“Jesus never had empathy but compassion for the people who He met within His life journey, within the last three years of His ministry before going to the Father, where He is seated at His right hand, not to judge but to intercede on our behalf when we ask Him for healing and wholeness.
John 10:10, “The thief comes only in order to steal, kill, and destroy. I have come in order that you might have life – life in all its fullness.”
The fullness of the meaning of empathy according to Collins New English Dictionary, assigns “empathy” as “that emotional effect of imagination which impels a person to assume the identity of another and experience the latter’s reactions in some given circumstance,” which commonly becomes a state of their sickness and infirmity. Jesus never once showed empathy, but rather compassion and mercy towards those who approached Him for healing, and they were healed, made whole complete lacking in nothing. Matthew 6:10, declares to us “But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive the wrongs you have done.”
Feeling empathy for a person is not going to have any solution to any of the problems whatsoever, but becomes a sin on its own. Romans 12:8, “If it is to encourage others, we should do so.” Unfortunately in today’s world people go to counsellors to be relieved of depression and side-affects, of a traumatic occasion or circumstance whereby they have been infirmed, by sickness and empathy from a caring counsellor, who has effectively taken on their problem whilst in consultation, and has not been able to offer any solutions to the healing and wholeness of the persons in need.
Jesus said, “Come to Me all of you who labour and heavy laden, for I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matthew 11:28-29 NKJV.) This is how we should react to a situation, by coming to the Lord and seeking His rest with the solution, by repenting firstly of an empathy for self when counselled by a practicing counsellor, or on the other hand if we have counselled and accepted an empathetic approach, to hear and consult the needy. Jesus heard the problems, and with His hand of forgiveness consoled the needy and made them well again healed, whole complete lacking in nothing, with the warning “Sin no more.” (John 5:14)
The way out for us now is to repent of “empathy” sickness and infirmity, which are the proceeding results of having empathy:
*”Lord Jesus I give to you all of the empathy, sickness and infirmity which is lodging inside of me, and I repent and I cast it onto the Lord Jesus to now take control of my life as my Lord and my God, second to none, and to forgive me of all my sins.
Lord Jesus I now ask you to break the yoke of bondage upon our lives, which is the result of my empathy for others, and an empathetic person for my circumstances resulting in a dominant force of an uncompassionate, and unmerciful accusations against me for my circumstance.
Lord Jesus I forgive each and every counsellor for having counselled me with an empathetic outcome, and no solution viable for my attaining the solution and resolution for my healing and wholeness of the matter finally dealt with, and put back in my past.
Lord Jesus I take upon me your yoke of rest for this situation, and I am sorry for the sin of empathy in my life, which has resulted in my sickness and infirmity from time to time, with no release.
I now release and let go of it all onto you Jesus, and I forgive and release myself, as well as counsellors and friends affectively empathetic towards me.
I now draw the bloodline of Jesus over it all, Amen! So be it Lord Jesus do it!”
