Message of the Day: We Aim to Be Perfect on the Day When We Appear before God.

To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.” (Colossians 1:27-28, NKJV)

Paul’s message reveals to people the plan of God that had not been made known to previous generations. This secret plan is that Gentiles are to be his people, indwelt by Christ. Once the apostle has brought people to know Christ, he must teach and instruct them so that they might grow to spiritual maturity. Paul knows that much hard work is necessary in order to reach this goal. (1:26-29)

The Gnostics used the term “perfect” or “complete” (mature, full-grown man, spiritual adult Christian) to refer to those who had become possessors of the secrets or knowledge boasted by the particular religion. It is possible that Paul uses the same reference here. By means of the Gospel we aim to be perfect on the day when we appear before God.

  1. The Gnostics, did not, do not believe, Jesus came here to Earth in the Flesh. That is what the 1 John Letter is all about, the Gnostic belief, misunderstood by many today, that has been turned into to get more forgiveness, when in truth that part is completed in Christ’s one time death, once for all.

    To have to become perfect, is not by the flesh at all, since no flesh can ever please God. And that ios where the Gnostics picked up the Idea that Christ could not have been here on earth in the flesh, which denies his Virgin Birth

    Christ was Born Perfect, through a Virgin Woman Mary of the tribe of Judah
    To say I believe and not believe Christ was on Earth physically is unbelief to what God Father has done for us through Son
    That is what I see, in belief to be free.
    Now the part that “I” have to learn to be good enough is to not sin ever again.
    GOOD LUCK, just think of a wrong doing and one is guilty

    Paul saw this and so asked God about it, just like the Disciples did that too in Matthew 19, they asked Christ how then is it possible fort anyone to enter Heaven?

    2 Cor 12:7-10, God tells Paul his Grace is sufficient
    Wow, as man continues to work for salvation, God by himself in his Son first took away sin for us all. To give us new life, not to earn it, work for it, or keep it by rituals

    I understand the want to, yet I see it is not “I” that sins, once born again, by Father of in the risen Christ for me and all the world.

    Enter his Rest, not this world’s work for rest
    Hebrews 4:9-13

    Ask God Father to reveal this truth, and if one is in beleif, God will reveal this to each of his Kids
    Thanks
    Everyone is free to choose, the Foundation is Christ crucified for us all to either believe or not believe to Father of the Son, that he is risen where new life is given.
    If that means one will not sin anymore, then the truth is not in them

    Sin is taking away free will from self and or anyone else
    Anything without Faith Belief is sin
    Lover you Brother
