Excerpt from Spices From the Lord's Garden: Bible Readings
This word nevertheless is a remarkable word. It is three words in one. It comes in after a very difficult problem has been stated or after great difficulties have been encoun tered; or after great deliverances have been wrought out; while our adversaries are about us or after all our adversaries have been de feated. It emphatically declares N everthe less, the truth is not made any the less; the truth has not been damaged the facts remain the same no matter what seems to contradict them. Nevertheless when the Son Of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? I am sorry this grand word comes in here on the wrong and reproachful Side for some of us. Read verses 2 Because this widow trou bleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. That is the saying of an unjust judge, one who feared not God, neither regarded man an unjust man acting as a judge, making a travesty of justice, and yet he would do this favor for this woman, lest She weary him. And Shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though He bear long with them? It is divinity.
