God Became Man: Do You Believe This?

Infinite and yet an infant.

Eternal and yet born of a woman.

Almighty, and yet nursing at a woman’s breast.

Supporting a universe, and yet needing to be carried in a mother’s arms.

Heir of all things, and yet the carpenter’s despised son.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

That man should be made in God’s image is a wonder,

but that God should be made in man’s image is a greater wonder.

That the Ancient of Days would be born.

That He who thunders in the heavens should cry in the cradle?

—Thomas Watson

Man’s Maker was made man

that the Bread might be hungry,

the Fountain thirst,

the Light sleep,

the Way be tired from the journey;

that Strength might be made weak,

that Life might die.

—Augustine

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,

and we have seen his glory,

glory as of the only Son from the Father,

full of grace and truth.”

(John 1:14)

  1. God is never made in man’s image. It is the other way round. People also wanted to make an image of God , Though He did not want that. god forbid people to make images of God, but they created over the years many gods and made many images of gods. They even took God His son to make him a higher god, and used the sign of Tamuz, the god of evil, as the symbol for him. In front of those crucifixes people pray to God, which is an abomination to God. Many people created statues and paintings of the Son of God and the Son of men, to pray in front of them and say that this man who died is not really a man but God. Than they forget that God is a spirit who had no beginning and no end, can not die and is eternal, so would than have faked a death and would have proofed nothing.
    The real Jesus, the Nazarene Jeshua, son of Miriam (Mary/Maria) and Joseph from the tribe of king David, died for all people, never have claimed to be God, but always telling people only to honour his and our Father, and that is what Christians (followers of Christ) should do.
    Man’s Maker was made man by man, but those who believe in the One and Only god should only adhere to One God and not a Trinity and pray “Our Father”.
