3 In being fatherless, motherless, without genealogy [being
firstly Jared, then ascending to be an angel, then descending without a mother
or a father or an immediate genealogy to be Melchizedek], having
neither a beginning of days [the first day
that he descended as Melchizedek was not the first day of his life] nor an end of
life [having been given everlasting life], but having been made like the Son of
God [non adamically created like Jesus. Jared
was the second Adam], he remains a priest perpetually.
4 Behold, then, how great this man was [he will be the earthly king of the kingdom of God] to whom Abraham, the family head, gave a tenth out of the chief spoils (Hebrews 7)
So the Word became flesh and resided among us,
and we had a view of his glory, a glory such as belongs to an only-begotten son
from a father [actually an only
begotten God see verse 18]; and he
was full of undeserved kindness and truth.
15 John bore witness about him, yes, he actually cried out -- this was the one who said [it] -- saying: The one coming behind me has overtaken me/advanced in front of me, because he existed before me (John 1) [Gabriel who, was possessing John at the time, said that Michael who possessed Jesus after Gabriel possessed John and therefore came behind him, has advanced in front of Gabriel in salvation status (having everlasting life and shortly to become a God) because he was born as an angel before Gabriel was and so had first choice over the ARC by birthright. This statement is saying that Gabriel would have signed up to the ARC had he been older the Michael as an angel!] [In other words although my human vehicle was born 6 months before Jesus' human vehicle, his angelic vehicle and his spirit were born before my angelic vehicle and my spirit].
30 This is the one about whom I said, Behind me [the unsanctified sons of the 3EC] there comes a man who has overtaken me/advanced in front of me [the sons of the 4EC all of whom are sanctified], because he existed before me (John 1). [This is saying that the one who comes first in the physical body, does not come first in the spiritual body. The human is the water baptism, the possessing angel is the spirit baptism. Zechariah junior, the name John was going to be given, the name we give to the unpossessed non adamic human son of Elizabeth and Zechariah senior, is the 3EC. Immanuel, Joseph junior, is the 4EC, Gabriel is the 2NC Lords who are sanctified upon entry into the LWs, and Michael is the 2NC kings. In each presence there is a John religion and a Jesus religion.]
In fact, we think that Russell was water baptised from heaven as Elijah3 o 1884Tishri10, then he was sanctified on 1887Iyyar10 as the 12th apostle of the 1NC, a 1NC king, the first member of the Gabriel class. The all the 1NC kings, the remnant of Gabriel, left before 2001Heshvan10. The Watchtower do of course have 2NC kings, 1NC reserves and 2NC lords within them, but do not recognise any of these groups, and these groups are not Gabriel. So just as Gabriel left before John had his head cut off, so the 1NC kings leave in death before the head of the Watchtower was cut off, in 2000Heshvan, when the President, Milton Henschel, and then all the Governing Body members, retired from the WTBTS. This was the decapitation reformation of the Watchtower at the end of the 69 weeks of years of Daniel9, which started with the word going forth in the form of the 95 Theses of the reformation of Luther in 1517Heshvan. Herod did not want to chop John's head off but was forced by his wife. So pressure from Jezebel led the evil slave to cut its own head off. Carey Barber died unclean in the flesh and so was a rotten 1NC saint. John after Gabriel had left, did not recognise Jesus, who stands for the saints in the LWs here. Mind you the Watchtower did not recognise the restarting of the second presence through the baptism of 1NC reserves in Laodicea either.
The amazing thing about this is that John baptised non transitively. If you wanted to be baptised in his baptism then you had to be baptised by him personally. And the Watchtower baptise non transitively. They do not empower individual members of their congregation to baptise anyone. All baptisms are approved first by the society. But Jesus' disciples baptised transitively. Philip baptised the Ethiopian eunuch on the spot and Peter baptised his jailer on the spot. They did not have to refer to a body of elders first. The believer makes the choice, not the church.
36 Now as they were going over the road, they came to a certain
body of water, and the eunuch said: Look! A body of water; what prevents me from getting
baptized? (no verse 37)
38 With that he commanded the chariot to halt, and they both went down into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him (Acts 8).
30 And he brought them outside and said:
Sirs, what must I do to get saved?
31 They said: Believe on the Lord Jesus and you will get saved, you and your household.
32 And they spoke the word of Jehovah to him together with all those in his house.
33 And he took them along in that hour of the night and bathed their stripes; and, one and all, he and his were baptized without delay (Acts 16).
Likewise the LWs baptise transitively. We empower all of the male members of the church to baptise those who want it. For baptism is a gift from God, not a gift from the administration of any church. (updated)
11 Truly I say to you people, Among those
born of women there has not been raised up a greater than John the Baptist [since
John was non adamic like Jared and Methuselah and Enoch and Eber and Melchizedek
and Jesus etc - see U506]; but a
person that is the lesser one in the kingdom of the heavens [Melchizedek,
was born of Mrs Mahalalel, is number 2 in the kingdom. He is therefore the
lesser one to Jesus] is greater than he is [in
the kingdom of God].
12 But from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of the heavens [Kingdom of God] is the goal toward which men press, and those pressing forward are seizing it [being water baptised into that Kingdom] (Matthew 11).
The water baptism of John was not transitive. If John baptised you, you could not baptise anyone else. That is why everyone went out to get baptised directly by John. But Jesus made that baptism transitive for the 12 apostles, who then started the 12 greater tribes by water baptism.
1 When, now, the Lord became aware that
the Pharisees had heard that Jesus [through
his disciples] was making and baptizing more disciples than John [himself]
2 although, indeed, Jesus himself did no baptizing but his disciples did
3 he left Judea and departed again for Galilee (John 4).
Isaac stands for Immanuel, the genetic seed of David and son of Abraham, although non adamic. The lamb provided by God was Michael who entered the body of Immanuel. Immanuel himself was raptured which Michael entered his human body. So Immanuel was saved like Isaac, at the last minute. Whereas Michael, the lamb of God, was sacrificed.
Did they get in to the performance by accident? This was the greatest moment in the history of the heavens since the birth of Satan, the first angel. It was the climax of the test on Michael for his divinity. And two robbers come on to the stage as extras? What do they symbolise?
Even the soldiers
mocked him, coming close and offering him vinegar.
37 and saying: If you are the king of the Jewish [ones], save yourself.
38 There was also an inscription over him: This [one] is the king of the Jewish [ones].
39 But one of the hung evildoing [ones] was blaspheming him: Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us.
40 But answering the other rebuking him said: Do you not fear God, since you are in the same judgment?
41 And we, indeed, justly, for we are receiving [things] worthy of the [things] we committed; but this [one] did nothing] out of order
42 And he said: Jesus, remember me when you get into your kingdom.
43 And he said to him: Truly I tell you today, You will be with me in Paradise (Luke 23).
There are 4 parallel account of this Matthew 27:33-44 and Mark 15:22-32 and Luke 23:32-43 and John 19:16-27.
Well in the greatest meaning we know that each God takes two angels, one on his left hand and one on his right with him into the divinity baptism (from the account of John and James asking to sit at Jesus' right and left). We also know that the entire plan to save mankind uses 3 master mediators, Michael Gabriel and Melchizedek. So there is another fulfilment. But Luke 23 is not about these trios. In Luke the two evil doers are in the same judgement as Jesus. So they are in the same baptism. One becomes abusive and loses faith. The other keeps faith and is rewarded literally by a 1AC baptism into the kingdom whilst hanging on the stake!
Symbolically Jesus is the true 1NC saints, the abusive evildoer is the rotten 1NC saints and the faithful evildoer is the 1NC reserve saints. The 1NC reserves will be with Jesus in paradise. The rotten 1NC saints will either be in Gehenna or in paradise as humans. But they will not be with Jesus in heaven ruling as kings in paradise. The rotten saints get their legs broken since they lose their ability to walk (be regarded by God as acting without stumbling), they lose their spirit baptism. the last thing that Jesus did was to drink some old sour wine upon a sponge help up on a reed. This symbolises the sorry state of the true 1NC saints before they died in the Watchtower. They had become unthinking sponges, drinking old understandings, because that is what those in authority (the reed) were offering them. The spear in Jesus' side is a breach in one side of the temple. It is Ezekiel breaking through a wall. The wall of the Watchtower in this presence. Blood and water come out, both water baptised and 2NC spirit baptised brothers leave Jesus' body. They renounce their claim to be 1NC saints. For more on this see U55.
7 I form the light, and create/cut/define darkness: I make peace, and create/cut/define evil: I the LORD do all these [things] (Isaiah 45).
The Hebrew word for create used in Genesis1 means to cut, carve out, form by cutting. So it can mean create or define. God defines good and therefore defines evil as well.
