the significance of avatars

  The scriptures mention that God assumes various
manifestations from time to time to protect 
"virtuous people".Also the Bhagwad  Gita  says..
         	 yada yada hi dharmasya glanir bhavati
bharaata
	 	 abyuthanam adharmasya tada atmanam srjamyaham
	    	 paritrnaya sadhunam vinashaya cha dushkrutaam
		 dharma samsthapanarthaya sambhavami yuge yuge
my question is why should Lord come down to punish the
"evil" ?
Can't he do it from vaikuntam itself..by his mere
sankalpa?
I hope someone  will throw light to my question.
regards
