151 The Work of the Flesh and the Spirit Is of the Same Essence


The incarnate God is called Christ,

and Christ is the flesh donned by the Spirit of God.

This flesh is unlike any man that is of the flesh.

This difference is because Christ is not of flesh and blood;

He’s the incarnation of the Spirit.

He has both a normal humanity and a complete divinity.

His divinity is not possessed by any man.

His normal humanity sustains all His normal activities in the flesh,

while His divinity carries out the work of God Himself.


Be it His humanity or divinity,

both submit to the will of the heavenly Father.

The essence of Christ is the Spirit, that is, the divinity.

Therefore, His essence is that of God Himself;

this essence will not disrupt His own work,

and He could not possibly do anything that destroys His own work,

nor would He ever utter any words that go against His own will.

Therefore, the incarnate God

would absolutely never do any work that disrupts His own management.

This is what all people should understand.


The essence of the work of the Holy Spirit is to save man,

and is for the sake of God’s own management.

Similarly, the work of Christ is also to save man,

and is for the sake of God’s will.

Given that God becomes flesh, He realizes His essence within His flesh,

such that His flesh is sufficient to undertake His work.

All the work of God’s Spirit is replaced by the work of Christ,

replaced by the work of Christ during the time of incarnation,

and at the core of all work throughout the time of incarnation

is the work of Christ, the work of Christ.

It cannot be commingled with work from any other age.

It cannot be commingled with work from any other age.


God is a Spirit and can do the work of salvation,

as can God become man, God become man.

At any rate, God Himself does His own work;

He neither disrupts nor disturbs,

much less does He carry out work that contradicts itself,

for the essence of the work done by the Spirit and the flesh is alike.

Be it the Spirit or the flesh, both work to fulfill one will

and to manage the same work.

Though the Spirit and the flesh have two disparate qualities,

their essences are the same;

both have the essence of God Himself, and the identity of God Himself.
