Hebrews 9:11 So Christ has now become the High Priest over all the good things that have come. He has entered that greater, more perfect Tabernacle in heaven, which was not made by human hands and is not part of this created world. 12 With His —own blood, not the blood of goats and calves—He entered the Most Holy Place Once For All Time and Secured Our Redemption Forever.:13 Under the old system, the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a young cow could cleanse people’s bodies from ceremonial impurity.:14 Just Think How Much More the blood of Christ will purify our consciences from sinful deeds SO THAT we can worship the living God. For by the power of the eternal Spirit, Christ offered Himself to God as a perfect sacrifice for our sins.
Conscience – an inner feeling or voice viewed as acting as a guide to the rightness or wrongness of one’s behavior:
Our feelings can be devastating to our faith walk if we live sense ruled. Understanding our position in Christ Has everything to do with our ability to receive or not receive the promises of God.
Pro 23:7 For as he hath thought in his soul, so is he.
Mar_4:24 And he said unto them, Take heed WHAT YE HEAR: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.
Luk_8:18 Take heed therefore HOW YE HEAR: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.
ZEAL With Out Knowledge!!
Rom 10:1 Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. :2 For I bear them record that they have a ZEAL OF GOD, but not according to knowledge.:3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth.
A ZEAL OF GOD WITH OUT KNOWLEDGE WILL PRODUCE PRIDE!
A ZEAL OF GOD WITH KNOWLEDGE FROM THE WORD WILL PRODUCE HUMILITY & GRATITUDE FOR WHAT GOD HAS AND IS DOING FOR YOU!!
Rom_10:3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, HAVE NOT SUBMITTED THEMSELVES UNTO THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD.
2 Cor 5:20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making His appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” 21 For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that We Could Be Made Right With God Through Christ. He is Our Righteousness!!

The Accuser Of The Brethern
Rev 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
A Guilty Conscience will cause us to shy away from God. If we listen to the voice in our head that is telling us we are guilty for this and guilty for that after a while we begin to agree with the adversary. Pretty soon we are walking around with a sense of shame and Guilt. Instead of walking by Faith and in the Authority that has been given to us as beleivers.
