We know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and do his will, him he heareth. John 9:31 ASV

When I say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his righteousness, and commit iniquity, none of his righteous deeds shall be remembered; but in his iniquity that he hath committed, therein shall he die. Ezekiel 33:13 ASV

To be saved, before and after the coming of Jesus, we must become perfect and holy and must die holy because God is perfect and holy. Luke 1:75, Leviticus 20:26, Ezekiel 33:13, et al.

Overcoming all, for divine perfection (being without even one iniquity or one sin), according to Ezekiel 33:13, is the ultimate goal for the salvation of Jesus because the forgiveness of sins is free when we stop sinning (Numbers 15:40, 1 Peter 1:16, James 4:7-11). We must be former sinners to take advantage of the grace offer and not active sinners.

The theology of perfection for salvation is not that Jesus will cover our imperfections with His perfection while we keep on being imperfect, so that we can get to the Kingdom of God though imperfect, but covered by the blood of YHWH.

Jesus told Abraham to be perfect, not to slack somehow and YHWH (Jesus) will adjust whatever he is missing for perfection.

God always requires perfection.

Ye therefore shall be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. Matthew 5:48 ASV

Thou shalt be perfect with Jehovah thy God.  Deuteronomy 18:13 ASV

And Abram was ninety-nine years old, when Jehovah appeared to Abram, and said to him, I am the Almighty *God: walk before my face, and be perfect. Genesis 17:1 Darby

For whoever shall keep all the Law, but stumbles in one, he has become guilty of all. James 2:10 LITV

That ye may remember and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God. Numbers 15:40 ASV

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself unto him. John 14:21 ASV 

Ephesians 2:8-10 ASV
(8)  for by grace have ye been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;
(9)  not of works, that no man should glory.
(10)  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God afore prepared that we should walk in them.




for God is not a God of confusion, but of peace. As in all the churches of the saints, 1 Corinthians 14:33 ASV

If you believe in Jesus and still see yourself as a sinner, you do not believe in the real Jesus who, in Ezekiel 33:13 and elsewhere, calls on all men to be holy.


You shall be of me [JESUS] witnesses. Acts 1:8

Acts 1:8 ASV
(8)  But ye shall receive power, when the Holy Spirit is come upon you: and ye shall be my witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea and Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
