How is God's will accomplished?

UPDATED

A Question:

I would like to ask if the anointed corroborate each other's anointing experience of if you have personally? I would think that in the case of Pentecost that such a profound, miraculous, and out of the ordinary event would have a 'neighbor' asking what happened to me, and did this happen to you, type of scenario. Also, if this anointing was to initiated to further spread Christianity with other miraculous gifts, was this done in an organized way so that churches should be involved to have hierarchy's and plans for the church and expansion (since 'leaders' are often frowned upon here)? How can this great prophecy of the kingdom be preached earth-wide, Matt. 24:14, if not for a concerted organizational effort?
Thanks in advance, CJ

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


Dear CJ,
As you may know, the anointed in the Organization of Jehovah's Witnesses have no way of knowing or talking to each other (In violation of John17:21). So I had to "sit on" my excitement and curiosity about other anointed for many, many years. Anointed are not even assisted to obey 1Cor.11:33,26.
I have posted my anointing experience at my blog for anyone to read, anointed or not. Some have shared theirs with me and some have not. We are under so much pressure and strain now, with so much work to do, that when we talk, we seem most concerned with how we can get Jehovah's will done (John4:34). We can see the peril people are in due to Satan's final mass deception (2Thess.2:9,10) which is the reason for the Great Tribulation, which initially tests and sifts the anointed before they are sealed (Luke22:31; Rev.7:3; 9:4; Rev.13:7). When this sorting is completed, the Tribulation/test moves on to the rest of those claiming to worship God
(Rev.9:4 >>> "until" >> Rev.7:3; 8:7; 13:8,9,10).
Although all anointed I have spoken to seem to feel that their own experience was unmistakable and undeniable...so far I am alone (thus far) in that I was anointed during a vision. Others express a feeling come over them while they were conscious and awake in present place and time. This was not the case with me. I was "taken" into the spirit realm, as was Paul (2Cor.12:3,4,5,6,7; Num.12:6) and the other prophets.
I guess the fact that we do not discuss the anointing experience much, is a testimony to our common faith and familiarity with spirit, and the fact that we are preoccupied under such great strain presently.

When I first found other anointed, I was very interested to have a sharing in the confirmation about the experience of contact by Holy Spirit. I had assumed that they had the same experience as I. When I shared mine with them and they shared theirs, we learned that our experience is individual, and likely has much to do with our place in the body of Christ (1Cor.12:18,19,20,27,28,29). Our anointing experience when compared with scripture, can indicate that place to us (Num.12:6; 1Cor.12:8-11,18; Eph.4:11-12).

Regarding this comment of yours concerning the fulfillment of Matt.24:14:
"was this done in an organized way so that churches should be involved to have hierarchy's and plans for the church and expansion"?...

Search the scriptures and see how the apostles and other anointed ones were directed. It was not through a "church" as we understand the word today. Do you doubt the power of God and His spirit to communicate and direct His will to His individual servants?
(Acts13:2,4; Gal.1:11,12,16,17; Acts8:26,27,29,39 as some examples)
Each anointed one stands before God for their own assignment, and not as an organized group (Gal.6:4; 1Cor.3:14; Rom.2:6; 14:12; Matt.16:27; 25:19). We can not receive divine approval under a blanket of Organizational identity. Such is described prophetically at Rev.8:8; 17:15; 13:4,7,8,15,16,17; 19:20; Eze.13:10,11,12,13,14,15,16,21,22,23; 14:6,10; Rev.6:1-8; Eze.14:21,22,23.
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/02/jehovahs-genuine-mountain.html)  ////
pearl-666.blogspot.com
While the anointed parts of Christ's body do depend upon one another (1Cor.12:15-26)....
Christ the cornerstone, along with the apostles and prophets, lay the foundation of truth for the other parts (Eph.2:20; 3:4,5; 4:12,16; Amos3:7; Rom.12:4,6,7,8; 1Cor.12:29,28; 14:32,33). There is no need for what is known as "organized religion", nor it's heirarchy, domination, physical maintenance and costs, spiritual economics, simony, and politics (Mark10:42,43,44,45; Matt.23:8; Luke9:58; Acts 7:48; 1Cor.3:16).
God already has an arrangement within the Body of Christ, with Jesus as our Head and example (Col.1:18; Eph.1:22)(1Pet.2:21). He worked tirelessly, teaching his followers. There was no need for him to have churches and all the traditions, doctrines, arrangements, and class distinction associated with them.
After he left the earth, his early followers met in private homes to discuss and learn (Rom.16:3,5; 1Cor.1:11; 16:19; Col.4:15; Phm.1:2). Any "heirarchy" was based upon God's own direction, as you read at 1Cor.12:18,6,7,8,9,10,11,28; Eph.2:20. This pertains directly to the anointed body of Christ....not to an organization of spiritual Gentiles.
A second consideration, is what Matt.24:14 means by "the good news of the kingdom". The "WT" has assumed what the details of that message is, based upon their false doctrine, that "Christ arrived in kingdom power" in 1914. According to scripture, this is not the genuine "good news of the kingdom" at all. The Bible itself tells us what the message should be (Isa.48:20; Jer.31:11,10; Ps.18:17,18,19,16; Rev.12:15,14). We are promised help (Dan.11:34). The advent of the worldwide web has leveled the power between false and true prophets. What previously took M.E.P.S., billions of dollars, millions of slaves, and tons of printed publications...
now only requires a free blog and simple internet access, to preach a worldwide message... the genuine "good news" that Jesus Christ originally intended to be declared, and was already being declared in the first century, "throughout the earth" (Col.1:6,23; Rom.10:18). That's because the "earth", is not the world of our own definition (meaning of "earth")
This information pertains to your final question...

Finally you ask:
"How can this great prophecy of the kingdom be preached earth-wide, Matt. 24:14, if not for a concerted organizational effort?"

Did Jesus have those resources? Note what he has to say about this....
Acts1:8
"But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Did he say..."You will receive power through a huge world-wide organization of humans in subjection to you"???  (Zech.4:6; 1Cor.1:27; 2Cor.12:9)
How does the Bible regard such things? (1John2:15; 1Cor.7:23; Gal.1:10)

We may be perplexed, wondering how a world-wide witness concerning the kingdom can be given without the Billions of dollars, printing presses, and millions of human slaves (Rev.18:13; 13:8,14), which the "Watchtower" has...
but consider this....
I have paid nothing but the price of a PC and an internet subscription, and I myself am "preaching earth-wide". Any reader can use the available translator, to read the material I've written in their own language. This very letter to you is testimony to that.
There is a prophecy at Daniel 11:34. It reads:
"When they fall, they will receive a little help, and many who are not sincere will join them."
The final remnant of anointed receive a job from Jesus Christ (Rev.11:3,4; Zech.4:11,14).
They will be "helped"....not with billions of dollars, facilities, printeries and slaves...
but with "a little help".
I certainly think that the internet affords that "little help".
In fact, Jehovah pointedly revealed by what means the last events of this world will be accomplished,
and how his final prophets will be empowered. Take note of what he said....
"‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’
 Says the Lord of hosts." (Zech.4:6 b)

Do you believe Him?
(see 1Cor.1:27)
If you think that the support of Holy Spirit mentioned in Zech.4:6 is evidenced by amassed resources and a growing number of disciples (Matt.7:13), then you must look at all such "blessings" throughout history. Many of them were and are; impressive, influential, rich, and powerful (Mark 13:1-2; 1John2:15-16). Do these indicate the blessing of Holy Spirit? (Matt.7:22,23) Or rather, Satan's power, authority, and deceptive machinations? (1John5:19; Matt.4:9) ("Glory")
When Jehovah spoke, at Zech.4:6; he clearly said NOT by any power or might would the kingdom's work be accomplished and the gathering of the final anointed....but by the spirit which dwells in God's chosen Temple (Eph.2:22; 1Cor.3:16). This accomplishment will be by means of a "few" (Luke13:23; Matt.7:14). These are not dependent upon a massive organization of Gentiles....For, they have Jehovah's Arm (Jer.17:5,7; Psalm40:4; 89:13; 118:8).

Anyone desiring to learn about what the present anointed are teaching outside of the wicked steward's influence (including the fulfillment of Matt.24:14), can use a search engine, and have in front of their eyes, much more than what they need to start digging. (Prov.2:4,5)

Thank you for your good question.
All the best,
Pearl

My original introduction for the Memorial


This is an occasion of great joy and excitement! Although we as the partial remnant of the anointed are bearing up under the Great Tribulation, we have reason to rejoice. We see prophecy being fulfilled before our eyes.
2Thess.2:1-4 reads:
"Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

Today we can say with assurance, that the man of lawlessness is now revealed...the "falling away" has occurred, and the Temple priesthood of God has been fully trespassed upon by Gentiles.
Although this grieves our hearts, we know God's will.
Just as the power of Jesus Christ's flesh was brought low in death, so too it is God's purpose that the power of the holy ones is brought to nothing.

Dan.12:7 reads:
"The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, lifted his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and I heard him swear by him who lives forever, saying, "It will be for a time, times and half a time. When the power of the holy people has been finally broken, all these things will be completed."
By what means will this occur?
Dan.7:25 reads:
"He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time."

Yes...HE will oppress the Holy Ones, dominate and restrain them.
We today know who "HE" is. The "Man of Lawlessness". He is Gentile, standing in the Holy Place, trampling them underfoot. How do we know?
Rev.11:1,2 reads:
"Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood, saying, “Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there. 2 But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months."
Mark13:14 reads:
"When you see 'the abomination that causes desolation' standing where it does not belong--let the reader understand--then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains."
Dan.11:31:
""His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice. Then they will set up the abomination that causes desolation."
For what reason did God allow this trampling of both Christ and his faithful brothers?
Dan.4:17 partially explains:
"'The decision is announced by messengers, the holy ones declare the verdict, so that the living may know that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of people.'

Yes...just as Jesus sacrificed his life for others, so too must the 144000.
Rev.17:6 reads:
"I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement."
Why are these faithful killed? Why is their power crushed?
Rev.6:9-11:
"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."
Yes, all the faithful must be killed. Just as Dan.12:7 said, the power of the Holy ones must be completely broken. (Luke21:20)
We know that our own personal power HAS been broken by the "man of lawlessness" who has taken over the Temple (1Cor.3:16). We know also, that while being exposed for who HE is, HE is also the "Wild Beast" from the "sea". That Beast "conquers" the "holy ones". Rev.13:7 reads:
"It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them.". And at Rev.11:7, it is that very Beast, which slaughters the holy ones.
Yes, the Man of Lawlessness has been revealed!!!
2Thess.2:3 shows us that once he is, the day of the Lord can come!
What else are we waiting for?
The power of ALL the faithful holy ones must be brought low. As Rev.6:11 said, we are waiting for the rest of their deaths, to be "completed". How many more need to be killed by the Beast? We are told we can not number the remnant (Rev.7:9).
I say all these things, because this very night is a testimony to the power of Holy Spirit. It has awoken it's children to spiritual realities that we ourselves are incapable of seeing on our own. It has caused us to take our stand, so that we may be killed just as we should be.
Romans 6:5 reads:
"For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his."
And Jesus warned us....
"For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it." Mark 8:35
This is just as Rev.6:9 said..."under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held."
So then....tonight the slain ones gather!

Young's Literal Translation
"for wherever the carcass (slain) may be, there shall the eagles be gathered together." Matt.24:28
(Eagle or Vulture?)

The man of lawlessness is exposed! The power of the holy ones is being brought low! Once the rest of these are gathered in, it is accomplished (Dan.12:7; Rev.10:5,6)! Our gathering here tonight has begun this fulfillment!

English Memorial 3/26/13


MEMORIAL 2013  (3/26/13)
(program....not transcript)


Opening prayer: John Wilhelm

Heavenly father we approach you this evening with joy in our hearts and thankfulness in our voices. The joy is because of the many ways you have blessed us with  kindness and mercy,   so far beyond what we deserve. You have given us your word of pure truth, you’ve given us  comfort and protection from our adversaries, you have given us one another as gifts of your love, and most of all you have given us your son, our Lord and Savior. Beloved father there are not enough words to adequately express the thanks we owe you for these and the many other kindnesses you have showered upon us.  Please accept our humble heartfelt expressions as we attempt in human terms to describe what is sublime beyond our abilities.



We ask now that you grant us the wisdom and humility to reflect the love you have shown to us individually and as brothers and sisters, to one another. We also ask for your help so that we may reflect your love in ways that show all others we appreciate the love and blessings we have received from you. Father, we are mindful of the great examples of love you and our Lord and savior have set before us. We ask that these be our guiding light as we continue to serve you, and our brothers and sisters. We are mindful also of those sheep who have become lost, have strayed, or have been detoured from the pasture of your intention. We ask for your help and guidance to our efforts in sharing your word and your thoughts with them. And now as we commence this evening as a memorial of your love and sacrifice, we ask for your spirit to be upon us so that we may adequately honor both you and our Lord Jesus in a way that gladdens your hearts. . . .  Amen



May we now lift the voices of our hearts in a song of praise for you . . . .

Prayer by brother Del Underwood

"We thank you father, through your son Jesus Christ our "High priest" for allowing us to have this share with you in this communal meal. It is through the love and obedience of your son, the acceptance of his sacrifice, and the pouring out of your holy spirit at "Pentecost" (2000 years ago) that you have made it possible for us to partake of your sons body and blood through the emblems that are placed before us. With your son as our "High Priest", we present ourselves as sanctified and obedient servants of you and your son. We thank you for answering your sons prayer on that fateful night of Nissan 14 to accept us as being in union with you and your son. We realize that although our sins have been forgiven, by a new and lasting covenant, we do not want to miss it's purpose. It was for Christ to offer himself without blemish to God to cleanse our consciences from dead-works, that we may render "sacred service" to you our "Heavenly father". As anointed who are created in union with your Son through his sacrifice and good works in order to walk in his foot-steps always we ask that you bless this arrangement."
AMEN

(Del...please introduce a talk by our Romanian brother, Sas Gavril)
------------------------------------------------------------

Gavril Sas' talk:


Commemoration
Both the great act of liberation from the bondage of the remnant, the man of sin '(the slave ... ") and the working of,, the body of Christ" (Isaiah 11:2-4), they will sanctify and justify JEHOVAH in a special way. Speaking on this,, flesh ", so says Jehovah, 'I'll show you wonderful things, - says the Lord, that the day when you came out of Egypt." Micah 7:15.
The Holy Spirit inspired the prophet Isaiah, saying, 'You get out before they turn the joy of righteousness, those who walk in your ways, and they remember you. But you angry, because I have sinned, we have November forever, or can be saved? "Isaiah 64:5. If you subscribe to this word, it is time to pray like Daniel, who spoke these words, asking Him Jehovah even begging Him for deliverance from the bondage in which he found his people (slavery Babylon), 'Now Lord our God, you who brought up the people of Egypt by thy mighty hand, and hast made a name as it is today: we have sinned, we have committed iniquity. But, Lord, after all mercy thy wrath and thy wrath from thy city Jerusalem, thy holy Mount for because of our pa-unions and iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and Your people are a reproach of all those around us. ", Listen Now therefore, our God, prayer and thy servant, and to love the Lord thy face to shine above thy holy shrine devastated," give ear, O God, and hear; Open your eyes, and behold our desolation and the city which is called by thy name! Do not our righteousness because we bring our petitions, but for thy great mercies.", Listen, Lord, Forgive, Lord, Behold, Lord! Work defer not, for the love of Thee, my God! Because your name is called by thy city and thy people over "- Daniel 9:15-19. If we truly think it's time to make our own the words of this prayer, begging Him Jehovah as we did and Daniel, then Jehovah will bless us to see this great achievement of liberation, the full benefit of it (so the ,, anointed "and, other sheep" - Ezekiel 16:61)!
We must understand that Jehovah do so, as shown in Word. This is what the prophet Amos says, inspired by the Holy Spirit, 'Surely the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. "-Amos 3:7. Scripture says, Friendship Lord is with them that fear him, and covenant with him to give them education. "Psalm 25:14. In that covenant was the,, anointed, "which even the grease teaches all things (1 John 2:20, 27). These anointed still follows the model outlined by Jesus regarding the commemoration of His death. It is for them Redeemer and Savior. With His coming, the wine'' gets a new meaning. Jesus said that he would drink again in the company of his disciples, the kingdom of God (Matthew 26:29). Expression, new wine "symbolize or signify redemption and salvation action of those who really expected Jesus, this double quality was. Scripture referring to these things says (Isaiah 59:20; Hebrew 9:28).
The bread symbolizes the body perfect, sinless, Jesus. Preumbreste bread, unleavened food ', given by Jehovah, by the body or body' of Christ. Given those forming the body "of Christ, Apostle Paul says, whisk the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened: for Christ our Passover has been sacrificed.", praznium to the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. "1 Corinthians 5:7, 8. Of course, this means that all participants sharing must be clean so in the spirit of their minds (about teaching) and in the flesh 'them (on practices flesh)! Do not forget that the Lord told us to guard, leaven of the Pharisees'! If learning about faith is wrong, so is the practice of faith! -Referring to the bread, and its significance, we should use them with dignity symbol. Read Matthew 26:26. (Prayer of blessing the bread).
Wine symbolizes shed blood of Jesus, a pure blood, a perfect man. It signifies purity of doctrine on the application ransom sacrifice of Jesus. Clear teaching of the truth, says Jesus' sacrifice is not for those who sin willfully administer. Those who administer sin willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth,,, profaned the blood of the covenant "(Hebrew 10:26-29)! So I really appreciate the true anointed shed blood of Jesus, and as such is the symbol corresponding share wine. On the come, Jesus said (Matthew 26:27, 28). (Prayer of thanksgiving for wine). Those who share the Remembrance legitimate symbols are ready to give their lives to defend the truth, and that is located in a covenant of sacrifice with the Most High. Today we live in a time when you hear the voice of Jehovah, he cried, 'Squeeze Me on My believers, who have made a covenant with me by sacrifice. "- Psalm 50:5.
Blessed be Jehovah for ever and ever, and his beloved son Jesus Christ.

John's Talk

MEMORIAL TALK Tues 3/26 /2013
 (approx. 20 minutes)

“SYMBOLISM: PASSOVER and LORDS EVENING MEAL”

Please turn with me to Mtt. 26:28 : In NWT of the Holy Bible it says;
Jesus words were "TAKE, eat. This means my body."

In most other versions it reads: Take, eat; this is My body. AMP

Likewise At Matthew 26:28 in NWT we read :  for this means my 'blood of the covenant,

Other versions read :  For this is My blood of the new covenant,

In both these instances the NWT translators got it right.  They were able to see clearly that Jesus did not mean the bread was literally his body.  Nor was he equating the wine with his literal blood.  In this case, they understood the bread was a symbol for his body and the wine was symbol for his blood.

In the Bible, symbols always represent far greater or deeper meaning than the literal words themselves convey.

For example the word “Angel “is a symbol in that it has a primary meaning of “a messenger” . .Yet when we encounter the word we are also aware of it as a spirit being,  a direct servant of God,  one having  superhuman powers and being invisible.  That’s a whole lot more than just being a messenger.

Likewise, The single word “Passover”; . . . .

To the people of Jehovah’s ancient nation of Israel it was also a symbol , representing a greater and far more complex meaning than the word itself possessed.

It was not only that Jehovah’s angel of destruction “passed over” their houses,  it also meant that he had acted on their behalf,  that his favor
was upon them and that he was going to liberate them from their slavery.

Later, as a memorial celebration,  the Passover was to remind them of the many miracles in their delivery from Egypt and of the covenant he had entered into with them.

On another level, it was also to serve as a symbol of a future hope for an even greater liberation, liberation from Sin and Death.   It showed them that their God, Jehovah,  not only had supernatural ability to deliver them and power greater than any foreign God, but that what he had done for them before, he could do again in the future.

The original Passover celebration included symbolically prophetic features pointing to a later fulfillment. There was the sacrificial lamb, unleavened bread, blood on the door post and the Mosaic Covenant among others.  Many of those features were to play a role almost 500 years later in a Passover celebration that turned into what we know today as the Lords Evening Meal.

On that momentous evening on Nissan 14 of 33 CE, three of the symbols from the old Passover which came to take on a new and expanded meaning to those present, are of special significance to us:

Two of them were mentioned earlier: That is the unleavened bread,
(which symbolized the Body) and the Wine (which symbolized the blood ).

That night, the expressions “BODY” and “BLOOD” became symbols again in their own right with meanings far beyond what the words themselves imply.

What Christ’s body meant goes way beyond a common  dictionary, where we find a BODY defined as:

“The physical structure and material substance of a human being, a corpse; carcass, or the trunk or main mass of a thing:

Christ’s sacrifice was not only his physical body but also implied giving up everything Jehovah had designed into humans that made them unique and afforded them pleasure.  It especially meant giving up the pleasure of having a wife and children.

So when he said "This means my body which is to be given in YOUR behalf. Luke 22:19 NWT

He was telling them that he was giving up everything that was important, meaningful and beneficial to humans. Every blessing connected to his human existence . . . . . What an act of self sacrificing love this was.

Likewise the Wine, whereas it was a symbol for his blood, his own blood represented a far more important symbol in its own right according to Leviticus 17:11  - there we see written  “ For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one's life.” NIV

Thus, Jesus blood represented not only his life in this case, but the atonement it could make for their sinful lives and the sinful lives of others.

Turn please to Matt. 26:28 where several literal translations read as follows: “For this is My blood of the New Covenant which concerning many is being poured out for remission of sins LITV

In this verse we see a third important symbol in connection with The Lords Evening . That is the “covenant” which his blood being poured out validated legally.

This was not the Law covenant under Moses. It was a new one.

The Jews understood that the Law Covenant instituted at the foot of Mount Sinai was an agreement, a contract between Jehovah and themselves which God had presented to them through Moses.  And,  they had agreed to it three times, one of which is recorded at  (Ex. 24:7) where it says:

“Finally he took the book of the covenant and read it in the ears of the people. Then they said: "All that Jehovah has spoken, we are willing to do and be obedient." NWT

 On that occasion the agreement needed to be validated by Blood which was poured out in sacrifice . . . . . we read at

Exodus 24:8 Then Moses sprinkled the blood from the basins over the people and said, "This blood confirms the covenant the LORD has made with you in giving you these laws."  NLT

The covenant became a symbol in that what it represented was not merely about ‘covenant” as a word, but about the full meaning attached to their relationship with Jehovah as his chosen people.

Covenant agreements have terms by which their parties are bound and the Mosaic covenant had such terms:

For one, the covenant was conditional.  It depended on both parties continuing to honor their agreement.  If either broke it it could become invalid.  While Jehovah would always uphold his part of the agreement, its remaining in effect depended on the people upholding their part of the agreement as well . . . . .

As we know, they did not, and so Jeremiah was to write the following words nine centuries after the Mosaic covenant was instituted

At Jeremiah 31:31  we read : "Look! There are days coming," is the utterance of Jehovah, "and I will conclude with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah a new covenant”;

With those words Jeremiah implied that the current covenant would be replaced.

And it was.  For on the night of Nissan 14 in the year 33CE, when Jesus had his last supper with His apostles, He said, . . ."This cup is the new covenant in my blood"

 Since a covenant was confirmed by blood and death Jesus' shed blood and death less than 24 hours later established the new covenant just as he had spoken.

Paul was to confirm this under inspiration some years later when he wrote at Hebrews 9:12:

“Once for all time he took blood into that Most Holy Place, but not the blood of goats and calves. He took his own blood, and with it he secured our salvation forever”. NLT
Thus we have the “New Covenant “made not with the fleshly nation of Israel as the old one had been, but with a Spiritual nation of Israel, represented that night by the eleven apostles who were present on that momentous occasion.

With it comes a whole new set of meaning based on exactly what the “New Covenant symbolized.  It was not merely “NEW”  . . .Its meaning went way beyond that.  We are introduced to some of its features at Lu 22:29 where Jesus said;

LU. 22: 29 and I make a covenant with YOU, just as my Father has made a covenant with me, for a kingdom, 30 that YOU may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones to judge the twelve tribes of Israel

This promise is further corroborated at Rev.5th chapter when John visualizes it’s fulfillment in heaven in a future time. . . . .We read at:

Revelation 5:9, 10 “ And they sing a new song, saying: "You are worthy to take the scroll and open its seals, because you were slaughtered and with your blood you bought persons for God out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,:10 and you made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God, and they are to rule as kings over the earth." NWT

In the Revelation the apostle John received, we are given that these “kings” would constitute 144,000 in number.

At Revelation “7:4  we read; And I heard the number of those who were sealed, a hundred and forty-four thousand, sealed out of every tribe of the sons of Israel:”

Whether we view this as a literal number as some bible scholars do or as a symbolic one, this proves to us that the covenant that was made that night by Jesus was not exclusive to the eleven apostles present.  It also proves that it was not applicable to everyone who professes to be a Christian either.
It remains for certainty a small fraction compared to the billions who claim to have been Christians or the uncountable number at  Rev. 7:9.  who also stand before the Lamb.  It is this undetermined number that represents those who would be ruled by Jesus Christ and his joint heirs who he included in the covenant he entered into with that night of Nissan 14 in 33 CE.

Where they come from is revealed in at least two places;

One, at  Revelation 7:14 tells us . . . "These are the ones who have survived the time of great distress; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. NAB

So part of those symbolic 144,000 who would have ruler ship consist of survivors of the great tribulation in connection with Gods great day of destruction at the time of the end.

Clues as to who constitute a second and likely greater part are found at Acts 24:15 and at John 5:29

At Acts 24:15 , It tells us “that there will be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust”. NKJ


John 5:29 elaborates further on this : “and they shall come forth; those who did the good things to a rising again of life, and those who practised the evil things to a rising again of judgment. YLT

These verses imply the resurrection of dead individuals who have died all the way back to the beginning of Bible history. It is these individuals along with the survivors of the great tribulation who constitute those who will be ruled by Christ Jesus and his kingdom heirs for a thousand years. During this time the earth will be returned to its paradise like condition which Jehovah God originally intended.

Now we need to be careful as to how we envision the kind ruler ship Jesus will grant those who are heirs to the new covenant.

We can’t allow ourselves to be jaded by manmade ideas of rulership, where a ruling class is established as an over class to an underclass made up of those being ruled.

Jesus gives us a picture of the kind of rulership we might expect to see from them at Luke 22:25, 26.  “But he said to them: "The kings of the nations lord it over them, and those having authority over them are called Benefactors. YOU, though, are not to be that way. But let him that is the greatest among YOU become as the youngest, and the one acting as chief as the one ministering.

From this we see their ruler ship is not one of domination as we know to be the case with manmade rule on the earth today. Rather it will be one of service and ministry toward others, as was demonstrated by the example of our Lord Jesus himself . . . . .

So far, we have only touched on what Christ said what his part of the agreement was and what we can expect from him.  But how about our part of the agreement do we have any indication of what he expects from us as our part of the covenant.

We are not given a clear explicit one verse statement as Israel was at Deuteronomy 32: 46 and 47.

There in reference to the covenant they had entered into, Moses said to them: "Apply YOUR hearts to all the words that I am speaking in warning to YOU today, that YOU may command YOUR sons to take care to do all the words of this law.:47 For it is no valueless word for YOU, but it means. . . YOUR life, NWT

That explicit statement is impossible to mis- understand. . .

For us,  because Jehovah has written the terms of our side of the covenant in our hearts, a concise statement such as Israel had is not necessary.  Perhaps what it all boils down to for us is summed up in the symbolism of the words a starving Jesus spoke to Satan on a day of test early in his earthly course found at . Mtt 4:4

There we read:
 Matthew 4:4 But He answered and said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.' " NKJ . . . . . . .

Surely, for us this means more than just hearing words and seeing symbols.  It means discerning the deeper thoughts and intentions behind those words.  It means living accordingly, with whole souled devotion to our lord and master Jesus Christ, for our almighty God Jehovah . . has placed . . all authority in him.

So, now as we gather here tonight to celebrate the meaning behind the symbolism of the bread, the wine and the New Covenant, . . . let us keep uppermost in our minds and hearts, . . . not the symbols themselves, . . . but the deep and profound reality behind them.

(Please introduce Pearl)

Pearl: The Bread


As we partake of the bread and wine, we are reminded of our dependence upon Christ. He directs us in the way of life and truth. By accepting from him the greatest gift ever given, we become one with him, in his sufferings and in his glory. Once Christ arrives, we are the first ones raised to perfect life...sharing with him in his divine nature (Rev.20:6). Then the promises symbolized by the bread and wine, will be fulfilled (1Cor.11:26). We will then share in the joy of our master (Matt.25:23)...that of raising the rest of Creation into reconciliation with God (John14:12). We ourselves will become  the Tent of God, the Covenant, the New Jerusalem above (which comes down from Heaven- Rev.21:2; John1:51)...as we slave for God and Christ...bringing their healing love to every living thing on earth
(Rev.21:3; Heb.9:11,15; Rev.21:2; 22:3,4; Heb.1:6,14; 2:16).
Until that Glorious Day dawns, may we continue to keep close in heart our unity with the Ones who love us, and who have saved us from our sins.
Eph.2:4,5,6; Rev.1:5,6; 5:9,10



By the time Jesus gave up his life for the sins of many (Matt.26:28), he had brought the purpose of his own human existence to full maturity and perfection (John18:37; 19:28,30; Phil.2:7,8,9). The seeds of Truth and Light that had been given him by the Father, became fully dispensed, fulfilled, and brought to mature perfection by Nisan 14, 33 C.E. (John12:35,36; 17:1,4,26)
Therefore, matured seeds of grain are used to prepare this symbol of Jesus' body. Within Jesus' own life, those wheat seeds of truth were brought to complete ripeness, maturity, and perfection (Mark4:28; John17:4).
His obedience through all the tribulation he was about to endure, would finish his preparations for sacrifice (Heb.2:10; 5:8,9). At the moment he expired, his offering to God was perfectly depicted, in the unleavened bread Jesus presented to his brothers (John6:35,51,58).

 Jesus knew that in order to bestow his future joy and inheritance of the earth upon his brothers (Luke22:29), these ones would also need to cultivate and bring to perfection, the very same harvest of Truth (Luke8:8; Mark4:29; Matt.10:32; Rev.14:4,5; John15:16). They would need to become sharers with him, in the same course of faithfulness and sacrifice (1Pet.2:21; Luke22:28,31; Rev.6:9,11; 14:4; 11:8; Rom.6:5; Phil.3:10; Mark8:35). For those who were hand chosen by Christ (John15:16), and who succeed in accomplishing these things (Luke21:36; Matt.24:13), Jesus' sacrifice can righteously apply (Rev.19:7,8; 22:14; 5:9,10; 14:3; Eph.5:25).
These become one with Christ in their rejection of the sinful flesh (1Cor.9:27; Gal.5:16). These accept the persecutions of not belonging to this world (John15:18,19; 16:33), or to established religious mountains (Phil.3:10; Rom.6:5; Matt.10:22,23; 23:34,35,36,37,38; John16:2; Rev.11:7; 18:24; 17:6,9; 6:14; 1Cor.15:24). These faithful who endure, are taken into Christ's body (Eph.5:30; Rom.12:4,5; 1Cor.12:12; 10:17; Gal.3:27)...becoming "one" with him as a man and his wife would become (Eph.5:28,32; 2Cor.11:2; John6:56; 17:21,23,26; 15:4,7,9; 14:18; 1Cor.6:17). They accept Jesus as their Lord, Master, King, and Head (Eph.1:22,23; 5:23; Col.3:24). These are fed spiritually by means of Jesus (Eph.4:21; 5:29; John16:7; 15:26,4,5; 1John2:20,24,27), and his sinless body...the "Word" of Truth made manifest (John1:14; 14:6). All these things are symbolized, in the loaf which he presented...the perfect representation of Christ himself...the True food (John6:55; Matt.4:4).

Pearl: The Wine:

Jesus described his heavenly Father Jehovah as the "cultivator" of a vineyard (John15:1). Jesus described himself as the true vine, and his anointed disciples as the branches of that vine (John15:5a). This illustration amply describes the dependent relationship the anointed must have with Christ alone...that of being fed exclusively and directly by him (John15:4,6; Heb.12:25; 2:13,14). The vital sustenance that is channeled by means of The Vine, Christ, is Holy Spirit (John16:7,13; 14:16,17,26; Zech.4:2,3,12,6,14; 1John2:20,28). By means of this gift through Christ; the anointed receive life, truth,
and the ability to produce much "fruit" (John14:6; 15:5,8).
When we partake of the symbol of Christ's blood, we agree to partake of the fruit of the vine of Truth, which was the meaning of his lifeblood (John6:53,55,56,57; 14:6). The wine symbolizes all at once...Jesus' ransom sacrifice (Matt.26:28), his teachings of Truth which also cleanses and saves us (Eph.5:26,27; Titus3:4,5,6,7) and our acceptance to imitate his example (Rom.6:3,5; Rev.6:9,11; Luke9:23; Rom.8:18)....To also be producing the fruit of Truth, even at the cost of our own blood being shed (Rev.11:7; 17:6; 12:11).
Jesus shed his blood to seal his promises to his Bride (John15:13,15,16; Eph.5:2,25,32; Rom.8:23). He gave his life for her, that he might one day bring her home to him (John14:2,3,18,28; Mark13:26,27). Together, they will restore the rest of Creation (Gen.22:18; Gal.3:28,29; Matt.17:11; Acts3:20,21; Rev.22:1,2,17). These depend upon the blood of Christ to cleanse them, qualifying them for their inheritance (Rev.5:9,10; 1Cor.15:50,53,57; Heb.2:11; 9:22). Only through loyalty, endurance, and the sacrificing of their own lifeblood, can these inherit the joyful promises...To become the channel of the great reconcilliation, the means by which Jehovah and Jesus will restore peace and life, to all the earth
(Rev.6:9,11; 2Cor.5:20; Rom.8:20,19,21; 2Pet.3:13; Rev.21:5).
Paulo will give thanks to Jehovah for the wine.

Paulo, please introduce the final song from Pearl

Closing song: Pearl

This is a song from the fifth century about the return of Christ. The author is unknown. Because of how profound and accurate his words are, I think it was written by an anointed one during the dark ages. This melody was used during pagan holidays, but it's origin is not pagan. I feel that the words of this song are very relevant to today's elect, and the circumstances under which they now are. The words are close to my heart, especially concerning the chosen who yet need to awaken, arise, and fight for truth at Christ's side. May God answer this prayer for the salvation and release of all those still in captivity!

O Come O Come Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel, (Matt.1:23; Isa.61:1; Rev.9:14; 13:10)

Teach us our eyes to simplify. Our hearts and lamps to purify.

Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel. He comes to you, oh Israel!
He comes to you, oh Israel!

(Pearl: Our final prayer will be by brother John Jones)

Closing Prayer: John Jones


Our Father, Almighty God, please hear and except our prayer.  We ask High Priest, Lord Jesus to mediate in our behalf before you and that his pleadings go with ours to your ear.

We praise you Father for you holiness, glory, and might. You are our God and Father and to you we offer our exclusive devotion.

We praise our Lord and Savior, your beloved son Jesus Christ for his loyalty and devotion to you.  You have given us the most wonderful Master and Exemplar in him. Praised be the Lamb of God who now sits on the throne.

Thanksgiving

We thank you Father for your love and loving-kindness.  You loved us first and because of your love you were willing to allow your only begotten Son to suffer and die that we might have life. On this memorial occasion as in the past, we have come together to celebrate this most precious gift.

Your love is our life and source of strength.  We pray that our love for you warms your heart.  No words can adequately express our love and so through our actions we hope, by demonstration, to convey to you the depths of our feelings. Without you ours lives would mean nothing. There would be no reason to live.

We thank Lord Jesus too for everything he has done in obedience to you and all he has done and continues to do in our behalf. We also are thankful that he was willing to undergo so much suffering and sacrifice his body in order to provide the ransom for our redemption.  Thank you Lord Jesus.

We thank you for choosing us to be your children and the blessing of your Holy Spirit, Divine covering, and blessings associated.

Thank you for your protection, guidance, and teaching.

Thank you Father for your tender care, comfort, and friendship.

Petition and supplications

We ask for your continued guidance, strength, and nurture.  We ask that you help us clearly discern your will. That you will keep us united and focused on our ministry for our Lord.

We pray for your Kingdom to come and your will to be done.  That the Lord arrival is not far ahead of us.  We long to be in Heaven with you and with your Holy Family.  We long to be finished; to be fully what you have intended us to be.  We long to be in your Kingdom.  Help us to stay close to the Lord and follow him so that we too may come off victorious as he did.

Father, please answer our prayers that those who have refused to honor you and who have blasphemed against you receive the judgement you have stored up for them; foremost the renegade devil and his other spirit rebels.  That all corruption will soon be eradicated from existence and that this abomination come to its end.

Request for mercy, forgiveness, and undeserved kindness.  That you will continue to be long-suffering when we make errors due to our ignorance.

May all those you are calling, hear and become obedient to your will.

Prophecy Fulfillment

A Letter from a reader:


Dear Pearl,

I have just recently stumbled (or was directed somehow) to your blog and since, have read and read and read.  It is taking time to digest what has been read,
and to understand how the power of the Holy Spirit must motivate you to write.

Before this time, I have read Perimeno, whom, although comforting, encouraged continued attendance in the Kingdom Hall.  That is something almost detestable to me considering what I now know about the Society.  Also, I have read Robert King's pieces online in abundance.

This is my dilemma.  You and Robert both seem to be full of Jehovah's help in deciphering the scriptures, warning us of what is to come.  But, as you know, you both have a different agenda when it comes to Revelation, the Great Tribulation, etc.

If you both are filled with Holy Spirit and are both anointed, both working hard to sound the alarm, so to speak, how does a humble joe like myself understand and interpret what I read from both of you?  Could there be a double fulfillment to these prophesies?

I know you have your times of illness, and I do thank you so for taking time to read this.  I am overcome with emotion at how you have dedicated yourself so fully to Jehovah.  It is hard to talk with anyone about how I feel, or what I see happening.  Even a good friend who knows the deception in the organization still says to just wait on Jehovah; she basically puts the blinders on and continues as normal.  I feel it is almost as if she picks from her plate just what she wants and discards the rest.

Thank you, Pearl, so very much for your hard work.

----------------------------------------------------------------
My response:

Dear Reader,
Thank you for writing me. First I should tell you that I have not read much of what Robert King has written, so I can't really compare our writings as you are experienced enough to do.
I've had a few conversations with him, and know that he applies the prophecies in a physical way. I feel strongly, that Satan himself controls the visible physical world, and any fulfillment we think we find there, is a "red herring"....to occupy and distract the Chosen Ones from the spiritual fulfillment which Christ was actually pointing to (Luke17:20).
  To simplify this comparison to how Holy Spirit has directed my perspective, and how it has assumingly directed Robert's; ...He, like the Organization, believes that the signs Jesus gave of "the conclusion of the system of things", will take place (and are visible) in the world around us, which Satan controls (1John5:19).
A deeper look at this concept uncovers a reasonable problem. The Bible calls those "signs" labor pains (check the Greek of Mark13:8; Matt.24:8). It is referring to the birth of the Kingdom of God.
Is Satan's world giving birth to God's Kingdom? (Job 14:4)
Many scriptures indicate that it is the New Covenant, "Jerusalem Above" that is the mother Covenant of the anointed (Gal.4:26,24).
She is seen in Rev.12:1,2 going through those "labor pains".
God's Kingdom is not sourced in Satan's world, nor born from such evil cruelty; but as so many scriptures indicate, is sourced in heaven (Heb.12:22-23; Rev.3:21; Eph.2:6; Rev.14:1; 21:2-3,14,22; Eph.2:20-22; Rom.8:9).
This is one glaring and basic truth which should help you clear up your confusion, even if this occurs gradually, as you read more and meditate on the cited scriptures.
If Satan's world below is not giving birth to God's Kingdom (John8:23; 3:6), then that is not where we will observe the true "labor pains",
and signs of the end.
(pearl-sign.blogspot.com)

  If you have already read the "series" about the spiritual fulfillment of the signs of the end; these ideas are not new to you. If not, please let me give you the link to the introduction to that series...
pearl-anillustration.blogspot.com
Robert King may be very accurate and correct about how Satan's world will (in a physical way), fulfill Bible prophecies. But if that fulfillment is under Satan's control, and just what Satan has designed....
and it is not the actual fulfillment Jesus had in mind....
then it is Satan who has taken control of our Faith, by providing a false fulfillment as a distraction from the Truth.
  If this false fulfillment is successful enough to cause "spiritual confusion" to the invited heirs (Matt.24:24,25); it is successful enough to buy time for Satan's continued world rule. The end will not come, until all the kings are awoken, and sealed (Rom.8:19; Rev.7:4; Eph.1:10). If they are looking in the wrong place, at a false fulfillment, they miss vital information (Hosea4:6).
I am sorry. You are caught in the middle of a battlefield. It is one of the "labor pain" signs the Bible gave, at
Matt.24:6; Gen.3:15; Rev.12:7,17; 16:14,15,16; 19:11,14; etc.
The anointed are consigned to fight this spiritual battle between truth and lies; until the end
(2Chron.16:9; Dan.9:26; 2Cor.10:3-5; Matt.24:13).
Each anointed one will "prove his own work", and whether or not it was "built on the rockmass" (Christ's words) or on sand (Matt.7:27; 1Cor.3:13-15) (teaching from one's self -John7:16,17,18). This is how you yourself know whether a teaching is "fine fruit" of a "fine tree", or not. (Matt.7:20)
pearl-finetrees.blogspot.com
This is a Great Tribulation you find yourself in. Not a physical one, but a spiritual one.
I am here to assist you in any way I can. Feel free to write me as your questions progress....as you learn and see more.
I have written much on all the subjects you raise. I don't know how much of it you have already read. But if some thing specific arises as you read, please write again.

There will be, and is, a "double fulfillment" to the prophecies of the end.
....a physical one (that Satan controls) to mislead if possible, even the anointed
 (Rev.12:9; 20:8; 16:13-16; Matt.24:11,24; 2Thess.2:9; Rev.13:4,7; Dan.8:12)...
and a spiritual one that has been prophesied about for thousands of years, and is unfolding before our spiritual eyes, in detail
(Eph.1:18; Acts26:18; 2Cor.4:6; Isa.42:7).
Physical men will not recognize it (1Cor.2:10,13,14; Col.3:2; 2Cor.4:18).

Well I hope I typed all the scriptures correctly. If it is alright to post this without your name, please let me know. I think your questions and comments will help others.
Thank you for writing me, and write anytime.
Love in Christ,

Reader's response:


Dear Pearl,

I treasure your letter.  I can't thank you enough for taking precious time and answering my questions.  After reading - well, still in the process - of what you directed me to, I realize I could have found the answers right on your site.  I am also reading more fully; almost every scriptural reference and I'm finding the view is coming into focus.

After reading "An Illustration", I kept thinking of Matt 24:7 and how that could possibly have a spiritual fulfillment, but you lead me right to the answer through my reading journey in "Labor Pains" and ultimately "The Sign".  You bring the reader to the logical conclusion that what happens in our physical world has nothing to do with birth of the Kingdom, even if those predictions by Mr. King have a ring of truth to them.

Never, as a Witness, have I had such a hunger to understand so much.  I kept wondering when I would stop feeding on 'milk' and take in' solid food' over the years.  I am there now, with your help, and I hope it's a process that continues, with Jehovah's help.

Now, to understand any further meaning to 2 Tim 3.  That seems pretty straight forward in describing our world today.  I will search your site for additional insight.

It's totally fine to use my questions on your blog, if you so desire.  As you say, I am sure there are plenty out there in my situation.
You are in my prayers,  I hope you are feeling well.

Who Should Partake ?

Addition added.

The following is a comment from Paulo, and anointed brother slain by the Beast for the sake of Truth:

"Emblems are for all those putting faith in Jesus Christ,

Anointed followers of the Master Jesus Christ helped others to be one in the past, and they should be doing that exact thing in the present time.


I preach door to door and in the public shouting the ONLY TRUE GOOD NEWS to my neighbor:

Acts 2:38 Peter [said] to them: “Repent, and let each one of YOU be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for forgiveness of YOUR sins, and YOU will receive the free gift of the holy spirit. 39 For the promise+ is to YOU and to YOUR children and to all those afar off,+ just as many as Jehovah* our God may call to him.”

True sons of God ALWAYS have concerned (offered HELP) so that others could become sons of God as well (John 1:12-14, Matthew 5:45,48)


“Did you receive holy spirit when YOU became believers?” (Acts 19:2)


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

I wanted to address his comment in this following post:
I will put Paulo's comment in bold.

"Emblems are for those putting faith in Jesus Christ"

Paulo....please read John8:30; 12:11,42; 7:31; 11:42,45; 2:23.

There were "many" who "put faith in Jesus", even among the Jewish leaders. None of them were at the Lord's evening meal, except the ones Jesus "chose" (John13:1,18; 14:3; 15:16). These four verses were spoken only to the 11 during that last evening meal.
Of those few Jesus said, "I chose you twelve, did I not?", and
"You did not choose me, but I chose you, and appointed you to bear fruit...fruit that will last." (John6:70; 15:16) These can only "bear fruit", because they are branches of the one vine, Christ (John15:5,4,8
A bridegroom chooses his own bride. But when we choose to simply put faith in Christ, that is our own choice. Putting faith in, and being chosen, are two different things.
So which is it? Did Christ die for his bride? Or, did he die for all those putting faith in him?
The answer, is that he first dies (during the period of the New Covenant with spiritual Israel) only for his bride (Eph.1:3-23; 5:23,25,26,27,30; Rev.21:2; 5:9,10; 20). The members of the body of Christ are "firstfruits"...first to be ransomed (Rev.20:6; James1:18; Rev.14:4) under the new mother covenant, "Jerusalem above", established by the blood of Christ (Gal.4:24,26). How do all others receive life? (1John2:2) This Bride becomes one with Christ, and she symbolically demonstrates that unity by taking Christ into herself, making him one with her (Matt.19:6; 1Cor.6:17; Eph.2:18; John17:21) (Gal.4:19; Rev.12:2). The result is the "woman's" "seed", who are the second ones to receive life...THROUGH THE WOMAN / sealed Bride of Christ (Rev.22:17; John7:38; Matt.10:40-41; John6:63; Phil.2:16)
The following scriptures demonstrate that the purpose of the emblems, is initially for that bride of Christ...
"For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread." (1Cor.10:17)
This partaking of the bread, is for those who are the parts of the body of Christ (1Cor.12:27). Can you see that?
Who is one body with Christ, if not his chosen wife? He is the savior of that wife/body, through the ransom of his blood (Eph.5:23,25,26,27,30; Rev.21:2,3; 5:9,10). He also becomes the savour/life giver/everlasting father (1John2:2; John10:10; Isa.9:6; 1Cor.15:45), to those of his children, who come through his heavenly wife (Eph.2:6; Luke10:20; Gal.4:26; Rev.12:2; Heb.12:22,24,23; Matt.5:48,45; Rev.22:17)
The Memorial intentionally takes place, as the fulfillment of the Jewish Passover (1Cor.5:7).
Who were the recipients of God's protection, salvation, and benefit of the original Passover?
Was it for all of God's nation, Israel?

No. Neither is it's fulfillment within the Memorial. 
See...
 The fulfillment of God's "Passover", is for the salvation of the "firstborn" from the Destroyer
(Heb.11:28; 12:23; Luke 10:20).
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2016/11/who-is-destroyer.html)

Regarding those chosen who prove their faith in Christ in very specific ways, Jesus said;
 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. 13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it." (see parallel to John15:16)
When Jesus spoke of these Chosen as being given Holy Spirit (John14:26), this is a clear reference to being anointed with it (1John2:20,27). (both say that the spirit will "teach you all things")
All these things were spoken of that very same night, to the 11 only, after Judas had left (John13:31), despite the fact that "many" others "put faith in him".
When Jesus said;
 "And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you." (John14:16,17)
...notice that he said that the spirit would "dwell with you and will be in you." (1Cor.6:19,17; 3:16; Rom.8:9; James4:5; Eph.2:21,22).
This is specifically for the Temple priesthood, in which "Temple", the Holy Spirit makes it's home (John14:23; 1Pet.2:5,9,10; 1Cor.3:16) and dwells within them.
I know that many believe that the Covenant for a kingdom was what Christ established with the 12 apostles; and that the New Covenant and it's forgiveness of sins, was for all...established separately.
There are two reasons to begin with, why this is error.

First, Jesus' sacrifice was for two differing groups....
"for the sins of MANY" (Matt.20:28; Heb.9:28)
"for the sins of the whole world" (1John2:2; 4:14; John4:42)
These two groups are not both under the New Covenant.
How do we know?
Please let me explain.
First,
Are these ("many";"world") really two different groups?
YES. Why?
Because the sins of "many" are atoned for "first". That "many" are the 144,000.
Yet this is not "the whole world".
This is the second reason why the New Covenant (which is NOW) is for the "chosen" only, just as the emblems were for the 11 only (during the Lord's Meal).
Please read Rev.20:4,5,6
Notice in verse 6 that the "first" resurrection (or "coming to life") is for the "priests".
The only way to "come to life" is to have one's sins forgiven (James1:15; Rom.5:12; 1John3:14; John5:24; 6:47), through being a chosen priest, and displaying the obedience and faith required through a specific test of that faith and obedience. (Luke17:33).

There is no escaping a fact.
Although those other than chosen priests can put faith in Christ; these do not have their sins forgiven, nor "come to life" first, under the New Covenant by means of Christ's blood (Heb.9:22).
So then, why did we also read that Christ died for the sins of the whole world?
If we return to Rev.20:5;  we see that in time, the "rest" "come to life".
This is "after the Thousand Years".
Clearly, the timing of forgiveness involves two different times, for two different groups. One is first, the other is second.
Christ's sacrifice pays for both, but not all at once.
The first group is first. These were at the actual Lord's evening meal. They were chosen priests...
just as Rev.20:6 states. These partook of the emblems in symbol of the New Covenant by virtue of Christ's blood. It was a covenant with those to be priests and kings (Rev.5:9,10). This would not be possible for those chosen, without this forgiveness.

It is by means of these priests and kings that the "rest" "come to life".
This is not under the "New Covenant", which is symbolized by the "woman" "mother"..."Jerusalem Above" (Gal.4:26,24).
(pearl-thewoman.blogspot.com)
Jerusalem above is the mother covenant/promise to the Chosen Priests only. These are given the promise to become the New Jerusalem Above (New Heavens -2Pet.3:13).
When the New Covenant is fulfilled, those virgins within that "woman"/Covenant/Mother, become the Bride of Christ (Psalm45:14; 2Cor.11:2) and are sealed into Temple Priesthood/Holy City. The promise/covenant toward them, is then fulfilled.
What then?
The completed Jerusalem above "comes down OUT of Heaven", to the earth,
bringing with it a new "woman"/covenant......The realization/materialization, of the collective Bride of Christ. She is no longer a promise in heaven, but a reality on earth. That Kingdom Covenant Bride will "come down out of heaven". (Rev.21:2) [Rev.12:1 (in heaven)>> Rev.12:6,14 on earth)]
It's members bring the restoration and healing to all of Creation (Rev.22:3,2,17).
THIS IS WHEN THE "rest" are forgiven and "brought to life".

This is not now, nor under the New Covenant/Jerusalem above/promise in heaven.
Therefore, the only ones to partake of the emblems of the New Covenant, are the chosen priests.
When Christ arrives and all those faithful chosen are taken to heaven, the emblems stop, because that Covenant is now fulfilled (1Cor.11:26). The first resurrection has then already taken place.
THIS IS NOT FOR THE WHOLE WORLD, ....YET!

It is very serious if one does not understand who properly partakes.
Such a lack of understanding means that one does not discern "the body" of Christ (1Cor.11:29). That "body"/Congregation is one spirit with Christ (1Cor.6:17) (as a wife is one flesh with her husband), and he is the head of the anointed Congregation.
These are those who become his Bride (Col.1:18; Rom.8:29; Rev.1:5,6; Eph.5:23,31,32,26; 1Cor12:27,12,14,18,20,27,28,29,30). These are chosen ones, designated to be a part of the cleansed body of Christ, to render the priesthood service according to your assigned place in that body and Temple priesthood.
As already discussed in previous posts, it is clear that this service is only for those who are cleansed and "circumcised" Temple priests (Rom.2:28,29; Eph.5:26; Eze.44:9; 2Chron.23:6; Num.3:10)
Is each partaker certain that they are a part of that "body" of Christ's holy priests? (1Cor.11:28,29; Eph.5:23)  (compare Eph.5:25; Luke22:19)  (compare Rom.8:17; 1Cor.10:16)
Heb.9:15,16

Regarding Acts2:38; John1:12-14 :

First, look at the context of John1...
10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God."

Please note that it was to "his own" that Jesus came (Matt.15:24; 10:6; Rom.15:8).
THE JEWS WERE ALREADY IN COVENANT WITH GOD. They were the physical seed of Abraham, and as such, had the first right to become heirs of the promises. They were the natural branches of God's vineyard. They would need to however, to transition over to the New Covenant, by accepting God's Son. The Old Covenant was passing away. Those who rejected Christ, would be "lopped off", and others grafted in to compensate for the deficit.

If a Jew accepted Christ, and proved their faith (Luke22:28; Rev.14:4) he automatically entered the New Covenant, according to the promises made to Abraham's seed. These are the ones who had "the right" to become "children of God" if they received his Son. (John1:12)
Because not all natural Jews did accept Christ (and were "lopped off" John1:11; Matt.3:9), the rest of the chosen priesthood was made of those "grafted in" (Rom.11:17; Acts13:46; Rev.5:9,10).
Do not assume that everyone putting faith in Christ is the same as the first century Jews in Covenant with God.
You have misapplied who become "sons of God" in this era in which we live.
In both Acts2:38 and John1:12; John1:13 ;  Peter was speaking to the Jews while yet in Covenant with God... not to "the whole world".

Only in the Kingdom to come, (under Christ and his completed Bride), will the rest of Creation be made "sons of God" (Rom.8:19,20,21,24,25; Heb.9:28; Rom.8:19; Heb.1:6; Acts3:21; Rom.8:21).
Again...
this is not the first resurrection, but a latter one (Rev.20:5; Acts24:15; 1John2:2)...
as well as a latter forgiveness of sins and a latter coming to life (Rev.20:5,6).
The fulfilled promises to these are in God's Kingdom,
not under the Covenant to the bride-priest-kings-heirs-those called.
Also worth mentioning is John1:13.
Faith and obedience of those NOT anointed is of their voluntary free choice of will.
Those "sons of God" being spoken of here, did not choose themselves, but were chosen by God (John1:13; 15:16; 1Pet.2:9; Col.3:12; Isa.43:10)

All are tested and judged now, but not all gain life and sonship now.
When the scrolls are fully opened and the mysteries of God are accomplished, all will be judged by the full revealed truth of what was written in them. (Rev.20:12,13; John12:48; Rev.10:7,8,11; 1:1; 1Cor.13:9,10; Rev.10:7)
The ambassadors of the Bride on earth offer truth and life to all now.
(John7:38; 4:14; Rev.22:17; 2Cor.2:16; 3:5; 2Cor.5:19,20; John20:22,23)
How these are treated by the world now,
determines how the world is judged (Matt.25:31-33,40,45-46; 10:40-42).
Christ's Thousand Year Kingdom is in our midst now (Luke17:20,21).
Now is the day of reconciliation with God, and the acceptable time to gain salvation (2Cor.6:2,1).

Regarding Acts19:2...
Notice that these did not receive Holy Spirit when they believed in Christ.
They received it when Paul
(one of the 12 apostles -http://pearl-whowasthetwelfthapostle.blogspot.com/)
"laid his hands on them"
 "And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied." Acts19:6
Paul was asking a question, not stating a fact. In fact, the context shows that they had NOT received Holy Spirit when they became believers.
Only the 12 could choose anointed (Matt.16:19; 18:18; John20:23; Luke22:30; Rev.7:4; Matt.16:18) from those invited tribes.... to receive forgiveness under the New Covenant. The apostles are the "foundation" of the Holy City, upon which the rest of the Temple is built.
(Luke22:30; Eph.2:20; Rev.21:14).
http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/01/reader-comments-and-question-good-day.html
and
http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/01/keys-to-kingdomangels.html
http://pearl-holycity.blogspot.com/

You have mis-applied Acts19:2 also, to support non-chosen, as partakers of the emblems. Taking the emblems of Christ's body and blood into our own body, is to symbolize the union of the one flesh/spirit Bride with Christ, for whom he gave his life) (Eph.5:25; Luke22:19; 1Cor.6:17; Rev.5:9,10).

Regarding John17:20:
I give you John20:29 and 1Pet.1:8.
Jesus was speaking of those who would become anointed chosen priests, after Jesus could no longer be seen in the flesh. Yet these too, would have a tested faith (Luke22:31; James1:3; 1Pet.1:7; Job 23:10; 1Cor.3:13; Mal.3:3; Rev.3:18)
Jesus says that they "put faith in him" "because of their message" (Mal.2:7; Matt.10:20; Rev.6:9-11). This is the test of those future priests to come
(John17:20; Rev.6:9,10,11; 19:8; 12:11; 20:4; Mark 8:35)

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


1Cor.11:27... "So then whoever eats the bread and drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord."

If we go on to read verses 18 and 19, it explains what would make one "guilty" of this. They read:

"Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread or drink from the cup. For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ, eat and drink judgment to themselves."

From these we may see that if we do not discern the body, in comparison to ourselves, we "sin" against the very body we do not discern.

The Bible tells us what body we are referring to. At first glance it seems simply, that we are talking about Christ's literal body. What is Christ's body, according to Eph.5:23,24,25,26,27,32; 1Cor.12:12,20,27,28,29,30 ?  If you read these verses, you may see that the "body" of Christ, are the anointed wife, under Christ as Head. It is this "body" we need to discern when we examine ourselves. The members of the "body" of Christ are referred to as Apostles, Prophets, Teachers, etc. according to the gifts of the spirit (Heb.2:4; 1Cor.12:11) as God distibutes that spirit to these parts of the Body.

If, when you "examine yourself", you do not discern this "body" of Christ....and discern whether or not you truly are a part of that wife, (as an apostle, prophet, etc.), (who will later "come down out of heaven" Rev.21:9,10) and yet you eat and drink these symbols of sharing in Christ's "one flesh" (1Cor.10:16; Rom.8:17) "unworthily", and share in the life's ransom he gave for "her" (Luke22:19; Eph.5:25); then this action is referred to, as having the consequence of "judgment".

In supplication and expectant Faith in the unity of Christ's body,

The Name

UPDATED X 2

Based upon a fellow anointed one's research and meditation, he sent me a letter about his concerns over God's name. The letter referred to a link which contained his article. I would like to share it with you, because the information caused some meditation of my own, and has resulted in a decision which I would like to share with you.
http://translate.google.com.br/translate?sl=pt&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&eotf=1&u=http://exatoverdade.blogspot.com.br/2013/03/testemunha-de-yahawah.html&act=url

After reading it, this was my response:


Hello Paulo,
I read your article. Thank you for writing it and also for sending me the link.
I also read the link in the last comment.
I found both articles interesting.
I will tell you my present impression...

Our heavenly father has told us that we are not to make any form and ascribe it to Him.
(Deut.5:8; 4:15-24)
This prohibition included any attempt to personify our God in any sort of representation or image.
This is because nothing compares to Him (Isa.40:18,25; 46:5), and He is a spirit which can not be represented by anything in the physical realm (John4:24; Phil.3:3).
The reason I discuss this is because I believe that it applies to God's name as well.
We know that in Hebrew (and according to the Hebrew meaning for "name" "shem"); one's name is a representation of who one is. "Shem" can also mean likeness, authority, character, renown, report, memorial, mark, fame, rank, majesty, and a representation of who someone is.

If we can not make a representation of the Heavenly One in any materials or forms we possess on earth,
how can we fully represent our Heavenly Father in a name we can speak?
How can the eternal omnipotent One be limited to any word men can utter?
(Amos4:13; Isa.47:4; Jer.10:16)
Perhaps this is why we were given YHWH without ever being taught (even by Jesus Christ), how this name was to be spoken. When Jesus said, "I have made your name known" (John17:6,26) I do not think he was speaking about a pronunciation, but a gaining of appreciation of aspects of God, through explanation (Matt.11:27; John1:18; 14:6)
God told us that He was to be referred to as "I AM WHO I AM", and "CAUSES TO BECOME".
Is it not true that these descriptions alone can refer to who God is, making his personality
(and His unsearchable name) limitless? Isa.55:8,9; Psalm40:5

Pharaoh knew what God was called, and the pronunciation of His name.
At Exodus5:2, Pharaoh's words are recorded...

"But Pharaoh responded, "Who is Yahweh that I should obey Him by letting Israel go? I do not know anything about Yahweh, and besides, I will not let Israel go."

That verse clarifies, that it is not simply a matter of knowledge of God's name and saying it, (as Pharaoh did) that fulfills truly knowing God, His name, and calling upon that name.
Knowing how to say God's name did not save Pharaoh.
He came to know the meaning of God's name, through experience...
As Exo.14:4 reads;
"I will harden Pharaoh's heart so that he will pursue my people. Then I will receive glory by means of Pharaoh and all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am Yahweh."

One of God's replies to Pharaoh is found at Exo.7:17...
"This is what Yahweh says: Here is how you will know that I am Yahweh. Watch. I will strike the water in the Nile with the staff in my hand, and it will turn to blood."

God is saying that His name becomes known, not by knowing the correct sound of how to say it,
but by knowing the meaning and power of the name,
including knowledge of God's ability to become whatever He wishes, in order to fulfill His Will.
Those truly familiar with that Name, develop trust in Him and that Name's meaning. (Ex.3:13,14; Prov.3:5,6).

When Jesus said,
"I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.” (John17:26).....
Jesus was speaking to Jewish men who already knew the simple fact of God's name and how to say it.
Obviously, this was not what Jesus had in mind in speaking of teaching others God's name.
    How long does it take to hear a name, and know how to say it? Only a moment.
Yet Jesus said that after making God's name known to his followers,
he continues to make that name known.
(John14:8,9,10,7; Col.2:9; 1:19; John1:14)
His stated objective?
That through a deeper knowledge of the meaning of God's name, they will come to love God (John17:26).
Pharaoh did not have such knowledge (Ex.5:2), despite speaking God's name.

Knowing God's name in the biblical sense then, is defined as appreciating and loving God as a person, and putting our trust in Him...
not as pronouncing a name, or repeating and using that pronunciation.

When we are told that "calling on the name of Yhwh" means our salvation (Rom.10:13; Joel2:32);


It speaks of those survivors, as those putting their trust in the meaning of that name, by relying on Him (Isa.10:20; 17:7,6; 10:22; Hosea3:5).


The only way our Exemplar Christ referred to God, was "Father". (*see some references below)
Certainly this reference and title "Father", is in harmony with "CAUSES TO BECOME".
Any pronunciation of YHWH would be to limit the meaning of God's representative name to an earthly tongue,
and in essence, to me, an earthly image.
I see the principle here as being the same as making an idol to represent God,
which as we know, God expressively forbade.

*Matthew 10:32-33
32  Then everyone who shall confess Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father in Heaven. 33  But whoever denies Me before men, I also will deny him before My Father in Heaven. (LITV)

Matthew 12:50

50  For whoever does the will of My Father in Heaven, that one is My brother and sister and mother. (LITV)

Matthew 16:17

17  And answering, Jesus said to him, Blessed are you, Simon, son of Jonah, for flesh and blood did not reveal it to you, but My Father in Heaven. (LITV)

Matthew 25:34

34  Then the King will say to those on His right, Come, the blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. (LITV)

Matthew 26:29

29  But I say to you, I will not at all drink of this fruit of the vine after this until that day when I drink it new with you in the kingdom of  My Father. (LITV)

John 20:17

17 Jesus said to her, Do not touch Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father. But go to My brothers and say to them, I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and My God, and your God. (LITV)

Matthew 6:9

9  So, then, you should pray this way: Our Father who is in Heaven, Hallowed be Your name. (LITV)

Mark 14:36

36 And He said, Abba, Father, all things are possible to You; take this cup from Me. Yet not what I will, but what You will. (LITV)

Romans 8:15

15 For you did not receive a spirit of slavery again to fear, but you received a Spirit of adoption by which we cry, Abba! Father! (LITV)

Galatians 4:6

6 And because you are sons, God sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, Abba! Father! (LITV)

While perplexed in the past as to why an exact pronunciation of God's name was unsearchable;
I now feel much closer to understanding why.
If God wanted us to know and correctly pronounce His name, could He not make us now able?
Why has He withheld this?
I believe that God's commands concerning a physical representation of Him as being impossible,
and as a consequence, God forbidding any such construction,
fully explains why we can not speak in all assurance, a concise, definitive expression of God's name today. (Rom.11:33; Job5:9; 11:7; Ps.139:6; 145:3; Ec.3:11; 8:17; Isa.40:28; Col.2:3)
If God's thoughts and attributes are too great for us to fathom; How then can we summarize His entire being in a name we can utter?
Why should we try? It would be like attempting to paint a picture of God, or make a statue of Him.
The results would only demean Him, pervert, and misrepresent Him.
Would one painting be better than another?
Would this also not be true of any "name" we could define and utter?

When Paul was in the power of Holy Spirit, and was taken into the spirit realm,
he refers to what he heard, like this.....
"And I know that this man--whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows--was caught up to paradise and heard inexpressible things, things that no one is permitted to tell." (2Cor.12:3,4)
I understand this, because what spirit can express perfectly in heaven, is not possible to tell accurately in the flesh on earth.
How much more so, the actual name of God?

I thank you for your pointing my attention to this subject.
I will, as I am able, transfer all my written references to God, from the assumptive name "Jehovah",
to the reference Jesus Christ always gave that One...."Our Father in the Heavens".

You may also wish to note however, that when God speaks of the destruction to come upon those who are "Jehovah's Witnesses", He says that they are "called by My name"/"Bears My name" (Jeremiah25:29,30).
We know this applies to them, due to the references to the wine press, in Rev.14.
When our heavenly Father inspired His Word, did not He himself know if "Jehovah" was referring to Him? He says that this name suffices enough to be known by Him as a reference to Himself. We should not dismiss what this clearly reveals to us.


Every and all aspects of a father, are not fully known by his young son,
nor is the title "father" (by which the young son addresses his father), a full representation of who the man is.
Just as it is acceptable for his child to refer to that man as "father";
so too, although we can not know the father fully,
we who aspire to become His children, can acceptably refer to Him as our heavenly Father.

We do know that aspect of God with enough accuracy to refer to Him as such.
He is our life-giver, and one One who "causes" us "to become".
Who are we to describe God ...by ascribing to Him a speak-able name?
If we depend upon a mediator for our relationship with Him,
because we are too unclean and imperfect...
are we not unable to perfectly describe God with our own word?
Even just to prophesy for God, requires a miraculous transformation of cleansing (Isa.6:6,7)

I will therefore not accept any definitive human pronunciation of the name of God, as if there were one on this earth.
I will not accept any definitive visible form of God, for the same reason.
Since God forbids any such physical form....
and has obviously withheld from us any audible form,
I accept His own constraints in forming any references made to him.
Yet I will not forget, that the scriptures reveal the name "Jehovah", as a name God himself recognizes as "my name" (Jer.25:29).

After all is said and done, we find ourselves back where we should have started...
imitating our Master Christ, who simply called the eternal God of heaven and earth,
"Father". (1Pet.2:21; 1John2:6)
I thank you again for calling my attention to this important subject.
Love in Christ,
Pearl

When I have time, I will post this at my website, with scriptures added.
That should explain to readers the changes I will consider making.

NOTE:
I also see included in your article, what appears to be references to pictures I included in my "Genuine Mountain" post, and the "capstone" of God's Temple (Zech.4:7,9). I hope you will consider that Satan has much knowledge of the scriptures and prophecy. He is trying to claim ownership of the Chosen ones. He does this also through blasphemy of the truth, which can include a claim to prophetic symbols of truth. This he does to mislead. He makes Truth and it's symbols look as if they are evil, belong to him, and are associated with falsehood. You do not realize how deep Satan's lies go. He has made good look bad, and bad look good. If you do not search the deep things of God, you will miss this reality.


This is a very difficult time. Remember that Jesus called it a “Great Tribulation”. It is a challenge mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually because that’s how Satan works. We know his main attack is on those chosen candidates to be heirs; but ALL those fighting the lies, lies both around us and within us, are under duress.
It takes time for each of us to “see the light”, and even longer to align our hearts and lives accordingly. Jesus has told us the best way to handle this time of test, and how to do our best in dealing with others. Number One, is Love. For every inch of progress someone makes, we should rejoice. Being on the path of life and moving forward is what matters, not how fast someone else thinks we should be moving. We each render an account, to God.
We are all under great pressure. It is not a time to hurt or criticize others. We speak truth. Not our truth, but God’s Word. To the best of our ability, we speak with “a mild temper and deep respect”. We do not always do this because the actions of others are worthy of respect. We do it for rational reason. Only God is good. Any light or progress we ourselves have, is of God’s grace.
If we fail in having a mild temper, and we lose our beneficial love, kindness and respect; we have then been conquered by the “evil”. Then our own actions are no more honorable than the ones we have judged.
How can we best help one another to come through the other end of this demonic tunnel?
Patience, courage, and love. These will not come all at once, but we can strive to cultivate them…
not only within ourselves, but support one another to bring these admirable traits to maturity.
Anything else, supports our common enemy.
Gal.5:13,14,15,16,17
