00:00 hi my name is Sue Burdullis I'm the
00:02 director of the Camarillo Healing Rooms
00:04 tonight's session a session for entitled
00:07 Jesus's love far outweighs your mistake
00:10 and your misfortunes every moment every
00:15 day no matter what your situation looks
00:18 like God wants you and I to remember the
00:21 greatness of his love towards us a love
00:25 which is overflowing with his compassion
00:29 rich in His mercy and abounding in His
00:34 grace towards us it's a love that far
00:37 outweighs our mistakes and our
00:40 misfortunes in this life the title of
00:43 tonight's talk as I mentioned earlier is
00:46 about Jesus's love a love that far
00:50 outweighs our mistakes and our
00:52 misfortunes in the Bible there's a
00:55 prophet named Jeremiah who does
00:58 something in the middle of an utterly
01:00 hopeless situation something that I
01:04 encourage you and I to do daily his
01:08 words are recorded in lamentations 3:21
01:12 through 24 this I recall to mine
01:16 therefore I have hope through the Lord's
01:19 mercies we are not consumed his
01:22 Compassion's fail not they are new every
01:25 morning great is your faithfulness the
01:29 Lord is my portion therefore I hope in
01:33 him if you are in the midst of a
01:36 hopeless situation or know someone who
01:39 is especially in this area of healing
01:42 this message is for you hope is crucial
01:46 for your victory hope comes from knowing
01:49 and believing God's unconditional love
01:52 for you yes his love is for you Jeremiah
01:58 kept his hope in God alive by recalling
02:02 God's mercies and Compassion's that
02:04 never ever fail and it's interesting
02:07 mercies something that I have
02:10 come to understand and Jeremiah 3 21
02:14 through 24 I memorized this first for
02:18 many many years but I didn't know where
02:22 this word mercy came from and as we
02:25 found out in Psalm 103 there was a word
02:28 that we learned in Hebrew which is
02:30 tested and hasset is a very expansive
02:35 word describing
02:36 God's supernatural love for us and one
02:41 of the meetings of hasit is mercy
02:44 so really in Jeremiah 3 21 through 24
02:49 when Jeremiah says through the Lord's
02:52 mercies we are not consumed and it is
02:54 really through the Lord's love his
02:58 unconditional covenant love for us we
03:01 are not consumed so that put a whole new
03:04 richer meaning in it for me
03:07 Jeremiah 3 21 through 24 in tonight's
03:11 lesson we're going to actually look at
03:12 three different aspects of this word
03:14 hasit or God's unconditional love for us
03:17 we will be to be looking at compassion
03:20 and mercy and grace so hasit when it's
03:23 translated it can be translated with one
03:27 of these three words compassion mercy or
03:30 grace as well as many other words
03:33 there's just not one word in the English
03:35 language that fully translates that word
03:38 happen for us let us pray father help
03:43 each one of us throughout our day to
03:46 recall to mind what your son Jesus has
03:48 done for us on the cross because of your
03:52 great love for us thank you thank you
03:56 for your unceasing mercies and
03:59 compassion that are new every morning
04:01 because of your great love for us great
04:04 is your faithfulness amen for the last
04:10 three weeks in this series the love of
04:12 God heals we have been talking about
04:15 God's supernatural love a love that
04:18 far above and beyond our natural
04:21 thinking our natural feelings and our
04:25 natural ways and abilities of expressing
04:29 love to one another as well as receiving
04:32 God's love God's supernatural love like
04:36 I said it encompasses these three words
04:39 compassion mercy and grace and what's so
04:43 beautiful about God's love is that it's
04:46 available to all of us all who come to
04:49 God with their needs our last session I
04:55 introduced Psalm 145 9 and it tells us
04:59 how God's love is for all of us it says
05:03 this the Lord is good to all and his
05:06 tender mercies are over all his works
05:09 the passion that you have for God will
05:14 be seen in your compassion mercy and
05:17 grace that you extend towards yourself
05:20 and towards others through the power of
05:23 the Holy Spirit and there's a couple of
05:26 ways that we can actually activate the
05:29 love of God for ourselves and for those
05:32 that we come in contact with those that
05:34 we are praying about as well as those we
05:37 are ministering to first of all we can
05:40 perfectly meditate on God's Word his
05:43 compassion his mercy and grace as it
05:46 appears throughout the Bible but
05:48 especially in the Gospel as Jesus
05:50 demonstrates what God's compassion mercy
05:54 and grace looks like so we can see this
05:56 in the words that Jesus spoke as well as
05:59 in the deeds that Jesus did and this
06:02 will help reshape how we think how we
06:04 feel and how we act towards God towards
06:09 ourselves and towards others another way
06:12 that we can activate God's love in our
06:14 life is practicing that two way
06:17 journaling that we heard about in that
06:20 topic or that series that we did on
06:23 before Christmas in 2019 hearing the
06:27 voice of God we learned about how to
06:30 hear God
06:32 voice and then to write out what is God
06:34 thinking and feeling towards me or
06:37 towards this person and if you didn't
06:40 get it here this series I encourage you
06:43 to go to WWE embryo healer INSCOM it's
06:47 on the bottom of your handout there
06:48 click on teaching and then click on
06:51 topic and then click on how to hear
06:53 God's voice as you practice this 2-way
06:57 journaling one of the real key things to
07:00 this is placing yourself or the person
07:03 you are praying for or wanting to
07:05 minister to within the gospel scene
07:08 experiencing for yourself what God's
07:11 great love feels like what it looks like
07:16 what it tastes like
07:18 you want to put yourself in that scene
07:21 and receive God's love for yourself or
07:25 consider what does gods look like love
07:29 look like for those to whom you'll be
07:32 ministering to or praying for as you do
07:35 this look into God's compassionate eyes
07:41 of life look into Jesus's eyes and then
07:45 ask him these questions what are you
07:49 thinking and what are you feeling about
07:52 me or what are you thinking and feeling
07:56 about and then put the person's name in
07:59 there as God shares with you
08:03 his heart about you or about that person
08:07 you're praying for a ministry to follow
08:10 the leadings and the promptings of the
08:12 Holy Spirit that got allowing God's love
08:15 for you to transform how you think and
08:19 how you feel and how you act in your
08:21 life allowing you to be transformed
08:24 completely from the inside to the
08:27 outside in session for tonight's session
08:31 Jesus's love far outweighs your mistakes
08:34 and dis fortunes we're gonna be looking
08:35 up three words and I'm gonna emphasize
08:37 these over and over and you'll see these
08:40 as some of the Roman numerals that are
08:42 out on your hand
08:44 and these three words are God's
08:47 compassion God's mercy and God's grace
08:53 these three words are so tightly
08:57 interwoven together that it's hard to
09:00 distinguish one from another together
09:05 they speak of God's limitless love
09:07 describing who God is and how he
09:10 operates when Moses asked to see God's
09:13 glory God responded to Moses saying I
09:17 will make all my goodness pass before
09:20 you and I will proclaim the name of the
09:25 Lord to you
09:26 that's exodus 33:19 God's goodness or
09:31 his love is seen in his self proclaimed
09:34 name in exodus 34:6 God proclaims his
09:40 name to Moses as he is proclaiming to us
09:43 tonight the Lord the Lord God merciful
09:46 and gracious long-suffering and
09:49 abounding in goodness and truth once
09:53 again that's a Bible verse I have memory
09:55 memorized about God's love or his
09:58 character and I've memorized it from the
10:00 New King James Version but when I looked
10:03 up the original Hebrew meaning of some
10:06 of these words of mercy and compassion
10:10 let's take a look the closest
10:13 translation that I found to the Hebrew
10:16 was the new American Standard Bible and
10:18 there were some other translations but I
10:20 thought I'd use that tonight it says the
10:22 Lord the Lord God come passionate so
10:26 instead of using this word merciful we
10:29 have this word compassionate they're
10:32 using these interchangeably they're
10:35 coming from God's have some love for us
10:38 so once again exodus 34:6 the Lord the
10:43 Lord God compassionate anew
10:45 anxious slow to anger and abounding in
10:50 loving kindness and truth so instead of
10:54 this word goodness that we see in the
10:56 New King James Version we have the new
10:59 American Standard Bible translating the
11:03 word hasit as loving-kindness okay so
11:09 all of these words compassion mercy and
11:12 grace you'll understand by to the end of
11:14 tonight's lesson that they're all coming
11:17 from God's
11:18 hesed or a covenantal love for us when
11:24 Jesus taught us to pray in what is known
11:27 as our Father prayer Jesus declares a
11:30 new reality of how we are to relate to
11:34 God by faith what is that reality is
11:37 that God is our Father in heaven
11:42 we know that prayer Matthew 6:9 of how
11:46 it begins right our Father who art in
11:50 heaven hallowed be your name what is
11:56 good father do why does what God want us
11:59 to know him as a good father well a good
12:03 father gives good gifts to his children
12:06 and this is what Jesus said join us to
12:10 recognize that our Father in heaven is
12:12 good he says it's in Matthew 7:11 if you
12:16 then being evil know how to give good
12:18 gifts to your children how much more
12:23 will your heavenly Father who is in
12:25 heaven give good things to those who ask
12:28 him a good father knows the things that
12:31 you have need of before you even ask
12:35 just like Jesus preface the prayer for
12:39 our father he says in Matthew six eight
12:42 but your father knows you have need of
12:45 these things before you even ask him so
12:48 why does our Father wanna ask have us
12:51 ask him for something he already knows
12:54 we need because he wants
12:56 to have a relationship he wants to
13:00 connect with us and he wants us to
13:02 connect to his love why does the father
13:07 a good father give good gifts to his
13:11 children now you just think of that on a
13:13 human level and we all know the answer
13:15 it's because of that love that he has
13:18 for us as his children this last Sunday
13:22 my son Eric he FaceTime me and I'm so
13:26 glad that even though I had my phone on
13:27 silent adhere at buzz and he wanted to
13:31 for me to connect with his two-year-old
13:35 or my first granddaughter my first
13:38 grandchild and so he's really excited
13:41 and puts her on she's 2 years old and
13:44 and I just love facetiming with them I
13:48 love not only watching my granddaughter
13:51 but I love watching my son who was a
13:54 father and my son is exemplifying the
13:59 love of father god he's patient with her
14:03 kind and gentle he overlooks her little
14:08 mistakes at two years old and then he's
14:12 always extending grace to her and why
14:17 does he do that because my little
14:20 granddaughter Lucy belongs to my son
14:23 Eric you belong to your Heavenly Father
14:28 Psalm 103 Psalm 100 verse 3 says this it
14:34 is he who made us and not we ourselves
14:39 God made you he has made you not only
14:44 the sheep of his pasture but he has made
14:48 you part of his family you are his child
14:52 and he loves you with an everlasting
14:55 love just like an earthly father but
14:59 even more than that Matthew 7:11 says he
15:03 loves you more than any earthly father
15:06 could love you
15:15 when God gets good gifts to us first and
15:20 foremost on his mind is his love he
15:26 wants you and I to know and to believe
15:30 deep down in our heart that he truly
15:33 cares for us and that he truly loves us
15:37 when we take a look at the Apostle Paul
15:40 we all know Saul became Paul Saul living
15:44 this life where he was killing those who
15:48 didn't believe the same way he did would
15:51 he be king Apostle Paul when he was
15:55 touched by the love of God the mercy the
15:59 compassion the grace of our Heavenly
16:03 Father he began to address God as the
16:08 father of mercies and we see that in 2nd
16:12 Corinthians 1:3 he says this blessed be
16:15 God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ
16:18 the father of mercies and the God of all
16:22 comfort
16:23 once again this word mercy when you look
16:26 at the original Greek it can actually
16:28 directly be translated as these other
16:32 two words we're talking about tonight
16:33 and that is compassion and grace so God
16:37 is the Father our Father a great
16:43 compassion God is our Father of great
16:48 grace father of mercies so when you come
16:52 and you you say that prayer how father
16:55 who art in heaven have your mind come to
17:00 the reality of the greatness of his
17:03 mercy and his compassion and grace and
17:05 we're gonna go at the very end of the
17:07 session we're going to look at some
17:09 individual biblical stories that show
17:14 and demonstrate the mercy that God has
17:17 to us through the life of Jesus Christ
17:21 Roman numeral 3 God's compassion how do
17:25 you define compassion how is it
17:27 different
17:28 from mercy and grace Webster's 1828
17:31 dictionary which is really a fairly
17:34 direct translation of some of the words
17:37 that appear in the Bible it says this
17:39 for compassionate a heart that is tender
17:43 and easily new by the distress suffering
17:47 wants and infirmities of others so
17:52 compassion is really a feeling deep down
17:56 at the heart level and true compassion
18:00 changes how you live so you can relieve
18:03 the heartbreaks and the sufferings of
18:05 those around you in the world God's
18:08 compassion was constantly being felt by
18:12 Jesus and God's compassion deeply moved
18:18 Jesus to meet the need in the suffering
18:22 of all those around him I love how Jesus
18:26 responded to the indignant ruler of the
18:29 synagogue who was so concerned about
18:32 this lady who was hunched over for 18
18:35 years and bound by the spirit infirmity
18:38 religion would say she shouldn't be held
18:42 on the Sabbath I love Jesus's response
18:46 he says Jesus says and this is Luke 13
18:50 16 so are not this woman being a
18:54 daughter daughter remember a child of
18:58 Abraham whom Satan has bound think of it
19:01 for 18 years be loosed from this bond on
19:05 the Sabbath God's love as shown in
19:11 Jesus's words and his life he sees it
19:14 from a perspective that those who are
19:17 bound in sickness and infirmity are
19:20 living in the kingdom of darkness and he
19:24 wants to pull them out yank him out by
19:27 his love and put him under his rulership
19:32 under his love into that Kingdom of love
19:35 that he has for us
19:37 the compassion Jesus showed us was
19:40 supernatural his compassion and this is
19:45 how we are to express compassion to
19:47 others
19:48 what's filled with supernatural power
19:51 packed actions and an abundant supply of
19:56 supernatural resources of heaven the
19:59 resources on this earth never limited
20:02 Jesus and we saw that last time in
20:05 session three where Jesus fed ten
20:09 thousand people at a time and healed
20:11 ten thousand out of people at a time
20:14 because there was not a limit to his
20:17 resources and he always drew from the
20:20 power of God himself and that's what we
20:24 are to do as we minister to those around
20:27 us
20:28 yes little old me with a big God loving
20:32 God living inside of us we are to tap in
20:35 by faith to God who has an unending
20:39 supply to meet every need for every
20:42 person that we need Jesus is compassion
20:47 caused him not to withhold any good
20:52 thing to those who came to him with a
20:56 need I'm gonna say that again
20:59 Jesus's compassion caused him not to
21:04 withhold any good thing to those who
21:07 came to him with a need now when I that
21:12 you know just came whoa right into my
21:14 head as I was meditating on this lesson
21:18 immediately solemn eighty-four eleven
21:21 came to my mind and it says this no good
21:24 thing will he withhold from those who
21:26 walk uprightly under the Old Covenant
21:30 you could not be sure that you would get
21:33 a good thing if you didn't do good you
21:35 weren't gonna get God but under the New
21:38 Covenant we get to receive all the
21:41 goodness that Jesus is
21:44 because we take our place in Jesus
21:47 Christ as him and we received his the
21:52 goodness that God gives to him and we
21:55 receive it through Jesus Christ the
21:57 power of his blood and pie the power of
21:59 the Holy Spirit therefore no good thing
22:02 it's going to be withheld from us
22:04 because of Jesus now you think of about
22:06 10,000 people being fed and 10,000
22:10 people being healed Jesus did not
22:12 withhold any good thing from any person
22:16 that came to him that's the reality that
22:19 we get a live in so often we live in a
22:22 lesser reality that if I don't do
22:24 everything perfect I cannot expect
22:28 something good from God especially
22:30 something like healing or a miracle
22:32 right we need a shift our mindset we
22:36 call him I hit mine God's love his
22:40 compassion his mercy His grace take a
22:43 look at after 10:30 8 on your sheet how
22:47 God anointed Jesus imagine with the Holy
22:50 Spirit with power who went about doing
22:51 good and healing all who were oppressed
22:54 by the devil underline well hi was Jesus
23:00 so compassionate what do you think from
23:03 after 10:30 8 why was Jesus so
23:05 compassionate
23:08 what does it say he was anointed by the
23:14 Holy Spirit and he was anointed with
23:19 power that's what he had the capacity
23:22 and what was the result of this
23:25 anointing he went about doing good to
23:28 all feeding all and he went about
23:31 healing all what was the final outcome
23:37 of Jesus's compassion as seen in his
23:39 life Jesus went to the cross for us and
23:44 as us taking our place so we need not
23:48 need to suffer from eternal death and
23:50 destruction being eternally separated
23:52 from God I'll never forget when I was in
23:56 the prayer room back here one time early
23:58 on in my faith walk in this area of
24:01 healing and one of the ladies has this
24:03 open vision and she sees me inside of
24:07 Jesus Christ and the stripes the
24:12 beatings the strikes that Jesus bore
24:14 came upon him and I remained untouched
24:20 Jesus bore every punishment for my sin
24:24 so that I could receive the fullness of
24:27 what he deserved what he purchased for
24:31 me that was just it's always been
24:34 sketched in my mind and I'll never
24:37 remove that picture of what she saw that
24:40 day and it's impacted my heart and how I
24:43 feel about God and how I have been able
24:46 to receive it's not because of what I do
24:49 but because of what Jesus has done you
24:52 and I are inside as believers inside of
24:55 Jesus Christ he bore the stripes for our
24:58 healing God's compassion moved him
25:01 throughout the Bible is stated in Psalm
25:03 103 verses three to five to bring
25:06 salvation to every aspect of our lives
25:08 and is clearly stated for both the
25:10 forgiveness of all of our sin the
25:12 healing of all of our diseases Psalm 78
25:15 38 says this but he this is the Old
25:20 Testament being full
25:22 of compassion forgave their iniquity and
25:26 did not destroy them full of compassion
25:30 Matthew 14:14
25:32 and Jesus was moved with compassion for
25:36 them and healed their sick the same
25:38 compassion that forgives sin is the same
25:41 compassion that heals all of our
25:45 sicknesses and diseases now let's take a
25:48 word look at the second word I'm
25:49 bringing up tonight describing God's
25:51 hesed love for us God's unconditional
25:54 love for us God's mercy how is mercy
25:58 related to compassion I've said this
26:00 before
26:00 both mercy and compassion a lot but are
26:03 coming from the same Hebrew root word I
26:07 just seek compassion is more that that
26:10 deep down feeling that God has for us
26:14 often we think like no feelings are of
26:16 the soul no feelings coming from the
26:18 spirit of the Living God and he feels
26:21 deeply about us and his feelings are
26:25 what moved him to show his mercy upon us
26:31 his compassion moves him to show mercy
26:35 and the Musa propels him to show grace
26:38 to us what is mercy you've heard this
26:43 before that mercy is basically not
26:45 getting what you deserve because of sin
26:49 I'm not gonna say your sin because
26:51 you'll see in a moment it's sin that's
26:53 in this world Romans 6:23 says this for
26:57 the wages of sin is death Romans 3:23
27:00 says for all have sinned and fall short
27:03 of the glory of God through thin all
27:07 forms of death come into the world
27:09 sickness is just a slow onset of eternal
27:13 death
27:14 mercy is seen in the title I've given
27:17 today's session which is called Jesus's
27:20 love far outweighs your mistakes and
27:23 your misfortunes your mistake what are
27:28 they but your own personal sin choices
27:31 you've made
27:32 ways you have sinned against God
27:35 misfortunes what are they they're the
27:37 consequences that you are suffering from
27:40 the sins that are done against you or
27:44 the consequences of sin that came into
27:46 this world through the sin of the first
27:48 Adam and the consequences of sin that
27:51 you were born into through the first
27:55 Adam's sin you were born as a sinner and
28:00 therefore you suffered the consequences
28:02 of sin so in the Bible where the
28:05 disciples are arguing like this blowing
28:09 you know child why what caused is blinds
28:14 did his parents sin did he sin and God
28:16 says neither as for my glory I'm gonna
28:19 reveal my glory sin was already in the
28:22 world that child was suffering the
28:24 consequences a sin that had come into
28:28 this world and God says hey I'm just
28:31 gonna Jesus says I'm just gonna pull
28:32 them yank him out of the kingdom of
28:34 darkness and I'm gonna place him into my
28:36 love my kingdom of love I'm gonna let
28:39 him experience the fullness of my love
28:41 for him not only in his spirit but in
28:44 his physical body God wants us to
28:47 experience love in every aspect of our
28:49 life not just in one area we get so
28:51 tripped up in the Christian realm think
28:54 it's only for our spirit not for our
28:56 circumstances not for our relationships
28:59 not for our finances and God wants to
29:02 show love in every aspect of our life
29:05 mercy is God redeeming you from the
29:08 curse the consequences of sin you can
29:11 see the curse is listed in Deuteronomy
29:13 28 there very well spelled out and Jesus
29:18 has redeemed us from every curse third
29:21 word we're looking at tonight and the
29:23 third word the aspect of God's
29:25 unconditional love for us that word has
29:28 it the third word we're looking at His
29:30 grace God's grace what is grace grace
29:33 takes mercy and compassion to the whole
29:37 next level it just doesn't take you out
29:40 of the red but it moves you into the
29:42 black so to speak grace is God's and
29:45 you've heard this before
29:47 but you gotta meditate and get it deep
29:49 down it's unearned undeserved and
29:52 unmerited favor
29:54 well mercy forgave you of sin grace is
29:58 giving you what you don't deserve
30:01 what you don't deserve is Jesus and the
30:06 fullness of the inheritance that is in
30:09 Jesus Christ the moment you said yes to
30:12 having Jesus as your personal Savior and
30:14 Lord
30:15 you became according to Romans 8:17 a
30:18 joint heir with Jesus Christ
30:20 a good way that I've shared before that
30:23 I you can memorize this is the acronym
30:25 grace G God or riches a at sea Christ
30:32 II expense God's riches at Christ's
30:34 expense think of it
30:36 Psalm 103 verses 3 through 5 God's
30:40 riches at Christ's expense is the
30:42 forgiveness of all of our sins the
30:44 healing of all of our diseases the
30:46 redemption of our life from the
30:47 destruction and then crowning or the
30:51 surrounding of our life with his loving
30:53 kindness and compassion satisfying their
30:57 years with good things the mercy seat in
31:00 the tabernacle the Old Testament that
31:03 hosted God's presence here on earth
31:05 became God's throne a grace through
31:07 Jesus a sacrificial work of the Cross
31:10 under the New Covenant me by Jesus's
31:13 blood you and I are invited boldly to
31:16 come to God's throne a grace at God's
31:19 throne a grace what can reach receive
31:21 two aspects of his love mercy not
31:26 getting what we deserve because of sin
31:28 and grace receiving all of Christ's
31:31 riches the fullness of our inheritance
31:35 and when can we receive this in the time
31:38 for need I think it's so beautiful in
31:41 that Hebrews 4:16 let us come boldly to
31:44 the throne of grace to receive mercy and
31:47 health to receive mercy and grace when
31:51 we come to God's throne of grace we get
31:52 two things getting what we don't deserve
31:54 because of the sin
31:56 and getting what christ deserved grace
31:59 is that cool or what just amazing how
32:04 God puts all these things together in
32:05 the Bible so in a practical way how can
32:08 you remember God's grace God's mercy and
32:13 grace and what the difference is so I
32:15 don't know if you've ever heard of this
32:16 speeding ticket example so here you are
32:19 you're on the freeway California freeway
32:21 so 60 miles per hour and all of a sudden
32:24 you decide to you want to get to your
32:26 appointment ahead of time and you're
32:28 going 80 miles per hour and before you
32:30 know it you have a siren and a police
32:34 pole highway patrolman pulls you over
32:37 pulls out a ticket book and you plead
32:41 have mercy on me now my brother who was
32:47 a sheriff could play this he would pull
32:49 out because after he retired from the
32:52 Sheriff's Department
32:53 he still had you know the his thing that
32:56 shows that he was a sheriff so he would
32:58 pull that out and mercy was given to him
33:01 time and time again you know we get a
33:07 pull out I'm a child of the Most High
33:10 God it's not that you purposely go over
33:13 the speed limit but when he makes a
33:16 mistake you ask for God's mercy so the
33:22 policeman or the highway patrolman
33:24 wouldn't give my brother a ticket when
33:28 we call out for God's mercy we are
33:30 saying god I'm your child and I am
33:33 asking for you not to give me what I
33:36 deserve so how does grace look like in
33:39 that example grace in that example of
33:42 the speeding thing is now you're going
33:45 80 miles an hour the punishment pulls
33:47 you over you've asked for His mercy and
33:49 the policeman not only puts away his
33:51 ticket book and doesn't give you a
33:52 ticket he pulls out of his wallet 10
33:56 $100 bills and gives him to you and says
33:59 have a dinner and a free stay at
34:02 such-and-such Hotel the first-class
34:04 hotel here on me that's great
34:08 now you and I have been given something
34:10 far beyond 10 $100 bills when we're
34:14 caught in a mistake and ask for God's
34:16 mercy and grace we are given Jesus
34:19 Christ we are given everything that
34:24 belongs to Jesus Luke 15 31 says all
34:28 that I have is yours you have been given
34:32 every blessing in the spiritual heavens
34:36 everything that's in Christ you have
34:39 already been given in it far outweighs
34:42 some 10 measly $100 bills it's billions
34:48 and trillions and things you'll never be
34:51 added be able to add up on any monetary
34:54 level Jesus's healing ministry was
34:58 filled with God's compassion mercy and
35:00 grace psalm 145 9 we looked at last
35:05 session god is good to all his tender
35:08 mercies are over all his work why why is
35:12 God good to all his tender mercies over
35:15 all his works and we're gonna use this
35:19 Ephesians 2:4 Ephesians chapter 2 verse
35:23 4 as we go through several accounts of
35:26 Jesus showing mercy to those who ask for
35:31 mercies so if we can put that up on the
35:34 overhead but God who is rich in mercy
35:37 because of his great love in which he
35:41 loved us now these stories that I am
35:44 gonna be telling you tonight very
35:47 briefly and we're gonna look at a little
35:49 bit more depth as story next week but
35:52 these stories you so often we go like
35:56 that was back then I can't expect that
35:58 today but how many know that 2020 is a
36:01 year of great expectations yeah my
36:06 expectation is from God and from God
36:08 alone and I know this about God
36:11 according to Hebrews 13:8 that Jesus
36:13 Christ is the same yesterday and today
36:17 and forever so what he did for these
36:20 people you can expect for him to do for
36:23 you as you place your faith in God in
36:26 God alone
36:27 so what is Jesus's mercy look like in
36:30 this area of healing so we're gonna take
36:33 a look at Matthew 15 21 through 28 but
36:36 I'm just gonna pull out a couple verses
36:37 on each one kind of showing you the same
36:40 pattern and that's occurring because
36:42 later on as we look at some other
36:44 lessons in love next week in the
36:46 following week I want to pull out some
36:48 other things that I want to highlight so
36:51 it's definition woman cries out on
36:53 behalf of demon-possessed daughter now
36:55 she wasn't me and what the Jesus would
36:59 call his family the Israelites at that
37:02 time and we know the story that is going
37:04 like hey I'm not gonna give bread to the
37:07 dogs and she's going hey oh I'll be
37:11 called the dog if I can receive the
37:12 children's bread children's bread refers
37:15 to the healing that belongs to ours in
37:17 Jesus Christ so in Matthew 15 22 she
37:21 cries out think about somebody right now
37:25 who you know that they need deliverance
37:29 they need the healing touch the mercy of
37:32 God how that person in mind and you can
37:35 save this along with the Sarah
37:37 Phoenician woman have mercy on me O Lord
37:43 son of David and what happens
37:47 Mathi 1528 tells us the outcome and her
37:51 daughter was healed from that very hour
37:55 this is our expectation that we can have
37:59 in Jesus Christ the very hour that we
38:03 asked Jesus were Heavenly Father to
38:08 enter being as as we're interceding for
38:11 someone that very hour he delivers them
38:15 from the kingdom of darkness and he
38:17 places him into the kingdom of his love
38:22 so let's all say this out loud together
38:26 why did God show mercy through this
38:28 woman's demon
38:29 possessed daughter Ephesians 2:4 for God
38:33 is rich in mercy because of his great
38:37 love in which he loved us blind
38:41 Bartimaeus how many people know people
38:45 that cannot see like blind bartimaeus
38:49 blind bartimaeus cries out Jesus son of
38:53 David have mercy on me he knew that if
38:59 you could get Jesus to hear him he would
39:00 be healed so he cried out all the more
39:02 when everyone told him shut up and
39:05 that's what often everybody around you
39:07 they say it's impossible they try to
39:10 push you away from the love of Jesus
39:13 Christ and he cried out all the more and
39:16 Jesus says what do you want me to do for
39:19 you and he's saying that to you and I
39:21 tonight and to those that you know that
39:23 he need healing from blindness or any
39:25 other kind of sickness or disease when
39:28 Jesus heard Bartimaeus requests when he
39:30 hears your requests
39:32 he immediately restored Bartimaeus the
39:36 sight and he restores whatever area of
39:40 your life has been attacked by the enemy
39:43 especially in this area of healing mark
39:46 1052 jesus said to him go you your
39:50 wedding your faith has made you well and
39:51 immediately he received a spider in
39:53 sight and followed Jesus on the road
39:56 let's all say this out loud together why
39:59 did God show mercy to blind Bartimaeus
40:02 Ephesians 2:4 for God is rich in mercy
40:06 because of his great love in which he
40:11 loved us now this word mercy that we
40:15 just read it also could have been
40:18 translated compassion but we're gonna
40:20 actually look at I'm looking at just the
40:22 New King James Version we're gonna look
40:24 at where this word compassion occurs in
40:28 some of the times I'm not including
40:30 everything that's included in the New
40:32 Testament where this word compassion
40:34 related to Jesus healing people appears
40:36 but to blind man in Matthew 20 29
40:39 through 34
40:41 Matthew 20 34 it says this so Jesus had
40:45 compassion on these two blind men he
40:49 touched their eyes and immediately their
40:53 eyes received sight this word
40:55 immediately keeps coming up over and
40:58 over and over again why because God does
41:02 not want us to stick around in the
41:05 kingdom of darkness he wants to
41:07 Louisville on us he wants to to show us
41:10 his mercy he wants us to receive His
41:13 mercy his compassion his grace he
41:16 doesn't want us to be suffering under
41:18 the dictatorship of the evil one Satan
41:22 his arch enemy leper cleanse mark 1 41
41:27 through 45 41 it says this then Jesus
41:31 moved with compassion stretched out his
41:33 hand and touched him and said I am will
41:35 he be cleansed as soon as he has spoken
41:37 immediately the leprosy left him and he
41:41 was clan so let's say this for both of
41:45 those accounts on the blindness and the
41:47 leprosy why did God show compassion
41:50 mercy on the two blind men on the leper
41:55 Ephesians 2 for that side to say this
41:57 out loud for God is rich in mercy
42:00 because of his great love in which he
42:04 loved us do you believe it these are
42:07 what you meditate until it gets deep
42:08 down in your heart so there's nothing
42:11 that stands between you and God and his
42:14 love for you child raised from the dead
42:17 a child is raised from the dead because
42:22 of God's compassion on the mother of
42:25 having her child died at such a young
42:27 age and mother cries out and we find out
42:30 the child is raised from the dead why
42:32 for God is rich in mercy because of his
42:35 great love in which he loved us and then
42:38 we're going to look at the multitude and
42:41 a lot of the multitude because so often
42:44 when you see ten thousand people in a
42:46 crowd you know they didn't have it all
42:49 together you know they all had some
42:51 mistakes that they've made or some
42:53 misfortune
42:54 that they were born into or that
42:56 happened to them later on in life just
42:58 like you and I and you know none of them
43:01 could earn their healing another none of
43:04 them could be holy enough so I love this
43:06 passage because you are among one of
43:11 10,000 people and this was what Jesus
43:13 says to you tonight and Jesus when Jesus
43:16 went out he saw a great multitude and he
43:18 was moved with compassion and healed
43:20 their sick why would Jesus heal every
43:25 person present why would Jesus heal you
43:29 at your request tonight for God is rich
43:33 in mercy because of his great love in
43:37 which he loved us in which he loved you
43:40 and you and you and I I'm gonna tell you
43:46 a testimony a modern-day testimony it's
43:50 interesting it's one of those
43:51 testimonies that's like you know never
43:54 forget talking to this guy he mentioned
43:57 a little bit it was that International
43:59 House of Prayer in Kansas City Missouri
44:01 you would had young guy he was in his
44:03 20s and he just mentioned really briefly
44:06 how God had healed him so me just really
44:09 being interested and still AM of what
44:13 God does in people's life totally
44:15 transforming them I went up to him
44:18 during the break time and I actually
44:19 recorded everything that he said and
44:22 then I transcribed it so he had a tumor
44:26 that had grown from 0.9 to four point
44:29 nine centimeters in seven days they
44:32 surgically removed it that the cancer
44:34 had already spread throughout his body
44:36 through his limp thyroid in lungs he
44:38 knew that if he was not healed he would
44:40 die he had heard about the Healing Rooms
44:42 in Kansas City and decided to go there
44:44 for a week and pray and do a total fast
44:47 before he started his chemo they had
44:50 already put a port in his chest but he
44:53 decided this is what he was gonna do
44:55 before he started any kind of treatment
44:57 and when he got there
45:00 somebody says do you want to be healed
45:01 or do you want to know the healer he
45:05 thought about that for a minute most
45:07 would say I want to be healed you know
45:09 that's me but he said he wanted to know
45:12 the healer so he began to study the
45:14 Heart of Jesus
45:15 this is his words he read it in many
45:19 places where it says Jesus entered into
45:21 a city his heart was filled with
45:24 compassion for the people and he healed
45:26 all that were sick
45:27 this is his words to me Chris says I
45:30 want to know you Lord in this way I want
45:33 to look into your eyes of compassion to
45:37 look into your eyes as my healer so he
45:41 did that for one entire week just got
45:44 before the Lord and said he put himself
45:47 within these stories and God says God I
45:50 want to know you this way just as all
45:52 these other people who cried out for
45:54 your mercy your compassion I want to
45:57 know to you
45:58 that's the compassion of God I want to
46:01 know you and the father of mercies the
46:03 father of compassion the father of grace
46:06 I want to know your love for me in this
46:09 way just as she'd done for all these
46:12 other people in the New Testament so he
46:15 went back to begin chemotherapy they had
46:17 already put a port in his chest so he
46:20 says can you just do one more check for
46:23 me about my cancer they laughed of
46:27 course the doctor didn't see the only
46:29 need for the tests to be done but Chris
46:32 said basically this to the doctors I'm
46:35 not gonna go ahead with the treatment
46:37 you have suggested and left you do one
46:39 more test so I asked him I'm always
46:42 asking questions why didn't you do this
46:44 I thought Chris would answer me that he
46:48 had somehow his symptoms had lessened
46:50 and therefore he knew something God was
46:52 doing something for me for him and he
46:55 says no oh he says on the contrary I
46:58 felt worse than I ever had before you
47:02 know he had left for Kansas City so he
47:04 goes to Kansas City spends his time
47:06 looking at the father of mercies and
47:09 father of grace looking to the gods
47:11 compassionate eyes for him in the
47:14 meantime his symptoms are worse than
47:16 worse he tells the doctor this because
47:20 is believing God is true to his word so
47:28 Chris
47:28 he said the doctors do the test the test
47:33 comes back and there's no cancer found
47:36 anywhere in the body so much for
47:40 symptoms determining and we heard that
47:43 just a little bit of go with Mike's
47:45 testimony remember you know he wore that
47:49 back brace for one year he had
47:51 excruciating pain in his back and it
47:54 wasn't until he went in to the doctor
47:57 that he had all the symptoms still there
47:59 in his back but it was until he went in
48:01 and he found that he was healed a spine
48:03 spina bifida spondylolysis and
48:06 spondylitis all three healed at one time
48:10 but it wasn't until he saw the exam and
48:13 then it's that faith that comes in like
48:16 wow I don't have it anywhere of my body
48:18 what are you hanging around here for
48:20 these little demons these little
48:22 symptoms why did God show great
48:25 compassion to Chris why did he show it
48:28 to Michael for God is rich in mercy
48:32 because of his great love in which he
48:35 loved us we must look away from our
48:38 symptoms so we can look into God's eyes
48:41 filled with compassion and mercy
48:46 let's all say together ken can you just
48:51 can someone bring up the communion to me
48:53 and Ken can you get the communion um
48:55 thank you for doing that
48:57 in lamentations 3:21 through 24 jeremiah
49:04 didn't have this privilege that we have
49:07 jeremiah says this i recall to mind
49:11 he was recalling to mind the mercies and
49:14 the Compassion's plural of God now Jesus
49:20 he tells us do this in remembrance of me
49:25 he's basically saying recall my great
49:30 mercies and Compassion's that I've
49:32 already shown to you through the work of
49:35 my of the Cross God's Compassion's like
49:40 Psalm 103 it says your Compassion's are
49:44 as high as the heavens are above the
49:47 earth and you spine that in other places

51:02 the thing that has more power over me
51:05 than any sickness or any disease the
51:08 blood of Jesus Christ has more power
51:10 over me than any mistake I've made and
51:13 in this fortune I've encountered the
51:16 blood of Jesus Christ cleanses me of all
