You know what? It just occured to me, that there was this one sister from Atlantic Canada. She was reached via the door-to-door ministry, and eventually became a full fledged Jehovah's Witness.
I found out later, she was of the annointed.
I mean, she was only in her late 30s or early 40s.
Then there was this other brother, had a pretty interesting and wild past, and he claimed he was of the annointed as well. He was, I think, in his 30s.
I always used to think it was old-timers that were of the annointed.
But I was told that things were decided by Jehovah god and that these individuals were particularly inspired by God's holy spirit.
Anyways...the years and numbers must be dwindling.
Interesting topic. I vaguely remember the number of the annointed left was something like several thousand at one time (late 70s early 80s).
New light? there'll always be new light for the followers of darkness, which is the WTBTS.
