ALMIGHTY GOD IS PUTTING ETHIOPIANS TO DEATH.
THE FULFILMENT OF THE WORD OF GOD
IS NOW TAKING PLACE.
Jeremiah was prophet of God to the nations. Through His prophet, Jehovah describes the stubbornly rebellious spirit condition of Ethiopians today; that for Ethiopians schooled in evil to do good would be as incredible as changing their skin, or a leopard its spots. Each one follows "the promptings of his own stubborn and wicked heart." (11:8 NEB).
FALSE PROPHETS TODAY.
(Originating in Jerusalem, but existing in all nations today).
NO RAIN POSSIBLE FROM FALSE GODS. (Falsehood of sectarian religions exposed).
NO PRAYERS FOR ETHIOPIAN REBELS.
"For these are the words of the Lord: Enter no house where there is a mourning-feast; do not go in to wail or to bring comfort, for I have withdrawn My peace from this people, says the Lord, My love and affection." (16:5 NEB).
* Nubian: Ethiopian.
EGYPT AND ETHIOPIA AS A RANSOM
"For I am Jehovah your God, the Holy One of Israel your Saviour. I have given Egypt as a ransom for you, Ethiopia and Se'ba in place of you. Owing to the fact that you have been precious in My eyes, you have been considered honourable, and I Myself have loved you. And I shall give men in place of you, and national groups in place of your soul." (Isaiah 43:3,4). Rebellious spirits are being sacrificed for His servants and witnesses.
"And I will give them for a quaking to all the kingdoms* of the earth on account of Manasseh the son of Hezekiah, the king of Judah, for what he did in Jerusalem." (From Jer 15:4). Many Ethiopians today continue living in spirit rebellion against heavenly "Jerusalem". So after more than 2,600 years of rebellion, our Lord is giving "attention to their sins":
"This is what Jehovah has said concerning this people: "Thus they have loved to wander about; their feet they have not kept in check. So Jehovah Himself has taken no pleasure in them. Now He will remember their error and will give attention to their sins."" (14:10).
"FOUR FAMILIES" SENT BECAUSE OF
"This is what Jehovah has said: 'Whoever is for deadly plague, to deadly plague! And whoever is for the sword, to the sword! And whoever is for the famine, to the famine! And whoever is for the captivity, to the captivity! And I will commission over them four families,' is the utterance of Jehovah, 'the sword to kill, and the dogs to drag away, and the flying creatures of the heavens and the beasts of the earth to eat and to bring to ruin.'" (Jer 15:2,3).
The house of Manasseh was guilty of spiritistic practices, ba'al worship, and the shedding of innocent blood. (See 2 Kings 21:1-16 & 2 Chron 33:1-9). Justifiably, Almighty God is bringing such evils to an end: "I am taking no pleasure in them; for by the sword and by famine and by pestilence I am bringing them to their end." (14:12).
"…your acts of adultery and your neighings, your loose conduct in prostitution. Upon the hills, in the field, I have seen your disgusting things..." (13:27). So now, after many generations of spirit rebellion, no matter how much more time were to be granted them, the process of spirit reconciliation to God is not possible for Ethiopians schooled in evil since childhood. (13:23-27 NEB). So when they are struck down by the Lord, they must not be buried or mourned, just as it is written:
"For these are the words of the Lord concerning sons and daughters born in this place, the mothers who bear them and the fathers who beget them in this land: When men die, struck down by deadly ulcers, there shall be no wailing for them and no burial; they shall be like dung lying upon the ground. When men perish by sword or famine, their corpses shall become food for birds and for beasts." (From 16:1-4 NEB).
LEBANON: LIKE A "WOMAN GIVING BIRTH"?
THE "BIRTH PANGS"
"The time is but short before Lebanon goes back to grassland and the grassland is no better than scrub" was not merely a period of the prophet Isaiah's day, for Jeremiah prophesied: "O you who are dwelling in Leb'a.non, being nested in the cedars, how you will certainly sigh when there come to you birth pangs, the labour pains like those of a woman giving birth!" (See Jer 22:20-23 & Zech 11:1-3).
Further scrutiny of the prophecy of Isaiah reveals important developments yet to be fulfilled: "…out of the darkness even the eyes of the blind ones will see… rejoicing in Jehovah Himself… because the tyrant must reach his end..." (Isaiah 29:18-20).
WHO IS THE TYRANT? AND WHO IS LIKE A "WOMAN
Jehovah Himself is creating "new heavens" and a "new earth".
(Isaiah 65:17). And the heavenly "woman" of God will soon give new
Spirit birth to her anointed sons
"Look! Their very heroes have cried out in the street; the very messengers of peace will weep bitterly. The highways have been made desolate; the one passing over the path has ceased. He has broken the covenant; He has contemned the cities; He has taken no account of mortal man. The land has gone mourning, has withered away. Leb'a.non has become abashed; it has mouldered. Shar'on has become like the desert plain; and Ba'shan and Car'mel are shaking off their leaves. "Now I will rise up," says Jehovah, "now I will exalt Myself; now I will lift Myself up. You people conceive dried grass; you will give birth to stubble. Your own spirit, as a fire, will eat you up. And peoples must become as the burnings of lime. As thorns cut away, they will be set ablaze even with fire."" (Isaiah 33:7-12).
THE "PLAGUE OF HAIL" UPON BABYLON/IRAQ.
"The great city was split in three; the cities of the world fell in ruin; and God did not forget Babylon the great, but made her drink the cup which was filled with the fierce wine of His vengeance. Every island vanished; there was not a mountain to be seen. Huge hailstones, weighing perhaps a hundredweight, fell on men from the sky; and they cursed God for the plague of hail, because that plague was so severe." (From Rev 16:19-21 NEB).
This scripture has been quoted with
reference to the destructive fall and end of Babylon/Iraq. What will follow will
be the outpouring of the seventh "bowl" of the anger of God upon
the wealth and splendour of commercial "Babylon" and sectarian
"Babylon" in all cities of the world.
(16:17). For together
with Babylon/Iraq they make up the "three parts" of "Babylon
the great" to be remembered with the "fierce wine of His
vengeance". (16:19). With the fall of "Babylon the great"
the Rule of Almighty God Jehovah begins! (19:1
Currently a plague-like "hail" is falling from the sky upon the land and people of Iraq. This "plague of hail" is in the form of thousands of missiles and bombs raining down upon the wealth and splendour of Babylon/Iraq and laying it waste. From the commencement of the war on the 16th of January 1991, missiles and bombs have rained down ceaselessly, falling on men from the sky both day and night.
As the inhabitants of Babylon/Iraq utter curses against this "plague of hail" they are also cursing a judicial decision of God. (17:16,17 NEB). Jehovah has not forgotten the history and the legacy of Babylon/Iraq, and is executing His anger upon the sins of this cruel and Godless race. As evil offspring, they share the bloodguilt of their Godless forefathers, and are held to account for the shedding of the blood of God's people, just as it is written: "For the blood of the prophets and of God's people was found in her, the blood of all who had been done to death on earth." (18:24 NEB). This "plague of hail" is the execution of God's wrath upon the spirit rebellion of this part of "Babylon the great". (16:19-21 NEB).
THE RULE OF GOD IS "COMING LIKE A
THIEF" WITH JUDGEMENT.
"Flee out of Babylon, every man for himself, or you will be struck down for her sin; for this is the Lord's day of vengeance". (Jer 51:6 NEB).
"Get out of her, My people, if you do not want to share with her in her sins, and if you do not want to receive part of her plagues. For her sins have massed together clear up to heaven, and God has called her acts of injustice to mind." (Rev 18:4).
"KNOWING HE HAS A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME." (Rev
"Lend your aid and come, all you nations round about, and collect yourselves together. To that place, O Jehovah, bring Your powerful ones down. Let the nations be aroused and come up to the low plain of Jehoshaphat; for there I shall sit in order to judge all the nations round about." (Joel 3:11,12).
SONS OF ISRAEL WILL COME… QUIVERING
"Who is wise, that he may understand these things? Discreet, that he may know them? For the ways of Jehovah are upright, and the righteous are the ones who will walk in them; but the transgressors are the ones who will stumble in them." (Hosea 14:9).
"And it must occur that in the place in which it used to be said to them, 'You men are not My people,' it will be said to them, 'The sons of the Living God.'" (1:10).
These faithful sons of "Judah" and of "Israel" "will certainly be collected together into a unity", with "one head", and will "go up out of the land, because great will be the day of Jez're.el." (1:11). (Jez're.el: God will sow seed*).
loving unfaithful "Israel" instead of the commandments of God are
"Ahab" ba'al worshippers of the "disgusting thing"
that have profaned the sanctuary of God and that are to become an "object
of astonishment". (Micah 6:16. Dan 11:31). Jehovah is hedging their way
about with "thorn-bushes", obstructing "her" path
with a "wall", "so that she can no longer follow her old ways."
(Hosea 2:6 NEB).
Though chasing after those passionately loving "her", "she will not
find them." (2:7). Consequently, Jehovah is snatching back
"grain", "sweet wine in its season" and "wool"
covering their spirit nakedness. (2:9,10). Jehovah will desolate the
"vine" and "fig tree" that unfaithful "Israel"
has received as gifts from "her" "intense lovers"
We rejoice that Jehovah has prevailed over faithful anointed sons of spiritual "Judah" to send them into a spiritual "wilderness" condition to "speak to (their) heart." (2:14. Rev 12:14). Jehovah has begun to restore to us His fruitful "vineyards", turning troublesome ostracism into the "entrance to hope" for conducting the legal case of "My Husband" "You are My God." (2:15,16 & 23). Being ostracized for carrying on a legal case for Jehovah is how faithful anointed sons of God arrive at the "entrance to hope". (2:2) (Achor: ostracism, trouble). Jehovah allures His people back by the seed* of troublesome ostracism, which is the "entrance to hope". (2:15).
Unfaithful "Israel" has stopped following Jehovah and are making "sacrificial smoke" to their dungy idols of ba'al and the rules fabricated by these JW apostates. "The quarrel with you, false priest, is Mine", says Jehovah. (4:4 NEB). For they have "proceeded to dedicate themselves to the shameful thing, and they came to be disgusting like the thing of their love." (9:10).
"ON THE DAY OF THE LORD'S SACRIFICE".
"Silence before the Lord God! for the day of the Lord is near. The Lord has prepared a sacrifice and has hallowed His guests. On the day of the Lord's sacrifice I will punish the royal house and its chief officers and all who ape outlandish fashions. On that day I will punish all who dance on the temple terrace, who fill their master's house with crimes of violence and fraud." (Zeph 1:7-9 NEB).
HOW THE "ROYAL HOUSE" AND ITS
Primarily, the "royal house" described in this scripture is that of King David, from whom natural born Jews trace their descent. On the day of the Lord's sacrifice Almighty God will punish all those among them or allied to them who exercise authority over the people through the use of outlandish garb, violence (military force), ethnic segregation, or commercial usury and fraud. In contravention of the Law of God, many Jews run financial institutions and banks practicing usury (lending with interest). (See Ezek 18:5-9 NEB).
"CRIMES OF VIOLENCE AND FRAUD". (Zeph 1:9 NEB).
"For all the
traders are undone, the merchants are wiped out. For I am searching Jerusalem
with a lamp, to punish careless men, living at ease, who think the Eternal never
Although declaring themselves rabbis, Jews wearing such bizarre attire
often excel at weaving commerce into their activities, some even
officiating as chief officers at Davidic ceremonies. They know full well
the Law of God against usury. But still they lend at interest to acquire
wealth and power over others
HIERARCHY OF SECTS.
"Consider the man who is righteous and does what is just and right. He never feasts at mountain-shrines, never lifts his eyes to the idols of Israel, never dishonours another man's wife, never approaches a woman during her periods. He oppresses no man, he returns the debtor's pledge, he never robs. He gives bread to the hungry and clothes to those who have none. He never lends either at discount or at interest. He shuns injustice and deals fairly between man and man. He conforms to My statutes and loyally observes My laws. Such a man is righteous: he shall live, says the Lord God." (Ezek 18:5-9 NEB).
"For ye men shall put on more adornments than a woman, And coloured garments more than a virgin: In royalty and in grandeur and in power, And in silver and in gold and in purple, And in splendour and in food they shall be poured out as water. Therefore they shall be wanting in doctrine and wisdom, And they shall perish thereby together with their possessions; And with all their glory and their splendour, And in shame and in slaughter and in great destitution, Their spirits shall be cast into the furnace of fire." (Book of Enoch 98:2,3).
THE "GREAT EARTHQUAKE"
"THE SECOND WOE IS PAST. LOOK!
More importantly, it marks the end of the second woe, and the next event "coming quickly": The blowing of the seventh "trumpet" heralding "the kingdom of the world did become the Kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He will rule as King forever and ever." (11:15). The seventh "trumpet" has already been 'sounded' (though not as yet blown) with the spiritual revelations of the "Little Scroll", signalling the end of gathering persons through the "good news"* of The Christ. (10:7). The blowing of the seventh "trumpet" will herald the commencement of the Rule of God, which will bring about the wrath of the nations and instigate the wrath of God upon them. (11:18).
Note: Giving glory to God by the exercise of faith in the "good news"* of The Christ could only have been achieved through accurate knowledge of the Will of God, being active in His service, and by one's progressive sanctification. It therefore required time to accomplish.
The "sounding" of the "seventh angel" also signals "the cup of the wine of the anger" of God upon worshippers of such false gods as the Madonna venerated by millions of idol worshippers in Mexico, and all other idol worshippers ruining life on earth. (16:19 Greek T.) (See Page 19/8/85). But will those who remain over become frightened and give glory to the God of heaven? Perhaps further calamities will be necessary. But giving glory to God through fear of calamity is not as valued as giving glory to Him by faith. The impending desolation of Egypt will be an even greater social upheaval. The "great city" of "Babylon the Great" of Revelation 16:19 which splits into three parts is a symbolic expression of God used to describe:
EARTHQUAKE: Volcanic convulsion of earth's surface; fig. social or other upheaval.
OF THIS PRESENT PERIOD PRIOR TO THE RULE OF GOD.
We are now living in the period and related events of the "sounding" "voice" of the seventh angel before he blows his "trumpet" to herald the commencement of the everlasting Rule of God, both in heaven and on earth. (Rev 11:15 & 10:7. See Greek T.)
The details of this are described in scripture: That during the period of the "sounding" of the seventh angel's "trumpet", the "good news" of salvation by The Christ came to a finish, and those to be saved by Almighty God Jehovah through faith in His Christ Jesus (the "good news") was decided upon. Thereafter, people may only give glory to God out of fear as they witness calamitous events taking place on earth by the power of God. (11:13).
When Jehovah begins His Rule, those who do not know God and those who do not obey the "good news" about our Lord Jesus, whether alive on earth (the 'living dead') or already dead and buried, "will undergo the judicial punishment of everlasting destruction from before the Lord". (2 Thess 1:6-9). They will not inherit the Spirit creative benefits of the Kingdom Rule of God.
"This takes into account that it is righteous on God's part to repay tribulation to those who make tribulation for you, but, to you who suffer tribulation, relief along with us at the revelation of the Lord Jesus from heaven with his powerful angels in a flaming fire, as he brings vengeance upon those who do not know God and those who do not obey the good news about our Lord Jesus. These very ones will undergo the judicial punishment of everlasting destruction from before the Lord and from the glory of his strength". (2 Thess 1:6-9).
Obeying the "good news" has taken time and considerable effort. To be truly obedient to the "good news" of our Lord Jesus, certain changes have had to be made in our lives as our spirits are readjusted. These changes are based on our growing knowledge of the Will of God and part of our appeal to God for a "good conscience". (1 Peter 3:21). In accord with our allegiance to God, we were baptized in symbol of our vow to dedicate our lives to carry out the Will of God for us. (1 Peter 4:1,2). "Most truly I say to you, Unless anyone is born from water and Spirit (baptism), he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God." (John 3:5). Time was needed to accomplish this through faith. So as the opportunity extended to mankind through the "good news" was being brought to a finish during 1982, there wasn't enough time left to be subjected to God through faith in the "good news" of The Christ. (10:7) (See diagram on Page 879).
Through the earthquake that occurred in Mexico City in 1985, the inhabitants were being warned of their Godless spirit aspect and idol worship. As prophesied "a tenth of the city fell; and seven thousand [men] were killed by the earthquake". (11:13). The earthquake was the first of many calamities to take place by the power of God, and was even an act of mercy in that it gave advance warning to those remaining to give glory to God even out of fear. (11:13). But did the survivors of Mexico City, or of any other nation, become frightened and give glory to the God of heaven? Time is running out before Almighty God Jehovah begins His Rule by means of His Christ and His Judgement of mankind begins. (Rev 11:15-19 & 16:17-21).

THE CAUSES AND SOURCES OF INJURIOUS SCHEMES (Ezek 38:10)
THE JUDGEMENT FROM JEHOVAH.
SATAN MAKES TWO MAJOR ATTACKS.
HONOURING FATHERS AND MOTHERS.
"God spoke, and these were His words: I am the Lord your God who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other god to set against Me… Honour your father and your mother, that you may live long in the land which the Lord your God is giving you." (From Exodus 20:1-17 NEB).
A dilemma: What if one's own father and mother continually dishonour God? Should we still honour them? For example, if they covet, or steal, or bear false witness against others, or worship false gods instead of Almighty God, or commit adultery, or even murder, should we still honour such parents? The answer: You cannot honour dishonourable conduct.
If they fornicate, or have fits of rage, or create discord in other ways, such as through jealousy, drinking bouts, or have selfish ambitions, or indulge in orgies, or in other forms of idolatry, should you still honour them? Certainly not! For if you do, you are sharing with them in their sins and condoning their behaviour by continuing to hold them in high esteem, thereby dishonouring the Spirit Law of God. Parents indulging in any of the aforementioned sins are not fathers or mothers deserving of honour from their offspring.
"Anyone can see the kind of behaviour that belongs to the lower nature: fornication, impurity, and indecency; idolatry and sorcery; quarrels, a contentious temper, envy, fits of rage, selfish ambitions, dissensions, party intrigues, and jealousies; drinking bouts, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who behave in such ways will never inherit the Kingdom of God. But the harvest of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, fidelity, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law dealing with such things as these. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have [sacrificed] the lower nature with its passions and desires. If the Spirit is the source of our life, let the Spirit also direct our course." (Gal 5:19-25 NEB).
To avoid dishonouring Almighty God our Heavenly Father, what can sons and daughters do regarding dishonourable parents? Since "love means following the commands of God", we cannot share in a close relationship with those practicing such sins and continuing to live according to the "lower nature" of the flesh. (2 John V.6 NEB). Honour is a spiritual quality, and must be earned by one's obedience to the Word of God. God is Holy.
THE "OBSCURE EXPRESSION".
"We are looking for right now through mirror in obscure expression, then but face toward face; right now I am knowing out of part, then but I shall know accurately according as also I was accurately known." (1 Cor 13:12 Greek T.)
"At present we only see the baffling reflections in a mirror, but then it will be face to face; at present I am learning bit by bit, but then I shall understand, as all along I have myself been understood." (1 Cor 13:12 Moffatt).
PAUL PURSUED THE "OBSCURE EXPRESSION," LOVE.
But before one can truly show love to another, knowledge of
that person and their weaknesses is required. Further, one who has knowledge of
all the parts of the love of God is truly subject to Him, and so would
understand how best to use this knowledge to best effect. For this reason we are
told to "pursue love", which means to acquire accurate knowledge
of the love of God, and to offer the appropriate part willingly for others. But
not unwisely, as love does not "rejoice over unrighteousness, but rejoices
with the truth." (1 Cor 14:1) (1 Cor 13:6). By blinding Paul to bring him to
his senses, Christ showed love to him, opening the way for him to gain
everlasting life. Christ adopted this means to gain Paul's attention, for him to
listen and be taught.
LOVE "DOES NOT KEEP
ACCOUNT OF THE INJURY".
("Reckoning". 1 Cor 13:5 Greek T.)
Judas Iscariot and Ananias sinned in word and deed against
the Holy Spirit of God.
In summary: You cannot show true love to another
unless first you have knowledge of that one's weaknesses and spiritual need.
When we accurately know all the parts of perfect spiritual love "face to
face", it will no longer be an "obscure expression". Those
preferring to practice the "deep things of satan" will come face
to face with shame. (Isaiah 66:5). Only when that which is complete,
perfect love, is accurately known by all members of the "body" of Christ and
implemented, will partial knowledge of "The Way" previously
made known through gifts of the Spirit such as prophesying, speaking in
tongues, and even knowledge itself, cease. (1 Cor 13:8
My love to all the brothers of The Christ and to those of the "other sheep" calling upon his name.
"THE GREATEST OF THESE
"Now, however, there remain faith, hope, love,
One cannot have spirit unity with
God, or exercise true faith according to accurate knowledge (1 John 4:7)
(Heb 11:1 NEB),
or have one's hope of an immortal and incorruptible life
within a regenerated spiritually quickened "body" realized (Rom 8:11. 1 Cor 15:44-46 & 15:50-54)
True love means obeying the commandments of God. (2 John V.6). Love embraces all of the spiritual virtues, both in earthly life and in one's future heavenly life; promoting a degree of happiness now, which is made complete and eternal in heaven. (Matt 5:3-12).
The love of God through The Christ is evident in those exercising true faith, for they submit to the administration of spirit readjustment according to Christ's knowledge of them, and are freed from the superfluous badness inherent in their sinful human nature. (1 Cor 13:12. James 1:21).
But without the active works of true faith, there is no hope. (James 2:18-26). Love embraces, develops and governs good principle (agapé). But while love encompasses goodwill and feelings of warm affection for others in the faith, it is not misguided by sentimentality, and hates wickedness. Love is a quality of, and from, Jehovah God, felt by His devoted servants. It has faith and hope incorporated in it. Jesus said: "If you observe my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have observed the commandments of the Father and remain in His love." (John 15:10).
"THE OBJECT OF ASTONISHMENT."
(In fulfilment of Isaiah 13:9, 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 and Micah 6:16 NWT).
of the sect falsely calling themselves Jehovah's Witnesses have been forced to reveal to
the world that as of 2002 they have been concealing more than twenty-three
thousand seven hundred (23,720) reported cases of child sex abuse (paedophilia)
committed by members of their organization worldwide. They have a concealed
database record of the names and complaints of their many child victims who
were, and are still, suffering the fear and shame of sexual acts being committed
on their bodies, and while still being forced to attend congregation meetings.
While this is happening, the children are also led to believe that they will be
ostracized and left totally isolated by their congregation should they make
these shameful acts public, because their
instil this fear into the children in their care. There are, I am sure, many
thousands more than the 23,720 victims that BBC investigative journalists and
ex-JWs have managed to extract from these concealed records
The programme shown on BBC1 TV on the 14th July 2002 at 10:15 p.m. entitled 'Suffer The Little Children' disclosed to viewers the most shocking and obscene behaviour being carried out by fathers on their own children while calling themselves Jehovah's Witnesses. And, in some cases, even on children of other families. Finally, in absolute desperation, some of the abused children went to the police. We heard astonishing details from just a few of the many thousands of children who have been abused by men in their congregations, but who were illegally protected by their evil church 'elders'. Only a few abusers have been convicted and imprisoned.
help from their child victims are ignored by church
who repeatedly quote Matthew 18:15
This sect falsely calling themselves Jehovah's Witnesses has fulfilled every one of the details listed in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12. Particularly where it states: "So that is why God lets an operation of error go to them, that they may get to believing the lie, in order that they all may be judged because they did not believe the truth but took pleasure in unrighteousness." (2:11,12).
Many of their lies are described in great detail in The Opened "Little Scroll" (Subject Index: 'Jehovah's Witnesses'). Almighty God warned such people: "…to the end that I may make you an object of astonishment and her inhabitants something to be whistled at; and the reproach of peoples you men will bear." (From Micah 6:16).
Their house to house preachers still knocking on doors did "trample" on faithful anointed sons of God during the 2,300 "evenings and mornings" of Daniel 8:13,14 and so shall become "like the mire of the streets" and a reproach to all peoples on earth. (Micah 7:10).
Almighty God has abandoned this apostate organization falsely calling themselves "Jehovah's Witnesses". Wherever you are: "Get out of her, My people, if you do not want to share with her in her sins". We did, and we thank God. (Rev 18:4).
RAMPANT INCEST IS BEING ALLOWED
The following details were transcribed from the BBC1 television programme 'Panorama' broadcast in Britain on the 14th of July 2002. The investigating reporter, Betsan Powys, revealed matters of serious concern to people of every nation: The rampant incestuous sexual abuse being inflicted upon many children of the sect falsely calling themselves Jehovah's Witnesses. The programme was called: 'Suffer The Little Children'.
Two years ago,
'elders' from one of their churches heard a
shocking story. A young woman of their congregation at Stevenson on the Ayrshire
coast of Scotland told them that:
"Her father was sexually abusing her. The
elders called her a liar. The elders sent her home to her father. They didn't
tell her that three years earlier he'd confessed to them that he was abusing her
sister." (He had been abusing her sister from the age of 11 until she was 15).
"So she gave them an ultimatum: Either they did something or she'd go to the
police. They did nothing." Alison then went to the police, warning them that her
father had contact with other young girls in the church and had been sexually
abusing a friend of Alison's. Only during the police investigation did she
discover that: "The elders had kept a record of her father's name and confession
on a church database
Bill Bowen had been a lifelong member of Jehovah's Witnesses and had been an 'elder' from 1984 to 2000, but resigned. He said: "The men at the top protect the church, not the children. They do not want people to know that they have this problem. By covering it up they hurt just one person, by letting it out then they hurt the image of the church." Apparently: "Elders must report abuse to the church's legal desk. Only if the law demands it must they contact the police. If it doesn't, they may be told they have a moral duty to call them, but often it seems to stop there. It seems to go no further than the church's own secret database."
Despite there being a total of 23,720 recorded cases of sexual abuse in the USA, Canada and Europe in the secret database of Jehovah's Witnesses, one of their members stated: "Focusing on numbers isn't important." To date (2002), campaigners from the US organization 'Silent Lambs' have heard from 5,000 victims. Bill Bowen is now calling for JWs to "come clean." "Once they're found out, it causes their own members to be deeply disturbed," he said.
Another father who abused his daughters, Heather Berry and her sister Holly Brewer from New Hampshire, is serving a minimum of 56 years imprisonment. The sisters are now taking JWs to court. The sisters call themselves the first survivors. When the BBC interviewer sought an interview with JWs at their headquarters, she said: "Jehovah's Witnesses refused an interview, but sent a box of video tapes instead." We also heard their mother Sara Poisson say concerning her two daughters: "My loyalty to the church cost my daughters dearly." Her husband Paul Berry also beat them. Sara Poisson reported her husband's ruthless incestuous abuse to the church. The 'elders' solution was that she be a better wife and pray more; that it was a bad thing to speak against her husband. A policeman said two dozen JWs turned up at the court hearing to provide the abuser with good character references. After Paul Berry was sentenced, the JWs said that they did not believe the children, the judge, the jury, or the system of justice. The policeman, Detective Sergeant Jack Zeller from the New Hampshire Police Dept said:
"Paul Berry had already been found guilty, and they found room in their hearts to stand in front of that child and say, 'We don't believe any of it.' What they were saying was they didn't believe anyone except themselves..." Referring to JW members he said in great anger: "Shame! Shame on them!"
In the UK, Sgt. Steve Colley of West Midlands Police referred to a Simon Brady of Birmingham, a Jehovah's Witness who had been severely abused. JW 'elders' had said that unless they could provide two Jehovah's Witnesses who had actually seen the offence, then as far as they were concerned the offence hadn't taken place. Simon Brady said that when he was nine he was sexually abused by someone from their kingdom hall, Mr. Jaswant Patty. JW 'elders' wouldn't believe Simon Brady or his father. Patty was sentenced to five years in jail. Under police pressure the 'elders' at Bethel apologized, and the local 'elders' were demoted, but not sacked. The police contacted the JWs legal team at Bethel and informed them of a lack of co-operation in the police inquiry.
At one of their conventions in Tulsa in the US, Ted Jarrett, a member of their governing body and one of the men responsible for child protection, was asked questions by Betsan Powys of 'Panorama': "Tell me about the databases. How do you justify keeping a list of people, men in some cases, who have confessed to paedophilia, but you have not reported them to the authorities? What justification is there for you to keep that list?" His reply was: "You know, you're from Britain, you have a privacy law. You have a directive from the European Union. You observe that, don't you?" Then she asked him: "So when allegations of abuse are made, it's all right to keep it private?" He replied: "I think you were answered. That question was answered. It should be to your satisfaction." She then asked: "Could you answer it now?" He said: "I'm not going to repeat it. I'll just tell you exactly that you can go, and you will see it in writing. It's all in print. You know, the Bible says, 'Do not go beyond the things that are written'. We don't go beyond the things written."
Campaigner Bill Bowen in his summing up said: "They're living in denial; denial of what's happening to their children. And if they accept that, then they accept that there is a problem. So rather than admit there is a problem, they will just let children go on and continue to be molested and not do anything about it."
The exposure of the immoral filth practised within the Jehovah's Witnesses organization is too important ever to be forgotten. Now that it has been made public, international law enforcement agencies should investigate, and force JWs to hand over the records of abuse they hold on their secret database so that sexual abusers of children can be brought to trial. If nothing is done, then congregations of JWs will continue to shelter abusers. Foster carers should be selected to provide a safe environment for victims of abuse and the State should provide some form of deprogramming facilities for them. I appeal to God, and to compassionate readers of this article, to please help. These are not sufferings The Christ meant for children who "come to me".
The apostle Paul's letter to Timothy makes it abundantly clear that an elder must know how to preside over his own household. (1 Tim 3:2-7). An accusation of molestation from a family member, or from anyone else, is proof that the man is not presiding over his own household or over a congregation of God in a fine manner. JW member Ted Jarrett, and indeed all JWs must be held accountable for the sexual abuse being suffered by child members of their congregations.
PRIESTS OR POLITICIANS?
Politicians administer the will of the people.
Anointed priests administer the Will of God.
"For the lips of a priest are the ones that should keep knowledge, and the Law is what people should seek from his mouth; for he is the messenger of Jehovah of armies." (Mal 2:7).
FOR THE UNENLIGHTENED.
Projecting themselves as governments-in-waiting, opposing political parties try to persuade the people to endorse their campaigns and reject the current political administration. Political parties do this to divert attention away from the obligation of mankind to serve the Will of the Supreme Authority, Almighty God. By warring against the Spirit authority of anointed underpriests of God (the future members of His heavenly government), enemies of God acquire the political "mark" of satan's reign ("666"-years) as those who refuse to be created in the spirit "image" and "likeness" of Almighty God and his Son The Christ Michael. (Rev 13:7 & 16-18) (Gen 1:26).
OTHER ENEMIES OF GOD.
But neither the supporters of the
political "wild beast" or members of the sectarian "harlot"
could have achieved such success against the Kingdom developments of God and His
underpriests on earth unless "the dragon (satan) gave to the
beast its power and its throne and great authority." (Rev 13:2).
Consequently, those with the "mark" are satan's subjects, solely
promoting political alternatives. (See Page 29/9/86)
(See Mal 2:7
The sufferings of mankind are caused by their demonically-inspired activities in defiance of the Spirit Will of Almighty God, clearly evident in countries clamouring for demoncratic government that is ultimately destined for destruction. (Rev 19:20). So what can be said of those who yearn to live under the Kingdom Rule of God and refuse to receive the "mark" of destruction of the "wild beast", the "false prophet", and sectarian "Babylon"?
those who obey the Will of God do so by deeds of faith, while those
THE "FALSE PROPHET". (Rev 16:13,14).
A SINGULAR OR COMPOSITE CREATURE? (OF ONE OR MANY PARTS?)
Demonically inspired expressions
issue through the mouths of many individuals, from more than just the three
'creatures' described. They are active in every nation, and "go
forth to the kings of the entire inhabited earth, to gather them together to the
war of the great day of God
(16:14). According to their response to demonic expressions, people are
being gathered by their rebellious spirit aspect before God to the symbolic
"place" called Har
Although millions of people have
involved themselves in various world aid programmes, as an idol and a
"false prophet" Geldof is prominent among them. But he is merely one of
a large number of practising idols (false gods of the people) being used by
satan and his demons to gather world leaders and their people to the war at
"LEND YOUR AID AND COME". (Joel 3:11).
MICHAEL WILL "RAISE THE LOW
Jehovah has promised: "All is changed; raise the low and bring down the high. Ruin! Ruin! I will bring about such ruin as never was before, until the rightful sovereign comes. Then I will give him all." (Ezek 21:26,27 NEB).
The spirit disposition of Michael
the Son of God will bring the exalted ones of this world's spiritual
"darkness" down to a low state, while exalting the spirits of lowly
ones. (Isaiah 60:1-3). Because of the excessive sinning of the people inhabiting
the land of Israel* their ruin was
foretold, and this is how it has been for them until now. (Ezek 22:1
ISRAELIS USE "THEIR POWER TO SHED BLOOD". (Ezek 22:6,7 NEB)
As to Michael raising the
"low" ones, it means he will exalt the spirits of faithful lowly ones of
God worldwide. Michael will bring down the "high" ones throughout
the world by shaming and humiliating their exalted rebel spirits. In contrast to
the evil power and rebellion of the political leaders of literal Israel, the
lowly anointed sons of spiritual "Israel" will soon be exalted to heaven. With
their God-given holy power restored, they will inherit life-giving spiritual
responsibilities from Michael. (Rev 5:9,10). The "dashing of the power of
the holy people to pieces" during the "2,300 evening and mornings",
when remaining anointed sons of God on earth were ostracized, "trampled"
on and excommunicated from Christ's congregations, has already been brought
to a finish. (Dan 8:8-14. Rev 11:1-3) (Dan 12:7). The waning of the evil spirit
power of the "high" ones, and the ascendancy of the Spirit power
of God, will cause the world great distress. Many will be destroyed and shall
become an eternal abhorrence. But faithful anointed sons of God, who
"guided the people in the true path", have accurate knowledge of the
THE LAST INDICATOR BEFORE
THE WRATH OF GOD IS POURED OUT.
"THE LOST OUTNUMBER
THE SAVED AS A WAVE
"The angel replied: 'The seed to be sown depends on the
soil, the colour on the flower, the product on the workman, and the harvest on
the farmer. There was once a time before the world had been created for men to
dwell in; at that time I was planning it for the
sake of those who now exist. No one then disputed My plan, for no one existed. I supplied
this world with unfailing food and a mysterious Law;
but those whom I created
turned to a life of corruption. I looked at My world, and there it lay spoilt,
at My earth in danger from men's wicked thoughts;
and at the sight I could scarcely bring Myself to spare them. One grape I saved
out of a cluster, one tree out of a
forest. So then let it be:
destruction for the many who were born in vain, and salvation for
My grape and My tree, which have cost Me such labour
to bring to perfection." (2 Esdras 9:17
"In the last days, then, the inhabitants of the world will be punished for their arrogant lives by bitter sufferings. But you, Ezra, should direct your thoughts to yourself and the glory awaiting those like you. For all of you, paradise lies open, the tree of life is planted, the age to come is made ready, and rich abundance is in store; the city is already built, rest from toil is assured, goodness and wisdom are brought to perfection. The root of evil has been sealed off from you; for you there is no more illness, death is abolished, hell has fled, and decay is quite forgotten. All sorrows are at an end, and the treasure of immortality has been finally revealed. Ask no more questions, therefore, about the many who are lost. For they were given freedom and used it to despise the Most High, to treat His Law with contempt and abandon His ways. Yes, and they trampled on His just servants; they said to themselves, "There is no God", though well aware that they must die. Yours, then, will be the joys I have predicted; theirs the thirst and torments which are prepared. It is not that the Most High has wanted any man to be lost, but that those He created have themselves brought dishonour on their Creator's Name, and shown ingratitude to the One who had put life within their reach. My day of Judgement is now close at hand, but I have not made this known to all; only to you and a few like you.'" (2 Esdras 8:50-62 NEB).
"Just as everything that is done on earth has its
beginning and end clearly marked, so it is with the
times which the Most High has determined: their beginning is marked by portents
and miracles, their end by manifestations of power.
'Whoever comes safely through and escapes destruction, thanks to his good deeds
or the faith he has shown, will survive all the dangers I have foretold and
witness the salvation that I shall bring to My land, the country I have marked
out from all eternity as My own. Then those who have misused My Law will be
taken by surprise; their contempt for it will bring them continual torment. All
who in their lifetime failed to acknowledge Me in spite of all the good things I
had given them, all who disdained My Law while freedom still was theirs, who
scornfully dismissed the thought of penitence while the way was still open
It is of paramount importance that mankind learn the truth of their obligations to the Most High and carry them out now, rather than wait and learn the truth through torments after death! (9:12 NEB).
MANIFESTATIONS OF THE POWER OF THE MOST HIGH.
In fulfilment of Revelation 11:13, a tenth of the city was destroyed and 7,000 men were killed in the earthquake in Mexico City in 1985. Another manifestation of the power of the Most High has been the war and ongoing desolation of Babylon/Iraq, where over 100,000 people have been killed so far. We now await the imminent Rule of God when all those who "destroy the earth" shall themselves be destroyed. (Rev 11:18 NEB).
