James Mixon, I hope you will be able to help your daughter see the same hypocrisy you do. It seems the play on emotions is heavy now through the use of videos and movies as scare tactics in keeping the sheep in submission.
I do believe the Pharisees and the leaders in the organization have the same Father and it isn't the Father in Heaven.
Just like the Pharisees, they believe they imitate God in
obedience displaying their own brand of righteousness. 1 Pet 1:14-16; Eph 5:1; Luke 3:38
The Pharisees murdered Christ, according to what they
perceived the law read, whereas the GB “disfellowships” – a spiritual beheading
– those within the Body of Christ and all,according to how they perceive the scriptures
when one preaches Jesus! Rev 20:4; Acts
They have successfully inherited the recipe to imitate the
yeast of the Pharisees, handed down from their Father. Mark 8:13-16,21; 9:33,34; Luke 9:46; 1 Cor 8:2; Gal 6:3; 2 Cor 11:12
"You are of your father
the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer
from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth
in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks
from his own resources, for
he is a liar and the father of it. But because I tell
the truth, you do not believe Me.” John
If we are to have the attitude of Jesus, we certainly should
surpass the standards of the Pharisees, the GB and the elder body.
“For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the
righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the
kingdom of heaven.” Matt 5:20
“But Jesus called them to Himself and
said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers over the
Gentiles lord it over them, and their
great ones exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but
whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant.” Mark 10:42,43
Not only are they identical to the Pharisees, they fit the
description of the composite Beasts of Revelation.
Rev 13:14 - So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority
to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with
This particular “beast” is the image of the organization.
It was also discerned in the 1920’s that there are two opposing
organizations—Jehovah’s and Satan’s. The fight is on between them, and we
will be on the winning side only if we keep in step with Jehovah’s organization.
When we observe the complex problems plaguing this wicked system, how
thankful we are to be no part of Satan’s organization! And how favored
we are to have spiritual security within Jehovah’s organization! W 01/1/15 Keep in step with Jehovah's Organization
And here is the other beast, made of a composite false
prophet and harlot:
"Then I saw another beast coming up out of the
earth, and he had two horns like a lamb
and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the
first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those
who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was
"And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast,
telling those who dwell on the earth to make
an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and
lived. He was granted power to
give breath to the image of the beast, [spirit-directed] that
the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as
would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. [disfellowshipping]
The dragon, the Father of the Lie, whom the primary false prophet/beast receives its
power, pours out lies into the mouth of both beasts. They, in turn dispense these lies through their own mouth:
“And I saw three spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the
dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out
to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the
battle of that great day of God Almighty." Rev 16:13; 17:14; 1 Pet 2:9; Rev 5:10
“and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark
or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Rev 13:17
The only spiritual currency allowed within the organization is
through the Watchtower, approved by the beast/ harlot/GB. The mark of the name of the beast/organization is clearly seen by one’s acceptance
during baptism to be identified as a JW, as well as all actions performed by those who adhere to it's doctrine.
The GB/Harlot/false prophet sits above many "waters":
"Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits,
are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues." Rev 17:15
our very eyes, God is collecting people from all nations and
forming them into the foundation of a new earthly society that will soon
replace today’s disunited world." dg part 11 pp. 28-32
"In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, 'I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.' Rev 18:7
Although she teaches the organization and herself are on the "winning side" of the battle, I believe we all can forecast the coming fall on the horizon for this false prophet/harlot. She allows the "killing" of her own brothers and sisters in Christ; she threatens with blackmail, the loss of loved ones for "speaking out" against her; she has shed blood through the years in many ways, she perpetrates lies, she oppresses the sheep through required obedience to an idol, she has basically erased Christ as head of each anointed one (an abomination - Matt 24:15) and all sheep, by requiring the organization to be one's mediator for salvation.
"And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." Rev 17:5
"And the ten horns [symbolic "kings" in power that rise up] which you saw on the beast [elder body/organization], these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire" Rev 17:16
“Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the
number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His
number is 666.” Rev
James, I pray you can convince your daughter to get out while she can; I pray this for all JWs.
