Receiving the promises of eternal life in the flesh. Some called it the Quickening, translation, transfiguration....However it is not a fullness of the power of the resurrection...these are not given the fullness of their rewards until after Judgment day.
Moses spent so much time in the glory of the Lord that He glowed for 3 days after ward. This scared ISrael so much that He had to wear a veil. See OT on this. The Light was being emitted from every cell of his body. This change was not permanent and Moses after a few days was like the other ISraelites again.
However, without this Change Moses would have certainly died in the presence of the glory of God...for no natural man could survive it. A man must become the Spiritual man in the flesh in he hopes to be presented to the Father by Jesus.
Read the ODES of SOLOMON God permitted the author of it to give us an account.....He states that He received body free from pain and afflictions and so on. It is very interesting.
And in hebrews....
Hebrews 11:35 - Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:
These have the promises of GOD...they cannot die unless they give their life away...and if they would but pray for deliverance...God would send them Angels Just like Jesus said God would send Angels to rescue Him if he prayed to the Father.
Why? BEcause SONS of GOD prayers are answered and most often they are answered even before they have left off from speaking...(Isaiah) There is a lot more to this.

Also if there is any texts other than Bible that tell about dead who were risen.
