Where is the "True Religion" -- Christ's Body -- God's Temple?



John4:21 
"Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. 22 You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. 23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Heb.10:14 
"For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified. 15 But the Holy Spirit also witnesses to us; for after He had said before, 16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them," 17 then He adds, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”

John2:18 
"So the Jews answered and said to Him, “What sign do You show to us, since You do these things?” 19 Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” 20 Then the Jews said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?” 21 But He was speaking of the temple of His body. 22 Therefore, when He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this to them; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said.”

Jesus was not speaking here of his body of flesh. He said “in three days, *I* will raise it up”. Jesus did not raise up his own body of flesh. (see Rom.10:7,9; Acts 2:32). 
Clearly, it was God who raised Christ from the dead. What “body” and “temple” then, did Jesus himself raise by his death and resurrection? 
The scriptures are clear, that by Jesus’ ransom (Rev.5:9,10), he raised up the anointed (messianic/chosen ones) temple (1Cor.3:16; 1Pet.2:5,9; Eph.2:22,21,20; Ps.118:22; John2:19,21; 1Cor.12:27) of his body of 144000 (2Cor.1:21,22; Rev.7:4,3; 14:1), the united body of which, each Chosen one, is a member (1Cor.12:12,13,14,20,27). 

This is the very same temple, where the Father is worshiped in “Spirit and Truth” (1Tim.3:15; 1Pet.2:5; 1Cor.3:16; 2Cor.6:16; 1Cor.6:19); those of the New Covenant who have God’s laws written on their hearts (Heb.10:16; Deut.6:6,8; Rev.14:1). This is the new place of worship, since the death of Christ. With his blood, he bought these chosen ones for God, to be God's priests (Rev.5:9,10), and to be Christ's "bride" (Eph.5:25; Rev.21:9,10).
These are the representatives of the “True Religion” here on earth (2Cor.5:20; 1Cor.4:1; Mal.2:7; John7:18,38; Rev.21:6; 22:17; 14:3,5).

Jesus did not describe this arrangement of worship as being organized by men into a "religious" organization or corporation (Acts 17:24; Heb.9:11; Eph.2:10), 
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2012/10/regarding-organized-religions.html)
but rather, described it as guided by Holy Spirit and Truth (John4:24; 3:8; 16:13,14) under Christ as Head (Eph.5:23). The anointed did not consult and obey, nor were they under the direction of, a "governing body" in Jerusalem (Gal.1:11,12,17,15,16,10; 5:1; 2:4; Rom.6:16; 1Cor.7:23; 2Cor.11:20; Rev.2:20; Col.3:24) or some other man-made hierarchy. They were and are, taught collectively by Holy Spirit (1John2:20,27; John7:38,39; 17:26; Luke 12:12; 21:14,15; Rev.11:5,3,4; Matt.10:27,20; John16:13,14,15; 6:45), through the arrangement of Christ's "body"/"temple" (John15:4,5; Eph.2:20,21,22; 1Pet.2:5,9; Mal.2:7), according to the various assignments of it's "parts" (Eph.4:11,12,13; 2:20,21; 1Cor.12:18,28,29,27; Eph.4:11,12). 
As a collective "body" under Christ as Head; it is anointed with spirit, and is thereby sustained by the working of spirit, within it (1John2:20,27; Eph.4:11,12; Rom.12:5; John13:14) (John15:4,5; Rom.11:17; 1Cor.12:6,7).

Paul confirms that he himself was lead directly by Holy Spirit, and not by an arrangement erected by men, at Gal.1:10,11,12,15,16,17,18,19,20; Acts 15:8,9,10,36,41; Acts 16:6,7; John16:13; 14:17,26.
For the "body of Christ", Jesus himself is the Head. As his "bride", all the members of his body submit to the arrangement of the parts, according to their order as arranged by Christ and God (Eph.4:11,12; 1Cor.12:28; Eph.4:14,15,16). 
In this way, order and peace are established within Christ's "body" of chosen ones (1Cor.14:12,22,26,29,32,33,37,38,40; 12:18,28; Rom.12:6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13).
The anointed priests are like branches attached to a vine / rootstock (John15:4,5; Rev.22:16; Rom.11:16). What they receive is sourced in Christ, not from men (John15:1,2,3,4,5,6,7,15,16; Eph.5:29; Rom.11:17,18,22; Col.2:2).

Jesus once described the individual members of his body, as "trees". This illustration applies well, because just as a grapevine and it's branches produce fruit (John15:5,8); these treesalso provide “fruit” as spiritual food [Matt.12:33,35; Luke 6:45; <(Heb.13:15; Hosea14:2); Matt.7:17,20; Jer.17:7,8; Ps.1:2,3; Rev.22:1,2; John7:38; Prov.4:23]. 
All the faithful fruitful ones, are dependent upon the sap/holy spirit/living water, coming from the throne/true vine/olive root (Col.2:7; Rom.11:17; John15:4,5; 1Cor.12:13; John 6:63; Luke 8:18). 
If Christ removes holy spirit from an erring chosen one, that tree dries up (Mark 11:14,20,21; Joel 1:12; Mark 4:25; John 15:2,6; Col.2:19; Eph.4:16,11,12).

Jesus described the fruit/teachings of the fine, true prophets, as being: SOURCED IN GOD’S WORD (John7:16,17,18; 8:47 a; John17:17; Matt.5:14; Ps.36:9; 1John1:5; Luke 11:35,36; John8:12; 1:4,5,14) and as PROMOTING THE GLORY/Righteousness OF GOD, not self-glory (Matt.6:33). This they could do, due to having God’s Laws written on their hearts, combined with the blessings of insight which Holy Spirit would grant them (1John2:20,27; 1Pet.2:9; Matt.13:11; 1Cor.2:12-14). They receive that spirit through their union with the Head (1Cor.6:17; 2:14; Eph.2:18; John17:23; 14:20) and the harmony with the whole "body" that would result. 
This Chosen Priesthood, serve within God’s spiritual Temple, the "body" of Christ (Rev.3:11,12; 5:10; 7:15; 22:3,4; Mal.2:7; 1Pet.2:5,9,10).

In more modern times, many of these anointed priests congregated together. They became organized. Of course, Satan was not going to leave their activities undisturbed (Matt.13:24,25,26,27,28; Isa.63:18; Rev.11:2; Luke 22:31). The faithful work of doing God’s will, would always be resisted and opposed; right within the midst of these priests (Acts 20:29,30; 1Tim.4:1; Matt.24:4,5,24,25; 7:15; Rev.13:11; 2Thess.2:4,9; 2Cor.11:12,13; Matt.13:30). Those who form an organized hierarchy outside the body of Christ, help Satan to resist, defy, and malign God's arrangement (Isa.1:21; 1Cor.6:15 B; Rev.17:2,1; 2:20; Rev.18:4; 2Cor.6:17)
("Who are the Kings of the Earth?").

Not all anointed will prove faithful (Matt.25:1,2; 22:14). 
Those who prove unfaithful, exchange love for their brothers and for truth, for worldly power and self-serving doctrines of men (John5:44; 1John3:10,11,13,14,15; Rev.17:6; 1John2:15; Rev.2:4; 2Thess.2:10,12; 1Cor.4:8; John7:16,18; Mark7:7; Rom.1:25). Those proving unfaithful, are the very ones who become proud, prominent, powerful, tyrannical, and abusive (Luke 16:8; 22:24,25,26,27; 1John4:20; 2:9,11; 3:10,15), and dominate their brothers to their injury (Ec.8:9). 
Where would anointed ones get such power? (Matt.4:8-10; Rev.9:1,3,7; 13:4,11,15)
These unfaithful leave their subjection to Christ, leave unity with the body of Christ as arranged by God, and ally themselves with the power of Gentiles (not anointed), instead (Jer.17:5; Dan.11:31). 
They betray their covenant with God [to have His laws on their heart -Jer.31:33; (*Deut.6:6,8; 11:18)], 
to enter a covenant with Satan 
[Jer.11:9,10,11; Rev.9:1,11; 13:1,4,11,12,15 (*Rev.13:16,17); Rev.17:1,3,5; Isa.28:15] (Link:666). 
They leave their confidence in the strength of God (Phil.4:13; Ps.18:2,3), for the worldly advantage and power that come from forming an alliance with those not anointed, and with them, create an Organization (LINK) (LINK-2)(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/02/jehovahs-genuine-mountain.html). 

This structural arrangement, (of unfaithful anointed heading up a non-anointed counterfeit priesthood), is a fabrication that stands in defiance of the authentic body/temple/priesthood of God, within which His spirit operates and dwells. It is a "disgusting thing" standing in a holy place...a "man of lawlessness" dominating the body of Christ, usurping Christ's headship over his Bride members.

(Not anointed--spiritual Gentiles --Rom.2:28,29) 
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/01/what-is-jew-what-is-gentile-answers-to.html)

(Jer.17:5,7,13; 11:3,10,11,12; Rev.6:16; 2Chron.32:8; Ps.118:8; Isa.2:22; 30:1; Rev.17:3,7).
This decision to dominate their brothers in Christ by means of the "muscle" of Gentiles ("Iron" -Link), changes their designation from a chaste virgin of Christ 
(2Cor.11:2; Rev.14:4,5; Eph.5:25,26,27; James 1:27; 1John2:15), 
to that of a harlot 
(Hosea 9:1; Jer.5:5; 2:20,19,21; 3:1,2; Isa.1:21; Eze.16:15)....
....from a vessel of truth and life 
(John7:38,39; 1Tim.4:16; 2Cor.4:6,7; Rev.22:17) 
to a vessel of deception and death 
(Jer.2:21; Isa.5:2,4; Deut.32:32,33,15,18,6,16; Rev.13:15,8; Jer.11:17; Rev.14:9,10,18,19; 8:10,11). 

Faithful anointed, are to have nothing to do with these unfaithful leaders (Ps.26:4; Isa.1:21; 1Cor.6:15; 10:21,22; 2Cor.6:16,17,18; Rev.18:4; 2Tim.3:5; Eph.5:11; 2Thess.3:6; Rom.16:17; Mark 13:14).
But not all anointed stay clear of these unfaithful leading harlots (Rev.17:1,2,18,13)
(kings of earth? --Rev.1:5,6; 5:10  (http://pearl-kingsofearth.blogspot.com/).
These too desire the stature which only inclusion within a worldly Gentile Organization can offer (Rev.17:2,12,13,17,18,16; 1John2:15; John17:16; 8:13,23,37,40,59,42; 15:18; Isa.66:5; John16:2; Matt.24:9,10,11; 10:22). 
The "world" into which Jesus came, was the unfaithful religious system of those in covenant with God. (Matt.15:24; Rom.1:16; Acts3:26) (John1:11; 3:19; 7:7; 8:44; Matt.23:33). 
Just as that part of Satan's "world" (which hated Jesus -John15:18,25), were those unfaithful among God's people...
So too, the unfaithful of God's people today, are also the "world" which hates the faithful 
(John15:18; 16:2; Acts 5:33; Luke 12:45; 1John4:20; 3:12; John7:7; Rev.11:7,10).
To be a genuine faithful ambassador of Christ, means to be rejected, despised and abandoned by that religious part of Satan's "world"...those who have rebelled against their covenant with God, which exact type of hatred and persecution, imitates the path of our Master, Christ (Rev.11:8; John15:18,20; Matt.10:24,25; 12:24; John16:20; 17:14; Matt.23:34; 1Cor.4:1,2,3,9,10,11,12,13; Heb.13:13; Matt.5:10,11,12; 1Pet.2:19,20,21,22,23).
The secular world did not hate Jesus (Luke23:4,14,15; Matt.27:23; John18:36; 19:4,6).
It is those whom the truth condemns, that hate the faithful (Mark 11:18; John7:1; 8:37,40; 11:53; 1John3:12; Jude 1:11; Rev.2:14,16; 2Thess.2:8,4; John3:20; Matt.24:9; 23:27,28,34,35; Rev.18:24; 17:6; Jer.51:49).
The knowledge of who it is that persecutes and "kills" Christ's faithful end-time slaves, must be used to guide our interpretation of Revelation's warring identities, if we hope to understand it accurately.

The “lawlessness” or, lack of Christ’s “law” of love displayed among the unfaithful anointed (John13:34; James 2:8; Matt.7:22,23; 24:12; 25:42,43,44,45,41), has manifested itself in the midst of the faithful chosen, right from the start (2Thess.2:7; 1Cor.4:8). It was prophesied to intensify in the last days (Matt.24:12; 7:23; 2Tim.3:1,5,7,13; 2Thess.2:8).

Yhwh aptly conveyed, that at the time of the end, when all would face judgment before God’s Throne (Rom.14:12; 2Cor.5:10; Matt.12:36), that there would be a people who would call themselves by His name (Jer.25:29,30; Rev.14:18,19). 
There are many detailed prophecies how this people would fare during God’s inspection and judgment 
(see pearl-winepress.blogspot.com)
and (pearl-disgustingthing.blogspot.com). 
All those prophetic details are becoming clearly manifest in association within the unfolding events of the Organization known as "Jehovah’s Witnesses". Those details include the faithful anointed alongside the unfaithful…the constant scenario and climate which has always existed for the Chosen (Matt.13:30; Gen.3:15). The details of Revelation's symbolic scenarios and symbolic identities are also being fulfilled in association with that religious mountain (Rev.8:8; Zech.4:7).

Because the parasitic anointed seek to garnish the blessing being received by the faithful, by exploiting, condemning, and yet capitalizing on their spiritual success and insight (Matt.25:8; Luke16:3; 13:24; John6:27; Matt.25:26); the “True Religion” will always be adulterated by those who cause divisions in the anointed body of Christ, and shame Jude 1:12,13,16,17,18,19. 

Yet part of proving faithful, eventually requires that the faithful divorce themselves from the unclean...those who have been spotted by the world (1Cor.6:15,16,17; Isa.63:18,19; Matt.24:15,16; 2Cor.6:17). But not before they give a warning. 
http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2012/08/here-is-answer-to-comment-that-was-left.html

http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/05/warning-letter.html

They will then be cast out, for this simple adherence to truth and subjection to Christ (Matt.10:16; 23:34; John16:2; Rev.11:2,3,7; 13:15; 17:6; 6:9,10,11; 12:10,11; Matt.10:16,17,18,19,20,21,22,32,33; Mark 8:35).

At the arrival of the Kingdom, those who exalt themselves will be humbled; and those who have humbled themselves and have continued to provide spiritual blessing in the midst of this persecution, will then be exalted (1Pet.5:6,10; James 4:10; Matt.23:12; 2Thess.2:4,8).
The challenge for all those seeking the “True Religion” is to identify the Chosen which are proving faithful. Jesus provided ample direction and instruction to empower us to do so. 
(see: pearl-finetrees.blogspot.com). 

According to prophecy, we must expect that the faithful, will be associated for a time with a powerful organization (of spiritual Gentiles) under the direction of the unfaithful (2Thess.2:4; Dan.7:25; 8:11,12,24,10; Rev.12:4,17; 11:2; 13:7). This is why Jesus illustration of his wicked Steward, points to anointed who are over other anointed (Matt.24:45,48,49,50,51; Hosea 6:5). 
None should oppress, but rather, Jesus appoints such a one, to serve (1Pet.5:1,2,3,4; John13:14,15,16,17). 
Jesus well knew ahead of time, that those proving unfaithful, would be those dominating their brothers without mercy and love (Matt.24:49,12; 7:23), and supporting that position based upon a lie of premature stature of divine approval (Matt.24:48; Matt.25:5; 2Thess.2:1,2,3; 2Cor.11:13; 2Tim.3:13) and the power of organized Gentiles (Wild Beast from the "sea"/"abyss"), who would seem directed by God's spirit/breath, due to the lies of a false prophet (Rev.13:15,14,7; 11:2). 
But these unfaithful leaders would not have enough Holy Spirit to provide the “proper food at the proper time” (Matt.24:45; 25:8; John15:4; Col.2:18-19), but would substitute the truth with their own doctrines (John7:18,17; 8:47), which would empower the Beast/Organization that enforces their own authority (Rev.13:12,14; 9:1,2,3).
Yet the faithful would continue to provide good fruit as fine trees….for the sustenance of any who “received” them (Matt.10:40,41,42; John13:20; 12:48; 15:8) and their sayings/teachings/fruit (Matt.7:20). 
By accepting living water by means of the faithful vessels, (John4:10,14; 7:38; Isa.12:3; 1Tim.4:16; 2Cor.4:7; Matt.5:14,15,16; Rev.22:17), these accepting sheep can exercise faith in Christ according to Truth, and receive that living water's benefits (John17:3; 3:16; 4:14; Matt.10:40,41,42).

Signs of the Last Days

Just a reminder that there is a three part series of articles which explore
The Sign Jesus gave of his presence and of the end.

Introduction: provides an illustration which helps us to understand events which are
                   currently taking place in the invisible spirit realm.

Part I exposes the counterfeit sign which Satan has fabricated.

Part II examines what the Bible teaches about the timing and origin of the signs.

Part III highlights each sign, and compares the current interpretation of each "labor pain",
            with the Bible's interpretation (Gen40:8).
            Knowing the correct interpretation of the sign of the end, is vital to the intergrity
            and sealing of the last members of the 144000.

Here are the Links:

Wild Beast and it's ten horns

PART ONE

Pearl...you said,
"The anointed inside that are not the GB, are the ten kings who rule with the wild beast."
About the above quote,
if you are anointed, then while you were a JW, you must have in some way been part of the wild beast.
Is this why you had to leave the Org.?
So in what way were you ruling, because that's what a "king" does?
In what way were you a king ?
Was this because being there you added "credibility" to the Org?
       
ANSWER:

You are right. You need to go to the scripture. 
It is Rev.17:
12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. 

These kings are also described at Rev.6:15. 17:2,12; 19:19.
These kings are called "the kings of the earth".

If you go to Rev.1:5, you will see that Jesus is King over these.
Yet, Those who JESUS rules, cannot be worldly kings, because HIS KINGDOM "is no part of the world". John18:36
Rev.5:9,10 and Rev.1:5,6 confirms that these are the anointed.

Rev.17:12,13 above, helps to see that they do not have a kingdom, and that they give their future crowns to the beast Rev.17:17 ("no kingdom as yet").
They can only receive honor and authority as part of the honor and authority that the beast receives. 
Anointed elders only get the same authority as unanointed elders ( with the beast).

Anointed are recognized, honored to partake, and are counted.
But no anointed can have any authority above the Beast, only with it.
(except of course, the Harlot GB)

As you can see, those kings inside do not rule,
but they do accept the approval of men in exchange for the approval of Christ.
The society teaches that the kingdom began in 1914, so these ones (as long as they are faithful to the GB) and are with the Beast...they are considered king designates.

The Org. and GB also know, that as you say, there is no credibility to this religion, without the anointed.
Without them, they are the same as every other church.

Since the ten kings will be destroyed along with the Beast (Rev.20:10,14,15), anointed do have to be "plucked out" of the Org/beast (so to speak), if we are to remain standing during Jesus' inspection of his slaves (Dan.7:8,5; Matt.25:19; Luke21:36).

Thanks for asking. Please let me know if this is still unconvincing, or if you still have a question.

PART TWO


Pearl, you gave me Rev.17,

"12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. 
If they are already kings,but wait till the one hour to have authority..how can the beast turn on the harlot ? this means any annointed who arent part of the GB,but part of the Org/beast,turn on other annointed. is this the period Jesus spoke of as the wicked slave beating its fellow slaves ? DFing annointed by the annointed in the GB counts as that 'beating' doesnt it ?
The beast seems to only have power for one hour..compared to the rest of the time of its existance..or is the one hour refering to the time of turning on the harlot. It must include that,but Im getting at is,the beast has had power all during these many years,but "authority" must come from somewhere to kill the harlot in that "one hour".
How can the org..beast..continue without the harlot/GB. This means that the org will have no direction?

ANSWER:

The "kings of the earth" are not already ruling kings, because they have not yet received their kingdom.
I don't really understand your first question. 
It may help to consider that they are only kings with the Beast (in Jehovah's eyes) because they have already been anointed. 

(Once David was anointed as King, everyone knew who the king would be, but he didn't begin his reign, until Saul was finished.)

As Paul said at 1Cor.4:8,
You are already full! You are already rich! You have reigned as kings without us—and indeed I could wish you did reign, that we also might reign with you!

Paul did not say the anointed are NOT KINGS, He said that they began their reign prematurely, and should wait to receive their rule when God's kingdom comes and Jehovah gives it to them (Mark10:40,42,43,44). 
Otherwise, they rule during THIS world, under Satan, ahead of time (John6:15; Matt.4:8,9; 1John5:19 b).
This is exactly the case with these 10 kings, as well as the GB.

The one hour is likely the last hour...when the Beast becomes the eighth king (Rev.17:11; Dan.7:8; 2Thess.2:3,4,9). It itself rules, after it gets rid of the Harlot ruling over it (Rev.17:16,17). 
By "killing" the Harlot, the 10 kings have taken action as reigning Kings with the Beast...ruling. They are successors to the GB anointed...But not without the Beast. They are always part of the Beast...the Beast's horns (Rev.13:1; 17:12).
Yes,
you are correct...the anointed kings who rule with the Beast, will, with the Beast, turn on the GB (Rev.17:16,17).
To make this plain,
the Organization of elders, overseers, and committees (anointed or not),
will all decide that the GB must go.

When the 10 king anointed turn on the Harlot, this is not the period that Jesus spoke of as the Steward beating his fellows (Matt.24:45,48,49). 
This is the point where the Harlot is punished for being  the Steward who beats his fellows.
The Steward beats the slaves UNDER him. 
The Harlot is not under anyone human**. She is OVER the other anointed inside the Org.. She is the Steward, previous to the Beast's attack. Jehovah promised that the Harlot would drink the same cup she dished out. (Rev.18:5,6)
When the Beast gets sick of her and her exposed sins, her hour to pay the piper, will come.(Rev.18:8)
**[While the last harlot reigns, she is "under"/serving, her mother covenant (Babylon the Great -Rev.17:5) and Satan (Rev.9:11; 13:4; 9:1)].

Rev.17:12 DOES NOT SAY that the Beast only has authority for one hour. 
It says that the KINGS  rule ONE HOUR, WITH the Beast. The KINGs do not rule, until that one hour WITH the Beast. 

It does not say that the Beast is not already ruling. 
It already is, but not over the Harlot...but within all the congregations (Rev.13:2,5,7,8; 9:3,5,7) which include the ten kings.
 The GB rules all, through the elders (rides the Beast) Rev.17:3,15,18. 
This is why the locust scorpions have "what seems like golden crowns". Even while wearing those crowns, they are under the fallen star who gives them their authority/power (Rev.9:1,2,3); 
just as the two horned beast gives "breath" to the "Image" of the Beast (authority as "spirit directed") Rev.13:11,15; 9:1. ("He was granted power to give breath/spirit" (to Beast image) "to him was given the key" to give "authority" (to LocustScorpions)---same event)

The GB/Wormwood is given power by Satan, to empower the beast/locust-scorpions/Image of Beast (Rev.9:1 "key"). The goal is for those locust/scorpions  to "sting"/persecute/paralyze/deceive, the anointed in the Org., so that they don't get sealed (Rev.9:4,5).
Another parallel is when the fallen star "Wormwood" (Rev.8:10,11;9:1), opens the abyss to release/give birth to/give breath to  the "crowned" locust-scorpions/wild beast image (Rev.9:2,3; 13:15).
This image which is given breath, is then seen as having breath/spirit.
In the Bible, "spirit" and "breath" are the same word )(Greek:pneuma/Hebrew:nephesh) Gen.2:7; Ps.146:4
The "image"/idol of the Beast, is then seen as "spirit directed".

The beast has always had horns (Rev.13:1; 17:12). This tells us that it always had the anointed kings inside it. But those anointed could only rule as the elders do, just like the rest of the Beast/unanointed elders ("with the beast" Rev.17:12). 
When that one hour arrives, the anointed inside the Org. will join with the Beast in turning on the GB. When the Beast rules without  the Harlot (as the eighth king), the anointed kings inside it will then "receive authority" with it also.
 This is a new reign, because it is free of the Harlot's dominion over it.
Yet the "one hour" need not only be a clue to chronology...but rather a comparison also... 
They gave up an eternal rule with Christ, for one hour to share authority with a wild animal...
animalistic men 
who have not been trained by, and who are not in subjection to, the Word of God (tamed) 2Pet.2:12; Jude1:10.

The Beast got it's authority long before the one hour...right from Satan himself (Rev.13:2). 
The "Image" got it's authority before the one hour...right from Wormwood/FalseProphet/Harlot/GB/two-horned  herself (Rev.13:11,15).
At the time of birth, the Beast already had the 10 kings inside it/ 10 horns (Rev.13:1; 17:12). 
The anointed inside only have authority as part of the beast (it's horns) if they too, are elders (WITH the beast).

Un-anointed Elders and overseers have held high office in the Organization for a long time. That power is growing in comparison to all anointed. 
If you have been paying attention to the changing doctrines being taught at WT studys, you may have recognized that they are lowering the anointed more and more...and raising the non-anointed elders more and more (2Thess.2:4; Ec.10:5,6,7; Dan.8:11,24; 12:7; Rev.11:2; Matt.24:15). 
This has enabled the disfellowshipping of the anointed who buck the false teachings and false authority of the Beast/elders (Rev.13:15; 11:7). To do so is to buck the Image, that this Org. of non-anointed elders is spirit directed.
 But in time...this disrespect of anointed and the viewing of them as inferior to the elders, will finally come around to the GB. 
The Org. will realize the hypocrisy, and come to regard the GB in the same way as they do the rest of the anointed.
They will call them into account for their sins. They will finally see "her" for what "she" is (Rev.17:16,17; Nahum 3:5).

The Beast has always had authority. But it was given that authority from Satan, through the ruling  apostate anointed....the GB/Harlot/false prophet (Rev.13:11,12,15; Dan.8:24; Matt.24:49; Jer.51:7; Rev.17:2), who was given the key to Satan's Abyss (Rev.9:1), from where the Beast comes (Rev.11:7; 9:2,3; 13:1)   (Abyss=sea=deep=realm of the spiritually dead=pit).
The Beast rules without the HARLOT anointed, for one hour, as the eighth king (Rev.17:11). The ten kings (horns) inside the Beast, rule with it. 
They never rule without the authority of the Beast...but rather..."GIVE their kingdom to the Beast" Rev.17:17
[...the opposite of Jesus and the anointed, who never rule without Jehovah's authority (Rev.4:10,11), and give Him  all credit for their crowns].

The Org. is already almost fully independent from the GB. 
Over the years, the Org. has taken on more and more responsibility that the GB used to do. The writing committees now determine what material is put in the publications.
All Corporation decisions have been taken from the GB already. They are already reduced to figureheads. This occurred gradually over the years. The stage is set for the ridding of the Harlot.

PART THREE

Pearl,

You also said,

"and many are so afraid of the Beast that they walk away from truth."
This is what i dont get..if you are annointed,then you must be sure of that..true ? Then how could anyone be afraid the Org. Im still getting my head around the fact that the Org might be the beast...but if you are annointed,why be afraid ? Isnt Jesus going to back you. Are they afraid of being DFed ?

ANSWER:

The anointed are capable of unfaithfulness, despite the insight spirit has granted them. There were 5 foolish virgins (Matt.25:2).
You would be surprised how powerful the idea of being disfellowshipped is, especially for those who have families who have been "witnesses" for many generations.
This gives them a sense of pride. They don't want to face that the Organization is really the "abomination"...abhorrent and disgusting in Jehovah's eyes.
They don't want to lose their stature with men, given them by a glorious "mountain-like" Organization (Rev.8:8).
They know they will absolutely be disfellowshipped by unanointed elders if they stick to truth (Rev.11:2).
And remember...
Jesus said that if the anointed don't keep holy spirit (because they are putting the Org. before Jehovah and truth)
then even what little spirit and insight they have, will be taken from them (Matt.13:12 b).
Without spirit, they can not "be sure of what is true".
Their lamps grow dark (Matt. 25:8).
Only those who love Jesus more than approval with men, are willing to be spiritually "killed" by disfellowshipping (Rev.12:11; 15:2; 13:15; 11:7; Matt.10:39).

You are as surprised as me, that the anointed are intimidated into subjection to the Beast, but it was foretold that they would be (Rev.9:4,5,10; 13:4).
They know they must submit or be disfellowhipped. They have no other choice...for "who can do battle" with the Organization, and win (Rev.13:4)???
Trust me...I myself and many other anointed can attest to this reality. It does not matter how many scriptures you bring up to reason with a judicial committee of non-anointed elders. If you don't accept the cerebral mark of slavery to the Organizational Beast....you're out! (Rev.13:15,16)

For many anointed with relatives inside the Org....they are older and have even been living at Bethel.
To accept the true identity of the Organizational Beast, means to lose everything of this life. 
Only if they are willing to join the group of "ten kings" and sacrifice their future kingdom with Christ by handing it over to the Beast (Rev.17:17),
can they avoid "death" (Rev.11:7).

The times and seasons

Another letter, regarding the timing of the end...
Matt.24:36...

Jesus said at Acts, chapter 1:
 Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me[a] in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Notice he says that the information about the timing of the "restoration of the Kingdom" is according to God's authority. And then he immediately says that they will receive Holy Spirit, enabling them to be witnesses.
Would this empowerment ever include God sharing His knowledge of "times and seasons" for them to include in that witness?
See...
Notice a change....
1Thess.5
 But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. 

and
Matt.24
32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that it[d] is near—at the doors! 
and 
Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

Jesus did give them an answer, so that they could discern the "time and season".
(Luke 21:28)

Matt.16
Then the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and testing Him asked that He would show them a sign from heaven. He answered and said to them, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’;and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites![a] You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times."


This knowledge of "time and season" would be for those shown favor, and as with Jerusalem of old; knowing it would make the difference between life, and destruction. (Luke19:41,42,43,44)

You see, when Jesus said that this knowledge was in the Father's jurisdiction, that did not mean that no one else would ever know.
It meant that when they find out, is totally up to the Father.
But the time would arrive when holy spirit would reveal it.

Rev.1:1 shows, that the time would come for Jesus to reveal to his anointed slaves,
"the things that must shortly take place".
So this knowledge of the times and seasons,
was given to the Son (see Rev.5:7).
Once the timing and events of the end of our world, was given to Christ to understand,
he gave it to John in the scroll of Revelation (Rev.1:1,2).

Yet, for thousands of years, it has not been deciphered. Why?
Because it was up to the Father to reveal it to the Son, and to reveal it by means of spirit to their slaves, at the time the Father decreed.
Once the Son knows it is time to restore the kingdom and reveal the timing; he shares it 
(John5:20; 12:49; 17:7,8; 15:15; Dan.12:4,9,7; Rev.10:5,6).

As for me, I will do my best to provide the food I am receiving to the other anointed and whoever comes to read it 
(Eph.4:11-13; Rom.12:6; Rev.1:20; 10:7; 1Cor.14:32-33; Rev.22:6; Dan.12:4,9,10,3; Phil.2:15) .
Jesus expects that of me. But whether or not they want it, or they consider themselves already full (1Cor.4:8), is up to their own spiritual palate and hunger (2Cor.2:15-16; 3:5).
Jesus said that those originally "invited" to the wedding feast "were not worthy" (Matt.22:8).
If they still really love truth (Rev.2:4), they will search for it,
along with any others who hunger (Matt.22:9,10).

Yes, I will meet you one day. In fact, we will spend a good deal of time together throughout eternity.
Feel better,
love,

A Yoke of Slavery

Another anointed one in the Organization....
telling me that inside is the place of safety.

My reply:

Jesus is the King of the "kings of the earth". (See Rev.1:5)
His kingdom IS NO PART OF THIS WORLD(See John18:36)

Therefore, the kings over which Jesus rules can not be worldly governments or kings!!!
For, Satan is king over those (1John5:19). We should not confuse Jesus with Satan.
The "kings of the earth" over which Jesus and Jehovah are King, are anointed ones (Rev.5:10; 1:5,6;  Rev.17:2,12,18; 16:13,14; 18:3)
(pearl-kingsofearth.blogspot.com)

Do you believe elders...or God's Word???
You are being paralyzed by the sting of the locust-scorpions! If you don't release yourself from that slavery, you will not get sealed (Rev.9:3,4,5,10,14; Luke10:19; Ezek.2:3,6) 

THE STARS ARE also ANOINTED ONES....SEE Rev.2:1; Rev.12:4; Dan.12:3; 8:10!

The "fallen star" is not kicked out of the organization....it "falls from heaven" (Rev.8:10,11; 9:1; 2:5). The Organization is not heaven.
The fallen star falls from Jehovah's  favor, not from men's favor. (2Pet.1:10; 3:17; Rev.2:5)
Jehovah seats us in the heavens...not within an organization made of corruptible men of flesh! (Eph.2:4,6; Heb.12:23)

That fallen star rules...it is a "Great  Star...burning as a lamp"...everyone can see it's light (GB) (Rev.8:10; Matt.5:15; John5:35).
Also...that fallen star rules over the abyss and all the locust/scorpions that wear what "seems like crowns of gold(Rev.9:1,2,3,7). (Do I rule over an army? No. GB does. Isa.23:7,8; Eze.28:2)
Those locust scorpions ARE RULING in the Congregations! (These are the non-anointed elders).
But because those crowns are stolen, their authority is not genuine (Rev.9:7,21 c; Eze.44:8,9; 2Chron.13:9)
These "sting" the unsealed men (Rev.9:5) with paralyzing lies, keeping them enslaved and in subjection.
This prevents your being sealed, because as long as you are under the dominion of the elders, and not under CHRIST, you can not get sealed. No one can slave for two masters (Gal.1:10).
Jesus and the elders, are not the same thing!!!
The elders are not Jehovah, Jesus, or even anointed! They are spiritual GENTILES ....not God's anointed people in Covenant. (Heb.8:10)
Jehovah thinks they are common/UNclean!...they do not have the circumcision of the heart by holy spirit (Rom.2:29)
...nor the clean standing given the Bride (Rev.19:7,8; 6:11)
They are not Jehovah's anointed priests, and therefore, should not be serving as such in Jehovah's Temple (Mal.2:7; 1Pet.2:9; Num.3:10; Eze.44:7; Matt.24:15; 2Thess.2:4) of anointed (1Cor.3:16; 1Pet.2:5; Eph.2:22).
((the "Great Crowd" are the remnant....the last of the Chosen to become sealed (the "Capstone" of the completed Temple of 144000 -Zech.4:7,9,3,11,14; Rev.11:4) Rev.7:9,10,13,15; 19:1,8  pearl-greatcrowd.blogspot.com ))
Jehovah views the anointed being ruled/trampled by spiritual Gentiles, as an abomination;
and a "disgusting thing standing in a holy place" (Matt.24:15; Dan.11:31,36; 12:11; Luke21:24; Rev.11:1,2; Eze.44:6,7).
If you are genuinely anointed; you are that holy place, God's "temple" (1Cor.3:16; Eph.2:20,21,22) and as a Chosen priest, are to serve within the body of it, with Christ as your head...the "cornerstone" of his Temple.
If you are in subjection to non-anointed elders (spiritual Gentiles), then you are condoning the trampling of that "holy place"/"sanctuary"/"holy city"... "underfoot", by those ruling Gentiles (Dan.11:36; 2Thess.2:4,7; Dan.8:13,14; Isa.63:18,19).
If you subject yourself to this "abomination", you reject your calling to become a slave of Jehovah and his Christ (Rev.14:1; Deut.6:6,8), in favor of a slavery to the "Beast" (Rev.13:16).
You will accordingly be so marked, as the slave of whichever Master you have chosen. All those who subject themselves to these counterfeit "priests", have left Jehovah's arrangement and means of salvation (1Pet.2:5,9; 2Cor.5:20; Matt.5:14,16). This fall/failure/conquering of the Chosen ones (Rev.13:7), is for a certainty, the "desolation" that the "abomination" causes (Matt.24:15; Dan.12:11) when it "takes away" the faithful service/sacrifice, of God's priests.

The fallen star of Rev.8&9,  is the same as the Harlot in Rev.17&18, which rules over the Wild Beast....also the two-horned beast (false prophet) who gives life to the Wild Beast (Rev.13:11,12,14).
Just as Jesus gave many different illustrations of "the kingdom of the heavens" and what it would become like (Matt.25:1; 18:23; 13:24,31,33; etc.) so too, the book of Revelation repeats the same identities and events, in different comparisons. Through each one, more detail is added.

Can you see it?

GB:  fallen "Great" star... Harlot... two-horned false prophet
Organization: locust-scorpions... wild beast (made of elders)... image of wild beast
(image of Organization as spirit-directed by Jehovah)...an image to worship! (Idol)!!!

You are still under their power!
You are still getting stung (Rev.9:3-10) This is why you can not get sealed.

Only when you are set free from Satan's river of lies (Rev.9:13,14; 12:15)
(the gushing "smoke" from the abyss, is also that "river"),
and stop letting the GENTILES rule over you (marked on the head as slaves to obey them Rev.13:16), 
can you get sealed as a slave of Jehovah and Jesus (see Rev.14:1; 1Cor.7:23).
The "locusts" are the carriers of that smoke/lies/river of darkness (Rev.9:2,3).

You can not be a slave of both Christ, and the Beast, at the same time (Matt.6:24). You can not be under Christ's yoke (Matt.11:29) working beside him;
and at the same time, be under the Wild Beast's yoke of slavery (Gal.4:9; 5:1; 2Cor.11:20) The Greek of Rev.17:8 is most revealing. It says that unknowingly; we are "alongside" the beast in its' yoke, while we don't even realize that the persecuting Beast exists.

"Parestai" is the future tense of pareimi, from which parousia comes (Matt.24:3). The Antichrist, has also a "parousia" which it's victims fail to recognize while they worship it's image as it's slaves.



If what you are seeing agrees with what the Bible is telling us to save our lives now, 
then fine and good.
If not, then the Bible...GOD'S WORD...is what is right.
You must listen to that, if you are going to receive your reward.
