The illustration 0f the 10 virgins. Jesus foretold his judgement on Babylon the Great's foolish false 'Christian' daughters.
Then the Kingdom of the heavens may be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2Five of them were foolish, and five were discreet. 3or the foolish took their lamps but took no oil with them, 4whereas the discreet took oil in their flasks along with their lamps. 5While the bridegroom was delaying, they all became drowsy and fell asleep. 6Right in the middle of the night there was a shout: ‘Here is the bridegroom! Go out to meet him.’ 7 Then all those virgins got up and put their lamps in order. 8The foolish said to the discreet, ‘Give us some of your oil, because our lamps are about to go out.’ 9The discreet answered, saying: ‘Perhaps there may not be enough for both us and you. Go instead to those who sell it, and buy some for yourselves.’ 10While they were going off to buy it, the bridegroom came. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was shut. 11Afterward, the rest of the virgins also came, saying, ‘Sir, Sir, open to us!’ 12In answer he said, ‘I tell you the truth, I do not know you.’ Mt25

The oil is the Holy Spirit. The 5 foolish didn't have the Holy Spirit. Pretty simple to understand.

Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.

Re: The illustration 0f the 10 virgins. Jesus foretold his judgement on Babylon the Great's foolish false 'Christian' daughters.
In fact, illustrations, such as Jesus used, are generally more helpful in driving home a point, for (1) they command interest and attention, (2) they stir up the thinking ability, (3) they stir emotions and reach the heart, (4) they aid memory, and (5) they preserve the truth, because they are based on life and natural things, whereas mere words may change in meaning.

Consequently, though Jesus taught on earth more than 1,900 years ago, his teachings are not archaic, and we can understand them and get as much out of them as if they were spok

Right the oil is the combination of accurate knowledge, kingdom proclaiming faith/work the Holy Spirit empowers.

Jesus approached and spoke to them, saying: “All authority has been given me in heaven and on the earth. 19Go, therefore, and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit, 20teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you. And look! I am with you all the days until the conclusion of the system of things.” Mt28:19

The real oil is the free gift from God, the foolish oil for sale is from Babylon the Great;
And I heard another voice out of heaven say: “Get out of her, my people, if you do not want to share with her in her sins, and if you do not want to receive part of her plagues. 5For her sins have massed together clear up to heaven, and God has called her acts of injustice to mind. 6Repay her in the way she treated others, yes, pay her back double for the things she has done; in the cup she has mixed, mix a double portion for her. 7To the extent that she glorified herself and lived in shameless luxury, to that extent give her torment and mourning. For she keeps saying in her heart: ‘I sit as queen, and I am not a widow, and I will never see mourning.’ 8That is why in one day her plagues will come, death and mourning and famine, and she will be completely burned with fire, because Jehovah God, who judged her, is strong.

CHAPTER 112
A Lesson in Vigilance—The Virgins

MATTHEW 25:1-13

JESUS GIVES THE ILLUSTRATION OF THE TEN VIRGINS

Jesus has been answering his apostles’ question regarding the sign of his presence and of the conclusion of the system of things. With this in mind, he now gives them wise admonition by means of an additional illustration. Its fulfillment would be observable by those living during his presence.

He introduces the illustration, saying: “The Kingdom of the heavens may be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were discreet.”—Matthew 25:1, 2.

Re: The illustration 0f the 10 virgins. Jesus foretold his judgement on Babylon the Great's foolish false 'Christian' daughters.
Jesus does not mean that half of his disciples who inherit the Kingdom of the heavens are foolish and the other half are discreet. Rather, he is making the point that in connection with the Kingdom, each of his disciples has the capacity to choose to be vigilant or to be distracted. Jesus has no doubt, though, that each of his servants can remain faithful and receive his Father’s blessings.

In the illustration, all ten virgins go out to welcome the bridegroom and to join the wedding procession. When he arrives, the virgins will light the route with their lamps, honoring him as he brings his bride to the house prepared for her. How do things work out, though?

Jesus explains: “The foolish took their lamps but took no oil with them, whereas the discreet took oil in their flasks along with their lamps. While the bridegroom was delaying, they all became drowsy and fell asleep.” (Matthew 25:3-5) The bridegroom does not arrive as soon as expected. There seems to be a long delay, during which the virgins fall asleep. The apostles may recall what Jesus related about a man of noble birth who went away and “eventually got back after having secured the kingly power.”—Luke 19:11-15.

In the illustration of the ten virgins, Jesus describes what happens when the bridegroom finally arrives: “Right in the middle of the night there was a shout: ‘Here is the bridegroom! Go out to meet him.’” (Matthew 25:6) What is the situation of the virgins as to their preparedness and vigilance?

Re: The illustration 0f the 10 virgins. Jesus foretold his judgement on Babylon the Great's foolish false 'Christian' daughters.
So the five foolish virgins are not vigilant and are not prepared for the arrival of the bridegroom. They lack sufficient oil for their lamps and need to try to find some. Jesus relates: “While they were going off to buy it, the bridegroom came. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was shut. Afterward, the rest of the virgins also came, saying, ‘Sir, Sir, open to us!’ In answer he said, ‘I tell you the truth, I do not know you.’” (Matthew 25:10-12) What a sad outcome for not remaining prepared and vigilant!

The apostles can see that the bridegroom whom Jesus mentions refers to himself. Earlier he had even likened himself to a bridegroom. (Luke 5:34, 35) And the wise virgins? When speaking about the “little flock,” who would be given the Kingdom, Jesus used the words: “Be dressed and ready and have your lamps burning.” (Luke 12:32, 35) So in this illustration about the virgins, the apostles can grasp that Jesus is referring to ones such as themselves. Hence, what is the message that Jesus is conveying with this illustration?

Treat others as you would have them treat you, including animals. Do not harm them or eat them. Forgive everyone. Do not have lustful thoughts. If 10,000 people hear these teachings, it is likely only one will already follow them. If you are that one, someday you will hear Jesus say to you, "Welcome home." The rest will hear something different. It is not my intent to offend, but to warn as commanded by God. If the people of earth followed these teachings there would be "peace on earth."

From Revelation
Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and heavens fled from his presence and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne and books were opened. Another book was opened which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them and each person was judged according to what they had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire, for nothing impure will ever enter the kingdom of heaven, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life.

From Jesus
Do not allow yourself to be deceived by Satan, that ancient serpent who leads the whole world astray. Look to your heart, for you know it is wrong to harm animals. If you continue to do so, on your judgment day I will say to you, Your name is not in the Book of Life, for how could it be since you were a destroyer of life.

Luke 13
24“Exert yourselves vigorously to get in through the narrow door,
because many, I tell you, will seek to get in but will not be able.

25 When the householder gets up and locks the door, you will stand outside knocking at the door, saying, ‘Lord, open to us.’+

But in answer he will say to you: ‘I do not know where you are from.’+

26 Then you will start saying, ‘We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our main streets.’+

27 But he will say to you, ‘I do not know where you are from. Get away from me, all you workers of unrighteousness!’



Luke 13:26
main streets: Or “broad streets.” The Greek term used here refers to the main streets of a city that broadened at central locations and that served as public squares. Such “main streets” were in contrast with the narrow and winding lanes that were typical of cities and towns in the first century.

For this is what we tell you by Jehovah’s word, that we the living who survive to the presence of the Lord will in no way precede those who have fallen asleep in death; 16because the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a commanding call, with an archangel’s voice and with God’s trumpet, and those who are dead in union with Christ will rise first. 17Afterward we the living who are surviving will, together with them, be caught away in clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and thus we will always be with the Lord. 1Thes4:15

Here's the misunderstanding explained:
But I tell you this, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit God’s Kingdom, nor does corruption inherit incorruption. 51Look! I tell you a sacred secret: We will not all fall asleep in death, but we will all be changed, 52in a moment, in the blink of an eye, during the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised up incorruptible, and we will be changed. 53For this which is corruptible must put on incorruption, and this which is mortal must put on immortality. 1Cor15:50

The point is "We will not all fall asleep in death" means as each one (invited to serve as king in heaven) individually dies off they are instantly transformed into spirit creatures in heaven.

Jesus does not leave any doubt about that. He concludes his illustration by saying: “Keep on the watch, therefore, because you know neither the day nor the hour.”—Matthew 25:13.

Clearly, Jesus is admonishing his faithful followers that in connection with his presence, they will need to “keep on the watch.” He will be coming, and they need to be prepared and vigilant—like the five discreet virgins—in order not to lose sight of their precious hope and miss out on the reward that can be theirs.
