Qualification


HEBREW UNDERSTANDING:


to enable, qualify, make able (to meet).


A PERSON’S BEHAVIOURAL

REQUIREMENT AND ACHIEVEMENT

FOR DOING A CERTAIN TASK



SCRIPTURE UNDERSTANDING:


TITUS 1:

“To Titus, my son through shared belief: Favor, compassion, peace from Yahuah the Father and the Master Yahusha Messiah our Deliverer. The reason I left you in Crete was so you could sort out all the chaos and unfinished business and assign Leaders over the assemblies in every city based on my earlier instructions.

Here’s what you’re looking for:


Anyone unreprovable (blameless with good reputation), the husband of one wife and who has believing children who are not accused of wild, rebellious behaviour that’s out of control.


Since he is managing Yahuah’s Affairs, a Leader must be blameless and above all suspicion, not self-pleasing, short-tempered, a heavy-drinker, or substance abuser, brawler or greedy for filthy gain and worldly fame, but someone who’s kind to strangers, a lover of what’s good, sensible, righteous, set-apart, self-controlled, someone clinging to the trustworthy Word he was taught, in order to not only encourage others (by sound teaching) but to correct those who oppose it.

For there are many disobedient men, senseless talkers and deceivers, (especially from that circumcised lot - IE JEWS), whose wicked mouths must be shut up, for they upset entire households, teaching what they shouldn’t, for the sake of their own filthy gain. Even one of their own prophets was heard saying, “These Cretans (people of Crete) are always liars, evil beasts and lazy gluttons,” which is true, so if you see this behaviour, rebuke it sharply, in order for people to come into the truth, but definitely don’t pay any attention to Jewish myths and fables (TULMUD/TRADITIONS/FEASTS), and the commands of men who turn from the truth.

Listen, to those who are clean, all things are clean, but to those who are unclean, (stained and unbelieving) nothing is pure because their minds and their consciences are polluted. They claim, “I know Yahuah,” but their actions and behaviour are a slap in His face. They are wretched, disobedient, and useless for any good work”.


TITUS 2:

“But you Titus, only speak in good, healthy words, fit for sound teaching so people will know the correct behaviour to live by. Tell the older men they should be sober, serious, sensible, sound in belief, in love and in endurance.


Likewise tell the older women to be set-apart in behaviour, not drinking too much so they become slanderers and idle gossips, but be positive examples of goodness for the younger women, teaching them to love their husbands and children, to control themselves and be sensible and blameless, virtuous and pure, managing their household, kind and good, subject to their own husbands, so that the Word of Yahuah is not considered evil or a joke because of their behaviour. Likewise urge the young men to be sensible and controlled in all situations.


Titus, you have to set a good example for everyone, going out of your way to do what’s right, speaking the truth with the weight and authority that comes from an honest and pure life. No one can argue with that, and your enemies will cower in shame because they have nothing bad to say against you (or us).


Servants (EMPLOYEES/CHILDREN) should work hard and be subject to their masters (EMPLOYERS/PARENTS), to be well-pleasing in every way, not back-chatting, rude and sarcastic, stealing and embezzling, but showing they can be trusted in all things so that all the credit and esteem goes to Yahuah and His teachings, in every way.


We have reason to celebrate, for Yahuah’s Deliverance has appeared to all men, instructing us to flee from wickedness and the lusts and desires of this world, and to live sensibly with awareness and self-control in this present age, looking for the expected return and esteemed appearance of our great Master and Deliverer Yahusha Messiah, Who gave Himself for us, to redeem us from all lawlessness and to cleanse (for Himself) a people, His own possession, passionate about good behaviour. So Titus, tell them all these things, urge, convince and correct with all authority. You are a man called to serve, so don’t let anyone belittle you”.

WHAT'S THE USE OF PERFECTING OUR BEHAVIOUR IF NOT TO LEAD OTHERS ?


Yahusha’s plan and scope is far greater than we can possibly imagine. There’s no ‘great commission’ or ‘grand campaign’ for the Bride to undertake, just as she’s not required to gather herself to the middle-east for some blinded shadow-prophesy involving an expired promised land.


OUR BODY IS THE TEMPLE (THE PROMISED LAND) AND THE BEHAVIOUR MANIFESTED FROM IT (LIGHT) WILL AFFECT THE NATIONS, ONE PERSON AT A TIME.


THE GOOD FRUIT WE ARE TO BEAR (THE LIST OF QUALIFICATIONS GIVEN TO TITUS) ARE BEHAVIOURS THAT DON'T EXPIRE WITH TIME, AND ARE NOT JUST FOR LEADERS, BUT (AS SPECIFICALLY MENTIONED BY AGE) ARE FOR EVERYONE, YOUNG OR OLD !
