“On this point of deferring obedience to the gospel, we might with profit consider the Savior’s parable of the ten virgins. I do not remember any provision being made in that parable for the five foolish virgins to enter into the marriage at a later time. I do remember, however, that after the door was shut they, having in the meantime filled their lamps with oil, came saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us,’ and that His answer was, ‘Verily I say unto you, I know you not’ (see Matt. 25:1–13).
“In 1831 the Lord continued with the lesson He had in mind to teach with this parable. Speaking to the Prophet Joseph, He specified some of the blessings to be received by the five wise virgins. Said He:
“‘And at that day, when I shall come in my glory, shall the parable be fulfilled which I spake concerning the ten virgins.
“‘For they that are wise and have received the truth, and have taken the Holy Spirit for their guide, and have not been deceived—verily I say unto you, they shall not be hewn down and cast into the fire, but shall abide the day.
“‘And the earth shall be given unto them for an inheritance; and they shall multiply and wax strong, and their children shall grow up without sin unto salvation.
“‘For the Lord shall be in their midst, and his glory shall be upon them, and he will be their king and their lawgiver’ (D&C 45:56–59).”
