Scripture: Luke 18:1-8
In Luke 18, Jesus challenges every single one of us to develop in the Kingly anointing. A widow is demanding that a judge avenge her of her adversary and the judge refuses for a season. But because she continues, the judge finally relents and says that he will avenge her of her adversaries. Then Jesus says in verse 7,8, “’And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?’” The verse that should provoke us is the last half of verse 8, “Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?’” The definite article is used in the Greek and it specifically means this kind of faith – the kind of faith that moves God’s hand in judgment on the enemy. If Jesus would return right now, the answer would be no! He could not find it because it is not prevalent in the church. It is not functional or operational and that has to cease. Let it cease now! Determine in your heart: “I will represent Jesus as Savior, and I will represent Him as Judge!” Then, and only then, we will be prepared for the last days!
