For those still awaiting answers to questions,
I have not forgotten you....
specifically,
the questions about the "birds" in Rev.19:21...
and the question about the "earth, swallowing the river" from Satan's mouth (Rev.12:15,16)
...and what those things mean.

I am fully occupied by present work, but I will tend to these questions as soon as possible.
I will either post the answers here, on the front page,
or create an article and post the link here.
Thank you for your kind patience,
Pearl

UPDATE
Here are the two articles:

Obey God as Ruler

An increasing number of those professing to be of the anointed, have been contacting me recently. They are either sighing and groaning over what they discern to be idolatry among "Jehovah's Witnesses"; or, they are in the process of being disfellowshipped for a declaration of exclusive devotion to Jehovah, or, they have been recently disfellowshipped for the same "offense".
Although it is distressing to see our brothers suffering persecution,
it is also exciting that the prophecies are being fulfilled before our eyes.
(Specifically Rev.6:9,10,11; 11:3,7; 12:11 among others.)

There are many sections of the recent letters I have written these, which I believe would benefit all readers, whether anointed or not. For, we all are facing this choice...to obey God as ruler, rather than men.

I have posted segments of those letters:


Hello again Xxxx,
My being disfellowshipped is the same story as the other anointed who are being expelled.
We are asked about our subjection to the FDS, and must of course reply that our
subjection belongs to Jehovah and Jesus Christ. We are then thrown out.

Two more anointed brothers were thrown out this week. It is what I have been waiting for,
as a clear fulfillment of prophecy.
This must happen to all anointed proving faithful, in the face of the "Beast"/Organization...(Rev.13)
if they hope to be considered by Jehovah as 
part of the "two witnesses" of Rev.11:3,7; see Dan.12:7; Rev.6:9,10,11....powerful scriptures...I hope you look them up.
This is what the end is waiting for!
Prophecy indicates that those who prove faithful will be few.
So,
it's finally happening. Most will not take note of what this means. (Luke17:20)
Those of us to whom spirit has granted recognition of the current idolatry of God's "City" (Jer.25:29,30; 2:21; Isa.5:7; Rev.14:19,20; Joel3:13).
would never partake inside a Kingdom Hall again.
As Jesus said, at Luke21:21,22; 17:32.....after we depart, we are not to go back.
As Matt.24:15,16 says...when YOU catch sight of the disgusting thing standing in a holy place (by using discernment), you are to "flee".
The meaning of this has become wide open among the anointed being thrown out by spiritual Gentile elders, who see
only themselves as Jehovah's chosen priests (Eze.44:6,7,8,9; 2Chron.13:9). The anointed "Steward", is responsible for this abomination. "He" is the one who has authorized these "Gentile" priests.

Yet, only the anointed are circumcised in heart, and as such, are the only "priests" allowed to render acceptable service in Jehovah's spiritual Temple (Rom.2:29; 1Cor.3:16; 1Pet.2:5,9).
As all the previous scriptures show, the only ones whom Jehovah approves to serve as priests in His spiritual Temple, are those whom he has chosen and whose hearts He has circumcised. 
This does not include unanointed elders, who are considered spiritual Gentiles, not anointed "Jews" (Rom.2:29). 
Yet these ones have taken over the priestly duties, and have "raised themselves up over" the anointed Temple (2Thess.2:4; Isa.14:13; Dan.8:10,11; Rev.12:4; 11:2; Mark13:14; 2Chron.13:9; Eze.44:6,7,8,9; Matt.24:15; Dan.11:31). 
(pearl-obeymen.blogspot.com)
(pearl-disgustingthing.blogspot.com)
They have proceeded to throw out any who do not regard their "authority" as a genuine representation (and subject themselves accordingly) of Jehovah's "spirit directed organization" (Rev.13:15,7). These Gentiles do not recognize the True Temple directed by Jehovah's spirit (John 20:22; Rom.8:14,16; 1Cor.3:16). 
The "False Prophet" has fashioned an "image" of a counterfeit spirit-directed "Temple", consisting of unanointed elders (Rev.13:11,15; 9:1,2,3,7).....rather than endorsing those whom Jehovah decreed as His chosen witnesses and priests (Isa.43:10,21; 1Pet.2:9). Any who refuse to worship that counterfeit "Temple" and it's "priests", are "killed"/expelled (Rev.13:7,8,15; John16:2).
The "disgusting thing" now stands in the Holy Place (Matt.24:15; Mark13:14). It is being idolized, despite it's treatment of Christ's brothers (Matt.25:40,46). Just as Daniel described, it is shattering the power of the Holy Ones (Dan.12:11,7; 11:31,36; Dan.9:17,18,19,26,27; Rev.11:1,2)

You are welcome to partake with us next year, along with all those who have proven their loyalty to Jehovah and paid the price for it.
Any contribution you are pleased in giving is appreciated....meaning....a short prayer...a few scriptures about what the occasion means to you, or perhaps a song choice.
Our individual, personal contributions of expressed love to our heavenly Father and Jesus, will enrich the occasion for everyone.

I hope that if any JW's have questions about what is going on, you will offer them a read at my blog. I have covered many subjects and have clung to the scriptures.
It would be great if you decide to join us next time.
I hope you are doing well, and are richly blessed with Jehovah's spirit.
Love in Christ,
Pearl Doxsey
------------------------------------------------
If you read again the scriptures I sent you, you will see plainly that the "disgusting thing standing where it ought not" as well as the "Man of Lawlessness", are spiritual GENTILES, serving as priests in Jehovah's Temple. 
Anointed ones ARE NOT spiritual Gentiles, but are spiritual JEWS.
Even the MOL is called the "son of destruction" (2Thess.2:3), which makes the only comparison to Judas (John17:12)...who also was not a spiritual Jew....as none of the apostles were yet anointed (which occurred on Pentecost). The MOL, is then, not anointed....yet it enters and stands(rules) in the anointed Temple ("where it ought not" Mark13:14).

Please, read the scriptures in the last letter. Otherwise, you will not discern the true identity of the MOL, the Beast, and the disgusting thing (they are all the same identity). 
Even unfaithful anointed (GB) are still anointed priests. The MOL that "raises himself up" OVER the priests (and DOES NOT BELONG THERE) is the "disgusting thing". The Bible itself contains the definition of these ones, because this has happened before, and has made a historic record in the Bible. (see Eze.44:6,7,8,9; 2Chron.13:9)

I implore you to read all the scriptures I give you now, and in the last letter. It won't take you too long, and it will, I believe, open your eyes wide.
Otherwise, you will likely continue to see the GB as these identities. It is not, but it is over them. The scriptures I have given you should make this clear, if you read them.

If you would like to look in more depth, with more scriptures, you can check out http://pearl-disgustingthing.blogspot.com
but what I have given you here should be enough to clarify things.

I am glad to know that you do not return to the Org., as any in association with it are prophetically condemned by Jehovah, and the hour is late.
You are welcomed to join us, whatever you decide.
Love in Christ,
Pearl
-------------------------------------------
A SEGMENT FROM AN ANOINTED ONE:

(2Co 6:14-18) . . .Do not become unevenly yoked with unbelievers. For what fellowship do righteousness and lawlessness have? Or what sharing does light have with darkness? 15 Further, what harmony is there between Christ and Be′li·al? Or what portion does a faithful person have with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement does God’s temple have with idols? For we are a temple of a living God; just as God said: “I shall reside among them and walk among [them], and I shall be their God, and they will be my people.” 17 “‘Therefore get out from among them, and separate yourselves,’ says Jehovah, ‘and quit touching the unclean thing’”; “‘and I will take YOU in.’” 18 “‘And I shall be a father to YOU, and YOU will be sons and daughters to me,’ says Jehovah the Almighty.”

There is obviously a physical, as well as a spiritual application to this, which I feel would help your argument regarding the separation from the org.  

Something else that may contribute to your side of the argument is that just prior to the Great Tribulation, the disgusting thing is seen where it should not be.  

(Mt 24:15-21) 15 “Therefore, when YOU catch sight of the disgusting thing that causes desolation, as spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in a holy place, (let the reader use discernment,) ... for then there will be great tribulation such as has not occurred since the world’s beginning until now, no, nor will occur again."

Every person on the board believes that the Great Tribulation is just around the corner, even as Mr. King has written several articles stating such, it should therefore be easy to reason with them that the disgusting thing is existing there already, and that it is time to stop touching the unclean thing.  

I understand if you do not want to continue with the conversation on the board, as it is difficult when the group denounces you as they have.  All honor belongs to Jehovah and his son, for if what we teach is truth it is from them, and not ourselves...

With love and hope,

Xxxx

MY REPLY:


My reason for believing that the segregating of lovers of Truth does occur spiritually, but manifests itself physically,
is guided partially, by Rev.13:15...

"He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed."

According to this verse, 
do you see the possibility of someone not worshiping the Beast, and yet not being "killed" by it?
Or do you rather see, that ALL who do not worship the Beast...do get killed by it?
Please stop and think about what this verse is saying.

This makes sense....the fact that, if you do not worship the Organization and it's authority over your mind and power (forehead and right hand);
you will not be able to avoid being disfellowshipped. At the point that your lack of subjection is made manifest, you are out.

Why does it make sense that you have to be expelled, if you are not worshiping the Beast?
Because, 
if we obey the scriptures, we are directed to preach truth to our neighbor (see Eph.4:25; Zech.8:16).....including those with whom we meet at the Hall. If instead, we "blend in", we are guilty of Jer.9:5 and Eze.33:8.

Once we do obey these (and other) scriptures to speak the truth to all....what happens???
Can you see how the prophecy at Rev.13:15 must, and is, being fulfilled?

There is no middle ground, nor place of neutrality in this final spiritual battle. Jesus said that if you seek to save your soul (from the wrath of the beast) you will lose your soul (Luke17:33). 

Rev.11:7 says clearly of the faithful....

"When they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, and kill them."

It does not say, that some manage to hide from "death", by keeping quiet, and hiding who they really are (Psalm26:4,5).
I truly hope that you can discern what direction the Bible is giving to us, in this period of time and circumstance.

I don't think I will be returning to the board...at least for now. If my present load lightens up, I may return my attention to work there. But right now, I have other things assigned to me.

Thank you for providing your link. I will be happy to consider what you are providing.
I also want you to know that I am now planning next Memorial, and that you are most welcome to attend with us.
Please let me know when you can, what you decide, and I will then offer you options for your own contribution to the occasion. 
No pressure...just perhaps a prayer, a few words of faith with scripture, or a song choice.
If we all do something small, there will be many expressions of love to our Heavenly Father and Christ,
and it will prove refreshing for all who attend.

As an afterthought,
Rev.6:9,10,11 --
"When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. 10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” 11 Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed. 

Although the Organization claims that this was fulfilled in 1918-1919, can you reason that this is not possible, since these ones are all dead now, and the end has not arrived? 
Can you see that the anointed are still present, and so the last of this group could not have been from 100 years ago? 
Remember that Jesus said
 that this anointed generation, would not pass away, until ALL things occur! That condition is yet future....not past.

Can you see from Rev.6:9,10,11 , that if as anointed ones, we desire to be counted in among "the number" 144000, then we also have to be "killed"?
As you can see from this scripture, we are talking about the completion...the last ones. These must be killed
Why?
Well, not only does it establish them as refusing to worship the beast and be a part of the end time idolatry (as shown in the last letter);
but in addition, we get an answer at Rev.12:11 ...
"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. "

"Overcame" who?
Rev.12:9,10 show that they overcame the "Accuser"..."Satan the Devil".

They were not silent in the Congregation. 
No. 
They testified and were killed for it. 
They are then given a white robe...sealed as loyal, 
despite the threat of "death". 
Rev.11:7 shows the means of their death...the Beast.


Love in Christ,
Pearl

LINK TO DIRECTORY OF ARTICLES

A response to a letter contains beneficial scriptural thoughts. This person wrote me, concerned that if the New Covenant applies to the anointed, what hope then is there for others?
I have posted my reply...

Xxxx,
I hope that you will never again hesitate to write me. As I have told others before, the whole purpose of the anointed, will be for the sake of all Creation.
You say that you feel guilty talking to your father. I am going to assume that this is because he professes to be of the anointed. 
If he is proving faithful,
he will be humble enough to listen to his son, regardless of your station with Jehovah. 
Even babes and rocks can declare truth (Matt.21:16; Luke19:40).
You are right to have faith that our Father in heaven can forgive your sins. The model prayer at Matt.ch.6 is for all; and it includes a request for forgiveness (Matt.6:12).
If you continue to read the articles I have written, you will learn more about Jehovah's plan of complete forgiveness...how this is established upon perfect justice...and how 
Jesus is the foundation stone of all of it.
I will simplify an explanation in this letter...but I hope you will read the articles where it goes into more depth, cites more scriptures, and provides a solid scriptural basis for faith.

Jesus was the promised seed of the original covenant with Abraham and Israel (Gal.3:16).
Once that promise was fulfilled, so was that covenant (Rom.8:3,4; 10:4). 
Jesus' blood paid for the "firstborn" (1Cor.5:7; Heb.11:28; 12:23; Rev.14:4; 1Cor.15:20; Rev.20:6; 5:9,10).
Jehovah would have fulfilled the secondary seed (of the New Covenant)
by means of the Jews (out of regard for Abraham), but due to bloodguilt over his Son, their house of worship was abandoned (Matt.23:37,38).
The New Covenant was opened to the "Nations" (Gal.3:28,14; Col.3:11). 
That New Covenant also promised the bringing forth of seed. 144000 of them (Rom.8:9; Gal.3:26,29; 4:26; Rev.12:1-2).
Just as the Old Covenant was fulfilled through Christ being born in the flesh, the New Covenant is fulfilled through the faithful sealed anointed being born in the spirit (1Pet.1:23; John1:13; James1:18; 1Pet.1:3; 1John3:9; Rom.8:9). They will take on a new literal body, when Christ arrives (1Cor.15:50,51,53; John3:3; 1Cor.11:26; Rom.8:11; 1John4:13; 2Cor.1:22).

This is why the Memorial ceases with Christ's arrival, and the resulting resurrection of the 144000 (1Cor.11:26).
At that point, the purpose of the New Covenant is fulfilled.

Now...what about the rest of physical creation?
What is the provision of eternal life for these?

Both Christ and the 144000 give their life in sacrifice ("slaughtered"), for the sake of those whom they die for (Rev.5:6; 6:9,10,11; 20:4).
It is only through blood, that covenants which forgive sins, are established (Heb.9:22).
Abraham was willing to shed Isaac's blood for his covenant with Jehovah, but Jehovah provided a ram (Gen.22:16,17,18; 22:13).
Christ gave his blood so that the New Covenant could give forgiveness and life, first to the 144000 seed (Rev.20:6,5; 2Thess.2:13,14).
The 144000 also give their lives, so that the New Covenant's promises can become a reality for, and give life to, physical Creation (Rom.8:19; Rev.21:2,3,4).
Through the anointed, the forgiveness of sins and eternal life (for physical creation) is extended, by entering  into it's next phase.

Now I know that's a mouthful, so I will explain.
While on earth, the New Covenant is the "mother" of the anointed (see http://pearl-thewoman.blogspot.com ). (Gal.4:26,24)
She is called "Jerusalem Above".
While on earth, the anointed are not the manifestation of the Covenant yet...it is a promise...a mother which will give them their immortal lives.
That promise is fulfilled when they are resurrected (2Cor.4:14,15,17,18; Rom.8:25).
At that point...they become that mother in heaven...they become New Jerusalem...they become that New Covenant for those on earth. (Rev.3:12)
This is why the Bible tells us that New Jerusalem comes "down out of heaven" and dwells "with mankind". (Rev.21:1,2,3,4,5)
That is why it tells us that the trees of life from inside that City, provide leaves and fruit for "the curing of the Nations". (Rev.22:1,2)

If you recall...the provision of forgiveness and eternal life for the earth, is the Thousand Years...the time in which Christ and the 144000 are priests and kings (Rev.20:5 a; Rev.20:6; 5:10; 3:21; 2Tim.2:12).
That time is not now. It does not come until the 144000 are born again and receive spirit life through their mother covenant (John3:3). Once they do, that Covenant is fulfilled, and the emblems cease to be partaken of (1Cor.11:26).
The time for the earth to see the Kingdom, forgiveness of sins, and life, is  not  yet (1Cor.15:50).

It will not occur until after the New Covenant is applied to the 144000...first!
When the promise of New Jerusalem in heaven becomes a reality.....
then New Jerusalem will exist. All 144000 will be resurrected, and the promised City will become a reality.
The blueprint promise will then materialize, made up of the living stones of the faithful anointed (Heb.11:10; 1Pet.2:5).
THEN that finished City can come down to earth and do the job for which it was created...the job for which their sins were forgiven and their bodies resurrected...
The job for which they gave their lives...
The restoration of earthly creation and the attainment of Jehovah's original purpose for physical creation.
This is a separate Covenant than the promise made to the anointed (Gal.4:28). Earthly creation are not children of the "Promise" Covenant...but of the reality! The emblems of "promise" are not for these.

                         -------------------------------------

Not everyone qualifies to become part of New Jerusalem. Not even all of those invited to be so (Matt.22:14).
Therefore, the New Covenant can not apply now, to everyone; nor be fulfilled, in everyone. 
The purpose of the New Covenant is for the bringing forth of the rest of the "seed", who will fulfill the Covenant, as Christ fulfilled the Law.

Please read Isa.62:5. Can you see there, that the very sons of the Covenant (144000) (Gal.4:26) will "take ownership" (or become husbands) to the mother Covenant that gave them life?
First they are "sons", then they are husbands to the same Covenant! These will then produce living earthly children, through the same covenant that gave them life. Can you see that there are two, separate phases to this New Covenant? The first is a promiseto the 144000. The second brings the forgiveness of sins and eternal life to the earth, through the glorified Priests and Kings. 

Once the 144000 are resurrected and become Sons of God, they take possession of the New Covenant which gave them life, and produce further life, through it. 

THIS IS WHEN the New Covenant brings it's benefits to the earth.
The next "sons" born through the Covenant (which is now brought to earth), are physical humanity.

Hopefully you can see that the Covenants which give life....goes through phases...
The old covenant, which produced Christ.
The new covenant, which produces the firstfruits who are resurrected first.
These have their sins forgiven, and receive eternal life, first.
The new covenant then materializes (144000 New Jerusalem), which provides the forgiveness of sins and eternal life to physical creation, during the Thousand Years while the 144000 reign as kings and Priests with Christ. This is separate from the Promise which is in effect now, only for the 144000. This is why the emblems which represent Christ's ransom for these, are only for them to partake of; and why the partaking of those emblems ends, when the promise they represent, is fulfilled (1Cor.11:26)...When is that? When Christ comes and resurrects these ones...fulfilling that promise before  the Thousand Years begins for the rest of physical Creation. The application of forgiveness (Christ's body and blood) does not apply to the earthly Creation now....Neither do the emblems.

In the meantime, those not anointed can be water baptized for the forgiveness of sins. They can benefit from the truth of God's Word, 
which grows more accurate and complete as we near the kingdom. You can obtain a trained conscience and obey it, manifesting faithfulness and devotion.
You can show love to the least of Christ's brothers, which manifests a love and appreciation for Christ himself and a fear of Jehovah's arrangement (Matt.25:45,46; 2Pet.2:10).
You can draw close to God, have a supportive relationship with Him, and be saved.
If you do these things, you will get life during Judgement Day.
If the end comes during your lifetime, you will be welcomed into the Kingdom, and never have to die.

But you will need to continue to take in the provisions that come through the priests and kings for the rest of Judgement Day.
Only those who do, will obtain eternal life by the end of that period (Rev.20:5).

I hope that this letter answered what you needed. If not, please feel free to write back about it...and I hope you feel free to write anytime, about anything.

I also hope, that you will pray about reaching your father with the Truth.
The more anointed that wake up, see, and get their lamp in order by means of Spirit and Truth...
the more anointed get sealed...and the sooner the full number is complete and the Kingdom can finally arrive.
Pray for him...have courage...and find a way to offer the Truth to him.

Love in Christ,
Pearl

Flee--where?

UPDATED AND ADDED TO
A segment of a conversation whose scriptures are beneficial.


Be assured that I do not believe that the GB is the "disgusting thing". If they are genuinely anointed, then they belong in the "Temple" (1Cor.3:16; Rom2:29). It is those "uncircumcised by spirit", that do not belong in the Temple serving as priests (Eze.44:6,7,8,9; 2Chron.13:9; Rev.11:2), and whose presence in the "Temple" is considered by Jehovah, as disgusting.
Just as the Roman-appointed "priests" replaced the chosen Levites, and were then accepted by the Jews; so too today. Just as the Romans then later destroyed "Jerusalem", so it has already begun and will finish taking place...all the way up to the Harlot... today.

Those whom Jehovah considers "Jews", are anointed ones...chosen priests (again, Rom.2:29; 1Pet.2:5,9). All others not anointed, are considered spiritual "Gentiles"; including the vast numbers of elders which are now the substance and backbone of the Org.
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/01/what-is-jew-what-is-gentile-answers-to.html)
Again, I have gone into depth with hundreds of scriptures within the articles. You are welcome to examine them at your leisure.

All anointed are subjected to Satan's testing. As with Job, he has demanded it (Luke22:31; Job1:11,12; 14:13; Rev.9:5,6). Would we expect any less toward those who are taking away his reign?
Yet, not all succumb to Satan's end-time lying machinations (Matt.24:24; Rev.13:5,7,8,14; 19:20; 2Thess.2:9), and as a result, are sealed (Rev.12:10,11; 6:10,11; 15:2; 20:4; 19:8).
"Jerusalem today" (Gal.4:25,26) is no longer (since the first Century) the place of true worship (John4:21; John2:19; Mark14:58). It is those who worship in spirit and truth who will comprise "Jerusalem above", and that are the Temple today (1Cor.3:16). The destruction is also...not in literal Israel, but in the Israel of God (Gal.6:16).


For those who can examine things spiritually (1Cor.2:14), the detailed fulfillment of prophecy is being "exposed in a remarkable way showing divine power". But just as the great majority of God's people did not recognize these things being accomplished through Christ (because it didn't match their preconceived expectations), so too with the fulfillment of the end-time scenario (Luke17:20). For these who seek a physical sign, and expect Jehovah God to tailor truth to their own desires, it is as Jesus said, at Matt.16:4. They are spiritual adulterers, and therefore will not be granted recognition of these fulfilled signs of the Kingdom's arrival (Matt.13:11).

Jinn,
Jesus himself answers your question. His words are found in both Matthew and Luke. These accounts are supplemental. They combine to help complete the picture of that which you seek. Let me demonstrate...
Matt.24:15-18 --
15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation', spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him use discernment), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes."

Chapter 17 of Luke continues...
31 “In that day, he who is on the housetop, and his goods are in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back. 32 Remember Lot’s wife. 33 Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it. 34 I tell you, in that night there will be two men in one bed: the one will be taken and the other will be left. 35 Two women will be grinding together: the one will be taken and the other left. 36 Two men will be in the field: the one will be taken and the other left.”

(Now here is your question)


37 And they answered and said to Him, “Where, Lord?”
So He said to them, “Wherever the body is, there the eagles will be gathered together.”

In order to understand what the "Body"/"carcass"/"slain" is, what that has to do with where to "flee", as well as who these "eagles" are (Rev.12:14); these are new questions which relate to your original one.
The Bible clearly answers these questions as well.
But hopefully, as regards your original question....Where the discerning readers should flee to (Matt.24:15), you have recognized Jesus' answer, at Luke17:37, and have discerned
that it is not a physical place.
By comparison, according to Matt24:16, that place where the eagles feed on the "body", is also called
"Judean Hills"/"mountains"/"wilderness" (Rev.12:6; Eze.36:8).
The simplest facts that can be discerned, is that this place is spiritual, and is no longer within the "City" of apostate "Jerusalem".
Luke21:21,22,24 c
"21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. 22 For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled." --(Rev.11:2; 13:7,8; 2Thess.2:4; Matt24:15)

Hopefully you can see that all these different scriptures are linked by the phrases they contain, ...linking them into a full picture of the end-time scenario involving the anointed "body"of Christ/"temple".
   That full picture can not be discerned clearly unless we do combine the details of each piece;
and each piece is provided, within scripture.


I just realized that what you may be asking is...
If the "place" to flee, and the "place" from which one is fleeing, is not physical;
then why should people flee the Org.? Is that right?
Salvation does not depend upon location, but upon our heart's subjection.
Revelation makes clear, that we are marked as slaves of the Idol (Rev.13:8,16,17; 14:9),
or as slaves of God (Deut.6:6,8; 11:18; Rev.15:2; 7:3; 14:1; 20:4).

I'll leave a few scriptures here now, and maybe through your own reading and meditating, you will come up with the answer yourself...

(Rev.13:16,17 -- Can you see that one can have the mark on one's hand, by directing one's deeds according to the lies, even if it is not on one's forehead?) (Isa.44:20; Psalm144:8)
(I have written scripture based articles on what this mark of slavery means, and how the forehead symbolizes ones mental discipine and faith; and one's "right hand" is one's power, actions, and will.)
Here is one: (pearl-forehead.blogspot.com)

The Bible must direct our behaviour...
We are commanded to "speak truth with our neighbor" (Eph.4:25);
Not sit with men of untruth (Psalm26:4),
and to warn those who are headed for death (Eze.33:9).

Jesus tells us to "buy" gold from him (with the payment God seeks), refined by fire (Rev.3:18; Isa.55:1)...[devoted faith in God, cleansed by His Word of truth. (Psalm22:25; Jer.23:29)]
We are not doing that, if we "buy from those who sell" (Matt.25:9; Isa.55:2) and therefore, do not get the "light" that we are shining in our "lamps" of understanding,
from Holy Spirit (Matt.6:22).
Our eye/lamp, must be "simple", or "clear"...only directed by Spirit and Truth (John4:24), not doctrines of men (Mark7:7), (which requires that we "pay" devotion/subjection to them, in order to receive).

What does all this have to do with the Org. and the decision to remain inside or leave?

If we obey any of these scriptural commands of God; then our "hand" is not marked with the "Beast" as it's master, but by Jehovah's word and Christ as master.
Can we obey God, and still get away with remaining in the Org?
Can we remain inside and still practice these commands of God?

The demonstrated reality is found in scripture....
Rev.13:15-17 reads
15 "He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."

Can you see that, even if we refuse the mark on our foreheads (thinking)....if we submit to the Beast's rules of behaviour, we do not dodge the mark being put on our "right hand" of power?

If you do not submit...the scripture says...you will be "killed".
This shows that only those marked, remain inside.
This experience is being fulfilled, in any who do obey the scriptures
...by speaking up and proclaiming truth.
None of them who obey these scriptures and others, are able to avoid disfellowshipping.

If you decide to "lay low" and keep quiet?
Then you are not obeying the commands of the Bible (Ps.26:4; Eph.4:25),
as cited in the scriptures above...
and you are marked on your right hand, by the demands of the Org.

...If inside the Org., you are not permitted to buy "gold refined by fire" directly from Christ;
You may not sell (or dispense spiritual provisions/food)...without the stamp of approval of the "Beast". All provisions are under the oversight of the Org., and nothing but it's defiled waters (Rev.8:10,11), are permitted. (Isa.55:2). (see again Rev.13:15,16,17)
All violators are expelled/"killed" (John16:2; Rev.11:7). It helps to remember that Revelation is symbolic (Rev.1:1).
The 5 virgins (anointed ones) "buy" from those who "sell" (Matt.25:9,10), rather than from Christ (Rev.3:18). This is where the light in their lamps comes from (Matt.6:22,23), which light Jesus does not recognize (Matt.25:10,11,12). This shows us, that the Beast is over spiritual provisions and worship, just as many verses in Rev.13 indicate.

FLEE!

Many "Jehovah's Witnesses" have said to me, 
"Don't you think that we should just wait on Jehovah to straighten things out in the leadership of the Organization? Surely Jehovah will take care of things in His own due time."
Has not God already made clear how He handles wayward leadership, and those who cling to them who lead His people astray? Did he "straighten out" Jerusalem, when they rejected His Son? How does God always conclude his covenants with those who reject His guidance? What happened in 70 C.E.?
Don't you remember Christ's warning, at Matt.24:15,16?

Please consider my scriptural reply to your questions....
Because of the critical times in which we live, we must consult Yhwh's direction in this (Prov.3:5,6).
Certainly, we do not want to view the continuing existence of sin and false doctrines as Yhwh's fault, as if  He wants it to continue until He feels inclined to correct it (1John1:5; Rom.3:4). Any apostasy that exists, is due to men, and not due to God's complacency. 
True, this futility and operation of error is being permitted by Yhwh (Rom.8:20; 2Thess.2:11,9), but not without purpose! 
Be certain that you see clearly what that purpose is!


2Thess.2:9,10,11,12 tells us, that Jehovah allows this test by Satan, so that those who do not really love Him and the truth, will be deceived and marked. The outcome? Eze.14:10; 2Thess.2:10,12; Rev.13:8 and Rev.19:20,21 answer.
Does Yhwh really hold accountable, and condemn, those who are deceived into subjection to corrupt leaders, or even just the complacent condoning of an environment of corruption?
See Ezek.14:10; 1Tim.2:14; Psalm26:4 make the answer to that clear.
So, if we continue to subject ourselves to a false prophet and continue to take in the spiritual food they provide; how does Yhwh view us? (Matt.15:14; 1Cor.10:21,22; Rev.2:2,14,16,20,21,22,23).
"Waiting on Jehovah" is for the endurance of injustice, after you have actually been subjected to it for righteousness' sake (Rev.6:10; 1Pet.2:19; 5:9; Matt.5:10,11,12; Gal.5:1,7,8; Matt.10:32; Rom.8:17; 2Tim.2:12). 
The example of Christ was to speak out against religious corruption and poisonous spiritual food (Matt.23). He knew that Truth was the only way to salvation (John14:6; 17:3,17). He was willing to die to provide the vital warning, that we must not be complacent followers (John18:37; 8:40; Matt.23:13,33,38; 5:20; 15:14). So also, do his brothers and true followers (Luke9:23,24; Rev.6:11; 12:11; Matt.5:13,14,15,16). If we know what is right, and do not do it; it is a sin for us (James4:17; Gen.3:3). We know it is right, to warn those in spiritual peril (Ezek.3:18; 33:8). We know it is wrong to tolerate wicked leaders (Rev.2:20; 2Kings9:7; Eze.13:17; 2Cor.11:4,20,13,12,3).
Sitting still in silence, is not truly, "waiting on Jehovah"...as if His patience is to blame for our drunken sleep.
We do not "wait on Jehovah" for Him to make us take action to do what is right (Deut.30:15,19; Luke13:24). Yhwh is not going to force the corrupt ones to change, so we should stop waiting for that. He is allowing a short time, to see what WE will choose; the condoning of corruption...or faithful action that results in life. (Gal.6:4; Mark10:29,30; Rev.2:2; 2Cor.6:17; Rev18:4; Mark 8:35)
We have free will, and must choose for ourselves to obey His warnings and guidance. "Waiting" will not accomplish this, nor save us. Decisive action was needed to save Noah and his family (Gen.6:22; Heb.12:25). It is the same today (Matt.24:37; 1Cor.10:11).


Many may be under the impression that we have enough time before the end; and that there is time for the Organization to be cleansed and repaired. The reality is, that no longer will imperfect men running an imperfect organization, rule in righteousness during the remainder of Satan's system. 
The very next kings will be Yhwh, Christ, and his glorified brothers (2Pet.3:5,6,7,11,13; Rev.12:10; 6:10,11; 14:1). These have no need of a man-made Temple, buildings, or Organization (John4:21,23,24; Matt.24:2; Isa.26:5; Job 5:11; Eze.21:25,26,27; Luke14:11). God himself is constructing his own, perfected "organization"; and the last of the living stones are taking their place in the completed Tabernacle of God (1Cor.15:50; 1Pet.2:5,9; 1Cor.3:16; Eph.2:20,21,22; Heb.11:10; Acts7:48; Zech.4:9-10) This everlasting and glorious "organization" comes down out of heaven from God (Rev.21:2,3,4,5; 22:3,4; Dan.2:44); not up from the ashes of corruption and sin (Job 14:4).

Yhwh has made plain in so many scriptures, that now is not the time for loyalty to those condemned. It is a time for fleeing, an opened door provided by the merciful compassion of the King of Eternity; who does not implement the cleansing fire of His wrath, until first He warns His prophets (Amos3:7; 2Pet.1:21). 
Let him that has ears...listen!
(Luke21:21,22; 17:32; Isa.52:11; 2Cor.6:17; Jer.51:45; Rev.18:4)

3 1/2 times


"QUESTION":

HiYa Sis,
Read the latest blog about the disgusting thing. Will mull it over.
 If the application is to flee to the 'mountains' applies to the Org..then the time period when the army came.. and then left and came back,this time to flee must also apply. Cant remember how long that was(would be freaky if it was 3.5 years) But if one applies one part of what happened to apostate Jews, then the "time to flee" has to also apply.
 Maybe thats when the 2 witnesses appear and help people "get out"
 Anyway,hope you are doing OK.

REPLY:

Hi Xxxx,
I'm having trouble understanding what you mean. Is it about the warning the Christians received by seeing the surrounding of Jerusalem, and then the retreat of that army...and then their later return 3 1/2 years later? Of course today, this all takes place spiritually. It is true today, that if the warning is not heeded, it will be too late when the desolation becomes inescapable and obvious. The withdrawal of Roman troops gave a false sense of security to those still inside. The Jews felt that they had "conquered the Gentiles"; but this was a false sense of "peace and security". It is the same with the wild beast
(Rev.17:8  "The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.")
The "Beast" that persecuted the chosen people... "was". God's people then think that it "is not"; and yet as Revelation tells us, it will be "alongside" them...unrecognized. They do not recognize that their own Organization is now the persecutor.

Today, the disfellowshipping of anointed in the Congregations and the underlying, growing disrespect for Jehovah's chosen priests, the articles which pronounce their insignificance and apostacy, is the warning. The MOL has "surrounded" and is now dominating these anointed in each congregation (whether loyal to the Org. or not). Their [the "Gentile" (non-"Jews"/anointed) elders] intentions toward any who do not worship the Org., is now evident (Rev.13:15).
(All anointed but the Harlot and ten kings are under threat. The ten kings rule "with" the beast/org., due to positions they hold. Rev.17:12)
("Who are the 'kings of the earth'?")

These proclamations of enmity in the study articles, plus the desolating of the faithful anointed, is the warning that leads up to the full collapse of anointed leadership, which no anointed will escape.
Even the anointed inside who are loyal to the Beast (ten kings), will have lost their own crowns after sharing guilt with the Beast who killed the faithful. (Read all of Jer.4) This is why the ten horns no longer have crowns on them, after the Beast becomes "scarlet"...stained with the blood of the two witnesses (faithful who have been disfellowshipped). (Rev.17:3,4,5,6) The beast is then said to have horns, but not crowns.

The "ten kings" lose their crowns (Rev.3:11) due to "hating their" anointed "brothers" (1John3:15). That crown was their eternal life on the basis of Christ's blood (James1:12; Rev.2:10; 5:9,10) which they lose because of that lack of love (1John3:15 b; Heb.10:26), or, lawlessness (against the law of love...Christ's commandment. John13:34). 
After the faithful are all "killed", the Beast no longer has the "ten kings" crowns to show off, not because the unfaithful inside were also "killed", but because the anointed still inside the Org. have now lost their crowns forever. 
This is because at this point, all 144000 are sealed, and the door is now shut to these unfaithful ten kings, who have retained the mark of the Beast (Rev.9:20; 16:11; 17:12; 13:8). It is also at that point, that the Harlot is seen as drunk with the blood of the faithful.
Once the MOL (Beast Org. along with the ten kings and ten horns with crowns), finishes killing the anointed who get sealed; the time to escape "Jerusalem" is over. All those in distress over the detestable things being done in the midst of it, have already been marked (Eze.9:4). 
The actual desolating of all Jerusalem (including GB members--the Harlot), is yet to come. At that point, all faithful anointed have already been expelled, and are no longer in the "City" of apostate Jerusalem. 
This later, full attack of the Beast on even the anointed Harlot, has been instigated by Jehovah himself. He put this act into it's heart (Rev.17:16,17). After it, none of "Jerusalem" will remain inside the Org. 
Once they, like Cain, "murder" their brothers (1John3:12), the "ten kings" are no longer considered by Jehovah, as His anointed sons, but as the rest of the "uncircumcised" Beast (Hab.2:2,3,16; Jer.9:26; Amos9:7,8,9,10).  The crowns on the Beast, are gone.
It is the crown-less beast, that attacks the Harlot which is riding it.
It is "scarlet colored", because it returns from battle, and is sin-stained with the blood of Christ's "killed" brothers (Isa.1:18).

Please know for a certainty, that the 3 1/2 and 7 times, are not literal.
ALL ANOINTED go through this cleansing/sifting, that lasts "7 times" (no matter when they lived John4:35). It is the time when they are cleansed and whitened... or not. They each mature to become either wheat or weeds, depending on whether they cultivate the word in their heart, and come to the full stature of Christ (Luke8:11,15; Mark4:28,29; Eph.4:13). With the very last of the remnant however, these things come to full manifestation and revelation....for it is the finality of the harvest.
The time to flee is while the final anointed are still being harvested and separated as wheat or weeds. Once this sorting is finished and judgment reaches the unfaithful, it is too late to heed the signs now being seen (the trampling has already begun on the "least" of Christ's brothers). Jesus said that when you already see "the disgusting thing" "standing in the holy place" "trampling the Holy City"...THEN it is already time to get out (Matt.24:15,16; Rev.11:1,2) (but it is also not too late to get out). Can you see the similarity between the first century and the end?

I know that I will come to a full understanding of the seven times. This understanding has begun. It was one of the visions. Now... I do not yet have all understanding of what I saw. I have already made an article space for this subject, and will release it when spirit finishes teaching me about this.

Thanks for asking about when to flee, because there are others who have also recently asked.
I hope this is helpful.
I'll post it on the front page so you can have the pop-up scriptures.
Back to work,
love you bro, and hope you're feeling okay,
