'Carthusian Spirituality: The Writings Of Hugh Of Balma And Guigo De Ponte' [The Classics Of Western Spirituality]

"[1] Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
[2] And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
[3] They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
[4] But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
[5] While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
[6] And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
[7] Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
[8] And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
[9] But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
[10] And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
[11] Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
[12] But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
[13] Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh." Matthew 25:1-13

if we call on the name of Christ and believe in him, we will be saved

It is 12:57 PM Wednesday afternoon here where I live out my allotted days. It is a damp gray day. No positive evidence that we are in the last days of Spring 2019. We will soon be in the month of June and the farm fields are all pure mud. The farmers this years did not get any dry weather to plant their crops this Spring.

I got up this morning around 6 o'clock AM. I went to bed last night around 9 o'clock PM. When I got up this morning there was on our telephone answering machine a call from Carol. Last night she called me around 9:30 PM our time, but I was asleep when she called. I did wake up around 10 o'clock PM from a nightmare. In this nightmare someone had a thin strip of wire and was chasing me. This demon was going to strangle me with a thin strip of wire. Scary! It would be Hell to be forever in Hell being chased my demonic spirits wanting to kill your never dying soul.

So I got up this morning to see the world covered in fog. I made a fresh pot of coffee and messed with our main computer. I next wrote in my paper diary and read some more of my Reformation Commentary on Romans 1-8. After reading for awhile I filmed a video for my Youtube channel.

I called Carol this morning around 10 o'clock AM. Her time was 7 o'clock AM, she had been up since 5 o'clock AM. We talked for awhile and then went our separate ways for the time being.

I left the house late this morning to visit a thrift store and then get fast food at a near by Burger King. I found at this thrift store these three old used books to ADD to our family library-

'"I've Seen The Best Of It": Memoirs by Joseph Alsop with Adam Platt

'Pops: A Life of Louis Armstrong' by Terry Teachout

'Infinite Home' a novel by Kathleen Alcott

When I got home I ate food and now I am writing in my online diaries. My life keeps speeding by! I suppose to get a new book in the mail today. It is always nice to receive in the mail a new book. I love books!

"If, however, you should become converted to Christ the Son of God and believe that your sins have been expiated by his death and that the wrath of God has been placated toward you, the Judge's sentence concerning you will be pronounced not according to the severity of the law but according to the promise of the gospel" Johannes Brenz
