Romans 12:1-2 KJV - I beseech 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: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
It says that your “reasonable service” is to present your body as a living sacrifice.
And it also says if you are transformed by the renewal of your mind, you will then be able to prove what is the will of God. We “prove” it by doing it. And what is the will of God that we prove once our mind is renewed? 1Thess 5:16-18 tells us the definition of the will of ...

The last days is a common theme in the Bible.
In Genesis, the “last days” came upon Jacob’s sons.
Genesis 49:1-2 KJV - And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you [that] which shall befall you in the last days. Gather yourselves together, and hear, ye sons of Jacob; and hearken unto Israel your father.
Are the last days something in our past, in our distant future, or something anyone in time can experience?
Isaiah speaks of the “last days”. He compares the last days to the “day of the LORD”.
Isaiah 2:1-2, 12 KJV - The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in the last days, [that] ...

Ephesians 6:16-17 KJV – Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
It says the word of God is the “sword of the Spirit”. But what is this sword?
1 Thessalonians 2:13 KJV - For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received [it] not [as] the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.
The word of God cannot be heard as a person (i.e. man) would speak or hear, nor are they the words of a person. The word of God is not the ...

Luke 17:21, 24 “Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. ... For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one [part] under heaven, shineth unto the other [part] under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.”
The kingdom of God is within you. Heaven is with you. The light-ning shines within you.
Luke 17:20 “And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:”
It says the “coming” is not observed with ocular evidence (i.e. observation with the physical eyes).
Matthew 16:25, 27-28 “For whosoever will save his life shall ...

A conclusion of the Spiritual Law:
Exodus 20:17 “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that [is] thy neighbour's.”
1 Corinthians 10:23-31 “All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not. Let no man seek his own, but every man another's [wealth]. Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, [that] eat, asking no question for conscience sake: For the earth [is] the Lord's, and the fulness thereof. If any of them that believe not bid you [to a feast], and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat...

Exodus 20:16 “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.”
The word “bear” here in Exodus 20:16 means the following from Strong’s concordance “…by extension to begin to speak; specifically to sing, shout, testify, announce:…”
This commandment is telling us to not sing, speak, announce anything that is false (wrong) about others. But Spiritual Law 8 says that others are also an extension of ourselves, and other previous posts describe each person as a “god” that has Christ or a piece of God within. We are not to announce any “false” statements about anyone including ourselves. And this includes thoughts in our head that we tell ourselves. But...

Exodus 20:15 “Thou shalt not steal.”
To steal means to take for yourself something that is not legally yours. This has deep spiritual implications and meaning. People “steal” with their heart when they want something that is not meant to be. There is a proper way of getting all that we need in this world, and it is not to take without “payment” what is not yours. And if it is not for sale, well then.
Matthew 6:31, 33 “Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? ... But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
Philippians 4:6, 11 “Be ...

Exodus 20:14 “Thou shalt not commit adultery.”
2 Corinthians 11:1-4 “Would to God ye could bear with me a little in [my] folly: and indeed bear with me. For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present [you as] a chaste virgin to Christ. But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or [if] ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with [him].”
Remember we have female (wife) and male (husband) ...

The seventh commandment in Exodus 20:13 says “Thou shalt not kill.”
And then expanded upon in Leviticus 19:18 “Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.”
Philippians 2:3-4 “[Let] nothing [be done] through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.”
1 Peter 5:2-3, 5 “Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight [thereof], not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over [God's] heritage...

If we continue on with this unusual interpretation of Genesis, where Genesis Chapter 1 is seen as summary of the entire Bible with the idea that “ye are Gods” (Psalm 82); then we are the God(s) in Genesis 1.
Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
Genesis 2:4-5 “These [are] the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and [there was] not a man to till the ground.”
We create the heaven (our upper consciousness) and earth (our lower...
