  1. I believe you are right on both accounts. “Jehovah’s organization” stands in place of YHWH. It is a mountain-like “rock” that defies our true and only, Rock. The teaching of the Wt. proves that its organization is an idol, since “salvation” is only possible through adherence to the organization. They attach the name “Jehovah” to it. “To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One. Isa 40:25 “With whom will you compare me or count me equal? To whom will you liken me that we may be compared?” Isa 46:5 God has one spiritual “organization”; His
  2. “Lord, the God of Israel, there is no God like you in heaven above or on earth below—you who keep your covenant of love with your servants who continue wholeheartedly in your way. 22,23 “When your people Israel have been defeated by an enemy because they have sinned against you, and when they turn back to you and give praise to your name, praying and making supplication to you in this temple, 34 then hear from heaven and forgive the sin of your people Israel and bring them back to the land you gave to their ancestors. 33,34 When your people go to war against their enemies, wherever y
  3. Disgusting thing: “Forces from him will arise, desecrate the sanctuary fortress, and do away with the regular sacrifice. And they will set up the abomination of desolation.” Dan 11:31 “By smooth [words] he will turn to godlessness those who act wickedly toward the covenant, but the people who know their God will display strength and take action.” Dan 11:32 “Then the king will do as he pleases, and he will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will speak monstrous things against the God of gods; and he will prosper until the indignation is finished, for that which is de
  4. Yes, the GB is well taken care of. Whereas this woman, who faces an empty refrigerator in the picture below, has been told to ‘put the kingdom first’. So, she gives her last bit of money, which helps stock the fridge of the 8 men who live in luxury. She has misguided faith that soon, God will also fill her fridge as well…“all these things will be added to you”. Matt 6:33. Isn’t that how JWs perceive the perks of the “preaching work”? My husband and I thought the same thing. If we would go out in service regularly, and dedicate our energy to the organization, the rest of our material n
  5. In Kenya, $100 of US money will buy two 90kg each, of maize and beans. Plenty, for a family for a month, although it is a restricted diet, supported with greens that they may grow. That is, if they have the land to do so. This box, costing $75.00 requires a contribution from each member in a congregation to purchase it. Also, there is a fee to update it regularly. How long will the spiritual food last, provided from that box? A month? Maybe a year? (John 15:16) Are these people spiritually nourished in the long run, by what it offers? The “generation of 1914” who were not to
  6. A point that might/should make a difference in understanding the “image” of the Beast, is that the false prophet/Harlot of Rev 13:11 “breathes” spirit into the Beast. It then becomes “spirit-breathed”; taking on its “image” as a spirit-directed organization. @Arauna said the eighth king is the image. The Beast receives its “image” of spirit-breathed, well before the eight king arrives; since by the time it is in power, the Beast from the Sea has exposed/bared the sins of the false prophet. This false prophet, Harlot/Beast with "two horns like a lamb", is disfellowshipped. (Rev 13:11,
  7. You've totally changed the subject. Is it because you see truth and don't want to face it? Only Jesus’ flesh died; he lived on in the Spirit. He is immortal, and his faithful anointed who remain “in Christ”, also receive immortality at the death of their flesh. My goodness, he is the SON of God, who is immortal. (1 Tim 1:17) That immortality will only be given to the anointed, when they are sealed, and proven faithful as sons of God, as Jesus their Head proved to be. (James 1:12; Rev 2:10; 14:4) I preach the Jesus that scripture speaks of. Perhaps you should consider what Jesus
  8. I'm not focused on other religions, that would be you. I am focused on "Israel" and the sins of your leaders over them, and those whom they have employed with authority to judge them. I am focused on the anointed themselves, who have allowed God's Temple - which are the anointed - to be trampled. (1 Cor 3:16,17) Why else was John sent to "measure" the Temple in vision. Each anointed one is "measured" by the standards of Christ and truth - because, they are "living stones" of the Temple! As Rev 11:1,2 states though, the Temple and the altar have been defiled by "Gentiles". The
  9. The “defective bull” appears to be the “food sacrificed to idols” – to the organization. Rev 2:20 As your hypocritical leaders stated… "As Christians, we face up to similar challenges today. We cannot take part in any modern version of idolatry—be it worshipful gestures toward an image or symbol or the imputing of salvation to a person or an organization." Wt ‘90/11/1 p. 26 The GB priests (if indeed all 8 are really anointed) who have placed themselves above all other anointed priests in the organization, (Matt 24:48-51) have allowed the sanctuary of God, to be defiled by
  10. The “daily sacrifices” were, and are to be, administered by God’s priests. Are you a priest of “Israel”? “To offer burnt offerings to the LORD on the altar of the burnt offering continually morning and evening, and to do according to all that is written in the law of the LORD, which he commanded Israel” 1 Chron 16:40 “you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” 1 Pet 2:5 Korah wanted to be a priest, but he was killed for coveting the priesthood. Num 16:1
  11. You do know that in Dan 11:38, where it states “he will honor a god of fortresses”, it is speaking about the King of the North? According to your organization, that would be Russia. Most JWs may believe in 1914 as you say, but do you believe what your leaders teach you, about the King of the North? Or, do you have your own opinion? I’m glad you have your own opinion. Just realize that the “armed forces” of the King of the North, “desecrates the temple fortress” and abolishes the “daily sacrifice”. (Dan 11:31) It is the “man of lawlessness”, who “honors a god of fortresses”, set
  12. No doubt in Jesus’ day, the nations far and wide committed heinous atrocities. But Jesus appeared to his people under covenant with God. He didn’t concern himself with people of the nations, since God judges each person in righteousness, according to the circumstances they live in; according to their heart. God’s focus has always been with His people, Israel, and those in direct contact with them who may have joined them, or whom Israel was influenced by. So, Jesus’ reason for appearing, was as a “messenger”/”prophet”/Son of God/fulfilled promise of the firstborn of Abraham’s seed – S
  13. “Representing the royal priesthood are appointed elders, who serve in positions of responsibility in congregations of Jehovah’s people around the earth. These men deserve our respect and wholehearted support, whether they are of the anointed or not. Why? Because, through his holy spirit, Jehovah has appointed the older men to their positions. Rather than challenge their authority, we truly appreciate our hardworking elders! W02/8/1 pp 9-14” With representation of God’s priests, comes apparent authority. It is interesting that God would bless this non-biblical position, since now
  14. It really doesn’t take meticulous research to disprove 1914. “ In 1914 the long-awaited new heavens came into existence. The Messianic Kingdom born in that year rules from heaven itself, and Jehovah has given it authority over all the earth. ip chapter 26, pp 372-389 Anyone who was anointed after the death of the last of the anointed ones in the first group—that is, after those who witnessed the “beginning of pangs of distress” in 1914—would not be part of “this generation.”—Matt. 24:8. Kr chapter 1 pg 6-12 The Kingdom was apparently BORN in 1914 FOLLOWED BY “pangs o
