These pictures have been speaking to my heart lately.
They touch my soul deeply and move the deepest part of my spirit.
There is a word for this in scripture.
A word almost exclusively used to describe the most powerful
force in heaven and earth.
The Compassion of Christ!
Not just any compassion, this word goes deep to the place
where the soul of man meets the spirit of man
and is in communion with The Holy Spirit of God!
Here is the Strongs definition of this word:
to be moved as to one's bowels, hence to be moved with compassion, have compassion (for the bowels were thought to be the seat of love and pity)
Another special attribute concerning this word, are the very few scriptures
it is used in.
Below you will see them, along with these pictures, I believe
they will speak to your heart. I long to know The Love and
Compassion of Christ.
Not only to love , but to love so greatly that The Virtue of
God Himself flows freely to heal all who are oppressed of The Devil.
To see restored Souls and Bodies.
To see once helpless cases, sitting at peace,fully restored and with perfect
peace of mind,body, spirit and soul!
I challenge you to look up these scripture and read them in context after
you allow the verses and images to touch your heart.
35 Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. 36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
Matthew 14:14 New King James Version (NKJV)
14 And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.
Matthew 15:29-38 New King James Version (NKJV)
Jesus Heals Great Multitudes
29 Jesus departed from there, skirted the Sea of Galilee, and went up on the mountain and sat down there. 30 Then great multitudes came to Him, having with them the lame, blind, mute, maimed, and many others; and they laid them down at Jesus’ feet, and He healed them. 31 So the multitude marveled when they saw the mute speaking, the maimed made whole, the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.
32 Now Jesus called His disciples to Himself and said, “I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now continued with Me three days and have nothing to eat. And I do not want to send them away hungry, lest they faint on the way.”
33 Then His disciples said to Him, “Where could we get enough bread in the wilderness to fill such a great multitude?”
34 Jesus said to them, “How many loaves do you have?”
And they said, “Seven, and a few little fish.”
35 So He commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. 36 And He took the seven loaves and the fish and gave thanks, broke them and gave them to His disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitude. 37 So they all ate and were filled, and they took up seven large baskets full of the fragments that were left. 38 Now those who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children.
Matthew 20:29-34 New King James Version (NKJV)
Two Blind Men Receive Their Sight
29 Now as they went out of Jericho, a great multitude followed Him. 30 And behold, two blind men sitting by the road, when they heard that Jesus was passing by, cried out, saying, “Have mercy on us, O Lord, Son of David!”
31 Then the multitude warned them that they should be quiet; but they cried out all the more, saying, “Have mercy on us, O Lord, Son of David!”
32 So Jesus stood still and called them, and said, “What do you want Me to do for you?”
33 They said to Him, “Lord, that our eyes may be opened.” 34 So Jesus had compassion and touched their eyes. And immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed Him.
Mark 1:40-42 New King James Version (NKJV)
40 Now a leper came to Him, imploring Him, kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.”
41 Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.” 42 As soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy left him, and he was cleansed.
There are just a few other verses that use this particular word that
are not directly speaking of Jesus.
Oh, but The Compassion of God is clearly communicated!!
Look them up and read them in context.

on her, and said unto her, Weep not.
But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
