The Identity Of The Ten Virgins - And The Two Resurrections Ahead

(Song 6:3)  The bride is especially attractive to the Bridegroom, and the bride knows she is His.

How Do We Smell?

His Name is as oil (perfume), poured forth on our heads; we smell good to Him!

Yahusha is His Name, and His bride knows Him. They are first-fruits, wise managers, and His treasured possession: NATSARIM.

Mt. 25:1-12:

“Then the reign of the shamayim shall be compared to 10 maidens who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.

And 5 of them were wise, and 5 foolish.

Those who were foolish, having taken their lamps, took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their jars with their lamps.

Now while the bridegroom took time, they all slumbered and slept.

And at midnight a cry was heard, ‘See, the bridegroom is coming, go out to meet him!’

Then all those maidens rose up and trimmed their lamps.

And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us of your oil, because our lamps are going out.’

But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, indeed, there would not be enough for us and you.

Instead, go to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’

And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast, and the door was shut. And later the other maidens also came, saying, ‘Master, Master, open up for us!’

But he answering, said, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’"

Now discover the distinction between the 5 wise and unwise virgins.

5 of them know their Husband, and He knows them.

They have a knowledge of the Truth, because they abide in His Word (Yn. 8:31, 32).

The others do not know the Name of their Husband, being unsealed.

Scripture begins and ends with a marriage relationship.

Throughout Scripture, the relationship of marriage is used to express the intimate companionship between Yahuah and His chosen ones.

Yahuah never stops pursuing His wife, and His broken heart over her impetuous behavior is reflected in every parable, and through every prophet.

  Revelation 14 describes a linchpin for all mankind. Babel falls for good, and a chosen 144,000 are sealed with the Name of Yahuah for protection from reapers (harvesters).

The bride receives the Name of the Husband, Yahuah, marking her as His property.

At Yahusha’s coming, they rise to meet Him. This is called the 1st resurrection.

Concurrent with His coming, reapers harvest the Earth by removing everyone unsealed,

throwing them into the great winepress of the wrath of Yahuah. 

The fruit (behavior) Yahusha is looking for in His wife is obedience.

The false messengers program their assemblies to avoid obedience.

Rev. 14:12 identifies the bride by her behavior.

The 2nd resurrection occurs 1000 years later.




We see the wife of the Lamb is referred to as: a bride, remnant, 144,000, wise managers, first-fruits,

a treasured possession, and 5 wise virgins (they are in Mashiak -1Th. 4:16).

  They are waiting for their Husband, and call on His Name (Yual 2, Acts 2).

The prophet YashaYahu (Isaiah) was inspired to record the announcement of the 5 wise virgins at His coming:

He shall swallow up death forever, and the Master Yahuah shall wipe

away tears from all faces, and take away the reproach of His people

from all the Earth. For Yahuah has spoken.

And it shall be said in that day, ‘See, this is our Alahim.

We have waited for Him, and He saves us.

This is Yahuah, we have waited for Him, let us be glad and rejoice in His deliverance.’” 25:8, 9

  The bride (wife) of Yahusha is going to a wedding supper, and the rest are going to a great winepress of the wrath of Yahuah. As we progress in our relationship with Him, He may select us to be in the first resurrection, and given a “higher calling”, as the bride (wise virgins, maidens). They are ready, and are the “first-fruits”.
At Yahusha’s return, those who are waiting for Him and holding to His testimony, and obeying the Commandments of Yahuah, will be first-fruits (see Rev. 12). They will go into the
Wedding Supper of the Lamb.



  Those in the 2nd resurrection will never be the bride, but rather friends of the bride (unwise virgins). They will have missed the Wedding Supper by 1000 years. Some will be born during the 1000-year reign, others will be those who lived before, but not of the higher calling. No one is “in heaven” except the One who descended (Yn. 3:13, Acts 2:34). At Yahusha’s coming Natsarim will rise to meet Him and reign for 1000 years here on the Earth with Him (If we are among the first-fruits). If not, we will be raised at the end of the 1000 years, and those whose names are found in the scroll of life will receive their reward of eternal life - still here on the Earth (not in another location called “heaven”.

2 Tim 4:4 tells us how myths will abound. The zodiac (zoo animals, constellations) were thought to rule over the affairs of men, and in the afterlife they would become deified and live among the mazzaroth (host of heaven). This is why we hear so much about “going to heaven.”

Tradition is religion, but the knowledge of the Truth is reality.

We know the Truth because we live in Yahusha’s Word, not traditions.



“Not being known doesn't stop the truth from being true.” - Richard Bach


“Truth is so rare that it is delightful to tell it.”  - Emily Dickinson


". . .the larger the crowd, the more probable that that which it praises is folly,

and the more improbable that it is truth; and the most improbable of all that it is any eternal truth."  - Soren Kierkegaard, Purity of Heart



The chosen ones possess the extra “oil.”

That is the knowledge of the Truth, the thing Stephen told the Sanhedrin the fathers had cast away.

(Acts 7:39, Titus 1:1, Heb. 10:26).



2Ti 3:1  But know this, that in the last days hard times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of self, lovers of money,

boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, thankless,

wrong-doers, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, haters of good,

betrayers, reckless, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Alahim,

having a form of reverence but denying its power. And turn away from these!

For among them are those who creep into households and captivate silly women

loaded down with sins, overcome by various lusts,

always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth. 2Ti 3:1-7 


The knowledge of the Truth is the extra oil. The indwelling of Yahusha's Spirit enlightens our minds.



Those chosen for the 1st resurrection are “in Mashiak”,

restricted to the followers of Yahusha, the NATSARIM (see Acts 5:32, 24:5, 1Thess. 4:16).

Some are dead, and some are living at the time of His return.

Not all Natsarim will be in this “higher calling”, but certainly all will be Natsarim.

They know “the Truth” (Yahusha, their Husband, and live in His Word (Yn. 8:32).



The 5 wise virgins are the first-fruits, the bride of Yahusha.

They are of the "higher calling", being in the first resurrection at Yahusha's coming. 

The 5 unwise enter into their reward 1000 years later at the second resurrection.

Wise managers (stewards) who teach (feed) the assembly (household) are those who are identified

as watching, waiting at the door, and are ready for the return of their Master.

This preparation shows they are of the higher calling, Yahusha’s possession.

This is fully explained at Luke 12.



The identification of the 5 wise virgins is easy to find in Scripture: Rev. 14:12;

“Here is the endurance of the set-apart ones, here are those guarding

the commands of Yahuah and the belief of (or in) Yahusha.”

New Covenant, Or Renewed Covenant?

The differentiation is determined by the object it is modifying.

If the object preexisted, it could be renewed; if it never existed, it would be new.

The word KADASH (H2319, chadash) may be used for either new or renewed, and the object and context help us determine the meaning.

YirmeYahu 31 and Hebrews 8 describe the renewed (KADASH) Covenant. The concept of this "renewed" Covenant concerns the marriage covenant between Yahuah (Husband) and his partner Yisharal (bride).

Replacement Theology has masked both the Covenant and the identity of the bride.


The body of Yahusha is made up of sheep and goats.

The 5 wise maidens are defenders or guardians of the Name and the Word of Yahuah (Ps 138:2).

Yahuah is sealing some of the population with His Name to distinguish between them

from those who refuse to listen to His Word.

Mt. 22:14: “For many are called, but few are chosen.”



By sealing us with His Name for deliverance, He separates between the sheep and the goats.

Both are clean, but only the sheep will be selected for the higher calling of the first resurrection, as His bride.

There are two scrolls (books):

the Scroll of Remembrance, and the Scroll of Life.



At Malaki chapter 3 we read about the coming of Yahusha, and how He will make a distinction between those who

serve Him, and those who do not serve Him. (see also Yual 2, YashaYahu 2).

His Name is involved in this distinction, and a special scroll is involved that records the names of

those who think upon His Name.

It’s called the Scroll of Remembrance:

Then shall those who fear Yahuah speak to one another, and Yahuah

listen and hear,  and a book (scroll) of remembrance is written before Him,

of those who fear Yahuah, and those who think upon His Name.

‘And they shall be Mine,’ said Yahuah Tsabaoth,

‘on the day that I prepare a treasured possession.

And I shall spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.

Then you shall again see the difference between the righteous and the wrong,

between one who serves Alahim and one who does not serve Him.” Mal 3:16-18


The goats are His flock also, and are Natsarim who will wait for the second resurrection at the end of the 1000-year Reign.

This is called the Great White Throne judgment.  Their names will appear in the Scroll of Life.



  The unwise are followers, but far too dirty and wrinkled to be ready at His coming.

They have not submitted themselves to His refining process, and are still polluted by the world’s traditions.

They do not possess the extra oil, the knowledge of the Truth.

The bride of Yahusha does not behave indecently, or compromise with the world’s filth.

She loves His Word, and His Name. She doesn't participate in things of darkness:

Halloween, bunnies & eggs at Ishtar time, trees & wreaths at the Solstice birth of the sun,

Sun-day, steeples (sun-pillars), kneeling before images, cruxes (symbol of the sun deity),

bells, Lent (weeping for Tammuz), zodiac/horoscopes, blessing and thanking Yahuah

while asking Him to bless unclean animal flesh He commanded us not to eat (such as ebola fruit bats),

celibacy, going after strange flesh, Replacement Theology, sacraments (which are not found in Scripture),

profaning the day Yahuah blessed (Heb. 4), or ignoring the redemptive shadows,

one of which foreshadows judgment day when the reapers (eagles, messengers) come to take out

the weeds from among the wheat (see Mt. 13:30). Where there is a dead one (corpse), the reapers or eagles will

be gathered (Mt. 24:28) at His coming.




  The last three unfulfilled redemptive shadows will involve the first resurrection (Yom Teruah, Yom Kafar), and the wedding feast (Sukkoth).

Sukkoth is the Wedding Feast in the New City.

  It will be the end of the weeds, beast system (Babel), and the false prophet. The very ones being misled with the idea of being “raptured” will in fact be “seized”, and will be taken from among the obedient ones for a different reason than they expect. They are not sealed in the Name.

Those who are waiting and guarding the Commandments of Yahuah and testimony of Yahusha will be ready for Yahusha's coming.

Yahuah’s Word is Truth, the Natsarim teach it:

YAHUAH’S TORAH   (instructions)

(1):  ‘I am Yahuah your Alahim who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, out of the house of bondage.

You have no other mighty ones against My face.


(2):  You do not make for yourself a carved image, any likeness of which is in the heavens above, or which is in the earth beneath, or which is in the waters under the earth, you do not bow down to them nor serve them.  For I, Yahuah your Alahim, am a jealous Al, visiting the crookedness of the fathers upon the children to the 3rd and 4th generations of those who hate Me, but showing kindness to thousands, to those who love Me and guard My commands.


(3):  You do not cast the Name of Yahuah your Alahim to ruin, for Yahuah does not leave him unpunished who casts His Name to ruin.


(4):  Guard the Shabath day, to set it apart.


(5):  Respect your father and your mother, as Yahuah your Alahim has commanded you, so that your days are prolonged, and so that it is well with you on the soil which Yahuah your Alahim is giving you.


(6):  You do not murder.


(7):  You do not break wedlock.


(8):  You do not steal.


(9):  You do not bear false witness against your neighbor.


(10): You do not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor do you desire your neighbor’s house, his field, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, his ox, nor his donkey, or whatever belongs to your neighbor.”
