Chapter 23- Zephaniah

Here is a link to the audio and written chapter 23, http://jehovah-is-king.com/zephaniah/.

I received 3 substack notifications this morning from people reporting on COVID, who describe the vaccine being given to children as sacrifices to Moloch. Apparently Malcam is another name for Moloch. The substack authors are not JW’s but they recognize that killing children with the vaccines is the same as offering a human sacrifice to the demons. If you feel anger about the deception among Jehovah’s people, reading Zephaniah is calming because it reminds us that Jehovah sees it too. While there isn’t much we can do about the distressing things we are witnessing, Jehovah through his son and through the chosen ones will resolve it. It cannot come too soon. Notice in Zephaniah 1:6, quoted below speaks of those who do not seek Jehovah or inquire of him as turning away from following Jehovah. Seeking Jehovah and inquiring of Jehovah implies waiting for his direction and changing direction when it’s indicated.

Here is a quote from the beginning of Chapter 23:

The expressions “the day of Jehovah” and “the day of Jehovah’s anger” were used by the prophets Isaiah, Ezekiel, Joel, Obadiah, Amos, Malachi, as well as the apostles. Those terms appear seven times in the brief prophecy of Zephaniah alone. Through Zephaniah, Jehovah expresses his determination to annihilate faithless evildoers and false worshippers from among his people—particularly their occultist priests of Baal. The prophecy also denounces the surrounding nations—including Assyria.

As with other prophecies, though, it is evident that God intended the prophecy of Zephaniah to apply far beyond the affairs of Judah and the ancient world. For example, Zephaniah 1:18 indicates that Jehovah’s denunciation is global— total. That verse reads: “Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to save them in the day of Jehovah’s fury; for by the fire of his zeal the whole earth will be consumed, because he will make an extermination, indeed a terrible one, of all the inhabitants of the earth.”

In keeping with the established principle that judgment begins with the house of God, Zephaniah 1:4-6 relates the central feature of the day of Jehovah: “I will stretch out my hand against Judah and against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and I will wipe out from this place every vestige of Baal, the name of the foreign-god priests along with the priests, and those who bow down on the rooftops to the army of the heavens, and those who bow down and pledge loyalty to Jehovah while pledging loyalty to Malcam; and those who turn away from following Jehovah and who do not seek Jehovah or inquire of him.”

Concerning COVID and describing the vaccine given to children as sacrifices to Moloch, I’ve thought this from the beginning. I also noticed how the WT/ GB almost glorified everything in connection with COVID.To me it almost seemed like a god…so in order to appease it they followed the same narrative as the UN, wore masks, 6 feet social distancing and to top it all off pushed for everyone to get vaccinated.

As I’ve stated before that their message went from ‘preaching’ the “good news of the kingdom“ to the ‘good news about the vaccine’
And this is not the form of worship that I dedicated my life to.

In the bible, the third chapter of Zephaniah begins by describing ”Jerusalem” as rebellious, polluted and oppressive. Now we know that this applies to anointed ones, spiritual Israel. And, I think we are all amazed that the ORG refuses to ever admit their error and repent. In fact, at the beginning of the video updates in 2021 I recall exclaiming to Medi-Tator, “They are going to HAVE TO apologize and walk that back!” But now I know that will never happen.

Zephaniah makes it clear that refusing to accept discipline is not only a sin against Jehovah but this is one of the many reasons that he will call them into judgment. Don’t expect them all to accept discipline. The below scriptures also say that Jerusalem has not drawn near to her God but we know that “she” is instead involved with the UN and probably received money for promoting the vaccines. We know from their own admissions that they accepted government money from Norway and so why would it be a stretch for them to accept money from the UN or WHO or GAVI or whoever they launder it through?

Zephaniah 3:1-7: “Woe to the rebellious, the polluted, the oppressive city! She has obeyed no voice; she has accepted no discipline. In Jehovah she has not trusted; she has not drawn near to her God. Her princes within her are roaring lions. Her judges are wolves in the night; They do not leave even a bone to gnaw until morning. Her prophets are insolent, treacherous men. Her priests defile what is holy; They do violence to the law. Jehovah is righteous in her midst; he does no wrong. Morning by morning he makes known his judgments, As unfailing as the daylight. But the unrighteous one knows no shame. “I destroyed nations; their corner towers were left desolate. I devastated their streets, so that no one was passing through.Their cities were left in ruins, without a man, without an inhabitant. I said, ‘Surely you will fear me and accept discipline,’ So that her dwelling place might not be destroyed—I must call her to account for all these things. But they were all the more eager to act corruptly.

I’m pretty sure they received money to promote the vaccines. Not too long after the vaccines were rolled out there was an article on a website stating that all religious institutions were receiving $100 dollars per congregant that took the jab. These men are definitely “insolent, treacherous men…defiling what is holy…” Corrupt men leading the flock.
“Then he also told them an illustration: “A blind man cannot guide a blind man, can he? Both will fall into a pit, will they not?” ( Luke 6:39 )


I pray that the friends will wake up from their ‘blindness‘ before it’s too late.

A beautiful article. It brings to mind the memory of the Pure Language Convention. There are some scriptures that always “nagged” at my mind because they didn’t seem to fit exactly but now they do. I also now appreciate the part of Revelation 3:19 that represents Jesus’ encouragement/warning to the Ladodicean congregation on what they need to do:

Revelation 3:19: “All those for whom I have affection, I reprove and discipline. So be zealous and repent.”

The 23rd Chapter explains who Balaam was and how the accounts about Balaam are warnings to us today as Jesus recounted in his counsel to the anointed at Revelation 2:14-16: “Nevertheless, I have a few things against you, that you have there those adhering to the teaching of Baʹlaam, who taught Baʹlak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit sexual immorality. In the same way, you also have those adhering to the teaching of the sect of Nic·o·laʹus. So repent. If you do not, I am coming to you quickly, and I will war against them with the long sword of my mouth.”

This scriptures tells us that Jesus is ready to war against unfaithful anointed ones. That should give pause to all of us. We should be particularly interested in Jesus’ warnings and commendations recorded in Revelation. Here is a quote from Chapter 23 that ties the teaching of Balaam with the evil slave.

Just as Jesus spoke of those in the Pergamum congregation who were “holding fast the teaching of Balaam,” the Christian writers, Peter and Jude, also warned believers to be on guard against those false teachers who “have rushed into the erroneous course of Balaam for reward.” Such men lurk like “rocks hidden below water”— their treachery concealed from the unsuspecting. The reason they pose such a spiritual danger to Christians is because the Balaam-like agents are trusted elders and leaders who feast together with God’s people. That is apparent by Jude’s further comments, which identify them as “shepherds who feed themselves without fear; waterless clouds carried here and there by the wind; fruitless trees in late autumn, having died twice and having been uprooted; wild waves of the sea that cast up the foam of their own shame; stars with no set course, for which the blackest darkness stands reserved forever”

“Shepherds who feed themselves” are obviously self-serving elders in the congregation, perhaps even posing as one among the anointed faithful slave. Their being likened to “stars with no set course” would seem to suggest that they pose as spiritual guides, but their “guidance” is as unreliable as navigating by following a wandering star in the sky.

Just as Jesus asked the Pharisees how they thought they were going to escape the judgment of Gehenna, the odd description of their “having died twice” must mean that their course of treachery has already brought upon them the judgment of the second death.

Since that very judgment is also reserved for the evil slaves of Christ’s illustrations, “the teachings of Balaam” must ultimately emanate from them.”

Pre-pandemic, we would have applied this scripture to Christendom. The GB's stance on co-vid and the "vaccine" convinced us something was wrong. That's when our eyes really began to be opened. The more we dug, the more we found. "Seek and ye shall find". :)
Now, as we read the "minor" prophets, our minds automatically go in the opposite direction from the WT for fulfillment.
Timing is everything!

who say in their heart,‘Jehovah will not do good, and he will not do bad.’
It shows how accountable one is when being introduced to Jehovah's name. Also shows that Jah's lamps will be searching Watchtower as they are distinct from Christendom due to being in receipt of His Name. Reading the law covenant lately has given me understanding of how near and loving Jehovah is to us that call on His Name. Exodus 22:23,24 should warn those using Jehovah's organisation to take advantage of a widow or fatherless child. "I will unfailingly hear thier cry........ My anger will blaze and I will kill you with the sword!"

Israel presents themselves as annointed by God and America's evangelicals whole heartedly believe it...Netanyahu has bet his political life upon these facts! It's understandable when reading the many times scripture talks of Israel being restored. How blessed we are to understand the literal from the spiritual.

It's most encouraging to see Hollywood A listers finding their only work in advertising coffee and perfume because the cabal is only allowing productions that dumb down the populace.

Could it be that Satan and his demons dwelling in darkness as to Jah's word used Hitler to use the final solution upon the Jews in mis understanding the interpretation of Rev 7:4 The twelve tribes that would be sealed? If Satan was not in darkness to the reality of scripture surely Hitler's organisation was? Who ever was offering scriptural enlightenment to Hitler resemble the same as those offering advice to the global Anglo American cabal? No wonder Dan 11:30b He will go back and hurl denunciations against the Holy Covenant?

I find Robert King’s book extremely enlightening and particularly for understanding the warnings that Jesus gave to the “congregations”. Even though I am not anointed and we know that Jesus warnings are to the anointed ones, I firmly believe we should all take them to heart. Jesus’ words show that he is able to discern the heartfelt motivation of people.

Here is a quote:

Jesus went on to say of Jezebel: “And I gave her time to repent, but she is not willing to repent of her sexual immorality. Look! I am about to throw her into a sickbed, and those committing adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of her deeds. And I will kill her children with deadly plague, so that all the congregations will know that I am the one who searches the innermost thoughts and hearts, and I will give to you individually according to your deeds.”

Take note of the fact that Jesus puts up with “Jezebel” and her lovers all the way up until throwing her and her children “into great tribulation”; obviously, during the great tribulation. It is apparent, then, that an immoral Jezebel-like influence exists in the congregation up until the very moment when Christ removes it—permanently. The point is, though, Jesus does not merely punish the fornicators themselves. Christ rebukes those who “tolerate that woman Jezebel” and the teachings of Balaam. Because both Balaam and Jezebel factions within the congregations promote some form of idolatry among the true disciples of Christ, evidently with some measure of success, could it be that the sort of idolatry they promote is the idolatry of the Watchtower organization itself? Consider a few relevant facts.”

Robert King has an article on the topic of the Jezebel warning and I thought I would quote a bit from that and link to it in case anyone wants to read more material on it.

Quote from the article titled, “You Tolerate That Woman, Jezebel”:

”It is noteworthy that Elijah had all the prophets of Baal slaughtered. Jesus warns that he is going to kill off Jezebel and her demon seed with a deadly plague, throwing her into great tribulation—obviously, during the great tribulation. Jesus said he would war against the idolators in the Pergamum congregation with the long sword of his mouth. The fact that the two witnesses kill their enemies by the fire from their mouths must mean that the chosen who see Christ during the parousia will announce Christ’s judgments and pronounce death to those idolators who boast of having established pure worship.”

This morning when reviewing the 23rd Chapter, this quote really made me feel sad because it is true. I do also feel a sense of comfort because Jehovah knew it would come to this and he will correct it but the correction won’t be easy.

While each congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses has had the authority to have meeting parts specifically devoted to “local needs” of the congregation, rarely do the elders take such opportunities to warn the congregation when a suspected pedophile is in their midst. Unquestionably, the illusion of the organization as a spiritual paradise is more important to maintain than the welfare and safety of children.

Such wicked reasonings have ensnared the congregations into tolerating a form of Baalism. By invoking the name of Jehovah in such a way, telling the victims to “wait on Jehovah” for justice to be done, it is as if the congregations sanctify the sacrifice of the child to the demonic practice of pedophilia. Can it not be said that such men are making sworn oaths to both Jehovah and Molech?

Ironically, the actual scandal of child abuse has not brought nearly the level of reproach on Jehovah’s name as has the deplorable way in which the leadership of Jehovah’s Witnesses has mishandled the problem. Perhaps the greatest irony, though, is that those who have brushed aside abuse victims with empty platitudes such as “wait on Jehovah,” will find themselves under God’s judgment when the wait is over.”

My comment this morning starts with my attempt at humor and so please don’t take this literally. Robert King should rename his book, Jehovah’s Truth Bombs! because his book is a minefield of truths that completely exposes the GB and the ORG. They have sacrificed children on the altar in a symbolic way because of the child abuse but now with the vaccine, they have literally sacrificed children’s lives as well by their strange, illogical, impractical and I will add stupid instructions. Here is a quote from the Chapter but more important the scriptures.

The judgment that Jehovah finally executed against Jerusalem was in keeping with what was stated in the Law at Leviticus 20:3-5: “And as for me, I shall set my face against that man, and I will cut him off from among his people, because he has given some of his offspring to Molech for the purpose of defiling my holy place and to profane my holy name. And if the people of the land should deliberately hide their eyes from that man when he gives any of his offspring to Molech by not putting him to death, then I, for my part, shall certainly fix my face against that man and his family, and I shall indeed cut him and all those who have immoral intercourse along with him in having immoral intercourse with Molech off from among their people.

In the days of Zephaniah the people deliberately ignored the child sacrifice that was taking place in their midst. Their failure to uphold the law moved Almighty Jehovah to act in his own behalf. Jehovah’s sense of justice obligated him to perform a human sacrifice of his own by annihilating the priests of Baal. Zephaniah 1:7-9 reads: “Be silent before the Sovereign Lord Jehovah, for the day of Jehovah is near. Jehovah has prepared a sacrifice; he has sanctified those he invited. On the day of Jehovah’s sacrifice I will call to account the princes, the sons of the king, and all those wearing foreign clothing. I will call to account everyone who climbs onto the platform on that day, those who fill their master’s house with violence and deception.”

The princes and priests of Baal “wearing foreign clothing” must correspond to the Balaam and Jezebel faction that exists in the congregation during the Lord’s day. Be assured that Jehovah will similarly take action against the agents of Baal within the organization of Jehovah’s Witnesses in order to sanctify his own name from being profaned.”
