What is the Perfect in 1 Corinthians 13:10?

What is the Perfect in 1 Corinthians 13:10?

1 Corinthians 13:
4 Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, 5 does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things…
8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. 13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.
In Hebrews 11:1 “ Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”
Romans 8:24-25 “For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it.”

Hope and Faith leave when seen, but Love is Eternal!
 
Some teach the perfect in 1 Cor. 13:10 is the “Canon of the scriptures”.
But is that correct?
Look at the Greek meaning for the word perfect, it is an adjective.
Perfect in 1 Cor. 13:10 is the Greek word teleios
1) brought to its end, finished

2) wanting nothing necessary to completeness

3) perfect

4) that which is perfect

a) consummate human integrity and virtue

b) of men

1) full grown, adult, of full age, mature
 

Not to sound dogmatic but I believe the perfect in this verse refers to the children of God coming face to face with the Lord and being transformed into our glorified bodies, where hope and faith are no longer needed because we will see fully and LOVE is perfected in total UNITY.
When will this happen? Lets look at verses:

1 Cor. 13:12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known.
1 John 3:2 Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is.”

Made Complete

THE PERFECT summed up~

When we see Jesus face to face we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. He will give us a perfect glorified body that will never perish! There will be perfect Unity, perfect Love, our Bridegroom (Jesus) and the Elect chosen ones (the Bride) living in the New Heaven and New Earth. The Eternal Kingdom of God will be the glorious Eternal Sabbath Rest from all sin and all unrighteousness.  

1 Corinthians 2:9
But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

 
Take note* since LOVE endures forever, it is superior to all other gifts. Though as a Child of God I would never put limits on the power of the Holy Spirit working in supernatural ways.
 
1 Corinthians 13
1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.
 

Walking in the Spirit is the reflection of our Lord. Jesus is the Light of the WorldThe fruit of the Spirit should be as a light in each of us.

Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness,

Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-control

The Lord Can And Does Use Dreams to Help Us!

 HAVE YOU EVER HAD A SPECIAL DREAM THAT STOOD OUT AND YOU KNEW THE LORD WAS SPEAKING TO YOU?

The first time this happened to me was when I was 10 years old.

Acts 2:17 ’AND IT SHALL BE IN THE LAST DAYS,’ God says, ’THAT I WILL POUR FORTH OF MY SPIRIT ON ALL MANKIND; AND YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS SHALL PROPHESY, AND YOUR YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE VISIONS, AND YOUR OLD MEN SHALL DREAM DREAMS.
I have one dream I remember as a child and it was very special to me. When I was 10 years old my grandma died of a heart attack June 4, 1966 and I loved her so much. If you notice the postcard it is dated April 15, 1966. It was less than 2 months later she had a heart attack and died. My grandmother had gone to Mississippi to visit some of her family. Before she left on her trip I had traced her hand on a piece of paper and I have saved it along with her wedding ring all these years. After her death I was so very sad but one night I had a beautiful dream and I remember that dream like it was yesterday. In my dream I received a gift. It was a long box wrapped with a big bow. The anticipation of what was in the box was great. As I opened the box I was so excited when I realized it was my grandmother alive and well. I was so happy to see her again and I remember exactly what I said to her. I asked her, “Grandma, what is it like in heaven?” And this is what she said “Francine, I can’t tell you, you are going to have to find out for yourself.” What a wonderful dream and I was only 10 years old. That dream was a gift from God and HIM calling me to him. What was the chance that I would ask such a question and that dream would never be forgotten? Could it well be that the Lord knew I would use it one day to glorify HIM. My neighbor started inviting me to go to church with their family. A little over a year later I accepted to Lord and was baptized.  The Lord is so amazing and I am thankful for those special dreams!



God Bless Each of  You!

Beware of False Prophets

How Pennies Helped Reveal the Truth about A False Prophet!

Acts 2:17

‘AND IT SHALL BE IN THE LAST DAYS,’ God says, ‘THAT I WILL POUR FORTH OF MY SPIRIT ON ALL MANKIND; AND YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS SHALL PROPHESY, AND YOUR YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE VISIONS, AND YOUR OLD MEN SHALL DREAM DREAMS;

In March of 2006 pennies starting coming up out of the ground in my backyard, two months before Sammy (my daughter’s boyfriend) took his life, I found a total of 43 pennies and that is how I learned about the false prophet my daughter and Sammy were sending money to. The final day when I found 5 pennies was the night my daughter saw a vision of Sammy (a deceptive spirit) standing at the sliding glass door that lead to the back yard.  She was wide awake when  she saw the vision and it scared her, I even laid my hand on her chest and could feel her heart pounding. She quickly grabbed her bible and opened it. That is when she said mom “LOOK What it Says!


Deuteronomy 18:9-22
Detestable Practices

9 “When you enter the land which the LORD your God gives you, you shall not learn to imitate the detestable things of those nations. 10 “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 “For whoever does these things is detestable to the LORD; and because of these detestable things the LORD your God will drive them out before you. 13 “You shall be blameless before the LORD your God. 14 “For those nations, which you shall dispossess, listen to those who practice witchcraft and to diviners, but as for you, the LORD your God has not allowed you to do so.
15 “The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your countrymen, you shall listen to him. 16 “This is according to all that you asked of the LORD your God in Horeb on the day of the assembly, saying, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, let me not see this great fire anymore, or I will die.’ 17 “The LORD said to me, ‘They have spoken well. 18 ‘I will raise up a prophet from among their countrymen like you, and I will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him. 19 ‘It shall come about that whoever will not listen to My words which he shall speak in My name, I Myself will require it of him. 20 ‘But the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously in My name which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.’ 21 “You may say in your heart, ‘How will we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?’ 22 “When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him
.

After reading it my daughter told me how her and Sammy had been getting letters from a prophet. I learned his name was Prophet Peter Popoff who I had never heard of at the time. I wanted to know more. I learned her and Sammy were sending him money. She told me she had some of his letters out in her car. I started checking this guy out on the Internet and the Lord was quickly letting me know this guy was No prophet of God as he claimed. Many people are being deceived. In his letters he would tell them to do certain things in order to bring forth miracles. Now you may be wondering where the pennies come into play.  The very first letter I saw had 5 pennies drawn at the top of the page with a penny he sent that he claimed was anointed with Holy Prayer. He gives instructions on what to do with each coin. He told them to say certain words out loud. Another letter described how to  receive the 3 trinity gifts saying for the Father to pay $107.00, for the son pay  $77.00 and  for the Holy Spirit pay $67.00. I found this outrageous that he takes advantage of those hurting for his financial gain.
Now my daughter and Sammy fell victim into believing he was a man of God and followed the directions given to them with the pennies.  I pray by sharing this story others won’t fall victim to his scams and the scams of other deceivers. I will show examples of his letters and this is not all of them.
The pages are not in order but you will get an idea what they consisted of and how some people fall for this. The actually letters come with all the blue writing to make them look  personal.
I can only say Peter Popoff is a false prophet who Profits off others. We all need to pray for him!
I do not know how the pennies got in the ground and no one in my family knows. But the timing of them coming up is what is significant.
It was the Lord perfect timing!
