Titus 1:12 One of themselves, even a prophet of their own said The Cretians.(inhabitants of the island of Crete).are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.(Philippians 3:19).

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God makes salvation appear to all humanity.
Titus 2:11 For the grace of God makes salvation appear to all humanity.

Note that it's God's grace that brings salvation and not God requiring our keeping of laws as the ancients agreed to do in Old Testement times:.Exodus 19:7,8. Salvation is here and now, thanks to what Christ did for humanity to awaken to. Once man awakens, he knows his true statein eternity and he doesn't awaken until the grace of God is upon him:.1Corinthians 1:4. In other words 'the grace of Creator-God upon one is his salvation through awakening'. The Creator looks to you, wants you and you are awakened to your saving from the perils of the world by the resurrected life of He who gave His physical life for our lives and so then, when in Christ we are then saved because of this decision God made regarding you and others who may awaken at this time:.Romans 8:37-39. Do something good with your life because good is of God and consider the many spiritual prompts that daily come to you. The thoughts that come to you fit in that you are of God or of your own choice (*).

Titus 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously and godly, in this present world;

Titus 2:13 Looking.(where does one look?).for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Emmanuel the Christ;
The verse could have been better translated:.'trusting God to bring us along the pathway lit by the example Emmanuel left for us'.
Titus 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
Titus 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might.(no 'might' about it; word 'might' not in the original).redeem us from all iniquity.(*).and purify unto himself.(Ephesians 2:10).a peculiar.(original 'things of one's own'; that is, things of God; we belong to God and are His people once He has given us the Holy Spirit, which is the same nature of love God has if we choose to follow:.Acts 17:30).people, zealous of good works.

Notice it is Him that redeems, purifies and helps us to come into more and more higher consciousness thinking and actions, the result of being in Christ. We were already saved, but didn't know it:.2Timothy 1:9.

Titus 2:15 These things speak and exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise you.
Original for 'Let no man despise you' is 'Despise no one, not even yourself'; and how? conduct yourself with dignity.
Titus 3:1 Put them in mind to be subject to.principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,
Titus 3:1 Put them in mind to be subject to.(original for word 'subject' is 'to arrange oneself', that is, learn how to get along with others:.Romans 12:18; Philippians 2:3).principalities.(*).and powers, to obey magistrates.(*), to be ready to every good work,
Titus 3:2 To speak evil.(word 'evil' here means 'blaspheme').of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, showing all meekness unto all humanity.

Titus 3:3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in maliceand envy, hateful and hating one another.
1Corinthians 6:11; 2Corinthians 4:2.
Titus 3:4 But after.(or, 'because of').that, the kindness and love of God.(*).our Saviour toward man appeared,
God loves humanity so very much (John 3:16,17), He became the Son who appeared on Earth in the physical form of the One called Emmanuel; verses 4,5 here show that humanity without God couldn't develop righteousness that would in any way awaken him to his true state, that of being a spirit/physical creation by God the Father of all.
Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
Titus 3:5 Not by.(or, 'because of').works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us.(when was this?.2Timothy 1:9; the word 'saved' means a lot more than what it seems to just mean on the surface, it also means to become whole by awakening to one's true state), by the washing of regeneration.(original means 'new birth').(*).and renewing.(the physical body is set up to automatically renew as is also the invisible, but very real, spiritual body of us, so we can grow further, can mature in life:.1John 2:12-14; all is sustained.by the energy of the Father-Creator, by means of the essence of the wholeness of spirit, the so-called Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit).of the Holy Ghost.
Titus 3:6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Emmanuel the Christ our Saviour;
How does this apply to each of us?
Titus 3:7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
Original is.'That being justified by his grace, we then are heirs according to the hope of eternal living'; and it's 'according to' because, as hope is a spiritual quailty, an attribute of joy, as grace also is, it's a supply like all things from the spirit of the Creator.
Titus 3:8 This is a faithful saying and these things I will that you affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men..(*)
All good works come from a spiritual heart of love: Matthew 6:22. If you do good works, you have that spiritual heart of love: Romans 13:10.
Titus 3:9 But avoid foolish questions and genealogies and contentions and strivings about the law.(such as: Mark 12:13; John 8:5), for they are unprofitable and vain.

Titus 3:10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject..(?)

Titus 3:11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted and sinneth, being condemned of himself.

Titus 3:12 When I shall send Artemas unto you or Tychicus, be diligent to come unto me to Nicopolis, for I have determined there to winter.

Titus 3:13 Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently, that nothing be wanting unto them.

Titus 3:14 And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful.
