Three phases characterize the spiritual life in relation to God: purification, illumination, and deification. These phases apply both individually and collectively. Humanity is in the first phase – namely, the purification of individuals and the world from all impurities and iniquities.
The stage is being set for the second phase, that of illumination. Some have already received the illumination of their own conscience, while others – the vast majority – still have to experience it. At the same time, the collective dimension of the second phase has not yet happened; that is, the global illumination of all consciences. Those already granted the individual illumination will undergo the process once more during the global illumination.
After purification and illumination have been completed, humanity will enter into the third phase of the spiritual life and relationship with the Father: deification, individually and collectively. This third phase will be the era of the common deification of humanity, popularly known as the era of peace – namely, the reign of the Father and His divine will; the kingdom come. It will be the fulfillment in time of 1 P 2:4. During this era, everyone will worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth, as this is what He has desired and decreed since the beginning. Goodness and joy will reign overall on earth for the first time since the fall of Adam.
After that, will come the last rebellion of Satan. The Antichrist will come onto the scene and there will be the final persecution. Subsequently, Christ will be seen returning on the clouds in His second coming and the last judgment will commence.
