Useless to Aim for Perfection

Before anything else, I say, Aim for Perfection, NOW!

I have heard countless "ordained" ministers and other church workers who belong to "holiness" churches declare with confidence, pride, and finality that aiming for perfection "is useless." They add that "it is impossible to be perfect in this world and life." And by this they mean living a perfect holy life in God. They say that as long as we're humans we will sin. Then, they talk about how grace makes us go to heaven even while we sin here.

Well, if you think like the above, you'll lose the present Move of God. You're always deceived by the enemy. Imagine how many churches think like that--that perfection is useless and unrealistic; that's the same number of churches that are actually synagogues of Satan. For one, grace is not a license to sin. Grace frees us (not excuses us) from sin (Rom.6.14).

We cannot be perfect in the eyes of this world. We cannot be perfect to people. And that's not what I'm talking about. We must be perfect in God's eyes. If you claim to believe Jesus but you say perfection is impossible and useless then there's something wrong with you.

If perfection now is useless and unrealistic, then they're saying my Jesus was a big liar. He is the author of perfection; he declared: "Be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect." The term, "be perfect," means "be now perfect!" And in the context, he was referring to perfection in living out the beatitudes. Spiritual perfection. If you're perfect spiritually, your mind and soul follow suit. Later, on a higher level, even your body and surroundings follow. Imagine if the whole church were perfect now like this! In the last days, God will set this in motion on those who truly believe.

Among reasons why the church is powerless is because they do not believe in perfection. They believe in excuses for sinning. 

Look at what Paul said: "Aim for perfection" (2Cor.13.11). He also said (I believe he would also say this of denominations if he were alive today in the flesh), "Watch out for those who divide the church and put obstacles in your way, teaching ways that are contrary from those you learned from us. Get away from them. Those people are not serving Jesus Christ but their own appetites. By smooth talk and deception they fool naive people," (Rom.16).

Aim for perfection. Jesus, through the awesome power of the Holy Spirit, being fully and 100 percent living in you, makes you perfect, if you only believe.

How to Know If a Ministry is Failing in God's Eyes

It's easy to see if a ministry is really failing. Remember, God is spirit. The only way to please him is in spirit and in truth. You cannot please God by your church building, church income, membership size or Sunday worship programs.

Actually, the ministry Jesus showed us in the bible was so simple. It's super simple, in fact. It's mainly on preaching, miraculous healing, and discipleship. Just these three. We don't have to add anything to this. Jesus did only these three and he did well. He pleased the Father to the max.

Preaching

You don't have to be a titled preacher to do this. Just share the Word. All you need is knowledge of the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit. These two equip you to the max. The Word of God is God breathed "so that the man of God may be adequate, fully equipped for every good work," [2 Timothy 3.17].

You see the words, "fully eq…

Micah: Statutes of Omri and Practices of Ahab

It begins with the statutes of Omri (Micah 6.16). Omri was a follower of the evil ways of Jeroboam (1Kings16). He laid down the statutes (or doctrines) and Ahab his son applied and developed them. These are all against being God's flesh on earth.

Omri’s statutes were simple: they were based on wicked and corrupt ways as King Jeroboam did them. How did Jeroboam do them? Simply by doing God’s will in man’s ways. He disobeyed the prophet Ahijah who told him to do everything in God’s ways alone: “If you do everything I command you and walk in my ways and do whatever is correct in my eyes...I will build you a dynasty...”(1Kings11).

Jeroboam grabbed God's will of kingship but did it in greed. Man's ways are nothing but greed, no matter how they try to make it look religious or spiritual or "Christian."

But because of his greed for corrupt power he did everything wicked—he did everything in man’s ways. He always “thought to himself” and not to God, and he revived the …

God as Your Stronghold

"My Life's Stronghold is God." -Ps.27
We read about it several times in the bible that God is a stronghold. Do we know what "stronghold" means? Often, we associate "stronghold" with the devil, like "the devil's stronghold." So, what do we mean by God is my stronghold? How does God become a stronghold. If you don't know what it means to have God as stronghold, that's a stronghold.
Devil as Stronghold
When a person has strong propensities to sin and evil, we say that it's due to a stronghold. And we mean that the devil's hold on that person is really strong. No matter how much that person wants to change and start going to church, he just can't. When presented with a situation that makes him choose between good and evil, he is likely to choose evil even if in his mind he wants good. If he chooses good, it'll just be for a moment---probably 5 seconds---and then be back to evil again. That's a stronghold.
