More amazing than our minds can comprehend is the idea that God became a human being. This astounding event is called “the incarnation.” But why did God do it?

  • Mr. Rosario mentions that (if I understand correctly) Jesus condescends to become man, thereby skipping the angels, creating a unique relationship between man and Jesus that the angels don’t have. I have wondered in Rev 5 when Jesus is taking the throne, only the four living beings and the 24 elders sing the new song, “You are worthy to take the scroll and open the seals, for you were slain and purchased for God with your blood from every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they will reign on the earth.” The angels evidently don’t sing that song, but do join in on the next spoken chorus in verse 12. Why do the angels not join in on the song in verses 9 & 10? Is it because they don’t benefit from Christ’s sacrifice in the way that man does; which, would confirm the unique relationship Jesus has with man? Also, does that give us a clue as to who or what the four living beings are?
