The Compassion of Jesus Will Heal You

KENNETH: Father, we thank you
this morning. Lord Jesus, oh, you are so easy to receive from.
You did all of the hard work. You did everything that it took
to set us free from sin, sickness, disease, fear, and
all, everything that belongs to the curse, and we belong to you.
And we thank you for it and we give honor and glory to your
majestic name this morning for every word that’s said and every
deed that’s done and there will be many miraculous things happen
in this place today. This is actually the base of every
healing school, every healing service, every salvation
service, every faith service, whatever you’re doing. Hebrews
13:8, “Jesus Christ, Jesus, the anointed one and his anointing
the same, yesterday, today, and forever.” Now turn with me to
Matthew chapter eight. We’re talking about how easy it is to
receive from Jesus. Matthew chapter eight and verse two,
“Behold there came a leper and worshiped him saying, Lord, if
you will, you can make me clean.” Now there are millions
and millions and millions and millions and I’d even say
billions of Christians around the world that are in the same
shape that this man was. Is it your … I know you can.
Everybody knows God can, but is it your will? Faith begins where
the will of God is known. You can’t believe something you
don’t know about. Now notice here, “Jesus put forth his hand
and touched him saying, I will be thou clean. Immediately the
leprosy was cleansed.” All right, now let’s look at it in
Mark chapter one. Now there are, in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John,
there are 19 individual cases of healing and miracles. And some
Matthew, Mark, Luke, like this one, is in all three, but you
need to go through there and single out each one of those
because each one of them has some differences, particularly
in the book of Luke because Luke being a physician went into very
detail concerning certain sicknesses and so forth, which
you’ll see here. All right. Now in Mark chapter one verse 40,
“There came a leper to him, beseeching him and kneeling down
to him and saying unto him, if you will, you can make me clean.
Jesus moved with compassion.” Now, there’s something we didn’t
see in Matthew. Jesus moved with compassion, put forth his hand
and touched him and said unto him, “I will be thou clean.” One
translation says, “Of course I will.” And I hear him saying,
“This is why I came, to destroy the works of the devil.” That’s
why I’m here. Of course I will. All right. Now then, let’s look
at the same one in Luke chapter five. “It came to pass.” Wait a
minute. In the 12th verse. “It came to pass when he was in a
certain city, behold a man full of leprosy.” Oh, this thing’s
stage four, full of leprosy. This is the doctor speaking.
He’s full of leprosy. He about dead. “Who seeing Jesus fell on
his face.” Well, now wait a minute. Which is right? Did he
kneel or did he fall on his face? Both. Both. He kneeled and
then he just fell on his face. Glory to God. Why? My
observation is that he kneeled before him, but when he got in
his presence that the power of the spirit of God was so strong
that he just collapsed. He just fell on his face. This is
important because now we need to watch what Jesus does. “Who
seeing Jesus, fell on his face and besought him saying, Lord,
if you will, if it’s your will, you can make me clean. And he
put forth his hand and touched him saying, I will be thou
clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him.” I
see Jesus just … Get this man on your mind. Running sores.
Hasn’t had on clean clothes in who knows how long. Now here’s
something as you just kind of glide through here. You don’t
get inside this man. He smells awful. Nobody’s ever even,
hasn’t come close to him in a long, long time. They certainly
haven’t touched him. I don’t see Jesus standing up here like
this. Maybe he did, I don’t know, but I know him. I know
what he did. He just got down there in the dirt and just when
he collapsed over there, he just got down there right in his
face. Just got up there close, just as close as he could, and
he said, “I will.” And he touched him, and that caused so
… He couldn’t believe anybody had touched him. Immediately,
the death proceed apart, immediately. But there’s
something else involved here. I understand it, but it still does
not excuse it. Thank you, Lord. And he charged him to tell no
man, and you can write in there until you go and show yourself
to the priest and offer for your cleansing according as Moses
commanded for a testimony unto them, but so much more went
there a fame about him and great multitudes came together to hear
and to be healed by him. Now you check it out, particularly in
the book of Mark. Well, let’s just go back over there. Mark
chapter one. This is almost completely, almost totally
overlooked. “Jesus,” verse 41, “moved with compassion, put
forth his hand and touched him and sayeth unto him, I will be
thou clean. As soon as he had spoken immediately, the leprosy
departed from him, and he was cleansed. He straightly charged
him and forthwith sent him away and said, see thou say nothing
to any man, but go thy way. Show thyself to the priest and offer
for thou cleansing those things which Moses commanded for a
testimony. But he went out and began to publish it much and to
blaze abroad the matter in so much that Jesus could no more
openly enter into the city, but went out in desert places, and
they came to him from every corner.” He disobeyed him. He
disobeyed him. Now, I don’t know what happened to him after that.
Absolutely he’s made whole, yes. And absolutely Jesus of course
forgave him for that, but that was outright disobedience.
That’s disobedience. Now, I must make this clear and make this
plain to you. When someone in my position or Billy Burke is
ministering, or Tracy Harris is ministering in one of his
miracle service, Terry Miser’s ministering one of his miracle
services, whomever it is that’s anointed of God and a word of
knowledge comes, and someone says or like I might say, anyone
who has a … Well, let’s say, well anyone who has any skin
disease, skin disease only, come and line up right over here. And
there’s say eight people, and you begin to lay hands on, and
then all of a sudden there’s 30 people and you get down here.
Where’s the skin disease? Well, I don’t have a skin disease.
Well you ought to go sit down. Because 99% of those don’t
receive anything. Had you been obedient, you could have
received it right where you sat. “But I wanted hands laid on me.”
Well, so does everybody else. But disobedience is not the way
to get it. Amen. Now if you’re out in a public place and
there’s just every kind of thing there you can think of and
people there that don’t even know the Lord, oh yeah, they get
it. That’s the easiest ones of all to get miracles. But when
you get into situations where people like you, you’ve been
taught and you know and you understand, oh you really have
to be aware because the devil’s not going to let you get away
with anything that he can stop. And disobedience will shut it
down. I’ve seen it over the last 50 years. My goodness, I’ve seen
it over and over and over. And I’ve heard other ministers of
the gospel, I’ve heard them say it. “Oh my goodness, I’ll be so
glad when we get these Pentecostal people out of the
line and get over here and get these other folks where we can
get some miracles.” It took me a while to understand that. There
does come a time from whom much is given, much is required. And
when you know certain things. It comes a time you need to be
growing up. When you’re a baby Christian, your pastor lays
hands on you. You just get healed, just, you know what. And
then you get to where, I don’t understand this. It seems like
the pastor prays, but maybe he’s lost the anointing. He hadn’t
lost the anointing, you big baby. You need to be up there in
that line laying hands on other people. If you had … and I’m
very, very serious about this. Even if you’re in pain, even
more so if you’re in pain, like I told you earlier, you’re so
sick you couldn’t get out of bed. You can get yourself up and
get to church. Nine out of 10 times, you’ll be healed before
you ever get there if you’re not fussing with your husband on the
way or fussing with your wife or your kids on the way to church
and then walk through the door and, “Yes. Amen. Glory to God.”
Grow up. Amen. CONGREGATION: Amen. That’s good. KENNETH: I
thought about this last night and this is a good place to tell
you about this. Years ago, they brought a dentist. He was on a
gurney, strapped to it because he was having hard seizures
every five, 10 minutes. He was in a coma and they brought him
into the meeting strapped to this gurney, and Jerry was on
one side and I was on the other. And we both laid hands on him.
Now this was back of course in the days of tapes, and we had
the whole Bible on a little five inch reel-to-reel tape. This was
back even before cassettes. And the word of the Lord came to me
and I told his wife, I said, “Now you read to him. You just
read the Word to him. Just read the Word to him. Read healing
scriptures, but just read the Word to him. Just read to him.
Read to him. Then at night, put the Bible on.” I said, “Now
don’t just read until you just get worn completely out. Rest.
Your faith gets weeble. Weeble? Your faith gets weak and feeble
when you get tired.” So I said, “Just put the Bible tapes on.”
So she was doing this. Now when we laid hands on him, the
seizures stopped. Never did have another one. So they were
continuing to do this and a week went by. Got into the second
week and she was, I mean she was very consistent about it. And
now I’m pointing out two things, totally merging, but obedience
to the instructions. I didn’t come up with that. That came as
a word of knowledge. Amen. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: A
word of God’s knowledge concerning a present
circumstance or thing. Word of wisdom concerns God’s knowledge
of the future. So she… Now he never did have any
more seizures, and we’re into the second week, and a friend of
hers came over. And she had been reading to him all morning and
she said, “Tell you what, you take over and read here. And I’m
going to go ahead and fix,” I think it’s lunch. Anyway, she
said, “And you continue reading right here.” So she did. She was
just sitting there next to him. He used to do … He’s still on
this gurney. He’s just laying there and she’s just reading
away. All of a sudden he sat right straight up and said,
“Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen.” Now here’s something that
will interest you. He said, “I could hear every word.” He said,
“I heard every word Brother Copeland said. I heard every
word Brother Savelle said. I heard every word,” talking to
his wife, “every word that you said.” He said, “I could hear
you. I’m just trapped in here and I couldn’t get out. I
couldn’t talk, I couldn’t say anything,” but he said, “The
more word I heard,” and he said, “it just got down in me.” And he
said, “Suddenly I broke free.” Don’t ever talk doubt and
unbelief around somebody that’s in a coma. Don’t you ever do it.
Don’t ever do it. They can hear you. They can hear. I don’t care
what the medical people say to you. That person is alive on the
inside trying to get out of that place they’re in. Trying to make
that connection again between the brain and the body and the
spirit. Hallelujah. CONGREGATION: Hallelujah.
KENNETH: You just keep the word going. I have testimonies of
last minute. And the family, that is the reason why assisted
suicide is murder. That is murder. Don’t you ever forget
that. Don’t you ever forget that. Just don’t go there.
“Well, I’m without hope.” No, you’re not. Not as long as God’s
still alive. “Well, what if they die?” Well, so what? Did they
know Jesus? “Well, yeah.” Well, shout the victory girl. “Well,
I’m not sure.” Well, you better trust God. Heaven is full of
people. Last second believers. Oh, Brother Copeland live their
whole life like a devil and get it in the last second. Hey, hey,
hey. Jesus, your heavenly father, is not trying to keep
people out. He’ll take the last nanosecond. There won’t be much
reward, but I want you to know the least heaven has is way
better than the best hell’s got. Amen. CONGREGATION: Amen.
KENNETH: Well, you say, “I don’t believe that.” Well that’s your
problem. I believe in a merciful God. There are things that
happen. I have testimony, sat there and heard the man give his
testimony, praying mother, praying mother, wouldn’t let go.
Praying mother. He died. Wasn’t born again, didn’t want to be.
Didn’t care anything about God, or pay any attention to it. And
he slipped out of his body and he said, “I saw that light,
but,” and he said, “I moved over into that light.” But then he
saw, he said, “I’m there.” And he said, “I realized something
was going on here.” And he said, “All of a sudden, there was a
being there helping me.” And he said, “I saw hell. And I saw
heaven. And he called me by my name and he said, you take your
pick.” His interceding mother was still … “Oh, I don’t
believe that.” Well, like I said, that was the personal
testimony. We know about this much out of something
that big. CONGREGATION: That’s right. KENNETH: Hallelujah.
CONGREGATION: Hallelujah. KENNETH: God’s will is
that all men be saved. ANNOUNCER: We hope you enjoyed
today’s teaching from Kenneth Copeland Ministries, and
remember Jesus is Lord.
