18. Compassion is doing the will of God. [John 5:19-20]
PRINCIPLES OF DIVINE HEALING. JEFF. IN 51-0923
E-22 Notice. Now, Jesus went up to this pool, up to Jerusalem. And going through the market, He came to this great mass of humanity. How many of you believe He was the Son of God? He was full of love and compassion, wasn't He? Well now, doesn't it seem strange that our lovely Jesus would pass that great multitude of lame, halt, blind, and withered people, and just heal one man that maybe had a heart trouble, or diabetes, or something; and leave that great mass of crippled people lay there? I believe if He would've said to all of them...
Just think, this little audience tonight wouldn't be a handful up beside of what that great multitude was that laid there. A multitude consists of over two thousand people, and a great multitude. Hard tell how many thousand was there of lame, blind, withered; and He healed one man, and walked away, and left the rest of them there.
Now, that doesn't... If you would look at it in the right sense, now... Note, that was strange that the Son of God would just heal one person and leave all that multitude lay there. Doesn't it seem strange? Looked like He would've heal them all. And I believe that if He would've said, "All of you is healed," I believe they'd all been well. Do you believe that?
E-23 But now, when the Jews questioned Him, listen at what He said:
Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew greater works than this, that ye may marvel.
Now, Jesus said that in Himself He could do nothing; He could only do what the Father showed Him to do. That's the Scripture. Jesus said, "It's not Me that doeth the works; it's My Father that dwelleth in Me; He doeth the works." Is that right? God...

E-36 Then, when he was found in the temple rejoicing, the Jews questioned him. Now, this is Saint John, the 5th chapter, 19th verse. Listen closely. Now, the Jews questioned him. "Well, why didn't He heal all those people? If He was a great Healer? Why didn't He make all those crippled and people... He passed right through them. If He was full of love, why didn't He have compassion on them?"
People don't know what compassion is. Compassion and love is the will of God. And you can only exercise that as God gives it, not human, emotional passion, not emotional love, but Divine Love, which can only be rendered and given by God.
