“The emptying of Word God conveyed deification onto human nature. Therefore, if man begins to obey God’s will from this life, he as a person will be transferred to be united with the Lord trough Grace. Just as the adopted child participates in his father’s property, his name and personality, similarly even though we have in some sense not been born of the Lord, we have acquired the same status as a natural child, because the Lord adopted us…This is what Word God brought on earth.”
