TOPIC : EN-ROUTE TO THE CROSS (PART 2)


Scripture: John 19: 17. And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:

Beloved, The journey to the cross cost Jesus betrayal, rejection, painful torture, mockery and insult before finally
crucified on the cross. Today en-route to cross is the bearing of the cross to Golgotha/ Calvary.

In continuation of our redemption story, Jesus was spat upon, slapped, scourge/whipped and then stripped naked. The next thing they did was to place a crown of thorn on him.
*Matthew 27: 29. And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!*

*What is the implementation of crown of thorn on Jesus?*
In Mark 4:18&19,, Jesus gave a parable that made us to understand that thorns represent “cares of this world and deceitfulness of riches and lust”! And this is was placed on Jesus.

Beloved, Jesus took care of that worries you are worrying right now! Yes He did! The deceitfulness of riches that should have stopped you from serving the Lord has also been handled by Jesus. Lust for this of this world should not be a challenge to you because Jesus took it out of the way. Are you being tormented by lust of the flesh or lust of the eyes? Jesus paid the penalty for you.

Now, the whip, a crown of thorn came on His head, then in that weak status He was asked to bear His cross. He carry the cross and fell under the weight of the cross! If Jesus had died in that process, redemption wouldn’t have been complete because He has to die on the cross to make it a curse! For it is written curse is everyone that is hang on a tree( Gal.3;13; Deut 21:22-23).

So, Jesus was made a curse for us when He was crucified on the cross. But the journey from City center to Golgotha/ Calvary was not an easy journey if not for the intervention of an African man named Simon, he came right on time to help him bear the cross to Golgotha/ Calvary, the outskirts of the town. The Passion Translation(TPT) render it thus:
*Matthew 27:32 And as they came out of the city, me they stopped an African man named Simon, from Libya, and compelled him to carry the cross for Jesus.
( TPT
)*

Observed from the above scripture that Simon was compelled to bear the cross. The likes of Simon are people that are refers to as burden bearer class of destiny helpers. They have the following characteristics:
1. They are sent! Beloved, are you in a season when what you are carrying is just too heavy for you to bear. The bill to pay, burden of school fees, fending for your family because there’s no more resources as before! Infact, you are almost collapsing like Jesus was fainting under the burden of the cross until God sent Simon. I have a good news for you today, God is sending you help from unexpected quarters.
2. They are compelled: Beloved, this is another good news that God will be compelling your destiny helpers to help you. They might not like you, but when God compelled them, they don’t have options than to help you.
3. They bear your burden without any complains; Simon bear the cross to Golgotha/Calvary, he never murmur for doing it. So also, shall God send you a helper that will not murmur or tired of helping you to bear your burden in the name of Jesus.
