“…If we as individuals do not fully understand a certain position taken by the slave class, that is no reason for us to reject it or return to Satan’s world. Instead, loyalty will move us to act humbly and wait on Jehovah to clarify matters.” Watchtower 08/8-15
If we find ourselves in a position where another JW or elder is asking us questions about our loyalty to the GB. The above Watchtower article quoted is a good one to keep in mind. By simply stating there are some things you do not understand and that you are “waiting on Jehovah”, you can stop further questioning.
How many Jehovah’s Witnesses today are doing this? They have been programed to not reject anything from the Governing Body but to “wait on Jehovah” if we do not fully understand a certain position taken by the slave class. What about the helper that Jesus said he would send us?
John 15:26, “When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify about Me.”
John 14:16-17, “…and I will request the Father and he will give YOU another helper to be with YOU forever, the spirit of the truth, which the world cannot receive, because it neither beholds it nor knows it. YOU know it, because it remains with YOU and is in YOU.”
What about this helper that Jesus said will be with us forever? The helper is with us and remains in us? Why does the Governing Body not tell us to look to this helper? The spirit of truth? Personally I believe this is where we gain knowledge of truth, from Gods Holy Spirit and no man. Sure we can wait on Jehovah to correct the Governing Body but in the mean time rely on Gods Holy Spirit.
1 John 2:26-27, “These things I write YOU about those who are trying to mislead YOU. And as for YOU, the anointing that YOU received from him remains in YOU, and YOU do not need anyone to be teaching YOU; but, as the anointing from him is teaching YOU about all things, and is true and is no lie, and just as it has taught YOU, remain in union with him.”
If anyone is teaching you that Jesus is not your mediator and you can not be anointed because that number had been filled then they are trying to mislead you. They can’t open the door to heaven then close it and open it again as JW’s have done. They are only standing in the way of ones seeking a relationship with Jesus. We do not look to man but to God and his Holy Spirit for truth. Yes wait on Jehovah to correct others but move ahead learning truth from Christ and the helper he sends now and forever. If you wait on Jehovah to correct the GB/JWorg you might miss the boat. Get on board now!
Your brother in Christ,
