-1Timothy 1:5 What is a good conscience and why is it worth having?

One of the heaviest things one can carry is a guilty conscience. That is because it makes it hard to live with one's self. It is just not worth holding onto guilt as it prevents one getting on the spiritual road to a better life which affects all. If one is desiring to be on the spiritual road of living, he or she therefor has a good conscience:.Hebrews 13:18 "...for we trust we have a good conscience, in all things willing to live honestly."

Many think they can just pass off the wayward direction that has led them into more of what they really didn't want. To live with themselves with what they have done, the burden they carry is often left off thinking about instead of being dealt with. Perhaps when it does come to mind, a reasoning comes along with it that it 'wasn't that bad, I've seen others do worse', 'he/she deserved it anyway', 'I didn't pay 'em back as bad as they dished out' or 'the universe didn't strike me down for doing it'. 

The way of forgiveness and mercy is not sought by those who fail to think about what they have done:.Luke 18:9-14; Luke 23:34 "...for they know not what they do..."

They just don't see that Earth is the place of training, that is, the overall reason they are here on Earth in the first place.

They also fail to comprehend what Creator-God can do for them if they have been wronged by another:.Romans 12:19. They have also failed to realize any way to make atonement for negative actions.

But one feeling guilty wants to hide.

The 'word'.(John 1:1).is Christ consciousness in our hearts, the higher consciousness of the Father that Christ came to reveal.

How can our life be resurrected from the heartache of our past and the guilt it may have produced affecting our present?

Acts 24:16 "And herein do I.(Paul).exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God and toward men."
Hebrews 9:14 "How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?"
   Romans 9:1 "I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost."
   Romans 13:5.


-Ephesians 4:11 How did God 'give some' apostles, etc.?
Means God conferred the heart and ability to perform and to get the job done upon those whom he had chosen to do such and such.
-Luke 21:24 and Romans 11:25.What are the times of the Gentiles spoken of here?
The times of the Gentiles refers to the domination of the Gentiles and the dejection of Israel; the time when Israel has no land or heritage on the Earth, the times during which God has determined that the Gentiles shall tread down Jerusalem both physically and spiritually.

These 'times' commenced in the person of Nebuchadnezzar-II and will continue until a union of the Jew.(Romans 2:29 "But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly...").and the Gentile takes place, the city of Jerusalem shall not only be controlled by the Gentiles, but shall be trodden under foot, that is, oppressed by them and for how long?.Revelation 11:2 "...for it is given unto the Gentiles and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.".The history of Jerusalem, to this day, is a striking fulfilment of this prophecy:.Romans 11:1-36.

From the.Four Fold Gospel."By comparing these passages.(Luke 21:24 and Romans 11:25 with the story in Romans 11:1-36), we find that the times of the Gentiles signify that period wherein the church is made up of Gentiles to the almost exclusion of the Jews. The same chapter shows that this period is to be followed by one wherein the Jew and the Gentile unite together in proclaiming the gospel. This prophecy, therefore, declares that until this union of the Jew and the Gentile takes place, the city of Jerusalem shall not only be controlled by the Gentiles, but shall be trodden under foot, that is, oppressed by them. The history of Jerusalem, to this day, is a striking fulfillment of this prophecy."

From.Eclectic Notes."Not only is there the sack of the city, the slaughter and captivity of the people, but continual occupation by their enemies till the termination of the period which God has allowed the nations to have supremacy over Israel."

While it appears that Israel again has land as a nation, many true gentle kind Sephardic Jews who immigrate there often leave shortly after, finding that some of the ruling 'Jews' are overbearing, even cruel. These types of ruling 'Jews' often have a 'Russian' type accent:.Revelation 2:9; 3:9.

It is understood that about 700-900 years ago, the ancient Mongol/Tarters adopted the Jewish religion as they could see it was an effective method for controlling people. They may have got this from knowing about the ancient Mosaic Law's writings.(*).

The Ashkenazim and Sephardim Jew differ in their laws, customs, liturgy.(set of forms for public religious ceremonies).and language.
 


-1John 5:12 What does this verse mean."have life"?
The next verse, verse 13, makes it clearer; then see here.
 
-Acts 1:2 What commandments were these; were they new ones?

Barnes New Testament Notes."...It may be worthy of remark, that the word 'commandments', as a noun in the plural number, does not occur in the original. The single word which is translated."had given commandments".is a participle and means simply 'having commanded'."

And what command was that for the disciples back then? Matthew 28:19.


-John 14:12 Are we to do greater works than Emmanuel and he rose the dead?
Emmanuel's works were limited to the borders of Judea. The apostles works reached thousands more throughout the world at that time. The."greater works".refers to greater in effect, for how much more in intensity can any work be than raising the dead of which both Emmanuel and the apostles did and that others today also do? The apostles also did many miracles.

Today spiritual persons of love are doing incredible things. See the movies.What If? The Movie.and.The Grand Self.and also consider the amazing results in the lives of the students of Bob Proctor and in his own life.

Comprised with.Adam Clarke's Commentary by Gary Gallant
"Because I go unto my Father":.John 14:26,28; 16:7-14; Matthew 28:18; Ephesians 1:20-23; Philippians 2:9-11.
 


-Hebrews 8:8 God says here that He found fault with the people and in the verse just before, it says there was also a fault with the old covenant.(agreement).the people of Israel in the Old Testament had agreed to. Was God wrong on both counts?

Creator makes no mistakes, but He makes up His plan for mankind as things go along:.Ecclesiastes 3:11; Hebrews 8:7; *.

He listens to our words of heart and adjusts His intents.

He made the universe right the first time, made it and maintains it with the hologram He created. He made all living creation correct the first time, but He was yet to find out what they would do with it and in this He had much to learn:.Genesis 6:11-13; Exodus 32:7,8; Genesis 19:24; * ; *. Overall, it wasn't good. The men and women at the beginning just had no heart for Creator-God or the things of the Creator's realm:.Jeremiah 44:16,17

It was God's first time with humans. He soon realized man was turning out as bad as could be expected considering where they came from:.Genesis 8:21,22 "...I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake, for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth, neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.(with the flood)..While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest and cold and heat and summer and winter and day and night shall not cease.".God was not about to give up on man, even though man needed massive amounts of work and still does in order, not to just get his attention, but to awaken:.Galatians 1:6 "I marvel that you are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel."

Like we do with our kids, 'if you do all your chores and keep your room clean, we'll all go to the beach this weekend'. God did the same once he saw humans were not turning out so good. God gave them the ten commandments.(Exodus 20:1-17).and various other guidelines:.Exodus chapters 21 to 24:3.

And the people all agreed:.Exodus 24:3. God saw that the people should be kept reasonably busy and thought of a way to keep their minds on a spiritual symbol by requiring them to build and attend to it:.Exodus 25:1-10.and through to Exodus 31:18 were the instructions.

But they just couldn't do what they had agreed to. So, God made it more rigorous and had a system which hopefully would help the people adhere to a way that would have been good for them:.Deuteronomy 28:1-14. The system was, if you do this, I'll do all these good things for you and if you don't, you're in trouble:.Deuteronomy 28:15-68.

The system God set up included a priesthood and the Mosaic Law, which itself was disastrous in its effect to help the people stay on track so they could be blessed.

It was hopeless! So, then time and time again after, God 'spanked them' and they would smarten up, but only for awhile. It was not just their natures that was the problem, but what the natures were subject to and that was influence by the dark side which kept taking them another step down and away from God:.2Kings 17:15 "And they rejected his statutes and his covenant that he made with their fathers and his testimonies which he testified against them and they followed vanity and became vain and went after the heathen that were round about them, concerning whom the LORD had charged them, that they should not do like them."

It all got to the point of the people hating God so much that they just didn't want anything to do with Him at all:.1Samuel 8:5-22. So, God got out of the way and went hiding.

Something had to be done. And it was. A new heart in them was needed and in Christ, that is now possible. Along with the normal heart subject to the ways of evil, there is this new heart right beside it:.Galatians 4:6.

The great apostle Paul of the New Testament called this ancient Mosaic Law a curse, which it was in the light of what the New Testament was all about.

All the world is a stage, even all the universe.(*).is a stage for His spiritual creation, for expressions of different types, but all is of the same energy, including.us.

Creator-God has an overall plan of education for eternity. The old covenant.(agreement).part of His plan was to show mankind his heart. Few understood that part of God's planning back then:.Deuteronomy 5:29.

Things changed from old covenant times to new covernant times. The old one was found to be a disaster. It was designed for a people with no heart for high consciousness things of the Creator.(?).and so it was gotten rid of. So, God learns as He goes along with us in this human drama, as we all do.

God did know what their heart would be like. It was a 'stacked deck'. He knew what they would be like in living. But they and all mankind has to come to the point of seeing it.(*).. They needed something else back then if they were to ever develop the same consciousness as God. Though God knew what their natures would be like, God was yet to learn how bad the results of those natures could be in the test of real life. God's plan back then was to show them their lack. He allowed all to happen back then as it did, combined with His reaction to it all. Why?
 


-Acts 10:35 What does it mean here."work righteousness"? I thought righteousness is a gift and that salvation was not by works:.Romans 4:2-8; Titus 3:5.
The Bible also says that we are to."work out our own salvation":.Phillipians 2:12.

Righteousness is a gift enabling man to see through the limited  ordinary consciousness of mankind and toward the higher consciousness of God. Ask for it. It's a gift freely available to all. 

Ordinary consciousness was necessary for all of us, as it's what has brought us to where we are today. In that way, it had a good purpose. 

Now what does all this stuff mean?.James 2:14-26 and see 'works and works' and ancient Isaac.
