For all The Fullness of The Deity dwells in him bodily. And you also are completed in him, who is The Head of all Principalities and Powers Colossians 2:9-10 Aramaic Bible in Plain English
Have you ever heard or said, “Well, nobody’s perfect!” Sure you have, we have all said it probably at one time or another. But let’s see what God’s Word says about it because that is the thing that matters.
The LORD will perfect [that which] concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, [endureth] for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands. Psalm 138:8 KJV
The word perfect in that verse is the Hebrew word gamar. It means to end, come to an end or complete.
Since the law has only a shadow of the good things to come, and not the actual form of those realities, it can never perfect the worshipers by the same sacrifices they continually offer year after year. Hebrews 10:1 Holman Christian Standard Bible
The word perfect in the above verse is the greek word teleioo. Very similar to the Hebrew word gamar. Teleioo means to to bring to an end, to complete, perfect, to consummate, bring to its end stage. The verse shows the greatness of the New Testament versus the Old as it says that the law could never perfect the worshippers(you) because it was just a shadow.
For he found fault with them, and he said, “Behold, the days are coming, says THE LORD JEHOVAH, and I will perfect a New Covenant for the family of the house of Israel and for the family of the house of Judah.” Hebrews 8:8 Aramaic Bible in Plain English
We are of the house of Judah just as Jesus was and it is through Him that we are of that house. We are also spiritual Israel. The Lord Himself here says the New Covenant will be perfect and it is. He never said that of the Old covenant. So what we have is a multiplicity of scriptures that talk about us being or becoming complete or perfect. How is that? Because the New Covenant is all about and all for US. So what does this have to do with you with all your apparent faults and mistakes and missteps? EVERYTHING!!! Because you are in Him, in Christ Jesus, The Word says YOU ARE COMPLETE IN HIM. Not that you are going to be but you are. The law could never make you perfect but Jesus Who is GRACE and TRUTH has made you perfect in and through Himself. It’s not based on what you done or have not done. Look at this scripture
In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what He suffered Hebrews 2:10 New International Version
God the Father made Jesus the man PERFECT through what “HE” suffered. Not what you suffer. You have no business suffering because He already suffered for you. If we all were going to suffer, then Jesus could have stayed at home, saved Himself the beating, the spit, the crown of thorns and everything else. Because Jesus was made perfect and you are in Him YOU ARE PERFECT!!!!
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. I John 4:17 KJV
By this Love(God the Father) is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment, because just as Jesus is, so also are we in this world. I John 4:17 NET Bible
So our love is even made perfect through Jesus. Our perfection is in Christ not in ourselves. So if Jesus says you are perfect, who are you going to believe? Are you going to believe Him, the world or yourself?
