"Just as there were many who were appalled at him - his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any man, and his form marred beyond human likeness."(Isaiah 52:14) In other words, they beat him so badly you would never recognize him, and he did nothing wrong. And that's what God the Father did to God the Son. The atoning sacrifice, vicarious atonement, the propitiation for the sin of mankind. It had to have pained the Father as it did the Son, and why? Because he loves us and and by his suffering satisfied the demands of the law that we might be redeemed from the laws demands. And what does he ask? Recognize me for who "I Am", and know "I Am" your Redeemer. Is it really such a hard thing, having accepted him as Savior, to now live for him as our Lord and King.
