Bethel Repeats a Classic Pattern
Actually the statistical illusion used by the GB who have now stumbled maybe four or five times as many or more people then there are JWs indicates a steady decline in a period that should be 2 and 3 times the current nearly negative growth rate.
That means hidden in the trends and actual numbers is a “board of directors” that has reduced the JW corporate “market share” by 10% in just 37 years of oversight. And they say nothing about the actual ominous trend, instead they pop out figures that in themselves seem impressive until one knows the relative proportion of decline is even greater.
Now JWs stumble more people everyday than are “brought into the truth”, the org has the highest turnover and poorest retention rates of all world religions.
The Bethel criminal activities in spiritual dimensions increasing in proportion to the decline is the answer to this noted plummet in JW growth and retention. It is apparent in dubious alliances, financial partnerships and methods, in policies and stumbling tactics of waffling and many other things that now “pile up clear to heaven” as Bethel surpasses other religions in actually troubling people, creating outcry and turning more people away from God than to Him. (2Pet2:1-3; 2Thess2:1-4).
JWs are fooled by the relative numbers and a lot of high-falootin claims to the contrary, but the numbers and trends do not lie in raw form over 60 years of WT decline under 40 years GB dictatorial power. (Hag1; Mal1-2). It is so striking a decline and reproach you wonder why the GB says nothing, it is as if they are doing it on purpose, running the JW org into the ground, and positioning the assets for later absorption into the legal conduits ultimately out of WT control.
A thing like the UN NGO itself in a decade has to have stumbled 4 million people conservatively, maybe more, worldwide. And somehow JWs feel OK with those numbers on the Bethel tab, not to mention the blowback from the icy shunning policy and the pedophile support and procurement congregational atmosphere of encouraged and protected sexually predatory activity; worldwide.
It does not take a wiseman or prophet to understand the hidden lawlessness in worldwide congregations exacerbated and exemplified by core Bethel brazen abuses is far far worse than has already been exposed in just the sexual abuse of children and other deviant behavior from core congregational leaders, not to mention freelancers.
If God did arrive on the scene, it would be to raze the JW organization for the reproach on him, not to deliver JWs to any paradise current conditions have turned into a form of spiritual hell fueled by the lawless incorrigibility of the Governing Body, Bethel and WTS elites who have lost all actual moral and scriptural compass, and merely cover up the abuses with parroted dialogue and therapeutic echoes of a JW past that is long gone.
JWs are in a sever illusion that gradually spread in three decades of intensified GB corruption to today’s terminal systemic proportion. (Rev8:10-11; 2Thess2:3; Zech3:1-3). JWs are the frog in hot water now, too late to simply reverse this trend of sins and abuses guided by upper management.
As if Jesus and John the Baptist or the apostles were constantly at Jerusalem “fashion island” getting fringe extensions and fancy robes and sandals.
There are a number of scriptures many JWs forget to read, because Bethel “forgets” to comment on this things in the WT Enquirer for the celebrity gig Bethel promotes by GB stardom:
(James 2:1-4) My brothers, you are not holding the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, our glory, with acts of favoritism, are you? 2 For, if a man with gold rings on his fingers and in splendid clothing enters into a gathering of you, but a poor [man] in filthy clothing also enters, 3 yet you look with favor upon the one wearing the splendid clothing and say: “You take this seat here in a fine place,” and you say to the poor one: “You keep standing,” or: “Take that seat there under my footstool,” 4 you have class distinctions among yourselves and you have become judges rendering wicked decisions, is that not so?
(Luke 17:10) So you, also, when you have done all the things assigned to you, say, ‘We are good-for-nothing slaves. What we have done is what we ought to have done.’”
“Good for nothing slave” is not good enough for the GB elites who do not do the things assigned to them anyways. Now like Jerusalem under the Pharisaic elites, JWs are also misled by similar limelight seeking critters at Bethel whose attitudes now infect the whole congregational “Inquisitional” atmosphere from the elder body on down the pyramid.
Favoritism is based on visuals and quantifiable numbers that program the sheep with things common to secular businesses and corporations as material and performance focus, rather than actual spirituality. And the lack of the spirituality and obviously elitist leaders fueling the delusion is the reason why the JW “love of the greater number cooling off” has turned into a congregational iceberg as the actual materiality and auto-corruption belies the spiritual claims in a fashion explicitly defining what hypocrisy is.
JWs today are like Israel of 780 BCE, or Jerusalem of 650 BCE or in Christ’s time, the exact same snapshot of hypocritical blinded self-righteousness, promoted by the leaders, is now present in explicit form in the JW circus act and it’s Bethel ringleader. And JWs are just as blind as classic Israel, if not more so even ignoring Israel’s main example. It is all simply repeating exactly, but in new form, indicating a divine judgment is required (1Pet4:17; Dan8:13-14), not a deliverance to “Princely” positions of power to also corrupt the 1000 year reign, as that carrot leads many elders expectations for power now and later as one of the driving delusions that guides Jehovah’s witnesses in organized fashion today.
It is plain as day to everyone but JWs. Repeating truth is stranger (Isa28:21) than JW repeated fiction. Everything else seems to also require a final repeat as well, including divine judgment first (1Pet4:17), upon the very JW organization supposedly the experts of these kinds of repeating prophetic patterns. Go figure…
There can and will be a recovery. But surprisingly a divine judgment of worldwide JW org desolation, which is the precursor, is the farthest thing from most JW minds. Yet it is part of the theme of the JW ministry when applied to Israel and Christendom, but not when applied to lawless Bethel.
And all the former patterns JWs know inside and out about Israel’s and Christendom’s principles of “evil slave”, “man of lawlessness”, “weeds”, “foolish virgins”, “reap what you sow” and so on, never make the projection onto the Bethel criminal system of today, by focusing on past positives that are now long gone in JW history.
The 1976 obviously failed “Governing Body” experiment is what must be scrapped, admitted and uninstalled with all the policy that empowered the main Bethel compromise from that core cell of lawlessness, as the GB, now accepted more by tradition and gradual development since 1976 than any actual JW organizational or Biblical precedent … is the MAIN cell of leaven and corruption.
Until JWs plainly recognize and admit the Governing Body is NOT in the Bible, but of secular origins as the manmade self-invented vehicle of the Bethel coup of 1976, of course NOTHING is going to change but get far worse, far quicker than the original development, because now it is exponential and systemically terminal in the JW org, from top to bottom. There is no actual divine blessing present on criminal Bethel. (Mal2; Rev8:10-11 in modern form).
Plainly the GB illusion is NOT TRUTH, plain and simple. Not Biblical, not authorized by God, not anointed, not infallable and not found in the Bible as if John, Paul, Peter, James and others all submitted their “articles” and books to the Jerusalem “GB” for approval, comments, and editing. NEVER is a “governing body” mentioned even once in the Bible, the whole thing is a lie, and formed the original nucleus of JW and Bethel lawlessness of today, that ALL originates from that “body” in the Governing Body as the source of ALL JW sin and hypocrisy.
In it’s dictatorial power grasp, no other source of JW guidance can be found but the distracting and brazen spiritual criminals and actors in the Governing Body as more a “body” competitive to the one and only Biblical “body of the Christ” (2Thess2:4) as the GB “body” is far more likely that of the “evil slave” and “man of lawlessness”, by their own fruitage being now globally recognized.
And until that first cancerous cell and spiritual tumor is removed FOREVER, JWs will continue in that falsehood that is of serious nature, not a petty oversight, but an installed spiritual subversion control center, plain and simple. The GB itslf cannot be “reformed” because they are not scriptural and need to be abandoned and demoted back to a secular “board of directors”, which even that they are not in today’s WTS, but are a specialized fronting group to lead the subversion, and only in their removal and world apology can JWs ever actually recover.
The cancer is now full blown, the whole JW org has to go down and arise from ashes by God, not human power. (Zech3:2; Zech3:1-7).
In the meantime it will be Bethel lawless business as usual until that divine crash comes; (2Thess2:1-8; Dan8:13-14; 1Pet4:17). And come it will. Justice must be served, and God don’t mess around when it comes to BIG JUSTICE. God will remove and fully expose and account the Governing Body and Bethel “weed” system factions to recover what can be salvaged later. (Mal3:1-5).
JWs know the concept, they just don’t apply it to the Bethel of today, where it actually applies. (Hosea, the whole book. Micah, the whole book).
Let’s suppose for a second, that JWs actually had “the truth”. Well, no one would have an xJW website, no one would leave an actual truth they found or were shown by God, it would be the truth!
Yes you could live forever in a warless perfect planet, you could have perfect health forever, you would be actually happy, you would meet relatives back to Noah and Abel, you could even resurrect your family pets, you could restore your favorite dog or cat or whatever:
(Romans 8:31-32) 31 What, then, shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who will be against us? 32 He who did not even spare his own Son but delivered him up for us all, why will he not also with him kindly give us all other things?
(Ezekiel 47:9) And it must occur that every living soul that swarms, in every place to which the double-size torrent comes, will get life. And it must occur that there will be very many fish, because there is where this water will certainly come, and the [seawater] will be healed, and everything will be alive where the torrent comes.
(Isaiah 34:15-16) There the arrow snake has made its nest and lays [eggs], and it must hatch [them] and gather [them] together under its shadow. Yes, there the gledes must collect themselves together, each one with her mate. 16 Search for yourselves in the book of Jehovah and read out loud: not one has been missing of them; they actually do not fail to have each one her mate, for it is the mouth of Jehovah that has given the command, and it is his spirit that has collected them together.
Too good to be true! Is anything though “too good” to be truth? I know my dogs certainly were a greater support to me than ANY elder I have EVER known. The truth would be the reason why people even would entertain a total restoration of life on planet Earth through the living Christ, not dead Adam any longer; (Matt19:28; Rom8:22-28; Rev22:1-3; Rev21:1-5).
Who would leave that assured future if it was actually “the truth”?
Suppose it was actually true? No one with half a brain would simply not drink of the eternal fountain of youth FREE!
(Revelation 22:17) And the spirit and the bride keep on saying: “Come!” And let anyone hearing say: “Come!” And let anyone thirsting come; let anyone that wishes take life’s water free.
But alas, Bethel reality. Bethel lawlessness. Betel hypocrisy. Bethel pedophile network. Bethel UN NGO. Bethel inquisition and shunning banishment. Bethel’s modern “dictators of Sodom”, Bethels lack of remorse and repentance, Bethel’s infallible we are more “faithful and discreet” than any one on earth, Bethel’s waffling and lies, Bethels brazen complacency and look busy act, Bethel’s greed and intake of millions of JW dollars, Bethel’s visuals and traditions, materiality and spiritual coma, Bethel based outcry and injustice. Bethel Jerusalem Pharisees of today! (Rev8:10-12; Zech3:1-3; 2Thess2:1-4).
“The truth” is the Bethel “sheep skin”. They merely cover all the lies, with desirable truths! So the truth is there to draw in the now blinded sheep, but it is now buried under actual Betel lawlessness at global magnitudes and actually anti-Christian activities everyone sees but JWs.
But getting rid of that lawlessness completely for an actual recover of the base truths of God through Jesus Christ would take an “act of God” commensurate with a Jerusalem judgment, that still went into retrograde corruption in time after the recovery. But in the Bible, a judgment of God of “Biblical proportions” is a common theme of prophecies that are now world histories. To JWs divine judgment should also be “the truth”, we have many former historical examples of it. In 70 CE Jerusalem was indeed scrubbed from the face of the earth by the Romans who actually did not “leave a stone upon a stone” in Jerusalem, but a couple trophies and garrison structures.
But today’s JWs are like the Jews laughing and being offended by Jesus statement that Jerusalem would be razed to the ground. And it was. It is world history.
So it is not impossible for God to do the same thing to the JW worldwide Bethel system, and make an accounting to all the abused and beaten sheep, and even the world in general actually having a JW insult and crime committed against them as well with current Bethel lies and fraudulent ploys. It is not beyond Bethel’s power to be also erased from the earth for crimes against God as well. And such a judgment would naturally be a world signal that God does not allow anyone to reproach His good name. Just stick in “Bethel” anywhere “Jerusalem” term is used in the Bible, it is far from impossible for God to decimate Bethel just as easily as Jerusalem, TWICE!
And any recovery would have to be leading in some sort order to the actual Kingdom of God, because Adamic human retrograde corruption would in time repeat the same inclination to lawlessness, so it would logically be a final world signal of a truth of prophecy already programmed into a final, but precursor JW judgment to begin the whole final cycle. (1Pet4:17 would be the beginning of Rev8, as Rev8-11 over some years). And since gnat straining JWs and UN NGO Camel gulping Bethel were not the answer, anyone who wanted to explore the possibility of prophecy again becoming world history could have free access to a communal hub of others humbled into undeserved kindness, with no organizational “mediator” which ended up “lifting itself over everyone” as the main cause of the JW downfall already programmed into prophecies they apply to Jerusalem and Christendom, but are blind to apply to modern Bethel, the main enemy of God in modern times, using Bible truth to cover over their actual lawlessness.
Once those criminals in the Betel factional dictatorship are removed and fully exposed as the long awaited “evil slave”, then in fact many people may very well return to an actual truth being clarified by fires (Zech3:1-7; Mal3:1-5) of justice and removal of the lie of Bethel and GB cell of lawlessness, that was hiding under truths that are actually true, and were the main Biblical reasons even deluded JWs keep coming back for more. But of course fear of man is also a persuasive element in many JWs even being at the Kingdom Hall for fear of banishment and curses, that if not present, JWs would probably be left with 2 million adherents who simply enjoy the JW lawless “operation of error” atmosphere of today; (2Thess2:11). Meaning in the heart, JWs numbers are far less than those counted at bean counter Bethel.
Thus as JWs preach of 1914-1918 as a deliverance out of “Babylon”, ironically JWs of the future will preach a deliverance from Bethel, because Bethel is today’s modern Babylon of coercion, confusion, dictatorship and darkness sold off with some “old light” and parrot talk of the past of the post 1914 era to currently light up the Bethel play and all the Bethel props currently fooling JWs to believe that Bethel center of even UN NGO harlotry, is actually “the truth”.
So this “grand illusion” is not going to simply deconstruct itself, it must have a divine push.
In effect this removal of the lies imbedded now fully in the elements of Bible truth, would require a JW organizational desolation and recovery of “prophetic proportions” and God and Christ’s direct involvement to actually recover “the truth” from the sea of Bethel wormwood of current lies (Rev8:10-11). Impossible for JWs and men, even unbelievable but clearly not impossible, or even unique in Bible history for God. In fact the doubt of such a judgment is also part of the former patterns leading to other judgments of the past! In fact the principle and concept is well known to JWs when applying the judgment to everyone else, forgetting where it MUST begin applied to JWs this time:
(1 Peter 4:17) For it is the appointed time for the judgment to start with the house of God.
JWs no longer play the game by Bible rules, but those divine patterns and mandates are what will override Bethel’s core revolt against God and Christ. (Matt24:15). Bethel is the core breaker of the rules of the game. When rules are actually enforced by respect to each individual’s conscience and own free will desire, many people would naturally “return to the truth” that was actually true.
Bethel and the GB are thus the core problem and falsehood actually stumbling people from what is even left of “the truth”. They are the target of God who already foretold the purification must precede the actual “Kingdom come” a number of years prior to the actual “end”. Everything is equaling Bethel is the divine powder keg, and God has the matches, and lawless time is the fuse burning down to Bethel’s judgment, and all the world will see it just as in any divine judgment long before the actual “end of te system of things” because a recovery takes time, as will actual human world government actually culminating in the required full globalization, without which no “8th King” is actually an 8th King.
It appears Bethel lawlessness is instead actually the foretold precursor signal (2Thess2:1-4), in modern final form.
