Hatred, The Killing Emotion!
And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound Yahshua, and carried him away, and delivered him to Pilate. And Pilate asked him, Are you the King of the Jews? And he answering said to him, You say. And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing. And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answer you nothing? behold how many things they witness against you. But Yahshua yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled. Now at that feast he released to them one prisoner, whoever they desired. And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection. And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had ever done to them. But Pilate answered them, saying, Will you that I release to you the King of the Jews? For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy. But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas to them. And Pilate answered and said again to them, What will you then that I shall do to him whom you call the King of the Jews? And they cried out again, Impale him. Then Pilate said to them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Impale him. Mark 15:1-14
When therefore the chief priests and the officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Impale him, impale him! Pilate says to them, Take him yourselves, and impale him: for I find no crime in him. John 19:6
But this comes to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause. John 15:25
The chief priests incited the people, and they became violent.
Torah specifically states:
You shall not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shall you speak in a cause to follow after many to wrest judgment: Exodus 23:2
The leaders of Yahshua's time provoked the people to anger. The people became angry! The people became violent! The people wanted Yahshua dead! What is anger?
How Anger Is Expressed
When people are angry they can take any of the following actions:
1.Violent, destructive and/or harmful actions
3.Hurtful or critical remarks (sarcasm/teasing)
4.Passive aggressive behavior
5.Hurtful or destructive fantasies
7.Constructive action (usually assertive behavior)
The energy and motivation that is expressed through the various actions listed above can be focused in one or more of the following directions:
A. It can be suppressed or repressed.
B. It can be directed at an identified external real or imaginary threat.
C. It can be turned inward and directed at a real or imagined personal weakness or inadequacy - an identified internal threat.
D. It can be displaced externally and directed at someone or something unrelated to the source of the frustration.
When you have witnessed behavioral changes as I personally have, you come to recognize it promptly! I have seen individuals, people, change their persona before my very eyes! The following passage explains the schizophrenic personality.
He has put forth his hands against such as were at peace with him:
He has profaned his covenant.
His mouth was smooth as butter,
But his heart was war:
His words were softer than oil,
Yet were they drawn swords.
Many times, individuals display a passive persona in their public presentation of themselves. However; the real person is aggressive, and capable of violence, or inciting to violence those who listen to their smooth lying tongue. What are the characteristics of the passive/aggressive individual. How can we recognize the traits and not be deceived? Perhaps the following profile will aid us to discern this type! First we want a good definition for recognition purposes. You need to know what your looking at or for.
Medical Encyclopedia: Passive-aggressive
Personality disorder - passive-aggressive
Passive aggressive personality disorder is a chronic condition in which a person seems to acquiesce to the desires and needs of others, but actually passively resists them and becomes increasingly hostile and angry.
Note: psychiatrists no longer recognize this condition as an official diagnosis; however, the symptoms are problematic to many people and may be helped by professional attention, so we include it here.
Causes, incidence, and risk factors
The causes are unknown, but, like most personality disorders, a combination of genetic and environmental factors are probably responsible.
People with this disorder resent responsibility and show it through their behaviors rather than by open expression of their feelings. Procrastination, inefficiency, and forgetfulness are behaviors commonly used to avoid doing what they need to do or have been told by others must be done.
A person with this disorder may appear to comply with another's wishes, and may even say that he wants to do what he has agreed to do, but the requested action is either performed too late to be helpful, performed in a way that is useless, or otherwise sabotaged to express anger about compliance that isn't related verbally.
Signs and tests
Personality disorders are diagnosed by psychological evaluation and a careful history of the extent and time course of the symptoms. Some of the common signs of passive-aggressive personality disorder include:
Avoiding responsibility by claiming forgetfulness
Does not express hostility or anger openly
Resists suggestions from others
Counseling may be of value in helping the person identify and change the behavior.
The outcome can be good with treatment.
Stunted career development despite good intelligence
Alcohol abuse or other drug abuse or dependence
Calling your health care provider
Call your health care provider if you or your child has symptoms suggestive of passive-aggressive personality disorder.

After reading the definition, and then seeing the problems associated with this condition, you might know someone who exhibits these identical tendencies. Should a true worshipper have these disorders? Perhaps! When Yahshua was here on earth, he had to basically repair many disorders. From physical to mental, Yahshua cured every kind of sickness by casting out the source of these disorders, demons. Remember the man who dwelt among the tombs in Mark chapter five? What state of mind was he in?
And they came to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gerasenes. And when he was come out of the boat, straightway there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, who had his dwelling in the tombs: and no man could any more bind him, no, not with a chain; because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been rent asunder by him, and the fetters broke in pieces: and no man had strength to tame him. And always, night and day, in the tombs and in the mountains, he was crying out, and cutting himself with stones. And when he saw Yahshua from afar, he ran and worshipped him; and crying out with a loud voice, he says, What have I to do with you, Yahshua, you Son of the Most High El? I command you by Elohim, torment me not. For he said to him, Come forth, you unclean spirit, out of the man. And he asked him, What is your name? And he says to him, My name is Legion; for we are many. And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country. Now there was there on the mountain side a great herd of swine feeding. And they besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. And he gave them leave. And the unclean spirits came out, and entered into the swine: and the herd rushed down the steep into the sea, in number about two thousand; and they were drowned in the sea. And they that fed them fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they came to see what it was that had come to pass. And they come to Yahshua, and behold him that was possessed with demons sitting, clothed and in his right mind, even him that had the legion: and they were afraid. Mark 5:1-15
Would anyone in their "right mind" hate their fellow man? No! Would a right minded person want to kill their fellow man? No! Love motivates the true worshipper. They seek the good and not the evil. The following illustrates the true worshipper.
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of Yahweh; and every one that loves is begotten of Yahweh, and knows Yahweh. He that loves not knows not Yahweh; for Yahweh is love. Herein was the love of Yahweh manifested in us, that Yahweh has sent his only begotten Son into the world that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved Yahweh, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if Yahweh so loved us, we also should love one another 1 John 4:7-11
This contrasts sharply with those who bear hatred and ill-will toward their fellow man. Observe the disparity in these two passages! Notice the comparison in 1 John 2:9-11 concerning who loves his brother and who hates his brother.
He that says he is in the light and hates his brother, is in the darkness even until now. He that loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no occasion of stumbling in him. But he that hates his brother is in the darkness, and walks in darkness, and knows not where he goes, because the darkness has blinded his eyes. 1 John 2:9-11
Now! Which one are you? Are you the one who loves? Or! Are you the one who hates? Your choice!
Yours in Messiah, Hawke
