God, Christ Ahnsahnghong coming as a stumbling stone
What did the Bible prophesy about the appearance of God who would come in the flesh?
Isa 53:1-2 Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed? He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
Isaiah 53 is a prophecy about Jesus who would suffer, bearing our sin
This prophecy described Jesus as a root out of the dry ground. and nothing in his appearance that people should desire him.
The Bible predicted that God would come, taking on a humble appearance, contrary to people's expectations.
Nevertheless, if we try to recognize Christ through the flesh, can we receive him? No, we cannot!
So the Bible prophecies that those who focus only on the God's physical will surely fall.
Isa 8:13-15 The LORD Almighty is the one you are to regard as holy, he is the one you are to fear, he is the one you are to dread, and he will be a sanctuary; but for both houses of Israel he will be a stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall. And for the people of Jerusalem he will be a trap and a snare. Many of them will stumble; they will fall and be broken, they will be snared and captured."
Here both houses of Israel refer to those who claim to believe in God.
Why does God become a stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall, a trap, and a snare to the people who say they believe in God?
It is because God comes as a human being just like one of us and has nothing in His appearance that makes us admire him.
So, those who only expect God to come with a glorious appearance, cannot help but stumble because of God.
1Pe 2:4-8 As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him-- you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame." Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, "The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone," and, "A stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall." They stumble because they disobey the message--which is also what they were destined for.
Why did Jesus become a stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall?
Because he appeared in such a shabby.
So God destined them not to recognize Christ but stumble.
What testifies that Jesus is Christ?
It is prophecies of the Bible, not his physical life and environment.
Jn 5:39 You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me,
Then, through what should we recognize God who has come in the flesh at this age?
Through the prophecy of the Bible.
In this age, Christ Ahnsahnghong came to the earth according to the Prophecies of the Bible.
If we only focus on his physical aspects, we come to reject him. just as the Jews did 2,000 years ago.
Therefore, we must correctly recognize God who has come in the flesh, through the prediction of the Bible!
