In Orthodoxy

In the text of the New Testament this term is missing. However, there are certain instructions in it:

may all be one, as Thou, Father, are in Me, and I am in Thee, [so] and they may be one in Us.

And more specifically:

great and precious promises have been given to us, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, moving away from the corruption in the world by lust

Who and where first used the term "deification" is not known exactly. It occurs in the IV century in one of the letters of Gregory the Theologian to Vasily the Great. Some scholars have called Athanasius the Great (Father of the Church of the 4th Century) formula “God made man to be deified” classical, and, in essence, only with a clearer formulation of thought, which already belongs to Irenaeus of Lyons (II century).

Deification is a ceaseless action, the aspiration of man to God, the moral assimilation of Him:

Be holy because I am holy.

In process of deification, transformation of his nature, man is given the fruits of the Holy Spirit:

The fruit of the spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, mercy, faith, meekness, temperance.

All the properties of Adam before the fall are returned: communion of God, command of the whole creature, and others.

Gregory the Theologian indicates that when a person is freed from sin, he becomes visible to God:

“A man (1 Tim. 2, 5), so that it would be otherwise incompatible for the body, due to the immensity of nature, not only become capacity through the body, but also sanctifies man, becoming like a leaven for the whole mixture, free the whole man from condemnation, connecting condemned with Himself, becoming for everyone everything that makes us, except sin, - body, soul, mind, - everything that death has penetrated. And the common of all this is a man, by the contemplated, visible God. "
