“The Mystery of Godliness: The Sequel” (1) – How Will the Lord Appear to Man When He Comes Again?

Introduction

Over the centuries since the Lord Jesus resurrected and ascended to heaven, we believers have yearned eagerly for Jesus the Savior’s return. Most people believe that it will be the spiritual body of the resurrected Jesus that will appear to us when the Lord returns. But why has God appeared to man incarnating as the Son of man in the last days? Almighty God says, “If God does not become flesh, He remains the Spirit both invisible and intangible to man. Man is a creature of flesh, and man and God belong to two different worlds and are different in nature. The Spirit of God is incompatible with man of flesh, and no relations can be established between them….” “Only through becoming flesh can He personally deliver His words to the ears of all so that all who have ears can hear His words and receive His work of judgment by the word. Only such is the result achieved by His word …” (The Word Appears in the Flesh).

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God, and the Word became flesh.” This (the work of the appearance of the Word in the flesh) is the work that God will accomplish in the last days, and is the final chapter of His entire management plan, and so God has to come to earth and manifest His words in the flesh.

Relevant Words of God:

Christ is the flesh donned by the Spirit of God. This flesh is unlike any man that is of the flesh. This difference is because Christ is not of flesh and blood but is the incarnation of the Spirit. He has both a normal humanity and a complete divinity. His divinity is not possessed by any man. His normal humanity sustains all His normal activities in the flesh, while His divinity carries out the work of God Himself. Be it His humanity or divinity, both submit to the will of the heavenly Father. The substance of Christ is the Spirit, that is, the divinity. Therefore, His substance is that of God Himself; this substance will not interrupt His own work, and He could not possibly do anything that destroys His own work, nor would He ever utter any words that go against His own will. … Continue reading “What are the essential differences between the incarnate God and those people who are used by God?”
