"Even so, recognize this much, if the homeowner had known before the hour that the thief would
come, he would have kept watch, and not allowed his house to get broken into. So also must
you be vigilant, for the Son of Man is coming at a time that you do not know. Also, look
to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcome by excess and drunkenness and
the concerns of this life, and that day sneak up on you without your being aware. For like
a trap it will ensnare all of those who live on earth. Who then is that trusty and sagacious
servant whom his lord will set over his household servants, that he might give them their food
when the season arrives? How lucky will that servant be when his lord comes and finds him
so doing. I tell you most assuredly, he will put him over all that He has. But should that
wicked servant say in his heart, ‘My master will be gone a long time,’ and starts beating
his fellow servants, and eating and drinking with the drunkards, that servant’s master
will come on a day that he’s not expecting, and at a time that he’s not aware, and hack
him to bits, assigning him his part with the hypocrites, where there will be wailing and
grinding of teeth. "So be alert, praying at all times that you
might be deemed worthy to escape all that will soon come to pass, and stand in the presence
of the Son of Man. Do not let down your guard; watch and pray, since you do not know when
that time will be. It is like a man who was going on a distant journey, who, at the time
he left his house, charged each of his servants with certain tasks, and commanded the porter
to keep watch. So remain vigilant, for you never know when the lord of the house might
come; at dusk, midnight, cock’s crow, or daybreak. Should he happen to come back on
a sudden, do not let him catch you sleeping. And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!
THE TEN VIRGINS (Matt 25:1 13; AcAn in P. Utrecht I p.14)
Mount of Olives "At that time, the kingdom of heaven will
be likened unto ten virgins who each took their lanterns and went to meet the bridegroom.
Five of them were foolish, and five of them were wise. Now the foolish ones, even though
they took their lamps, failed to take any olive oil with them; whereas the prudent ones
carried flasks along with their lamps. And as the bridegroom lingered, they nodded off,
and lay there sleeping. Then at midnight there came a shout, ‘Behold, the bridegroom is
coming! Go and meet him.’ Then those virgins all got up, and they each trimmed their own
lanterns. ‘Give us of your olive oil,’ said the foolish to the wise, ‘for our lamps
are burning out!’ But the wise ones said to them, ‘We fear that there will not be
enough for you and us both. You ought rather to go to those who sell and buy some oil for
yourselves.’ Now after they had gone away to purchase some, the bridegroom came. Those
who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast, and the door was then secured. After
a while, the other virgins came around pleading, ‘Lord, Lord, open up the door for us!’
But the bridegroom answered, ‘I tell you most assuredly that I never even knew you.’
So keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour. Oh virgins, it is not without
reason that you have guarded your chastity, nor was it in vain that you persisted in prayer
with your lamps burning until the voice came to you at midnight, saying, ‘Get up! Go
forth and meet the bridegroom.’ THE PARABLE OF THE TALENTS
(Matt 25:14 30) Mount of Olives
"Again, it will be like a man who was going on a trip, who summoned his servants, and
placed them over all that he owned. He gave one five talents; another, two; and still
another, one; according to what they each could do. Then the master went away. Not long
after that, the servant who had received the five went away and traded with them, earning
five more. The servant who had received the two likewise gained another two. But the servant
who received the one went off, dug into the ground, and hid away his master’s silver.
After some time the master of those servants returned and started to settle accounts with
them. And the one who received the five talents approached him and presented him with another
five, saying, ‘Master, you entrusted me with five talents. Behold, I have made you
five more talents!’ Then his master said to him, ‘Great work, you good and faithful
servant. I will put you over many things. Enter into your master’s joy.’ The servant
who received the two talents also approached his master and said, ‘Lord, you entrusted
me with two talents. See, I have made you two more talents!’ His master replied, ‘Well
done, you good and faithful servant! You have shown that you can be trusted with a few talents,
so I will put you over many things. Enter into your master’s joy!’ And the servant
who had received the one came up to him and explained, ‘Master, knowing that you are
a difficult man, reaping where you never sowed and gathering where you never scattered, I
feared you. I went out and hid your talent in the ground. There, now you have what is
your own!’ His master responded, ‘You worthless and indolent servant! Knowing that
I reap where I did not sow, and gather where I did not scatter, you ought to have deposited
my silver with the money brokers. That way, by the time that I got back, I would have
gotten what was mine along with some interest. So confiscate the one he has and give it to
the one with ten.’ For to everyone who has, it will be given, and he will have it in abundance.
But from one who has nothing, even what he does have will be taken away from him. ‘Now
toss that no account servant into the darkness without, where there will be weeping and grinding
of teeth.’" THE COMING OF THE MESSIAH
(Matt 25:31-46; Rev 2:26 27/19:6 8/20:4 6; 1Thess 4:16 17; 2Pet 3:8-10a,13; Barnabas
15:3-7) Mount of Olives
"And the Son of Man will sit upon his glorious throne when he comes in all his glory, and
all of his angels with him." (And I, [John,] heard what sounded like the noise of a great
crowd, and the crashing of many waters, along with the violent clapping of thunder, saying,
"Hallelujah, for our Lord God Almighty has taken the throne! Let us rejoice and shout
in triumph! Give Him the glory, for the marriage of the lamb has come and his betrothed has
readied herself. She has been allowed to adorn herself in beautiful linen, glistening and
white." (The fine linen, you see, is the righteousness of the saints.) "And to the one who overcomes
and keeps my words up to the end, will I give power over all the nations, and he will rule
them with an iron scepter." And they were restored to life and assumed their thrones
with the Messiah for a thousand years. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven
with a shout and the voice of the archangel and the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ
will rise up first. Then we who are alive and have been spared will be caught up with
them to the clouds, to meet the Lord up in the air. And in this way we will be with the
Lord forever. Those who remained in death did not come back to life again until the
end of the millennium. This is the first resurrection. How blessed and holy is the one who has a
part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over these. Instead they
are to be priests of God and of the Messiah, and they will reign alongside him for the
thousand years. Even so, my beloved, do not let this one thing escape you; that one day
with the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years are as a day. It is not the
case that the Lord is slow to carry out his promise. It is only that he is being patient;
for it is against his nature that anyone should be lost, but that all should have a change
of heart. This is the Sabbath that Moses speaks of at the creation when he says, "For six
days, God labored with the works of His hands, and He finished them on the seventh. On that
day the Lord rested, and kept it holy." Now children, do not miss what he’s saying here:
"He completed them in six days," for what he means is this: That the Lord will bring
everything to pass after six thousand years. With Him, you see, a "day" means a thousand
years. He bears me out Himself on this when he says, "Behold, the Lord’s day will be
as a thousand years." Thus, my children, we may conclude that in six days--in six thousand
years, that is--everything will be completed. And where he says, "He rested on the seventh
day," he is saying: At the time that His Son comes, he will bring an end to the days of
the Lawless One, call judgment down upon the wicked, then he will change the sun, the moon,
and the stars. After that, on the seventh day, His true rest will begin at last. He
goes on to explain, "Clean of hand and pure of heart, you will keep it holy." Now if you
can say to me that anyone these days is pure enough in heart to be keeping it holy--the
day which God Himself has blessed--then I must say that we have been deceived! If, however,
when that day does come someone does manage to keep it holy; by entering into that true
rest--that which has been opened to us and is received through the fulfillment of that
promise, when lawlessness really is no more and all things really have been made new by
the Lord--then we truly will be able to keep it holy, for we will have ourselves been made
holy. Nevertheless, the Lord’s day will come like a thief in the night.)
