Jehovah knows those who belong to him.—2 Tim. 2:19.
In recent years, we have seen an increase in the number of those partaking at the Memorial of Christ’s death. That trend contrasts with the decrease in the number of partakers that we saw for many decades. Should this increase trouble us? No. Let us consider some key factors to keep in mind. Those taking the count at the Memorial cannot judge who truly have the heavenly hope. The number of partakers includes those who mistakenly think that they are anointed. Some who at one point started to partake of the emblems later stopped. Others may have mental or emotional problems that lead them to believe that they will rule with Christ in heaven. Therefore, the number of partakers does not accurately indicate the number of anointed ones left on earth. And the Bible does not state how many will be left at the time that the great tribulation begins. w16.01 4:12-14
It's fun to see how the borg tries desperately to justify the illogical increase of "anointed" ones when the math does not add up in the first place! This "anointed" concept should NOT even be in existence in our time to begin with! Think about it — they are actually saying that the hundreds of thousands of Christians who lived back in the first century WERE NOT ABLE to fill this number of 144,000??? Instead of labelling certain ones who partake as having mental and emotional problems, the GB does not have to look any further than THEMSELVES as they are undisputably the real whackos!
