REFLECTION ON OUR GOVERNING BODY
Those who served many years in the organization of the new world, look carefully every day to our faithful and discreet slave, because all the prophecies revolve around them and live with them.
At one time, we understood a profound change of discernment, which was sufficient a ruler of a few men anointed to administer the land part of our organization body, because the more weight it currently supports Jesus Christ and his Kingdom centenary.
Now, reflect on something remarkable.
The governing body, by a simple natural rule, growing old since his appointment in 1919. The aging of its components, such physical maturity transferred to the group. Inexorably, the governing body would have been consumed in death if not reached before the end of the system.
COULD NOT Jehova rejuvenate its components, as it has done with any human being. Paul well he understood by saying (Romans 7:24) Miserable man that I am! Who will deliver me from the body undergoing this death?

But in the infinite wisdom of Jehovah, he extended the life of the governing body as a whole, its faithful and discreet slave.
As it did?
Since 1994, Jehovah has been giving life and youth to this governing body, by bringing in new members, as was the brother Gerrit Lösch. Then, in 1999, Samuel F. Herd, M. Stephen Lett, Guy H. Pierce, and David H. Splane. Later in 2005, Geoffrey Jackson and Anthony Morris. Finally the youngest member, Brother Mark Sanderson was incorporated.
Who can deny that Jehovah has extended the life of the faithful and discreet slave incorporating youth, to give the food at the right time, in extreme times next?

In 2010, two of the oldest members of the governing body died...  the brothers Ted Jaracz and later John Barr. Observe what was announced at Bethel, the morning of the death of Brother John Barr:
"We are saddened to report that we have heard this morning early in the morning service, Brother John E. Barr, the oldest of the Governing Council living member has completed his earthly course, last Saturday. In the last weeks before his death, when his health had deteriorated a little, he must have felt that the end of his life was approaching. he wrote an emotional letter of thanks to the people who work under him in the Department of Writing and Writing press transmitted to us by two other members of the Governing Body who went to visit him during his illness.

His death is a way represents a generational change from the Governing Body. Brother Barr was the last living member of the Governing Body directly associated with events taking place early in the "Lord's day" (Revelation 1:10) Other members of the Governing Body who still serve usually constitute a "Overlapping generation" Christ's brothers. As with the passage of the theocratic responsibilities of Moses to Joshua or Elijah to Elisha, fully anticipate moving forward undeterred and endlessly and acceleration of theocratic developments in these last moments of the last days and the system of things is very observable in agony.
While there is no doubt that those of us who knew and loved Brother Barr, as one 'of those who say: "Write: Happy they are the dead who die in union with [the] Lord from this time forward. Yes, he says the spirit, rest from their labors, for the things they did go along with them. " (Revelation 14:13), unquote
Right, there was a generational change in 2010, as there was Moses to Joshua Elias or Elisha. Both Joshua and Elisha continued the same work.

So there was also an OVERLAP in the governing body.
As shown in the graph recently used in the congregation book study, there is an overlap of the most aged men with the younger ones in the governing body or faithful and discreet slave.
CONCLUSION ON THIS REFLECTION:
Since the last knowledge received on the last presence of the faithful and discreet slave on the planet, he tells us not to stay not one member before the outbreak of the war of Armageddon, and since this generation shall not pass, it is time for there is an additional rejuvenation of the governing body?
BEWARE BROTHERS....

I wonder what is there to 'beware' of?

we know this already - same as our body that create new cells every time; so, the new supply of annointed brothers and sisters but that doesn't mean that the time will be shortened or lengthened or even changed - Jehovah set the time limit since Jesus enthronement like in Noah's day.   The coundown is there already - we are not just aware exactly when it will be over but it is very close! Like how we observe the leaf of a fig tree - when you see new leaf - you know that the summer is near.  Finding new and young member of the Governing Body is the same -. The Great day of Jehovah is REALLY near.

 

- if the world says 'calm before the storm'. We say 'prepare for the coming storm and then there will be calm'. ?

The overlapping generation was first presented by John Barr just months before he died. He was born in 1913 and, technically he qualified to be in Group #1, which would have implicitly allowed Group #1 to end in 2010. If there were any 20-year-old anointed contemporaries who were also alive while Barr was alive in 2010, then they could potentially live for another 100 years, and this might imply the possibility that the system could go on until 2110. 

Brother Barr was effectively dismissed from Group #1 when Brother Splane gave the famous presentation based on a chart that used F.W.Franz as a good example of Group #1. It raised the bar (as it were) by stating that the person should have already been anointed in 1914, not merely someone now known to be anointed who was "on hand" in 1914. Note the difference:

*** w10 6/15 p. 5 United in Love—Annual Meeting Report ***
Jesus evidently meant that the lives of the anointed ones who were on hand when the sign began to be evident in 1914 would overlap with the lives of other anointed ones who would see the start of the great tribulation.”

*** w14 1/15 p. 31 par. 15 “Let Your Kingdom Come”—But When? ***
Jesus was referring to two groups of anointed Christians. The first group was on hand in 1914, and they readily discerned the sign of Christ’s presence in that year. Those who made up this group were not merely alive in 1914, but they were spirit-anointed as sons of God in or before that year.

The first version in 2009 (Wt, 6/15/2010) could have implied the second, but only the second version made it explicit. Then again, one could still argue that Brother Barr was already "anointed" in 1913 in the sense that Ephesians states:

(Ephesians 1:4, 5) 4 as he chose us to be in union with him before the founding of the world, that we should be holy and unblemished before him in love. 5 For he foreordained us to be adopted as his own sons through Jesus Christ, according to his good pleasure and will,

The choice of young Brother Sanderson who was assigned to the Governing Body in 2012 was supposed to have been directly related to this new teaching. Very few "anointed" in the second group were young, and still had a respectable "high profile" in the organization.

We should not quarrel with the "word"  kill.  Why?  Because whether sickness, punishment, prison, hard labour, whatever that terminates one's life comes from the  power of Satan.   1 John 5: 19 says that he is the controller of this world affairs.  What we should be concerned now is not to be side-tracked in the work of the Lord.  It is like an injury time - not much time remains.

Right, there was a generational change in 2010, as there was Moses to Joshua Elias or Elisha. Both Joshua and Elisha continued the same work.

So there was also an OVERLAP in the governing body.

Again the GB and their teaching is compared to the inspired prophet, Moses.  The Feb 2017 Wt study, “Jehovah Leads His People” and “Who Is Leading God’s People Today?” attempt to use Moses’ example of leading the Israelites, to weekly compare this powerful man’s role with the GB’s role; implying they, too, are empowered by God’s Holy Spirit. 

Since “both articles will consider three lines of evidence that Jehovah has indeed been behind those men, proving that he was—and still is—the true Leader of his people”.

One line of evidence used is,

“Holy spirit empowered God’s representatives. Consider Moses, who was commissioned to be the leader of the Israelites.  What equipped him to care for that weighty assignment? Jehovah “put within him His holy spirit.” (Read Isaiah 63:11-14.) By empowering Moses with holy spirit, Jehovah continued to lead His people.”

Ah, but….

“The Governing Body is neither inspired nor infallible. Therefore, it can err in doctrinal matters or in organizational direction.

To be inspired, Holy Spirit is “put within” one by the breath of God, as God did to Moses.   It is “divinely breathed in” and settled within the heart.  John 20:22; 2 Cor 1:22

Did Moses err in any direction that God wanted His people to go?  Considering Moses and his blessing of Holy Spirit proves little that the GB is the true leader of God’s people.  It is quite evident that the generation teaching has gone through many changes…since the organization’s inception.  Since the GB is not inspired, how does any JW now know that the present teaching is accurate?  

When David was persecuted by Saul, mighty men came to his side.  It was an inspiring, courageous effort on the part of these men to bring David aid; a great effort made in defense of their God. 

“Then the Spirit clothed Amasai, chief of the thirty, and he said, “We are yours, O David, And with you, O son of Jessse! Peace peace to you, and peace to your helpers! For your God helps you”.  Then David received them and made them officers of his troops.”  1 Chron 12:18

Among the divisions of armed troops were those of Issachar, men “who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, 200 chiefs, and all their kinsmen under their command”.  1 Chron 12:32

These men had God’s Holy Spirit, in the understanding of the times and in giving necessary direction.

We see it is possible to receive true understanding when one has the blessing of Holy Spirit. Can the same be said for the Governing Body as it leads the army of Jehovah’s Witnesses, when they admit they ‘err in doctrinal matters and organizational direction’?  Mark 7:7; 1 Thess 2:13; Col 2:20-23

If you look at the original version that Queen Esther posted here you can see that the words were translated from " CUÍDENSE HERMANOS ."  This just means "Take Care, Brothers"

Also, if you run the whole thing through Bing translator, it can clear up a couple of the issues that remained from Google translator. (It also translated "died" instead of "killed.") Neither translator is perfect, of course. It helps more to have family members that speak fluent Spanish.

    • Definitely should try the Bond roll here when you get a chance: this is a mom and pop place that does a great job  
    • An interesting concept, bible discipline. I am struck by the prevalence of ignorance about spiritual discipline on "Reddit." While physical and mental disciplines receive attention, the profound impact of spiritual discipline on a person's physical and mental well-being is often overlooked. Is it possible to argue against the words of the Apostle Paul? When he penned those words in Hebrews 12, he was recognizing that there are moments when an individual must be "rebuked" in order to be corrected. Even Jesus himself established a precedent when he rebuked Peter and referred to him as Satan for failing to comprehend what Jesus had already revealed to the apostles. Did that imply that Jesus had an evil heart? Not at all, it was quite the opposite; Jesus had a loving heart. His need to correct Peter actually showcased his genuine love for him. If he hadn't cared, he would have let Peter persist in his mistaken ways, leading to a fate similar to Judas'. There is a clear emphasis on avoiding the apostate translation and its meaning, yet many seem to overlook the biblical foundation for the reasons NOT to follow the path of the fallen brethren or those with an apostate mentality. Those individuals have embraced the path of darkness, where the illuminating power of light cannot penetrate, to avoid receiving the righteous discipline based on God's Bible teachings. They are undoubtedly aware that this undeniable truth of life must be disregarded in order to uphold their baseless justifications for the unjust act of shunning. Can anyone truly "force" someone or stop them from rejecting a friend or family member? Such a notion would be absurd, considering the fact that we all have the power of free will. If a Witness decides to distance themselves from a family member or friend simply because they have come out as gay, who is anyone within the organization to question or challenge that personal sentiment? It is unfortunate that there are individuals, both within and outside the organization, who not only lack a proper understanding of the Bible but also dare to suggest that God's discipline is barbaric. We must remember that personal choices should be respected, and it is not for others to judge or condemn someone based on their sexual orientation but should be avoided under biblical grounds. No one should have the power to compel an individual to change their sexual orientation, nor should anyone be forced to accept someone for who they are. When it comes to a family's desire to shield their children from external influences, who has the right to challenge the parents' decision? And if a family's rejection of others is based on cultural factors rather than religious beliefs, who can impose religious judgment on them? Who should true followers of Christ follow? The words of God or those who believe they can change God's laws to fit their lives? How can we apply the inspired words of Paul from God to embrace the reality of God's discipline? On the contrary, how can nonconformists expect to persuade those with a "worldview" that their religious beliefs are unacceptable by ostracizing individuals, when God condemns homosexuality? This is precisely why the arguments put forth by ex-witnesses are lacking in their pursuit of justice. When they employ misguided tactics, justice remains elusive as their arguments are either weak or inconsistent with biblical standards. Therefore, it is crucial to also comprehend Paul's words in 1 Corinthians 9:27. The use of the word "shun" is being exaggerated and excessively condemned by those who reject biblical shunning as a form of punishment. Eph 5:3-14 NIV 3 But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people. 4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. 5 For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person — such a man is an idolater — has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.  6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient. 7 Therefore do not be partners with them.  8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible. The impact of the message becomes significantly stronger when we emphasize the importance of avoiding any association with unrighteousness and those who remain unrepentant. In fact, it becomes even more compelling when we witness how some individuals, who dismiss biblical shunning as a method of discipline, excessively criticize and condemn the use of the word "shun". Therefore, Jehovah's Witnesses do not shun people; instead, they choose to focus on the negative actions being committed, which is in accordance with biblical teachings. This should be construed as ex-Witness rhetoric. Now, let's consider why ex-Witnesses specifically target one particular religion. What justifications do they provide when other Christian denominations also adhere to the same principle grounded in the Bible? Chapter 1 - Preface Both must therefore test themselves: the one, if he is qualified to speak and leave behind him written records; the other, if he is in a right state to hear and read: as also some in the dispensation of the Eucharist, according to  custom enjoin that each one of the people individually should take his part. One's own conscience is best for choosing accurately or shunning. And its firm foundation is a right life, with suitable instruction. But the imitation of those who have already been proved, and who have led correct lives, is most excellent for the understanding and practice of the commandments. "So that whosoever shall eat the bread and drink the cup of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup."  It therefore follows, that every one of those who undertake to promote the good of their neighbours, ought to consider whether he has betaken himself to teaching rashly and out of rivalry to any; if his communication of the word is out of vainglory; if the the only reward he reaps is the salvation of those who hear, and if he speaks not in order to win favour: if so, he who speaks by writings escapes the reproach of mercenary motives. "For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know," says the apostle, "nor a cloak of covetousness. God is witness. Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome as the apostles of Christ. But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children."   (from Ante-Nicene Fathers, Volume 2) Divine promises 2. The manner of shunning, in the word escaping. There is a flying away required, and that quickly, as in the plague, or from a fire which hath almost burned us, or a flood that breaketh in upon us. We cannot soon enough escape from sin (Matt 3:7; Heb 6:18). No motion but flight becomes us in this case. Doctrine: That the great end and effect of the promises of the gospel is to make us partakers of the Divine nature. (from The Biblical Illustrator)  
    • Clearly, they are already demanding your exile. Yes! It's unfortunate that Pudgy spoiled a great discussion about science. I hope the discussion can continue without any more nonsensical interruptions. Just a suggestion since they are on your heels. Wow! You speak! It seems you have a lot to say! Now they are going to treat like, who do you think you are, mister big stuff! Are those aliens now going to imply that anyone who speaks out against the five or six key contributors to this site will be treated as though it is George just because those in opposition speak the language they hate to hear, the TRUTH? They are seeking individuals who will embrace their nonconformist values and appreciate what they can offer in shaping public opinion contrary to the established agenda of God and Christ. Their goal is to enhance their writing abilities and avoid squandering time on frivolous pursuits, mainly arguing about the truth they don't care for. They see it all as a mere game, even when leading people astray. They believe they have every right to and will face no biblical repercussions, or so they believe. They just want to have fun just like that Cyndi Lauper song. Be prepared to be belittled and ridiculed, all the while they claim to be angels. Haha! By the way, please refrain from using the same language as George. They appear to believe that when others use the same words, it means they are the same person, and they emphasize this as if no one else is allowed to use similar grammar. It seems they think only they have the right to use the same or similar writing styles. Quite amusing, isn't it? See, what I just placed in bold, now I'm George, lol! Now, let's leave this nice science thread for people that want to know more about science. I believe George left it at "Zero Distance."  
    • Nice little thread you’ve got going here, SciTech. It would be a shame if something were to happen to it.
    • It's truly disheartening when someone who is supposed to be a friend of the exclusive group resorts to using profanity in their comments, just like other members claiming to be witnesses. It's quite a ludicrous situation for the public to witness.  Yet, the "defense" of such a person, continues.
