1 Timothy 3: 14-16
1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
Hebrews 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil.
The mystery of the incarnation of God in human form for the redemption of humanity is central to the gospel message of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God our Father, our Savior and Keeper gave existence to us as the Father of all beings. Those who die in Him go to meet Him in heaven.
When you look at His works, you see coordination, you see perfection, you see beauty and glory. You marvel at His power and wonder at His wisdom, knowledge and understanding. The angels have spent eternity wondering about Him. Their wonders make them see newness in Him. They praise and bow before Him in total worship.
When God came into this earth in human form, in the Person of Jesus Christ, He took the form of a man. The disciples, especially the twelve that were always with Him, spent their time marveling. They were marveling at His ways, which were unique and wonderful. They were wondering about His works.
They saw His commanding authority; they saw His acts of mercy; they saw the manifestation of His authority over all created beings and nature; they saw His exercise of authority over demons and Satan; they saw His healing power and they continued to wonder.
When He walked on water, they marveled and asked themselves, “Who is this Person that even the sea, the waves, the winds obey Him? Who exactly is this Person!” He made the blind to see. When He spoke the dumb opened their mouth and spoke, and they kept on wondering.
When He came back from the grave after His resurrection from the dead and ascended up to heaven, this was also a great wonder to them because nothing like it has ever happened. Brother, Sister, you are dealing with a God of wonder and astonishment, in the Person of Jesus Christ of Nazareth!
