The "Perfecter of our faith." Jesus is called "the Chief Agent [Chief Leader] and Perfecter of our faith." (Heb 12:2) True, long before the coming of Jesus Christ, Abraham's faith was "perfected" by his works of faith and obedience, so that he gained God's approval and became party with God in an oath-bound covenant. (Jas 2:21-23; Ge 22:15-18) But the faith of all those men of faith living prior to Jesus' earthly ministry was incomplete, or imperfect, in the sense of their not understanding the then unfulfilled prophecies regarding him as God's Seed and Messiah. (1Pe 1:10-12) By his birth, ministry, death, and resurrection to heavenly life, these prophecies came to fulfillment, and the faith about Christ had a strengthened foundation, one filled out with historical facts. Thus, faith in this perfected sense "arrived" through Christ Jesus (Ga 3:24, 25), who thereby proved to be the "leader" (AT), "pioneer" (Mo), or Chief Agent of our faith. He continued to be the Perfecter of the faith of his followers from his heavenly position, by pouring down holy spirit on them at Pentecost and by imparting revelations that progressively filled out and developed their faith.—Ac 2:32, 33; Heb 2:4; Re 1:1, 2; 22:16; Ro 10:17. We live this time... Your body might not be perfect, your intelect might not be complete, but your spirit should be completely perfect and constantly faithfull. 1 thessalonissians 5:23 is happening!
