198 The Significance of God’s Two Incarnations

Verse 1

The first incarnation redeemed man from sin

by means of Jesus’ fleshly body.

He saved man from the cross, but in man there remained

the corrupt satanic disposition.

The second incarnation’s not as a sin offering,

but to fully save those who were redeemed.

Chorus 1

So those who’ve been forgiven are delivered

from their sins and they are made fully clean;

by attaining a changed disposition,

they may break free from Satan’s dark influence,

and they may return before God’s throne.

Man can be holy in this way only.

Verse 2

God can only live with men, know the world’s suffering

by becoming normal flesh Himself.

Only this way can He give them the way

which they need as created beings.

Through God’s incarnation man receives full salvation,

not straight from heaven in answer to prayers.

Chorus 2

Being flesh and blood, man can’t see God’s Spirit,

and, as flesh and blood, much less can man approach Him.

People can only come into contact

with God when He is flesh incarnate.

Only this way can man grasp all the ways

and all the truths and receive full salvation.

Bridge

Man’s sins will be purged, he’ll be purified

sufficiently by the second incarnation.

God’s work in the flesh will from then on cease,

He’ll complete the meaning of His incarnation.

His entire management will have come to an end.

He will not become flesh in a third incarnation.

Chorus 3

Through the incarnation of the last days,

His chosen people will be fully gained,

and in the last days the whole of mankind

will have been classed according to kind.

He will no longer do His salvation work,

or return to the flesh to carry out any work.
