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)
