When Jesus walked this Earth – from birth to His death by crucifixion, He experienced the greatest level of sensitivity and intuition far more than others.. Because of His total submission of Himself to the Father and Holy Spirit, His soulish and spiritual senses were /are far more enhanced . Even as a child, Jesus had a more intense sensitivity.. knowing the Holy Spirit was leading Him to remain behind in the Temple even though Mary and Joseph left with the others back to Nazareth.
Due to the complete sensitivity and intuitiveness of His spirit and soul , Jesus continuously suffered on a level more than any of us know. Even now, He ever suffers this way as He continues to share in every person’s individual pains and heartaches through every age to the end of this Dispensation when He fully sets up His Father’s Kingdom. Knowing this, we can now understand Him when He said, “When you do it to the least of these, My children, you do it to Me.”
Not only as the Son of God, but also as the Son of Man, our Lord is a total complete Empath to the fullest degree. He genuinely shares what another person is experiencing along with them. As the son of Man Who always allowed the Holy Spirit to open His ear morning by morning, His senses were quickened to the fullest measure upon birth.
His great sensitivity cost Him much on a daily basis- especially around the crowds that thronged around Him where He could pick up every emotional vibe coming from every person clamoring for healing or curiosity. He could keenly sense a person’s irritable emotions, nervous energy, cynical disposition, judgemental vibes, impatience, and other attitudes of the unredeemed human soul., This bombardment of everyone’s “energies” is a form of “emotion pollution” that many of us are hardened to., but in which Jesus keenly felt at all times. Still, He did not escape into the “Invisible” to get away from people. His love is such that He faced it daily, at great cost to His own peace yet, nevertheless, willingly as He denied Himself for love of the Father and compassion for others.
You may know of someone who has a greater degree of emotional sensitivity where they can’t stand being around groups of people …wether in a bus, a stadium, a concert or any crowd. They pick up on everyone’s emotional vibes surrounding them and it overwhelms them emotionally. Jesus can relate with the suffering of these people because as Son of Man, He experienced this continuously. He did not seek to escape this suffering, but even in this, He ignored the discomfort for the sake of Love.
The only times He left the crowds was upon hearing the Holy Spirit lead Him to set Himself apart from them so that they could go home and get rest. Climbing a high place, even separating Himself from His disciples, He would pray alone in communion with the Father and be rejuvenated spiritually to again return to His public service amongst the crowds .
We read in John 12:27 His words, “Now My soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save Me from this hour’? No! it is for this purpose that I have come to this hour.”
A clue in scriptures of His keen empathic senses is when the woman with the bleeding issue touched the hem of His robe from behind, and He felt healing come forth from Him to her… and turning around asked who touched Him. She only touched the HEM of His garment, yet He felt her touch, even though crowds thronged Him. The disciples had no clue what He was talking about because they did not have that degree of sensitivity Jesus has.
Mark 9:18-26 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years and had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague. And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the crowd, and said, Who touched my clothes? And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
At Jesus’s trial and crucifixion, it cost our Lord far more than others who experienced the same capital punishment.. as Jesus suffered greatly not only on a physical level, but also on a spiritual and soul level as well. Because of His heightened spiritual and emotional empath senses, He keenly felt all negative energy from those who hated Him spewn onto Himself.. it wasn’t just physical spit coming from them; it was spit from the very energy and vibe they projected on Him.. which He keenly felt. And He was vulnerable to this- stripped naked physically while being pinned by 3″ thick rusty nails on rough cut wood beams.. nailed to one spot as this more intense form of vile bombardment projected onto Him from all surrounding Him in hate. They surrounded Him like possessed jackals. He suffered more than we can realize.. not just on a physical level., but on a level that only an empath person has a tiny hint of.
May Jesus be praised , honored and glorified forever♥♥♥
ps. I asked our King in Exile, if He would allow me His reply from His recorded words to Gabrielle Bossis in “He and I”. I blindly opened up to the following:
“…My soul suffered most among the souls of men and that is why I have the highest glory in Heaven. Do you know why I suffered the most? Because I had the greatest capacity for love.”
