"Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight a cry was heard: 'Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!' Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.' But the wise answered, saying, 'No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.' And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut. Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, 'Lord, Lord, open to us!' But he answered and said, 'Assuredly, I say to you, I do not…
"Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know." Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?" Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:1-6 NKJV).
I’ve learnt many things from my herd of sheep since starting a farming venture in 2013. I have had to spend a lot of time learning about all the intricacies of a sheep’s diet, health and breeding. Of all these, the aspect of breeding has been the most fascinating.
We are all familiar with real estate agents and the vast variety of estate agencies out there. Once you decide to sell your property and start with the process of advertising and marketing your home you will meet many different real estate agents and companies, all of them with different strategies of marketing your home.

His/her company logo will need to be visible because all the sales techniques and promises pertaining to that company and the promises made by that agent, lies within that company name.
Jesus Christ was a Son of GOD and because GOD is the FATHER of lights, Jesus was also a light as he represented his FATHER. Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures (James 1:16-18 NKJV).
John 17:22-24 (NKJV):
In the natural, I call my father's son my brother. Why? Because we were born of the same seed, the seed which came from our father. That makes us brethren. My cousin, on the other hand, is not called my brother for exactly the same reason. We were not born of the same seed.
Kyk, Ek gee aan julle die mag om op slange en skerpioene te trap, en oor al die krag van die vyand; en niks sal julle ooit skade doen nie (Luk 10:19 AOV).
Ek dink baie van ons sal saamstem dat as daar een vakansiebestemming is wat ‘n mens nie op moet uitmis nie, dit die Nasionale Krugerwildtuin is. Daar is min dinge so mooi soos verskillende dierespesies in hulle natuurlike habitat wat hulle ware natuur ten toon stel. Aan die anderkant sal mens heeltemal die teenoorgestelde ervaar wanneer jy na daardie selfde diere in die dieretuin sou gaan kyk – omdat hulle in 'n ander omgewing is.
