|Thorns also and thistles will it bring forth to you; and you will eat the herb of the field.|
Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And [Pilate] saith unto them, Behold the man! John 19:5
Something struck me about this crown yesterday. I'm sure I'm not the only one to see it (in fact I know I'm not, Wikipedia mentions it) but it got me to thinking about the curse.
There is many things I can't quite put into words, but it's there.
He was wearing a crown of thorns, a symbol of the curse.
He was before all and created all.
God cursed the ground.
God send his son, a son of Spirit and of Man to bear the curse upon Himself.
He started all this and He will make it right.
It was no mistake.
He knows what He is doing.
When it is over, or at least when a new chapter begins, as I don't think it ever ends (Ephesians 3:21), we will understand more, maybe someday all of it. I know scripture speaks of the prophets and angels even wanting to look into these things.
God tells the adversary after he had tempted the woman:
Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
Behold the Man!
