Today, Incarnation, invisible spirit becoming known as present, and the unchanging existence of GOD are topics. The fullness of divinity (we say, the GODhead) reveals themselves as 3 separate persons, (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), and as a single active presence who communicates, exchanges, and interacts with and through created beings and living creatures. Through the Incarnation of divinity in the person of Jesus Christ, such divine tools as angel visitations and miracles would become less relied upon, for often they would foster fear, spiritual confusion, and uncertainty, rather than impart godliness and faith. The new creation introduced through Messianic covenant and holy blood would include rebirth, endowment of spirit content from the makeup of GOD, forbearance, forgiveness, and reconciliation.

Do you believe that God has a human form?
THE GOLDEN ARROW: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. (Colossians 1: 16-20, King James Version, KJV)

“Anonymous”, many mature Christian believers agree that Jesus Christ is an Incarnation (i.e., appearance; manifestation) of GOD using flesh and blood. Through operations of the spirit content that we receive from the makeup of GOD as created beings and living creatures, and as fresh deposits of spirit content from the makeup of GOD through Jesus Christ, mankind is capable of knowing and responding to the Creator who is immortal, incorruptible, and invisible—even without sense experiences (e.g., hearing, seeing, tasting, touching). “Ordinarily”, GOD exists as a spirit (we also say, breath, life essence, spoken word, utterance) who has no measurable dimensions (e.g., height, size, weight, etc.), yet, has authority, power, and sovereign will whereby he puts forth objects and things that have material or physical form. Included are animals, angels, mankind, and their diverse spheres of life.
Before the birth of Jesus, divinity had used multiple devices that were audible and visible to communicate with mankind. However, many of these had created confusion, fear, and doubt, rather than true sacred knowledge. Included were animals gifted to speak; deliverers (judges) like Deborah, Gideon, and Samson; families, tribes, and kingdoms; Patriarchs like Adam and Noah; prophets like Moses and Samuel; sacred events (we say, miracles); tables of stone written on by the finger of GOD; and angelic visitations. The ministry of Jesus as the Son of Man and the Son of GOD demonstrates that divinity is far more than an abstract idea from finite mankind, or a product of human imagination.
Christ served on earth in such roles as exorcist, healer, judge, prophet, redeemer, and provider of a new testament in blood between mankind and divinity. In heaven, the Savior is completing the construction of the Holy City, New Jerusalem. He will preside over the tribunals of final judgment, will determine the rewards for those who have served while on the earth, and will allot dwellings and portions of the City (inheritances) to those who are “ripe” (mature) that will be taken up when he comes to harvest from the earth those who belong to him (we say, the Advent, the Rapture, the Second Coming). As the dead are resurrected and the living are lifted to meet him in the air, their transformation to exist as eternal companions of divinity will be completed.
There is far more to be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, in heaven, Christ continues to use the image and form of a man from the earth. The savior also serves in the Temple of heaven as an High Priest who makes atonement for sin, who cleanses the sanctuary by the sprinkling of holy blood, and who purifies the throne of Glory (the Judgment Seat). Once final judgment and the second death are completed, and the New Jerusalem descends to the earth, there will no longer be death and mortality. Divinity will live with mankind upon the earth; however, GOD will still be sovereign over all that exists.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
