... knowing this first, that no prophecy of scripture is of its own interpretation - 2 Pet 1:20
Rom 1:5, "For we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name."
As an apostolic ministry we are reaching into over 50 nations.
We are dedicated to be obedient to the commission, and see every nation reached with the gospel of Jesus the Messiah.
God created us with a conscience. It is the faculty by which we apprehend the will of God, as that which is designed to govern our lives [from the best of Vines Dictionary in the Strong's Concordance, Greek #4893]. It is a powerful faculty that resides in our spirit giving us a moral consciousness, the ability to know what is right and wrong. In the Greek language it is the word suneidesis and literally means a knowing, a co-knowledge with oneself. The conscience is the place in our spirit where we know things, not because we were taught them, but a knowledge intrinsic in our being due to our being created in the image and likeness of God. God had always intended that we be governed in our lives by the conscience He had created us with.
The Scribes and Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery to Jesus with the intent of trapping Him and accusing Him in regards to the law of Moses (John 8:1-6). Jesus had a word of wisdom by the Spirit, "He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first" John 8:7. After writing on the ground and speaking this word, it says of those Scribes and Pharisees, "Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest to the last" v.9.
They were convicted by their conscience. The word convicted has the meaning: admonished, refuted, brought to light, exposed, chided, reproved, chastened [Strong's Concordance Greek #1651, also Thayer's]. I am sure we have all experienced this at times. It is shockingly powerful to be exposed, admonished, reproved and chided by our conscience. This is when we know that what we have done is so wrong and we then feel the sense of shame beginning to cover us like a blanket. It can be so strong that it completely changes our course of action!
