The Perfect God

God is perfect.
His being, attribute, character, will, power and deeds are perfect (Ps18:30).
He receives perfect sacrifice (He10:8) and
Lets those whose walk is blameless to minister to Him (Ps101:6).

Perfect refers to having reached its end, complete, mature, without flaws or fault.
Faith is believing that God alone is perfect and that one has been made perfect by Him (Lk6:40), and
The life of this faith is going onto perfection until obedience is completed (2Co10:6; He6:1).

The Bible illustrates how God alone is perfect.
Noah, who was considered blameless in his time (Ge6:9),
After the deluge became drunk and laid uncovered, and then
Cursed his son who saw and told others (Ge9:21-27).
Moses took a gentile woman as wife which was forbidden (Nu12:1, 25:6-8).
David took his loyal servant’s wife as his own and had him killed in battle (2Sa11:3-17).
While no creature is perfect as such, however,
The perfection of the created is required (Eze28:12-15), that is,
To use its free will, that is, to fear the name of God (Mi6:9).

The commandment given to Israel was to be blameless before Jehovah (Dt18:13).
The blameless who keeps the perfect law of the LORD (Ps19:7) were
Promised the blessing to dwell in the promised land (Ps119:1; Pr2:21).
In spite of that, however, the stiff-necked people of Israel denied and fell consequently.

Yeshua said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days,” because
Through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body (Jn2:19-21),
The Son of God would carry out in the temple with a perfect heart (Ps101:2)
Not the law of Jehovah but the command of the Father.
The devil tested Him who is without sin (Mt4:1-3; He4:15) for
He has the same condition as men, the weakness of the flesh (He4:15).

Though in the eyes of the Pharisees who kept the law and prided themselves on perfection,
Yeshua was just a sinner who broke the Sabbath (Jn9:16),
He came in the flesh to fulfill the Law and the Prophets (Mt5:17) and that
On the third day after His death He would be perfected (Lk13:32).

As He died, He said, “It is finished” (Jn19:30), declaring that He:
1) Kept the Father’s command by His blameless life (Ps26:1), declaring that the Father alone is the perfect One who has no weakness, no death (Jn10:18);
2) Judged the devil who ignored the perfection of creation (Eze28:12-15; Mi6:9); and
3) Sprinkled His flawless, spotless blood on all mankind and became the perfect Redeemer (1Pe1:19).

Yeshua Christ is the perfect Priest (He7:11-28), the perfect tabernacle (He9:9-11), and the prefect sacrifice (He10:14).

In the beginning — the perfect God — became flesh/ weakness
Death — the Father alone is perfect
Blood — the perfect sacrifice — those who believe — to go onto perfection (He6:1)

Three days after He resurrected and as the perfect one (Lk13:32)
He ascended to heaven and sat down at the right hand of God.
The Holy Spirit comes to the souls who
Received the blood of Yeshua and have been made perfect (1Co2:6).
To present them as fully mature in Christ (Col1:28), chosen as the perfect bride of Christ
He admonishes and teaches them, equipping them for
The works of service so that the body of Christ may be built up (Eph4:12).

The Christian who received the perfect law that gives freedom, that is, the gospel, has
Received the command to be perfect and thus carries it out into action (2Co13:11; Jas1:25):
1) He fixes his eyes on the Lord, the perfecter of faith, Yeshua (He12:2) and by perseverance produces crop (Lk8:14-15);
2) Like the Father God is perfect he shares with his neighbors, not sparing his possession (Mt5:48, 19:21; Col3:14); and
3) He eats only to fulfill the perfect will of the Father, raising to life the souls given to him (Jn4:34, 6:38; Rm12:2) and
4) To be perfect he seeks God (2Co12:9; Jas1:5).

O Lord,
The only thing perfect in this world is
The blood of Yeshua inside my soul!
The flesh is still ugly, lacking and makes many mistakes
So Yeshua, as we fix our eyes on You to go onto perfection,
Help us all! Amen.
