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
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
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
12:19. They have also failed to realize any way to make atonement
for negative actions.
But one feeling guilty wants
our hearts, the higher consciousness of the
Father that Christ came

it may have produced affecting our present?

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?"

me witness in the Holy Ghost."

by the Gentiles, but shall be trodden under foot, that is, oppressed by
them and for how long?.Revelation

history of Jerusalem, to this day, is a striking fulfilment
of this prophecy:.Romans
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.
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."

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
It is understood that about

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.(*).

no heart for Creator-God or the

be expected considering where they came

Like we do with our kids,

out so good. God gave them the ten commandments.(Exodus
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
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
The system God set up included

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
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

Law a curse, which it was in the light of what the New Testament was

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

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?

is a gift and that salvation was not by works:.Romans

also says that we are to."work

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.
