In Genesis 1:26, God decided to make human flesh in His image and likeness, and without wasting much time He got down to work and Genesis 2:7 clearly shows how he made human beings from the dust of the earth and afterward blew the breathe of life into his nostrils before he became a living soul.
Without a reasonable doubt, God is the architect of the earth and all that is in it, but then He Himself does not reside on earth as He reveals in Isaiah 66:1, that heaven is His throne and the earth is His footstool.
Realistically, every human beings are conceived when the spermatozoa of a man is able to fertilize the egg of a woman when she’s having her ovulation. And when the month is due, a human being is born into the world.
Now the idea of God as a creator taking on human flesh sounds so absurd to so many who cannot accept that God could stoop so low But after reading this religious discourse about when God becomes flesh you will really get to understand why God decided to undergo such process.
So without wasting much time, let’s get to this article.
What it means when God is in human flesh.
When God is in human flesh means that the creator Himself was incarnated into the world and as it clearly states in 1 Timothy 3:16, God was manifested in the human flesh, vindicated in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached among the nations, believed on in the world and taken up to glory.
It is worth noting that this manifestation of God was seen in a Jewish prophet who was known as Jesus Christ of Nazareth. In John 1:14 the Bible calls Him the Word Who was made flesh and dwelt among human flesh.
How do we know that Jesus is God in the flesh?
The Holy Bible also known as the word of God is the source that helps us to know that Jesus is God in the flesh. One of the Bible authors known as John the beloved who was among the twelve disciples of Jesus makes a perfect description of how Jesus is God in the flesh in the first chapter of his book.
John begins his writing by revealing that in the beginning was the word and the word was God, and it was through the word that God created everything we see in the world.
It is worth noting that John uses personification to describe the word in his book, and claims says that himself came as a witness to confirm that the true light that gives life to everyone was coming into the world.
And he goes on to testify that even though this light came to his own people , they still did not receive him, and the very few who received him were given the power to become the children of God.
The most important aspect of John testifying about Jesus being God in the flesh can be seen in verse 18 where he clearly states that: “No one has ever seen God, nut the one and only son, who is himself God”.
Why Jesus is called the word made flesh.
Jesus is called the word made flesh because even though he was the word that God used to create everything in the world, he decided to incarnated into the world as a human being.
The creation story in the book of Genesis helps us to understand that God uttered a word before anything came into existence.
For example in Genesis 1:3, God said let there be light and there was light. But to those who have the spiritual understanding, when God said let there be light, the light did not immediately spring up rather Jesus as the word began the process of creating the light.
And after he finished creating the light, God came and inspected it, gave the light a name “day” and the darkness “night”.
Now what brings the confusion here is that after each creation the evening will pass and the morning will always come and the Bible will call it the first day. This then makes it impossible for people to believe that Jesus would be able to finish a particular creation in a single day.
But the Bible helps us to understand in 1 Peter 3:8 and Psalm 90:4 that God does not understand the passing of day and night as we humans do here on earth because a thousand days is like one day to him and vice versa.
Logically, we all know that everywhere in the world does not experience day and night at the same time. And science helps us to understand that it is the position of the searth as it rotates around the sun that that causes the changes in day and night.
And that will help you to come to the knowledge that it might have took Jesus a thousand years to finish a particular creation, but God will always call it one day.
Why did Jesus come in the flesh?
Jesus came in the flesh in order to reconcile mankind to God as we can see in 2 Corinthians 5:18-20 because mankind and God separated when our first parents, Adam and Eve disobeyed God and was evicted from the Garden of Eden.
The highest point of this reconciliation is that God has made it possible for mankind to return back to His original plan of enjoying an everlasting bliss in a place where they will never get to suffer nor die again.
When God and human beings separated, the curse that they will return back to the dust from whence they came took an effect on them.
But understanding that mankind is not made of flesh alone but also has a spirit which is the breathe of life God blew into his nostrils for him to become a living soul, we now come to the full knowledge that after the flesh returns to dust. the spirit has an opportunity to live forever with God if it was able to obey Him as He expected their first parents to do.
