Wolves in Sheep's Covering


Subject: Personal Dedication to God lead to happiness?
(also see this link : LINK)
Question: 
Since you have been disfellowshiped, how do you feel? Do you now consider yourself a critic of JW? Do you still hope that one day you will join JW again? Do you appreciate that because of JW organisation you have learned the truth? Do you not believe that the members of the JW are chosen by GOD and that they take instructions from Jesus who is the head of the JW congregation?
If you do, then must you not obey them and be humble? In any organisation, there is always a leader and co-leaders and do we accept them as leaders or do we have our own ways of doing things? Will the organisation be peaceable if some members do not agree and don't wish to follow the chosen leaders?

Reply:

It is interesting to me that the stated "Subject" of your questions, refers to a "personal dedication to God". Yet all your questions to follow center around a dedication to men and their organization. Regardless, I will take one question at a time.

Since you had been disfellowshiped, how do you feel?

My feelings over being disfellowshipped are mixed and complex. This is not hard to imagine, considering what Bible prophecy has foretold (Rev.13:10,6,7; 14:12; John16:33,20; Rev.12:2,17; Luke9:22,23,24; Rev.6:9,10,11). My feelings can be catagorized. I will list those catagories from least significant to most significant.

First, there are my feelings about what my spiritual martyrdom has done to myself and my family. Second, is the effect my ostricism has had on my local congregation. Third, is the effect my tribulation is having on my relationship with Christ and Jehovah.

My personal feelings regarding myself, is a relief that I have finally fulfilled a major requirement for being sealed (Rev.6:9,10,11; Mark8:35; Matt.10:32). As a result of the wise decision to be loyal to God alone (Acts5:29), I have been graced with more Holy Spirit (Matt.13:12; 25:4,10), and it's resultant light of Truth (John16:13; 14:17,26).
What made the difference between my pre-expulsion faith and my present? Jesus said that "to him who has, more will be given. But to he who does not have, even what he imagines he has, will be taken from him.". While we are committing spiritual idolatry in ignorance, we do not really have all that we imagine we do (Rev.3:17).
We imagine that by means of our dedication to the visible Organization, we have God's approval and the True Bread. Once our hearts recognize our error and we repent and act in loyalty to God and His Word (Acts3:19; Eze.33:11; Jer.36:3), we then receive God's favor and His spirit (Isa.43:12; Jer.4:1,2; Prov.2:1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8; James4:8; Acts2:38; 3:19; Rev.11:3). The result, is that we are given "more" spirit and the insight that results.
The changing moment, is the repentance. This is the key to divine approval and blessing.
This is why the final prophets are donned in "sackcloth" (Rev.11:3; Joel1:13). These ones have repented of the worship of the Beast (Rev.13:8,7), and have rejected the trend of the masses which surround them. As a result, they are "caused to prophesy"...Certainly an indication that they have been given "more" (Rev.11:3,4; Zech.4:14,11,12,10,9). In being disfellowshipped, I have obeyed the guiding words and example of Christ (John10:11; 15:13,20; 1Pet.2:21; 1John3:16; Luke12:50; Rom.6:3,5; Mark8:35; Phil.3:10) and have proven my loyalty in the face of that symbolic death (Rev.6:9,10,11; John16:2; Isa.66:5; Luke6:22; Rev.11:7,8,9,10; 12:11; Matt.24:9). This is a requirement of all those anointed who hope to become sealed (Rev.6:11; 20:4; 12:11; Rev.2:10; Mark13:13). While I await my reward, I am in grief (John16:20,21; Isa.21:3; 26:17), because of the things I now see and understand (Ec.1:18; Rev.11:3; Ec.11:6; Ps.126:5; 2Tim.4:2,3,4,5)

Regarding the effect my disfellowshipping has had on my family; I believe that if it were not for Jehovah's sustaining love and comfort, I would be unable to bear up to facing that my own children have been mislead by Satan and have entered into judgment (Isa.49:21; Luke23:28,29; Jer.15:7; Eze.14:15; Mark13:12). As a result of me being disfellowshipped, Satan has tricked my own children to disobey God's clear laws (Luke10:16; Matt.15:4,5,6; 25:45), as well as causing them to reject one of Christ's brothers, which also justifies their destruction. This is the same result to those who attended the same Kingdom Hall that I did. They don't realize that by shunning a chosen one who has been persecuted for loyalty to God, Satan has tricked them into disobeying Christ, and his basic requirement for salvation (Matt.25:44,45,46).

In being disfellowshipped, I have followed Christ "wherever he goes" (Rev.14:4; Luke22:28; Matt.10:25,26; 16:21), including his steps into a shameful death and rejection by those claiming to be God's nation (Heb.12:2,3; 13:13; John8:40,43; Rev.11:8). Jesus set the example in projecting the right view of family ties (Matt.12:50).
Yet I am thankful that this has been a fine witness to my marriage mate, and has caused him to have courage and strength to likewise confess Christ and truth before men (1Pet.3:1,2; 1Cor.7:16; Prov.31:30). So my feelings about my family, are mixed.

Do you now consider yourself a critic of JW?
Because this question does not include your definition of "JW"; I think it is safe to assume that
you harbor a common misconception. In order to answer the question truthfully, that misconception must first be addressed.
Who are "Jehovah's Witnesses"? A familiar scripture tells us. These are the very same verses which "Jehovah's Witnesses" use to justify taking that label. Please re-examine those verses now, in the hope that as was the case with me, your misconception can be guided into accurate knowledge by means of the Bible.

Isa.43:10,11,12,21:
10 “You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,
    “and my servant whom I have chosen,
so that you may know and believe me
and understand that I am he.
Before me no god was formed,
    nor will there be one after me.
11 I, even I, am the Lord,
    and apart from me there is no savior.
12 I have revealed and saved and proclaimed
    I, and not some foreign god among you.
You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, “that I am God.
21 the people I formed for myself
that they may proclaim my praise.
22 “Yet you have not called on me, Jacob,
    you have not wearied yourselves for me, Israel.
28 So I disgraced the dignitaries of your temple;
    I consigned Jacob to destruction
    and Israel to scorn."

I have emphasized some of the points Jehovah's words make, because of their relevance to the misconception mentioned earlier.
The Witnesses referred to in this scripture, received that position, not from men, but from God.
Isa.43:10 clearly states, that Jehovah's genuine witnesses, are those "chosen" by Him (Rom.9:16,18; 23,24,21; 2Chron.16:9; Eph.1:14; 2Cor.5:5). These can not be those chosen and designated by mere men (Rom.2:29; Col.2:11; 2Cor.10:18; 4:7; John15:16,19). This misconception occurred based upon the assumption that Jehovah had already judged and appointed the "faithful and discreet slave" over all his belongings; and that God installed not only those 144,000 anointed slaves over Christ's total inheritance (Matt.28:18; Rev.1:18; 1Cor.15:24; Dan.2:44; 7:27) (2Thess.2:1,2,3,4), but all in association with them,
as His "witnesses".
This is not at all what these verses in Isa.43 say, nor what any of the end-time prophecies, indicate.
The symbolic last two prophets are called Jehovah's "witnesses" (Rev.11:3).
According to prophecy, every one of them are "killed" (Rev.20:4; 6:11).

The Bible makes clear who God's "chosen" ones are [Col.3:12; Luke1:78 (2Pet.1:19); Luke18:7; 1Pet.2:9,10; Deut.7:6).
It also makes clear what their assignment is (Isa.43:21; 1Pet.2:9). The assignment of the Priesthood is not to be rendered in the "Temple" by any other (Num.18:7; 2Chron.23:6; Heb.5:4; Eze.44:16). Only those chosen to be priests may render "acceptable service" (1Pet.2:5; Rev.5:9,10; Rom.15:16; Heb.13:15; Rev.1:6) in the Temple arrangement (1Cor.3:16; 1Pet.2:5; Eph.2:20,21,22).
Any other arrangement is considered an abomination by God (Eze.44:6,7,8,9; 9:4; Joel3:17), a "disgusting thing standing in the holy place" (Matt.24:15), "standing where it ought not" to be (Mark13:14)...."trampling" the priesthood of "holy ones" 2Chron.13:9; Lam.1:10; Rev.11:1,2; 2Thess.2:4; Rev.13:6,7; Dan.8:13; 1Chron.13:9,10; Matt.5:13).

The next point made at Isa.43:10, is that these ones whom God chooses, are given by God Himself....divine knowledge, understanding, and faith in and of the True God (1John2:20,27,28; 2Cor.5:5; 1Thess.4:8). These ones are then said to realize, that besides this True God, there is NO other identity to be served or worshipped.
Isa.43:11 adds the trait, that these chosen ones understand, that besides Jehovah and His expressed arrangement, there is no other means nor path of salvation (Eph.1:8,9,10,11,12; Isa.2:3; Rev.7:10).
Isa.43:12, Jehovah emphasized once again, that he himself is the only source of revelation, light, and divine proclamation among these chosen ones. No human mediator is cited (Matt.23:10; Gal.1:11,12). God's spirit is the source of knowledge to those chosen by Him (James1:5; Prov.2:5,6; Ec.2:26; 2Cor.1:21,22).

Jehovah also finds it necessary to clarify and repeat, that there is no other object of worship and service among God's witnesses. At Isa.43:12, God concludes by saying that these personal students of His, teach what they know (1Pet.2:9; Matt.5:14,16; 10:20) ....specifically, that only Jehovah is the God deserving service, fear, and worship (Rev.4:11; 1:6; 14:7; 19:1; Matt.22:37; Deut.13:4; Eze.2:3,4,5,6,7; Luke4:8; Matt.4:10), not an organizational mountain offering salvation (Rev.6:16; Zech4:7; Mark11:23; Rev.8:8; Rom.1:25; Rev.13:8).
This exclusive devotion indicates that only God is to be personally worshipped, served and glorified. This teaching would characterize God's genuine "witnesses"....but not the climate of God's people in the time of the end (Rev.13:8,7,10,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,4)

Isa.43:21 adds more detail about these genuine witnesses. It highlights the facts that this new creation is being "formed" by God over time, into a group with a purpose (1Cor.3:9; Heb.9:11; Rev.14:1). That singular purpose is to "declare" God's "praise" (Isa.43:21; 1Pet.2:9). This would exclude working to accrue praise for any other identity (Rom.2:29; Gal.1:10), nor pointing to it's worldly power for salvation or divine knowledge. This singular purpose would certainly NOT include procuring praise for oneself (John7:18,16,17; Luke17:10). For God does not share His glory and praise with any other identity. Jehovah's genuine and chosen witnesses, already know this (Isa.42:8).

Do we have any scriptural teachings in the Greek scriptures to indicate who these chosen witnesses are (since Isaiah is written to those in the Covenant that has already ended)? Yes...those chosen to be witnesses of Jehovah...those who continue to fulfill Isa.43:10-28 are identified under the New Covenant Nation (1Pet.2:9,10). The people God forms for himself to declare his praise, based upon the knowledge they have received directly from His spirit; are clearly identified for any who wish to be followers of Christ (John7:17; Matt.7:20).
But Isa.43:22,28 points to the misdeeds of those in covenant with God. We see that God divides His Nation in two. "Jacob" are the leaders who have turned to the power of the Nations rather than turning to God. "Israel" has subjected themselves to this arrangement and have become slaves to this new master. God says that instead of serving Him and declaring His praise...."Israel" is working tirelessly for something other than God. "Jacob" is not calling to God....not looking to Him for the provisions He has promised to provide (Isa.55:2; Rev.3:18; 13:17).

For God to proclaim that "Jacob" is consigned to "destruction"/"the curse" (Isa.43:28), is a fine detail which warrants further understanding. "Destruction" is also clearly identified within end-time prophecy (Rev.9:11; 2Thess.2:3; Rev.17:16,17; Jer.4:30)
We are also told that "Israel" is consigned to "scorn". God's people are here divided into two camps..."Jacob", and "Israel". Jacob suffers destruction. Israel suffers scorn. Why?
Destruction is a permanent judgment. The scorn of Israel, is temporary, according to God's own promise (Isa.54:7; Eze.14:22; Mal.3:2). God is just, and this scorn is deserved. The behaviour of Israel is in violation of the context of these very verses of Isa.43.
 According to Rev.13:8, "all the earth" at one point is worshipping the Wild Beast (Matt.24:24,25; Rom.3:10,11; Eze.22:30). This includes the "holy ones" (Rev.13:7; 9:10). This is why the faithful remnant of Israel (present in the time of the end) must repent in sackcloth (Rev.11:3,4); and learn to be willing to die for truth (Rev.6:9; 12:11) in order to be cleansed as prophets (Zech.3:4,5,6,7; Rev.19:8).

According to Jehovah..."Jehovah's Witnesses" are the anointed "chosen" ones, as long as they are:
worshiping God alone,
are taught by means of God's spirit and Word exclusively (John4:24; 17:17),
and like Jesus, they must preach and teach others to have an exclusive devotion and worship to God alone.

 In the time of the end, Jehovah's genuine witness prophets are only found among those who have repented of their violations to these commands.
So, when you ask if I am a critic of "Jehovah's Witnesses"...No....I do not judge my fellow anointed, who are proving faithful according to Jehovah's own definition of who His witnesses are (Rom.8:33; Deut.17:12; Luke6:37). This standard is according to Bible command (1Cor.4:5). You may realize though, that while I am not judging those who are working within God's guidelines at Isa43; I myself, have been judged by my anointed brothers, beaten, and thrown out by spiritual Gentiles who act on their behalf  (Matt.24:49,15; 2Chron.13:9; 1Sam.22:21; Rev.11:1,2,7; John16:2). Instead of obeying scriptural council, and coming to us personally; the governing body has dispatched it's "Beast"/Gentile elders (Matt.18:15; 5:23,24) to bully us. This is a cowardly act of opposition. It imitates the pattern of the Jewish religious leaders of the first century, who used the Romans to kill the "seed", Christ (Gal.3:16,29). This is the pattern of the adulterous harlot, riding the Beast (Rev.17:3,6).

Regarding the fact that I write admonition, corrections, and exhortations toward those who have been mislead into becoming counterfeit witnesses of God (Rev.13:16,18)...
(pearl-666.blogspot.com)
(Mark of Beast)
(Mark of Slavery)
I do so because the Bible commands God's genuine chosen witnesses, to do so with urgency (2Tim.4:2; 1Cor.9:16; Eph.4:25). Those who have been called into light, and all the grievous realizations that this entails, are directly responsible to herald this vital warning (Eze.33:1-9; Rev.14:7). There are many parallel prophecies concerning the time of the end, and the apostasy of God's chosen nation which has occurred (2Thess.2:4; 1Cor.3:16; Rev.8:10,11; 9:1; 13:11,9,10; 17:1,2; 2:20,9). Understanding the genuine message of the scroll of Revelation is key to conscious awareness of this condition. If a "chosen" one is neglecting to recognize these foretold realities, and declare them; That drowsiness will come at great cost (Rev.10:10; Eze.3:1,4,7,17,18; Luke12:46,47; Matt.25:30).

Do you still hope that one day you will join JW again?
I already consider myself as striving to fulfill Jehovah's own definition of who His witnesses are. This is not based upon man's estimation, designation, or approval, but upon God's (Rom.2:29; Gal.1:10; 1Sam.16:7; 2Cor.5:16; Isa.55:8,9).
If, according to the common misconception cited previously, your query is referring to those who have labeled themselves "Jehovah's Witnesses" in error;
I am guided by the words of Christ...
Once we see "the disgusting thing standing where it ought not" (Mark13:14);
we are commanded to flee and not to return (Luke21:21,22), nor take along anything with us (Matt.24:17,18; Luke17:31,32,33). This would include the false doctrines that previously covered and identified us.
I have "used discernment" to "catch sight" of that "disgusting thing" (Matt.24:15). Scripture and spirit clearly identify who these "uncircumcised" "Gentiles" are who have replaced Jehovah's chosen priests among the anointed "Temple" of the true God (2Thess.2:3,4; Eze.44:8; 2Chron.13:9; Lam.1:10) (1Cor.3:16; Eph.2:21; 1Pet.2:5). These counterfeit Gentile priests are "trampling" the chosen priests down, "throwing out" (expulsion/disfellowshipping), and usurping their position of responsibility (Eze.44:7,9; Rev.11:1,2; Luke21:24).

The organization of  "Jehovah's Witnesses" contains within it those in the New Covenant. Those leaders (Isa.28:14) who have left their holy covenant to fornicate with the power of the Gentile Beast and it's "spirit-directed" "Image"; are Harlots to Jehovah (Jer.17:5; 2:20; 3:3; Eze.16:15,30). They break their Holy Covenant with God, for the enticements of worldly power and riches. The anointed kings (who have not yet received their kingdom -Rev.17:12) who become part of the Beast (it's horns), are used by the ruling Harlot. These anointed within the Beast also break their covenant with God. They come under slavery to the Harlot, her Beast, and the mother Covenant of Death (Babylon the Great) to which the Harlot has entered with Satan (Isa.28:14,15,17,18; Rev.17:5).
 Bible record confirms that Harlots mentioned in scripture, are those adulterers who were in Covenant with God. All chosen ones are warned against association with such powerful Steward apostates (Harlot over the Beast/Organization) (1Cor.6:15; Matt.24:48,49). The anointed "ten kings of the earth" (Rev.5:9,10; 1:5,6), do not heed that warning (Rev.17:2; 1Cor.6:15; Rev.2:20).

This does not apply to the rest of the world's religions as it does to the anointed who are either leading, or being held captive within the Organization as its "ten horns" (ruling "with the Beast" Rev.17:12).
The rest of the world's religions are not members of the New Covenant, that they could break it. "Apostate Christendom" is a term used liberally to explain prophecy. But this term and it's meaning, is not scriptural. The "Jerusalem" and "Israel" cited in prophecy, are and always have been, for a certainty, God's own Nation in covenant.
You are in actuality asking me if I will once again accept the mark of the Beast Organization/"disgusting thing" (Gentiles ruling over the Chosen), and return to fornicating with the fallen star/Harlot/False Prophet. This is more revolting to Jehovah than asking me if I will go back to being Catholic. It is therefore, more revolting to me also.

Do you appreciate that because of JW organisation you have learned the truth?

I appreciate that when Jehovah's Word tells us that Satan is an angel of light and his ministers seem to be ministers of righteousness....that it is sure enough, true (2Cor.11:14,15; Matt.7:15; 24:24,25; Rev.13:7,8; Col.2:8; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13,14; 2Cor.11:3).
I appreciate that Satan has created a "threshing sledge" in the form of a Wild Beast, to oppress and sift those chosen who threaten to remove the creation and inheritance of the earth, from the Devil (Luke22:31; Acts14:22; Matt.24:22,23; Luke13:23,24; Matt.7:14). Satan has created a "great tribulation" to cause the anointed stars to fall (Matt.24:24,25; Rev.8:10,11; 12:4; Acts20:30; Dan.11:35; 12:10; Zech.13:9; Mal.3:3; Matt.24:48) . The world under Satan's control is not being tested. It has already been judged, is in sin, and under the power of death. As with Job, Satan is interested in those who pose a threat to his lasting power, authority and dominion. He is misleading the entire inhabited earth (Rev.12:9; 1John5:19). For a time this includes all the Chosen.
If you were baiting a trap....what would you use?
What is the best lure to trap the Chosen ones?
What is it that they long for and desire? (Matt.5:6; 2Cor.11:15; 1Pet.2:2; Psalm119:40,123)
How would you bait a trap to ensnare those who have been given "a little" Holy Spirit (Matt.25:21; Luke16:10; 1Cor.13:9)? Satan is much smarter than you or I. He baits his death trap with some truth (Matt.4:5,6). Remember....his ministers appear "righteous". They themselves even believe they are working for God (John16:2; Matt.7:22,23).

Do I "appreciate" that I was ensnared into believing that the Chosen are supposed to be fed by means of the wicked steward, rather than Holy Spirit? (violation of Isa.43:12)
Do I appreciate that expressions inspired by demons are killing my own children (Eze.14:20; 1Tim4:1; Rev.16:13)? Do I appreciate that I have been shown in vision the condemnation of millions of "Jehovah's Witnesses", who are on the line to the winepress of God's wrath (Rev.14:18,19; Deut.32:32; Joel3:13; Jer.25:29,30), and that they are all swallowing Satan's lies leading to death? (Rev.12:16). Am I appreciative that God's people are blind and deaf and can not be reached because of Satan's great test...his deceptive curse aimed at the chosen ones? (Isa.42:19; Rev.12:15)
I have not yet found anyone else on the face of the earth, who has been taken by the power of the Holy Spirit, to be shown the slaughter of all those branded slaves of false witness liars, who call themselves by the Creator's Holy name. As such, I think it likely, that I am actually the only one who really does "appreciate" the reality of how "Jehovah's Witnesses" are using some "truth". Remember... the "fallen" anointed "star's" "wormwood" waters, are not said to be all lies...but only "one-third" (Rev.8:11). ("fallen star" --Rev.8:10; 9:1; 1:20)

These counterfeit "witnesses" unwittingly go "door to door" with the bait....searching out the "firstborn sons" for Satan....
that they might take the bait...becoming ensnared and "destroyed" before they have a chance to grow to sealed maturity (Eph.4:13; 1Cor.2:6; Gal.4:19)....just as the soldiers of Herod sought through every home in Ramah, to destroy the promised seed (Rev.12:17; Heb.12:23; Rev.14:4; 2Thess.2:13,14; Matt.2:16,17,18; Isa.49:21; Eze.14:22; 6:8; 7:16; 12:16).

Like Paul, I did not receive my prophetic visions from an Organization, nor all my understanding and knowledge of Bible Truth (John16:13; 1John2:20,27; 1Cor.1:12,13; Gal.1:11,12,20). I was chosen as a prophet before I had any contact with the Organization (Num.12:6). I was brought in contact with the WT in order to have my questions about the identities in Revelation answered; and to warn those in Covenant with God. 
God's "people" inside the organization, are captives of Babylon the Great (Rev.18:4), her Harlot daughter/false prophet, and her Beast (Rev.13:7,10,16).

In speaking of the glory of the final remnant, Jehovah makes a clear point (Zech.4:6,9,7,14; Rev.11:3,4; 1Cor.1:28; Matt.23:12; Job22:29)...That the remnant's final victory over Satan and this world, are not through powerful, honored, famous, and exalted anointed men who are supported by an army of "Gentile" elders"; but through the "LEAST" of Christ's brothers, who are being slandered and killed (Rev.12:10,11; 6:11). These have the singular support of God's spirit (Zech.4:6,9; Isa.59:1; 52:10).
The Organization was the means by which I had implanted within my mind, many strongly entrenched errors, which I must progressively weed out as spirit forgives and guides me. (2Cor.10:5; Eph.4:25; 5:26).
For accepting and drinking from the Harlot's wormwood cup, (through which I had joined the Harlot in entering her covenant with Death); I am in sackcloth (Rev.11:3; Joel1:13; 2:13).

Do you not believe that the members of the JW are chosen by GOD and to take instructions from Jesus who is the head of the JW congregation ?

Jesus has told all of us...
"By it's fruit the tree is known." Luke 6:44.
Those who are truly in union with Christ as Head, will display the traits Jesus taught us to look for.
(pearl-finetrees.blogspot.com)
Again, you speak of the Bible's "Congregation" as the organization of  "Jehovah's Witnesses".
Yet the Bible's own definition of the "Congregation", is the "body of Christ" and the "Temple".
Christ is the head of the "Congregation" as a husband is head of his wife (Eph.5:23,30,25,26,27; 2Cor.11:2; Rev.19:7,8; 21:2. This is because the Bible's "Congregation" IS betrothed to Christ as wife. That wife is not "Jehovah's Witnesses" as you define them, but rather is the faithful 144,000.

Again...according to the Bible; the millions known as "Jehovah's Witnesses" are not the Congregation of the living God. The 144000 are (1Tim.3:15; Rev3:12; 2Cor.6:16; Heb.8:10). The anointed body of Christ....the wife under Christ's headship....these are those anointed "virgins" which remain in union with him (1John2:28; 1Cor.6:17; John17:26,24; Rev.14:4).
Regarding these anointed and chosen parts of Christ's body, yes, I do believe that these are chosen by God and take instructions from Jesus, according to the "parts" of that body (1Cor.12:12,27,28,29) as the Holy Spirit has distributed it's gifts (1Cor.12:11,8; Heb.2:4).

Yet according to Christ, "few" will find the road to life which these true prophets point the way to (Matt.7:14; John14:6; Rev.19:10; John1:4; Matt.5:14). In fact, prophecy tells us that the final prophets will be "slaughtered" and "killed" for what they preach, and will die like criminals at the hand of the Wild Beast's Image (Rev.11:7; 20:4; 6:9; 12:11; 11:8,10)....all because they refuse to accept the mark of an enslaved mind and power.
If you are saying that the general "members of Jehovah's Witnesses" Organization are chosen, and receive direct instruction from Christ, I would have to answer according to the truth of the scriptures. Not all are spiritual Jews (Rom.2:28,29) nor chosen to be priests in God's Temple. Those not chosen to render acceptable sacrifices to God and yet who go ahead and assume that there is no distinction between
 those circumcised in heart by spirit and therefore Holy (Rev.20:6; Heb.12:22,23,28)
 and those uncircumcised and still unclean by their sins;
stand condemned. (Lev.10:10; Eze.22:26; 44:23,6,7,8,9; Lam.1:10)

 It is precisely the inability to discern between priest and Gentile, that allows the "disgusting thing" to enter into the Holy Place. The anointed leaders/steward/Harlot, empowers the Gentile Wild Beast with spirit....not from God but from they themselves (Rev.13:15), giving it an appearance of divinity. That "false prophet" expects all to worship the image of that Organization as if it were God's Mountain Zion. This tresspassing of uncircumcised Gentiles into the Temple to serve as priests, is what incites Jehovah's wrath against the harlot, and all those who violate this expressed law. (Num.18:7; 2Chron.29:16; 1Cor.3:17)

If you are, then must not you obey and be humble?

I will assume, based upon your revealed orientation, that you are saying I must obey men.
(Gal.1:10; 1Thess.2:4; Rom.6:16; 1Cor.7:23; Acts5:28,29; Mark10:42,43; Col.3:24; Matt.23:10). You view authority as the world does. This is not the way among the faithful members of the wife/one flesh body of Christ....

"Calling them to Himself, Jesus said to them, “You know that those who are recognized as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them; and their great men exercise authority over them. 43 But it is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant; 44 and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be slave of all. 45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

Those who take the lead within the Body of Christ (Heb.13:17), are those assigned by God to do so (1Cor.12:18,28; Eph.4:11,12; Luke12:42; 1Cor.4:1; Eph.2:20; 1Cor.3:10). Yet our subjection to these is not to be automatic (2Cor.13:3,5; 1Thess.5:20-22). We are to first make certain that such prophets are genuine and faithful, and their teachings, inspired of God (2Pet.1:20,21; 1John4:1). Christ repeatedly warns all his followers, about false prophets, and their need to reject them, despite their many powerful signs and portents (Matt.24:4,5,11; Rev.9:1; 13:14,15; 19:20; 2Thess.2:8-12). Jesus tells us that such prophets will emerge with increased power, during the time of the end/Great Tribulation (Matt.24:24,25; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13-16; 13:8,11,15; 19:20).
Are we to mindlessly submit to these?
(2Cor.11:1-4,20; Rev.2:20; Heb.12:15; Eph.5:11; 2Pet.3:17; Rev.12:4; Col.2:8; Rev.13:10,7)

According to Christ's Revelation warning, [revealing "what must soon take place" (Rev.1:1)].....
Everyone (including God's Chosen Ones Rev.13:7; 12:9), obeys and idolizes the Beast and it's "spirit-directed"/spirit-infused Image/Idol (Rev.2:20,21; 13:12,14,15). As a consequence, they are not written in the Lamb's scroll of life (Rev.13:8).

 I must obey and be humble before my Lord and Head, Jesus Christ (Eph.5:23; 1Cor.6:17). If I do this with anyone else, I am an adulteress. I would be one of the "ten kings of the earth" committing fornication with the leading Harlot. (Rev.17:2; 1:5; Rev.19:16; John18:36; Rev.5:9,10).
Do you have any scriptures to support a command that an anointed priest "must obey and be humble" before spiritual "Gentiles" posing as priests and defiling Jehovah's Temple? (1Cor.3:16,17; Eze.2:6; Rev.9:3,5,7)

In any organisation there is always a leader and co-leaders and do we accept them as leaders or we have our own ways of doing things?
Please read Matt.23:8,10
How many leaders do faithful anointed have?
You would do well to reconsider the doctrines of men (Matt.15:9).
There is no "organization" in the Bible. Only the "building" God himself is constructing, to inhabit by spirit (Acts7:48,49; 1Cor.3:9,16; Eph.2:10; Heb.11:10; 1Pet.2:5,9,10; Rev.21:3,2).
Neither is there a "governing body" (Gal.1:15,16,17; Acts8:29; 13:4; 16:6,7,9,10; 1:5,8; 1Cor.14:32; Rom.12:6)
(http://holyspiritorgoverningbody-obadiah.blogspot.com/).
There is the body/temple of Christ, and there is an "administration" and kingdom. This mountain of Jehovah, is Mt. Zion. All these are the same thing.

The organization is referred to as a mountain ("Jehovah's mountain-like Organization"), but surely you must know that it is not heavenly Mt. Zion (Rev.14:1 --http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/02/jehovahs-genuine-mountain.html).
"JW's" are referred to as "God's visible Organization". This reference does not exist on earth (2Thess.2:1,2; Heb.12:22,23; 11:10; Phil.3:20), until the Kingdom from heaven is revealed to the entire creation, when Creation's full restoration has begun (2Cor.5:7; Heb.13:14; 2:5; 11:10,16; 12:22,27; 1:6; Acts3:21; 1:11; Matt.17:11; Rev.3:12; 21:2,3,4; Rom.8:19,18,21,24,25).
Before this Kingdom really arrives, a counterfeit mountain is prophesied to be pulverized (Zech.4:7,8,9,10,14; Rev.8:8) because it refuses to recognize God's own administration of chosen kings; but rather it persecutes, restrains, takes captive, opposes, and expels them; trampling them into submission, sleep, silence, and paralysis. This is not God's will at work, but Satan's.

God's true Nation of "Israel" (Rom.9:8; Gal.3:29; Rom.2:28,29; Gal.6:16; 1Cor.1:28) is not patterned after the powers of Satan's world. God's kingdom is not patterned after worldly organizations. The faithful anointed are no part of the world, nor patterned after the powers within it...all of which are to come to nothing (1Cor.2:6,8; Matt.12:14; John19:12). Take note that the 'governmental powers' in these scriptures were not political. They are the powerful opposers within those who rule over God's own "house"; just as was the case with Jesus.
The faithful put their trust...not in a counterfeit kingdom of imposters and false witnesses. Instead, they "await the City having real foundations".... which is not born from the power of the world or men, but made in heaven from the power and hand of God's spirit. (Phil.3:20; Heb.11:10; Col.3:2; Zech.4:6).

  To complete my response to this question, I always strive to NEVER to do things my "own way". I have "disowned myself" in order to be a slave of God and Christ, my true and only masters (Luke9:23; James1:1; Rom.1:1; Titus1:1; 1Pet.1:1; Rev.7:15; 22:3).
Jesus also faced an "organization" in his time, which also claimed to be leaders for God. Did God's Son "accept them as leaders", or did he "have his own way of doing things"? (Matt.23:33,13; John8:37,43,47) Who lead Jesus? (John8:29; 4:34; 15:10) So then, who should lead me? (1Pet.2:21; 1John2:6; 3:24; 4:17)

Will the organisation be peaceable if some members do not agree and don't wish to follow the chosen leaders?
Jesus said:
"Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword." Matt.10:34
"Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division." Luke12:51

Was it the priority of Jesus to bring peace and harmony between the Jewish people and the scribes and Pharisees (Matt.15:14; 5:20)?
What priority should the anointed today have? Peace with apostate leaders, while these lead God's people to death? (Jer.6:14; 1Thess.5:3,2; Isa.47:9; Eze.13:10).

Jesus never said that those who are steward, should become the Master. The Master is whom all the slaves must obey. The wicked steward comes to feel that HE is the Master. As such, he believes he has the right to unlovingly discipline slaves that do not belong to him (Matt.24:48,49; Rom.14:4; James4:11,12; 2:8).
Jesus gave the anointed a sober message...that they would never be at peace while in this world  but rather, war (Rev.12:17; John16:33; 2Tim.4:7; 1Tim.6:12; Gen.3:15; Rev.12:17).
To lull another into a false sense of security, is to speak like Satan (Matt.16:21,22,23; Dan.11:21).

This war of Satan's lies comes through powers and authorities which have set themselves up in opposition to the genuine kingdom (Eph6:12; 2Cor.10:2,3,4,5,6,7,12) This war will not end, until that final battle is won (Gen3:15; Rev.12:10,11; Dan.7:26,27). As long as Satan's world continues, the anointed have a battle with Satan's deceptive powers and those who promote them. This is not a battle that the anointed can justly abdicate by falling asleep....thinking that only the steward is responsible to obey the Master; or believing that their inspection and reward was completed 100 years ago (2Thess.2:1,2,3; Dan.7:25; 2:21).

The "low plain of the decision" is where all decide which side of this war they are on...the truth, or the lies (Joel3:2,7,9,11,12,13,14,17; Rev.16:13,14,15; 2Thess.2:9,10,11,12). To imagine peace before Satan's world ends, is a delusion which was prophesied.

Jesus and the truth he taught was not purposed to bring peace, but a sword. It will divide those who love truth, from those who love the present spiritual commerce (Rev.13:17; Jer.5:31), with all it's rewards and proud enticements (Isa.23:8; Rev.9:7; 11:10; Dan.11:32).
This great test will distinguish those who follow what they can see (a "visible Organization"), from those who through Faith, appreciate the unseen (1Sam.8:20,7; 1John2:15) (Rom.8:25; John4:24; 2Cor.4:18)
...those who worship the creation, rather than the one who created (Rom.1:25; Jer.13:25; Isa.44:20; Rev.13:16) those who worship by "arrangements" and doctrines of men (Eze.11:12; Mark7:13,7; Rev.13:11), rather than in spirit and truth (John4:24; 16:13; 17:17; Rev14:5);
...those who seek protection under the mountain that is now (Luke23:30),
or from the mountain to come (Rev.14:1);
...the glory of men, rather than the glory of God (John5:44; 12:43) (Exo.15:11; Isa.46:5).

All those at peace, while following the powerful Wild Beast (Rev.13:4) are in darkness. They do not know where they are going (John12:35; 8:12; 1John1:6; 2:11; 2Thess.2:10,11). They are all marked by the beast on their foreheads and hands.....their thinking and deeds are enslaved to this impressive power, which is covered with blasphemous names. Blasphemy. Do you remember  what that word means?
"All the earth" will worship the Wild Beast, and obey the false prophet who breaths life into it, and tells all the earth to worship an image of the Gentile Wild Beast. These things are fulfilled in such minute detail. Do you not recognize any of it???

This apostasy is so deceptive, that even the "Chosen" ones, stand to be mislead by it (Matt.24:24,25).
Are you?
This IS the Great Tribulation, designed to sift and separate those fit for the kingdom, from those unfit for life.
To whom will you be loyal?

  1. Sister Pearl,

    Well written - spirit guided - reply to this ones questions.

    Truly we are in a spiritual warfare.

    We must speak the truth of Jehovah's word and do the best we can to see through the deception of the watchtower organizaion.

    We must separate ourselves from it so that Jehovah can take us in as sons and daughters.

    Most in this organization are seized with fear of what will be done to them it they speak the truth of Jehovah's word.

    We need to help them see that perfect love of God's word helps us throw this fear outside.

    Yes we will suffer loss but our love of truth is noticed by Jesus and Jehovah and they will comfort us and help us through this time of tribulation.

    1. Dear Modise,
      Because of my fatigue and a desire to give the best possible sacrifice to God, I often review the posts I have written. Each time I do, I always think of more scriptures. I also find things which could be expressed more clearly. I am always editing and improving all the posts I can. I don't usually post a notice about these improvements, so as to not exasperate my readers any more than is necessary.
      Readers may not realize that I must post before I can edit. This is because the drafts do not function with scripture pop-up.
      I have to post first, then check that all the verses have been typed correctly. During this editing, I often find that some of my expressions are unclear, or can be taken more than one way. Sometimes this takes a few days to finish, if the care my mother requires increases, or if my health collapses.
      I can only assume that my imperfections (along with imperfect posts) are acceptable to our Heavenly Father, since He knows I am doing my best. While He knows that the best version of a post is yet to come, after much "polishing"; I guess He knows that His message will reach all those He wants it to. This also gives me the opportunity to prove my diligence, and desire to perfect my offering as much as I can.
      So I apologize for the gradual improvements. I suspect that the grandest time of learning from what I have written is yet future. By the time these arrive, things should be in the best shape I can make them.
      Thanks for noticing the improvements, and for being among the first ones who witness "small beginnings" (Zech.4:10). Love, Pearl
