There is a bell ringing in the spirit, over the nations and over the people.
The bell is ringing for you! The bell signifies a shift in the true church – the people of His presence – and sounds a wake up and a call to readiness.
God is shifting His people from resigned defensiveness and lethargy to a position of spiritual alertness and action. It is time to take up the weapons of your warfare and the spiritual equipment that has been allotted to you and call on the name of the Lord. The Lord desires to bring many sons to glory (Hebrews 2:10) and His desire is to use you to do it.
The bell sounds for His bride to prepare herself – it is the time to get ready! Don’t look to the left or the right or to what your neighbour is doing. Look straight ahead and follow the call of the bell on your life and the leading of the Holy Spirit.
The bell is sounding for you!
Then the kingdom of heaven will be comparable to ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were prudent. For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, but the prudent took oil in flasks along with their lamps. Now while the bridegroom was delaying, they all got drowsy and began to sleep. But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. The foolish said to the prudent, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the prudent answered, ‘No, there will not be enough for us and you too; go instead to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.’ And while they were going away to make the purchase, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut. Later the other virgins also came, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open up for us.’ But he answered, ‘Truly I say to you, I do not know you.’ Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour.
