304 The Coming of the Son of Man Exposes All People

Verse 1

Prior to your contact with Christ,

you may feel your disposition’s changed,

that you follow Him loyally,

you’re most worthy of His blessings.

Having traveled so many roads,

done much work, and brought forth much fruit,

you believe you’ll become someone

who receives the crown in the end.


Pre-chorus 1

Yet there’s one truth you do not know

that man’s corrupt disposition,

man’s rebellion and resistance

are all exposed when they see Christ.


Chorus

The coming of Christ has revealed

all the rebellion of mankind

and thrown man’s nature

into sharp relief.


Verse 2

It’s ’cause Christ is the Son of man

who has normal humanity

that man does not honor Him

and that man does not respect Him.

It’s because God lives in the flesh

man’s rebellion’s seen whole, vivid.

It’s like “luring tigers down the hill,”

“luring a wolf out of its cave.”


Pre-chorus 2

Dare you say you’re loyal to God,

or show full obedience to Him?

And dare you presume to say

you’re not rebellious against Him?


Chorus

The coming of Christ has revealed

all the rebellion of mankind

and thrown man’s nature

into sharp relief.


Verse 3

Once with Christ, your self-importance

will slowly show through your ways, words.

Your discontent will be revealed,

also your excessive desires.

Your arrogance will get greater

until you are at odds with Christ,

just as water is with fire,

then your nature will be opened wide.


Pre-chorus 3

You still deny your rebellion,

think this tough Christ’s hard to accept,

and that you would fully submit

if He was a kinder Christ.


Chorus

The coming of Christ has revealed

all the rebellion of mankind

and thrown man’s nature

into sharp relief.


Verse 4

You think there’s just cause for revolt,

you do it just when pushed too much.

Not once have you thought, you have failed

to obey and see Christ as God.

Rather, you stubbornly insist on

Christ working with your wishes,

and as soon as He doesn’t do this,

you think, He’s not God but human.


Pre-chorus 4

Are there not many among you

who have vied with Him in this way?

Who is it that you believe in?

And you choose to seek in what way?


Chorus

The coming of Christ has revealed

all the rebellion of mankind

and thrown man’s nature

into sharp relief.
