God became Jesus so that Jesus could become God once again

No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him.
–  John 1:18 [emphasis added]

Jesus is “the only begotten God.”  This phrase refers to His being raised from the dead.

Therefore, though we read about Him as a human being, His unique and seminal resurrection gives us reason to think of Him as God.

…we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him in this way no longer.
–  2 Corinthians 5:16

  1. Blessings,
    I would like your thoughts on the verse 2 Corinthians 5:16. Father God has sent me on journey to find out. We know that John 1:1 and Rev. 19:13 and others clearly speak of Jesus being God.
    We also learn in scripture that the Holy Spirit was sent by the Father in Jesus name. Has Jesus come again for those who seek HIM. Yes!!
    Is heaven the way most view it? Do we recognize loved ones? I want to share a vision. I was caring for my dying sister. I was praying and singing in the spirit. I was fasting. I saw a huge bright orange flame. This flame turned into a bright white light, so pure. I knew this was the throne. I then saw a robe all white pure as can be I knew it was Jesus, he was standing by a tree. I knew this tree to be the tree of life. The vision changed again. I saw the silhouette of a person kneeling and with their head bowed. I knew this was my sister. The last part of the vision was of pure white clouds with a portal of blue sky. The vision ended. I see this vision not as clear but all the time. It was breath taking. My sister passed that night. She had a relationship with Jesus and repented before she died. She knew him but a short time. So, I believe heaven is spiritual. Not physical. This is why I ask your thoughts on the verse. Thank you.

  2. I do not have any special insight about heaven. I believe Jesus that we will “be like angels in heaven, neither male nor female” (Matthew 22:30). I don’t think He means that we will lose our identities, for every Bible person portrayed as having died retained his identity. So, we will be the same – but different. Beyond this, I believe that, apart from special revelation by Jesus, heaven is as inscrutable to us now as life outside the womb is inscrutable to an infant in the womb. I believe also that God will not disappoint us with the experience. Just as no person who lives on earth wishes to go back to the womb, so no one who goes to heaven after this life will want to come back to earth.
