The Governing Body Claims “Apostolic Succession” – Watchtower 7/15/13
The Governing Body now makes the claim to an “Apostolic succession” similar to their Catholic papal “man of lawlessness” father as they follow in his footsteps as modern “man of lawlessness” “in the temple” Bethel collective Pope revealed prior to Jehovah’s witnesses temple judgment :
“”The channel he used for spiritual feeding was clearly recognizable. After all, the apostles—the original members of the governing body—could provide visible proof of heavenly backing.””
(WT 7/15/13 pg. 18, par. 12)
The apostles were the original members of the “body of the Christ” – NOT a “governing body”. The apostles and the older men were described as the “apostles and the older men”, NOT as a “governing body”. And there is a reason why they were distinctly separated in this way, so as to NOT form another body, that in time would be “set in opposition” by it’s very existence to the one and only divinely approved and anointed and appointed “body of the Christ”.
The “governing body” was super-imposed and reasoned into the Bible, does not actually exist, and is by it’s own self-appointed existence “set in opposition” to the “body of the Christ” as a competitor, thus opposed to Christ, thus opposed to God. That fraud “body” will be destroyed as a blasphemy of fiction, in front of JWs faces in the coming temple judgment cycle of Daniel 8:13-14 after they culminate the “evening” of the “son of destruction” period of that judgment as betrayers, in UN 8th King service as they have been from incept, to have positioned for the 1990 UN NGO (Dan11:30b-31).
2Thessalonians2:8 “lawless one” removal is Zechariah 3:3-5 and Mal3:1-4 parallel temple cleansing for the final cycle, that the modern “man of lawlessness” at Bethel is already replicating in lawless “operation of error” at Bethel.
(2 Thessalonians 2:8) 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.
And thus the Watchtower of July 15, 2013 basically attempts to demolish the original Christian Kingdom and temple foundational cycle truth of Daniel 12 time periods that must replicate as the basis of the Messianic Kingdom completion cycle of all 144000 under King-Priest Christ’s final coronation event; (Zech4:6-9; Zech6:9-15).
The “faithful and discreet slave” Governing Body blasphemy of this Watchtower issue affirms the final “lift up” of this modern and final “lawless one” body in worldwide public proclamations:
(2 Thessalonians 2:3-4) Let no one seduce you in any manner, because it will not come unless the apostasy comes first and the man of lawlessness gets revealed, the son of destruction. 4 He is set in opposition and lifts himself up over everyone who is called “god” or an object of reverence, so that he sits down in the temple of The God, publicly showing himself to be a god.
Now the apostasy (Dan11:32a) and it’s Bethel Governing Body clerical leaders as the “man of lawlessness” have culminated their own self revelation “in the temple” that precedes the final judgment cycle as a prophetic signal, that starts not with Babylon the Great’s judgment, but with the judgment cycle of Jehovah’s witnesses anointed claimants and the whole congregation worldwide. (1Pet4:17 as Dan8:13-14 as Rev8:1-6);
The JW temple judgment context can proceed any time now as replication of Revelation 8-11 will activate in Revelation 15-16 tandem events for the start of the Daniel 8:14 temple judgment and purification desolation (Dan8:13; UN NGO “transgression causing desolation”) prophetically TIMED period that begins the final progression to Armageddon some years later.
