Certainly there are wide variations in our interpretation of the sequence of end-time events. Nevertheless, we are all agreed that the kingdoms of this world shall one day become the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ and that He shall reign forever. (Rev 11:15) In Matthew 25, the marriage of the Lamb is brought into view, and the Lamb’s wife has “made herself ready.” The foolish virgins were NOT ready and the Lord said to them “I do not know you.”
How could the Lord not know the foolish virgins? Obviously, they had false conversions.
Just as the bride and the bridegroom will be joined, so too shall the those who have religion without Christ shall be judged. The woman in scripture is the personification not only of the true church, but also, the harlot. This parable is unique in that for the Lord to close the door on the ill prepared seems harsh. Yet, it must be that the 5 foolish virgins are symbolic of the apostate church, filled with believers who assume they are born again but they are not.
