The Reason Why God Came in the Flesh
When we see sacred paintings of Christ, the glorious image of His countenance is divinely pictured. Then, 2,000 years ago, what did people think of Jesus? What did they think of the Church that Jesus established? What did they think of the good news of the heavenly kingdom that Jesus preached? Without thinking of these matters, we cannot say we really know Christ.
Have you ever thought that Jesus' Second Coming in the Flesh? According to the Bible, this fact is clearly testified. Let's look into it.
Christ is God Himself in nature (Php 2:5), and Mighty God the Father (Isa 9:6). However, the Jews tried to stone Jesus to death when He said, "I and the Father are one." According to the law of Moses, he who profaned God had to be put to death. They thought that Jesus committed blasphemy by saying that.
The God of heaven came into this earth and introduced Himself. However, the people, who claimed to serve God, tried to kill Him when He came in the flesh; finally they crucified the One whom they claimed to believe.
It's an irony that they executed God whom they'd worshiped. When we look into the background of this terrible event, we come to know that the religious leaders of those times didn't know God well. Actually they had a god of their own imaginations. They did not have spiritual knowledge of God that He could appear in any form, even in the bodily flesh of man just like one of them.
Then, why did God come in the flesh? Through a short story, let's find the will of God-the reason why He came in the flesh.
