The word metamorphosis derives from Greek μεταμόρφωσις, transformation, transforming from μετα- (meta-), change and μορφή (morphe), form. The process of transformation from an immature form to an adult form in two or more distinct stages. A change of the form or nature of a thing or person into a completely different one, by natural or supernatural means. A process by which a conspicuous and relatively abrupt change in the body structure occurs through growth and differentiation. For the Monarch Butterfly, there are 7 main stages of its metamorphosis.

After the Tribulation of those Days...

Matthew 24:29
Where O Death is Your Victory?

(Isaiah 57:1-2; Hosea 13:14)
‘Now I declare to you, Brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of GOD, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I tell you a Mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed [metamorphosized] - in an instant, in the twinkling of an eye, at the Last Trumpet.

For the Trumpet will sound, the Dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must be clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come to pass:

Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? The sting of Death is sin, and the power of sin is the Law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!’  -1 Corinthians 15:50-57

You Must Be Born Again
‘Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from GOD, for no one can do these Signs that you do unless GOD is with him. Jesus answered him, Of a truth, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the Kingdom of GOD.

Nicodemus said to him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?  Jesus answered, Of a truth, I say to you, unless one is born of Water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of GOD That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, You must be born again…

Nicodemus said to him, How can these things be? Jesus answered him, You are the Teacher of Israel and yet you do not understand these things? Of a truth, I say to you, We speak of what We know, and bear witness to what We have seen, but you do not receive Our Testimony. If I have told you Earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you Heavenly things? No one has ascended into Heaven except He who descended from Heaven, the Son of Man. And as Moses lifted up the Serpent in the Wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him may have Eternal Life.’

–John 3:3-15
emphases added

in Biblical number studies, 5 represents Grace. The number 7 represents perfections beyond a completion point. A triple number accents the significance. Is it a coincidence that the year 5-777 could signify numerically the end of the Age of Grace and perhaps the Church Age?
