INTRODUCTION



PLEASE FIND ALL NEW POSTS BELOW THIS INTRODUCTION    ---   CLICK HERE FOR FORUM

Dear Readers,
I am going to leave this post as a constant feature at the top of this Main Page.
All new posts will be entered below it.
My reason is because recent posts have advanced in spiritual depth, and those who are new to this site, find it difficult to perceive the scriptural basis for what is currently taught.

I request and advise that all cited scriptures be read. Most of your learning will occur while reading the cited scriptures. They will pop up for you, if you place your curser over them. All the beneficial information the posts contain, is within the cited scriptures. Much of the theme and thrust of the article, will be found, only in the scriptures. I leave many holes around my own words, which can only be filled and bridged by the scriptures contained. If you do not read them, you have missed the main points.
I realize that following this suggestion, takes time.
I hope you take your time, perhaps reading one post in sections, so that all scriptures can be read, at the same time, along with the sentence that surrounds them.
You can pace yourself, and the sessions you devote to one article. Please consider structuring your studies in this way,
because reading my words only, is a sad waste of both of our time.

There are currently, almost 700 posts and 57 articles.
Here is a link, to make an easy perusal of all the Main Page posts, if you wish to find a topic of interest: (LINK).
The emphasis of the 57 blog articles [found in my profile (LINK)],
is to introduce the foundation of what follows here on the Main Page, with solid scriptural backing. It is not possible for each advancing post, to repeat each foundation for the topic at hand. This can give some the impression, that the current topic has no basis in scripture, even though this conclusion is usually a result of inadequate preparation.

This might be illustrated in any formal schooling. Those who have advanced through all the basics, already understand and assume many things they have already tested, examined, learned, and accepted as fact. They are able to move forward to learn the more complex truths which are based upon the previously accepted foundation.
For those who enter an advanced class without having first established the fundamentals;
confusion, doubt, and rejection of assertions as unproven, result.

This is because the founding scriptural truths of every post, will not usually be discussed again if that information has already has been covered. We must advance in order to mature. This advancement is what the Main Page is for. Please make full use of the searchbox when needed.

Occasionally, the background to a new topic will need it's foundation established first. This is when a new blog article, located at a different webpage, and listed in my profile, will be released, and notice given on this Main Page.

If you are new to this site, I strongly suggest first reading the list of articles to the upper right (they are links to click on), as well as other articles contained in my profile, and listed in the DIRECTORY LINK, which you can find both below, and in that article list to the upper right.
These readings should give you the foundation you need, in order to more fully understand current posts, and have assurance about the deeper interpretation and application of God's Word, which is progressively posted here.

If you do not speak and read English, and have translated this information (translator at the top right side of this page);
the pop up scriptures should also work for you in your own language. You will first see the English. If you wait a few seconds after it pops up, the scripture will translate into your language. I also welcome you to post comments. You can do so, by submitting your comment to
Google Translate tool : https://translate.google.com/
from your language, into English.
You can then copy and paste the English translation to the comment section.
You can also use the Google Translate tool, to submit English comments and replies, and read them in your own language.

For ANY question which arises or remains, during or after your study;
there is a contact form, also within the right column here. Please feel welcomed to use it. It is more constructive for you to have your question satisfied. I will be able to refer you to the appropriate material, or I will answer you directly. There are also others who have studied extensively, who may also be available to assist you.
If you speak a language other than English, please submit your question in your own language, and tell me what language it is in the first part of your message. Try to use the most simple and direct words available. I will have it translated myself.

To do a search of a specific topic about which I have written, there is a search box to the right. Enter/type your subject or scripture in the empty question box. Then click on the blue box Search. This should return relevant results. If those results are inadequate, please contact me (by means of the "contact" form to the right) for information tailored to your individual need.
  If you are searching a scripture, rather than a subject;
consider also searching that scripture's cross reference.
In other words, if you want information about Mark13:8; also consider searching Matt.24:7,8;
because I may have written about that scriptural subject, using Matt.24:7,8 instead of Mark13:8.

One of our readers told me this helpful tip about search results...
"If you press "control" (ctrl) then press "F" at the same time, this function will highlight the words on the page that you are searching."
When I tried this, I first went into one of the result links,
and then pressed "ctrl" and the letter "f".
In the top right, another little search box appeared.
I put my same search word(s) (or scriptural verse) in that new search box.
After clicking "enter", that search word(s) (or Bible verses) were highlighted on my result page.
I would appreciate feedback from readers, about how this works (or does not work) for you,
or if you need more help.

If you use a reader digest site, such as Feedspot, I ask that you come to this site directly to read.
Such digest sites will not update edits and additions.
By visiting this site directly and reading where the work was done,
your visit counts toward making the site available to others in search engine results.
Every time a search result ends in another visit here, the Google rating improves, along with the sites visibility to new searchers.

We live during a time of revelation. New concepts and interpretations are becoming unveiled. Many of these things are deeper and more complex than what we have previously known. Many run contrary to the Satanic deceptions to which we all subscribed, and which have become deeply entrenched within our perceptions. These doctrines must be overturned with great care and power, which only by a careful and intense scriptural study, can this be done for us. This requires an attentive study of the basics, before being prepared for present releases. But most importantly, it requires the grace of God, and supplication in prayer.
As always, if any questions arise, there is a contact form on the right side of this page.

Please enter the site by a direct search for "pearl doxsey", or for "4womaninthewilderness",
unless the URL is saved on your PC.
Please do not enter the site repeatedly through one post, or by searching on a search engine repeatedly for the same subject or post. When this is done, it adversely affects the accurate count of post readings, which keeps the list of "Popular posts of the Month" from refreshing. Other topics of reader interest are then crowded off the list of highlighted links. It is best to keep that list fresh, for the interest of new readers and availability of new topics.

If you appreciate what you are learning here, and are endeavoring to live in harmony with the scriptural direction expressed;
you are welcomed to join the forum, for support.
The link to the forum, is

I have deep appreciation for the many expressions I receive from readers, and hope that you will send me feedback and any suggestions for improving the reading experience. Please feel welcomed to use the contact form in the right side column of this page.
If you believe the scriptural things you learn here;
please share those scriptures and the truth they reveal, with others.
This can be done on the various internet forums which cater especially to "Jehovah's Witness" ideology, mindset, and experience.

May God continue to answer our sincere requests for heavenly bread (Matt.6:11; John 6:27,35,51,58,55; 14:21,6; Rev.2:17), which we receive through the true vine, and his faithful branches (John15:4,5,8; 1Cor.4:1).
May God bless all of you with spirit and truth (John 4:23-24), and the eternal blessing to follow for those who worship according to them
(John 8:31; 6:63; 2John 1:9).
Love in Christ,
Pearl

" hissing noise " ?

I was asked what the "hissing noise" is, at 2Pet.3:10, which is heard when the "heaven's and earth", pass away.

Here is my reply:

The Greek word does not mean, "hissing".
It means, a loud noise of defeat, confusion, and panic, like a great crash when something falls.
Here is a link to the Greek word's, definition:
(https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?t=kjv&strongs=g4500)

Here are the scriptures which tell us, what the "hissing noise", is:
Isa.66:6 [Note the context (Isa.66:22) is also speaking of the "new heavens and earth" (2Pet.3:13)]
Zeph.1:10 and Zeph.1:14

It is also the spiritual sound which occurs, when our faith, collapses (Luke 6:49).
It is also the sound which occurs, when God replies to such an outcry of rebelliousness...
See related scriptures:
Ps.46:1-3; 65:7; Isa.5:30; 17:12; Jer.6:23; 5:22; 11:16; 12:8; 25:30


So, the "hissing noise" (crashing roar), is referring to the spiritual sound that will be heard in the spirit realm, when God repays His enemies, and they fall. It is a sound of defeat, confusion, and panic, inside the hearts of God's enemy, when He conquers them. It will be a loud roar.

Symbolic " flesh and blood " / invited and chosen / Two Vines

Additions made, at the end

QUESTIONS:
Greetings again Pearl,

I have read many posts on your blog.  My head is spinning - but I understand and accept you explanations of Scripture. (in fact, I have shared a link of your website with other ex-JW truth-seekers)

I do have one question, however (which I can not find discussed among your blog posts)

I remember the Scripture which says: "many are invited, but few chosen"
So I'm trying to understand the following Scripture:

John 6:53-59
When Jesus said:  "unless you eat of my flesh and drink my blood....etc..."

Who was he talking to on that occasion?John 6:53-59?
It appears that Jesus was talking to many Jews (in a public setting), not just to his disciples.

Was he telling EVERYONE - that they must "partake of his flesh and blood" 
(as a symbol that they accepted his teachings, and became his disciples?)

He said this BEFORE the passover (which he shared with 11 disciples)
He said this "before" any of his disciples were anointed at Pentecost.

It appears that he was inviting many to become disciples and partake (of his flesh and blood) Yet, even if they did... only a few would be chosen as Kingdom heirs. 

According to Scripture -  Jesus only invited 11 disciples to share the passover with him. (and established a covenant with them - because they stuck with him through his trials)

Therefore, how does Jesus words apply to others - who LATER become disciples?   (and suffer for declaring the name of Jesus),... does that mean that they should start partaking- before, or after becoming anointed with Holy Spirit?

Does the anointing of Holy Spirit - actually mean they have been "chosen" as heirs?

Just curious as to Why Jesus would tell everyone (including those who were not yet disciples),... that they must eat his flesh & drink his blood - if they were not yet chosen or anointed.

MY REPLY:
Please consider many points, made by the context of your cited verse.
If you read the context of John6:53....
Verse 55: "For my flesh is true food and my blood is true drink."
    Can you see that the "flesh" and "blood" Jesus was referring to, was "true"?
    Is that the literal emblems?
...Now verse 57:
   "Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me.
Do we "live" forever, because we eat literal bread and wine on a certain day?
No. How do we know this?
See verse 47:
"Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life."
It is not literal eating, 
but believing, that bestows life.
Believing in what? 
Believing in literal bread and wine? Jesus just got done, chastising the crowd for putting faith in literal food (see John6:26-27).
John5:24 reads;
"Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word ("true food") and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life."
If we believe the one who sent Christ,
then we are putting faith in, the teachings of Christ, who only spoke what the Father taught him (John12:49). If we believe the words of Christ, we are believing the Father. If we hear, believe, and obey the teachings of Christ (from God), we will live.
This is not speaking of life, through literal bread and wine.
Further...
Note what Jesus said about this "bread", at verse 35...
"Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty."
Do the literal emblems, remove our physical hunger, permanently?
Does the wine, take away our thirst, permanently?
Can you see that the "bread", is symbolic?
Verse 27 reads;
"Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, *which the Son of Man will give you."
Jesus also provides that "food that endures", through his Chosen (John15:16).
This food endures, because it will always be true (Luke 21:33).
*Does Jesus give us the literal bread and wine that we may eat, at the Memorial?
What "bread" does Jesus give us, that provides eternal life?
Verse 63 answers;
"The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you--they are full of the Spirit and life."
So... was Jesus referring to literal bread and wine, when saying that our taking him in, gives life?
Or, is the living bread from heaven... the one who provides "true" teachings...
teachings that, if taken in and obeyed, bring life?
John8:51;
"Very truly I tell you, whoever obeys my word will never see death."

What part of Christ, do people take in, which takes away symbolic hunger, and gives eternal life? Is it literal bread and wine?
No. 
John17:3 reads; This is eternal life:
that they may know You, the only true God,
and the One You have sent—Jesus Christ."
Life results from "knowing" God and the one sent from heaven... the Bread from heaven. We can only know God, through the teachings of Christ. Just as Matt.11:27 reads;
"no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal Him."
The only way to "know" the Father and Christ, is to take in his teachings...
not by taking in the emblems.
So...
when Jesus spoke of taking in his flesh and blood at John, chapter 6,
was he referring to the emblems of the Memorial?.... Or,
was he referring to his persona of being the Word of God...
and our taking in those words from God...
true words, from heaven, personified in the human manifestation... the body and blood of the man, Jesus Christ? (John1:14)

What then, of the emblems?
Did you know that the same symbols can be used for different meanings?
Take for example, a comparison of John3:14 and Rev.12:9A
John3:14 reads;
"Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,"
Rev.12:9 A reads;
"So the great dragon was thrown out—the ancient serpent,who is called the Devil and Satan"
So... is the "serpent" in each Bible verse, the same identity? Does that symbol (snake/serpent), have the same meaning in both uses?
Jesus used the symbol of his body and blood, in John, chapter 6, for all he stood for, and the whole purpose of his human existence in human flesh... 
To provide the knowledge of God, which when taken in, results in eternal life.
In that chapter, the symbolic flesh and blood, stood for the truth in Christ.
When we take it in, and obey it, we Live.
What about the blood that all must drink?
Jesus said that not only do we need the truth, we also need the spirit (John4:24) in order to worship God correctly.
  Jesus was filled with God's spirit (Luke 4:1), as if it were his life-blood (Lev.17:14; John6:63; Rom.8:2,11; 1Cor.15:45; Gal.6:8). If we take in that spirit/"blood", offered by Christ, we have the other requisite for life (John6:63; Rom.8:13).
Paul referred to the spirit from Christ, as the sap of the true vine (Rom.11:17,24; John15:1-2,4-5) (Ps.92:12-15).
Just as a vine sends sap to it's branches,
Christ sends the life-giving "fluid" within him, to those bound to him in spirit (1Cor.6:17). Jesus shares the spirit, and the life it provides, with those truly receptive to him.
We must have both, spirit and truth, in order to live.

What about the emblems? What did they stand for?
Jesus told us...
"And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body given up for you; do this in remembrance of me." (Luke22:19)
Can you see that in this instance, the bread symbolized the sacrifice of Jesus body, by his death? The bread of the Memorial serves as a reminder of Jesus' sacrifice, for his own Bride (see Eph.5:25).
What about the blood/wine, of the Memorial. What did that signify?
Matt.26:28 reads;
"This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins."
Luke22:20;
"In the same way, after supper He took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is poured out for you."
Do you see, that the wine/"blood", is a symbol for the price of forgiveness of sin?
Heb.9:22 reads;
"In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness."

It is evident, that not all the disciples of Christ, were at the first Memorial.
Only those whom Jesus chose to be there, were... the twelve.
Yet the "bread from heaven" (the truth from God), is free, and available to any who desire it.
Though the same symbols were used, they have different meanings, in different contexts. It is crucial, that this truth, is discerned.
I hope this limited information gives you more clarity about John6:53.
The truth of Christ, is offered to all.
The sacrifice of Christ (for his Bride -Eph.5:25), is for his Bride (Rev.21:9-12).
Now...
for the understanding of "many invited, few chosen"...
Do you know the context of this phrase?
It is found within Matthew chapter 22.
What "invitation" is being spoken of, there?
It is an invitation to the marriage feast! (Not an invitation to be anointed)
Who was eventually given an invitation to that spiritual feast?
Matt.22:9-10 reads;
"Therefore go to where the roads exit the city and invite everyone you find to the banquet.’ 10 So those slaves went out on the roads and gathered everyone they found, both evil and good. The wedding banquet was filled with guests."
So,
everyone is "invited" to take in spiritual food, when the marriage feast is served.
Can you see that?
But despite being invited, many do not come.
Many, do not like what they sample. Many do not appreciate, what they find.
And, not all show respect, for their hosts and what is provided (Matt.22:11-13; Luke 10:16).
Do you think, that those who do not appreciate the truths being served,
will be chosen to understand what they are taking in?
What do I mean?
Do you have to be "chosen", in order to understand the marriage feast?
Please think about these scriptures...
"He said, "The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that, "'though seeing, they may not see; though hearing, they may not understand.'" (Luke8:10)
"Then the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Why do You speak to the people in parables?” 11He replied, “The knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. 12Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him." (Matt.13:10-12)
So,
can you see that when spiritual food is provided,
God and Christ choose who gets understanding of that "food"?

"Many", are invited to the marriage feast. We are told that "everyone" who is leaving the city, gets an invitation... "the evil and the good". Rev.22:17 tells us, that the Bride invites all, to take in living water, and that all who hear of that invitation, can share in inviting all they find.
But will all who sample the marriage feast, understand and appreciate what they find there?
No. Only those chosen to have their eyes and heart opened to the truth being offered,
will understand the information that they are considering.

More information about these things, can be found at these links:
There is also much more available at the Blog. Just try the search box.

Regarding the connection between anointing, and being chosen as heirs...
Being anointed by God's spirit, IS the choosing. Anyone or anything, ever anointed, was done so, in order to signify and consecrate God's choosing a purpose for that person or thing.
When God's spirit, anoints a person, it is to assign them their place in God's purpose for His new creation. It establishes God's choosing of that person, to inherit God's work. That purpose and service, can either be carried out faithfully, or not.
This is why Rev.17:14 mentions the progression of three steps... "called, chosen, and faithful" (NOT "invited"). Many can be called to Christ and God through the reading of the Bible. Of these, some are chosen to be a central part of the purpose of the Bible, to be selected as covenant slaves of God and Christ. Not all slaves, prove faithful to their assignment.
All disciples of Christ, enter into service to our Lord.
But there are various assignments. We all must be faithful.
A wife, is also in subjection to, and in the service of, her husband.
Yet, not all servants, are the wife.
The divine calling, choosing, and anointing, is NOT AN INVITATION (Rom.11:29). 
It is not a calling, that can be declined, without consequence.

 The time gap between the choosing of the 12 (John6:70; 13:18) and their anointing with spirit (John16:7; Acts 1:4-5,8; 2:1-4,32-33), can be explained in the symbolism which Jesus uses. A bridegroom chooses a bride, and they are bound by engagement. They are promised in marriage, legally and by contract. But, their union may come at a later time. Such was the case, with the apostles. When the branches of Christ's vine become one with him, they then receive the spirit, and are able to produce "fruit"... "fruit" being both the spoken wisdom of spirit, and those who accept it into themselves. The anointed are the branches (John15:5), not the fruit. The fruit, is what the branches, produce. "Fruit", is the spiritual food that is produced for others (Luke 6:43,45), and at the same time, those who attach themselves to the branches (John13:20), to share in the holy spirit/sap, coming from Christ/the root-vine, through the branches. 
This is why the negative side of this symbolism, shows that the juice of the fruit, is actually the blood of those, who accepted the rotten fruit/deceptive teachings of, and attached themselves to, the wicked "branches" (Rev.14:18-20; Deut.32:32-33; Matt.12:34; Rev.16:13; 2Thess.2:9-10) and it's "root" (John8:44; Rev.9:11).

Please let me know if your needs were cared for...
and if you were able to accept, all that I have sent you.
Love,
Pearl
