345 God’s Incarnation Is Mainly to Express His Word

Almighty 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” (The Word Appears in the Flesh).

345 God’s Incarnation Is Mainly to Express His Word

Verse 1

Today, man’s knowledge of the practical God

and the significance of incarnation lacks.

When it comes to God’s flesh, through His work and words,

people see God’s Spirit is rich and expansive.

Chorus 1

The actual meaning of the Spirit coming to flesh

is that man may engage with God,

relying on Him and gaining the knowledge of God, of God.

Verse 2

Today you worship this person,

but actually you’re worshiping the Spirit of God.

This is the least that should be achieved

in people’s knowledge of God incarnate:

Chorus 2

knowing the substance of the Spirit through the flesh,

knowing His divine work and human work in the flesh,

accepting the Spirit’s words, seeing how the Spirit

directs the flesh and shows His power in the flesh.

Chorus 1

The actual meaning of the Spirit coming to flesh

is that man may engage with God,

relying on Him and gaining the knowledge of God, of God.

Bridge

God came from heaven to earth to express the words of God

through the flesh, to complete the work of the Spirit.

Man comes to know the Spirit through the flesh.

God’s appearance among man

dispels the vague God in their thoughts.

Verse 3

People turn to worship the practical God,

increasing their obedience to God.

And through His divine work, human work in flesh,

man gets shepherding, revelation, and his disposition changes.

Chorus 1

The actual meaning of the Spirit coming to flesh

is that man may engage with God,

relying on Him and gaining the knowledge of God, of God.
