|2 Corinthians 13:9|
9 We are glad when we are weak and you are strong; and we also pray for your perfection.3
|1 John 2:5|
5 But whoever obeys his spoken words [obeys the Lord's commands spoken to him], truly the love of God is perfected in him;1 by this we know that we are in him. [Anyone who claims to be in Christ when they are not crucified is taking His name in vain; or doing anything while stating you do it in His name or in the name of Jesus is also taking His name in vain.]
40 The disciple is not above his master, but everyone who is perfect [purified, restored to the spiritual image of God, specifically authorized, and perfected] will be like his master. [To preach or teach with authorization, your evil heart must first be cleansed, purified, and perfected so you can hear from God every word to be spoken and see every deed to be done. If you are following an unperfected minister, you have been led into the ditch. Unperfected ministers seek their own glory and your money. Jesus told us to leave the unperfected, thus blind guides, which blindness he further discusses in the next verses.]
|2 Timothy 3:17|
17 So that the man of God may be complete and equipped for all good works.4
|1 Corinthians 2:6|
6 However we speak wisdom in those who are perfect;1 yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the rulers of this world who come to nothing.
|1 Peter 5:10 |
10 But after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called us to his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, will make you perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.
