"There was a shout, an invitation to come and have an encounter with Him. It is then that the foolish young women realized that they were running out of Oil (the only Source for the authentic presence and power of the Holy Spirit). The foolish maidens asked the wise ones to share some Oil with them, and they uttered two of the most powerful yet disturbing words a Christian could ever hear, "We can't!" Their reason: "We don't have enough to go around, and if we share our Oil, we too will run out, and running out of Oil is not an option. It's too precious and costly and determines our eternal destination!" Running out of Oil is not an option! So the unwise women went to the store to buy oil. We must make mention that the store may have some oil, but it is not The Oil. It's as if the ladies had been forced to settle for a counterfeit. Perhaps this strange or wrong oil is why the Bridegroom responded, "I don't know you!"
