I CORINTHIANS 13:10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
I CORINTHIANS 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. I CORINTHIANS 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
EPHESIANS 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; EPHESIANS 4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
EPHESIANS 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; EPHESIANS 4:15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
PSALM 138:8 The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.
“"Where there is tongues, they shall cease; where there is prophecy, it shall fail; where there is knowledge, it shall vanish. We know in part; we see in part; we prophesy in part. But when we see face to face, then we'll know as we are known. And that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part shall be done away with": perfect, redeeming, unadulterated love of the Holy Ghost into a human soul that's passed from death unto Life.” [56-0617 Revelation Book Of Symbols, Jeffersonville IN], [I Corinthians 13:8-10]
“Brother, it won't matter if you can still have dresses so long. You could still not wear short sleeves shirts, you men, and those things, or whatever you want to; but if you still got malice, and envy, and strife, you might've run, danced, spoke in tongues, shouted, preached the Gospel, or anything. But you're lost until that Blood has cleansed you and set in a Divine love of the Lord Jesus Christ in your heart, in your life speaks of Christ behind you.
Amen. "Where there is tongues, they shall cease; where there's prophecy, it shall fail. Where there is knowledge, it shall be vanished; but when that which is perfect is come, that which is in part is done away."” [56-0610 Perfection, Jeffersonville IN], [I Corinthians 13:8-10]
“Paul said, "I could speak with tongue like men and Angels," that's both the tongues that is understood and the tongues that cannot be understood, has to be interpreted, "I am nothing. Though I have the gift of knowledge and understand all the wisdom of God," can explain the Bible, from... tie her together, "I am nothing." Don't do much good to go to school then, does it, to learn the Bible? "Though I have faith that I can move mountains..." Healing campaigns don't mean very much then, does it? "I'm nothing, though I give my body to be burnt as a sacrifice."
"Oh," they say, "that man is religious." "But he's nothing," Paul said, "never become nothing." "For where there is tongues, they shall cease; where is prophecies, it shall fail; where there is all these other things, will fail. But when that which is perfect is come, that which is in part will be done away with." See, that "perfect." What is perfect? Love. What is love?
God. "Let us lay aside all these little dead works and ordinance, and go on to perfection
." You see it? We're perfected through Christ.
How do we get into It? By Holy Spirit baptism. "All right, what happens?" You've passed from death unto Life. "Well, do I shake, jump, do it?" You, you won't have to do nothing. You've already done it, God brought you from death unto Life, and you're alive. Then your fruits of your life show it.” [57-0908M Hebrews Chapter Five And Six 1, Jeffersonville IN], [I Corinthians 13:8-10]

“And now, that's the way that Christianity is. When a man is, or a woman, or a child is borned of the Spirit of God, then everything you have need of in this world and the world to come, is given to you, when you receive the Holy Spirit. And you're planted in Christ. And to my estimation of Christ, He is the inexhaustible Fountain of Life. And you just are planted in Him, and drink, and drink, and push out, and drink, and push out, and drink, and push out. For everything you have need of, is in Him. The only thing you have to do, is get thirsty and go to drinking. And it'll produce just exactly what the seed is. If it's a promise, God promised to do it. God's obligated to it, and He will do it.” [57-0106 Jehovah Jireh, Cleveland TN],
“Then Jesus said, "Be ye therefore perfect
." Then it was perfect
ed forever. God through the death of Christ nineteen hundred years ago today, perfect
ed the believer that He foresaw before the foundation of the world forever. And those who He has called, He has justified. Those who He foreknew, He has called; those who He has called, He has justified; those who He has justified
, He has already glorified. He has perfected His believers
.” [57-0419 The Perfection Jeffersonville IN], [Matthew 5:48]
, [Hebrews 10:12-14]
“And every man that's ever borned of the Spirit of God, takes on a nature that he can't digest the world no more. "For if you love the world, or the things of the world, the love of God's not even in you
." And, brother, if you still love the world and professing to be God's child, for the sake of your own soul, find a place at the altar and pray through until God takes the world out of you. For He has perfected forever those that are sanctified or cleaned by the Holy Spirit, then we are in perfection.
The law having a shadow of things, not even the real things to come, with them sacrifice
s can never make the believer perfect
. But a believer once coming into Christ, and by one Spirit baptized into that Body, He has perfected forever those that are in Christ Jesus
. Then the things of the world... See? And He--He that... The worshipper once purged has no more conscience (or the right interpretation of that), has no more desire of sin. For the worshipper once purged has no more desire or conscience of sin
. He doesn't even want to sin to... He will do things wrong. And as soon as he does it, he will confess his sins right there and say, "God, forgive me; I didn't mean to do that. You know it, Father." God never sees it, but He has an advocate. He has a confession and he makes it.
.” [54-1203 The Law Having A Shadow, Binghamton NY], [1_John2:15], [Hebrews10:1]
“Oh, God requires perfect
ion. He requires your repentance. He requires your loyalty to Him. But He's looking tonight. No matter how much you've sinned, how little or how much, you are still a sinner, and cannot get in no other way but by Jesus Christ, God's all-sufficient Sacrifice
. And in Him you are perfect
ed forever. Think of it. It's not nothing you do. It's not new pages you turn. It's not a new life you start. It's a confession of your wrong, and God's grace to you. That brings you to perfection, and then you are perfected in Jesus Christ.” [57-0419 The Perfection, Jeffersonville IN], [Matthew 5:48]
, [Hebrews 10:12-14]
“I Corinthians 13 says this: "When that which is perfect is come, that which is in part shall be done away with." So all these little things of jumping up-and-down like a kid, trying to talk in tongues, and all these other things, when that which is perfect
... And we do have today, by God's help, the perfect interpretation of the Word with Divine vindication
. Then that which is in part is done away with. "When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child
; but when I become a man, I put away childish things." Amen.” [64-0823E Questions And Answers 2, Jeffersonville IN], [I Corinthians 13:10-11]
