James 3:1,2

(James 3:1, 2)
Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, knowing that we shall receive heavier judgment. For we all stumble many times.
With these words of caution any of us who write should be concerned. Surely none of us would deliberately want to mislead anyone. This is my utmost concern whenever I write something.   
As is everyone else, I am imperfect. Even though I may be thoroughly convinced of something, I only have partial knowledge, (1 Corinthians 13:9, 10), as does everyone who writes. (Even anointed ones) All of us should therefore be like the ancient Beroeans, who carefully examined the scriptures as to whether these things were so. (Acts 17:11)
Do not believe every inspired expression, but test the inspired expressions...(1 John 4:1)... to see whether they originate with God, because many false prophets have gone forth into the world. It is each ones responsibility to make sure of all things and then hold fast to what is fine.   (1 Thessalonians 5:21)
What I write is not my own. The Bible is the main source of learning. I have read writings of others, even ones who profess to be anointed. I have had opportunity to talk with anointed ones. As I learn stuff that seems new, I go to the scriptures to “make sure”... as all of us should.  
     I have had spiritual discussions about God's word with...Pearl ...an anointed sister at  4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com  ... and as a result of these discussions I have been blessed with a better understanding of God's word.   Pearl has shared with me many things that God has blessed her with. 
 It is my hope to help the Heavenly Father's word reach as many people as possible.


As it is for any of us looking up the scriptures and reasoning upon them was necessary. It took time to see that not everything was as it seemed. 
 It is important for all of us to pray for guidance from Holy Spirit. Without it we will not understand. 
If what we are trying to understand is from God, then Holy Spirit will help us to see this.
As for the articles posted here on this site. It is my hope that all of you will pray for Holy Spirit to help you discern the truth.  
Look up the scriptures in any articles that you read here or from anyone.

Please note: Scriptures should be compared with other bible translations.  It is good to compare different translations.  It is even advisable to see what the Greek and Hebrew writings say...sometimes translators fail to convey an accurate rendering of the original languages.

In the many years that I have been “in the truth” as they say, I have learned many things. Some strongly entrenched things needed re-adjustments. 
When something new came to my ears, I would not summarily dismiss it as “sheer nonsense”, but I would listen carefully, and then check it out. Just as the ancient Beroeans checked the scriptures to see if what Paul said was true. 
To the physical man these things are "sheer nonsense" because he cannot perceive the spiritual application of the prophecies.(1Cor 2:14)   Physical men always try to fit what they "see" with their physical eyes, into the prophecy.
Prayer is of utmost importance.  The Heavenly Father will give understanding to those whose hearts are receptive.
(Mt 13:11) compare this to (Mt 13:14, 15)
 It is my prayer... that to you it is granted... to understand these things.  This is why you are looking.  You are seeking the truth.  Jesus said “keep on seeking and you shall find”. (Mt 7:7, 8) He also said "my sheep" know my voice.  
God's word is the seed and it is planted in hearts.(Luke 8:11) (Mt 13:19)  A heart (soil) that is good and fine can be receptive and retain it. (Luke 8:15) But this requires work on our part of course.
Well we all have need of endurance. Pray for God’s Kingdom to finally come on earth as it is in heaven.  Pray for each other to endure.
I hope everyone can be encouraged and find something new in what is written.
Pray for Holy Spirit in order to help you in your search. (Luke 11:13)

No anointed ones have all of the puzzle.   
  It is good to be a humble servant; if you have a different attitude then God will reveal this to you.) (Phil 3:15) (Luke 17:10)
There are many parts that make up the body.  
(Romans 12:3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8) (1Corinthians 12:14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21 25, 26, 27) No part can say I have no need of you. Each anointed one is only given a "portion" of Holy Spirit.  

In order to keep receiving Holy Spirit, they must remain in union with that spirit.  

To be in harmony with each other (all speak in agreement), you each must first be in agreement with the Holy Spirit and Jesus teachings.

A mathematics equation says that if ( A=B  and C=B , then A must also = C )
 This can be applied here:  If you (A) are in agreement with the Holy Spirit (B) and your brother (C) is in agreement with (B), then you (A) are in agreement with your brother (C).
This is how unity can be achieved.  If you both are in agreement with each other, but either you, your brother, or both of you are NOT in agreement with the Holy Spirit then there is no unity with the Holy Spirit.

Each one should examine their own teachings to make sure that they are in harmony with Jesus and the Holy Spirit.  Self reflection and refinement can be done through prayer to God.  Each one is responsible for what they teach. Each one must remove his own rafter or splinter from his own eye. Jesus will examine each slave individually. (Matt 25:19-24)

 Each one's work will be examined by fire. (1 Cor 3:13)  God's word is like a fire. (Jer 23:29)
(Matthew 12:36, 37)  
36 I tell YOU that every unprofitable saying that men speak, they will render an account concerning it on Judgment Day; 37 for by your words you will be declared righteous, and by your words you will be condemned.” 
This is a difficult task for all of us.  Jesus own disciples often argued over which one of them seemed to be the greatest. 
Even Jesus did not speak of his own originality (John 14:10).  He only spoke what his father taught him.  Jesus is your head. The eye only sees, the ear only hears.  
Luke 17:10 --If you keep this scripture in mind, you can remain humble. (Love for the  truth, love for one another, and keeping your own humility --are essential keys) 
(John 13:34, 35)  


To the chosen ones:
You have dedicated yourselves to do God's will.  God's will for you is his choice...in this respect he has chosen you as a part of the body of Christ...his son.

God chose the weak, humble, and foolish things to put wise men to shame.  
You are the foolish, weak, and ignoble ones he has chosen.  It is not for you to boast in yourselves, or to speak of your own initiative.
(1 Cor 3:13) (1Cor 4:6, 7)
(1 Corinthians 1:26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31) (1 Cor. 2:1, 2, 3, 4, 5).]

 Keep walking by spirit. Trust in God and do not lean upon your own understanding.(Proverbs 3:5, 6)
All interpretation of prophecy must be by means of scripture.(Gen 40:8), not "private interpretation" based upon what we might observe, (2 Pet 1:21) or conclude. If the meaning is not found in the Bible, it is not "from God", but from ourselves.  Read your Bible!  Back up what you believe with scriptures.


God's Word is not deficient (2 Tim 3:16), but is complete to help us with every hidden meaning. This makes sense: Jesus spoke in parables.  Revelation was given in signs or symbols. We should be looking for the hidden meanings by means of the scriptures.  Jesus disciples didn't immediately understand everything he said. They had difficulty grasping what Jesus meant, because they were thinking "physically".
 (Matthew 16:5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 12)(Mark 8:14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 21)


All "chosen " ones must keep in mind that you can prove faithful to this calling... or...you can fail to follow through in your vow to God.  Judas Iscariot was "chosen" by Jesus...but he did not remain faithful.  You must prove faithful until the end and be finally found spotless and unblemished. You are not sealed until then. 
 Jesus said: "Exert yourselves vigorously to get in through the narrow door, because many I tell you will seek to get in, but few will be able".   The master will settle accounts with each slave individually, when he returns. (Matt 25:19 - 33)

Please note: Jesus and his disciples publicly exposed the apostasy of the leaders. (Matthew 23:38, 39)  After that for about three and 1/2 years his disciples continued to preach to the Jewish nation.  Those that believed were thrown out of the synagogues.  All were hunted for and persecuted, beaten, and often physically killed. Jesus said when those in Jerusalem discerned that it was time to get out of her, they should flee to the mountains of Judea.  When "you the reader" discern that you are being asked to pledge your allegiance to the organization, over your loyalty to the Heavenly Father...

YOU    MUST TAKE A STAND FOR THE TRUTH.

(Organizations are run by men )  The Watchtower calls this the "arrangement". They think God approves of this.


God's true arrangement was the body of Christ his son.


If you place your loyalty to God and his son instead of this Organization run by men...You will be "thrown out"  (figuratively killed) for taking a stand for truth.  Those in the past who "championed Bible Truth" were persecuted and expelled, many were killed and imprisoned by their own religious leadership.  
(See January 2012 WT...first study article)


See article:  Do we need to get out of God's "house"?
pearl-leavehouse.blogspot.com ...

It will not be easy to see the need to get out, but perhaps this post by Pearl will help: 

Imagine yourself back in first century Jerusalem.

Please note:   God's household ... is different than the assumption that the "Jehovah's Witness" organization assume.   

God's household is in fact...the "true temple"...the genuine anointed slaves.
   What we need to "get out" from under is...the dominion of  the Organization and it's unfaithful  anointed leaders (The Harlot)... (By taking a stand for truth we will be thrown out)
Remember that Revelation says to "Get out of her" if you do not want to share with her in her sins. (Rev 18:4)
We have been taught that Babylon the Great is a world empire of false religion... however, this is wrong.   
Babylon the Great is really the "Mother" of the harlots... (mothers are covenants) ... Her harlot daughters have often been seen to be the harlot that is riding the religious wild beasts that have persecuted God's faithful anointed chosen ones.  Her daughter harlots have her name written on their foreheads.
(Rev 17:3, 4, 5, 6)
Mothers are covenants. 
(Galatians 4:24, 22, 26)
 ... see Pearl's article   http://pearl-thewoman.blogspot.com/

The Governing Body of the Watchtower organization has entered into a covenant with Babylon the Great. They have become her daughters.
  The Governing Body is the "Harlot" that rides the Watchtower Organizational Wild Beast.  
The "Mother of the harlots"... is (Babylon the Great).
The name written on the forehead of the harlot riding the wild beast is the name of their mother that they belong to. (Rev 17:5) This name denotes the harlots as slaves of Babylon the Great
...they are her harlot daughters because BTG is the "mother of the harlots".

Quick question:
Does having the name of God on the foreheads of the faithful 144,000 mean that the 144,000... are God?  
Is the name on their forehead their name... or Gods?  They are slaves of God. (Rev 14:1) ( Rev 7:3) (Rev 22:3, 4) (Rev 3:12)

Slaves in the days past had the mark of their owner on their foreheads.  And they also had markings showing their crime as well.
Pearl covers this subject at:
http://pearl-forehead.blogspot.com/

In contrast ... please take note... that the faithful anointed chosen ones also have a name on their foreheads:
...the faithful virgin daughters of the covenant of Sarah...(1 Pet 3:6) have the mark of their owner, the Father in Heaven, Jesus and their "Mother" (Sarah...the new covenant, Jerusalem above) on their foreheads. (Gal 4:26; Rev 3:12; 14:1, 4) (Rev 22:4)
(Faithful ones have Sarah/New Jerusalem above, as their "mother" covenant.)
  (Galatians 4:31, 24, 26, 28)

Revelation 18: 4 says to get out of her "my people". 

(Jeremiah 31:33)  (Hebrews 8:10)

This is a warning to the chosen anointed ones.  
"My People" are those who have already entered into a Covenant with God.  After they were accepted into it they became "God's People".

These are the ones who are given the warning to "get out" of Babylon the Great...the covenant with death. 
"My people" (God's household), are specifically the "Israel of God" 
(Galatians 6:16)

All anointed chosen ones must get out from being under submission to this covenant with death (Babylon the Great)  You cannot be in both covenants...no one can serve two masters.
The Governing Body has accepted that covenant with death.  All those in subjection to the Governing Body or it's Beast, come under subjection to the covenant of death as well.

In direct opposition to what Jesus said, the Governing Body is lording it over their "brothers" 
(Matthew 23:6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12) 

Like the tenants of God's vineyard... 
( Luke 20:9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19)
...they throw out all those that God has sent.  

They even "kill" or as (John 16:2) puts it "throw out of the synagogues" or congregations, all of the least of Jesus brothers and anyone else, who disagrees with them.  

They have also even made priests for themselves... 
("spiritual gentiles" elders)
 (2Chronicles 13:9) (Ezekiel 44:6, 7, 8, 9)  

But what about those of us who also want to do God's will? 
What do we do?
  We are those ten men who grab hold of the garment of a (spiritual) Jew in (Zechariah 8:23).   
We go with God's chosen ones.
  Jesus did say to "flee" Jerusalem when you catch sight of the disgusting thing in her.   If we catch sight of the disgusting thing...we also flee.
  The True God abandoned Jerusalem.  Jesus said "look your house is abandoned to you."  At this point Jesus himself left the "house" that was being unfaithful and was soon to be destroyed by God.  He said their house was abandoned to them and that they would no longer see him there.  
(Matthew 23:38, 39)  
So when the faithful brothers of Jesus go or are beaten out of the "house" of the wicked Steward...we will take a stand for the truth and be thrown out also.  (We will go with them). 
It will not be in the Kingdom Halls, or in any  "Mountain-like" organization  that we worship the True God...see what Jesus said here:  
 (John 4:20, 21, 23, 24)
 We worship God with spirit and truth.  
Why would we worship the "disgusting thing"... the idolatrous "image"? 
(Ezekiel 8:5,6) (Isa 1:12,15) (Matt.24:15,16) 
We go with the "TRUE TEMPLE"  The True Temple made by the "True God". (Eph 2:20) (1 Pet 2:9) (1 Cor 6:19) (1 Cor 3:16,17) (Acts 17:24). 
(This rift/earthquake/quaking in the soil of "Israel", was prophesied.) 
(Ezekiel 38:18,19,20) 
Those in the valley between these two sides must make their choice.)  

The dominion of the wicked Steward is his own physical house that he made. 

Jesus' household is his body that he chose.  It is his congregation of anointed ones. 
 At one time the wicked slaves were also part of that household, however, the wicked Steward stole, (by deception), some of the Master's slaves for himself, and set up his own "house"
 (Isa 22:11,15,16,17,18,19,25). 
 We are told that at the same time the wicked Steward begins to drink and get drunk.  He takes up an association with Gentiles instead of his fellow slaves of Christ.  Gentiles are"confirmed drunkards".  The Steward becomes just like them.
(Matt 24:49) (Isa 56:10) (Isa 29:9) (Lam 4:14)
 Gentiles are drunk with power.  They are spiritually blind like spiritually drunken men.  

  (1 Peter 5:8 ; Revelation 17:6; 12:4; Ezekiel 22:25,27 ; Jeremiah 51:7, 34 ).  

This steward "eats and drinks" the poisonous spiritual provisions provided from their new owner, rather than being fed by Christ.

Those anointed wishing to remain loyal to the Master must refuse accepting allegiance to the wicked Steward as their master (Who is beating Christ's brothers).  No one can slave for two masters.
We will not stand with the wicked Steward as some suggest we do. To do so means that we will share their plagues with them. 

The ten kings who rule with "The Beast" (Rev 17:12, 13)...are the unfaithful anointed ones, who have allowed themselves to be in subjection to the "Great Harlot"...the Governing Body. 
 These ten kings are also in submission to the Wild Beast that the "Great Harlot" rides. These ten kings have the mark of this beast on their foreheads and hands. They stay in this wild beast organization and will suffer the plagues. 
(Rev 14:9, 10)
They worship it's idolatrous image, as a "God- breathed",
(Rev 13:14, 15, 16)
The "spirit directed organization"...as the current baptism vows say:  
Question # 2 ...in association with "God's spirit directed organization".

This "Wild Beast Organization" is directed by a different spirit. 

   (Rev 13:2, 5)
...The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority.
The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months.
The organization is the Wild Beast!

   The Wild Beast and the Ten Kings (the anointed who rule along with the beast for one hour) are going to turn on the harlot... the Governing Body,... this "Great Harlot".  The Beast and these ten kings will eat up her fleshy parts.
(Rev 17:16, 17)
The Beast is going to be thrown into the lake of fire along with the False Prophet (Rev.13:11).
 Satan also will be thrown into the lake of fire.  Also everyone else that is still under the control of Satan (Rev. 9:11) (Rev 13:4, 8)...  and the Beast will go there. 
(Rev 19:20) (Rev 20:10, 14, 15)
