    got my forty homey?

    I remember as a kid we were taught that getting picked to be annointed was a mysterious unknown process. And if you were to ask a anointed person how did it feel to be annointed they would say it would be similiar to trying to answer the question whats it like being a boy or girl.

    I could answer that, being a boy is always being horny!

    Hey, how much better can it be to live in heaven when this existence on earth is a miserable experience.

    Got my forty homey?---- That is a cop out answer from the jw about how they know . The christians in the 1st century knew because of the gifts they recieved from the holy spirit . Apparently noone else had these gifts unless they were associated with the true christian church . I think the state the earth is in does not reflect the heavenly state of things . The people associated with ruling in heaven for the 1000 years will begin rule after God sets the record straight and crushes the world governments under his feet to begin the process of restoring paradise . IMO , the WTBTS has it wrong when they say these people begin ruling just after they die .

    Kess --- The appointed times of the nations was from the time that judah fell to the babylonians to the time that the messianic kingdom starts ruling . You did make some good points tho .Revelations does use alot of symbolisms and does not use the term anointed .

    I'm annointed. And if you don't believe it you can go straight to hell.

    To heathen,

    Where do you get your information about the "appointed times of the nations?" From what period to what period does it happen?

    To integ,

    If you truly believe you are of the anointed, then you have a responsibility to the household of God, yes?

    My name is Aaron. i originally posted as 'kes152' but I wanted to use my real name. Peace be with you all.

    I think if God wants someone for some special thing like going to heaven he will make it so plain to him or her that it will be beyond all false hopes. It will be special something very special that will be finely made for each one to know. It will not be something that the WT has to describe and then a human has to follow that discription. for something like this it would be very personal between you and Jehovah and you and him alone.

    To Kes/Aaron, AGuest, and Bebu:

    Aaron, what an inspiring, touching and enlightening explanation regarding the anointing. It's actually the best explanation I've ever heard, clear as a bell. I already knew that "anyone" could have it, but still wasn't quite sure who/what/when/ where/how/why. Thanks for all of the scriptural backup.

    AGuest, I ALWAYS enjoy your threads and comments. Please keep them coming no matter what comes from the peanut gallery. ;-)

    Bebu, I saved all three of you guys' posts, and yours was the perfect finale. I'm so glad there are 'spiritual threads' like these, and I almost passed over it because I thought it was a joke. You guys have me in tears (because it was so touching and beautiful and clearly defined).

    Thank you all.

    What a load of old cobblers you all talk! The definition of anointing is to consecrate with oil.

    The anointing that you are talking about is just a mental aberration on the part of people who suffer from delusions of grandeur and religious mania.

    You just have to look at them to see this is true.

    If you think differently show me your evidence.
