Men ought always to pray and not lose heart, saying there was a certain city city a judge did not God nor regard man as a bad boy regard man what you don't get a judge in Jesus said now that was a widow in that city and she came to him saying get justice for me from my adversary. And he would not for a while.
So look at this well the same to the judge. I need you to avenge me.
I got a problem. I got an adversary. I need to get justice for me in this matter and that she said no, he would not, but she can't come in as the inference and word he said to himself, though I do not fear God nor regard man yet because this widow troubles me.
I will avenge her left by her continual coming she weary me just the range say little. Common to do some so although I don't care about God.
I don't care about people normally with this lady is on my nerves.
Now get the point Jesus is making the Lord said here what the unjust judge said, and shall God not of been his all cry out day at night to him, though he bears along with them. I tell you, he will avenge them speedily.
Nevertheless when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth. Do you understand that Jesus said just can be to respond. How much more will God respond to the cries against people who can't really come before him, God will do it.
He said, but the question is, is he going to find faith when it comes back to the matter is lot of us are in a society where we are doing a really good imitation really good limitation slowly. Some churches have become secularized and involved with matters bandwidth divine intervention.
The charge does not exist to be a club for people to tell you what they think it will be a society of people bellyache about what's wrong with you people out to God and say, Lord, teach us to do what I can do but we do what only you can do partnership work but you can't do his work.
So I got us so God glorifies himself in my life. So we have to be praying people. We don't have the luxury of being prayerless now body is safe except goals find a Secret Pl. in God. So you gotta learn to dwell in the secret place that doesn't mean righteous people get caught up in some of this mass because the Bible says will be persecuted just like Jesus was persecuted. That's why is it about this bro, I will teach you the word teach you how to find faith in the word brand. That God told you to pray for unauthorized request and we need to learn to target this series of prayers do you drop a bomb anywhere and hope the enemy here is where they all balance watching the movements of the enemy don't you doing spiritual warfare. The Bible says we can afford to be ignorant of our enemies devices so you have to learn how to target your prayers where the enemy of your soul is, and we live in a world where nobody is safe. The safest place in the whole wide world is in the will of God. That's the only safe place to say place safety doesn't always mean that we won't have to go through persecution that the matter is these people were crazy with this demonic hatred will target us as believers just as easily or quickly as anybody else.
There was a guy on a train in Portland and he started calling out Christians. He wants to pick a fight with Kristen so he can stab them easily. So we try not know if the devil in him. It's a demonic force in him. It's I hate that's not where he's mentally ill and not everything is a mental illness something so daemonic and nothing is mentally, but some comic and you learn when you see one you got to learn how to take the old one that will not all you came up on the wrong one now in Jesus name, because they know the name of Jesus. They have to respond to the name of Jesus mouth of a true believer and follower of Jesus.
Some Sustiva cast out devils and they thought it was to come to my wheelchair. Are you in the name of Jesus whom Paul preaches the last person we are the name of Jesus whom Paul preaches the devil said that Jesus I know, and Paul, I know about two different words for no in the Greek Jesus. I know that was the word of personal intimate awareness. Every demon knows Jesus is another brick will set up all our knowing personally, but I heard about it what you will be you will be somebody demons when they had that demon conventions may have in a session on how to deal with the saints, be sure that you are in the category of us, not as some folks you want to push up all that they have a breakout session now so you'll run you about their real quick. You want to be in that category run up on you all big and bad you know God in you know you walk in menu walking up already preaching better than you say you got me you have you out.
You have to exercise and so you gotta learn to tell the devil where to go and join the map so we won't get lost about a here this is my house, you're not welcome here. Somebody this is my family, you're not welcome here.
Not putting up with that stuff you learn to tell the bill even when he didn't want your kids know know we don't like that cuss me out and I'm no parent.

Okay it makes me scratch. I'm not even Lord Jesus Savior, praying all the time.
Jesus Lord, hold myself, I just can't take this generation of parents who just think just the answer is just to be the Wimpy is most pitiful thing you didn't find a constructive way. One parent guy gets on the gold necklace bank anymore so they put the came up with a constructive way the child wouldn't know what they told the do and finally said, since I can't trust you and the privacy behind that door and providing for you.
She had them come and take the door off. They came home and the door to his bedroom. There was no door, she saw put it away soon as you show me you can be respectful and you can handle privacy in my home. I might consider putting it back up and he try to have a fit. Find another address. If you want to grow up around audit would preach a whole sermon this to my house and I thought this to my wheatgrass out on the port city of house imprinted as you hear so you don't get the run things up in here about the old school. My point is you gotta learn to walk in the authority and you learn that God responds to people who are in their prayers, James Barbara quick as I'm just laying the groundwork for the messages to, James five beginning at verse 16.
Confess your trespasses to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. Notice of prayer. Sometimes have to be in the context of you confessing what's wrong where you have need where you're not right. Amen. Prayer isn't just about external things prayer has been about internal things and noticed James said, but you're not trying to grow your self without the assistance of somebody else in the body of Christ. We not only do we cannot get ourselves what was supposed to be baptized by one Spirit into one body, according to first Corinthians 12. Understand that we must work to gather not been baptized into the body of the body didn't need the input to your life you got saved you are baptized into the body of Christ, which means some of you who will join the church, you better get that straight. I will be what God wants me to be. I need to be committed and connected to a fellowship of believers not show up every now and then I'm going to church sometime in the spirit tells me that's was wrong which you wait on the word you got word that tells you the assembling of yourself together and do it all as you see the day of the Lord's return approaching go to church regularly until this generation don't show up every now and then you go to church regularly, so that you can worship God publicly regularly and so that you can be imported to the word of God exposed in your life regularly so that others can pray with you.
You, your pastor can lead you and guide you Shepherd you and the things of God, you, from the spiritual kindness, but she shall about three accommodations in one church. Some ERC every six weeks here not believe when we got up and charged somebody with that will bring in your phone and showing up when you get what you been part of family and functional family living family. You could just spend three full nights at Billy's house and nobody in your family know will work out for you to imagine in my generation can't even imagine it stayed out to relate earlier in the day, but without cell phones if they had to get in the car and go where they thought you might be if you were dead when your friends live where is he somebody see that there was no saying, such as snitches get stitches in those days tell me where my son is don't balk at it. Well when parents were not only parent you panel your friends come on somebody all subject to interrogation by my sons need some information from you. If you have a plan to have another time.
You won't tell me what I need to know think it's time for us to understand. I know some stuff gone forever, but to whatever extent you can learn to walk in reasonable, God fearing respect of other people, you better learn to do it but don't yield your power to have the power to say about the household of faith. We are a family of faith. What we do matters in heaven.
And so, since we got answer to him. So we we live in community, is what James is saying we confess to one another. Don't just want talk to God about God and who else so I need to know the worst things about you. So I need to know how your trip so my needs permission to tell you what you trip and when you don't want to believe your trip call somebody you gotta have the kind of friends who have permission to jump up in your stuff you're most comfortable area. You need people who have permission. Imagine your life like a house, you need people who don't just go in the already straightened up things. See, we love taking full come on into the family room got jumped all the stuff and look like you keep a nice house.
You need people if your life is a house you need people who say I'll be right back I'm going in here and they had jumped his room and they opened the door flies.
You need to call you out the live because if I'm a seasons whether you need a foul with a friend. You need a friend who knows the worst of you and won't abandon you. The Bible says a friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. Amen. And so we need people to confess to people who know what's really going on.
