I disagree about the BAC's spirit not going to Heaven (unless you may be referring to what Heaven may consist of).
And again, don't claim to know it all . . . I haven't completely dived into the afterlife. Just the other day as I was going through my stuff to move into my parent's home (sis is renting my home), I came across an article that I believe was from Eldredge's ministry. He mentioned a few verses in the book of Peter that have to do with the same topic we have been exploring and he distinguishes in those verses, and others, references to the Kingdom of God and the millennium, not affecting salvation. I don't know if I totally agree with all he said, but I can see it fitting in areas in scripture.
On transformation, I believe at the fall our souls (mind, will, emotions) became bonded to the fallen natural life (carnal nature). So, what we experience on this Earth is link to our fallen life is full of sin and death.
When Jesus died, we who believe and accept Him experience a separation from that bonding in death with Him, are reborn by his Spirit, and joined to Jesus by that same Spirit. We are given his will and desires by his Spirit. And there is still the marriage where our (body of Christ / bride) two-as-one will be complete.
Transformation to me is a change in what our soul experiences via enlightenment / REVELATION from the Holy Spirit by which one believes at the deepest level. Is there more to it than that? Maybe. This is what I see of now.
And, no foolin'. Seriously, if you want your money's worth, my pa's nurse brought over some pumpkin muffins from Dunkin Donuts. Wow! Taste great, and moist and fluffy. They also have it as a coffee cake for 5.99. That's what I usually buy.
