A curious cliche for a title! I sat down tonite, setting the Lord as preeminent over my time of
study in my bible. I asked him what He wanted me to look at. Do everything unto the Lord!
And so, I asked, and this is what He said:
Matthew 25: Five wise virgins, Five foolish virgins. The lesson of this parable is to be prepared
for waiting, and to gather extra oil at opportune times. Have that oil with you. Five virgins
received what was intended for Ten. Five got them Ten.
Five talents, used properly, obtained five more for the wise steward. Five got him ten.
Next, the Lord carried me along to Zechariah 6. The Lord showed me something new here.
Zechariah had ten visions, which are described from 1:7 through 6:15. The fifth vision is of
a filthy high priest named Joshua. He represents you and me, the servants of the Lord. The
Lord took him and gave the command: "take away the filty garments from him". A charge
is given to this servant: "If you wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then
thou shalt judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk
among these that stand by.
Did five get ten for Joshua? You bet! Look what the tenth vision reveals about his future.
"Then take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them upon the head of Joshua, the
son of Josedech, the high priest.....And they that are far off shall come and build in the
temple of the Lord, and ye shall know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me unto you. And this
shall come to pass, if ye will diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God."
Finally, the Lord led me and spoke to me, that he wanted me to look at John 4, so I complied.
Now, I had no idea what this scripture might have in common with the others. Oh, what
another revelation! Five will get you ten that the Samaritan woman got amply blessed.
Jesus read her mail, displaying prophetic knowledge that she had five husbands. She did
not now have a husband. She had five, but in effect, had nothing, until her faith was given
words in verse 29: "Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the
Christ?" Jesus had clearly told her that he was the Christ, the Messiah, and she had believed
in her heart, and now confessed with her mouth, that He was the Christ.
Had she not now been married to a husband better than any ten earthly husbands. Yes,
five definitely got her much more than ten.
Finally, the Lord closed with this. The harvest fields are white unto harvest. "My meat is
to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. Say not ye, There are yet four
months, and then cometh harvest? Behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on
the fields; for they are white already to harvest. And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and
gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice
The lesson here? The harvest is ready, at an unusual time. Don't look at the clock, or the
calendar, or try to set a date for it. Lift up your eyes and look. The fields are white. They
are ready. Let's get to work, for the time is short.
