According to the "Revelation - it's Grand Climax" book on page 116 par.9
It says that when jesus annointed ones have been tried and sifted, then they will recieve a "permanent mark' on their forehead that they have been tried and found worthy. They can't then lose their salvation. However, it says that when the 'sealing is complete", then Jesus will unleash the 4 winds of tribulation. In other words, when the Great tribulation begins, the sealing will have been complete in it's finality.
This means that "some" are annointed as of now, but have not been tried yet and sealed and will still fall away.....which is why armageddon isn't here yet since the sealing comes BEFORE armageddon.
So, if there are some 8,000 annointed( but not yet sealed) left on earth....who are they? Why and how did they become annointed if they were not tried and sifted first.... instead of waiting till jehovah annoints them, then tries them with the chance they may fail and lose their annointing?
It's obvious that some are going to lose their reward....or else armageddon would be here since all will have been sealed when it starts.....according to their own words.......so be on the watchout for sister faithfulforfiftyyears when she quits drinkin the vino& saltines at the Kingdom Hall
Gumby.....who thinks annointed dubs are usually a few beers short of a six-pac
