Christian perfection (also known as perfect love; heart purity; the baptism of the Holy Spirit; the fullness of the blessing; Christian holiness; the second blessing; the second work of grace; the baptism of fire; and entire sanctification) is a doctrine of Methodism and its emerging Holiness movement.

The Grace of God for the sinner simulates the Power of God for the holy!
The writing below was taken from
THE THREE PEOPLE OF OUR WORLD
Therefore the (1) ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
nor (2) sinners in the congregation of the (3) righteous.
1. The Ungodly ... never baptized thus not signatory to God's II Covenant.
Their name was not written in the BOOK, thus, they go directly into hell at death.
And with him they crucify two thieves: the one on his right hand,
and the other on his left.
Is. 53:9, 12
2. The sinner or the unholy ... baptized but never reached holiness, thus, they sleep until judgment. Most will be cast into hell. Those working on holiness will have eternal life but they will be servants only, and they will never see God.
I Thessalonians 4:13-15
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
3. The obedient, the holy, the righteous, the FEW THERE BE,
the heirs, the saints, they win it all!
1 Peter 4:18
And IF THE RIGHTEOUS SCARCELY BE SAVED,
WHERE SHALL THE UNGODLY AND THE SINNER APPEAR?
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
How wonderful are the Blessings of God as nothing can ever compare. Speaking for myself, I clearly recall the calling Jesus placed upon me 18 years ago. The call would not go away, as I did not want it to go away but I wanted to connect with God. Over the weeks I continued crying out, until one early morning I was on my den floor, 2:00 AM, my family sleeping away, when a LIGHT such as I had never seen before (canot describe) glowed before me. Sometime later I was walking toward our bedroom when I begin to recall I had just seen an old neighbor, long dead. Brother Miller was his name. My mother had ask Brother Miller to pray for me, and he most certainly did. Over the next several months I was walking around like I was in heaven already. WHAT A BLESSING!
After a few months a normal life came back but within my heart I had found and kept HOLY JESUS. I knew very little but as time passed I found it was not going to be so easy. As I lived in the Scriptures I began to have troubles like never before. To make it short I was under the law of God. Now most reject that, stating as they are not under the law but under grace. Sorry, but grace is in the law Brother Paul. EVERYTHING IN THE NEW TESTAMENT IS THE LAW OF GOD. Baptisim makes one signatory to God's II Covenant. The word of God is the law. Obey and live.
Disobey and die.
For many, many years I lived under the law, or better yet, I loved the Holy Word of God. My world began to fall apart as the scripture tells us. We must take up our cross and follow Jesus. Our cross is not visable, but I assure you, any and all of the obedient carries their cross via living in The Holy Word of God! You want to love Jesus? LOVE HIS WORD! The word of God is a living and speaking God here on earth, and sad to say only a few will ever live up to God's word.
YES! The first blessing is wonderful and it's mission is to destroy the flesh and little by little KILL THE OLD MAN. Life and life more abundant lies ahead for many, many years. The second blessing is reaching .....
TRUE SANTIFICAION/HOLINESS/RIGHTEOUSNESS and all powerful HOLY FAITH & SPIRIT.
Here and here alone you'll no longer be under the law or schoolmaster.
He that loveth his life shall lose it;
and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
