Beloved it is very very disheartening to see those who profess religion to distance themselves from or to be opposing vehemently God’s unchanging call to perfection.

The whole world, government of all nation’s , all organisations globally and individuals are tirelessly striving for impeccable perfection in all things. Because this is so, why should they ever be surprised that our loving Father in heaven is calling His children of all ages and you in particular to perfection.

God is not calling anyone or you to be perfect in knowledge like Him. But He is relentlessly calling the entire humanity, especially you, to be perfect morally, to be holy, to be sanctified, like Him.

And interestingly, there are enviable lifetime and eternal rewards, if you heed his call to perfection. See this.

Psalms 37:37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace

Dearly beloved, if anyone inside or outside the church despise God:s unchanging call to perfection, such people shall experience both lifetime and eternal regrets for doing so. See these.

Lifetime unrest for the wicked.

Isaiah 48:22 There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.

 

Eternal unrest for the wicked

Rev 14:10 — Rev 14:11 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

On the contrary, if anyone but most importantly you heed His call to perfection. See the rewards that shall be your portion in Jesus name

Lifetime Peace and rest.

Isaiah 14:3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,

Eternal Peace and rest.

Revelation 14:13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

Dearly beloved, it must interest you that before God calls His children of all ages and you in particular to be perfect, He has put in place, everything that can facilitate stress free perfection. See them.

Anointed heaven- focused ministers.

Ephesians 4:11-12 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

The ever potent and cleansing power of the eternal word of God.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

The precious blood of Jesus.

Hebrews 13:20-31 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Hebrews 10:14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

Beloved brethren, now that you have seen the enviable rewards and provision of God to make you perfect, see His unchanging lifetime call for all His children and you to be morally perfection.

Genesis 17:1 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.
Deuteronomy 18:13 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.
1 Kings 8:61 Let your heart therefore be perfect with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day.
Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
2 Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

Dearly beloved, I want to draw your attention to some things in the scriptures, concerning God”s unchanging call to perfection.

The reason why multitude of ministers in Christ universal church globally are quiet on God’s call to perfection, is because of the flagrant imperfections, noticeable to the congregation in their lives.

However,. King David knew he failed abysmally in the area of moral perfection, but encouraged his son , Solomon not to follow his bad example, but must strive to be perfect as God commanded.

1 Chronicles 28:9 And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.

He did not stop there. He spent time praying to God to help Solomon his son to be perfect according to His commandments.

1 Chronicles 29:18 -19 O LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, our fathers, keep this for ever in the imagination of the thoughts of the heart of thy people, and prepare their heart unto thee: And give unto Solomon my son a perfect heart, to keep thy commandments, thy testimonies, and thy statutes, and to do all these things, and to build the palace, for the which I have made provision.

Another striking thing about God”s unchanging call to perfection, was what our Lord Jesus Christ did.

He walked in total perfection during His earthly ministry.

John 17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

Jesus Christ our Lord did not give the impression to His followers that He was perfect, because of who He was. But compelled all His followers of all ages and you in particular, to be perfect like Him.

Luke 6:40 The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.

Even after His ascension to heaven, He insisted from glory that His church must be perfect and He frowns against every form of imperfections.

Rev 3:1 — Rev 3:2 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

Beloved, pause and think about it. If Job, before grace could be morally perfect, then you have no excuse not to be. See these.

Job 1:8 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?
Job 2:3 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? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.

So determinedly henceforth to be morally perfect.

2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of
God.

Beloved, see what to do, to help you to attain moral perfection.

1. Consecrating for biblical perfection

Romans 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

2. Thirsting for biblical perfection

Matthew 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

3. Praying earnestly for biblical perfection

Colossians 4:12 Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.

The good Lord shall help you in particular to be perfect and enjoy the rewards here and hereafter in Jesus name.
