Charactor

2017-05-05

  • Character is what defines you.
  • It’s what people see in you.
  • It’s what people will say about you after you pass away.
  • Character is one of the most important things you have.
  • How are you investing in yours?
  • Do people see your faith in what you do?
  • Is your character reflected in how you serve the Kingdom?
  • Remember there will be a time , Yahshua will either say, “welcome brother/sister; job well done” or “I never knew you; be gone!” You have right now to decide where your future is.
  • Character is something that you hold fast to inside, and that people see in you on the outside.
  • More importantly, it is something that Yah sees in you always.

Rom. 5:3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
5:4
And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
5:5
And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of Elohim is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit which is given unto us.

  • Yah’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
  • In suffering true character is formed which pushes us to hope because we have Yah’s love poured into our hearts.

Gal. 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
5:23
Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

  • True character is shown in how you act in any situation.
  • Actions do speak louder than words in many circumstances and you and I have to be on guard against the devil so that when adversity comes our way we can still exhibit the fruits of the spirit in word and deed.
  • How can we shine for Yahshua if we are showing the world darkness through our actions?

Col. 3:12-15 Put on therefore, as the elect of Elohim, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
3:13
Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Messiah forgave you, so also do ye.
3:14
And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
3:15
And let the peace of Elohim rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

  • Again, character is shown in how you deal with things.
  • These verses are great to show us all how to treat each other.

1 John. 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not Elohim; for Yahweh is love.

  • Your own character can be your judge.
  • How do you treat those around you?
  • Do you love them or retaliate against them?

Prov. 28:6 Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.

  • What about eternity.
  • The poor man who walks with Yahshua is going to rejoice in his passing.
  • The rich man who is “living the life” and boasting in his sins will die in his sins and face Yah’s wrath.

Rom. 13:14 But put ye on the Master Yahshua Messiah, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

  • This verse proclaims character loudly!
  • When you sin, you are actually making provision for your flesh.
  • You are providing the means necessary to carry out the sins you want to commit.

Matt. 12:35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

  • Are you making an effort daily to be a blessing to those around you or a stumbling block?

Matt. 23:25-26 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
23:26
Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.

  • You can fool men many times with your “character” but you can’t fool Yah. He’s sees your heart. He knows your intentions.
  • Character is something that you hold fast to inside, and that people see in you on the outside.
  • Are you a radical Christian on fire for Yah, or just blending into the crowd trying to look like everyone else?
