The greater the depth the better the silage, on account of the pressure from above. If less than 24 feet in height the quality of silage will not be the best.

GOLDEN therefore for ye know neither the day nor the hour when the Son of Man cometh." Matt. 26:13. A parable is "an earthly story with a heavenly meaning." An analogy Is "a likeness." This Btory Is a parable. It Is to Illustrate the vigilant, expectant attitude of faith, Heb. II Tim.

4:8. Leaving temple, Jesus drew the. disciples' attention; to Ita buildings and predicted Its destruction. Proceeding to the Mount of Olives, his disciples ask him, "Tell us, when shall these things be? And what Bhall be the Bign of thy coming, and the end of the world?" In reply Jesus gave the disciplea his Olivet discourse and prophecies found in chap ters 24 and 25. To fully comprehend this parable we ought to review all of this teaching.

The discourse as a whole falls into these parts (1) deals with Israel as a nation; (2) deals with the church as being responsible for the king during the period between his two advents; and (3) deals with the Judgment of the nations when the Sou of Man comes in his glory. It will be seen then that this lesson comes la the second part and is oao of three parables concerning the responsibility of the church. Jesus ia the bridegroom, John 3:28, 29; Eph. II Cor. Rev.

21.9, and sets forth the love of Christ for tho church, Eph. 5:25, 28, 30-32. Two Classes. I. "While tho bridegroom tarried" vv.

1-5. The first and strongest idea of this section Is that he, Jesus, the bridegroom, is coming again. Among those who wait are two classes, the wise and the foolish, though both were right intentioned. The lamps symbolize Christian profession, Luke II Tim. 3:5, and tho oil that which 13 essential to givo us power whereby we maintain our profession Acts I John The foolish virgins were superficial and had not enough to maintain their professions.

The wise virgins had enough; oil; so also may the believer have the. abiding spirit of Christ's presence wherein to maintain his Christian profession. Waiting they all nodded (slumbered) and others evidently lay down (slept). The wise virgins could afford to rest a3 they had all things ady. If they had been awake, how ever, tney might have seen and ren dered aid to those who ere in tha sorry plight of not being ready.

Tho tarrying was a test of the faith and patience of both the wise and the foolish as both awaited the "fulness ef time" when he should appear. The Great Question. II. Behold the bridegroom cometh" vv. 6-13.

All are awakened by this. midnight cry. The hour was when he was least expected, and thes church of today needs to be awakened to a realizing genso of this truth. Both the wise and the foolish have to meet him, but the wise were the only ones whose lights, could shine and show the way into tho banqueting; room. They all outwardly appear alike even to the very point separation.

The church of God individually and collectively, has yet to sense the dagger to it and to others if its light for any reason, be not continuous. This; cry was a call to "meet him" and wa all need to ask ourselves, "are wa ready to met him?" The hour was too late to make needful preparation meet hin. In their emergency they turned to the five wise ones but tha wisdom of one cannot supply the deficiency or the foolishness of others (v. 9). There is no Scripture to support the teaching that one man's merit.

Is applicable to another except tie merit of the God-man Jesus as applied to sinful humanity. Hence tha wise sent their sistera to the original source of 'supply for oil, and aa they went "the bridegroom came." So will It be. with all who put off too long tftd ecuring of tho Holy Spirit la their lives. "They that were ready" went In, they that vre not ready when they CAma frilinri the rinni "cfnit Tn ot tend a marriage feast is highly esteemed everywhere, but It is priv ilege that Is worthy of careful prop- aration. Remember that Jesus ia here showing the attitude towantes himself of those who profess to bo-devoted to him during the period ot; his absence, and who expect his re-, turn as king.

That being so, we need, to remind orelves' of the laws ot th as he gave them. Jesua knows thoso that are, his-, John II Tim. 2119; I Cor. 8:3, but such are not who mnVn a mere outward 'profession of faith and lack tlia Abiding prespneo and power of, tie Holy Spirit Tho day of separation between the true and the false la purely coming, a time when tha $eaV genuine.

Thla word does not mean simply to look or to gaia but Vt keeg Awake, to be vigilant..
