The joyful event the girl is dreaming about in Song of Songs 5:1-8 is the Spirit of Christ at the door of her heart. But she is not ready and makes excuses for not opening the door. Much like the church does today; churches and believers carelessly provoke Christ to withdraw. He knocks at the door but we pretend to be tired; we lack time, and excuse ourselves from the call. We let fear and anxiety defeats us. In Matthew 25:1-3, Jesus teaches with a similar incident in the parable of the ten virgins.
At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them.
Five of the virgins were not prepared for the bridegroom. This day with God, let us pray for help in being ready for Him at all times. Let us value the visits of Christ more highly and recognize when He is near.
