"That We May Present Each Believer Perfect in Christ"

Truth is so offensive that so many "Christian" churches today either hide it or water it down. I'm tired of hearing church people say that we cannot be perfect or being born again does not make you perfect. And yet countless times in Scriptures God points me to his Word powerfully stressing perfection in Christ.

In fact, genuine ministry, according to the bible, is a Jesus-discipleship that aims to present each believer "perfect in Christ." Now, church smart alecks (who are really fools) would counter that and say we cannot take that literally and we have to know proper systematic interpretation of Scriptures, and other such baloney. 

Paul was clear when he stressed to the Colossian church that he labored to present each one PERFECT IN CHRIST [Col.1.28], and that he did this using NOT his own efforts but Jesus' efforts (struggling with all God's or Jesus' energy} which he claimed so powerfully worked in him. The reason churches today cannot attain perfection in Christ is that they always use their own efforts and plans and strategies and ways and wisdom, etc.

Only Jesus can accomplish God's will perfectly, so you have to die to self and let Jesus Christ live your life for you and do God's ministry through your body. You have to be God's flesh on earth, establishing God's Kingdom here as it is in heaven. Otherwise, everything will be trash. Many church ministers do church ministry all their lives using their own efforts and denominational ways (which are nothing but rotten human ways backed up by some bible verses to make them look spiritual), expecting to be rewarded by the Master. They will meet Jesus with frustration when God tells them, "I do not know you..." because the Father's eyes seek Jesus in you alone, not you.

If you desire to please God and get Kingdom points for it, make sure it is my Jesus Christ in you doing everything from start to finish. And my Jesus will never start with any denominational doctrine or procedures or ways or policies, no matter how bible-based they sound. Church denomination is NEVER God's will or way.

God's power and energy should be mightily at work in our bodies (and that alone--no human effort) so we can use that to "struggle" (really put our lives into it), aiming to make our disciples perfect in Christ. It's all about being perfect in Christ--and this means being able to say with Paul, that "it's no longer I who live but Jesus Christ who lives in me."

Spiritual Perfection: LIFE, Character, Power, Authority

Nope, your flat nose will still be flat, your skin color will remain, your hair texture will stay the same unless you re-style it at the hair dresser's shop, and so many of your other physical features will be intact, unchanged. Spiritual perfection is really all about life, character and spiritual power and authority. Yes, you will still commit mistakes (mistakes that have nothing to do with sin), but God aims to eliminate from our system even mistakes, in this life, because he wants Jesus to fully live our lives.

Now, here's a point we should never forget. My Jesus lived a perfectly holy life on earth and yet many saw him as imperfect. They saw him as "mad," trouble maker, wrong, unable to interpret the old Testament according to their standards, law breaker, insolent, demon possessed, etc. If the Son of Man was treated thus, we will be similarly treated by the world, more so by the worldly "Christian" church (synagogue of Satan), even if we live the Jesus LIFE on earth, being God's flesh. The world will always see God's perfection as wrong and imperfect. The world has a different idea of what is right and perfect.

God wants nothing less than perfection for us. And we have to re-align our lives accordingly and trash our garbage doctrines that run counter to God's plan of perfection for all believers. We must "aim for perfection" [2 Cor.13.11] now and stop giving excuses for our spiritual weaknesses and propensity to sin. It is God's will that we should be holy, and perfectly at that. And the key to this is Galatians 2.20 - "I have died with Christ; it's not anymore I who live but Jesus Christ who lives my life daily."

It should be my Jesus living your life, doing church ministry, discipling others. Be God's flesh.

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.
