How awesome is the gift that God gave us—His only begotten Son. God has many sons and daughters that He created. However, the scriptures tell us, and the scriptures cannot be broken, that He only has one begotten (not created, but begotten) Son—Jesus Christ—and He gave Him to us to die for us and pay the penalty for our sins (John 3:16) so that we would not have to die (John 8:51). However, even if we do die and we believed in Him, there is a remedy, not of the first activities and temple rituals of burnt offerings, etc., but of the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all (Hebrews 9:27-28 and 10:1-14).
Jesus taught the principle of deathless perfection followed by transfiguration or translation—eternal life. And, of course, scriptures (old and new testaments), support His teachings.
In His sermon on the mount (Matthew chapter 5-7), our Lord taught us: who are the blessed and what those blessings are (Matthew 5:3-12). Then He continued on by explaining how to live to receive the fullness of those blessings (Matthew 5:13-47). He summed it all up by saying for us to be perfect like our Father in heaven is perfect (Matthew 5:48).
Then He gave us additional information to assist us in attaining and remaining in that state of perfection (Matthew chapters 6 & 7).
Living and being the above teachings brings a person to a state that well pleases God (Hebrews13:16). When one well pleases God he receives Translation, a change in the body, mind and spirit of that one like Enoch of old did until he is no longer seen or “found” on the earth because God took him (Genesis 5:24 and Hebrews 11:5).
Jesus gave a clear example of this change in Matthew 17:1-5. There are other examples, as well. One is Philip after baptizing the eunuch (Acts 8:39-40).
This is not some person’s interpretation taught by a certain church or group, this is plain scripture. Read it for yourself. Then pray and ask God to give you understanding.
