Walking In Conscious Perfection
Reflection: Our season of conscious perfection
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect (Matthew 5:48).
Some people, because they haven’t been accurately taught the Word, believe and hold on to wrong teachings and ideas for many years. That something sounds nice and religious doesn’t mean it’s consistent with God’s Word. For example, there’re those who say, “We’re never going to be perfect. As long as we’re in this physical body, we’re going to sin; we’re going to keep making mistakes.” But this isn’t what the Bible teaches. Many of those who have such beliefs got it from their own experiences. They think everybody else is making mistakes somehow, because they’re making mistakes in their own lives. So, they don’t believe in perfection. But the problem is that they don’t know what perfection in Christ is.
When you study the Word, there’s no place that suggests to us the impossibility of perfection. We read in our theme verse: “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” The word, “perfect” is the Greek, “teleios,” meaning “full grown”; complete and nothing lacking. In this verse, God wants you to measure your heart with the heart of God. And the way to do this is through the Word. When you think, love and forgive others as God wants you to; when you have the heart of the Father, that’s being perfect as He is perfect. If we couldn’t be perfect, God would never require it of us.
Inspire those around you by the excellence of your life, and the perfection with which you do what you do, through the Spirit. The Bible says He’s called us to “glory and virtue” (2 Peter 1:3). That means He’s called you to excellence; therefore, living an excellent life is native to your spirit. Believe in perfection, for that’s your life and nature in Christ Jesus.
The Bible says He died to present you sin-free and perfect before the Father: “And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight” (Colossians 1:21-22 NKJV).
Genesis 6:9 KJV: These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
Genesis 17:KJV: And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.
Our season of Conscious OF PERFECTION
Perfection is a word that terrifies a lot of people. We have been told all our lives that no one is perfect. They train us to accept our imperfections.
In the scriptures, God never said perfection is impossible. On the contrary, perfections is what God desires and demands. Perfection is at different levels.
Perfection means to be flawless, complete. Look at the Scripture God told Abraham to walk before him and be perfect. He wants him to be flawless.
We produce perfect stuff, perfect devices, perfect machines. This should let you know that perfection is possible.
Here’s another thing. Job 1:1 KJV: There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.
Look at verse 8 God is addressing the devil and he said 8 KJV: And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?
Let’s hear Jesus just in case you are thinking these are old testament. Matthew 5:48 KJV: Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
Jesus said so, imagine a child when he is born, he can’t do anything for himself; but this baby is as perfect as anyone else.
KJV: I know that whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor anything taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.
Whatsoever God made lasts forever.
I once prayed for some people at the healing line of one of our vigils. After I prayed, I asked if any of them had been healed and non raised a hand. I went back to my seat and asked God what happened? God told me that they were all healed. After the meeting we had counselling, the same set of people waited to see me
The first was an elderly woman who always experienced pain all over her body, she came with her daughter, son in law and grand daughter. The granddaughter was a witch who had confessed to witchcraft but had not been delivered from the cult.
I paid attention to the old woman as she complained about the same thing she had experienced on the healing line, when she was done, I told all of them to say out loud, “I am perfect in health because the Holy Spirit is a spirit of perfection and he dwells in me”
She said so and began to scream, at the same time her son-in-law becan to shiver, the granddaughter began to scream.
I didn’t pray for them again
The grandmother was healed first and the others got healed too
The young lady who had been a shadow of herself began to glow
by the power of the Holy Spirit
The entire family was set free when they acknowledged their perfection in Christ Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit
We will walk in conscious perfection this season and by the help of
the Holy Spirit, we shall experience completeness, excellence and the fullness of God bodily in Jesus name.
God’s Word is truth. Truth is different from fact.
I am a perfect being from a perfect God.
FOUR (4) THINGS THAT ARE NECESSARY
There is going to be an alignment. It’s a training. There will be an alignment of your will and purpose with God’s purpose and will.
It from the Greek Plerul. It means to be full. You will be full of God’s word. When this happens, you will be amazed at what will be produced.
I will be full of God’s Word. God’s Word will dwell in me richly.
This will bring you into that ultimate position. Excellence is not something you struggle for. It’s your nature. I have an excellent Spirit. Live your life every day and think just like this.
Ephesians 5:1KJV: Be ye, therefore, followers of God, as dear children
Luke 8:14 KJV: And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.
This means to come to fruition. It means to come to the state where it produces the result. It’s like a pregnant woman who carries her baby to the time of birth.
There will be no aborting of your plans. You will produce the result with your ideas. You will bring your babies to fruition.
Perfection is Possible
There’re many who don’t believe that perfection is possible. When you try to talk to them about perfection, they don’t want to hear it. With a sneer, they accuse you of being a “perfectionist,” because in their erroneous belief, “nobody can be perfect.” Yet, when you study the Word, there’s no place that suggests to us the impossibility of perfection. God doesn’t give us a chance not to be perfect. Everything about Him calls for perfection; He requires us to be perfect, not when we get to heaven, but here and now—in the earth!
The reason most people don’t think perfection is possible, which is why they’re not perfect, is that they don’t know what perfection is. Perfection is like success, which can be measured at different stages of your life, according to the set-out objectives, purpose, and goal. Perfection is measured according to the light, instruction, or information that you have with respect to the underlying objectives.
“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” “Teleios,” describes perfection in your heart; as completeness; measuring your heart with the heart of God. The way to do this is through the Word. Think, love and forgive as God wants you to—let your heart be like the Father’s heart.
The word “perfect” is also used in 2 Corinthians 13:11; it says, “Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect….” This time, another Greek word, “katartizo” is used for “perfect.” It means to do things perfectly. This is not the perfection in the heart (teleios) but of your actions: the things you do and how you do them. The emphasis here is on doing things impeccably right the first time. And the first step in achieving this is learning to pay attention to details!
A man or woman who walks consciously with the Holy Spirit can never walk in error
If you obey the Holy Spirit always, you will be perfect because perfection means doing what God wants as directed by the Holy Spirit at all times
Believe in perfection and don’t be intimidated by it. Your perfection will be judged according to the training and information that you’ve received, not the one you didn’t get. So, practise being perfect; think and talk perfection, because the Lord requires it of you.
