Whoever Drinks this Cup…

//Whoever Drinks this Cup…

Monday, March 21

This cup means the new covenant by virtue of my blood.1 Cor. 11:25.

Those who rightly partake of the Memorial emblems are absolutely sure that they are parties to the new covenant. God has made the new covenant with the spiritual Israelites.  This covenant has been validated by Christ’s sacrifice and has been made operative by his shed blood. Jesus is the Mediator of the new covenant, and loyal anointed ones taken into it receive a heavenly inheritance.Individuals entitled to partake of the Memorial emblems know that they have also been taken into the Kingdom covenant. Because they are in the Kingdom covenant, faithful anointed ones will reign with Christ as heavenly kings forever.

COMMENTARY

Satan has always sought to diminish the wondrous generosity of Jehovah’s adopting many sons and ultimately endowing them with the gift of immortality. According to the nearly all-pervasive teachings of Christendom, going to heaven is commonplace —it is more or less everyone’s birthright. And supposedly everyone has an immortal soul anyway. No big deal.

But even among Jehovah’s Witnesses there is a submerged sect who promote the idea that the Watchtower is practicing a dark satanic ritual by passing the cup and bread among persons who have been told they are not entitled to partake of the blood of Jesus. It is their erroneous contention that the new covenant is between God and all Christians.

But such is not the case. Those persons are mere pretenders who are acting under the influence of the phony angel of light. Obviously, Satan’s intention is to induce persons to partake who may not be entitled. Paul specifically warned that anyone doing so will be guilty of violating what is sacred.

Those who may be swayed by the deceivers should consider this: Christ’s ransom sacrifice has the purchasing power to buy all of Adam’s offspring —including the dead. That means billions of persons will be redeemed from death to live again on this earth. And the vast majority who have lived and died were unrighteous in God’s eyes. Some even outright enemies and haters of God. They do not have to acknowledge God in anyway in order to receive the resurrection of judgment, much less drink from the cup of holy union. 

The point is, if the billions who will be resurrected as humans were not parties of the new covenant, why would it be necessary for those who will survive the coming great tribulation in the flesh to be part of the new covenant? It is not. Their symbolically washing their robes in the blood of the Lamb does not mean they are part of the Kingdom. It merely represents that they have put faith in the Son of God and acted accordingly.

In further proof that the millions of Christians who will survive the end of this world are not in the new covenant, in the context of Paul’s comment that is the day’s theme scripture, the anointed apostle went on to write: “For whenever you eat this loaf and drink this cup, you keep proclaiming the death of the Lord, until he comes.”

Jesus’ coming concludes the new covenant. However, it does not immediately result in salvation for the great crowd. First, upon arriving Christ will initiate the judgment of the house of God. The house of God is the spiritual temple of persons who have been called. Christ will accomplish the expulsion of a wicked and sluggish slave faction and reward the faithful remaining ones with entry into the Kingdom.

The coming of Christ will bring an end to the drinking of the cup of the covenant because all of the sons of the Kingdom will ultimately be approved then; some, like the original apostles, by virtue of their experiencing the first resurrection and the remaining ones on earth by their being sealed —after which they will shine as brightly as the sun in the Kingdom of their Father, which will be a reflection of the glorious light Christ will shine upon them during his manifestation.

The great crowd will experience the revealing of the sons of God as a token of their being accepted into the Kingdom as faithful, earthly subjects and immediate beneficiaries of the new covenant’s accomplishment.

    Hi. Ok, I’ve been fluctuating between “getting this” (that only the chosen ones partake) and not totally getting this BECAUSE when I read scriptures like John 6:35-58 I FEEL moved to partake as a member of the other sheep. I personally can’t say with certainty that I’ve been extended the heavenly invitation, therefore I know as of today I’m NOT chosen, and I’m totally fine with that. I’m not jealous, paradise earth will be beyond amazing. But why do I FEEL so moved to partake? Why would millions of us just pass it around and refuse it? To test our humility? I’m not debating two hopes….I believe in that. Thank you for entertaining what may seem like “an elementary question” to you more seasoned bible students. Ive been unraveling and rebuilding a lot of jumbled stuff in my brain over the last year. Thanks for your patience!! My elders don’t (and can’t) really address many of my questions anymore.

      Honestly, I think there is a misleading element involved. Satan has always sought to belittle the fact that God has determined to produce a heavenly kingdom composed of persons who had formerly been condemned to death as sinners. That’s why all the churches under his influence teach that everyone goes to heaven – to diminish Jehovah’s great generosity towards a chosen few. Even non- Christian religions teach that everyone goes off to the Great Beyond, somewhere.

      I think more and more of Jehovah’s Witnesses are being over-reached by it too. And while you say you are not questioning the “two hopes” are you sure you have not given ear to a little voice out there that is saying: “Did God really say that you must not eat the bread and drink the cup when it is passed?”

      • Alexandra Bogolin Bautista

        I have definitely given ear to that little voice. That’s my “problem.” I don’t understand scripturally why partaking = being anointed. My (current and flexible) understanding is that a CHRISTIAN (follower, not necessarily member “of the body of Christ”) would partake. Thanks for your patience! Can you share with me a series of scriptures? I will also spend more time doing my own homework.

        • Robert and others such as Brian talked about this just a little while ago if you scroll through their coments on Disqus.
          heres a link that doesnt exactly answer your question but will help keep the subject freash on your mind so you can find your answer – http://tinyurl.com/hgusuy9

    • i hope im not far off on my comment here, correct me if im mistaken Rob.

      Alex. maybe you can even find me some bible examples for me. it seems to me that from scripture record we have clear examples of how one is invited.

      remember Paul (Saul). he was just about blinded. others had a gust of wind with fier-like spirit over them.

      this does not mean rainbows need to shoot out of the sky for every person but its just as real as Jesus being right there as Jehovah’s spirit makes it clear so there is no question just as is read in bible accounts

        Good points you brought out DA. I remember when I miraculously found EWatchman site, I thought, who is this guy? I had to find out because I’m no Koolaid drinker! Read Brother King’s history and he mentions he’s one of the anointed and describes it as his “little change”, and as an intense feeling which compelled him to intensely look into bible prophecies resulting in creating a refuge for truth seekers who genuinely love Jehovah God and his son. Bklyn Kevin provides scripture that explains being anointed. Jehovah isn’t capricious that he would just leave a person who thinks they might be anointed with doubts. But however it happens for an individual, they would know. I might be wrong, but isn’t there a scripture that explain the seriousness of taking the emblems? I remember a sister saying, just as she knows she’s heterosexual, she then knows she’s not one of the anointed. I don’t know if that simple explanation is ridiculous or genius!

        • yeah i had backspaced some of my commen similar to how you noted Jehovah wouldnt be capricious about that. yeah the scriptures 1-Corinthians 11:27 its in that link i posted

          • Beverly kenyon

            Thanks DA for scripture. One for my notebook. Verses 28,29 goes on to say a person has to scrutinise themselves before eating and drinking otherwise they bring judgement against themselves. It was good reading and thinking about that topic and now I have the scripture. It’s win,win all round. Ta, DA. ( Ta means thanks ).

            • yeah, i went through that scripture just a little while ago and wrote a e-mail to Robert about it also. something i need to work on

            • yw, glad im good for somethin 🙂

      ‘Get out of Babylon, unless you want to suffer part of her plagues’:

      The Illuminati within the Jehovah’s Witnesses have a hidden agenda that
      is separate from the published goals of the WT Society, although they also
      support many of the goals of the Society.

      The WT Society performs a secret ritual every year which is their primary
      ritual. This ritual is actually the ancient gnostic (satanic) ritual of
      saying no to the body of Christ. This ancient satanic ritual is now
      secretly practiced under the disguise of the Memorial Supper – where the
      elements of communion are passed and no one partakes of the elements.
      (When I say “no one” I mean that in a qualified sense-only a
      small group are allowed to partake. The actual figures of how many partake
      of the elements is a totally fictitious figure according to my sources,
      which (the number) is created at Bethel headquarters in Brooklyn.

      Contacts from various places today indicate that the modern Watchtower
      Society is working with the New World Order. This implies that at some
      point the Society began cooperating with the New World Order.

      Victims of Satanism have disclosed information about some of the extent of
      Satanism within the rank and file Jehovah’s Witnesses, and hierarchy.

      When it became
      obvious that the art department of the Watchtower Society has been hiding
      Satanic symbols in the pictures of Watchtower publications for many years
      the Governing
      Body chose to cover it up rather than stop it.

      In the Be Wise As Serpents book, chapter 1.11 discusses how the Satanism
      within the Illuminati and the Watchtower Society could be tracked by an
      understanding of Enochian magic. Readers may want to refer back to that
      chapter after reading this paragraph.

      The Illuminati operating within the
      Watchtower Society use the Enochian Language which has its own language
      and its own Enochian alphabet (letters in boxes). According to
      eyewitnesses who have left the J.W. part of the Illuminati, the Enochian
      alphabet is known and used as the cult language by those Illuminati
      operating in the high levels of the Watchtower Society. In other words,
      their ceremonies are done in this ritual Enochian language.

      The Watchtowers. It was believed that
      angels ruled a certain compass direction and they lived in the ends of the
      earth (above the earth). These angels are to
      record every event that occurs in the world.

      Remember
      from the Be Wise As Serpents book that knowing the Watchtowers is the key
      to Enochian magic.

      There are books on the subject available
      to anyone who wants to learn this Enochian magic. Learn the laws of
      Enochian Magick, how to use the Watchtowers and the six forces of Magick,
      learn Enochian Yoga and travel in the Body of Light.

      We have also learned those three phrases
      of terminology that are popular with Enochian Magic, and the Freemasons
      are “Millennial Dawn”, “Golden Age” and

      “Watchtower.” Russell named his organization Watchtower
      Bible and Tract Society. His earlier magazine was called The
      Golden Age. Before the name of Jehovah’s Witnesses was established
      the followers of Russell’s teachings were known as Russellites and Millennial
      Dawnist. Not a chance this is coincidence!
