1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (MCV) Know ye not that the unrighteous (unjust bent judges) shall not inherit The Kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers (miscegenators), nor effeminate (soy boys and transgenders), nor abusers of themselves with mankind (sodomites and pederasts), 10 Nor thieves (lawyers and bankers), nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners (politicians), shall inherit The Kingdom of God.
Perhaps I should have put it another way: will Commandment Obeyers (not Commandment Keepers – see link No. 1 below), and those who STRIVE, and who openly admit that they are still sinners, and thereby imperfect, inherit The Kingdom of God? I mean, come on, because these people privately, if not publicly, truly think they are God’s gift!! I tell you folks, they really think THEIR best is good enough (see link Nos. 2 and 3 below). How delusional is that? Answer: it’s as delusional these fellas, and from the lips of Yashua Messiah Himself:
Matthew 5:20 (MCV) “For I say unto you, That except your righteousness (perfection and justice) shall exceed the righteousness of the Jewish scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case (no way) enter into The Kingdom of God.”
OK, so here we have two groups of people (the Jewish Scribes and the Pharisees) who were recognised by Yashua Messiah as the best exemplary and well behaved people of their society in first century Judea. He lifts them up as pinnacles of righteousness within a Roman governed outpost of the barbaric and heathen Roman Empire.
He then states quite clearly that unless our righteousness (perfection and justice) does not exceed that of those people we will in no way enter The Kingdom of God. So how do we achieve, what appears to be, this unobtainable or unattainable perfection?
We first need to know that these boys dotted every ‘i’ and crossed every ‘t’ in the book of The Torah – The Whole Law which included The Commandments, and no doubt the satanic Talmud (Aramaic Targums) as well. These boys OBEYED the lot, every jot and tittle of The Whole Law and without fail – never an error nor a mistake. This is how ‘perfect’ they were and yet Yashua Messiah clearly states that OUR righteousness (perfection and justice) must exceed that, so, again, how do we do it?
That’s easy or, at least, for a FEW of us it is easy. Others find it difficult beyond measure, that is, totally impossible, for some strange reason, but never mind them. Look, dear readers, it’s easy, because all we have to do is BELIEVE!!! Believe what, I hear you ask? Believe that EVERYTHING has been done for you. It was all finished at the stake/cross and everything fulfilled for those who willingly, voluntarily and Truthfully believe (put their whole trust and Faith) in Yashua Messiah for their salvation – that’s it – period.
So what are you saying, are you saying we do nothing? No, what I am saying is that you humbly repent and confess ALL your sins – past, present and future and get Baptised into Yashua Messiah’s name alone, not into the pagan heathen trinity, and receive The Gift of The Holy Spirit. You are then Born of God and are now perfect and sinless as John confirms for us here:
1 John 3:6 (KJV) Whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him.
1 John 3:9 (KJV) Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for His Seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
How can it be so simple I hear you say? How, because it’s an open display of “The Simplicity that is in Christ”. His ways are not our ways and they are not burdensome and complicated, and His yoke is Light:
2 Corinthians 11:3 (KJV) But I fear, lest by any means, as The Serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from The Simplicity that is in Christ.
The Serpent is the author of confusion of bloods and complexity, and complexity is the way he confuses. When we read the complicated works of blatherers and babblers, you know the type, that is, those who prattle on with paragraph after paragraph of meaningless drivel and nonsense, we then know we’re not dealing with: “the simplicity that is in Christ”. Complexity is one of the ‘fruits’ of thorns and briers, and the only one who is edified by these stupid writings is the vain egotistic author, himself, and no one else.
Look, I know I have digressed here a little but, it’s still relevant to this perfection/imperfection subject, if only in focussing on the weird phenomena in that the Commandment Obeyers become perfect in their mastery of imperfection. Much mirth here for the author.
Moreover, why is it that this perfection issue is portrayed as if it is unattainable or impossible to obtain? It’s almost as if there is a demonic conspiracy to deny followers of Yashua Messiah this crucial knowledge and discourage us, which, of course, there is. The Lord here clearly speaks it out:
Luke 6:40 (KJV) The disciple is not above his Master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his Master.
Everyone that IS perfect shall be as his Master. Notice, He is not saying everyone who aspires to be perfect or struggles and STRIVES hopelessly to be more like Yashua Messiah, (whatever that means) and/or with obedience to The Law, who may then become perfect – if he’s lucky LOL. He is certainly not saying through self-help and ‘salvation by works’ graft you will earn perfection or by some wretched self-righteous process as did the Pharisees.
Now notice this same verse in the Greek MSS transliteral:
Luke 6:40 (Greek Transliteral) Not is Learner over the Teacher of-him having-been-DOWN-EQUIPPED yet every shall-be as the Teacher of-him.
Can you see what Yashua Messiah is saying here? I do hope so: Everyone that is DOWN EQUIPPED shall be as his Teacher or Master. This means everyone who is born from above, born of God or born again, will be DOWN EQUIPPED and made like his Master – sinless and perfect.
Let this verse, too, sink in and permeate your whole being:
1 John 3:3 (KJV) And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as He is pure.
Here’s a penultimate question: If we’re as pure as Yashua Messiah through keeping our hope and faith in Him, do you not think that we are now perfect and sinless, or has purity taken on a new polluted meaning just to keep the Commandment Obeyers happy in their wretchedness? Yet more mirth for the author.
To finish off, here is another good example re Sabbath observance and we all know how central this topic is to the wretched Commandment keepers, yet what do The Holy Scriptures say about Yashua Messiah’s real Sabbath Rest? (See link Nos. 4 and 5 below)
Hebrews 3:17-19 (KJV) But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into His Rest, but to them that believed not? 19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
Moses was grieved for forty years by stubborn stiff-necked unbelievers who refused to enter The Promised Land – The Lord’s Rest and so it is today with those who refuse to enter into His Sinless Perfection and His Eternal Rest and ALL through UNBELIEF.
This is how wretched they are folks, only worse than those Israelites in the wilderness, because Yashua Messiah has now died for them and risen in order to give them, as a free gift, a new perfect and sinless state of being, which they do not want. This is staggeringly unbelievable but, sadly True, none-the-less so do not be deceived by them.
In Yashua Messiah’s Holy name
