May you all have peace!
There is a phenomenon that exists here that SMACKS of WTBTS false propaganda and rhetoric... that I am compelled, by the spirit of my Father, JAH OF ARMIES, by means of His Son and Christ, my Lord, JAHESHUA MISCHAJAH, to speak on it, if you will permit me. Thank you.
Is it okay for one to say one... is... is of the... has been... 'anointed'?
Absolutely, it is. Please let me explain. In TRUTH, it the very VOCATION of the WTBTS... the purpose for its institution by the Adversary to STOP the profession of such a thing. It is their VOCATION, by means of the one who drives them to:
1. Limit the number of those who are/can be anointed...
2. Shut the door upon those who they do not recognized as anointed...
3. Stifle and censor any and all who speak out as one who has been anointed.
It is their VOCATION, dear ones... the very reason they have come into existence... to MISLEAD IF POSSIBLE... and if possible... KILL... the chosen ones. How do they do this? Although saying that they do NOT:
1. Do not profess to be anointed, for they will ostracize you.
2. Do not profess to be anointed, for they will persecute you.
3. Do not profess to be anointed, for they will expel you.
4. Do not profess to be anointed, for they will slander you.
5. Do not profess to be anointed, for they will do whatever is in their power to 'kill' you... spiritually.
Their leaders are the scribes and Pharisees of THIS 'generation'... who conduct themselves in the same manner as their forefathers, who say, "If the prophets were sent to US... WE would not kill them." And yet, like their forefathers, those who killed or attempted to kill EVERY prophet sent to them... EVERY 'chosen' one... including my Lord... they, too, carry such bloodguilt. For a prophet IS an 'anointed' one, one CHOSEN... and sent... by God, through Christ... to speak to the House of Israel. And as from Cain until now, such ones do NOT listen... but instead seek ways to silence any sent to speak to them or any that THEY feel may be exalted above them... even in the face of their own 'error'.
Tell me, dear ones... how can one BE anointed... and not profess it? Is not failing to profess it the same as passing the wine and bread by... which is the same as DENYING AND/OR REJECTING THE VERY OWNER THAT BOUGHT YOU?
True, one who has truly received the promised holy spirit does not go about BRAGGING of it... or demanding favortism (or even accepting such) by reason of it. They do not go blowing a trumpet, as my Lord did not go blowing one.
However... LIKE my Lord, such ones do NOT deny who and what they are, but rather, REJOICE in such 'gift', and are ready to make a defense before ALL who demand of them a reason for their hope. Such reason... dear ones... IS that very anointing. For without an anointing, a choosing, the receipt of holy spirit... such one HAS no hope!
We are NOT to put our lights 'under a basket'... but let them SHINE... before men. Contrary to what earthling man... and particularly the leaders of the WTBTS wish you to believe... there is NO SHAME in having received the promised holy spirit. Rather... there is a REJOICING... to the point of wanting to tell OTHERS about it... and share in it WITH them.
If, however, you can never profess what you have received, how then can you tell others of it and invite them, too, to:
"COME! Take 'life's water' free!"?
For those of you who find this contradictory to what you have been taught, and thus, at THIS time believe, I give you the words of my Lord as recorded at Matthew 10:
"He that is ashamed of ME before men,
I will be ashamed of HIM... before my Father."
Therefore, I implore you... REJOICE IN THE FAITH... CONFESS IT... and do NOT hide your light under a basket. BUT... keep an eye on yourself and be careful not to PRACTICE YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS before men IN ORDER TO BE OBSERVED BY THEM. Rather, go making your GIFTS OF MERCY... in secret... while giving the glory of THAT... to God.
Your servant and a slave of Christ,
