man], and he will be yet wiser: teach a just [man], and he will increase in learning. 10 The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy [is] understanding.

Oil In Their Vessels
By John Thiel
The experience of Gods people just prior to the coming of Jesus has been given a parable. A parable we are familiar with. Dealing with the subject of his imminent coming of this period we read Matthew.
Matthew 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 24:43 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. 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
From that point Jesus begins to enlarge some detail of what he is trying to say. Then with this concept he continues with this parable. He is talking about that period of time when people need to watch and be careful because in an hour as you think not the Son of man cometh.
Matthew 25:1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 25:2 And five of them were wise, and five [were] foolish. 25:3 They that [were] foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 25:4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 25:5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 25:6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 25:7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 25:8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 25:9 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. 25:10 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. 25:11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 25:12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
