May you all have peace!
Lordy, Lisa-Girl, no offense taken. Surely you know this. One must have some sense of humor to exist in THIS world, yes?
Dear Mark J - the song is no big 'mystery', dear one. If you know it, why not share it with the dear folks here? This is not the WTBTS were only certain... ummmm... 'elect' are privy to praising JAH. If they are unable to 'master' it, or get the 'sense' of what my Lord taught, that is not our concern, is it? For no one comes to the Master unless the Father draws such one any way, yes? And it is not we who choose, but my Lord who chooses. So why all the covert WTBTS secrecy? You got a 'light', dear one? LET IT SHINE... before men!
Lizard, dear one, yes I have received the promised holy spirit, and have been directed by my Lord not to hide that fact from anyone, as 'cowards' have no place in his kingdom, but will exist OUTSIDE New Jerusalem... with the 'dogs' and practicers of spiritism. It is my understanding that those who receive such spirit do in fact know their tribe, whether they are direct descendants of Abraham (and therefore, one of the 144,000) or 'called' to BE Israel by means of joining themselves and 'going with' such ones (the vast mixed company or... 'great crowd'). I am a direct descendant of Abraham, by means of my forefather Ben-JAH-min (son of the men of JAH). That also makes me a "Jew" based on the fact that Judah and Benjamin made up that faction of Israel.
Dearest Noidea... peace to you and you ask:
Is it the same song (a literal song) that has the same verses and chorus?No, for when Moses and Israel sang it, the words were different from when Debra and Barak sang it, or when David sang it, or when my Lord sang it, or when the apostles/disciples sang it...
Psalm 33, 34, 144-145 and others
Or, is it praises that each one that is chosen sings individually..something from each owns heart?Not quite this, either. While the WORDS may be a bit different from person to person, the TRUTH, MEANING and HEARTFELT PURITY of the words... are the same. They are praises that are a 'restful odor' to my Father as they come from pure hearts, with NO deceit, hypocrisy, or hatred... from hearts that do not waver, even in the fact of adversity.
If it is a literal song..have you ever talked with another as yourself and compared that song and had the same exact wording?I have not done as you state here; however, when I have read the words of others, such as Moses, David, my Lord... MY spirit bore witness with THEIR spirit as to the truth and depth of the words. The LOVE existing in them... is... overwhelming. It does not fluctuate nor move... to the left or to the right. It is steadfast, no matter WHAT such one is experiencing in THIS world.
as far as the number 144,000 ..do you know what # you are?No, I do not. And you are correct: after the 12 and the 24 elders, all of the 144,000... and the great crowd... have pretty much the same 'rank'. It does not matter whether one is a vessel in the household for an 'honorable' purpose... or a 'dishonorable' one. It does not matter whether one is, say, a 'singer'... or a 'footwasher'... a candleholder... or a chamberpot. What matters is that one is IN the household. For ALL in the household are servants, of one sort or another... to all OTHERS in the House.
Rather than worrying about one's position at the table, then, one should present oneself as a servant to ALL others at the table, as did my Lord with my brothers on the night of his death in the flesh. For just as it went with my Lord, in THAT way, all will be 'exalted'... not by his or her own hand... but by God.
To all of you who have shown my love here, may the undeserved kindness and mercy of my God and Father, the Holy One of Israel, whose name is JAH... of armies... and the peace of His Son and Christ, my Lord, JAHESHUA MISCHAJAH, be upon you... if you so wish it... to time indefinite.
I am your servant, and a slave of Christ,
