God’s divine nature.

 In
Question:

The Bible talks about believers being partakers of God’s divine nature. What does that entail?

Dr. Fruchtenbaum‘s Answer:

As believers, we have eternal life and our soul is immortal. Our bodies will become immortal at the time of the resurrection. However, being immortal is not the same as being deity. For example, angels are immortal but they are not God. We shall partake of His divine nature in so far as being immortal and glorified, but we shall never have the attributes of deity such as omnipresence, omnipotence, and omniscience among others. On the contrary, those wanting to become like God or who claim to be God are reflecting the mind of Satan (Isaiah 14:12-14; II Thessalonians 2:3-8) in contrast to Jesus who always was God and was willing to take on the role of a servant (Philippians 2:5-9).
