Matt 27:32-33 say, Now as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name. Him they compelled to bear His cross.
Christ endured the beatings and suffered many injuries as they brought Jesus out and forced Simon to bear the cross to golgotha where Jesus entered into His glory and resurrection. Could it be that the beatings and the mockery that man endures, is forcing his arms to wrap around the cross and enter back into the glory he had with the Father from the foundations of the world? So it was with Christ, so it shall be with us! The enemy is man’s guide to the glory of God! If the rulers of the age had known what they were doing for God, they wouldn’t have crucified the Lord of Glory! Let the enemy serve you today and bring you into the face of Christ! If you are being beaten or mocked, rejoice, it only confirms that you are in the image of God! You are Christ’s on the earth as He is “The Christ” in the heavens!
