I am grateful for Holy Spirit's ability to dredge up long-forgotten spiritual gems that lurk in dark caverns of the mind.
It has been revealed -- for your edification and enlightenment -- that the resurrected anointed among the symbolic 24 elders do, indeed, play a vital role in the new but typically confusing developments in the world of JW theology.
In the much revered but oft maligned book, "Revelation: Its Grand Climax At Hand!" we discover the reason behind it all:
[. . .] resurrected ones of the 24-elders group may be involved in the communicating of divine truths today." -- pages, 124, 125, paragraph 17.
This, my friends, is the answer to all your head-pounding inquiries over what's happenin'.
Of course, you may think this is for naught because of the little 3-letter disclaiming word, "may," in the quotation above.
You work it out. I am not master of your faith . . .
