From Pastor Bill Randles Blog….
The core of the Truth is the Incarnation, that God became a man, in the person of Jesus Christ. Heaven and earth cannot reveal this to us, but the Father in heaven testifies to it. The Incarnation of Jesus is the core of Divine revelation, it is the answer to the problem of sin and men’s alienation from God, God became a man, a real man!
The man hanging between heaven and earth on the cross of the curse, and wearing the crown of the very curse of God, was none less than the second person of the Godhead. How could God die? Only by becoming a man.
The Spirit of AntiChrist is keen to ‘spiritualize ” Jesus Christ. This is how the Devil attacks the faith of the church. He denies the incarnation in some way, He seeks to make Jesus into an abstract concept, a symbol, perhaps an exceptional human being but not God in the flesh!
What John literally says in the passage above is “Every Spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come (And remains) in the flesh, is of God”…
