//Episode #72

If Jesus is not my mediator, how are my sins forgiven? –  

Why is Watchtower toning down Numbers 31:18?  Or is their version the only one that is correct?

Is it possible that man could someday day manipulate human DNA in such a way as to achieve everlasting life?

Are not the “other sheep” Gentile believers, or is there a dual meaning?

Call-in questions on subjects ranging from the two witnesses and the 7,000 who are killed, to how to go about preaching given the error inherent in the WT’s message.  And more!

    • Burt Reynolds

      You’re right there D34D. He did…..couldn’t figure out what he was saying until I read your translation! You’re WWWEEEEELLLLLLLCCCCCCC OOOOOOMMMMEEEE

    • Beverly kenyon

      Hiya, DA, not stalking you or anything, lol, but couldn’t help but notice you’re MIA. Hope you’re ok. Miss your input here on EWatchman.

  • Ohhhhh yeah, and 55 minutes to boot !! Thanks Robert

    • Joseph will be out till the 27th, for a little R&R? @ Sea Oats Ct. Corolla,,NC 27927

      • Beverly kenyon

        Wow! Joseph, so jealous. That looks fab! I can just see you and your family running along that beach! Lol. Don’t you you just love this planet that Jehovah made for us! Cya when you get back.

      • patri

        Looks like paradise to me Joseph.
        But ask the animals, and they will
        teach you; or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of Jehovah has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind. (Job)
        Beverley and I are on our way!

  • My heart goes out to carol… I’ve donated what I can and have out her story up on my website… I’ve had email correspondence with her and she’s really an amazing woman.

    As for the1335 days, all i have to say is, lol… Robert back when first posted to your website (through disqus anyway…prior to that i posted as anon) you emailed me And i replied and asked if you would read our latest paper on prophecy so i could get your thoughts… You said you would, and to give you few days… Obviously you haven’t kept your word because if you had, you would have noticed that the three time periods, 1335 days, 1290 days, and 1260 days have already been worked out…so much for letting your yes mean yes…

    • ewatchman

      I read parts of what you had written and didn’t find much worth commenting on. I didn’t see any point in being critical.

      • My whole point for asking you to read it was to get your analysis on it…your honest analysis…that doesn’t mean I would have agreed with everything you said, I was just interested in your opinion, critical or otherwise…I’m not the kind of person to take constructive criticism personally.

        • patri

          And now for something completely different Tara…
          Robert so kindly mentioned me at the very end of his podcast today. I did not expect it but by him so lovingly doing so, he’s emboldened me to ask my new family here for their prayers as I face such a critical time in my life. Seems I just couldn’t wait for the GT to kick off…
          Thanks Robert so much for my premature paradise here, I absolutely love the contact with everyone.

          • Carol, I’m glad to see that all the support you’ve gotten through Robert’s website has been a help to you. You absolutely will be in my prayers…and worry not, the end of this wicked system is at hand after which all God’s people will be redeemed and the real healing process can begin.

            • patri

              My name is Patricia but no worries. I really do appreciate your kind words of comfort, thank you Tara.
              Yes, an ocean load of tears will soon be wiped away, my buckets full included…

            • My apologies.

          • I’ll keep you in my prayers Patricia, BIG brotherly HUG !!

            • patri

              I’m not surprised to hear from you Joseph. Thanks sweetie. Now I’m feeling bad about taking up Robert’s space here.

            • Your worthy of the space here!??
              Get well soon!!

            • Song of Hannah

              Aw you are such a sweetie Patricia! My prayers are with you also! (((hugs)))

            • Sam

              Prayers going out to you Patricia. Hang in there… I love reading your comments on here, they are always filled with fire and humor. Stay strong 🙂

          • Burt Reynolds

            Hello Patri, I’m so sorry to hear you are ill. Which hospital are you going into? If it’s the QEQM I can come to visit you, possibly even if it’s Canterbury, and ensure that you get help on discharge…even bring you a few grapes! How is your husband coping? Does he need support from social services? Have you got family visiting? I used to manage a team in social services and my wife still works in social services so if you need help, we can make sure you are referred. Best wishes.

            • patri

              Burt! Hello. I’m too far for you to visit but may take you up on your s.s connection. Thanks very much. Will keep that in mind.
              I’m still up n running, holding the fort and when I start a-trembling, after doing too much I head for my bed.
              Was only told on 14th so my hospital stay will be to remove the cauliflower n test if it’s malignant/invasive. Having a scan tomo to see if its spread to lymphs.
              Husband burst into tears, started shaking and headed for his bed. He said it wasn’t a good time for him I replied, I know the feeling. Hahaha Made me laugh.
              I have an atheist friend whose more loving than most I know, friends for 64 years, we met at school. She’ll be there for us both. Much love my friend…:)

            • Burt Reynolds

              Hello Patri, when you get to the hospital ask to be referred to social services and that they see you before discharge. That way you can talk with them and see if they can help you. It will depend on your physical state. You can also speak with them about any benefits you may need, such as mobility or other areas. If there is any malignancy and I pray there will not be, ask for support from the McMillan nurses. They help in the community. Social services may be able to support your husband while you are in hospital. He must be feeling very worried for you poor chap and I know it will be awful for you too. You can ring social services and ask for emergency support for him if he does need help, while you are away….someone to come and check on him, or ensure he is eating…..I don’t know your circumstances….he might go out for a ten mile run every morning…..but just so as you know if he does need a bit of support. There are also voluntary agencies that will come In and sit with him…..maybe a waiting list but ask social services anyway. Ring before you go in, just to be sure and so you know what’s on offer. Get back to me if you have worries. Here to help. I pray Jehovah will strengthen you and your hubby. Love from me.

            • Beverly kenyon

              Patri, stunned and so very sorry to hear about your health situation. Can’t believe what I was reading! I just know that funny, strong, fiery, young outlook, upbeat nature of yours will keep you going. They can do amazing things these days and I pray and hope your that its good news regarding your scan. But whatever happens I just know you will face it head on. You sound like you have good people to support you and I hope someone can help out with your son because you might be worried about him. Felt so sorry about how your husband felt. So sad. Take all the help you can get. How lovely of Burt to offer practical help. That man has a good heart and is a proper gent. Please keep everyone here on Brother King’s site updated because you’ll be in our thoughts. Stay Positive.

            • patri

              Beverley, many thanks for your encouraging words, much appreciated.
              I think Robert must have known how much I’d be relying on my friends here by mentioning my plight end of podcast…He’s now giving me a lot of slack for which I’m truly thankful.
              I’ve copied Burt’s invaluable advise down by hand which I’ll put into my hospital go-bag and put into practice as soon as needed. My husband can’t really cope on his own, doesn’t drive for e.g, bit stuck so there comes that time when one has to surrender, let go, give in to what is, and face reality.
              The words “you have a large cancerous tumour”…are not exactly music to ones ears but on hearing them I looked round to see who the consultant was speaking to. Then Robert de Nero came into my head, ” are you talking to me? Are you talking to ME? Still don’t think its sunk in, but the pain is giving me a little nudge, now.
              One day at the time for now, until the day when we won’t ever say those words again.
              May I thank Hannah n Sam so as to save space…messages gratefully received. Much love to everyone.

          • Burt Reynolds

            How are you today Patri? Are you bearing up? Is there anything I can help you or your hubby with? In those dark moments, remember that Jehovah is aware of you, as he is of each sparrow that falls to earth. You have not fallen and yet he is aware of you and will bring you comfort. He may bless you to stay as all who are here pray he will. Be of strong spirit and it will sustain you. May Jehovah bless you and keep you. May he make his face to shine upon you and be merciful to you. Love knows all things, bears all things. His love for you will never fail. Walk forward.

            • patri

              Burt, bless your heart. I’m feeling every word you say. All positive stuff.
              Without finding Robert, and all the loving ones here I’d be a crumbled heap. That’s for sure.
              Got an MRI 10am today, painless, buoyed by the knowledge of all those prayers spoken on my behalf. Remembered all your names with such overflowing love I virtually floated through the entrance doors.
              Have to wait 7-10 days before “procedure” to treat and test the growth , lovely job! So will keep you posted. Dont plan on taking 2 nighties in with me as I’ll probably get kicked out minutes afterwards, get the circulation going, protect from blood clots, we need your bed sort of thing.
              Couldn’t get a wi fi signal at the hospital so suffered withdrawal symptoms and needed my e -watchman fix, was surprised to see you waiting here for me when I tuned in. Million thank yous dear. Much love in return…

            • Beverly kenyon

              Hiya Patri, so happy you’re up and about. That’s made my day! Have you been putting on your best Robert Deniro voice on? Are you talking to me? Lol. Those 7-10 days will fly. You just want to get it done! Hope you and your hubby have a peaceful and relaxing weekend. Enjoy every moment. Burt is smashing it with his reasoning with Tara. It’s beautiful to read how he’s putting his point across. He’s a true wordsmith and you just know it’s all written from the heart. Stay positive.

            • patri

              Beverley, I’m still thinking the news was really for someone else!
              I actually declined the support of a Counsellor who followed me out and insisted I took her phone number. I did. Then dropped it in the bin. My Counsel comes not from this world, as sincere as these caring persons are but what is it I need to know that my Father can’t tell me about facing death, I’d already run that scene through my head before my diagnosis but in the context of the pending tribulations. Memo to self; embrace your dummy run…
              Well, I think I’ve lost track of the Tara saga and although my heart goes out to her I believe she is caught up in a wicked web. Satan knows his running out of time. He’s going all out to corrupt God’s creation at this time, its palpable. And f rom the start we know he’s wanted to undermine Gods created works, male and female because they are made in God’s image, such is his jealousy. So he exerts influence and suddenly transgender agenda is in your face so hard its acceptable and society is ok with it. Men marry men, men and women marry the sea and men dress as living dolls. Pedophilia will eventually be legalised as all traditional values are destroyed along with the family unit. Say anything to the contrary and we’re told to look the other way, there are many forms of love, if it makes them happy, if it feels right, its their right to be and do as thou wilt.
              This is normal in the end times folks!
              Male and female merging into ONE is occultism and its deeply rooted in satanism. The satanists always worshipped a goddess over male god – always. The occult world talks about a harmonic convergence, all as the spirit of mankind converges into one universal spirit, called a paradigm shift… A complete change from the way people think into a new way of thinking. And by doing so, they are receiving another spirit if you allow yourself to be comfortable with an androgynous being. That’s what’s going on – the merging of these two and by receiving that spirit you’re receiving the spirit of Satan.
              The anointed cherub has man worshipping himself, wanting to be gods. Hip hop stars claim they ARE gods. They boast theyve sold their soul to the devil. Woe to them. And woe to him who raises his throne above the stars of God.
              If this hasn’t made sense my excuse is I’ve had one interruption after another so i cant continue with my train of thought. I have to give up right now. Love from P 🙂

            • Beverly kenyon

              Hiya Tara, good to see you back on form despite what’s happening. What you’ve brilliantly written does make sense. In the world we live in now they’re saying, what’s good is bad and what’s bad is good. Violence and sex reign supreme and if you don’t approve and show your support for gays, transgender, transition and whatever else trans you’re viewed as a hater! It’s what they practice ( if that’s the case ) not the person. My brother is gay and live in Malaga, Spain, I love that boy but not what he practices and I will not go stay in his house. I can’t compromise myself but I do it so there’s no hurt feelings.
              Patri, I know you will face what’s happening to you head on. You’re not no victim! Just be super prepared, get educated about your illness, eat good food, lots of sleep, lots of laughter and lean on Jehovah through his word. I read somewhere once, that people who have a faith in God seem to cope better with illness. If for whatever reason you end up at Christie’s hospital here in Manchester, I’m not saying you will, but who knows, it’s famous for its cancer treatment, let me know and I will come visit you and bring supplies
              I do feel sorry for Tara. It can’t be easy for her. I wouldn’t know what it feels like to be in that position but I know if I had to sacrifice my feelings for Jehovah and try to do what he approves of then that’s what I would have to do if I value my everlasting life and it would be a chance to show my love for Jehovah God. Was it Moses who didn’t want to have the enjoyment of temporary sin? Days ago you said a good point about Tara maybe distancing herself from that grandmother. I don’t think that relationship is really helpful. Brother King also suggested to Tara, if she really want to truth seekers and lost sheep, then promote and point people forward to EWatchman site.
              Once again Patri, keep going and keep positive. We’re thinking of you and your family.

            • Beverly kenyon

              Aaaarrrgh! Sorry Patri, I’ve only just noticed I started my post calling you Tara. That girl has got right inside my head!!! Please forgive. That’s the last thing you need! Lol.

            • Burt Reynolds

              Hello Patri, it is likely that they will try to boot you out of hospital. Don’t be surprised if they do, though if you are not feeling well, make sure you tell them clearly. My wife works in mental health at our hospital and though you are not going there, the policy is to move people on as fast as possible and each day they have to report what they have done to move you on to discharge! Never fear, the sooner you are out, so long as you are well enough, the better. There are plenty of other things in hospital that you don’t want in the way of germs. BUT, stick up for yourself. If you cannot mobilise, or you are feeling ill, tell them and get answers. Get social services involved if you need help getting on at home and for after care, especially pain control if required. Care is good, nurses are kind, help is at hand, positive things will come out of it all. Why not get in touch with social services today or Monday and tell them what’s happening and ask how can they help. Take the bull by the horns and stay in control of your health. Ask them about care for your hubby. Going through that lot will occupy your time and you need that right now. Speak with your assigned nurse on admission and discuss the above. It’s your body, your rights to good informative care, you need to know what’s happening and how you will be cared for post operation. Do what you can beforehand to arrange care when you are out. When you get in, deal and discuss your care needs then with those who will care for you. Take a load of readers digest with you. You will get good care. Don’t worry. It’s just a treadmill in hospitals. Nothing to worry you. I have spent the last 19 years treading the corridors of QEQM and know the hospital situation. What hospital you are going to I don’t know but they are all pretty good and the standards of surgery are very very good. You will be fine. Your faith will sustain you and the prayers of the brothers and sisters on this site will carry you as wings through your ordeal and the hands of Jehovah himself will guide you. He knows all his sheep. All our love to you in your journey. Keep in touch. Xx

            • patri

              Burt! Don’t know where the day’s gone. I’m still coming across comments which have totally got pass me. Those and the many links needing to be read. Never a dull moment.
              As I was handed a bottle of antimicrobial lotion yesterday to be used for two days head/body before admittance, I googled to find my hospital is top of the list for MRSA and c.diff. I also have to get into a bedful of clean everything at home here afterwards! So, i plan to get outa Dodge and keep on going and never come back, as soon as its over.
              Hubz is not keen on outside help so I’ll bear with and wait till he’s starving and needs a clean shirt before I call in the cavalry. I’ve taken down your oh so helpful notes.
              Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I’d be as happy as I feel right now. Never would have believed I’d happen upon such a blessed website, de-code my head, learn more bible truth in a few years than in the whole of my life and meet such beauties whose hearts beat as one. Its such a wonderful feeling to have fallen in love with my Father and his son and commune as frequently as time allows. I want so much to get through this so I can really prove to be one of his sheep more than all the tea in China! I’m ok really ok. As you say post op will be the bigger challenge so I’ll follow your advise and prep as much as possible, and leave out the dog biscuits…love you much. P 🙂

    • worked out how in in what way?

    • Bklyn Kevin

      I have also went over what you have written concerning those three time periods in the book of Daniel and didn’t find anything of great significance that you have written.
      In other words you had no new insight to offer that I can discern.

      D34D 4L!3N ask you an excellent question, He said “Worked out how in in what way?.
      So please feel free to elaborate more as I would be interested.

      • patri

        You know I love you Bklyn Kevin, but what did Tara write that made you want to exchange notes with him?
        Something he’s said has changed your mind and I’m curious to know what it is…? Hope you don’t mind me asking.

        • …Her

        • Bklyn Kevin

          It’s not what she wrote it’s her zeal.
          Romans 10:
          Brothers, the goodwill of my heart and my supplication to God for them are indeed for their salvation.
          2 For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God,+ but not according to accurate knowledge.

          • Burt Reynolds

            That’s true. Well put. I don’t see his zeal as you do. His knowledge may not be accurate as I expect mine can be inaccurate. To me, his zeal seems contrary to what he says the bible tells us.

            • Bklyn Kevin

              I’d try to give everybody the benefit of a doubt and what I thought was zeal from Tara for Jehovah was actually deception.
              In other words Tara was using Jehovah as a front for whatever ill will motives he may have.
              And please keep in mind I was not familiar with Tara,s biography / story until you had brought it to our attention.

            • Burt Reynolds

              Hello Kevin, I didn’t think for one minute that there was any criticism. Even if there was, I probably earned it! I appreciated your scripture. Best wishes.

            • Bklyn Kevin

              What I said was not meant to criticize anybody, But just to explain my actions towards Tara due to his deception.

        • Bklyn Kevin

          As I was reading I just realize your are ill, I will pray to Jehovah for your safe recovery and that he may grant you peace and endurance
          Psalms 29:
          11 Jehovah will give strength to his people. Jehovah will bless his people with peace.

    • We know that the end Daniel 12 is speaking about the time of the end. This is confirmed by Daniel 12:9. Therefore, when Daniel 12:12 states “Happy is the one who keeps in expectation and who arrives at the 1335 days!” it’s talking about the time of the end. However, the time of the end is a time is a time of great distress for the earth, so the ones who are happy are the ones who come out of the time of the end and survive Armageddon. Therefore the 1335 days covers the entire time from when the kingdom is established in heaven to the end of Armageddon.

      Some ground work before explaining the 1290 days: a while back, Mr. King posted an article that talked about who the 1st century disgusting thing came in to the holy place twice. The first time was a warning, when God’s people caught sight of them, they were to flee to the mountains, and those that didn’t were eventually killed when the disgusting thing came back on Passover. This is a pattern for our time. The modern-day disgusting thing (the UN) will come to the man of lawlessness to make an alliance when religion is banned by the king of the north (who will eventually be resurrected and become the 8th king)…this banning of religion will mark the fall of BTG (the WT believes BTG has already fallen and so will interpret that as her destruction, but the destruction doesn’t come until all false religion is wiped out, including the final beast who will demand all people to worship it).

      This alliance between the UN and the man of lawlessness marks he initial “invasion” by the disgusting thing. After that time, there will be a short time until the dugusting thing sweeps away the man of lawlessness (Daniel 11:22)…this is the second invasion and also the time when the “constant feature” is removed…as King has said in the past…the man of lawlessness will have made himself irrelevant. This is the key to Daniel 12:11, which states that “from the time that the copnstant feature has been removed and the disgusting thing that causes desolation has been put in palce, there will be 1,290 day.” Incidentally, the constant feature being removed also represents the beginning of the GT…so from the beginning of the GT to the end of Armageddon, there will be 1,290 days.

      The next time period is 1,260 days, which Revelation 11:2, 3 equates to 42 months, which, as King points out, is equivalent to 3 1/2 years. This, as King has already pointed out is the time period for the appointed times of the nations, which begins when the kingdom is established, and ends 1335 – 1260 = 75 days prior to the end of Armageddon. This time period marks God’s allowance for human rulership to continue on after his kingdom has been established before the wheels are set into motion to destroy Satan’s system and throw him and the demons into the abyss.

      Notice that the holy ones (the two witnesses) prophecy for this time period of 1,260 days, which begins in earnest at the beginning of the GT, when the disgusting thing makes it’s second appearance (incidentally, this is also when the mark of the beast is handed out – the UN disgusting thing commands the JWs who are loyal to the society to worship it – this is the foundation of the notion that judgment begins with the house of God, the mark of the beast is thereafter opened up to the rest of the world). Notice that when the two witnesses finish their prophecying, the wild beast begins its attack of the holy ones who are destined to be martyred….therefore, the end of the appointed times of the nations marks the beginning of the attack on God’s people.

      • Bklyn Kevin

        I really appreciate you taking your time and sharing your thoughts concerning the book of Daniel and Revelations however there is much of what you said that I would surely disagree with then there’s some things that you say that I would agree with.
        But nonetheless your thoughts are very interesting and in my opinion warrants my further investigation.
        As you may not know I have studied these particular prophecies concerning the various time periods in debt and have a somewhat different conclusion in comparison to you and brother King as well as most others, perhaps we can exchange bible based notes in order to qualify or disqualify these concepts you have.
        If you like we can exchange our notes as well as discussed them through the e-mail
        or perhaps on your website . Just let me know.

        • I would absolutely be up for a discussion, either via the comments section on my blog posts, or via email (which I think would be better)…there’s a link to the site mail on the website you can click, and then I’ll respond to you personally from my email address.

        • Burt Reynolds

          Hello Kevin, please share your findings with me or all of us. I would like to know as well. Thanks.

      • correction to the final paragraph…the prophecying begins at the beginning of the time of tge end….the beginning of the gt is still the beginning of the mark of the beast…i knew there was something wrong with what i posted…

        • i think* thats what threw me off too; had me second guessing

    • Burt Reynolds

      Hello Tara, from my point of view, I have not studied these numbers of days. Neither do I know what they mean, apart from what I have been told by Robert today. Do I care what the days mean? I like to think I care about all the bible, but I know I have not a hope of remembering all these things, let alone acting on all of them. I have faith, not knowledge, not a lot in terms of figuring out the bible, that’s for sure. So it is my faith that sustains me in hope, and in love of the word of Jehovah. And until I found this site, I had to do without instruction as well. Do I put faith in Robert? No, but I trust in what he has to say. Even after years of being deceived by the watchtower, I still have room to trust a man I have not even met except though my tv screen. Why do I give trust? Because the way he talks about the bible has the breath of truth in it and that is a palpable touch to me, if not others. I also have no reason to disbelieve his motives. Though I do not put myself in the bracket of biblical prophesy, the talks remind me of the phrase, ‘they shall hear my voice and come out.’ Jehovah’s voice that is, not Robert’s. Yet someone has to teach. Someone has to make the word come alive as the bible says, for without teaching who will know? Someone has to bear the word of God if we are to hear. I do not feel there is a need to wrangle over the exactitude of the days. Neither you, or I or Robert can be certain and in any regard, we are left to accept or reject or consider freely. I don’t think Jehovah cares either. It is just there perhaps for those who may like to know, or who can work it out, or whom will be told by Him for a reason in due time. Though it is fair to question, I do not feel it fair to accuse him for not keeping to a tight schedule for to make a reply. He did answer your question in the pod cast. He says how he will reply in several ways in his site info. It is not good to say, ‘so much for your yes being yes’, and ‘laughing out loud’ at his contribution, when he spent time in trying to answer and research. Someone who spends every day preparing texts and info, searching the scriptures for free, not asking for a return, and for any one persons benefit, to help and inspire, neither claiming infallibility or denying the sharing of his learning, and living with his own doubts and struggles, ….and hayfever….; it is somewhat uncharitable to call his offer to help into a sneer on his honesty. Can we not just accept each other for who we are, just struggling to live in spite of our failings? Knowledge is not the answer, it is just the scale on which we balance our understanding and concept of life. Best wishes.

      • Burt…i recognize that Jehovah had used king to accomplish a purpose…i have absolutely no doubt of that and his work forms a foundation to my work, and my grandmothers’, but king became haughty, so Jehovah moved on…king could not accept that he is not the only one Jehovah is using to accomplish his will…king has not been given certain things, and his haughtiness is the reason for that…king himself had started that he hasn’t really been given any new incite for quite some time…and my reference to what he said about reading my work had nothing to do with the question he tried to answer on his podcast, that question came from someone else… The conversation with king that i alluded to happened months ago, and king said it would take him a few days, and her we are a few months later Andi still have not received an answer… Anyway, I’m not upset, or even surprised to be honest, really, my post was for the benefit of the questioner to whom king was unable to provide an answer…. As to faith vs bible knowledge, the two aren’t mutually exclusive, but your right, understanding bible prophecy is not as important as ingraining bible principles, but there is another reason behind what is happening here… People’s eyes are being opened up, and those who reject a servant of Jehovah will himself be rejected by Jehovah…. I’m not saying king is doomed…indeed, I think he’s softened up a little bit…i think part of his biggest problems is he take criticism personally, rather than reflecting the bible attitude of king David when Jehovah sent Nathan to rebuke him (2 Sam 7:4-26, psalm 51)

        • Burt Reynolds

          Hello Tara, thank you for reply. Let me have your website and I’ll read what you have to say. My search for the truth covers many roads and I am looking everywhere . You can also reach me on face book under Groke Goddard. Best wishes.

        • Beverly kenyon

          Hiya Tara, Burt is right about having an uncharitable attitude towards Brother King. He does have a lot of commitments that keep him extremely busy…..his personal life, family commitments, making a living, providing spiritual food through his site! Bet the list is endless! And he did after all post your piece of work here on his site for us all to read, which was very generous of him in my opinion. I read your article and found it very interesting, insightful. I’ve visited your site from time to time and have took away some good points from it. Very similar to Brother King’s work. But I’ve got to say my primary site is Brother King’s. I’ve also read your story and I have no problem with your transition or sexuality because that’s your personal journey and between your conscience and Jehovah. You have a very deep knowledge of Jehovah and must know what he approves of. That’s for you to deal with and personal to you. What does shine through from your writings is your absolute love for Jehovah and his purposes and that’s how I will view you.

          • Burt Reynolds

            Beverly perhaps you can let me know Tara’s site so that I can read for myself. I could not find it. Many thanks. Burt.

            • Beverly kenyon

              Hiya Burt, sorry about posting late but I’ve only just got back from work. Ages ago someone posted and mentioned Jehovahsword.com ( Tara’s site as I found out later ). Out of curiosity I jumped on it a few times but my primary site is EWatchman. That was lovely of you to offer practical help to Patri. Hope she gets all the help she’s entitled to.

          • Bev, I don’t really expect anything from King at this point…that was an auxiliary issue, the real issue is that Jehovah is moving forward with his plan, and King is stubbornly stuck in the past, so Jehovah is moving on without him. I was initially confused as to why King, of all people, would reject evidence of Jehovah moving forward, but I realize that all of this took place in order to uncover King’s haughtiness…that’s the reason for all of this…and although I’ve personally witnessed the outworkings of King’s haughtiness, I am not the type of person to call anyone out for anything…but Jehovah used my grandmother to reveal to me what was going on, and I accepted the direction of the holy spirit through my grandmother…I make no judgments on king or anyone else. If Mr. King doesn’t want to continue on with the new things that’s being revealed, that’s fine, he’s not obligated to, he still has free will, but that’s not going to stop Jehovah from moving forward and getting these new messages across to others…that’s really my whole purpose here, and I may be going about it the wrong way, Jehovah is able to get the right message to the right people at the right time, but my zeal for the truth and dedication to announcing Jehovah’s messages makes it hard to remain quiet, especially when questions go unanswered because someone who has served Jehovah has refused to look at the new information being provided. Since you’ve read my story, you know the struggles I’ve been through, and you also know that some of those struggles were caused by my own haughtiness…but I learned from the lessons I was given, and am still experiencing the effects of those consequences, but I am grateful for them because they have helped my grow as a servant of Jehovah. No more and no less is being asked of Mr. King.

            • Alexandra Bogolin Bautista

              Why do you say he’s stuck in the past?

            • Bklyn Kevin

              @Tara
              Definition of slander. 1 : the utterance of false charges or misrepresentations which defame and damage another’s reputation. 2 : a false and defamatory oral statement about a person.

              Tara said “the real issue is that Jehovah is moving forward with his plan, and King is stubbornly
              {stuck in the past}, -end quote.

              If it wasn’t for brother King the truth is you Tara and I and everyone else on this site would be stuck in the past.
              You’re out right slandering against Mr. King.

              Tara said” I was initially confused as to why King, of all people,
              {would reject evidence of Jehovah moving forward,} -end quote.

              On the contrary Robert King his done just the opposite and his very work here on the web site proves beyond a shadow of doubt that he has most definitely moved forward. More slender from your own words against Mr. Robert King.

              Tara said” but I realize that all of this took place in order to uncover
              {King’s haughtiness.}..end quote.
              that’s the reason for all of this…and although I’ve personally witnessed the out workings of King’s haughtiness,-end quote

              Could you please explain to all of us here how you can justify calling Robert King haughty?, And please save the slanderous lies and give us only the facts.
              In view of your out right slander against Mr. King I feel it is necessary to no longer have / continue any and all conversations concerning Biblical subjects with you Tara.

            • Burt Reynolds

              Absolutely. Stick to the bible. Stick to Jehovah. Well put. Best wishes.

          • Beverly kenyon

            Hiya Tara, Burt is right once again when he says you have a point medically. In your story there are things that I don’t agree with but I’m not your judge. I do sympathise with your struggles. It can’t have been easy but you said lessons were learned so good came out of bad. Bklyn Kevin mentioned Romans 10:2 where it talks about having zeal and you have such zeal for God. I also like to remember Jesus was drawn to the outsiders, the ones on the outside of society…..women, demon possessed people, lepers, the very poor, tax collectors etc. He showed them love and compassion. You have search your heart and find out for yourself if your desires are in contradiction with God’s laws. When you were accusing Brother King of being in the occult ( which is not an accurate story Btw ). I had a similar experience. When I was a lost sheep I was speaking to a religious friend and told her I didn’t know where to go to serve God. She then proceeded to start praying over me and after a lot of praying, she finished and then told me I was now born again. I said, born again as in a born again Christian, she replied, yes! I ran out of there faster than Usain Bolt! I still see her from time to time and she now knows my true religion. Just because Brother King encountered some Pentecostals doesn’t make him one. Like he said, he was glad he COULDN,T speak in tongues. I find that story hilarious!

        • patri

          Tara, you think tooooo much.
          The reason ” king” as you constantly insultingly refer to “a servant of Jehovah” has no new incite is perhaps due to the fact that he doesn’t dabble in the occult?
          Without sounding rude may I mention that you are one who seems to be holding a perpetual grudge from back in the day. Being here seems to be of no use to your wellbeing at all, so why bother turning up every so often like a bad penny…

          • No insult was intended by whati was calling Mr King…I often make comments from my phone which makes editing comments difficult sometimes

            • patri

              Well if you didn’t make any more comments you wouldn’t have any difficulties. Just saying. Problem solved…

            • My difficulties are not from this site… But I do accept responsibility for my past

          • In fact king had Dabbled in occult practice such as speaking in tongues or something to that affect… As he mentioned in one of his podcasts, everyone has a past… And I’m still suffering from the effects of mine, but that doesn’t mean that Jehovah had not forgiven me.

            • ewatchman

              You really ought to get your facts straight. I have never spoke in tongues. What I said in the podcast was that I went to a Pentecost church once about 45 years ago and they baptized me and “tarried” with me to try to get me to speak in tongues. I specifically said I was glad I DID NOT speak in tongues.

            • Have you noticed that everytime you post a podcast, Tara shows up ????
              What’s up with that!

            • patri

              Yes I’ve noticed Joseph. And why did she have to rain on my parade today of all days when I was trying to stop her from going into one by sharing my health shock news! 😉

            • You may not have directly participated in the practice, but you were involved enough to get baptized by them…anyway, my whole point for bringing it up was to show that it’s in the past, and Jehovah’s not concerned with the past, he’s concerned with the present and the future. It doesn’t matter where we’ve been, the point is what we are doing now to move forward, Jehovah is ready and willing to forgive.

            • ewatchman

              Uh, no. That’s not right either. I wasn’t involved with Pentecostals at all. Someone invited me to go to their church and I went and they ended up baptizing me and I never returned. That was it. That was how I related the story. You spun it that I was involved in the occult. Crazy.

            • I’m not aware of a scripture that says false religion’s okay as long as you don’t spend too much time with it… And the point is moot anyway… You were searching for the truth… That was your motivation for going to the church at all… It’s the same thing that motivated my spiritual journey, as evidenced by the fact that Jehovah had called on me, just as he called on you. Burk is right, we are on the same team, we should be working together.

            • ewatchman

              You are just silly.

            • Yeah , i try not to take myself too seriously

            • patri

              And get away from gran, she’s doing your head in…and by extention, all of ours. . .much love Tara.

            • Burt Reynolds

              No way did I say you were on the same team. I said as Christians …if we are Christian….we should work together. Can’t you say anything without twisting it?

            • Yes,we should work together, it’s Robert who doesn’t agree with that…as he’s expressed in past email correspondences. I’m not the one not getting along, I’m just making public what was said in private. As for me forcing you to make your yes mean no, I did not do that, I simply stated my position, you chose to respond.

            • ewatchman

              If you want to work with me than I would suggest printing out some articles on the Watchman’s Post and distributing them. Or, email some JW’s links to some of my articles or YouTube videos.

              But that is not what you mean by advocating that we work together, is it? No, you want to be my editor and promote your crackpot, cockamamie nonsense. Which you are welcome to do. Just not on my platform.

              I have let you have your say here, but that may not continue to be the case going forward.

            • I was actually doing that prior to beginning our site, and when we got started up, we asked if you would like to collaborate, but you rejected that…working together means just that, it’s not one-sided thing, but I understand if you want to bock me…I am actually grateful that you’ve given me a chance to be heard… I’ll try to back off

            • Burt Reynolds

              You asked me a question……now I’ve broken my word again!

          • Burt Reynolds

            Hello Patri how are you this evening? How are you managing? Is there anything that I can do? I have been out today getting some picture rail because we have recently moved in here and we are doing the place up. Wife does the painting I do the sawing. I was looking at Genesis again today. I collect antiquarian books and my bible is from 1703 and has a history of family written in it going back to 1638. The English is so lirical it is like singing. I am inspired by the first verse. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…’ He created time, light and matter in the very first verse of the bible. And of course, all the mathematical laws along with it. How inspiring is that? Perhaps he moves within time. Maybe that is how he can be the alpha and the omega, the one knowing from the beginning, the end. How certain we can be that He knows you, knows us all and will keep you safe no matter what the outcome is for all of us. Today is almost over. Tomorrow is another day, safe within his hand. Speak with you tomorrow . Love from us all.

            • patri

              Burt, I’m trying to reach you via Facebook… P.L…

            • Burt Reynolds

              Hello Patri. There was a fault on the Internet so I only just got your message. Go to Groke Goddard on Facebook. You will find me there, content will confirm the right one. Best wishes.

        • Burt Reynolds

          I have read your story Tara. I think you have a point medically speaking, a point that I have long held. However, I think your argument as to Jehovah tolerating homosexual marriage and that you will be changed into a female when required to go back to the Kingdom Hall, has no biblical basis for belief. Your argument in these pages are targeted at Robert in an attempt to justify your stand on biblical matters. One thing I can say from a biblical standpoint is that prophets of Jehovah would be in unison in their utterances. I am not sure what you mean about being chosen to do something even Christ could not do, in that you are willing to serve/die for God knowing that there is no chance of a resurrection …I hope I have got this straight as I don’t have the document to hand, as I am on an iPad and my memory is poor…but such an option does not exist. In his love for us, everyone bar comparatively few, will enjoy a resurrection if we die beforehand…possibly whether we like it or not! As for me, I have served Jehovah as best I can never once presuming on either a resurrection or in surviving Armageddon. And certainly I have never served him for the reward or even the hope. But Just because he is goodness and righteous. I am concerned for you too in that your story is all about homosexuality and how you have found a new light on Jehovah’s opinion on it, thus giving you the go ahead for your lifestyle, even to the point apparently of being changed into a woman while you sleep. Sometimes during my life I can tell you, I would have given my back teeth for the same. Not for the sexual issues, but just for the depth of understanding some women have and to do without the anger of testosterone. If Jehovah has spoken with you this way, then I find it contrary to his purpose as stated in the bible. I don’t think sodom describes excesses of desire, it clearly describes the act, as does your other description of men lying with men and women with women. As does the very issue of even contemplating adultery result in punishment. Also, I think it rather longwinded for Jehovah to use your grandmother for enlightenment and for her to pass it to you and in pictorial form for interpretation and then back to her for retranslation…it boggles the mind that such would be Jehovah’s way when clearly we need clarity and not speech that is beyond our comprehension. Jehovah’s warnings in times that we are facing have, and I would add, always will be, crystal clear. I am disappointed that you refer to Robert in a clipped manner…he has a name just as you do whether you are on a phone or not. Jehovah seeks graciousness. You have to respect the message and you note that one risks death by rejecting gods prophets, well, you call Robert by the same term and reject him with no evidence and you misrepresented him to me. That’s not nice. I don’t mind if he’s a prophet, anointed or Jehovah’s brother or just a minion like me. What I do care about is if I am learning the truth. You should be working with us as a brother. There is no need to explain your sexuality. No one but Jehovah is interested and if someone were to ask, then you can explain your stand privately. A prophet or anointed is just a vessel to carry the truth. It needs no credentials and even less justification and certainly not a diatribe on sexuality, even if it is a congenital error as you point out. I have every sympathy with it. I have to tell you that for me, your story does not carry the truth to me, simply a justification for your lifestyle and happenings and rewards that do not match the bible I know. Maybe I am unlettered in such. I make no claims for myself. Best wishes to you.

          • You missed the point of the article, it was not to justify anything, I know. i stand… It is for those who are lost and confused… I’m not the one who brought my story up ok this website, but if you want to address it, that’s fine. Ask in doing offering hope to those who will clearly not be accepted anywhere else. And as i state in my article, homosexuality was clearly not gods plan, but the scriptures that deal with it have been mutilated by both Christendom and the WT.

          • Just a few more points to touch on your comment that I didn’t get to before: none of us are prophets, it is not yet the time for prophecying, that’s why the chorus is not yet in unison…the WT is speaking in unison, that doesn’t make them right…the time for restoring the congregation is yet future – that begins during the time of the end – this is the time for ingathering, and refining…you think the 1st century apostles agreed on everything? They couldn’t even agree with Jesus when he told them he would die: the fact is, until Jehovah pours out his full measure of holy spirit, there are going to be things that need to be worked out. But in order to actually work things out, you have to be willing to work with others…Robert is not good at doing that. The articles on my website are not about attacking Robert, and my story only mentions Robert king to say that his work is what got me truly started on my spiritual path to seek the truth. That’s hardly an attack. Also, I have not deceived you about Robert, I deceive no one. I am completely open and honest about my motives. As for my grandmother, the reason Jehovah uses her is because she is anointed, I am not. and so she has a closer relationship with Jehovah than I do…that’s really a matter of logistics.

            • Burt Reynolds

              Hello Tara, I’m not concerned about pedantics. You decieve when you portray something that is not true as truth and if you read again what you wrote, you will know that this is the case. I think you are deceiving yourself also, the reasons being as I stated already. My opinion is that you are moulding the bible to yourself, rather than moulding yourself to the bible. For an example, My son is a paranoid schizophrenic. He would gladly be someone else after near forty years of suffering and hallucinations that make Satan look like santa claus. We have to live with our disabilities, not justify them nor expect to be treated equally by people who know no better. What sex our mind is, whether we suffer or not, whether we are inhibited from practicing our religion by such is irrelevant. Jehovah knows. That’s all that matters. The paradise for a perfect marriage is not yet with us. I’m not equating you with this, but as you talk of principles, this is one of them. The leper was segregated from his family and from everytone but lepers. My son is separated from society, you by your sexuality. My son knows he cannot walk into a church and expect people to take his word when he says he is Christ….at least he does know he can’t when he is well. He knows his limitations and that his disability limits him. Jehovah’s purpose is to have the news of his kingdom announced. If he calls on you to do that, then you had better do it, as I hope I will if told. If jehovah changes you into a woman as you said, to do so, then fine, but if not, your disability may stumble these weakened witnesses and you would not want to do that, as they will see it as contrary. What principle is there for this in the scripture? If you think Jehovah has chosen you, and from what you describe I have my doubts, such as they are, then you can reach a whole world out here doing what Robert does rather than confuse the brothers in the congregation and create fear of purpose at a time when clarity and understanding is required. Well, I had better, shut up now. This is Roberts site and not my platform. I will say nothing more about it as I have already said enough. Best wishes for your future.

            • What have I said exactly that’s not true. My analysis of the passages of the Bible that deal with homosexuality are balanced in their view. I acknowledge God’s original plan for man to be with woman, but the fact is that when reading what the Bible says on the topic of homosexuality (or any subject for that matter), historical context does matter, without it, then we can’t know what exactly the Bible writer is talking about, and this is what it about. You call it pedantics, but why wouldn’t you want to get the most accurate meaning behind what the Bible writers are saying? The only reason not to keep digging to get accurate knowledge is if you have your own agenda…and that what people do…both Christendom and the WT…granted, Christendom does it to a much larger extent…but homophobia still exists, and when you say things like homosexuals should be ostracized like lepers were during the time of Israel, you fuel the hatred that burns inside people like the Orlando shooter…and if that weren’t bad enough, such mentality that is put on a person can and often does lead a person to suicide…that’s not exhibiting God’s love. The purpose of the leper colony, and indeed, the purpose for God’s harsh rules when it came to the Israelites is precisely because they were a rebellious people, and Jehovah needed to make sure the line of Judah and Levi were preserved so that he could produce the Messiah as a legal heir to the throne of David, and because of a promise he made to Abraham…that is the ONLY reason why God went to such great lengths to protect a sinful and rebellious nation, and those laws were necessary BECAUSE of the nations rebellious nature…those who are being prepared to enter God’s kingdom are being prepared for perfection, they are preparing themselves and being prepared by God to have God’s law of love written on their hearts.
              My purpose is to provide a safe haven for people, away from all that vitriol, where you don’t have to feel bad about who you are because you have redemption through the blood of Christ to cover you…and that’s not to say that we abuse the promise…we still do our best to be in line with Jehovah’s standards…but a lot of people don’t really understand those standards, even though they may think they do. Perhaps there are people who are not ready to accept this level of Jehovah’s love and mercy because they can’t understand it…and for those people, it would perhaps be best to stick with the organization as a protection…but God has already started making the way for human perfection…which will require that EVERYTHING we do to be motivated out of love, and not only be motivated by love but also reflect a loving attitude…anything less will fall short of God’s standards…these things are for people who are ready to have the law inscribed on the hearts and who thus are ever less dependent on a written code…a checklist of do’s and dont’s.
              Take some time to meditate on Matthew 22:37-40 if you’re unclear about the foundation of God’s laws.

            • homophobia exist? so God’s in the wrong then? i guess im smokeaphobic, pedapobic, murderphobic and i got a severe case of rapeophobia. is there a such thing as covetophobia cause if so count me in. – Isaiah 5:20

              hatred indeed – Gen 3:15. Amos 5:15. Rom 12:9 -> Gen 19:23-25

            • I never said God was in the wrong…in fact it’s people who twist God’s word so as to equate love with murder and rape who are in the wrong. The fact is that the Bible writers were silent on the issue of gay marriage. Yes, they did talk about homosexuality, but the concept of same-sex marriage did not exist in the 1st century, so there is no way the Bible writers COULD have written about it. The 1st century notion of homosexuality did not include marriage, it did, however, include things such as male temple prostitutes and those who slept around for pleasure . Thus it is these types of acts that the Bible writers had in mind when speaking of homosexuality…they had no concept of love, in the romantic sense, between two people of the opposite sex. This is why I said earlier context is important. And if you think that I’m just nit-picking to make something seem okay that’s not, then I would question your resolve to get to the truth of a matter – the truth is obtained, not by a casual reading of the scriptures, but by studying God’s word – and yes, that includes understanding what the Bible writers had in mind when they used the terms they did. Now, I’m not saying that same-sex marriage was in God’s original plan, far from it; however, I believe that God is making an allowance…and that’s not to say that you can sleep with whoever you want, sex is still to remain within the confines of marriage, but I don’t believe that God had in mind restricting true love when he inspired the Bible writers to write what they did on homosexuality, or sex in general for that matter. He has, however, allowed the misinterpretation of his word to be perpetuated by men, because it did serve as a protection for the congregation. The fact is that rampant sex–just for the sake of sex, was and still is rampant among the gay community – although now a days it’s becoming more and more looked down upon in the gay community. And that’s not to say premarital or extra-marital sex is non-existent among straight people–far from it, but if you disallow straight people in the congregation, then who do you have left? But the time for those misconceptions is ending, and God, I believe, by clearing up this particular misconception is making an allowance for our time, as he did in Moses’ day with certificates of divorce etc…except this allowance is based on love, not on divorce…will the allowance be indefinite – what of same-sex people who come into the “truth” after getting married – how will this be worked out in the new system? I don’t have answers to those questions, but I trust if changes need to be made, Jehovah will step in as he always does.

            • Burt Reynolds

              Tara you put me in a cleft stick. I said I would not take this further and you told Robert off for not letting his yes be yes yet you ask me to let my no be yes! Well, this is Roberts site and I know he does not like tennis being played on it, but with his permission I will make this last reply to you. You ask where you did not tell the truth. You say I compared homosexuality to leprosy. This is not the case, I said that there were restrictions on people according to the law. You have said Jehovah has moved on from Robert and that Robert has not had insight for years. Well consider the silence of Jehovah over these last two thousand years while his purpose comes to its conclusion. Robert has insight for me. He may not have had more insight recently, but who knows if it’s needed? I feel comforted and instructed by his site and his words from the bible. I dont really care if he has more Insight tomorrow or yesterday. What he has is sufficient for today. It’s not about who has insight yesterday or tomorrow. I have never had insight and Jehovah has not abandoned me. Oh dear, Jehovah has not spoken volubly to me for over sixty years. Now to your points about homosexuality. Jehovah’s kingdom is not about gay rights. He does not provide a safe haven for homosexuals to gather together to discuss the scripture. He provides a safe haven for people struggling to do his will. Jehovah will have every mercy for you if you have a disability that means you have a woman’s mind in a male body. Be assured of that. However, his word warns us not to be homosexual in our behaviour. Having a woman’s mind in a male body, does not make us homosexual. Think on it. We are not compelled to have a sexual life if we don’t want it, or can do without it, just as the scripture says. You cannot say, in fact it is offensive to suggest it, that the issue of sodom was not about homosexuality but an excess of homosexuality. You cite children being involved. If what you say is true, then the children would not only have been raped countless times, but that they would be indulging likewise. I’m really at a loss to go further on this. What about your partner? Is he aware that Jehovah is going to change you into a woman? Presumable he loves you for being a man. He is not looking for salvation. Why are you leading him on? You have not thought this through. What happens when you turn up as a woman in the Kingdom Hall? How many brothers are going to believe you have been changed into a woman by Jehovah? How many are going to ask you to prove it?! And when you say you have a womb as well, how many are going to want to prove that too? Really, this is just going to cause confusion and mockery from the congregation. If you want to build a safe haven for the lost and confused, as you say you do, then show them the bible, because everyone is lost and confused. Don’t set yourself up as a leader for transgender, set yourself up as an example for all, everyone. Everyone who is thirsting for knowledge. Jehovah is a God of order and consistency and his bible says what he thinks of homosexuality and the sacredness of marriage. The time for resurrection has not yet come. There is a whole long queue for new, undamaged bodies, unaflicted bodies. Children are dying In their hundreds of thousands through hunger and disease and yet Jehovah is going to turn you into a woman before all the ones awaiting resurrection, and before his due time, while you’re asleep and send you to your congregation as that woman and he is going to ask that congregation to accept you as a transgender woman and to listen to you speak his words in direct conflict with his word the bible. Jehovah does not change. I have every sympathy for you if you are a woman in a male body, but as with all the other afflictions in this world, Jehovah’s time is not yet. Until such time, I would urge you to read what he has to say. Don’t look for interpretation, just look at what it simply says. To be straightforward, if something like and Angel came to me and said, ‘Burt, its okay to live as a couple with another man and to indulge in sexual relations with him, but please don’t be excessive…I don’t like excess. However, I’m going to change you into a woman one night and I want you to go and tell the congregation that I am going to put an end to homosexuality….sorry about your boyfriend…..and introduce a new order…etc etc. I’ll let your grandma know and she can draw it out for you because the way you speak, no one can understand you….’ I would turn around to that Angel and say get you behind me Satan. And if Jehovah came to me and said why did you turn away my prophet, I would reply that I was going on what He said in the bible. That is my limit of understanding of the bible. There are others on this site that can quote their learning, but I am unlettered in such. That’s not false modesty, I can’t even recall what I had for breakfast at times, but my faith is driven by my eyes and understanding, in creation and the way in which we are wonderfully made. If I was transgender, I would pray to Jehovah to help me bear the burden, the same as I do for my son who thinks he is Christ at times, that he should be able to bear the burden. Now if you don’t mind, I have to work on seeking forgiveness for my own sins, and deal with my own contrary feelings that drag me one way or another to neglect my standing before Jehovah.

        1 Corinthians 13:2. I find it refreshing when someone says “I don’t know” (‘re all those number days in Daniel) because my whole life I’ve had to act like I know the answer to everything (bible related) which imo stunts curiosity. Excellent podcast. Thank you! Certainly I can’t write into Bethel, much less the GB, and expect an answer, so I really appreciate that brother King takes his personal time to entertain us all.

  • Sam

    Thanks Robert, just what i needed today! Always helps think in a more balanced way about things. May Jehovah bless you always

    Really enjoyed this podcast. Thanks Bro Robert! ??

    The “Two folds” Concept does relate to Gentiles, please follow:

    Ephesians 2: 14
    For he is our peace, he who made the two parties one [the two folds of sheep in one flock] and destroyed the wall in between that fenced them off. 15 By means of his flesh he abolished the enmity, the Law of commandments consisting in decrees, that he might create the two peoples [two FOLDS] in union with himself into one new man and make peace; 16 and that he might fully reconcile both peoples in one body to God through the torture stake, because he had killed off the enmity by means of himself. 17 And he came and declared the good news of peace to YOU, the ones far off, and peace to those near, 18 because through him we, both peoples [two sheep], have the approach to the Father by* one spirit.

    Matthew 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, giving them these orders: “Do not go off into the road of the nations, and do not enter into a Samaritan city; 6 but, instead, go continually to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

    sheep of the house of Israel = One fold.
    the nations: other sheep, from another fold.

    The take away from above is that the Gentiles do correspond to a “sheep fold”.

    ExCELLENT podcast!! 🙂 – I particularly enjoyed hearing the call ins and some of your personal experiences xD

    Finallly got to listen Brother King’s latest podcast and as usual he didn’t disappoint. Who would’ve thought a prayer, frozen toes and an hot chocolate would result in someone called Peggy becoming a Jehovah’s Witness. Hope she’s still in the truth, that would be a happy ending. Now I need to enlist the help of the “Scriptanator” Bklyn Kevin to find out exactly where in the bible it mentions about lending to Jehovah God when we help ones that are in need. I was awestruck when Brother King brought that point out. Incredible!

    • Bklyn Kevin

      Proverbs 19:17.
      The one showing favor to the lowly is lending to Jehovah, And He will repay him for what he does.

      • Beverly kenyon

        Thank you so much Bklyn Kevin. Apart from writing those scriptures down in my notebook I’ll be showing my colleague and friend lee what’s written in the bible about trying to help people who are worse off and in need. He thinks I’m too soft but I tell him if you can you have to help someone who’s need is greater than your own. I’ve seen great acts of random kindness and that’s by people who don’t know about God, so as someone who has a knowledge of Jehovah I have an obligation to help someone who’s need is greater than mine. But only if I have the means to do so. It’s also a good chance to give a witness. You gotta seize your moment. I’m still in awe of that scripture. I’m sure I’ve probably read that scripture but I have no recollection of it and the Deuteronomy scripture as well. Dust like me lending to our creator. I find that incredible and makes me a bit emotional.

        • Bklyn Kevin

          As you say we have to seize the moment to do what’s in our means especially when bearing witness concerning Jehovah’s grand purpose.

          Matthew 5:16
          Likewise, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your fine works+ and give glory to your Father who is in the heavens.

          Colossians 3:17
          Whatever it is that you do in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, thanking God the Father through him.

          • Beverly kenyon

            I don’t know why Bklyn Kevin, when you post me scriptures I tend to remember most of them and even recall them at will. Apart from knowing about things that are written in the bible, I’m quite rubbish at knowing the exact scripture as you know because I’m always begging for your help. It’s like I’m having short bursts of bible studies when you’re posting me scriptures. It also takes me back to when I was studying with the Lockharts,( they were so patient and lovely to me ), and I know when you’re new and just studying you tend to get love bombed but they were so normal, I was clueless about finding my way round the bible, so embarrassing especially when I went to the Kingdom Hall, I’d be sweating and heart pounding thinking I don’t know where anything is I’d get mad with myself so I was determined I would make it my business to find my way round the bible and get to know all the books. So now I’ve come full circle by trying to remember scriptures. Lol. Thanks Bklyn Kevin.

            • Bklyn Kevin

              Beverly I don’t remember where all the scriptures are either however I do remember the quotes in my head from reading the bible on a daily basis, now if you remember the quote from the bible and can’t seem to remember where it’s located, you could simply google the quote or a key word.
              Example Type in
              “the man of lawlessness / bible” in what ever search engine you prefer / have , then you will notice a whole page of bible quotes come up with the reference of its location in the bible.

            • Beverly kenyon

              Thank you Bklyn Kevin for that handy tip. I will give that a go but I’m a lightweight amateur at technology, but I’m always up for trying new things. I’m not that savvy. Lol. I like paper….I know, that’s so centuries ago!
