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 18:8 CLV

You are worshiping that of which you are not aware; we are worshiping that of which we are aware, for salvation is of the Jews." John 4:22 CLV

The Faith? Salvation is of the Jews? But, most Christians distance themselves from the Jews, by even choosing a different day of rest to set them apart. If we reject Judaism in part or in whole, can we still be saved (James 2:10)?

We need to have faith. A lot of us do have faith. However, note that Jesus did not wonder if He will find FAITH on earth. Rather, He asked 'Will I be finding THE FAITH on earth.' THE FAITH? Since salvation is of the Jews (John 4:22), Jesus must be wondering if He will find the Faith of the Jews (His Faith) on earth.

By definition, to be saved we must wholly embrace the requirement of John 3:16. To believe in Jesus is to listen to Him only. But He only speaks in parables and He says that not everyone may understand His parables () and adds that not anyone may know who He is (Luke 10:22). Yet, eternal life is knowing Him and His Father. He also declares that those of us who know Him have the ability to listen to His voice. He asks us to do things to be saved (). Sadly, most of us do not listen to Him. Most of us rather listen to men. How so?

In His parables in Luke 16, He asks us to still follow Moses and the Prophets to avoid going to hell. Yet, most of us declare that Moses is for the Jews and only speaks to an old society. As such, we cherry pick in Moses what we like and discard as we please even though Jesus clearly states in Luke 16 that it is easier for our world to disappear than one character in Moses to change.

Another example which shows that most of us Christians do not really listen to Jesus is our siding with men that He was risen in 2 days and 2 nights even though Jesus states that He was to stay buried for 3 days and 3 nights as a sign.  But, just as Eve did in the garden of Eden, we choose to do opposite of what Jesus asks us even as we recite verbatim what Jesus wants from us. 

Most of us dismiss what Jesus says, as did Adam and Eve, to do what men (Satan) say. If Adam and Eve were sentenced to death for dismissing the will or the word of Jesus, Jesus will not impart on us His grace if we also dismiss Him in anything to believe in men and to obey men instead.

If we do not follow Jesus in everything we cannot expect to be part of the citizenry in the brand new world which Jesus will again create.

Faith is required of the sick for the sick to be healed from diseases. Faith in Jesus of Nazareth only is a must to be saved.

Matthew Chapter 9, and elsewhere, emphasizes the importance of the faith of the sick who seeks healing from Jesus, which enables Jesus to heal the person. In other words, if the person we pray for, assuming that we are really connected with Jesus (most of us are not because of doublespeak or double standard with Jesus), does not have faith that our prayers can really heal him/her our prayers are negated by his/her lack of faith. It takes both to be righteous to pray for healing and to have faith to be healed. As such, prayer is not to be in our usual manifestation of lack of faith expression epitomized by 'but your will be done'.
