We can learn much from the account found at Luke 6:1-5. There it reads:

"Now it happened that He was passing through some grainfields on a Sabbath; and His disciples were picking the heads of grain, rubbing them in their hands, and eating the grain. But some of the Pharisees said, “Why do you do what is not lawful on the Sabbath?” And Jesus answering them said, “Have you not even read what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him, how he entered the house of God, and took and ate the consecrated bread which is not lawful for any to eat except the priests alone, and gave it to his companions?” And He was saying to them, “The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.”
I feel joy and gratitude for what Jesus showed me during the night, and I know I must now share it with you (Matt.10:27; Isa.50:4,5).
I will take one verse/phrase at a time.
Verse 1. "Now it happened that He was passing through some grain fields
on a Sabbath; 
and His disciples were picking the heads of grain, 
rubbing them in their hands, 
and eating the grain."

  In this scene, Jesus and his disciples were very hungry (Matt.12:1). It was the period of time when they were intensely occupied with YHVH's work of preaching truth, foregoing the securities of predictable shelter and food (Luke 12:29,31; Luke 9:58). When they passed through these grain fields and plucked grain, they were not stealing (Deut.23:25), but rather this provision was according to Gods' own Law (Lev.23:22).
  We are then told, that it was the Sabbath. In verse 5 we are told, that Jesus is LORD of the Sabbath. He has authority over all that this day signifies. According to Matt.17:25,26; the Sons of the Kingdom/True Sabbath, are exempt from the "tax" required of "strangers"/those "under Law".
Jesus and his apostles "plucked" the heads of grain, and were "rubbing" them to remove the "chaff" (Jer.12:14-15,16-17; 45:4). Jesus and the apostles have the authority to do this cleansing of the "wheat" (Rev.2:26-27; Matt.3:12; 19:28; 13:38; Mal.3:2-3; 4:1).

Then Jesus and the apostles were "rubbing" this wheat in their own hands, to cleanse it (Eze.16:9).
When prepared, they ate the grain (Isa.50:4; Gal.6:6; Luke 17:8; 8:11).
This was necessary, because it was the only source of food available to them. Surely the religious leaders who were condemning them, were not providing "the proper food at the proper time" to sustain them. Jesus and his apostles relied on the provisions allowed by God, combined with their own authority of being set free of the Law (John 8:36; Matt.17:26; Luke 6:5).

This example is for all sons of the Kingdom. We are indeed free (2Cor.3:17; Gal.5:13) to eat bread from heaven (John 6:51); despite restrictions imposed by men in power (Rom.6:16,22). We, like Christ and the apostles, must not be restrained from our due food (2Thess.2:7).

Verse 2.
"But some of the Pharisees said, “Why do you do what is not lawful on the Sabbath?” 
This is what Jesus was referring to in one of the signs of the end time (Matt.24:20).
Luke 21:34-35,36. Jesus knew what the religious climate would be for his anointed brothers....the test that Satan would bring upon them (Matt.24:24,21-22). The truth being revealed through Christ at the Marriage Feast, would not be tolerated by the opposers (2Tim.4:3); but rather, it would be considered a violation of doctrine and religious authority (Rev.13:17,8)....just as the food Jesus and his apostles gleaned for themselves was also considered, taboo.
We too face a "Sabbath" restriction today. We too, must respond as Jesus did.
We have a right to partake of YHVH's provisions, despite the restrictions and opposition of men in power (Isa.55:1-2,3,10-11). We have been set free from the Laws of men (Isa.58:6-7,8,10-11,12,14; Matt.6:11; John 14:13-14). Awaken and arise!

Verse 3.
"And Jesus answering them said, “Have you not even read what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him?"
  The reference of Jesus here, confirms our situation. It shows that when God's servants are weary of the spiritual battle, are in the midst of enemies, and their needs are not being met by those responsible;
...Then just as David and his men refreshed themselves with what was too Jesus and his apostles also too should we who are also warring in loyalty to God. Those faithful wise virgins who are admitted into the marriage feast, do not have to surrender the oil in their lamps to those in a darkened condition (Matt.25:8-9). Neither should they "pay" for illumination from mere men (Rev.13:17), and allow these to direct them into subjection and darkness (Matt.23:13; 25:10; 5:13-14,15-16; Rev.9:10,6). What men decree as a restrictive Sabbath....God's chosen servants freely partake the fruitage of.

Those doing God's will are worthy of their wages (1Cor.9:9-10;  1Tim.5:18; Luke 10:7). When the survival of God's anointed priests and kings depend upon sustenance forbidden by men (Jesus and the apostles were priests and kings), prohibitions of men are irrelevant (Matt.12:5-6,7-8; Rom.6:16;  1Cor.7:23; Gal.1:10; Col.3:24). The "Sabbath" is to serve the needs of men....not men to serve the Sabbath (Mark 2:27). Even showing mercy to the life of an animal was regarded more highly than the Law (Matt.12:11-12). 

For those sheep who have fallen into a dark pit spiritually (due to the leadership of the wicked Steward --Matt.15:14), and feel it is forbidden by men to partake of those spiritual provisions which might pull you out; See... Jesus is Lord, and his care for you is greater than what men forbid! You are invited to the Marriage of the Lamb! (Rev.19:9; Matt.22:8-9,10)

Verse 4.
"how he entered the house of God, and took and ate the consecrated bread which is not lawful for any to eat except the priests alone, and gave it to his companions?” 
  (Luke 1:32)
YHVH allowed David and his men to eat the "consecrated bread". The greater David is the provider of Bread to his warrior companions (Rev.1:1; John 17:7-8; Rev.11:3; Luke 12:37). It is indeed "consecrated bread", cleansed by Jesus' own hands...the chaff removed (John 6:53,51;  1Cor.15:37; Titus 2:14). It is lawful in God's eyes, for this bread to be eaten by his cleansed priests 
(Rom.2:29; Mal.3:3-4;  1Pet.2:9,5;  2Tim.2:21; Eph.5:26; John 13:10). 
They are, the "house of God" (1Cor.3:9; Eph.2:21).

Our Lord, is the Christ (Rev.19:16,14). It is time to eat what he is giving us (Rev.10:10; 20:12) despite it being, the "Sabbath" (1Cor.10:30; Matt.24:20).
When the marriage feast was due to be dispensed, Jesus foretold that "those invited were not worthy" (Matt.22:8).
As a result, "all those leaving the City" were admonished to attend, though not the original invitees (anointed) Matt.22:9. So too, all those who are leaving Babylon the Great City [Rev.18:4,10; 17:18 --(apostate Jerusalem Rev.11:8)]  in order to obey Jesus (Matt.24:15-16), are welcome to attend and partake of, that end-time spiritual feast. (Luke 17:37) So the "consecrated bread" meant only for the priests, is now being served to all those  no longer restrained by (and leaving) the yoke of the Beast and it's ruling Harlot.

Verse 5.
"And He was saying to them, “The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.
Jesus Christ is our Head, and the highest authority (Phil.2:10; John 3:35; Eph.1:22; Matt.28:18; Col.1:18). We gratefully accept the grace of God (Rom.9:15-16), 
whether men approve, or not (1Cor.7:23;  1Thess.2:4).

Who are the twelve tribes?

Some scriptural thoughts I wrote to an anointed one...

but a word on the 12 tribes....
I know they are not actual physical Jews, according to flesh.
What does it mean to be a Jew in a spiritual sense?
At John 1:47NKJV we see what Jesus had to say about Nathanael...
 "Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him, and said of him, “Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit!”
Because of having the trait of having no deceitfulness in him, Nathanael was credited as being a genuine Israelite/Jew. 
Let's compare that to the 144000 of those designated at genuine spiritual Jews. At Rev.14 we read of them;
"3 And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. 4 These are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they remained virgins. They follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among mankind and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb. 5 No lie was found in their mouths; they are blameless."
Based upon John 1:47NKJV and Rev.14:5 we can learn the foremost trait of a spiritual Jew.

The twelve tribes are also distinguished as receiving the first resurrection (Rev.20:4,5,6).
They are those who are speaking at Rev.6:9-11. The rest of their anointed brethren are separate from them, and will join them after they also sacrifice their lives for the truth. That latter group is the Great Crowd, who are the "rest of the dead" who come to life later. When compared to the traits of the 144000 at Rev.20:4-6; the great crowd goes through the great tribulation (Rev.7:13-14). In contrast to the 144000, the great crowd did not reign with Christ during his 1,000 year kingdom. The great crowd did worship the beast and its image (Rev.1:7-8) but those who stood up to that apostasy and prove victorious, do come to life after the thousand years have ended.
If you are or were a Jehovah's Witness, you now need to learn when the thousand years took place and why that kingdom ended.

Just as the Beasts in Daniel show the attributes of the final Wild Beast (Rev.13:1,2; Dan.7:5,6,4), so too the "tribes" of spiritual Israel have some other traits of the original tribes. 
The book of Revelation reveals the culmination, of the war of Gen.3:15. The "woman" is the New Covenant...the "Promise" by which "seed" are born (Gal.3:29; 4:24,26,28;  1Pet.3:6). That seed, is the twelve tribes of the spiritual "Israel of God".
(If you don't see this, please read )

At Rev.12:1, New Jerusalem is seen as crowned with 12 stars 
(Prov.17:6;  1Pet.5:4;  1Thess.2:19; Prov.4:9; Isa.62:3; 61:3).
This represents the sealed 12 tribes of a full 144000 sons. They are not physical Jews, but spiritual (Rom.2:29; 9:8). 144000 is also symbolic.

"Jacob" is the resurrected Christ, and his twelve "sons" are the apostles. The apostles are the figurative foundation stones of their 12,000 sons each (Eph.2:20; Rev.21:14; 7:4,5-8).
We are built up upon them (their teachings/records), and fleshly Jews have no part in this, unless they belong to Christ, just as we do.
Try to keep in mind that this is a symbolic scroll, and that the number twelve (6+6) is symbolic for witnesses of truth (Rev.14:5; John 8:17). (This is discussed at )
According to Gal.4:30,24 , the physical Jews do not share in the promise of the inheritance, unless they become sealed anointed.
Do you think that fleshly Jews still have special favor from God, regarding the inheritance of Abraham 
(Acts 13:45,46; Matt.21:43; Jer.35:17; Matt.23:37-38; Luke 19:41,44; Jer.31:32)?

When I think of spiritual Jacob/Israel.....and the "fathers" of the tribes of Spiritual Israel (the twelve apostles),
I remember Matt.19:27-28; Luke 22:30; Dan.7:9,22; Rev.20:4; 7:4.
Underneath the judgment authority of these twelve, will be the 144000. After 144000 are sealed out of all those chosen (Matt.22:14) these 144000 will then also be given authority to judge... the world upon which they rule....(1Cor.6:2;  2Tim.2:12; Rev.5:10).
Symbolically, each apostle has a gate to the Holy City...each gate admitting a symbolic 12,000...each apostle
determining who will enter their gate and join those who make up New Jerusalem... coming under the family of their tribe (Rev.21:12,14).

How is Rom.14:12; John 5:22; and 1Cor.6:2 all true at once?
Jesus is clearly sharing the sealing of "Israel", with his apostles. Each "father" gets to determine which "sons" will comprise his tribe.
Yet we know that although this authority is given to Christ and the apostles,
they do nothing of their own initiative, but seek guidance and approval from the Father.

Please let me know your thoughts on who make up the 12 tribes of the Israel of God.

I believe that all the advice Jesus gives in Rev., chapters 1-3, is for all  anointed;
....especially during the end-time....
no matter which tribe or symbolic Congregation of "seven" we belong to. 
Christ's words to each congregation is not wholly to each individual, but rather he is giving commendation to those acting faithfully, and to other individuals that are not acting faithfully. Each congregation faces their own set of circumstances. As we ourselves face those circumstances, we can see how to prove faithful and how to avoid unfaithfulness.

Love in Christ,

"Wormwood" today


Hey I'm doing a religion project and I was curious on
1.what is the code of conduct for jahovahs witnesses?
2. What are practices for this religion?
Thank you!

Below is the reply I wrote when I was originally asked this question. I am inserting this initial section, twelve years later. My reason for this insertion, is that the answer to the questions above, have changed since I originally responded. The reason for the change, is that the leadership of Jehovah's Witnesses have made changes. 
We must logically accept, that any change in tenet is indicative that the original tenet was faulty. Jesus described such changes in teaching, as a fulfillment of symbolic rotten fruit (Matt.7:15,20). Those who teach from genuine spirit and truth, provide teachings that last. That is the meaning of symbolic fine fruit (John 15:16; Matt.24:35). Fruit that does not last, rots away and needs to be replaced... just like the teaching and rules of Jehovah's Witnesses.


This is a huge question when it comes to "Jehovah's Witnesses".
I'll do my best.
I will respect that you are not specifically asking for religious beliefs, so I will only refer to them as is necessary to answer your questions.

First off, if you asked a practicing "witness" your first question, their reply would likely be brief and simple. They would likely say that their "code of conduct" was all the things which Christ directed, and that this "code" is founded upon the scriptures.

The problem with that assumption, is as follows...
Like all Organized religions, "Jehovah's Witnesses" believe that their doctrine is based upon the Truth of the Bible...that they are loyal to the Scriptures...and that they worship in harmony with Holy Spirit, and the tenets of the Bible. Like all Organized religions who have this belief, they would be wrong.

The "Code of Conduct" for witnesses, can not be separated from their "practices". All "Witnesses" are expected to make their religion, their life, completely.
Those practices, and that Code, are as follows:

Conformity to all current "organizational arrangements" is expected by all, as directed by those in authority, such as:

  dress and grooming:
       MALES: (full formal-wear when engaged in any public religious activity.
                      No hair long enough to touch the collar. No beards, in the USA.
                      Until recently, there used to be a white shirt requirement for giving a talk/sermon.
                      Dress and grooming specifications, while firm, differ in various Countries.
   FEMALES: No denim; skirts must be below the knee; nothing tight; high neckline.
                      Cars and homes also, must reflect diligence and a degree of affluence.
      Behavior: Five meetings per week, plus attendance at "service" meetings as often as
                      possible. (They are normally held twice daily.) "Field service" to
                      follow that meeting, for as many hours as possible.
                      Attendance at meetings should be even if one is subjected to
                      mortal threat. Arrival at meetings is expect to be 20 minutes before the
                      meeting starts. Children also, are to learn to imitate the parents, in
                      developing self-control enough to sustain rapt attention at meetings.
                      Meetings are to be fully prepared for; by a thorough preview of the
                      materials to be covered. Participation is expected. In addition,
                      there is to be a weekly "family study" conducted by the family head
                      (male if existing) in a member's own home.
                      Children are expected to do as well as possible in school, but are strongly
                      discouraged from pursuing higher education. They are to avoid any
                      friendships with the opposite sex, and dating is prohibited until the
                      intentional pursuit of marriage. They are to refrain from an extra-
                      curricular school activities. Their goal in life should be a career going
                      door-to-door proselytizing and that should begin at as early an age as
                      Men are only respected if they actively seek to "climb the ladder" within
                      their Congregations. A lack of diligence in this regard puts marital prospects in doubt.
                      Advancement in the organization is achieved in steps, according to how well a
                      man conforms to "organizational arrangements" and provides a strong example
                      as one who is in unquestioning loyalty to those who direct.
                      Women are only respected if they are completely directed by the male figure
                      in their life, are always mild-mannered, have "exemplary" children,
                      are skilled as housewives, and spend a good deal of their time proselytizing.
                      All "Witnesses" must remain current in present doctrine. They must completely
                      espouse whatever that current doctrine is. If they fail to keep current with
                      changes in doctrine...perhaps believing something outdated...they run the
                      risk of being expelled from their Congregation, Family, and Friends.
                      In addition, there are "Assemblies" and "Conventions" to attend periodically.
                      Leisure activities are to be monitored by the standards of the organization,
                      which are exhaustive. Leisure and vacationing is to include proselytizing. 

Some of these expectations are rooted in the Bible....most are not. An in-depth examination of all the doctrines and "arrangements" which "Jehovah's Witnesses" practice, and how these are NOT based on scripture, would be an exhaustive article indeed. I will not attempt to cover all of them with you, but here is a brief sampling:

                         This designation/title has a set hour requirement for proselytizing.
                         Those who enroll are given special privileges and esteem. This "arrangement" is
                         not found in the Bible, and in fact, violates Bible principles.
                         (Luke 21:1-2,3-4; James 2:1-2,3-4; Matt.6:1-2,3-4; Mark 12:42-43,44)
                         A count is made of attendance at various meetings, as well as how many
                         "partake" at the annual "Memorial" of Christ's death.
                         This is also in violation of scripture (1Chron.21:1; Rev.7:9).
                         Bible interpretations are often published without scriptural backing. It is sourced
                         in interpretations by men, and changes are made repeatedly as a result. There is to
                         be no "independent" study, nor comparison with other doctrine, including past 
                         Jehovah's Witness doctrine. This also violates scripture 
                         (Matt.15:9; Isa.29:13; Col.2:20-21,22-23;  1John4:1;  2Cor.13:3).
                         All are expected to be loyal to these doctrinal changes, above loyalty to scripture.
                         Any who express disagreement based upon scripture, are labeled as 
                         disloyal to God Himself. Such a dissenter will be expelled.
                         This also betrays the Bible.
         (1John4:1; Acts 17:11;  1Thess.5:21;  2Cor.11:3-4,12-13,20; Rom.6:16;
          1Cor.7:23; Gal.1:10; Col.3:24; John 4:24; Rom.1:25; Acts 5:29)

Jesus left his disciples with the following command:
"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you". (Matt.28:19,20)

"Jehovah's Witnesses" break both of Christ's commands. They teach all to observe all the commands of men, and they baptize additionally, in the name of their Organization. They expect one's dedication, to be to them, rather than exclusively to God (which also violates God's Command). 
Mark 12:30; Isa.42:8; Deut.11:16,18; Luke 4:8; Matt.4:10)

I hope my reply to you has helped satisfy your need for information.
If you need something further, please follow up.
All the best for success with your project,


The Helper

"This past weekend i read a response to a readers comments about how well you use the scriptures and i wondered just how you come up to an accurate scriptural answer, i know you pray to Jehovah every time you get a question, can you please tell me how you manage to come up with so many scriptures all at once?"

In answer, I could simply say that I have all the relevant scriptures at my disposal by means of Holy Spirit.
But I think you would like more detail.
Jesus said, "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you."  John 14:26
The way that I experience the "remembrance" of "all that I (Jesus) said" that as soon as I consider a question, my mind begins to flood with scriptures. I believe that scripture consists of all the things that Jesus said, for; he is  the "Word of God" (John 1:1,14; 17:17). 

Thankfully, as scriptures come to mind; their application to the question at hand also becomes clear ("He will teach you all things"). Thankfully, the "flow" of scripture and their application, come at a rate that I can work fast as I can type, the scriptures and thoughts come. Sometimes what I am being taught runs ahead of my ability to write, and I must strain not to forget it all. Sometimes the point comes first, and then the scripture....sometimes the scripture comes first, and then, the point of it.
I usually do this work for many hours each day (often forgetting to eat), and it can become very exhausting mentally. Sometimes I must take a rest (Mark.6:30-31,32). But it is, a wonderful, joyful work! As often as I re-read what I have written, there are more scriptures given, to add. With added scripture comes additional understanding.

I do not always know where a scripture is located, but I will remember it word for word. In that case, I quickly open a google window...type in the words of that verse, and it's location in the Bible, pops up in the search results. In this way, I can cite (in my reply) the same scripture I have received, so that others can also consider it.
I often realize how the "Jehovah's Witness" indoctrinated mind might react to a particular point, due to my years of personal indoctrination (1Cor.9:19-20,21-22). In that case, another scripture will come to mind to help to prove the correction which ther indoctrination requires. I'll include the scripture that is given to adjust that perspective and to accept (on the basis of scripture), the previous scriptural point that was made (2Tim.3:16). 
I do this in hopes of reaching even those who have already been indoctrinated according to "strongly entrenched" error (2Cor.10:5,4).

I often learn while  I am writing, because very  often I do not know the answer to a question as I begin to write. But as the scriptural answers come to me through writing a reply...I am learning with clarity. It seems I have even begun to think along the lines of scripture at all times. Every thought, reaction, even while I sleep and is all according to the scriptures. I know that may sound strange, but I think this may be what the Bible means, when it speaks of "walking by spirit" (Gal.5:16,25; 6:16; Rom.8:5,4,1-2,9-10,11,14,16-17;  1John3:24; Matt.10:27).

Some have written me, commending me for my "extensive research". I smile at that because as you can see, I don't do that. Except for looking up where a scripture is located, and perhaps finding historical proof for what spirit has already explained; that's all I find, and add. I seek historical proof for some explanations, because there are readers who require such evidence...which is fine with me. I am here to do my best with whatever the sheep seem to sincerely require.

Faithful anointed ones truly are, just a vessel (2Cor.4:7). We have truth and spirit poured into us (2Cor.3:5;  1John2:20,24), according to the measure that we pour it out for others (Matt.5:16;  1Tim.4:15-16;  2Tim.4:2). 
Like Jesus, we are a messenger...nothing more (Matt.10:20; John 12:49-50; 5:30; 8:28; 7:16). The more we learn to depend upon Holy Spirit and pass it onto others...the more we receive (Matt.13:12; 25:29;  1Thess.5:4-5,6-7,8-9,10-11). This brings glory to the heavenly Father 
(John 15:8; 7:16-17,18; 16:13-14; 8:47a; John 16:13; Rev.22:6).
If we should depend upon our own thinking or that of human doctrines (John 7:18; Matt.25:9; Rev.13:17)....the less spirit we we attempt to bring glory to ourselves. Without spirit, we return to the darkness, where we can do nothing at all (John15:4-5;  1John2:28,24; John 12:35; Eph.4:18:  1John2:11).

Next time I will reply to your second question.
Thank you for asking,

Who is Wormwood ?


Hello Pearl,
 I noticed that in the last two posts, you used Rev.8:10 three times, with various applications.
We have been taught that the "fallen star" "Wormwood", is "Christendom". I will give you the three places you used that scripture:
1.  "To accept power, riches, or dominion within Satan's world, would also
      cause an anointed one to "fall" (1John 2:15,16,17; Rev.2:5; Rev.8:10; Rev.9:1; 12:4; Mark 10:42,43).
2.  "There is SOME truth in it (Rev.8:10)."
3.  "We saw at Matt.24:24, that Satan is going to try to mislead the Chosen in the time of the end,
       by means of Powerful, prominent, "fallen" anointed (Rev.8:10,11; Rev.13:11;
         2Thess. 2:1,2,4; Luke 12:45).

Please prove by scriptures, that the "fallen star" is really anointed ones who rule. And then, please explain how Rev.8:10 applies in the 3 ways you have used it.


I am glad that you spoke up when having trouble seeing exactly what my writings mean. The disciples of Jesus also did this....Yet others, just walked away. Jesus rewarded those who were willing to "keep on asking" (Matt.13:36; 24:3; 7:7).
First, lets establish more clearly, who the anointed are.
Gal.3:29 reads:
"If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise."
(Rom.4:13; 8:17; 9:8)
Can you see from these scriptures, that the 144000 are considered "Abraham's seed", and "heirs" of the promise given to Abraham? Abraham was promised that his "seed", would inherit the earth, and bless all of mankind (Gen.22:17,18; 28:13,14). This "seed", was symbolized by heavenly "stars" (Gen.15:5; 26:4; Dan.12:3). The Greek scriptures also speak of these heavenly bodies of "light" which are to shine during the  "night" (1Pet. 2:5,9; Matt.5:14,16; Phil.2:15NIV ; Rom.13:12), as "stars" ...both the faithful (Heb.11:12; Dan.12:3;  1Tim. 4:16) and the unfaithful (Jude 1:13).
And so, when we wish to understand the symbols of the book of Revelation (Rev.1:1 "presented it in signs"), we must allow God's Word to give it's own interpretation (Gen.40:8;  2Pet. 1:20;  2Tim. 3:16,17).
Aside from the scriptures we have already considered, we can go to the words of the glorified Christ to learn more about these "stars". (Rev.1:16,20; 2:1; 3:1; 12:1)
According to those scriptures, Jesus "holds" "seven stars" in his "right hand". He then tells us that these "stars", are "angels" of the "seven" "Congregations" (Mark 12:25;  1Cor. 15:51). If we harmonize this with the rest of the previous scriptures, we know that these stars are "heirs" of the promises given to Abraham....the anointed. For, Jesus would not "hold" in his right hand of power, and use as beacons of light, counterfeit "Christians" not in Covenant with him, would he? What "light" would such agents of darkness have? (Matt.6:23; Eph.4:18).
No.....the "star" "angels" in Jesus' right hand, are the anointed in Covenant with him.
At Rev.12:7 we see that there are "angels"/messengers "battling" along with "Michael" (2Cor. 10:3,4,5).
This battle is also pictured, at Rev.19:11,13,14. Those "battling" alongside Christ, wear "white robes". These warriors are anointed (see Rev.19:8; 6:11; 17:14). At Rev.19:15 it tells us that Jesus here, will "strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron". Those riding with him then, have the same right (Rev.2:26,27). So according to scriptures, these "star"/"angels", are conquering anointed.

Now to get to the "star" at Rev.8:10....
"The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing as a lamp, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water."
Let's look at the rest of Jesus' description of this "star". It is also said to be "blazing as a lamp".
How does this help our identification?...
In Matt.25:1, the "kingdom of the heavens" is compared to 10 virgins (Rev.14:4) with lamps (Luke 12:35; Matt.5:15,16). Again, these are anointed ones. If one of these virgins was "blazing" as a lamp...surely it's teachings would be bright, and seen by many over a wide area.
If we continue to read into verse 11:
"The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many people died from the water, because it had been made bitter."........
Can you reason that previous to the "fall" of this "star", all the waters beneath this star (John 4:14), were wholesome?
Even after this star falls and defiles the waters under it, the waters are said to be partially poisoned (one third).
Does this all sound like "Christendom" to you?
If we return to Rev.8:10...
"The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water."
According to Matt.5:19; a "great" star, would be one who was doing and teaching the one Truth from Christ (Eph.4:5; John 14:6). We are told that this great "star" has enough authority, to fall upon "the rivers and on the springs of water". Christ tells us that these are the teachings of his truth (John 4:14; 7:37,38). These pure waters do not come from, nor are they under the power of, "Christendom".
Finally, Rev.8:11 tells us that the name of this "star", is now "Wormwood" (meaning: bitter). It has become "bitter'... unfaithful (Heb.12:15; Isa.1:21; 59:14;  2Pet. 3:17).
If we allow God's Word to teach us about this identity, it becomes clear that this is a name he calls the unfaithful among his own Covenanted people.
(Jer.2:13,19,20,21,22,32,37; 9:15; 23:15; Amos 5:7; 6:12; Deut.29:18; Lam.3:15,19,40,48,49,50,51). 
(Read all
There is no such thing as "apostate Christendom"....for, "Christendom" was never anointed, nor in Covenant with God, that she could become "apostate". "Christendom" could never become an adulterous Harlot....for she was never in a pure marital covenant with God.
False "Christians" are Satan's Counterfeit...A decoy to prevent the Chosen from seeing their current circumstances under the genuine apostasy, those unfaithful who really were in Covenant with Yhvh God. Jesus tells us that the "wicked Steward" IS one of HIS SLAVES (Luke 12:42,45).  
2Thess. 2:4,3 makes crystal clear, that the end-time apostasy, is within and over, God's Temple of anointed ones (1Cor. 3:16).

When Rev.8:11 tells us that "many people died from the water", this tells us that previous to taking in the waters of "Wormwood"...they were living. Waters that provide life, are traced to Jesus Christ (John 4:14). Do you believe this is the case with those taking in waters from Christendom? 
If we look once again at Rev.8:10...
"The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water."
....this anointed star has charge of the "light" being shed as well as the spiritual "waters" being offered, throughout the world. Why? Because only the "Steward"/Gov.Bdy. has had the authority to determine what all are fed (Luke 12:42).
Finally, by falling "from heaven" (Rev.8:10; 2:5), it is established that this is one who had  been "enrolled in the heavens" (Heb.12:23; Eph.2:6)(Phil.2:15; Dan.12:3), and can not possibly be anyone belonging to "apostate Christendom", even if there were such a thing.

Hopefully by a consideration of all the previous scriptures, you can clearly see that the "Great Star", "blazing as a lamp" is a prominent anointed one. By reading that this one "falls" (Luke 12:45; Rev.2:5; 6:13; 8:10; 9:1), and thereby poisons the spiritual waters it's sheep are partaking of; you can deduce the implications and repercussions (which are symbolically expounded upon in the rest of Revelation).
Now for the places in which I referred to that verse:
1."To accept power, riches, or dominion within Satan's world, would also
      cause an anointed one to "fall" (1John 2:15,16,17; Rev.2:5; Rev.8:10; Rev.9:1; 12:4; Mark 10:42,43).
Hopefully you can see that if an anointed Steward broke Christ's command at Mark 10:42,43 [as well as John 13:34 (Luke 12:45;  1John 4:20); Matt.23:10,8,11;  1John 2:15; John 17:16] they would "fall" from Christ's approval (Matt.25:11,12; 7:23; Rev.20:10).

2.  "There is SOME truth in it (Rev.8:10)."
I agree that reference is a bit obscure. I am now referring to Rev.8:10 C.
"The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water."
My point is that even after "Wormwood" defiles the waters of Truth, only "a third" are poisoned at first. This means that the teachings, temporarily still contain mostly Truth! So we would expect that even though the "waters" have become unsafe for a "third".....there is still "SOME truth in it.".
  Waters stand for life-imparting teachings (Rev.22:17), but they also stand for peoples (Rev.17:15). 
This symbol applies to both, because the teachings within us, mark the very nature of our soul within the regard of God.
So... there is more to this "third" who become poisoned. God's prophecies highlight the identity of the "third", because that symbolic third consists of those who will repent and advance the purposes of God in the time of the End (Zech.13:8-9; Dan.11:33,35), though for a time, they are robbed of life in a spiritual sense (Rev.13:7,10; Col.2:8; Rev.3:1) because of their being deceived for a time. The other two-thirds are considered spiritually dead already, as concerns God's purpose and will.

3.  "We saw at Matt.24:24, that Satan is going to try to mislead the Chosen in the time of the end, 
       by means of Powerful, prominent, "fallen" anointed (Rev.8:10,11; Rev.13:11; 
        2Thess. 2:1,2,4; Luke 12:45).
Matt.24:24 reads:
"For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect."
What determines whether or not it is possible?
Are the elect relying on human doctrine and an organizational Idol? 
Are they relying on Scripture and Spirit (John 4:23-24)?
If they are relying on an image of idolatry, rather than God...
...then certainly, their being deceived is possible (Matt.19:25,26).
The original Greek word for "Christs" is....."anointed ones".
Again, these are found among "Jehovah's Witnesses". Verse 24 continues that these false anointed brothers (2Tim. 3:5;  2Pet. 2:1,2,3) will "arise" in power, and "perform great signs and wonders". This is for a certainty a parallel to the "false prophet" of Rev.13:13,14,11; Rev.19:20.
And then we are told that if it is at all possible, these "false christs and false prophets" WILL mislead the "elect"/anointed (Dan.8:12; Rev.13:7,10; Col.2:8; Luke 21:21,24).
Can you see that these deceptions come upon the Chosen, AFTER they are anointed and considered by God's Word, as already belonging to the "elect"/"chosen"? (Matt.24:24,25)
If you know any anointed ones personally, they will attest to the commonality, that all of us were not fooled by "Christendom" in the least, previous to our anointing. More so, after it (1John 2:20,27)!
Therefore it is unlikely that this masterful deception (backed by all of Satan's power--2Thess. 2:9; Rev.13:13; Matt.24:24) is "Christendom".
This dangerous trap to mislead the Chosen, would have to be baited with much Truth, in order to ensnare the Holy Ones......perhaps with as much as two-thirds Truth?
And finally, 2Thess.2 confirms to us, that this last day deception (2Thess. 2:1,2,3) (when a deceiving power takes over --2Thess.2:4)....takes rulership in the midst of the Chosen Ones, God's true Temple 
(2Thess. 2:4)....not in "Christendom"
See  1Cor. 3:16,9; Heb.9:24; Eph. 2:22;  1Pet. 2:5.
Finally I will add this link that I wrote more recently. It interprets Rev.12:4.

I hope these thoughts address your questions. If there is anything else, please let me know.
May our Heavenly Father bless your pursuit of life and truth,



A Comment:
While you may have your differences with the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses; you certainly have not lost your touch with the holy scriptures. You are as sharp as ever when it comes to quoting and sighting scriptures. Bless you and I hope, that you can work out your differences with the J.W.'s. Perhaps, you, a woman should be considered as the first woman President of the Watchtower, Bible and Tract Society????

Hello Samantha,
Thank you for your very gracious comment!
Although it soothes some of the vicious slander I am also subjected to (Matt.10:25),
I think of the example of Jesus...
When the people sought to make him king, he "withdrew" (John 6:14-15). The reason why, is stated
at John 18:36. To accept power, riches, or dominion within Satan's world, would also
cause an anointed one to "fall" (1John2:15-16,17; Rev.2:5; 8:10; 9:1; 12:4; Mark 10:42-43).
This is why the leaders of the WT, are considered by God to be a traitorous Harlot who betrayed Him and broke His Holy Covenant, in order to enter one with Satan 
(Rev.9:1 b; Rev.13:11; Isa.28:15;  1Tim.4:1-2; Hosea 6:10). 
This is a test that all 144000 are subjected to, as Jesus was (Matt.4:8-9;  1Cor.4:8,14;  1John2:15).
Pride is one of the hardest tests (Mark 9:33-34; Matt.16:21-22,23), within Satan's long gantlet/gamut of testing which he subjects each of the "woman's seed" to (Luke 22:31; Rev.12:17; 2:10;  1Pet.5:8-9,10).

I thank you for your appreciation of the food the Father is providing us (James 1:17; John 12:50; Matt.10:20). The kingdom we all must look forward to, is not here now....but is the one to come 
(Heb.13:14; 11:10; Rev.21:2; Rom.8:18-19,21,25; Rev.12:10; 20:4; 14:1; John 16:22-33).
Love in Christ,

The WT does not give any freedom to anointed women, as regards sharing what Holy Spirit is giving them
(Gal.3:28; John 15:5; Matt.7:19). Yet we do not seek the approval of men 
(Rom.2:29; Gal.1:10;  2Cor.10:18; John 12:43;  1Thess.2:4;  1Pet.4:11)
They do not give that freedom of speech to any anointed, except the members of the Governing Body.
But if you would like to see what God's Word says about it,
I recommend...
(Psalm 37:7,10-11,12-13,14-15,16-17,18-19,20-21,22)

Why does God allow Suffering?

Hello Pearl,
 Why does God allow all the bad things in the world to happen? Surely He has the power to put an end to it.


This is a thought provoking question.
If you are one of Jehovah's Witnesses, you have heard it said that the reason why the God of Love (1John4:8) has not yet ended the groaning of all creation (Rom.8:22), is because mankind has not yet suffered long enough under Satan's rule, in order to learn that we need God's sovereignty. 
Think about what a contradiction that is! It asserts that God IS Love...and yet He is leaving us to suffer, until we finally get it through our thick skulls, that leaving Him hurts us (Rom.8:20; Gen.3:17-18,19,24); and that having Satan's dominion over us (which Adam and Eve chose Gen.3:13,17) is a failure. 
Hmmm. That may seem like a reasonable explanation to many. But, what is reasonable to men, is irrelevant (Prov.14:12; Isa.40:13-14;  1Cor.2:14). All that matters is what God Himself says (John 17:17; Rom.3:4).

If we return to Romans 8:22...
"FOR WE KNOW that the whole creation has been groaning together in pain together until now."
In truth, is there anyone alive that really needs to be told that life today is frustrating and futile?

When God told Adam and Eve that they would have a horrible life, and then die;
didn't they and their children, see it happen?
Is not the miserable existence and death of each one of us, proof enough that Satan is an unfit sovereign?
What does God's Word say?

"FOR WE KNOW that all creation keeps on groaning together and being in pain together until now."

Do we really need 6,000 years to realize that life is futile?
...that man/Satan rule is a failure?
Please, look again at the first three words of Romans 8:22.

Certainly, Satan's advice in Eden, was a lie,
-AND WE ALREADY KNOW IT. wasn't bad enough for Satan to bait our original parents into a death trap with his lies,
but now that we are all ensnared in the same deceptive web,
we are believing him again.......that things are so good that we actually need 6,000 years to prove otherwise.

If you can just choose one human being on this whole planet that you think has a great life, even from all of history,
do you think that by the end of their life,
they would still claim that life is perfect?
Even if they were rich and beautiful and smart and powerful,
.......they had family problems, or body guards, or their little girl died of leukemia.

"FOR WE KNOW that all creation keeps on groaning together and being in pain together until now."

Satan would have us believe otherwise, wouldn't he?
So would the Wicked Steward (Matt.24:45,48-49,50-51; Luke 12:45-46)
They paint YHVH as a spiteful God, who is deriving some sort of satisfaction from watching us suffer without him.
That is the subconscious message that reaches our mind,
when we accept the false God-dishonoring, blasphemous doctrine:
...that the reason the end is not here yet, is because Satan's rule needs to be proven a failure...
...that we need to realize our reliance on, and need for God enough....
...that we have to see that the "knowledge of good and bad" really results in pain and death.
...that God is not yet satisfied that we have suffered enough.


Do we really doubt the reality of the bad consequences of sin?
Satan surely wants us to believe that we do.
He wants us to believe that God is delaying the end, because God thinks we need to suffer long enough....
 to get it through our thick skulls that we need Him,
 and that life without him ends in futility.

The universal mind of humanity is being crushed under anxious care.
NO ONE needs to be told that we are "enslaved to futility" (Rom.8:20)....and this we know since Adam and Eve.

"FOR WE KNOW that all creation keeps on groaning together and being in pain together until now."
ACCORDING TO GOD....Do we now already "know", or not?

SATAN certainly doesn't care if we suffer while he keeps his hold on the world.
He wants us to believe that our heavenly Father is just like him.
Another lie.

Our Father was and is, greatly grieved at mankind's fall and it's consequences.
Don't you hear His tone of voice when He said, "What is this you have done!?!?" Gen.3:13
His heart is in constant grief, each and every day since then,
as He observes all the suffering and deaths of every living thing, including all the human friends He has come to know (Gen.6:5-6; James 2:23; John 16:27; Matt.10:29).


Satan wants us to believe that
all the guiding truths which God has given us within prophecy, (which show us the end of all matters)...
will be revealed within Satan's own realm, the world.
Here Satan is, creating a phony drama on a stage he has total control of (1John5:19; Rev.12:9)....
to distract us away from the reality of the truth.......once again.

God is not waiting for activity within the Nations, Politics, False Religion, or Commercial economics.
This is not what the Bible teaches us.

"For the eager expectation of the creation is waiting for the revealing of the sons of God." Rom.8:19

Can you see that what we are all waiting for, is the Kingdom Heirs to be made complete in number, refined, sealed, perfected, unveiled, and installed?
"When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the witness they had borne. 10 They cried out with a loud voice, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” 11 Then they were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brothers should be complete, who were to be killed as they themselves had been."

"The LORD will extend your mighty scepter from Zion, saying, "Rule in the midst of your enemies! Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet." (Ps.110:2,1)
"For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power." (1Cor.15:25,24)
There are still enemies of Christ (Phil.3:18;  2Cor.11:13; Rev.2:2;  2Thess.2:2-3,8).
All his enemies, have not yet been subjected to Christ (2Cor.10:5; Rev.19:11,14,8; 12:11).

Once this happens,
it can finally end!!!
Yes, that is what GOD tells us!

  "And I heard a loud voice in heaven say:
“Now have come to pass the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ, because the accuser of our brothers has been hurled down, who accuses them day and night before our God! 11 And THEY (the sealed anointed) CONQUERED HIM (Satan) because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their witnessing, and they did not love their souls even in the face of death." Rev.12:10-11; Mark 8:35)

Do you see what we are really waiting for, according to God?
The "Watchtower" teaches that Mankind has tried every possible form of government, and that this was necessary for the reality of Jer.10:23; and Ec.8:9 to be proven. They assert that since each form of government has been proven a failure, the judicial basis was set for the arrival of Christ's "Thousand Year" kingdom, in 1914
Not so.
Ps.110:1-2 reveals that Christ rules "in the midst of his enemies". He has been ruling since his ascension into heaven 
(1Cor.15:25; Mark 16:19; Luke 22:69; Ps.110:1; 1Cor.15:25; Matt.28:18). 
Through the kings of Zion...
 (Ps.110:2;  2Cor.10:3-5; 6:7; Rom.13:12; Isa.2:3; Mal.2:7; Eph.6:10-12,13-15,16-17;  2Tim.2:12; Rev.5:9-10), 
...Christ has been "subduing his enemies" of truth, by the truth (Gal.4:16; John 8:40; Mark 8:35;  2Thess.2:8; Rev.19:14-15; Prov.2:6; Eph.6:17; Heb.4:12; Rev.19:15), which is also spoken through his ambassadors (Phil.3:20-21;  2Cor.5:19-20,15; 3:6; 6:1-2; Mal.2:7;  1Cor.4:1;  1Pet.4:10; Titus 2:11;  1Tim.2:4). 

All forms of religious deception over God's people 
(John 8:44; Rev.12:7; Heb.1:7,14; 2:16; 1:7; Rev.11:5; Jer.5:14; Luke 21:15; 10:19;  1John2:13; Rev.12:11), 
must be subjugated under Christ's feet (1Cor.15:24-25), after which, he hands his own kingdom, over to God
Only then, does God's eternal Kingdom, commence (1Cor.15:27-28). 
God entrusts His eternal Kingdom, into the hands of Christ and his chosen and faithful kings (Luke 22:29; Rev.3:21; Matt.28:18; Dan.7:13-14,22), including those who have fought and won the last of Christs battles, Armageddon (Rev.17:14; 19:11,14,16; Luke 10:19; Matt.23:33).

Which is the last kingdom to fight against Christ at Armageddon... his last enemy?
There is one more form of government Satan is now empowering, that is "different" from those prior to it. 
It is able to "trample" and cause spiritual death, to God's own people 
(Dan.7:23; Luke 21:24,22) 
(1Cor.15:26,55; Rev.9:10,7; Eze.2:6;  1Cor.15:55-56,57-58; Rev.12:11). 
The "difference" within that last lethal kingdom, is depicted, at Dan.2:33,41-42. 

All the previous kingdoms which persecuted God's people, symbolically consisted only of metal (Dan.2:32).
The "difference" which the last kingdom possesses, is that the fourth kingdom/Beast, also contains "clay", along with the metal, iron. That alliance contains God's sons (Isa.64:8), helping to rule over and persecute their brothers in Christ (1John4:20; 3:12; John 16:2; Luke 12:45; Rev.17:6; 13:11,15; 11:7).
It is only after this final type of kingdom is conquered (Rev.12:10-11) and meets with failure, that the eternal Kingdom of God, arrives (Dan.2:34,44; 7:14,18,22).

The fourth spiritually lethal kingdom arises, after Satan's release from the Abyss.....
(Rev.20:7-8; 16:13-14; 17:14; 12:7,11; 11:7; 6:9-11; Rom.6:5).
  - (satans-short-period-of-time)
Through the fourth and last kingdom, Satan successfully tramples God's Chosen people. They are trampled into submissive captivity and slavery to the Beast during the Great Tribulaltion. Upon awakening, they need to repent, slave for the truth of Christ, and join him in righteous Battle.
(Col.2:8; Rev.13:7-8,10; Luke 21:24; Rev.11:2; Matt.5:13; Luke 18:8; 17:26-27; Rev.12:15;  1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13-14) 
(Eze.22:30; 13:5; Jer.5:1; Isa.59:16; 64:7; Job 14:6-9; Eze.17:21-22,23-24,23; Mark 4:30-32; Zech.4:10; Eze.36:8; Dan.2:34,45; Zech.4:7) 
(Dan.8:25;  2Thess.2:8; Rev.17:14; Matt.10:20), 
<<(In response to Satan's release and successful deceptions; 
Christ, and then his faithful "woman"/"two witnesses"/angel messengers/faithful witnesses to follow, 
will also arise 
Rev.11:3-4; 12:15-17,6,14,7; 17:14) (earth-swallows-satans-river)
---- [For understanding about the woman being in the wilderness, 
       please see Part A, paragraph 4, at this link: baptism ]

It is the fourth kingdom, initially consisting of Iron (Dan.2:33), that tramples the holy ones into subjection, in the time of the end (Dan.2:40). The fourth kingdom develops into a combination, within it's feet and "toes", iron and clay (Dan.2:33,42). 
The ten "toes" of it's feet, are also the "ten kings"/"horns", belonging to the symbolic Beast of Revelation (Rev.17:12-14). 
The "kings of the earth" (Greek meaning "Earth") are kings which should belong to Christ (Rev.1:5; 5:10; 19:16; John 18:36; 17:16) (kings-of-earth), but they have rebelliously surrendered their royal authority and power, to the Beast (Rev.17:12-13; Jer.9:25-26; Amos 9:7;  1Cor.10:11).

By these things, we begin to learn why this Beast is "different" (Dan.7:23).
It's horns, are the ten "kings of the earth"/clay (Rev.16:15-16; Dan.2:44), some of whom have accepted official position as commanders within the Iron/Gentile Beast, supporting it's blasphemies 
(Rev.13:1,5-6; Rom.2:24; Isa.52:5;  2Pet.2:1-2,3).

Both terms.... "clay", and "kings of earth", reveal the "difference" which the last kingdom power possesses (which power, successfully tramples God's people, causing them to become dead in their sins (Eph.2:1-2,4-5; Col.2:13; Rev.3:1-3; 11:11-12; 4:1; Eze.37:3-8,9-10; Rev.7:9; Matt.5:19).
   After God's refining discipline (Zech.13:9; Mal.3:1-3), "one-third" of them repent (and are killed for their faithfulness Rev.11:7)...
 (Rev.7:3; 9:4; 3:19; 14:1; 22:3) (Zech.13:9; Rev.9:18,20), 
The repentant and victorious over the mark of the Beast, 
then battle along with Christ at Armageddon Rev.17:14; 19:11,14,8; 7:14) 
  - (mark-of-beast).

When that decisive battle which is now being fought is won, the final foe of Christ will be "brought to nothing" (1Cor.15:24-25,26,54-55,56-57,58).
The final powers of death will themselves be consigned to the "second death", the "lake of fire" (Rev.20:10,14-15). The last four entities of power who resist God's Kingdom, will be destroyed forever (1Cor.15:24-25,26).

So, how do the terms, "kings of the earth", and "Clay"
reveal what is unique to the last kingdom?

Satan has been ruling the world since Eden.
He is still ruling the world, and so, he is
"deceiving the entire inhabited earth" (Rev.12:9).
Within that deceived "earth", are "Jehovah's Witnesses" (Rev.17:8,13; 13:8).

Only the anointed, even have a chance of seeing truth through the darkness....

 see Isa.43:
10 “YOU are my witnesses,” is the utterance of YHVH, “even my servant whom I have CHOSEN, in order that YOU may know and have faith in me, and that YOU may understand that I am the same One. Before me there was no God formed, and after me there continued to be none. 11 I—I am YHVH, and besides me there is no savior.”
12 “I myself have told forth and have saved and have caused [truth] to be heard, when there was among YOU no strange [god]. So YOU are my witnesses,” is the utterance of YHVH, “and I am God.
(see 1Pet.2:9; Rev.11:3)

Can you see that God MAKES his CHOSEN WITNESSES hear the TRUTH.....WHEN THEY ARE NOT BUSY WORSHIPING  someone or something else? (that is a requirement for receiving freedom from Satan's deception -John 8:32; Matt.13:11)

More proof of this, regarding the "CHOSEN" as being the ones given the truth:

20 And YOU have an anointing from the holy one; all of YOU have knowledge. 21 I write YOU, not because YOU do not know the truth, but because YOU know it, and because no lie originates with the truth.. 27 And as for YOU, the anointing that YOU received from him remains in YOU, and YOU do not need anyone to be teaching YOU; but, as the anointing from him is teaching YOU about all things, and is true and is no lie, and just as it has taught YOU, remain in union with him."

Can Satan ever deceive these ones also?
  "For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will give great signs and wonders so as to mislead, if possible, even the chosen ones.  Look! I have forewarned YOU."   Matt.24:24-25

The "Chosen Ones" can also be deceived by Satan, if they do not have the protection of God's Spirit....
which He will remove, if we are worshiping something else.... looking to those "great signs and wonders" which are a part of
Satan's "misleading" deceptions (2Thess.2:9-10,11-12; Rev.13:13-14,15; Matt.7:15,21; Rev.9:1; 17:15).

One of those "wonder"ful lies, is the doctrine that the reason the end has not yet arrived,
is because God is not yet satisfied that we have suffered long enough and
that Satan's rule actually has to be proven a failure.

And where are we supposed to watch to see that prophetic proof unfold?..."Keep a close eye only on the unfolding drama of Satan's world",
which he has total control of!

We all must learn to look to God's Word for the truth,
not look to Satan's world.
Jesus gives us the signs of the end that tell us how, why, and when (Matt.24:3; Rev.1:1,3).
They are in the Bible, not the evening news.

"FOR WE KNOW that all creation keeps on groaning together and being in pain together until now."
"For the eager expectation of the creation is waiting for the revealing of the sons of God." Rom.8:19,22
1Cor.15: "25 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death."
(Ps.110:1-2;  2Cor.10:3-5; Eph.6:12)
Why does Satan not want us to get the sense of Romans 8:19,22?
Because then we will be mesmerized by his tumultuous world, rather than helping the least of Christ's brothers to reach their goal (Matt.25:40)
Heb.6:10 reads:
"God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have ministered to HIS HOLY ONES, and continue to HELP THEM."

We saw at Matt.24:24, that Satan is going to try to mislead the Chosen in the time of the end, by means of Powerful, prominent, "fallen" anointed (Rev.8:10-11; 13:11;  2Thess.2:1-2,4; Luke 12:45). What would such a wicked Steward be teaching?

They teach the sheep to look to Satan's world for a premature, counterfeit fulfillment of Prophecy (2Thess.2:1-3; Matt.24:23; Luke 12:45).
They help Satan grab everyone's attention away from the Truth (2Cor11:3,13; Col.2:8; Rev.13:10,7).
They have become Satan's ministers, prompting the sheep to look to Satan's world for the "signs". They are lying signs! (2Thess.2:9) (
...and they prompt God's people to seek salvation through slavery to THEM (John 7:16-17,18; Rev.13:12,16; 2Thess.2:4), rather than from God (Rev.14:1; Exo.20:5; Psalm 146:3; 118:8; Rev.7:10) and the faithful (Rev.11:3,7-8,9-10; Rev.20:4).

 "For such men are false apostles (2Thess.2:2), deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ (Rev.13:11).  And no wonder, for Satan himself keeps transforming himself into an angel of light.  It is therefore nothing great if his ministers also keep transforming themselves into ministers of righteousness (Rev.13:1-2,8). But their end shall be according to their works."

The truth will not be gleaned from the information coming from Satan's world, nor in it's current events (1John4:1; Rev.16:13-14,15;  1Tim.4:1-2).
John 17:17-19:
17 Sanctify them by means of the truth; your word is truth. 18 Just as you sent me forth into the world, I also sent them forth into the world. 19 And I am sanctifying myself in their behalf, that they also may be sanctified by means of truth.

"FOR WE KNOW that all creation keeps on groaning together and being in pain together until now."
"For the eager expectation of the creation is waiting for the revealing of the sons of God." Rom.8:19,22
In the time of the end, the faithful sons of God will be enduring the most intense form of persecution during the Great Tribulation. They will be cast out as evil (Isa.66:5; Matt.5:11-12; Rev.11:7-9). Their being revealed, is when they will be vindicated, by the arrival of the revelation of truth (Rev.20:12; John 15:26; 16:13,8; Mal.3:1; Rev.11:11-12; Matt.23:12; Zech.4:10,14; Rev.11:4)
Learning to ignore Satan's world and looking to scripture for fulfillment of prophecy is a challenge, even for many anointed.
Yet the book of Revelation unveils the Truth, to those faithful anointed who are blessed with insight (Luke 12:35-36,37; Rev.3:20; 1:1,3).
Pray for Spirit, and I also pray for you (Luke 11:13). It is true, the entire inhabited earth is being deceived by Satan. Only the faithful chosen have a chance at being set free by truth (1Pet.2:5,9;  1John2:20,27; John 8:32; Rev.12:15-16,14; 9:14)...along with those who accept and feed on their sayings (Matt.10:40-41,42)....

Luke17:35-37NKJV :
"There will be two [women] grinding at the same mill; the one will be taken along, but the other will be abandoned.”  So in response they said to him: “Where, Lord?” He said to them: “Where the body is, there also the eagles will be gathered together.”
  - (https://eagle-or-vulture?)
Those who are "abandoned"/"left behind" in the field (Matt.24:40-41; Joel 1:10; Micah 3:12; Eze.33:27;  7:15; Jer.14:18),  will be swept away by the river of lies coming from Satan's mouth, just as the earth was drowned in the days of Noah (Matt.24:39; Rev.12:16). All others will be "taken along" on the wings of the anointed "eagles" of the "woman" (Rev.12:14), to feed on the "body/"slain" "two witnesses", instead (Matt.24:16,28; Luke 17:37) in the "Wilderness".

Matt.10:40 “He that receives YOU receives me also, and he that receives me receives him also that sent me forth. 41 He that receives a prophet because he is a prophet will get a prophet’s reward....And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water to drink because he is a disciple, I tell YOU truly, he will by no means lose his reward.”
I have written a few articles on this subject, if you would like to consider more scriptures related to it:

as well as the current full Directory of Articles:

So, a succinct answer to your question is;
God will use His power to end Satan's world, when all His Temple priesthood, become sealed.
He does not delight in the suffering of Creation, but rather, is awaiting the just basis to end all suffering (Prov.27:11; Rom.8:21,18,25; Luke 22:31; Rev.2:10; Gen.3:15; Eph.2:21-22)
Once all enemies of Truth and Life are conquered through those proving faithful to the death, God's eternal Kingdom will arrive, the faithful will be revealed, and every tear will be healed (Rev.21:4-5; Rom.8:19).

Thank you for your excellent question Samantha. I apologize for widening out my answer....
but the hour is quite late, and I hope to open many eyes as much as possible.

May our Father in heaven, bless your search for life and truth,

This question was left in "comments" after the Oct.13 post.
I though others could benefit if I posted it:

Hi Pearl,
In the third paragraph of this article you wrote "...and end up worshiping them instead of the Son of God". 
I suspect this was a mistype? (Matt. 6:10). If not please expound.


If by Matt.6:10, you believe that Jesus is not to receive any worship,
but only his Father is, then I understand.

Jesus is God's representative. By this statement,
I highlight men's inclination to follow and obey what they can see (Rev.13:8).
This improper worship was prophesied for our time. The leadership and authority given to
and taken by the "man of lawlessness" [who rules over the Chosen ones (2Thess.2:4;  1Cor.3:16; Eph.2:22)],
replaces the worship and subjection which is due Christ,
as the Head of his wife/body/Congregation. [(Phil.2:10; Rom.14:8,9,11 (John 5:22)]

Regarding those we should worship......
Rev.5:12-13,14; Heb.1:6; Matt.28:9,17; John 9:38; 5:23; Psalm.2:12
The Greek word for worship that is used in all the above verses is proskuneo. Obviously, the NKJV chose to translate this word as worship. The New World Translation (NWT), however, chose to translate this word as obeisance (honor, respect) in all the above verses. What becomes interesting about the NWT, is that whenever the same Greek word, proskuneo, is used in relation to the Father, the translators translated it as worship, even though they rendered it differently in relation to Jesus. (This can be verified by looking in the Watchtower’s own Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures.) Is this a double standard? Is the NWT justified in translating this word 2 different ways; as obeisance to Jesus and as worship to the Father?

Yet, while we give worship to God's installed King, we are given balance in understanding that Jesus is not equal to his Father.
This does not mean that he is not due any worship.
Our balance is clarified, at
"For “God has put all things in subjection under his (Jesus') feet.” But when it says, “all things are put in subjection,” it is plain that he is excepted who put all things in subjection under him. When all things are subjected to him, then the Son himself will also be subjected to him who put all things in subjection under him, that God may be all in all."

This does not infer that Jesus does not receive worship....but it does make clear that it is a relative worship in comparison to what is due our Heavenly Father.
Jesus Christ is not the equal of any man. He deserves obeisance from all, accordingly.

This might be illustrated with a family.
Suppose a mother sees to it (and enforces), that all in the household obey the Father.
This does NOT mean that the mother is obeyed INSTEAD of the Father, but rather,
that the mother is obeyed, because of the Father.
If the mother is disobeyed, the Father is also.
If the Father is obeyed, the mother is also.
This is how "worship" is given, both the Father and the Son, because of the Father,
and the position and authority He Himself, has given to His Son 
(Psalm.2:8; Phil.2:9-10; John 14:6; 5:22-23
Regarding Matt.6:10...
God's Kingdom IS given to the administration of Christ and his Bride members (Dan.7:13-14,18,21-22).
that will do God's will on earth,
and "restore all things" (Acts 3:20-21; Eph.1:10; Rev.19:16; 1:5; 5:9-10; Rom.8:29-30)
according to God's purpose.
