The phrase "eating blood" has been translated from an archaic language from words that were intended to express the idea of "profiting from bloodshed".
This would include anyone who is a war monger: leaders who declare war, soldiers who fight in the King's wars, those who sell merchandise that is used in those wars, those who provide services for war mongers, etc.
Profiting from bloodshed would also include people who kill others for any reason. A woman who kills an abusive husband profits by gaining her "freedom". A robber profits by gaining some monetary value. One who kills out of blackmail gains silence. There is always some "profit" to be had where murder is concerned.
Profiting from bloodshed can also be seen in some holiday celebrations. Do you ever see an Indian represented in Thanksgiving decorations? Rarely, if ever. The traditional decorations are a Cornucopia, a turkey, and a pilgrim with a musket. The "food" and the "horn of plenty" represents the spoils of war. Profiting from the deaths of others.
The 4th of July celebrations also represent profiting from bloodshed. The fireworks represent the noise of weapons and the flash of burning fires.
(I noticed on a recent thread that the WT calls these non-religious holidays "false religious holidays". What absurd wording. It should be crystal clear that they do not even know what they are talking about. They have no truth nor accuracy in their mouths. These holidays never had anything to do with religion so how can they be labeled as "false religion"?)
Watchtower elites have made up the most ridiculous doctrines because not one of those people have ever understood the true meaning. None of them are nor ever have been "Holy Spirit directed". I believe they do claim to be "spirit inspired" but the only spirit inspiring them is an evil spirt. Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth and none of the Watchtower Governing Body nor any of it's associates have that. Their time has come. They all have blood on their hands. They have profited greatly from the death of their own members and have taken the food from the orphans and widows. They have profited from bloodshed by directing their members to refuse life saving treatments. May they all be thrown into the abyss with Satan their leader.
Do you have blood on your hands? Has profiting from bloodshed touched your life in any way?
Do you support people who engage in profiting from bloodshed? Do you support the leadership of nations which engage in declaring wars for the profit it brings? Do you trade with corporations that provide goods to the war mongers? do you trade with corporations that furnish products that are a direct result of the spoils of war? Do you participate in holidays that promote the benefits of the spoils of war? Do you honor people who have been decorated for killing people?
After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.
Then one of the elders asked me, “These in white robes—who are they, and where did they come from?”
14 I answered, “Sir, you know.”
And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the (Spirit of Truth)
