Yeshua (Jesus) had to become perfect. Isn’t God already perfect?
Some of you may be thinking, “What is so important about this question? What difference does it make?” To those having such thoughts, my response is that it is a very important question, the answer of which has enormous implications.
This is another one of the simple, common sense proofs which show that Messiah, or Christ, is most definitely NOT “God in the flesh”. If he were, he would be absolutely perfect from the moment he was born. The Creator God is perfect. He is all-powerful. He has no need to “grow” in any way, shape, or form. He is utterly and infinitely perfect.
Therefore, if it can be shown that Yeshua the Messiah became perfect or grew in wisdom, then he is obviously not God.
Such proof is easily provided. Please read the following few verses. There are more; however, if these do not prove to you that Yeshua is not God, then you must consider God to be imperfect and in need of growth.
- Luke 2:40, 52 NKJV
- 40 And the Child (Yeshua) grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace (favor) of God was upon Him. … 52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.
Uhm. Excuse me? Isn’t God already infinitely strong in spirit? Isn’t God already infinitely full of wisdom? Does God have to grow in favor with a separate God or Himself?
Obviously, since Yeshua had to become strong in spirt, become filled with wisdom, and grow in favor with God, he obviously is not the “God in the flesh” that the false God promoters of contemporary Christianity and counterfeit Messianism wish us to embrace.
Yeshua GREW in wisdom, strength, stature, etc., just like John the Baptist (see Luke 1:80). This shows that Yeshua was not born “perfect” but he became perfect like all other righteous men of Israel (Yet Yeshua was the most Anointed One).
- Hebrews 1:4 NKJV
- 4 having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
Uhm. Excuse me? But isn’t God already “better than the angels? Since Yeshua had to become better, it proves he is not God.
- Hebrews 5:8-9 NKJV
- 8 though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered. 9 And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him,
Uhm. Excuse me? But God does not have to “learn” anything. He also does not have to obey anything. The fact that Yeshua had to learn obedience proves he is not God.
- Hebrews 7:28 NKJV
- 28 For the law appoints as high priests men who have weakness, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints the Son who has been perfected forever.
Uhm. Excuse me? God is already perfect; therefore, the fact that Yeshua the Messiah had to become perfected proves he is not God.
It should be quite obvious that Yeshua was not born perfect, but he submitted his personal will to the will of His God, our God, the Only True God. This is the same “only true God” to whom Yeshua refers and by whom he was” sent” when he says:
- John 17:3 (NKJV)
- 3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Yeshua Messiah whom You have sent.
Let’s admit the obvious. Yeshua the Messiah became perfect. He was not born perfect; therefore, he is clearly NOT the “God in the flesh” that the idolatry promoters of contemporary Christianity and counterfeit Messianism proclaim him to be.
My friend, please use common sense. Yeshua was not perfect at his birth. Instead, he became perfect – he was perfected. Since God is perfect and need not be perfected, Yeshua is obviously not God. Simple!
