Destruction to start from “God’s House”

    Here is the greatest irony: People proclaiming the destruction of others are the first ones to experience destruction, foretaste of which is already experienced in the form of shrinking glory, finance and confidence!

    Babel means confusion, hence Babylon the Great means a great nation of confusing doctrines. This nation is “intoxicated” and “drunk with the blood of God’s holy ones.” (Revelation 17:2, 6) The greatest intoxication of Christendom and its heartland Jehovah’s Witnesses is with their own claim of having monopoly on truth and thus treating rest of the mankind as pagan, a concept that kills everything God’s holy ones stood for (Mathew 7:12). Loving one’s own people only is described as the ways of “sinners” (Luke 6:32-36) and claiming God as belonging to a fraction of humanity is even a greater sin, as rightly stated by Sir Isac Newton in his Principia Mathematica: “The supreme God is a Being eternal, absolutely perfect” whom no one can call “my God, your God, the God of Israel.”

    Dividing God’s children into two group (chosen ones and pagans) is “injustice” towards fellow humans and also rejection of God as the Father of all humans (Genesis 1:27). Such injustice and rejection of primary truth is also the very essence of being anti-Christ because according to Christ, “the poor in spirit, those who mourn, the meek, those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, the merciful, the pure in heart, the peacemakers, those who are persecuted because of righteousness …” and all those who act humanely towards one another are the ones who are going to be “blessed by God the Father.” (Mathew 5:3-12; 25:31-46) Such “blessed” ones are found in all religions. Thus those who exalt themselves over others set themselves against truth, God and His Christ which invites adverse judgment from God: “All those who exalt themselves will be humbled.” (Luke 14:11)

    Bible and historical books report ‘those who exalted themselves as God’s own people calling others as pagan’ were ‘brought to their ruin and left them naked’ twice on the world scene (in 586 BC and 70 CE) by great empires of that time whom Bible describes as “God’s servants” into whose ‘hearts God had put those thoughts of desolation burning them with fire.’ (Romans 13:6; Revelation 17:16, 17). Just like First World War was the shadow of the Second World War, and both would be shadow of the Third World War, those are the shadow of the greater destruction that is to come on greater nation (Christendom, epicenter of which is Jehovah’s Witnesses) that makes the same claim as ancient Israel did. When Ezekiel asked Sovereign God:Are you going to destroy the entire remnant of Israel in this outpouring of your wrath on Jerusalem?” God answered him: “The sin of the people of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great … full of injustice I will bring down on their own heads what they have done.” (Ezekiel 9:8-10) God hates a proud heart (personification of which is Satan). Elevating oneself above others is spiritual cancer that eats up the very possibility of love. (Proverbs 16:18)

    Interestingly, something too obvious is not seen by JWs.

    God is non-interventionist, says Jesus through the famous story of prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32) because the Hero of the story, Father, permits son to use his free-will to any extent and accepts him when “he returns to his senses” and also there are many unambiguous statements such as Mathew 12:35; Revelation 22:11 …etc to this effect. This is because it is nature (not God) that rewards according to what each one does—qualitatively (Galatians 6:7) and quantitatively (Luke 6:38)

    That means God would not say He leads the history (as implied in Genesis 3:15) nor Jesus would say He would appoint “a Faithful and Discreet Slave” class to lead people spiritually as given in Mathew 24:45. The wording itself suggests that it is coined by some thoughtless person because it gives the impression that Jesus tacitly condones the disgusting practice of slavery about which Abraham Lincoln rightly said: “If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong.”

    What is new becomes old in due course. God filled the earth with provisions for life's enjoyment. (Genesis 1) Mankind (Adam, originally means mankind in Hebrew) enjoyed those provisions for some extended period; and then greed appeared which is symbolically presented through an individual Adam (what actually mankind did collectively); thus earth began to become old, became like hell. Now population is exploding and resources are depleted/destroyed. In due course, God will refill the earth with provisions for life's enjoyment. (Revelation 21:1-5) Only God can renew what has become old. This is common sense, not a thing to be preached.

    No, punkofnice,

    No competition, No fight here, we are all spiritual people ever since we left

    Worldly separation on the basis of certain physical or social factors like language and skin color is no different from the separation religion creates. Religion, by its very etymology, exists to unite people. But people fight in the name of religion. Religious fight/argument (subtle or gross) shows that spirituality is not present. When spirituality goes, quarrels begin.
