HELP FOR THE AFFLICTED ONES

My oldest son and his JW wife, were both raised in the organization, and they both suffered from PTSD once they left Watchtower’s indoctrination.  After their marriage ended, my son fell into such a deep depression that it was necessary to receive professional help.  Although I still see the tailings of his depression even after several years now, he is able to be a productive person managing the daily demands this life puts upon us.  The letter read by the woman who produced this video reminded me all over again of just how many JWs are also facing affliction and depression experienced by those still in and also by those who have left the Watchtower.    This letter cries out from Bethel. 

"News from Inside the Tower!"    

    Hello guest!

Like my son, many who leave the organization, fail to invest in their spiritual needs, abandoning all faith in God and Christ.  Matt 7:13,14 Their search for the sustaining help from God comes to an abrupt halt, right at the crucial pinnacle of one’s spiritual life; and right at the moment when God has provided just what we need to see us through this Great Tribulation; He has provided the Marriage Feast. 

    Hello guest!

From Pearl Doxsey’s article, “Is Leaving the City Enough?” 

"You have rejected the City. You have left it. Now what?
God assures us through Christ's illustration, that you will receive an invitation to the marriage feast, due to your prudence (shown by your rejection of it's "wormwood" doctrines) Matt 22:9,10

However.....
Do you not see many on the various forums, also rejecting the false teachings of the WT, criticizing the GB and elders, and leaving the Org.? This does not result in divine approval, nor eternal life. In fact, they are the "hated birds" (

), that tear at the flesh (

) of the prominent (
    Hello guest!
). Those who eat the sins of others as sustenance, are "hated" and "unclean" before God (
    Hello guest!
; 
    Hello guest!
). To recognize, criticize, and reject the faults of the WT leaders/Harlot, and their minion organizational Beast, does not guarantee God's approval, or eternal life. 


As stated before, taking in truth, results in life (

    Hello guest!

    Hello guest!
). Today's truth of Christ (the opened scroll of Revelation -

It is now up to you, whether or not you will accept them (

or not (

Pearl has several articles to aid us in this time of tribulation.  They are FREE, requiring no obligations to men. Isa 55:1,2 For those of you who feel like any described by the letter read in the video, please take the more difficult step, but the most refreshing and rewarding one, and seek the true God and His Son. Matt 7:7  Learn why you feel as you do, what authentic promises await us, and the outcome for the deceptive ruse Satan built to mislead God’s anointed and the nations with them.

The Great Tribulation

Can the Watchtower Crumble?

New Scrolls

YHWHÂ’s Genuine Mountain

The Holy City

 

Psalm 121 - A song of ‘ascents’  (“the things that arise in your mind”, “a journey to a higher place”)

I lift my eyes toward the mountains.
Where will my help come from?
 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

 He will not allow your foot to slip;
your Protector will not slumber.
 Indeed, the Protector of Israel
does not slumber or sleep.

 The Lord protects you;
the Lord is a shelter right by your side.
 The sun will not strike you by day
or the moon by night.

The Lord will protect you from all harm;
he will protect your life.
The Lord will protect your coming and going
both now and forever.

In 2016, Watchtower stated under the article “You Can Share in Strengthening Our Christian Unity”

Toward the end of the first century C.E., the apostle John received a vision of seven angels, each of whom sounded a trumpet blast. When the fifth angel blew his trumpet, John saw “a star” fall from heaven to earth. The “star” had a key in his hand with which he opened the shaft of an abyss. Thick smoke poured out, and from this came a plague of locusts. Rather than ravage vegetation, the symbolic locusts swarm against those people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.” (

    Hello guest!
) John no doubt knew how devastating a locust swarm could be. Had not locusts plagued ancient Egypt in Moses’ day? (
    Hello guest!
) The figurative locusts that John saw well illustrate anointed Christians proclaiming Jehovah’s powerful judgment messages. They are joined now by millions of companions with an earthly hope. Little wonder that our united preaching undermines the authority Satan exercises through his worldwide empire of false religion!

Who are the people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads?  It is not “Christendom”, but the anointed ones whom Watchtower erroneously say are the “locusts-scorpions”.

In 2016 again, we have the answer, yet with error. 

Watchtower 16/1 pp. 22-27  “We Want to Go With You”

No one can know whether an anointed Christian will receive his heavenly reward until Jehovah judges that person to be worthy of such a prize. Jehovah makes this determination and gives him the final sealing either sometime before he dies faithfully or sometime before the outbreak of “the great tribulation.” (

    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
)

Here are those scriptures:

“Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you life as your victor’s crown.” Rev 2;10

Prison?  Col 2:8; 2 Tim 2:25,26; Matt 10:16-18; Luke 21:12; Rev 11:1-3,7; 13:1,7-10; 16:13-16  https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Col+2%3A8%3B+2+Tim+2%3A25%2C26%3B+Matt+10%3A16-18%3B+Luke+21%3A12%3B+Rev+11%3A1-3%2C7%3B+13%3A1%2C7-10%3B+16%3A13-16&version=NKJV

“Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.”  Rev 7:3

“I answered, “Sir, you know.”

“And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”  Rev 7:14

Continue with Rev. 7:15:

“Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel.

Watchtower states the anointed are sealed before the Great Tribulation breaks out. Yet, the anointed suffer under the sting of the locust army first, before it “breaks out” on all – the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree.  These are symbolic meanings, not literal vegetation. 

Since the anointed are not the locust army of Revelation 9, who are? And who are the grass, green things, sea or tree?

PEARL DOXSEY:

Rev.9:3-4 reads; ”3 Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4 They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads."
Rev.7:2-3 reads; "2 Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, 3 saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees until we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.” 
--
From these verses, we learn that *"until" the slaves of God receive their seal (Rev.14:1; 22:4), other elements are under a protection from the harm, caused by the "locust-scorpions". What about after the slaves of God are sealed? Note that Rev.7:3 says that the protection does run out... 
"until we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads". 
--
Years ago, I wrote about this, during a time when "JWs" were still enjoying an illusion of "peace and security" under the "elder" army, even repeating phrases about "loving the brothers" and appreciating their sacrifices and hard work for "Jehovah's sheep", as loving shepherds. That was during a period when the complete number of the slaves of God, were not yet sealed. 
I wrote that the time would arrive when the torment being experienced by those chosen by God, would move on to the rank and file JW's... those not anointed, and those anointed not destined for a seal of faithfulness... members of the "trees, earth, and sea".
I believe that it has now become very clear, that this prophesied development has arrived, as evidenced in all the pouring out of complaints against the harsh treatment of "elders" as they implement the directives from the wicked steward.

For those interested in learning more about these two phases of the Great Tribulation, I hope you will consider that post, which was written five years ago. I am amazed to see it's fulfillment so soon. I hope those who examine this information, will realize what it means, about the final priests and kings, having been sealed.

The Great Tribulation – Two Phases

 

Matt.22:8-10 reads; "8 “Then he told his slaves, ‘The banquet is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. 9 Therefore go to where the roads **exit the city** and invite everyone you find to the banquet.’ 10 So those slaves went out on the roads and gathered everyone they found, both evil and good. The wedding banquet was filled with guests."

      Soyons reconnaissant devant toutes ses oeuvres
       
      Le Dieu des dieux, Jéhovah, parle ;
      il convoque la terre
      depuis le soleil levant jusqu’au soleil couchant.
      De Sion, la perfection de la beauté, Dieu rayonne.
      Notre Dieu viendra et ne pourra pas garder le silence.
      Il y a un feu dévorant devant lui,
      et une violente tempête fait rage autour de lui.
      Il convoque les cieux et la terre
      pour juger son peuple :
       « Rassemblez auprès de moi mes fidèles,
      ceux qui concluent une alliance avec moi par un sacrifice. »
      Les cieux proclament sa justice,
      car Dieu lui-même est Juge. (Sèla.)
       « Écoute, ô mon peuple, je vais parler ;
      ô Israël, je vais témoigner contre toi.
      Je suis Dieu, ton Dieu.
      Ce n’est pas pour tes sacrifices que je te réprimande,
      ni pour tes holocaustes, qui sont constamment devant moi.
      Je n’ai pas besoin de prendre un taureau de ta maison
      ni des boucs de tes enclos.
      Car tous les animaux sauvages de la forêt m’appartiennent,
      même les bêtes sur mille montagnes.
      Je connais tous les oiseaux des montagnes;
      les innombrables animaux des champs sont à moi.
      Si j’avais faim, je ne te le dirais pas,
      car le sol productif m’appartient, avec tout ce qui s’y trouve.
      Vais-je manger la viande des taureaux
      et boire le sang des boucs?
      Offre en sacrifice à Dieu ta reconnaissance
      et acquitte-toi des vœux que tu as faits au Très-Haut;
      appelle-moi en temps de détresse.
      Je te secourrai, et tu me glorifieras. »
      Mais Dieu dira au méchant :
      « De quel droit récites-tu mes prescriptions
      ou parles-tu de mon alliance?
      Car tu détestes la discipline,
      et sans cesse tu tournes le dos à mes paroles.
      Quand tu vois un voleur, tu l’approuves,
      et tu fréquentes les personnes adultères.
      Avec ta bouche, tu répands le mal,
      et tu attaches la tromperie à ta langue.
      Tu t’assieds et tu parles contre ton frère;
      tu révèles les défauts du fils de ta propre mère.
      Quand tu faisais ces choses, je gardais le silence,
      alors tu t’es dit que j’étais comme toi.
      Mais, à présent, je vais te réprimander
      et exposer ce que j’ai contre toi.
      Réfléchissez à ceci, s’il vous plaît, vous qui oubliez Dieu,
      sinon je vous déchirerai et il n’y aura personne pour vous secourir.
      Celui qui offre en sacrifice sa reconnaissance me glorifie ;
      et à celui qui est déterminé à bien agir
      je ferai voir le salut de Dieu. »

      Dieu aime les prières et la sincérité de ses serviteurs humbles
       
      Dieu aime la bonté de coeur envers autrui et non aux sacrifices et holocaustes d'animaux sauvages et domistiques.
      Dans ton amour fidèle, accorde-moi ta faveur, ô Dieu.
      Dans ta grande miséricorde, efface mes transgressions.
      Lave-moi complètement de ma faute
      et purifie-moi de mon péché.
      Car je suis bien conscient de mes transgressions,
      et mon péché est constamment devant moi.
      C’est contre toi que j'ai failli, oui j'ai fait le mal
      devant tes yeux.
      Ainsi, tu es juste quand tu parles,
      tu es droit quand tu juges.
      Vois ! Je suis né coupable
      et, depuis l’instant où ma mère m’a conçu, je suis pécheur.
      Vois ! Tu prends plaisir à la vérité dans le fond du cœur;
      enseigne-moi la vraie sagesse, au plus profond de moi.
      Purifie-moi de mon péché avec l’hysope, pour que je sois pur;
      lave-moi, pour que je sois plus blanc que la neige.
      Fais-moi entendre le son de l’allégresse et de la joie,
      pour que les os que tu as broyés se réjouissent.
      Détourne ton visage de mes péchés
      et efface toutes mes fautes.
      Crée en moi un cœur pur, ô Dieu,
      et mets en moi un esprit nouveau, ferme.
      Ne me chasse pas de ta présence ;
      ne m’enlève pas ton esprit saint.
      Redonne-moi la joie d’être sauvé par toi;
      éveille en moi la volonté de t’obéir.
      Je veux enseigner tes chemins aux transgresseurs,
      pour que les pécheurs reviennent à toi.
      Libère-moi de la culpabilité de meurtre, ô Dieu, mon Dieu sauveur,
      pour que ma langue puisse proclamer joyeusement ta justice.
      Ô Jéhovah, ouvre mes lèvres
      pour que ma bouche proclame ta louange.
      Car tu ne veux pas de sacrifices — autrement, j’en donnerais ;
      tu ne prends pas plaisir aux holocaustes.
      Le sacrifice qui plaît à Dieu, c’est un esprit brisé ;
      un cœur brisé et broyé, ô Dieu, tu ne le rejetteras pas.
      Dans ta bienveillance, agis pour le bien de Sion ;
      bâtis les murailles de Jérusalem.
      Alors tu prendras plaisir aux sacrifices de justice,
      aux holocaustes et aux offrandes totales ;
      alors on offrira des taureaux sur ton autel.

      Hello to all my Spiritual Brothers and Sisters! I haven't been on here in a while, because as of August 17, 2021, I moved to Commerce, Texas! I was on the Commerce Housing Authority Waiting list since 2019!  I was selected to receive my one bedroom apartment, with my Chihuahua, with my precious Babyboy, who is now 16 years old! and I signed my lease on August 5, 2021, and had my gas turned on! We have a very small Congregation of 71 publishers, including me!  I haven't been to our beautiful Kingdomhall yet, but I did take some photos of the outside of it! I'm praying that we are one of the Congregations, chosen to start attending in person, our pilot meetings that many countries are now attending! Puerto Rico, Chile, and Australia are a few chosen right now! There's three Shirley's in my Congregation!  Two elderly sisters, one is white, she's No.1 , and another  elderly sister who is black, she's No.2, and I'm ShirleyL3!  One sister lovingly named me that! I feel special now! I haven't been given an assignment yet, but soon I will!  I really enjoyed our "POWERFUL by FAITH" Regional Convention so much!  We needed all the Spiritual Encouragement which focused on all of us! Also, all those beautiful videos, and the real life experiences! July 29, 1972, was my baptism date! 49 years now, serving Jehovah! I was 15 when I dedicated my life to serve Jehovah! I'm 64 years young now, and still faithfully serving Jehovah! I do telephone witnessing now! Which lots of people hang up on me, but I'm used to it now! All that matters is that I'm giving Jehovah my best!  I'm so excited about our Special Campaign now!  Only Jehovah reads hearts!  Hopefully lots of people will show some interest!  This year 2021 is almost over! I received both doses of Moderna, and have to wait till I turn 65 in May, to receive my Booster shot! We lost over 17, 000 brothers and sisters to Covid-19! My prayers are with them and their families! Soon, as Jehovah has promised, they will welcome their loved ones back in their lives, during the resurrection! I love it here so much, everyone is very friendly! I just love my Congregation too! I hope everyone makes their personal decision to get vaccinated! Also I hope everyone has a great rest of 2021! Let's see what Jehovah has in store for us in 2022! Were having our Circuit Assembly on November 27, 2021!  Take care of yourselves, be safe, and always trust in Jehovah!!!  Have a great weekend everybody, agape love, Sister Shirley Ann Lowery!
