No More Haughty Boasters!

//No More Haughty Boasters!

Monday, June 6

The eyes of Jehovah are roving about through all the earth to show his strength in behalf of those whose heart is complete toward him.2 Chron. 16:9.

Jehovah is intensely interested in those who belong to him. Therefore, we can have absolute confidence that what we do for Jehovah “out of a clean heart” is never in vain.  It is also sobering to know that Jehovah does not tolerate hypocritical worship. As his eyes “are roving about through all the earth,” he can detect those whose heart is not “complete toward him.” “Jehovah detests a devious person,” says Proverbs 3:32, such as one who deliberately puts up a front, feigning obedience while practicing sin in secret. Although a devious person may skillfully deceive other humans for a while, Jehovah’s almightiness and righteousness guarantee that “the one covering over his transgressions will not succeed.”

COMMENTARY

What is true for individuals may also apply to groups of individuals, such as those grouped in organizations and corporations. And it is hard to imagine a more devious scheme than what the Watchtower has perpetrated against Jehovah’s Witnesses. 

Although the deception covers a wide range of Bible prophecies, which have been the topics of dozens of articles on this website and in the book, it all comes down to one intent: deluding Jehovah’s Witnesses into believing that Jesus has already come and that his other coming, call it the third coming of Christ, is to destroy the world and usher the faithful into paradise. In other words, there is no day of reckoning. The judgment of the house of God has been reduced to mere theocratic history. 

To illustrate the point, the Watchtower teaches that the organization is a spiritual paradise. Even though the Bible describes a blessed condition where there will not be even one predatory person to menace God’s people, illustrated by the lion laying down with the lamb, the Watchtower has succeeded in convincing Jehovah’s Witnesses that the organization is such a place, even though thousands of children have been molested by predatory perverts.

Stephen Lett (pictured above) once scolded the Bethel family for their daring to believe the widely publicized reports that the Governing Body has tolerated child abuse. Such reports were apostate lies -“ridiculous,” fumed the Governing Body member during “Morning Worship.” (YouTube clip of Lett scene)

Of course, the thousands of victims of Jehovah’s Witnesses pedophiles do not think that such charges are ridiculous. Neither do legal authorities who have been involved in numerous law suites against the Watchtower. And we may be certain Jehovah does not consider the accusations against those whom he has entrusted to protect his sheep to be ridiculous either.  

As another example of their deviousness, the prophecy of Zephaniah foretells that Jehovah will create a “pure language” that will be the mother tongue of his cleansed people. Again, the Watchtower has convinced Jehovah’s Witnesses that because they all are all unified in believing the same dogma they are speaking the foretold pure language. However, the third chapter of Zephaniah clearly indicates that the “change” comes in the aftermath of God rising up to the prize, when he pours out his wrath. Here is how the latest version of the New World Translation words it: “‘So keep yourselves in expectation of me,’ declares Jehovah, ‘Until the day when I rise up to take plunder, for my judicial decision is to gather nations, to assemble kingdoms, to pour out on them my indignation, all my burning anger; for by the fire of my zeal the whole earth will be consumed. For then I will change the language of the peoples to a pure language, so that all of them may call on the name of Jehovah, to serve him shoulder to shoulder.’”

Anyone who simply reads the passage above without the Governing Body’s commentary ought to be able to discern the truth. The truth is, the change comes in the aftermath of the outpouring of Jehovah’s burning anger. The prophecy goes on to relate the results of the execution of God’s judgments —the creation of a true spiritual paradise. “For then I will remove the haughty boasters from among you; and you will never again be haughty in my holy mountain. I will allow a humble and lowly people to remain in your midst, and they will take refuge in the name of Jehovah. Those remaining of Israel will practice no unrighteousness; they will not speak a lie, nor will a deceitful tongue be found in their mouths; they will feed and lie down, and no one will make them afraid.”

The leadership of Jehovah’s Witnesses cannot understand this because they are the haughty boasters who have worked deceit. But their days are numbered. Their lies will not stand up to the heat of God’s indignation. The day of Jehovah’s rising up for the plunder is very near.

  • A devious scheme is what the Watchtower has perpetrated against Jehovah’s Witnesses. Indeed!

    ( hilarious photo as well ???)

    • ewatchman

      Yeah, I stole that image off of Pintrest

      • Love it!

        • Beverly kenyon

          I love it too. It was the first thing that made me laugh. So funny. That pinky ring is hideous……it knocks me sick!

          • rajan

            that kind of ring is usually associated with the freemasons

            • Basavaraj Of North Karnataka

              You mean the ring in the right little finger? You mean they are practicing freemasonry?

            • rajan

              no i am not saying that he is freemason. The square ring on the little finger is similar as the freemasons use
              But this is an illustration and i cannot see the usual occultic symbols that are inscribed on the ring

            • patri

              Basavaraj, before you research this subject prepare yourself for a shock. Since Russell’s fascination with pyramidology, the use of the Masonic & Templar’s symbol of the cross & the crown, the occultic winged sun that appeared on several early books, the WT has probably been infiltrated by a secret coven of Devil worshippers. It stands to reason as demons have always sought to insinuate themselves into the midst of the leadership of God’s people. The presence of such evils within the orgsnisation is simply another manifestation of “the mystery of lawlessness” at work in the house of God which Paul foretold would emanate from the man of lawlessness ” “according to the operation of Satan. Hope I’ve wetted your appetite! And also that I’ve quoted Robert’s work and not anybody else’s.

            • Your right about that, that’s one deep rabbit hole that I followed some 15 years ago.

            • patri

              I’m wishing Basavaraj an “awfully big adventure”! The ” infiltration” all makes perfect sense when you know who’s the ruler of this world…

            • Burt Reynolds

              My father was a free mason, he was master of his lodge, Civitas Lodge. He had all the regalia and so on but never wore a ring. ‘Men don’t wear jewellery ‘ he used to tell me. I was looked after by the masons at boarding school in Watford when he died. I say ‘looked after’ but it actually damaged me for life. My experience was that the lower ranks were rather like the body of witnesses in that they were drones. I never saw anything unscrupulous, and have always assumed that it’s more or less a front…the charitable part….for the wheeling and dealing that goes on at the top. But a more perfect mirror in the way that the JW organisation is run, would be difficult to find. And as far as both organisations go, I don’t think they need satans help to get along, they seem to be managing quite alright on their own.

            • patri

              Lol to your last paragraph Burt. You say you “didn’t see anything unscrupulous”. The Masons are, after all, a secret society – one ‘department’ not knowing what the department above them knows as ‘information’ is compartmentalised. So i can understand your equation with the JW org!! Think you’re right about the charity work being a front…Perfect mirror indeed.

            • Beverly kenyon

              Mmmmm……interesting!

            • Beverly kenyon

              Don’t the 7 “Rockstars” (they’re revered like Rockstars) realise that they’re the ones bringing reproach on Jehovah’s name all by themselves and bringing ridicule on his people, even before GT begins when that prophecy will happen when they’re brought low. They’re the boasters saying we have to protect Jehovah’s name when it’s written all over the bible that Jehovah says, BECAUSE OF MY NAME etc. How arrogant and brazen that they think they’re more powerful than God himself!!! They have a long list of crimes against Jehovah. Murder ( suicides, flip flopping of blood issue, Lies, Fornication ( United Nations relationship) Betrayal, Vanity, Arrogance just to mention a few. All traits of who’s really in charge of them, they’re boss Satan, the Man of Lawlessness sitting in the heart of Jehovah’s temple. Jehovah is more than capable of protecting his name! They must drink gallons of Horlicks ( a night time beverage over here in England ) to help them sleep at night otherwise how could they sleep at night or they simply have no working conscience.

            • Burt Reynolds

              This raises a point in my mind. I have not assumed to date that the governing body actually knows the truth. Are you saying here that the gb actually KNOW the truth of the bible; are educated in themselves so that they are aware of their transgression? I ask because when you say they are guilty of murder, they would need to know the truth and meaning of the bible. If they are not aware of the bible truths, can it be that they are deceived, and ‘know not what they are doing’ rather than committing premeditated murder? If this is the case then a great many other religions are blood guilty also…which i suppose is a clear fact. The gb have have always seemed to me to be convinced of what they say but are deluded and full of pride and arrogance, but not knowledgeable in their own right. i assumed this is why they threaten and control the flock. Maybe they are guilty of murder by neglect.

            • Beverly kenyon

              I’m not as clever and educated as you Burt, but I will stand by my opinion. And no they’re not committing premeditated murder, but their endless rules and regulations have sent some emotionally weak ones over the edge. They do know the truth but they’re spiritually blind when they read God’s word, it has no impact on their hearts…..not getting the real meaning of the things they’re reading. And actually I think you answered your own question when you put it really cleverly by saying that maybe they’re guilty of murder by neglect. I have first hand experience of this because a few years back a witness friend of mine called Paul ( out of respect I won’t mention his full name or the congregation he belonged to ) when he was disfellowshipped and then shunned hung himself in his bedroom. At the time I was going through a really bad family situation but Paul kept trying to reach out to me and I tried but I was wrapped up in my bad situation. He wrote me a letter which I still have with no clue as to what he was going to do. Here was a witness who really tried to do everything right, got married in the truth, had a gorgeous child, had a good job, worked hard spent hours on the ministry was a very kind quiet person but he couldn’t cope with being so cut off and being alone. Paul had a drink problem. When he was happy he didn’t touch a drop but his marriage hit a bad patch and because he was such a sensitive soul hitting the bottle was his coping mechanism. A witness a while back when we were talking about what happened to Paul said she hoped Jehovah remembers Paul. I always feel bad when I see his mother. She told me not one witness came to see her. So yes Burt, murder by neglect! And sorry I don’t have any scriptures to back up what I say but if you open your bible and do some searching I’m sure you’ll find something fitting. These are real people with real problems their dealing with out here in the real world!!!

            • Burt Reynolds

              Hello Beverly, I apologise if I have given an inflated impression of myself as to education or ‘cleverness’. It was not my intent and in fact I thought I posed a rather basic question. I just wondered if the gb actually lie deliberately for their own ends of gain, or if they truly believe the quite startling stuff they meet out to brothers. To my mind, being deliberate, In full possession of the truth is one thing, acting like, as the title says, haughty people, but too proud to retract, deluded and misled is something else. There is a ‘saying’…there is no limit to the amount of damage you can achieve when you think you are doing right’. In reality I suppose there is no excuse for the gb, and I suppose they have to stand before the judge like the rest of us. The gb have brought all the congregations under their umbrella of stubborn behaviours as the Internet shows and is rife with. I suppose, far from being clever, I have made a conscious decision to go back to page one of the bible and start all over again and get the basics right this time. The problem is for me that it has taken fifty years of my life to finally come to the decision that the gb is misleading, or has misled me.

            • Jehovah’s Witnesses commit suicide at a rate far exceeding (5-10 times greater) the general population.

            • Beverly kenyon

              No Burt, you don’t have to apologise to me. You haven’t wronged me. I’ve seen first hand the after effects of their never ending man made rules. We’re trying to make sense of what we read in the bible and and how they’re looking after Jehovah’s flock. And I’m still in reeling, like you at how they’re misleading Jehovah’s people. They have absolutely no fear of our God. That really blows my mind! I’m an ordinary person Burt, who knows right from wrong, I try to do right by my fellow human being, I try to understand a person’s feeling, I’m always getting things wrong when I try to get things right, but as I say to my grand daughter, Destiny, Nana loves you the most in the world but I love Jehovah God even more and his Son, Jesus Christ who gave up his life for people in the world. She understands how important that is to me and doesn’t get jealous. Lol. It doesn’t matter Burt how long it’s taken you to get back to page one of the bible, it’s exciting that you’re doing it. Coupled with everything you’re now learning from Brother King and others here on this site you’re now on the next phase. Forget about age. That age thing is only in this world and it’s nonsense! It’s the person that matters and what they have to say. You’re still D22 because Jehovah put eternity in our hearts. It’s hard wired into us! Absolutely love reading your posts because I can tell you’re a proper gent and immensely funny and love the banter between you and Patri. Hope everything is good between us Burt. We’re all struggling in our own way.

            • Unfortunately a lot of people have died because of the Watchtower in one way or another. No body keeps tally.

            • Beverly kenyon

              And each and everyone was Jehovah’s sheep and had family. So very sad when a person gets to that point. They must’ve felt like the loneliest person in the world. Thank you Joseph.

            • It’s heartbreaking……??

            • a known error not corrected is a lie, etc…

            • Joe Dman

              When I got re-instated, I stopped by to see two elders that I’ve always been close to and that was one of the things I brought out as to why I didn’t return right away, that we’ve been preaching a lie. All my friends and family that I told about the generation that would not die before the end came, I lied to. They can honestly say I lied to them. But when the GB says it, it was a weeding process. And the light gets brighter. But I straight out told them that “you and I were lied to, you can spin it any way you want, but it was still a lie”. (Crickets chirping)
              So everyone from it’s origination told that lie and that’s the main reason my father won’t listen to a word I say about what I believe, even though he knows I know they were wrong and I told him it was in prophecy about their “misunderstanding”. The first time I tried to talk to him he told me about a JW who he worked with and was so confident that the end was coming in 1975 that that’s all he talked about. So, sad to say, I hope my father dies before it’s too late for a resurrection. But Jehovah reads hearts and I trust him. I wouldn’t want my father living in the Kingdom if he couldn’t develop the love and desire to serve Jehovah and potentially hurt someone else’s relation with Jehovah.

            • you didnt lie when you didnt know any better. you know better now.
              you went around and was mistaken in some of your message. concentrate on what good you did for Jehovah at the time as well. you know Jehovah understood you didnt know any better or mean any harm but him seeing how you stuck up for him sure makes him very happy about you and something to talk about.

              well, your dad will have time under Jesus rule to get his act stright

            • Burt Reynolds

              Thanks. Dear me, I have a lot of uncorrected errors in my life…..!! It looks like Ive been living a lie!! Or is that the other way round…?

            • they know what mistakes are there concerning 1914 etc.. and yet they still promote it. Jehovah makes that clear throughout scripture as you can read time and again here on e-Watchman. or is Jehovah mistaken in his judgments?

            • Burt Reynolds

              I see what you mean now. Thanks.

            • just think of the Pharisees but also those that would actully listen to Jesus, like Nicodemus

        How do we know this refers to the governing body? Best wishes.

        • Bklyn Kevin

          I never said it was the governing body however if any of the anointed should ever become wicked like Judas Iscariot that would make them an enemy of Jehovah and God’s enemies will be defeated Psalms 21: (8-12).

          • Burt Reynolds

            Hello Kevin, I took the context from what Joseph was saying about the watchtower as you were replying to him. Who then does this apply to? Thanks.

            • Bklyn Kevin

              Malachi 4: “For look! the day is coming, burning like a furnace, when all the presumptuous ones and all those practicing “wickedness” will become like stubble. The coming day will certainly devour them,” says Jehovah of armies, “and it will leave them neither root nor branch
              Revelation 16:16
              And they gathered them together to the place that is called in Hebrew Armageddon.
              And the wild beast was caught, and along with it the false prophet that performed in front of it the signs with which he misled those who received the mark of the wild beast and those who worship its image. While still alive, they both were hurled into the fiery lake that burns with sulfur Revelation 19:20.

          • patri

            Bklyn K, must say I’m rather confused…
            You said “S. Lett is truly being a man of lawlessness’ I.e apostate, the Antichrist…help!

            • Bklyn Kevin

              Hello patri thank you for catching my obvious mistake that I had made with my poor wording.

              I should have said he is “acting” like a man of lawlessness.
              By my using the word “being” a man of lawlessness’ surely implies
              Stephen Lett is the man of lawlessness.
              That just can’t be true due to the fact that he has not yet disowned his owner Jesus ,nor did he get revealed.
              2 Peter 2:1. 2 Thessalonians 2:3.

              That will precede / take place when Jesus comes in his future Parousia.
              Then, indeed, the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will do away with by the spirit of his mouth and bring to nothing by the manifestation of his presence.

              2 Thessalonians 2:8.

            • patri

              My profuse apologies Bklyn K. I re-read through your comments re S. Lett again this afternoon and to my shock horror realised that you did use the correct wording “ACTING like the man of lawlessness”. Im at a loss where the word ‘being’ mistakenly came from and I’m so sorry to have taken up your time replying to me. Thank you so much from Mortified Molasses Me.
              P.s did get stuck in to your link so I’m.overdosed for the day. Feel exhausted with all this imformation and scriptures im going to find a watchtower to read and give myself head a break. Cheerio

            • Bklyn Kevin

              On the contrary you were absolutely right!!! .
              I edited the word from “being” to “acting”.
              In other words I corrected the error you took note of in order to clarify my comment.
              PS I’m very glad you are paying attention and caught my mistake. Thank you.

            • patri

              Phew! I can put the watchtower back on the shelf then, what a relief!

  • patri

    Yes, “their days are numbered” Robert. The second part of 2 Chro 16:9 says, “You have acted foolishly respecting this, for from now on there will exist wars against you”. The leaders hearts are not only contemptuous but are totally INcomplete…But completely hypocritical.

    • Burt Reynolds

      Does 2chronicles 16:9 refer to the governing body? Best wishes.

      • patri

        Burt, the third king of Judah Asa was taken to task by both a seer and prophet. Azariah reminded Asa that “Jehovah is with you as long as you prove to be with him” and “if you leave him he will leave you”. Hanani pointed out Asa’s inconsistency in not leaning upon the God who had delivered him from the Ethiopian force. And for his foolishness, Asa would now face continued warfare. He went solo, wouldn’t listen to correction, and became oppressive to his peoples. I know this will ring a few bells…I had to read the context so thanks for helping me study. 🙂

        • Burt Reynolds

          No bells, just a dull thud. Thanks for the insight. Best wishes.

          • patri

            Burt, sorry about that.
            Types and antitypes as Augustine puts it; the new is in the old CONTAINED, the old is by the new EXPLAINED. Asa, as leader of god’s nation went rogue, I’ve given a couple of facts above so that’s my version of the correlation between Asa, the GB and 2 Chronicles 16.
            Awaiting Robert to sort me out…

  • Operation of Error Indeed!

  • Bklyn Kevin

    The very fact that Stephen Lett “out right lied” regardless of the overwhelming evidence against the watchtower clearly shows their intent to not only cover up / protect their idolized image of them selves but also to avoid future financial losses due to the greater number their followers cooling off by leaving and no longer financially supporting the watchtower because of their acts of lawlessness. Matthew 24:12

    They’re doing damage control like most worldly corporations and are obviously only protecting their own interest and not the interest of the children / victims who had been sexually abused and it has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt in a court of law.

    Stephen Lett is truly being a man of lawlessness with his out right lies and lack of protection for the children which is contrary to what the bible teaches.

    The form of worship that is clean and undefiled from the standpoint of our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their tribulation, and to keep oneself without spot from the world.
    James 1:27.

      Jehovah’s Witnesses – Documentary “Cracks in the Watch Tower”

  • well shiver me timbers! the new NWT changed the word booty

    • Joe Dman

      Yeah i noticed that too. I remember being at a convention and that scripture was read and a Bunch of kids started snickering. I jacked them up. That’s back when I first got the “truth”. I wouldn’t even drive one mile over the speed limit. To think, I was well on my way to being a”society man”.

  • Joe Dman

    Could it be that Mr. Lett has never been to the legal department and all these reports are kept from him so that he is not deterred from his mission to keep donors, I mean brothers, from being stumbled?
    See no evil, heart no evil, speak no evil.
    That may be the main reason they transferred the legal responsibilities from the GB to the legal department a while back. I think Brother King touched on that once in his book or an article.

  • They are so drunk with the Society’s intoxicating liquor. They have gone astray in their seeing, because they are under the delusion that Christ’s presence began in 1914. They are so thoroughly convinced of it that only the actual presence of Christ will disabuse them from it. That is when they will be hurled down with force and trampled by Jehovah’s powerful executor of his judgments.
