And the WORD became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld HIS glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the FATHER, full of Grace and Truth.
“Mercy and Truth,” the whole fruit of GOD’s purpose of love towards sinners of mankind, which until now existed only in promise. In HIS person all Grace and Truth which had been floating along in shadowy forms, and darting into the souls of the poor and needy, took everlasting possession of human flesh and filled it full. By HIS incarnation of Grace and Truth, the teaching of thousands of years was at once transcended and GOD clothed Himself into Manhood. Before I go any further let me first explain the difference between incarnation and reincarnation.
Incarnation – Grace took on human form. The union of the Divine Deity of CHRIST JESUS and human form. JESUS is both 100% GOD and 100% man.
Reincarnation – The belief that the human spirit returns to earth in various forms striving for perfection. The belief that at the death of a human body; the soul transmigrates to another body; or is born again within a new body.
Transmigrate – moving from place to place.
In the Old Testament we see the shadow of JESUS in Mercy; a lot of the stories that we know so well you can find JESUS in the midst of them all. The Grace of the LORD GOD brings about life instead of the death that mankind was subject to according to the law. In Acts 20:32 Grace will build us up. In Romans 3:24 we are justified freely by HIS Grace. Romans 5:2; we have access by faith into the Grace of GOD where we can stand and rejoice in the hope of GOD’s glory. Romans 5:21 lets us know that sin reigned in death but Grace reigns through righteousness to eternal life with and through CHRIST JESUS.
