 10 But when that which is perfect has come, then what is only partial shall be abolished. [that which is perfect, is the appearance of Jesus Christ, resurrected in a man; the man becoming a totally new creature, walking in the newness of lifethe life of God, in his light, through his eyes.]

 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.1 [Note! If you lack nothing, then you have everything possible, (including fellowship with Christ and the Father, raised to heaven, sitting with Christ in the kingdom, in union with Christ and God, free from even the desire to sin, pure, holy, permanently perfected, protected from ever sinning again — all while still alive on earth), as Paul wrote the perfect man does: Until we all come to the unity of the faith, and the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; Eph 4:13. If you are a perfect man and possess the fullness of Christ, you have everything possible.]
