I saw a Child of God in tears and I saw Jesus wipe the tears away very tenderly with His Finger and the tears went into His Heart where He carried them.
And I heard this verse, “In all their affliction He was afflicted, and the Angel of His Presence saved them.”
“Beloved. Do not despair. I AM the God of all Comfort. There is no place so dark that I have not gone there, no pit so deep that your Savior has not set foot in it before you.
“There is no pain so great that I did not carry it for you. Know that I have born your sufferings, all your afflictions have become Mine.
“This is the Perfect Sympathy, that We are One in all your heartache and physical pain. I bear your burdens and fight your battles. I AM the God of all Compassion, Dear One.
“The Sinless One has born the sins of men upon My Heart and I have felt your afflictions as if they were My Own. At the Cross, the Son of God felt forsaken as you do at times, My Child.
“But know this. The Son was not forsaken and you are not forsaken, My Precious One. Therefore come boldly to the Throne of Grace in your time of need, for you shall receive mercy and find My Grace.
“I have redeemed you, called you by name, You are Mine. I saw that there was no man who could save you, so I saved you Myself.
“When there is no man to sustain you, I will sustain you. When there is no intercessor, My Arm will bring you salvation.
“In all your afflictions, I was afflicted so that you may have peace and wholeness. Fear not, Beloved. I have not forgotten you. I will never forsake you.
“I AM the Father of Compassion. I will sustain you in this life and lift you up and carry you and deliver you and wipe every tear from your eye.”

“In all their affliction He was afflicted, and the Angel of His Presence saved them; in His love and in His pity He redeemed them; He lifted them up and carried them all the days of old,” Isaiah 63:9.
“And He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore His Arm brought salvation unto him; and His righteousness, it sustained him,” Isaiah 59:16.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, Who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.…” 2 Corinthians 1:3-4.
“For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need,” Hebrews 4:15-16.
“Surely He has borne our griefs (sickness) And carried our sorrows;(pain, physical and mental) Yet we esteemed Him stricken,Smitten by God and AFFLICTED.5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed,” Isaiah 53:4.
