I’m sharing a comment made by a JW on this forum concerning the organizational responsibilities of the eight leading men in the organization:

“’To he who has been given much, much will be expected’..….the GB operates, in my view, in harmony with that.”

As I was thinking how to reply, I detected the counterfeit in place by Satan, with traits that previously had escaped my notice. I perceived in its totality, Satan’s well-crafted counterfeit in play. We realize the scripture the JW cited (Luke 12:48) refers to the parable of the faithful and wise “house” steward in Luke –a steward of this anointed house: 1 Pet 2:5,9; Eph 2:20-22; 1 Cor 3:16,17

The “faithful steward” is to provide “food in due season” to all servants in the house, by gathering and managing provisions from each of the Master’s servants and dispensing them among all. (Luke 12:42) Accordingly, the anointed Body who have received their various gifts of Holy Spirit, build the Body up spiritually by contributing their share of provisions. (1 Cor 12:4-7; Eph 4:4-8,11-13)

Since each slave is a “steward” of God’s Word, all who contribute the needed provisions would be in harmony with Christ’s truth. (1 Cor 4:1,2; 12:12,27) (John 6:47,51; 1 Cor 10:17; John 15:4; Matt 7:20)

Is this what your eight leaders allow to occur among the anointed “house”? No. They have voiced the stipulation that the anointed are not to gather or bond together; especially, to study the scriptures. Do you detect any malicious threat against the anointed behind this message? (You can find this man-made decree in both the 1/2016 and 1/2020 study magazines) If a JW family is allowed to study God’s word together, why restrict the anointed from doing the same, as a spiritual “family”/body under their Head Jesus Christ? Please ask yourself this, JWs.

However, the counterfeit becomes crystal clear when I read over the JW’s comment once more: “’To he who has been given much, much will be expected’….. the GB operates, in my view, in harmony with that.”

Your leaders are most definitely faithful stewards of another house comprised of the “Gentile” elder body who are stationed as the working cog of the organization. (Joel 2:5-9; Rev 9:3,7; 13:1,2,4) What JWs see, is a body of men (counterfeit to the anointed Body of Christ – Rev 13:1,2; 12:7; 19:19/Rev 1:20; 5:10;12:4;Dan 8:10; Rev 11:3; 19:14) working harmoniously to provide and distribute spiritual food under the steward’s guidance. (Rev 13:12,14)

A writing committee made up of elders or “helpers”, (a counterfeit priesthood – 2 Chron 23:6; Num 3:10; Mark 13:14; 2 Thess 2:4; Rev 9:3,4;13:5-7;11:2,7/1 Pet 2:5,9;1 Cor 3:16,17; Rev 1:6; 5:9,10 ) offers its contributions to the organization’s “steward”. And, as a good house manager, the steward scrutinizes, approves, compiles and direct the distribution of what those in this house have submitted.

To the average JW, it appears that the composite steward is getting the job done, in a humble and faithful manner. Your leaders have aided this perception by admitting to the large load of responsibilities each of the eight members face every day; the responsibilities of spiritual oversight and managing the regular operations of an earthly organization through its various committees. (a counterfeit “Zion”- Zech 4:7,9; Rev 8:8; 3:9/Rev 3:12; 5:10; 7:15)

For one who is ignorant of the truth about the identity of God’s House and the anointed Body of Christ, Luke 12:42-44 can easily be understood as fulfilled in the role of the GB. The counterfeit relies on what the eyes physically see, and the ears physically hear; visual evidence of a smooth-running organization, with opportunities to hear what personal messages your leaders convey through videos.

To sustain this “spirit-directed” image which your leaders have sanctioned as the source of truth, it is necessary that the anointed are beat down into oblivion, by use of the unscriptural comments found in your magazines. (Rev 13:5-7; 2 Thess 2:4; Dan 8:11; 11:36,37; Rev 11:2) No rival against the organization is permitted; unity among all JWs as defined by the “steward”, is imperative! Yet, such actions characterize a “wicked steward” ruling over the anointed House of God. (1 Cor 3:9,10; Eph 2:19-22)

According to God’s word, the anointed must seek out their brothers in Christ, working together under their Head. But for the wicked slave, unbreakable unity among all members, is a control mechanism that ensures the slave’s unrighteous power over the anointed priesthood, facilitated by the “Gentile” Beast. (Heb 10:21,24,25; Col 1:18; Eph 5:23,26,27,30-32; 1 Pet 4:10; 1 Cor 12:24-26) (Matt 24:48-51; Rev 13:15,16,7; Rev 11:3,7)

“Instead, God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the less honorable, so that there would be no division in the body, but that the members would have the same concern for each other.” 1 Cor 12:24b,25 

This Body is the anointed Temple “Bride”, with Christ as her Head. (John 2:19-21; 1 Pet 2:5,9; 2 Cor 6:16; Eph 5:23; Rev 3:12; 21:2)

Through it, God’s laws becomes known to all; but since it lies in ruins, “living stones” mute and scattered throughout the organization, God’s laws are unheeded. (Mal 2:7; Heb 8:10) (Neh 1:4-10)

 

Pearl Doxsey:

First of all, we should establish that the master Christ's household, are genuine anointed (Eph 2:19-22; 3:17; 1 Pet 2:4,5; Heb 3:6)

Next, to recognize that Jesus appoints a steward/shepherd to the household sheep of each era, to be the channel of spiritual food to the master's household (Luke 12:42; Rev 11:3; John 21:17; 1 Thess 5:12,13; Heb 13:17; Rev 22:1,2; Matt 7:20; Rev 1:20; Phil 2:15; Dan 12:3,10; Rev 22:6; Mal 3:1-3)

Such stewards are compared to stars/burning lamplight/messenger-angels... to their own lampstand/congregation/household (Rev 1:20).

Those appointed stewards, can prove diligent, obedient, refreshing, loving, and faithful,
or unfaithful, wicked, drunk, disloyal, deceptive, spiritually lethal, and unloving (1 John 3:10-12) (Rev 1:20; 8:10,11; 9:1-3,10; 13:11,15; 11:3,7; John 16:2).

The wicked stewards, battle with the faithful ones (2 Cor 11:1-15; 10:3-5; Eph 6:12,13; Rev 16:13-16;17:14; 2 Thess 2:1-3,9-13; 1 Tim 4:1).

 Each hearer must decide, which "congregation"/lampstand they will belong to, based upon whose spiritual food, and which steward/prophet, they accept.
The wicked steward (as described at Luke 12:45 and Matt 24:48,48)…

…also are described as "eating and drinking with drunkards" as well as getting drunk themselves (Luke 12:45; Rev 17:6; 18:24; Matt 23:31-39; 1 John 3:12,15,16).

That alliance with other drunkards, is depicted within many scriptures... (Matt 24:49; Dan 2:33; Rev 13:1,11,15;17:3)

...as well as how that alliance works against/"beats", the faithful (Rev 13:15,7; 11:7; John 16:2; Mark 8:35; Col 2:8; Rev 13:10; Luke 21:24).


There is a saying that one can be “drunk with power” and is exhibited in those with narcissistic personality disorder. The most famous narcissist that we all know, is Satan. He is the epitome of selfish intentions used in achieving power, and which leads to another’s destruction. (Isa 33:1; Luke 4:5-8; John 10:10) His tool to achieve it, is deception. (Matt 24:4,5; 2 Cor 2:11; Eph 5:6; Rev 20:7-10) His other necessary tool is the use of humans to carry out his deceptive plans. (Matt 24:24; Luke 22:31;2 Thess 2:1-3,9,10; 1 Tim 4:1;Rev 16:13,14; Rev 8:10,11;13:11-13; 12:1-4,15)

He is the greatest adversary that God’s anointed…and all of us…must face in these last days. (Gen 3:15; 1 Pet 5:8; Eph 6:12; Rev 12:15) A human can reflect the same narcissistic traits as Satan, caring only for their personal image and their need for admiration. Their will and desire are accomplished through those whom they utilize, who also become “drunk with power”. (Matt 24:48,49; 2 Tim 3:13)

From JWs, I continually hear how meek and lowly the organization’s primary leaders present themselves. Can a narcissist hide his true intentions and appear “righteous”? Well, can Satan? (2 Cor 11:12-15 )

 

Pearl continues…

The events now taking place between the anointed with power (through an alliance with the Gentile Beast)
 

... and those whose power has been "trampled down" and "brought to nothing"... (Dan 8:9-13; 2 Thess 2:4; Dan 11:31-36; Mark 13:13,14; Rev 11:2; 13:7,10; Luke 21:24),
 

...did not take God and Jesus by surprise. They prophesied these developments to us, thousands of years in advance. It is only a matter of recognition on our own part, whether or not we perceive and understand, what is now taking place in prophetic detail (Matt 24:15,16; Mark 13:13,14), within God's household of priests, and the unloving steward, now using a Beast, to "beat" his fellows.

From Pearl Doxsey’s article, "By this ( love among yourselves ), all will know that you are truly my disciples"   4womaninthewilderness blogspot

 

The organization’s claims against the anointed are defiant, sarcastic, slanderous and hypocritical; sourced from the mouth of a superior, “elite” “wicked steward”. The dual leadership of false “christs”, and a false priesthood, is a combined superior force, that has perverted God’s laws regarding His priesthood. (Ezek 44:6-9; 1 Cor 3:16,17; 1 Cor 4:8; Rev 13:15-17; 16:13,14; Matt 15:9)  

I do hope there are those out there, who comprehend what is happening to God’s anointed ones in the organization and the abomination committed against God’s laws and his Temple. (1 Cor 3:16,17) I hope you care enough to learn what the importance of the anointed Body of Christ means to those desiring the Kingdom. (Matt 10:40-42; 25:34-36; Rev 21:9; 22:17)  

The irony in all of this; the organization would be no different from any other religion if the anointed were not part of it. Truly, they are held hostage as a unique treasure to be manipulated and dominated by men, a repeat of history. (Isa 49:24-26; Luke 21:24; Col 2:8; Isa 42:22; Rev 13:10; 3:10,18; 18:4-8)

So what is the step forward ?  The world / system of things,  is obviously getting worse, and the bible tells us of a coming Judgement time. So how will God's true Anointed move forward to claim their rightful position ?  How will people of this world know who to trust ?

As far as everyone in this world, this “kosmos”, the apostle Paul said in 1 Cor 5:12,13 -

What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? 13 God will judge those outside. “Expel the wicked person from among you.” 

For those on the “outside” of the anointed body,

For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.  2 Chron 16:9

God’s judgments are righteous and pure.  We can be assured that since He reads each heart perfectly, He also judges each heart in the world, flawlessly.  WT’s depiction of a physical Armageddon is not produced at the hands of God, but produced by the Destroyer. No matter how the WT portrays it, Jesus is not that Destroyer.  (John 10:10; 1 John 5:19; Heb 2:14 (“power of death”); John 8:44(“murderer”); Rev 9:11; Isa 33:2)  http://armageddon-obadiah.blogspot.com/

I mentioned “counterfeit” in the comment above.  Anything and everything that happens on the worldly scene is a counterfeit of the true battle at hand, are God's anointed "kings of the earth"; between the faithful and those anointed who have fallen in with Satan.  (Rev 8:10,11) The battle is between those “kings” who speak either truth or lies.    (Rev 1:5; 5:9,10;19:19; 21:24; Rev 16:13,14; Joel 3:14)

Currently, it is spiritual “Israel”, the anointed, that needs to hear Christ’s message, as well as all JWs with them.  (Matt 10:6,7; Rev 18:4-8)  You can imagine why, since you perceive how the anointed are dismissed and downtrodden – “trampled” by the GB and elder body.  (Dan 7:19; 8:10; Rev 11:2; 13:5,6) You can see that God’s “saints” reside in an atmosphere of sin and oppression.  All of this was prophesied through Jesus, the apostles, Daniel, and the Revelation given to John. I know this is hard to understand, but Satan who so desired to see Jesus destroyed, also wants those who are part of his Body, those under the New Covenant/woman, (Gal 4:26) to be destroyed; but he uses deceit to do so in the last days. (Luke 21:8; Matt 2:7,8; Rev 13:10; Col 2:8; Rev 12:15)  So, how would he do it?  By crafting a counterfeit “Zion” in the last days and baiting it, with teachings of truth.  God allows this to occur, since Satan demands each heart to be sifted as “wheat”. (2 Thess 2:11,12)  Satan has created a counterfeit “that serves the lie”,  which we either come to love, - an act of idolatry (2 Thess 2:9; Rev 13:4) -  or we turn God and Christ as our salvation and reject an organization that is the inspiration of men.  For every individual anointed one who follows in Christ’s footsteps, fully, to the point of being expelled from the organization,and are rejected, hated and considered spiritually “dead”, Satan and his lies are thrown down.  (Matt 5:10-12; Mark 13:9-11; John 16:2; Rev 3:12) (Rev 20:12; 12:10,11)

“When they persecute you in this city, flee to another. For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.”  Matt 10:23

Not the country of Israel, but spiritual “Israel” today in the anointed ones – God’s “land”, His “inhabited earth”.  (Matt 24:14; 1 Cor 3:9; 1 Pet 4:17)

Jesus is speaking about the message that he sends through “two (two meaning “truth” John 8:17) witnesses” (Matt 17:1-3,11; Rev 11:1-3)  Now, the organization teaches that this happened when Rutherford and his cohorts went to prison and three literal days later were released.  He went to prison because of a book that held teachings and lies that even the organization cannot bear revealing today. That occurrence was also a counterfeit …of Rev 11:1-3. The authentic “two witnesses” are spiritually, symbolically “killed” through disfellowshipping, by the collusion of two “beasts”; one as an organization, the other as a “false prophet” that direct it (Rev chapter 13).  Rev 11:2 speak of “Gentiles”/elders standing in, ruling over, over God’s Temple/anointed ones. (1 Cor 3:16,17)  The “two witnesses” preach of this transgression, and are expelled for doing so.  (Rev 11:3,7;13:15) (1 Pet 2:5,9; 1 Cor 3:16,17). We see the elders as another priesthood that has the power to “kill” the authentic priesthood, when they reject the organization’s leadership, and turn to Christ.   This is the action of the “man of lawless” in the form of the elder body.  2 Thess 2:1-4;9-12.  When we perceive this “trampling” of God’s Temple, we are to flee – not to be apart of the organization’s many sins.  Rev 18:4-8

Mark 13:14 – “When you see “the abomination that causes desolation” standing where it does not belong – let the reader understand – then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.”

Isn’t it true that the anointed priesthood is now desolate, and exists in name only?  Matt 5:13-16

What you are experiencing, is a spiritual awakening, a “tribulation” unlike any other, (Matt 24:21) that tries the heart and mind in a symbolic, spiritual sense.  (Mark 13:7-12)  Jesus said, he didn’t come to bring peace to the earth, but division. (Matt 10:34)  Division must take place among God’s anointed “kings”, to cleanse, and purify the final remnant/”capstone” of the Temple/priesthood, right before the Kingdom arrives.  Malachi chapter 3; Zech chapter 4

And, it will arrive, not through an immoral (both fleshly and spiritually) earthly organization. Isa 66:1 “Jacob”/”Israel” is restored outside of the WT, with those “living stones”/“dwelling” of God,  who submit to their Head, Jesus Christ. Most, will not submit to Christ, but choose to cling to the false security offered by the organization and the rules of men. (Isa 10:17-23; 1 Thess 5:3)

Zion will arise –  The promise of God’s Kingdom will be fulfilled, but not through the way of men.  God’s faithful, refined anointed “move forward”, by receiving the kingdom.  If you copy and paste the following scriptures into biblegateway.com, hopefully you will see this fulfillment.  They speak of a “signal” given by God which will gather people to the faithful anointed – to “Jerusalem”.  (Rev 11:18; Gal 4:26)

Isa 60:2; Rev 10:1; Isa 2:1,2

Isa 11:12; 5:26; 49:22; 18:3; 31:9; 62:10; Zech 9:16; 4:7

Dan 7:13,14,17,18,21,22,26,27

There are no “new scrolls” to be opened as the WT teaches.  We have the scrolls – the book of Revelation.  Daniel was told, ““Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealed until the time of the end. 10 Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.” 

11 From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. 12 Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days. (Dan 12:9-12)

We are living during that time period.  The “daily sacrifice” that God expects from the mouths of His priests, has been abolished. (1 Pet 2:5; Heb 13:15)  The abomination that causes desolation, is the usurping of the priesthood by the elder body.  (Matt 24:15; Dan 8:12; 2 Thess 2:1-12)

Isa 62:11 - The Lord has made proclamation
    to the ends of the earth:
“Say to Daughter Zion,
    ‘See, your Savior comes!
See, his reward is with him,
    and his recompense accompanies him.’”

Rev 22:12 - “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done."

 

I hope all the scriptures are correct.

I mentioned “counterfeit” in the comment above.  Anything and everything that happens on the worldly scene is a counterfeit of the true battle at hand, are God's anointed "kings of the earth"; between the faithful and those anointed who have fallen in with Satan.  (Rev 8:10,11) The battle is between those “kings” who speak either truth or lies.    (Rev 1:5; 5:9,10;19:19; 21:24; Rev 16:13,14; Joel 3:14)

EDIT -

"Anything and everything that happens on the worldly scene between rulers of this world, is a counterfeit of the true battle at hand, which concerns God's anointed "kings of the earth" - between the faithful and those anointed who have fallen in with Satan"

    • RECHERCHONS DES PERLES SPIRITUELLES - SEMAINE DU 16 Décembre 2019 - Révélation 13-16.docx RECHERCHONS DES PERLES SPIRITUELLES - SEMAINE DU 16 Décembre 2019 - Révélation 13-16.pdf Recherchons des perles spirituelles (8 min) : Révélation 13-16 Révélation 16:13, 14 : Comment les nations seront-elles rassemblées pour « la guerre du grand jour de Dieu le Tout-Puissant » ? (w09 15/2 4 § 5). « Et j’ai vu trois paroles inspirées impures qui ressemblaient à des grenouilles sortir de la gueule du dragon et de la gueule de la bête sauvage et de la bouche du faux prophète. 14 Ce sont en effet des paroles inspirées par des démons, et elles produisent des signes, et elles sortent vers les rois de toute la terre habitée, afin de les rassembler pour la guerre du grand jour de Dieu le Tout-Puissant. » Les “ paroles inspirées impures ” symbolisent la propagande démoniaque qui a pour but d’empêcher que les rois de la terre ne se laissent ébranler par le déversement des sept bols de la fureur de Dieu, mais aussi de manœuvrer ces rois pour qu’ils s’opposent à Jéhovah. - w09 15/2 4 § 5 Satan sera très en colère. Il exprimera sa colère en se servant d’une propagande démoniaque — des « paroles inspirées impures » — pour pousser une coalition de nations à s’attaquer aux serviteurs de Jéhovah. Cette coalition de nations est appelée « Gog du pays de Magog ». Comme un marionnettiste, Satan va manipuler les puissances politiques et les forces armées pour qu’elles lancent un assaut sur tous ceux qui adorent Jéhovah Dieu. Quand ces nations se mettront à attaquer les serviteurs de Dieu, elles seront arrivées au lieu symbolique appelé Armaguédon – TG2019/9 §13 En Révélation 16:13, des “ paroles inspirées impures ” sont comparées à des grenouilles, ce qui est approprié puisque, sous la Loi mosaïque, les grenouilles étaient impures, impropres à la consommation.- it-1 p1029 Révélation 16:21 : Quel message allons-nous sûrement proclamer juste avant la fin du monde de Satan ? (w15 15/7 16 § 9). « Puis d’énormes grêlons, d’environ un talent chacun, sont tombés du ciel sur les humains, et les humains ont blasphémé contre Dieu à cause du fléau de la grêle, car ce fléau était d’une ampleur exceptionnelle. » 9 Ce ne sera pas le moment de prêcher la « bonne nouvelle du royaume ». Ce temps-là sera révolu. L’époque de « la fin » sera arrivée ! (Mat. 24:14). Les serviteurs de Dieu proclameront sans aucun doute un message de jugement percutant. Celui-ci pourrait bien comporter une déclaration annonçant que la fin complète du monde de Satan est imminente. La Bible compare ce message à une grêle. On lit : « Une grande grêle, dont chaque grêlon pesait environ un talent, est descendue du ciel sur les hommes, et les hommes ont blasphémé Dieu à cause de la plaie de la grêle, parce que grande était sa plaie, extraordinairement » (Rév. 16:21). - w15 15/7 16 § 9 Les grêlons symboliques mentionnés en Révélation 16:21, d’un poids d’environ un talent (20,4 kg selon le système grec), seraient une plaie dévastatrice. La fin de ce monde approchant, la proclamation des jugements de Jéhovah à l’encontre du système mauvais de Satan comprendra probablement des messages verbaux très virulents représentés, selon toute vraisemblance, par de la grêle. Cela dit, la majorité des humains continuera à blasphémer Dieu. – TG2009  15/2 p4 Le moment viendra peut-être où notre message sera comme “ un grand cri de guerre ”. Dans le livre de la Révélation, de puissants messages de jugement sont décrits comme “ une grande grêle, dont chaque grêlon pesait environ un talent ”. Quel rôle le ministère de maison en maison jouera-t-il dans la proclamation de ces ultimes messages de jugement ? Nous ne le savons pas encore. Mais ce dont nous pouvons être sûrs, c’est qu’avant la fin de “ la grande tribulation ”, le nom de Jéhovah aura été rendu public comme jamais dans toute l’histoire humaine – TG2008  15/7 p7 §16 Pendant la grande tribulation, notre message sera sans doute différent de celui que nous prêchons maintenant. Aujourd’hui, nous annonçons la bonne nouvelle du Royaume et nous nous efforçons de faire des disciples. Mais pendant la grande tribulation, nous prêcherons certainement un message percutant comparable à d’énormes grêlons (Rév. 16:21). Nous proclamerons peut-être la destruction très prochaine du monde de Satan. Le moment venu, nous saurons exactement quel message proclamer et comment le faire. Utiliserons-nous les mêmes méthodes que celles que nous utilisons depuis plus de 100 ans pour accomplir notre ministère ? Ou en utiliserons-nous d’autres ? Nous verrons bien. En tout cas, il semble que nous aurons l’honneur de proclamer courageusement le message de jugement de Jéhovah Notre message poussera très probablement les nations à essayer de mettre définitivement fin à notre prédication. Tout comme nous avons besoin du soutien de Jéhovah quand nous prêchons aujourd’hui, nous aurons besoin de compter sur lui à ce moment-là. Nous pouvons être sûrs que notre Dieu nous ‘remplira de force’ pour que nous puissions faire sa volonté  - TG2019/10  §8,9 Qu’est-ce que la lecture biblique de cette semaine t’a appris sur Jéhovah ? La Bible parle d’un ange qui dit aux habitants de toute la terre d’adorer Dieu (Révélation 14:6, 7). Comment fait-il ? Est-ce qu’il crie du haut du ciel pour être entendu par tout le monde ? — Non. Ce sont les disciples de Jésus sur la terre qui parlent de Dieu autour d’eux, et les anges les aident dans cette tâche. Ils veillent à ce que tous les humains qui veulent vraiment connaître Dieu aient l’occasion d’entendre parler de lui. Nous aussi, nous pouvons participer à cette prédication et recevoir l’aide des anges. – Enseignant p65 ‘ Une bonne nouvelle éternelle à annoncer ’ et qu’il dit d’une voix forte : “ Craignez Dieu et rendez-lui gloire, parce que l’heure de son jugement est venue. ” (Révélation 14:6, 7). Cette “ heure ” de jugement est une période courte qui englobe à la fois le moment où les jugements divins décrits dans la prophétie sont prononcés et celui où ils sont exécutés. Nous vivons actuellement cette période. Aujourd’hui, avant que l’heure du jugement ne s’achève, l’exhortation retentit : “ Craignez Dieu et rendez-lui gloire. ” Qu’implique-t-elle ? Craindre Dieu comme il convient, c’est se détourner du mal – TG2005  1/5 p23 Révélation 15:3 dit : « Grandes et prodigieuses sont tes œuvres, Jéhovah Dieu, le Tout-Puissant. Justes et vraies sont tes manières d’agir, Roi d’éternité. » Que veut dire le titre « Tout-Puissant » ? Que Jéhovah est la personne la plus puissante de l’univers. Et que veut dire le titre « Roi d’éternité » ? Qu’il est éternel, c’est-à-dire qu’il a toujours existé – Enseigne p13 La Bible dit de Jéhovah : “ Toi seul tu es fidèle. ” (Révélation 15:4). Comment est-ce possible ? Des humains et des anges n’ont-ils pas, eux aussi, manifesté une fidélité remarquable. Et Jésus Christ ? N’est-il pas le “ fidèle ” de Dieu ? Alors pourquoi affirmer que Jéhovah seul est fidèle ? C’est d’abord parce que la fidélité relève de l’amour. Puisque “ Dieu est amour ”, qu’il en est la personnification, qui donc pourrait manifester la fidélité plus complètement que lui. Les anges et les humains ont bien la faculté de refléter ses attributs, mais lui seul est fidèle au sens absolu. Et puis, étant “ l’Ancien des jours ”, il exerce la bonté de cœur depuis plus longtemps que n’importe laquelle de ses créatures, céleste ou terrestre. Jéhovah est donc le modèle suprême de fidélité ; aucune de ses créatures ne soutient la comparaison. - Approchez-vous de Jéhovah  p282 §7,8 Que se passera-t-il après la destruction des fausses religions ? Ce sera le moment de révéler ce que nous avons vraiment dans le cœur. Il ne faut pas s’attendre à ce que l’interruption, le répit, qui se produira durant la grande tribulation donne lieu à un afflux de nouveaux croyants. Par contre, elle offrira à tous les vrais croyants la possibilité de prouver leur amour pour Jéhovah et de soutenir les frères du Christ. Bien que nous ne connaissions pas dans le détail tout ce qui se produira durant cette période d’épreuve, attendons-nous à devoir faire des sacrifices. Pour rester en vie, les chrétiens du Ier siècle ont dû abandonner leurs biens et endurer des privations. Serons-nous disposés à subir des pertes matérielles pour rester fidèles ? Serons-nous prêts à faire tout ce qu’il faudra pour prouver notre fidélité à Jéhovah ? Songe un peu : Comme le prophète Daniel en son temps, nous serons les seuls, en ces jours-là, à continuer d’adorer Dieu, coûte que coûte. Ce ne sera pas le moment de prêcher la « bonne nouvelle du royaume ». Ce temps-là sera révolu. L’époque de « la fin » sera arrivée. Les serviteurs de Dieu proclameront sans aucun doute un message de jugement percutant. Celui-ci pourrait bien comporter une déclaration annonçant que la fin complète du monde de Satan est imminente. La Bible compare ce message à une grêle. On lit : « Une grande grêle, dont chaque grêlon pesait environ un talent, est descendue du ciel sur les hommes, et les hommes ont blasphémé Dieu à cause de la plaie de la grêle, parce que grande était sa plaie, extraordinairement » (Rév. 16:21).  TG2015 15/7 p16 Quelles autres perles spirituelles as-tu découvertes dans la lecture biblique de cette semaine ? Rév.13:1-4, 18. “ Une bête sauvage ” symbolisant les gouvernements humains monte “ de la mer ”, c’est-à-dire des masses agitées de l’humanité. Cette bête, que Satan a créée et dotée de pouvoir, porte le nombre 666, ce qui souligne son degré élevé d’imperfection. Sachant ce que représente cette bête, nous ne la suivons pas avec admiration ni ne l’adorons, contrairement à ce que font les humains en général. – TG2009  15/2 p4 Rév.13:8 — Qu’est-ce que “ le rouleau de vie de l’Agneau ” ? Il s’agit d’un rouleau symbolique où ne sont inscrits que les noms de ceux qui sont appelés à régner avec Jésus Christ dans son Royaume céleste, y compris les noms des chrétiens oints qui sont encore sur la terre. Les premiers noms qui y ont été inscrits l’ont été à la Pentecôte de l’an 33. Par la suite, un nombre sans cesse croissant de noms y a été ajouté. Depuis 1918, l’œuvre consistant à sceller le reste des 144 000 héritiers du Royaume est entrée dans sa phase finale. Bientôt, tous auront leur nom écrit de façon indélébile dans le rouleau de vie de l’Agneau.– TG2009  15/2 p3 Adorer la “ bête sauvage ” et son “ image ”, leur rendre hommage ou s’incliner devant elles revient à les servir, car leurs adorateurs s’identifient à des partisans de “ la bête sauvage ” et de son “ image ” par une marque sur la main (avec laquelle on sert) ou sur le front (visible de tous). Puisque c’est le Diable qui donne à la bête sauvage son pouvoir, adorer la bête sauvage signifie en réalité adorer ou servir le Diable. — Ré 13:4, 15-17 - it-1 p574 13:11-13 — En quel sens la bête sauvage à deux cornes agit-elle comme un dragon et fait-elle descendre du feu du ciel ? Le fait que la bête sauvage à deux cornes, identifiée à la Puissance mondiale anglo-américaine, parle comme un dragon signifie qu’elle recourt aux menaces, aux pressions et à la violence pour forcer les gens à accepter son type de domination. Elle fait descendre du feu du ciel en ce sens qu’elle s’attribue le rôle d’un prophète en prétendant qu’elle a vaincu les forces du mal au cours des deux guerres mondiales du XXe siècle et qu’elle l’a emporté sur le communisme. – TG2009  15/2 La virginité spirituelle. Tout comme le grand prêtre en Israël ne pouvait épouser qu’une vierge, de même le Grand Prêtre souverain, Jésus Christ, ne peut avoir au ciel qu’une “ vierge ” pour “ épouse ” spirituelle. L’épouse de Christ se compose de 144 000 personnes ointes de l’esprit, qui, individuellement, préservent leur ‘ virginité ’ en se tenant séparées du monde et en se gardant pures sur les plans moral et doctrinal. — Ré 14:1, 4 – it-1 p1153 En raison de toute la propagande satanique faite dans le monde, les paroles que Jean met maintenant par écrit sont vraiment appropriées : “ Écoute ! Je viens comme un voleur. Heureux celui qui reste éveillé et garde ses vêtements de dessus, pour qu’il ne marche pas nu et qu’on regarde sa honte. ” (Révélation 16:15). Qui vient “ comme un voleur ” ? Jésus lui-même, qui arrive à une heure non précisée en qualité d’Exécuteur au service de Jéhovah. Lorsqu’il était encore sur la terre, Jésus a également comparé sa venue à celle d’un voleur, en disant : “ Veillez donc, parce que vous ne savez pas quel jour votre Seigneur vient. Voilà pourquoi, vous aussi, montrez-vous prêts, car c’est à une heure que vous ne pensez pas que le Fils de l’homme vient. ” (Matthieu 24:42, 44 ; Luc 12:37, 40). Faisant écho à cet avertissement, l’apôtre Paul a dit : “ Le jour de Jéhovah vient exactement comme un voleur dans la nuit. Quand ils diront : ‘ Paix et sécurité ! ’ alors une destruction subite sera sur eux à l’instant même. ” “ Paix et sécurité ! ” : toute proclamation de ce genre est trompeuse ; elle émane de Satan. – re chap32 §27 En Révélation 16:15, Jésus nous avertit qu’une chose similaire peut arriver de nos jours. Les prêtres et les Lévites préfiguraient les frères oints de Jésus. Mais, par extension, la mise en garde de Jésus concerne aussi la grande foule. Les vêtements de dessus en question identifient ceux qui les portent à des chrétiens Témoins de Jéhovah. S’ils laissaient les pressions que le monde de Satan exerce sur eux les faire sombrer dans le sommeil, ou l’inactivité, ils perdraient probablement ces vêtements de dessus ; en d’autres termes, ils cesseraient d’être identifiés à des chrétiens purs. Cette situation les couvrirait de honte. Ils risqueraient d’aller à un échec complet. - re chap32 §30 “ Et elles [les paroles inspirées par les démons] les ont rassemblés [les rois ou dirigeants humains] au lieu qu’on appelle en hébreu Armaguédon. ” (Révélation 16:16). Ce nom n’apparaît qu’une seule fois dans la Bible, mais il a enflammé l’imagination des hommes. Les dirigeants du monde mettent les hommes en garde contre l’éventualité d’un Armaguédon nucléaire. Le terme Armaguédon étant également associé à la ville antique de Meguiddo, qui fut le théâtre de nombreuses batailles décisives aux temps bibliques, des chefs religieux en ont déduit que la guerre ultime qui sera livrée sur la terre aura lieu dans cette petite région du globe. Ils sont en cela fort éloignés de la vérité. Ce nom ne désigne toutefois pas un lieu réel, mais représente la situation dans laquelle toutes les nations en opposition avec Jéhovah Dieu sont rassemblées et seront finalement détruites par lui. Il s’agit d’une situation mondiale - re chap32 §31,32
    • Moving forward, 7:25 He will speak words against the Most High, and he will continually harass the holy ones of the Supreme One. He will intend to change times and law, and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time. 26 But the Court sat, and they took away his rulership,* in order to annihilate him and to destroy him completely. 27 “‘And the kingdom and the rulership and the grandeur of the kingdoms under all the heavens were given to the people who are the holy ones of the Supreme One. Their kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all rulerships will serve and obey them.’28 “This is the end of the matter. As for me, Daniel, my thoughts alarmed me greatly, so that I turned pale; but I kept the matter in my own heart.” I have read the book Pay Attention to Daniel Prophesy many times. I agree with the description of events of Daniel 7. Jehovah has let the world alone,that all events are mans mistakes. I see this as the first physical act against Satan's world? As I read 7:25,26,27 it appears an event happens 3-1/2 times or 3-1/2 years before the entire Kingdom takes possession of the Earth at Armageddon.   Is this a fulfillment after the persecution of the GB after 1914 as written in the Daniel book of chapter 9?
    • Are you for real? You know nothing about me.....and the tests I had to face....  But I know the word of God and I have paid my dues.  My daughter had cancer and had surgery  which lasted the entire day..... without blood and she was 8 and half months old.  .... If she had taken blood she would not have survived.  It is what the doctors and this world don't tell you that is important!  I can share all the info I learnt  with you to prove to you that the bible is absolutely right when it cautions us to abstain from blood. .... if you are interested I can inform you. It takes the liver 30 days to break down foreign blood in the system..... if the person is too weak they get anaphalactic shock from the blood transfusion - which is never given as the reason for death on the death certificate. ..... always complications from surgery. Life is important to me ..... but everlasting life is more important. 
    • Are you honest? I have just seen you bashing JWs, never acknowledging anything good about them.   You have given me labels many times in your so-called bias - search for something which can only be called truth if it confirms to your personal viewpoint.  How unrealistic this expectation in a wicked world...... Do you believe the bible?   Yes or No ?   God himself chose king Saul for his humility and then saul turned aside and became unapproved.... to the extent that he visited the witch if Endor calling up the dead.   Jesus chose Jude himself after praying with holy spirit and jude later became  wicked (practicing theft, deceit) and eventually betrayed him.....  We can try to obtain a clean congregation but there will always be individuals who can turn wicked and create problems until someone speaks up and evidence is obtained.   And if the government cannot get a conviction ?  Then we only have rumours to go on..... which is unloving if there is no proof.  The bible itself says we must not defame others.  It is also a grave offence.  This is why it is hard to obtain perfection. Do we err on the side of obtaining justice or mercy...... because both these attributes are important.
    • We had a joke in SA - the light green people must please sit in the back of the bus...... In South Africa we use the term 'coloured' in different way than USA.   Historically we had a group of people (since inception of SA 370 years ago) who were a mix between black and white and they spoke the European language : Dutch.  So they were officially not black and not white.  To the whites they were never white enough and for the black people not black enough. 
    • Although the "me too" movement has brought the plight  of individuals to the fore I think it is a temporary phenomena.  We will see a few institutions sued for money due to past  negligence (as JWs) to provide a public token of supposed caring and a "show" of justice but the  true and horrific extent of child trafficking and sex abuse will not be exposed.  It is a world- wide network which, I suspect, brings in profits comparable to, or more than drugs,  and is active also amongst the depraved elite, including CIA, judges, princes etc. It will escalate as young children are now groomed by the new UN school curriculim. Child sex abuse is covered up by law enforcement and government institutions we trust because rich and important people are involved.  Here is another general  comment: satan's world will soon not be hidden any longer. It will no longer operate in the shadows. Seriously wicked things will go on in full view of the public as this way of thinking infiltrates all aspects if thinking in society..... like LGBT it will be tolerated.  Mankind is sinking lower and lower in a depraved mental state.
    • OCD is in and of itself not NECESSARILY a bad thing. ...and not NECESSARILY a disorder. It just seems that way to other people who have to endure it .... when they are not interested in that particular application.
