God's will and requirements / Re-baptism?

Questions:

Dear Pearl,
...I'm always wanting to be under Yhwh's love, but Jesus Christ said "not everyone saying Lord Lord will enter the kingdom", and many will say "did we not prophesy and expel demons in your name and he will say I never knew you" (Matt.7:21-23). So I ask myself, what is God's will? I know John 17:3  says to take in knowledge of you and of the one you've sent forth. Is God's will to, in an undertone watch day study his law and apply it? What more is there if its not to prophesy or bear witness to the truth?
I also would like to ask,
Do you feel being baptized in the organization is a valid one, (being baptized in the name of the father son and God's spirit directed organization)? They don't say what spirit that is that's directing it. Did you get re-baptized after leaving? I often wonder and whether going somewhere to be baptized in the name of those three should be done?

My reply:

You ask about God's will, and how many who think they are doing it, will be rejected by Christ (Luke13:28; Matt.25:11-13). You rightly see that God requires us to learn His truths, and then to practice them, as well as publicize them. There is a good scripture that helps to simplify what God expects of us. It is Micah 6:8...

"He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God."
God has told us "what is good", throughout the scriptures, and especially through the teachings of Christ (John 7:16; 14:24; 12:49; 17:8; 15:15). Based upon those teachings, He expects us to exercise God's expressed justice in our dealings. He expects us to love kindness... treating others as we wish to be treated. (Matt.7:12) He expects us to avoid feelings of superiority over others, remembering that we are all sinners, and do not deserve what belongs to God... namely worship or obedience (obey-men?). We may teach God's words, but any obedience to them (2Thess.1:8), is not to us.

Whatever we have in the way of understanding, we were granted by God's mercy (1Cor.4:7). We received it from God... not because we are anything (Rom.12:3; 2Cor.10:13; Eph.4:7; 3:7; 1Pet.4:11), but because God's will must be accomplished (Isa.55:11). We remember that He could make mere stones cry out, if we didn't (Luke19:39-40; Eze.36:26-27; Luke6:45; Hab.2:11).

Those who say, "Lord, Lord" think they have done great things, by their prophesying (Rev.13:11; 16:13; 1Tim.4:1; 1John4:1), expelling demons (Luke11:24-26), and powerful works (Rev.13:12-14). But by what means did they really do those things? They did it through a brutal power, that forgot Christ's Law of Love (John13:34-35; 1Cor.13:1-13; Matt.7:23). They did it by Satan's power, through a Gentile "Beast" (Rev.13:4,6; 2Pet.2:12; Jude 1:10), as "it" slanders, reviles, and blasphemes the faithful "least of Christ's brothers" (Luke6:22; John16:2; Rev.11:7; 2:9; Matt.25:41-46). This is why we must "come out of her" who "rides" that Beast (Rev.18:4; 2Cor.6:17; Isa.52:11; Jer.51:6; Luke21:22,21; Matt.24:16,15) (LINK), so that we do not share in such sins. Yes, we were unknowingly baptized into that Beast... promising to let it guide our spiritual lives. In time, that guidance strayed far away from God's guidance (666). The fork in the road has come, and we must decide if we worship and obey God as His slaves (Deut.11:18; Rev.22:4; 2:2), or as slaves of the Beast (Rev.13:16; Rom.6:16; Gal.1:10) (Rev.2:20; 2Cor.11:20,12-15,2-5).
Our baptism involves the things Jesus said, at Matt.28:19-20....
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you."

We must learn Jesus Christ's commands, live according to them, and be baptized in the names of those whom we do worship. Those divine requirements are not the same as our dedication to the Organization (Isa.2:22; Ps.146:3; Rev.13:8).

(More info. about re-baptism: LINK)

Yet, if we were baptized by Holy Spirit into Christ (Matt.3:11; Gal.3:27,26; Col.2:11), we are already baptized, and yet, we need to be cleansed...
not by literal water, but by obedience to God's Word (1Pet.3:21; Eph.5:26; Titus 3:5; John13:14; Ps.119:9). That is what will cleanse us of the mark of the Beast. We are then, no longer branded as it's slaves (Rev.13:16) if we become branded as slaves of God (Deut.11:18; Rev.7:3; 22:4). That brings us back to Micah 6:8
"He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God."
The false prophet and it's Beast do not obey any of those requirements.
If we do, we are slaves of God, and are doing His will.

For those chosen by God to belong to Christ, as his covenant Bride and the dwelling of God's spirit on earth (1Cor.3:16; 1Pet.2:5,9-10; Eph.2:20-22; Rev.21:3); there is further guidance about what God is seeking within the heart, at Psalm 15 (Rev.21:9-10,27; 22:14-15).

Here is a Bible study, for those seeking to follow Matt.28:19-20

Of course, God's Will also includes teaching others what we have learned from Christ and his Body (Eph.4:11-12). Here is an additional link, about how that aspect of God's will, is accomplished: (LINK).  I hope this letter helps you to understand what God's will is, and about your baptism question. Thank you for writing to me, and I hope you will let me know how you do with the information.
Love in Christ,
Pearl

  1. Psa 146:3 Do not trust in princes,In mortal man, in whom there is no salvation."

    The GB have set themselves up with satans backing as "princes"within jws. Being such, they have lost their chance at being "immortal",but have instead chosen death and are mortal because of UNfaithfulness.

    They have the Invitation to be immortal. Jah even gave them His Holy spirit as a token for them to know they might have immortality. But because of a love of lies,have lost that.

    Its these unfaithful “Mortal men” through whom “there is no salvation" we are warned about. If they love lies,have lost their Heavenly Hope,how can they possibly give “jws” “salvation”,that they cannot give themselves?

    Why would we trust such ones who cannot supply their own "salvation"...who have satans backing and have lost immortality through UNfaithfulness?

    What can they offer to us,is what they cannot give themselves,which they threw away. Therefore,what they offer us is a LIE. We cannot trust these satanically backed “princes” and their claims of giving others salvation!

    Psa 62:9 Men of low degree are only vanity and men of rank are a lie;
    In the balances they go up;They are together lighter than breath.”

    Their “rank” they have received from satan is a lie..its based on lies...they LOVE LIES...and TEACH these lies to keep their positions within jws as "princes".
    On Jahs “ balances” of assessment they go...and they dont measure up. So why trust these PROVEN lie loving “princes”, leading JWs into certain death. There is NO “salvation” from these UNfaithful Anointed,or the organisation they lead.
