41 The Son of man will send forth his angels, and they will collect out of [ek] his kingdom all things that cause stumbling and persons who are doing lawlessness [So the lawless do make it into the Kingdom of the Son of man, which is the kingdom of God, a primarily spiritual kingdom, begins on 2008Nisan22. Russell, a spiritual son of Jacob, a spiritual Jew, a son of the JAC, was appointed as a vassal of Jehovah like David, in 1914Tishri. Jesus was not appointed as King until his marriage on the first day of the Kingdom of God] (Matthew 13).
He collects the lawless ones OUT of his Kingdom.
31 When the Son of man arrives in his glory, and all the angels
with him, then he will sit down on his glorious throne.
32 And all the nations will be gathered before him [in the kingdom of God with Jesus enthroned], and he will separate people one from another, just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats (Matthew 25)..
15 That is why they are before the throne of God; and they are rendering him sacred service day and night in his temple; and the one seated on the throne [meaning the kingdom has started] will spread his tent [skhnwsei - will put them up in his place] over them (Revelation 7).
So the entrance into God's physical paradise occurs after God sits down on his throne at the start of the kingdom.
10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven say: Now have come to pass the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ, because the accuser of our brothers has been hurled down, who accuses them day and night before our God! (Revelation 12).
The order of events is therefore.
1. Invisible Kingdom of God began on 2008Nisan22 (in heaven and on earth just
over the LWs and the 1NC reserves and the Laodiceans).
2. Non adamic Zoar began invisibly on 2012Sivan16, the end of the temple ratio period of U108, after 1335 days of expectation of Daniel12 from 2008Tishri1, the start of the first year entirely in the Kingdom.
3. The saints and the marriage guests enter into the ark
4. The sheep are separated from the goats by a love test when the Mark of the Beast comes in after the saints have entered into the ark to be kept from that test.
5. The goats are collected out of the kingdom by being incinerated by an extinction level volcanic event
At no time can one see the ark or the kingdom (i.e. an obvious physical manifestation that it has arrived) unless one has been born again. People will be saved on love and faith not on sight.
20 Furthermore, when you see Jerusalem
surrounded by encamped armies [who cannot
initially be that hostile or a flight would be impossible - so probably UN
peacekeepers or the likes], then know that the desolating of her has
21 Then let those in Judea begin fleeing to the mountains, and let those in the midst of her withdraw, and let those in the country places not enter into her;
22 because these are days for meting out justice, that all the things written may be fulfilled.
23 Woe to the pregnant women and the ones suckling a baby in those days! For there will be great necessity upon the land and wrath on this people [literally great necessity on Israel and wrath on the Israelis] [Symbolically great necessity on the congregation of the LWs and wrath upon them].
24 and they will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive into all the nations; and Jerusalem will be trampled on by the nations, until the appointed times of the nations are fulfilled.
25 Also, there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth anguish of nations, not knowing the way out because of the roaring of the sea [the roaring of the general public who are no part of government] and [its] agitation,
26 while men become faint out of fear and expectation of the things coming upon the inhabited earth [nuclear terrorism, plague, economic collapse, global warming etc. this being the Great Tribulation]; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
27 And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory [after the Great Tribulation has begun].
28 But as these things start to occur, raise yourselves erect and lift your heads up, because your deliverance is getting near.
29 With that he spoke an illustration to them: Note the fig tree and all the other trees:
30 When they are already in the bud [buds are signs of the times, signs of the harvest to come], by observing it you know for yourselves that now the summer [the harvest season] is near.
31 In this way you also, when you see these things occurring [all the signs of the times], know that the kingdom of God [the harvest of God's people] is near.
32 Truly I say to you, This generation [who fought in WW1, who rose nation against nation - see verse 10] will by no means pass away/come beside/arrive until all things occur [including your deliverance].
33 Heaven [Satan's heavenly administration] and earth [Satan's earthly administration] will pass away/come beside/arrive, but my words will by no means pass away/come beside/arrive.
34 But pay attention to yourselves that your hearts never become weighed down with overeating and heavy drinking and anxieties of life, and suddenly that day [the day between the passing away of the heaven and the passing away of the earth, which is the day of the time of the end] be instantly upon you [because it does not come with any observability - Luke 17:20 - The kingdom of God is not coming observably]
35 as a snare [Snares are not seen in advance]. For it will come in upon all those dwelling upon the face of all the earth [All of us, the good and the wicked alike will outsurvive both Satan's heavenly administration and his earthly administration. We will all enter into the Kingdom of God in Satan's tent, but we will not all enter into the kingdom of God in Jehovah's tent which is our deliverance].
36 Keep awake, then, all the time making supplication that you may succeed in escaping all these things that are destined to occur, and in standing before the Son of man (Luke 21).
16 for I tell you, I will not eat it again until it becomes completed [plhrwqh] [when we complete the Passover festival by adding the Christian course to the meal. The last 6,000 1NC reserves come in on 2016VeAdar10-12 and 2017Nisan11-12 and 2017Iyyar10-12, completing Jesus and then completing the 1NC reserve marriage] in the kingdom of God (Luke 22).
Q: Where is the evidence that we are in the kingdom of God?
A1: No sign will be given a wicked generation and adulterer other that the sign of Jonah. This generation is killed off during the wilderness period which is for the purpose of killing them off. Jonah must be preaching LW doctrine in the Watchtower. Or perhaps the Sign of Jonah is the fact that Jonah is waiting for the fire signs of 1Kings18.
A2: The Sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven at the end of the 40 year Watchtower wilderness period from 1976Tishri1 to 2016Tishri1/Adar1, the start of the 41st old secular/new secular year.
How do we leave a temporal wilderness? We get good chronology. We unseal the bible chronologically. The Jews followed a cloud about a tent going around in circles in a geographical wilderness into a geographical promised land. The LWs follow a mushroom cloud over a temple round in temporal circles into a temporal promised land - when we actually get the correct chronology of the bible and in particular the first 3/4 fire signs of 1Kings18.
23 Then he went around throughout the whole of Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the good news of the kingdom and curing every sort of disease and every sort of infirmity among the people (Matthew 4).
35 And Jesus set out on a tour of all the
cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the good news of
the kingdom and curing every sort of disease and every sort of infirmity
14 And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come (Matthew 24).
43 But he said to them: Also to other cities I must declare the good news of the kingdom of God, because for this I was sent forth (Luke 4).
1 Shortly afterwards he went journeying from city to city and from village to village, preaching and declaring the good news of the kingdom of God. And the 12 were with him (Luke 8).
12 But when they believed Philip, who was declaring the good news of the kingdom of God and of the name of Jesus Christ, they proceeded to be baptized, both men and women (Acts 8).
Above are the 6 scriptures which contain the phrase "Good news of the kingdom". It is an ambiguous phrase. It could mean the good news that there will be a kingdom of God. Indeed that is what it meant in the literal meaning of the Gospels. But it could also mean the good news that the kingdom of God has arrived, i.e. the good news that you are actually in the kingdom of God. This is its meaning for the the present time. In other words the big preaching work begins in the kingdom, after 2008Nisan22.
31 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my
words will not pass away.
32 Concerning that day or the hour nobody has seen, neither the angels in heaven nor the Son, but the Father.
33 Keep looking [for the hour of the passing away of the heaven and for the hour of the passing away of the earth], keep awake, for you do not know when the appointed time is.
34 It is like a man travelling abroad that left his house and gave the authority to his slaves, to each one his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to keep on the watch [So the church which keeps watching and finally predicts this date correctly is or has the doorkeeper].
35 Therefore keep on the watch, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming, whether late in the day or at midnight or at cockcrowing or early in the morning [no scripture is without power, so he comes at all 4 of these times];
36 in order that when he arrives suddenly, he does not find you sleeping.
37 But what I say to you I say to all, Keep on the watch (Matthew 24).
2 And by the 7th day God came to the completion of his work that he had made, and he proceeded to rest on/in/at the 7th day from all his work that he had made (Genesis 2)
28 But if it is by means of God's spirit
that I expel the demons, the kingdom of God has really overtaken you.
29 Or how can anyone invade the house of a strong man and seize his movable goods, unless first he binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house (Matthew 12).
So first God binds Satan by taking heavenly authority. Then he invades his house under the cover of the Great Tribulation.
This is when the LWs start to grow by seizing the moveable goods, those people
prepared to leave Satan's house for God's house. Regrettably, not all the goods
