Then Men Will Say, ‘Surely The Righteous Still Are Rewarded’
Luke 18:7-8:“Now will GOD not judge in favor of HIS own people who cry to HIM day and night for help? Will HE be slow to help them? I tell you, HE will judge in their favor and do it quickly. But will the SON OF MAN find faith on earth when HE comes?”
Before we get into the message, let us take a few prayer points:
- It is written that GOD has given a measure of faith to everyone, and also that faith is one of the gifts of the HOLY SPIRIT…FATHER in the NAME OF JESUS give me a double portion of the commensurate measure of faith I need to get answers to my prayers
- LORD during this 91days concerning all my cries judge quickly in my favor according to YOUR WORD in the NAME OF JESUS.
Without any doubt these are the end times. The Bible warns us in Revelations 12:12 that the devil is filled with fury because he knows that his time is short. That is why the afflictions of the righteous seem to multiple daily, and evil doers invent new ways to implement pain and suffering upon the children of GOD. (Roman 1:30)
Many in the BODY OF CHRIST find themselves in Jeremiah’s position where he asked GOD, ‘why does the way of the wicked prosper? Why do all the faithless live at ease? Jeremiah 12:1b The psalmist says in Psalm 73:3 -6 for I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. They have no struggles; their bodies are healthy and strong. They are free from the burdens common to man; they are not plagued by human ills. Therefore pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with violence. In verse 16, he asserts that trying to understand all this was oppressive to him and in verse 17 he gets the revelation of the end of the wicked when he entered the sanctuary..
Revelations 12:12 mentions that the devil is filled with fury! Look at the righteous, even Psalm 34:19 that many are the afflictions of the righteous BUT THE LORD DELIVERS THEM FROM ALL. In what way is the enemy afflicting you? In the Bible are many examples of righteous people who were afflicted but delivered. We are all familiar with what happened to Joseph, Jabez, Job and our Savior JESUS. These are just a few who had GOD’S dramatic deliverance. Psalm 107:6 Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble and HE delivered them from their distress.. HALLELUJAH. PRAISE THE LORD
1 Chronicles 4:10:“Jabez cried out to the GOD OF ISRAEL, ‘Oh that YOU would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let YOUR HAND be with me and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.’ And GOD granted his request.”
The GOD who answered Jabez, is still on the THRONE. HE has not changed, neither has HE stopped rewarding those who seek HIM diligently. HALLELUJAH AMEN. 2 Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew HIMSELF strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward HIM ..HALLELUJAH.
When GOD turned the captivity of Zion, the Bible records that the other nations said about them that ‘THE LORD DID GREAT THINGS FOR THEM’ Psalm 126:2..Again in Psalm 57:11 it is recorded that people will say ‘the righteous are indeed rewarded’
When blind Bartimaeus heard that JESUS OF NAZARETH was passing by, he used the opportunity to present his case before the ONE who had the power to restore his sight. Yet JESUS asked him ‘what do you want me to do for you? In luke 18:42 Jesus said to him, ‘then see! Your faith has made you well.’ HALLELUJAH!
Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please GOD, because anyone who comes to HIM must believe that HE exists and that HE rewards those who earnestly seek HIM..
Yes beloved, the LORD our GOD is still rewarding the righteous. Our many afflictions will abound in testimonies that will win souls for GOD’S KINGDOM. HALLELUJAH! Our GOD is good and HE will not withhold good things from HIS children (psalm 84:11) and Romans 8:32 says —HE who did not spare HIS own SON , but gave HIM up for us all –how will HE not also along with HIM, graciously give us all things?
