New Jerusalem Sets A Lofty Standard For God's Name People!

NEW JERUSALEM SETS A LOFTY STANDARD FOR GOD'S NAME PEOPLE!

(Article taken from LivingWatersForum.com )

WELCOME to all new YORWW Academy Student-Cadets to the “Living Waters Forum” discussion board for our Special “90-Day Bible Study Course” sponsored by the YORWW Congregation.

This Special “90-Day Bible Course” is to help all interested ones learn of the high requirements for entrance into “NEW JERUSALEM” on earth. Yes, even though we are at the beginning stages of this magnificent situation, we are saying the YORWW Congregation is in fact today, the establishment of the long foretold City of "New Jerusalem" and God's Kingdom Government on earth today! -- Matthew 6:10

In short, the YORWW Bible Institute & Religious Studies Group, better known as the YORWW Congregation, is actually a PRIESTHOOD designed and structured specifically to overcome the previously inflicted damage done by the evil, vile, insidious and nefarious Watchtower Society & Governing Body, in their unholy efforts to implement their so-called "priestly training" upon helpless, witless, and unsuspecting victims found at their local kingdom halls, conventions and assembly halls of Jehovah's Witnesses world wide. To overcome such previously ingrained training of many, many years, decades even, a very serious VETTING PROCESS must be implemented . . . as foretold in Bible Prophecy. -- See Luke 13:24-30; Ezekiel chapters 40-48; Zechariah 3:1-7; Malachi 3:1-6.

(For more information on God's earthly kingdom government see article entitled: “NEW JERUSALEM” FIRST DISCIPLINED, THEN PRAISED!)

Of course, this automatically means the requirements and qualifications for entry into this earthly kingdom government then are understandably very high. And because these lofty requirements are so high, just as high as the city of “New Jerusalem” and its dimensions are described in Revelation chapter 21, regrettably we realize that many Jehovah's witnesses simply will NOT qualify to enter. No, they will not.

Let's take note of how this situation is described for us in prophecy:

(Revelation 21:15-21) 15 Now the one who was speaking with me was holding as a measure a golden reed, that he might measure the city and its gates and its wall. 16 And the city lies foursquare, and its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs; its length and breadth and height are equal. 17 Also, he measured its wall, one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to a man's measure, at the same time an angel's. 18 Now the structure of its wall was jasper, and the city was pure gold like clear glass. 19 The foundations of the city's wall were adorned with every sort of precious stone: the first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chal·ced´o·ny, the fourth emerald, 20 the fifth sar´do·nyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrys´o·lite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrys´o·prase, the eleventh hyacinth, the twelfth amethyst. 21 Also, the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each one of the gates was made of one pearl. And the broad way of the city was pure gold, as transparent glass.

Please take note of the following comments about “New Jerusalem” below taken from the Revelation Climax Book published by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, chapter 43 entitled “The Resplendent City,” pages 306-307. It states:

"...What a remarkable city this is! A perfect cube 12,000 furlongs (about 1,380 miles) [2,220 km]) in perimeter, surrounded by a wall 144 cubits, or 210 feet [64 m], in height. No literal city could ever have such measurements. It would cover a territory about 14 times as large as modern Israel, and it would tower almost 350 miles [560 km] into outer space!"

As mentioned above, the height of enormous "New Jerusalem" stands some 350 miles high, wow! But, what does this mean for us today? Actually this shows us the requirements for entry into Jehovah God’s Kingdom on earth today, is quite high or lofty. God’s original purpose of a nation of “King and Priests” will be fulfilled in the establishment of “NEW JERUSALEM” [YORWW Congregation] on earth today, and achieved by using an INCREDIBLY LOFTY STANDARD and making that a requirement for admission into it. (Exodus 19:5, 6; Revelation 5:9, 10) This would make it virtually impossible for an "unclean" person or disobedient, unruly individual to gain entry thru the holy "gates" of New Jerusalem upon earth today. (See Isaiah 35:8; Rev. 22:14, 15) No doubt, this clearly explains why the scriptures have said over and over “many" will try to "get in" but only a few, just a "few" from among God's Name People will be able to do so. -- See Matt. 7:13, 14; Luke 13:23, 24.

We recall, Jesus was very plain in discussing this with his disciples. Jesus knew that many in the last days, would not be willing to put forth the strenuous effort and yes, put forth "earnest effort" to meet the “lofty” requirements for entry into New Jerusalem of our time. -- 2 Peter 1:5

Let's examine the biblical account for ourselves.

(Luke 13:23-24 New World Translation) 23 Now a certain man said to him: “Lord, are those who are being saved few?” He said to them: 24 “Exert [ lit. agonizomai] yourselves vigorously to get in through the narrow door, because MANY, I TELL YOU, WILL SEEK TO GET IN BUT WILL NOT BE ABLE,

Yes, Jesus said: Exert yourself...literally "agonize" [Greek: agonizomai] to get in the narrow door leading to God's Kingdom. Put forth much effort, strenous effort, in other words. Thus, great effort would be needed for one to QUALIFY to enter the YORWW Kingdom Arrangement today...yes, one would need to "agonize" to enter.

Actually, in time you may notice your past conduct, learning skills developed, and Godly qualities acquired at your local kingdom hall over the years in fact, will have an effect upon your rate of progress with us at the YORWW Academy. Remember, as Jesus said: "Pay attention to how you listen." This is good advice! -- Luke 8:18

No doubt, you will find the bible instruction here at LWF to be very different from what you received in your local kingdom hall. Actually you will find the standards and requirements here, are much higher in fact. And because of the high requirements set here at the YORWW Congregation, many Jehovah's witnesses regrettably will simply NOT qualify for such a high calling. No, but we realize Jehovah God has deliberately set VERY HIGH standards for the establishment of "New Jerusalem" upon earth today, to keep all undesirables or individuals of NON-faith out of His Holy City. -- See Revelation 21:8; Revelation 22:14, 15.

Indeed we remember, Jesus did say, “exert [Greek: agonizomai] yourselves vigorously,” did he not? With this thought in mind, to enter New Jerusalem, one would have to "exert" oneself or "agonize" to enter God's Kingdom on earth, the YORWW Congregation itself. Of course, we realize that any who are not willing to "agonize" to enter God's Kingdom, as Jesus recommended, will simply not make it. That is an irrefutable fact. -- Luke 13:24

GUIDELINES FOR WRITING YOUR LETTER OF DISASSOCIATION FROM JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES

Perhaps some, after visiting with us for a while and learning about the true identity of Babylon The Great, may wish to write their DA [disassociation letter] letter right away, before completing the entire YORWW Bible Study Course. Of course, if you decide to do so that will have to be considered YOUR PERSONAL DECISION.

However, we wanted you to know, that we would not recommend such a course, since you are so new to this material. Actually, we feel it would be much better for you to have progressed enough in your personal study of the written material here at YORWW Bible Academy, that you can conscientiously and fully accept the information as coming straight from Jehovah God Himself. To assist you toward that goal, we have developed the Special 90-Day Bible Study Course on LivingWatersForum. This special bible study course consists of some 70 especially prepared articles for your consideration.

In fact, some of the articles you have already read on CrossingEuphrates.com, like the ones on identifying Mystery "Babylon The Great," the "Man of Lawlessness" and others, are indeed a part of that special 70 article series prepared for you at LWF Discussion Board. (So you already have a head-start on reading these particular articles.) At LWF, these 70 especially prepared articles are "color-coded" by level of importance. So when you begin your studies on LWF, we recommend you carefully study these 70 color-coded articles presented there, taking the time to look up all scriptural citations with much prayer and meditation, before moving ahead with the writing of your final DA Letter from the Jehovah's Witnesses Organization and Watchtower Society. This way you will have the "full picture" before you make your final decision about YOUR FUTURE, and whether it will include Jehovah's Witnesses and the Watchtower Society or not.

To be sure, all during this Special 90-Day Bible Study Course, as well as in your private reading of the publication we call The "Report" Volume I, you will be made aware of many, many teachings and practices of the congregation of Jehovah's witnesses, and many covert actions on the part of leadership, which will no doubt cause you to become quite disturbed even shocked, as one who sincerely wishes to serve Jehovah in "spirit and truth." (John 4:24) It is to be expected, after learning of these distressing things, you may indeed decide to write a personal letter of Disassociation from the organization of Jehovah's witnesses. That is quite understandable. It is in this spirit, that we wish to provide some helpful guidelines for you in writing an effective and meaningful letter to the wayward organization of Jehovah's witnesses.

First off, in writing your personal DA letter, you could mention many things that you have personally found appalling in your private investigation of these matters, such as (a) the shameless spreading on a world wide basis of the "artfully contrived" false teaching of 1914, (b) the abhorrent child abuse policies that allow wicked predators to flourish within the congregations with impunity, thus NOT "looking after orphans and widows" as God commanded, nor practicing "pure worship" before others (c) the totally unnecessary, brazen change in the dedication questions made in 1985 which in effect places their "doorpost" and "threshold" besides Jehovah's in His Temple, (d) the disgraceful materialistic pursuits of opulence shown by Watchtower Society leadership (Patterson Education Center, Stanley Theatre and secret investments on Wallstreet such as $100 million with JP Morgan in mutual funds), (e) the obvious lack of "christian" love prevalent among membership as commonplace, and many more points like these that you would like to mention. -- 2 Peter 1:16; James 1:27; Ezekiel 43:8; 2 Timothy 2:4; Matthew 24:12

See example of DA Letter here: DISASSOCIATION LETTER FROM JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES

However, please remember that no matter what particular points you wish to include in your personal letter of disassociation, that it should definitely mention the following 4 key points:

  • The Watchtower Society's secret involvement with the United Nations Organization as a NGO Supporter between the years of 1991 thru 2001 was an act of apostasy against the christian covenant established with God's Name People in the year of 1931.
  • You clearly recognize the above actions as blatant betrayal and denial of Christ and the christian covenant itself, on the part of the Governing Body of Jehovah's witnesses, thus revealing them to be the fulfillment of the "Man of Lawlessness" as a body. -- 2 Thessalonians 2:3, 4.
  • You clearly recognize the Watchtower Society entity itself as being the fulfillment of Babylon the Great of Bible Prophecy, and that you personally must thus heed God's clear admonition to "come out" of wicked Babylon The Great, in fulfillment of Revelation 18:4.
  • You firmly believe because of all such unrepentant wicked acts on the part of the Governing Body and Watchtower Society over so many years, that Jehovah God has indeed ABANDONED the organization that bears His Name permanently, and instead purposes to establish a new congregational arrangement of spiritual refuge for all deserved ones who wish to do His Will apart from unrighteousness, before God's "Great Wrath" comes upon this wicked, apostate nation. -- Deuteronomy 23:14; Isaiah 10:6; Isaiah 30:26; Jeremiah 23:19, 20; Matthew 21:43; Luke 21:23, 24


THREE IMPORTANT QUALITIES NEEDED TO PROGRESS IN THE YORWW BIBLE ACADEMY

It has been observed, for one to gain entry into Earthly “New Jerusalem,” one would have to exhibit three (3) primary qualities...some say the “three H’s” as we at LWF call these special qualities:

  • 1) Humility - "lowliness of mind," and "mildness" which makes it easier to learn or be a disciple; God's Word points out one who is opposed to learning would be considered wicked. -- Matthew 18:3; Eph. 4:2; James 1:21; Isaiah 26:10
  • 2) Honest-Hearted – shows no "deceit" or "deceitfulness," honest with self, and others; accepts the truth when heard. -- John 1:47; John 4:16, 17; 1 Peter 2:1; John 8:32; Eph. 1:13; 1 Thess. 2:13
  • 3) Hungering [or thirsting] for Truth and Righteousness – has strong desire to search for Divine Truth and gives much effort in doing so; views this as very important. -- Matt. 5:6; Matt. 6:33; Matt. 7:7, 8


To be sure, you will need a generous supply of these qualities to make all of the necessary adjustments for genuine progress in your studies and activities at YORWW Bible Academy. These three (3) qualities will yes, facilitate much growth while you are with us, during your 90-day stay at LWF.

Remember, the requirements for entry into New Jerusalem, will prove to be very, very high. In fact, God's prophetic word likens the re-shaping of God's Name People, during these difficult days of "restoration" as being like going thru a serious cleansing, as with "lye" soap. Therefore, much effort will be needed, on a personal basis, for one to qualify finally, to be admitted into God's Earthly Kingdom, as New Jerusalem. -- Malachi 3:2-4
