These words may not say “perfect”, but their scriptural context have the same meaning.  In very simple terms they all refer to one being complete or mature.  We are described in James 5:7 as the precious fruit of the earth.  (Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of Yahshua. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receives the early and latter rain).  Pentecost is called the Feast of First fruits.  When we walk in newness of life in obedience to the scriptures, we become mature fruit ready for harvest, i.e., ready for eternal life as part of the ruling family in the Kingdom of YHWH. 

Luke brings out the same principle as James did.  Luke 8:14-15 – And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring forth no fruit to perfection. 

15 But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

What is the purpose or goal of this completeness or perfection?

Ephesians 4:12-13 – For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Messiah: 

13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of Elohim, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Messiah:

We are to become like Yahshua – to have His mind, His character, the fruit of His Spirit.  He wants to marry someone just like Him to form the perfect bond of oneness just like He has with His Father.

John 17:22 – And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

We are not only to be perfect like Yahshua, we are to be perfect like our heavenly Father.

Mathew 5:48 – Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

The word Be in the Greek means “will be” or come to pass.

Hebrew 6:1 says we are to go on to perfection.  It is a journey or a process also known as the conversion process where we go from being carnally minded to becoming spiritually minded with Yahshua’s mind and maturity, by exercising the use of scripture in our life experiences.  We may think the things we have covered these last three months are meat, however, until we learn to go from observing these things in the letter to discerning and observing these things in the Spirit, it is still just milk.
