Greetings, as the title says, what is 'Perfect' or what is 'Perfection'? If I asked you to describe it to me, how would you do so? When Abram was a tender 90 years old, the LORD said unto him, "I am the Almighty God; walk before Me, and be thou perfect." from Genesis 17:1 KJV Did Abram have trouble working out what the LORD was talking about? Perhaps Abram would be perfect if he walked before the LORD? or was being perfect another thing all together? There is no record of Abram reading this in any written language, so how did he interpret the meaning of the LORD's words? Was it an order, as in a commandment which also can be translated or understood as being a law or if we go forward a few hundred years, Torah. Back then the language took on a quite different form when written at all. Much like the Egyptian hieroglyphics, the Hebrew language was written in pictographs. Perfect was written with four pictures, a cross, waves like water, an arm and hand and more water. Given that the people back then thought and spoke and lived differently to the western mindset of communicating, the whole concept of perfect and perfection would be able to be easily understood because it would be in a tangible expression of life rather than a mere abstract word that left the hearer and reader to decide for themselves depending on their own imagination. , 'Perfect' - a cross, water, an arm and hand, water. Sounds perfect to me. How about you? What does it mean to be perfect? And can you please explain it to me in terms that aren't abstract? Bless you ....><> I like using Jesus Speaks to look up Scripture... try it today!
