The Wise Virgins Were Prepared Because They Believed

As Scripture presents promise after promise, fulfillment after fulfillment, glory after glory, the Christian rejoices, delights, and takes strength from the Word of the Lord concerning the one who came to Earth and the one who is coming again.

Matthew 25:1-2 NKJV

When God called Moses to meet with Him on Mt. Sinai, He told Moses to bring Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and 70 elders. They went up, saw the Lord, and lived.
