YHWH's Genuine Mountain

"Jehovah's Witness" doctrine claims;
"Come to Jehovah's organization for salvation" - Watchtower 1981 November 15 p.212

 Below is another quote from the Watchtower, from Jan., 2015:  (http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2011041) :
(paragraph 8)
"Still, as a people, “the chosen ones” and their loyal companions will physically survive the end of apostate Christendom by taking refuge in "Jehovah and *his mountainlike organization."

"Jehovah's Witnesses" know that God will allow a destructive wrath at "the end of all things" (2Pet.3:7; 1Pet.4:7; 1Cor.15:24)
 http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2001123
Their doctrines promote seeking refuge in the Organization of "Jehovah's Witnesses".
That Organization is declared by them to be Jehovah's Mountain ("Jehovah and his mountainlike organization"); and is touted as being the fulfillment of Isa.2:2.

Below are quotes from the Bible:

"The kings of the earth, the princes, the commanding officers, the rich, the strong, and every slave and free person, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!" Rev6:15,16

"The high places of wickedness will be destroyed--it is the sin of Israel. Thorns and thistles will grow up and cover their altars. Then they will say to the mountains, "Cover us!" and to the hills, "Fall on us!" Hosea10:8

"Then "they will say to the mountains, "Fall on us!" and to the hills, "Cover us!"' Luke23:30

“What are you, mighty mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become level ground. Then he will bring out the capstone to shouts of ‘God bless it! God bless it!’ So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty." Zech.4:7,6 (1Cor.1:28,29)

"The second angel sounded, and something like a great burning mountain was thrown into the sea. One third of the sea became blood" Rev.8:8

"Go into the rocks, hide in the ground
    from the fearful presence of the Lord
    and the splendor of his majesty!
11 The eyes of the arrogant will be humbled
    and human pride brought low; (1Cor.10:12; 3:18)
    the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.
 9 So people will be brought low
    and everyone humbled—
    do not forgive them."  (Luke14:11)
17 The arrogance of man will be brought low
    and human pride humbled;                        
    the Lord alone will be exalted in that day,
18 and the idols will totally disappear. (Rev.13:8)
19 People will flee to caves in the rocks
    and to holes in the ground (Rev.13:4,3)
    from the fearful presence of the Lord
    and the splendor of his majesty,
    when he rises to shake the earth.
            (Amos9:9; Haggai 2:6,7; Ps.18:7; Isa.13:13;
             Heb.12:26; Eze.38:19; Rev.11:13; 16:18; Joel3:16)
    Stop trusting in mere humans,
    who have but a breath in their nostrils.
    Why hold them in esteem?"    Isa.2:10,11,9,17,18,19,22

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

Satan has the power to create "mountains" during his present reign over the world (1John5:19; Rev.17:9).
"Again, the devil took him to an exceedingly high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world, and their glory." Matt.4:8
These mountains, include religious ones (Rev.17:9).
Yhwh says that in the time of the end, there is a mountain which must become level ground...in preparation for the Kingdom...
[...a mountain which God will destroy; (Zech.4:7; Rev.8:8)].
We must be certain that we are not putting our trust in the counterfeit mountain.
(Luke3:5; Mal.3:1; Rev.14:6,7; Isa.46:11; Haggai 2:7) (Rev.13:8; 16:2)


Counterfeit mountain?
Yes.

The scriptures also tell us of a True Mountain which does provide shelter and salvation. Survival depends upon the guidance of scripture, to give us the ability to discern the Genuine, from the Counterfeit.

We have already considered scriptures about the Counterfeit one. They teach us that it is associated with a trust in humans and their pride. We also see that the Counterfeit "arrogant" mountain offers protection from God's wrath, even to the "kings of the earth" (Rev.6:15; 1:5,6; 5:10; 17:2).
(Who are the Kings of the Earth?)
That mountain is associated with "the sin of Israel" (Hosea10:8), and rather than "exalting the Lord alone"; that mountain exalts itself.
(John 7:18; Rom.1:25; Rev.13:15; Isa.42:8; 2Thess.2:4; Matt.23:12; Zech.4:7)
                                                               ------------------------

You may have heard it said, that the U.N. is the image of the "Wild Beast" of Rev.13:1-8.
Why has the "Watchtower" taught this?
They say it is because of the "blasphemous names" (Rev.13:1; 17:3) which are said to cover the Beast. They have taught that this is fulfilled within the United Nations, because these claim to be God's Kingdom on earth.
How did the "Watchtower" arrive at this judgment?
For many years, the United Nations has had a monument in a nearby park, which includes a plaque upon which Isa.2:4 is scripted.



These plaques symbolized the intentions of the U.N., and it's aspiration (not claim) to bring unity and peace to the Nations of the world. Many individuals and organizations have had the aspiration to contribute to such a goal. This alone does not make them the "Wild Beast" of Revelation.
It should be noted, that
these plaques are no longer officially endorsed by the UN, in compliance with it's adjusted tenet to remove a flavor of religious preference.

The point is this....
If the "Watchtower" interprets the image of the Wild Beast as being the UN, on the basis that it falsely claimed to be the fulfillment of Isa.2:2,3,4 (blasphemy);
then how is it that the "Watchtower" itself  is not the "Wild beast"; since it is the only identity, falsely making this same claim?
In actuality, the U.N. never claimed to fulfill the prophecy at Isa.2:4.
This plaque commemorated it's aspirations, and it's "prayer for peace on earth".
Many have said such prayers, but only the WT claims to answer that prayer.

Let us not forget that according to scripture, "people of all the 'earth' will (also) worship" this "Wild Beast" (Rev.13:8) (see Greek),
and allow it to direct their thinking and actions (Rev.13:16), rather than God (Deut.11:18; 6:6,8). This has not been true of the United Nations.

The "Watchtower" actually does make the claim that they fulfill Isa.2:2,3,4.

They themselves make the claim, that this "Mountain-like" Organization, is the very fulfillment of Isa.2:2,3,4.
They teach that if anyone puts their trust in their "Mountain-like Organization", they will find the very salvation of God, including a "spiritual paradise" right here and now, filled with "peace and security" with God
(1Thess.5:3; Eze.13:9-11; Rev.16:21; Jer.14:13-15; Rev.6:8; Jer.5:31; 8:11).
They claim that under the wings of the Organization and it's stance of "neutrality", people "do not learn war anymore". (Isa.2:4)

Is this true?
Or, is this "blasphemy"? (Rev.13:1,5-7,7-10; Dan.7:25; 8:11-12)
  -----------------------------------
Since the doctrine of "Jehovah's Witnesses" asserts that their Organization fulfills Isa.2:3;
Let's take a closer look at that scripture and it's context. (If you read the entire chapter; you will see that the condition of God's people in the time of the end, is corrupt and rebellious.)

"In the last days
the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established
    as the highest of the mountains;
it will be exalted above the hills,
    and all nations will stream to it.
3 Many peoples will come and say,

“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
    to the temple of the God of Jacob.
He will teach us his ways,
    so that we may walk in his paths.”
The law will go out from Zion,
    the word of the Lord from Jerusalem." Isa.2:2,3
                   ----------------------------

First, we are pointedly told that this takes place "in the last days".
Next, the mountain to be "established", is "the Lord's Temple"
(1Pet.2:5; 1Cor.3:16; Eph.2:20,21,22,10 ---the completed 144,000)
Lastly, this identity is verified in the last two lines....
"The law will go out from Zion,
    the word of the Lord from Jerusalem."

Clearly, the Mountain in question is Mt. Zion (Also referred to as "Jerusalem").
Where is Mt. Zion; and what does it consist of?
Rev.14:1 tells us:
"Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads."
And Rev.21:2,10:
" I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God."


Again....where is Mt.Zion from; and who does it consist of? (Heb.12:22,23)
I sincerely hope that you can discern the genuine from the counterfeit...
and which "mountain" is clearly being spoken of, at Isa.2:2,3; 14:32.

Is the Organization made up of the 144,000
Or,
is it's backbone and body almost entirely made up of those who are not even Chosen Ones? Who do you see as representatives of the Organization within your own Congregation?....the anointed "ambassadors" of Christ (2Cor.5:20; Rom.2:29; 1Cor.6:2,3), or spiritual Gentiles (Elders) who have raised themselves up over God's Chosen Priests? (2Thess.2:4; Rev.11:1,2; Mark13:14) (please see: "Jew" or "Gentile"?)
Who writes up the "spiritual food" served in WT magazines? Are you aware that it is sourced in writing committees that are not anointed, and their contrivances merely signed off by the GB figurehead? (Eze.44:6,8; Mal.2:7; Rev.5:10)

Please compare these two mountains. Are you certain that they are the same one?

Jesus once said that the true worshippers would no longer worship beneath a physical, visible  "mountain" on earth;
(John 4:21,23,24; Heb.11:10; Isa.66:1,2; John 2:19; 1Cor.3:16; Eph.2:21,22)
But rather, the Temple which Christ was going to raise up "in three days", was the Temple of his "body"; whose members would be identified...not by the visible, but by a worship according to  "spirit and truth" (John 2:20,21; 1Cor.12:27; Eph.2:6; Heb.12:22,23).
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2012/05/where-is-true-religion.html)

While on earth...which mountain did Jesus Christ himself point to as God's means of salvation?
Was it the WTBTS?
Jesus decided to make these things clear to his disciples, by giving them a miraculous vision. Let's see what we today can learn from it.
Please read Matt.17:1,5,9; Mark 9:2,7,9



You may notice there that Jesus here associates his glorification with a mountain!
He is "transfigured" into a state of reigning glory before those apostolic witnesses, while on that mountain. With him are his co-rulers, symbolized by Moses and Elijah [Matt.17:1,2,3; Rev.11:3,4; Zech.4:14,11; Luke 9:28,30,31 -(2Pet.1:15)]. Was this mountain the Organization of "Jehovah's Witnesses"? What was this mountain of vision, which was associated with Christ's Kingdom power and glory?


One of the witnesses of that vision tells us, at 2Pet.1:16,17,18,19:

"16 For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17 He received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” 18 We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain." (Ps.2:6; Zech.8:3; Isa.11:9; Eze.20:40; Rev.14:1; Dan.2:35; Gen.28:14; Rom.4:13,12; Gen.13:14,15; Gal.3:29; Isa.54:1,2,3,4,5,6,7; Ps.30:5)
"19 We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts."

Jehovah God and Christ knew in advance that there would be Satanic counterfeit prophets (Matt.7:15,20; 24:24,25; Rev.8:10,11; 9:1; 13:8,11,13,14; 16:13,14,15; 2Thess.2:1,2,3,4; 2Pet.2:1,2,3). God and Christ foreknew that these would possess a "mountain" of organized power to deceive (Jer.51:25; Rev.8:8; 11:18; (Jer.51:25) Rev.17:9; Zech.4:7). That power would be raised up right within the midst of the anointed Temple! (2Thess.2:4; Rev.11:1,2; Matt.24:15; Mark 13:14)
(pearl-disgustingthing.blogspot.com)

But we also have God's prophecies about the end of that Counterfeit mountain.
How exactly will this take place, according to the scriptures?
At Zech.4:7, we are told that the end of the counterfeit mountain is associated with the appearance of the "capstone" of God's Temple (1Pet.2:5; Eph.2:21). The "capstone" is the crowning glory of completion, and is made up of the last remnant of the 144,000 to complete "God's building"/Temple/Mt.Zion (1Cor.3:9; Eph.2:20; Heb.11:10; Zech.4:7,8,9).



This "capstone" is the "Great Crowd", who come though the end/Great Tribulation (Rev.20:4; 6:9,11; 7:9,10,13,14)
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/01/the-great-crowd-again.html)
and (http://pearl-greatcrowd.blogspot.com/)

So, it is during the presence of the "Great Crowd" of end-time anointed priests (Rev.7:15; 2Chron.23:6; Num.3:10; Rev.7:15; 5:10), that this "mighty mountain" becomes "level ground". How does this take place?
Jehovah tells us, at Zech.4:6-14:

"6 So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.
7 “What are you, mighty mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become level ground. Then he will bring out the capstone to shouts of ‘God bless it! God bless it!’”
8 Then the word of the Lord came to me:
9 “The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this temple; his hands will also complete it. Then you will know that the Lord Almighty has sent me to you.
10 “Who dares despise the day of small things, since the seven eyes of the Lord that range throughout the earth will rejoice when they see the chosen capstone in the hand of Zerubbabel?” (Rev.1:16,20)
11 Then I asked the angel, “What are these two olive trees on the right and the left of the lampstand?”
12 Again I asked him, “What are these two olive branches beside the two gold pipes that pour out golden oil?”
14 So he said, “These are the two who are anointed to serve the Lord of all the earth.”

Yes...the "capstone" is the final manifestation of the "two" anointed witnesses, and are labeled God's priestly Great Crowd (Zech.4:14,11; Rev.11:4,3; John8:17; Rev.19:9)
(They serve in Temple -Rev.7:15; Num.18:7)(Matt.5:19; Rev.7:9; 19:1,8)
This remnant ("the rest"/"remaining ones" -Rev.12:17) completes the Temple of God...AND the Holy Mountain, New Jerusalem (Heb.12:22; Isa.24:23; 60:14; Rev.3:9; 21:2)
...made in heaven by God
(Acts7:48; Eph.2:10,20,21,22; 1Cor.3:16; 2Cor.5:1; Heb.9:11; John 2:19,21; 1Cor.12:27; Eph.2:6; Heb.12:22,23)
....(not made on earth, consisting of "uncircumcised" spiritual Gentiles as it's shepherds, priests, and princes.)
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/01/what-is-jew-what-is-gentile-answers-to.html)
(pearl-disgustingthing.blogspot.com)



Rev.11:19; 4:5; Zech.4:10; Rev.5:6; Luke 17:24; Eze.1:14

But does the appearance of this "capstone" have any part in being used by Jehovah's spirit, to level the evil mountain? Would God's spirit (Zech.4:6) empower them to do this?
Let's look at what Jesus said, especially to his final brothers....

"Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matt.17:20
"Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done."  Matt.21:21
“Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." Mark11:23,24


What mountain is thrown "into the sea"?

"The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, ("mighty mountain" Zech.4:7), all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, 9 a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed" Rev.8:8,9
["all ablaze" (Jer.23:29; 5:14; Rev.11:3,5; Hosea 6:5; 2Pet.3:7,10,11,12)]



It is the evil counterfeit mountain that is "thrown into the sea".
(pearl-leviathan.blogspot.com)
Jesus has told his "capstone", that they are indeed able to accomplish this, if only they have faith...
and it's source...Holy Spirit.
By means of God's spirit and the faith of the final prophets (two witnesses), that mountain will come down.
It will be replaced with Mt. Zion...the holy mountain from Heaven...
which consists, not of spiritual "Gentiles" who are defiling and trampling the Holy Place into subjection,


(pearl-disgustingthing.blogspot.com)
(pearl-revelation9.blogspot.com)

but of Christ and his Bride...the 144000!
(Rev.6:14; 16:20; 14:1)

Paul himself contrasted the physical mountain against the spiritual.
We benefit from his words:

"You have not come to a mountain that can be touched and that is burning with fire; to darkness, gloom and storm; 19 to a trumpet blast or to such a voice speaking words that those who heard it begged that no further word be spoken to them, 20 because they could not bear what was commanded: “If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned to death.” 21 The sight was so terrifying that Moses said, “I am trembling with fear.”
22 But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, 23 to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect" Heb.12:18-23; Dan.2:34,35,44,45 (Isa.51:1; Isa.44:8).



"Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. 10 For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them."  Heb.11:1,2,8,10,16; Rev.21:2

So...does Jehovah have a "mountainlike" Organization?
Yes. An administration of priests, "hand-picked" by God to become heirs of the earth, to the blessing of all Creation. (Eph.1:9,10,11,12; 1Pet.2:9,10; Rom.8:19; Gal.3:29; Gen.13:14; 28:14; Heb.2:5,16; Rev.22:1,2; Eze.34:27)

I pray for all those who read what I have received, that you may have eyes wide opened; that you might not perish as all of the deceived ones will (2Thess.2:9,10; Rev.18:4).
We may wish for a physical City, filled with physical signs (Rev.17:18; Matt.12:39,40; Rev.11:8; Matt.24:28). But those who accept and are deceived by the physical, show a lack of spiritual perception, Faith, and patience in God's promises. (1Cor.2:14; Rom.8:25; 1Thess.1:3; 2Thess.2:1,2,3)

"So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." 2Cor.4:18

So let us imitate our spiritual forefather Abraham, who lived by Faith, and not by sight (2Cor.5:7; Heb.6:11; 13:7).

Regarding the "mountains/hills of Judea" (in the time of the end), which Jesus said we must flee to (when we see the Gentiles defiling the Holy Place -Matt.24:15,16),

I hope these scriptures will help you to discern that...

What is the difference between these "mountains" and the Organization of "Jehovah's Witnesses"?
Jesus said that we could tell the difference between True and False Prophets by their "fruit" (Matt.7:20; Mal.3:18). What does this mean? You may wish to consider

  1. I am compelled to bear witness that when I read about Matthew 21:21 I had that EXACT understanding
    It is the same spirit.

    Peace,

  2. The spirit of the Truth (John16:13) has arrived.
    All the Chosen capstone must unite as one.
    Please partake with me this year. We will do it over Skype.
    In Christ,

  3. dear sister Pearl, did you use the pyramid to describe JW counterfit mountain, if so why?

    ReplyDelete
  4. I feel that if you read the post more carefully, the impression you will take away from it will likely change.
    I used the picture to illustrate the words closest to the illustration, which can not be taken out of context
    without losing accurate understanding. The picture illustrates the "capstone", which is made up of the last of the 144000...
    where they are described at Zech.4:7 B, Zech.4:9; Rev.7:9-17.
    Please tell me...
    why do you think I am associating the "pyramid" illustration with the counterfeit mountain?
    Perhaps if you tell me this, I could better understand your perspective and the question it produced.
    A triangle, a mountain, and a pyramid are not all the same thing in all minds.
    Neither are all triangles, all mountains, nor all pyramids, the same.

  5. i understand a lot of this and i agree with the parts i do understand. i was only thinking myself recently, what if the WTBTS is the flase religion, as you have been saying here. Satan deceiving and misleading the people. Counterfeit Gods organisation.

    i have only just started thinking outside the organisation and researching.

    How many anointed are left on earth ? do we know, does it matter.

    It is all starting to take shape now.

    All those poor people slaving and suffering under the organisation which doesn't even know or have contact with the anointed remnant on earth, who should be directing us as direct line to God and Jesus.

    They are enslaved to a system and they don't even realise it. They really have set themselves up as gods organisation on earth. The truth is coming out now. A lot of people are waking up now to it, but a lot have lost their faith/belief in God and Jesus as a result.

    I am thankful that my association benefited me in that I actually learned about god, Jesus and the Bible, which i wouldn't of done, so i am thankful for that.

    i am thirsting for accurate knowledge and truth and learning.

    kind regards

    1. You say at the start of this comment "i agree with the parts i do understand.".
      I encourage you to care for the parts that you do not understand, as well.
      By doing so, you will strengthen your faith into a large shield, to protect you better (Eph.6:16).
      Jesus said to "keep on asking", "keep on seeking", regarding what we have not yet "found" (Luke11:9).
      If there is any way I can help you to do this, please ask.

      Jesus promised, that anyone (anointed or not) brave enough to leave the apostate "city" Jerusalem;
      would be invited to the marriage feast of the Lamb (Matt.22:2,8,9; Luke14:15; Rev.19:7,9,10; 22:6; 1:1; 5:2,5,7; 6:1). That feast has begun.
      At Matt.22:9, the Greek actually says specifically...

      "diexodous"
      G1327
      n_ Acc Pl f
      THRU-OUT-WAYS
      EXITS

      ...that although it is often translated ("street corners", "broad way", etc.), it is those who are on the road "leaving" the City, which are invited to this end-time spiritual feast of truth.

      You yourself are fulfilling this requirement, by your rejection of the detestable things (lies) which you have recognized inside the Org. (Eze.9:4)
      You have walked away from that "city" to seek provisions elsewhere. Because of this, Jehovah has deemed you worthy of an invitation, to partake of understanding the final prophecies (Rev.11:3), the "marriage feast". The opening of these "seven seals" is by Jesus Christ. He is given that scroll of the book of Revelation, by the hand of Jehovah. Jesus (through vision), gives it to his anointed prophets (Num.12:6; Rev.11:3), who in turn provide "the proper food at the proper time" to the entire house of guests. The "proper time" for the "marriage feast", is now. Happy are you, for your invitation! As the numbers of faithful slain anointed grow (Matt.24:28; John16:2; Rev.6:11), those with spiritual insight gather, and the faithful "slain"/"carcass", provide the feast from Christ (Luke12:36,37; Matt.25:10; Job39:27,30; Luke17:37; Rev12:14).

    1. Dear Pearl - In the 1990 Watchtower - 1st November under the headings - Our Relative Subjection to the Superior Authorities - "Obey God As Ruler" it says in par. "16 As Christians, we face up to similar challenges today. We cannot take part in any modern version of idolatry—be it worshipful gestures toward an image or symbol or the imputing of salvation to a person or an organization. (1 Corinthians 10:14; 1 John 5:21) And like the early Christians, we cannot compromise our Christian neutrality.—Compare 2 Corinthians 10:4."

    2. All true. Yet it seems evident, that "Jehovah's Witnesses" are unwittingly imitating the hypocrisy found among God's people of the first century, of whom Jesus said;
      "So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach." (Matt.23:3)
      Like those at Matt.7:21-23; 25:11-13; and Luke19:44, they will likely be shocked at Christ's rejection of them.
      (Matt.5:20)
