"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).

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.

  1. Good morning sister D

    Thank you once again for a lovely post based on scripture.

    The point you mentioned about Paul witnessing to christians and not to strangers caught my eye.

    How is the ministry supposed to be carried out? Are we supposed to witness to Christians like Paul did? and also minister in the market places for those that are not familiar and associated with "Jehovah's Witnesses"?

    Thanks

  2. While the goal of our ministry is the same as Paul's,
    the means to reach that goal has changed.
    The reason why Paul and Jesus preached in the synagogues and public places (markets, gates, local homes for gathering/meetings) was so that the greatest number of people could be reached. If we employ the same means as the first century, we will not have the same results they did. People no longer gather in City gates or market places en mass. The majority of the populace is no longer gathered and concentrated in small hubs.
    We live in different times and circumstances in comparison to the first century.
    Like Christ and Paul, we seek the most effective means of reaching as many as possible, appropriate to the time in which we live. If I stand at the entrance to my town, I MAY talk to a handful of people, likely none of which are in the spiritual jeopardy of those who have already recieved an understanding of the truth. These must be reached first.
    Today we have the internet, with which I reach thousands weekly. Without this tool, I would reach hardly anyone; especially since my disfellowshipping and being shunned.
    I beleve that the internet is the "little help" promised to the remnant in the time of the end (Dan.11:34).
    We should not overlook though, that a witness to those inside the Beast is imperative. This can be done with the same approach as Paul and Christ. They witnessed to those in covenant with God first, by going to where they gathered...the synagogues. We do have this venue today, when the anointed inside the Beast gather at assemblies and conventions.
    Regarding those who are not anointed, these God will judge (1Cor.5:12,13). There is still a provision for them in the future (Acts17:31; 1Cor.6:2; Acts24:15), unlike those anointed and their associates (Heb.10:26; 6:4,5,6; 1Sam.2:25; 2Pet.2:20,21; 1John5:16) who are in the greatest peril.
    All the Best to you,
    Pearl
