Are we Aiming to be Perfect …….

 

PERFECTED IN LOVECan we be Perfect in this Life and can we know and understand God’s Truth fully, God tells us we can and this is confirmed in the Scriptures below but He is not referring to worldly perfection which keeps changing and so is unattainable or worldly wisdom, both of which are of the Carnal Flesh and not The Spirit, we are to aim to be Perfected in Love which is shown in our Holiness and Righteousness .

Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore Perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is Perfect.

Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ let us go on unto Perfection not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of Faith toward God.

1 John 4:17-19 Herein is our Love made Perfect that we may have boldness in the day of judgment because as He is, so are we in this World. There is no fear in Love but Perfect Love casteth out fear because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made Perfect in Love. We Love Him, because He first Loved us.

2Timothy 3:17 That the man of God may be Perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Love Perfected 20

Paul tells us in the Scriptures that to be Perfect we must put away our Childish thinking which includes our fleshy reasoning and logic and than as he did we are to aim to be Perfected in Love and as we can see below Paul reached this goal before he died and so have other Christians who like Paul will also receive the  Crown of Righteousness and so will we with having been Perfected in Love just as Jesus is so are we in this World.

1 Corinthians 13: 9 -12 For we know in part and we Prophesy in part but when that which is Perfect come than that which is in part shall be done away with. When I was a Child I spake as a Child I understood as a Child but when I became a Man, I put away Childish things. For now we see through a glass darkly but than face to face, now I know in part but than shall I know, even as also I am known.

Ephesians 4:12-14 For the Perfecting of the Saints, for the work of the Ministry, for the edifying of the Body of Christ till we all come in the Unity of the Faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a Perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ, that we henceforth be no more Children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of Doctrine by the sleight of Men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive (KJV)

Philippians 3:12-15 Not that I have already obtained all this or have already been made Perfect but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it but one thing I do forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me Heavenward in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore as many as be Perfect be thus minded and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.

2 Timothy 4: 7-8 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the Faith. Now there is in store for me the Crown of Righteousness, which the Lord  The Righteous Judge will award to me on that day and not only to me but also to all who have longed for His appearing.

Jesus 1

As we can see confirmed below we will know all things because we have the mind of Christ and He is The Key and will lead us into all understanding having asked for and having received His Wisdom and Empowering by The Holy Spirit. (Proverbs 4:7 – James 1:5-6 -Luke 11:13 )

1 Corinthians 2:9-16 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that Love Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth but which the Holy Ghost teacheth, comparing spiritual things with Spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are Spiritually discerned. But he that is Spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the Mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? but we have the Mind of Christ. (KJV)

1 John 2:26-28 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any Man teach you but as the same anointing Teacheth you of all things and is Truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath Taught you, ye shall abide in Him. (KJV)

John 16:13 -15. Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth, is come, He will guide you into all Truth for He shall not speak of Himself but whatsoever He shall hear that shall He speak and He will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me for He shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine therefore said I, that He shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you. (KJV)

1John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is True and we are in Him that is True, even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the True God, and eternal life. (KJV)

Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and Teach you in the way you shall go, I will guide you with Mine eye. (KJV)

Matthew 10:26-28 Fear them not therefore for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in Light: and what ye hear in the ear, that Preach ye upon the housetops (KJV)

Colossians 2 :2 -3 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in Love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ in whom are hid all the Treasures of Wisdom and Knowledge. (KJV)

Please Note – There is a Teaching called Sinless Perfection which is about working for your Salvation, instead of it being a free gift that we will show we have, please reject it strongly, if we have to work for our Salvation then Jesus died in vain but yes Faith without Works is dead but these works are what God has prepared in advance for us to do and He equips, empowers and motivates us by The Spirit to do them, they are not Carnal self-motivated works done for Man’s glory not God’s. (KJV)

We can have full assurance that Salvation once received by Heart Repentance which confirms we believe in Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, cannot be lost, in Truth it was ours before we were even conceived, yes God knows those who are His by His foreknowledge of our Heart repentance and so He chooses us to be conformed into the Image of Jesus, and not when we are dead but now and so we will walk as He does in Love and Righteousness, Praise God not one of us will be lost!

Heart 71

1 John 4:17 Herein is our Love made Perfect that we may have boldness in the day of judgment because as He is, so are we in this World. (KJV)

1 John 2:4-6 He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His Commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His word, in him verily is the Love of God Perfected hereby know we that we are in Him. He that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked.

Colossians 1:28 Whom we Preach, warning every man, and Teaching every man in all Wisdom that we may present every man Perfect in Christ Jesus. (KJV)

2Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be Perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in Peace; and the God of Love and Peace shall be with you. (KJV)

Thank you for taking the time to share in God’s Truth with me, many Blessings in our Unity in Christ Jesus, Christian Love Always – Anne.

    • Thank you for commenting Kristi and yes we are to aim to be perfected in God’s Love, as we see confirmed in the Scripture in my Post and we will show we are too.

      You added a lot of likes on my Posts in a very short time Kristi, why did you do this if you did not read the messages? what was your reason, likes mean nothing if they are not sincere or perhaps you have you read the Posts before.

    I am very proud of you, and yes especially your fervency. Reading some commentary, I get a feel of that, but I can also see that in this post. Wow, I felt like I was back there in a early class I took on the work of the Holy Spirit (in my mid twenties). So detailed is this post. I love it. Memories, thanks so much for those. You are very special indeed. Keep it up (know you don’t need to be told, the Holy Spirit tells you, I see).

    Annie, If we practiced and perfected love all the time, imagine the number of people that would want to come to church! I always remember hearing that love (in the Bible) is always a command and oftentimes a feeling that accompanies the command. (In other words, keep loving until you feel like loving!)

    I may have already shared this with you from BSF. (Sorry if I am repeating myself.) “Love without truth is sentimentality. Truth without love is harshness.”

    Blessings and Love to you! – Debbie

    • Yes I agree Debbie, that is why we are to aim to be Perfected in Love and not just wait till it happens or when we die as some propagate and yes we can’t have Godly Love in the Carnal flesh no matter how much we try, it will be tainted, that is why our Carnal flesh must be put to death, see all of Romans 8 but there are others Scriptures that confirm this too see below.

      Walking in The Spirit is a choice and we have been set free so we can and when we choose to we are empowered to and than our Love is not Saccharine sweet, pumped up in the flesh, it is genuine and of God all the time not just sometimes, good and evil cannot co-exist in The Spirit.

      Romans 8 :12-15 Therefore, brothers/ sisters, we have an obligation but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it or if you live according to the sinful nature you will die but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live because those who are led by the Spirit of God are Sons of God.

      Colossians 3:4-6 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. Put to death, therefore whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.

      Galatians 24 -26 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. if we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

      2 Corinthians 7: 1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting Holiness in the fear of God.

      2 Timothy 2:19-21 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are His. And, let every one that nameth the Name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great House there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the Master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

    Yes Anne aiming for perfection is the goal for all Christians, sometimes we have missed the target but Paul says in Romans 8 that those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit but if your sinful nature controls the mind there is death but if the Holy Spirit controls the mind there is life and peace, seems to me to be a good way to go.

    Blessings

    • Yes Love, Romans 8 gives us good instruction and as we can see confirmed in the verse below, there is no condemnation when we walk in the Spirit not the flesh and the rest of the Chapter tells us what we must do to be able to walk in the Spirit.

      Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

    • Yes I was up late Bj but I had slept earlier and woke up later this Morning, sorry to hear about your legs what do you think caused the swelling?

      Thank you for your encouragement and yes the Message I shared is a powerful one because many today don’t know that we are to aim to be Perfected in Love in this life, they think it happens after we die, the same as seeing Jesus face to face but this is of the Spirit not the flesh.

      Today I have been invited to Morning Tea with a new Neighbour so I better get moving but I will be in touch later, keep your legs up and yes your Head too.
