Hi RosePetal, I am certainly not advocating any new religion and I am not saying we should follow the same channel or another branch of jehovahs witnesses, what I am trying to do is to bring to the attention of everyone who was or still is, associated with Jehovahs witnesses their false teachings and views of God's word the bible.
If I might explain, there are many people today who profess to be of the true kingdom seed, the faithful and discreet slave class, even in these articles, but are they? You can test them yourself using God's word the bible.
For instance, do they still use the name Jehovah after leaving the org?
2nd Thes 2 shows the man of lawlessness sitting inside the temple of God, proclaiming to be God, the temple being the anointed ones today. In Rev 11 it shows the importance is the temple and not the courtyards of the city, (which they call the great crowd) it is the temple ones today which are the important issue. They are to be harvested as a remnant from amongst the kingdom seed as the first fruits, the first resurrection.They will also be trying to help Gods people still in captivity to see the truth, just as the illustration of Jesus shows, "when the owner returns he will reward them", so this work was prophesied.
Let me explain, you say, why can't these ones be in all religions, but is that logical? Which religion today teach this from Matt 24v45 about this servant, only JWS. Would they understand about 2nd Thes for instance, the temple being one place inside symbolic Jerusalem.
Our God is a God of order, Jerusalem his city did not cover the whole of the earth but a small area just like his people will be in one group of people, spiritual Israel. Remember the apostle Paul, he was trained and taught by the school of the Pharisees then when Jesus appeared to him he was guided and taught through the holy spirit all the teachings and training he received as a Pharisee was very useful to him because he was able to preach to Jews and Gentiles alike.
So RosePetal, what I am trying to do is help all those who are still in the org to check their teachings against the bible and yes, they will need someone who like Paul, who knows both sides, the org, the Pharisees with their many wrong laws, and the bible. As for the professed faithful and discreet servant class today, you will need to check them out, ask them who the man of lawlessness is today who Paul says is sitting inside the temple class of anointed ones, if they do not know, they are not of that servant being used today because Paul says it will be revealed to them.
I would just like to point out I was very strong inside the org for 38 years, studying all their liturature, I even had all the watchtowers from the very first one printed and studied them, but then in 2002 according to the fulfillment of the prophecy in Daniel 9v25-27 which I have learned during the last 7 years, did not start in 445 as the org teach, the time of the messiah to make an inspection visit took place.
It was revealed to me that all the teachings I had learned was wrong, not just revealing they were wrong, but I was actually shown the true teachings. I had been woken up spiritually speaking, just as the apostle Paul had been, and just like Paul I am trying to help others still inside the org today to get out from amongst them and quit touching the unclean thing.
The last 7 years of that prophecy ends with the "anointing of a holy one" Jesus is given the throne of the kingdom which covers the whole of the earth. when that happens, he will ride into battle against all the angelic princes who have been ruling. The prophecy also shows the symbolic city of Jerusalem, God's city, will also be destroyed. Very shortly Jehovahs witnesses will be no more, either their name will change from Jehovahs witnesses to another one as in 1931, or the religion will be destroyed. That is why we are urged to "get out from among them". I hope this is of some help to you RosePetal. check these out and read all the scriptures and see the truth. Don't forget to pray first for our God to open your eyes through his holy spirit.
