    I picked this up over several different recent threads. Help me here

    The annointed...they all die = change of light of some kind

    Eventually there can't be anymore annointed. At a point they will of clearly of passed away...this means no annointed to help in the new order from earth and all of them in heaven and still nothing.

    Does this mean new light? What will it be?

    OH and as well...anything else that will happen eventually and cause a change of light...

    Yes they have to come up with 'new light' at some point.

    I would say it will be a 'different slant' on something...just like they did with the 'generation'!

    mmm i hope it will cause some dubs to change their mind, not likely unless its big

    mmm i hope it will cause some dubs to change their mind,

    Yes it will some...there are even people on here now that when the 'generation' change came they said..that's it I'm outta here!

    But then again you will always have the stupid one's that even if Jesus came to earth and told them himself that it was not the 'truth' ...they still would not leave!

    They are usually good at juggling things around so when they will finally have to admit that the anointed dogma was not quite right they will do so in a cunning way that will not scare away the sheep.

    They did it with the 1914 generation change the dubs didn't protest much on what was in fact the death of their hopes for a paradise long before they die.

    It's a joke to think that ppl like the fraudulant GB will ever be given places in heaven they will be lucky not to end up in the lake of fire and sulfur given their criminal actions over many years.

    What worry's me is that with their mags and books they will prepare everyone for the change and even though it will come as a shock, the pieces of evidence to fit (lies) will of been placed already.

    But the new "anointed" keep getting younger. It can go on for a while yet! Before long no-one will remember that the number was supposed to be finalised by 1935.

    If they wait until the majority who actually remember reading, studying, and hearing certain doctrines and promises die off, they can make changes and convince those who only heard about these things or studied more vague and watered-down versions that this stuff wasn't ever really all that important.

    With the WTS discouraging reading of older mags and books and the way they alter material that they put in compilation cds, they can gloss over a lot. Plus, by really hammering away at how no one should question Jah's organization, they can even keep folks from questioning too much just based on believing that anything coming from headquarters is coming from God. Nice racket really.

    When they make big changes there are always some who wake up and realize it's a crock and will leave. But, unfortunately, many will stay because they like their nice, cozy fantasy world. There is some comfort in believing that Jah will fix everything someday and they don't have to worry, actually do anything or take a stand for anything themselves...well, aside from selling their little rags, attending a bazillion meetings and having to treat a bunch of con men as if they are Jehoober's board of directors.

    You must have missed the Nethinim "new light" other sheep brothers being trained at Bethel to take over when all the anointed die and are taken to heaven.

    *** w97 5/15 p. 20 Theocratic Administration in the Christian Era ***

    In keeping with his administration of things, Jehovah is progressively moving "to gather all things together again in the Christ." As far as "the things in the heavens" are concerned, his purpose approaches completion. The uniting of Jesus with all the 144,000 in heaven for "the marriage of the Lamb" is near. Hence, more and more longtime, mature brothers of the other sheep, representing "the things on the earth," have had delegated to them weightier responsibilities in support of their anointed brothers.

    *** w96 7/1 p. 21 The Triumph of True Worship Draws Near ***

    Also, the great crowd of foreigners cherish God’s great undeserved kindness in granting them an earthly hope of everlasting life in Paradise. Some of these foreigners, like the Nethinim of old, have been given privileges of oversight in assisting the holy priesthood. (Isaiah 61:5) From among these Jesus appoints "princes in all the earth."—Psalm 45:16.

    *** w95 5/15 p. 23 Flashes of Light—Great and Small (Part 2) ***

    The Watchtower of April 15, 1992, announced that selected brothers mainly of the "other sheep" were being assigned to assist the Governing Body committees, corresponding to the Nethinim of Ezra’s day.—John 10:16; Ezra 2:58.

    *** w95 7/1 p. 22 Dwellers Together in a Restored "Land" ***

    Moreover, with the great crowd increasing by the hundreds of thousands each year, there is an ever-growing need for oversight. At one time this was handled exclusively by anointed Christians. Now, oversight of most congregations, as well as circuits, districts, and branches, has of necessity been entrusted to the other sheep. In 1992 a few of these were given the privilege of attending meetings of committees of the Governing Body and serving as nonvoting helpers. Still, the other sheep remain loyal to their anointed fellow Christians and feel privileged to support them as Jehovah’s faithful and discreet slave.—Matthew 25:34-40.

    *** w92 4/15 pp. 16-17 Jehovah’s Provision, the "Given Ones" ***

    20 All the non-Israelites who returned from exile in ancient Babylon parallel the other sheep who now serve with the remnant of spiritual Israel. What, though, of the fact that the Bible singles out the Nethinim and the sons of the servants of Solomon? In the pattern the Nethinim and the sons of the servants of Solomon were given privileges beyond those of other non-Israelite returnees. This could well foreshadow that God today has extended privileges and added duties to some mature and willing other sheep.

    21 The Nethinim’s added privileges were linked directly to spiritual activities. The sons of the servants of Solomon evidently received administrative responsibilities. Similarly today, Jehovah has blessed his people with "gifts in men" to care for their needs. (Ephesians 4:8, 11, 12) Included in this provision are many hundreds of mature, experienced brothers who share in ‘shepherding the flocks,’ serving as circuit and district overseers and on Branch Committees at the Watch Tower Society’s 98 branches. (Isaiah 61:5) At the world headquarters of the Society, under the direction of "the faithful steward" and its Governing Body, capable men receive training to help in preparing spiritual food supplies. (Luke 12:42) Other longtime dedicated volunteers have been trained to operate Bethel homes and factories and to oversee programs worldwide in constructing new branch facilities and halls for Christian worship. They have excelled in serving as close helpers of the anointed remnant, who constitute part of the royal priesthood.—Compare 1 Corinthians 4:17; 14:40; 1 Peter 2:9.

    22 In ancient times, priests and Levites continued to serve among the Jews. (John 1:19) Today, however, the remnant of spiritual Israel on earth must go on decreasing. (Contrast John 3:30.) Finally, after the demise of Babylon the Great, all 144,000 ‘sealed ones’ will be in heaven for the marriage of the Lamb. (Revelation 7:1-3; 19:1-8) But now the other sheep must go on increasing. The fact that some of them, comparable to the Nethinim and the sons of the servants of Solomon, are now being assigned weighty responsibilities under the oversight of the anointed remnant does not cause them to be presumptuous or feel self-important. (Romans 12:3) This gives us confidence that as God’s people "come out of the great tribulation," there will be experienced men—"princes"—prepared to take the lead among the other sheep.—Revelation 7:14; Isaiah 32:1; compare Acts 6:2-7.

    Well read KW,

    That's exactly how the Watchtower boys work it. They're cunning as a fox. Blondie's references are examples of how they keep tilling the soil peppering it with ideas here and there in an effort to 'future proof' themselves.
