QUESTION:
I am interested in what anyone thinks the "abomination that causes desolation" is?

ANSWER:
Hello,
The "abomination" is the same as the "disgusting thing" standing in a holy place, which IS an "abomination" to God.
This "disgusting thing" also "causes" spiritual "desolation" to the "holy ones"/"holy place"/"holy city"...or, "tramples" them "underfoot" [Matt.24:15; Dan.11:31,36--(2Thess.2:4; 1Cor.3:16); Dan.12:7,11; Rev.11:1,2].
Hopefully you can see from these scriptures, that the "abomination" enters the temple sanctuary/holy place (in among the "chosen" ones/anointed) and takes their power away from them/"desolates" (silences/disfellowships/makes impotent as priests).

What is this desolating power? It is identified there at Rev.11:1,2. The "Gentiles". The Bible defines these as spiritual non-"Jews".
"Jews" are those who have been chosen/anointed (see Rom.2:29). They are the "Temple"/"holy place" (1Cor.3:16).
Any not anointed, are spiritual "Gentiles".
So...the "Gentiles" enter in among the "Chosen" ...overcoming them and "throwing them out". This is confirmed at Ezek.44:6,7,8,9; 2Chron.13:9; etc.
Only the few "rebellious" "Jews" at the top (Stewards of the "Temple") who "leave the covenant" (Dan.11:32,33), bring the Gentiles into the "Temple". These few "Jews" who rule over the Gentiles and lower anointed Priests, are immune to this initial "desolating".
In fact, the ruling anointed priests, are the cause of it (Ezek.44:6,7). They have brought the "disgusting thing" into the "holy place" ...to rule over, subdue, "trample underfoot", and "throw out" their fellow priests.
They are using the power of the Gentiles to enforce their dominance over their fellow anointed slaves (Matt.24:49).
But, only for a time. Soon those Gentiles who take over the "Temple", will also turn on the ruling corrupt over-Priests/Harlot (Lam.1:10; Rev.18:14; 17:16), and give her the same treatment that she sanctioned for her fellows (Rev.18:6).

Can you see how this has happened today? The un-anointed "Gentile" elders are throwing out the anointed who do not worship the "Image" of the Organization (as "spirit directed" Rev.13:15). These "Gentiles", "stand"/rule over the "Temple"/anointed.
That Organization is made up of "Gentile" elders, with a few unfaithful anointed at the top (Harlots). This merciless treatment by the Organization against Christ's brothers ("causing desolation"), is the "Wild Beast" of Rev.13, turning on the "two witnesses" Rev.11:7;
as well as the "Locust/Scorpions" under the "fallen star"/"Wormwood",
"stinging" the "unsealed men" (not yet sealed) in Rev.9:1-10 (Rev.8:10,11).

This is all fulfilled in the wicked steward (Matt.24:48,49,50,51)/Gov.Bdy./Harlot/Wormwood,
who rules over the "Gentile" elders/Wild Beast/Locust-scorpions/abomination/disgusting thing...with all the resulting oppression and expulsion ("desolation"), of the faithful anointed (John16:2)/Holy Place/Holy City/Temple.
It is of vital import, that we now consider Matt.24:15,16 !

Female Subjection / head covering



Jehovah Witness Religion-What is the role of women?
Question: Can a women lead the congregation in a Kingdom Hall and can she reside over a funeral?


ANSWER:

Hello Jane,
Your question is a bit difficult because it is really asking three things; and the answer to each is different.


In the "Subject", you ask what the role of women is in the "Jehovah's Witness" religion.
Yet your question asks if a woman can lead the Congregation in a Kingdom Hall; 
and then, if a woman can reside over a funeral.


I will do my best to give you a thorough answer to all three.


In regards to the religious doctrine of "Jehovah's Witnesses", all baptized women are considered to be in subjection to all baptized men. This means that they can not take the lead in anything within the religion, or within the Kingdom Hall. 
The only exception is what is called "taking the lead out in service". According to doctrine, a woman may, if no male is available, cover her head (to show subjection to the males who are not present), and then proceed to make field service arrangements and offer a closing prayer for that gathering. 
("Field service arrangements", determine who rides in what car with who, and what territory will be covered.) 
Other than that, women do not give "talks" in Kingdom Halls, unless they sit down at a table and put the information in "demonstration" format...a dramatization...a pretend scenario. In this way, it can be construed that she is not really "teaching" the men in her audience.
Of course to anyone who has thinking ability, this is hypocrisy.


I hope this addresses your first question.


As regards the covering of the woman's head to show subjection..."Jehovah's Witnesses" claim that all women are under subjection to all baptized men, and they must display this subjection in order to give the angels in heaven a good example. They base this doctrine upon 1Cor11:1-16:


1"Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.  
2 Now I praise you, brethren, that you remember me in all things and keep the traditions just as I delivered them to you.  
3 But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. 
4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head. 
5 But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, for that is one and the same as if her head were shaved. 
6 For if a woman is not covered, let her also be shorn. But if it is shameful for a woman to be shorn or shaved, let her be covered. 
7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. 
8 For man is not from woman, but woman from man. 
9 Nor was man created for the woman, but woman for the man. 
10 For this reason the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. 
11 Nevertheless, neither is man independent of woman, nor woman independent of man, in the Lord. 
12 For as woman came from man, even so man also comes through woman; but all things are from God. 
13 Judge among yourselves. Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? 
14 Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him? 
15 But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her; for her hair is given to her[a] for a covering. 
16 But if anyone seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, nor do the churches of God.


I hope that you will let this scripture, upon which "Jehovah's Witnesses" rest this doctrine, to teach you what God's Word actually says in comparison to this doctrine.
Take note of verse 5...
"But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, for that is one and the same as if her head were shaved." 
There it says that if a woman prays or prophesies uncovered, she dishonors "HER HEAD". This is saying that she need not show subjection to ALL men, but only her personal head, which is her own husband. This is confirmed at Eph.5:22,23,24:


"Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. 24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything."


Therefore, the "head" of each woman, is not ALL baptized men in general, but only her own husband (baptized or not), should she be married.


Note too, that the praying and prophesying a woman may do in verse 5, is public. 
This CONTRADICTS the doctrine, which prohibits women from saying public prayers or public teaching in Kingdom Halls. 
(This doctrine is hypocritically violated when women preach door-to-door.) 
It seems uncovered women are permitted to take the lead teaching publicly when outside the Kingdom Halls (even in the presence of baptized men), but not inside Kingdom Halls. The Bible does not make this distinction of inside or outside buildings.


Verse 15&16 go well together....
This "Witness" doctrine ignores verse 15, which indicates that this "head covering" is the natural hair a woman possesses upon her head. 
Verse 16 shows that this subject should not raise "contention". Paul makes clear that if anyone has a problem with this show of subjection as already cared for by nature itself, that the true churches of God have no such custom of requiring more. This he says to counteract the excessive demands of the Jewish law...which DID require a woman to cover her head in excess of her hair.


We see that "Jehovah's Witnesses" are doing no better than the Jews, in going beyond what is written (Acts15:28,29; 1Cor.4:6; Matt.23:4; Isa.28:10).


Finally, verse 10 reads:
"For this reason the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels."
The "Witnesses" assume that this is speaking of the angelic spirits in heaven. They assume that these angels are lower than mortal women, in that women set a teaching example to these mighty Sons of God. 
According to the Bible, the PERFECT MAN Christ, was made a little LOWER than the heavenly angels (Heb.2:7; Phil.2:7). Now from Jesus Christ...we must take a BIG step down a notch to go to IMPERFECT SINFUL HUMANS. Are we to reason that imperfect women today are really a teaching example to the mighty perfect Sons of God in Heaven (1Tim.2:14), while at the same time, unfit to teach imperfect men?


Let's see what this verse really means. 
1Cor.11:10:
"For this reason the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels."
The symbolism Paul refers to, can be found if we return once again to Eph.5:22,23,24; only this time lets look at what a woman's subjection to her own husband is compared to...
Verse 23&24 read:
23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. 24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything."


Did you notice the comparison to Christ and the "Congregation"?
How does the subjection of the anointed "Congregation" (Christ's own wife/body) compare to "angels"?  (1Cor.12:27,28; 1Cor.3:16)


It is a fact, according to the Bible, that the "New Creation" of anointed (Christ's wife), are called "angels". You can see many scriptures which prove this identity, at 
pearl-judgeangels.blogspot.com


In order for these "angels" ("Greek" for "messenger")...to prove faithful and be sealed, they must remain in union and subjection to the "head" Christ, as his body. (Matt.22:30; Eph.2:6; Heb.1:6,7; 1John2:28; 1Cor.6:15) It is in regards to THESE angels, that Paul makes reference to women showing subjection. A woman's subjection to her OWN HUSBAND, is a visible example to the anointed body of Christ, as well as an allegory... 
If a chosen one hopes to be among the 144000 conquerors who become established as Christ's "wife"; "she" must have that "symbol of authority (owner) upon her head" (Rev.14:1). It is upon the forehead that slaves are spiritually marked by their owner (those with authority over them) (Rev.13:16; 17:5; 22:4,3; Deut.11:18).   "Because of the angels"...is a warning reminder of those who "forsook their proper dwelling place". If you read the context of Jude1:6,13, you will see that it is speaking of humans who are unfaithful among God's Chosen...."fallen stars" (Phil.2:15; 2Pet.3:17; Rev.2:5; 8:10; 12:4). 
  Invited Chosen ones must also remember these angelic ones... who "wandered away" from their subjection to their heavenly Father and Lord (2Pet.3:17; 1Cor.6:10; Rev.17:2; 1Thess.5:6-7,3), loosing Their seal. This can happen to anointed witness/messenger/angels, and is a personal warning to them. These must remain under the authority of Jehovah (symbolized by His seal/name of ownership, on their foreheads), without spot from the world, or taint by the unfaithful harlots/wicked stewards (Rev.14:4,5; 17:1,2; 18:4;  1Cor.6:15,16).
"For this reason the woman (bride of Christ) ought to have a symbol of authority ("seal") on her head, because of the angels (who fell)." 1Cor.11:10
In this way, a woman does not speak or teach outside subjection to her head. In this, I speak of the head as Christ (Eph.5:23,24; Col.1:18), and the "woman" as his anointed congregation/"wife" (Gal.4:24; Rev.12:1; Heb.10:36). ("Woman"?)
When teaching, this woman must remain in union with her Lord (John15:4; 1Cor.6:17) by total subjection to him (Matt.10:27);
just as he remained in subjection to God (John12:49,50; 7:16; 8:28; 14:10,24; 17:8).


But when you ask, "Can" a woman reside over a funeral...I'm not sure if you are asking about what the doctrine of "Jehovah's witnesses" permits, or the truth of the Bible.
According to "Witness" doctrine, No...once again, due to subjection to baptized males, who are not present (If they were present, they would take over.)... or, 
the invisible presence of angelic spirit sons of God, who might be scrutinizing whether or not a woman puts a cloth on her head.


If you would like to read about the role of women in the Bible, please consider
pearl-womenteach.blogspot.com
You may learn there, that the Bible expects especially "anointed" women, to work as hard as men in their public teaching. For, in the "body" of Christ, there is "neither male nor female" (Gal.3:28). In that article, you will find the many scriptures that indicate that men and women chosen to be Temple priests, are equal in God's sight; both in glory and in the faithful diligence that God expects of them, as they teach and prophesy, if so chosen to do so (1Cor.12:18,28,29; Acts 2:17-18).


This truth helps to answer your question about "residing over a funeral". My relatives are not Christians. Yet, at the death of a relative, I was asked to give a talk in light of my known familiarity with the Bible. I was able to use the occasion to give a fine witness to many people. Imagine God's disapproval if I had declined that opportunity, in favor of an unscriptural constraint through the doctrines of men! (Mark7:13; 2Tim.4:2)


I hope these scriptural considerations answer your question. Thank you for your fine question, and if you feel you need to ask an additional one, please use the "follow up" form.
All the best,

A Question:


Thank-you for all the fine articles.  With what I am understanding, is the preaching work of Matt.24:14 changed ...or what Jesus was referring to as being preached in all the inhabited earth, completed?  I hope you understand my question.

ANSWER:


Hello,
I also hope I understand your question.
Since you cited Matt.24:14, I will assume you are asking about the meaning of this verse, and how it applies to our day.
You don't say whether or not you are a JW, but this people define the "good news of the Kingdom" as the declaration that the Kingdom arrived in 1914, and that it will bring a long list of blessings to those who:
learn all current JW teachings,
join their program of meetings and publication study,
and subject themselves to the organizational arrangements and leadership.

If you are asking if this preaching work is the true meaning of Matt.24:14 and the
"good news of the Kingdom" being preached,
I don't believe this is so.

Why?
Because the very understanding of the kingdom, which JW's teach, is faulty.
For this reason, I doubt this is the message Jesus had in mind at Matt.24:14.
(see http://pearl-generation.blogspot.com/ )

Up until very recently, it seemed that such a message could not be declared
in "all the earth",  EXCEPT by the Organization of Jehovah's witnesses.
But this previous situation has taken an unexpected sudden turn.

With current technology, a single individual with little resource can publish information, translate it into any language, have the aid of an instant concordance and Bible translations, and send that information all over the world....and all for free. (Dan.11:34)

So the presumption that only the WTBTS can declare a worldwide proclamation of Kingdom good news, is no longer true.
This opens up the possibility, that a different message could be declared before the "end will come" Matt.24:14.

Since the message now being declared by JW's is full of error, I suspect that the true good news of the kingdom is quite different from it, and is yet to be seen.
I also suspect that it will be a declaration that all 144,000 are finally sealed, the kingdom's administration is completely prepared (Eph.1:10) and Christ's arrival is imminent.

Jesus said that the anointed needed to keep their lamps of truth burning until he did arrive (Luke12:35,36,37,38,39,40). This arrival has not yet happened (1Cor.11:26).
There is currently so much error of doctrine to correct due to Satan's work,
that no...we will not finish the true preaching work, before the end comes.

I do suggest that you give deep consideration of Matt.10:16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23:

16 “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. 17 But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to councils and scourge you in their synagogues. 18 You will be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. 19 But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak; 20 for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.

21 “Now brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. 22 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved. 23 When they persecute you in this city, flee to another. For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes."

Perhaps you may notice a few differences between the "good news" being preached by JW's, and the one being spoken about in these scriptures.

Notice that the preaching would bring the anointed into conflict with their own religious leaders so much so, that they would be "EXPELLED, scourged, delivered up, betrayed by family members, and hated by all".
But if you notice verse 23; who were the anointed preaching to?...the world?...no..."Israel". Who is "Israel" just before "the son of man comes"?

God's people are no longer the physical Jews, but spiritual Jews (Gal.6:16; Rom.2:29).
Notice again verse 23:
For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.

It says, that "Israel" will not receive a complete witness, before the SON OF MAN COMES.

Therefore, this is not speaking about the witness given in the first century, but the witness given just before Christ returns/"comes"... our time of the last days.

Yes, the "Israel of God" is actually the ones who need to be preached to before the end. 
They are now located around the globe, so the witness needs to "be preached in all the inhabited earth" for a witness in every Nation. Yet according to Matt.10:23, it is directed to "Israel".

This work DOES cause being "expelled, scourged, delivered up, betrayed by family members, and hated by all"....because most of "Israel" refuses to hear the truth about their error. Those who speak of it are disfellowshipped/"expelled" by elders who are not anointed (2Chron.13:9; Ezek.44:6,7,8,9; Matt.24:15)[these are considered by Jehovah, as spiritual Gentiles, not anointed Jews (Rom.2:29)] These do not belong serving in the anointed "Temple" (1Cor.3:16)...and throwing out the genuine "priests" (1Pet.2:9).

Most JW anointed ones prefer to believe in a false "peace and security" within the mistaken belief, that Jehovah's only requirement for them is to be dominated by a "spirit directed Organization", and that Jehovah's approval is the same as approval from this Organization of men. This is in opposition to the scriptures, which exhort the Chosen to be directed by their anointing by spirit (1John2:20,21,27,28) and the One who anointed them. The elders did not anoint the Chosen Priests.

That Organization is represented in each Congregation by elders (spiritual Gentiles), who are NOT spiritual Jews/anointed, nor are they meant to be the spiritual heads of the Chosen Priests of God's spiritual Temple (1Cor.3:16; Rev.11:1,2).
Most members of the "Israel" of God today, are in subjection to these, rather than to Christ as their head. Jesus is supposed to be the only mediator between God and the anointed (1Tim.2:5).
There is also no scriptural basis for the anointed to have a "representative" Governing Bdy. ruling over them (Mark10:42,43,44). These are the ones who have set policy to throw out any who disagree with them (not disagree with scripture) Matt.24:48,49.

You may also want to consider where Jesus continues in Matt.10...

Matt.10:24 “A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master. 25 It is enough for a disciple that he be like his teacher, and a servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub,[d] how much more will they call those of his household! 26 Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known."

Notice that Jesus says that all this persecution happens because of things that are "covered"/hidden. Yes, the Israel of God is in spiritual trouble, because of not seeing all the truth about their situation, nor can they view the true messengers correctly. Those faithful witnesses of truth are seen as wicked (Just as Jesus was) (Rev.11:9,10). But Jesus promises that the truth will become known.

The "good news" includes that despite most of "Israel" remaining blind, deaf, and asleep; the faithful remnant will be sealed, and the kingdom will come (Matt.22:14).
The whole truth about the realities of how the Kingdom will operate and bring blessings to the physical Creation, will also finally be made plain (Rev.10:7; 1Cor.13:10). The true "faithful and discreet" "Sons of God", will also then, finally be revealed (Rom.8:19; Isa.41:27; 60:1,2,3,4,5; Ezek.14:22,23).

Thank you for your question, and if there is anything else, please follow-up.
All the best,
Pearl

I have made needed clarifications to this just now. Sorry...I'm getting old.

A QUESTION:

Good day. Thank you for the food Jehovah has blessed you with. Just one question.
If the woman is a promise/covenant why does she need to be fed and not her seed?
Thank you so much for those kind and wise words. They brought tears to my eyes.
I'll take your advice and turn to Jehovah every night and every morning.
Had a question for Rando but he's maxed out. Wanted to ask him what do the anointed that have finished their earthly cause do in heaven and ask for relevant scriptures to back his answer.
I can see you are hard at work lately. I personally appreciate what you are doing
Going to love and leave you. Gonna drive home now. About 63km.

ANSWER:

Hello Xxxx,
I am going to give you a small part of "The Woman" article. But first I will tell you...if you read Rev.12:1 and Rev.12:13...you will notice a change with the woman/covenant. In 12:1, can you see that before she gives birth to the completed 144000, she is still just a promise/Covenant/sign/symbol  in heaven? (Rev.12:1; Gal4:24,26) At this point, she is not threatened with famine, nor does she need to be fed.
But now if you go to Rev.12:13, you will see that she seems stranded on earth (AFTER SHE GIVES BIRTH to the last of her seed). This is because, the "Promise" of the Covenant (to BECOME New Jerusalem) is fulfilled, once the 144000 is completed/child born (Rom.8:9; Gal.4:26). 

That promise/covenant/Holy City is now a reality...because the 144000 have been "born"/completed. The 144000 now become the Covenant. They become the reality of the fulfilled Promise...
That promise now transfers to it's originally intended purpose...
for the earthly creation to now get life (Rev.21:2,3; 22:2), through the materialized Covenant. Once New Jerusalem becomes a reality, the life-giving Covenant promises extend to the earthly creation, by means of the reality of the Promise...the fulfilled and materialized Kingdom administration (Eph.1:10).

The next point to make, is that once the 144000 are complete, those last ones sealed represent that real existing "Holy City"/Covenant, made up of the trees of life (Rev.22:2) (pearl-treesoflife.blogspot.com). Yet...at the moment the last one is sealed on earth (fulfilling the promise), these are the only living representatives of the woman/fulfilled-covenant on earth, and they have not yet been "born again"...resurrected into perfect spirit beings in heaven (John20:17). Only after this ascension of all 144,000, will the administration be formally installed in heaven...
[when the sacrificial Lamb applies his ransom to Mt. Zion (Rev.14:1),
these cleansed ones are adopted in heaven as Sons of Jehovah,
they are fed crystal clear living waters directly from Jehovah's throne, and
they bring that water back down to the earth (to "cure" the Nations)
see "Holy City" and "Jacob's Ladder"].

Once the 144000 are completed, the members on earth then represent that real established "Holy City". This is why the "woman" is no longer seen in heaven, but her only living members are now seen on earth, with Satan able to go after her seed...because he is also cast to the earth.
Satan wants to drown any truth that might come from these Covenant  representatives. If he is able to get them to be hindered or deceived, that Covenant... which now represents life for the rest of Creation, is jeopardized. Satan does not want that fulfilled Covenant/her representatives, to offer living water to the rest of the world during Satan's "short period of time".
This is also the period where the earth is no longer protected from this spiritual tribulation by means of Satan's flood of lies and it's messengers (Rev.7:3; 12:16; 9:3,4) Once the "men" are "sealed" the Locust-Scorpions can expand the realm of their tribulation/testing...and go after the rest of the earth.

Here is the section from the article. It will give you the scriptures:

After the "woman" gives birth, she is seen on earth. This is because once the Covenant's members/seed are completed, her sealed members have now become the manifestation of that Covenant. All those sealed become part of the New Holy City, New Jerusalem (according to the promise). Once the promise is fulfilled, that covenant/woman having all it's member's sealed, it becomes a reality, it is not just a promise anymore.
(Just as Christ fulfilled the promised seed of the Old Covenant, and so brought about it's transition to the New; so too, the sealing and resurrection of all 144000 fulfills the promised seed of Abraham through the New Covenant/Free woman. This seed fulfilled, also brings about the next transition of the promise to the earth).

Once this completion occurs through the full 144000 being sealed, the "remaining ones" on earth, are the only ones on earth to represent her/Sarah/New Jerusalem/New Covenant. These living members are alive on earth, still awaiting Christ's arrival and their resurrection/transformation (1Cor.15:51).
This is why the woman is no longer seen as a promise "in heaven" (Rev.12:1,2) but after "she" gives birth to the full number, she is seen "on earth" (Rev.12:13,15,16,17). Those who are still flesh on earth, are also still her seed, until they are resurrected into spirits in heaven and installed into heavenly Mt. Zion. The woman/bride of Christ, is not a literal single woman, but is made of many members/"seed". They are BOTH, the collective woman and her individual "seed"/"virgins". These sealed ones are living in God's eyes. (John5:24; 11:26) If these survive to the "last trumpet", they will not die, but be transformed (1Cor.15:51,52,53,54). Only their fleshly bodies will pass away (1Cor.15:36,37,38).

Perhaps I can illustrate how the "woman"/"Covenant" is "fed", and how this compares to the "seed"....
Your family name is something that each family member must uphold. Each member bearing that name can detract or augment the reputation of the family's name. Yet no one single member IS the family name, for the name is not a tangible thing. Yet at the same time, the members of that family, are the essence and manifestation of that name. The family name suffers or prospers, depending on the individuals who possess and bear the identity of that name. The members also suffer or prosper, depending on the name's reputation.
In the same way, the woman/covenant can be fed and strengthened by it's individual members, while at the same time, these are, and represent that woman/covenant. 
If the members of the woman suffer loss, the Covenant suffers loss. If the members suffer spiritual war, famine, or sickness, so does the covenant. Her flourishing depends upon the attending and care that her members give her (Psalm45:14 b; 1Cor.12:26,25).
If the anointed "seed"/"virgins", "feed" the Sarah Covenant (Gal.4); all within it (her daughters) are strengthened (1Pet.3:6). The Covenant is fed, by all her children feeding one another in Truth, faith, and love (Eph.4:12; 1Cor.10:17).

Clearly, Satan at this point in Rev.12, has already been thrown to the earth. Yet, he is able to persecute the woman after she gives birth. She is then, no longer seen in heaven.
This can not possibly be the "heavenly wife-like organization of angelic spirit creatures". For, these are not bound on the earth. Neither are they persecuted by Satan, after he is "thrown down" (Rev.12:13)!

So, to prevent the members of the woman's seed/representatives from suffering from the spiritual famine Satan has caused, Jehovah feeds that Covenant with Holy Spirit...in the form of the anointed being able to feed on the "Carcass/slain Ones"...those slain who proved faithful to "death" (Rev.11:3,7; Matt.24:28). These "two witnesses" were caused to "prophesy"...providing spiritual food. This is the means by which, the members of the woman/covenant are fed... "that they (two witnesses) should feed her there" Rev.12:6. These feed one another (1Cor.10:17) and in this way, the woman/covenant is strengthened and nourished (Acts2:17,18,19,20,21).

Through the remnant receiving Truth, the Covenant they represent is kept strong...strong enough to offer that living water of truth to all who come to it (Matt.22:10), (even before New Jerusalem descends from heaven), by means of the "marriage feast". (This is not the same as the complete river, which will come to the earth by means of 120,000 living trees of life/the New Creation, when these descend to the earth. (Rev.21:2,3,4,5,6,7). (24,000 remain in heaven ("elders"), and rotate each month. There will be more written about this soon. http://jacobsladder-obadiah.blogspot.com/ )
This living water will increase as all of the 144000 are resurrected, and "come down out of heaven" after all 144000 are adopted in heaven, by Jehovah (Rom.8:23).

I hope that answers your question. If it is not all you were looking for, please just let me know. Perhaps Jehovah will continue to help me to provide more.

P.S. I hope you get to ask Rando your question :)

This update was added today to a past post, but I decided to post it here as well.....

"Jehovah views the anointed being ruled/trampled by spiritual Gentiles, as an abomination;
and as a "disgusting thing standing in a holy place" (Matt.24:15; Dan.11:31,36; 12:11; Luke21:24; Rev.11:1,2; Ezek.44:6,7,8,9).
If you are genuinely anointed; you are that holy place, God's "temple" (1Cor.3:16; Rom.2:29). 
If you are in subjection to un-anointed elders (spiritual Gentiles), then you are a part of 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; 2Chron.13:9).
You can only have one mark of slavery/subjection on your "forehead"/thinking (principles at Matt.6:24; 1Cor.10:21).
If you subject yourself to this "abomination", you reject your calling to become a slave of Jehovah and his Christ (Rev.14:1), in favor of a slavery to the "Beast" (Rev.13:16). (Your Master is identified by the brand-mark on your forehead)
Jehovah has promised you a kingdom with Christ (Rom.8:17; Rev.5:10). It is an abomination, that you would sacrifice that gift on the altar of the disgusting thing (Rev.17:17), by giving your crown/kingdom to the Beast (Rev.13:1).
