Humans are social beings and they love interacting with each other. Given a chance we can talk and interact with as many people as possible. I had many times gone home hurting from words spoken by ‘people’ to deliberately hurt my feelings. My wife’s wise counsel was simple “I should stop unnecessary social interactions that had no value”. I tried it and it surprisingly worked!
I later discovered that I was not being hurt by people but by what was randomly coming out of people’s personalities. Whatever was residing in there, was not always right and did not like me! My problem was, I was getting myself yoked with minds that were demonised. These minds were under the control of demons! Most people walking in the streets are demonised and you should always watch out who you attempt to bond with. No wonder the bible says in 2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be unequally yoked…
About this time, the moment of truth hit me about the evil behind some people’s personalities. I stopped all unnecessary interactions and if by any chance I had to do it, I first prayed about it.
When you read the scriptures, you will discover the puzzling truths about fruits in people’s personalities. Many humans exude personalities of unclean spirits living comfortably in them!
I learned that we struggle to relate to other people due to the bad fruits found in their personality. Before this, I always wondered why people behaved the way they did. Jesus said in Matthew 7:16 (NASB) You will know them by their fruits...
I now use personality fruits as my radar before I let in anyone into my personal space. I have now come to appreciate the fact that the fruits are manifested for you so that you can decide how you wish to relate to that person.
Personality fruits literally jump out of people as they respond to their social environment. You only need to observe quietly. Life has enough triggers to expose any pretense. The real spiritual nature of the person will come out! Be patient and give yourself time. True residents in people nature will always play out. When they emerge, you can see it in their eyes, you can feel it in your spirit or you will simply know without knowing why!
The biggest danger is to ignore or tolerate and interact with persons displaying bad fruits. If you are not of the same nature, you will be hurt! Demonised humans talk about sex, they gossip, engage in character assassination of others and are preoccupied by idolatry!
Personality fruits in humans are found in Galatians 5:19-24. The are divided into two categories, the pleasant and the unpleasant fruits.
The unpleasant fruits are found in those embracing the evil living in them. These intelligent evil beings push them to live under the control of the flesh (self), displaying bad fruits such as, sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures,idolatry and witchcraft; hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division,envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other .
The pleasant fruits are found in those that are delivered from the control of unclean spirits and instead are living under the guidance of the Holy Spirit displaying fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,gentleness, and self-control.
Tip: Your flesh (self) cannot yield to the Holy Spirit if there are still unclean spirits living in you which are actually the source of the unpleasant fruits. Don’t struggle to suppress the unpleasant fruits, deal with the source by getting delivered from these evil characters living in you and giving you the bad fruits.
