    (Revelation 5:10) - and you made them to the God of us kingdom and priests, and they are reigning upon the earth. (NWT Kindom Interlinear)

    (Revelation 5:10) . . .and you made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God, and they are to rule as kings over the earth.” (RNWT)

    The original Greek says certain ones will be reigning, (βασιλεύουσιν) it does not say they will be kings.

    Also, the original Greek clearly says that they will be upon the earth - not above or over it.

    Scripture proves scripture: The messianic prophecy at Psalm 45:16 says, "You will appoint them as princes (not kings) in all the earth."

    Princes (rulers, chieftains, heads, officials under king) on the earth - not kings in heaven! Example: Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, & Abednego were all rulers - not kings.

    As for the cult's alleged 144,000 king-priests, Paul must have been exaggerating Christ's parallel to Melchizedek - if 144,000 window-cleaners etc. are also going to become king-priest Melchizedek clones:

    (Hebrews 5:5, 6) "So, too, the Christ did not glorify himself by becoming a high priest, but was glorified by the One who said to him: “You (not 144,000 others) are a priest forever in the manner of Melchizedek.”

    (Hebrews 7:11) "...what further need would there be for another priest (not 144,000) to arise who is said to be in the manner of Melchizedek." (not 'are' like Melchizedek)

    (Hebrews 7:15) "And this becomes even clearer when another priest (not 144,000) arises who is like Melchizedek," (not 'are' like Melchizedek)

    Hey when you are in charge of a religion, you have the power to make the bible say whatever you want it to say even if it doesn't say! Repeat bullshit enough and it becomes truth!

    just saying!

    Scripture proves scripture...

    A popular sentiment in fundy circles, but it's no better from the perspective of translation than the doctrinal bias of the JW's.....

    Why is because the leaders and directors of the WTS were strategically endeavored to sell and proliferate literature and build a semblance of power around themselves.

    Identifying themselves as the Faithful Discrete Slave, the anointed ones etc. (1919)

    But in reality they were commercialized false prophets full of lies, corruption and sin.

    Many times power and money have made men corrupt toward their own self serving means.

    The Kingdom Interlinear of The Christian Greek Scriptures (KI) published by the WTB&TS as a word for word translation of the Greek into English...NWT

    Read the actual english word for the actual greek word and then compare it with what is the NWT interpretation in the accompanying column and you can get a completely different meaning .

    A meaning of course that supports WT/JW doctrine. And not what the actual Greek scripture said..

    This KI publication is the Greek text revised by Westcott and Hort ( 1948 reprint ) that the Watchtower publishers based their NWT on of the Christian Greek Scriptures otherwise known as the ,New Testament.
