" Michael "

DONE Editing

A QUESTION:
If it is true that ‘Michael’ is Jesus’ new name (the covenant new name) given after he conquered and his approval by God ; and if it is also true that it was kept secret until then, why is this name (Michael) revealed in identifying the angelic prince that came to the aid of the angel watching over Daniel (Daniel 10:13)?

MY REPLY:


What do you mean by, "the covenant new name"?
Do you have scriptures which direct that Christ's new name is given in association to an inaugeration of a covenant?
God's covenant with Christ for a kingdom (Luke22:29), has no direct bearing on the timing of his receiving the "new name", because he was a king, and Lord of the Sabbath Day ("Thousand Years"), as the man, Jesus Christ (Matt.21:4,5,10,11; 12:8; John18:37) (Deut.5:12; 2Pet.3:8; Matt.12:8; Rev.20:6; Heb.4:9). 
"Michael's" (meaning "Who is like God?") role is for warfare, and is against those who ask, "Who is like the Beast?" (Rev.13:4).
Jesus' "new name" is not about Christ's "conquering and receiving approval by God". 
He already did both, in the first century (John16:33; 1John5:4; Matt.3:17; 17:5; Isa.42:1).

Michael's name, is about his battling the authority of the Beast, which has replaced him as head of the anointed congregation (2Thess.2:4; Rev.13:7; Dan.8:11,25; 11:36) (Acts3:20,21; 2Thess.1:6-10; Dan.12:1). He must stand up against the demon inspired expressions which extol the Beast as worthy of worship (Rev.16:13-16; 13:15,8; 1Tim.4:1), when that Beast and it's image/idol, take a stand against the Prince of princes and "tramples" his fellow Kingdom heirs, God's Temple (Dan.8:11,24,25; 11:31,36; 2Thess.2:4; Rev.13:7,10; 11:2) (http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2015/05/salt.html). 

"Michael" must re-establish God's sovereignty and His Kingdom purpose... His Temple, and Holy City, as supreme. 
This he does, with his armies of heaven (Rev.17:14; 19:11,14,8; 12:17,11,7; Matt.25:31; Jude1:14) (Rev.2:26,27; 2Cor.10:3-5; Eph.2:6; Heb.12:22,23; Rev.19:14) (1Pet.5:8,9).
("God's 'Angels'")

When you say that Christ's new name is kept secret until then, it sounds as if you are assuming that this name is merely made audible to all, when revealed. 
But these things are not physical, but spiritual.
Unless Christ shows himself to us (John14:21; Rev.2:7,17,28), by giving us who he is (John14:6)...
         the hidden manna (John6:49,48,50)... 
         the morning star 
         (Rev.22:16; 2:28; 2Pet.1:19; 1John3:2; Rom.8:9)... 
         and the tree of life (Rev.2:7; John6:63) 
         [Our teaching words are our "fruit" (Luke6:43,45)]
we will not see or hear, even after others do understand (Rev.3:7,8; 4:1; Luke24:45).

Only those to whom Christ's new name is also given, come to know it (Rev.3:12; 2:17).

To have one's name "revealed" is to have it understood, not just physically heard.
The full meaning of Michael's name (and why it would become necessary), was NOT revealed in the time of Daniel.
All the things that Daniel was shown, were sealed up until the time of the end (Dan.12:4),
which is why the last book of the Bible, is called "Revelation". It's unveiling occurs when the spirit of truth arrives, to reveal the final sacred secrets of God, through God's prophetic messenger (John16:13; Rev.1:1; 22:6,16).

However, Michael IS mentioned in the book of Daniel. You cite, Dan.10:13.
If you simply look at the context, you will learn that Daniel was experiencing a prophetic vision...
Dan.10:
5 I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, there was a certain man dressed in linen, whose waist was girded with a belt of pure gold of Uphaz. 6 His body also was like beryl, his face had the appearance of lightning, his eyes were like flaming torches, his arms and feet like the gleam of polished bronze, and the sound of his words like the sound of a tumult. 7 Now I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, while the men who were with me did not see the vision; nevertheless, a great dread fell on them, and they ran away to hide themselves. 8 So I was left alone and saw this great vision; yet no strength was left in me, for my natural color turned to a deathly pallor, and I retained no strength. 9 But I heard the sound of his words; and as soon as I heard the sound of his words, I fell into a deep sleep on my face, with my face to the ground.
10 Then behold, a hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees. 11 He said to me, “O Daniel, man of high esteem, understand the words that I am about to tell you and stand upright, for I have now been sent to you.” And when he had spoken this word to me, I stood up trembling. 12 Then he said to me, “Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was withstanding me for twenty-one days; then behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia. 14 Now I have come to give you an understanding of what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision pertains to the days yet future.

We may assume that some of the vision and it's meaning is about the latter days, and some of the vision and it's meaning only occurred in Daniel's day. This is not so.
When are God's angels restrained from providing understanding about the time of the end?
When is Daniel (along with Abraham, Issac and Jacob) 
given understanding into the things all the prophets desired to understand? 
(1Pet.1:10; Matt.13:17; Heb.11:13; Luke13:28,29) (Dan.12:4,9; Rev.5:2,5; John15:15; Rev.1:1; 22:6,16)
Who is the angel sent by Christ to reveal these things to Daniel, and to us, 
at the Table in the kingdom of God, served at the great supper of the Lamb and his Bride?
Can you even consider that the angel in vision, speaking with Daniel, is the one sent to provide understanding of future events, and is the same angel of Rev.1:1 and Rev.22:6?

To illustrate how an ancient Bible character can see and speak of things in the present,
and yet those things are far in the future, please consider Ps.110:1
"Of David. A psalm. The LORD says to my lord: "Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet."
David speaks of God speaking to David's lord, who I assume you agree is referring to Christ (who was not yet born as a king). When did Jesus begin to sit at the right hand of God to share God's throne, and initiate the subjugating of his enemies?

"You have said so," Jesus replied. "But I say to all of you: From now on you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven." (Matt.26:64) (Heb.12:1; Jude1:14)
"To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne." (Rev.3:21)
"The LORD will stretch forth Your strong (iron) scepter from Zion, saying, "Rule in the midst of Your enemies." (Ps.110:2) (Rev.2:26,27; 12:5; Eph.2:6)
"I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you." (Luke10:19)
"Then I looked, and behold, the Lamb was standing on Mount Zion (Ps.110:2; Rev.5:10), and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His name and the name of His Father written on their foreheads." (Rev.14:1)
You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth.” (Rev.5:10)

Although David speaks of some thing he presently sees, it is for a future time.
When we are in vision and we hear and see things due to the education by God's spirit,
nothing should be taken literally. Such things are eventually understood when Jesus "opens that no one can shut". Literal timing has nothing to do with such lessons.
If you are open to learning more about the mounting scriptural evidence which connects "Michael" to the returned Christ; I believe you will discern a growning connection between them, until they eclipse.
Gen.3:15 makes clear who rightfully battles, at Rev.12:7. 
(Gal.3:16,29; Eph.6:12; Rom.16:20; 1John3:8; Heb.2:14)

---------------ADDITION---------------
(based upon a question left in the "comments" at the base of this post.)

QUESTION:

"does the Bible shed light on how many Chief Princes are there and who they are as stated in Daniel 10:13 Michael, one of the chief princes"

MY REPLY:

Yes, the Bible sheds light on how many Chief Princes there are,
who these chief princes are, and who all the princes are, among whom there are chief princes.
Accordingly, I will answer your question in three parts.
1. Who are all the "princes"?
2. Who are the "chief princes" among all these princes?
3. Who is The "Great Prince" ("arch-angel") mentioned at Dan.12:1?
    (Jude1:9; Dan.10:21; 8:25; Acts 3:15)
    (Jude1:9 -- "Moses" -Deut.18:15,18; Heb.3:5; Matt.16:28; 17:1-3,5; 2Pet.1:18; Rev.14:1)
-  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -

1. Who are the Bible's princes?

I will limit my reply to the princes of God's covenant woman, and not include the princes of Satan's covenant of death
(Eph.2:2; Isa.31:9; Eze.21:25; 22:27; 38:3; Dan.9:26; 10:20; Zeph.3:3; Rev.18:23; 9:7).


The princes under the Great "guardian" Prince/Rescuer, (Dan.12:1; Isa.49:24-25; Matt.12:29; Rev.20:1-2; Luke10:19), who is Christ,
     (Isa.9:6; Dan.9:25; 12:1; John17:12; 6:39; 10:28; Matt.28:20),
are the kings under the great king (Rev.19:16; 1:5; 5:9,10; Eph.1:22; Col.1:13).

They are also considered by God, Christ's sons, because by means of Christ, they receive spirit life (John10:10; 20:22; 6:63; 5:21; 17:2; Rom.8:9,10,11,13; 1John4:9,13; 5:11-12; 2:25; John3:6,15,36; 6:47,48,51,57,63; 10:28; Heb.5:9). "But", you may protest, "don't we all become 'sons of God'?". Yes. But there is more to it.---

Within the Bible, forefathers are multiple. This tradition is a cultural difference from most modern day societies. 
Please let me explain...
Within the Bible, living faithful can have more than one father... both God and Christ (Isa.9:6).  Christ received his life from God first, before he can pass that incorruptible seed to those after him (1Pet.1:23; Luke8:11; John12:49; 6:63; James1:21).
"Grandfather" is not in the Bible's language. This is why Abraham, David, Jacob, etc., are considered "fathers" of many subsequent generations. 
All the generations of their descendants, have all of these as "fathers"
(Zech.1:2,4-6; Acts3:13; 7:19; John8:39; Ex.3:6; Luke1:32; Matt.1:1), regardless of how many generations may come and go in between.

Accordingly, we should not limit the spiritual lineage of those born of spirit, to either God or Christ as "father". Such ones are sons of both. You may have noticed that within the scriptures, our spiritual fathers are the ones whom we imitate (John8:39,44; Eph.5:1; 1Pet.1:16; Matt.5:44,45,48).  We can therefore, also be sons of Christ (1Pet.2:21) and of the sealed faithful (1Cor.11:1; 4:15,14,16,17; 1John2:13,14; Philemon 1:10; Luke1:17; Phil.2:22; 3:17; 1Thess.2:11; 1:6) (Mal.4:5-6).

Hopefully, all these previous scriptures have helped to establish within your understanding, that whoever we imitate and do the will of, becomes our spiritual father (Eph.5:1; Matt.12:50; 7:21; 1John2:17; Rom.8:14) -- (Eph.2:2; John8:44). 
If you do grasp that imitating Christ (1Cor.11:1; 1Pet.2:21) can make us his son, it will then be easier to grasp who the "princes" are. 

First, lets look at Ps.45:16, which speaks of the dominion of Christ.

"In place of your fathers will be your sons;
You shall make them princes in all the earth."

In place of Christ's kingly forefathers (Luke1:32; Isa.9:7; Matt.12:42), will come his spiritual sons (Heb.2:1-9,14,13,16; Isa.8:18; John10:28,29; 6:37-39; 17:2; 1Pet.1:5; Matt.18:3; 19:14), with whom he shares his kingdom (Ps.132:12; 110:2; Rev.14:1; Jer.17:25; Eze.37:25; 34:24) (Heb.2:5,16; Rom.4:13; Gal.3:29; Gen.28:13,14; 13:14,15).
They become co-kings (2Tim.2:12; Rev.5:9,10; 20:6) and co-princes (Isa.10:8; 9:6; Acts3:15; 5:31; Isa.32:1,2).
As heirs of the earth, these will heal creation (Rom.8:19; Rev.22:1,2; 21:2-5; Jer.17:7,8; Matt.7:20; Eze.36:8), and also provide a "fatherly" example, that leads to life (1Cor.4:15-17; Phil.3:17; 4:9; 2Thess.3:9; 1Thess.1:6; 2Tim.3:14,15; Heb.13:7; 1Pet.5:3).
From the foregoing reply to the first question...
"Who are all the princes?";
I hope you now perceive, that all those redeemed from death by Christ (Rev.5:9,10; 1Cor.15:54-55; Acts20:28) which "church" is the chosen saints of God's household (1Tim.3:15; 1Cor.14:33; 1Pet.2:10,9), are given fatherly life by Christ's blood...
       (through the new mother covenant of promise/sealed Bride
           -Gal.4:26,24; Matt.26:28; Rom.9:8; Rev.12:2; Gal.4:19; Eph.4:13; 1Thess.2:7; 3John1:4
...These are his "sons", referred to as "princes" at Psalm 45:16.
As such, they become "heirs of the earth" 
(Rom.4:13; Gal.3:29; Heb.2:5,16; Matt.5:5; Psalm.37:11,22,29)
and are, 
"all the princes".

Who are "God's People"?


*SEE COMMENTS at the end of post.

A QUESTION:

"I want to ask you something with regards to the Bible students if I may.
Do not the Bible students come within the same or similar category as Jehovah's witnesses as Jw's beliefs were originally based of what Russell taught which as you know the Bible students still implement / endorse & practice these teachings to this day. When Rutherford took over the movement he changed much of the structure of what the witnesses orignally believed in. 
So, would not the Bible students be classed as God's people, as well, along with Jehovah's witnesses?"

MY REPLY:


As a whole... neither "Bible Students" nor "Jehovah's Witnesses", are God's people.
How can I say such a thing?
Well, who is the only one who rightfully determines and designates the people of God? Is it not God Himself?
Remember who God Himself calls his people?
Hebrews8:10 reads;
"But this is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel on that day, says the LORD: I will put my laws in their minds, and I will write them on their heartsI will be their God, and they will be my people."
These are those whom Jesus characterized, as those who worship according to spirit and truth [God's Laws in heart (by spirit) (Rom.5:5; 2:29; Col.2:11) and mind (by truth) (Rom.12:2; John 17:17)] (John 4:23-24).

Do you remember how this is symbolized, when a people have God's laws written on their hearts and minds?
Remember Deut.6:6,8?
"These laws that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads."
God told those who were His genuine people...
"Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads." (Deut.11:18)

Revelation is symbolic, because it reveals the spirit realm in physical symbolism, so that we who are physical, can perceive spiritual realities... IF we are granted that perception, by God's spirit
(Matt.13:10,11; 11:25,26,27; 19:11; Luke 8:10; Mark 4:11; 1Cor.2:10,14,12-13; John 6:65; Col.2:2; John 14:21; Isa.29:11; Rev.5:1-2,9; John 15:15; Rev.1:1; 22:16,6; 11:3; John 8:17).

The scroll of Revelation clearly reveals two masters and their slaves..., 
who it is that have the laws of God, written in their minds and hearts;
and who it is that has the laws of the Beast written in their minds and hearts;
because these are depicted with this same symbol
on their forehead. (Rev.7:3)
That symbol would manifest, that God's servants have God's Laws written on their hearts, and that they were God's people, serving as His slaves.

Who are the people referred to, at Heb.8:10? (Deut.11:18)
"Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads."
"They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads." (Rev.22:4)

As you may conclude, God's marked people are His chosen servants/priests. This is confirmed at 1Pet.2:9,10...

"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy."

Can you see that God's people are those in covenant with him, who have had His laws written within their heart and mind, by God Himself?
Can you see that this is symbolized by bearing God's slave-owner's mark, on the hand (deeds) and forehead (mind)? These become obedient slaves of God's Truths, as expressed in His Word, the Bible (John 17:17).

Can you see that the work these slaves render, is to serve as priests, and to declare God's praises/ Truth? (1Pet.2:9 above)

This is why God calls these, His "witnesses"...
You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,
    “and my servant whom I have chosen (1Pet.2:9),
so that you may know and believe me
    and understand that I am he. (Heb.8:10)
Before me no god was formed,
    nor will there be one after me.
these people I formed for myself (Eph.2:10; 1:4; Heb.11:10; Isa.66:1; 1Cor.3:16; 6:19; Eph.2:20-22; Titus 2:14; 2Tim.2:21)
    that they may proclaim my praise."
(Isa.43:10,21)
(1Pet.2:5,9)
Notice that God himself forms this people (Isa.43:21).
What people are those?

"For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works (John 15:8), which God prepared in advance for us to do. Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s holy people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets (Eph.3:4-5; 1Cor.3:10; Rev.1:20), with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit." (Eph.2:10,19-22)

Can you see that the people which God himself forms, combine to form His spiritual Temple?
Again, 1Peter2 confirms that this is God's priesthood...
"you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual temple to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices (of praise), acceptable to God through Jesus Christ." (1Pet.2:5)

Wrongly assumed to be God's people, both "Bible Students" and "Jehovah's Witnesses" are Satan's counterfeit temples/"mountains" (Rev.16:20; Zech.4:7; Rev.8:8), which temples, are made by men 
(Isa.66:1; Acts17:24).
God's spirit does not dwell within such manmade religious organizations. 
(Acts 17:24; John 4:20-24). ("Organized Religion")

God's genuine Temple is spiritual... made by God Himself 
(Isa.43:21; Eph.2:10; Heb.11:10; 1Cor.3:16; John 14:23,2,3; Eph.2:6), 
...in the "heavens" [(Rev.2:26,27) -Rev.12:5; Eph.2:6; Heb.12:22,23; 9:11; Phil.3:20; Rom.8:9].


Satan has devised these counterfeits
       (2Cor.11:3-4,13-15; Rev.13:11,15; 16:13; Matt.24:4,5,24,25) 
       (pearl-666.blogspot.com), 
       (Rev.2:2; 3:9  "What is a 'Jew' / 'Gentile'?")
so that the genuine may be caught in those snares, and be overcome by a new master "father", and different covenant "mother" (1Pet.5:8; Luke 22:31; 2Pet.3:17; Rev.8:10).
Satan and his "bride/mother-covenant/abyss-womb" of deception and death, are physically represented and manifested, through his fallen stewards/wicked slaves/harlots (Rev.17:5) 
   (Prov.23:27; 22:14; 7:21,23,25-27; 5:3-5;     
    1Cor.6:15; Rev.17:2) ("Who are Kings of Earth?"), 
and their counterfeit "temples"/"beasts".
("Is the Wicked Steward, Real?"
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/search?q=harlot+and+her+beast)

Those fallen unfaithful, former priests of God ("'Wheat' or 'Weeds'?") (Isa.1:21; 63:18; 2Pet.3:17; Rev.8:10,11), are those whom Satan puts in charge of his prison/abyss (Rev.9:1) 
  [and it's Gentile spawn 
    (Rev.9:1-3,10; 17:8; 11:2; Isa.51:23; Ps.66:11,12;
        Ps.69:14,2,15; 88:6,17; Eze.26:19; Job 33:22 ) ("'Jew' / 'Gentle'")]..
These are the "seven heads"/kings, of Satan's organizational beast (Rev.17:9,10; 13:1,4), 
after these unfaithful, fail Satan's testing by accepting dominion, position, and power, in this world (Luke 4:5-7; 1John 2:15; Rev.9:1 -Rev.8:10). 
(pearl-revelation9.blogspot.com)
(http://pearl-leviathan.blogspot.com/)
and use it to "beat" their fellow slaves (1John 3:12; 4:20; Luke 12:42,45; Rev.17:6) 
(Rev.13:11,15; 11:7; John 16:2).
These "seven mountains"/"heads"/"kings" (Rev.17:9), are the supporting foundation, upon which the mother-covenant of death (Rev.17:5; Isa.28:15), is able to "sit" (Zech.5:7-8,10-11; Rev.17:3,5).
(pearl-thewoman.blogspot.com)

This is the opposite of the "foundation" ["seven stars-angels" (prophets) and "12 Stones"(apostles)], 
upon which "Jerusalem" above (Gal.4:26), sits (Rev.3:12; 1:20; 22:6) (Rev.21:14) (Eph.2:20). 

The answer to your question, is the central reason why Revelation tells us, that such beasts are "covered with blasphemous names" (Rev.13:1; 17:3).
Do you understand that it is blasphemy, when the wicked steward wrongly claims to be God's faithful slave (Rev.2:2; Matt.7:15; Rev.13:11), or when those not spiritual Jews (Rom.2:28-29; Eze.44:7-9) falsely claim to be God's Temple 
(Rev.2:9; 3:9; 2Chron.13:9; 23:6; Mark 13:14; 2Thess.2:4; Dan.8:11; 
Rev.13:7; 11:2; Jer.7:4)...when in truth, they are an abomination of Satanic deception! 
("Disgusting Thing")
Such Gentile "elders", blaspheme against the genuine saints and priests of heaven (Heb.12:22,23; Eph.2:6; Phil.3:20; Rev.13:6)... "killing" all who refuse to worship and serve their collective "image", as God's "spirit-directed" organization (Rev.13:15).

That "abomination" is successful in destroying the life prospects of God's genuine people (Rev.13:7,8; Matt.24:4-5,24-25,22). That's why Jesus called it, "the abomination causing desolation", "as spoken about by Daniel the prophet" (Matt.24:15; Dan.11:31; 8:13) 
(Jer.12:10-12; Matt.10:34; Rev.2:16; 19:15,19; 16:13-16; 13:10; Isa.63:18; Jer.6:3; Luke 19:43,44; 21:20,24,22; Rev.11:2). 
This is, the "operation of error" / "deluding influence", of 2Thess.2:11 
(2Thess.2:4; Dan.8:11,12; Rev.13:1,4; 2Thess.2:9-12).

So, the scriptures compel us to conclude that as a whole...
neither "Bible Students" nor "Jehovah's Witnesses" are God's genuine people, according to God and His Word.
Instead, the anointed priests now captive within those two counterfeit organizations, are God's people
They have been taken captive, by deceptive reasoning 
(Col.2:8; Rev.13:10; 2Cor.11:2,3,4,13-15,20; Rev.2:20; 2Thess.2:1,2; 
1Tim.4:1; Rev.13:11,15,8; 16:13-16; 17:14; 2Cor.10:3-5; Eph.5:11) and trampled out of their rightful position 
(1Cor.6:2; 4:1; 3:16-17; Rev.5:9,10; Ecc.10:7). 
As a consequence to their subjection to this abomination (2Cor.11:3,20; Rev.2:20; Matt.5:13), they have left their "mother" covenant of life and peace with God 
(and having His laws of truth in their hearts and minds) (Gal.4:24,26; 2Cor.3:6; Heb.8:10),
to come under a different "mother" covenant... 
...the "covenant of death" (Isa.28:15; Rev.17:5) 
(Dan.11:30-31; Isa.24:5; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13-16).
They then have demonic propaganda written on their hearts and minds ("Mark of Beast")
(Rev.13:16,17; Matt.25:9,10; 2Cor.11:2; 1Tim.4:1; 2Tim.4:3). ("'Buying' and 'Selling'")
The name of that "mother" covenant of Death, is "Babylon the Great" (Rev.17:5).
Both "cities"/covenants, have inhabitants (Rev.17:1,5,15,18)
(Ps.46:4; Rev.22:1,2,14; 21:2,10; 11:2; Isa.52:1; 62:12; Dan.9:24) 
(Heb.11:10; 12:22-23; Rev.3:12; Phil.3:20) ("The Holy City")

This change of "mother" covenants has occurred, because these ones have accepted the laws and doctrines of demons, in their hearts and minds 
(Hosea 2:2-4; Rev.2:23,21-22; 18:8; Amos 8:11(1Tim.4:1; 2Chron.18:20-22; Rev.16:13-16; 13:14-15,8,7; Deut.13:1-3). 
This is why the symbolic mark on their forehead, is that of the harlot's "Beast" (2Pet.2:12; Jude 1:10; Rev.13:17,16) rather than of God (Rev.14:1; Deut.6:6,8).

This is why God's messenger cries out;
"‘Come out of her, my people,’ (1Pet.2:9-10)
    so that you will not share in her sins,
    so that you will not receive any of her plagues'" (Rev.18:4)
Those people of God who have been deceived by Satan in his "short period of time"...
          (after his release from the abyss - Rev.20:7,8; 17:14; 16:13-16),
...must get out from under the covenant of death (Isa.28:15), get out of their relationship with "her" Harlot daughters (1Cor.6:15; Rev.2:22; 17:2; 18:9), her army of "locust - scorpions" (Rev.9:7,10,8; Joel 1:6,4; Eze.2:6; Luke 10:19), and their deadly, demonic, wormwood lies (Rev.8:10,11) which lead to death (Rev.9:10; 1Cor.15:55-56).
(tails-stingers-scorpions)

All must return to living waters of truth, through Christ's "virgin" Bride
(Matt.25:10; 22:8-10; Rev.19:9; 21:6; 22:17; John 7:38).

All these truths are basic to understanding the times in which we live, how they are effecting the genuine people of God,
and why Jesus called it, a "Great Tribulation" 
[Amos 9:9; Luke 22:31; Isa.30:28 (Rev.12:15; 14:20)]
 [Eze.5:12; Zech.13:9; Jer.46:28; Mal.3:1-3; Rev.7:14; 2:22,20; Neh.9:37,27; Matt.24:21 -(Joel2:2; Rev.9:2-3,7,9-11); Matt.24:22; Dan.12:1,3]. 
(the-greatest-tribulation/what&why)

Does this mean that only the 144000 can belong to those who worship God in spirit and truth? No. A temple is constructed, so that those who are not the temple, can come there to learn and worship God (Isa.56:7; Mal.2:7; John 21:17; Isa.32:2). Priests serve the people, by providing the truth that God has put inside them, to yet others (Mal.2:7; 1Cor.4:1; 2Cor.5:20; John 13:20; Matt.10:40-41,20; Luke 10:16) 
(Rev.21:6; 22:1,2,17; John 7:38; Isa.43:19; 41:18; Rev.12:14,6; 11:3)
(Rev.22:2; Eze.36:8; Matt.24:16; 7:20).
("Who are the 'Fine Trees'?")

Just as the ancient physical nation of Israel had in their company, proselytes who also desired to worship God in spirit and truth, these priests can have in their company, those who will also gain life, by their association with God's Temple (Zech.8:23; Rom.2:28,29; Isa.14:1; Matt.10:41-42; 25:40,46). (Non-anointed benefits)
Such ones are symbolized, by the "colt" (Matt.21:2), who is with it's "mother" (Gal.4:26; 1Thess.2:7; 1Pet.2:2) (pregnant-woman-and-nursing-mothers). 
(Your king comes to you on donkey and colt") (Rev.2:14; 2Pet.2:15-16; Jude1:11)
Even such as these lowly "donkeys", can carry the manifestation of Christ's arrival (Matt.22:8-10; Rev.22:17).

Salt

DONE editing

UPDATE
This post has been added to
"Is the 'wicked steward' real?"
as follows;

"It is a certainty that the Temple of God (1Cor.3:16; Eph.2:20,21,22) is trampled in the time of the end (Rev.11:2; Dan.12:4,1; Matt.24:9; 10:22; Rev.11:9,10,7; John16:2; Dan.11:33; Rev.13:10)
(Isa.5:5; Jer.12:10; Rev.11:2; 13:7). Why does God allow this to happen?
Jesus tells us why God would subject His own Temple priests (1Pet.2:5,9) to endure this discipline (Mal.2:7-9; 3:1,2,3; Eze.44:10; Rev.13:8; Hosea4:6; Rev.2:23,20; Zech.13:9; Luke21:22).

Matt.5:13 reads;
“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot."
God allows His Temple priests to be trampled, because they have lost their "saltiness" (Num.18:19; 2Chron.13:5; Lev.2:13).
These have abdicated their royal and priestly authority (Luke10:19; Rev.17:17) and have allowed the Beast to remove their continual sacrifice ("constant feature") (Luke10:19; Rev.17:13) as priests and kings, in favor of subjecting themselves to the Image / Idol, of the Wild Beast! (Rev.13:7,8; 2Thess.2:4; Dan.8:11,24,25; 11:31,36; 12:11) (2Cor.11:20; Col.2:8; Rev.13:10,7,8). For these offenses against their God, they must be disciplined and refined! 
They are disciplined, by means of the very gods they have subjected themselves to...
the Gentile (not anointed "Jews" -Rom.2:28,29; Gal.3:29) Wild Beast (Rev.11:2; 13:15,1,4 "from 'sea'" -Isa.57:20) (locust-scorpion collective Rev.9:3,10), 
and the false prophet ("second wild beast" from "earth" -God's people 1Pet.2:9,10/anointed -Jer.25:29,30) (Rev.13:11; 19:20) above it / them."

The sound of the Trumpet

BEGIN WITH:
"The Final Witness"

Rev.14:6-16 is so relevant for us now....
It's meaning and application must be interpreted for "Jehovah's Witnesses", if they are to heed it's warnings.

"6 Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth—to every nation, tribe, language and people. 7 He said in a loud voice, “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.”
(This is addressed with  "Watchtower IDOL is not Jah" and "Jah's Mountain = Zion -- not Watchtower".)

8 A second angel followed and said, “‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great,’ which made all the nations drink the maddening wine of her adulteries.
[This is covered with Gov. Bdy. = Wicked Steward = Harlot  and "Get out MY people" (Rev.18:4)(1Pet.2:10,9)]

9 A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand, 10 they, too, will drink the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.” 
(This is covered by "Watchtower = Wild Beast" )

12 "This calls for patient endurance on the part of the people of God who keep his commands and remain faithful to Jesus."
(This verse adds the knowledge, that we who understand these identities and warnings, must patiently endure in our obedient witnessing and warning of those in captivity, just as Rev.13:10 affirms.)

13 Then I heard a voice from heaven say, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.
[This is very appropriate to mention right here. Why? Because anyone who heeds these previous warnings, is going to be "killed" by the Beast, for discontinuing their worship of it (Rev.13:15; 11:7; 6:9-11)].

“Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.
[those who do act on the warning we give, will enter God's "rest" (Heb.4:9-11; Isa.57:2,1). Their sacrifices will be rewarded (Eph.3:10; 1Pet.1:12; 4:6; Mark.8:35; 2Cor.5:10; Matt.16:27; Eze.18:20)
(Heb.4:6; 3:18; 2Pet.2:6; Rev.11:8)

14 I looked, and there before me was a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was one like a son of man with a crown of gold on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. 15 Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, “Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” 16 So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested."
The final witness will separate the wheat from the weeds. The harvest of wheat will conclude, by means of how each Chosen hearer, responds to these final messages.

The Final Witness

"Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to my people their rebellion and to the descendants of Jacob their sins." (Isa.58:1)

"And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.
Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them." (Rev.8:2,6)

"Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and you must give them warning from me." (Eze.3:17)

"If the trumpet does not sound a clear call, who will get ready for battle?" (1Cor.14:8)

"I appointed watchmen over you and said, 'Listen to the sound of the trumpet!' But you said, 'We will not listen.'" (Jer.6:17)

"You must speak my words to them, whether they listen or fail to listen, for they are rebellious. And whether they listen or fail to listen
--for they are a rebellious people--they will know that a prophet has been among them." (Eze.2:7,5)

(Eze.2:6; Rev.9:3,10)

"'But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet and the people are not warned, and a sword comes and takes a person's life from them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require from the watchman's hand.'" (Eze.33:6)
----------------------------------
“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me," (Ex.20:4,5)

"All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world. People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?” (Rev.13:8,4)

"So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty." (Zech.4:6)
(Dan.8:25; 2:34,35; Eph.2:10; Rev.17:14)

"And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest if not to those who disobeyed?" (Heb.3:18)

"Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to my people their rebellion and to the descendants of Jacob their sins." (Isa.58:1)

"And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.
Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them." (Rev.8:2,6)

"Blow the trumpet in Zion;
    sound the alarm on my holy hill.
Let all who live in the land tremble,
    for the day of the Lord is coming.
It is close at hand" (Joel2:1)
