[Please note! All material in [ ] are inserts by the teacher for clarification. In our years of study we have recovered the proper names of our Heavenly Father and His son. Our Father’s name is Yahweh. In most translations the name of the Father has been replaced with LORD and GOD all in capitals. By restoring His name we are seeking to obey the third commandment. Read the 44th chapter of Jeremiah for further clarification. These are the Jews who gave us our Greek Bible. Our Savior was of the tribe of Judah, a rabbi, and legitimate son. He therefore bears His Father’s Name. In Hebrew, His native language, His name is Yahshua which means Yahweh is Salvation. Lord means master or Sovereign and God means Almighty when referring to Yahweh or mighty one when referring to false gods. The use of Elohim instead of Almighty follows the same mind set as using Jehovah instead of Yahweh – because it is what the people are used to- yet Yahweh has told us not to substitute the names of others who are seen as gods in His worship. See also Ps 68.4; 83.18; 124.8; 135.13; Isa. 12.2; 26.4; Gen. 22.14; Exo.17.15; Judges 6.24. Yahweh is Almighty and when He forgives your sins they are truly forgiven. Isa. 38.17 & 43.25; Micah 7.19; Heb. 8.12 & 10.17]

[Because of mechanical difficulties I was unable to scan the table you will find enclosed. This lists different character traits. Please pick a character, one or more, from the chapters we covered last week and see how their choices define their character. This will be a round table discussion with first one person presenting their findings on one character and then the next person. If you have chosen more than one person if there is time we will do a second round. I hope you take the time to be honest with yourself and use the list to see how it defines your character.
As an example I have chosen two minor? character studies.
Eliezer – Servant of Abraham – Name means “Almighty is help”
Gen 15.2 He was the ruler of Abraham’s house so we know he was diligent and honest.
Gen 24.1-5 We also know that he was able to concentrate for he understood what was needed.
Gen 24.32-53 He was modest for he only referred to himself as Abraham’s servant.
He was in awe of Yahweh and referred to Him as the Almighty of Abraham his master and he obeyed to the letter.
He refused to receive anything for his own comfort until he had secured the bride, therefore he was also unselfish.
The second person I chose was Abimelech – King of the Philistines – name means “royal father’
Gen 20.1-16 Appropriates Sarah which shows he was both without self-control or conscience. When faced by Yahweh with his sins he claims he is innocent and has integrity, at which point Yahweh tells him that it was Yahweh who held him back not Abimelech’s morals. so we know he was deceitful and self-indulgent.
I hope this sampling aides in your search for character traits.
apparently I have to start post to get page 2 so it will be titled part 2
