Perfection is possible or God would not want you to attain it. But you cannot do it by yourself. Perfection is a divine state of being found only in the anointing when Christ is fully present in a vessel suitable for the Master's use.
God is Perfect eternally.
He has set Christ before the church as a divine door for those who are willing to hunger and thirst after righteousness to enter in and partake of the divine nature through absolute obedience to the Spirit of the Word of God. God sent His Divine Word to manifest as Jesus Christ, His Divine Son, to manifest in human flesh so you could attempt to emulate his righteousness in all things growing up into Him in His Holy Spirit.
To do so, you must serve only one Master in full time service to God. You cannot become perfectly alive in Christ without becoming perfectly dead to yourself.
You must die daily.
Every sin separates us from the Perfection of God. Yet sadly enough, God's people surrender to their flesh in the making of licenses to sin. One of the most popular licenses is the false claim that we are not under any law and do not have to obey the commands found in holy Scripture.
If you jump off of a skyscraper, the law of gravity will carry you down to the ground to a quick and violent death. You are under the law of gravity, aren't you?
You will "reap what you sow."
"Reap what you sow," is another of those inescapable laws God requires of all mankind. How is it then, you think you ought not to obey the commands written in holy Scripture?
Let's consider the command to be perfect.
The Lord went into the mountains and taught his disciples, commanding them: "BE THEREFORE PERFECT, EVEN AS YOUR FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN IS PERFECT." (St. Matthew 5:48) They could have tried to be perfectly like King Herod and would have become wicked like him had they foolishly followed his examples.
King Herod was not an example of perfection. He made many wicked evil mistakes.
But God in heaven doesn't make mistakes. Jesus was letting his disciples know they were to labor hard to become spiritually perfect. They were very fortunate. They had the perfect example of God in the flesh to emulate. Christ Jesus was the only visible example of Perfection in all the world.
If we all obeyed the command the Lord gave his disciples, how much better America would be as a nation. How much better our lives would be free from error and sin. Yet we hear Christians everywhere saying, "I'm not under the law. I just have to believe."
Of course, we read in holy Scripture that "the law made nothing perfect." (Hebrews 7:19) Perfection is a Spirit. But how else could anyone in the Old Testament or the New Testament become Perfect without obeying "THE LAWS OF THE SPIRIT which are found written in the holy Word of God?"
If you choose to live according to your self will, you are choosing sin. A man or a woman living in sin, lives by their own word. It is seldom a Christian is ever heard quoting the Word of God in these last days.
Yet God's Word is his perfect will. Why would you ever think to do anything but the Word of God?
God's people are in such a state of blind rebellion in America today, it is commonly believed Christ has suffered for us, therefore we are left to comfort ourselves; and do whatever pleases us. We are told we don't have to pay any attention to denying ourselves and taking up our cross. We don't have to obey "THE LAWS OF THE SPIRIT" to "OFFER UP THE SACRIFICE OF PRAISE CONTINUALLY" and "PRAY WITHOUT CEASING." Yet there is no anointing of the Spirit without obedience to "THE LAWS OF THE SPIRIT."
Benny Hinn recently told an audience, "There is nothing you can do for God. God doesn't need any help from us." The multitude loved it!!!
The cameras panned to faces smiling and nodding their head with pleasure. Benny Hinn had set them free to live their own selfish life apart from God.
But you might say, "Sir, I'm not called to be a disciple. Therefore, what Jesus said to his disciples does not apply to me." Oh well, if everyone thought that way, there would be no disciples. If everyone does nothing, then "FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD," and we are a faithless church.
Saint Paul commanded the Church at Corinth to be perfect. Do you think they were all disciples? No. But they had an apostle writing to them, ...not a bully or a dictator; or someone trying to take over their lives.
Paul wrote, "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." (2 Corinthians 13:11)
There were several commands in the verse along with what they could expect to reap if they sowed obedience. Do you want the "THE GOD OF LOVE AND PEACE" to be with you? Then you should expect to obey the Word of God.
The most important command encompasses them all.
"ALL SCRIPTURE IS GIVEN BY INSPIRATION OF GOD, AND IS PROFITABLE FOR DOCTRINE,
FOR REPROOF, FOR CORRECTION, FOR INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS: THAT THE
MAN OF GOD MAY BE PERFECT, THROUGHLY FURNISHED UNTO ALL GOOD WORKS."
(2 Timothy 3:16/17)
We are brought into the divine state of Perfection when we live according to the whole Word of God so perfectly, God is manifest through Christ in us to show us the perfect way through the guidance of his eye in us.
"WHEN THE EYE IS SINGLE, THE WHOLE BODY IS FILLED WITH LIGHT."
When you live for the Lord with ALL I AM, you will find Jesus waiting for you in the center
of truth in the unseen dimension man cannot enter without His Spirit guiding them in to the
heart of God.
