In 1950 when the “New World Translation of the Christian Greek Scriptures” was first printed,it has been accepted,because of the rendering used,that the “wrestling” Paul speaks about within Ephesians 6:12 is from satan and the demons through his world powers etc, who are backed by “wicked spirit forces” which are satan and the demons. That these are the enemy we all face and have a wrestling with,because the “wicked spirit forces” back the world which is against those who love Jah. This is the claim by the Governing Body because of the rendering of the New World Translation Bible in Ephesians 6:12.
Then in 1985,another Bible was printed under the authority of the Governing Body that would show the truthfulness of the New World Translation and IF its an accurate translation. “The Kingdom Interlinear of the Greek Scriptures” would reveal if “Jehovah's Witnesses” really do have a wrestling with satan and his “wicked spirit forces in Heavenly places” through his world backed by “wicked spirit forces”.
Is this true? This is what this blog will reveal. With copies of Ephesians 6:12 and other scriptures from the “The Kingdom Interlinear of the Greek Scriptures”,it will be proved that Anointed and lovers of Jah do NOT have a wrestling with “wicked spirit forces” who use satans world to wrestle with lovers of Jah. The wrestling Anointed like Paul had back then,is the same as now.
Faithful Anointed have a spiritual wrestling with fellow UNfaithful Anointed. This is what will be proved.
Please be open minded about this. Look at the copies of the “The Kingdom Interlinear of the Greek Scriptures” in which the Governing Body admit what the Greek is really saying. If you think the copies of “The Kingdom Interlinear of the Greek Scriptures”on this blog are fake,then get a copy for yourself. Find a copy,borrow one. Prove it for yourself !
Its very important to find out who we are spiritually wrestling and fighting against. The original Greek within Ephesians 6:12 identifies who are our true spiritual enemies. They have been hiding since at least A.D.1950 because of the way the New World Translation is rendered.
We have a wrestling,against who?
New World Translation rendering.
Ephesians 6: 11 “Put on the complete suit of armour from God that YOU may be able to stand firm against the machinations(crafty acts) of the Devil; 12 because we have a wrestling,not against blood and flesh, but against the governments,against the authorities,against the world rulers of this darkness, against the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places.”
Ephesians 6:12 From an interlinear,but backed by the “The Kingdom Interlinear of the Greek Scriptures”. REF
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
Lets start with the most obvious difference between the New World Translation bible and the Kingdom interlinear.
This is how the original Greek renders part of the verse:
Kingdom Interlinear Bible REF
“the spiritual (G4151)forces of wickedness in the heavenly places”
This is how the New World Translation renders it:
“Wicked spirit (G4152)forces in the heavenly places”
Greek Word rendered as “spirit” in the New World Translation is “spiritual” as the Greek word 4152 in the “Strong's concordance” shows. REF
Which is correct? The original Greek of course. Above is a copy of the Kingdom Interlinear Bible,in which,the Governing Body admits what the Greek says on the left hand side regarding “spirit forces”. REF
The New World Translation is written so as to teach that the wrestling lovers of Jah have is from satan via the “Wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places” through “the governments,against the authorities,against the world rulers of this darkness” which is supposedly in satan's world.
This is not what Paul is explaining. The original Greek is not using a word to describe wicked spirit beings who rebelled against God around the time of the flood. There is a big difference between “spirits in heavenly places”,where God lives.... and “spiritUAL forces of wickedness in heavenly places”.
“Spiritual forces” are where spiritual truth exists and is taught. “spiritual forces in heavenly places” are where truth about “spiritual” matters are resolved and lies exposed...thus Truth is revealed.
Did Paul have to wrestle against the world in general of his time over spiritual matters? No. His wrestling was with super fine apostates who were unfaithful and were ruling without Him as his fellow Invited. (1Co 4:8) He was contending with them and not non anointed in “satans world”. The anointed of His time were the problem,and the problem he had was in the context of spiritual matters,not wicked spirits within the realm of Heaven where God exists.
The New World Translation is teaching “wicked spirits” are what Paul was wrestling with within satans world. That “wicked spirit forces” were working through “governments,against the authorities,against the world rulers” and these with “wicked spirits”/wicked spirit beings backing, were wrestling with Paul.
But the Greek is explaining its spiritual wickedness in “heavenly places” he wrestled with. Not wicked spirits,but spiritual wickedness. Since the wickedness is not from wicked spirits,but spiritual wickedness,where and what are the “heavenly places” that contain the spiritual wickedness? Invited Anointed Mt Zion,a heavenly place. A Revelation indeed.
Some scriptures to prove this.
Hebrews 12:22 "But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels,”
Notice “heavenly Jerusalem” That is the “heavenly places” mentioned by Paul.
Who are “heavenly Jerusalem”? Paul explains
Philipians 3:20 “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;”
This is why Paul said, “our struggle is not against flesh and blood” in Ephesians 6:12 . Therefore,not against “governments” etc in satan's world who ARE flesh and blood and who's citizenship is not in Heaven.
Paul was talking about those on earth who had “citizenship in heaven” even while on earth. If one has citizenship within Heaven,is their hope and citizenship “flesh and blood” on earth? No. Paul was talking about Anointed of his time when he used the term “not flesh and blood” because their “citizenship is in heaven” even though they were still on earth.
Rom 8:9 "However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him."
Was he talking to those who had already received their Heavenly hope? No. So Paul is again explaining that Anointed,though in the flesh,because of their hope,are not “flesh and blood”/ “are not in the flesh but in the Spirit.”,because of their Anointing via HS.
These expressions,and therefore where the spiritual wickedness resides,can only be within one group of people on the planet:Invited Anointed. Are satan or the demons Anointed and therefore have that hope? No. So satan and demons cannot be the ones Paul is referring to as being the ones who are "not flesh and blood." who use the "world" to wrestle with lovers of Jah.
Those of “heavenly Jerusalem” with “citizenship is in heaven” are also Angels because Angel in Greek means “messenger”. Those of Christs Bride are used by Christ with HS to convey His message of spiritual truth.
Because they are citizens of heaven,they are messengers of that place.
Rev 21:2 “And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.”
“New Jerusalem” are those faithful amongst Anointed and are Christ's Bride. So “New Jerusalem” is Christ's Bride of anointed members.
But Christ said of Invited Anointed:Many are Invited but few are chosen. And its amongst those of the Invited Bride class(not “chosen”) that Paul was wrestling against,those who were ruling as Kings without other Anointed. Those “chosen” from all the “invited” Anointed are those who form the Bride of Christ,who is “new Jerusalem”.
Eph 1:3 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ”.
Paul was explaining that those he was talking to had blessing from the “heavenly places” ,though not in Heaven yet. But their citizenship was there because they belonged there as Anointed with Christ. Even though they were not in Heaven yet,because their citizenship was there,they had blessings from Christ because they belonged there through their citizenship.
The blessings they had came from “ the heavenly places”. The same expression used in Eph 6:12.
Being in the body of Christ,they are One with Him. So even though on earth,these are Invited to heavenly places because the person they were One with,Christ,was in Heaven. Heavenly places is the same phrase and wording as Ephesians 6:12.
Hebrews 6:4 “For in the case of those who have once been enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit”.
Having “tasted of the heavenly gift” means they are not “flesh and blood”,but are from the “heavenly places” since they are One with Christ through being Invited Anointed. What a wonderful gift! To have “tasted of the heavenly gift” because they were “partakers of the Holy Spirit”,yet still on earth.
So an Anointed while on earth,can taste the “heavenly gift” which is their hope,which means they are part of the “heavenly places in Christ” (Eph 1:3)because they are part of His body as His betrothed....and heaven is their hope because they are “citizens” of that place.
Does this not prove where the spiritual forces of wickedness exists? Within the “heavenly places” of Anointed. Not where satan and his demons supposedly are.
The above verses prove where the “heavenly places” are...and its the same Greek word used by Paul in Eph 6:12. In a spiritual way,NOT by spirit persons,there was wickedness going within Anointed as a group,that led to those wicked Invited Anointed not being sealed or “chosen” and thus “wrestled” with ones like Paul.
More Verses about “spiritual wickedness” not “wicked spirits”.
To further prove that the Greek word for “spiritual wickedness” is not “wicked spirits”,we can go to the 20 other places in the Greek Scriptures to see how it is translated. NONE of the other 20 places talk about wicked spirits or the demons. They all talk about “spiritual” matters,not spirit creatures.
Please go to the bottom of this page to see all scriptures using the word which is wrongly translated/rendered “spirit” in the New World Translation. Its should be “spiritual”
Rom 1:11 “For I long to see you so that I may impart some spiritual G4152 gift to you, that you may be established”.
Was Paul saying he wished to give them a demon/wicked spirit as a gift? Yet,its the same word deliberately mistranslated/rendered as “spirit” in Ephesians 6:12 within the New World Translation.
1Peter 2:5 “you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual G4152 house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual G4152 sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”
Was Peter saying that the“spiritual G4152 house for a holy priesthood” was where the demons are also? Of course not! But if we go by the New World Translation and their substituting “spiritual” for “spirit”,then Peter was saying that. Peter is using the same word mistranslated/mis-rendered in the New World Translation as “spirit” in reference to satan and the demons,is seen as false. This is because its talking about “spiritual matters” not “wicked spirits” or the demons. REF
In the reference link above,not one verse where Greek word G4152 is used is talking about satan or the demons. What is this telling us about Ephesians 6:12 where the word is used and who Paul was wrestling with?
Col 3:16 “Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual G4152 songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”
Why is this important to establish? The Governing Body have tampered with how the scriptures portray anything that will expose themselves as UNfaithful members of Heavenly Mt Zion. They have tampered with “birth-pangs” to prove 1914, by using an expression that no other bible translation uses: “pangs of distress”. LINK
And now they want attention drawn away from themselves because they are a major part of the “ spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places” that Paul is describing. Because of this,faithful Anointed in this Time have a “wrestling” with the UNfaithful Anointed within the Governing Body. So its far better to say,satan and the demons are the “wicked spirits” behind the wrestling that Anointed have,when its THEM which is the major force of “spiritual wickedness” Anointed have to contend with.
You doubt this? Have a look at the Kingdom Interlinear Bible photo copy of Ephesians 6:12. REF Why would they falsely render the word “spiritual” as “spirit”,if the very Kingdom Interlinear Bible they print shows the Greek on the left is NOT talking about spirit creatures...satan or the demons? To do so is to deliberately change what the Greek is really saying ! Esp as the Greek is there on the left hand side,which is the Governing Body admitting what the Greek is really saying.
What a violent wrestling faithful Anointed have! The Governing Body have even hidden who are The real enemies of Anointed within the Organisation by tampering with Jahs words in the bible. Imagine saying you Love Gods Word,but change certain words for your own benefits,so that Jah's warning to Anointed about their fellow apostate invited Anointed are hidden from view.
Its not the World or the demons that those who Love Jah have a wrestling with,its with unfaithful Anointed spearheaded by the Governing Body who are “wicked spiritual forces in heavenly places”. Their wickedness will be through spiritual matters as is seen by their changing words within Jah's Holy Bible.
What they teach is a “spiritual force” that Anointed trying to be faithful must wrestle with to overcome based on lies within the NWT.
The Governing Body's “spiritual wickedness” is revealed by their deliberate changing of Gods word as seen in the New World Translation. Why would they do that unless they are spiritually wicked?! The Kingdom Interlinear Bible is proof,by their own admission,that they are “spiritually wicked”.
The Governing Body's tampering with original Greek meanings placed into the New World Translation reveals an important agenda towards Anointed within JWs. Without doubt, Paul under inspiration clearly showed that faithful anointed like himself were wrestling with their fellow unfaithful Invited Anointed.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood (its with those with citezinship in heaven), but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places”
What “world forces of this darkness”? Spiritual darkness... “spiritual forces of wickedness.” (Eph6:12)And if those spiritual forces then can set themselves up as “rulers”, “powers” and “world forces” as the Governing Body has done,then they can try to enforce their “spiritual wickedness” on faithful Anointed ones like Paul. Paul was wrestling with “spiritual wickedness” from fellow Anointed. Was the political system of Paul's day a “spiritual force” that he had to wrestle with? Not like the super fine Apostles that began ruling without him!
1Co 4:8 “You are already filled, you have already become rich, you have become kings without us; and indeed, I wish that you had become kings so that we also might reign with you.” Hosea 8:4
When would Paul start to rule with all other faithful Anointed? During Gods Kingdom. Yet back then,some anointed had set themselves up prematurely without other Anointed. How would they set themselves up as Kings...and were ruling?
Kings are those who are “rulers”, “powers” and “world forces” within the domain of where they are “Kings”...otherwise,how are they “Kings”? It was these unfaithful Anointed self appointed “Kings” Paul was talking about in Ephesians 6:12. If they had set themselves up illegally as Kings in a spiritual sense,then would they like someone like Paul exposing them? How did they get their Kingship? Through being Anointed,through being a spiritual force.
As Anointed,they could not rule as Kings within and through the political world of satan. The Greek world power would not allow that! But they were being Kings and ruling in a spiritual sense because of being Anointed like Paul. They were reigning without Paul as Kings. Thus in a spiritual sense,they were “rulers”, “powers” and “world forces” in every place where there were Anointed.
“the SPIRITUAL forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
Paul summarises all the things just mentioned that anointed wrestle with as existing within “the heavenly places”. So whatever the powers he struggled against,they were within “the heavenly places” Mt Zion members.
The above 5 scriptures back this.Hebrews 6:4,Ephesians 1:3,Rev 21:2,Philipians 3:20,Hebrews 12:22.
Where is the wickedness? Amongst “spiritUAL forces of wickedness in the heavenly places” Where are spiritual matters contained and claimed to be taught? Primarily amongst Anointed who are Invited to a “heavenly place”,Mt Zion,since they are supposed to be used by Christ to dispense spiritual food.
Paul was making the point that amongst these Anointed,there would be “spiritual forces of wickedness” powers of darkness and lies that Anointed have a wrestling against.
“Governments,against the authorities,against the world rulers of this darkness,”
So we have proved that the Greek word Paul used to say “spiritual” has been changed to “spirit” within the New World Translation. That an anointed has a wrestling with fellow unfaithful Anointed who are members of “heavenly places”. That it was not against “flesh and blood” as Ephesians 6:12 says,but against those on earth who had “citizenship in heaven” even while on earth, thus not “flesh and blood”.
Rom 8:9 "However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him." Which is why Paul said our fight is not against flesh and blood.
The next very obvious question is,how can these be ““rulers”, “powers” and “world forces” if they are within the “spiritual” sphere of Anointed?
The key is to realise these are “Spiritual Forces” are within the realm of things pertaining to spiritual matters,Mt Zion members referred to by Paul as “Kings”.
Lets look at the Greek meanings,and it will be obvious who Paul is talking about.
Ephesians 6:12“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers... Some translations say “governments”. But the Greek root word is “Rulers”.
Greek word 746
chief in various applications,
from g757. first (in political rank or power):-reign (rule) over.”
So who in spiritual matters is “first” within spritual matters amongst all Anointed,claiming to be able to give the truth in “spiritual matters” to all within "jehovah's witnesses"...and above all other Anointed? The Governing Body.
They claim to be “first” and the “chief” amongst Anointed to dispense spiritual food. This is backed by where they all live and operate from: “bethel HQ”. If they were asked to leave,would they? No. Who could make them leave? No-one...at this point in time. Their claim to be there is because they are “chief” and “first” amongst all anointed in spiritual matters and have a right to be there.
So they are there as “Kings” in their rightful place...according to them. Paul said there were Anointed of his time ruling without him and other Anointed. The Governing Body are doing the same today. They are in a position of rulership without other Anointed,because they claim to be “first” and chief” amongst all Anointed in spiritual matters.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers. The NWT says “authorities” instead of powers,but the Greek root word is “Powers”.
“against the powers”
Greek word G1849
(in the sense of ability)
(because of) “delegated influence”(have)“authority,jurisdiction,liberty,power,right,strength.”
So the “power” Paul was refering to,was not just brute force “power”. They have spiritual “ability” because of the claim to have been “delegated”. If one is delegated,within the context of spiritual matters,esp if you can claim God is the One who has delegated you with certain “abilities” via HS,then you do have “authority,jurisdiction,liberty,power,right,strength.” when it comes to spiritual matters.
Who does this sound like in the modern era who say they are “delegated” by God with spiritual “ability” from HS in spiritual matters? Who has “authority,jurisdiction,liberty,power,right,strength.” because in the sphere of “spiritual matters” they are Governing an Organisation supposedly for the sake of “spiritual matters” and are part of the “heavenly Places” of Anointed?
Who say they are in their position because God “delegated” them into this position...and thus do rightfully have “authority,jurisdiction,liberty,power,right,strength.” in “spiritual matters”?
Who is making this claim,that within the whole world in spiritual matters,they have delegated ability,thus have proper spiritual “delegated influence”? The Governing Body.
What a “wrestling” this is for Anointed who are trying to expose their lying claim of being “delegated” by God into their positions because of “abilities” given by HS to feed the Organisation in regards to “spiritual matters”.
And if that self claimed “delegation” is proved wrong by the HS they claim gives them their “ability”,what then? The Governing Body exercise their “authority,jurisdiction,liberty,power,right,strength.” and have Anointed wrestling with them,DFed.
This IS happening right now around the World to anyone who proves the Governing Body's claims wrong from scripture.
The Governing Body are indeed a “power” to be reckoned with in “spiritual matters”? Not because they can back their Lies with scripture,but they back it with brute force and have the one challenging them silenced within the sphere where they claim to be there by Gods command and “delegation”.
But this is all because the Governing Body claim to have “Ability” from HS,because they have “delegated influence” from God. Which is the Greek meaning of the word “power” from Ephesians 6:12.
Remember,these meanings of the Greek have to apply within the “Heavenly places” of Anointed,not satan's world that he offered Christ. So that the end result is,that they are “spiritual forces of wickedness”
Those in Pauls time who were Anointed and spiritual force of wickedness,had also set themselves up as “Kings” without other Anointed. Back then in Paul's time,there was no “apostate Christendom” and today we have seen that there is no such thing as “apostate Christendom” to bring its influence upon Anointed. See here for proof. (link)
The heavenly places is the same place as Revelations “war in heaven” the war amongst anointed. Those of Anointed Angel messengers Christ and those Anointed who have become satans Angels because they teach his messages of lies and thus are “spiritual forces of wickedness”.
“Spiritual forces” are not found in the world of satan. Paul is saying spiritual forces within heavenly places were the ones causing darkness...and that darkness is coming from UNfaithful Anointed.
Note for the Kingdom Interlinear Bible copy/picture of Ephesians 6:12. “spiritual(things)”.Notice in the left hand side where the Greek is shown,the Greek manuscript used by the Governing Body,goes an extra step in explaining that “spiritual” is NOT talking about wicked “spirits” by putting (things) after “spiritual” to make sure its clear that its “spiritual matters” the Greek word is explaining. If it was about wicked spirits,what would be in the brackets would be (beings),thus “spiritual (beings)”...or to be more clear: “spirit beings” Instead,they have made it clear Paul was talking about “spiritual (things)”. Plus the word used in the left hand side is spiritual,NOT spirit.
So even though the manuscript supplier went to great care to explain the Greek word G4152,and the Governing Body have included the Greek on the left because its accurate,the Governing Body still refuse to publish this within the New World Translation and the so-called “revised version”. The Governing Body have had 30 years to include what the Greek is really explaining and have known this since 1950.
The Governing Body refuse to print what they admit is the true Greek meaning!
Those who supplied the manuscript for the Kingdom Interlinear Bible knew the Greek word is referring to spiritual matters...and the Governing Body of the time is admitting this is the correct Greek meaning and understanding by including it in the Interlinear Bible they printed.
Why they dont print the correct meaning is obvious by what Paul is explaining...THEY are part of the “wicked spiritual forces”. This is seen by their tampering with true Greek meanings and not publishing the correct Greek meanings within the New World Translation !
Proof they have deliberately gone against Jah's inspired words through Paul is seen by their own admission of what the original Greek says within the Kingdom Interlinear Bible.
If you print the original Greek,you are admitting that is what was said under inspiration of HS !
Why this is serious,is that it hides WHO Anointed primarily have a “wrestling” with: Their fellow UNfaithful Anointed. This is especially important because within the organisation of JWs is the greatest threat Anointed face.
This threat is from those who have deliberately changed the Bibles original meanings for their own ends:To be self appointed “Kings” and to rule without fellow Anointed.
Why is the word “Age” not in the Kingdom Interlinear Bible in Ephesians 6:12 ?
Now to figure(...) in regards to “Age” not being in the Kingdom Interlinear Bible in Ephesians 6:12. The word “Age” IS in the other Greek Interlinear bought from the “kingdom hall”. There we see that the word “Age” is used,thus cementing the “governments,against the authorities,against the world rulers of this darkness” are within the “messianic Age” of Christ's Kingdom. What Paul is talking about is NOT within satan's world,but within the Messianic Age of Christ's Kingdom of Anointed. This is also backed when Paul was referring to Anointed in his time, who had set themselves up as “Kings” without their fellow Invited Anointed. To know these are within the “Age” of ANOINTED,is to see where the real “wrestling” we have against “wicked spiritual forces” is coming from.
So why is the word “Age” not there in the Kingdom Interlinear Bible,when it is in the other TWO Interlinears? If you go to the link just below,this is an online interlinear,which also leaves out the word “Age” in its English rendering,but it IS included in the Greek rendering.
The above link has a box called “Textus receptus”. Go to the middle line(as above),the last word on the right(as above). Put your mouse cursor on that. There it shows that the Greek word for Age “165” is there in the original Greek. When you put the cursor on it,it will say “world”,but if you look at the Greek word “165” in the Strongs dictionary its root meaning is Age. REF Why they have left it out in the English rendering is unclear since they admit its in the Original Greek text,the same as the Kingdom Interlinear Bible has left it out. BUT it is there as figure REF shows and it should be there because the Original Greek word was spoken by Paul.
So is it right to say “Age” is within that verse? Yes,the above link with the Greek word included in the Greek text,is correct. This is reflected in the other interlinear REF including the word in both the Greek and English. This is important. It proves that “Age” was a word used by Paul in the context of who the “wicked spiritUAL forces” were,thus showing who he and other faithful Anointed were wrestling against: UNfaithful Anointed within the Messianic Age of Christ's Kingdom. The 2 verses in Matthew 13:41,49 are also talking about the same thing. The Angel messengers doing the same thing within the “Messianic Age” and within “Christ's Kingdom”.
This proves that the “spiritual forces of wickedness” is within the “Messianic Age” of Christ's Kingdom:Members of Invited Anointed.
The Messianic Age is the same thing as Christ's Kingdom.
One final cementing piece of evidence that the “spiritual forces of wickedness” are within anointed,is what Christ Himself said in Matthew 13:41,49. That He would remove all “stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness,” from within His kingdom. The Messianic Age is the same thing as Christ's Kingdom. The context of Matthew 13 proves this.
Verses 40 and 41 are talking about what happens within the Messianic Age or period which is Christ's Kingdom. The Messianic Period and thus “Age” is the “period” or duration of Time that Christ's Kingdom exists. Christ's kingdom has an end.
V40/“So just as the weeds are gathered up and burned with fire, so shall it be at the end of the age.
V41/“The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness”
Mat 13:49“So it will be at the end of the age; the angels will come forth and take out the wicked from among the righteous”
Notice how verses 41 and 49 are interchangeable? This is because one common event happens within both verses,yet there are 2 different terms describing the same thing: The Messianic “Age” and “Christ's Kingdom”.
Its a continuation of the same thought in all verses of Matthew 13. Since the Greek bears out that “Age” is a “Messianic period”,its thus referring to the period of time Christ's Kingdom exists to accomplish its purpose of “the weeds are gathered up and burned with fire” and “they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks”. Matthew 13:41,49.
Both these descriptions are the same event,within the same sphere:The “Messianic Age” of “Christ's Kingdom”.
These two verses are talking about the same event,but in different ways,but accomplishing the same thing. The weeds are what the Angels remove from within HIS Kingdom because they are “causing stumbling “ and are “doing lawlessness”. This is why they are called weeds and why they are “causing stumbling” because they are “lawless” AND are members of Christ's Kingdom of Anointed..which is WHY they must be removed.
Mat 13:49 “So it will be at the end of the age; the angels will come forth and take out the wicked from among the righteous,”
Mat 13:41 “The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness”
Christ in verses 41 and 49 says Angel messengers will be used to carry out the same thing. BUT He says “ out of His kingdom” and “at the end of the age”. Both verses mention Angels being used to show it happens within “the Age” and that Age or “period” is in V41 the same thing,the duration of Christ's Kingdom.
Verse 39 says “the Age” which according to the Greek is the “messianic period”. REF A period of time is needed for these events to happen,like a harvest. A harvest takes time for things to happen within it.
What has this to with Ephesians 6:12? Paul also under inspiration uses the word “Age” which refers to Christ's Kingdom or Messianic Age,which ONLY consists of Anointed. Matthew 13:41,49. Both these verses in the same chapter when Christ spoke about HIS Kingdom,He also used the word “Age” which refers to the same thing,His Kingdom. So Paul was saying His wrestling was with fellow members of the Messianic Age of Christ's kingdom. REF See how the Interlinear from the “kingdom hall” renders Ephesians 6:12? It uses the word “Age” within Ephesians 6:12.
If Anointed are wrestling with unfaithful Anointed who are the “stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness”,then the UNfaithful Anointed are those who are the“stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness”. Christ has to remove these “weeds” from within His Kingdom. Esp since they are wrestling against Anointed trying to be faithful because they are “spiritual forces of wickedness” within the Messianic Age of Christ's Kingdom.
The wrestling Paul spoke about happens within The Messianic Age of Christ's kingdom,the same place where there are “those who commit lawlessness”. Since Christ's kingdom is only Anointed,the wrestling Paul had,was with fellow UNfaithful Anointed within that Kingdom or messianic Age,those who Christ was going to remove.
Matthew 13:41 “The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness,”
Mat 13:49 “So it will be at the end of the AGE; the angels will come forth and (separate)take out the wicked from among the righteous,”
How will Christ “gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness,? Take(separate) out the wicked from among the righteous,”,leaving behind the righteous. He does this using His Angel Messengers.
Mat 13:40.Christ's Kingdom has an end: “so shall it be at the end of the (messianic) Age. G165.”
Jesus wants only righteous Anointed left. He removes the wicked out “from among” the righteous. From within His Kingdom,the Messianic Age,there are Anointed both “wicked from among the righteous,”
If all are anointed within His Kingdom,it would seem all SHOULD be righteous,but Jesus is showing otherwise.
Look at the Lies most Anointed within JWs believe. 1914 is prime example.(LINK) Another is what we are looking at within this blog. The real wrestling Anointed have is against the “wicked spiritual forces” within the Governing Body who have deliberately changed Jah's words within the New World Translation,to hide who they are are:The primary source of the “spiritual wickedness” that Anointed have to wrestle with.
Are not Lies “stumbling blocks”,causing those who believe them to stumble on their spiritual path...to not know the real “truth”? "jehovah's witnesses" do not know who their real enemies are because its been hidden within the New World Translation.
You may think this has been laboured a little by going into such depth. The reasons are important. The New World Translation has been saying since 1950 that "jehovah's witnesses" have been wrestling against satan and the demons through satans world as the means to hinder and “wrestle” with lovers of Jah. The Governing Body have been saying for 64 years,we are wrestling against the world and its ruler,satan, through satan's world. By the evidence shown,its clear our true wrestling is against the Governing Body who have tampered with the original Greek,and they do this because they are the primary source of the “spiritual wickedness in the Heavenly places”. To establish this beyond doubt needed all the above proof.
Considering who our real “spiritual”enemy are,no wonder Paul under inspiration went on to say:Eph 6:13 “Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.” Some translations say “Because of this,we need to put on the complete suit of spiritual armour from God”! Ephesians 6:13. Why did Paul say “Because of this”? Because our real spiritual enemies are from within Anointed themselves,we need to put on spiritual armour from God. With such well hidden and powerful enemies,we need ARMOUR to win the “spiritual” battle we have. Especially is this true for Anointed trying to wake up and be faithful to Truth coming from Christ Himself. Matthew 25
Its a “crafty act” of satan (Ephesians 6:11) to have such a spiritual enemy so well hidden for 65 years through the NWT “bible”. But all things hidden spiritually will be exposed,even if its hidden using a bible printed by the Governing Body as a means to deceive "jehovah's witnesses".
Eph 5:13 “But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light.”
To have a lie exposed,is to be enlightened,to have light about Lies..
1Co 4:5 “Therefore do not go on passing judgement before the time, but wait until the Lord comes who will both bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of men’s hearts; and then each man’s praise will come to him from God.”
The Governing Body think they can hide who they are,even printing their own “bible” to do it. But their offended betrothed Christ has other plans:To expose them as workers of “spiritual wickedness”. Matt 7:23. Matt 25:12 Rev 22:15. The Kingdom Interlinear Bible is a primary weapon that has exposed them because within it,is proof of them admitting what the Original Greek is really saying.
The real Greek meaning (thus the real truth) revealed in The Kingdom Interlinear Bible is not printed within the New World Translation. LINK
Malachi 2:7 “For the lips of a priest ought to preserve knowledge, because he is the messenger of the Lord Almighty and people seek instruction from his mouth.”
Notice it says a Priest is a messenger? This is also the Greek meaning of “Angel”..messenger.
Has the Governing Body who are Invited Priests “preserved knowledge” by their deliberate changing of words in the Bible which hides them and what they are doing? Can they be a true and faithful messenger if they change the Bibles original meaning which alters Jahs message? Those who deliberately change Jahs original meanings are not His messengers despite their claims because they are now UNfaithful Priests.
Some other verses in the Greek Scriptures that use the same Greek Word “spiritual” that is used in Ephesians 6:12.
1Co 3:1 “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual G4152 men, but as to men of flesh, as to infants in Christ.”
1Co 10:3 “and all ate the same spiritual G4152 food;”
1Co 10:4 “and all drank the same spiritual G4152 drink, for they were drinking from a spiritual G4152 rock which followed them; and the rock was Christ.”
Eph 1:3 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual G4152 blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,”
Col 1:9 “For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual G4152 wisdom and understanding,”
In the above 5 verses,Paul in using the word he used,was talking to mainly Anointed about spiritual matters. Things to watch for that might damage them spiritually. Also what would build them up spiritually. So the context of many verses where the Greek word 4152 is used,is showing WHERE the word is to be understood as applying. Within Anointed regarding spiritual matters.
So where was the spiritual danger coming from? Wicked Anointed who had set themselves up as Kings... and thus were “rulers”, “powers” and “world forces” just like today with the Governing Body.
Mat 13:49 “So it will be at the end of the age”. The Word “end” also means consummation:the point at which something is complete or finalised. Some translations say “So it will be at the consumation of the age”.
So the Messianic Age of Christ's Kingdom does not just “end”. It has a consummation,in which all things mentioned in Matt 13 are completed. The Harvest is the consummation of the Age of Christ's Kingdom,as its the final thing that happens after all the events leading up to it mentioned in Matthew 13...just like a real harvest. The weeds are taken out of the midst of the righteous. Which means the righteous are left remaining. Matt 13:41
2 Corinthians 10:3 "For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does" V5 "We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ."
If Paul says he is waging war NOT as the world does,this means he is NOT waging war with any part of the World that satan offered to Christ. Paul thus describes the spiritual wrestling/war and what that involves,that its not like how the world wages war. If the wrestling was with satan through his world as the Governing Body teaches,then Paul would not have just said “we do not wage war as the world does". How does the world “wage war”? Through the political system,through politicians and through armies of soldiers. Did Paul wage war with satans system in this manner? No!
So how is the war waged? “demolishing (spiritual) arguments and every (spiritual) pretension that sets itself up against the (spiritual) knowledge of God”. How could someone like Paul wage a war with satans world by using the things he mentions in V5 ? "We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ."
“we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ” All the weapons needed by Ones like Paul to “demolish arguments and every pretension” in their spiritual War comes from Christ,so the War can be won.
The Armies of Rome do not use such things in War,as Paul says. Why would the Armies of Rome care about what Christ thought? And if satan and the demons were using “the system of things” of satan's world against lovers of Jah,then these would be the only way War against Ones like Paul could happen. It didnt happen like this against Paul. He did not wrestle with the politicians of the World,He did not fight Roman soldiers. His battle was a spiritual one as it clearly seen by the Greek word for spiritual being used within Ephesians 6:12. And this proves the War and wrestling Paul speaks about is in the realm of spiritual matters.
Where was this happening? Within Anointed as a group,which includes those who had set themselves as “Kings” without the other Anointed of Paul's time,UNfaithful Anointed. Its within Anointed as a group that the same spiritual wrestling is taking place.
