Perfection – In The Bride’s Diary

Perfection – In The Bride’s Diary

The scriptures are true: I can live without sin. Only Jesus promises Perfection. He has shown me the way: His way. The God that I love is true. Be perfect. Be clean. Live in newness of life: His life. Because of Jesus, I am alive. Perfection is true.

Dear Diary
Regarding Perfection

I heard Norton preach last night. He was so inspiring and full of life. He taught that perfection in Christ ultimately means that one does not have to die. Sin brought death. Adam, in the image of God, moved from the image of God to mortality, which is death. Jesus died to give us life. Through obedience to Christ and by the purging of the Holy Ghost, a reverse action takes place to bring us back to all life – we get rid of sin, or death. By Christ, this mortal shall put on immortality, or all life. Immortality by Christ means the glorified body. According to what Norton quoted out of the scriptures, that body is flesh and bone (thus, immortal or like Jesus glorified), not flesh and blood (as we are now). I believe this.

I know that Jesus is coming for a Bride without spot or wrinkle. It must mean – just like him – perfect.

Jesus died so we don’t have to. It’s the greatest hope. Norton preached that the last enemy to be destroyed is death. He said you do not destroy death by dying. If you die, you have been overcome by death. To overcome death, you do not die; you live. It is that simple.

There are phrases similar to perfect throughout the Bible. Some of them are: blameless, without fault, without blemish, no sin, without spot, complete in him, equal with God, pure, be ye holy, bride, firstfruits, firstborn, members of his body, undefiled, manchild, alpha and omega. We must be blameless and without spot, without fault before his throne. We are to be holy and without blemish. In him is no sin; we are to be complete in him, purifying our selves, to become pure as he is pure.

We are the firstfruits unto God. Last night I heard, “Let this mind be in you as was in Christ Jesus who thought it not robbery to be equal with God.” We are to have that same perfect mind, that we can be equal with God, because God wants to share all of himself with us. That means you cannot sin, because God doesn’t. You will not die, because God can’t. You have to be blameless, sinless, spotless, without fault, because these are the attributes of Christ. You inherit all things in him, Jesus.

In Rose’s Bible, she writes,

Perfection means no death.

That means that we come to a place in the Spirit where Jesus walked. In her notes, when Jesus says, “I am glorified in them,” Rose writes,

as we testify who we are in him.

I have to know who I am in him and believe it. When Jesus says, “Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one as we are,” she writes,

disciples and us.

I am to be one with my Father. I am to be in that exact same place as Jesus was – perfection. When Jesus says, “I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil,” Rose writes,

overcome sin.

Norton said that Jesus is speaking of being holy, here on this earth. This means what it says: Do not sin. If sin is overcome, that reverse action of the Holy Ghost takes place to bring us back into that immortal body that Jesus attained. In Jesus’ last prayer before he is taken prisoner in Gethsemane, he says “I in them and thou in me that they may be made perfect in one.” Rose writes,

whosoever liveth and believeth in Jesus
shall never die.

She emphasizes liveth and believeth. She writes in Revelation:

The saints will be overcome,
but those that have attained life
 will not be
overcome, but live. They shall never die.

I am convinced of perfection. It is my bridal vow to Christ. I will be his bride.

Dear Diary
Regarding My Love

I’ve been watching the ocean at night these three evenings. With the full moon and the calmness of the glassy waters, I could almost hear my Love. All his words sing to me. And I believe I shall be perfect. The glass-lit floor of the ocean reminds me of the day when I shall be married.

The scriptures have so much more meaning to me now. They are full of life. His words touch me now. I can almost feel my Love. O Love, I understand you now. I wait for the day. I will be perfect.

I am your Bride. Perfection is his Life.
