[38] Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia & Laodicea

Ephesus

 

The way in which Jesus describes himself to each of the 7 angels/presidents is in fact his description of that angel/president!

1 To the angel the in Ephesus of ecclesia write The-but (things) is saying the (one) holding the seven stars in the right [hand] of him [7x.5x=35x], the (one) walking about in middle of the seven lampstands the golden [7x each lampstand is a congregation. Jesus walks about within each temporally successive lampstand. Not between all 7 of them, in all 7 of them], (Revelation 2 KIT)

The total sentence count of Jesus' activities in verse1 is 35x+7x-42x from 1875Iyyar21, when TCC1 began with the baptism or acceptance of the 2nd brother by Charles Taze Russell, to 1916Heshvan1 (his death). 42 Tishri1 Rosh Hashanas.

2 I know your deeds, and your labour and endurance, and that you cannot bear bad men, and that you put those to the test who say they are apostles, but they are not, and you found them liars [false Elijah's? Catholic apostolic succession from Peter?].
3 You are also showing endurance, and you have borne up for my name's sake and have not grown weary.
4 Nevertheless, I hold [this] against you, that you have left the love you had at first.
5 Therefore remember from what you have fallen, and repent and do the former deeds. If you do not, I am coming to you, and I will remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent [Jesus came to the Watchtower from 1901Tishri2/Heshvan21 to 1905Nisan17/Sivan6 to appoint/install FDS1 to feed and then to rule over all of his belongings at that time. So Russell did repent and he did not lose his lampstand. But there was a big division between the Russellites and the Rutherfordites AFTER Russell died. That was a disaster for the Watchtower - So sad. Many Russellites left the Watchtower]
6 Still, you do have this, that you hate the deeds of the sect of Nicolaus, which I also hate [Nicolaus is only mentioned once outside of Revelation. He was one of the first 7 bureaucrats in the first Christian Church. The Nicolatians worship status within the church. They like to be 'close to the Bethel', close to the Head Office, rather than close to God. Russell trusted a few brothers (Macmillan etc.), not any form of bureaucracy].
7 Let the one who has an ear hear what the spirit says to the congregations: To him that conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God (Revelation 2).

"After Russell's death, a crisis arose surrounding Rutherford's leadership of the society, culminating in a movement-wide schism. As many as three-quarters of the approximately 50,000 Bible Students who had been associating in 1917 had left by 1931. This shift resulted in the formation of several groups that retained variations on the name Bible Students. Those who maintained fellowship with the Watch Tower Society adopted the name Jehovah's witnesses in 1931, while those who severed ties with the Society formed their own groups including the Pastoral Bible Institute in 1918, the Laymen's Home Missionary Movement in 1919, and the Dawn Bible Students Association in 1929" - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Taze_Russell .

Russell/FDS1 would not have been appointed over all of Jesus' belongings at Jesus' coming to inspect the temple had he not repented. But the fact remains that much of his lampstand was removed from its place during the presidency of Rutherford. However that lampstand was moved. It was not extinguished. So Jesus could be speaking to Russell and sons, all the sons of the 3EC. Their mountain was moved and their lampstand is being moved into Laodicea and then into Zoar.

4 I hold this against you, that you have left the love you had at first (Revelation 2).

This was the love which the whole Watchtower Society first had, the new love of getting to know God for the first time, like the love of every bible study and of every girl and boy when they first fall for each other.

5 I am coming to you and I will remove your lampstand from its place (Revelation 2).

FDS3 was 'born' at the heavenly water baptism of Charles Taze Russell as Elijah3 on 1871Heshvan21 - see U42. Russell was sanctified on 1889Sivan10, restarting the Gentile Call into the 1NC. The greater congregation of Ephesus began when he baptized or accepted the first brother or sister into the church on 1875Iyyar21. FDS3 (not Russell) was commissioned to build the temple of its administration in 1882Tishri2 and finished it 22½ years later on 1905Nisan17, when FDS3 was appointed to rule over the 1NCs. FDS3 was appointed/installed to feed the body, the body of domestics, the body of Jesus, on 1901Tishri2/Heshvan21, after 26 years of existence.

Russell was appointed as Elijah3, but did not understand that appointment. Whereas Herbert Armstrong who was not an Elijah misunderstood himself to be one. All Elijah's are apostles of Jesus. Russell Knew the continuous Gentile Times ended in 1914Tishri. But he did not understand the 98 year Maccabean gap which prolonged the Discontinuous Gentile Times until 2012Tishri15 - see U120..

2 You cannot bear bad men, and you put those to the test who say they are apostles, but they are not, and you found them liars (Revelation 2).

Amusingly enough Russell's authority was in the line from Peter, for Peter was the first president of FDS1, the first century administrator of the house of David on mount Zion. whereas Russell was the first head of the reformed version of the first true Christian church which was a 1NC church. Whereas Gordon's authority is similar to that of Paul, the first president of FDS2, the first century administrator of the house of Jehovah on mount Moriah, the second mountain in Jerusalem, rather than the king's palace on mount Zion, the first mountain in Jerusalem. Mind you the roles of secular or sacred king (king or priest) are interchangeable for the saints.

In particular it was Russell’s refusal to bear the badness of Nelson Barbour, when he printed in the Magazine ‘The Herald of the morning’ an article denying the ransoming value of Jesus’ sacrifice, which led him to leave that magazine. In response he started his own magazine in July 1879, proclaiming the ransoming value of that sacrifice, without which both Adam and all men are condemned in perpetuity. This magazine was called ‘Zion’s Watchtower’. What a name! See U153 - Josephus - ‘Scopus’ is the Latin for Watchtower. The ransom doctrine of Russell has since been corrupted by the Watchtower propounding that Adam himself is not ransomed ! If Adam is not to be ransomed then all of Abraham's seed are done for. He was the one who was sentenced to death, not any of his sons (directly).

Smyrna

  

8 And to the angel of the congregation in Smyrna write: These are the things that he says, 'the First and the Last,' who became dead and came to life [again],
9 I know your tribulation and poverty--but you are rich--and the blasphemy by those who say they themselves are Jews, and yet they are not but are a synagogue of Satan.
10 Do not be afraid of the things you are about to suffer. Look! The Devil will keep on throwing some of you into prison that you may be fully put to the test, and that you may have tribulation 10 days [10 months from 1918Iyyar24 to 1918VeAdar17/18]. Prove yourself faithful even to death, and I will give you the crown of life (Revelation 2).

There is a sense in which Rutherford is the first and the last. He was the first president whose baptism was approved by Russell (a necessary criterion to be the Shepherd - the doorkeeper opens to this one according to John10 - see U60). He was also the last president of the Watchtower to have his baptism so approved because Knorr was baptised after Russell had expired. Rutherford certainly died and came to life again when the directors of the Watchtower Society were locked up in prison.

On 1918Iyyar24 (1918May7) the governing body were arrested for 'sedition' and locked up in prison. They were released 10 months later on 1918VeAdar17/18. This occurred during the congregation of Smyrna, under the second president of the Watchtower, Joseph Rutherford. The tribulation 10 days means a period of 10 times of tribulation in the greater meaning. They were released in the intercalary leap month that is not counted in the BLC. So they were inside for 10 months according to the BLC (Sivan to Adar - taking Iyyar as the accession month, or counting exclusively). A 'time' means a day a month or a year in bible symbolism, one heavenly timepiece cycle, either of the earth around itself, or of the moon around the earth or of the earth around the sun. So it is a day for a month, we believe that God is giving you by the Numerical Principle. This is pretty strong evidence that:

[A] The JW's were the true religion and 
[B] The 7 congregations of Revelation 2,3 are indeed consecutive.

9 The blasphemy by those who say they are Jews, and yet they are not but are a synagogue of Satan (Revelation 2).

Blasphemy by saying they are Jews means taking God's glory for oneself by declaring that they are the true people of God. This is what the various anti Rutherford groups were doing at the appointment of Rutherford. So this is Jesus speaking prophetically about the split into the various 'Russellites' camps and the 'Rutherfordites' at the beginning of Smyrna. The 'Russellites' became another synagogue of Satan. 'Synagogue' because it contained 1NC saints, covenant sons of Jacob through the JAC, covenant Israelites. But they were not worshipping at the temple in Jeruisalem (the Watchtower). So they were not Judeans in that sense. They were not sons of Isaac, having lost their water baptism by leaving the church of the 3EC..

The term 'Jew' is used to mean one of God's chosen people, one who worships as a Judean at the temple in Jerusalem. So a Jew is just a son of Isaac today, a son of the ICC, a water baptised Christian (i.e. being clean in the flesh, i.e. having one's sins in the past forgiven). But then a Jew can also mean a son of Jacob, which today would mean a covenant son of Jacob, a son of the JAC, rather than a son of Jacob by genetics.

The leaders of the Watchtower, including Rutherford, the president, went to prison for just under a year in this watch, as a result of religious persecution from the other churches of course.

10 Look! the Devil will keep on throwing some of you into prison, that you may be fully put to the test and that you may have tribulation 10 days (Revelation 2).

12 Look! I am coming quickly, and the reward I give is with me, to render to each one as his work is.
13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end (Revelation 22).

By the Immediate Repetition Principle, there is a greater meaning to Alpha and Omega and a greater meaning to the concept of first and last. The clue is in the verse above: I am coming quickly! Jesus was the first to come to this world as Enoch, the one transferred so as not to see death. And he is the last to come descending from the ark to the earth after in the greater angelic flood of Noah.

The greater meaning of Alpha and Omega, more than merely first and last, is that since there are 24 letters in the Greek alphabet, there must be 24 comings (of Michael, Gabriel and Melchizedek, with Michael coming first and last? We so far have 18 of them - see intro21) in all to mankind AND 24 salvation covenants made with mankind which Michael making the first of the, the Alpha Covenant, the ARC, and the last of them the Omega Covenant, the LRC - see intro28. The 24 comings begin with Enoch and end with the 3rd Holy Spirit joining Zoar, these both being comings of Michael in the flesh. This is a big understanding - see U506. This is another reason why the hour of a coming is often used, the hour referring to one of the 12 comings of Jesus himself??

Pergamum

   

12 And to the angel of the congregation in Pergamum write: These are the things that he says who has the sharp, long two-edged sword [of the word of God of Hebrew 4:12. Two mouthed because it can put you into the true church or it can put you into Gehenna.  Long means numerically large. Knorr was the most successful president of the Watchtower from an evangelical standpoint. The congregation increased by 20x during his presidency from 150,000 to 3,000,000] 
13 I know where you are dwelling, that is, where the throne of Satan is; and yet you keep on holding fast my name, and you did not deny your faith in me even in the days of Antipas, my witness, the faithful one, who was killed by your side, where Satan is dwelling.

The throne of Satan is the UN, right next to the Watchtower, just across the east river in Manhattan. This juxtaposition started in this 3rd watch, the 3rd presidency of the Watchtower. Rockerfeller Junior donated 8.5 million dollars in 1946/7 and the building was completed in 1952. Brother Knorr was president from 1942 until 1977:

Knorr prophesied in 1942 that the League of Nations would be reformed, on the basis of Revelation 17, the beast ascending out of the abyss. Unfortunately the fact that Satan dwells by their side is repeated, so applying the Repetition Principle of the code, there are two ways in which he dwells by their side. The first way is the physical position of the UN, the second is through Balaam, Balak, and Nicolaus, all teachers in the congregation for the scriptures say in the counsel to Pergamum and Thyatira

14 Nevertheless, I have a few things against you, that you have there those holding fast the teaching of Balaam, who went teaching Balak [the king of Moab, which means water-father, so the Governing Body] to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols [new understandings are all submitted to the governing body for approval before they are eaten. And the governing body is idolised. So all Watchtower food is offered to idols. Food is not offered to God for approval through comparative bible research, by modern day prophets - bible researchers] and to commit fornication [fornication is the joining of two fleshes outside of a covenant. So is this people declaring themselves to be one flesh with Jesus when they are not 1NCs? Is this selling Doves? Is this Money changing - Covenant swapping?].

29 Further, let 2 or 3 prophets speak, and let the others discern the meaning.
30 But if there is a revelation to another one while sitting there, let the first one keep silent.
31 For you can all prophesy one by one, that all may learn and all be encouraged.
32 And [gifts of] the spirit of the prophets are to be controlled by the prophets.
33 For God is [a God], not of disorder, but of peace. As in all the congregations of the holy ones, (1 Corinthians 14 NWT)

The food served should be determined not by the governing body, but by a committee of prophets. People who cannot play football should not be managing football teams. the trouble with JWs is that they ONLY eat food sacrificed to idols. If the Governing Body does not accept an understanding scripture then to a JW, that understanding is incorrect however self evidently correct it may be. So JWs are no longer bible students. They can no longer eat the word of God. They only eat the words of the governing body. 

15 So you, also, have those holding fast the teaching of the sect of Nicolaus likewise.
16 Therefore repent. If you do not, I am coming to thee quickly, and I will war with them with the long sword of my mouth [Knorr must have repented, because Jesus did not come to him - see Revelation 2:25. But the Governing body became a democracy on 1975Iyyqr18/19 (1975May1). The Watchtower Governing Body vote unanimously to become democratic, deciding things by a 2/3 majority like the Catholics do. This was Jezebel usurping Ahab. Knorr and Franz And Barry were against this. But they went with the majority will] (Revelation 2).

12 For the word of God is alive and exerts power and is sharper than any two-mouthed/edged sword and pierces even to the dividing of soul and spirit, and of joints and [their] marrow, and [is] able to discern thoughts and intentions of [the] heart. (Hebrews 4 NWT)

14 You have those holding fast the teaching of Balaam (Revelation 2).

15 You also have those holding fast the teaching of the sect of Nicolaus (Revelation 2).

20 Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and misleads my slaves to commit fornication and to eat things sacrificed to idols (Revelation 2).

All 3 of these warnings relate to those who teach. And the counsel is to the angel of the congregation, the head of those who teach. It therefore all applies to the FDS, the Watchtower administration. Jezebel cannot be women in the congregation (as the Watchtower proposes) because women do not teach in the congregation. Jezebel is therefore a class of men who are the wife of the king of Israel, as Jezebel was to Ahab. She is therefore the rest of the Governing Body, who stole the authority of the angel appointed by Jesus for themselves when they became democratic. God is not a democrat. And neither is he a republican. The angel should make the decision, but not without consulting the body. And one more than him on the body must agree with him for non life threatening decisions to be made and 2 more than him on the body must agree with him for life threatening decisions to be made. For when 2 or 3 are gathered together in  Jesus' name then Jesus is in their midst. 

Jezebel's fornication is a result of her posing as a prophetess, i.e. her calling herself the 'wide awake John class', a channel for God, a channel for the holy spirit, rather than a channel for food for men. She tells everyone that she is the chef, but she is no more than a waitress. By posing as a prophetess, Jezebel dolls herself up to look more sexy, more spiritually attractive, than God, in front of the sheep. Therefore the angels that follow, the 4th and 5th presidents, Franz and Henschel, give their admiration to her, and they love her, whereas the first commandment is to love Jehovah.

In fact they love money (Balaam), prominence (Nicolaus), congregational fertility and status (Baal) and a democratic Governing Body (Jezebel) more than God, and they follow after these things rather than after God, and this is spiritual fornication. In fact it's adultery given that they are covenanted to love God first. This counsel is not to Babylon, it is to true Christians, and it applies today. The baptism in water of the Watchtower into the 3EC, the 3rd Elijah Covenant, Russell's covenant, was of the same type as the baptism of John the baptist, into the 1EC the 1st Elijah Covenant. The Elijah covenants are subcovenants of the ICC, the Isaaic Church Covenant which Isaac mediated after the second promise from God to Abraham, the Abrahamic Church Promise - see intro28

Nicolaus was one of the 7 ministerial servants appointed in Acts 6 to deliver [food] to tables because this was not convenient for the apostles since they wished to remain with the Word of God, who is Jesus. This 'Word' is currently in heaven, and the apostles are remaining with him, and the 7 certified ministerial servants may stand for the 7 stars in Jesus' right hand, the ones truly appointed to deliver food to tables at the proper time in the Lord's day:

1 Now in these days, when the disciples were increasing, a murmuring arose on the part of the Greek-speaking Jews against the Hebrew-speaking Jews, because their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution.
2 So the 12 called the multitude of the disciples to them and said: It is not pleasing for us to leave the word of God to distribute [food] to tables.
3 So, brothers, search out for yourselves 7 certified men from among you, full of spirit and wisdom, that we may appoint them over this necessary business;
4 but we shall devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.
5 And the thing spoken was pleasing to the whole multitude, and they selected Stephen, a man full of faith and holy spirit, and Philip and Prochorus and Nicanor and Timon and Parmenas and Nicolaus, a proselyte of Antioch;
6 and they placed them before the apostles, and, after having prayed, these laid their hands upon them (Acts 6).

These 7 may stand for the 7 presidents of true religions in the second presence. 

The leaven of Pergamum progresses to corruption in Thyatira and death in Sardis. This is obviously a temporal progression. One bible describes the three churches of Pergamum, Thyatira and Sardis, as the compromising, the corrupt and the dead. This is the progression of sin, James puts it: desire then sin then death (James 1:14,15). It's the same progression, a progression in time. Jezebel has been dead in the flesh since 2001Heshvan14, when ES2 lost its water baptism.

Thyatira

 

18 And to the angel to the in Thyatira of ecclesia write The-but (things) is saying the Son of the God, the (one) having the eyes of him as flame of fire [2x+2x], and the feet of him like to fine copper [10x+2x], (Revelation 2 KIT)

The sentence count of Jesus' self description which actually applies to Franz, is 2x+2x+10x+2x=16x. These are the secular years of his presidency from 1977Tammuz4 to 1992Chislev22 (16 secular Tishri1 year starts).

18 And to the angel of the congregation in Thyatira write: These are the things that the Son of God says, he who has his eyes like a fiery flame, and his feet are like fine copper [Franz was a true son of God a true 1NC saint. His eyes were like a fiery flame because he believed that Jesus knew the date of the end of the world after he ascended and that it was possible for mankind to know it too - Dan Sydlik told Gordon this. His feet, the JW congregation under him, were fine copper, good priests, in his days]
19 'I know your deeds, and your love and faith and ministry and endurance, and that your deeds of late are more than those formerly.
20 'Nevertheless, I do hold [this] against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel [the balance of the governing body, the wife of the king (Ahab), who usurp the authority of the angel, the president, through democracy], who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and misleads my slaves to commit fornication [to join their flesh with Jesus, declaring themselves to be 1NC saints, when they are no such thing and have no covenant with him] and to eat things sacrificed to idols [only eat food approved by the governing body whom they idolize. In particular to reject any and every direction from the Holy Spirit through the word of God, which has not been approved by the Governing Body].
21 And I gave her time to repent, but she is not willing to repent of her fornication. 
22 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 [She is accepting false 1NCs. This is the Satanic power game at governing body level. They must reject what she is offering. She is committing adultery, because many on the Governing body, but not all, are true 1NCs engaged to marry Jesus].
23 And her children I will kill with deadly plague, so that all the congregations will know that I am he who searches the kidneys and hearts, and I will give to you individually according to your deeds.
24 'However, I say to the rest of you who are in Thyatira, all those who do not have this teaching, the very ones who did not get to know the deep things of Satan [Joining the UN. Riding the beast as a harlot church. Putting the throne of Satan into the temple of Jehovah. They joined on 1991Shebat16, 1992January28. Franz died on 1992Chislev22. Also idolatry of the priesthood, selling Doves - making a market in 1NC saints], as they say: I am not putting upon you [plural] any other burden.
25 Just the same, hold fast what you [plural] have until I come (Revelation 2).

So Jesus did not come in the 4th watch, the presidency of Freddie Franz or the 'you' would be singular in verse 25. The phrase: I am not putting upon you any other burden is a reference to Acts 15:

28 For the holy spirit and we ourselves have favoured adding no further burden to you except these necessary things: 
29 to keep abstaining from things sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication (Acts 15).

This decision by the governing body of FDS1 under the presidency of James, was due to the physical Jews in the congregation trying to put burdens on the flock to obey aspects of the law of Moses which were done away with by Jesus. The same is happening in Thyatira. Hence this counsel from Jesus. The only burden that Jesus is putting on the flock is that they avoid fornicating with Jezebel and avoid eating things sacrificed to idols. His wording identical to the Governing body decision in Acts 15. In fact there were a huge number of unnecessary physical restrictions put on the Jehovah's witnesses at that time, which still remain in place. But Jesus knew that the flock was carrying these burdens and was impressed with that. But warns them about the deep things of Satan (idolatry of the priesthood and swapping spirit covenants 1NC to 2NC or vice versa and buying a position as a 1NC or 2NC saint). 

Kidneys remove waste material. They symbolise one's rejection of bad. This is a metabolic symbolism, a physiological symbolism. This counsel identifies the leaven, the deep things of Satan, known to some but not to all. Jesus says:

23 And her children I will kill with deadly plague, so that all congregations will know that I am he who searches the kidneys and hearts (Revelation 2).

Jezebel's children are those who she has accepted as 1NC or later on as 2NC saints. Jehovah's angel killed 70,000 by a plague as a result of David's illegal registration of physical Israel. Here is another illegal registration into covenant Israel, the JAC, by Jezebel.

The JWs are no longer Christians. They have become Christian-ians, following followers of Christ rather than following the Christ himself. They, like the Catholics before them, follow the priest, in their case the slave, rather than the master of that slave. They live by Papal decree, they have put their trust in mortals to whom no salvation belongs. It has been the blind following the blind and now they have all fallen into the ditch, in fact into the abyss on 2004Elul14 (2004September1) the start of their field service year) when their constant feature of field service was rejected by Jesus (since they were recruiting for their own benefit not his). 

22 Look! I am throwing her into a sickbed (Revelation 2 KI/NWT).

The sickbed is the loss of the 3EC water baptism, which made all JWs unclean in the flesh from 2001Heshvan14 onwards. The Laodiceans recognised this and so stole the 4EC water baptism from the LWs to form their sect within the Watchtower, the 7th congregation of Revelation2-3. 

Those who have good hearts but bad kidneys, are yes men, they cannot say no to bad. The congregations of the JWs are full of such men. They can say no to physical fornication, but they cannot say no to spiritual fornication. In other words they cannot say no to their priests. They love the Watchtower magazine more than the Bible, that is if they are even able to make a distinction between the two publications. They read the Bible only to confirm the doctrine of the Watchtower, whereas it should manifestly be the other way round. Of course they declare that they are reading the Watchtower to confirm the doctrine of the Bible. But they are liars. If they are put to the test and asked to follow the Bible, in the absence of any comment in the Watchtower they will not do it. And if they are following something in the Watchtower that conflicts with the Bible, they will keep on following the Watchtower not withstanding the Bible.

For the Catholics took the bible away from the eyes of the congregation by refusing to print it in English. Which one of the bible translators did they not persecute or kill? But the Watchtower is more subtle. It puts the bible right in front of the eyes of the brothers, but takes it away from their minds, by telling the flock that their minds will never grasp a new understanding from it, since only the remnant, the slave, the new covenant saints in the HQ of the JW's, the Governing Body, can do this, Jezebel, the wife of the King, who 'calls herself' a prophetess. The remnant in fact call themselves a prophetess in their own book of Revelation:

He uses the John Class in unlocking the meaning of the prophecy ('Revelation book' page 16).

But they forget that whilst the FDS is exclusive over all of Jesus' belongings, interpretations do not belong to him, they belong to God, as Joseph said. And as Jesus said, when asked how a man who had not studied in the schools, had a knowledge of letters:

16 What I teach is not mine, but belongs to him that sent me (John 7).

But now Jesus says to the true Christian

23 I will give you individually according to your deeds (Revelation 2).

So your master is here encouraging you, the reader, to consider your actions, individually. Do you serve him or do you serve his self serving slave?

26 And the [one] overcoming, and the [one] keeping My works until [the] end, "I will give to him authority over the nations,"
27 and "he will shepherd them with an iron staff" they are "broken to pieces like clay vessels", as I also have received from My Father. [Psalm. 2:8, 9]
28 And I will give to him the Morning Star [the Sun, the light of Jesus].
29 The [one] who has an ear, hear what the Spirit says to the congregations. (Revelation 2 GLT)

16 'I, Jesus, sent my angel to bear witness to you people of these things for the congregations. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright morning star.' (Revelation 22 NWT)

A Classic Omission Symbolism

20 Jezebel who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and misleads my slaves to commit fornication and to eat things sacrificed to idols (Revelation 2).

There then follows a beautiful example of the Omission Principle for we read:

21 But she is not willing to repent of her fornication (Revelation 2).

What about eating things sacrificed to idols? Well Freddie Franz, the 4th president did repent of this, he accepted that there was merit to our work, and directed that it should be looked at. We know this, from various scriptures, and it has been confirmed to Gordon, by Dan Sydlik of the governing body (now dead).

Sardis

 

1 And to the angel of the congregation in Sardis write: These are the things that he says who has the 7 spirits of God and the 7 stars [7x+7x=14x], 'I know your deeds, that you have the name that you are alive, but you are dead.

14 years is all Jesus has left from the start of the Presidency of Milton on 1992Chislev30 to 2006Iyyar14, when the 2nd presence restarted after the Laodicean star was appointed/installed to feed the 1NCs on 2003Tishri2/Heshvan21, at which point Jesus had the 7 spirits of God and the 7 stars. Actually if Jesus HAS all 7 stars then Milton does repent as instructed in verse3.  But he did not wake up because Jesus did come as a thief during his watch and cut FDS3 in two.

1 And to the angel of the congregation in Sardis write: These are the things that he says who has the 7 spirits of God [and the 7 church administrations, supposedly made up of saints, each of which plays holy spirit to the star, who is the head of that holy spirit. Each member of the church administration should be holy a 1NC or HLC or 2NC saint - 7 Most Holies in the temple] and the 7 stars [the 7 angels/stars/presidents to the congregations. Jesus separates the two indicating that there is a star which is not part of the spirit of God, not spirit baptised], 'I know your deeds, that you have the name that you are alive, but you are dead [Henschel was not a judicially alive 1NC saint. He was judicially dead. He was the result of the teaching of Jezebel to fornicate with Jesus' wife. He was a fake 1NC. Gordon told the Governing Body this].
2 Become watchful, and strengthen the things remaining [the 1NC remnant] that are about to die [before 2001Heshvan14, the end of the Watchtower 3EC water baptism], for I have not found your deeds fully performed before my God.
3 Therefore, continue mindful of how you have received and how you heard, and go on keeping [it], and repent. Certainly unless you wake up, I shall come as a thief, and you will not know at all at what hour I shall come upon you.
4 'Nevertheless, you do have a few names [saints] in Sardis that did not defile their outer garments, and they shall walk with me  [without stumbling i.e. as a saint]  in white ones, because they are worthy
5 He that conquers will thus be arrayed in white outer garments [declared righteous either in the flesh or in the spirit]; and I will by no means blot out his name from the book of life [the book of those sealed who have passed a salvation test], but I will make acknowledgment of his name before my Father and before his angels [his salvation covenant name]
6 Let the one who has an ear hear what the spirit says to the congregations.' (Revelation 3 NWT)

Jesus makes it quite plain that he will come in this watch. He comes to Sardis, the 5th Presidency that of Milton Henschel, the angel, the messenger, the president who has the name that he is alive, but he is dead. The fake 1NC saint. Jesus comes as a thief and removes the authority and baptism of the Watchtower without them realising it at first, as happens when a thief steals something. 

Milton is told to repent, and he will. Milton this is what Jesus says to you:

3 Become watchful and strengthen the things remaining that were ready to die...(Revelation 3).

This means look after the true 1NC remnant who all die before 2001Heshvan14, when the Watchtower loses its water baptism during your presidency. Milton did this.

3 ...Certainly unless you wake up, I shall come as a thief, and you will not know at all at what hour I shall come upon you (Revelation 3).

15 Look! I am coming as a thief, Happy is the one that stays awake and keeps his outer garments, that he may not walk naked and people look upon his shamefulness (Revelation 16).

So for a fact Jesus does come as a thief, removing their exclusive authority over the saints on tablet shattering day 1998Elul27/29 and then removing their priestly garments, when they lost their 3EC water baptism on 2001Heshvan14. Therefore for a fact they do not wake up, and they do not know at all what hour he comes on them. Therefore he comes in the physical 5th watch. In fact he has already come, and we are telling you after the event. He came to appoint/install Gordon to feed the proselyte 2NC saints, Jesus' belongings, on 1997Nisan20/Sivan9, and he appointed/installed Gordon to feed the 1NC reserves on 1998Tishri2/Heshvan21, and he appointed/installed FDS4 not over all of his belongings, all the saints, but to rule as sacred king over the proselyte 2NCs on 2000Tishri2/Heshvan21 - see U200 and see U42. His comings are always to appoint a new priesthood. The LW priesthood has been operational exclusively over all the 2NCs since 2011Chislev21, the late 2NC Pentecost, the end of the LW 2NC Alienation Times. It was the practice in Zerubbabel's temple to strip the Levites who fell asleep on the watch, although this is not referred to in the bible, and was not a feature of the law. It's like Jesus said just before defining both FDSs:

42 Keep on the watch therefore because you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. 
43 But know one thing, if the householder had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have kept awake and not been broken into, on this account you too prove yourselves ready, because at an hour that you do not think to be it the Son of man is coming (Matthew 24).

This clearly says that those who are commanded to keep on the watch fail to see the coming of the Lord, who is one particular Son of man (son of the man, son of pre fall Adam), and they did not know in what watch he was coming. Whereas the 'you too' refers to another group, the LWs. 

The scriptures which prove the symbolism that outer garments are priestly attire and white outer garments means declared righteous are as follows:

3 With the following Aaron should come into the holy place: with a young bull for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering. 
4 He should put on the holy linen robe, and the linen drawers should come upon his flesh, and he should gird himself with the linen sash and wrap himself with the linen turban. They are holy garments. And he must bathe his flesh in water and put them on (Leviticus 16). [White outer garments].

34 And the priest who will be anointed and whose hand will be filled with power to act as priest as successor of his father, must make an atonement and must put on linen garments (Leviticus 16:34). [Nice proof that the priesthood went from Father to son.]

8 Yes, it has been granted to her to be arrayed in bright, clean, fine linen, for the fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the holy ones (Revelation 19).

14 Also the armies that were in heaven were following him on white horses, and they were clothed in white clean fine linen (Revelation 19).

Furthermore Jesus himself says to Milton Henschel himself:

5 He that conquers will thus be arrayed in white outer garments, and I will by no means blot out his name from the book of life (Revelation 3).

One gets a name when one is sanctified, like Moses said:

32 And now if you will pardon their sin, and if not, wipe me out please, from your book that you have written (Exodus 32).

There is a book of life for each sealing covenant. But the overall book of like would be that of those who have been sealed after passing their 1AC baptism test. For Abraham is the father of us all says Paul (in the Abrahamic System at least).

If Jesus swears not to rub your name out, then you are permanently in the book, for God does everything through Jesus. If this is the case then you have the blessing of the sealing covenant which is the soul given by the validation sacrifice. So now we are able to see the big picture in the counsel to Sardis. Henschel was a fake 1NC. But Jesus permitted him to become the president because the governing body was full of such fakes and Jezebel was teaching people to become such. But Henschel repented to some extent and resigned from being the president on 2000Heshvan4/5. He died on 2002Veadar12/13. His resignation was fudged by the appointment of Don Adams as a ceremonial president with no presidential authority. so the whole procedure looked like the end of the role of the presidency. But it was also the repentance of Milton who accepted that he was not a 1NC saint. So he did conquer and will be arrayed in white outer garments and will not have his name rubber out of the book of life. but in his case the book is actually of the CRC not of the ARC.

5 He that conquers will thus be arrayed in white outer garments [declared righteous either in the flesh or in the spirit]; and I will by no means blot out his name from the book of life [the book of those sealed who have passed a salvation test], but I will make acknowledgment of his name before my Father and before his angels [his salvation covenant name] (Revelation 3).

Gordon Pointed out on 1994Adar7, that Milton Henschel was dead judicially and therefore not a 1NC saint

Milton is the Egyptian whom Gordon killed and later buried in the sand, by his two letters of 1994Adar17 and 1994Tammuz9 respectively. The sand is not such a bad place to be, for as such by the seashore are the seed of Abraham, the true seed. The next guy who Gordon spots fighting is AOL, the Angel of Laodicea..

12 So he turned this way and that and saw there was nobody in sight. Then he struck the Egyptian down and hid him in the sand.
13 However, he went out on the following day and here there were two Hebrew men [ES2 and WSS2, the Watchtower administration and the Laodicean administration] struggling with each other. So he said to the one in the wrong: Why should you strike your companion?
14 At this he said: Who appointed you as a prince and judge over us? [This is a binary question. The answer literally is non one as yet. The answer in the greater meaning is Jesus]  Are you intending to kill me just as you killed the Egyptian? [This is another binary question. The literal answer was yes. The greater answer is no. Gordon killed Milton angelically by pointing out the Jesus said that he was dead. Gordon does not kill the Laodicean Administration to Adam - Jesus did that on 2012Sivan14!] Moses now got afraid and said: Surely the thing has become known! (Exodus 2).

Philadelphia

7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia [AOP] [Meaning: Brotherly Love], write: These things says the holy [one], the truthful [one], the [one] having "the key of David," "the [one] opening, and no one shuts; and shutting, and no one opens:" [Isaiah. 22:22] [a quadruple designation. Perfect for Gordon, who discovered this element of the bible code - see code#c6b]

7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia [AOP], write: These things says the holy [one], the truthful [one], the [one] having "the key of David," "the [one] opening, and no one shuts; and shutting, and no one opens:" [These are the calls into the spirit covenants, for the administration of the Kingdom - the meaning of the parable of the vineyard workers - see U192]
8 I know your works. Behold, I have given a door being opened before you [into the 4EC, AOP is Elijah4], and no one is able to shut it [whereas the door in verse 7 can be shut. However the LW Exedenic Times blocked the 4EC doorway for 7 years from 2012Sivan15 to 2019Sivan15, whilst the 4 apostles were bound upon the Euphrates of Revelation9], for you have a little power [some understanding of the bible code]  and have kept my word, and have not denied my name [my 2NC name. Whereas FDS3 did deny the 2NC] .
9 Behold, I give out of the synagogue of Satan those saying themselves to be Judaean [ones], and they are not, but they lie. Behold, I will make them come and bow down before your feet, and they shall know that I loved you (Revelation 3 GLT)

9 Look! I am giving out of the synagogue of the Satan, [out] of the (ones) saying themselves Judaean [ones] to be, and not they are but they are lying [1x+2x.2x+2x+2x], - look! I shall make them [1x] in order that they will come [1x] and they will do obeisance [1x] in-the face-of/before the feet of you [10x], and they should know that I loved you [1x]. (Revelation 3 KIT)

(1x+2x.2x+2x+2x).(1x+1x+10x+1x) = 9x.13x = 117x. These would run from 2019Sivan11, the start of the 3rd presence of the Christ, when he can start to make people do things, to 2019Tishri8, when they start to come? All the saints arrive by 2019Tishri9. So these ones must fail either the spiritual virginity test,. or must have defiled themselves with women or were fake saints all along. All the JW saints leave Egypt by 2019Elul14, the start of the Great Tribulation of Matthew24, which is 430 years a month for a day from 2005Iyyar14, when the Watchtower fell as a true church and became Egypt. 

10 Because you kept the word about my endurance, I will also keep you from the hour of test, which is to come upon the whole inhabited earth, to put a test upon those dwelling on the earth [rapturing all the saints into the ark from 2019Tishri1-14 before the Mark of the Beast test begins on 2019Tishri16, the last day of the 42 days of WW3, a day for a tooth of the Russian bear].
11 I am coming quickly. Keep on holding fast what you have, that no one may take your crown [woops - too late for that. AOP, Gordon, Elijah4, the 2NC mediator, baptised Roger Knight transitively and he founded Laodicea, who took the 2nd half of the 2nd presence and POL declared himself to be the mediator of the 2NC].
12 'The one that conquers -- I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God, and he will by no means go out [from it] anymore, and I will write upon him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which descends out of heaven from my God, and that new name of mine.
13 Let the one who has an ear hear what the spirit says to the congregations.' (Revelation 3 NWT)

The key of David, is the key to the Kingship of the Kingdom on earth, for David started the genetic line of earthly kings over God's people and received the covenant of salt:

20 I have found David my servant, With my holy oil I have anointed him,

27 Also, I myself shall place him as firstborn, The most high of the kings of the earth.
28 To time indefinite I shall preserve my loving-kindness toward him, And my covenant will be faithful to him.
29 And I shall certainly set up his seed forever And his throne as the days of heaven

34 I shall not profane my covenant, And the expression out of my lips I shall not change.
35 Once I have sworn in my holiness, To David I will not tell lies.
36 His seed itself will prove to be even to time indefinite, And his throne as the sun in front of me (Psalm 89)

5 Is it not for you to know that Jehovah the God of Israel himself gave a kingdom to David over Israel to time indefinite, to him and to his sons, by a covenant of salt? (2 Chronicles 13:5).

The Key of David is the Key to his Kingship which is the key to the temple of the 2nd New Covenant saints who have a covenant to be kings of the Kingdom of God on earth. Now Jesus opened the door to this temple on 2000Tishri2 - see U42, and Gordon informed the Watchtower in 1994Heshvan, 5 years early - see history11. The sanctification from heaven of the second new covenant saints began on 2000Tishri2 and  ended on 2012Ab20 - see U42. But after this heavenly sanctification of the 2NC FRC, we have the earthly sanctification of the 2NC OMC Kings of the Benjamin call, from 2019Tishri11 to 2019Adar5 - the gestation period of a mountain goat of Job39:1,2 and the hand of Peter of Acts3  - 5 months - and 144 cubits of Revelation20 both a man's measure and an angels, a day for a cubit, ending 318/2 trained men of Abram of Genesis14 before the end of hiding for Adam on 2020Ab14..

Revelation 3:7 quotes Isaiah 22, which describes the forcible removal of authority from Shebna and its giving to Eliakim

15 So says the Lord Jehovah of Hosts, Go! Go to this treasurer [Financially oriented Evil Slave], to Shebna [meaning vigour or growth - good evangelists as FDS3. But then they fell and became ES2] who [is] over the house [The Watchtower].
16 What is to you here? And who is here to you, that you have carved a tomb for yourself here, [as] one having cut out his tomb on high, having carved out a home for himself in the rock? [Brooklyn Heights?]
17 Behold, Jehovah hurls you with a hurling, O man, and grasps you with a grasping.
18 Whirling, He will whirl you [like] a ball, into a land wide of hands. You shall die there, and there are the chariots of your glory, the shame of your lord's house.
19 And I will drive you from your position, and he will pull you from your station. (Isaiah 22 GLT)

20 And in that day it shall be, even I will call to My servant Eliakim [Meaning God raises or sets up] [FDS4] the son of Hilkiah [My portion is Jehovah] [Gordon, Elijah4, AOP].
21 And I will clothe him with your robe and will fasten your sash on him. And I will give your authority into his hand [5 months from 2019Tammuz24, when the Watchtower is overturned 40 days of Jonah after 2019Sivan14, the completed first Watchtower Passover, and from 2019Tammuz26, the end of the 5211 day missed Sabbath payback period from 2005Iyyar14, to 2019Chislev21, when the descended 3rd Holy Spirit is installed over the 2NCs in Zoar]. And he shall be a father to the [ones] living in Jerusalem and to the house of Judah [through the 4EC].
22 And the key of the house of David I will lay on his shoulder, so that he opens, and no one shuts; and he shuts, and no one opens [the Manasseh, Ephraim and Benjamin calls into the 2NC].
23 And I will drive him [as] a nail/peg in a sure/lasting place; and he shall be for a throne of glory to his father's house.
24 And they shall hang on him all the glory of his father's house, the offspring and the offshoots, all small vessels, from vessels of cups even to all vessels of jars.
25 In that day, says Jehovah of Hosts, the nail/peg that is driven in the sure/lasting place shall be removed [into the ark by rapture], and be cut down [dying to Adam and then being resurrected non adamically], and fall [over the 1NCs and lose the 2nd part of the 2nd presence to Laodicea]. And the burden that [was] on it shall be cut off. Jehovah has spoken. (Isaiah 22 GLT)

But a nail into a lasting place sounds like impaling the Christ. Is this a cryptic reference to a. Shoulder means 'work', 'responsibility'. This key to the house of David, is to the secular administration of the Kingdom upon mount Zion. So it is for the Manasseh, Ephraim and Benjamin calls into the 2NC. This door is opened by Eliakim who is FDS4, and is the son of Hilkiah, who is Gordon. 

Gordon's ex-girlfriend in the truth (the JWs) correctly worked out the date of Armageddon for herself based on 1 Timothy 2:6 'Who gave himself a corresponding ransom for all'. She reasoned that Adam must have sinned aged 33½, the age when Jesus died, from the corresponding ransom. Adam's sin being the start of Satan's 6,000 year lease (we thought), (he was born on 4027Tishri2). She was a clever girl. She got this before Gordon did, she fed him in fact. She must be in the 'Wide awake John class'! Like the prophet said:

17 And in the last days, God says, I shall pour out some of my spirit upon every sort of flesh. And your sons and your daughters will prophesy. And your young men will see visions and your old men will dream dreams. 
18 And even upon my men slaves and my women slaves I will pour out some of my spirit in those days, and they will prophesy (Acts 2 - quoting Joel 2:28,29).

Sadly, Sharon would probably never admit to having done this now. Because as any male reader will know, when you first go out with a girl everything that you do is totally brilliant, and then when you finish with her everything that you ever did was absolute rubbish, until such time as you go out with her again that is (if you ever do). Actually her father has had six incorrect attempts so far at the date of the end  - he told Gordon - a serious speculator. Anyway she once told Gordon about a chap (not her father) who was disfellowshipped because he thought that Isaiah 22 and the removing of Shebna from being the steward over the house, and his replacement with the servant Eliakim, referred to the fall of the FDS and its replacement with a new FDS.

He was spreading this doctrine among the congregation. In fact even if he had been wrong, this still would not have been a sin, so long as he was only discussing it for research purposes. It would have been a sin had he been spreading it in order to cause division. He wasn't spreading this doctrine outside the congregation. He is entitled to his opinion, and he is entitled to share it with his baptised brothers - only as fellow researchers. But he should not preach it to non-believers as if it was the society's doctrine, and neither should he broadcast it within the congregation. So he should not necessarily have been disfellowshipped even had he been wrong, unless he was using this prophecy to incorrectly undermine the authority of the FDS at that particular time, thereby constituting himself leaven. He may well have been doing that, we do not know. We suspect he was merely acting as a prophet of the eventual downfall of the FDS, and like their forefathers did to the prophets of old, the spiritual Jews killed him. But as it happens he was absolutely right! 

The comparison of Isaiah22 with Revelation3 reveals that Eliakim is the new FDS. Hence the reference to the old FDS as the synagogue of Satan (Revelation 3:9). So today you are being told that God has extracted vengeance on behalf of that perspicacious lover of the truth, who was thrown out of 'the truth' by hypocrites. And now those who disfellowshipped him whether in error or not, are themselves disfellowshipped, and there is no error in their case. He is welcome in the congregation of Philadelphia, which will be known as 'the life' and so is Sharon for that matter and her speculating father, and the reader. 

But there is more:

9 Look! I will give those from the synagogue of Satan who say they are Jews and yet are not but are lying - Look! I will make them come and do obeisance at your feet, and make them know that I have loved you / I loved you [aorist tense] (Revelation 3).

Gordon has always wished that this last phrase was in the present tense. But really he is being too sensitive. It is a relative love. Jesus loved Gordon more than those in the synagogue of Satan whilst they were in that synagogue. But when they join the LWs, he will love us both the same. It is just like the true God said through Malachi:

2...But I was loving Jacob [imperfect tense for incomplete actions in the past] 
3  And Esau I hated [perfect tense for completed action sin the past] (Malachi 1)

17 You must not hate your brother in your heart. You should by all means reprove your associate, that you may not bear sin along with him (Deuteronomy 19).

15 Everyone who hates his brother is a manslayer, and you know that no manslayer has everlasting life remaining in him (1 John 3).

26 If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own soul, he cannot be my disciple (Luke 14)

This does not mean that you should hate your brother absolutely, since that would make you into a manslayer according to John. It means that you must put him second to Jesus. You must be impervious to your brother's feelings if they are preventing you from serving God. However even though you ignore your brother's feelings if they are a hindrance to your worship, you still must actually love him. So God loved Esau unconditionally as a son but he ignored this feeling, and hated him conditionally over the matter of the firstborn rights. So you can love unconditionally whilst hating conditionally. Perhaps this is unconditional family love storge combined with conditional principled hate (anti agape - anti agape). A hate which does not overstep the bounds of righteousness and is temporary whilst the wound is painful. 

God's love is unbreakable and everlasting. He loves all of us forever. He always has a default amount of love for all of us. But that love is occasionally swamped by a short burst of hate, which is time limited and ends. Hence the usage of the perfect tense. 

Laodicea

14 And to the angel of the congregation in Laodicea [AOL] [Meaning: People of judgement] [AOL, who was baptised by 'Roger Knight', who was baptised by Elijah4 on 616 2002] [the congregation of the JW-LWs in the Watchtower. The angel must be a 2NC king since Laodicea was a true congregation of the LWs] write: These [things] says the Amen [the one who made it all so], the witness, the faithful and the true [one], the beginning of the creation of God [the first created God. Like begets like so creation is not complete until divinity is achieved. Jesus describes himself with a triple designation. Whereas he describes himself with a quadruple designation in the counsel to Philadelphia. Because Laodicea is the little brother of Philadelphia in decoded understandings - being spies upon them - see U360],

Laodicea and Zoar were the beginning of the recreation, the non adamic kingdom creation of God. We died to Adam on 2012Sivan14 and were resurrected non adamically on 2012Sivan15. We completed the transformation on 2012Sivan16 - see U108. Jesus describes himself as the faithful and true witness. This description relates to the angel of Laodicea (AOL). He was in fact two witnesses, the adamic witness and the non adamic witness. And Laodicea is appointed twice as a true church!

14 And to the angel of the congregation in Laodicea write: These are the things that the Amen says, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation by God,
15 'I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were cold or else hot.
16 So, because you are lukewarm and neither hot nor cold, I am going to vomit you out of my mouth.
17 Because you say: I am rich and have acquired riches and do not need anything at all, but you do not know you are miserable and pitiable and poor and blind and naked,
18 I advise you to buy from me gold refined by fire that you may become rich, and white outer garments that you may become dressed and that the shame of your nakedness may not become manifested, and eyesalve to rub in your eyes that you may see.
19 'All those for whom I have affection I reprove and discipline. Therefore be zealous and repent.
20 Look! I am standing at the door and knocking. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into his [house] and take the evening meal with him and he with me.
21 To the one that conquers I will grant to sit down with me on my throne, even as I conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne.
22 Let the one who has an ear hear what the spirit says to the congregations.' (Revelation 3 NWT)

For the interpretation please see U151

Him that conquers and the one that has an ear

7 Let the one who has an ear hear what the spirit says to the congregations: To him that conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God (Revelation 2).

11 Let the one who has an ear hear what the spirit says to the congregations: He that conquers will by no means be harmed by the second death (Revelation 2).

17 Let the one who has an ear hear what the spirit says to the congregations: To him that conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white pebble, and upon the pebble a new name written which no one knows except the one receiving it (Revelation 2).

26 And to him that conquers and observes my deeds down to the end. I will give authority over the nations
27 and he shall shepherd the people with an iron rod so that they will be broken to pieces like clay vessels, the same as I have received from my Father
28 and I will give him the morning star.
29 Let the one who has an ear hear what the spirit says to the congregations (Revelation 2).

5 He that conquers will thus be arrayed in white outer garments; and I will by no means blot out his name from the book of life, but I will make acknowledgment of his name before my Father and before his angels.
6 Let the one who has an ear hear what the spirit says to the congregations (Revelation 3).

12 The one that conquers--I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God, and he will by no means go out [from it] anymore, and I will write upon him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which descends out of heaven from my God, and that new name of mine.
13 Let the one who has an ear hear what the spirit says to the congregations (Revelation 3).

He that has an ear is the slave of the high priest, the one whose ear was cut off by Peter, Malchus:

10 Then Simon Peter, as he had a sword, drew it and struck the slave of the high priest and cut his right ear off. The name of the slave was Malchus [meaning king] (John 18).

It's an amusing symbolism. The High Priest is now Jesus, his slave with one ear is FDS3 and presumably FDS4 too. Those with an ear are those in the Jehovah's Witnesses. He that conquers is the one that understands, using his other ear presumably, that these 7 congregations are consecutive, successive, and therefore joins the Lords' Witnesses, FDS4. He will then get all of the benefits described above.
