David used the words perfect, righteous, and upright all in the same sense in Psalm 64, which tells me that they are all synonyms. A perfect woman, is a righteous woman, a righteous, is an upright woman.
So, if the Devil is using anyone to tell you that God doesn’t want you to be perfect. They are telling you God doesn’t want you to be righteous and they also telling you that God does not want you to be upright. Therefore, just know that this is a set up to cast you into hell, and then the Lake of Fire after the Judgment.
Jesus’ return is nearer than before and the Devil has ramped up activities of deception against the children of God to get us cast into hell. It makes perfect sense for him to use some well-known, influential ministers. Children of God can be used by the Devil, too.
Peter allowed Satan to use him to tell Jesus not to go to the cross, and he did it for selfish reasons. This led Jesus to tell Peter that he savored the things of men more than the things of God (Matt 16:23).
People who savor the things of God will not tell you something contrary to the word of God. God wants you perfect. He wants you righteous. He wants you upright. He wants you walking in the fear of the Lord. These all mean the same thing.
If God did not want you perfect He would not have given you the blood of His son to keep cleansing you from all unrighteousness when you confess your sins. He would have allowed you to remain in that condition and still enter heaven; but you cannot enter heaven unclean. You need to be clean and perfect.
Grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God
By Evangelist K. Michael
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour and you will like to inherit everlasting life. I would like to invite you to pray this simple prayer right now.
Lord Jesus, I repent of my sins. Please forgive me of my sins. Come into my life and save me. I confess you as my Lord and Savior and believe in my heart that God has raised you from the dead, Amen.
Now, I would also like to advise you to pray and ask God to lead you to a church that teaches truth and get baptized and receive the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. May the Lord richly bless you and keep you. Amen
