Incarnation is a clothing, or state of being clothed, with flesh; taking on, or being manifested in, a body of flesh. Scripturally, it describes the condition of angels appearing to mankind on earth. False religion claims it is the "union of Christ's divinity with his humanity".
Angels in Noah's Day Took On Flesh and Bore Children Contrary to God's Will
Genesis 6:1-5 "And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the ground, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all that they chose.,.. The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them: the same were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown. And Jehovah saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually."
They Were Sentenced by God and Power of Incarnation Taken Away
2 Peter 2:4 "God did not hold back from punishing the angels that sinned, but, by throwing them into Tartarus, delivered them to pits of dense darkness to be reserved for judgment."
Jude 6 "And the angels that did not keep their original position but forsook their own proper dwelling-place He has reserved with eternal bonds under dense darkness for the judgment of the great day."
1 Peter 3:19, 20 "He went His way and preached to the spirits in prison, which had once been disobedient when the patience of God was waiting in Noah's days."
Holy Angels Appeared in Flesh to Man at God's Command
Genesis 19:1-5, 15, 16 "And the two angels came to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot saw them, and rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face to the earth; and he said, Behold now, my lords, turn aside, I pray you, into your servant's house, and tarry all night... . But before they lay down, the men of the city ... called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men that came in to thee this night?"
Luke 1:26-28 "The angel Gabriel was sent forth from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin promised in marriage to a man named Joseph of David's house; and the name of the virgin was Mary. And when he went in before her he said: 'Good day, highly favored one, Jehovah is with you.' "
John the Baptist Not an Incarnation of Elijah
Matthew 17:10-13 "The disciples put the question to Him: 'Why, then, do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?' In reply He said: "... I say to you that Elijah has already come and they did not recognize him but did with him the things they wanted. ...' Then the disciples perceived that He spoke to them about John the Baptist."
Matthew 11:11-14 "Truly I say to you people, Among those born of women there has not been raised up a greater than John the Baptist. . .. For all, the Prophets and the Law, prophesied until John; and if you want to accept it, This is 'Elijah who is destined to come'."
John Merely Extended Work of Elijah Under Influence of Holy Spirit
Malachi 4:5, 6 "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and terrible day of Jehovah come. And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers."
Luke 1:13-17 "Your wife Elizabeth will be the mother of a son to you, and you are to call his name John. And you will have joy and great gladness, and many will rejoice over his birth; ... and he will be filled with holy spirit right from his mother's womb, and many of the sons of Israel will he turn back to Jehovah their God. Also he will go before Him with Elijah's spirit and power, to turn back the hearts of fathers to children and the disobedient ones to the practical wisdom of righteous ones, to get ready for Jehovah a prepared people."
John Admitted He Was Not Elijah
John 1:19-21 "Now this is the witness of John when the Jews sent forth priests and Levites from Jerusalem to him to ask him: 'Who are you?' And he confessed and did not deny, but confessed: 'I am not the Christ.' And they asked him: 'What, then? Are you Elijah?' And he said: 'I am not.' "
Jesus Was Not an Incarnation. Was Born of Woman, Made Flesh
Galatians 4:4 "But when the full limit of the time arrived, God sent forth His Son, who was produced out of a woman and who came to be under law."
John 1:14 "So the Word became flesh and resided among us, and we had a view of His glory, a glory such as belongs to an only-begotten son from a father."
Had Jesus Been an Incarnation He Would Not Have Needed Birth as a Child, but Could Have Assumed Flesh as After Resurrection
Luke 1:30, 31 "So the angel said to her: 'Have no fear, Mary, for you have found favor with God; and, look! you will conceive in your womb and give birth to a son, and you are to call his name Jesus.' "

Luke 24:15, 16, 30, 31, 33-43 "Now as they were conversing and discussing Jesus Himself approached and began traveling with them; but their eyes were kept from recognizing Him. And as He was reclining with them at the meal He took the loaf, blessed it, broke it and began to hand it to them. At that their eyes were fully opened and they recognized Him; and He disappeared from them. And in that very hour they rose and returned to Jerusalem. ... Now they themselves described the events on the road and how he became known to them by the breaking of the loaf. While they were speaking of these things He Himself stood in their midst. ... But while they were still not believing for sheer joy and were wondering, He said to them: 'Do you have something there to eat?' And they handed Him a piece of broiled fish; and He took it and ate it before their eyes."
Peter Spoke of Himself as "in This Tabernacle", Yet He Was No Incarnation
2 Peter 1:13, 14 "But I consider it right, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to rouse you up by way of reminding you, knowing as I do that the putting off of my tabernacle is soon to be."
Jesus Left Behind Things of Spirit When Made a Man
Philippians 2:7, 8 "[Jesus] emptied Himself and took a slave's form and came to be in the likeness of men. More than that, when He found Himself in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient as far as death."
Hebrews 2:9 "We behold Jesus, who has been made a little lower than angels."
Jesus Had to Become All Flesh in Order to Provide Corresponding Price for Mankind's Ransom
Hebrews 2:14-17 "Therefore, since the 'young children' are sharers of blood and flesh, He also similarly partook of the same things, .. . For He is really not assisting angels at all, but He is assisting Abraham's seed. Consequently He was obliged to become like His 'brothers' in all respects,... in order to offer propitiatory sacrifice for the sins of the people."
Exodus 21:23, 24 "You shall give life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot."
If Jesus Had Combined Divinity with Humanity He Could Not Have Died

1 Peter 3:18 "Why even Christ died once for all time concerning sins, a righteous person for unrighteous ones, that He might lead you to God, He being put to death in the flesh, but being made alive in the spirit."
1 Corinthians 15:3, 4 "Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, yes, that He has been raised up the third day according to the Scriptures."
Appearance of Prophets at Transfiguration of Jesus Was a Vision, Not an Incarnation
Matthew 17:1-3, 9 "Jesus took Peter and James and John his brother along and brought them up into a lofty mountain by themselves. And He was transfigured before them, and His face shone as the sun, and His garments became brilliant as the light. And, look! there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, conversing with Him. And as they were descending from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying, 'Tell the vision to no one.' "
