WILL I FIND FAITH ON EARTH?
LUKE 18:1 – 9
This is a proverb about a judge who does not fear God but still follows His word by not being partial. This judge who Jesus was talking about was a believer, unjust and no respecter of man, and He does not fear God. At the end of this proverb, Jesus said “nevertheless when the son of Man comes will I really find faith on the earth” Luk 18:8. Because He knows that many call themselves believers but they refuse to do the will of whom they believed. For example, many that are going to the Mosque believed that unless they turn their faces to East to pray is when they are true believers, which is one of the ordinances God gave them, but when it comes to the will of God, He says through prophet Mohammed in the Quran that you are not a believer or righteous person when you turn your faces to east or west and God began to list the condition to call yourself a believer or righteous, person like believe in Allah, believe in the last day, and the angels, and the Book, and the messengers; to spend of your substance out of love to Him, for your kin, for orphan, for the needy of wayfarer, for those who ask, and for the ransom of slaves; to be steadfast in prayer, and give zakat, to fulfill covenant you have which have made, to be firm and patient in pain or suffering and adversity, and throughout all period of panic. Such are the people of truth, the God fearing”. Qur 2:177.
You believe in God, you are seeking His Kingdom, you believe Jesus is the son of God, you believe in Almighty Allah fine but there are unbelievers that believe all these. That is why Jesus Christ says unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees, you will not by no means enter the Kingdom of God. Matt 5:20. He also said if you love those who love you what reward have you? the tax collectors do the same and if you greet your friends only, He says what do you do more than others, He says be perfect, just as your father in heaven. Matt 5:46 – 48.
