Steve got a few minutes before church, thought I'd check in. I think what's missing here is the that there is a difference between the church and the Bride. Check the scriptures for the dichotomy. Everything Jesus used to illustrate the difference was based on Hebrew wedding traditions. His hearers understood that perfectly. Also, I would take a fresh look at the at church in Rev. Look at the attributes and ask yourself if that matches a bride prepared for it's bridegroom or a virgin with no oil?The context and timing of the parable as described in Matthew 24:29 establishes the timeline as the 2nd coming, not the rapture.
The rapture has already happened, the bride was snatched away previously. What the 5 foolish virgins are going to miss is the wedding banquet (the Millennium).
