42. Persistent Widow and Crooked Judge
Luke 17:11 - 18:8
Yeshua circumnavigates the Galilee and Samaria one last time before his final “going up” to the Feast of Passover.
According to the historic parameters of the ripening of the barley, there would have been an Adar Bet this year in order to allow the barley to mature. Though already in the vicinity, and ready to go up to Jerusalem, he now goes through the villages and cities of the Galilee and Samaria one last time.
Luke 17:11 And it came to pass, before he went up to Yerushalayim, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee one last time. 12 As he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off. 13 They lifted up their voices, and said, “Yeshua, master, have mercy on us.” 14 When he saw them, he said to them, “Go show yourselves to the priests.” As they went, they were cleansed. 15 One of them, a Samaritan, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified JeHoVah 16 and fell down on his face at Yeshua’s feet, giving him thanks. 17 Yeshua asked, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the other nine? 18 There are no others that returned to give glory to JeHoVah except this gentile.” 19 Yeshua said to him, “Arise, go your way: your faith has made you whole.”
20 When he was demanded of the Prushim, when the kingdom of JeHoVah would come, he answered them and said, “The kingdom of JeHoVah comes not with observation: 21 Neither shall they say, ‘Lo here or, lo there!’ for, behold, the kingdom of JeHoVah is within you.” 22 He said to the disciples, “The day will come, when you will desire to see the Day of the Son of Man, and you shall not see it. 23 They will say to you, ‘Look here! Look there!’ Do not listen to them or follow them. 24 For just as lightning shines from one part of the heavens to the other, so shall the Son of Man come in his day. 25 But now he must suffer many things and be rejected of this generation. 26 Just as it was in the days of Noah, so it shall also be in the Day of the Son of Man. 27 They ate, they drank, they married wives, and they were given in marriage until the day that Noah entered into the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, and they built. 29 But the same day that Lot was taken out of Sodom by the angels, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 Even so shall it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed. 31 In that day, he who is on the housetop, and his stuff is in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back. 32 Remember Lot’s wife. 33 Whoever shall seek to save his possessions shall lose his life; and whoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. 34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. 35 Two shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 36 Two shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 37 The disciples asked him, “Where, master?” He replied, “Wherever the bodies are, there will the vultures be gathered together.
Luke 18:1 Yeshua spoke a parable to them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint. 2 He said, “There was a judge in a city who feared not JeHoVah nor respected man. 3 There was also a widow in that city and she came to him, saying, ‘Avenge me of my adversary.’ 4 He would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I fear not JeHoVah nor respect man, 5 I will avenge this troublesome widow before she wearies me with her continual pleading.’” 6 Then Yeshua continued, “Do you hear what the unjust judge said? 7 Shall not JeHoVah avenge his own elect, which cry day and night to him, though he suffer long with them? 8 I tell you that he will avenge them swiftly. And even though it could be soon, will the Son of Man find any real faith remaining on the earth when he comes?”

Come and feast upon the words in great numbers, be filled with the meat - fly high over the sea.
What kind of bird are YOU? Are you one of the Eagles that will Soar, not deceived by this world - one that will live forevermore?
Oh Father, Mighty YeHoVah, let the binding chains of this world, Yea the trappings of this worlds chains fall from us that we might come before you and give praise and joyous thanks unto You for making us clean once more. Light the fine linen of the Menorah and place it on our heart that your angels will gather about us that we may work with them and they shall do they bidding at the appointed time.
Oh Father, Mighty YeHoVah, let our flesh be eaten where the birds have gathered. Let those that are found unjust look upon our carcass with a repented heart that they may endure your wrath and be cleansed by the fire and the washing of your word. Let our spirit soar upon the wings of an eagle, as a man with horns of light as an ox and the roar of a lion from the Tribe of Judah.
Oh Father, Mighty YeHoVah, let us come in through The Door to the place that is not seen. Let the light of the Menorah allow your bread to show through. Let our prayers be as smoke of the frankincense and myrrh, rising higher and higher as a crown placed over your kingdom. Allow us the honor of taking the Menorah through the veil with eyes that see.
Oh Father, Mighty YeHoVah, increase our faith that it will be found as a bountiful harvest when the Righteous King of Glory shall come calling for the birds to be gathered for the great Feast of our God. We pray with thanks that High Priest of Melchizedek - The Righteous Judge Yeshua avenge us swiftly that we will not suffer with the beast ever again.
