Is it true: the memorial will stop after the last anointed have passed away?

Heard at the Memorial

Can't  believe  that  you  heard  that....  Forget  it !  Only  Jehovah  will  say  *STOP*  -  Take  more  patience....  The  last  anointed  and   the  Memorial  is  different  -  we  will  hear  that  in  time  from  our  Elders !

What is meant by 'passed away'? Scripture teaches us there will be a calling of those living with this hope at a time while alive and they will go to heaven, taking part in the war of Armageddon. So they all will not die of old age as we know it, but be taken, and being so will, will not be around for the next memorial and will not be observed. That is just common sense. That is what Jesus said in scripture.

How will the elders know when the last anointed goes to heaven?  It is a worldwide brotherhood and would be difficult to ascertain. There might be some in countries that are not reporting. It is better to phrase it the way Jesus said it - until he arrives.

Check this excerpt and note the scriptures.

*** w04 3/15 pp. 6-7 The Lord’s Evening Meal—How Observed? ***

Observe It How Often?

Should Jesus’ death be commemorated weekly or perhaps even daily? Well, Christ instituted the Lord’s Evening Meal and was unjustly put to death on Passover Day. Held only once a year, on Nisan 14, the Passover commemorated Israel’s deliverance from Egyptian bondage. (Exodus 12:6, 14; Leviticus 23:5) So the death of “Christ our passover” should be memorialized only once each year, not weekly or daily. (1 Corinthians 5:7) In observing the Lord’s Evening Meal, Christians follow the same procedure as Jesus did when he instituted it.

What, then, is meant by Paul’s words: “As often as you eat this loaf and drink this cup, you keep proclaiming the death of the Lord, until he arrives”? (1 Corinthians 11:26) In this text Paul used a word meaning “every time that,” or “whenever.” Thus, he was saying that whenever anointed Christians partook of the emblems, they would proclaim their faith in Jesus’ ransom sacrifice.

Anointed Christians would commemorate Christ’s death “until he arrives.” This observance would continue until Jesus’ arrival to receive his anointed followers into heaven by a resurrection to spirit life during his “presence.” (1 Thessalonians 4:14-17) This harmonizes with Christ’s words to the 11 loyal apostles: “If I go my way and prepare a place for you, I am coming again and will receive you home to myself, that where I am you also may be.”—John 14:3.

In  the  endtime  we  get  new  script-rolls...  the Elders  will  have  it,  bec. we're  the  sheep  and  need  an  exact  guidance !  Maybe,  all  anointed  then  in  Heaven...  thats  not  our problem  -  wait  and  have  patience...

Continuing along those lines, let us see that printed information we have on it.

15 Does this mean that there will be a “rapture” of the anointed ones? Many in Christendom believe, according to this teaching, that Christians will be bodily caught up from the earth. Then, they expect that Jesus will visibly return to rule the earth. However, the Bible clearly shows that “the sign of the Son of man” will appear in heaven and that Jesus will come “on the clouds of heaven.” (Matt. 24:30) Both of these expressions imply invisibility. Additionally, “flesh and blood cannot inherit God’s Kingdom.” So those who will be taken to heaven will first need to be “changed, in a moment, in the blink of an eye, during the last trumpet.” (Read 1 Corinthians 15:50-53.) Therefore, while we do not use the term “rapture” here because of its wrong connotation, the remaining faithful anointed will be gathered together in an instant of time.

 

***w16 1/15 p.26 "We Want to Go With You" ***

 

14  Anointed ones will be present in many parts of the earth when Jesus comes to gather them to heaven. Speaking of that time, the Bible says regarding Jesus: "He will send out his angels with a great trumpet sound, and they will gather his chosen ones together from the four winds, from one extremity of the heavens to their other extremity." (Matt. 24:31) The Scriptures do indicate that only a remnant of the anointed ones will be left on earth during the last days. (Rev. 12:17) However, the Bible does not state how many will be left at the time that the great tribulation begins.

 

Therefore when Jesus arrives and gathers his chosen ones and takes them to his heavenly home, the Memorial will cease to be celebrated. Only Jehovah and his Son will know how many of the anointed will be on earth. So we can safely say it will be celebrated until he arrives.
