(The brightness of our revelations depend upon the correctness of our doctrines (our building blocks)
(Rom 12:1,2) I beseech [appeal to] you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world [Gk: aion] [versus kosmos (cosmos)]: but be ye transformed [Gk: metamorphoo; transfigured] by the renewing [Gk: renovation] of your mind [“by its new ideals and its new attitude” Amplif. Bible] [your spirit], that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
1. conformed = Gk: to be fashioned alike, conformed to the same pattern: fashion self according to.
2. transformed = Gk: metamorphoo; (“metamorphosed): changed, transfigured, transformed.
3. (Mat 17:1-3) And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured [Gk: metamorphoo; transformed] before them: and his face did shine [Gk: to beam, radiate brilliancy: give light] as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elijah talking with him.
a. (Luke 9:30,31) And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elijah: Who
appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish
4. Commentary: “by the renewing of your mind” = We all are the spirits of fallen angels (the sons of God). Our minds (our thinking, our thought process, i.e., spirit) are the minds of fallen angels. However, we are being redeemed (saved, restored) by the renovation (renewing) of our mind (spirit), our thinking process, back into what our minds (spirits) were originally created to be (i.e., perfect – all good angels). Thereafter, God did additionally “create evil” (Isa 45:7), and “the waster to destroy” (Isa 54:16)… and the good angel Lucifer became infected (contaminated, influenced) by “evil.” and Lucifer (now becoming Satan) infected many other angels, who altogether “fell” (were exorcised: Rev 12:4) from Heaven. Then God began to re-educate (i.e., to redeem “here a little, and there a little” Isa 28:10) His fallen angels with the example of a parallel type and shadow of Lucifer’s fall from good to evil as seen in Adam’s fall from good to evil. Because Adam was not created but “formed” (Gen 2:7) as a temporary entity, a tent (man), and he was not the original temple (angels) for God’s Spirit, “the renewing of your mind” process does not stop (is not fully accomplished) in Adam but flows through Adam back into the original sons of God. The Lord God is restoring all those fallen angels who are willing to serve Him (many are not willing), back into our original “perfect” mind, the mind of a “good” angel.
a. (Isa 45:7) I form the light, and create darkness [Heb: fig. misery, destruction, death, ignorance, sorrow, wickedness]: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
b. (Isa 54:16) Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.
(Eccl 12:7) Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was [the temporary Adam nature]: and the spirit [our transformed soul] shall return unto God who gave it.
