Ask and You Shall Receive

Jesus 2

Awhile back, the angels asked me to dedicate the Angel Insight on Sundays to the Gospels. With Love and Gratitude, here is the Gospel of Luke 11: 1-13 – with an Angel inspired message and also a channeled Angel message behind it.

Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he had finished,
one of his disciples said to him,
“Lord, teach us to pray just as John taught his disciples.”
He said to them, “When you pray, say:
Father, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come.
Give us each day our daily bread
and forgive us our sins
for we ourselves forgive everyone in debt to us,
and do not subject us to the final test.”

And he said to them, “Suppose one of you has a friend
to whom he goes at midnight and says,
‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread,
for a friend of mine has arrived at my house from a journey
and I have nothing to offer him,’
and he says in reply from within,
‘Do not bother me; the door has already been locked
and my children and I are already in bed.
I cannot get up to give you anything.’
I tell you,
if he does not get up to give the visitor the loaves
because of their friendship,
he will get up to give him whatever he needs
because of his persistence.

“And I tell you, ask and you will receive;
seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks, receives;
and the one who seeks, finds;
and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
What father among you would hand his son a snake
when he asks for a fish?
Or hand him a scorpion when he asks for an egg?
If you then, who are wicked,
know how to give good gifts to your children,
how much more will the Father in heaven
give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?”


Jesus teaches us to pray with faith, addressing the Most High God, and when addressing, glorifying His Holy Name; asking God for His Goodness daily; asking God to forgive us as we forgive others (like the Heavenly Father forgives us) and not to subject us to the final test.

Jesus then goes on to help us understand how “persistence” will get the attention of a friend. Even if the friend does not move on behalf of the friendship alone, persistence will surely assist who is asking with what is being asked.

Jesus adds, to persist in asking  in  complete faith, seeking God when asking, knowing the door will be opened. Jesus here does not say the door  ” may be opened” or “could be opened” or even that it will be opened a tiny bit for God to “peek through” to see who is knocking first- but that it will be opened. God rewards those who seek him, and answers all prayers without hesitancy.

ask and you will receive;
seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks, receives;
and the one who seeks, finds;
and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened

When God opens a door, there is not one who can close it. Finally, Jesus helps us understand how much more the Heavenly Father will give to us when asked. Not as a human gives, for even the wicked human parent knows how to give good gifts to their children. But as the Heavenly Father gives to His children- His Holy Spirit.  [see reference]

“Greetings beloved all ! Blessed are they who believe in God’s Goodness. God does see what you are asking and how you feel. God loves His children and Loves to give them His Gifts. His Holy Spirit. Ask the Holy Spirit for help to overcome any seeming difficulties if any. Ask God to open a door if needed. This is a question worth asking! Ask God daily for HIs blessings. Ask God on behalf of others. Asking God for HIs blessings will increase your own blessings and also for all- lifting your heart and those around you. Trusting God answers all prayer, knowing He opens doors, for it is as it is written- do not hesitate to go before the Heavenly Father and His Son, who offered this insight. For this is God’s Holy Will- giving thanks to God for all He has done- and all open doors. And so it is beloved, amen, amen, amen.” ~ the Angels
