I Peter 5:10 – But the Elohim of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Messiah Yahshua, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
When we are perfected, we will not only be one with Yahshua and the Father, but we will share their glory.
John 17:22 – And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
Romans 8:17 – And if children, then heirs; heirs of Elohim, and joint-heirs with Messiah; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
Romans 8:17 also confirms the same process we must be willing to suffer as Yahshua did so we can become perfect as He is perfect.
Hebrews 2:10 – For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
Yahshua suffered as our example. We must also be willing to share that suffering. As we grow and mature towards perfection, others become jealous and envious as they foolishly compare themselves among themselves.
II Corinthians 10:12 – For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
Yahshua was the paragon of perfection and was despised more than any man ever has been.
Isaiah 53:3-6 – He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely, he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of Elohim, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and Yah hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
Isaiah 59:15 – Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and Yahweh saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.
Psalm 64:2-5 – Hear my voice, O Elohim, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:
3 Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:
4 That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, who shall see them?
Those who go on to perfection and come out of this world’s idolatry, false religions and Babylonian forms of governments, bring persecutions on themselves. Satan hates the perfection Yah is developing in mankind. He will try to thwart Yah’s plan every chance he gets.
Job 1:8-12 – And Yahweh said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth Elohim, and escheweth evil?
