A question to ask the trolley Witnesses
"Do Jehovah' Witnesses believe that it's OK to receive messages from dead people who are in heaven?"
re chap. 20 pp. 124-125 par. 17 A Multitudinous Great Crowd - "Yes, that elder could locate the answer and give it to John. This suggests that resurrected ones of the 24-elders group (resurrected 144,000 ones) may be involved in the communicating of divine truths today."
w07 1/1 p. 28 par. 11 “The First Resurrection”—Now Under Way! - "What, then, can we deduce from the fact that one of the 24 elders identifies the great crowd to John? It seems that resurrected ones of the 24-elders group may be involved in the communicating of divine truths today."
I've got this mental image of the J.W. G.B. sitting round their table every Wednesday morning, holding each other's hands
Anyone remember what Deuteronomy 18:10-12 says Jehovah thinks about this topic?
But only a JW would have any way of knowing that - so you would have to OUT yourself.
If a JW says he received some information from the 24 elders from heaven, a JC will judge him as having had demonic contact.
GB will not behave like Eli who encouraged young Samuel to get more information from God (because of ego-problem)
