What is God’s compassion? What are his mercies? God is love. Love shows compassion from which flows power, healing, provision, creation, and more.
Throughout the New Testament Gospels we see that Jesus had compassion on the people. He saw their plight. He was stirred from within and moved to action. If believers don’t have compassion for others, it shows a hardened heart. Operating in God’s compassion will change our focus and the manner in which we respond to people in need. Our natural selves get burned out, so we need to operate in God’s compassion. We will be on our knees in prayer.
Key Scripture reference Lamentations 3:22–23 AMP states: “It is because of the Lord’s lovingkindnesses that we are not consumed, Because His [tender] compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great and beyond measure is Your faithfulness.” Malakai 3:6 NKJV: “For I am the Lord, I do not change; Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.” Isaiah 33:2 NKJV: “O Lord, be gracious to us; We have waited for You. Be their arm every morning, Our salvation also in the time of trouble.”
NEW THIS WEEK: Lion of Judah Worship Center’s new format includes a shortened service to allow for Holy Spirit directed healing prayer. The entire service has been separated into three parts. We encourage you to enjoy all three, as a three-course meal! This message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on July 22, 2018. Be blessed!
NEW! Healing Prayer Time:
Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and his anointing.“
