and become perfect, it must be a choice of one’s own free will. One of the greatest gifts our Father has given us is free moral agency.
See Deuteronomy 30:18-20.
Deuteronomy 30:18 I have declared to you today, that you shall certainly perish, you shall not prolong your days in the land which you are passing over the Jordan to enter and to possess.
Deuteronomy 30:19 I have called the heavens and earth as witnesses today against you; I have set before you life and death, blessing and the curse. Therefore, you shall choose life, so that you live, both you and your seed.
Deuteronomy 30:20 to love the Master thy Elohim, to obey his voice, and to cling to Him – for He is your life, and the length of your days – to dwell in the land which the Master swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
This was a public proclamation, a historical record that still is in effect today.
John 14:15 If you love me, you shall keep my commands.
If we love Him? Real love is voluntary. Elohim could have created us like robots and the globalists want us to be chipped causing trans humanism, forcing us into obedience. That is the mind of Satan not the mind of the Messiah. Our heavenly Father wants the real deal. He wants us to love Him of our own free will. This is perfect love and can only be developed through the conversion process. This is the only way that Elohim can be assured we will not become another Satan or another rebellious fallen one. Character is a pattern of behavior developed throughout our trials and the testing of our character. It is not instant or automatic.
Notice what I Peter 1:3-7 has to say.
I Peter 1:3-7 Blessed be the Elohim and Father of our Master Messiah, who according to His great compassion has caused us to be born again to a living expectation through the resurrection of Messiah from the dead,
I Peter 1:4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled, and unfading, having been kept in the heavens for you,
I Peter 1:5 Who are protected by the power of Elohim through belief for a deliverance ready to be revealed in the last time.
I Peter 1:6 Wherein you exalt, even though for a little while if need be, you have been grieved through manifold trials,
I Peter 1:7 in order that the proving of your belief – much more precious than gold that perishes and proven by fire, might be found unto praise and respect and esteem at the revelation of Messiah.
It takes a lifetime of going through the conversion process to become perfect in the Messiah.
