There has been a lot of discussion regarding some 'news' to be released later in the year. I have no inside whispers however I think that, if something new happens, it will be in regard to 'faders'. Many of us have faded and not attended meetings for some time. This has been easy for elders - "you leave us alone and we will leave you alone". This may be easy for the local elders but has been problematic for the powers that be. If there is a change I think it will be linked to the passover described at EX 12:13. I believe the mantra will be - we are so close to the great tribulation we need to be not only active, but seen to be active in the 'lifesaving' work. If a person is not attending all the meetings and counting time in the vital witnessing work they have not made an obvious statement and therefore not followed the direction stated at Ex 12:7 ' take some of the blood and splash it upon the two doorposts and the upper part of the doorway".
By your actions of not attending meetings and witnessing you have shown that you have disasociated yourself from the organisation and no longer have the 'protection of the passover'. An easy, but somewhat desperate method to rid themselves of dissenters.
