Scripture Reading: Matthew 5:44-48
I don’t mean for the title to sound pretentious, but this is a Bible study on perfection. To assuage any misapprehensions and to state my case early, I won’t be talking about sinless perfection, for “If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us” I John 1:10. In today’s reading of Matthew, the point in question is not the sinlessness of God or His Creation of supernatural perfection, but rather our growth into a maturity of godliness; not to be Christ, but to be like Christ. We’ve seen the bumper sticker ‘We’re not perfect – just forgiven.’ If we were perfect, there would be nothing to forgive. So what does it mean to be perfect like God? Do we become gods? God forbid, that would be the deification of man and there is only one God in Christianity, “There is none else” (Isaiah 45:5). Obviously, God knew the future and made the #1 commandment to preempt anyone, “Who is opposing and exalting himself above everything said to be a god” (II Thes. 2:4) with “Thou shalt have no other gods before Me” (Ex. 20:2).
I’m going to show you that we have the capacity to be perfect and that we should have a healthy desire for it, since God requires it of us.
What’s going on with the person that continually says, “Well, nobody’s perfect” or “Only Jesus is perfect”? What’s going on is apples and oranges. Have they not heard of Mt. 5:48 “Be ye perfect”? Why are Christians gun shy about perfection; why this mindset of denial? This subject may be boring to some people, but it’s anything but mediocre. In the judeo-Christian world, the jew regards our people as goyim or cattle and inculcates the idea of tolerance for imperfections. Actually, being overcomers, we can be perfect and forgiven. However, why would an enemy want us to overcome our failures? They wouldn’t. They want us to remain bored stiff, half awake or mesmerized with the world of worldliness. We’re going to look at what it means to be perfect and the consequences of what it means not to be perfect.
First, we must define our terms to alleviate any confusion. Webster’s gives us many aspects of the word ‘perfect’ as a noun and a verb (with slightly different pronunciations). I won’t give all definitions, but the ones that apply to our study.
- Perfect, noun. 1. Expert, proficient. 2a. being entirely without fault or defect, flawless. b. satisfying all requirements, accurate [as in 100% accuracy]. c. corresponding to an ideal standard. d. faithfully reproducing the original. 3. Pure, complete, sane. 4. Maturity [“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior” II Peter 3:18; having grace brings the believer to the highest relationship with God possible, to impart and perfect in him the corresponding blessings]. Perfect implies the soundness or excellence of something unattainable or theoretical, but something implied doesn’t mean that it can’t be attained, sought or gained.
- Verb. 1. Improve, refine. 2. To bring to final form, complete.
One of the definitions of perfection is saintliness, an example of supreme excellence. Adam was made in the image of God, by God sharing His own breath or Spirit, to not only give us life, but perfect health and immortality, to resemble Him mentally, morally and socially. It enabled Adam to commune with His Creator. It set Adam apart from the animals and other races to have dominion of the entire earth. Our conscience is a vestige of that original state. Today we still bear the image of God, but we also bear the scars of sin. The Good News is that God redeems His people, He begins to restore the original image of God. That redemption is only available to one race of people by grace through faith. “Therefore if any man [Adam] be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” II Cor. 5:17.
The first mention of the word ‘perfect’ in the Bible is Gen. 6:9 where, “Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” Why? Because, he was, “Perfect in his generations.” The Hebrew word for ‘perfect’ is tamiym (#8549 taw-meem) and means without blemish, undefiled, sound and whole. Noah and his family were racially pure Adamites. Later in Gen. 17:1 God told Abraham, “Walk before Me and be thou perfect .” Another Hebrew word for ‘perfect’ is shalem (#8003 shaw-lame) and means complete, especially friendly; just, peaceable, quiet and whole – it comes from #7999 to be safe, completed, to reciprocate, make amends and restitution, to make good. We see this word in Deut. 25:15 having “perfect just weights and measures.” And it’s also applied to our heart-attitude; in I Kings 15:3 Abijam’s heart was not perfect, but in verse 14, Asa, the king of Judah, his heart was perfect with the Lord.
If you don’t want to be perfect, what do want to be? The flipside is imperfection, a bad attitude, and anything in between is lukewarm. Hold that thought! There are more definitions. II Chron. 4:21 is talking about the “perfect gold” of the temple flowers, lamps and tongs. This is #4357 and means completion (as in the sense of a pen or enclosure for a flock of sheep); it means the job is done; the goal is accomplished; it’s the end of a matter. In Job we have another usage of the word ‘perfect’ (#8535) describing him as being upright, morally pious, gentle, plain, undefiled.
Psalms 64:4 is talking about our mortal enemies “That they may shoot in secret at the perfect.” The KJV has a margin note that says the word ‘perfect’ implies whole-heartedness of God, single-mindedness and sincerity, not sinless perfection. Being perfect can logically reduce our sins, but if we were without sin, we would have no need for the God of our race to rescue us from the judgment and curse of alien philosophies. To whore after strange gods and the strangers that don’t believe in repentance for wrongdoing is delusional, if not insanity. Why did God give us prophets and teachers? “For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till 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: That we from now on be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, by which they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, who is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body being fitly joined together and knit together by that which every joint supplies, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, makes increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love” Eph. 4:11-16. But biblical perfection is much more than this misunderstood use of it i.e. sinlessness. Therefore, we should not reject what the Bible has to say about perfecting the White race, the true Israel, God’s chosen people.
There’s a great lesson to be learned from Ps. 64:1-10. Our enemies may think they’re a perfect shot, that they can hit the bulls eye every time, but they are mere imitators, just like the magicians of Pharaoh’s court or Job’s self righteous friends or the kingship of Saul or the Pharisees that crucified Christ. They all perfected or completed an ideal, although evil. Each of those adversaries was perfect in a negative sense. You can read Ps. 64 for yourself and see the contrast between David and those who have every intention to ambush and wound him with slander. It’s like reading a poetic counter imprecatory or reverse curse. The wicked studiously and with force prepare their speech as bended bows, and then with cool, deliberate aim, they let fly the arrow which they have dipped in bitterness. To sting, to inflict anguish, to destroy, is their one design. They are anti-perfect; that is to say they are evil men plotting against the blameless, the innocent. David had but the one resource of prayer against the twofold weapons of the wicked, for defense against sword or arrow he used the one defense of faith in God. And what a perfect example today of the negro beast Obama with his literal and phonic drone missiles killing people. If we pray as earnest as did David, our complaint will reach unto the heavens and secret societies, who will not accept fair combat towards the Christian soldier, who doesn’t have the mind to imitate their despicable modes of warfare, and do you know what? God shall shoot at them suddenly. An unbelief in God’s knowledge of all things is at the bottom of every wickedness. When it appears that nothing can help us against an invasion of calumnies, we have God alone who is always present to help. Obama will come to a perfect end, thinking he has no one to fear and “All the upright in heart shall glory.”
Psalms 138:8 says, “The Lord will perfect that which concerns me.” That is to say, God will complete what He has started; He will not leave His work unfinished. The word ‘perfect’ here is #1584 and means to end; in the sense of completion or failure, (He will cause something ) to cease, come to an end, fail. In a positive light, the sinner comes to repentance. In a negative light, the reprobate comes to destruction. God is going to perfect the judeo-Christian church to fall flat on its face; the apostate church will come to a perfect end. God is starting with the biggest and badest mockeries of the ecclesia and around here that would be the money pit called ‘Answers In Genesis.’ As Ken Ham thinketh, so shall he be: millions of dollars swirl into his coffers and millions will spiral down the toilet with one flush. Rome’s ‘bread and circuses’ came to an end; empire’s rise and fall; the Lord will perfect that which concerns us.
Well, how does the Greek compare to the Hebrew; the OT idea of perfection with the NT? Actually it ‘completes’ the divine thought for how we are to regard it. #5048G means to complete, accomplish, consummate in character or personalities, consecrate, finish, fulfill; and comes from #5046 complete in various applications of labor, growth, mental and moral character. #199G means exact(ly); as found in Luke 1:3, “Having had perfect understanding of all things” referring to Christ, so that we may know for a certainty what God has instructed. #2675G means to complete thoroughly i.e. repair, adjust or restore as in Luke 6:40, “The disciple is not above his Master, but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.” In I Thes. 3:10 Paul is writing about his brethren, “Praying to see them again and might perfect what is lacking in their faith”… why? Verse 13 says to establish their hearts unblameable in holiness before God at the coming of Christ.
This begs the question: how can anyone enter the Kingdom if they are without sinlessness? Didn’t we start this study with the premise that all have sinned? We hardly ever hear about justification in Christian Identity. It’s found in Romans 8:1, “There is therefore no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” When we repent, where is the sin? It’s gone! It’s a whole new ballgame. We are complete Christians as far as it is possible to establish. Our life is like a chalkboard and we chalk up our sins, but when we repent, our sins are erased. “For as by one man’s disobedience [Adam] many were made sinners, so by the obedience on one [Jesus] shall many be made righteous” Romans 5:19. We perfect our growth in Christ. This activity was never meant for other races to pursue, and they don’t because they can’t, no matter how hard they try. Here’s the context, “Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham [is this spiritualized children? Let’s look at the context]… Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He does not say, And to seeds, as of many, but rather to one, And to your seed, who is Christ” Gal. 3:6-7, 16. Christ is of our race. How do I know? The Bible tells me so. We can prove all things and show why it’s a good thing and practice the truth to perfection and then get an inkling why it will make us free.
I John 4:12 proclaims that, “No man has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwells in us, and His love is perfected in us.” Who is the “us”? Verse 19, “We love Him, because He first loved us.” Is “us” everybody? Nope, but it’s narrowing it down as to who could possibly qualify for this love relationship. Let’s go back to verse 10, “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” Propitiation is not atonement, but rather reconciliation through His unconditional sacrifice given to us freely. Here’s the big question: who was Christ sent to in order to reconcile their sins? Mt. 15:24 gives us the answer from Jesus, “I have not been sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
We no sooner read this and the universalist rears his ugly head to include the mud huts and ghettos of the third world by distorting I John 2:2, “And He is a propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but for the whole society.” Scholars place the Apostle John in Ephesus and in this verse he is talking about his fellow Christian Ephesians as well as the “whole society” of Israelites wherever they reside. The KJV is a poor translation that renders it, “for the sins of the whole world.” The Greek word for “world” here is kosmos (#2889) and it never means the whole planet. It has a racial import as understood by the Greek world at the time of Christ i.e. a social order or geographic arrangement of White inhabitants, it was where Adamkind dwelt, not racial aliens or mamzers. 1st John is one of the most intimate and inspired of writings of the NT dealing with our race as a family matter. The OT reflects the same thing found in Amos 3:2, “You only have I known of all the families of the earth.” A synonym for “known” is loved. Of all the families or races of the earth, only Adamic/Israelites are my brethren, God’s Covenant People. Therefore our love for one another is within our own race. The expression ‘The Family of Man’ is a nauseating cliché for multiculturalism that can never have the biblical meaning of family or man. A sure recipe for disaster is to set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother (Deut. 17:15). The fruit of an affirmative action animal ruling over us is before our society and the fruit can only be corrupt.
Finally in our word study, John is warning the church in Sardis and in Rev. 3:2, “I have not found thy works perfect before God.” The word ‘perfect’ here is #4137 and means to make replete, filled full, fulfilled. However, in verses 4-5 there were a few overcomers who were undefiled and he says they shall be clothed in white because they’re worthy. The Ferrar Fenton says, “The conqueror shall be arrayed in white robes” and that their name will be in the Book of Life. Maybe those who make fun of white robes calling them sheets won’t be laughing when they find out their names aren’t in the Book of Life.
We can see from all these definitions of the word ‘perfect’ that we have a common denominator of the idea of being ‘complete’ i.e. full in measure, ideal in quality and the components of the whole fitting together exactly. The idea is not necessarily precision, but rather an approximation to exactness. When applied to God it is absolute precision; with man it is conformity to the ideal.
David claims to be perfect in this sense, from Ps. 18:23, “I was upright, I kept myself from… iniquity.” And Ps. 139:22, “I hate them with a perfect hatred; I count them my enemies.” Although elsewhere we read, “I acknowledge my transgressions; and my sin is ever before me” with David’s follow-up. “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me” Ps. 51:3, 10. This kind of perfection was attained by many of the hero’s of Israel’s history. God’s Law commands us to have the aspiration to attain it: “Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God” Deut. 18:13. The verses just before speak of heathen abominations and idolatrous practices. The verses just after promise prophets from our own race that will speak the Word of God.
In the NT, perfection becomes more of an ethical absolute, superseding OT statute with Jesus Christ as our example. “God called you to endure suffering because Christ suffered for you. He left you an example so that you could follow in His footsteps: He who did no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth” I Peter 2:21-22. Sinlessness, as to the mouth, is a mark of perfection. “Teach and transmit these things. Let no man despise your youthfulness, you should be an example for other believers in speech, in behavior, in love, in faith and in purity. Until I come, give your attention to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation and teaching. Neglect not the grace that is in you, which was given to you through the interpretation of Scripture, when the elders of the church laid their hands on you. Practice these things. Devote your life to them so that your progress will be evident to all. Pay attention to your soul and to your teachings; persevere in them, for when you do these things you will bring life to your soul and to those who hear you” I Tim. 4:11-16. This is the outward positive performance of Christian duty and thus the perfect Christian.
But added to that is the light shed on the blood shed at Calvary. Hebrews 7:11 asks the question, “If perfection were by the Levitical priesthood (whom the people received the Law) what further need was there for another priesthood?” The reference is to the order of Melchisedec. When Christ was crucified and then was resurrected from the dead, a supernatural miracle occurred for the next 2000 years. White people believed and acted to promote the teachings of Jesus Christ with their lives and our faith has survived through the perfect sacrifice; lives martyred in persecution and oppression. The perfect Christian is acutely aware of Mt. 10:39, “He that finds his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake shall find it.” The fear of death, which is a preoccupation of living, is replaced with a perfect understanding of the promises of God to His people. Hebrews 7:19 makes this startling remark, “For the Law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did, by which we are brought near to God.” The High Priest of our profession holds His office by the power of endless life in Himself; not only to keep Himself alive, but to give spiritual and eternal life to all who rely upon His sacrifice and intercession.
This is the doctrine of perfection: as Jesus spoke to the young rich ruler in Mt. 19:21FF, “If you wish to be perfect… sell all your possessions and give it to the poor and you will secure a treasure in heaven and then come and follow Me.” Christ is not telling us to sell everything and take care of the poor (Mark 14:7 says, “You will always have the poor with you”), He was speaking just for the rich kid, but no doubt each one of have challenges that Christ would tailor for us as well. The point is made in Luke 9:23, “And He [Jesus] said to them all, if any [White] man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” And here’s the kicker: Heb. 10:14, “For by one offering [Calvary] He has perfected for perpetuity those being sanctified.” Well, what does that mean? It means that God allows us to grow into a complete physical, mental, spiritual and moral character set apart for His purposes through the truth of His Word.
I’ve taken considerable time to examine critical words so that we all can better understand what it means to “Be ye perfect.” When we as a people collectively put our mind to obeying the intent of God’s instructions, which we can glean from the past (the history of our race is not one continuous car wreck; sometimes it’s just intermittent fender benders; and on rare occasions it’s a joy ride taking the scenic route without any accidents), we remember the rock from whence we were hewn and remove ourselves from the rat race to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.
Our shepherds have abandoned the nobility of virtue, to climb the highest peaks of perfection, to discipline their wants and desires as a student and disciple of the Truth. The resultant disaster is an enemy who is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for somebody to devour; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter, because our people are less than perfect. We’ve let our guard down, as watchmen on the wall to give warnings and exhortations to the body politic of True Israel, because our completion course to graduate from children of God to the sons of God has been interrupted perfectly by an adversary who collectively puts their minds together to promulgate lawlessness.
The perfect sermon is the one that helps us overcome sin and death and ignorance, that we may have life. “The thief comes not, but to steal, kill, and destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” John 10:10. Shame on these race traitors who have infected our whole society, the social order of a God-separated people with the malaise of spiritual lethargy, a philosophy of half measures sufficing and indeed the ethics of imperfection.
There’s a satirical science fiction movie called ‘Idiocracy’ which takes place 500 years from now. As the title suggests, it is government by idiots. The film depicts a dystopian society (the opposite of utopian) full of extremely stupid people. Advertising, commercialism, and cultural anti-intellectualism have run rampant and dysgenic (the study of factors producing the accumulation and perpetuation of defective or disadvantageous genes and traits in offspring of a particular population or species i.e. race) pressure has resulted in a uniformly unthinking society devoid of intellectual curiosity, social responsibility, and coherent notions of justice and anything hinting at God given rights. It appears to me that this gem of cinematography is more of a documentary than satire. Is it life imitating art or art imitating life?
It’s been said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. ‘Sane’ is one of the words that defined ‘perfect’ earlier in this message. Sanity means not disordered. The social order of the White race was designed by God perfectly and that order (which is also a biological term in taxonomy) is categorically separate from all other races. We’re a covenant people, we’re the Covenant People and we’re given the order “Thou shalt make no covenant with them [racial aliens] nor with their gods… it will surely be a snare unto thee” Exodus 23:32-33. A snare can make you crazy; that’s why the religions of man are called trappings. That’s where we are today. “Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped” Ps. 124:7. But, the escape plan must be perfect. We’ll talk more about that next time.
