171 God Incarnate Is More Suited to the Work of Salvation

Verse 1

God does His judgment work in the last days

appearing as His incarnate self.

Since it’s man of corrupt flesh being judged,

not Satan’s spirit directly,

judgment isn’t done in the spiritual world,

but in the world of human beings.

If judgment were done by God’s Spirit directly,

it wouldn’t be all-embracing.

The work would be hard for man to accept,

for the Spirit can’t come face-to-face with man.

Effects wouldn’t come fast, much less could man see clearly

God’s unoffendable disposition.

Chorus

No one is better than God in the flesh

for the work of judging the corruption of man’s flesh.

Oh, no one is better than God in the flesh

for the work of judging the corruption of man’s flesh.

Verse 2

Satan can only be beaten if God in the flesh

judges the corruption of mankind.

Though having normal humanity like man,

He can directly judge man’s unrighteousness;

this marks His innate holiness

and also His extraordinariness.

Only God’s in the place where He can judge man,

for He has the truth and righteousness.

No one without them is fit to judge.

If this work were done by God’s Spirit,

it would not mean Satan’s defeat.

Pre-chorus

The Spirit’s more exalted than mortal man.

He is holy and triumphant over flesh.

If the Spirit did the work directly,

He couldn’t judge all man’s rebellion,

nor reveal all man’s evil.

Chorus

No one is better than God in the flesh

for the work of judging the corruption of man’s flesh.

Oh, no one is better than God in the flesh

for the work of judging the corruption of man’s flesh.

Bridge

The judgment is done through man’s notions of God,

and man has no notions of the Spirit,

so the Spirit can’t show man’s unrighteousness,

much less disclose it completely.

God incarnate is the foe of anyone

who doesn’t possess knowledge of Him.

Through judging man’s notions and defiance,

He shows mankind’s disobedience.

His work in the flesh has more striking effects

than those of the work of the Spirit.

So judgment’s not done by the Spirit directly,

but is the work of God incarnate.

Chorus

No one is better than God in the flesh

for the work of judging the corruption of man’s flesh.

Oh, no one is better than God in the flesh

for the work of judging the corruption of man’s flesh.

Outro

God in the flesh can be seen and touched by man.

God in the flesh can completely conquer man.

In his relationship with God in the flesh,

man goes from defiance to obedience,

from persecution to acceptance,

from notions to knowledge, rejection to love.

These are the effects of God incarnate’s work.
