God Grants Everlasting Life To Believers
The Bible says that God will grant everlasting life to those who believe in His Son, Jesus Christ. But this will not mean humans will become God. Each individual must depend upon God for everlasting life. Those who promise that humans can become God either do not understand the differences between the creature and the Creator or are deliberately perverting the truth of God.
It is impossible for human beings to become God. This false promise was given to Eve back in the Garden of Eden. The reason humans cannot become God has to do with the nature of God. God, is God by nature. He did not become God at some certain point in time. Human beings are finite. There was a time when human beings did not exist but there has never been a time when God has not existed. It is the difference between the creature and the Creator.

You don't source your quotations, but they appear to come from one or more of the works of the Gnostic thinkers.
Just so that people know they aren't Biblical.
"I will bring forth a new kingdom, that is of spirit and heart, and that of the flesh will remain of the flesh rotten to its core for the flesh is of the earth and will return to the earth, and those of the spirit will walk with the spirit that dwells for eternity which is the light of the world."
That all is clean forever and forever,
That the cool drink from the well tastes so good,
That blackberries are so flavorous and juicy,
That the fruits of the apple-orchard and the orange-orchard, that melons, grapes, peaches, plums, will
none of them poison me,
That when I recline on the grass I do not catch any disease,
Though probably every spear of grass rises out of what was once a catching disease.
Now I am terrified at the Earth, it is that calm and patient,
It grows such sweet things out of such corruptions,
It turns harmless and stainless on its axis, with such endless successions of diseas'd corpses,
It distills such exquisite winds out of such infused fetor,
It renews with such unwitting looks its prodigal, annual, sumptuous crops,
It gives such divine materials to men, and accepts such leavings from them at last.
from Walt Whitman, This Compost

I've always thought that was suspect at best, to hide knowledge that impacts us. Even for what to me is just an old story.
2 Corinthians 5
New International Version
Awaiting the New Body
5 For we know that if the earthly(A) tent(B) we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. 2 Meanwhile we groan,(C) longing to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling,(D) 3 because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. 4 For while we are in this tent, we groan(E) and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling,(F) so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. 5 Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.(G)
6 Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. 7 For we live by faith, not by sight.(H) 8 We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.(I) 9 So we make it our goal to please him,(J) whether we are at home in the body or away from it. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us(K) for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.
King James Version
5 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:
3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.
4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.
5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight
8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
Now in the darkness was born the one who was of and bared the light who had love for all creation, something that was never found in the darkness that consumed all things that were trying to be formed. Yes, the thing they will always hid from you is that before God shone his light there was darkness a force that hungered to devour the creation.
Anyway, this man that says such blasphemous things is off to take a break, I have said enough on the behalf of the message that was meant to be passed on.
It is blasphemous for it does not align to the stories taught by man nor the religious teachings of many,
This person/being/force represents the life in every breath, the wind in every sail and the light of the world that is the truth of many but told by very few.
