5 characteristics of the foolish (crazy) ones that despises the Seal of Guarantee

  • When the Lord Jesus talks about the Parable of the Ten Virgins, we need to understand that all those women symbolize everyone who knows God, however, there was and there is a great difference between them: the Baptism with the Holy Spirit.

     “Then the kingdom of heaven will be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.  And five of them were wise, and five were foolish…” Matthew 25:1,2

     Sadly, there are many who know the Truth, are converted, but have acted like crazy in the spiritual sense, notice if you don’t have any of these 5 characteristics of a “crazy converted”:


     The five foolish virgins represent people who are even converted in the church, but who are not Baptized with the Holy Spirit, that is, they do not have the reserve oil, which is the Seal of Authenticity, which are the exclusive property of the Holy Spirit, as they are people who have no life with God.


     See what these foolish virgins asked of the wise: “Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out…” Matthew 25:8

     This proves that they knew that the prudent were different, had another level of knowledge and that they had what they didn’t have.  That is, these people know who is spiritual and who is not, but still they are lazy and negligent in doing, being and seeking more diligently what it takes to grow spiritually in their communion with God.


     This reserve oil also represents the person who is baptized with the Holy Spirit, and maintains their communion with God, regardless of others, the place or the situation they live.

     The negligent ones are dependent on the Pastor, the Bishop, the Assistant, the family member, the meeting.  And that is why their prayer, meditation, search and everything they do has to be collectively or through someone, as they do not cultivate a relationship with God individually, thus proving that they do not have “Reserve Oil”.


     It is interesting to see how the foolish virgins were self-seeking and negligent, because even though they had conditions and knew where they could buy it, they still asked the wise ones for their oil.  And the proof that this is true is that when the wise ones denied it and told them to go and buy it themselves, the foolish ones did not ask where it was or that they would  give them money, that is, they knew and had what was necessary to buy the oil, but they didn’t do it before, because they were selfish and materialist.

     These are the people who know where and what they have to do, surrender and sacrifice, but don’t want to do effort, such as humiliating themselves, letting go of people, things, customs, routine, traditions…, doing the Fast of Daniel, to ask God to give them the Holy Spirit, to really seek…, to get ready and go on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays and to the Disciples’ Meetings, thirsty for the Holy Spirit, they just keep stalling, procrastinating!


     Could it be that these people did not see, did they not hear the signs, the bad examples, the “sad-testimonies”?  Do they not realize that they are risking what is the most important, which is the Salvation of their own soul?

     They ignore the signs that the Rapture could happen at any moment, and that they could fall behind, and needlessly suffer Satan’s reign on earth, during the Great Tribulation that is about to come upon the world!

     Do they think they will receive the Holy Spirit without doing anything?  Or Accidentally?  What madness!

    “Afterward the other virgins (the foolish ones) came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’ “But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’”

    “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.”

    Matthew 25:11-13 

     What fear!  May these words awaken your faith and fear at this moment.

     Well, if you still don’t have the Reserve Oil – the Baptism with the Holy Spirit, there’s still time!  Seek Him with all your strength, humility, determination and sincerity above all!

     And even if you already have it, keep watching and never let the oil run out, nor the reserve to be low, so that you will be prepared, with your lamp [soul] lit, when the Bridegroom arrives!

     Hence why I always end our participation saying:

     See you at the UCKG or in the Clouds!
