Question: One question per person please, if you expect to receive an answer. @Uncle Thesis - "Memorial partakers. This is the number of baptized individuals who partake of the emblems at the Memorial worldwide. Does this total represent the number of anointed ones on earth? Not necessarily. A number of factors—including past religious beliefs or even mental or emotional imbalance—might cause some to assume mistakenly that they have the heavenly calling. We thus have no way of knowing the exact number of anointed ones on earth; nor do we need to know. The Governing Body does not keep a list of all partakers, for it does not maintain a global network of anointed ones." http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2011609?q=number+of+memorial+partakers&p=par @Samael--- (Je·ho′vah) [the causative form, the imperfect state, of the Heb. verb ha·wah′ (become); meaning “He Causes to Become”].

I know that may be a tall order especially with my natural relatives but I am still hoping. In death I don't hope, I know nothing. All my hoping is while I am alive.That hope of a better world keeps me going. I know that when God makes a promise (of a new earth in which righteousness is to dwell) it will happen.

The hope of living forever in righteousness on earth. @Finaltrump---I speak english. @Fiddlecat & Tim-- (smiles) @Finaltrump--- I am not familiar with Greek, however we believe they are in the earthly courtyard of God's great spiritual temple rendering God sacred service day and night.

Actually Sister we do keep track of the anointed. when I partook for the first time, it was noted on my publishers card. ask any elder and he will confirm this. otherwise, wow what a great question to get all the haters riled up. they are blind and have tickled their ears and they don;t want truth, shake off the dust and walk away, that's what i would do. Agape.>>Thursday, May 23 We who have exercised faith do enter into the rest.—Heb. 4:3. When quoting Genesis 2:2 concerning God’s rest, Paul wrote under inspiration the words of today’s text. (Heb. 4:4, 6, 9) So the seventh day was ongoing in Paul’s day. How much longer was that day of rest to continue? In order to answer that question, we must remember the purpose of the seventh day. Genesis 2:3 explains what it is: “God proceeded to bless the seventh day and make it sacred.” That day was ‘made sacred’—sanctified, or set apart, by Jehovah—in order to bring his purpose to completion. That purpose is for the earth to be inhabited by obedient men and women who will take care of it and all life upon it. (Gen. 1:28) It is toward the realization of that purpose that both Jehovah God and Jesus Christ, the “Lord of the sabbath,” have “kept working until now.” (Matt. 12:8; John 5:17) God’s rest day will continue until his purpose in connection with it has been fully realized at the end of Christ’s Thousand Year Reign. w11 7/15 3:4, 5

Bettye Originally Answered: CNN Quotes That Jehovah's Witness Michael Jackson Sold Wash Towels Door 2 Door. What Do You Think?
Well, this is obviously a transcription error. It is true that Jackson sold Watchtower magazines door to door in the 1970s and 80s. Around 1987 he left the religion. Some on this board who CLAIM to be Witnesses take exception to the statement that he, as a Witness, "sold" the magazines. They are incorrect. During the time that Michael Jackson was a Witness, they did SELL the magazines and other Watchtower literature for cash. This was the case until 1990, but that year something changed. That year, the U.S. Supreme court held that states could levy sales taxes on the sale of religious literature by non-profit corporations. The case was Swaggart v. California--the state of California imposed sales tax on protestant preacher Jimmy Swaggart's sales of religious literature. He appealed it all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court...and lost. See http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?court=US&vol=493&invol=378 Interestingly, the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society filed an amicus curiae brief with the Court in favor of Swaggart's position. A copy of the Society's brief is here: http://ia331405.us.archive.org/0/items/WatchtowerAmicusCuriaeJimmySwaggart/1989_Amicus_Curiae_Watchtower_Swaggart.pdf After the Court shot down Swaggart, the Society quickly switched to the "donation arrangement" in order to avoid paying taxes. Pretty slick, huh?

If Jesus wasn't Divine then shouldn't Jehovah's Witnesses still be under The Mosaic Laws and Ten Commandments of Jehovah in The Old Testament and not the laws of Jesus in The New Testament?

Your answer - One must exercise faith and trust in Jesus Christ alone to be saved . Romans 10:13 " For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Acts 10:36 " The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all." 1Corinthians 2:7 "But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory." Isaiah 43:11 " I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour." 1Timothy 2:3 " For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;" 2Peter 1:11 "For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ." Jesus - 2424. Ihsouv Iesous, ee-ay-sooce' of Hebrew origin (3091); Jesus (i.e. Jehoshua), the name of our Lord --Jesus

Why do you believe the Great Multitude will get an earthly resurrection when Rev. 7 says they are in the Naos and not the heiron? Edit: Nice dodge Edit: Thanks Tim for taking time to answer. However I was hoping you would answer and not quote other people. The Watch Tower originally taught that there were two classes of Christians who get a spirit reward. The Little Flock (144K, the Bride of Christ) and the Great Company (Multitude). As we see in Rev. 7 they are before the throne and not in the throne and they serve those who are in the throne. We see this in antitype in the Levites. You have the priests who are Levites and the great multitude of other Levites who are not priests, but they serve in the Tabernacle/Temple. Both classes have no inheritance in the Land. Rev. 19 says this multitude is invited to the wedding supper (not the wedding). They are also pictured by the Foolish virgins, who miss out and must go to the market and basically wash their robes to get the oil to finish their course. Many run for the one crown, but only one gets the victory. So while there may be 1000 running for one crown, God knows that only one of that number will be worthy of the divine nature. So the Great Multitude are in the Naos, just not in the throne.

May I answer FinalTrump when he/she asks, "Why do you believe the Great Multitude will get an earthly resurrection when Rev. 7 says they are in the Naos and not the heiron?" Thayer's Greek Lexicon states that [in the context that it is used in Revelation 7:15], 'Naos', metaphorically speaking, represents "the spiritual temple consisting of the saints of all ages joined together by and in Christ." The NAS New Testament Greek Lexicon adds the following literal definition of 'Naos': "used of the temple at Jerusalem, but only of the sacred edifice (or sanctuary) itself, consisting of the Holy place and the Holy of Holies." Strong's concordance defines 'heiron' as: "a temple, either the whole building, or specifically the outer courts, open to worshippers." You say that the "Great Multitude" are "in the Naos", so I take it that you see them as standing in the inner part of the temple, [where, of course, the saints should be, joined with Christ]. So your question, I presume, is why does it appear that the Great Multitude is standing in the inner part of the spiritual temple, reserved for the heavenly priestly class, and not in the courtyard [the heiron]? The August 15, 1980 Watchtower, distributed globally by Jehovah's Witness, included this information: "The “great crowd” may be said to be in the “temple,” or na·os′, of God and yet not be in heaven as spirit creatures with the 144,000 spiritual Israelites who make up the “little flock” of God. (Rev. 7:1-9, 15; Luke 12:32) Na·os′ may also have a limited sense, for Jesus Christ addressed the first-century congregation in Philadelphia, Asia Minor, and said: “As for the one who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple [na·os′] of my God; he will be secure, and will go out no more; and I will write my God’s Name on him, and he will be a citizen in the city of my God—the New Jerusalem, coming down from heaven from my God; and he will have my new Name inscribed upon him.”—Rev. 3:12, The Living Bible. Such an inscription upon the members of the “great crowd” is not even mentioned in Revelation 7:9-17, neither are they said to be made ‘pillars’ in God’s temple. Those who are made symbolic ‘pillars’ are the 144,000 spiritual Israelites of 12 tribes. Unlike the numberless “great crowd,” this numbered group of spiritual Israelites have the name of Jesus and the name of his Father written upon them. They also have written upon them the name of the city of God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from God. Just as Mount Zion was associated with ancient Jerusalem, so a spiritual Mount Zion is associated with this New Jerusalem that is heavenly. In agreement with this, the apostle John had a second vision of the 144,000 spiritual Israelites, and in making a record of this he wrote: “Look! the Lamb [Jesus Christ] standing upon the Mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand having his name and the name of his Father written on their foreheads. . . . And they are singing as if a new song before the throne . . . and no one was able to master that song but the hundred and forty-four thousand, who have been bought from the earth. . . . These were bought from among mankind as firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.”—Rev. 14:1-5. Do those descriptive details fit also the international “great crowd” of Revelation 7:9-17? No, for nowhere are they said to stand upon the heavenly Mount Zion. (Heb. 12:22) They are excluded from the original singers of the “new song.” They are not said to be “bought from the earth,” “bought from among mankind as firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.” Consequently, those of the “great crowd” expect to remain on earth forever and to share in bringing it to a Paradise state. They do not belong to the company of 144,000 “bought” ones that began to be formed on the day of Pentecost of 33 C.E." And if the "Great Multitude" were to end up in heaven, what would be the point of so many scriptures that align with what it says at Psalms 37:29: "The righteous themselves will possess the earth, And they will reside forever upon it"? That was God's original purpose for humankind [Genesis 1:27,28; 2:17] and Isaiah 55:11 shows that that is God's unchangeable purpose for the earth. [Isaiah 65:17-25; Psalms 37:11; Matthew 6:10; 2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:3,4]

Brent Originally Answered: How can you be a Jehovah's Witness if you weren't there to witness Christ?
it is also a witness that The Almighty God, whose name is Jehovah is the only true God He alone deserves worship. And that his ways of doing things is the best way, His instructions produce the most glorious and optimal results. The best life imaginable and best life yet to experience is a direct result of doing as he says. Everything he does is righteous and just, wise and loving. So after observing, exploring, examining, studying, testing and discovering for oneself, one could soundly give witness that his way is the right way and that his way is the best way. In the words of the godly man Job, Jehovah's Witnesses also draw the conclusion and give this witness"I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. Job 42:5 NLT Through the pages of the Bible, Jehovah has revealed more of himself than was known even to Job. We have a clearer view of the depth of God’s love, knowing that he “loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ.” (John 3:16) Through Bible prophecies, we have an outline of God’s activities—clear to the end of the Millennium! (Revelation, chapters 18-22) We have the record of God’s dealings with the Christian congregation: his bringing in of Gentiles, his appointing of a “faithful and discreet slave” to nourish his people, his calling forth “a great crowd” with hope of living forever in Paradise on earth. (Matthew 24:45; Revelation 7:9, 14-17; Ephesians 3:3-6) After peering into the deep things of God and contemplating his marvelous works in our behalf, we cannot help but to give witness: “O the depth of God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge!”—Romans 11:33. His rulership is superior and wonderful.
