A metaphorical representation of the 10 virgins as depicted in Matthew 25. All too often we brush aside the Parables as if they are just fairy tales, yet this passage is a prophetic Word spoken by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ concerning the condition of the church today.
Many believers are vigilant and aware of the times we live in. Yet many slumber and sleep. My challenge is very simple: which are you? Have you been so badly let down by the Church that you have walked away to avoid the pain and now find yourself in a spiritual slumber, dead to a Spirit-filled life? Do you see the Church as hypocritical of the God it claims to represent, so sickened by it that you wish to have nothing to do with it?
I challenge you yet again. Do not allow man’s misrepresentation of God to rob you of a life of amazing fulfilment with Him. For as long as we are in our earthly vessels, there is the risk of pain and disappointment. However, my prayer is that we become the vigilant bride, alert to the great move of God we are yet to encounter. That we will rise above all challenge and opposition, unite as one in our worship and service of our God; so that, when our time comes, we will be able to stand before Him - our Maker - and be told; “Well done, you good and faithful servant”.

A Diversely Influenced Debut| Posted December 01, 2014
Nalini Tranquim describes herself as a passionate singer, songwriter and pianist who is crazy in love with Jesus and desires to draw people closer to His heart with her dynamic style of worship music.
Raised in a Christian home in a small town in India skirting the foothills of the Himalayas, Nalini went on to complete her general studies and eventually move to the UK for school, where she further pursued her love for music. After getting married and having two children, Nalini and her family soon found themselves in Australia leading worship for their local church.
These varying global influences play a major role in her first major market project, TODAY | TOMORROW, a rich and edifying praise album filled with lyrical nuggets of biblical inspiration.
Songs like "Daddy" and "Just As I Am—You Take Me" are just two defining examples of what this album has to offer in regards to its close and reflective lyrical content, with "Just As I Am" offering a snapshot of Tranquim's skills on the keys (she's an awarded pianist in her own right).
"Buying Me Back" is the most polished song on the album, with Nalini's powerful soprano vocals stripped down quite a bit to reflect on the intensity of the lyrics: "Grappled by redemption's song, my death penalty crushed by love so strong / From servitude to liberty, from deaths domain to Your sanctuary."
The album keeps a sonically electric yet chill vibe throughout. From the chilling opening notes of "Throne Room," you'll instantly be drawn back in, almost feeling as if you're listening to a piece from an epic film score.
Nalini Tranquim is a talented artist with a unique sound, both theatrical and intimate— think Beckah Shae meets Broadway. Given some time and maturity (mostly in regard to her vocal style), she has the potential to become a groundbreaking songwriter.
