Only lately have I understood what great reward Jesus got from sacrifying himself for humanity. I had long struggled to understand why God let Jesus to be killed so atrociously. I had thought that Jesus could have been killed in a more painless way and any way become a sacrifice for our sins. So what was the point of all the torture he had to experience? Of course that was a defeat for Satan, that Jesus endured all that. And Jesus was really troubled for the way he would be killed. Luke12:50 Indeed, I have a baptism with which to be baptized, and how I am distressed until it is finished. That he said,I don't know how many days before his death. And the last night before his death he said: Mark14: 33 And he took Peter and James and John along with him, and he began to feel deeply distressed and to be greatly troubled. 34 He said to them: “I am deeply grieved, even to death. Stay here and keep on the watch.” 35 And going a little way forward, he fell to the ground and began praying that, if it were possible, the hour might pass away from him. 36 And he said: “Abba, Father, all things are possible for you; remove this cup from me. Yet, not what I want, but what you want. So what great reward did Jesus get from God that more than well compensated for his sufferings? Philipians2: 9 For this very reason, God exalted him to a superior position and kindly gave him the name that is above every other name, 10 so that in the name of Jesus every knee should bend—of those in heaven and those on earth and those under the ground— 11 and every tongue should openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father. John 5:22 For the Father judges no one at all, but he has entrusted all the judging to the Son, 23 so that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him So if Jehovah God had exalted Jesus to that position without him going through such sufferings, some angels might have thought they could instead of Jesus gone to earth to sacrifice their life and get that elevated position Jesus now has got. But they all knew the sufferings the Messiah must go through, because it was all foretold in Isaiah 53. And I think all the angels in heaven are grateful that Jesus took that extremely painful mission so that they did not have to do that.
