Awhile back, the angels encouraged me to dedicate Sundays to the Gospels. With love and gratitude, here is the Gospel of Luke 18: 1-8, with an angel message and angel inspired message behind it.
Jesus told his disciples a parable
about the necessity for them to pray always without becoming weary.
He said, “There was a judge in a certain town
who neither feared God nor respected any human being.
And a widow in that town used to come to him and say,
‘Render a just decision for me against my adversary.’
For a long time the judge was unwilling, but eventually he thought,
‘While it is true that I neither fear God nor respect any human being,
because this widow keeps bothering me
I shall deliver a just decision for her
lest she finally come and strike me.’”
The Lord said, “Pay attention to what the dishonest judge says.
Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones
who call out to him day and night?
Will he be slow to answer them?
I tell you, he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily.
But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”
This is a message about steadfast prayer to God; having complete faith that God is with us; knowing that God loves His people beyond our human capacity in His Divinity. God has sent His only begotten son, whose name itself means” God is With us” and whose name is above all other names in Heaven, Earth and the Universe. Jesus is asking us to not only have steadfast faith in God, who is the One who sent Him, but to believe in Him and the Promises of God sent through our Redeemer and Lord.
Lift up any prayer to God now and always without hesitation. God who answers all prayer with His Steadfast Love, knows the reason you are coming to Him. Ask God to help you and your family in all matters (this is a question worth asking!). Knowing that Faith in God and Jesus is what Jesus is asking. – the angels
God will be faithful, and Jesus’ last question poses the question, both then and now in our hearts- where will the Risen Christ find faith on the earth? [reference]
