If Jesus Came Again in the Flesh, He’d Have to Die Again in the Flesh

You who insist that Jesus Christ will come again in the flesh, why do you want this?  Don’t you realize that if He came again in the flesh, He’d have to die again in the flesh?  All flesh is like grass, and grass dies. 

Paul said in Romans 6 that Christ, having been raised from the dead, is never to die again.  In Acts 13, he said Christ, according to the Scriptures, will no more return to decay.  In 2 Corinthians 5 he said that though we have known Christ according to the flesh, we know Him thus no longer! 

We human beings, upon death, are raised incorruptible to live in heaven eternally.  By seeking to have Christ return to earth we would have Him enter a state which even we ourselves aren’t going to enter.

Christ coming again in the flesh would be going backwards.  It is appointed unto man once to die.  Forsake the flesh and live for the spirit (see Romans 8 for a fuller exposition).

The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in biblical terms.
