“Who really is the faithful and discreet slave whom his master appointed over his domestics, to give them their food at the proper time? Happy is that slave if his master on coming finds him doing so!” — Matthew 24:45-46
The Watchtower Bible Society has accomplished a great work, producing Bibles in over 100 languages and Bible-based literature in over 1,000 languages. Not only that, but it has trained and spiritually strengthened millions of Christians to use the tools provided. Jehovah’s Witnesses have done an extraordinary thing, leaving the comforts of home and seeking out persons who have a listening ear, who are teachable in order to minister to them and make disciples, as Jesus commanded. Some of Jehovah’s Witnesses have even left their own country and gone to faraway lands, learning new languages and customs and dealing with all sorts of discomforts in order to preach the good news.
Yes, there have been stumbling blocks. Jesus foretold that there would be. Jesus acknowledges the existence of corrupting influences within the symbolic congregations he oversees. For example, in Revelation Jesus said he has a few issues with those who adhere to the teachings of Balaam and Jezebel. He also voiced his hatred for the deeds of the sect of Nicholaus. Still, Jesus permits these leavening influences to continue up until the Lord’s day.
Even taking into account the Watchtower is also the source of the deluding influence that emanates from a man of lawlessness, it is undeniable that there is a slave who has provided food at the proper time—spiritual nourishment that has sustained the faith of millions.
As regards the deluding influence, over the years I have written a fair amount on the topic and so will not belabor the point here; save to say that from the beginning the Watchtower has proclaimed that the parousia has begun and the day of Jehovah is here, which is the operation of Satan backed by powerful deceptive signs and portents.
The core teaching of the organization is that the Kingdom is here, that Christ has been ruling since 1914. As the years have turned into decades and the decades have amounted to more than a century, it is to be expected that some of those slaves assigned by the master to provide food for the domestics might feel that their master is delaying. Jesus indicated as much when he said: “But if ever that evil slave says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying,’ and he starts to beat his fellow slaves and to eat and drink with the confirmed drunkards, the master of that slave will come on a day that he does not expect and in an hour that he does not know, and he will punish him with the greatest severity and will assign him his place with the hypocrites. There is where his weeping and the gnashing of his teeth will be.”
The slave does not necessarily give voice to his doubts regarding the whereabouts of the absentee master. As Jesus noted in his illustration the evil slave says in his heart “my master is delaying.”
Nevertheless, his inner heart betrays him. As a result of his lack of watchfulness the evil slave loses his spirituality and takes up associating with the confirmed drunkards and begins to beat his fellow slaves. The confirmed drunkards are the men of the world—the rulers and religious leaders.
When the Covid pandemic was unleashed on the world the Empire put into operation a form of psychological warfare designed to instill fear in order to induce the population to take the mRNA injections. The Watchtower immediately ordered every Kingdom Hall to be shuttered and shut down the public ministry. Even as most churches and businesses are now open Jehovah’s Witnesses remain in lockdown.
For more than a year the Governing Body assured Jehovah’s Witnesses that taking the controversial vaccine was a personal decision. They still insist that it is; evidently, though, contrary to their public statements the Watchtower began strong-arming Bethelites and full-time servants to get vaccinated. In response to remarks made by the mayor of New York City, the Watchtower’s public relations department issued the following statement:
We view vaccination as a personal decision for each Christian to make. Thus far 4,902 (99 percent) of the 4,926 at the offices of Jehovah’s Witnesses in New York State are fully vaccinated.
If it is a personal decision why is the Watchtower keeping a ledger of who is and who isn’t vaccinated? Why is that any of their business? Furthermore, if vaccines truly protect one from the virus why should it matter if someone is not vaccinated?
And if it is strictly a personal decision why is the percentage of vaccinated Bethelites far higher than the percentage of the general public, which appears to be slightly more than 50%? Are Bethelites just smarter or are they being coerced?
The folly of the Watchtower’s vaccination mandate is that those now deemed to be “fully vaccinated” will apparently not remain in that state. That is because in order to retain one’s fully vaccinated status regular booster shots are being recommended. So, the Watchtower has committed the entire Bethel family to a lifetime of bi-annual injections to immunize them from a virus that has a 99% survival rate and can be effectively treated without regular injections of mRNA.
Still, even if the shots only provide limited and temporary immunity it is understandable why Bethelites might submit to vaccinations since they are living in a dormitory setting and in close contact with many others on a daily basis. That is not the case, however, with millions of Jehovah’s Witnesses who have been strictly forbidden from any face-to-face contact in congregations or in field service. Given the total lockdown and isolation imposed by the Watchtower, why should any young and healthy JW be concerned about Covid?
To my knowledge, the Watchtower has never advised or mandated that the worldwide brotherhood take the shots. In fact, other than the video updates, the Watchtower has not published one word about vaccinations pro or con. That is why it was bewildering—inexplicable—that in the #7 Update a member of the Governing Body began berating JW’s for having strong opinions about the injections. Losch even accused his fellow slaves of being selfish lovers of themselves, headstrong and open to no agreement. As shocking as that was now elders worldwide are being threatened with judicial action, possibly even disfellowshipping for causing divisions. But how can having strong opinions about personal medical issues cause divisions among fellow Christians?
Given that the United Nations’ World Health Organization is funded by the Bill Gates foundation and backed by the billionaire club committed to population reduction, which is directing the pandemic response and promoting universal vaccinations, the Watchtower is by no means neutral but has become a vocal advocate of the globalists’ program. The Watchtower has even boasted about supplying the vaccines to third-world branches that could not obtain local supplies.
Their endorsement of a less-than-effective and potentially dangerous medicine promoted by an agency the Watchtower has labeled as Satan’s wild beast, and which is being enforced nationally by the worst tyranny since the Nazis terrorized Europe, it is becoming apparent that the evil slave is eating and drinking with the confirmed drunkards.
As if in a drunken rage himself, the slave is now threatening elders with the most severe punishment that can be meted out for merely having strong personal opinions about a medical treatment that hundreds of millions of people refuse to take. By the Governing Body’s shocking attack on the elders, it is now on full display that the evil slave has begun beating his fellow slaves.
