A QUESTION:
Hello Pearl, I hope you are keeping as well as can be expected.
I have a quick question regarding the Governing Body, they claim to have been given the first appointment - feeding the Christ's sheep, so the second appointment of handing over Christ's belongings that they originally said they were given in 1919 but now say that this is a future event, is not Christ's sheep His belongings/possessions? If so what actually does the second appointment actually consist of?

MY REPLY:

All Christ's Called slaves are given responsibility and assignment during the master's absence (Mark 13:34). These are chosen to make use of Christ's riches, symbolized as "gold" 
(Rev.3:18; John 16:15; 12:49; 1:14; Mark 13:34; Matt.25:14).
Some of those servants of Christ, would faithfully obey and complete the task assigned (Matt.21:28-31) [satisfying the first appointment until the Master returns
(time limited period of a "thousand years"). 
Some would not (Matt.25:24-26,28-30; 24:48-51; Rev.2:4-5,14-16,20; 3:1-3,16-19). Some would repent of their failings (Rev.2:19; 7:14,16-17). Some would not (Rev.2:21; 9:20-21; 16:8-11).
Those tested and found faithful (Rev.17:14; 3:21) during their own lifetimes (with that previous assignment spanning a symbolic "thousand years"), were faithful during a period of difficulty and trial (John 15:20; 16:33; Acts 14:22; 1Thess.3:3; 2Tim.3:12; 1Pet.2:21; Luke 22:31; 1Pet.5:8-9; Rev.2:9-10,2-3; 3:8,10-13; 1:9).
Those who prove victorious despite these sufferings and adversity (Rev.2:7,11,17,25-28; 3:5,11-12,20-21; 2Cor.4:17), will inherit the eternal Kingdom of God, and be priests and kings on earth forever (Dan.7:22; 7:18; Luke 19:16-17) [second appointment].

The Governing Body is mistaken, to think that they are the only priests given a testing assignment by God, to be evaluated by Christ 
(Rev.5:9-10; Eph.4:11,8; Ps.68:18; Eph.2:6; 1Cor.3:16) (Matt.25:14-15)
(1Cor.12:7,12-15,18-22,27-29; Eph.2:20-22; 1Pet.2:5,9-10).
Even if appointed as the steward "star"/doorkeeper/watchman (Mark 13:34; 1Chron.26:12; 9:17-18; 26:16; Eze.43:1; 40:44; Isa.62:6; Mark 13:35; Eze.1:5,18; Rev.4:6,8; Mark 13:35), over the whole present congregation of anointed 
(Luke 12:42; Matt.5:15)(Rev.1:20; 2:1, 8, 12, etc.) (1Cor.4:1-2,4)
the possibility still exists that such a one could prove unfaithful (Luke12:43,45; Matt.24:29; Dan.12:3; Rev.12:4; 2Pet.3:17). Despite Christ's warning, the Governing Body declares this as impossible, and expect their followers to assume the same (Matt.24:4-5,24-25; 1John 4:1; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13-16; 19:20; 13:11,7,10; Luke 21:24; Rev.11:2). Those who do not accept this false assumption, are promptly "beaten" (Luke12:45)... thrown out of the Congregation by their Congregation's "elders" (John 16:2; Rev.11:7,2). 
(Trample... How does it happen?)
(pearl-disgustingthing.blogspot.com)
Even the Son of God did not punish those who rejected him (Matt.5:44; Luke12:10; John 3:17; 12:48; Matt.12:37; Rev.20:12) despite his authority being greater than the Governing Body's 
(Matt.28:18; 1Cor.15:24-25; 2Cor.11:3-5,12-15,20; Rev.2:20).
Jesus said that any priest not producing fruit, "gets cut down and thrown into the fire" 
(Matt.7:19; Matt.21:19; John 15:8). The fruit each chosen one ("tree") produces, does not come from a "governing body", but comes from their own heart (Luke 6:43-45).
Jesus specifically said that the wicked steward would say, "My Master is delaying" (Luke12:42,45). You yourself just stated that they are changing their doctrine from stating that:
Christ gave the GB's of Jehovah's Witnesses their second appointment in 1918-1919 (and he returned back then to reward the religion of his choice, to represent his truth in the time of the end) to a doctrine which asserts:
that his second appointment and return is yet future.
Is that not essentially stating that the Master's arrival has been postponed/"delayed"? 
Jesus identified this specific change in doctrine, as a hallmark of the "wicked steward" (Luke12:45).

Jesus described "the wicked steward" by means of a list of characteristics (Luke 12:45-46,39-40,56; 16:1-2).
That steward would originally have been appointed by Christ himself (Luke 12:42; 1Cor.4:2; Gal.4:1-2; Col.1:25), for the purpose of "feeding" his entire household of chosen and hired servants (Luke 12:42; Heb.3:6; 1Tim.3:15; 1Cor.3:16; 14:33; 1Pet.2:5,9) (Rom.8:29-30; 9:23; John 17:22; 1Cor.2:7; 2Thess.2:14; John10:35; 1:14; 17:22) (Matt.20:1; 21:28-31; 15:24; Rom.9:23-24).
One trait which Jesus ascribed the wicked steward, was that he would realize, "My Master is delaying" (Luke12:45). 
That steward had falsely claimed that the Master/Bridegroom, had already arrived (2Thess.2:1-3; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13-16). 
Since the Master's arrival includes an eternal appointment for the faithful (Matt.25:19; Luke19:17; 16:10-12; Dan.7:22,18), the steward could then assert that he had already been appointed as the "faithful slave" over all the Master's belongings (Matt.24:46-47; 28:18; Ps.2:8; Gen.13:14-15; 28:13-14; Dan.7:18), including all those deluded by this false proclamation about the Master's arrival.
Subjection to the unfounded authority of such a steward, and belief in his lying assertions, would place subjected followers under spiritual captivity to deception (Col.2:8; Rev.13:11,7,10; Luke 21:24; Rev.11:2).
Christ's "virgins" (2Cor.11:2; Matt.25:1) would also accept the bad provisions/"fruit"/teachings  coming from the wicked steward/false prophet, which would result in their having premature expectation (Matt.25:5). The Steward's declaration was premature (Dan.7:25,8; Rev.13:5). Expectations were disappointed (Luke17:20-23; Matt.24:23-25). The wicked steward would eventually be forced to retract his initial false assertion, by admitting the "delay" (Luke12:45)... 
which in truth, such a delay of the Master does not occur, because the Master/Bridegroom arrives, just when he should (Hab.2:3; Heb.10:37; Rev.22:20).

The "governing body" of "Jehovah's Witnesses" has recently changed their doctrine about the arrival of Christ, and when his inspection of all Churches claiming to be his Christian servants, occurred. In the past, they taught that their administration which was present in 1919, passed Christ's arrival and inspection, and as a result, was appointed as the faithful slave, over all Christ's belongings. 
What do they say now?
The following is an excerpt from
(http://www.jw.org/en/jehovahs-witnesses/activities/events/annual-meeting-report-2012/"
as follows:
"When Does Jesus Appoint the Slave “Over All His Belongings”?
Jesus said that the “master on arriving” (literally, “having come”) will appoint the slave “over all his belongings.” When does the Master, Jesus, arrive?
The expression translated “on arriving” is a form of the Greek word er′kho·mai. Verses 42 and 44 of chapter 24 translate a form of er′kho·mai as “coming.” In those verses, Jesus is referring to his coming as Judge during the great tribulation.—Matthew 24:30; 25:31, 32.
Jesus’ appointment of the “slave” over his “belongings,” then, must also be a future event. He will make that appointment during the great tribulation."

The leadership of "Jehovah's Witnesses" is now asserting, that the Master gave the "first appointment" in 1919, and will give the final reward, when he really returns (during the Great Tribulation). They also assert that since 1919, they and their governing "Watchtower" predecessors, are the only slaves of Christ being assigned the first appointment as steward. 
But remember what Christ himself said about that first appointment? 
It occurs before the Master leaves and before the Master receives his kingdom 
(Luke19:12-13; Matt.25:14-15) 
(which kingdom, the "Watchtower" claims, began in 1914 -before 1919). 
Jesus did not leave the earth in 1919 (John16:16,7; Acts 1:8-9). If 1919 were the time when the first appointment took place, that means that there were no appointed slaves of Christ (to be faithful or unfaithful) until 1919. Scripture easily nullifies that outrageous assertion (1Cor.4:1-2; 9:17; 3:5-6,8,14; Rom.1:1; Col.3:24; John15:15-16,8; Luke 6:44-45; 2Tim.4:2,5; 1Tim.4:16). Slaves of Christ have existed since Jesus was on earth, when the first of them received their assignment (Luke12:42; John 21:17; Matt.10:7-8; Eph.4:11-12 etc.). Some have been found faithful (2Tim.4:7-8; 1Pet.5:12; Eph.1:1; 6:21; Col.4:7,9,1,12; 1:2,7)... others, unfaithful (Col.2:19; Heb.6:4-6). Both sorts will grow together until the time of final harvest (Matt.13:25,29-30,39; 24:31; Rev.14:14-20) (Mark 13:30; Matt.28:20 B) (Mark 8:38).

Even as anointed teachers (Eph.4:11; 1Cor.12:28), we may make mistakes (Job 38:2; 42:3; 1Cor.4:6). We may speak before we are finished learning and therefore, spoke from a place of misunderstanding. We may prophesy or teach, before we realize our own assignment in the Body of Christ (1Cor.12:27-29,17-19; Eph.4:11-12)
Or, we may have the right idea in our mind, but fail at expressing it accurately. When such happens, we must right the wrong with a humble attitude, and be as diligent as possible in getting the corrections and clarifications to those whom we have taught. This is very different than claiming that the error came from God, which the WT asserts. How?
They claim that everything they teach, is a message from God, and is never wrong. When they must make changes and "adjustments", they promote such as "new light", as if the previous teaching needing change, was not error/darkness. Light is truth (John 14:6; 1:4). If it is not true, it is not light. No darkness comes from God, and His light does not change (1John 1:5; James 1:17).  
If we as teachers are guilty of teaching error, we must not blame God. It is our failure to go beyond what God gave us (1Cor.4:6), or to lose His spirit (Matt.25:8). It was Satan who claimed that his darkness was light (Gen.3:5; 1Tim.6:20). 

Jesus said, "Wisdom is PROVED RIGHTEOUS by it's children/results/works" (Luke 7:35). 
(John 7:17-18; 8:54,50)
Although the governing body claims that they are "the faithful slave", and they enforce that claim with an army of Gentile "elders"...
If by their own admission, the "wisdom" that they previously declared, is conceded as error (needs to be changed), then it was never God's wisdom (Jer.14:14; 23:16,15; Rev.8:10-11).
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2014/12/wormwood-armageddon-false-prophet.html)
How does a teacher "PROVE RIGHTEOUS", and therefore, exhibit genuine wisdom?
Rom.3:4 tells us...
"Let God be true, and every human being a liar. As it is written: "So that you may be *proved righteous* (John 7:18; 16:13) when you speak, and prevail when you judge."
There it is. If our speech is to be proven righteous and therefore wise and true, we must accept that God is true, and each of us, is a liar.
We prove our belief that God is true, when we derive ALL we teach, from scripture (John 17:17; 16:13; 7:17-18) and Holy spirit (John4:23-24). If we don't, it is not God who lied, but us. If our teachings are from God's Word, it will be found wise and true, and be proven righteous. It will not need to "vary" or change (1John 1:5; James 1:17).

1John4:6 reads;
"We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood."
If we listen to (accept, understand, believe, obey, and teach) the teachings of Christ's apostles and prophets (which are sourced in God's Word), we have the spirit of truth, and have accepted it's foundation (Eph.2:20; 1Cor.3:10).
Those who do not derive all they teach from scripture and spirit, have not accepted the supremacy of God. How can we tell the difference? 
We are listening to the foundation of God's true Temple (Eph.2:20-22; 1Cor.3:10), when we accept ("listen to" 1John4:6; Luke10:16) what they have written in scripture.
By a comparison to those writings, the fruit of a teacher's lips, is known (Luke 6:44-45; Matt.7:20). If that fruit/teaching is rotten, God was not the source of it (Rev.22:1-2; Eze.47:12; Ps.1:3).
All truth is backed by scripture.
I know of no scripture that identifies the governing body of "Jehovah's Witnesses", as the solitary steward assigned by Christ, or as already dubbed by Christ as found faithful (Luke 6:26). By their own admission, the bestowing of that distinction, is yet future. 
Why this change in doctrine? Because, the Master is coming later than they originally asserted. The Master is delaying.

I know of no scripture which encourages "pioneering" or the public posting of those names who do, or recording total hours of preaching, 
or counting placed literature, or number of visits, or attendees at meetings, or what people should wear, organizational hierarchy (Ec.5:8), or giving money for ostentatious building projects. 
Yet I am familiar with scriptures, which forbid such things (Matt.6:1-6,25; James 2:1-5; John7:24; Col.3:23; Prov.16:3; 2Cor.2:17; 1Chron.21:1). 
When a crime is committed by a member, the victim is silenced by the "elders". They are told they must protect the reputation of God's name. Why? Did God commit the crime? 
Merciless pressure is brought to bear in addition to what the victim has already suffered, as if God requires it (Ec.4:1). The result? The evil man goes free, and the oppressed are denied justice (1Cor.5:13; Isa.1:17; 10:1-2; 56:11; Ps.82:3; Jer.21:12; 23:17; 7:16-17; Job 6:14; Prov.24:24; 18:5; 31:8-9,5; Rev.18:3; Isa.5:20-23; Hosea 4:18). (Jer.22:16; Micah 6:8; James 2:13)
The real reason this injustice occurs? To protect a facade... the Image of the Organization, as a spotless spiritual paradise (Jer.6:13-14; Eze.13:10; 22:27; 34:2-4; Acts 20:29) (Rev.13:14-15,12,8; Isa.48:1-2; Jer.7:4; Matt.24:23). The innocent who do not honor that false Image of divinity, are slandered and expelled (Prov.17:15; Ex.23:6-7; Ps.12:5; Matt.7:15; 12:7; Jer.23:2; 22:3; Rev.11:7; 17:6; Zech.11:15-17) (Eze.45:9; Isa.59:3-9,14-15; 32:7; Amos 5:12). (Ps.94:21; Rev.20:9; Micah 7:3; 3:10-11; 1Thess.5:3)
-  -  -  -
Christ's belongings are more than his sheep.
His greatest treasure (of refined gold), is the truth that imparts life everlasting 
(Rev.3:18) (John 14:6; John1:14) (Ps.119:89; Matt.6:20; Isa.40:8; Luke21:33; John5:24; 6:27,51,55) 
Each of his chosen priests are given some of that truth (gold talents) (1John2:20,27) (Matt.25:15; 2Cor.4:7), and the assignment to use it to feed the rest of the body members (1Cor.12:7,18,27; 10:17; Eph.4:11-12), as well as all sheep who will listen (Ec.11:6; Luke 8:11; 2Tim.4:2; John 15:8; Luke 6:44-45; Matt.7:20; Rev.22:2,17).
These priests will be judged on their use of the truth Christ gave them 
(Matt.25:19-21; 25:24-25)....
whether they fed his sheep what Christ provided,
or they buried it, due to fear 
(Matt.25:25; 10:28; Rev.12:11; 13:15; Mark 8:35), 
or offered spiritual food ("fruit") that was not the true bread (Matt.7:20; 12:36-37)
(Isa.55:2; 29:8; Matt.25:8-10; Rev.13:17; Isa.55:1-2; Rev.3:18).
(What do "buying" and "selling" mean?)
In the time of the end, the "seventh 'angel' " of the seventh congregation, will be given the spirit of full truth, buried inside the seven seals of Revelation's scroll (John 16:13; Rev.10:7; 22:6; 1:1). 
That light of truth will not keep changing, such as the provisions sent out by the governing body 
(James 1:17; 1John 4:1, 6) (Rev.13:11; 19:20).

These "two appointments" help to clarify the existence of two kingdoms. 
During the time-limited "thousand year" kingdom of Christ, he and his faithful priests, subdue Christ's enemies (Ps.110:1; Acts 7:55; Col.1:13; 1Cor.15:25; 2Cor.10:3-5; Rev.19:11,14; 17:14; Ps.110:2; Rev.14:1; 20:4; Luke 22:29). This is during the first appointment.
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/11/the-thousand-years-image-of-beast.html)
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2014/01/the-day-and-night-of-thousand-years-two.html)
Afterward, the "second appointment" is for those found faithful, to rule forever in the Kingdom of God (Dan.7:22,18; Rev.3:12; John16:22; etc.). (Two Kingdoms)
Any who do not fulfill their first appointment, will not attain their eternal reward (Luke16:11-12,1-3; 8:18), despite the governing body's doctrinal exclusion of other anointed, from their calling and necessity to serve Christ, but that they should obey them instead, and their organization of non-anointed, "Gentile" "elders"(Rev.13:11,14-15) (Rev.2:20; Isa.47:8-10,3). Christ's Chosen servants must serve the Master, Christin whatever capacity God chose them for. (Gal.1:10; Rev.3:2-3; Eph.4:11-12; 1Cor.12:18)

  1. "Is that not essentially stating that the Master's arrival has been postponed/"delayed"?

    Another serious LIE that is the result of another LIE:1914. So the "master delaying" is a direct result of the 1914 LIE. Saying the master has delayed is ONLY because of 1914. The lies needed to make 1914 seem right will never end. What is the result of the "master delaying" by those who promote this lie? They beat their fellow slaves. The lies lead to other non scriptural actions,which is a reflection of the lies they promote. The Gb promote the "master delaying" because of 1914...and THEY are ones that beat their fellow slaves...and are drunk with "maddening wine" which reflects their harlotry. Luke 12:45

    1. Yes, consistent with Christ's words about the doctrine of the wicked steward,
      is Paul's words about the false apostles...
      "Now we ask you, brothers, REGARDING THE COMING OF OUR LORD Jesus, the Messiah, and our gathering together to him, 2 not to be so quickly upset or alarmed WHEN SOMEONE CLAIMS *as if from us*" (2Cor.11:13 -from apostolic leaders/stewards over the household/congregation, of saints 1Cor.14:33; Ps.89:5), "either by some spirit" (Rev.16:14; 1Tim.4:1), "conversation, or letter, that THE DAY OF THE LORD HAS ALREADY COME. 3 Do not let anyone DECEIVE YOU in any way, for it will not come unless the rebellion takes place first and the man of sin, who is destined for destruction, is revealed. 4 He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god and object of worship" (Dan.7:25; 1Cor.8:5; Ps.82:6). "As a result, he seats himself in the sanctuary of God" (Mark 13:14), "and himself declares that he is God (Rev.13:8,15)." (2Thess.2:1-4)

      You also refered to those false apostles and Harlot over the Gentile Beast, as being "drunk with 'maddening wine' which reflects their harlotry".
      It is interesting to look at how the Bible describes that "wine".
      "A second angel followed and said, "'Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great,' which made all the nations drink the maddening wine of her adulteries." (Rev.14:8)
      "For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries." (Rev.18:3)
      The Greek phrase from both verses, is literally; "out of the wine of the fury of her prostitution".
      This tells us that the maddening wine that inebriates the Nations under her spell (Jer.51:7), is sourced in her own fury/rage.
      What is she so angry about, and at whom is she angry...that she should prostitute herself, and intoxicate people "from all nations" with her "wine" (Deut.32:32-33; Isa.28:15)?
      She prostitutes herself to gain the power of Gentiles (Eze.23:8; Isa.36:6; Jer.17:3). The harlot rides a Beast, rather than rely on her God.
      Why does she turn to the Gentile Beast for power?
      She is wrathful and enraged at her faithful brothers, just as Cain was (1John3:12; 4:20; 3:14).
      Like Cain, our sacrifices to God are not accepted, unless we make peace with those with whom we have been wrathful (Matt.5:21-24; Luke12:42-46).
      The Harlots are not willing (Rev.2:21-23; Rev.18:4-5).
      Like Cain who lost God's favor, blessing, and inheritance; she wants to destroy her brothers, and steal their kingdom inheritance that she lost (Mark 12:1-9; Matt.23:34-35; Rev.18:24; 17:6).
      Since God's spirit will not support such desires, she must rely on the power of Gentiles, whom "she" sanctions to trample the Holy Ones into subjection to "her" (Rev.13:11,14-15,7; Dan.8:24,11; Matt.24:15; Rev.11:2). She MUST teach lies (Isa.28:15), in order to succeed in empowering the Gentile vessels of her lies, to overtake the faithful (Rev.12:15; 9:1-3,10; Eze.2:6), and convince the Holy Ones to subject themselves to her Gentile Beast/(Organization of non-anointed "elders"). Those lies which she gives the Nations to swallow (Rev.12:16), is her "wine"... the product of the vine of Satanic deception (Rev.16:13-16; 1Tim.4:1; Matt.24:24-25). In her rage against the faithful, she makes all the nations drink (Rev.5:9-10; 2:20) of her lying signs and portents (2Thess.2:9-10)... that she might reign as Queen (Rev.18:7; 17:1,15; Isa.47:8-11; 28:18; 1Cor.3:19).

  2. Great points. Liked the explanation about the Harlot/GB being angry.Just as Jesus as the first Christ was tempted with the opportunity to rule WITH satan...so that satan could use Jesus to seemingly justify the kingdoms under his rule,so the GB/Harlot has had the same temptation and failed. They want the blessing of Gods Kingdom,but are corrupted so as to accept "Rulership" without waiting for Christ and to rule with him...but have settled to rule with satan instead. Satan "blesses" them with material things,but are spiritual vagrants,as Cain was.

    This reflects the UNfaithfulness of Cain. Cain wanted Gods blessing seen within Abel without changing his unfaithfulness. Because he didnt want to change,he was angry,which reflected his unfaithfulness and spiritual condition. Instead of dealing with his own unfaithfulness,it satisfied his uncircumcised hearts longing to kill his brother instead of doing as Jah advised:"if you do well,surely you will be accepted". CHANGE!

    The GB want the blessings Christ's faithful brothers are having in this time,but they arent willing to repent and "if you do well,surely you will be accepted" and be given the blessings of Truth. They arent willing to change..and their UNfaithfulness is reflected in their anger at their Brothers who expose their UNblessed state.

    It was so obvious that Jah was blessing Abel..and Cain was spiritually UNfaithful and lazy to do what was needed,even though Jah wanted to bless Cain.

    So its easier for the Harlot/GB to Kill their Brothers than change so as to have the blessings they claim they have. What uncircumcised hearts the GB have...which their anger against their faithful brothers reveals.

  3. Even in the first century, there were anointed who failed that same test, who acted as if they already received the reward of God's eternal kingdom.
    1Cor.4:8 reads;
    "Already you have all you want! Already you have become rich! You have begun to reign--and that without us! How I wish that you really had begun to reign so that we also might reign with you!"
    Paul brings out that these ones reign without the rest of their brothers, and see nothing wrong with merciless domination over them (Mark 10:42-43). In fact, Paul endured the same indignation at the hands of such brazen ones, as is revealed in the context...
    "7 For who makes you superior? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as though you did not receive it? 8 You already have all you want! You have already become rich! You have become kings without us! I wish you really were kings so that we could be kings with you! 9 For it seems to me that God has put us apostles on display in last place, like men condemned to death. We have become a spectacle for the world, for angels, and for people to stare at. 10 We seem as fools for the Messiah’s sake, but you are wise in the Messiah. We are weak, but you are strong. You are honored, but we are dishonored. 11 We are hungry, thirsty, dressed in rags, brutally treated, and homeless, right up to the present. 12 We wear ourselves out from working with our own hands. When insulted, we bless. When persecuted, we endure. 13 When slandered, we answer with kind words. Even now we have become the filth of the world, the scum of the universe." (1Cor.4) (Isa.66:5-6; John16:2; Matt.24:9; Rev.11:7-10)

    Paul counseled ones that were inclined to accept such domination (2Cor.11:4-5,20,13; Rom.6:16; 1Cor.7:23; Gal.1:10), as Jesus also gives warning (Rev.2:20; 13:11,15,7; 11:2; Matt.5:13), because in the time of the end, the same abuse of position, happens to the Chosen under the wicked steward (Luke12:11,42,45-46). Cowardice prevents those dominated, from being sealed (Rev.7:3; 9:3-4,10; Eze.2:6; Luke10:19).

    The harlot does not want to be faithful, because the life of faithfulness (2Tim.3:12; 1Thess.3:3; Matt.16:24; Heb.13:13; Acts 14:22; 1John 2:6; Rom.6:5; Rev.6:9-11) is anything but comfortable to the flesh and glorious to the eyes (James 4:4-10; 1John2:9-11,15-16).
    In the context of the scripture you cite; God warned Cain;
    "If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, **sin is crouching at your door; it craves to have you**, but you must rule over it." (Gen.4:7).
    The original language words carry the idea of being eaten by sin. When a Chosen one, (who was previously saved from sin and death), returns to their fleshly and worldly desires; Satan devours them (1Pet.5:8). Being in his belly, is like Jonah (Jonah 2:2) being devoured by the "sea monster" (Ps.74:13-14; Isa.27:1). As Christ experienced death at Satan's hand (though, without sin - Heb.4:15), being devoured by Satan, means being overcome by the realm of death (Matt.12:38-40; Rom.10:7; Acts 2:24).
    Satan's belly (the "lion" that devours), is the realm/abyss, of those who are dead.
    (http://4womaninthewildernessforum.yuku.com/sreply/828/Comments-on-generation).

    Those who had been saved, scorn the blood of Christ and the Covenant Mother of life (Gal.4:26,24)(Ps.86:13), to return to the realm of death (Ps.9:15-17; Isa.14:9-11,15).... by desiring all the temporary rewards of this world (1John2:17; Matt.4:8-9; Rev.17:18; 18:5; Luke12:20-21).
    Although righteous (Heb.11:4), Abel still wanted to atone for his sins before God. This is why he offered up a lamb without blemish (Heb.9:22; Gen.4:4). He himself, became a righteous sacrifice (without blemish) (Matt.23:35; Heb.12:24). He loved his brother to the end.
    Will not God avenge the blood of such servants? (Gen.4:10; Rev.17:6; 6:9-10; 19:2; Luke18:7; Isa.29:7; Rev.20:9)

    Thank you for your good comments, and the spirit given to supplement.

  4. Pearl,more great scriptures!

    Jas 4:4-10 NKJV - 4 Adulterers and* adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

    Wow,doesnt this scripture makes so much sense now we know James is talking to adulterous Anointed back then...and now! The GB who are the supreme example of UNrepentant adulterers,love what satan offers them because they "left the love they had at first" for the truth,which is why they were Anointed. Anointing was a reflection of that Love.

    The GB love to have the "showy display of ones means of life". They think people are impressed by their position and "spiritual wealth" within the Org. But it all comes from satans "world". HE gives it to them. The GBs "means of life" seems to be from Jah,but its satan who is their "means of life"..that enables them to have their "showy display". 1 John 2:15-17

    Its their faithful Anointed brothers who are exposing why they have what they arrogantly "display". Its not what those being misled within jws think.

    No matter how great their "showy display" of "righteousness",how they treat their Anointed Brothers shows its only a "showy display" of righteousness...and not the real thing.1Jo 2:9-11 NKJV - 9 He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now. 10 He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him. 11 But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes."

    If you are Anointed,how can you hate your fellow Anointed? So many scriptures like this within jws,was mistakenly applied to them "showing love as a sign of the true religion". But its not. Its talking about ANOINTED who betray their Spirit Anointing, and this is evidenced by their hating their fellow Anointed! Because the GB only have a "showy display" and they HATE their fellow Anointed, The GB "does not know where he is going" despite the "showy display" seeming to say they have spiritual light.

    But those they are trying to impress as a sign of "jehovahs blessing",dont know its satan blessing them. They want to "spiritually impress" under the guise of God,but SATAN is making them look as though they are blessed by God. Satan blesses HIS "adulterers" so others think they serve God to get others to follow them. What a deception is going on with satans adulterers....and their adulterous "showy display"! What they pridefully display,is a "display" from their adultery. They have no shame over the evidences of their Adultery,because who gives them their "showy display" is hidden. But their Brothers are exposing this..and thus they are hated.

    They seem to have "gods blessing",but as adulterers have "Gods enmity".

  5. So many times while I was at Bethel, I would hear the comment made, that the things we saw there could only reflect God's blessing. The word "Bethel" means; "house of God". Now let's take a closer look at that. They believe that the physical buildings and the activity that is based within them, is a manifestation of God's house...his place of worship, and the dwelling of His spirit. I firmly state that this is not only impossible, but it is blasphemy, as well as proof where their success originates. But of course, this has to be proven by scripture, if it is true.
    God himself should know where His resting place is. He should know what kind of house in which his spirit resides. His Word, tells us these things. It is good to compare His words, to what we observe the "Watchtower" to be. By means of God's Truth, we are enabled to open our eyes and wake up!
    Where is God's resting place?
    Isa.66:1-2
    "This is what the Lord says:
    'Heaven is my throne,
    and the earth is my footstool.
    Where is the house that you would build for me,
    and where will my resting place be?
    2 All these things my hand has made,
    and so all these things came into being,”
    declares the Lord.
    “But this is the one to whom I will look favorably:
    to the one who is humble and contrite in spirit,
    and who trembles at my message."
    God states that He has made the earth and everything in it.
    ""The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and DOES NOT LIVE IN TEMPLES BUILT BY HUMAN HANDS." (Acts 17:24)
    Where then, does his spirit rest on earth... His footstool?
    Ps.132:13
    "For the Lord has chosen ZION,
    desiring it as his dwelling place.
    14 “This is my resting place forever.
    Here I will live,
    because I desire to do so."
    Remember Isa.66:2 B?
    "But this is the one to whom I will look favorably:
    to the one who is humble and contrite in spirit,
    and who trembles at my message."
    Yes, God will dwell in Mt. Zion.
    What does that have to do with those who are humble, dejected, and who fear the Word of God?
    "Lord, who may stay in your tent?
    WHO MAY DWELL ON YOUR HOLY MOUNTAIN? (2Pet.1:18; Matt.17:1-3; Rev.14:1)
    2 The one who lives with integrity,
    who does righteous deeds,
    and who speaks truth to himself.
    3 The one who does not slander with his tongue,
    who does no evil to his neighbor,
    and who does not destroy his friend’s reputation.
    4 The one who despises those who are utterly wicked,
    but who honors the one who fears the Lord,
    who keeps his word even when it hurts and does not change,
    5 who does not loan his money with interest,
    and who does not take a bribe against those who are innocent.
    The one who does these things will stand firm forever." (Ps.15)
    Can you see the reason why God mentions such a person, when answering where He chooses to dwell?
    We are told that God does not dwell in material buildings, nor does He need them.
    He dwells in Zion, among those who belong there.
    Where would that be on earth, in the physical realm?

    1. In speaking of Zion, God said,
      "“All the descendants of those who oppressed you
      will come bending low before you,
      and all those who despised you
      will bow down at your feet.
      They’ll call you ‘The City of the Lord,’
      ‘Zion of the Holy One of Israel.’”
      “He has given you the glory of Lebanon,
      and it will come to you,
      the cypress, and the plane tree, and the pine,
      to adorn the place of MY SANCTUARY;
      and I will make THE PLACE OF MY FEET, glorious." (Isa.60:14,13; Dan.8:11) (Matt.5:35)
      Yes, God's resting place for His feet, is the "earth" (Acts 7:49),... His "sanctuary" of His Temple.
      We know that Temple cannot be made by human hands
      (Mark 14:58; Matt.16:18; Eph.2:20-22; Zech.4:9; 1Chron.22:10; Ps.2:6-8; Heb.1:5; 1Pet.2:5).
      (Eph.2:10; Isa.29:23; 43:7,10,21; 1Pet.2:9)
      Christ is the cornerstone of that Temple, and the living stones added upon the foundation of apostles and prophets, are those whom God chooses...
      the humble, dejected by the world, and God-fearing. He comes to dwell in them (1Cor.3:16,9; 6:19; Heb.3:6).
      So, God's "Bethel" is not physical at all, but spiritual. His true worshipers worship IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH (John4:23-24; Ps.51:17-18)... not in million dollar construction projects, or a billion dollar corporation. It is to be a spiritual house of prayer forever (Isa.56:7; 2:3; Matt.21:13; Rev.13:17).
      In the Book of Revelation, Jesus told us that there would be a false prophet/two horned beast, from the "earth"/footstool/Temple (Isa.66:1; Ps.132:7; Isa.60:13) (Rev.13:11,14-15; 19:20),
      and a Wild Beast from the "sea" (Rev.13:1; Isa.57:20; Eze.44:9). We are told that this Beast from the sea, is covered with blasphemous names (Rev.13:1,6-10). The false prophet has given it divinity, and demands that it's image be worshiped (Rev.13:15,8). This deception, even overcomes the Holy Ones (Rev.13:7; Dan.8:11-12; Matt.24:24-25; Rev.13:14-15; 2:20). That same blasphemous Beast, is ridden by a Harlot. This brings us full circle to our earlier comments.
      When a religious organization claims to be God's Temple house of God's spirit, they commit blasphemy...
      unless of course, they are members of heavenly Mount Zion
      (Heb.12:22-23; Eph.2:6; Rom.8:9; 1Cor.6:17; John17:21-22,26,6; 1:18; 1John5:20).
      The accomplishments of the "Watchtower" organization are by no means unique to Satan's world.
      It is not hard to discern that this is the source of their power (Rev.13:4), unless you are drunk on the Harlot's "wine".
      Their unity and tight ranks of "elders" is by Christ's own words, the greatest army to ever dominate God's people.
      (http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2015/06/the-greatest-tribulation-why.html)
      But it's unity and control does not prove God's backing, and could even be compared to the Third Reich.
      Satan knows his time to abort the kingdom of God, is short.
      He is using every machination he has, against the "remaining ones of the woman's seed" (Rev.12:17,9,15; 16:13-16; 20:7-8).
      For good reason, Christ warned us to "Keep Awake!"

  6. Jas 1:17 NKJV - 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning".
    Does the GBs physical wealth come from being blessed from Jah with spiritual light? No.The scripture you quote says Jahs light is always from one fixed point. Which is why there is "no variation" in that Truth of Light. But the GB have the demonic expression "new light",which is supposedly from Jah. Yet, if that spiritual light really was from Jah,the light He would give them would be with "no variation". The fact that there is constant "variation" and "new light",shows their light is NOT from Him.

    Yet their "new light" is seen by CONSTANT "variation". Just look at the constant changing/"variation" in regards to "generation". There "recent" attempts to explain it,show their "light" is not from Jah. HIS Light never has any "variation"!

    You spoke about their claims that their "Bethel" HQ in each country is a house of God...and that this is blasphemous. What has been revealed from the Royal Commission into sexual assaults against children in Australia,is that within "bethel" they deliberately hid 1,006 files of known offenders..and hid those files within "bethel" so they wouldnt have to go to the Police. These documents exist in EVERY bethel around the world! How can Gods Rest be within a building where such documents are hidden illegally? And the hiding of these criminals led to more sexual assaults. How can Jah make such a place His House? That information should have gone to the Police as Jah commands.Romans 13:4. Yet the so called elders involved hid these within bethel for over 50 years. How dare they call those places "House of God". Which "god' want these things "hidden"? The god who backs the GB and their constant "new light",satan.

    1. Even as teachers, we may make mistakes. We may speak before we are finished learning and therefore, spoke from a place of misunderstanding.
      Or, we may have the right idea in our mind, but fail at expressing it accurately. When such happens, we must right the wrong with a humble attitude, and be as diligent as possible in getting the corrections and clarifications to those whom we have taught. This is very different than claiming that the error came from God, which the WT does. They claim that everything they teach, is a message from God, and is never wrong. When they must make changes and "adjustments", they promote such as "new light", as if the previous teaching needing change, was not error/darkness. Light is truth. If it is not true, it is not light. No darkness comes from God, and His light does not change.
      If we as teachers are guilty of teaching error, we must not blame God. It is our failure to go beyond what God gave us (1Cor.4:6), or to lose His spirit. It was Satan who claimed that his darkness was light (Gen.3:5).
      Jesus said, "Wisdom is PROVED RIGHTEOUS by it's children/results/works" (Luke 7:35).
      If by our own admission, the "wisdom" that we previously declared is proven error (needs to be changed), then it was never God's wisdom.
      How does a teacher "PROVE RIGHTEOUS", and therefore, exhibit genuine wisdom?
      Rom.3:4 tells us...
      "Let God be true, and every human being a liar. As it is written: "So that you may be *proved righteous* when you speak, and prevail when you judge."
      There it is. If our speech is to be proven righteous and therefore wise, we must accept that God is true, and each of us, is a liar.
      We prove our belief that God is true, when we derive ALL we teach, from scripture (John 16:13; 7:17-18; 17:3). If we don't, it is not God who lied, but us. If our teachings are from God, it will be found wise and true. It will not need to "vary" or change.
      1John4:6 reads;
      "We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood."
      If we listen to (accept, understand, believe, obey, and teach) the teachings of Christ's apostles and prophets, we have the spirit of truth.
      Those who do not, have not. How can we tell the difference?
      We are listening to the foundation of God's true Temple (Eph.2:20-22; 1Cor.3:10), when we accept ("listen to") what they have written in scripture.
      By a comparison to those writings, the fruit of a teacher's lips, is known (Luke 6:44-45; Matt.7:20).
