Why Jesus Becomes Flesh as the Son of Man When

He Returns?

In recent years, some people testified on the internet that God has already become flesh again and
expressed words to do the work of judging and purifying man, which has created no small stir in
the religious world. Referring to this, someone posted on the internet: “The four Gospels record
clearly: The Lord Jesus appeared to man for forty days in His spiritual body after His resurrection.
When He ascended, two angels said to the apostles of the Lord Jesus: ‘This same Jesus, which is
taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as you have seen him go into heaven’
(Acts 1:11). The Bible says clearly: The Lord Jesus ascended to heaven in His spiritual body, so
He will certainly come in spiritual body. Therefore, when the Lord Jesus comes again, He cannot
possibly become flesh.”

This question sparked off a big controversy. Some said, “The Lord Jesus will return by becoming
flesh.” Some said, “The Lord Jesus cannot return in fleshly form but in a spiritual body.” These
two different views sound reasonable. However, how on earth will the Lord appear and work when
He comes again? I was very puzzled: Now, many of the prophecies in the Bible have already been
fulfilled and the last days have arrived. If I don’t know how the Lord will appear and work, I won’t
welcome Him. Thinking of these, I was eager to find out the answer. So, I began to explore and
seek with some brothers and sisters in the Lord on the internet.
Thank the Lord for His plan. I met Brother Peter on the internet. Through communication with
him, I learned that he was a Christian who zealously served the Lord for many years. After we
fellowshiped and explored together, I found what he fellowshiped was insightful and enlightening.
So, I told him about my problem. Brother Peter said seriously, “Many brothers and sisters think
that when the Lord returns, He will descend with the clouds, and appear to us in His spiritual body.
In fact, there are not just the prophecies that the Lord will appear in a spiritual body in the Bible.
There are also many prophecies that the return of the Lord will be the ‘coming of the Son of man.’
Such as, ‘For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even to the west; so shall also
the coming of the Son of man be’ (Matthew 24:27). ‘Therefore be you also ready: for in such
an hour as you think not the Son of man comes’ (Mat 24:44). ‘For as the lightning, that
lightens out of the one part under heaven, shines to the other part under heaven; so shall also
the Son of man be in his day. But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this
generation’ (Luck 17:24–25). These prophecies all mention ‘the Son of man comes,’ or ‘the Son
of man descends.’ Speaking of ‘the Son of man,’ it means a person who is born of man and has
normal humanity. The Spirit cannot be called as ‘the Son of man.’ That is to say, the Son of man
refers to God becoming flesh as a man, and He has both a normal humanity and a complete divinity.
Especially these words ‘first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation,’
if God appears in a spiritual body, then it goes without saying He’ll not suffer for it. Because God’s
spiritual body is supernatural and great, and man has no conception of the spiritual body and dare
not go close to it. Only when God is incarnated as the Son of man will He suffer man’s rejection.
Because the Son of man is ordinary in outward appearance, man doesn’t know Him and will have
conception of Him, judging and condemning the incarnate Christ. This is further proof that the
Lord will return in His fleshly form.”

Hearing Brother Peter’s fellowship in connection with the Bible, I understood the meaning of these
verses, and felt somewhat brightened. I thought: In the past, I have read these verses many times,
but why don’t I have such understanding?
At this time, Brother Peter said, “Brother Li, can you understand my sharing?” I said happily,
“Yes, I can.”
Brother Peter continued to fellowship, “Thanks be to God! Let’s go on with our fellowship and
sharing! Actually, if we can further understand why the Lord becomes flesh as the Son of man
when He returns, we will be more certain that the Lord will return by becoming flesh. I saw a
passage of words in a book: ‘God’s saving of man is not done directly through the means of
the Spirit or as the Spirit, for His Spirit can neither be touched nor seen by man, and cannot
be approached by man. If He tried to save man directly in the manner of the Spirit, man
would be unable to receive His salvation. And if not for God putting on the outward form of
a created man, they would be unable to receive this salvation. For man can in no way
approach Him, much like how none could go near the cloud of Jehovah. Only by becoming
a man of creation, that is, putting His word into the flesh He will become, can He personally
work the word into all who follow Him. Only then can man hear for himself His word, see
His word, and receive His word, then through this be fully saved. If God did not become
flesh, no fleshly man would receive such great salvation, nor would a single man be saved. If
the Spirit of God worked directly among man, man would be smitten or completely carried
away captive by Satan because man is unable to associate with God’ (‘The Mystery of the
Incarnation (4)’). From these words, we can see: We can neither see nor touch God’s Spirit, and it
isn’t easy to get close to Him. If God works through the Spirit, we cannot get watering and supply
of the truth, much less gain God’s salvation. Just as the Bible records, ‘And all the people saw the
thunder, and the lightning, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the
people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off. And they said to Moses, Speak you with us, and
we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die’ (Exodus 20: 18–19). ‘Father, glorify
your name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will
glorify it again. The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others
said, An angel spoke to him’ (John 12:28–29). From these verses, we can see: When God speaks
to us in heaven, we cannot understand God’s words, nor accurately grasp His will. Instead, we feel
terrified and afraid, and dare not to get close to God. Besides, if God works through spirit, He will
express God’s majestic and wrathful disposition. Just as in the Age of Law, as long as people
committed sins, they would be burned by the heavenly fire or stoned to death. Because we are all
corrupted by Satan, each and every moment we reveal our corrupt disposition, we can easily be
struck down by God because of offending His disposition, finally we will completely lose the
chance of being saved. By contrast, if God becomes flesh as the Son of man and expresses the
truth from the perspective of humanity, transforming divine language into plain-spoken human
language to supply and lead us, then we can more accurately grasp God’s will and understand His
disposition. For example, when we reveal corrupt dispositions, we will know our disobedience and
corruption through reading God’s words, so that we can stop our steps of doing evil timely. When
we are weak and passive, God’s words will encourage, console and exhort us, giving us faith and
strength. … In short, the Lord’s returning to flesh to work is the most beneficial for the salvation
of mankind, and is for the sake of better saving mankind.”

After I heard Peter’s words, I felt deeply touched. I said to him, “In the past, regarding the Lord’s
return, I always lived in my conceptions and imaginations, expecting that the returned Lord
appears to us in a spiritual body. Not until then was I aware that it is the best way of saving us
corrupt mankind that the Lord becomes flesh as the Son of man to do His work when He comes.
The Lord Jesus was the incarnate Son of man, and what He expressed was all human language we
can understand. Such as, the parable of the sower, the parable of leaven, and the parable of the lost
sheep. These truths have taken root deep inside of us and led the direction of our progress. If we
cannot understand these words expressed by God, how can we know God, get close to Him and
gain His salvation? The Lord prophesied that He would express more truths to do the work of
judgment and purification. God’s Spirit is supreme and holy. So if God does this work in a spiritual
body according to our imaginations, people like us, who often sin and confess every day, live in
the bondage of sins and cannot extricate ourselves from it, must be struck down by God due to our
sin, not to mention being saved and entering the kingdom of heaven. It seems that only when God
becomes flesh as the Son of man, just like the Lord Jesus who was intimate with people, speaks
and works to judge and purify us, can we get God’s salvation, breaking away from sin and being
holy.”

After hearing my words, Peter was moved and said, “You can put aside your notions and
imaginations, realizing that the purpose of God’s second incarnation is to save mankind, this is the
effect of God’s enlightenment and guidance. Thanks be to God! Actually, when God becomes
flesh the second time and does His work, He not only expresses the truth to save mankind, but
does a crucial work—separating the wheat from the tares and the sheep from the goats, separating
all according to their kind, and rewarding the good and punishing the evil. If the Lord does His
work in a spiritual body when He returns, everyone will treat Him respectfully and won’t dare to
resist Him, even the brood of Satan also won’t dare. If so, the Lord will not seize the facts to
separate the good from the evil.

A spiritual book says: ‘The original conceptions of man can only be revealed through their
contrast to the incarnate God. Without the comparison to the incarnate God, the conceptions
of man could not be revealed…’ (‘Corrupt Mankind Is More in Need of the Salvation of God
Become Flesh’). Because many people don’t know the incarnate Christ, they treat Him as an
ordinary man, randomly resisting and condemning God. Whereas some people can humbly seek
though they don’t know the incarnate God, yet they unknowingly get the Holy Spirit’s
enlightenment and illumination and recognize the incarnate Christ. Just as the Lord Jesus said:
‘My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me’ (Jhn 10:27). This way, the
sheep can be separated from the goats, and the wheat can be separated from the tares. If God
doesn’t become flesh to do His work in the last days, we will think of ourselves as the person who
is the most loyal to God, who loves God the most, and who most deserves God’s rewards. It’s
precisely because the returned Lord’s incarnation is normal and practical that the conceptions and
imaginations, rebelliousness and resistance within us are fully exposed. Take when the Lord Jesus
became flesh to work, for example: The Pharisees and the Jewish people saw the Lord Jesus was
normal and ordinary in appearance, so they regarded Him as an ordinary person, wantonly judging,
resisting and condemning Him. They said the Lord Jesus was the son of a carpenter, and that He
cast out devils by Beelzebub, the prince of the devils. They didn’t seek the truth expressed by the
Lord Jesus at all. However, the true believers in God, such as, Peter, John, and Nathanael, they
recognized God’s voice from the work and words of the Lord Jesus, followed Him closely and
obeyed His teachings. We can say that, God does His work in the last days by becoming flesh to
reveal the sheep and the goats, the good servants and the wicked ones, which fully manifests God’s
almightiness and wisdom and His righteous disposition.

After I heard Peter’s sharing, my heart couldn’t calm down for a long time. Previously, I simply
knew that when the Lord comes again, He will reward the good and punish the evil, and separate
the sheep from the goats, but I didn’t know how He will do the work. Until then did I understand:
The Lord will do this work in His fleshly form when He returns, and test whether the believers in
Him are true believers or not by the normal and practical work of the Son of man, so that the good
can be separated from the evil. Such work of God is really too wise and cannot be conceived and
fathomed by man.

After a while, Peter sent me another passage of words: “The first incarnation was to redeem
man from sin through the flesh of Jesus, that is, He saved man from the cross, but the corrupt
satanic disposition still remained within man. The second incarnation is no longer to serve
as a sin offering but to fully save those who were redeemed from sin. This is done so that
those forgiven can be delivered from their sins and be fully made clean, and attain a change
in disposition, thereby breaking free of Satan’s influence of darkness and returning before
the throne of God. Only in this way can man be fully sanctified. … The second incarnation
is sufficient to get rid of the sins of man and fully purify man. Hence, the second incarnation
will bring to a close all the work of God in the flesh and complete the significance of God’s
incarnation. Thereafter, the work of God in the flesh will have entirely come to an end. After
the second incarnation, He will not again become flesh for His work. For His entire
management will have come to an end. In the last days, His incarnation will have fully gained
His chosen people, and all man in the last days will have been divided according to their kind.
He will no longer do the work of salvation, nor will He return to flesh to carry out any work”
(“The Mystery of the Incarnation (4)”). And then he fellowshiped with me, “God’s first incarnation
was to do the work of redemption to redeem us mankind from sin; God’s second incarnation is to
do the work of judgment and purification to thoroughly cleanse and change all His true believers,
so that they can become the people who are in line with His will. When God gains these who He
wants to save, He will do the work of separating all according to their kind and rewarding the good
and punishing the evil. Finally, He will bring all the people perfected by Him to the wonderful
destination. Therefore, God’s two incarnations have completed the entire work of God’s
management plan and completed the significance of His incarnations. Apart from this, there will
be no God’s third or fourth incarnation.”

Hearing Peter’s fellowship and the words in the spiritual book, my problem was finally solved. I
also understood that God’s second incarnation is to do the work of concluding the age and has
completed the significance of God’s incarnations. Since then, God will not be incarnated to do His
work the third or fourth time. Thanks be to God! It seems that it is very important to accept the
work of God’s incarnation of the last days.
