… will He find faith?

“ But when the Son of Man returns, how many will he find on the earth who have faith?”” Jesus

Luke 18:8

… and that’s the real question, isn’t it? Jesus the Nazarene, the Son of God, the High Priest of Judaism, the Christ, ponders the question of questions for someone who follows His teachings; how many will he find on the earth who have faith?

“He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor respected man. And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Give me justice against my adversary.’ For a while he refused, but afterward he said to himself, ‘Though I neither fear God nor respect man, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will give her justice, so that she will not beat me down by her continual coming.’ ” And the Lord said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge says. And will not God give justice to his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them? I tell you, he will give justice to them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?””
