For the word of the day I share the parable Yeshua/Jesus told regarding prayer and not being discouraged when we feel the world and individuals turning against us. The parable ends with confirmation that God will indeed avenge the innocent and it also ends with a very sobering reminder of what state the world and believers will be in general when Yeshua/Jesus returns as King. “But when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?”
Believers will lose hope and faith as they will deny Yeshua/Jesus and that is a sad realization that many of us are witnessing at this very moment as desolation and trials increase. Do not lose heart as the trials and hardships will multiply at an exponential rate. What can we do and what must we do you may ask? We go on living according to the Word as we pledged to safeguard the helpless and innocent, so that is what we do. We go on living and pray that we remain strong enough to endure for what is still yet to come. Not just strong for ourselves, but also strong for those who will feel like giving up and for those who can’t fight for themselves. We plant seeds of hope that we pray in time will take root in healthy soil.
All of us are faced with certain death and we have a choice as to how we meet that end. Will we be serving our Heavenly Father until the end of our days or will we cower in fear before the world that seeks to destroy all that is good and pure as the adversary is rapidly setting up his vile kingdom.
Will we remain strong enough in faith when Yeshua/Jesus returns? Do not lose hope and do not despair. We fight on with endurance to the bitter end because that is what we’re called to do.
These earthly “kings” will sacrifice millions of people within the blink of an eye for their own pleasure. Our King sacrificed His life for us, let that sink in.
Luke 18:1-8 “Then Yeshua told them a parable to show that they should always pray and not be discouraged, He said, “There was a judge in a certain city who neither feared God nor respected people. And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him, saying, ‘Give me justice against my opponent.’
“He was unwilling at the time. But afterward he said to himself, ‘Although I don’t fear God or respect people, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will give her justice so she won’t wear me out by her incessant coming.’”
Then the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge is saying. Won’t God do justice for His chosen ones, who cry out to Him day and night? Will He be slow to help them? I tell you, He will quickly give them justice. But when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” – TLV
