I wonder whether everyone has thought about such a question: God is supreme, why must He come from heaven above to the earth and work among men as the Son of man? Can’t God’s Spirit directly do the salvation work? Today, let’s discuss and communicate together to look for the answer to this question.
The Bible records, “And he said, I beseech You, show me Your glory. And He said, … You can not see My face: for there shall no man see Me, and live” (Exo 33: 18-20).
“And all the people saw the thunder, and the lightning, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off. And they said to Moses, Speak you with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die”(Exo 20:18-19).
God says, “God’s saving of man is not done directly using the method of the Spirit and the identity of the Spirit, for His Spirit can neither be touched nor seen by man, neither can man draw near. If He tried to save man directly using the perspective of the Spirit, man would be unable to receive His salvation. If God did not put on the outward form of a created man, there would be no way for man to receive this salvation. For man has no way of approaching Him, much as no one was able to go near the cloud of Jehovah. Only by becoming a created human being, that is, only by putting His word into the body of flesh that He is about to become, can He personally work the word into all who follow Him. Only then can man personally see and hear His word, and moreover enter into possession of His word, and by this means come to be fully saved.”
From these verses and God’s words, we see that we have no way of approaching God’s Spirit. God is holy yet we are sinful. If God’s spirit directly appears to people, no one can survive. Only when God puts on flesh and becomes a man, can people come close to Him. And only when God expresses the truth to supply us through becoming flesh can we receive the complete salvation of God.
