“‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
for out of you will come a ruler
who will shepherd my people Israel.’”
Hallelujah! I bid you the love of the eternal Holy Father God and the peace of the Holy Son.
4000 years after Adam, God sent the Messiah to this earth according to THE PROMISE OF THE OLD TESTAMENT. As a result, ‘the King of Peace, King of Salvation, King of Love, and King of Truth’ was born on this earth. That person was ‘Jesus.’
The Holy Son is an Almighty Being and Jesus was a human being. Since the Almighty Holy Son is spirit and invisible, He came taking Jesus, who was in the flesh, as His body.
Jesus was ‘the Messiah’ that God and the Holy Son had sent. Jesus the Messiah, who was sent by God, was conceived by the Holy Spirit in a woman [named] Mary and came as a 'human being.' God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son carried out [Their Will] while showing peace, salvation, love, and truth to this earth through ‘Jesus.’
However, the Jewish religious people, who had believed in God and waited for God to come for the 4000 years of the Old Testament, thought that since they believed in God, [God] Himself would come in a way they could see with their eyes and claimed, “God will come from the heavens riding on the clouds.” For that reason, they dealt with Jesus without even thinking at all that Jesus could be the Messiah.
In fact, God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son had come from Heaven. However, since They are ‘spirits,’ They could not be seen with the physical eyes and it was also not proper [for human beings] to see Them. Therefore, the Trinity did not show Their original entities. The body sees things of the body. Hence, [the Trinity] had [people] listen to God’s Word and see God’s works through seeing ‘Jesus’ who was sent by the Trinity.
Since the Jewish religious people believed in God, they perceived incorrectly that the Almighty God would come visibly like a human being. Therefore, since God was not visible but instead appeared through Jesus, they rejected Jesus.
It is the same with those who believe in and wait for Jesus in this time period. Since they believe in Jesus, they think that, when Jesus comes for the Advent, he will come like a human being in a way that is visible to the physical eyes. They believe that he will come just like 2000 years ago when he appeared as a human being and did his work.
They wait [for Jesus] perceiving and believing from the same rigid standpoint as that of the Jewish religious people. / As a result, even though the Holy Son comes again and appears through a person born in the flesh on earth, they will once again fail to recognize him and will reject him just as the Jewish religious people [did].
In celebration of Christmas, we should feel the time period to be even more real, celebrate the birth of Jesus the Messiah, know and love the Almighty Holy Son who had come through him, and give thanks and glory to God and the Holy Spirit.
Let's renew our determinations, and live receiving the time period perfectly.
