It was wholly necessary that God manifest Himself to the world through Jesus Christ to save us from corruption. This corruption included sin and death, and the worshipping of other gods. Manifestation was necessary to be in the human form because otherwise, those people who needed to see to believe, would have remained doubtful. It was not an easy road to salvation for Jesus, but all was necessary to accomplish God’s plan, and to give us hope in eternal life in the kingdom of Heaven.
