  1. This is in response to Jack Ryan's thread entitled, "...the angel of Jehovah camps all around those fearing him" https://www.theworldnewsmedia.org/topic/57218-“’the-angel-of-jehovah-camps-all-around-those-fearing-him’/ It concerns the leaked Attendant Training Videos, of which I saw only a condensed review of them. The speaker of the training video remarks:" “Well, with a warm smile, you have the privilege to welcome all to a place of worship where the atmosphere is like a spiritual oasis in a parched land, and by taking the initiative to offer a helping hand you can be like those streams of cool water that bring refreshment to all. And by promoting a safe and peaceful environment you can provide a place of concealment for all f our invited guests…It’s as if our great host Jehovah has extended his welcoming arms by means of you, so that everyone in attendance will feel like they have entered a house that is safe and secure. Remember, too, you will not be working alone in behalf of God’s people. Psalm 34:7 assures us, the angel of Jehovah camps all around those fearing him, so by means of his powerful angels, Jehovah can shield his faithful worshipers from harm, “IF IT BE HIS WILL”. Jack Ryan's comment: “It appears that it wasn’t/isn’t Jehovah’s will to protect children from being sexually abused within His own congregations. It appears that these powerful angels are shielding no one, if He isn’t protecting these most vulnerable amongst us. Frankly, it appears that it isn’t Jehovah’s will to protect His people in general.” “IF IT BE HIS WILL” Temperamental god, this “Jehovah”. Would a God of love be so fickle? “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’” Ps 91:1,2 The true God, YHWH, that I am coming to know keeps His promises toward His faithful ones. If this speaker has doubts and feels the need to add an addendum to Ps 34:7, he is fully aware of the organization’s risky status in Russia and other countries, or he is reflecting on the rampant child abuse situation that the Watchtower unashamedly refuses to concretely address. Jer 8:11,12; Eph 5:11 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Jer+8%3A11%2C12%3B+Eph+5%3A11&version=NKJV The video is playing out a “showy display” of compassion and love before the masses, outweighing the hidden lack of it, which results from transgressing God’s requirements. Eph 5:6,8,9 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Eph+5%3A6%2C8%2C9&version=NKJV To be found “faithful” with the Father, we submit to His discipline and refinement. We prove ourselves worthy of His protection by following Christ’s Words. Zech 13:9; Mal 3:2-4; Heb 12:6 It is not God’s will that we rely on a corrupt organization for protection. Ps 26:4,5 It is His will that we rely on Him and His Son. Joel 2:12,13; Isa 48:17,18 Nowhere in the scriptures are we told to turn to an earthly image – a god of fortress for protection during the end times. (1 Sam 7:3) Dan 11:38,39; Rev 13:1,5-8 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Zech+13%3A9%3B+Mal+3%3A2-4%3B+Heb+12%3A6%3BPs+26%3A4%2C5%3B++Joel+2%3A12%2C13%3B+Isa+48%3A17%2C18%3B+1+Sam+7%3A3%3B+Dan+11%3A38%2C39%3B+Rev+13%3A1%2C5-8++&version=NKJV On the contrary, we are told to worship in spirit and truth and to seek out those Christ sends, at the same time to be on the lookout for false prophets. John 4:24;3:8; 16:13,14; Matt 23:34; John 13:20; Acts 17:24; Heb 9:11; Matt 7:15-20 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+4%3A24%3B3%3A8%3B+16%3A13%2C14%3B+Matt+23%3A34%3B+John+13%3A20%3B+Acts+17%3A24%3B+Heb+9%3A11%3B+Matt+7%3A15-20&version=NKJV Is “Jehovah’s CHARIOT” leading the sheep to truly love one another? All evidence of its past and present failings to protect the flock, point to “no”. Mark 12:29-31; Matt 22:40; John 15:9-14; Rom 13:8-10 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark+12%3A29-31%3B+Matt+22%3A40%3B+John+15%3A9-14%3B+Rom+13%3A8-10&version=NKJV Please, do not sweep the obvious under the carpet, JWs! “…Love does NO HARM to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.” Rom 13:10 The trouble begins within the internal mechanism of the organization; the ruling elders, both the leaders and their henchmen; therein, is the source of all suffering, seen and unseen, happening within the Watchtower. Rev 8:10,11; Amos 5:7; Rev 9:1-4; Joel 2:1-10 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Rev+8%3A10%2C11%3B+Amos+5%3A7%3B+Rev+9%3A1-4%3B+Joel+2%3A1-10++&version=NKJV Watchtower 13/1/15 pg 27-31 “Rather than making rigid rules for the congregation, ELDERS rely on Scriptural principles and direction from Jehovah’s organization. After all, present-day elders are not the masters over their brothers’ faith. —1 Pet. 5:2, 3 In reality, scriptural principles are basically ignored, while direction from the organization dictates every working aspect of the Watchtower. We have proof of this with the leaders’ latest resolve to barely bend their rigid rules with child molestation cases. Isa 10:1,2 They are WITHOUT A DOUBT cruel masters over the faith of each JW through their restrictive decrees that conflict with the ordinances of the true God, founded on love and righteousness. Isa 29:13;Hab 1:4; 2 Cor 11:4,20;Col 2:20-22; Ps 89:14-17https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isa+10%3A1%2C2%3B+Isa+29%3A13%3BHab+1%3A4%3B+2+Cor+11%3A4%2C20%3BCol+2%3A20-22%3B+Ps+89%3A14-17+&version=NKJV As a result, it is absolutely clear the organization does not follow God’s laws outlined by Christ and verified by scripture. Remembering that the governing body admit they are NOT INSPIRED by God’s Holy Spirit, (Wt 2017/2) Anthony Morris recently stated that the “theocratic organization” receives its decisions or “decrees” from God. Doesn’t it make you question the source of these decrees since God’s Holy Spirit does not “inspire” the governing body? Quote: “When that direction comes out to Branch committee members, or when it comes out to the congregations; IF you want Jehovah’s blessing ON YOU as an individual or family, certainly as an ELDER or congregation, it’d be best to ask Jehovah to help you understand it, BUT OBEY THE DECISION.” (Joel 2:7)https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Joel+2%3A7&version=NKJV Deut 4:2: “You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.” John 14:15 “If you love me, keep my commandments.” One of those long held unscriptural decrees is for the elders to stand/rule over the authentic priesthood of God and their companions, while charging them as conspirators for accepting Christ’s lead above the organizational format, resulting in a judgment of “death” by disfellowshipping. Ezek 44:6-9; 1 Pet 2:5,9; 1 Cor 3:16,17; Matt 24:15; 2 Thess 2:3,4;Rev 13:5-7,11,12,15; 1 John 3:11,12 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ezek+44%3A6-9%3B+1+Pet+2%3A5%2C9%3B+1+Cor+3%3A16%2C17%3B+Matt+24%3A15%3B+2+Thess+2%3A3%2C4%3BRev+13%3A5-7%2C11%2C12%2C15%3B+1+John+3%3A11%2C12&version=NKJV God, who does not change His mind unlike “Jehovah’s organization”, PROMISES to be our shield and strength, IF we submit and follow HIS decrees through Christ, the head of the anointed Body. Deut 33:29; 2 Sam 22:31; Nahum 1:7 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deut+33%3A29%3B+2+Sam+22%3A31%3B+Nahum+1%3A7+&version=NKJV The anointed priesthood of God has a purpose – to offer sacrifices of praise and thanksgiving, to teach God’s laws written on their heart, admonish, direct, and heal, God’s sheep. Isa 43:21; 1 Pet 2:9; Rom 2:13,15; Heb 13:15; Rev 7:10; Isa 44:23; Ezek 44:23; Jer 23:22; Mal 2:7; Rom 8:19-22; Rev 22:1,2 Yet, they have been restrained by a Wicked Slave/Harlot/Wormwood/false prophet and its delegated army from doing so, creating within the Watchtower, a spiritually “parched land”, void of the knowledge of God’s ordinances. (Yes, all these characteristic titles are prophetically fulfilled by the governing body) Zeph 3:4; Amos 8:11; Joel 1:5-7; Rev 8:8 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isa+43%3A21%3B+1+Pet+2%3A9%3B+Rom+2%3A13%2C15%3B+Heb+13%3A15%3B+Rev+7%3A10%3B+Isa+44%3A23%3B+Ezek+44%3A23%3B+Jer+23%3A22%3B+Mal+2%3A7%3B+Rom+8%3A19-22%3B+Rev+22%3A1%2C2%3B++.++Zeph+3%3A4%3B+Amos+8%3A11%3B+Joel+1%3A5-7%3B+Rev+8%3A8&version=NKJV Can you imagine how God and Christ view appointed Temple priesthood submitting to the rules of men and their handbook; and not to Christ and the laws written on their heart? Ezek 8:5,6 Those who are “ambassadors of Christ” are to work as one anointed Body, being of the vine of Christ, which allows Holy Spirit to feed and direct the Body through all of its members. John 15:5-8; 1 Cor 12:20,25,26 Paul spoke of it as a “fearful responsibility” to carry the message of reconciliation. 2 Cor 5:11,19,20 (NLT) https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ezek+8%3A5%2C6%3B+John+15%3A5-8%3B+1+Cor+12%3A20%2C25%2C26%3B+2+Cor+5%3A11%2C19%2C20++&version=NKJV Are the unanointed elders who “represent the royal priesthood”, the true “ambassadors” or representatives of Christ? In the first century, would Christ have condoned others to replace the apostles who are the foundations stones of his Temple Body? 1 Cor 3:10,11 Neither should men muscle aside the “living stones” of God’s Temple from performing their duties as Christ’s ambassadors. Ezek 34:20-23; Eph 2:20-22; John21:17; Luke12:42; Matt.5:14-15; Rev.1:20; Mal.2:7; Rev.22:6; John13:20 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ezek+34%3A20-23%3B+Eph+2%3A20-22%3B+John21%3A17%3B+Luke12%3A42%3B+Matt.5%3A14-15%3B+Rev.1%3A20%3B+Mal.2%3A7%3B+Rev.22%3A6%3B+John13%3A20+&version=NKJV Can you imagine God’s disgust, as His priests continue to allow a Harlot/false prophet “decree” that they remain apart from one another, not seek one another out, not “study the Bible together”, passively swallowing such UNSCRIPTURAL lies, and allow themselves to be trampled down by them? Matt 24:15; 2 Thess 2:3,4,9-12; Rev 11:1-3; Joel 1:4,5; Eph 5:14-20 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matt+24%3A15%3B+2+Thess+2%3A3%2C4%2C9-12%3B+Rev+11%3A1-3%3B+Joel+1%3A4%2C5%3B+Eph+5%3A14-20&version=NKJV In each instance when God’s people in the past disregarded His ordinances, He “sent”, or allowed, discipline to fall on them. (Deut 8:1-6; Heb 12:11) Usually, it was in the form of an enemy’s stronghold. The “rod” of discipline this time, is the organization; specifically, the very army of elders who rule over them. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deut+8%3A1-6%3B+Heb+12%3A11&version=NKJV The very army that chooses to ignore the plight of the helpless ones. Ps 89:30-32; Rev 3:19; Rev 9:1-11 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ps+89%3A30-32%3B+Rev+3%3A19%3B+Rev+9%3A1-11&version=NKJV Joel 1:4 describes them as locust in all historic and individual stages of type and development. KJV: That which the palmerworm hath left --- “a creeping locust without wings”-“to devour”… …hath the locust eaten --- a locust “swarm”… …and that which the locust hath left … …hath the cankerworm eaten --- “a devourer; specifically, the young locust”… …and that which the cankerworm hath left… …hath the caterpiller eaten --- “a locust not yet winged” “the ravager” Now, picture the locust swarm “released” by the Harlot/Wormwood to come against the anointed priesthood – against the Temple of God: “Many Christian men apply that encouragement and make spiritual progress to qualify for privileges in the congregation. The result is that God’s people are blessed with TENS OF THOUSANDS of capable elders and ministerial servants. But because of the increase seen in the congregations, there is a need for more brothers to reach out.” Wt 14/9/15 FROM PEARL DOXSEY’S ARTICLE: “THE GREAT TRIBULATION – WHAT AND WHY”: “The Great Tribulation is a spiritual assault by Satan upon the remnant, (Rev.12:17; 20:7-10; 16:13-16; 1Tim.4:1; Luke 21:20-22 t through the greatest Army that has ever existed [Rev.13:1,4; 11:2; 9:7,10; Luke22:31; 21:20-22,24; Mark13:14 -(Num.18:7);Matt.24:15-16] It has a deceptive priestly - princely veneer (Jer.7:4,8; Eze.44:6-9; Rev.9:7; Nahum 3:17) of divine INSPIRATION*** and approval,through endorsement by the false prophet's lying spirit, NOT by God's spirit! (Rev.13:14,15; 19:20) ("Disgusting Thing") (Rev.2:2;2Cor.11:13-15; 2Tim.3:5,13; Matt.7:15; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:14,13,15; 19:20; Matt.24:24,25; Rev.13:15--***"breath" -John20:22). (*** False prophet produces a counterfeit of "God's SPIRIT - DIRECTED Organization") [The AUTHENTIC Temple of God's spirit, is His Chosen, anointed priesthood (1Cor.3:16; 2Cor.6:16; 1Pet.2:10,9,5; Eph.2:20-22)] God sends / allows this abomination, to assault and discipline His people (Isa.42:24; Dan.9:12; Joel 2:25 C; Joel 2:11; Mal.3:2;Zech.13:8-9; Eze.6:9-10; 14:22-23; Joel 3:17) (Zech.9:3; Rev.8:7; 9:18; Job 23:10), because in the time of the end, GOD’S PEOPLE are tolerating, subjecting themselves to, and participating in IDOLIZING, the collective "Image" of that very Army (Rev.13:14-15,7-8; 2:20; Matt.24:24-25; Luke 21:24; Rev.14:12). THAT IS WHY THEY ARE BEING TRAMPLED BY IT” (Ec.10:7; Prov.25:26; 2Cor.11:4,20; Matt.5:13; Luke 21:24,22; Rev.11:2;13:10,7 Isa.51:23; 2Cor.11:20,4,3,2; Mal.3:2-3; Zech.13:9; Rev.2:5; 3:3). The love which results in righteous acts, simply does not exist in the organization since the climate of lawlessness has erased true justice. Deut 6:24,25 For those anointed who reject the GB that “substitutes” for Christ (NWT 2 Cor 5:20) ,turning instead to Jesus Christ to lead them directly; they are freed from the crushing weight of lawlessness – “ the disgusting thing standing in the holy place” – the elder body “standing” in/over the “living stones” of the Temple of God. 2Chron.13:9; 2Thess.2:4; Isa 43:10; 1 Pet 2:5,9; 1 Cor 3:16,17; Eph 2:20-22 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deut++6%3A24%2C25%3B+2Chron.13%3A9%3B+2Thess.2%3A4%3B+Isa+43%3A10%3B+1+Pet+2%3A5%2C9%3B+1+Cor+3%3A16%2C17%3B+Eph+2%3A20-22++&version=NKJV “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with LAWLESSNESS? And what communion has light with darkness? 15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement has the TEMPLE OF GOD with idols? For youare the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.” 17 Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.” 18 “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the Lord Almighty.” 2 Cor 6:14-18 We are reminded during this time period, of “Who is like God”, since “Jehovah’s organization” with all its “temple” sublets, has seduced God’s people into idolatry and the transgression of God’s laws fulfilled in Christ. Deut 4:23,24; Isa 40:25; Dan 12:1; Rev 12:7-9; Rev 13:4; Gal 5:14 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deut+4%3A23%2C24%3B+Isa+40%3A25%3B+Dan+12%3A1%3B+Rev+12%3A7-9%3B+Rev+13%3A4%3B+Gal+5%3A14+&version=NKJV Within Watchtower’s walls, instead of an angel of God camping all around those fearing Him, another angel – Belial - has surrounded the camp of holy ones, utilizing a Harlot/false prophet and the organization she so presently loves, to keep them captivated and inebriated on wormwood, and a false sense of peace and security. Matt 25:5; 22:8; Rev 18:3; 1 Cor 6:15; Jer 51:7; 1 Thess 5:3; Rev 20:9 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matt+25%3A5%3B+22%3A8%3B+Rev+18%3A3%3B+1+Cor+6%3A15%3B+Jer+51%3A7%3B+1+Thess+5%3A3%3B+Rev+20%3A9++&version=NKJV 13 “If you carefully obey my commands I am giving you today, to love the Lord your God and worship Him with all your heart and all your soul, 14 I will provide rain for your land in the proper time, the autumn and spring rains, and you will harvest your grain, new wine, and fresh oil. 15 I will provide grass in your fields for your livestock. You will eat and be satisfied. 16 Be careful that you are not enticed to turn aside, serve, and bow in worship to other gods. 17 Then the Lord’s anger will burn against you. He will shut the sky, and there will be no rain; the land will not yield its produce, and you will perish quickly from the good land the Lord is giving you. 18 “Imprint these words of mine on your hearts and minds, bind them as a sign on your hands, and let them be a symbol on your foreheads. 19 Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 20 Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates, 21 so that as long as the heavens are above the earth, your days and those of your children may be many in the land the Lord swore to give your fathers. 22 For if you carefully observe every one of these commands I am giving you to follow—to love the Lord your God, walk in all his ways, and remain faithful to him— 23 the Lord will drive out all these nations before you, and you will drive out nations greater and stronger than you are. 24 Every place the sole of your foot treads will be yours. Your territory will extend from the wilderness to Lebanon and from the Euphrates River to the Mediterranean Sea. 25 No one will be able to stand against you; the Lord your God will put fear and dread of you in all the land where you set foot, as he has promised you. 26 “Look, today I set before you a blessing and a curse: 27 there will be a blessing, if you obey the commands of the Lord your God I am giving you today, 28 and a curse, if you do not obey the commands of the Lord your God and you turn aside from the path I command you today by following other gods you have not known.

    Five-Year old Raped by Jehovah's Witness

    Assuming that it is true that Lett lies…and there are examples. What bothers you more, that I stand up to your leaders, exposing them for who they are, or the child abuse coverup? Do you love your leaders more than righteous acts, which Lett who had the power to perform more than just offering empty words, didn’t do; and followed up with a lie thirteen years later? Ps 5:9 JWI, your words are gentle, but if this man can be excused for saying or doing the wrong thing, how is it that the anointed “brothers” of his, who approach the elders about such issues – using scripture – and are very sure of their belief, are not excused by it, but reprimanded and face disfellowshipping? Matt 24:48-51 explains this. He replied: “Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not follow them.” Luke 21:8 There is only one translation that I have found for 2 Cor 5:20, that throws in the word “substitute” – not just once, but twice – the NWT. “Therefore, we are ambassadors substituting for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us. As substitutes for Christ, we beg: “Become reconciled to God.” KJV – “Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.” Among the anointed ones that I know, none have expected obedience to themselves. The governing body must be obeyed first and foremost over Christ. The scriptures don’t say a “faithful and discreet slave” should be obeyed. What does that tell you? They are the false “christs”, the apostates, and even if it does not appear so on the surface, liars. Prov 26:23-25 Matt 24:24 - “For there shall arise false Christs, (“one who falsely lays claim to the name and office of the Messiah”) and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect (chosen).” The governing body lineage, are both false “Christs” and false prophets. What should be his first love? Matt 22:37-40

The religion's leaders call such accounts 'false stories'" http://www.philly.com/philly/news/jehovahs-witnesses-child-sex-abuse-stephen-lett-chessa-manion-20180620.html "Often times, the terms compulsive liar and pathological liar are used interchangeably. However, in reality, both are different. Although, both have this habit of lying about every small or big thing, yet their motives behind lying are not the same. Nor do they pose the same kind of threat to the people around them. Compulsive Liar A compulsive liar is a person who will lie, no matter what. It has become a habit with him/her to lie about everything and he/she has no control over it. The thing with people who have compulsive lying disorder is that they lie because they find telling the truth very uncomfortable. So, to avoid themselves from this discomfort, they resort to lying. Pathological Liar A pathological liar is someone who lies to get his way. They are manipulative, crafty, and usually have a goal in mind when they lie. They have no concern for the feelings of others, even of those people who are close to them. Stephen Lett is a very sick man. He suffers from both.

    Matthew 24:34 "this generation"

    Why is the guy in the lower right corner staring at the artist, or...staring at you!
  5. "Is it okay to question the authority of the Governing Body?" According to Christ, yes. “Now there was also a dispute among them, as to which of them should be considered the greatest. 25 And He said to them, “The kings (leaders of the people…”through the notion of a foundation of power”) of the Gentiles (or, the non anointed elders of the flock of whom by far, are not anointed, or "Gentiles") exercise lordship over them, (the authority given to the elders) and those who exercise authority over them (over the elders) are called ‘benefactors.’ (GB) (a title of honour, conferred on such as had done their country service, and upon princes, equivalent to Soter, Pater Patriae – “Father of his country”) 26 But not so among you; ( referring to the disciples who became anointed apostles of Christ. “But not so among”… the anointed Body of Christ.) on the contrary, he who is greatest among you, let him be as the younger, and he who governs as he who serves. 27 For who is greater, he who sits at the table, or he who serves? Is it not he who sits at the table? Yet I am among you as the One who serves.” In those few scriptures, we have the organizational setup – a GB/Benefactor who directs the elder body/”kings”, who rule over the sheep/”Gentiles”. Where does the faithful and discreet slave come in? According to Jesus, he isn’t sitting at the table where the GB has seated themselves. If he has taken that seat, he is comparable to the wicked slave. Matt 24:48-51 And, since the GB do sit at the table, expecting total obedience of the flock to their elder body, they have placed themselves above Christ. There, is scriptural reason to question, and reject, their authority. “You will be brought before governors and kings (judicial committee) for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. 19 But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak; 20 for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you. 21 “Now brother will deliver up brother to death (disfellowshipping – a spiritual “death”), and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. 22 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved. Matt 10:18-22 “And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life.” Matt 19:29

    GB MEMBER GEOFFREY JACKSON IN FRANCE

    "For eight years I have been declaring God's message.... that the last harlot is going to fall... the governing body of "Jehovah's Witnesses"... that "she" will be turned on by her own organization, just as Revelation's prophecy, symbolically depicted. When I first declared that message, I was scoffed by comments like "That's ridiculous", "That's impossible". "That could never happen", "Sheer nonsense". -- Yet I have persisted in the truthful interpretation of Revelation, in the hope that some might investigate the genuine meaning behind prophecy, act in wisdom, and flee God's condemnation of sharing in the harlot's sins. Now, eight years later, as we draw closer and closer to the fulfillment of prophecy... the stage is being set for that fulfillment, and all the details of the harlot's final circumstances, are progressively taking shape. Consequently, my voiced predictions about the GB, grow increasingly possible in the minds of the observant. --How many will benefit from hearing the prediction, and then from witnessing the harlot's demise? Will they finally listen to the whole message, before all of God's warnings, come to pass? I have seen with my own eyes, how many people are on the winepress line of destruction, because of being spiritually blind and deaf, disinterested in the prophecies of God and their application to our present-day circumstances. Of the few who may remember that I announced these events years in advance, while their fulfillment still seemed impossible... Will they grasp the reason for and purpose behind, the clarity of the trumpet blasts? Will they then turn to the God who announces the end from the beginning? Will they repent of their sleepy disregard? Will they accept the Lord of Truth, and repent of their rebelliousness and disrespect toward their heavenly Father? " Pearl Doxsey Joel3: "12 “Let the nations be wakened, and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; For there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations. 13 Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, go down; For the winepress is full, The vats overflow— For their wickedness is great.” 14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. 15 The sun and moon will grow dark, And the stars will diminish their brightness. 16 The Lord also will roar from Zion, And utter His voice from Jerusalem; The heavens and earth will shake; But the Lord will be a shelter for His people, And the strength of the children of Israel. 17 “So you shall know that I am the Lord your God, Dwelling in Zion My holy mountain. Then Jerusalem shall be holy, And no aliens shall ever pass through her again.” YHWH's Genuine Mountain - 4womaninthewilderness blogspot

    GB MEMBER GEOFFREY JACKSON IN FRANCE

    Pearl Doxsey's reply: 1Pet.3: "13 Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? 14 But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.” 15 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, 16 keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. 17 For it is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil." 1Pet.4: "13 But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. 14 If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. 15 If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. 16 However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. 17 For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 And, “If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?” 19 So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good." 1Pet.2: "12 Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us. 13 Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, 14 or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. 15 For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. 16 Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. 17 Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor. 18 Slaves, in reverent fear of God submit yourselves to your masters, not only to those who are good and considerate, but also to those who are harsh. 19 For it is commendable if someone bears up under the pain of unjust suffering because they are conscious of God. 20 But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God. 21 To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. 22 “He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.” 23 When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly."
  8. The following comment has been quoted on this forum, at least partially. Attached also is another report of Geoffrey Jackson’s statement made in France. Here is the individual’s comment, unedited: “This weekend in France there was the inauguration of a new Convention Hall. Since it was some "never before seen project" (because done by 3 countries together : France, Switzerland and Italy... wow what an achievement!) they had to do something special. So they Had Geoffrey Jackson giving talks and those being streamed to a lot of congregations. Lots of rank file were invited to the Convention Hall, the rest got to see it over TV. The weekend meeting was cancelled and we had two days of this 2-hour retransmissions. So the first day I missed (YAY). But on todays talk, I had a lot of headshaking moments. The usual brainwashing, guiltripping, submission talk, shun shun shun, etc etc. But then he said something I just wanted to scream at the screen... So he made an illustration. He made sure that everyone got the fact that it was an illustration, not an announcement (laughter in the audience, whats funny about it?). Then he said (I'm quoting him best I can remember, but you'll get the idea): "Imagine if next week I go back to US and you see in the news that the whole GB was arrested for no reason. How'd you react? Well, surely you'd say to your coworkers or neighbours: "Jesus warned us. They were arrested for no reason." You would feel bad for us but be proud because you are sure it's persecution from Satan and that we're innocent. Now that's not really possible because in the US because you can't arrest someone with no reason like in Russia. So imagine they would make up false accusations, with false witnesses and false testimonies and all the newspaper would talk about how the GB was arrested for stealing billions of $$ to their followers. How would you react when coworker talk about it? Be ashamed? Would you believe it? Well Satan will attack us using lies. Lying about our high morality. Maybe they will accuse us of covering child sexual abuser. Would you believe it? Surely we know those lies come from Satan." “Lying about our HIGH MORALITY”… On the surface, the reality of Watchtower’s child abuse has come to the attention of the world through the result of media exposure and victims speaking out. It is an atrocity, no matter where it thrives; but, if Jackson’s example is how they react to a civil crime that the organization is guilty of, can they be trusted guiding JWs in all spiritual matters? Truthfully, it is the aura of spiritual immorality that the organization exists in. Matt 24:11,12; 2 Tim 3:1-5 If God’s decrees, which are written on the hearts of the anointed ones were allowed to be followed, would hidden child molestation exist, and would Jackson’s deceitful plea for allegiance be necessary? Jer 31:33; Heb 10:16,17; Mal 2:7,8 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matt+24%3A11%2C12%3B+2+Tim+3%3A1-5%3B+Jer+31%3A33%3B+Heb+10%3A16%2C17%3B+Mal+2%3A7%2C8++&version=NASB Since a false priesthood stands in place of God’s chosen Temple priesthood, God’s every decree has been broken by the Watchtower. Ezek 44:6-9; Matt 24:15,16; Dan 8:11; 9:11; 2 Thess 2:3,4; Matt 22:37-39; James 2:8-10 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ezek+44%3A6-9%3B+Matt+24%3A15%2C16%3B+Dan+8%3A11%3B+9%3A11%3B+2+Thess+2%3A3%2C4%3B+Matt+22%3A37-39%3B+James+2%3A8-10&version=NASB “My son, pay attention to my wisdom; listen closely to my understanding 2 so that you may maintain discretion and your lips safeguard knowledge. 3 Though the lips of the forbidden (“estranged, immoral”) woman drip honey and her words are smoother than oil, 4 in the end she’s as bitter as wormwood and as sharp as a double-edged sword.” Prov 5:1-4 God’s ordinances, are compared to honey – Ps 19:7-11;119:102-104 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ps+19%3A7-11%3B119%3A102-104+++++&version=NASB Oil represents Holy Spirit in the scriptures and is associated with an anointing. Zech 4:12-14; Matt 25:1-4 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Zech+4%3A12-14%3B+Matt+25%3A1-4&version=NASB Proverbs is giving us a glimpse into Revelation and the Harlot/false prophet that authorizes “her” Beast/organization to come against God’s chosen ones. Rev 13:11-15,7 This combined fallen anointed “false prophet” appears to speak according to God’s decrees and as representatives of Christ. Luke 21:8; 2 Cor 5:20; 2 Cor 11:3,4 (Ps 81:10-16; 1 Cor 10:4) https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Rev+13%3A11-15%2C7%3BLuke+21%3A8%3B+2+Cor+5%3A20%3B+2+Cor+11%3A3%2C4%3B+Ps+81%3A10-16%3B+1+Cor+10%3A4+&version=NASB But “in the end she’s as bitter as wormwood”. Heb 12:15,16; Rev 8:10,11; 10:9-11 “She” has taken on the role of Christ, as a “double-edged sword”, judging as condemned through her teachings, those anointed who dare cross her path with Truth in Christ. 1 John 3:10-12; Rev 13:11,15 (Heb 4:12; Rev 1:16; 2:12; Hos 6:5) https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Heb+12%3A15%2C16%3B+Rev+8%3A10%2C11%3B+10%3A9-11%3B+1+John+3%3A10-12%3B+Rev+13%3A11%2C15%3B+Heb+4%3A12%3B+Rev+1%3A16%3B+2%3A12%3B+Hos+6%3A5&version=NASB When God’s people abandon their covenant promise with God, forsaking His ordinances, it is a spiritual prostitution. G. Jackson has revealed the true plan behind Satan’s scheme; that is, to “fleece” the flock and attack God’s anointed and companions with the Harlot’s lies. Matt 7:15-20; Rev 16:13,14 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matt+7%3A15-20%3B+Rev+16%3A13%2C14&version=NASB From Pearl Doxsey’s article “Love Your Enemies” (4womaninthewilderness) “Who are our enemies? They are those who hate us (Luke1:71; 6:27)… those who intimidate, oppose, mislead, and threaten us, into subjection to them (Luke 1:74; Rev.13:15,7; 2Thess.2:3-4; 1Cor.3:16;Eze.44:6-9; Matt.24:15-16) They oppress, restrain/"hold back", tear down, and seek to destroy our power, and our service to God (2Thess.2:6,8; Hab.1:4;Luke 19:43; 21:24,20; Rev.20:9; Matt.24:24-25; 1John2:26; 3:7; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13-16; 13:11,15; 2:20; 19:20) (Dan.7:25;8:11-12; 11:36; 12:7; Rev.13:7,10). They successfully bring about the greatest tribulation ever to befall God's chosen people. Those who oppose, set their minds on the "earthly" things of this world (Col.3:2; James 3:15-16; 1John 2:15-16; James 4:4;Eph.2:2; 6:12; 2Cor.12:20; Rom.2:8; Mark 10:42-44; James 1:27; Matt.6:19; Luke 12:19-20; Rev.3:17-18; 1Cor.4:6-8,9-14;Mark 4:18-19). A disposition of greed overwhelms them, and they lose their spiritual senses, evidenced by their vile conduct (2Pet.2:3;Phil.3:18-19; Isa.56:11; Jer.6:13; Hosea 4:8; Micah 7:3; James 3:16; Hab.2:4; Ps.49:12-14; Eph.4:19-20). They fight against the divine authority and power, which we fear and honor (2Cor.5:11; Luke19:27; Rev.17:14). This is because they are backed by our greatest enemy, the Devil (1Pet.5:8; Eph.2:2; Rev.13:4; Prov.15:27; Matt.4:8-9; Rev.9:1,11;Isa.33:1) (Matt.13:25,39). " Hosea prophesied to the adulterous Israel before its downfall. The nation’s many crimes festered under its idolatrous worship. Hos 4:1-3 God’s “case”, was against its priests for ignoring His ordinances. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Hos+4%3A1-3&version=NASB “But let no one dispute; let no one argue, for my case is against you priests. 5 You will stumble by day; the prophet will also stumble with you by night. And I will destroy your mother. 6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will reject you from serving as my priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your sons.” The more they multiplied, the more they sinned against me. I will change their honor into disgrace. 8 They feed on the sin of my people; they have an appetite for their iniquity. 9 The same judgment will happen to both people and priests. I will punish them for their ways and repay them for their deeds." Hos 4:4-9 Surely, JWs, it must be logically clear to you that if the Watchtower was following God’s decrees, no victim of unfair, unrighteous treatment would exist in the organization. Yet, they have and do exist, since its leaders have left their covenant with God and have forsaken their spiritual “virginity” in Truth. They have adopted as their new “mother” covenant promise, “Babylon the Great”. Isa 28:15; Rev 17:1-6 As Pearl brought out above, this has caused loss of all spiritual sense; and like Israel of old, spiritual “Israel” is now steeped in idolatry and sin, as they determinedly carry on upholding their “golden calf” – the abhorrent idolatrous “chariot” called “Jehovah’s organization”. Exod 32:3,4,7,8,23,24 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isa+28%3A15%3B+Rev+17%3A1-6%3B++Exod+32%3A3%2C4%2C7%2C8%2C23%2C24&version=NASB As long as JWs cling to the organization, no matter what their opinion is of its leaders, they also commit spiritual idolatry. Please, think deeply on this, JWs! “The integrity of the upright will guide them, But the crookedness of the treacherous will destroy them.” Prov 11:3 Put the horn to your mouth! One like an eagle comes against the house of the Lord, because they transgress my covenant and rebel against my law. 2 Israel cries out to me, “My God, we know you!” 3 Israel has rejected what is good; an enemy will pursue him. 4 They have installed kings, but not through me. They have appointed leaders, but without my approval. They make their silver and gold into idols for themselves for their own destruction. 5 Your calf-idol is rejected, Samaria. My anger burns against them. How long will they be incapable of innocence? 6 For this thing is from Israel— a craftsman made it, and it is not God. The calf of Samaria will be smashed to bits! 7 Indeed, they sow the wind and reap the whirlwind. There is no standing grain; what sprouts fails to yield flour. Even if they did, foreigners would swallow it up. 8 Israel is swallowed up! Now they are among the nations like discarded pottery. 9 For they have gone up to Assyria like a wild donkey going off on its own. Ephraim has paid for love. 10 Even though they hire lovers among the nations, I will now round them up, and they will begin to decrease in number under the burden of the king and leaders. 11 When Ephraim multiplied his altars for sin, they became his altars for sinning. 12 Though I were to write out for him ten thousand points of my instruction, they would beregarded as something strange. 13 Though they offer sacrificial gifts and eat the flesh, the Lord does not accept them. Now he will remember their guilt and punish their sins; they will return to Egypt. 14 Israel has forgotten his Maker and built palaces; Judah has also multiplied fortified cities. I will send fire on their cities, and it will consume their citadels.” Hosea chapter 8 “Is not my WORD like fire”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“and like a hammer that pulverizes rock?” Jer 23:29
  9. Quote: “We’ve considered some 300 different locations. Finally, we found a suitable area near Chelmsford in Essex. This property is presently known as “TEMPLE Farms”. “As you can see, the Britain Branch relocation project is progressing well. Just like theocratic construction projects in Bible times, and more recently. We’re CONFIDENT that Jehovah will continue to bless this project…” The JW reads Luke 14:29, but let’s include the scriptures before and after – Now as Jesus proceeded on his journey, great crowds accompanied him, and he turned and spoke to them, “If anyone comes to me without ‘hating’ his father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, and even his own life, he cannot be a disciple of mine. The man who will not take up his cross (“figuratively, exposure to death, i.e. self-denial”) and follow in my footsteps cannot be my disciple. 28-30 “If any of you wanted to build a tower, wouldn’t he first sit down and work out the cost of it, to see if he can afford to finish it? Otherwise, when he has laid the foundation and found himself unable to complete the building, everyone who sees it will begin to jeer at him, saying, ‘This is the man who started to build a tower but couldn’t finish it!’ 31-33 “Or, suppose there is a king who is going to war with another king, doesn’t he sit down first and consider whether he can engage the twenty thousand of the other king with his own ten thousand? And if he decides he can’t, then, while the other king is still a long way off, he sends messengers to him to ask for conditions of peace. So it is with you; only the man who says goodbye to all his possessions can be my disciple. It is true, this video is mocking the organization for their empty promises touted as “blessings from Jehovah”, although this “tower” the organization is attempting to finish despite having financial difficulties, mocks God’s true spiritual “House”. 1 Pet 2:5; 1 Cor 3:16,17; 2 Cor 6:16; Eph 2:20-22; Rev 13:1,5,6 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Pet+2%3A5%3B+1+Cor+3%3A16%2C17%3B+2+Cor+6%3A16%3B+Eph+2%3A20-22%3B+Rev+13%3A1%2C5%2C6+&version=NKJV In the foregoing scriptures is Jesus talking about building physical empires, or is he speaking of the cost and consequences of following him? Are the leaders of the Wt., who delegate this pagan building endeavor, true disciples of Christ? No. 1 John 2:19; Jude 1:12,13; Matt 7:18,20; Rev 8:10,11 They are attached to their ever-increasing pagan idols, and desire your money, JWs, to keep financing their “towers”. Jer 22:13-17; Isa 5:8,9 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+John+2%3A19%3B+Jude+1%3A12%2C13%3B+Matt+7%3A18%2C20%3B+Rev+8%3A10%2C11%3B+Jer+22%3A13-17%3B+Isa+5%3A8%2C9+&version=NKJV The “theocratic construction projects” in Bible times were the building of temples, which God blessed with his Holy Spirit. 2 Chron 7:1 Within these early temples, a sanctioned priesthood offered holy sacrifices – burnt offerings, grain, sin, peace, thank, gift and trespass offerings - each one significant in being fulfilled once and for all, by Christ. Col 2:14; Heb 8:1,2 What sort of sacrifices are performed in the Watchtower ‘temples’, and to whom? They are all unholy, pagan sacrifices offered by “slaves” to “Jehovah’s organization”. Rom 6:16 And who acts as “temple” priests? An unanointed elder body. Rev 13:1,2,4, 11,14-18; 2 Thess 2:3,4 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Chron+7%3A1%3B+Col+2%3A14%3B+Heb+8%3A1%2C2%3B+Rom+6%3A16%3B++Rev+13%3A1%2C2%2C4%2C+11%2C14-18%3B+2+Thess+2%3A3%2C4+&version=NKJV If today there are to be, spiritual sacrifices to be offered by an appointed priesthood, is there a need for a PHYSICAL temple? The only Temple sanctioned by God, is built on Christ, the foundation cornerstone of the SPIRITUAL Temple, comprised of “living stones”, who are the anointed in Christ. 1 Cor 3:16,17 CAN YOU SEE THAT THE ENTIRETY OF THE WATCHTOWER – IT’S “IMAGE” AS A “SPIRIT-DIRECTED ORGANIZATION” AND ITS PLENTIFUL ESTATES COMPARED TO EARLY TEMPLES ARE ALL… IDOLS? Can you discern that the CORNERSTONE of God’s true Temple has been rejected by your leaders, JWs, and is replaced with an idol? 1 Pet 2:6-8 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Pet+2%3A6-8&version=NKJV “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” Matt 7:24-27 God does not accept the variety of physical temples including “Bethel”, as well as a spiritual temple/Zion which the Watchtower claims is both an earthly and heavenly “organization”. This is the 360-degree illusion the Wt. has created. What Temple isn’t mentioned by your leaders and which has lost significance in the JW mind? It is Watchtower’s hidden target for “trampling” - the Temple/holy priesthood belonging to the Father under the “woman” covenant. Matt 24:15; Dan 8:11; Rev 13:6,7; Gal 4:26; Rev 12:1,13 More praise is given to what man’s hands have built and the image it portrays, than God’s invisible building within the anointed. 1 Cor 3:9 As a result, “Jehovah’s” awe-inspiring “spirit-directed organization” is easily accepted and revered. Rev 13:4 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matt+24%3A15%3B+Dan+8%3A11%3B+Rev+13%3A6%2C7%3B+Gal+4%3A26%3B+Rev+12%3A1%2C13%3B1+Cor+3%3A9%3B+Rev+13%3A4++&version=NKJV Jesus said, only the man who says goodbye to all his possessions can be my disciple. He mentioned what that encompasses, in Luke 14:26, what we must “hate”, “disregard”, “love less”. When we see the Watchtower for the idol it is, and reject it to serve the Father and Christ, we have calculated the cost of following Christ. We know we can lose our family members and the life we once had in the organization. “Then he called his disciples and the people around him, and said to them, “If anyone wants to follow in my footsteps, he must give up all right to himself, take up his cross and follow me. The man who tries to save his life will lose it; it is the man who loses his life for my sake and the Gospel’s who will save it. What good can it do a man to gain the whole world at the price of his own soul? What can a man offer to buy back his soul once he has lost it? If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this unfaithful and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in the Father’s glory with the holy angels around him.” Mark 8:34-38 Jesus said, “I can guarantee this truth: Anyone who gave up his home, brothers, sisters, mother, father, children, or fields because of me and the Good News will certainly receive a hundred times as much here in this life. They will certainly receive homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields, along with persecutions. But in the world to come they will receive eternal life.” Mark 10:29-30 JWs, you know the law covenant and its sacrifices are fulfilled in CHRIST. Acts 13:23,32; Gal 3:16; Heb 8:3-6 His body replaced the physical temple of worship. John 4:24; 2:19-22; 1 Cor 3:16,17; Eph 4:15 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Acts13%3A23%2C32%3B+Gal.3%3A16%3B+Heb+8%3A3-6%3B+John+4%3A24%3B+2%3A19-22%3B+1+Cor+3%3A16%2C17%3B+Eph+4%3A15+&version=NKJV There isn’t a new “covenant” God decreed with the Watchtower organization and its many slanted definitions of “temple”; but with His anointed priesthood/”living stones”/firstfruits; who, through the sacrificial offering of their lives and Witness to Truth, become sealed into the Temple of God. Lev 10:11; Mal 2:7; Num 8:18,19; 1 Cor 15:23; James 1:18; Heb 8:1,2; 12:22-24 Their actions of faithfulness lead to the “healing of the nations”. Rom 8:19-22; Rev 22:1,2 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Lev+10%3A11%3B+Mal+2%3A7%3B+Num+8%3A18%2C19%3B+1+Cor+15%3A23%3B+James+1%3A18%3B+Heb+8%3A1%2C2%3B+12%3A22-24%3BRom+8%3A19-22%3B+Rev+22%3A1%2C2&version=NKJV About priestly sacrifices, Pearl Doxsey comments: “Animal sacrifices ended for God's new Nation, with the sacrifice of Jesus Christ (Rom.10:4; 1Cor.5:7; Heb.10:10; 9:12,13,14,15) The New Covenant involves new sacrifices from it's members (Hosea6:6; Heb.13:15; Rev.6:9; Eph.5:2; Psalm141:2; Rev.5:8; 8:4; Rom.12:1;Phil.2:17). For those in the New Covenant, there is a new sacrifice of life, and new gift offering. When Daniel mentions the end of the daily sacrifice (Daniel12:11; Rev.6:9; Rom.6:3; Psalm51:17), it also referred to the "gift offering" (Dan.9:27 "he shall cause the zevach [sacrifice] and the minchah [gift offering] to cease) Heb.13:15. [I believe this is the same period when there is a "half-hour" of "silence in heaven" (Rev.8:1; Job.12:19,20; Lam.2:10; Amos8:2,3; Isa.42:14; Rev.12:2)]. I believe this to be the period while Satan is successful in "trampling the Holy Place" (Dan.8:13Rev.11:2) into a condition of sleep and inebriation (Matt.25:1,5; 5:13; Jer.51:7;Rev.18:3), through the lying signs and portents of the Wild Beast (2Thess.2:3,4,9; Rev.12:15; 16:13,14,15; 13:11,13,14; Matt.24:24; Col.2:8). This is when the "gift offering" being offered by the anointed "priests", ceases (1Pet.2:5; Rom.15:16; 1Tim.4:16; 2Pet.1:8; Col.1:10).” (4womaninthewilderness) When are the thanksgiving and gift offerings resumed by today’s priesthood? In Hezekiah’s day, it was when the temple doors were reopened, and when the process of consecrating the temple and priests was finished. 2 Chron 29:15-17 Now, it is during this Marriage Feast, that Temple members who have realized Christ as their Head resulting in their “death” at the hands of the Beast/organization, and are cleansed of all Wt. lies. Rev 11:1-4,7,8; 13:15-17; 3:18-20; Mal 3:1-5 They can then present their spiritual offerings acceptable before the Lord. 1 Pet 2:5; Heb 13:15 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Chron+29%3A15-17%3B+Rev+11%3A1-4%2C7%2C8%3B+13%3A15-17%3B+3%3A18-20%3B+Mal+3%3A1-5%3B+1+Pet+2%3A5%3B+Heb+13%3A15&version=NKJV On the other hand, the Harlot/governing body will have her “exposure to “death”, but not as a result of turning to Christ. She will be brought down by the organization she presently relishes. Rev 13:11,12; 17:12,13,15-18 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Rev+13%3A11%2C12%3B+17%3A12%2C13%2C15-18&version=NKJV "YHWH’s name is a strong tower: the righteous run to Him, and are safe." We know that scripture like the back of our hand, but keep reading: The rich man’s wealth is his strong city, like an unscalable wall in his own imagination. Before destruction the heart of man is proud, but before honor is humility." Ps 18:10-12
  10. - From June, 2017 William Malenfant: “Morality in the Last Days” (2 Tim. 3:13) video. “Never before have so many people around the globe openly practiced and flaunted sexual immoralily and not just among themselves, but they’re seeing that it is brought into the homes by means of internet, television and other means. Never before has man had the power to decimate entire populations by dropping just one bomb.” He also mentions the pollution problem in the world. All that he says is very true. When I listened to this man’s entire presentation, I could distinctly hear his words reflecting the spiritual condition within in the Watchtower, that of a spiritual sexual immorality being committed every day by those in charge, who flaunt it and bring into the home of JWs through their avenues of teachings – the internet, as well as the meetings. What is a spiritual fornication or spiritual immorality? God’s anointed ones must always speak in the purity of truth, never to defile or stain God’s word, or seduce others to do the same. To remain a spiritual “virgin”, all of God’s decrees must be followed. They are to be ‘holy and blameless’ to become part of Christ’s Bride. Eph 5:27,26; 2 Cor 11:2; 1 Tim 4:1 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Eph+5%3A27%2C26%3B+2+Cor+11%3A2%3B+1+Tim+4%3A1&version=NIV "These are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they remained virgins. They follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among mankind and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb. NO LIE WAS FOUND IN THEIR MOUTHS; THEY ARE BLAMELESS” Rev 14:4,5 Surely, if one were to glance at the history of the organization and the crooked paths it has taken in doctrines, we can easily see their determination to go beyond scripture. With multiple end time dates, changing doctrine and complete immersion into Satan’s world through their earthly organization, they are NOT BLAMELESS, and LIES are found, without a doubt, in their mouths. How they have worked hard just this summer to cover up THEIR 1975 LIE by putting the blame on the congregants, for acting with anticipation on a date found in the Wt. magazines. Prov 5:1-6 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs+5%3A1-6&version=NIV “You may say to yourselves, ‘How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the Lord?” If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously, so do not be alarmed.’ ‘But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, is to be put to death.’” Deut 18:21,22,20 - A prophet who is a chronic liar, has fallen into Satan’s covenant of death. Isa 28:14,15; Zech 8:16,17; 10:2 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isa+28%3A14%2C15%3B+Zech+8%3A16%2C17%3B+10%3A2&version=NIV - A prophet who relies on the power of a spiritual “Gentile” army to do its bidding and not on God’s Holy Spirit through Christ and his anointed priesthood, has for its father, Satan the Devil. John 8:44; Rev 8:10,11; 13:11-17; 9:1-4 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+8%3A44%3B+Rev+8%3A10%2C11%3B+13%3A11-17%3B+9%3A1-4&version=NIV - A prophet who demands obedience to be given to this elder/Gentile Body by all, which includes all anointed ones, is the Harlot of Revelation. No longer is this person one of Christ’s virgin members of his Bride. Rev 9:10; 13:5-7,15; Matt 24:15; Jude 1:13; 1 John 2:19 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Rev+9%3A10%3B+13%3A5-7%2C15%3B+Matt+24%3A15%3B+Jude+1%3A13%3B+1+John+2%3A19&version=NIV - A prophet who would just as easily disfellowship his own brothers in Christ for upholding him as our Head and only salvation and NOT the organization the prophet has built upon; is the Wicked Slave who beats his brothers into submitting to his haughty, self-righteous plan. Matt 24:48-51; 7:24-27; Rev 13:11 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matt+24%3A48-51%3B+7%3A24-27%3B+Rev+13%3A11&version=NIV Video – “Never before has there been such widespread lack of love, of natural affection that results in the death of children…. Over 1 billion abortions have taken place since 1980. That’s really something. That’s just about the population of China. If you can imagine and that is something that is accepted, is commonplace. AND YET SOME STILL INSIST THAT THINGS HAVEN’T CHANGED. WHY IS IT, WHY DO PEOPLE HAVE THAT ATTITUDE? WELL PART OF IT LIES IN WHAT THE SCRIPTURES TELL US. 2 Cor 4:3,4” “And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” (2 Cor 4:3,4) Now, look at 2 Cor 4:2, the verse before what he shared – “Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use DECEPTION, nor do we DISTORT the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth PLAINLY we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God.” Malenfant’s presentation is Satan’s ridicule against God’s chosen ones. He has used deception, distortion of the scriptures and lies to trap the anointed ones (kings, Rev 5:10;17:18) and companions, to bring his destructive army against them. Those in the organization today have little accurate knowledge of its past history. The Watchtower carefully refines their past, showing only what they believe is saleable. I have a bottle of lotion made by a company that has been in existence since 1868. I would like to believe the honesty of this product and its ingredients, that it hasn’t changed in quality, although I do know that its ingredients have improved since 1868. It is what I expect in a lotion. Evidence with the Watchtower’s mountain of discarded books since its inception, the admittance by its leaders as being uninspired show not only drastic change, but a downward spiral in quality. This, from an organization that says God and Christ are guiding its people. Eccl 12:11-14; Gal 6:7 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Eccl+12%3A11-14%3B+Gal+6%3A7+&version=NIV If something is aborted, it is stopped before it begins or is completed. Malenfant more than just touched on abortion of children; rather, he clearly pointed out this horrendous worldly situation. What about God’s spiritual children under the promise New Covenant? This promise “woman” covenant of life is attacked by Satan during Armageddon; his will is to ‘abort’ the prospective spiritual life of each of the “firstfruits”/anointed that they receive only when sealed. Gal 4:24,26; Rev 12:1,2 He uses those who have shirked off the prospect of life through Christ and have entered the covenant of death. Hos 6:7 The more successful he is to seduce with his lies, by containing the anointed and companions in a perceived “spiritual paradise”, the longer it is for the fulfillment of the New Covenant. The longer it is before Satan is destroyed. Gen 3:15,16 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Gal.4%3A24%2C26%3B+Rev.12%3A1%2C2%3B+Hos+6%3A7%3B+Gen+3%3A15%2C16&version=NIV Unless each person within the organization appeals to Revelation’s call to ‘come out’, their prospects of everlasting life is aborted. Rev 18:4-8 Over the span of the Watchtower’s history, what is it’s outlandish success rate of committing a spiritual abortion on Abraham’s seed? The “remaining ones of her seed” are who Satan now intensely focuses all of his deceptive powers; accomplishing this, not as we clearly see by signs in the world, but as an angel of light. Rev 12:17; 2 Thess 2:1-4,8-12; 2 Cor 11:13-15; Phil 3:18,19 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Rev+12%3A17%3B+2+Thess+2%3A1-4%2C8-12%3B+2+Cor+11%3A13-15%3B+Phil+3%3A18%2C19++&version=NIV When speaking of people not recognizing the signs of the end times, Malenfant says, “…they would not accept what the bible has to say and what’s most interesting about that is that the people who ignore and deny the sign that we’re living in the time of the end ARE PART OF THE SIGN THEMSELVES, what they do and with what they think.” Yes, the organization and all who are in it are part of the sign, yet the large majority will deny it and continually point outside the Watchtower for fulfillment. Rev 1:1; Luke 21:8,9 From “A GREAT DECEPTION” - “Satan realizes that the only way to prevent the remnant from grasping hold of the life-saving warnings, is to stage a counterfeit earlier fulfillment within the physical realm, over which he has power and authority (Rev.12:15,9; 13:9,10,11,14; Matt.24:4,5,23,48; 2Thess.2:2) ...both religious and secular. He has the power to do so (1John5:19; Matt.4:8-9). Satan hopes that the remnant who are searching for the truthful interpretations of unfolding end-time events, will be detoured, by Satan's own premature counterfeit "fulfillment" (2Cor.11:3,20; Rev.2:20; Col.2:8; Luke21:24; Rev.13:10; Dan.8:12; 2Thess.2:2,3,11; Matt.7:15; 24:4,8,11,13,24; Rev.13:11). Satan can not change nor fulfill the true spiritual signs Jesus gave. But he can fabricate a decoy within his own physical, visible realm, which is under his power (Rev.2:9; Eph.6:12; John12:31). (Pearl Doxsey 4womaninthewilderness) The speaker quotes the Watchtower – “The more familiar a situation is, the less people are inclined to pay attention to it.” He says, “Gradual decay of morality is dangerous. It makes me think of an illustration of how to boil a frog. If you heat up a pot and you have the water boiling and you drop a frog into it, what’s going to happen? He is out there, he’s not going to stay. That frog is not stupid, he hits the water, it’s terribly hot and out he jumps. But if you fill the pot with cool water and drop the frog in, then gradually, little by little, you heat it up until it gets to the boiling point. He’s cooked.” Gradually, the GB has replaced worshiping God whole-souled with ‘worshiping’ the organization, consistently praising it, giving thanks, loyalty and devotion to this idol; and over Watchtower’s history, the elder body has gained complete control over God’s anointed priesthood. Isa 46:5; Dan 7:25; Rev 20:9 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isa+46%3A5%3B+Dan+7%3A25%3B+Rev+20%3A9&version=NIV I find it interesting that the speaker used a frog for an example of this gradualism. This tactic of Satan is called “froglike” expressions in Rev. 16:13. Gradually, over time, what may ring of some truth, converts into an accomplished lie – (egg, a tadpole, to a frog) – and Satan’s goal is finally reached. Matt 4:1,6; Gen 3:1; 2 Thess 2:9-12;Rev 12:15,17; 2 Cor 11:3,4 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isa+46%3A5%3B+Matt+4%3A1%2C6%3B+Gen+3%3A1%3B+2+Thess+2%3A9-12%3BRev+12%3A15%2C17%3B+2+Cor+11%3A3%2C4&version=NIV “Then I saw three impure spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast (organization) and out of the mouth of the false prophet (GB/Harlot/false prophet). They are demonic spirits that perform signs, and they go out to the kings (anointed ones) of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.” “Look, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and remains clothed, so as not to go naked and be shamefully exposed.” “Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.” Rev 16:12-16 Wt 04/5/1 – “What rich blessing do Jehovah’s Witnesses enjoy? JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES DWELL in a spiritual paradise.” Wt 13/10/15 - “Jehovah’s organization provides the best education in the peaceful environment of the congregation.” “ While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.” 1 Thess 5:3 “Trees” signify God’s anointed messengers whom he has sent over the many decades. Mal 2:7 Jesus has given us ample warning of what these trees may ‘teach’, and to stay away from those who produce bad “fruit”. Matt 7:15-20 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mal+2%3A7%3B+1+Pet+2%3A5%2C9%3B+Matt+7%3A15-20&version=NIV “The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’” “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.” JWs, the GB leaders (“trees”) of the organization have you thoroughly convinced that you know the good as well as evil - the“deep secrets of Satan” (Rev 2:24); although evil resides where lies are found, where love for one’s brother is conditional on accepting changing doctrine and where God’s anointed priesthood are crushed under the hand of a false priesthood, the elder body. Everyone’s eyes will be opened in shame to this deception on the day Christ returns in glory, unless we heed his words: “I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I HAVE ACQUIRED WEALTH AND DO NOT NEED A THING.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.” Rev 3:15-18 Jer 6:13-15; Luke 6:45; Gen 2:17; 2 Cor 11:3; 1 Cor 15:34; Rev 6:16 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Jer+6%3A13-15%3B+Luke+6%3A45%3B+Gen+2%3A17%3B+2+Cor+11%3A3%3B+1+Cor+15%3A34%3B+Rev+6%3A16&version=NIV I echo Malenfant’s closing words and scriptures, but will direct them to the Watchtower Harlot who has seduced God’s people into committing spiritual immorality. Psalms 10:4; 12:8; 92:7 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalms+10%3A4%3B+12%3A8%3B+92%3A7+&version=NIV “And to that we say, Amen. So be it. “

    SALT COVENANT

    Matt 5:13 - “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.” Salt was a strong catalyst in the physical and spiritual biblical world. If we look into its great significance, we can then discern the meaning of Christ’s words. In Ezra 4:14, the letter written to Artaxerxes in Arabic, is read: “Now since we are UNDER OBLIGATION to the palace and it is not proper for us to see the king dishonored, we are sending this message to inform the king…” The original word for “under obligation” has salt in its basic meaning. mĕlach (Aramaic) - to eat salt, i.e. (generally) subsist:— have maintenance. Salt ‘maintains’ or preserves not only food but figuratively, represents a partnership, friendship, agreement or contract between parties. Both the physical use of salt and its figurative meaning joined in creating traditions and customs set in Bible times. If a host chose to eat with his guests instead of standing, it represented a “salt covenant” or a solid friendship that was born, since salt seasoned the food. The expression “there is salt between us” verbally signified the establishment of that friendship and its mutual loyalty. God referred to the nation of Israel as a people not “washed with water to make you clean, nor were you rubbed with salt (a cleanser for the skin; and even deeper, the soul) or wrapped in cloths” before He chose them as His nation. Ezek 16:1-5 Once His people, they were purified through His laws and wisdom as long as they remained steadfast and ‘maintained’ their obligations to the Lord. Deut 30:15-18 Aside from a salt covenant with King David (2 Chron 13:5), the Bible speaks of God’s salt covenant made with His chosen priesthood established through Aaron. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ezek+16%3A1-5%3B+Deut+30%3A15-18%3B++2+Chron+13%3A5&version=NIV “Season all your grain offerings with salt. Do not leave the salt of the covenant of your God out of your grain offerings; add salt to all your offerings.” Lev 2:18 “Whatever is set aside from the holy offerings the Israelites present to the Lord I give to you and your sons and daughters as your perpetual share. It is an everlasting covenant of salt before the Lord for both you and your offspring.” Num 18:19 It was necessary to salt every sacrifice offered as a continual reminder of the mutual agreement made between God and the priesthood. He chose them as His “special possession” and if they were loyal and obedient to the responsibilities put upon them, He promised to preserve and protect the priesthood eternally. Ezek 44:28; Num 18:1,5-8; Mal 2:7; 1 Pet 2:5,9,10 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ezek+44%3A28%3B+Num+18%3A1%2C5-8%3B+Mal+2%3A7%3B+1+Pet+2%3A5%2C9%2C10++&version=NIV Salt is an unchanging element of the earth, an excellent protection from contamination, and is a purifier when it permeates the food. The significance of adding salt to all the sacrifices, even grain offerings, represented pure, unadulterated worship to God in unchanging, enduring TRUTH. The entire nation of Israel was to be a “seasoned” people, set apart from the pagan nations and their corruptive teachings and sacrifices to their idols. Ezek 16:5-8; Deut 7:6-9;12:2-4 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ezek+16%3A5-8%3B+Deut+7%3A6-9%3B12%3A2-4&version=NIV The temple priesthood lost their “saltiness” at times throughout the Bible’s history. (Mal 2:1-8) This was the case when King Ahaz ruled Judah, a king whose wickedness rivaled that of all the ruthless kings of Israel. His lust for pagan worship resulted in his shutting the doors “to the Lord’s temple” and setting up pagan altars “at every street corner in Jerusalem”. 2 Chron 28:19,22-25 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mal+2%3A1-8%3B+2+Chron+28%3A19%2C22-25&version=NIV All of this, sounds rather familiar in a recent, symbolic way. Have the “doors” to the “Temple” been shut today by the pagan leaders of spiritual “Israel”. Yes, the GB/Harlot has admonished God’s priesthood, the dwelling of God, to become indiscernible; achieved through a spiritual, mental and emotional “trampling” by its Beast. 1 Pet 2:5,9; 1 Cor 3:16,17, Matt 24:15;2 Thess 2:3,4; 2 Cor 11:19,20; Col 2:8 Thus, they have shut the doors to pure worship, substituting false worship to a pagan god; the organization. New “temples” in many forms are now revered and worshipped in the Watchtower. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Pet+2%3A5%2C9%3B+1+Cor+3%3A16%2C17%2C+Matt+24%3A15%3B2+Thess+2%3A3%2C4%3B+2+Cor+11%3A19%2C20%3B+Col+2%3A8+&version=NIV The holy priesthood is silent, and unrecognized. Dan 12:7 They are unable to offer their spiritual sacrifices as God intended. Dan 8:11 They are to follow the example, Christ, the Head of the anointed Body, as also a “living sacrifice”; yet, for those priests under the power of the Harlot and her Gentile army, God’s anointed ones who are the “salt of the earth” have not retained their “saltiness”. Rom 12:1,2; Rev 13:1,11 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Dan+12%3A7%3B+8%3A11%3B+Rom+12%3A1%2C2%3B+Rev+13%3A1%2C11&version=NIV Pearl Doxsey, from her article, "Salt": "It is a certainty that the Temple of God (1Cor.3:16; Eph.2:20,21,22) is trampled in the time of the end (Rev.11:2; Dan.12:4,1;Matt.24:9; 10:22; Rev.11:9,10,7; John16:2; Dan.11:33; Rev.13:10) (Isa.5:5; Jer.12:10; Rev.11:2; 13:7). Why does God allow this to happen? Jesus tells us why God would subject His own Temple priests (1Pet.2:5,9) to endure this discipline (Mal.2:7-9; 3:1,2,3; Eze.44:10;Rev.13:8; Hosea4:6; Rev.2:23,20; Zech.13:9; Luke21:22). Matt.5:13 reads; “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and TRAMPLED UNDERFOOT." God allows His Temple priests to be trampled, because they have lost their "saltiness" (Num.18:19; 2Chron.13:5; Lev.2:13). These have abdicated their royal and priestly authority (Luke10:19; Rev.17:17) and have allowed the Beast to remove their continual sacrifice ("constant feature") (Luke10:19; Rev.17:13) as priests and kings, in favor of subjecting themselves to the Image / Idol, of the Wild Beast! (Rev.13:7,8; 2Thess.2:4; Dan.8:11,24,25; 11:31,36; 12:11) (2Cor.11:20; Col.2:8; Rev.13:10,7,8)." (4womaninthewilderness) King Hezekiah, whose name means “YHWH Strengthens”, had a wicked ball of yarn to untangle after his father Ahaz had died. Ahaz began his rule at the mere age of 20 by worshipping the Baals and sacrificing his own sons to the god Molech. (Deut 18:9-13; Lev 20:1-5) https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deut+18%3A9-13%3B+Lev+20%3A1-5&version=NIV More idolatry followed, as well as a very expensive pact made with the Assyrian king for his protection from Syria and Israel. 2 Chron 28:16; 2 Kings 16:7-9 It is astonishing that early on, God gave him a way out of his troubles, yet he chose the Assyrians instead of relying on God’s words through Isaiah. Isa 7:1-12 The Assyrians gave him “trouble instead of help”. (2 Chron 28:20,21) https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Chron+28%3A16%3B+2+Kings+16%3A7-9%3B+Isa+7%3A1-12%3B++2+Chron+28%3A20%2C21&version=NIV “In his time of trouble King Ahaz became even more unfaithful to the Lord. 23 He offered sacrifices to the gods of Damascus, who had defeated him; for he thought, “Since the gods of the kings of Aram have helped them, I will sacrifice to them so they will help me.” But they were his downfall and the downfall of all Israel.” 2 Chron 28:22,23 Thus, his corrupt pagan desires reached the point of cutting up the articles of the temple before closing its doors. Upon becoming king, Hezekiah re-opened the temple doors and completely sanctified all articles according to the laws of God, utilizing the efforts of the sanctified Levites and priests. All forms of idolatry were removed in his effort to restore true worship. 2 Chron. 29:3-9,31; 31:1 When Assyria came up against him, his reliance on God protected Jerusalem. 2 Chron 31:21;32:22 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Chron.+29%3A3-9%2C31%3B+31%3A1%3B+2+Chron+31%3A21%3B32%3A22&version=NIV I watched the Watchtower movie on Hezekiah, and after the event of Assyria breaking through the walls of Samaria, “Hezekiah” said, “these things came upon them because they sinned against God. The character “Isaiah” replied, “The king is right. From King Omri’s day the people of Samaria (coincidently meaning, “watch tower”) have served false gods. They openly practiced idolatry. ‘Jehovah’ foretold that these consequences would come upon them, but again and again they rejected his warnings.” JWs, can you see that this is why Watchtower’s reliance on a political “arm of flesh”(as the movie’s“Hezekiah” put it) to fight their battles in Russia will not be fruitful? They have “gone down to Egypt". Isa 31:1 Remember the final cut of the movie focuses on the words, “Jehovah rescues those who are loyal to him”. The True God, YHWH has rescued those who are loyal and faithful only to Him and His Son in TRUTH, not to the Watchtower Idol, Satan’s fabrication to destroy the anointed ones. For those of you who have awakened to Watchtower’s deceit, you will effectively discern the underhanded 'threat' that this movie reveals toward God’s anointed ones. You may detect a few innuendos, relating the Assyrian army and its threats, to an army of “locusts” that today we realize has come against spiritual “Jerusalem” – the anointed ones. Rev 9:1-6 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Rev+9%3A1-6&version=NIV Recall when “Hezekiah” told the little girl holding a wounded turtle dove (a sacrificial offering for the temple), “Ah yes, this is important. You have to promise me not to keep the bird locked up in a cage. When it can fly, set it free.” By the strength of YHWH, God’s people have been set free. After years of being “trampled” by a Gentile army under the direction of a false prophet/”king”, the Temple “door” has been re-opened. God’s priests can present their sacrificial offerings of pure worship in God’s Temple/Zion, by having “salt in themselves”. Rev 12:6; Luke 17:37;Heb 13:15; 1 Pet 2:9; Rev 19:4,5 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Rev+12%3A6%3B+Luke+17%3A37%3BHeb+13%3A15%3B+1+Pet+2%3A9%3B+Rev+19%3A4%2C5&version=NKJV “To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. 8 I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. 9 I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. 10 Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth. 11 I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12 The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name. 13 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. Rev 3:7-13 Who claims to "represent the 'royal priesthood', who are spiritual "Jews"? (Rom 2:29; Heb 8:10; 1 Pet 2:5,9,10) (w02 8/1 pp. 9-14) The elder body, who "tramples underfoot" the "salt of the earth".
  12. I speak often of Pearl Doxsey, an inspired anointed one who has been spiritually “killed” by the Watchtower/Beast and teaches Truth in Christ. Zech 4:1-5,11-14; Rev 11:1-3,4,7; 13:1,7,11,15; Matt 23:34; John 13:20 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Zech+4%3A1-5%2C11-14%3B+Rev+11%3A1-3%2C4%2C7%3B+13%3A1%2C7%2C11%2C15%3BMatt+23%3A34%3B+John+13%3A20&version=NIV For anyone interested, her comments on this program begins at 57.50 and continues with questions asked of her, until the end of the program. https://soundcloud.com/rick-fearon/six-screens-of-the-watchtower-conference-call-may-26-2018
  13. The truth is sobering. The entire 1 Tim 5:17 says, "The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching." This scripture is about the anointed priesthood and Body of Christ. This is their job, not a false priesthood who has replaced them. 1 Pet 2:5,9; Mal 2:7; 1 Cor 12:4-31 Since you mentioned that the Daily Texts was your category, I respected your wishes and never again commented there. I was unaware that this category belonged to you also. If this is the case, I will refrain from commenting under “Post a Photo”, although I thought it was open to all.
