Colossians 1:12-16 reads: "Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the first born of every creature. For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones or dominions or principalities or powers: All things were created by Him and for Him."
We have redemption through his blood. So you see, the color of compassion is red! Blood red! That was the tremendous price for us to be brought back into right standing with our Heavenly Father.
What does it mean to be covered with this red compassion? What is included in the heavenly inheritance of the saints in light? If sin caused the law of sin and death to rule over all mankind, then the redemption from sin cured all the fall. The life force in the blood eradicated the power of death for all who believe. The magnificent grace of God has been spilled over all the earth and His gracious compassion is available to all who will only believe it and receive it. This red compassion of which I speak is more than enough to blot out any sin and cure any and all disease or sickness.
As Peter and John were entering into the temple to pray, as is recorded in the third chapter of Acts, the cripple sitting at the Gate Beautiful, asked an alms. But didn't the compassion of God flow through the apostles as they said, "Look on us"!
God is no respecter of persons. His great compassion is flowing out to you now. The word of God is telling you, "In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!" "Be healed!" "Be made whole of thy plague!" The compassion of God is the same today toward you as it was toward this lame man.
Peter reached out and took him by the hand and immediately he was completely healed. Peter proceeded to explain why and how this tremendous miracle took place. As he explained to the onlookers, "The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus.
Contrary to the old traditional lie of Satan, that God gets glory out of our nobility while suffering sickness, I say NO! The color of compassion is of the highest royalty. Our precious Savior spilled his blood to pay the price of redemption. This lame man being healed proved the resurrection of Jesus. The compassion God has for us is the same compassion He had for Jesus. He loves us with the same love He loved Jesus. Don't you see, Jesus took it all upon himself for us! But then, he was resurrected to his Father's life and health.
When the miracle power of God surged through this lame man, God was glorifying his Son Jesus. As God's power surges through you, God is glorifying his Son Jesus.
As Peter continued to preach, he told those listeners how they had denied the Holy One and the Just, they desired a murderer to be granted unto them and killed the Prince of Life, whom God raised from the dead: whereof we are witnesses. What he was saying here is, this miracle was the witness that Jesus was raised from the dead.
My good friend, Jesus Christ is alive and well. Healings and miracles are happening daily, all because of the compassion spilled at Calvary.
Jesus told his disciples in Acts 1:8 "But you shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and you shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." This is not just power to tell about Jesus. But God will confirm His Word with signs and miracles.
In Acts 4:33, it is recorded: "And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus; and great grace was upon them all." The power of God is still witnessing the resurrection of our Lord Jesus. He is still resurrected and God's wonderful grace is still upon us. Your healing or deliverance is a witness of the resurrection. God's compassion is available to you right now to receive.
Peter went on preaching and explaining how this lame man was healed by saying, "Whereof we are witnesses and his name, through faith in his name, hath made this man strong, whom you see and know; yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all." When Peter said "in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk", his faith made demand upon God's power and the promises God has given unto all of us.
In John 14:12-14, Jesus said this to whoever will believe on him, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it."
The word translated "ask" in these two scriptures is a Greek word which means strictly a demand of something due. In other words, Jesus promised to all who believe in him, that after he had ascended to the Father, whatever we demanded to be done in his name, He would do.
When Peter demanded the lame man to rise and walk, the deformity of the man became subject to the name of Jesus. And your sickness or disease must submit and be subject to the mighty name of Jesus, as you release your faith in God's compassion and love for you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and be delivered, healed, and set free!
God loves you, friend. He loves you enough to give the color of compassion to be red! Blood red!
