The "Remaining Ones"

I needed to post this forum question here, because the forum of origin did not allow the lengthy response necessary to reply
Here is the question I received:

Let me ask you this question.
Who are the Holy ones who exist on the earth, at the end of the one thousand years of Jesus reign of peace? As they are obviously here on the earth during that time period.
Revelation 20
7 When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison 8and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—and to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. 9 They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. 10 And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

------------------
MY REPLY:

Your scriptural reference highlights a gaping hole in the wall of WT doctrine. They teach that the "144000" are taken up to heaven before the Thousand Years begins. Yet scripture makes clear, that they rule with Christ, on the earth. (Rev.5:9,10)
As important as it is to adjust where they rule, it is even more important to discern when the "Thousand Years" takes place, and when they rule with Christ.
Otherwise, the answer to your question is unattainable.
The rule of Christ is not one of peace, but one to subdue his enemies through spiritual war, fought through "Zion". (Ps.110:1-2; Matt.10:34; Rev.6:4; 2:16; 19:11,14; 17:14; 2:26-27; 12:7; Gen.3:15; 2Cor.10:4-5; Rom.13:12; Eph.6:12; etc.)
The release of Satan from the Abyss occurs just following the thousand years (Rev.20:7-8), as does his attack on the holy ones (Rev.20:9), ...which brings about, Armageddon (Rev.20:8; 16:13-16; 17:14).
Peace does not come, until God's Eternal Kingdom, which obviously lasts longer than the symbolic "one thousand years".

My replies to your question might be hard to comprehend,
based upon when you believe the "thousand years" actually take place. Christ's kingdom of a "thousand years" is not the same period as God's eternal Kingdom, which arrives when the objective of Christ's kingdom is attained, and his enemies are subdued through the work of "Zion" (Ps.110:1,2,3; 2:2,3,9; Rev.2:26,27). That goal is interrupted, by Satan's release and the great tribulation it causes. That is when "the last enemy death", must also be "brought to nothing" (1Cor.15:26,24).
In order to understand the answers to your questions, you need to first know when Christ's kingdom starts and ends...when Satan is released, when this war with Gog and Magog occurs, and when (and how) "fire" comes down "from heaven" to "devour them".
With that foundation already laid
(which you can do if you search these subjects within what I have already written);
The Holy ones who exist on earth during Satan's release,
and the war that he gathers Gog and Magog to fight in (Rev.20:8)
            (who also represent the kings of the earth -Rev.16:13,14,15,16)
...is Armageddon.
Of course we know the WT teaches that there are two different wars in which Satan is judged...
  (1.Armageddon 2.After a literal thousand years of paradise which arrive, after Armageddon)
...but this is a lie.
There is one Great Day of God the Almighty,
and His judgment in the "valley of the decision" (Megiddo),
is final (Rom.9:28).
At that point, the "thousand years" are over, Satan's world has ended, and God's eternal kingdom  
  (which will be given to Christ and his sealed "144,000", joined by the great crowd),
begins (1Cor.15:24,25,26,27,28).
These inherit God's Kingdom, after proving faithful with "a little" during Christ's Thousand Year kingdom plus the great tribulation (Luke 16:10; Matt.25:21; Luke 19:17; Rev.5:10).

  Those present on earth during the period of your questioning, are symbolized by "the remaining ones of the woman's seed" and "the great crowd" (Rev.7:9,14; 12:17; Gen.3:15), and the "two witnesses" of Rev.11:3-4 (John 8:17; Matt.17:3) (Zech.4:9,11,14; Rev.11:3-4)
and Zechariah, chapter 4 (clink on- Zech.4)...also described as the "capstone" (last stone added) of God's spiritual Temple priesthood (1Pet.2:5,9; 1Cor.3:16; John2:19; 4:24; Eph.2:6).

Revelation is full of symbolic illustration. What most readers of it don't grasp, is that each illustration often repeats the same events and identities, in various ways.
The "two witnesses" are also the "great crowd", who come through the Great Tribulation and Armageddon. They are "in white robes" because they were killed for their part in Armageddon (Rev.6:9,10,11; Rev.19:14,8). They most certainly are priests ("serving God day and night in his Temple", which only priests are permitted to do. -2Chron.23:6; Rev.7:13,14,15).

You ask a question that requires much information if you are to see the full picture.... due to the WT and it's teachings of demons (Rev.16:13,14,15; 12:15; 13:11,15; 19:20). The spiritual battle of Armageddon is necessary because of they and their lying doctrines,
in order to clarify the truth from the lies, as well as to distinguish those who side with each side, bringing the "harvest", to a conclusion (Mal.3:18; Rev.14:16,19).

The opposing sides are lead by Satan (who is then, released) and consists of his "false prophet" leader and it's muscle... the "wild beast".
The opposing side is lead by Christ (who is in the role of Champion for God's supremacy, "Michael") and his "armies of heaven"/sealed and "martyred" anointed messengers of truth (Greek- "angels") (Rev.19:11,14,8; 17:14; 12:7,11; Eph.2:6; 6:12; 2Cor.10:4,5; Rev.1:16,20,5,6).
(Note: You can be "killed" and martyred within Revelation's symbolism, without being physically dead.) (symbolic-death-by-means-of-world)

I welcome any questions you have that may remain. I have a contact form on the right column of this Main Page. This would assure that you reach me, as I do not visit any of the other forums often.

I have written a good amount just recently, on these very subjects of,
the two witnesses
the great crowd
the thousand years
the camp of the holy ones
Armageddon
fire from heaven
etc.
As you can see, grasping a complete answer to your question and seeing it clearly,
requires a bit of work on your part also.
If you are willing to do it, I believe a full answer awaits you. For any need remaining, please use the contact form.

Eyes to See, Ears to Hear...A Mouth to Speak

Update to post below, as follows:
A prophet arises among God's people when they are rebellious [Micah 3:8; Neh.9:26 (Rev.13:5); 2Chron.36:16; Matt.23:34,32; Rev.17:6; 11:8], and need to be warned before destruction arrives (Eze.33:2,3; 16:2; Rev.8:2; Isa.58:1; Joel 2:1,11,15,2; Matt.24:21; Isa.28:21)....a deserved destruction that is due for their idolatrous abominations (Rev.13:8; Jer.5:7; Isa.1:21).
 After refinement (Mal.3:1,2,3; Zech.13:9,8; Rev.8:12; Job 23:10; Isa.48:10; Rev.3:18; Dan.12:10; Hosea 2:23) a small remnant will be saved (Eze.22:30; 13:15; Isa.59:16; Ps.106:23; Zech.3:9 (Isa.66:8); Zech.3:4,8; Isa.1:18; Jer.50:20; Isa.64:4; 10:22; Joel 2:13,17,18,19,31,32; 1:14,13; Rev.11:3; Joel 3:14,15,16).

I have made many additions
There are only a couple of scriptures I couldn't find, but will insert when I do.
---------------------------------

A LETTER I RECEIVED:

Dear Pearl,
What I  cannot understand is why all those Jw's in the watchtower organization do not see the false things within it or question certain teachings as I have done. I am nobody special just a simple imperfect man yet I can see these things & truths have been revealed to me through the scriptures & the likes of ones like yourself. You though, are so much more intense with a deeper understanding than most & I find myself captured by your writings & insight & the way everything you say is backed up with scriptures. But what about the ordinary ones like me that may not be anointed but just love God & Christ & want to live by heed their word? What are we to do? I feel I need to do something, it's like a burning fire to act on what I know.
--------------------
MY REPLY:

Hello,

Remember what Jesus said about some being taken and some left behind in the time of the end?
(Luke 17:34,35). Jesus tells us where they are taken... (Luke 17:37; Matt.24:28,16; Rev.11:7,8; Eze.36:8; Matt.22:8,9,10) (Matt.7:20; 12:33,35; Luke 6:45; John 15:16; Eze.36:8; Matt.24:16) 
...and what the requirements are for being awoken at "dawn" (Gen.19:15,14; Luke 17:28,29,30,32; Matt.25:5,6,7) 
...and gathered (Isa.11:12,10; 56:8; 60:4; 62:10; Ps.60:4; Jer.23:3; 30:17; Matt.24:31,15,16).

There is a reason why some understand and see clearly, and some don't.
God tells us why (2Thess.2:9,10,11,12; Prov.2:1,2,3,4,5; Jer.29:13; 2Chron.16:9).
Jesus also explains why (Matt.13:15,16; Matt.11:15,25; 1Cor.2:10; James 1:5; Luke 11:10).
There will only be few saved (Luke 17:26; 1Pet.3:20; Matt.7:14; Luke 18:26,27; Matt.24:22; Isa.10:22).
Any saved, are due to the decision and salvation of God, who reads hearts (1Sam.16:7; Dan.10:12; Eze.9:4).

The reason why I am able to perceive more than fellow called ones, is because within the body of Christ, with it's many and various assignments and members (1Cor.12:28,29,18);  I was called by God to be His last prophet.
As such, I was given educational visions (Num.12:6; Matt.10:27). Any understanding I am able to provide, I was given. There is no reason to boast (1Cor.4:7). 
It is to God's prophets that He reveals His sacred secrets (Rev.10:7; Amos 3:7; Eze.29:21; Zech.4:9,11,13,14; Rev.11:3,4). This is why they are a part of the foundation (along with the apostles -1Cor.3:10; 15:10; 2Pet.3:15), upon which the work of the rest of God's spiritual temple priesthood, is supported (Eph.2:20,21,22; Rev.18:20; 1Thess.5:19,20,21; 1Cor.14:32; Prov.9:1).
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2012/12/a-me-and-another-anointed-one-hi-pearl.html)

(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/07/discerning-body-god-of-order.html)

Christ's prophets are the "seven stars"/"angels", of the "seven congregations" (Rev.1:16,20; 2:29; 1Cor.14:32,33;  Jer.26:5; 25:4; Rev.1:1; 11:3; 22:6,9; 10:7).
Each star/prophet/"messenger" --("angel" in Greek) (Mal.3:1; 2:7,4; 3:3,4,1; Rev.1:1; Isa.40:3; 63:9; Zech.4:9,14; Rev.11:4,3; Matt.17:11; Matt.25:6),
is the light/lamp/flame (Jer.1:9; 23:29; Rev.11:5; 1Thess.5:19,20)/prophet/messenger,
for each "lamp stand"/congregation/Holy Ones, present during that prophet's era (Rev.1:20; Matt.5:15,16; 1Cor.14:32,33).

(You can use the search box, "seven stars" for more information.)

Just as there are "seven angels"/Stewards/Watchmen, of  the "seven Congregations"
(Jer.6:17 watchmen/"watchers" have eyes Rev.5:6 and a trumpet/voice Eze.33:6; Isa.58:1; Jer.6:17; Eze.3:17)
which depict the "seven horns" (kings -Rev.17:12 a)/faithful true prophets of, and directed by, Christ as their Head (Rev.5:6; 1:20);
There are also "seven hills"/"seven heads"/"seven kings" directing the body of  the Beast as "heads", (Rev.17:9,10), which depict the UNfaithful false prophets/(Stewards), 
(Lam.2:14; Rev.19:20; Jer.2:11) (Jer.14:14; Isa.56:10; Lam.4:14; Rev.18:24; 17:6; Isa.29:9,10) who were of Christ (Col.2:19; Jude 1:10,11; 1John 3:12; Rev.2:14; Heb.6:4,5,6).
These "heads" have received a kingdom of this world, now 
       [1Cor.4:8; Matt.6:1,2; Luke 20:46,47 
            (Who are the "Orphans" and "Widows"?)] 
       (Rev.9:1; Heb.6:6; 1John 2:15),
over the "Wild Beast" organization of spiritual Gentiles.
These two sets of "seven" kings 
[seven horns (Rev.5:6,10) against seven heads (Rev.17:9,10]
are the ones battling in Armageddon (Rev.16:13,14,15; 17:14; 19:11,14,8; 12:17,7; Gen.3:15).
Jesus should be head over them all (Rev.19:16; 5:10; 1:5,6); 
(John18:36 -- "Who are Kings of Earth?")
but the unfaithful have left their Master's service (Col.2:19; Jer.2:20; Rev.17:2; 2:20; 19:20; 13:15,7) (Matt.24:24,25,10,11,48,49,50,51; Hosea 6:5).

The "TEN horns" on those seven "heads", proudly give credit, and surrender their future kingdom (Dan.7:18,22; Matt.25:21), and present "royal authority" (Luke 10:19), to the beast (Rev.17:7,12,13,17; 13:4,7,8). They don't rule over the beast (as the "heads" do), but rather, 
they submit to the beast, 
while supplying the Beast and it's "heads", with the power and authority of their royal horns. 
Over the seven heads (hills/kings), their ten horns, and the entire Beast...is the Mother Covenant of Death (Rev.17:18,9,5; Isa.28:15)
"Mothers", are Covenants (Gal.4:26,24)

In contrast
the faithful horns/kings of Christ, humbly give credit to and surrender their royal authority, in submission to God and Christ as "head" (Rev.4:10,11) (Rev.5:6; 1:5,6; 19:16; Eph.1:22; Col.1:18).
("Who are the 'Kings of the Earth'?")
These remain under the Mother Covenant of Life (Gal.4:26; John 8:32; 6:63; Rev.22:17).

Despite the faithful work of God's prophets...
God's people (who are the Chosen -1Pet.2:9,10), with few exceptions, reject the prophets God sends to them (Matt.23:31,34,35; Rev.18:24) (Rev.11:3,7,10; 16:6; 6:9,11; Matt.5:11,12).
I am no different in being rejected by the great majority of those claiming to be God's chosen nation 
(    )(Rev.2:2; )(Jer.6:17). 
A prophet arises among God's people when they are rebellious [Micah 3:8; Neh.9:26 (Rev.13:5); 2Chron.36:16; Matt.23:34,32; Rev.17:6; 11:8], and need to be warned before destruction arrives (Eze.33:2,3; 16:2; Rev.8:2; Isa.58:1; Joel 2:1,11,15,2; Matt.24:21; Isa.28:21)....a deserved destruction that is due for their idolatrous abominations (Rev.13:8; Jer.5:7; Isa.1:21) (Ps.135:15,16,17,18; Isa.43:8; 42:19; Eze.12:2; Mark 4:11,12).
 After refinement (Mal.3:1,2,3; Zech.13:9,8; Rev.8:12; Job 23:10; Isa.48:10; Rev.3:18; Dan.12:10; Hosea 2:23) a remnant will be saved (Eze.22:30; 13:15; Isa.59:16; Ps.106:23; Zech.3:9 (Isa.66:8); Zech.3:4,8; Isa.1:18; Jer.50:20; Isa.64:4; 10:22; Joel 2:13,17,18,19,31,32; 1:14,13; Rev.11:3; Joel 3:14,15,16).

Yet as you and many like you demonstrate; God does not allow the righteous to be destroyed along with the wicked (Gen.18:25; Job 34:10). He has called you out of "Sodom" and "Egypt" (symbols for God's rebellious nation)(Hosea 11:1,4; Rev.11:8; Matt.16:21; 23:37,34; Rev.18:24) (Jer.23:14; Deut.32:15,16,6,18,19,32,33; Rev.14:19)
and you have responded
Although this is an era filled with tribulation, confusion, desolation, captivity, and calamity (Rev.13:7,10; Isa.49:24,25; Jer.31:11)
our being rescued is a boundless reason to rejoice in our God! (Rev.7:10; Luke 18:26,27)
I hope you will join the forum to give and to gain support, with others also going through the end with opened eyes, and all the persecution that the choice of obedience entails (Matt.10:22; Mark 8:35).

Remember that the marriage banquet was filled with guests, both righteous and unrighteous (Matt.22:10; Rev.19:9). God surely wants to feed His "true words" to all that will accept His invitation (Matt.5:45; 22:10; Rev.21:6; Isa.55:1). You have accepted. Therefore, you will be fed. 
If you obey the scriptures that are teaching you, you will be saved from this dreadful day (Luke 21:36; Eze.33:11; Prov.7:2; Deut.30:11,16). The ones who are drunk and asleep (1Thess.5:6,7; John 12:35; Matt.25:13) do not know at all the day upon them, because they are physical, and do not discern the tumultuous Battle now taking place spiritually (Luke 21:34; 1Cor.2:14) 
(http://armageddon-obadiah.blogspot.com/2013_01_01_archive.html)
Like the Jewish religious leaders of the first century, they do not discern the hour of their inspection 
(Luke 19:42,44; 21:36; 1Thess.5:4,6; Eph.5:14; Rev.2:28; 22:16; 2Pet.1:19; Eph.5:14 C).

If you, as a "hearer", are moved to share the things God is gracing you with, you can 
(Rev.22:17; 21:6; Matt.22:9,10).
There are many forums where people gather to discuss the Bible. Most are former witnesses who are "leaving the city" (Matt.22:9). Although prophecy tells us that this "searching" for the words of God will be widespread (Dan.12:4; Amos8:11);
few will accept and find it (Amos 8:12; Matt.7:14; 10:40,41,42; 25:37,40).
Despite that, those who are able to "hear", should also speak (Eze.2:7).

In the future, I hope to have a campaign to warn as many as possible among the Israel of God (Matt.10:23) about the desolation of "Jerusalem" presently at hand [the Gentile abomination (Rev.11:2; Joel 1:6,7,4,10,15; 2:2,4; Rev.9:3,8,7,11)],
(pearl-disgustingthing.blogspot.com)
and also the destruction that is coming [Jer.25:29; Eze.7:2,5,6,8,16,26,14; Joel 3:14; Eze.21:6,7,14,12; Ec.10:7]. 
I would be very grateful if you offered yourself at that time.
I am in the process of writing a short series of articles on the genuine fulfillment of Matt.24:14.
They are under the subject of "Good News". Only the first one of three has been published. As I finish the other two, you will find them released upon the front page. They will give the suggestions for what to do at that time.

Thank you very much for writing me, and I hope the scriptures contained in this letter address many of your present thoughts.

Love in Christ,
Pearl

New Covenant -- For Whom?

UPDATE TO "Who Should Partake?" as follows;
 (Clarifications added)
"There were "many" who "put faith in Jesus", even among the Jewish leaders. (John 8:30; 12:11,42; 7:31; 11:42,45; 2:23)      None of them were at the Lord's evening meal, except the ones Jesus "chose" (John13:1,18; 14:3; 15:16).  These four verses were spoken only to the 11 during that last evening meal.
Of those few Jesus said, "I chose you twelve, did I not?", and
"You did not choose me, but I chose you, and appointed you to bear fruit...fruit that will last." (John6:70; 15:16) These can only "bear fruit", because they are branches of the one vine, Christ (John15:5,4,8
A bridegroom chooses his own bride. But when we choose to simply put faith in Christ, that is our own choice. Putting faith in, and being chosen, are two different things.
So which is it? Did Christ die for his bride? Or, did he die for all those putting faith in him?
The answer, is that he first dies (during the period of the New Covenant with spiritual Israel) only for his bride (Eph.1:3-23; 5:23,25,26,27,30; Rev.21:2; 5:9,10; 7:15,14; 20:6). The members of the body of Christ are "firstfruits"...first to be ransomed (Rev.20:6; James1:18; Rev.14:4) under the new mother covenant, "Jerusalem above", established by the blood of Christ (Gal.4:24,26). How do all others receive life? (1John2:2) This Bride becomes one with Christ, and she symbolically demonstrates that unity by taking Christ into herself, making him one with her (1John4:4; Matt.19:6; 1Cor.6:17; Eph.2:18; John17:21) (Gal.4:19; Rev.12:2). The result is the sealed "woman's" "seed"  consist of both, firstfruits and children to follow the firstfruits. (being designated firstfruits has nothing to do with timing. There were first fruits and second fruits in the first Century as well as there are today.  Both receive life through the sealed woman.  Birth order is not strictly chronologically, but is a designation of divine "choice".)   They both receive life...THROUGH THE WOMAN / the sealed Bride of Christ (Rev.22:17; Heb.1:14; John7:38; Matt.10:40,41; John6:63; Phil.2:16).....the "firstborn", who are caught up to heaven (Rev.12:5; Eph.2:6) and also all her seed "on earth" (Rev.12:17; 22:17).

The following scriptures demonstrate that the purpose of the emblems, is initially for that bride of Christ...
"For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread." (1Cor.10:17)
This partaking of the bread, is for those who are the parts of the body of Christ (1Cor.12:27). Can you see that?
Who is one body with Christ, if not his chosen wife? He is the savior of that wife/body, through the ransom of his blood (Eph.5:23,25,26,27,30; Rev.21:2,3; 5:9,10). He also becomes the savour/life giver/everlasting father (1John2:2; John10:10; Isa.9:6; 1Cor.15:45), to those of his children, who come through his heavenly wife (Eph.2:6; Luke10:20; Gal.4:26; Rev.12:2; Heb.12:22,24,23; Matt.5:48,45; 22:10; Rev.22:17)."

Does God have an organization?

A QUESTION:
I have been thinking about how JW's always teach about "Jehovah's Organization", but that term is nowhere in the Bible. Why do JW's always refer to their organization as "Jehovah's Organization", if that does not really exist?

Jesus said he was the vine of truth (John15:5,4,8; Matt.7:20), and there were branches chosen to be attached to him. These are living stones (1Pet.2:5), assembled and erected to become a spiritual Temple not made by human hands,  whose stones worship in spirit and truth (Acts17:24; 1Chron.22:10; Heb. 1:5, 13; John 2:19, 21; Zech. 4:9,10; Isa.4:2; Zech.3:8,9; Rev.5:6; Mark14:58; 1Cor.3:16; 1Pet.2:5; 1Cor.12:27; John4:21,24), in which God's spirit would dwell, His priesthood (Rev.1:5,6; Mal.2:7; 1Cor.6:19,20). That is God's representation on earth...the Temple of His spirit, present with mankind (Rev.21:2,3; 20:6; 22:3,4; 14:1). They are ambassadors, substituting for Christ (2Cor.5:20), stewards of God's sacred secrets (1Cor.4:1). They are heavenly Mount Zion (Rev.14:1; Heb.12:22,23,24; Eph.2:6; Rev.3:21;  Col.3:1; Isa.2:2,3; 43:10,21; 1Pet.2:9; Gal.4:24,26), New Jerusalem, THE LAMB'S WIFE with Christ as Head of that one body (Col.1:18; Eph.1:22,23,13,14,7,8,9,11,3,4,5; 5:23,25,26,27,30,32; Rev.21:2), with which, as a wife, Christ is one in spirit (Matt.19:6; 1Cor.6:17; Eph.2:18; John17:21) as it's Head.
All members of his one-spirit body, are his wife. God's "mountain-like" (Rev.14:1) organization present within the earth, are all His chosen priests who are serving Him faithfully (Rev.20:6; 5:9,10; 1Cor.6:19,20).
    Yet prophecy tells us that there will also be, in the time of the end, a counterfeit mountain, a counterfeit Zion, and a counterfeit Kingdom (Zech.4:7; Matt.17:20; Mark11:23; Rev.8:8). Can you tell the difference between them? You will, if you observe God's Word.(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/02/jehovahs-genuine-mountain.html)

"Catching sight" of the Beasts

DONE EDITING

What follows is a segment of a letter I wrote in reply to one I received. The one I received was full of experiences that one family has endured while in association with the Wild Beasts of Rev.13:1,11 and Rev.19:20.
as follows:
------------------------------------

 (Matt.24:15)

MY REPLY:

"I am glad to hear that you are enjoying reading at the site. 
The work is hard for me, but when I hear that others are benefiting, it is comforting.

I share the baptism experience with you. I went to meetings for years before baptism.
I was doing field service regularly, giving talks, and even did pioneer hours, placing over 50 books one month. I couldn't understand why I was not approved for baptism. My dress was very modest, and my home and children, very clean and well behaved. 
Because I had a toddler and an infant, and they came to the night meeting in new clean pretty pajamas, I was looked down upon. No one understood, that both my babies were very collicky, and when they fell asleep on the way home from Thursday night meeting, I needed to not have to wake them up to change them. If I did, they didn't sleep all night, and neither did I. I had poor health at the time. 
I didn't understand....they were babies. Why was there a dress code for them? They expected them to be in formal dresses, stockings and shoes.

I had to wait many years to be approved. Perhaps Satan thought that this would make me feel that membership in the Beast was more precious, so as not to jeopardize it. I was already anointed by God, long before my baptism (Acts10:47)
In both our cases, it was not a lagging to apply scripture, it was a lagging to be a slave to the rules of the Beast (Isa.28:10). No compassion, love, kindness, or understanding (Micah6:8). Only those who honor the Beast without question are honored (Dan.11:39; Rev.13:15). Honoring God seems irrelevant (Rev.22:9). It was the same with your neat but long-ish hair and slightly elongated sideburns. Such a viewpoint is so physical! (1Sam.16:7; 1Cor.2:14; Matt.23:26)

  I also had the same experience of having elders lie to me to manipulate me. I was shocked when I realized what they were doing, in their efforts to "uncover the truth". Yet this was when I didn't do anything wrong, but I was merely a witness to sin, which sin was freely admitted by the wrongdoer. 
I even had an elder approach me for sex after my husband committed adultery. I was so disgusted by their behavior, during a time when I sorely needed compassion and understanding. During that time, they gave direction that seemed to conflict with scripture. I knew, because I had already studied the Bible from cover to cover. I mildly asked if they could please show me the scriptures that backed up their advice. With a tone of great offense, I was told, "  WAS APPOINTED BY HOLY SPIRIT!"...as if their image of themselves abdicated my right or need to be guided by God's Word. These men (who were lifetime witnesses) obviously did not know what it was like to join "JW's"...
because you came out of a different religion for a good reason. Why did you make that sacrifice and lose your family? Because you loved the truth, and wanted to know and obey the True God. That was the reason why I was drawn to the odor of truth that seemed to exist there. 
Why then, did they expect me to go back to being a slave of men? If that was what I valued, I would not have given everything up to become a "JW". I was nearly stumbled right out (Now I wish I was), but because I thought God wanted me with this people, I put up with so so much. It is just as Rev.9:3-11; 11:2; and Rev.13:7 depict.

As you say, the GB has replaced Christ...even the elders have, who are not even God's anointed priests.
It is not wrong to learn from God's anointed priests (Mal.2:7; Rev.1:5,6; 1Cor.4:1). They are "ambassadors who substitute for Christ" (2Cor.5:20). The problem arises when people do not heed Christ's warning about the existence of false Christs (Matt.24:24,25; 7:15,26), nor his advice to scrutinize a teacher, to examine everything they teach for it's comparison to scripture (1John4:1; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13,14,15). He said that in this way, the true faithful would be identified (Matt.7:20; John7:17,18; 8:47).

I wanted to say about your uneasy feelings that not all is right with the WT doctrines....
God's Word the Bible will never lead us the wrong way. We must be free to examine and obey it, and from anyone who tells us otherwise, we should run. Just as John8:47 tells us, if they are truly from God, they will listen to scripture above all else...and so should we (2John1:9). As 2Cor.13:5 admonishes, we must continually verify that our faith is authentic and genuine (Eph.4:5). We do not take someone else's word for it. They will not be able to save us from the wrath of God, if we allowed ourselves to be mislead by them (Matt.15:14; Eze.14:10; 2Cor.11:20,13; Rev.2:20).

While we regret the loss of former friends and associates within the WT, we remember that the Great Tribulation was described by Jesus as requiring such sacrifices (Matt.10:34,35,22,37; Mark8:35). We remember that God's judgments are just, and He does not destroy the righteous along with the wicked (Gen.18:25; Job34:10). He gives fair warning for us to flee before the destruction arrives at Satan's hand (Rev.18:4; Eze.7:26; Isa.10:22; Rev.9:11; 1Chron.21:15; Ex.12:23; John10:10; Isa.33:1).
It takes courage to speak the truth in the face of the proud and rebellious. But to do so, is to imitate Christ, and obey his direction (1Pet.2:21; Luke22:37; Heb13:13; Eze.12:2; 2Cor.10:5; Matt.23:34,35; Rev.18:24).

We do not get baptized in any way other than what Jesus himself directed (Matt.28:19,20). When the elder told you that God is organized, so that it makes sense to get baptized into the Organization;
we see how these deep things of Satan are so hypocritical. How so?
They assert that letting the entire body of Christ (all anointed partakers) guide what the sheep are taught would be too chaotic! Does this not insinuate that Christ's headship over his Bride members is disorderly? This demonstrates their lack of faith in God being a God of order. Somehow, it is sufficient for only 8 men on the GB to preside over the body of Christ (spiritual Jews -Rom.2:28,29) and their millions of associate spiritual "Gentile" disciples;
but it is insufficient for over 12,000 to do so (Prov.15:22; 11:14; Eph.4:11,12; 1Cor.12:7,8,9,10,11,14,18,21,25,27,28,29,30,31) so that they need to be replaced by non-anointed elders (Eze.44:6,7,8,9; 2Chron.23:6; 2Thess.2:4; Mark13:14). (http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2014/01/disgusting-thing.html)
Such hypocrites!
(pearl-disgustingthing.blogspot.com)

For a people who claim to embody the cardinal love of Christ (John13:35,34),
they are happy to rip you apart if you do not share in the worship their demonic gods....
the false prophet and the image of it's wild beast. (Rev.19:20; 13:15; 20:4 B; Rev.11:7,8,9,10; 6:9,11; 1Cor.4:13; Rom.6:5; John16:2; Heb.13:13).

When is Satan's "short period of time"?

MANY important additions and clarifications added to the entire link, located at:
 http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2014/08/what-happened-in-1914.html
including:

"The final judgment and sentencing of Satan and the demons, occurs "on the Great Day of God the Almighty" (Jude1:6; 2Pet.3:7; 2:9; Job 21:30,17,20; Rev.14:10; 20:10,14,15). This "Great Day" is the same period that is referred to, as Armageddon. Rev.16:14,16 reads;

"They are demonic spirits that perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty. Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon."
Can you see that Satan and the demons are free to "perform signs", using them to "mislead the nations" into war with God and the woman's seed? (Rev.12:17; 20:7,8,9,10). They are no longer chained in the abyss. They, along with Satan's Gentile forces, have been unleashed against the woman's seed (Rev.9:1,2,3,5,10; 13:1,2,4,7). What seems reasonable to you?....
That the cataclysms of our modern world are a result of God's Kingdom being born...
or, the result of Satan's release from the abyss?
Which results in the Great Tribulation?

Satan was restrained by the conquering Christ, in the first century.

(John16:33; 14:30; Luke10:17,18,19; Rev.20:1,2,3; Eph.1:19,20,21)

The WT has taught that Christ's Thousand Year Kingdom and Satan's being chained in the abyss, occurs after Armageddon. They teach that Satan's judgment and destruction come a literal thousand years after that.

Satan and the demons are performing these misleading signs, right now (Rev.16:14,16), through the false prophet and it's Beast Organization. They are presently gathering their forces for The Battle of demonic deception against divine truth; after which, they are destroyed!
These lying doctrines of the WT are strongly entrenched, but must be overturned if we are to accurately perceive where we presently are in the stream of time (2Cor.10:3,4,5).
Christ began ruling at God's right hand in the first century. That symbolic "Thousand Year Kingdom" ends when Wormwood releases Satan and his forces (Rev.8:10,11; 9:1,11) from the abyss. The result, is Satan's "short period of time" (Rev.12:12).
"But after these things he must be released for a little while." (Rev.20:3 C).
    He uses that short time to wage war against Christ and the "woman's seed" (Rev.12:17), [the "camp of the holy ones" (Rev.20:9)] in the Battle of Armageddon. This Battle polarizes and seals all the remaining seed, finishing the harvest (Rev.14:14,15,16).

As long as Satan is able to dominate the world and those deceived (2Cor.4:4; 1John5:19), he is in a symbolic "heaven" (Eph.6:12). He can occupy that position, even while his power to deceive the "sons of light" is "chained" within the realm of his dark, deep "waters" of the deceptive abyss. (Prov.4:19; John12:35; 1Thess.5:4,5,6,7,8,9; Rev.2:24)


When he is "released", none are protected. All called ones are deceived through their subjection to the "man of lawlessness"/"wild beast"/Gentiles (Rev.13:7; 2Thess.2:4; 1Cor.3:16; Dan.11:36; 7:25; Rev.11:2; Dan.8:11,14) until Michael "stands up" in behalf of his people. (Dan.12:1; Rev.3:5; 1Pet.2:10,9) (Gen.3:15; Rev.12:17,7,11; 17:14; 19:11,14,8; 6:9,11; Mark8:35)

"White Robe" / A Heavenly "Garment"

A QUESTION RECEIVED
Dear Pearl,
I am a sponge when reading your new posts; I can't thank you enough for such wonderful food. I have a question that has come up on a forum about Hebrews 1:10-12 Psalms 102:25-27. I know that white robes and fine linen represent righteous acts as in Rev 19:8, Rev 3:18, and Rev 22:14, 7:14 speaks of washing their robes. Is there some connection here with those scriptures and to the robe and garment mentioned in verse 12 of Hebrews 1? (Heb.1:12) With the garment being changed does that not signify the washing of the robe by those chosen ones who also may also be signified by the heavens in verse 10? (Heb.1:10)

Boy, do I hope this makes sense. I pray you are doing okay today, as always. Thank you.
-----------------------------------

MY REPLY
It is true that the white, washed robe, is by means of righteous acts (Rev.19:8). But this one verse does not provide the Bible's entire explanation by which a white robe is attained, nor does Rev.19:8 define what acts are considered righteous.
To acquire this symbolic white robe (Isa.1:18; Heb.8:12), the blood of Christ also needs to be applied to us (Rev.7:14). We also need cleansing by means of God's spirit (1Cor.6:11) and by His Word (Eph.5:25,26,27; John15:3), and then persist in worshiping God according to both (John4:24; 17:17).
Here are two links that contain many related scriptures, to help clarify the requirements for the symbolic white robe:
http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/08/what-is-white-robe.html

http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/08/sanctified-justified-declared-righteous.html

I apologize for all the additional information that follows. It may seem to be unrelated to your question, but it is related, and should be covered. Spirit previously prompted me to write about the "white robe". When I then receive a related question, it confirms to me that I must prioritize that information. So although I will get to speak about the heavens being as a garment, it will help to first explain the Bible's meaning of garment, and of the "white robe".
I will have to post this in pieces. As I work through this, I may add more sections. The ones that are now completed as written below, are in bold. As I complete another section, it also will become bold. So if you check this list as it changes over to bold, that will inform you that another section is finished below.

*White Robe -- from whom?
*White Robe -- a personal victory
*Dressed in White or Scarlet?
       -- Garment spotted by the Flesh
*Our Inner and Outer Garment --
        -- The inside and outside of the Cup
*Collective Garment of the "Bride" / "Harlot" / Ruling army of the "Heavens"
*A "Seamless" Garment
*"Worn Out" and "Eaten by Moths"
*A Golden Sash
*Cover your Nakedness!
*A Blue Cord that Heals by Touch
*A New Heavens

White Robe --- received from whom?

While belonging to the WT, the leading teachers over it would have us believe that the only requirement for a white robe, is to be in good standing within that Organization.... following it's recommendations, arrangements, and expectations. In a sense, this assumes that the leading teachers can dispense a white robe, through submission to them. In this way, The Bible's own required "righteous acts", have been overruled.
As we will see, a white robe is attained by each individual, through persecution and suffering which Satanic testing brings. A steward cannot shield other slaves from such testing, even if that steward slave was faithful (Ps.49:7; Matt.25:8; Prov.10:2). Each slave will prove their own work (Gal.6:4,5; 2Cor.5:10; 1Cor.12:27), and stand before the Master for his inspection.
It is false to assert that subjection to the so called "faithful slave" steward, saves all anointed in subjection to them (Eph.5:6,7,9,10,11,17; Gal.2:4). We subject ourselves to God (James4:7), through His arrangement of the Body under Christ's Headship (Eph.5:21,23,30; 1Cor.12:18,14,27,28,29,30; Eph.4:11,12; 2:20; 3:5; 1Cor.3:10).
Such an assertion, fails to discern the "body", as it is arranged by God (1Cor.11:29,31; 12:18; Eph.4:12). It defies the role, position, and purpose of Christ (Eph.1:22); as well as the need for each called one, to prove their own faithfulness and performance of godly deeds (Rev.3:2,3), according to God's will and role for them as individuals. (1Cor.12:18,28,29; Rom.12:6,7,8; Gal.6:4; 2Pet.1:10; 3:14; Matt.24:24,25; 2Pet.3:17; Matt.22:14)

We are told that each of the invited, will be tested as Christ was, to the limit of what each one can bear, up to and including "death". Satan has demanded it (Job2:4; 1:22; 2:3; Luke22:31; John16:33; Phil.4:13).
Satan is able to personalize the testing gamut, with whatever our individual weakness or wrong desire.
No one can do this for us, excuse us, exempt us, or award us.
We may only have our own sins forgiven, if we exert faith and do what is right.
But we cannot do this for others; nor can anyone else, do it for us.
Psalm 49:7 reads;
"No one can ever redeem his brother or give God a ransom for him".
Only God, through Christ, can save us (Isa.43:11; Rev.7:10).

In speaking of Jesus, Rom.4:12 reads;
"And there is salvation in no one else;
for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved."
While attaining salvation, we each must carry our own load (Gal.6:5; Rev.3:2,1).

We each must give an account to God, for our own choices, with no one to take the blame or credit for us.
Eze.18:20 reads;
"The righteousness of the righteous will be credited to them, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against them."
and Rom.14:12;
"So then each of us will give an account for himself, to God."

This also makes evident, that we cannot blame our neglect on another, simply because we chose to submit to them instead of to Christ (Gen.3:12,17; Jer.31:29; Matt.25:25; 15:14). If we are misdirected into disobedience, we have no one to blame but ourselves (Eze.14:10; Jer.23:21,22,14; 5:31; Rev.2:20).

No...from personal experience, I know that Satan tests each Kingdom candidate to the limit, both in degree and in duration. Any concept of a protective umbrella through membership in an organization, is an illusion...a very lethal delusion.
No one can prove faithful for someone else. Only God is entitled to set divine requirements.
No one is authorized to hand out white robes, or divine approval, in place of Christ (Rev.3:4,5; 22:12; 2Cor.5:10).
If we are deluded into thinking we already have a white robe, due to the approval of men; Christ calls us back to reality (Rev.3:17,18,19).
- - - - - - - - - - - -

White Robe = Personal Victory (Rev.3:5)
Invited Ones who prove faithful with all they are assigned (Luke17:7,8,10; 12:35,36; Matt.25:23), provide the very faithfulness that is the basis by which Satan loses his power and authority over all God's creation (Rev.12:10,11; 17:14; Rom.8:19,21; Isa.61:4,3; 2Pet.3:13; Rev.21:5,1,2,3).
Why would Satan grant any individual heir an exemption from persecution based upon their alliance with men? Satan knows that those who are sealed, receive an inheritance which includes Satan's defeat, and the taking of the world, from him.
According to divine legality, Satan is permitted to accuse and cunningly test anyone who has been elected to remove his dominion from him (Rev.12:10; Job1:9,11; Zech.3:1,8; Eph.6:11; 1Pet.5:8,9; 4:12,13; Acts14:22; Luke13:24; 1Thess.3:3; 2Tim.3:12; Rev.1:9)
(Rev.11:15; 17:14; 2:26,27; 3:21).

As each Chosen one faithfully succeeds in attaining their white robe, Satan draws nearer to his demise. As each one fails, Satan buys more time.
No....subjection under a steward is not a free pass. It does not excuse us from our Lord and Master's expectation that we conquer Satan's tests personally, while faithfully accomplishing our own assignment. As Head of the Body, Christ commands and directs the work and load, of each part (John15:16,8) (Eph.5:23; 1Cor.12:27; Matt.11:29; 1Pet.2:21).
For a steward to usurp Christ as Head, and to "kill" his brother in Christ, is wickedness (Mark12:1,2,3,4,5; 1John3:12; Rev.13:15; 11:7) (John13:34; Matt.25:44,45; Rev.1:7).
For the Steward to enforce his stolen authority as Master, by means of strong "Gentile" arms against his brothers in Christ, is a forbidden alliance (Jer.17:5; Dan.11:31,36; Mark13:14; Matt.24:49; Isa.30:1; Rev.13:15; 19:20; Dan.2:43; Rev.17:16),
which was prophesied to occur (Luke21:24; Rev.13:10; 11:2; Dan.8:24,25,11; 2Thess.2:4; Isa.37:23; Rev.13:5,6,7).
Additionally,
each Called One must endure faithfully "to the end" of their life, or the end of this age (Mark13:13,8) (pearl-sign.blogspot.com).
I hope by this section, I have shown that the Watchtower's requirement for Called ones, is not the same standard as God's requirement (Rev.6:9,11). Therefore, attaining the "white robe" requires the approval of God, not of men (Rom.2:29; Gal.1:10; Col.3:24).

The Beast "was, is not, and yet is"

Rev.17:8

Additions to "Fact #5", in Satan's Throne
as follows:

Fact #5. Satan is using all the nations under his worldly power, to "bruise" the woman's seed. 

How is Satan using his dominion over the Nations to harm the anointed today? 
History has shown Satan, that outright physical persecution has not thwarted the faith and faithfulness of God's faithful slaves. Remember, he needs a stealth deception to ensnare them. How else can he use the worldly powers under his control?
He is maneuvering current events and developments to fabricate a counterfeit fulfillment of prophecy. Why? So that the "Woman's seed" does not perceive the spiritual interpretation, which will equip them to contend with the real threats they now face.
Rev. 17:8 (CLICK on to read entire verse) tells us, that when this Beast of persecution re-emerges, it's new disguise causes it to go unrecognized. 
It seems to not exist anymore against the Chosen, Yet, it does.
Satan's deceptive power goes beyond the physical. This means he can do more than cause the physical distractions which deceive and kill. At Eph.6:12, it also called the woman's foes, "rulers of the darkness of this age". This is not a physical darkness, but a spiritual one. Yes...Satan also rules the spiritual climate of this world. He has spiritual power and influence. This too he uses against the woman's seed. He can bruise the seed with spiritual assault as well (Rev.12:15; 8:11). He rules the "darkness". Darkness is the opposite of the light. Light is truth. Darkness is deception. (John3:21; 14:6; 8:12; 1:5; Psalm43:3; 1John1:6) 
It is Satan's goal to cause irreversible spiritual damage to prospective members of the woman's seed.  Physical damage is of no use (Rom.14:8; Mark8:35; Matt.10:28). As long as the Chosen belong to God and hold fast to their testimony; they contribute to Satan's fall (Rev.12:10,11; Rev.2:25; 3:11; 12:17).
Satan can only succeed in subjecting the Chosen Seed to him, if he does it through religious deception, baited with a few truths (Jer.16:14,15,16,17,18; Hosea9:7,8; 5:1; Ps.124:7; 25:15; Ec.9:12; Matt.13:47; Eze.13:21; Jer.31:11,12; Isa.48:20; Rev.18:4). 


Satan is "the angel of light" (2Cor.11:14). Those who in the end, do prove themselves to be the "woman's seed", will have triumphed over Satan's deceptive darkness (although having been bruised/trampled/thrown down -Rev.12:4; Zech.13:9). Only God can redeem them from this Great Tribulation at Satan's hand (Matt.19:25,26; 24:22; Rev.7:10; Jer.31:11; Ps.18:17).
For each one Satan is able to deceive with his final stealth attack, he can throw down from their heavenly position, swallow, and destroy. For every Chosen One who falls, and fails to remain standing before the throne of God; Satan has bought time for his worldly dominion to continue.

The most significant and relevant location of Satan's throne, is where his power sits over Jehovah's anointed ones. This is not a political or geographical place, but a religious "city" 
(Rev.2:13; 17:18).
This is where Satan rules above the "kings of the earth", who should belong to Jesus 
Rev.17:18; 9:11
(Rev.1:5; 5:10).

Satan's "tail" hurls down "one third" of the "stars"

UPDATE TOhttp://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/06/i-have-found-typing-mistakes-below-and.html

AS FOLLOWS:
(Still checking for typing errors in the scriptures.)
 (Rev.12:4)
"If our perceptions (eye) are bad (based upon false doctrine rather than Christ's words -Matt.15:9; 7:26,27; 25:9,10; Rev.13:17); our understandings and faith are darkness (John3:20) and "the light that is in you is darkness" (Your teachings are sourced in Satan's abyss -James3:15; Rev.16:13; 2:9,24) and "how great is that darkness" (Matt.6:23)...yes...because Satan is a Master at blinding deception, and he will afford every false sign and powerful portent to such a fallen, unfaithful, Great Lamp of Darkness (John8:44; 2Thess.2:9; Rev.12:9; 8:10,11; 9:1,2,3,11; Matt.24:5,24; Rev.13:11; 12:17; 2:20,5; 18:23; 3:17,18; Luke8:18) and her helpers (2Thess.2:4,9; Rev.9:1,2,3; 13:11,15,7) in order to mislead the invited anointed. We must never replace the light of Christ (John8:12; 1John1:7; John12:35) with slavery to men (Gal.1:10; 1Cor.7:23; Rev.2:20; 13:15,8) and their dark doctrines....even if they are a genuine star/lamp (Rev.8:10,11; 9:1). We must "test out" the light in their lamp to see if it is genuinely from Christ's light (1John4:1; 2Cor.13:5; 1Tim.4:1; 2Thess.2:1,2,3).
       (pearl-prophecycease.blogspot.com)
If we are Chosen Ones who submit to such a dark steward,
then we too are fallen stars (2Cor.11:3; 2Pet.3:17; Rev.2:5). In fact, such mislead ones are the "third" of the stars that Satan's "tail"* (*the least of his minions -Deut.28:13) is able to cast down to the earth and cause to be trampled by them (Rev.12:4; 9:10,19; 11:2; 13:7).
Know this!......
This "third" of heaven's stars, are allowed to be cast down and trampled by Satan's power....not because they are sealed as wicked...but because God is allowing them to be disciplined and refined (Zech.13:9; Rev.3:19,18; Mal.3:1,2,3; Isa.48:10; 54:6,7,8; Jer.30:18; Hosea3:5; Rev.6:8; Eze.14:21,22,23)
Ironically...their being persecuted, trampled, "killed", and cast down and out of the wicked City, is so that they can survive [Isa.57:1; Micah7:2; Rev.18:4; Luke21:20,21,22; Isa.10:22; Ps.71:20,21; Micah7:8,9,10; (Rev.11:12; 1:7); Ps.66:10,11,12] (Eze.7:1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8; Rev.14:19; 18:4).
Yet in order for this discipline to have a saving conclusion for this "third", they must, after being subjugated, stand up for truth despite the seeming threat to their lives. (Rev.3:2; Matt.25:7; Isa.60:1; Rev.12:10,11)

The fallen star of Rev.8:10,11 and Rev.9:1, is given the key to Satan's abyss of darkness and death, by it's king (Rev.9:11; John10:10; Isa.33:1; Heb.2:14).

We are now in the period of time, when testing our faith is vital. We are in a period of testing tribulation. If our house of faith is built on the sands of untruth, it will fall (Matt.7:26,27,24,25; Eph.4:14; James1:6). In godly fear we beg our heavenly Father for protection through this test of our beliefs and faith, that we do not end in failure (Luke22:31; Matt.6:13; Phil.2:12; Rev.6:17; Jer.30:7; Joel2:1; Zeph.1:14; Luke21:36; Rev.3:10; Eph.6:18), praying for all the remnant, that as many as possible can awaken, be cleansed and refined, be "killed"...proving their unwavering love for truth, and become sealed. The sooner that happens, the sooner the 144000 can be completed, and the end can arrive (Rev.6:9,10,11; 13:15; 11:7; 12:10,11)!"

Who says, "I am the Christ."?

This information was already posted at the end of a post about a different subject. I decided to post it on it's own with additions, so that it has it's own heading.
------------------------------------

Jesus told those to be the last  remnant of his Chosen brothers...
"See to it  that no one misleads you . For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many." (Matt.24:4,5) (Mark13:21)

"Christ":
Christ is the English term for the Greek Χριστός (Khristós) meaning "the anointed". 
When the Hebrew scriptures were translated into a Greek version called the Septuagint; Khristós was used to translate the Hebrew מָשִׁיחַ (Mašíaḥ,) (Messiah), meaning "[one who is] anointed with holy anointing oil."
Christos is the Greek translation of the Hebrew word Mashiach (now customarily rendered in English as "Messiah"), which means "one who is anointed." 
The faithful slaves of Christ's body, would be included as Christs (Zech.4:14; 2Cor.1:21; 1John2:20,27), or, Messiahs.
These can prove faithful and true "wheat", or unfaithful and false "weeds".

For us to understand the prophecy at Matt.24:5, we need to understand a modern translation of this foretold claim.
To claim to be the "Christ", is by definition, also to
claim to be the faithful and true "anointed" and Chosen of God. 
This is the modern equivalent of claiming to be the anointed "faithful and discreet slave" that Jesus referred to at Matt.24:45. If someone asserts and promotes this exact claim about themselves; they fulfill this prophecy. Jesus tells us not to believe them (Mark13:21; 1John4:1).
Does the presence of such an presumptious "Christ", mean that a genuine faithful and discreet slave does not exist?
No. 
Such a slave is  appointed by Christ, to provide spiritual provisions (Matt.24:45; 7:17,19; John15:8). But the true faithful anointed, would not declare themselves to be such (Luke17:10), because they realize such labels are for their master alone to bestow (Matt.25:23; Rev.2:17; 3:5,12) and that before any receive it, they must endure to the end (Matt.24:13; 10:22; Gal.6:9; James5:8). They would not dare assume their approved standing and it's reward, prematurely (1Cor.10:12; Isa.47:8,9,7; Rev.18:7,8; Luke12:19,20,21) (Matt.25:23; Rev.22:12; 2Thess.1:7) (Matt.16:27; 1Cor.11:26).
Jesus asks us all  to contemplate his question... "Who really  is?" (Matt.24:45)
It would obviously not  be the ones touting the claim...
             (and enforcing it with persecution by an army of Gentile "elders" 
              -Rev.9:3; 13:15
               (Matt.24:49; Jer.13:13,21; Rev.17:11,16) 
          (Jer.17:5; Zech.4:6,14)
...but rather, the ones really providing the proper food (scriptural truth) at the proper time (alert and awake as to the hour of need, holding fast their testimony of Jesus (Matt.24:45,46; Luke12:37,36,35; Matt.5:14; Rev.12:17; 2:25). 

  The FDS would also be those who provide the spiritual food according to the method  Jesus indicated.
What method is that?
Rather than being clearly announced, extolled, and possessing an established place (Matt.24:23; Luke21:8; Matt.24:26);
as Christ's representatives (2Cor.5:20; 13:3; Rom.15:17,18; Luke12:3; Matt.10:27,20), they would simply be "flashing" "light" around the globe (Matt.24:26,27,28; 5:14; John8:12). 
"Eagles" would have to use their keen discernment to search out these "slain ones"/"carcass" (Mark8:35; Rev.6:9,11; 12:11; Matt.24:28; Rev.12:14,6; 11:3,8). 
They would be recognized by their true/fine fruit....not by a menacing self-proclamation. (Matt.7:20; Mal.3:18)

The true "light"/"food" would be sourced in the true vine (John15:4,5), and this light of truth would be a manifestation of Christ himself, unified with his faithful cloud (Mark13:26; Heb.12:1; Rev.1:7; Jude1:14; Rev.19:14,8; Matt.25:31; Heb.2:5,16) (John16:13,14; 14:26; Rev.11:3; Matt.10:27; Luke12:12; 21:15) (1Cor.6:17; 1Cor.2:10; Matt.10:27,26; John14:21,6; Rev.22:16; 2:28; Luke1:78; 2Pet.1:19).

That end-time light/fruit of Christ through his faithful, would contain some specific elements, including:

---the exposing of the "Man of Lawlessness" (2Thess.2:8; Rev.3:9) by these last anointed (Rev.11:5; Jer.5:14; Isa.24:6); 

---previous awakening and repentance by the faithful (Rev.3:19; 11:3; Joel1:13; Luke21:36; Mal.3:2,3; Micah7:9; Rev.3:2,17; Matt.25:5,6,7; Eph.5:14; Rev.3:18; Mal.3:3);

---condemnation of the apostate empire
(Rev.8:8; Zech.4:7; Mark11:23; Rev.2:26,27; 17:14; 19:11,14,8) 
through a war between truth and lies that continues until the End
(1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13,14,15,16; 2Cor.10:4,5; Rom.12:2,1; 2Cor.6:7; 10:4; Jer.1:10; 2Cor.10:8; 13:10; 10:5; Dan.9:25,26; Isa.9:21,12); 

---and a symbolic "death" for truth's sake (John16:2; Matt.25:40; Dan.9:26; Rev.6:9,11; 11:7,8; Matt.24:28; Rev.12:11,14; 20:4)].

The genuine faithful anointed slaves of God, do not need to blow a trumpet to announce who they are, or draw people to where they are located [through the slave labor of millions of "publishers" / door to door preachers. Such "witnesses" draw people into subjection to an organization... not into God's authentic Temple. (1Pet.2:5,9; 1Cor.3:16; Eph.2:20-22)]. 
The faithful simply need to obey the Master, by producing fruit to feed his sheep (John15:16,8; Luke12:35; John21:17; Eze.36:8; 17:23).
Jesus Christ and all the genuine and sealed Chosen "Christs" (anointed) of Jesus' "Body",
would simply be "One" with the essence of the light they shine, as the vessels of it 
(John14:17; 1Thess.5:5; 2Cor.4:7; Luke1:78; 2Pet.1:19; Rev.22:16; 2Cor.4:6; Rev.2:27,28,29). 

The Christ/anointed who truly possess this holy oil of God's spirit (Matt.25:4; 13:12), would be manifested by shining true light, devoid of an established religious affiliation, dominion of tyrannical governance, hierarchy and spiritual commerce   (1John2:15; John17:16; 6:15; 18:36)...
They would not become manifested by claims, prominence, stature, physical holdings, worldly acclaim and accomplishments, honor by men, nor by their impressive surroundings and established location.  
(Luke 9:58; 1John 2:16,15; Hebrews 10:34; Rev. 2:9; Matt.6:19; Luke 12:20; Rev.18:14,19)
(1Cor.4:13; 1:25,27,28,29; Heb.13:13)
(Matt.24:1,2; John4:21,23 --http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/01/imagine-yourself-back-in-first-century.html)

When we see these impressive physical things, Jesus tells us, "Do not believe it!"...
"For as lightening comes from eastern parts, and shines over to western parts; So the presence of the Son of Man will be". 
...And so the presence of the genuine Anointed "Sons of Oil" will also be (Zech.4:14; Rev.11:4; Matt.10:40) as they serve him (Col.3:24; John1:51; Rom.8:9; 2Cor.5:17) with the same spiritual glory he emitted (Rom.8:17; John1:14). 

They are together with Christ, in spirit (1Cor.6:17; Matt.28:20) with their appearing bridegroom (John17:23,24; 14:20; 15:5; 6:56; Matt.25:6,10,13; 2Cor.11:2; Eph.5:27; John14:3; 12:26; 2Thess.1:7,10)(Isa.58:10; Ps.37:6; 97:11; Isa.58:10; 1Cor.3:13) 
and enter the marriage feast with him, (Luke 12:37; Rev. 3:20; 19:9)
along with all those who wish to attend and partake of the spiritual provisions 
[Matt.22:2,8,9,10; 
        (Dan.7:13; Rev.5:1,5,7; John15:15;
          Rev.1:1; Matt.10:27; John21:17; 
          Matt.5:14; 1Cor.4:1; John7:38)
Rev.19:9; 22:17; 5:5; 10:2,7,8,11; 20:12; Rev.3:20).

"Who really is the faithful 
and wise slaves ("Christs"/anointed)?"? (Matt.24:45)
"By their fruits you will  recognize them."...both the fine,
 and the rotten (Matt.7:20; Mal.3:18).

Jesus identified two options before his Chosen slaves....
faithful/wise, and wicked/abusive/drunk/asleep.


Our lives depend upon identifying and distinguishing between the two, and whose provisions we will accept and obey. 
(Rom.6:16; 2Cor.13:3; 4:1,2; 1Cor.4:1,2; 1John4:1; 1Thess.5:21; Mark 13:37; Matt.7:15,20,24,26; Rev.13:11,8)
