179 Only When God Becomes Flesh Can Man Be His Intimate

I

Only when God humbles Himself to a certain point,

which is to say, only when God becomes flesh,

can man be His intimate and confidant,

be His intimate and confidant.

God is of the Spirit, God is of the Spirit,

who is so exalted and unfathomable;

how are people qualified to be His intimates?

Only when the Spirit of God descends into the flesh,

and becomes a created being with the same exterior as man,

can people understand His intentions

and be gained by Him in a practical way.


II

God speaks and works in the flesh,

shares in the joys, sorrows, and tribulations of humankind,

lives in the same world as man, protects and guides them,

and through this He cleanses people

and allows them to gain His salvation and His blessing.

Only when people have gained these things

and truly understood God’s intentions can they be the intimates of God.

Only this is practical, only this is practical.

If God were invisible and intangible to people,

how could they be His intimates?

Is this not empty doctrine?
