Thorns

Hello, God has given me something in Judges 8:16 which says, “He took the elders of the town and taught the men of Succoth a lesson by punishing them with desert thorns and briers.”

So what God has given me is, that Gideon used thorns to punish the men of Succoth, and that would rip the flesh, what a brutal way to treat a human being, but that is how Jesus was treated, He had a crown of thorns put on His head, just like the men of Succoth we would have been punished for our sin, but Jesus took the brutal punishment instead of us, so that we don’t have to. Jesus died on the cross, and had a crow of thorns put around His head, how much crueller can these people get? But on top of the punishment He bore for us, He had His own father turn His head, and reject Him! And to think, we would have taken that punishment, but the perfect son of God did.
