Those not anointed-what benefit now?

I RECEIVED TWO QUESTIONS:

1. Why did God not simply decree that all who would obey Him could live forever?

Actually, God has made this decree quite clear, numerous times.
It began in Eden.
When God gave Adam and Even perfect, endless life; it is reasonable to assume that they would have retained this, if they had obeyed him. He in effect, decreed endless life for obedience, when he notified Adam and Eve of the alternate consequences of disobedience (Gen.2:17).
Living forever has requirements. "simply" stating that obedience leads to eternal life, could be misleading, because obedience and the knowledge that leads to it, is not "simple", because Satan is constantly working (with powerful signs and portents) to veil the path to life (Hosea 4:6; Isa.5:13; 2Cor.4:3; Rev.12:9; 13:14; 2Thess.2:9,10).

Remember that Job also revealed his hope of "living again" based upon his sustained efforts to please God (Job 14:14,15; Job 1:1,5). This resurrection hope is attested to throughout the Hebrew writers.
And then of course, we know that Christ brought with him the confirmation of that hope (Matt.7:21; 1John2:17; Acts 17:31; 2Pet.1:19).

You may wonder though,
Why do obedient ones still have to die before they receive eternal life (Jude 1:21)?

We are all born corrupt and sinful. And as we know, sin brings forth death
(Rom.3:23; James 1:15; Rom.5:12).
We can not redeem ourselves nor our fellow humans, even if we are obedient (Psalm 49:7,8,9,10).
But now that the ransom is paid, why are we still dying?
The kingdom of God has not yet arrived. It arrives, when all Christ's enemies, are brought to nothing (Ps.110:1; 1Cor.15:25) and Jesus hands his victory, over to his Father (1Cor.15:24). The reason why we still die, previous to the arrival of God's Kingdom, is because, Death, is Christ's last enemy (1Cor.15:26).
The subduing of Christ's enemies, is through members of heavenly Zion (Ps.110:1-2; Rev.2:26-27). Before the last enemy (Death) is conquered, it must arise and battle with those who have been granted life (John5:24; 6:50; 3:6-7; 1John3:14). After Satan's release from the abyss (Rev.20:7-8) he wages war with the last of the anointed (Rev.12:17; 17:14). Satan is able for a time, to bring them under the power of his agents of death (Rev.13:7; 9:10). Only by conquering the agents of the abyss of death, is death finally conquered. This is accomplished during the time of the fourth living creature (Rev.6:7; 20:9,14; 11:5; 12:10-11) and the fourth Beast.
Previous to the arrival of God's Kingdom, Satan's authority and dominion (deception and death -John8:44), still exist (1John5:19; Heb.2:14). Jesus will soon reverse Satan's authority over death (Heb.2:14,15; 1John3:8; Rev.1:18; 3:7; Matt.16:19; Isa.22:22; John20:23), when his kingdom/Temple is finally finished with construction (Eph.2:20-22; 1Pet.2:5; 1Cor.3:16), and all it's members successfully "conquer" Satan (Rev.12:10,11,7,8) with God's and Christ's power (Rom.16:20; Gen.3:15; Luke 10:19).
That conquering (Rev.12:10,11) means life (Rev.2:7,10; 3:21; James 1:12; Matt.24:13).
(1Cor.15:24,25,28,26; John 5:24; 1John3:14; 2:10; 5:2; Eze.37:14; Rom.8:13)
This conquering of Satan and his seed (previous to Satan's release from the abyss), occurs during Christ's kingdom of a "thousand years". When Satan is released, there is a "short period of time" in which the great tribulation and Armageddon take place. During that time, the agents of Death take captive God's Chosen priests (Rev.13:10; Col.2:8; Matt.24:24-25) and cause their sacrifices to God, to be suspended (Dan.7:7,21,25-27; 8:10-12,17,19,24-25; 2Thess.2:8) (Dan.11:31-33; Luke21:24; Dan.8:13; Rev.11:2; 13:7), as the Temple is being trampled by Satan's agents, the "Gentiles".
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/09/trample-how-does-it-happen.html)
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2015/06/the-greatest-tribulation-why.html)

That "fear of death" (Heb.2:14,15) includes a fear of it's agents, whose agents can hold the chosen ones under the power of the abyss of deception and death (Rev.9:1,3,10) after Satan is released from the abyss (Rev.9:1,11; 13:4,7).
God has told us not to fear the faces of these ones (Prov.29:25; Eze.2:6; Isa.51:12; Jer.1:8,17,19; Eze.3:9; 28:24) (see NKJV for Jer.1:8 "faces"), who only have the faces of men...not of gods (Rev.9:7; Eze.28:2,9; Isa.2:22).
If we fear them more than Almighty God (Isa.51:12; Ps.118:6; 9:20; Jer.17:5); then we commit idolatry (2Thess.2:4; Rev.13:8; Num.14:9,24,37,38). We must fear God alone (Jer.17:7; Matt.10:28; Rev.14:7; 4:11).
Once we are freed from this captivity (Rev.13:10,16; 9:14; Heb.2:15; Luke 10:19) (Gal.2:4; Col.2:8; John8:32); we are freed from slavery to these agents (Rev.9:5,10; 1Cor.7:23; 15:55,56,57,54) and their power (Rom.8:2; 6:16,22; John 8:32,36; Jer.31:11). Death, is then, conquered.

The anointed do not enter into glorious life, without all these requirements...
 obedience AND the ransom of Jesus Christ AND the end of Satan's power over them.
The end of Satan's power has occurred with individual anointed ones (1Pet.5:10; 1John2:14; Eph.1:20,21,22,23), but not yet with all creation (1John5:19; Luke 4:8; John17:15; 1John5:18; Gal.1:4; Rom.8:19,25).
  This brings us smoothly into your next question...

2. Who besides anointed Christians are experiencing benefits from Jesus' sacrifice and life?
    How will these receive benefit?

We know that the anointed enter into the kingdom through many tribulations (Acts 14:22; 2Tim.3:12; 1Pet.4:13; 2Cor.1:5; Rom.8:17). This is compared to the labor a woman suffers and endures, before her child is born (John 16:21,22,6; Isa.26:17).

  This illustration of "childbirth" scripturally applies to many prophecies.
For example...
*The progression of the anointed from conception/"begotten" of incorruptible seed to  "birth"/seal. (Mark 13:8; Matt.24:8; John 16:21,22; Isa.26:17)
*The consequences to come upon the wicked (Hosea 13:13; Micah 4:9; 1Thess.5:3)
*The pain of creation since it's fall into sin (Rom.8:22).
*The agony the New Covenant-mother/Jerusalem above, goes through (made of those already sealed) until all her full number of firstborn sons are completed (Isa.37:3; Rev.12:1,2,5; Gal.4:19; 1Thess.2:7; 3John1:4).

Throughout the spiritual maturation process/cleansing, refinement of a chosen one, they are under a promise (New Covenant/mother in heaven Gal.4:26,28). This compares to a child developing in the womb. (Ps.110:3; 1Thess.5:5; Judges 5:2; Micah 5:7; Gal.4:19) Once sealed (and born), they continue that growth, to become full representatives of that Covenant (Christ's 'Bride'/"Christ fully formed in you") and channel it's benefits to others as that mother in heaven (2Cor.5:20; 1Cor.4:1; Isa.42:6; Acts 13:47; John 7:38; Rev.22:17; Matt.5:14). These sealed ones are no longer subject to death (Rev.20:4,5,6; John 5:24; 1John3:14). They bring Christ's kingdom into the midst of fallen mankind...
to offer life by means of truth and light.... given them by Holy Spirit.
These symbolic "trees of life" (Ps.1:1-3; Rev.22:1-2; John15:16; Matt.7:20), offer "fine fruit" that provides spiritual healing (James 5:14-16). That "fruit" is their testimony of truth from in their hearts (Luke 6:43-45) wherein holy spirit, lives (Eph.2:22; John7:38-39; 2Cor.1:22; 1Cor.6:19; Matt.10:20).

When the agents of life, provide the fruit/sayings of life, so that others who hear and accept (John13:20; Luke 10:16), might also live (John6:63; 12:49; 20:21).... then the heavenly "mother" covenant/promise, made to the Chosen, is fulfilled. They are now that woman/covenant in heaven (Eph.2:6) and permanent members of that "City"/Temple (Rev.3:12; Prov.9:1).
(Luke 17:20,21,23,24; 2Cor.5:18,19,20; Matt.5:14,16; 1Pet.2:9; Mal.2:7; John7:28,29; 14:16,17,26; 15:26; 16:7).
They can then offer living water, to all (Rev.22:17; 19:9; Matt.22:8-10).
Those who accept the guidance of Christ's Bride, to share in the conquering of Death, will also live.
  *But note also at Rev.22:17, that "anyone 'hearing' " (Matt.13:16), can also share in doing
   the inviting to the marriage feast. Any who partake of and appreciate the opening of the scrolls,
   can share the provisions with others, by inviting them to the same feast of living waters.
   In doing so, the "crowds can be fed" (Mark 6:41-42) by "five loaves"
   (Matt.25:1-2,10; John 12:24; 1Cor.10:17) and a "two fishes" ["Gentiles" (not anointed)
   that are harvested from Satan's "sea" (Matt.13:48-49)(Leviathan),
   who speak truth John 8:17).
   ("What is 'Jew'/What is 'Gentile'"?").

The reason I bring the labor of that woman, is because there is a final birth being spoken of...
The birth to life of those not anointed (Isa.66:7; 54:1; Gal.4:27).
This occurs under God's kingdom of sealed 144,000. The completed bride of Christ will bring these forth into life,
without any pain for "her", or for her earthly "seed" (Isa.66:7,11; Joel3:18; Rev.21:2,3,4,5; 22:1,2,3,17; John5:28,29).

This partly answers your question, as to the un-anointed "experiencing benefits" from Jesus.
Christ's ransom pays directly and first, for the anointed. Once these are redeemed and become a part of the Kingdom Covenant's construction, the Temple of God/bride, grows further toward completion (1Pet.2:5; Eph.2:20,21,22; 1Cor.3:16; Eph.1:10,11,12).
In the meantime, the teachings of Christ advise others (not anointed) to "receive" and "listen" to his faithful brothers (John13:20; Matt.10:40; 2Cor.5:20; Zech.8:23; Rom.2:28,29; Col.2:11). These faithful slaves work hard to provide understanding and guidance (2Tim.4:2; 1Tim.4:16; Mal.2:7). Jesus also teaches allhow to identify which anointed kingdom ambassadors are providing that fine fruit for life (John15:4,5; Matt.7:20 pearl-finetrees.blogspot.com ).

By the treatment all (those anointed and not anointed) give the faithful anointed, these are judged with finality (Matt.25:40,46; Heb.13:2; Matt.10:42; Heb.6:10; Rom.8:33; Matt.7:1), because how one treats these, is a direct result of one's response to the Truth the faithful declare (John10:27; 12:49; 16:13; 1John4:8; John14:17; 2Cor.2:14,15,16; 1Cor.1:18,21; 2Tim.2:21).
The ability to discern the faithful (who are offering food for life) is a gift from Jesus and the Father, to the non-anointed (John6:44; 13:20; 10:27; 7:17). This is a "benefit of Jesus" to those not anointed, that they should use right now.

In time, the benefits of both Jesus Christ AND the New Covenant, will reach all creation (1John2:2; Gal.4:26; Rom.8:19; Heb.9:28; Acts 3:21; Matt.17:11; Rom.8:21) when Christ hands his fulfilled kingdom over to his Father, for God to begin the eternal Kingdom of God (1Cor.15:24,25; Matt.6:10).
But it is imperative to recognize the how and when. Otherwise, if you confuse and overlap the stages of salvation, it results in confusion ("Babylon"); and a diverting from the path of life and it's necessary guidance for the individual.
The application of the ransom of Christ for the second resurrection,
and the life provisions under the fully formed, completed and Materialized New Covenant (Christ's Bride),
is delivered for all physical Creation under the Kingdom Administration to come, under God's future Kingdom. The ransom is first applied through the Promise/Covenant/mother in Heaven for the first resurrection (Gal.4:26; Heb.6:12; Gal.3:29). That period is now. This is Christ's "thousand year" reign. Once this purpose/promise, sees fulfillment in the full administration of Priests and Kings (Rev.5:9,10; Rom.8:24; Heb.11:1; 1Cor.6:2; Dan.7:18,22; Rev.20:4; 2Tim.4:1,2; Eph.1:10; Acts 17:26; Jer.27:5; Hab.2:3; 2Pet.3:9; Zeph.3:8).
the Kingdom government is ready to remove Satan's rule (1Tim.4:1,2) and restore all Creation ( :21; Matt.17:11; 19:28; Rom.8:21,19) under God.
Yet even now,
those who "accept" and "receive" the faithful brothers of Christ, can be "written in the Lamb's scroll of Life" (Matt.10:41), which he presents to his Father. This favorable judgment for those who remove the mark of the Beast (Rev.13:8; 14:9,10,11; 15:2; 17:8; 20:15; Matt.10:41), includes an invitation to the Marriage feast of unveiled revelations, and the blessing of eternal life (Matt.10:41,42; 7:8; 22:8,9,10; Rev.19:9). This is certainly "a benefit from Jesus", and it is available to all,  right now!

John the Baptist, Yesterday and Today

ADDITIONAL UPDATE TO YESTERDAY'S POST ABOUT JOHN THE BAPTIST

In speaking of Matt.11:11 and the Organization's doctrines of error, (which claim that anointed ones are greater than John the Baptist, and that John did not qualify to be anointed), I would like to add to yesterday's post, the following:


John the Baptist, who suffered deprivation, was filled with God's spirit, and was beheaded for his faith (Luke7:24,25,26,27,28; Matt.14:11), is greater (Matt.11:11) than any anointed one before they are resurrected into the kingdom.
Why do many of those called and chosen, prove to become despicably unfaithful?
 (Matt.24:48,49,50,51; Heb.10:26,27; Matt.22:8; 25:30)... and thereby, do not enter the kingdom? (Matt.5:20; 7:21; Luke13:24; Heb.3:11). They leave holy spirit, and it's direction (Col.2:19; Rom.8:9,11).

Jesus referred to John as "a reed swayed by the wind".
This "wind" is God's spirit (Ec.11:5; Eze.37:9; Acts2:2,4). Those who allow it to move them....
those "swayed" by it are referred to, at John3:8, where Jesus said:
"The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit."

Those born of this wind are directed by it and relay it's sound, though others do not understand how these are directed. John fully fulfilled Christ's description of him, as a reed swayed (and born) by God's spirit. He referred to him as Elijah the Prophet (Matt.17:12,13; Isa.40:3; Matt.3:3) which figure stands (along with Moses) as a symbol of the greatest anointed prophets in the kingdom (Matt.17:2,3). This symbol is also for one of the last two prophets (Matt.17:10,11,3; (Acts3:21; Rom.8:21; 1Cor.13:10; Matt.25:6; Rev.16:12) Rev.11:3,4; Zech.4:3,4,9,11,12,14), as referring to the purpose, responsibility, and role of these last two; along with the meaning of what it means to be "Moses".

All those of "Elijah" prepare the way just before God's arrival, ...to call God's people to repentance and preparedness.
All those of "Moses" give a witness to the Gentile powers which hold God's people captive. They lead God's people to freedom, and relay God's laws and requirements, previous to their entry into the longed for Home of Paradise.
These two last prophets to God's people (according to God's promise and prophecy) are needed, and present at the end of our age, just as the scroll of Revelation establishes.

Greater than John the Baptist?


A COMMENT WAS LEFT concerning what Jesus said in Matthew 11:11 :
11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not arisen a greater than John the Baptist. Yet he that is but little in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he"
  If I BELIEVE Jesus words more than yours (that John the Baptist is of the anointed), am I wrong ?
Thank you for considering my thoughts.

MY REPLY:
Please consider more of Jesus words, as well as taking a closer look at the verse you reference....

"Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not arisen a greater than John the Baptist:
yet he that is but little IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN is greater than he."

Your interpretation exposes that you do not realize that previous to Christ's ascension into heaven, the kingdom of heaven was not opened for Christians including the apostles (John 7:39; Luke16:16; Phil.3:14; John3:13). Once Jesus presented his ransom sacrifice, it's benefits were retroactive (Matt.8:11; Luke13:29; Isa.59:19; Mal.1:11).
At the time that Jesus spoke those words at Matt.11:11; John the Baptist, the apostles, and all those chosen (John13:18), did not yet have their citizenship in the heavens (John7:39; 1Cor.2:12; Phil.3:20; Heb.12:22-24; Rev.5:9-10).
When they do secure it, those representatives of it (while on earth) will indeed be greater prophets than even John the Baptist was as a mere man of flesh/born of woman/born under the Law covenant. No one born under the Law covenant of Moses, was greater than John the Baptist. John died before Christ, and before the New Covenant was established by virtue of Christ's shed blood.
New Jerusalem is God's New City, consisting of those from the New Creation.
Members of that New Covenant, become the dwelling/Temple, of God's spirit (1Cor.3:16)
Do you realize that just as the "Word" became flesh AND DWELT AMONG US (John1:14; Phil.2:7; Rev.22:3) (the meaning of Emmanuel Matt.1:23); so too will New Jerusalem "come down OUT OF HEAVEN" and DWELL AMONG MANKIND (Rev.21:3)?
Then too, "God is with us" will exist through them...the "tent"/"tabernacle/Temple of God (Eph.2:21,22; 1Cor.3:16; 1Pet.2:5,9) that "comes down out of heaven" to be present with mankind.
(Heb.1:6; Acts3:21; 1:11; John1:51; Heb.9:28).
Even after Christ's death, those sealed as slaves of God are members of God's Temple/Holy City (Rev.3:12), and they bring God's reconciliation/New Jerusalem/waters of life/healing "fruit", within the reach of mankind, for those who accept them (2Cor.5:20; Mal.2:7; Col.1:20; Rom.5:10) (Rev.21:3; 22:1-4,14,17; John7:38).
When God's Kingdom arrives through them, these resurrected king/priest representatives of New Jerusalem (Rev.3:12; 20:6) will not only do works superior to John the Baptist, they will even do works **greater**  than Jesus Christ did!!! (John14:12,2,3)
According to your reasoning,
does that mean that Jesus is not an anointed Kingdom Heir either?

Due to sheer timing, is John the Baptist exempt from being a New Covenant vessel of God's spirit, though having been a faithful harbinger of God's spirit while under Law?
The scale of healing which God's future, eternal Kingdom will bring,
has never been seen on earth before, through either John the Baptist or even through the human Jesus.
Christ has now ascended to the Father, and has received all authority in heaven and on earth (Matt.28:18),
to completely neutralize all the works of the devil (Ps.110:1-2; 1Cor.15:25). Those victorious with him, will share in the "joy of their master" (Matt.25:23; Luke19:17), restoring all the new creation, to a fullness of life (Rom.8:19,21).

Remember, those "in the kingdom of heaven" are no longer simply "born of woman"/"Haggai" (Gal.4:24; Heb.8:7) (Job 14:1,2; 1Cor.15:42; Gal.4:24) as John used to be (Matt.11:11).
These in the kingdom to come, are born again, as spirit (1Cor.15:50; John3:3; 1Pet.3:18; Rom.6:5) under the new mother covenant of life (Gal.4:24,26) as John the Baptist himself also is now. He too (as a new creation) will also do works greater than Jesus did, which will certainly exceed what he did as a man of only flesh "born of woman" and born under the Covenant of the Law (Mark1:7; Gal.4:24; Heb.8:7; 7:11; Gal.4:26). John did not become a part of the New Creation in his earthly lifetime, only because of his dying before it's inauguration. This does not exclude or preclude John from being born again/resurrected, under the new mother covenant, afterward (Gal.4:26; Rev.12:1; John5:28-29; 11:25-26). John11:25-26 shows the distinction between those who die before the mother covenant of life exists, and those who live after it's inauguration. Those who die before, will still "live" by means of that same mother covenant (Luke20:38; 13:28).

  Please reason on this point...

If John the Baptist, who suffered deprivation, was filled with God's spirit, and was beheaded for his faith (Luke7:24,25,26,27,28; Matt.14:11), is greater than any anointed one before they are sealed and become spirit/"angels" (Matt.22:30; Rom.8:9,11; 1Cor.6:17; 1John4:13; 5:13; 2Cor.5:17; John5:24; 6:47,50); why do many of those chosen invited prove to become despicably unfaithful, betray their mother covenant, and fail to receive the promises/born under the mother covenant of life?
 (Matt.24:48,49,50,51; Heb.10:26,27; Matt.22:8; 25:30) How could the unfaithful Chosen, be "greater" than John? They, though proving unfaithful, are still "of the kingdom"/Chosen heirs. To obtain the kingdom, one must be "called, chosen, and faithful" (Rev.17:14) (Luke13:28).
Your point... that John cannot be an heir of the kingdom, simply because he was not chosen after the inauguration of the covenant;
ignores that life can come to those faithful, after their physical deaths...
and death can come to those unfaithful, even after having been chosen.
John the Baptist is greater, than the unfaithful (Matt.5:19)....
not through the life he already had (under the Law Covenant) when Jesus spoke (Matt.11:11);
but through his life that was to come, in the kingdom.
And of all those born of woman/Old Covenant, John was the greatest (Matt.11:11; 5:19).
**What makes one under the kingdom, is which covenant you are under.
Those under the old covenant, can never be greater "in the kingdom", as one under the New covenant. John was still under the Old Covenant, at Matt.11:11. When John is resurrected, he will be under the New Covenant...
and "greater" than those who betrayed it.

"Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women (slaves under the Law/old covenant/ slaves of their sins Gal.4:24; Heb.8:7; 10:1,4; Rom.8:3) there hath not arisen a greater than John the Baptist. Yet he that is but little in the kingdom of heaven (Matt.18:10; 19:14; 1Cor.14:20; Rom.16:19; Gal.4:26,28; 3:26-29; Rom.2:28-29) is greater than he".
Why?
Because those "of the kingdom"/New Covenant/heirs of the promises made to Abraham, are born of a better covenant mother, who is free of sin and death, through the ransom of Christ.

Jesus referred to John as "a reed swayed by the wind".
This "wind" is God's spirit (Ec.11:5; Eze.37:9; Acts2:2,4). Those who allow it to move them....
those "swayed" by it are referred to, at John3:8, where Jesus said:
"The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit."

Those born of this wind are directed by it and relay it's sound, though others do not understand how these are directed. John fully fulfilled Christ's description of him, as a reed swayed (and born) by God's spirit (Gal.5:25,16). He referred to him as Elijah the Prophet (Matt.17:12,13; Isa.40:3; Matt.3:3) which figure stands (along with Moses) as a symbol of the greatest anointed prophets in the kingdom (Matt.17:2,3).
This symbol is also for one of the last symbolic "two prophets" sent by God (Matt.17:10,11; (Acts3:21; Rom.8:21; 1Cor.13:10; Matt.25:6; Rev.16:12) Rev.11:3,4; Zech.4:3,4,11,12,14,9; Rev.22:6), as referring to the purpose, responsibility, and role of these last symbolic "two" (John8:17);
along with the meaning of what it means to be "Moses" (sent to set God's people free from captivity).

  Those of "Elijah" (with "Elijah's spirit"), prepare the way just before God's arrival, ...to call God's people to repentance and preparedness (Luke1:17).
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2016/01/elijah-turns-hearts.html)
  Those of "Moses" give a witness to the Gentile powers which hold God's people captive. They lead God's people to freedom, and relay God's laws and requirements, previous to their entry into the longed for Home of Paradise.
These symbolic figures that represent the "two" last prophets to God's people (according to God's promise and prophecy) are neededand present at the end of our age, just as the scroll of Revelation establishes.

If you want to know more about how and why these kings and priests are greater than John the Baptist was, while he was still merely "born of woman"/born under law (Gal.4:4) [before the establishment of the New Covenant (Gal.4:24,26), through Christs presentation of his ransom in heaven],
(and why John himself will be greater, once he too is glorified "in the kingdom of heaven" -Rom.8:18,19; Phil.3:21; 1Cor.15:43),

"Babes" and "Bait"

I have received two questions, which are  highlighted as follows:


#1. How would one answer a brother or sister who points out that the truth about Jehovah and Jesus originated with the Society? 

MY REPLY:

The "truth" originates with God (Prov.2:6; James1:5; 2Cor.4:6) and His Word (John17:17; 2Tim.3:16), Jesus Christ (John14:6), those who listen to Jesus (John18:37), ...those who worship with spirit and truth (John4:24,14), and in the last two references, I speak especially of anointed ones who have been given the truth, through that very anointing (1John2:21,20,27; 1Pet.2:9) and live by it (1John3:17,18,19). It seems arrogant to me, to rob God, His Word, Jesus Christ, and the Temple priests of God's choosing, of any credit for being sources of truth, independent of this modern-day Organization. I know that they are not God's mediator (1Tim.2:5; Matt.23:8,10; 1Cor.12:21,22; John15:5).

I have taken a segment from the following post at the site:
4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/03/wolves-in-sheeps-clothing.html

That segment begins with
a question I was asked along the same lines as yours.....

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

MY PAST REPLY:
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 anointed 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 profess to 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, enslaved, 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 Organization of spiritual Gentiles (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, supported, famous, and exalted anointed men who are backed by an army of "Gentile" "elders" under subjection (for the moment); but through the "LEAST" of Christ's brothers, who are being slandered and "killed" (Rev.12:10,11; 11:7,9,10; 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).

"Wormwood" pollutes "one third" of it's teachings (Rev.8:10,11). This infers that two thirds, or most, of it's teachings seem pure, right? (2Cor.11:14,15)
Despite this, we must acknowledge the one-third!
"Have you ever known a spring to give sweet and bitter water simultaneously? Have you ever seen a fig-tree with a crop of olives, or seen figs growing on a vine? It is just as impossible for a spring to give fresh and salt water at the same time." James3:11,12
Poisoned doctrines cause death, even if they seem to be camouflaged with truth (Matt.4:5,6; 24:24; 2Thess.2:10).
All religions have some truth. This does not make them the path of life (Eph.4:5; John14:6; Matt.7:15,16,17,18,20,21,22,23,24).

#2. What about those just coming to a knowledge of basic spiritual truth through house to house bible study?

When Jesus Christ revealed the first century destruction of Jerusalem; he inferred that it was a pattern to his last day presence and arrival (Matt.24:3,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,37).
That description helps to answer your question, about these spiritual "babes" who are still taking in "milk" (1Pet.2:1,2,3; Heb.5:11,12,13,14; 1Cor.3:1,2).
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2014/03/pregnant-woman-and-nursing-mothers.html)
The events to occur to these in the end-time, are depicted here:
(see Matt.24:19; Luke23:29; 21:23; 19:44)

The "door to door" ministry is a counterfeit one, designed to ensnare the anointed into subjection to Satan, through the powerful signs and portents of a false Mount Zion.

(see 4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/02/jehovahs-genuine-mountain.html )
and
(pearl-anillustration.blogspot.com)

Although the Organization interprets Acts20:20 as meaning a public door-to-door witnessing to strangers, the context of Acts20:20 (as well as Rom.16:3,5; 1Cor.1:11; 16:19; Col.4:15; Phm.1:2), proves otherwise. Those whom Paul is speaking to (about teaching them "house to house"), are the same ones he is speaking to in Acts20:18,19,20,28,34,36,37,38 and are those whom Paul knew well.
The "houses" where Paul went to teach, were Christian meeting places...Congregations...not the doorsteps of the public. They did not have church buildings or "Kingdom Halls" in the first Century. These Congregational groups met in the private homes of their fellow local members.
For those who were not yet associated with one of these groups, they could choose to listen when Paul and others taught "publicly" in market places, synagogues, etc.
OR
others would be directed to the "Living Stones" of the Holy Priesthood/God's Temple (Eph2:20,21,22; 1Pet.2:5,9) directly by Holy Spirit (Acts10:47,48) or the anointed would be sent by spirit to those of complete heart (2Chron.16:9; Acts8:26,29; Acts9:6,10,11).

As stated before:
    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, enslaved to men, 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).

Unfortunately, Satan did not care that innocent babies were killed in his rage (reflected in Herod) against the promised "seed" Jesus (Gal.3:16). Neither does he care today, that interested Bible students are perishing from the poisonous waters he has unleashed to target the "seed" today (Gal.3:29,26; Rev.12:4,15,16,17).
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/02/earth-swallows-satans-river.html

There is nothing superior about the indoctrination offered to the Bible students of "Jehovah's Witnesses".
They are learning lies just as members of Christendom are learning lies.
The only path to life, is Truth.
Whether you are "babes" to doctrines of men, or babes to the real truth,
the Great Tribulation will be a severe spiritual test, which most will not survive (Matt.24:22,24,13)...
Not because the test is unfair, but because most of those of the learned and the unlearned,
prefer the idolatrous lies (2Thess.2:9,10; Matt.7:13).
For lovers of truth, all things are possible, including salvation.
Matt.19:25,26

Thank you for writing me. I hope these thoughts have been helpful.
If you have any further need, please let me know.
Love in Christ,

Anointed Flock...the Truth

RESPONSE TO A LETTER:

I would be happy to discuss the ideas in your "great crowd" article, most notably the conclusions about "every tribe and tongue and people and nation”.
You may want to re-consider Rev.5:9,10;
as well as the thought that after the first century,
the rest of the anointed are derived from this larger flock of physical Gentiles....
the larger flock than the "little flock" of anointed physical descendants of Abraham (physical Jews).
Since the first century, the anointed have been chosen from among physical Gentiles ("every tribe and tongue and people and nation")
to become spiritual Jews, along with the original physical Jews (Matt.15:24; 10:6; Rom.1:16; 2:9,10,11) who also became spiritual Jews,
so that both physical Jew and physical Gentile,
all become "one flock" of anointed spiritual "Jews". (Rom.2:28,29; John10:16,27; Isa.56:8; Eze.34:23; Rev.7:17)

The last of the anointed priests and kings (the great crowd "capstone" Zech.4:7,9; Rev.7:9,17),
MUST be all physical Gentiles (Rev.5:9,10). 
There is no longer any record of physical Jews,
nor any preferential consideration toward them, since the time of their rejection of God's Son and subsequent hardening of their hearts in unrepentance (Heb.8:13; Rom.11:25); and since the opening of the kingdom hope toward Gentiles (Acts13:46; 10:15; Eph.2:14,15,16; Acts10:34,35,44,45; Gal.3:28). 

In the first century...Jews who repented were accepted (Acts2:36,37,38; Rom.9:27). After this opportunity, it was made equally opened to physical Gentiles to be in God's New Covenant, which replaced the Old Covenant toward physical Jews.
These anointed (since the first century) are from all "tribes and nations". Whether Jew or Gentile --it matters not, since the end of the Law Covenant abolished any favoritism. "Jew" is just one of the many nations included in the New Covenant of Christ's anointed sheep.

Compare the total flock of anointed to an apple pie.
Some apples are of one sort, some of another sort.



Physical Jews are one sort. Yet Gentiles are of many sorts.
Yet they are all mixed together to become one pie. (Gal3:28,29; John10:16; Eph.3:6)


This fits the "one flock" as consisting of both physical Jew and a variety of physical Gentiles.
They join to become one anointed flock/ one "pie".

Now after most of that "pie" has come and gone (eaten),
there is a final slice that is left. 



No one can say how large or small it is (Rev.7:9)
We can be certain though, that just like the pie from which it came,
it consists of a variety of apples (Rev.7:9) (Perhaps including physical Jews, without special distinction)
This is the remnant... the great crowd/last capstone of the anointed "Temple" (1Pet.2:5; Eph.2:20,21), 
which comes through the time of the end and it's final great Satanic test, the "Great Tribulation". (Rev.7:14; Zech.4:7,9,11,14; Rev.11:3,4).

The "one pie"/flock, is not designated as being of one sort of apple or another sort.
That last slice is also considered "of every tribe tongue people and nation"...including any physical Jews.
Why?
There is no longer any distinction, nor favoritism among the anointed (Acts10:34; Gal.3:28,29).
For, God's chosen are from all nations (including physical Jews), selected to become the new "Israel of God".
 (Gal.6:15,16; Rev.3:12; 21:2; 2Pet.3:13).

What is "Jew" and "Gentile"?

Guardian Angels?


A QUESTION:
Hello Sister Pearl,
 I have heard; that we each have a personal guardian angel. Is this true?
Agape,
Jerry

MY REPLY:


Hello Jerry,
At 2Tim.3:5 we read, "(Men) having a form of godly devotion, but proving false, and from these turn away".
How do we know what "form" of faith is false? What is the standard of what it true?
At John17:17 we read, "Sanctify (cleanse, correct) them by means of the truth. Your Word is Truth.".
(2Tim.3:16)

  If you consider yourself a follower of Christ's teachings, then I assume that you are guided by scripture. You have not told me which scripture has lead you to consider the possibility that we each have our own individual guardian angel. If you "have heard" this from outside the realm of scripture, why are you considering it? The number of false spiritual rumors are limitless.

This subject could, through the related scriptures which are in God's Word, branch out into many subjects and truths. I could share scriptures about the one guardian angel assigned to all of ancient Israel as they wandered through the wilderness (Ex.23:20)....Or, discuss how many such ancient occurrences are a prophetic pattern which point to the present and future.
I will instead, keep it simple as I believe the nature of your question to be.

The Bible term for "angel" simply means "messenger". The term is not limited to spirits, but also applies to human messengers. Messengers of divine Truth, can "guard" us from deception and ignorance, and as a result, guard from death (Hosea4:6; Prov.10:21; Dan.12:3; 1John2:20,21; Heb.1:14; 2:5).
God does not protect everyone (Prov.22:3; Matt.7:13,14; Rev.20:15,14). He can see the difference between good and bad people (Prov.15:3; 16:17) and He is only moved to act in behalf of those whose heart completely loves God, and His truth (2Chron.16:9).

So in my effort to answer you directly....
No, we do not each have a spirit person assigned to us, to guard us.
I don't know what you imagine we are being guarded from, but a brief glance around us reveals immense suffering and injustice, making obvious that our lives are not charmed in the way you reference.

Yet as we saw at 2Chron.16:9; God will act in behalf of those who truly seek His will and approval (2Sam.22:26; 1Pet.5:6; James4:10; 1John2:17). In this case, a human angel messenger, may be sent to them (Acts9:17; 8:26,29,35,39; 2Cor.5:20; 1Tim.4:16), to illuminate the path of escape from condemnation and death (Matt.7:14,21,13,24; John14:6), which awaits all those alienated from God and the Truth (2Thess.2:9,10; Col.1:21; Eph.2:3; 2Thess.1:8; Rom.2:8).
To be "guarded" from these consequences, we must take action ourselves (1John2:17; Gal.6:7; Prov.16:17).


I hope my reply has given you some thoughts for satisfying consideration.
If any of it causes further questions, please follow up and I will do my best to answer you from the Bible.

Heavenly Powers | "Fire" | The Destroyer


A LETTER I RECEIVED:
You can put up all our conversations and letters up on your website if you think they will help others, i really don't mind.
 I also appreciate what you said about not focusing on your troubles and problems you come across, but you are also human and i pray to God on a daily basis to grant you the wisdom and courage to face all Satan throws your way successfully.
 I have been thinking a lot lately about the Jesus' parables - it is true that they all contribute to the bigger picture. We must just pray to God to help us piece together the right pieces.
 At times i tend to pop into Robert's website and can't help but notice that the title "king of the north" is used quite often on that site, can you please give me a brief overview of the subject.
 I feel blessed so much - being blessed with the truth is way better than being "blessed" with Satan's riches and power.
 Love
Modise

MY REPLY:

I am so happy to hear from you Modise. To hear that you are praying for my success in fully accomplishing my ministry, is a treasured gift of great value to me. It is true that the loss of my daughters is an inestimable source of pain, but your letters reach that same place in my heart, as if you are my son, and I am comforted.

Regarding the King of the North,
spirit has not yet given me a complete understanding of the book of Daniel (1Cor.13:9,10).
When I read it, I make associations to other scriptures, and certainly an overall picture (with some details) is emerging each and every time I am taken there. I read it when I am directed there to pull in one of Daniel's verses when explaining Revelation or a "Greek" scripture. As I go there, my perception and understanding grows in these associations/cross references.
I seems clear to me, that spirit has my greatest focus on opening Revelation thoroughly. I sense that Daniel is also on that list of work, but is more future after I complete present work. Much of what I do understand about Daniel, is because of Revelation. All the truth is one.
What I am trying to say is, I do not want to go ahead of my instructor. When I offer food, it must be as I am directed.
You have a wonderful and healthy spiritual appetite, and I know that your questions have often helped to guide me along in my divine assignment.
I know what my immediate load is, and this I hope to complete soon. I will certainly remember this specific question in prayer, and perhaps I will receive that portion when I have accomplished present things.
What I can say now, is that these "kings" are rulers of this darkness, just as Eph.6:12 tells us:
"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers (kings), against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."

These significant battles of prophecy, involve the kingdom heirs. The drama of Satan's political world is spiritually irrelevant (Isa.40:15; 1John2:17).
This is not to say that these evil spiritual forces of Eph.6:12 are not also human (even though we see that this "struggle"/"wrestling" is "not against flesh and blood").
The war/wrestling the "seed" are engaged in, is not against blood and flesh (Gen.3:15; 2Cor.10:3,4; Rom.8:4; 2Tim.2:3,4).  In conventional physical warfare.... soldiers seek to destroy "blood and flesh" with weapons that do this. The soldiers of Christ seek to destroy, and are against, something not of flesh... (see 2Cor.10:5; Isa.2:11; 5:16; 13:11; 23:9; 37:23; Micah2:3). It is a war against Satan's deceptions, expressed in the doctrines of proud false prophets (Rev.16:13,14,15; Job26:6; Prov.15:11).
This battle is spiritual. It is fought...not physically upon the literal earth, but spiritually, in the "heavens" (Rev.19:11,14,8; 12:7,11).
Only certain humans can be considered part of the scriptural "heavens" at war (Gen.3:15; Rev.12:17,7).
When the anointed "seed" are sealed as either slaves of darkness, Satan and BTG;
or,
 slaves of light, Yehawah and New Jerusalem;
they are a part of the "heavens" at war...
They become part of the old heavens which are passing away and falling
(2Pet.3:7; Mark13:25; Luke16:1,2; Matt.24:50,51; Rev.6:13; Matt.25:29,30)



or a part of the new heavens, which are being raised up and established forever
(Eph.1:3; 2:6; 2Pet.3:13; Matt.25:34; 24:47; Dan.12:3; Rev.21:1; Psalm20:8).


I can assure you with confidence, that the king of the North and South, are not politicians of Satan's governmental system. While it is true that Satan is fabricating a counterfeit fulfillment of these prophecies within the world that he controls; those events are not the divine judicial basis for the End, nor the basis for the New Beginning (Rev.21:5,4). (pearl-anillustration.blogspot.com)

We draw close to the finale. Satan marches forward in his role as the "Destroyer" (Isa.33:1; Rev.9:11; Job 26:6; 1Cor.10:10; Ex.12:23; Prov.17:11; Ps.17:3-4).
(pearl-Revelation9.blogspot.com)
He will bring his own world to an end...taking down as many as he can with him.
Satan is the Destroyer....not Christ or the Father (John10:10; John5:40; Ps.36:9).
His world will end by means of the Devil himself.
When God tells us that He will judge the world by means of "fire" (2Pet.3:7,10,12; Isa.66:15; Mal.4:1; Matt.13:30) we must understand the meaning of "fire" according to scripture. This fire is not literal and physical [Jer.23:29; (Rev.2:27; 12:5; Ps.2:9) Heb.12:29; Jer.5:14; Hosea6:5; Rev.11:3,5; Matt.3:11].
Those who are judged on the basis of their response to revealed truth (for life or for death- John12:48; Luke12:49; 1Cor.3:13; 1Pet.1:7; 2Thess.1:7; Matt.25:31,32; Luke12:49; Luke12:51; Matt.10:34; Rev.1:16; 19:15,21) will be segregated by means of their response to this fire (which standard can either cleanse, or condemn, depending upon humility, defining the "wheat" and "weeds" in the time of the final harvest).

The unresponsive are either surrendered to Satan's impending destruction (1Cor.5:5; 1Tim.1:20; Rev.2:21),
or the humble responsive ones who accept the discipline and repent, are shielded by the blood of Christ for life. (Mal.3:3; Isa.1:25; Jer.9:7; Dan.11:35; 12:10; Zech.13:9; 4:10; Rev.5:6) ( Luke17:35,37; Rev.12:6,14; 11:3; Isa.30:18)
Only those who are ransomed, according to Yehawah's righteous standard of justice, spirit, and truth, will survive Satan's final woes, tribulation, and wrath (1John5:18,19; John17:15; Gal.1:4)....
not physically surviving necessarily, but more importantly, continuing to remain standing spiritually (2Thess.1:10; 1Tim.4:16; 2Cor.5:20; Rev.6:17; Luke21:36; Rev.7:9; Matt.24:13; Eph.6:13; Rom.14:8).
For these, forever awaits (1Cor.2:9; Ps.37:29).

I am confident that if it is God's will for the identities in Daniel to be fully understood soon (I believe it is), they will soon be revealed accurately....
not according to Satan's counterfeit red herring.....
if not by me, then through one of the other chosen vessels of Truth.
I will continue to strive to write all I am being given, whatever and whenever, that may prove to be.

Love,
Pearl

Part Two- The "Sheep"


This is a continuation of yesterday's Introductory post 

(Please read that first...

http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/04/sheep-and-goats-introduction.html )
which concluded with...

The faithful anointed are also referred to as "firstborn" of God's children, because they come to life first (Rev.20:6). They are not only firstborn of humanity to God, but also to Christ (Jer.2:3; James1:18; Rom.8:23; Rev.14:4). They are therefore, Christ's sons, previous to their adoption by the Father in Heaven (Rom.8:23). The father does not adopt those stained by sin, but after these receive forgiveness, cleansing, and life by Christ (John14:6; 6:51), they can then be adopted by God. Christ is their natural spiritual father (Isa.9:6; Ps.45:16).
Why have we examined these things?

Remember...sons bear the traits of their fathers. In this way, we can identify both groups of children, and the fathers who generated them.
Now let us apply this knowledge, to the "sheep" and the "goats".


Matt.13:30,38,41; 25:32
THE SHEEP:

If the sheep are indeed sons of the kingdom, their natural spiritual father, is Christ.

Jesus Christ is called, "the Lamb of God" (John1:29; Rev.14:1; 5:6). His sons therefore, can also be depicted as lambs/sheep. These sons of the Lamb of God are also to be slaughtered lambs, as that one was (Psalm44:22; Rom.8:36; 6:5; Rev.6:9). Their blood is given up to establish the kingdom covenant to come, just as previous sacrificial blood established (Ex.24:8; Matt.26:28; Mark14:24). That blood is sacrificed on Jehovah's own altar, and is offered of the donor's free will (Rev.6:9; John10:17,18; Rev.12:11). Under that new Kingdom Covenant, life will come to the secondary children of God, through that "bride". (Rom.8:18,19,21; Rev.21:2; 22:2,17)
Jesus once said regarding his own sacrifice, "Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends." John15:13. The faithful anointed imitate...both the life and death of their Lord (1Pet.2:21; 1John2:6; John10:11; 1John3:16; Rom.6:5; Rev.6:9; Rom.8:17,36; Zech.11:4) (Rom.5:11; 11:15; 2Cor.5:18) for the sake of their beloved "friends" of the groaning physical creation (Rom.8:20,22; 1Cor.13:3; 1John4:8; Eph.5:1,2; Matt.5:45; Luke6:35; Phil.2:15).

Rev.5:6; John1:29
Rev.6:9; 20:4


At Matt.25:35,36 , Jesus describes the "sheep". The clear trait which this parable highlights, is that they are loving (John13:34; 1John2:8,9,10,11). They lovingly support even the "least", weakest, impoverished, and despised of Christ's brothers (Luke10:30,34,36,37,27; Matt.25:35,36,34,40; 24:45). They will not persecute, hinder, beat, or kill their brothers, in imitation of the scribes and Pharisees who killed their Lord (1John3:12; John13:35; Matt.24:49; John8:40; 16:2; Rom.14:4; 8:33; Matt.10:21; 1John3:15; Isa.66:5; John11:53; Matt.12:14; John19:15; Rev.13:15; 2Thess.2:6,7,8) By this faithfulness under test... and "death" for truth, the faithful seed of Christ will be recognized; as imitators of the Lamb of God (John13:34; 15:12,17; Rom.12:10; 13:8,10).
                                         ************

There are counterfeit "sheep" (Matt.7:15; Rev.13:11,14; 19:20; 2Pet.2:1; Matt.10:33)
In a spiritual sense...these false prophets who are unfaithful chosen ones, are "goats"...
as are those who receive them and their false teachings, and obey and imitate their murderous hatred toward the "least" of Christ's brothers.
(1John3:15; 4:20; Eze.14:10; 2Thess.2:9,10,11; Rev.13:14,8; 20:15; 1Chron.16:22; Rev.11:3,7,8,9,10; Matt.24:9; 25:44,45,46)

Counterfeit sheep are false witnesses. They are false prophets. They control the minds (forehead- 1Tim.4:2) and power (right hand- Isa.44:20; Ps.144:8; Rom.1:25) of their followers, and mark them as slaves of the Wild Beast's commerce of lies (Rev.13:16,17,18; 16:13,15)

"Sheep" and "Goats" AN INTRODUCTION

From the beginning, God calls our attention to two groups (Gen.3:15; Mal.3:18).
The first Biblical descriptions of these two groups (Gen.3:15; 1John3:12), reveals to us that each group is generated from and belongs to, a spiritual "father" and "mother".
We know them as those who are either faithful spirit-begotten 
(generated of God's spirit -Rom.8:14; Gal.4:6; 3:26; John3:6; Rom.8:9), 
or, 
sons of "destruction" (which is the name of the king of the abyss -Rev.9:11; John10:10; Isa.33:1; Heb.2:14).
In both cases, the mother of the seed, are covenants (Gal.4:26,24; Rev.17:5; Isa28:15). The "seed" of each, bear the traits of their mother and father (Gal.4:24,26,23; 1Pet.3:6) (John8:44) (Eph.5:1; 4:24; Col.3:10; Matt.5:48; Phil.2:15).
("women" = covenants) (see pearl-thewoman.blogspot.com)

The context of Gen.3:15 lets us know that the wicked seed are of the original Serpent (Gen.3:14; Matt.13:38; John8:44). His seed are doomed to destruction (Jude1:12,13; Phil.3:19; Matt.25:41; James1:15; Rom.6:16). This can include those who were originally chosen ones also, unless they repent and are then set free from the deadly prison of the "abyss" (Col.1:13; Isa.60:2; 2Pet.1:19; Isa.38:17; Micah7:19; 2Pet.2:9). This is in harmony with Satan being Leviathan, who is over the sea/abyss/deep, of death-dealing lies that hold us captives to death. (Col.2:8; Rev.13:10,7; Heb.2:14; Rev.9:11)
(http://pearl-leviathan.blogspot.com/)

Although each of these two groups of seed have many names/designations; we need to keep in mind that all these designations still point to these two anointed groups.
Here are some of those contrasting comparisons between Satan's seed and seed of the "woman"/Covenant with God:

*Sons of light/day -vs- sons of darkness/night (1Thess.5:5,6)
*Wheat -vs- weeds (Matt.13:38)
*"faithful, wise, alert, sober, good, and discreet" -vs- "wicked, weak, prideful, lazy, asleep, drunk, and foolish"
  (Matt.25:2,21,26; 24:45,48; Luke16:2,3)
*illuminating stars of the heavens -vs- wandering stars with no set course, cast down to earth
  (Phil.2:15; Dan.12:3; Jude1:13; Mark13:25; Rev.6:13; 12:4; Phil.3:19; James3:15; Col.3:2)
*truth lovers -vs- lovers of the lie
  (Prov.4:6; 2Thess.2:10; Isa.28:15; John8:40,44)
*Focus on the heavens -vs- lovers of the world and things of the "earth"
  (Col.3:1,2; Phil.3:19; Rom.8:5; 1John2:15)
*blameless, innocent, without spot from the world -vs- crooked and twisted
  (Phil.2:15; Eph.5:27; 2Pet.3:14; Acts2:40; Matt.17:16,17,18)
*white robed -vs- stained by sin
  (Rev.19:8; 6:11; Jude1:23; Amos4:11; Zech.3:2,3,4; Isa.52:1)
*speak by spirit -vs- speak of their own initiative
  (Matt.10:20,27; Luke12:3; John7:16,18; 1Pet.4:11; 2Cor.2:17)
*lovingly sacrifice their lives for truth -vs- murder for personal gain
  (John15:13; Rev.6:9; 12:11; 20:4; 17:6; 18:24,3,7,16,17,19)
*virgins -vs- harlots
  (Rev.14:4; Eph.5:27; 2Cor.11:2; Hosea9:1; 4:12; 5:4; 1Thess.4:3; Rev.2:21; 14:8; 17:2,4)

*sheep -vs- goats  (as well as more of the Bible's symbolic comparisons)

We have already discussed in past posts, how these (chosen seed in covenant with God) mature into two groups, by manifesting the traits of their chosen "fathers" (John8:44; Deut.32:5; Matt.5:48; Eph.5:1; Gal.5:16; 1Cor.11:1). By an examination of those traits, both the seed and the fathers of seed, can be identified and recognized.
Can this also be used to identify and recognize the "sheep" and "goats" of God's flock?
(Eze.34:17,31; Isa.13:21; Zech.10:3 ("leaders" lit. "punish the goats"); Matt.25:32)
Yes.
We already, right at the start of the Bible, have been told that the wicked are seed of Satan...
and the faithful are seed of the "woman" (Gen.3:15)
(2Thess.2:3; Matt.13:38; Rev.9:11; Ps.137:8; John8:44) (Rev.12:1,5; Gal.4:26,24; 3:29; Rom.8:17; 1Pet.1:23).
The faithful anointed are also referred to as "firstborn" of God's children, because they come to life first (Rev.20:6). They are not only firstborn of humanity to God, but also to Christ (Jer.2:3; James1:18; Rom.8:23; Rev.14:4). They are therefore, Christ's sons, previous to their adoption by the Father in Heaven (Rom.8:23). The father does not adopt those stained by sin, but after these receive forgiveness, cleansing, and life by Christ (John14:6; 6:51), they can then be adopted by God. Christ is their natural spiritual father (Isa.9:6; Ps.45:16).
Why have we examined these things?

Remember...sons bear the traits of their fathers. In this way, we can identify both groups of children, and the fathers who generated them.
Now let us apply this knowledge, to the "sheep" and the "goats".

Satan Misleads the Entire Inhabited Earth

A comment which was left:

I have been a baptized jw for less then a year. I came out of the garbage can of Christendom. All I can say is that the truth is being taught through the faithful and discreet slave class. If they feel that a new direction needs to be taken then so be it. They speak for Jehovah, they have been given that great responsibility over the spiritual lives of so many in this so great a work that we do. What most people don’t get is that Jehovah gives spiritual light a little at a time not all at once. So The light that the G/B has given over the years has been in fact truth as received from Jehovah God.It is up to every brother and sister to receive that spiritual light and use it in there lives and families. As for me, I choose to believe G/B and obey Jehovah. As Jehovah God say’s in Deut.30:19-20 I have put life and death before you the blessing and the malediction, you must choose life. It’s up to you whether you want to have life through Jehovah’s Kingdom, or the malediction from the god of this world and his false religions.

My reply:


I was a “Jehovah’s Witness” from 1975 until 2012. In the last years of being in the Congregation, I was a pioneer, and I partook due to Holy Spirit choosing me to do so. Anyone genuinely anointed, is given Holy Spirit, and given an understanding of Truth (1John2:20,27). They then have before them, a choice. One…to be a faithful slave of Christ, or Two…an unfaithful one. Faithfulness requires endurance and even “death”. I hope you will look up and meditate on what the Bible really says about this fact (Mark8:35; Rom.6:5; Heb.13:13; Rev.11:7,8,9,10; 6:9,10,11; Matt.24:9; John16:2). Now let us return to the choice before those genuinely anointed……
As you can see if you read those scriptures, faithfulness requires a “death” for the sake of Truth/the gospel/good news. This “death” for Truth is a very difficult thing to accept and fulfill. This “death” is described within scripture, so that we do not misunderstand what it means.
See if you can conclude exactly what this "death" is, by means of scripture… (Rev.13:7,15; 6:9; 20:4; Isa.66:5; Matt.10:22,34,35,36). In order to prove faithful, anointed must follow the same course of Christ, including his death (1Pet.2:21; Rom.6:5).
What was that death Jesus suffered…do you remember? He was killed at the demand of the Religious leaders of those in Covenant with Jehovah God. They used the Gentiles (Romans) to carry out his execution (Matt.27:1,2; John19:11,14,15). They wanted Jesus dead for teaching the Truth and because of the divisions this caused among "their" people (Luke12:51). These leaders did not want to lose their power which their false doctrines supported. (John8:40; 11:48)
You may wonder, how in the world can anointed follow this same course of Christ today,
thereby fulfilling this requirement of dying for controversial truth? (Luke22:28,29; Rom.6:5; Mark8:35; Rev.6:9,11)
These same roles do exist today, but be careful that you do not cast the wrong players! “Christendom” is not in the New Covenant into which the anointed are taken. The GB is.
Jesus and his true followers, disagreed with the leadership of the first century and were killed for it. They were considered “apostate”. Remember that they declared where their loyalty was (Acts5:29; 2:23; John8:28).
Please also remember from the foregoing scriptures, that same experiences are the things required of anointed, if they hope to be among the sealed and faithful. This is why Jesus said that salvation depends upon how we treat….NOT the “Greatest”, but the “least” of Christ’s brothers (Matt.25:45,46; 23:12).

We are told by Jesus Christ, that in the last days, there will be "a disgusting thing standing in the holy place" (Matt.24:15; Rev.11:1,2; 2Thess.2:4; Rev.13:11,12,8). In the first century pattern, this was fulfilled by the Romans (Gentiles) entering the Temple when they destroyed it. We see from the latest scriptures above, this will occur again, which provides the anointed their opportunity to imitate Christ, and be “killed” for Truth.

The “Temple” are the faithful anointed (1Cor.3:16; Eph.2:20,21,22; 1Pet.2:5,9,10) When their priestly authority is trespassed upon and “trampled”; it is that “disgusting thing standing in a holy place”.
Yet we remember from the first century pattern, those Gentiles were initially used by those unfaithful who were in covenant with God (the Jewish religious leaders). It is the same today. Those considered spiritual Jews, are anointed ones (Rom.2:28,29; Gal.3:28,29). Everyone else, is a spiritual Gentile. This means that although the GB professes to be genuinely anointed, the “elders” are generally not, and are in fact, spiritual Gentiles.

Now I hope you can accept the reality of current events......
When genuine anointed within the Organization identify false doctrines taught by the wicked steward…what happens?
 First, we have established that the faithful anointed must follow the example of Christ and the apostles (Acts5:29; 1Cor.6:19,20; 7:23; Gal.1:10,15,16,17; Col.3:24). They must be loyal to Truth, Jehovah, and Christ….NOT to men. The faithful derive that truth from the holy spirit, which anointed them.

In April, 2012; I was disfellowshipped. Not for any sort of immorality, but purely for proving from scripture, lethal doctrines which you yourself are being taught and will suffer the resulting “malediction” as a result…along with the millions in your company (Matt.7:13,14; Joel3:14).
Those judged at Armageddon (in the valley of the judicial decision -Rev.20:12; 2:23; 11:18; 20:13,15; 13:8; Dan.7:10) do not belong to Satan’s world (1John5:19). THAT WORLD and it’s ruler IS ALREADY JUDGED! Prophecy reveals that God is judging his own people! (Jer.25:28,29,30; Rev.14:19)

The present “Steward” over God’s household is not the faithful and discreet slave at all!….but is the wicked steward who beats his fellow anointed, throws them out (not personally, but through the Gentiles),
and replaces the priests of the Temple, with that organization of Gentile “Elders” (Matt.24:48,49; Eze.44:6,7,8,9; 2Chron.13:9; 23:6; Num.3:10).
Do you recognize the fulfillment of the prophecies of Matt.24:15, Luke21:24, 2Thess.2:4, and Rev.11:2?
This organization of Gentiles (who are “killing” faithful anointed John16:2) is a counterfeit Mt. Zion!
Did you ever hear the phrase, “Jehovah’s mountain-like organization”??? (see Zech.4:7,8,9; Rev.8:8)?
It is not the “Zion” nor “Jerusalem” of Isa.2:2,3 ; but a disgusting counterfeit “standing where it does not belong” Mark13:14.
http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/02/jehovahs-genuine-mountain.html

You are not receiving “the proper food at the proper time”. Remember….in Satan’s war against “the REMAINING ONES of the woman’s seed” (Rev.12:17), he “disgorges a river” of lies (John8:44) FROM HIS MOUTH.
http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/02/earth-swallows-satans-river.html
Remember….all but the “woman” and her “seed” SWALLOW those lies (Rev.12:15,16,9) resulting in “all the earth” being “mislead”.
Only those who accept the final “two witnesses” Rev.11:3,4 (who are “killed” Rev.11:7; 6:9) will live through this Great Tribulation (Matt.10:20,40,41,42; 25:37,40) which comes in upon all God’s covenanted people (Matt.24:24,25; Luke21:35; Rev.12:9; 13:8,12,14; Luke18:26,27; Matt.24:22).

If you continue to swallow everything the GB dispenses, you will do well….IF ...THEY ARE WHO THEY CLAIM THEMSELVES TO BE (Luke17:10) ...the faithful whom only Christ can identify at his return (Matt.25:23) which he has not yet done (1Cor.11:26).
But remember….there were two choices before a steward, not one! (Matt.24:45,46,47) (Matt.24:48,49,50,51).
There are also two choices before all the anointed “virgins” of Matt.25:1 (Rev.14:4,5,1).
They can derive the light in their lamps from the Holy Spirit they were anointed with, OR, they could go “buy it from those who sell” (Matt.25:8,9; Rev.13:17; 3:18). Who will they choose to "pay" their worship to, in order to buy "light"?....Christ, ...or the wild beast Organization?

I tell you that the Organization (of spiritual Gentiles) IS the “wild beast” of Rev.13:1. Whoever we obey, we are a slave to (Rom.6:16; 2Pet.2:19). When we allow an organization to dictate every detail of our worship to God, rather than loyally putting the Bible itself as supreme; our worship is no longer God's, but belongs to that organization. If you continue to surrender your thinking, actions, praise, and worship to it, you are marked on your "forehead" as a slave to IT (Rev.13:16); not to God (Deut.6:6,8; Ex.13:9). Those who subject their power, works, praise, and actions to this visible Organizational Beast, are marked as slaves on their right hand (Isa.44:20; Ps.144:8; Rom.1:25; 2Thess.2:11; 2Tim.3:13). If it's Laws guide our thinking, faith, and speech... our "forehead" is also branded by that master.
The governing body teaches that the organization is "God's visible organization" and "God's mountain-like organization". God's true "mountain", is "Zion" belonging to heaven (Rev.14:1; Isa.2:3), and is not "like" anything. It is genuine, not a counterfeit. Do not accept this demonic imitation! (2Thess.2:9,10)
(see http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/02/jehovahs-genuine-mountain.html)

As for the faithful anointed, they must be marked as slaves of God (Rev.14:1) on their "forehead".
They do not submit to the adulterous Harlot (GB) who is over the "Gentile" beast organization (1Cor.6:15); but the "ten kings" do (Rev.17:2,18; 2:20,21) in rebellion against their true ruler (Rev.1:5).
The faithful refuse to commit spiritual fornication with "her", because “she” is not the “faithful and discreet slave” at all (Hosea5:3; Rev.8:10,11). "Her" thinking is enslaved to (and marked by) "the mother of the Harlots" (Rev17:5). "Babylon the Great" is not the harlot who rides the beast, but is the mother of the harlot who rides the Beast. (Ps.137:8; Rev.18:6; Jer.51:49; Rev.18:25; 11:8). If you want to know what the symbol of "mother" means (Gal.4:26), I suggest you read
pearl-thewoman.blogspot.com . Being marked on your forehead, is not your own name, but the name of your owner (Rev.14:1,9; 7:3; 22:4). This is also true of Rev.17:5.
All the symbolic prostitutes of scripture, are only those who left their covenant with God. This can not be Christendom, unless you believe that Christendom are the anointed in holy marriage covenant with Jehovah God and Christ.
Remember... Rev.18:4 tells us, “Get out of her MY PEOPLE”. Are those still inside “Christendom”, God’s people? (1Pet.2:10,9,5)
The “faithful and discreet” slaves of the True God do indeed exist today, but you are looking in the wrong place for them. Are you influenced and impressed by the visible? (James4:4; 1John2:15,16) (Matt.8:20; 4:8,9,10; Matt.6:19,20; Heb.10:34; 13:5; 2Cor.11:27; 6:5; 1Cor.4:11,12,13,14). Such impressive power and holdings is not the path of Christ (Rom.8:17; Heb.12:2; Phil.3:10; 1Pet.2:21; 4:13).
There is so much "proper food" that you are lacking.
I hope you will make up for lost time.
 (4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com)

The scriptures tell us to scrutinize who we feed from (1John4:1; Matt.7:15; 24:24,25; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13,14). Such scrutiny is not permitted by the Organizational Beast (Rev.13:15,17,4) just as it was not permitted in the first century (John12:42; 7:13; 9:22).
Jesus has told us that if we exercise our power of scrutiny (Acts17:11; 2Cor.13:3; Matt.7:24; Heb.5:14) we will be able to discern the true from the false (Matt.7:20; John7:17). Do not be influenced or impressed by worldly power, dominion, or facilities (Matt.4:9,10; 2Thess.2:9,10; 2Cor.11:15; Rev.13:13,14; 1Cor.4:9,10,11,12,13) but measure the "temple" according to Christ's standards, found within the scriptures (Rev.21:15,17,22,23,24,27; Zech.2:2; 4:8,6; Isa.28:17; Rev.14:4,5).

Endurance

A letter I received this morning:


Good morning Sister D

Please share this with Obe

I read the post he put up yesterday about "Divisions" - as i read it i could feel his pain. That is truly not an easy thing for both of you as parents - please take comfort in Jesus' words - the new world our Father promises is just almost here.
(http://obadiah-blogs.blogspot.com/)

As an anointed, Satan will not make this journey an easy one for you, he will use all tactics to force you off the road to life and your inheritance.

Do keep strong.

Love you lots
Modise
--------------------------------------------------
My reply:


Thank you Modise,
When I keep my focus on the will of God, my heart and mind are able to be more steadfast and undeterred by the blows and missiles of Satan. As God has promised, my forehead has been hardened (Eze.3:8,9; Isa.50:7; James1:3) for the sake of his will and the meaning of his name (Isa.42:1; 54:4; 45:17; Micah1:2). With these things in mind, we are enabled to demonstrate our Faith.
I don't know if all the pain throughout my life has caused my heart to grow numb (Ps.143:4; 38:8; Job 3:24; Lam.2:11); or if it is being shielded by God's spirit so that I do not collapse and fail to endure (1Cor.10:13; Ps.109:26; 119:86; Dan.12:1; Rom.14:4; Jude1:24; 1Pet.5:10).

I realized that I did not directly answer a part of your last question.
Here is more for you. I copied it from an addition I made to the post at the site:
"As far as whether the majority of anointed will fail (when comparing 10 and 2), we know that the last of the faithful anointed can not be numbered by men (Rev.7:9). This scripture certainly indicates that the faithful are not reflected by the annual tally of partakers inside the organization.
 Although we accept this inability to read hearts, Jesus generally informed us about how many of those invited, do make it through the entire gauntlet... (Luke22:31; Matt.24:13; Luke13:23,24; Matt.7:13,14,21,22,23; Matt.19:25,26; Matt.22:8,14).
Although the numbers 10 and 2 are symbolic, they do also accurately reflect a general comparison of quantity. We are assured of this due to Matt.22:14."

Thank you for your loving support. It means more than you know. I know that you also are contending with troubles. We all have need of endurance (Heb.10:36; Luke 21:19; Heb.12:1)
With affection,
Pearl
