At the end of the world before this heaven and earth passes away, to be redeemed from this earth to heaven human beings must be changed into the image of the heavenly.
“As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly” (1 Corinthians 15:48-49).
To obtain the image of the heavenly requires the “Light of Life” Only Jesus, the only begotten Son of God has been given the power by his Father to give this “Light of Life”.
“Wherefore God saith: ‘Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light’” (Ephesians 5:14).
“And so it is written, the first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven” (1 Corinthians 15:45, 47).
Jesus, the only begotten Son of God says: “I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8:12). “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world” (John 9:5).
“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live; and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die” (John 11:25–26).
“I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).
