Everyone should experience spiritual awakening at one stage of life, but being ready for it is another.
In two parables, the wise virgins filled up their lamps, ready for the bridegroom. While the foolish virgins were caught up unprepared.
In the second parable, signifying how people by their act miss the golden opportunity of spiritual awakening is the parable of the sower. A sower went out in the field to sow. Some fell on good ground, but the care and pleasures of the world stifle the growth of the seeds.
How many people are really ready today for spiritual awakening? Yet everybody's time will come because THE MASTER gives all the opportunity.
