Dear Readers,
I am going to leave this post as a constant feature at the top of this Main Page.
All new posts will be entered below it.
My reason is because recent posts have advanced in spiritual depth, and those who are new to this site, find it difficult to perceive the scriptural basis for what is currently taught.

I request and advise that all cited scriptures be read. Most of your learning will occur while reading the cited scriptures. They will pop up for you, if you place your cursor over them. All the beneficial information the posts contain, is within the cited scriptures. Much of the theme and thrust of the article, will be found, only in the scriptures. I leave many holes around my own words, which can only be filled and bridged by the scriptures contained. If you do not read them, you have missed the main points.
I realize that following this suggestion, takes time.
I hope you take your time, perhaps reading one post in sections, so that all scriptures can be read, at the same time, along with the sentence that surrounds them.
You can pace yourself, and the sessions you devote to one article. Please consider structuring your studies in this way,
because reading my words only, is a sad waste of both of our time.

There are currently, almost 700 posts and 57 articles.
Here is a link, to make an easy perusal of all the Main Page posts, if you wish to find a topic of interest: (https://www.google.com.au/search?q=site:blogspot.com+4womaninthewilderness&biw=1366&bih=643&tbm=nws&source=lnms&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwietPKgjrvKAhWJHT4KHV-qCMwQ_AUICigE&dpr=1#q=site:blogspot.com+4womaninthewilderness).

The emphasis of the 57 blog articles [found in my profile (https://www.blogger.com/profile/13281232149590681155)],
is to introduce the foundation of what follows here on the Main Page, with solid scriptural backing. It is not possible for each advancing post, to repeat each foundation for the topic at hand. This can give some the impression, that the current topic has no basis in scripture, even though this conclusion is usually a result of inadequate preparation.

This might be illustrated in any formal schooling. Those who have advanced through all the basics, already understand and assume many things they have already tested, examined, learned, and accepted as fact. They are able to move forward to learn the more complex truths which are based upon the previously accepted foundation.
For those who enter an advanced class without having first established the fundamentals;
confusion, doubt, and rejection of assertions as unproven, result.

This is because the founding scriptural truths of every post, will not usually be discussed again if that information has already has been covered. We must advance in order to mature. This advancement is what the Main Page is for. Please make full use of the searchbox when needed.

Occasionally, the background to a new topic will need it's foundation established first. This is when a new blog article, located at a different webpage, and listed in my profile, will be released, and notice given on this Main Page.

If you are new to this site, I strongly suggest first reading the list of articles to the upper right (they are links to click on), as well as other articles contained in my profile, and listed in the Directory Link: https://www.blogger.com/profile/13281232149590681155.
These readings should give you the foundation you need, in order to more fully understand current posts, and have assurance about the deeper interpretation and application of God's Word, which is progressively posted here.

If you do not speak and read English, and have translated this information (translator at the top right side of this page);
the pop up scriptures should also work for you in your own language. You will first see the English. If you wait a few seconds after it pops up, the scripture will translate into your language. I also welcome you to post comments. You can do so, by submitting your comment to
Google Translate tool : https://translate.google.com/
from your language, into English.
You can then copy and paste the English translation to the comment section.
You can also use the Google Translate tool, to submit English comments and replies, and read them in your own language.

For ANY question which arises or remains, during or after your study;
there is a contact form, also within the right column here. Please feel welcomed to use it. It is more constructive for you to have your question satisfied. I will be able to refer you to the appropriate material, or I will answer you directly. There are also others who have studied extensively, who may also be available to assist you.
If you speak a language other than English, please submit your question in your own language, and tell me what language it is in the first part of your message. Try to use the most simple and direct words available. I will have it translated myself.

To do a search of a specific topic about which I have written, there is a search box to the right. Enter/type your subject or scripture in the empty question box. Then click on the blue box Search. This should return relevant results. If those results are inadequate, please contact me (by means of the "contact" form to the right) for information tailored to your individual need.
  If you are searching a scripture, rather than a subject;
consider also searching that scripture's cross reference.
In other words, if you want information about Mark13:8; also consider searching Matt.24:7,8;
because I may have written about that scriptural subject, using Matt.24:7,8 instead of Mark13:8.

One of our readers told me this helpful tip about search results...
"If you press "control" (ctrl) then press "F" at the same time, this function will highlight the words on the page that you are searching."
When I tried this, I first went into one of the result links,
and then pressed "ctrl" and the letter "f".
In the top right, another little search box appeared.
I put my same search word(s) (or scriptural verse) in that new search box.
After clicking "enter", that search word(s) (or Bible verses) were highlighted on my result page.
I would appreciate feedback from readers, about how this works (or does not work) for you,
or if you need more help.

If you use a reader digest site, such as Feedspot, I ask that you come to this site directly to read.
Such digest sites will not update edits and additions.
By visiting this site directly and reading where the work was done,
your visit counts toward making the site available to others in search engine results.
Every time a search result ends in another visit here, the Google rating improves, along with the sites visibility to new searchers.

We live during a time of revelation. New concepts and interpretations are becoming unveiled. Many of these things are deeper and more complex than what we have previously known. Many run contrary to the Satanic deceptions to which we all subscribed, and which have become deeply entrenched within our perceptions. These doctrines must be overturned with great care and power, which only by a careful and intense scriptural study, can this be done for us. This requires an attentive study of the basics, before being prepared for present releases. But most importantly, it requires the grace of God, and supplication in prayer.
As always, if any questions arise, there is a contact form on the right side of this page.

Please enter the site by a direct search for "pearl doxsey", or for "4womaninthewilderness",
unless the URL is saved on your PC.
Please do not enter the site repeatedly through one post, or by searching on a search engine repeatedly for the same subject or post. When this is done, it adversely affects the accurate count of post readings, which keeps the list of "Popular posts of the Month" from refreshing. Other topics of reader interest are then crowded off the list of highlighted links. It is best to keep that list fresh, for the interest of new readers and availability of new topics.

If you appreciate what you are learning here, and are endeavoring to live in harmony with the scriptural direction expressed;
you are welcomed to join the forum, for support.

I have deep appreciation for the many expressions I receive from readers, and hope that you will send me feedback and any suggestions for improving the reading experience. Please feel welcomed to use the contact form in the right side column of this page.
If you believe the scriptural things you learn here;
please share those scriptures and the truth they reveal, with others.
This can be done on the various internet forums which cater especially to "Jehovah's Witness" ideology, mindset, and experience.

May God continue to answer our sincere requests for heavenly bread (Matt.6:11; John 6:27,35,51,58,55; 14:21,6; Rev.2:17), which we receive through the true vine, and his faithful branches (John15:4,5,8; 1Cor.4:1).
May God bless all of you with spirit and truth (John 4:23-24), and the eternal blessing to follow for those who worship according to them
(John 8:31; 6:63; 2John 1:9).
Love in Christ,

Who is your Master ?

This post is for educational purposes, by examining a quote from a recent publication...

By a statement in the Jan.18 Watchtower magazine; ......
"In the days leading up to the Memorial, we can set aside time to examine prayerfully and carefully our personal relationship with Jehovah. How can we do that? By ‘testing whether we are in the faith.’ To do that, we do well to ask ourselves: ‘Do I really believe that I am part of the only organization that Jehovah has approved to accomplish his will?".......
http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/02/jehovahs-genuine-mountain.html
In effect, does not this statement equate being an obedient slave of the "Watchtower", with being "in the faith"? (1Cor.7:23; Rom.6:16; Gal.1:10)
The "faith" being spoken of in the scripture they quote (2Cor.13:5), is according to the Bible,  the faith provided by the teaching of Jesus Christ (Rom.3:22; 8:1; Phil.3:8-9; Matt.7:24-27; Eph.2:20)
... *not a faith rooted in the vacillating doctrine of the Organization. Our "testing" properly occurs, when we are building our faith on the words of Christ.... not the present releases or bound volumes of the doctrines of men.
I hope all will intensely consider, that this statement by the WT, 
is crystallized in the symbolic meaning of Rev.13:16. 
Deut.11:18 conveys the interpretation of that verse. There it tells us, that we receive a symbolic mark on our forehead, by the spiritual master of our faith (Rev.7:3). We are either slaves of God's truths, or slaves of the doctrines of men (666), which is idolatry. Making that choice (Joel 3:14; 2:32; Luke17:30-32; Rev.18:4), means a decision between life, or death (Rom.6:16).

Heavens - Earth - Sea | The Authority of Christ

At Matt.28:18, Jesus said; 
"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.".

"And God subjected everything under his feet and appointed him as head **over everything for the church**, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all" (Eph.2:22-23). 
(1Cor.3:16; 1Pet.2:5; 1Cor.12:17)
The heaven and earth over which Jesus has received authority, are symbolic and not physical. Heaven and earth, are not the sea, which is also symbolic. The symbolic sea is the realm of Satan (Isa.57:20).
Earth, comes from the Greek word "Gae", which more accurately means "land".. an owned plot of land... a homeland. 
https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?t=kjv&strongs=g1093
God has such a "field under cultivation" where he makes his home, such as referred to in Rev.10:2; 1Cor.3:9; Luke 8:15 and John15:1; 14:23.

The heaven and earth are being sorted, into a heaven and earth that will pass away, or a new heavens and earth, that will remain forever... depending upon a choice of faithfulness or unfaithfulness (2Pet.3:7,13). The heavens are where God is king... his throne. The earth is his footstool... willing subjects to God's authority (Acts7:49).
Neither the heaven nor earth, are the sea belonging to Satan, which will fully pass away (Rev.21:1)

The point of these scriptures, is that the dominion of God and Christ, are not the dominion of Satan. The physical world is not what the BIble is talking about, when it speaks in symbolic terms of the heavens, earth, and sea.
Jesus was given authority as a king when on earth, just as he stated at Matt.28:18. He rules until all the unfaithful disciples, who have made themselves enemies of Christ, are subdued under his feet..... (Matt.26:64; Ps.110:2; 1Cor.15:25)
.....through the clouds of heaven/Zion (Heb.12:1; Matt.26:64; Jude 1:14; Ps.110:2; Rev.2:26-27; Jer.51:20; Hosea6:5).
The physical creation has been made subject to Satan (Luke4:6; John19:11).

All the chosen ones, who choose to imitate Satan, are twice dead, having chosen the Destroyer again as their father, inheriting sin and second death. 
Those who imitate and follow the example and path of Jesus, are given a new birth, a spiritual one. They are born again of spirit and endure in faithfulness, to receive righteousness and life. 
Those two groups are the ones over which, Jesus has been given authority... not over Satan's fallen creation. Those rightly disposed for everlasting life, are being gathered into the storehouse of Jesus Christ. The rest are condemned by the "fire" of God's word of judgment (Jer.23:29; 5:14; Rev.11:3,5; 20:9; 2Pet.3:7). 
The unfaithful are abandoned, to the sin and death they have chosen, and the dominion of the one who holds the power of death within his dominion (Heb.2:14).

Armageddon is the conclusion of this sorting harvest. Those under the authority of Christ who belong to heaven.....
(Eph.2:6; Heb.12:22-23; Luke10:20; Rev.17:14; 19:14,8) 
.....battle at his side, against the agents of falsehood (1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13-16; 17:14; 12:10-11; 2Cor.10:3-5)

So yes... all authority in "heaven" and on "earth" is given to Christ, to discipline, refine, teach, and judge as faithful, or not (Mark13:33-37; Matt.25:14-15; 12:36; Rom.2:6-8; John12:48). 

All Jesus slaves (the heavens and earth), have a day of accounting with him. The unfaithful "heavens" and "earth", will burn up with "fire". The faithful heavens will remain forever... and the "sea" will be no more. But to really understand what Matt.28:18 means, we must have spiritual discernment according to interpretation by scripture.

Who is the Destroyer ?

A QUESTION:

After reading the post on Armageddon...(https://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2018/01/armageddon.html), 
...it does make sense that Armageddon would be symbolic, which is in keeping with our loving creator. However when discussing this with the family today, we wondered about times in the Hebrew Scriptures when God caused the destruction of many men, women and children, such as the flood, the final plague on the Egyptian's firstborn, Sodom and Gomorrah as well as all the Israelite wars against enemy nations while settling the promised land etc. How are we to reconcile these events?
-  -  -  -  -  -  -
MY REPLY:

Please consider what happened in Eden, because there we learn how God handles sin. Did God kill Adam and Eve? No. But He did warn them, that death would be the result of their wrong choice. How would that death come about? Well, first, they would choose to make Satan their father and god. How did that happen? We are told in the Bible, that we are slaves to whatever we obey (Rom.6:16-17)----

"16 Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from your heart the pattern of teaching that has now claimed your allegiance."

How does this scripture apply to what happened in Eden? When Adam and Eve turned to Satan for guidance, and obeyed that guidance, they became Satan's obedient slaves, much as a child would obey his father. By eating fruit from a forbidden source, they left off taking their guidance (and obedience) from God as their father. They became children of sin and death. How? Satan, is the father of both, sin and death (Heb.2:14; John8:44; Rev.9:11). 

If we become his children, we come under his dominion of both, sin and death. Rom.6:17 quoted above, tells us that when we loyally obey the "pattern of teaching" from God, we become His slaves, we are granted righteousness and life, rather than being slaves to sin and death.

Can you see from all this, that our choice to imitate and obey Satan as father, results in being under the power of his dominion (much as a child put into a household under Satan)? When under Satanic authority, we are subject to his decisions. What befalls those under Satanic authority and dominion? Do you see from the Bible, that the consignment and destination of those belonging to Satan, is destruction and death?
God cannot righteously protect and defend... those who have chosen of their own free will, to disobey God as Father... and have chosen Satan... the provider and enticer of deceptive and corrupt desires, that end in death (James1:14-15).

If so, then we can return to your questions....
God is ultimately responsible for universal justice. Under that righteous umbrella of divine justice, God either chooses to act, or to not act... to protect, or not protect, to guard against the wicked one, or to surrender to the wicked one. 
Whatever God's decision, it always respects our free will, just as in Eden. But after we have chosen our god and father, it is a righteous part of God's justice that we do, reap what we sow. We cannot change our mind, after we have "eaten the fruit" and acted out our sin.

As we learned by the accounts of Job and Jesus, even righteous ones can be subjected to Satanic test, and suffer his cruelty. But after proving loyal and faithful to God, God is justified in limiting what Satan can do. Not so, with those who have chosen Satan as father, who have rejected God's grace and guidance. In doing so, they have also forfeited God's protection.

So now, what of executions of death, that resulted from God's justice in BIble history? Did God deviate from what we have learned in the foregoing scriptures? Was it God Himself, that caused the deaths of the wicked?
There are two ways of answering this question.
Since God is the One who ultimately decides, what He allows to happen, then I suppose with that viewpoint... God is responsible for everything, isn't He? 
But if we concur with God's righteous sense of Justice... we accept that some of the things God allows to befall the wicked, who have exercised their free will to choose rebellion, are deserved, and that it is an exercise of God's righteousness, in allowing them to reap what they have sown.

Again... what of Bible history, and it's accounts of the executions of the wicked. Was it God allowing people to reap destruction from their chosen father?... or was it God, robbing Satan of his children.... taking Satan's children away from Satan, and then killing them?

I will use, one of your chosen examples to shed light on the answer to that question... that of the execution of the firstborn in Egypt. ---

God told His people His decision. See if you agree that it was Justice. 
God told His people, that if any desired God's protection, that they should paint the blood of a lamb on their doorposts. 
As God said... 
"13 The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt." (Ex.12:13)
Although at the end of that verse, it sounds like God is doing the "striking"/destroying, could this mean that it is God, who is merely responsible for, allowing it?
Go down to verse 23---
"23 When the Lord goes through the land to strike down the Egyptians, he will see the blood on the top and sides of the doorframe and will pass over that doorway, and **He will not permit the destroyer to enter your houses and strike you down.**"
We learn from verse 23, that God is setting a limit, based upon a household's obedience to God's instructions. Do you see that? 
Do you see, that it is "the destroyer" that enters a disobedient house, and does the "striking down"? 
Do you see God's justice at work... and do you see the Devil at work? 
It is crucial, that we discern the distinction between the works of God (protector of the obedient) and the works of the Devil (to destroy the unprotected).

God is candid and forthcoming. He does not shrink from His part, and often takes credit for the destruction of the wicked, ---because it is God who exercises His justice and power, when He decides in all righteousness, what each person should reap. He makes certain, that we reap what we have sown. His righteous justice will always dominate, because He is, a God of righteous justice, and deserves to be credited and praised for being such. 
To know Him, is to understand His justice, and not to ascribe to Him or Jesus Christ the works of the Devil. Neither God nor Jesus, are murderers. They are Judges, and for this reason, we rightly fear them, and strive to gain their approval. If we abandon them as Fathers, we deserve the treatment meted out by the Destroyer... 
(https://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2016/11/who-is-destroyer.html)
...whose dominion and household, we freely chose.
"7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. Whatever a man sows, he will reap in return. 8 The one who sows to please his flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; but the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life." (Gal.6:7-8).
"10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." (John10:10)
I am confident that you would benefit from reading this post:

Who is the False Prophet who gives breath to the image of the Beast ?

From Rev.19:20...
"The beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image."
What signs did the false prophet perform, on the Beasts' behalf?
Rev.13:14-17 tells us...
"14 Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to ***set up an image*** in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15 The second beast was given power to ***give breath to the image of the first beast***, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name."

The false prophet orders the inhabitants of the earth, to set up an idol that represents the beast. It "gives breath" to that image, so that the Beast can execute, any who refuse to worship its' image. Consequently, other symbolic restraints are also imposed and enforced.
How does the Bible itself interpret the meaning of giving the Image/Idol of the Beast, "breath"? 
John20:21-23 tells us:
"21 Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” 22 And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.”

Receiving breath, is receiving spirit... being sent forth by Christ (John20:21; 13:20), and being given the power to forgive (or not forgive) sins (John20:23; 1Cor.6:1-3; Matt.18:18). 
At Rev.13:7, we are also told, that this alliance between the false prophet and it's Beast, "conquers the holy ones". (Rev.13:10; Luke21:24; Dan.8:12; Rev.11:2; Matt.5:13).
(https://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/09/trample-how-does-it-happen.html)
Do we see any "Beast"... any identity or group, being imbued with an image of such authority, by a false prophet?
At John20:21-23, we saw that Jesus gave spiritual authority and power, to his anointed chosen priests (Luke10:19; Mal.2:7; Rev.1:5-6; 5:9-10; 1Pet.2:5). But who is it that actually appears to be authorized to exercise the authority and power of God's priesthood, today... even over the anointed Chosen? What image today, seems "spirit-directed" and as a result, the tangible representatives and enforcers of worship toward that image, can pass the judgment of spiritual life or death/forgive or not forgive sin...
(over those who refuse to accept that image as being spirit-directed), 
...even over the chosen ones? (2Thess.2:4; Mark13:14; John16:2)
(Rom.2:28-29; Rev.2:9)

Are you awake to recognizing the fulfillment of this prophecy?
It is in plain site, among "Jehovah's Witnesses".

I do hope that those interested, will learn more about Rev.13:14-17. The Bible's own interpretation of those verses are shocking to those under the influence of the harlots wine/wormwood.

The Living Idol

From Rev.19:20...
 "The beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image."
What signs did the false prophet perform, on the Beasts' behalf?
Rev.13:14-17 tells us...
"14 Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to ***set up an image*** in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15 The second beast was given power to ***give breath to the image of the first beast***, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image, to be killed. 16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, (LINK) 17 so that they could not buy or sell (LINK) unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number (LINK) of its name."

The false prophet orders the inhabitants of the earth, to set up an idol that represents the beast. It "gives breath" to that image, so that the Beast can execute, any who refuse to worship its' image. Consequently,  other symbolic restraints are also imposed and enforced.
How does the Bible itself interpret the meaning, of giving the Image/Idol of the Beast, "breath"? 
John20:21-23 tells us:
"21 Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” 22 And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.”

Receiving breath, is receiving spirit. Those to whom Jesus gives holy spirit, are being sent forth to work for Christ, and are given the power to forgive (or not forgive) sins. 
At Rev.13:7, we are also told, that this alliance between the false prophet and it's Beast, "conquers the holy ones".

Do we see any "Beast"... any identity or group, whose image is being imbued with a facade of spirit-authority and power, by a false prophet?
At John20:21-23, we saw that Jesus gave holy spirit to his anointed chosen ones, bestowing on them a commission to teach truth, and authority over the forgiveness of sin (John20:23; 1Cor.6:2-3; Matt.18:18). 
But who is it that is actually exercising that authority and power today... even over the anointed Chosen? 
What image today, by declaration of a prophet, seems "spirit-directed", and as a result, the tangible representatives and enforcers of worship toward that image, can pass the judgment of spiritual life or death...
     (over those who refuse to accept that image as being spirit-directed),

I do hope that those interested, will learn more about Rev.13:14-17. The Bible's own interpretation of those verses are shocking, and fulfillment of  the details of that interpretation, are in plain sight.

Armageddon

The Bible itself explains Armageddon. 
The idea that it means an execution by God, by means of literal fire, is an idea that comes from man... who are sourcing their understanding by human reasoning, rather than scripture (Jer.23:29; 20:9; 5:14; Rev.11:5; Matt.10:20). 
Armageddon is explained, at Rev.16:13-16. 
That battle is also talked about in other verses, which add to our knowledge about that battle (Rev.9:7,9; 20:8; 12:7,17; 13:7; 17:14; 19:19). 
If you read Rev.16:13-16, you will see that three "demonic spirits"/utterances/teachings... that "look like frogs" are what causes "kings" to gather for that battle. It causes the alliance of "Gog and Magog", to "surround" (Luke21:20) the "camp of the holy ones" (Rev.20:7-9). So, the battle causes those who are lead by deceptive demonic teachings (three frog-like expressions/666), to come up against the holy ones... the "called, chosen, and faithful", along with Jesus (Rev.17:14; 19:11,14; Eph.2:6).

(https://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/search?q=thousand+years+when)
It is a spiritual battle (Eph.6:10-17)...
...against the powers of deception. 
The weapons used, include the truths of Christ... the scriptures and spirit, which is our sword (Heb.4:12; Eph.6:17; 2Thess.2:8; Rev.2:16; 19:11,15). 

The Bible itself makes clear, that Armageddon is a spiritual battle, between the liar, Satan (John8:44; 2Cor.4:4; 1Tim.4:1)...
...and his forces of lying doctrines and his deceptive teachings... 
against the truths of Jesus Christ and all those who preach and defend them (messengers/"angels") (https://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/search?q=messenger+angel). 
That war has existed throughout the ages (Gen.3:15; Rev.12:17)...
...but it does have a final battle in the time of the end, and that final battle is called, Armageddon.

" Hold on to what you have "

Rev.3:11 reads;
"I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown."

What is it, that we have, which we must hold on to? What is it, that, if we do not hold on to it, will cause us to lose our crown? What is our "crown"?

Please consider these scriptures:
Rev.12:17 "Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and **hold fast their testimony about Jesus.**

Rev.19:10 "And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For **the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of PROPHECY.”**

Rev.2:25 "Nevertheless, hold fast to what you have until I come. 26 And to the one who is victorious and **continues in My work until the end**, I will give authority over the nations. 27He will rule them with an iron scepter and shatter them like pottery—just as I have received authority from My Father."

Hosea 6:5 "Therefore I have shattered them in pieces by the PROPHETS; I have slain them by the words of My mouth; And the judgments on you are like the light that goes forth. 

Matt.10:20 "for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you."

Jer.23:29 "Is not My word like FIRE?" declares the LORD, "and like a hammer which shatters a rock to pieces?"

Rev.11:2,5
"And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will PROPHESY for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.” 5 If anyone tries to harm them, FIRE comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. This is how anyone who wants to harm them must die."
- - - - - - -
I hope that the foregoing scriptures make clear, that at Rev.3:11;
1. Jesus is speaking to his prophets
2. What they must "hold on" to, is their testimony about the message of Jesus... their prophesying about the events to soon unfold, which work is the will of Jesus for them to do.
3. The final prophets (and "woman's seed) are under attack by Satan.
4. Those who continue in their work of prophesying, will "smash" and consume by fire, their enemies (Those who seek to harm these prophets, and who defy their prophetic message). That smashing hammer and fire, IS, God's Words of prophetic truth, from Jesus, and by spirit.
6. Those prophets who tire out before the end and arrival of Jesus, and who let go of their assigned work, will lose their crown.
7. The "crown", given to those prophets who persevere to the end... is the life eternal, which God has promised, to those who love Him.
James 1:12 reads;
"12 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him."

Who Destroys God's Temple?

John2:19-- "Jesus answered, “Tear down this temple, and I will raise it up in three days.” Therefore the Jews said, “This temple took forty-six years to build, and will you raise it up in three days?”".
I was learning which scriptures go with the phrase, "Tear down this Temple". First the question came, "Who was Jesus talking to, and crediting with, tearing down the Temple in Jerusalem?" We know that it was torn down by the Gentile Romans in 70 CE, but is that the whole picture, of who was responsible for tearing it down?
After all, we know that God's true spiritual Temple today, is also torn down, with all it's living stones... scattered (during the Great Tribulation). We know that the reason why God allows this trampling to happen, is to discipline those who are acting in unfaithfulness, and so, they themselves are responsible for their own Temple being brought to the condition of, "not a stone upon a stone" (Matt.5:13; Rev.11:2).
Was that also the case, with who was responsible for tearing down the literal Temple in Jerusalem?
The scripture that came to me, was Prov.14:1. There is reads;
"The wise woman builds up her house,
but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down."
To go with that, is Matt.7:24-27; Prov.9:1; Isa.65:22
Matt.7:24-27:
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
---
The religious leaders were faced with the option of conforming their temple and it's worship on Christ, or to reject the arrival of God's chosen cornerstone and continue to rest the Temple on what, like shifting sand, was passing away. *It was they, who made the choice* to hold on to what was passing away, rather than the will of God, which was to believe in the one whom He sent forth.
---
Prov.9:1:
"Wisdom has built her house;
she has set up its seven pillars."
The "seven pillars" of our Mother, "Wisdom", are interpreted by Rev.3:12 and Rev.1:20
Her house is the spiritual Temple of God in heaven. It's kings and priests will inherit their Temple, forever. "Never again will they leave it" (Rev.3:12). It will never be torn down, because they chose to build it on the rock and cornerstone of their father, and their mother of wisdom. Their house, is built up by their own hands, and will never be torn down.
---
Isa.65:22:
"No longer will they *build houses* and others live in them,
or plant and others eat.
For as the days of a tree,
so will be the days of my people;
*my chosen ones will long enjoy
the work of their hands.*
---
"The wise woman builds up her house,
but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down." (Prov.14:1)
---
So again we see the choice, to use one's hands to build up our Temple of worship upon the approved foundation, and enjoy that work of our hands...
or, to tear down with our own hands, our house and Temple of worship, by basing it on earthly treasures.
1Cor.3:16-17
It was the Jewish leader themselves, who tore down their own house, by their rejection of the cornerstone, and New Jerusalem above... the mother of WIsdom.
It was those leaders whom Jesus was addressing, at John 2:19.
God would not have allowed the Temple of the faithful to be torn down by Gentiles (either then, or now), if they had sought out the true foundation, and had been loyal to it. God will have a Temple to praise Him, whether men choose to be faithful or not...
"Tear down this Temple, and I will raise it up in three days." (John 2:19)
We too have the choice before us, as do the leaders of the WT. Upon which foundation, do they choose to build their house?
If it is not based upon the cornerstone, the 12 foundation stones, and all the living stones of God's priesthood of saints (1Pet.2:5,9)...
then it will collapse and be torn down, by their own doing.
Matt.23:7 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing. 38 Look, your house is left to you desolated."
[For those of you who may believe that the Temple and Body being raised at John2:19, was Jesus literal body of flesh... please consider the scriptures in this article: (https://pearl-raiseitup.blogspot.com)] 
Note: Jesus raises up the new Temple (John2:19).
Jesus did not raise up his Body of flesh. God did. (Acts2:32; Rom.10:7; 8:11)
(Zech.4:8-9; Eph.2:20-22,10; 1Pet.2:5; Rev.1:5-6; 5:9-10)

Service

How do the scriptures speak of what we do for/give to, God? (Prov.19:17).
Matt.6:3 "But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing".
No distinction is made there, about the giving being material or spiritual. How does that compare to the "buying and selling" of spiritual food, in exchange for one's obedient works and conformation to the organization's "arrangements" and "theocratic orderliness"? (Isa.55:1-2; John6:27; Rev.3:18; 13:17; Isa.28:10;)
How does Matt.6:3, compare to the list of the names of the pioneers, posted on the bulletin board?... or the requisites for "moving up" the ladder within the hierarchy of the organization?
James2: "2 My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. 2 For if a man wearing a gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly, and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in, 3 and if you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and say, “You sit here in a good place,” while you say to the poor man, “You stand over there,” or, “Sit down at my feet,” 4 have you not then made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?"
Are we to think that this principle applies only in a physical way, and not in a spiritual way also? If causing distinctions is evil over such mundane things as clothing... would not causing distinctions over a showy display of one's devotion to God, be all the more evil? (See Matt.6:5).
When a Circuit Overseer visits a congregation, there are "special meetings" for pioneers. Attendance at those meetings, is considered a "privilege". Yes... though the information discussed could benefit any so-called "publisher"... such distinctions (including the "Pioneer Book" and "Pioneer Service School"), are among the perks, which those who submit to this man-made system of spiritual class distinction, are rewarded with. But as Jesus said... those who seek the approval of man rather than of God, are "having their reward in full" (John5:44; Matt.6:5).
Mark12: "41 And Jesus sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the offering box. Many rich people put in large sums. 42 And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which make a penny. 43 And he called his disciples to him and said to them, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box. 44 For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.”
Does Jesus and his Father look at how many hours of field service are on each one's service report? Do They make appraisals, according to how men make judgments and distinctions? (See Isa.55:8-9)
In contrast to the evil and unkind judgments made by those who are the wicked,
God can read the heart, which none of the wicked may do.
Clearly, God sees the devotion, love, and loyalty toward God and neighbor, that each of us feels and expresses, according to our own ability and capacity. Clearly, we are not judged by God on the physical basis of what can be measured (or recorded and reported), by men. Such a wicked religious system is a worldly travesty of worship, and according to God's Word, is not of God.
Frankly stated, it is no one's business but our own, what gifts we dedicate to our heavenly Father. Jesus said that what we have received free, we freely give. No human agent should reach into that sacrifice for God, to impose a spiritual tax or tariff, which is exactly what the many arrangements of the organization, do impose.
Otherwise... if we subject ourselves to become slaves to a spiritual commerce set up by men, we become slaves, to men. The spiritual devastation which results, was expressed by apostle Paul...
"Is it, in fact, men I am now trying to persuade or God? Or am I seeking to please men? If I were yet pleasing men, *I would not be Christ’s slave.*" (Gal.1:10).
We learn from God's own Word, about the sacrifices that He is pleased with.
Three scriptures come to mind... 2Cor.9:7-13; 8:11-12; Philemon 1:14.
They contain the lesson that our gift is decided in our own heart, between us and God alone. No compulsion should be felt, but our gift is rooted in love and joy. God then blesses our charitable work, by supplying all we need to continue in it, while we also reap abundant blessing for ourselves. Through such a relationship with God's truth and the life that results, all, are refreshed, sustained, and built up. There is no sense of burden, comparison, competition, or failure. Such things come from the wicked one, and those who assist Satan to shackle men with a bondage to Idols.
Rules, standards, human expectations, and counting, do not serve the will, truth, or purpose of God (Matt.15:9; Mark7:13).
Those things only serve the unlawful, worldly power and desires, of men, and the purpose of Satan.
"You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John8:32)

How can we obey the Bible's command to gather, after leaving the "Watchtower"?

You may recall prophecies about the return of Christ, where he gathers people "from the 4 winds, from one extremity of the heavens to the other extremity" (Matt.24:31). Other prophecies tell us that those "leaving the city" will be invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb (Matt.22:8-10; Rev.19:9).
We are given the idea, that there will be a gathering from all over, collecting together those who might accept an invitation to spiritual food. Where that food is located, is where those with insight, will gather (Luke17:37; Rev.11:3,9).
Prophecy also tells us, that an urgent need will arise, to flee a city (Rev.18:4; Luke17:26-37).
A similar situation occurred in the first century, before the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans, in 70CE. Christians who obeyed Jesus' warning, did flee to the "Judean Hills/wilderness" (Matt.24:15-16).
There was no guarantee that they would find those of like-faith, collected into a cohesive, organized, comfortable group. Yet they still obeyed the command to flee, and despite being scattered, they were fed by those whom Christ assigned to feed them (see Acts8:1,4; James1:1; 1Pet.1:1; Rev.1:9-11
Today, we have another fulfillment of the end of a covenant, and the harvest and segregation of both the good/faithful/"wheat", and disobedient/"weeds"/"chaff", based upon one's regard for that divine covenant. At each covenant's conclusion, there comes a destruction of those who were unfaithful to it.
We too, must flee the unfaithful "City".
We too, discern a "disgusting thing/abomination, standing in the holy place/standing where it does not belong, which is causing desolation" to God's faithful nation (Matt.24:15; Mark13:13-14; 2Thess.2:4; Rev.11:2; 13:4,7-8).
We too, must Flee the empire of the unfaithful (Rev.18:4) and go to the mountains of Israel for sustenance (Eze.36:8; Matt.5:14).
Despite our also being scattered, we can communicate by means of the internet. This offers not only the written words of our brethren, but also the ability to video chat, to see and hear members of our family of faith. We are fully able to heed Heb.10:24-25, by giving comfort and encouragement, sharing our excitement about, and insights into, what we are learning, and even working together in this final ministry. (Matt.22:8-10; Rev.22:17; Matt.10:23).
