2 Peter 1:4

New International Version

“Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.”

Read all of 2 Peter 1

*Indeed regenerate Christians “participate in the divine nature”, but the battle here is on-going, only ‘In Christ’ do believers continue in this warfare, and win in the Great-Victor Himself: Jesus Christ!  This battle only ends in death or “Rapture”!  But thankfully as we mature ‘In Christ’ we are learning to overcome. (Fr. R.)
