Reject and Be Harsh to the Divisive?
Brothers and Sisters !!
SHOULD WE REJECT AND BE HARSH TO THE DIVISIVE ?
WHAT DOES TURAH SAY ..............
Titus 3:10-11. Reject a divisive man after the first and second warning, knowing that such a one has been perverted and sins, being self condemned.
Correct behaviour in these times is a mandate for all believers and knowing how to behave in many circumstances is a great advantage. THE WORDS REJECT AND HARSH HAVE MANY SIMILAR CONNOTATIONS - LETS LOOK AT REJECT IN THE HEBREW:
Result of search for "reject": 1602 ga`al gaw-al' a primitive root; to detest; by implication, to reject:--abhor, fail, lothe, vilely cast away.
2186 zanach zaw-nakh' a primitive root meaning to push aside, i.e. reject, forsake, fail:--cast away (off), remove far away (off). 3988 ma'ac maw-as' a primitive root; to spurn; also (intransitively) to disappear:--abhor, cast away (off), contemn, despise, disdain, (become) loathe(some), melt away, refuse, reject, reprobate, X utterly, vile person. 5010 na'ar naw-ar' a primitive root; to reject:--abhor, make void. 5203 natash naw-tash' a primitive root; properly, to pound, i.e. smite; by implication (as if beating out, and thus expanding) to disperse; also, to thrust off, down, out or upon (inclusively, reject, let alone, permit, remit, etc.):--cast off, drawn, let fall, forsake, join (battle), leave (off), lie still, loose, spread (self) abroad, stretch out, suffer. 5234 nakar naw-kar' a primitive root; properly, to scrutinize, i.e. look intently at; hence (with recognition implied), to acknowledge, be acquainted with, care for, respect, revere, or (with suspicion implied), to disregard, ignore, be strange toward, reject, resign, dissimulate (as if ignorant or disowning):--acknowledge, X could, deliver, discern, dissemble, estrange, feign self to be another, know, take knowledge (notice), perceive, regard, (have) respect, behave (make) self strange.
Of course administering such behaviour to a Brother or Sister within the public forum can be viewed as divisive in itself. Especially if that person is prominent and has many followers that declare your own behaviour as incorrect.
Do you then NOT follow Scripture and be defeated by the enemy, when you know the truth? We are not here to please man, but Yahusha. At the moment there is no Assembly professing correct behaviour. Behaviour Revolution is a Facebook site dedicated to Turah behaviour, with many articles concerning righteous issues of behaviour. Maybe this is the beginning of unity for the body as a prototype.
Rejecting and being harsh to a Brother or Sister with the hope of their repentance is a behaviour that we should not fear to act out, because it is a harder thing to be abused whilst waiting for their repentance, than to be an abuser. Putting forth this sort of behaviour will see Yahusha move in ways you never expected and you will also gain favour with Him. If we all made up our minds and behaved how Yahusha wants us to, then things will really start to move in the body.
