I Corinthians 2:6a Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect:
Be careful to understand these verses.
Ephesians 4:11-13 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:
This perfection is for the faith and power to manifest; back to I Corinthians:
I Corinthians 2:1-6 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. 2For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 3And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 4And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 5That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
6Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:
Psalm 18:30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of Yahuweh is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.
Psalm 19:7 The law of Yahuweh is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of Yahuweh is sure, making wise the simple.
By these scriptures perfection is a process!
Hebrews 10:10-18 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 11And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: 12But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; 13From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. 14For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. 15Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, 16This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith Yahuweh, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. 18Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
Does the bible contradict itself? They do not. Pastors and teachers are to bring you to the knowledge and fullness of Christ’s sacrifice and His laws written on your heart; the New Covenant. Faith, forgiveness,(of oneself and others) love, longsuffering, mercy, and justice (right judgment). These and especially Jesus’ gospel message should be on our lips.
Philippians 3:9-15 12Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
Father we continue to seek perfection through faith in the New Covenant; Your promise to Israel, Your laws written upon our heart by Your Sons sacrifice for us and the gift of the Holy Ghost to guide and comfort. Halle lu YAH
