Speaker: Rev. Yakub

Exodus 2:6
2:6 And when she had opened it, she saw the child, and behold, the baby wept. So she had compassion on him, and said, "This is one of the Hebrews' children."

It refers to the compassion baby Moses has received. He was powerless but God had compassion on him as well as on the Church now.

There are three compassions of God in New Testament as follows:
  1. Luke 7 -->God's compassion on dead youth in Nain.
  2. Mark 8 -->His compassion through the breaking of bread.
  3. Mark 1 -->His compassion on a leper.
ad. 1. God's compassion on dead youth in Nain.
Luke 7:11-13
7:11 Now it happened, the day after, thatHe went into a city called Nain; and many of His disciples went with Him, and a large crowd.
7:12 And when He came near the gate of the city, behold, a dead man was being carried out, the only son of his mother; and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the city was with her.
7:13 When the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her, "Do not weep."

The meaning of Nain is below:
  • Pasture, referring to shepherding
  • Pleasing place
Let now we make the shepherding as a pleasing place.

They will go out of Nain. Christians leaving the shepherding will go toward perdition for sure.

On the contrary, shepherded people are as a branch which abides on the Vine.
Leaving the shepherding = a branch leaving the Vine. The branch will not be dry immediately but it will be for sure and go into perdition.

Why is it important to be shepherded?
  1. It is because only tears we will get outside the shepherding.
  2. It is because we are facing enemy in shepherding, i.e. lion.

    Amos 3:12
    3:12 Thus says the LORD: "As a shepherd takes from the mouth of a lion Two legs or a piece of an ear, So shall the children of Israel be taken out Who dwell in Samaria--In the corner of a bed and on the edge of a couch!

    We are sheep which only need a pastor in shepherding. Being rich or great, a sheep without the pastor will be defeated by lion.

    The target of lion is below:
    • Our lives.
      Deuteronomy 33:20
      33:20 And of Gad he said: "Blessed ishe who enlarges Gad; He dwells as a lion, And tears the arm and the crown of his head.

      The crown of head refers to wicked and unclean thoughts. We are facing the lion when we are thinking not according to the word.
      The hand refers to deeds not in line with the Word.
      Do not use the ears to hear gossips nor teachings which are not in line with the teaching we have heard. We have to reject other teachings expressly.

    • Marriage.
      Daniel 6:24-25
      6:24 And the king gave the command, and they brought those men who had accused Daniel, and they cast theminto the den of lions--them, their children, and their wives; and the lions overpowered them, and broke all their bones in pieces before they ever came to the bottom of the den.
      6:25 Then King Darius wrote: To all peoples, nations, and languages that dwell in all the earth: Peace be multiplied to you.

      The marriage begins to be destroyed by the lion when the members in it begin to accuse one another. The lion is working at that time. It is better to ask to get clear answer when we feel something in our heart about other.

      Daniel 6:20
      6:20 And when he came to the den, he cried out with a lamenting voice to Daniel. The king spoke, saying to Daniel, "Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?"

      Be careful! Do not accuse one who is patient in shepherding.

    • Shepherding (vineyard)
      Judges 14:5
      14:5 So Samson went down to Timnah with his father and mother, and came to the vineyards of Timnah. Now to hissurprise, a young lion cameroaring against him.

      The lion takes forms below in shepherding:
      1. The sound of roaring = the sound of false teaching.
        Be careful! Satan wants to destroy Christians' lives through two ways, i.e. sins and false teachings. If the sins cannot work to destroy, Satan will use false teachings.

      2. Murmuring and jealousy.
        Matthew 20:11, 15
        20:11 "And when they had received it, they complained against the landowner,
        20:15 'Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with my own things? Or is your eye evil because I am good?'
How is the solution in facing the lion?
  • Being shepherded = having shepherding Word
  • Having Holy Spirit
    Judges 14:6
    14:6 And the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and he tore the lion apart as one would have torn apart a young goat, though he hadnothing in his hand. But he did not tell his father or his mother what he had done.

    In short, facing the lion, we have to have shepherding Word in anointing of Holy Spirit.
The result of being patient in shepherding with shepherding Word in anointing of Holy Spirit is below:
  • [Judges 14:6] The lion becomes as a young goat, meaning heavy problems and impossible ones will be finished by God.
  • Holy Spirit gives us joy (the description of honey), especially in marriage.
    Judges 14:7-9
    14:7 Then he went down and talked with the woman; and she pleased Samson well.
    14:8 After some time, when he returned to get her, he turned aside to see the carcass of the lion. And behold, a swarm of bees and honey
    werein the carcass of the lion.
    14:9 He took some of it in his hands and went along, eating. When he came to his father and mother, he gave
    someto them, and they also ate. But he did not tell them that he had taken the honey out of the carcass of the lion.

    Maybe our condition has already been rotten as the carcass but there is honey in it as long as we have Holy Spirit.

  • All ropes which bind us (the biggest one is the rope of sin) will be freed by God.
    Judges 15:14
    15:14 When he came to Lehi, the Philistines came shouting against him. Then the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him; and the ropes that wereon his arms became like flax that is burned with fire, and his bonds broke loose from his hands.

  • The Lord gives us the power of victory.
    Judges 15:15
    15:15 He found a fresh jawbone of a donkey, reached out his hand and took it, and killed a thousand men with it.

    The last victory is signed with figure "1000", meaning the victory until we enter the kingdom of peace a thousand year.

    Judges 15:19
    15:19 So God split the hollow place that isin Lehi, and water came out, and he drank; and his spirit returned, and he revived. Therefore he called its name En Hakkore, which is in Lehi to this day.

    Holy Spirit will also revive us to satisfy and strengthen us.

  • Holy Spirit helps us to groan and struggle in lifting up our prayer to the Lord.
    Romans 8:26-27
    8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
    8:27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit
    is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will ofGod.
God blesses you.
