Sermon Foolish Virgins Matthew 25:1-12

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 1slumbered and slept.
1 1st Thess 5:6

6

And at midnight there was a 1cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
1 Matt 24:31, 1st Thess 4:16

7

Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their 1lamps.
1 Luke 12:35

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 1shut.
1 Luke 13:25

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

1Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
1 Matt 24:42, Mark 13:33, Luke 21:36, 1st Cor 16:13

14

For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a 1far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.

15

And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man 1according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.
1 Rom 12:6, 1st Cor 12:7

16

Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the 1same, and made them other five talents.
1 1st Pet 4:10

17

And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.

18

But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and 1hid his lord's money.
1 Phil 2:21

19

After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.

20

And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.

21

His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee 1ruler over many things: enter thou into the 2joy of thy lord.

22

He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.
Sermon By C H Spurgeon

23

His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

24

Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:
Our Daily Homily By F B Meyer
What is Your Talent

25

And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

26

His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:

27

Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.

28

Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

29

For unto every one that 1hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
1 John 15:2, 1st Cor 15:10, 2nd Cor 6:1

30

And 1cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
1 Matt 8:12, Matt 22:13, Matt 24:51, Luke 13:28, 2nd Pet 2:17, Jude 13

31

When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy 1angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
1 Dan 7:10, Zech 14:5, Matt 16:27, 2nd Thess 1:7 Jude 14

32

And 1before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall 2separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
1 Rom 14:10, 2nd Cor 5:10, Rev 20:12
2 Ezek 20:38, Ezek 34:17, Matt 13:49
J R Miller's Morning Thoughts

33

And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34

Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, 1inherit the kingdom 2prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
1 Rom 8:17, 1st Pet 1:4, 1st Pet 3:9, Rev 21:7
2 1st Cor 2:9, Heb 11:16

35

For I was an 1hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a 2stranger, and ye took me in:
1 Isa 58:7, Ezek 18:7, 2nd Tim 1:16, James 1:27
2 Heb 13:2, 3rd John 5

36

1Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in 2prison, and ye came unto me.
1 James 2:15
2 2nd Tim 1:16

37

Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

38

When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

39

Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

40

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have 1done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
1 Prov 14:31, Prov 19:17
Inasmuch
Unto Me

41

Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, 1Depart from me, ye cursed, into 2everlasting fire, 3prepared for the devil and his angels:
1 Psa 5:5, Psa 6:8, Matt 7:23
2 Matt 13:40

42

For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

43

I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

44

Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

45

Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, 1Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
1 Prov 17:5

And these shall go away into 1everlasting punishment: but the righteous into 2life eternal.
