….Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find Faith on the earth? Luke 18:8b
But what kind of Faith? and will Yashua Messiah find the right kind of Faith on the earth when He returns? This question arises out of one of Yashua Messiah’s Parables; recorded in Luke 18:1-8:
Luke 18:1-8 (KJV) And He spake a Parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint (not to give up); 2 Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: 3 And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. 4 And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; 5 Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. 6 And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. 7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? 8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find Faith on the earth? (Brackets mine)
Luke 18:1-8 (Concordant Literal Version) 1 Now He told them a parable also, so that they must always be praying and not be despondent, 2 saying, “A certain judge was in a certain city, who did not fear God and did not respect man.” 3 Now there was a widow in that city, and she came to him, saying, ‘Avenge me from my plaintiff.'” 4 And for a time he would not. Yet, after this, he said in himself, ‘Even if I am not fearing God nor respecting man, 5 surely, because of the weariness this widow is affording me, I shall be avenging her, lest she, coming, may belabor me into a consummation.'” 6 Now the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge is saying.” 7 Yet should not God by all means be doing the avenging of His chosen ones, who are imploring Him day and night? And He is patient with them.” 8 I am saying to you that He will be doing the avenging of them swiftly. Moreover, consequently, at the coming of the Son of Mankind, will He be finding The Faith on the earth?
Luke 18:1-8 (The Amplified Bible) Now Jesus was telling The Disciples a Parable to make the point that at all times they ought to pray and not give up and lose heart, 2 saying, “In a certain city there was a judge who did not fear God and had no respect for man. 3 There was a [desperate] widow in that city and she kept coming to him and saying, ‘Give me justice and legal protection from my adversary.’ 4 For a time he would not; but later he said to himself, ‘Even though I do not fear God nor respect man, 5 yet because this widow continues to bother me, I will give her justice and legal protection; otherwise by continually coming she [will be an intolerable annoyance and she] will wear me out.’” 6 Then the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says! 7 And will not [our just] God defend and avenge His elect [His chosen ones] who cry out to Him day and night? Will He delay [in providing justice] on their behalf? 8 I tell you that He will defend and avenge them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [this kind of persistent] Faith on the earth?”
Now I have included three versions of the same passage, as the second and third versions highlight points that I wish to raise.
Moreover, here we have, what appears to be, a somewhat troubling verse of Holy Scripture, but troubling for whom? Well certainly not for those who are truly born of God (born again), for they will be exercising their Faith everyday of their lives, so that when Yashua Messiah returns to this earth HE WILL definitely find Faith on the earth.
However, this is not the issue I wish to raise, for my good lady wife reminded me of some advice she received from a fellow believer many years ago. This advice went like this: “If you pray to The Father and ask Him for something or for Him to do something, then ask only ONCE and THANK HIM for hearing you, and KNOWING IN FAITH that He will answer you, whether positively, or negatively, and/or not straight away.” This is powerful Faith in action.
Now the widow in this Parable had no faith in the judge, and for good reason, she knew she would have to keep on badgering him until he did his job. Did she know how The System worked? I think so, but we’re not told. However, one thing is for sure, we know that the judge was a bent and corrupt judge, because he tells us so:
Notice, from the KJV: “Though I fear not God, nor regard man.” Then from the CLV: “Even if I am not fearing God nor respecting man”, and once more from The Amplified: “Even though I do not fear God nor respect man”. Furthermore, not only this, but we are also told by Yashua Messiah Himself (KJV): “There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man”. (CLV): “A certain judge was in a certain city, who did not fear God and did not respect man.” Finally, The Amplified: “In a certain city there was a judge who did not fear God and had no respect for man”.
We therefore have, in this very short story, a crucial point raised for our attention – TWICE! and when Yashua Messiah tells us something TWICE! we need to sit up and take notice, that is, IF we know what’s good for us.
Here are two more examples of this duality teaching that Yashua Messiah employed:
1) John 6:44 (MCV) NO MAN can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw (drag) him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
2) John 6:65 (MCV) And He said, Therefore said I unto you, That no MAN can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
1) John 8:32 (KJV) And ye shall know The Truth, and The Truth shall make you free.
2) John 8:36 (KJV) If The Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
So, in like fashion, He let’s us know TWICE! that this judge had no fear of God in his heart, nor any respect or regard for man. Now why would Yashua Messiah draw our attention to that? and what makes this issue so significant that He should highlight it TWICE! in this very short Parable? That’s easy to answer, because it’s all tied in with His miracle of walking on The Sea, and His non-respect of PERSONS (See links 1, 2 and 3 below for ALL the background knowledge to this subject)
OK, so if you have now read the other articles you’ll be up to speed and will know that if the WOMAN had been a PERSON, the judge would have immediately taken her seriously, but as she was there as a flesh and blood WOMAN – a widow, and not a PERSON, the judge did not consider her as even existing, so treated her with utter contempt. Therefore, she was a non-entity to be ignored, or treated with no respect or regard at all, for she was completely invisible to this criminal corrupt judge.
However, because she was so determined to get justice she became like a dog with a bone and sank her metaphorical teeth into his butt and would not let go until he did the honourable thing and gave her justice.
If we then add in the fact that this judge was a blasphemous, Godless, secular, criminal wretch, it all begins to make sense, for his god was Satan, and only Satan’s servants, that is, his fellows, would be seen and heard favourably in his court. Their treatment would have been the exact opposite of what the widow received. In today’s language they would most likely be fellow Freemasons.
OK, so having cleared up that crucial element to this Parable, we then move on to the subject of Faith and what instruction Yashua Messiah gave us within these few verses. Namely, should we bother The Father with repetitive prayers like the widow bothered the criminal judge with her repetitive demands and requests? No way, is the answer to that. As already stated regarding the advice my wife received from a fellow believer – ONE request is enough. Our Father is not deaf, nor is He forgetful or cold, heartless and indifferent toward us, like the criminal judge was toward the widow, so do not treat Him as if He were. If we make our one-off requests, fully trusting, that, will then be us displaying the real Faith His Son Yashua Messiah wants to find when He returns.
As for praying, yes by all means, and keep on praying, but make sure your prayers are not boring and repetitive. You can also pray in tongues, if you have that gift, and don’t know what to pray about – that also displays Faith.

Thank you for this 🙏💞
You’re welcome. Thanks for your comment.
Hello brother Charles, I enjoyed reading this, prayer is so important in our lives as Christians, to me it is the hallmark of our faith, prayer edifies
Yes, prayer is very important in our walk with Him. Thank you for your comment, and I’m glad to be of service.
Agreed. Masons indeed in today’s language. Thanks for the tip on prayer. I’m not in the habit of repetitive prayer but good to get a formal suggestion.
I had an interesting encounter with a fellow which rides the bus on occasion the other night. He declared he not only believes in Jesus Christ but that he knows him. This is the first time I have ever heard that from someone (who continued to highlight, briefly, the reality of scriptural translation errors, Catholic rubbish etc, and I am almost certain he wouldn’t be involved with any screwball ‘churches’), that I thought to myself he wasn’t talking BS.
So, have you got a contact for him?
I can find him relatively easily. I want to talk more with him about what he ‘knows’.
Yes, I would do that.
More chat today driving around in the rain. Anything in particular you think worth discussing or asking?
All you can do is draw him out (slowly if necessary) and discover how deep his beliefs are and what his understanding is. Keep off the Jew stuff.
Sometimes he almost sounds Hindu in his approach as in talking about soul a lot and understanding from a young age a different consciousness, a higher consciousness and incarnations.
He says he definitely believes in Jesus having been among us a little over 2,000 years ago and a return for sure but not so much like a physical person you could actually touch but that everyone will ‘see’. Made me think of Christ saying to Mary not to touch him.
Doesn’t sound too promising, unless you teach him and make a learner of him. All you can do is introduce him to some Truth and see how far that takes you.
Well, he’s in his early 60s. He has suffered a great deal of trauma in his life with the death of his father at young age and his mother I think shortly thereafter. He gravitated to Byron in the 1980s when it was coming into full hippie swing so I imagine many of his ideas stem from his trauma and his spiritual connections in those days as he speaks highly of them and what the place used to be. He seems to be fairly up on Pleomorphism and ‘Deep state” issues but how far his knowledge goes I don’t know. He is very reluctant to engage with many people and very much a loner. He claims he has had many health problems but I have to wonder whether he is also a self-sabotageur.
LOL, I think you can safely categorise this fella as no go zone as far as The Truth is concerned.
Well, he and his situation, it’s not really funny.
However, I see him here and there and we chat and if we chat on to the truth so be it. I think he is actually quite happy to have someone with whom he can discuss this topic as I imagine most would switch to another one soon on around these parts new agers that they are.
Oh sure, he’s your friend so be friendly, but unless you see signs of positive reaction to your beliefs (if you have shared them with him) then don’t get your hopes up.
Not to worry the hopes aren’t up. He is a very reluctant and guarded man as I say with much trauma in his life that likely gave rise to it.
It’s a shame he can’t give his load to The Father.
Not sure of he has ever had that idea presented to him?
How would you explain something to him that he couldn’t acknowledge?
Well, actually you’ve given me the idea that it may be as straight forward as showing him what salvation actually means; just lay it at the feet of The Father. Next time he opens up about his tough day.
OK, but as I said, I’ll be very surprised if he even acknowledges the existence of The Father.
Yes that’s a good question and one I had thought to ask him on but perhaps next time.
I think this has answered a question that has been bouncing around in my head of late regarding how to fight back against the bastards; what is an appropriate way to not be a doormat and of course the answer is obvious isn’t it – act upon the faith and the course of action will take care of itself?
But if we do what Hitler did we will be punished seven fold; see Germany for details…
Oh yes, Hitler failed because he allowed the German people to idolise him and worship him. Hitler represents modern idolatry – pure and simple, so in effect the Germans defeated themselves because God could not bless them.
But did he not also go after those that bore the mark of Cain?
BTW, do you still have that video up detailing how the UN is behind the immigrant destruction of Europe?
Yes, but didn’t God put a mark on Cain?
Not the UN, Isra-hell: Sewer Rat Kikes Are Behind The Muslim and Nigger Invasion of Europe. https://worldtruthvideos.website/watch/sewer-rat-kikes-are-behind-the-muslim-and-nigger-invasion-of-europe_eYwKYZYaodpVhY6.html
Where does this leave us? We can’t go after Cain but God will ensure their vagabond status and we just have to live with this curse no yes?
Yes, of course, it’s Satan’s world and ruled by his offspring, and the shabbos goys who have sold out.
Here is an interesting piece I got from your mate Bernician:
LOL he’s not my mate, although we parted company amicably over his pagan beliefs (solstice observing etc.) which I explained were not compatible with my beliefs.
He would no doubt not agree with my opinions on these fake kike testimonies.
I haven’t watched the video beyond a few testimonies, but you reckon the scene in Israel is business as usual and what is shown in the rest of the worls is a nonsense disinfo distraction?
What I reckon is that Jew testimonies are not worth a pile of crap, same as Holohoax testimonies. That means no Jew has had the jab. The Bernician has been duped.
Given the Holohoax precedent I’d be inclined to agree with you. However, the Jews I know here in Australia are all jabbed up like everyone else, some in a panic buy no doubt. I reckon at this point it’s randome total slaughter.
Jabbed with placebos most likely. Have a look at this: https://worldtruthvideos.website/watch/looks-like-niggers-aren-039-t-getting-the-same-jab-as-whites_S6RWpanSVLNO5vb.html
Yes, I thought that.
Just watched a video of RFKjr in Switzerland making a speech about a referendum coming up soon there. He spoke of a global coup d’etat and laballed all the players but wouldn;t ise the word Jews, at least not yet. In the comment section a fellow quickly filled in the details and noted that two days after Covid broke in the US Israel was championing vaccines in Israel etc etc etc …
What do you know about this?https://worldtruthvideos.website/watch/gulags-in-brisbane-australia_TlaV1iLJ9i4NpxG.html
What I do know is that it is true there is an Australian bird which, does make that icon whistle, and that many Australian birds were/are exploited for various media/movie purposes.
As for this camp, I have heard of these before, and people have on occasion mentioned them but as always it goes nowhere in the MSM.
I guess I’ll be living there soon enough. Hopefully they will wait until after their Christmas “Freedom” week because I have arranged to meet with Neville fior Baptism between Dec 19-23.
I don’t have much hope for this ‘country’ come 2022. Too many people here are taking it all too seriously still with masks and all that; some very strange mind control going on. Canadian government has deals with Pfizer for ‘boosters’ until 2024.
With that in mind, and my legal ‘edumakation’ afoot, does this fellow make any sense on the following:
I just wondered if you knew where it was and who’s behind it – private or government?
The Cestui Que Vie Trust is where it all began in it’s latest phase – we’re all deemed as dead (missing at sea).
However, I was never into trusts (equity) so cannot comment with any knowledgeable confidence. All I know is some people use trusts in order to protect their property.
Somehat on a different note, have you ever wondered if Vatican encouraged Germany with a view to the economic oblivion of the British Empire?
No I don’t think so. The Vatican ALWAYS hoped to wheedle itself back in and crush Protestantism for good. The Vatican’s goal was always to win souls for their money grabbing church not to destroy. Destruction was always the Jew’s goal and they infiltrated the Jesuits in order to carry their aims out.
Hitler at one point offered the German navy to the British as a support and an ally to help defend The British Empire, as he always saw The Empire as a force for good in the world.
We do know for sure through his ‘strange’ behaviour at Dunkirk that he always wanted Britain and France as friends and allies in his campaign against the curse of Jewish Bolshevism in Europe and in the east.
Having said all that he did sign a Concordat with The Vatican, but I do not know what that involved. Plus he was raised a Catholic by his devout mother whom he idolised. So there was some strong Papist influence in his life.
PS your link on the Cestui Que Vie trust was very good.
Oh. Ok. That is the work of a local fellow I have managed to get in touch with Mike Holt. Seems to know his way around the traps a bit better than Dawn and Keith. Do you see Common Law at all as useful?
On that note, Dawn gave me an email to the David Walter fellow (ex-police), that sent a Petition of Right to the Queen. I emailed him and he replied that his petition was sent back unopened. I saw today a YT video that I didn’t watch but it had a picture of the Queen ‘opening’ parliament in a hat. LOL except it is quite sad. So, there it is, as David said in his reply the Empire if officially toast; the sun has finally set on the British Empire. Indeed Churchill put the y in Empyre and now we are in Rome with Jewish overlords and…. Satan must be let loose a little season? Should be a rough ride.
Common Law is only as strong as the police and military muscle that you have at your disposal in order to enforce the determinations of those Common Law Courts.
Satan is not in prison yet, and his loosening will not take place until the end of Millennium.
Re: Common Law, that has been my thinking.
As a PS, in England we still have Sheriffs directly under the Monarch who are supposed to enforce the people’s grievances as revealed by The Common Law, but they are now compromised by the Rothschild puppet Monarch system, that is, as bent as the judges.
She sure did look silly in that hat.
I didn’t see it, but I’ll take your word for it. Putting it mildly she’s a very silly woman.
