And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14
No one has ascended into heaven except he who descended from heaven, the Son of Man. John 3:13
He said to them, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. John 8:23
We cannot know God on our own. We are too small, too insignificant, too finite to know the eternal, infinite, omnipotent Creator. The only way is for Him to make Himself known to us.
God is Spirit. He is eternal, infinite and unlimited. He is not bound within the confines of time and space like you and me.
He created time and space but He exists beyond it. He encompasses everything over and above the dimension of His creatures. He is beyond every dimension we humans can perceive and He is beyond past, present and future. he is not limited by time. He is eternal. He is not limited by space, He is omnipresent.
The question is: Can such an omnipotent, omnipresent God, cause Himself, by His Word and His Spirit, to be incarnated as a limited HUMAN BEING to walk and talk among humans on earth?
Nothing is impossible for God. If anyone says God cannot do this, then you are limiting the Creator’s ability.
Christians believe He can and He HAS! Through Jesus Christ.
Remember that while He incarnated on earth, coming from outside time and space into human time and space in the form of finite human being in , the infinite God, who is eternal Spirit still exists, as He always has, outside of time and space! The eternal and infinite Father depositing His own essence as a finite Son in a human body on earth. He didn’t transform into a human being.
How this can happen is, essentially, the eternal God, added HUMANITY to His DIVINITY. In this way, He is limiting the very essence of who He is within a human body and within the confines of time and space and become and do all that a human being can do, EXCEPT sin, since He is perfectly holy and sinless.
A God who can do this is more awesome and superior and powerful compared to a god who cannot or will not step into his own creation in this manner.
Only a God of absolute love would go to such an extent to reveal Himself in such a way to His own creation so they would know Him in a way that is impossible in any other way.
Yes, any “god” can send prophets and holy men to teach his words to man, but which deity would come personally Himself for you and me? Not one who is too lofty or proud but only One who loves unconditionally.
Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son…
