Over the centuries since the Lordresurrected and ascended to heaven, we believers have yearned eagerly for Jesus the Savior's return. Most people believe that it will be the spiritual body of the resurrected Jesus that will appear to us when the Lord returns. But why has God appeared to man incarnating as the Son of man in ? says, "If God does not become flesh, He remains the Spirit both invisible and intangible to man. Man is a creature of flesh, and man and God belong to two different worlds and are different in nature. The Spirit of God is incompatible with man of flesh, and no relations can be established between them...." "Only through becoming flesh can He personally deliver His words to the ears of all so that all who have ears can hear His words and receive His work of by the word. Only such is the result achieved by His word ..." (The Word Appears in the Flesh).
