Hide? Or Herald? / Stay? Or Flee?

Still continuing to be augmented. New conclusion added.


"Pearl, please listen to a bit of advice.

You are having people "out" themselves when it seems it is really not the time to do so. It seems to me it is the time to remain hidden until Christ sends us out to go ruling in the midst of our enemies. Obadiah hid 100 prophets by 50 in caves, David hid himself from king Saul. Mordeciai told Esther not to reveal her people or her identity:
Esther 2:10 -Now Esther had not disclosed her people or her lineage, for Mordecai had instructed her not to do so.
If you reveal yourself now, you will face unnecessary trials and persecution you don't have to face at this time, the time will come for that but it is not now. Please consider this carefully."


"Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house."
"Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning".

Matt.10:16-39 (click on to read); Mark8:35

First of all, the people you speak of did not "out themselves".

They simply started obeying the scriptures, were noticed because of it, and then were subjected to scrutiny, slander, and expulsion. This was done, not by them, but by the false doctrines of the "wicked steward", and the army of Gentile elders---that steward's long arms (Dan.11:31; Jer.7:30; 19:4; Dan.11:38,39,10,22; 8:11; 2Thess.2:4; Rev.13:15; 19:20; 17:6,3; 11:7). 
This circumstance and event is a common theme in end-time prophecies (John16:2,4,1; Luke21:24; Rev.11:2; 13:10).
Christ's advice, is that when faced with falsehood, we must confess Christ's truth, and not seek to "save our souls"...the life and identity we may possess (Matt.10:32; Eph.4:25; Ps.26:4; Mark8:35). This is also required in the time of the end, when faced with doctrines of demonic deception (1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13,14,15,16; 17:14; 19:11,14,8). If we shrink back, we do not please our Master (Heb.10:38; Rev.2:20; 3:1,2,3,4; 2:25; 12:17D).
Without a death for truth in imitation of Christ (Rom.6:5; Heb.13:13; Rev.20:4; 13:15; 11:7,8);
we will not be sealed as tested and faithful (Rev.6:9,10,11; Rev.19:7,8,14; 6:9,11; 11:7) (Rev.2:10; Luke22:31; John12:24,25).
Are we afraid of losing an identity among men?
Our identity/label among men, is symbolized in the Bible by the "garment" we wear (and is seen by others). (Matt.24:15,16,18; 6:28,30; Rev.19:8). We may think we have adequate "covering" while labeled one of "Jehovah's Witnesses", but we do not (Rev.3:17,18). We must seek the identity that will not be taken from us (Rev.16:15; 17:16) (Matt.6:19; Rev.3:5; 6:11; 1Pet.3:3,4; Rev.12:1; 1:16; Rom.13:14; 2Cor.4:6) (Col.3:9,12; 2Cor.5:2,3).
Let us be clothed by our association with the light of Christ, rather than the darkness of demons (Jer.13:16; John12:35; Isa.50:3; 13:10; Jer.4:28; Rev.20:7,8; 9:2,3,10,11; 13:7,10; Isa.49:9; 42:7) (Isa.60:2; Col.1:13; Heb.3:1; Matt.10:32; Rev.12:17; 2:25; 3:11; Luke12:36,35).
We are not to be anxious over our identity before men (John5:44,41; 12:43; Rom.2:29; 1Thess.2:6) (Mark8:35; Eph.6:13,14,15,16,17).
God will provide a garment of incorruptible glory, to those who seek to please His face (Rom.9:26; Zech.3:8,3,4,5; Job 29:14; Matt.6:28; Hosea14:5; Isa.52:1; 61:10; Rev.21:2; Isa.49:18; Ps.45:14,15; 132:16; 149:4; Rev.3:11).

Many things can seem true to us. Is that not true of the false doctrines we used to believe? Yet as knowledge and refinement progress, we often realize we were shortsighted (Prov.14:12). 

Many things can seem false to us. We must be open to Christ in however he has arranged to teach and refine us (1Cor.3:18; Rev.3:17,18,19; Prov.1:23).
The bottom line is, we are all fools, especially compared to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Our very lives depend upon gaining their graces, and the favor of their wisdom, without which we expire in the dark (Isa.38:17).
Have you privately petitioned God for confirmation of your perceptions,
by means of a clear sign?

Although you give scriptural accounts of times when God's people hid,

you do not provide scriptures which tell those in our shoes today, to hide.
You do not provide scriptures which reveal when and how a supposed switch from hiding to heralding occurs.
What relevant and related scriptures then, are there, for me to "carefully consider"?
There are scriptures for varying situations, and various scriptural ways to respond appropriately to each of them.
We are not entitled to the liberty of applying them as seems right to us.
The Bible itself tells us when and how to apply them.

Please note Ec.3:

 1  There is a time for everything,

    and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2     a time to be born and a time to die,
    a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3     a time to kill and a time to heal,
    a time to tear down and a time to build,
4     a time to weep and a time to laugh,
    a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5     a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
    a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6     a time to search and a time to give up,
    a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7     a time to tear and a time to mend,
    a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8     a time to love and a time to hate,
    a time for war and a time for peace."

So then,

how do we know whether it is now time to hide,
or the time to come out of hiding and herald the truth?
Is it time to stay silent and hide inside the Organization (Ps.26:4),
or is it time to speak openly and not condone the wickedness we perceive,
and as a consequence, be "persecuted for righteousness sake"? (Matt.5:10,11,12)

Jesus Christ himself, told us when to flee (Matt.24:15,16).

It is when we perceive /"catch sight" of, the presence of  "disgusting thing standing in the holy place"
 as spoken of at Dan.9:27 and 11:31,32,33;
which reads:
"31 “His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice (Hosea14:2; Dan.8:11). Then they will set up the abomination that causes desolation. 32 With flattery he will corrupt those who have violated the covenant, but the people who know their God will firmly resist him.
33 “Those who are wise will instruct many (Dan.12:3; Phil.2:15), though for a time they will fall by the sword or be burned or captured or plundered (Rev.13:10,7)."

Please note the previous sections in bold.
Please note that when the "disgusting thing" is perceived and it is then time to leave,
those knowing God will "resist" and "instruct".
They are not said to go and hide, remaining mute.

Not all will come to "perceive" the presence of this abomination
(Matt.13:11; 19:11; Isa.29:11; Luke8:10; 1Cor.2:10), because they are blinded by it, and worship it as marvelous, wonderful, and admirable (2Thess.2:4,9,10,11,12; Rev.13:8,14,15,3).
They become obedient slaves to it's lying doctrines (Rev.13:16; 16:13; Isa.44:20; Ps.144:8; Rom.1:25), rather than obedient slaves to God's Word (Deut.6:6,8; Rev.7:3).
The Chosen are docile captives among these spiritual Gentiles (Rev.13:7; 11:2; Dan.7:21; 8:11,12,13,24), which after all, was Satan's whole motive for this scenario (Rev.12:15,17; 13:1,7,10; 2:10; Matt.24:24,25).

But once we do perceive the truth (and the abomination/disgusting thing, dominating God's Temple/Holy Place --1Pet.2:9,5; Eph.2:20,21,22; 1Cor.3:16)(Rev.11:2; 2Thess.2:4; Dan.7:21; 8:11; Rev.13:7),
then remaining in mute association with it, is not an option.(Ps.26:4; Eph.4:25). When we recognize the abomination among God's Temple (2Thess.2:4; 1Cor.3:16); Christ's direction is to "flee".
(Matt.24:15,16; 2Cor.6:16,17; Rev.2:20; 18:4,5; Jer.51:9,6,45)
(Eph.4:25; 1Tim.4:16; 1Cor.9:16; Matt.5:14,15,16; Eze.33:6; Matt.10:33,32).
  The "Temple" priesthood must repent of their captivity/subjection/slavery to the Beast (Joel1:13; Rev.11:3; 13:7,10), and be restored to function again, according to it's divine purpose (John15:1,2,5,6,8; Luke6:45,44; Matt.7:19; Heb.13:15; 1Pet.2:5,9; Isa.43:21; Mal.3:3; 2:7; Dan.12:11,12; 9:24,25; 12:1; 8:14).

As soon as a chosen priest perceives his captivity and slavery to the disgusting Idol raised up in God's Temple (Rev.13:7,10; 2Cor.11:4,20,12,3; Rom.6:16; Col.3:24), he must repent (Joel1:13; Rev.11:3; 2:16; 3:2,3; Eze.21:12; Rev.13:10) and resume the service he owes to God
(Ec.5:4; Rev.7:15; 22:3; 20:6; 5:10; Isa.60:1)
despite the consequences
(Phil.3:10; Rom.6:5; Rev.13:15; 11:7; 6:9,10,11; 12:11; 20:4).

Once an anointed one "catches sight" of this abomination, it is not permissable for that chosen priest to remain a silent doormat to the Gentiles who trample him (Rev.11:2; Matt.5:13; 2Cor.11:20,3; Isa.51:23; 52:1,2). He owes his subjection to Christ alone as his Lord and Head (Eph.5:23; 2Cor.11:3; Rev.14:4,5; Ps.26:4; 2John1:11).
He owes his neighbors the truth (Eph.4:25; Eze.3:18; John8:32; Mal.2:7).
He owes God his open praise (Ps.78:1,4; 71:17,18; Isa.43:10,21; 1Pet.2:9; Job 15:18)
  The High Priest has set an example for the Chosen (Heb.4:14).... to follow in his steps closely (1Pet.2:21; Rev.14:4). Christ was in subjection to God (1Cor.11:3; John6:38) and his true disciples are also God's slaves..... not slaves to men (1Cor.7:23; Gal.1:10). (Rev.7:3; 14:1; Matt.4:10).
He declared the truth openly, knowing the repercussions (Matt.26:55; Mark10:1; 14:49; Luke19:47; John8:2,20; 18:20; Mark10:33; John10:15,17,18).
Are we to imitate him, or not?
Those "knowing their God" (Dan.11:32) and what he deserves (Isa.42:8; Matt.4:10), will perceive the corrupting force raised up among God's Temple Priesthood, remember the need to be exclusively devoted to God alone (Ex.22:20; Isa.42:8) and "firmly resist" those Gentiles who trample and defile the sanctuary of His Holy Spirit (1Cor.3:16,17).

What is the anticipated consequence today, of "resisting" and "instructing" that which is not sourced with the wicked steward? (Rev.13:17,15)
What happens when the wicked slave's Gentile army of counterfeit priest "elders"
             (Eze.44:6,7,8,9; 2Chron.13:9; 23:6),
             (who have set themselves up, among God's anointed Temple
             -Matt.24:15; 2Thess.2:4; 1Cor.3:16; Eph.2:20,21,22;
               Rev.11:2; Luke21:24; Matt.5:13),
are "firmly resisted", and "instructed" in spirit and truth? (John16:2; Rev.11:7).

Jesus well knew the consequence of courageous obedience and loyal chastity to him (*John16:2; Matt.10:36; Mark8:35; Eph.5:27).
       (*Greek literally states, "Expel you from the assembly
           /place of meeting/Congregation/fellowship)
He said that if we were truly awake, our lamp would be burning (Luke12:35,37; Matt.25:7).
If we have no oil to burn, it is not a good indication (Matt.25:8).

You give scriptures related to hiding, but no scriptural instruction for the remnant to hide,
nor for them to hide the spiritual truths they have been given (Rev.3:18; Matt.25:25), nor to avoid the consequence of shedding light.
They are consistently referred to in prophecy, as courageous heralds in the face of "death" (Rev.6:9,10,11; 12:10,11; 20:4), 
bearing tireless witness, by sounding their priestly trumpets (Joshua6:8; Rev.8:6; Amos3:6,7; Isa.58:1; Eze.33:3,4,5,6; 7:14; Jer.4:5,6,19; 6:1; Joel2:1,15; Zeph.1:16; 14:1; Hosea8:1).
Christ set the pattern for a death-defying witness to truth, and that pattern has always been the Christian standard (2Tim.3:12; Rom.8:17; Col.4:3).
We must wage spiritual warfare along with Christ our Lord (Gen.3:15; Rev.12:7,17; 17:14; 19:11,14,8; 2Cor.10:3,4,5; Matt.12:30; Rev.3:15,16,2),
in order to attain the white robe of our seal (Rev.19:8; 6:9,10,11).

Have you asked God Himself for verification of your convictions?
This is a simple test. Pray as Gideon did, and see how God replies.
If your heart is sincere and open to truth unconditionally,
He will tell you if your eye is good. He will tell you where in His Word to find His light. Do you perceive the body, and how it works? (1Cor.11:29; 12:18,28; 14:32; Eph.2:20; Rev.22:6; 10:7; Amos3:7; Rev.1:20)

I see the "disgusting thing standing in the holy place" as clear as crystal.
Visions of God are not without force!
Should I and others not flee, because you advise against it?
Only those "leaving the City" will be offered the marriage feast (Matt.22:9)

       (Matt.22:9 literally says "those on the way out of the City", 
        which tells us that the standard for invitation, is to be 
        exiting apostate "Jerusalem", which would be the same 
        ones who are obeying Jesus.... Matt.24:16). (See ISV)

        Jesus promised, that anyone (anointed or not) brave enough to leave

        the apostate "city" Jerusalem; would be invited to the marriage feast 
        of the Lamb (Matt.22:2,8,9; Luke14:15; Rev.19:7,9,10; 22:6; 
        Rev.1:1; 5:2,5,7; 6:1). That feast has begun.
        At Matt.22:9, the Greek actually says specifically...
         n_ Acc Pl f
         ...that although it is often translated ("street corners", "broad way", etc.),
         it is those who are on the road "leaving" the City, which are invited to 
         this end-time spiritual feast of truth.

Jesus said to "remember the wife of Lot". Why?
Because we are not to hesitate in fleeing, nor even look back at the condemned abomination we leave behind!
Note Luke17:31-33
"31"On that day, the one who is on the housetop and whose goods are in the house must not go down to take them out; and likewise the one who is in the field must not turn back. 32"Remember Lot's wife. 33"Whoever seeks to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it."

We must not seek to preserve a life related to the counterfeit kingdom Organization of "Jehovah's Witnesses". It is a counterfeit Mt. Zion, and a counterfeit Temple served by counterfeit Gentile priests and princes (Rev.9:7; 13:1) who have stolen their royal authority from Christ's kings (Rev.1:5; 5:10; 17:12,17; 3:11).

Even after the wicked steward Governing Body/False Prophet/dominating Harlot, is removed; the Organization will still be the blasphemous wild beast of Rev.13:1,4.

Some anointed will return after the downfall of the governing body/Harlot....not realizing the full and accurate interpretation of Revelation's identities.
Many interpret the "man of lawlessness" as being the GB (spiritual Jews/priests/called ones/from the "earth" -Rev.13:11; 19:20; 8:10,11), not realizing that the "man of lawlessness", consists of spiritual Gentiles (non-anointed) and is the first wild beast from the "sea" (Rev.13:18,1,7; 11:2).
There is no reforming the Organizational Idol(/Beast's Image) even after the harlot is thrown off. It's very concept is an abomination in God's face (Isa.42:8).
For those invited who do not perceive this "disgusting thing"
              ("Gentiles" ruling over God's true Temple 
               -2Thess.2:4; Matt.24:15,16; 1Cor.3:16; Rev.13:7; 11:2) 
accurately, and so, return to it (Luke21:21);
the role of "ten kings" who rule with the beast (beast-eighth king) during the final hour (2Thess.2:3; Rev.17:11,12), is the prophetic position reserved for them (Rev.17:11,12; 3:17; 1Cor.4:8).
These ten horns will also be condemned, along with the Beast, for their not realizing that God is the strength and hope for the faithful (Heb.13:14,13; Phil.3:20)....
...Not an army of spiritual Gentiles ("elders" and "overseers"), who make up the "image" of a counterfeit "spirit-directed" Idol, that stands in defiance of God's Will and true "organization"...the administration of Holy Ones, the True Temple and abiding place of His Holy Spirit, and the Body of Christ.
(Rev.13:14,15; Zech.4:7; Rev.8:8) (Eph.1:4,5,9,10,11,12,13,14,18,19,20,21,22,23; Eph.2:20,21,22; 1Cor.3:16; 12:11,12,14,18,27,28)

The genuine and faithful ambassadors of that Temple,
are now being trampled by the blasphemous counterfeit.

The Will of God is for the lowly to be raised up by Him, and the high to be brought low (Dan.4:17) (Matt.23:12). How?
Not by the power of men and their idol of stone, but by the power of God's spirit (Zech.4:6,9,7; Rev.8:8; Mark9:42) (Jer.17:5; Ps.40:4).

Jesus clearly knew his path. One of his fellows tried to dissuade him (Matt.16:22,23).
The path of holiness is also clear during this time of great test and sorting (Amos9:8,9,10,11,12,13; Isa.54:8,11,9,10; Rev.6:14; Heb.12:27; 1Cor.3:13,14; Ps.102:26).
Will we hide our "talent of gold" and shrink back to destruction?   (John12:42; Matt.25:25,30; Heb.10:38,39; Rom.1:17) 
Spirit and scripture, make the path of life clear; along with the requirements to be on it. 
(Matt.7:14; Isa.35:8; 40:3; 62:10; Matt.24:16; Eze.36:8; Isa.49:11; Jer.50:5; Ps.118:20; Rev.19:8)(Eze.17:23; Matt.13:31,32)

"For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it." (Mark8:35)

"Israel's watchmen are blind, they all lack knowledge; they are all mute dogs, they cannot bark; they lie around and dream, they love to sleep." (Isa.56:10; Matt.25:5)
'"What I say to you I say to all, 'Be on the alert! in case he should come suddenly and find you asleep." (Mark13:37,36)
"So then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober." (1Thess.5:6) 
"Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming." (1Pet.1:13)
“Let your waist be belted and your lamps burning.” (Luke12:35)
"Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist" (Eph.6:14)

Yes, there will be those hiding in caves,
but is it the right time for that now?
Notice the outcome for them. It is not good....

"15 Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; 16 and they said to the mountains and to the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; 17 for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?" (Rev.6:15,16,17)
Christ has been ruling in the midst of his enemies since the First Century.
(Luke17:21; 11:20; Matt.11:12; 26:64; 28:18; 21:4,5; Acts2:33; Rev.3:21; Eph.1:20,21,22,23; Acts4:11; John1:49; 1Cor.15:24,25; 1Pet.3:22)

His force goes out through Zion's faithful sanctuary (Ps.110:1,2; 20:2; 2Cor.5:20; Col.1:13; Eph.2:6; Isa.2:3,10,11,12,17,18,19,22) ...also since the first century, when the gathering and sealing of it's members began.
We Chosen already have our authority to trample snakes and scorpions (Luke10:19; Matt.23:33; Eze.2:6,7; Rev.9:3,10; Eph.6:12,16).
The question is, will we faithfully use it?
(Eph.6:11; 2Cor.6:7; 1Tim.1:18; 6:12; 2:3; 2Tim.1:8; 2:9,10; 4:5)
Or will be abdicate?
(Rev.17:17; 3:11) (Prov.19:10; Ec.10:7; Rev.9:7,10,16,19)


If you have scriptures that specifically tell the remnant in the time of the end, to be silent and hide until some signal; then send them to me, as well as the scriptures that declare what that signal is.


The "wilderness" is not a place to hide, but a place of testing and sifting, just as it was for Christ (Matt.4:1). What scripture guides you to believe that the "wilderness" means Christ's footstep followers should be hiding?
Note that the harlot, (who is not hiding), is also in the wilderness, along with the "woman" (Rev.17:3; 12:6).
Note that the "woman" is fed while in the wilderness, for a symbolic period of 1.260 days "away from the face of the serpent"--not "hiding".
Through her testing, she will be protected from failure (Rev.3:10; Jude1:24; Matt.19:25,26; Rom.14:4; 8:31; Eph.3:20; 2Pet.1:10; 2Tim.4:18; 2Cor.2:11; Rom.16:25,26,27; 1Pet.5:10)
God arranges that, through Christ (Heb.1:2; Rev.1:1; 12:6; Eph.5:29; Acts3:20; Eph.1:9; 3:3,4,9; Col.1:26). Who do these fathers use on earth, to feed the "woman" these life-saving provisions? Note the connection between Rev.12:6 and Rev.11:3 (1,260). She cannot be fed "*hidden manna" through the two witnesses, unless those two have already proven victorious (Rev.2:17) and productive.
("They" are not silent and hiding during the very same time that "she" is being fed in the wilderness. They are "prophesying" -Rev.11:3)
(*"hidden" manna-- John6:31,51; Mark8:29,30; John14:21,22; 6:51,65; Matt.13:11; Col.2:2,3; 4:3; Isa.29:11; Dan.12:10)

We must understand, that not all prove victorious at the same time. Called ones have been being selected and sealed since the first century. Remember....the daystar rises within individual hearts (Rev.2:28; 2Pet.1:19) after their victory, and when their time of Satan's testing is accomplished.

"Away from the face of the serpent" is not hiding. It is a protection which being graced with truth affords. Satan seeks to devour with his mouth, and all that comes forth from it (2Cor.2:11; 1Pet.5:8; Rev.12:15; Job 41:14,18,19,20,21,22,34).
Conquering Satan by means of our heralding (Rev.12:10,11), is done individually, and has been occurring in every sealed member of Christ's body, since the first century (Heb.2:14; Luke10:17,18; 1John2:14; Rom.8:37).

If you are not yet at the feet of Christ, nor sitting at the table being served by him (Rev.3:20; Luke12:37; John14:23), then you have not yet fed him (Luke17:7,8,9,10). If we are hiding and silent, we give Christ nothing [Dan.8:11; 12:11; Eze.22:30 (Ps.106:23); Isa.63:5], and Satan has overreached and swallowed us into the power of his abyss of paralyzing death. Here is the connection to Rev.11:3....Eze.13:5.
It is time to "repair the wall" of protective truth, so that our Land can stand firm in this day of battle (Eze.22:30). The present wicked steward is contented with whitewashing it's defects (Eze.13:14,15,16; 22:28; Isa.28:15,18). 
"He" insists on arguing in favor of falsehood, continuing to whitewash a wall of lies which will not remain standing!
Their defensive doctrines are crumbling.

[SEE Eze.13:1-16 --(click on to open); 1Thess.5:3,6] (Acts23:3; Eze.13:12; 22:28; Joshua6:4,20; Rev.8:6)

We are not dismayed at the persecution which now befalls us. All things are proceeding according to prophecy (Rev.6:9,10,11; 12:11; Matt.5:11,12; John16:2). God's Word is reliable (2Pet.1:19).
Let the words of Jesus encourage us...
"When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near." (Luke21:28)

We battle those messengers of demonic deception (Rev.16:13,14,15,16; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.12:15; Eph.6:12; 2Cor.10:3,4,5).
If you are not using what truth you have been given (Matt.25:22,4), you will not be given more (Matt.13:12).
"Protection" is not the same as restrictive chains. You must be faithful in leastbefore you are given "much" (Luke16:10; Matt.25:23). Silence and hiding have nothing to do with fulfilling that prerequisite (Rev.21:8).
If we see faithful brothers of Christ being "killed" by the Steward's minions, we are not to condone it in silence (Prov.17:15; Ex.23:6,7; Prov.18:5; Ps.119:29; 94:21; Rev.20:9; 18:4)

Now IS the time for learning and being refined (Mal.3:1,2,3; Rev.3:18; Prov.1:23). But immediately...we offer others what we have received (Matt.10:27,28; Luke12:35), or we will receive no more!
(Matt.21:19; 13:12; John15:1,2,8). WAKE UP!!!!
If you wish to verify your interpretations,
send me the scriptures!
...Not just references to those who have hidden in the past,
but those which prove that we are to hide, how long, and what the signal is to stand up and let the truth set us free.
Your references thus far...
Isaiah 49:2 -"He has made My mouth like a sharp sword, In the shadow of His hand He has concealed Me; And He has also made Me a select arrow, He has hidden Me in His quiver."
    When Christ draws us from his quiver to use us, we'd better be firm,
    sharp, ready, and willing!
    (Luke10:3; Mark16:15; Ps.110:1,2,3; 45:5; Luke10:19; Matt.28:19,20; 21:41)
    When we are assigned within the body of Christ, we already have our
     assignment (Rom.2:7; Prov.12:24; Deut.23:21; 1Cor.12:18; Rom.12:6,7,8).

Psalms 94:12,13 -"How blessed is the one whom you instruct, O Lord, the one whom you teach from your law, in order to protect him from times of trouble, until the wicked are destroyed."
Do you think the wicked are gone before we should start preaching?
Do you not see that our protection is faith in God's Word (Eph.6:16; James2:26), so that we are not defeated by the hour of test?
(Protection is through having and using truth -2Pet.1:8, not through hiding)

The "wicked are destroyed" by our preaching!!! (Rev.11:3,5; 12:10-11; Jer.23:29).
That preaching is based upon the truth of God's Word (John8:28; 16:13).
The subduing of Christ's enemies will not happen, if we are silent and hiding.
Your reference to this very scripture (Ps.94:12,13), enforces that the woman in the wilderness is "protected"/"given relief" from the forces of failure (Rev.12:15) by means of God's instruction.
Why do you view "protection" and "hiding" as the same word?
Armor protects a soldier during battle.
It is our knowledge, faith, hope, and our eternal incorruption which are guarded during battle.

Because of our common sin of idolatry (Rev.13:8,7; Dan.7:21; Rev.9:7,4), we are not being protected from battle (2Chron.16:9; Dan.11:22; 9:25,26,27).
We are protected...not from our obligation to fight the battle (2Cor.10:3,4,5; Rev.16:14,15; 17:14; 19:11,14,8), but from spiritual defeat (Rev.2:11; 1John5:18; John17:15; Rom.14:4) through inactivity (2Pet.1:8; Matt.25:25,28,29,30). Protection from defeat, is not the same as passivity.

If you are not being fed the marriage feast now, not proclaiming what you are learning, are not prepared for battle;
 then you are not yet sealed, nor have you received the full spirit of the truth, nor are you offering the proper food at the proper time.
That will not change if you do not light your lamp and keep it burning (Luke12:35,36; Matt.5:14,15,16; Luke8:18; Matt.6:22,23; Luke11:35,23).

The "light" in you (that tells you to hide silently in the dark) is darkness, and you do not know where you are going. (1Cor.3:18; Jer.26:5,6; 1Thess.5:1,2,4,5,6,7,12,19,20; John12:35,36) You are already being called out of Egypt! When will you arise?
Why have you not responded to Matt.24:15,16 and Jer.51:6?
Once we are "killed" for the sake of truth,
we are victorious. We have won!
Rev.2:10; 6:9,11; 3:3,4; 20:4; Matt.10:32; Rom.6:5
The time for "hiding" is already done.
"Moses" is not a baby anymore.
The time that has passed by is sufficient for growth in the mind of Christ
(Gal.4:19; 1Cor.3:1,2; 2Pet.3:18; Col.1:10; 1Cor.2:16; 14:20; Eph.4:13,14,15).

Do you see the "disgusting thing standing in the holy place", or not?
What did Jesus say?
(Eze.36:8; 34:14; John15:8)
Yet we do not want to "flee" in the way the Organization dictates, by means of a "dissociation letter". 
We do not want to support the accusation that we don't care about God, the Truth, or our former associates 
(Jonah4:11,10; 1Cor.3:8,9; 2Cor.6:1; 5:19,20; Mark16:20; Phil.2:15; 1Thess.5:14; Acts2:40; 20:20,21,22,23,24; Isa.61:3; Matt.15:13; Acts17:29,30,31; Rom.1:25; Rev.13:8). 

The Organization uses 1John2:19 to slander our motive. 
Yet Jesus himself "went out" from the religious system of his day (Matt.23:38,39) 
       [and also commands us to 
       (Matt.24:16; Rev.18:4,5; 2John1:10,11; Eph.5:6,7)]; 
but not before he bore thorough witness to them! 
(Matt.15:24; 10:6; Acts3:26; Luke19:41,42,43,44) 
We must do the same (Eze.33:6; Eph.4:15,25).

1John2:19 is not speaking of leaving the religious system. It's true reference is speaking of the body of Christ, and the invited Called ones who leave union with that body 
       (Col.2:19; 2Cor.11:4,13; Rev.2:20; 1Tim.4:1; 
         Rev.16:13,14,15; 1John4:1; Matt.24:24,25) 
according to how God has arranged it (1Cor.12:18,28,29,8; Rom.12:6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16).

We must care about God's commands.
They include, not remaining with the wicked (2Cor.6:17,18; Rev.18:4; Ps.26:4).
But they also include giving an open witness to all we can, before departing (Eze.2:7,6; 33:6; Acts20:25,26,27; 13:40,41).

But the Beast/Organization forbids the dispersing ("buying and selling")(Rev.13:17) 
of any spiritual provisions from Christ (Rev.3:18)...
                    [Rev.3:18,20; Luke22:18; Rev.3:20 
                      --not allowing them to "buy" the 
                       "olive oil" and "wine" (Rev.6:6) 

           "olive oil": Zech.4:2,3,12,14; Rev.11:4,3; 
                         Matt.25:4; 6:22; John14:17; Eph.1:18;
                         2Cor.4:6; 3:18; 1Cor.12:8

           "wine": John15:8,5,15; Rev.5:9; 20:12; 1:1;
                    Mark2:22 (Job 32:18,19,20,21,22);
                    Isa.65:8,9,10; 62:8,9; Ps.36:8; 46:4,5;
                    Isa.66:11; 55:12; 1Chron.16:33; Rev.22:2; 14:3;
                    Ps.144:9; Rev.14:2; 1Cor.14:15; Rev.15:3;
                    Amos.9:13; Isa.4:2; 55:2; 25:6; 10:27;
                    Joel3:18; Jer.31:12; Hosea14:7; Matt.22:4
                    Mark2:22; Luke5:39; James1:21; 1Cor.3:18;
                    1Cor.5:7; Col.3:10,16; Acts.3:20; Rev.3:20;
                    Eph.4:21,22,23,24,25; Prov.3:9,10,11,12)], 

...under penalty of death (Rev.13:17; 11:7)
(Getting killed/Disfellowshipping)
(Symbolic Death)
Mark 8:35 --(coming-to-life)
