The Lord is lowly and humble. When He walked the earth in Israel, the great God who created all things could not be differentiated from other men.  The bible says that there was nothing about Him that would make us prefer Him over others. 

This is because we humans are made in the image of God so that means that if God tuned down His appearance far enough, He could pass for a regular human being. As Isaiah says in chapter 53 verse 2,  "He has no stately form or majesty that we should look upon Him, nor appearance that we should be attracted to Him."

Yet, this appearance belied a majestic, thunderous and overwhelmingly powerful and unapproachable  presence. 

If He were to stand in a police line-up with 10 other regular men, we would not be able to isolate Him as the one who created Aldeberon and betelgeuse and even the largest known star,  UY Scuti. 

Looking at Him standing there quietly while you looked at his family history that has him being born in a barn at the edge of a small village, you would not guess that the universe violently exploded into existence at His command and that He continuously sustains the universe and all  that is in it by His great power.

The person in a humble attire and sandals would not be identifiable as the victorious Lord of Lords who was soon to humiliate and scatter the entire  kingdom of darkness after He breached the headquarters of Hell.  He sent spiritual powers and principalities  scrambling in a frenzied panic when He unleashed the blinding fire of his righteousness on them. Many are still smouldering in embers to this day after that encounter. 

The humble and lowly person Jesus Christ  is now the absolute and final victor and He sits at the right hand of God the Father. He reigns over a kingdom of justice and righteousness and He offers  reconciliation with God that was made possible through His sacrifice on the cross and the brilliant victory over darkness.

Praise Him who has authority  over all things.
