God Coming as a Stumbling Stone

2021-07-23 12:56
The Bible predicted that God would come, taking on a humble appearance, contrary to people's expectations.
What if they keep insisting that God should only come with a glorious appearance?

Isa 8:13~15
The LORD almighty ... 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. ...

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's because God comes as a human being just like one of us and leads an ordinary life, having nothing in His appearance that makes us admire Him. So, they cannot help but stumble because of God.

Actually, the Jews who only looked at the physical aspects of Jesus' life and environment failed to believe in Him.
So, Peter said that God destined them not to recognize Christ but stumble.

Jn 5:39 ... These are the Scriptures that testify about me[Jesus]...

Through what should we recognize God who has come in the flesh?
We must correctly recognize God who has come in the flesh, through the prophecies of the Bible.

    God's life and environment are nothing to people believe the prophecies about God. On the other hands, those who do not believe the prophecies about God absolutely, they fail to believe in God. We have to follow the words of God give the eternal life. The Bible prophesied and pointed out Christ Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother

    There'll be great difference between who receive God in the flesh and who who don't. No one will despise God when He appears in His glory. But, God appeared in the flesh and people scorned Him. He walked that way so that He might seek and save His people. His people listened to what the Bible says, not to the thoughts from men.
    According to the prophecies of the Bible, Christ Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother came to us with the free gift of the water of life. No one will be saved unless the listens to what They have said!

    2000 years ago, Jews were waiting for the Messiah, the Savior, who would rescue them from the oppression of the Roman government. Jesus came to Israel to save His people and preached gospel for 3 years, but they did not recognize Jesus as God or the savior. Then, why was that? It was because that they focused on only the physical life of Jesus, not the prophetical things which Jesus would do. That's why they failed to believe in Jesus. In the same way, in this age, so many churches refuse to accept Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother who the Bible completely testifies about. However, the Bible tells us that only those who have prophetical eyes to see the prophecies of the Bible can realize and accept that Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother are our saviors coming to save Their people.

    We must not believe in only the visible. We need to ask God to open our spiritual eyes to realize God with correct understanding.

    2000 years ago, many Jews failed to recognize Jesus even though He came as Messiah according to the prophecies of Bible. It's because they thought that God cannot come in the flesh.

    [John 10:33] “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.”

    They even crucified Jesus on the cross.

    It's prophesied that Christ would appear a second time to bring salvation (Hebrews 9:27-28.)

    We cannot get salvation if we fail to meet the Second Coming Christ.
    Christ Ahnsahnghong has come as the Second Coming Jesus because He fufilled all prophecies of the Bible. However, many people would not believe in Christ Ahnsahnghong just because He came in the flesh. They are not different from the Jews who rejected Jesus by saying " you, a mere man, claim to be God".

    Let's focus on the Bible and receive Christ Ahnsahnghong who accomplished all prophecies of the Bible regarding the Second Coming Jesus including the prophecy of King David, the prophecy of the fig tree and many others.

    The appearance of God coming to this earth as the Savior was completely different from what people expected. People thought that God would appear in a form of great power and glory that they dare not look up to. However, the Bible prophesied that He would come in a humble form different from what they thought. That is why many people did not receive Jesus, who came as the stone . that causes men to stumble. We, who are living in this last age, must not repeat such mistakes. We must diligently study the Bible to find the Christ that the Bible testifies of. In order to get salvation, it is absolutely necessary to realize the Christ who the Bible testifies about and to believe in Him. Let's have absolute faith in the Bible and diligently study its prophecies so that we can realize and receive Christ who will come a second time to give us salvation in this last age.

    The Bible testifies that the reason we cannot see God with the naked eye is because our eyes are covered by our sins. Therefore, God who comes in the flesh for our salvation can only be met and received through the prophecies of the Bible. Those who claim to believe in God also fail to receive the Savior who came in the flesh to save us if they do not fully believe the Bible. If we study the Bible diligently with faith, then we can believe that Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother are Gods who came for our salvation.
