It was good to hear from you again Paj and I'd like to respond to your comments.
It would probably be a good idea for me to begin by explaining what I meant by the statement you are referring to since I would like to assure you it has nothing to do with judging people or wanting to look down on them or feel superior to them.
There are several commands that Jehovah always issues to the anointed ones that apply in the prophetic time frames in which another apostasy on the part of his appointed earthly shepherds "destroys" the "sanctuary" or "temple" spoken of in accounts like 1 Corinthians 3:16, 17 or Matthew 24:15, 16. Due to the fact that I greatly TREASURE my dear brothers and sisters as opposed to looking down on them or judging them, I have been directing their attention to these commands for several years now and demonstrating with reference scriptures exactly what these commands actually mean or otherwise exactly how they can be obeyed. I cherish them so much that I continue doing this despite knowing that most often it will only tend to increase any angry or resentful feelings they already have for me.
If I for example find myself considering things like criticisms or complaints of yet another ridiculous statement or false teaching from the Watchtower organization that someone heard at a recent meeting or read in a recent Watchtower article, this makes it painfully clear to me that they are still failing to obey commands such as found in accounts like 2 Corinthians 6:17 or Matthew 24:15, 16. Since I am keenly aware that Jehovah does not bless disobedient ones with things like an accurate understanding of his "sacred secrets," rest assured it comes as no surprise to me when I often find myself considering statements or understandings on spiritual matters from these very same people that I can easily overturn or refute with the scriptures. Despite the fact that I know they will never be able to fully grasp OR appreciate the ACCURATE understanding of the various scriptures and points I nonetheless feel compelled to share with them until if or when they begin to obey such commands, its because I DO NOT look down on them or judge them that I do so nonetheless.
it's merely a matter of the "formatting" of the content, as some may find it difficult to get through the post to sift out the main points you wished to bring to bare.
It would likely be very good for us to understand that formatting is actually among the various ways that Jehovah "carefully conceals" his "sacred secrets" from all but the eyes of the ones he wants to reveal them to. I was just recently pointing out what is perhaps the supreme example of this with the book of Revelation. Even aside from the deeply symbolic language it is absolutely saturated with, the fact is Revelation is formatted in a manner that I can only describe as simultaneously linear and layered. (Re 1:1) At the same time its formatting gives no indication whatsoever that it goes both forward and backward in time with the events it is referring to. Until the moment of my second anointing this formatting ALONE had me completely blinded to the better portion of what was actually being conveyed. Moreover even up until this moment I have never encountered ANY writings or statements from ANYONE other than those of ones like the Apostle Paul that would convince me they actually understand or otherwise WOULD have understood what is being conveyed in this book. There is no question in my mind that if Paul had still been alive at the time Revelation was written he would have immediately recognized a formatting technique used in it that would have seemed extremely remarkable to him. He also would have immediately understood the purpose of this formatting.
So beware not to develop a "prophet complex".
I don't believe I ever heard the term "prophet complex" before. Nevertheless I would suggest it might be a fitting description of at least ONE of the MANY things that currently afflict Sol Mayer. As you already seem to understand it is a VERY serious ailment. Even worse it is DEATH dealing, and in both a spiritual and literal sense.
Once again due to the fact that we ALL have been heavily programmed by the antichrist to constantly overlook the specific setting and context we are dealing with in any given scriptural passage, I see this as yet another good opportunity to remind my dear brothers and sisters to develop the habit of paying much closer attention to these things. But how might that be of tremendous benefit in this case?
Regardless of whether they realize it or not, identifying oneself as a prophet of Jehovah in a setting or time frame in which we are eagerly anticipating another foretold "coming of the kingdom" would IF ANYTHING amount to a humble and repentant confession rather than something like a presumptuous or prideful claim. We can be rather certain that a FALSE prophet would not be aware of this, or for that matter aware that to identify themselves with scriptural terms such as the "faithful and wise steward" or "appointed slave" would amount to the SAME as referring to themselves as a prophet, and specifically one IN that same setting. For that reason alone it's rather safe to assume such a claim on their part WOULD INDEED be rather prideful and presumptuous at the very least.
You see at least in a foretold setting of a broken holy marriage covenant that always reduces the anointed ones into spiritually "sleeping" "widows" and "virgins" in desperate need to in effect make it to the next foretold "marriage feast," taking on the identity of a prophet or otherwise an "APPOINTED slave" would involve just a bit more than pointing to yourself as one of the "two witnesses" or "inspectors" of the anointed ones appointed by Jehovah to actually begin producing the spiritual "feeding" and "clothing" necessary to have the broken kingdom covenant renewed with them. (Mt 24:45 25:1, 2, 5, 10) (La 1:1, 4) (Lu 19:44) Just as prophesies by ones like the Apostle John at the end of the first century make perfectly clear, this "sin of the priest" would require the very same cycle of events laid our for us in the early part of the first century or for that matter the ministry of the "son of man" or "two witnesses" several centuries beforehand which was conducted by Ezekiel and Jeremiah, and which resulted in the spiritual "birth" or renewed holy "covenant" that was manifested in ancient Babylon. (Le 4:3) (Re 11:3, 7, 11, 12) (Eze 2:1 17:12, 13, 16) (Da 2:47-49) The very same cycle of events in fact that occurred with the ministries of Haggai and Zechariah that led to the very same thing in connection with the Medo-Persian Empire. (Isa 44:28, 45:1)
I can assure you Paj that all this is by no means "unnecessary noise." Until the moment yet another ministry of the "two witnesses" can at least BEGIN to undo the IMMEASURABLE damage and commensurate spiritual blindness that yet anther broken holy covenant has inflicted on Jehovah's nation and people, it is a TINY FRACTION of what is needed to help the anointed "virgins" even BEGIN to grasp things like the following:
When a broken holy covenant "REMOVES" the Christ and by extension the atoning value of what up UNTIL that moment HAD BEEN a "CONTINUAL" value of its "sacrifice," and "PUTS IN ITS PLACE" a very "disgusting" counterfeit that immediately "DESTROYS" Jehovah's holy "sanctuary' or "temple" identified in accounts like 1 Corinthians 3:16, 17, this among other things means that the "two witnesses" or prophets who eventually arrive to "prepare the way" for another restoration of true worship on the earth would humbly and repentantly CONFESS to taking on such an identity. (Da 11:30-32) (2 Th 2:1-4) (Mt 24:15, 16) This is because a GENUINE prophet in these settings understands all too well things such as the following:
1. The ONLY thing that distinguishes them from the spiritually unclean and even "sleeping" anointed "widows" and "virgins" of this broken marriage covenant for the moment is that they are now the figurative "carcass" in the wilderness that any among these "virgins" who would choose to be recognized by Jehovah as "discreet" would now need to feed on like "eagles." (Mt 24:28 25:5) (Re 12:14) (Le 11:13)
2. Since these prophets are already keenly aware that the teachings and messages they are assigned to deliver will for the most part sound COMPLETELY different from basically EVERYTHING these "virgins" have been taught their entire lives as if it were a completely "new song," and also that they will generally find it rather "offensive" to be informed of things like the fact that they are essentially "unclean eagles" in DESPERATE need of both spiritual "feeding" AND the "clothing" involved with yet another atoning sacrifice or "call to heaven" of "killed witnesses," the ONLY reason they confess to being prophets is because they HAVE NO CHOICE! (Ro 9:33) (Re 11:3, 7, 11, 12 14:3) (Mt 25:34-36) (Mal 3:2, 3) They know all too well that such a title would only tend to increase the opposition and persecution they already face. They take on the identity of an actual teacher of the anointed only because it is among the examples laid out for them by their leader. (Lu 4:18. 19) (Mt 15:21)
Is any of this beginning to make more sense to you brother Paj?
