About 2 000 years ago, Jesus came into this world leaving behind all His glory and His throne of heaven in order to save all mankind.

However, at that time, many Israelites who claimed to believe in God and believe in the coming of the Messiah did not welcome Jesus when He came into this world.
Contrary to their expectations, His life did not seem worthy to be praised and respected. For this reason, He was not welcome.

They thought that He would come into this world as the King of kings and the Lord of lords.
They also thought that everyone would recognize and welcome Him even if He came to this earth in the flesh.

Since the Israelites were under the oppression of the Roman empire in those days, they expected the Messiah to destroy the Romans, accomplish outstanding achievements, and perform miracles for the people of Israel who believed in God.
However, Christ appeared in a way that was completely contrary to their expectations.

The Bible testifies that the providence of God is different from the thoughts of man just as the heavens are different from the earth.

What mankind considers a good way to save all mankind is completely different from what God considers a good way to save all mankind.
Since Jesus looked just like one of the Israelites, living an ordinary life, His appearance and lifestyle were contrary to their thoughts.

He knew that certain situations would cause people to fall away.
That is why He said "blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me." (Mt11:6)

Jesus lived his life the same way we live our lives.
His father was Joseph, His mother was Mary, and He also had physical brothers and sisters.
Since this was his surrounding life, many people thought, "How can this mere man be God?", "How can someone from Galilee become a prophet?".
The Israelites did not even consider Jesus to be at the level of a prophet.

This is why Jesus said "Instead of trying to understand the spiritual world through My physical appearance, you should look at Me with spiritual eyes of faith. then you will understand why I am doing all these works."

Jesus entered Jerusalem while riding on a little colt and He proclaimed the new covenant with bread and wine in Mark's upper room.
He fulfilled all these things in accordance with the prophecies already written in the Bible.
However, people in those days who claimed to believe in God waiting for the messiah to come did not realize these prophecies were being fulfilled.

What did prophet Hosea say will happen to God's people who lack knowledge?
He said "God's people will be destroyed from lack of knowledge." (Ho1:6)

    If God had not come to this earth in human form, salvation would not have been accomplished.
    Coming as a human being is God's plan of salvation. Therefore, it does not matter whether we acknowledge God as a man or not. However, if whoever does not acknowledge and accept God by that reason, he will have great regrets. Let's not do wrong. Let's have salvation by receiving God in the flesh.

    Jesus is the Almighty God.
    If Jesus wanted it, when He came to this earth 2000 years ago, He showed a power that people would not dare to look up to, and He would have made anyone to fear and believe in Him.
    However, God wanted His children to know God through the prophecies of the Bible rather than realizing and believing God through visible signs, wonders, and powers.
    The reason is to distinguish between the children of God who receive God through the word through the process and the evil spirits who should not be saved.
    Just like the teaching that God's people listen to God's Word, let's become all of us who can find and understand Elohim God who has come as the Holy Spirit and the Bride through the Word of God recorded in the Bible, and who can keep our faith until the end.
