Here is the wording of the covenant that Jesus made with the 11 remaining apostles, Judas having left...
29 and I make a covenant with you, just as my Father has made a covenant with me, for a kingdom,
30 that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones to judge the twelve tribes of Israel (Luke 22).
This is a really strange wording for the 1NC. 'My Kingdom' is Jesus' Kingdom, it is not the Kingdom of God. But Jesus is the king of the heavenly part of the Kingdom of God. This Kingdom started on 2008Nisan22 at his first marriage to the first presence 1NCs. Jesus had a 6,000 year headlease on Adam due to his agreement to ransom him. These years ran from 3993Nisan14 to 2008Nisan14. so Jesus began his Sabbath from that lease on 2008Nisan14.
Mind you having married the first presence half of the 3rd Holy Spirit (the first presence 1NCs) they were then appointed/installed to rule as sacred king from heaven (as high priest, as Aaron) on 2008Iyyar20/Tammuz9 (2nd after the 2nd Holy Spirit). So he did not put his feet up for long!
The 1NC saints eat and drink at Jesus' table in his kingdom. And they sit on thrones to judge the 12 tribes of Israel in the next system (they meaning with Judas replaced by Matthias).
It is so important to realise that we cannot all sit on throne to judge the 12 tribes of Israel (the sons by water baptism of the 12 2NC apostles, the priests of the Kingdom and presumably the citizens under the care of each priest). Some of us actually have to be in those tribes rather than sitting upon the thrones. So it is absolutely absurd for everyone in a church to drink the cup of the 1NC. For the entire church is thereby declaring themselves to be heavenly Kings of the Kingdom of God.
But what does Jesus mean by: Eat and drink at my table?
Well Jesus had just had a lovely physical meal with lovely physical drink at a lovely physical table with his friends. It was a great occasion for all of them marred only marginally and only temporarily by Judas and his exit.
But Jesus knew that he would never again be able to have his friends round to dinner on the planet earth. So he was understandably sad, being the image of his father who is the very definition of love and therefore of hospitality. God never trashes love like we humans do when we misperceive such an act to be in our narrow and temporary self interest. Jesus wanted to be able to have dinner with his friends for ever, just as any human today would wish to do. So he phrased the new covenant in a way that reflected his loving heart's desire. He effectively said: Look, this is the last time we will all sit round a table and enjoy good food and wine together as a group on the planet, but do not think that this is the last time we will all sit round a table and enjoy good food and wine together.
His father and he were surely going to arrange that Jesus and his 12 disciples (Judas being replaced with Matthias) would sit round a table eating and drinking for a thousand years together. It is our job therefore to determine what the greater meaning of eating and drinking is and what the greater table is.
The naive and incorrect interpretation prevalent in many churches is that spiritual food is bible knowledge. The trouble with this interpretation is that it leaves no room for spiritual drink! The thing to remember is that the drink was passed from one to another at the last supper whereas the bread was taken individually. Of course this was a physiological symbolism since the blood, which the wine represents, flows round the body, which the bread represents, and not vice versa. But we can deduce more from this famous and wonderful scene. For the apostle John wrote:
3 This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ (John 17).
14 Whoever drinks from the water that I will give him will never get thirsty at all, but the water that I will give him will become in him a fountain of water bubbling up to impart everlasting life (John 4).
Now one cannot live for long physically without drink, any one cannot begin to live spiritually, without knowledge of God and of his son. But this drink that imparts life becomes a fountain which bubbles up and waters other people. So the drink stands for spiritual information that is shared, it is passed around. But the food stands for spiritual information that is digested and broken down personally. Food does not bubble up into a fountain. So spiritual food is experience, because experience is totally personal. You can tell your friends about your experiences, but that just gives them knowledge it does not give them experience. Experience cannot be passed on, it can only be experienced!
So spiritual food is practical experience of both good and bad and spiritual drink is accurate knowledge of good and bad. The food is putting into practice the knowledge. The table is the environment in which the knowledge and the experiences are shared and gained. We presently eat from Satan's table down here for the most part. Knowledge without experience is useless. It is one thing to know the rules of football, it is another thing entirely to actually play the game for a few hours.
So Jesus was telling his 11 beloved apostles that they would share knowledge together and gain experience together in his Kingdom. They would work as a team and co-operate in love on the same project, namely the salvation of a few billion humans. So now we can understand what Jesus meant when he said...
11 But I tell you that many from eastern parts and western parts will come and recline at the table with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of the heavens;
12 whereas the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the darkness outside. There is where [their] weeping and the gnashing of [their] teeth will be (Matthew 8).
All humans on earth in the Kingdom of God, the covenant sons of the patriarchs, will share experiences with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. But the sons of the Kingdom, the genetic sons of the patriarchs, will (in large number) be weeping without eyes and gnashing without teeth in Gehenna as they watch and learn how to behave but cannot interfere.
It seems like such an innocuous little scripture. But it is so powerful. Firstly the 1NC saints sit upon thrones to judge. So they are Kings, and Judges. Secondly they eat and drink at Jesus' table. This table is a heavenly environment, so they are angels. Thirdly they judge only the 12 tribes of Israel, so the entire Kingdom of God must be split into 12 tribes, because there is no one who escapes their judgement. WE have stated that the 12 tribes are the sons by water baptism of the 12 2NC apostles and those 1AC citizens to whom said sons acts a priests.
We know from Revelation14 that there are to be 144,000 1NC Kings, 144,000 2NC FRC Josephic Kings and 144,000 2NC LRC Benjamite Kings. the administrative structure of each of the 144,000 Kingdom in the Kingdom of God is as follows...
2NC FRC King
2NC OMC King
10 HLC Overlords
10 ELC Overlords
100 HLC Underlords
100 ELC Underlords
50,000 FRCs approx 50,000 OMCs approx
For more see U218.
We shall discover in section I35 that there is a Second New Covenant for those who sit on thrones to judge the 12 tribes of Israel down here on earth in the Kingdom of God. And there are 12 apostles in the Lord's witnesses, the church of that covenant, the 2NC. But things do not stop there. For there are then to be a further 144,000 2Nc Kings who are LRC sealed rather than FRC sealed and who reign of the sons of the LRC rather than the sons of the FRC.
So there is a one to one correspondence between everyone in the 1NC and every FRC King in the 2NC and every LRC King in the 2NC. This is not a coincidence. It is because we shall all operate in trios (trinities even).
The pre-adamic children before the Garden of Eden, had two angelic parents and two surrogate human parents. So the same may be true of some of the born again post adamic children of the Kingdom of God, the second Eden - see I5.
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 (Revelation 3).
So Jesus sits together with God on a double throne, ruling over all the angels and the whole heavens. Then Jesus sits with the 1NC saints on his double throne ruling over the kingdom of God, the humans and ex humans. Then each 2NC FRC king sits with a 2NC LRC King and with a 1NC king on a triple throne ruling over one of the 144,000 kingdoms of the kingdom of God.
The 12 heavenly apostles of the 1NC are the angelic fathers of the 12 earthly apostles of the 2NC, who are the father of the 12 4EC tribes. Each tribe has 12,000 further transdimensional royal families if you like, comprising one heavenly King and two earthly kings per family. And then there are 10x or 100x as many Lords (administrators) as there are Kings. All the Lords are saints. But not all the Lords are sealed into the ARC. They are the noble families, the courtiers if you like. Then in addition to these there are billions of human citizens resurrected under the FRC and the LRC and hundreds of millions of human priests resurrected under the CRC. But everyone resurrected into the Kingdom of God will be in one of the 12 tribes.
The Nation of Israel in the promised land which was the archetype for the Kingdom of God in the promised paradise had 12 tribes. And everyone was in one or other of these tribes. So the Kingdom of God will likewise have 12 tribes, and everyone in it will be in one of those tribes.
28 Jesus said to them: Truly I say to you, In the re-creation, when the Son of man sits down upon his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also yourselves sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
29 And everyone that has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands for the sake of my name will receive many times more and will inherit everlasting life (Matthew 19).
Yes, these royal families, the members of whom Jesus was referring to in Matthew 19, will have so many brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands it will be unbelievable for us poor humans who are used to working all our lives in order that might acquire the freehold of just one little house.
Now we know that the first new covenant saints are special, being Jesus' wife. And they are to become angels since they have to go back to his place to live with him in heaven.
They rule as kings for 1,000 years...
4 And I saw thrones, and there were those who sat down on them, and power of judging was given them [1NC kings].
Yes, I saw the souls of those beheaded [not beheaded souls!] due to the witness of/to Jesus and due to the word of God [beheaded by The Watchtower Governing Body becoming a democracy agreed on 1975May1 (1975Iyyar18/19) and implemented on 1976January1 (1975Tebbeth23/24), with a 2/3 majority like the college of Cardinals in the Catholic church whilst AND all the 2NCs beheaded from Gordon, the mediator of the 2NC, their head, by the Watchtower],
and those who had worshiped neither the wild-beast nor its image and who had not received the mark upon their forehead and upon their hand. And they came to life [The spiritual beast of the Governing Body of the Watchtower?]
and reigned [as 1NC kings and HLC Lords]
with the Christ for 1,000 years [ Reigning as a group through Solomon's temple from 2023Ab5 to 3023Ab14?].
5 The rest of the dead [no one in the Kingdom is first dead. There is no adamic death in the Kingdom. But those resurrected from Hades and those resurrected from Gehenna are second dead, in the sense that they have no angels.] did not come to life [get born again as angels] until the 1,000 years [of the Kingdom of God] were ended. This [the coming to life of the kings of verse 4] the first rapture/rising up/resurrection [anastasij]
6 Happy and holy is anyone [the 1NCs, and the raptured 2NCs. Not the HLCs or the ELCs. Because Lords do not reign. Only Kings reign] having part in the first rapture/rising up/resurrection [anastasij], over these the second death has no authority but they will be priests of God and of the Christ, and will reign with him for the 1,000 years [of the Kingdom under Jehovah from 2023Shebat5/Adar5 and 2024Tammuz5 over Isaac. They are ARC sealed in Holy Spirit, they cannot ever be put into Gehenna, the second death, a shared-soul, a soul-less existence as a spirit - this is the 1NC and 2NC Kings NOT the HLC and ELC Lords] (Revelation 20).
But this rulership does not apply only to 1NC saints. It actually applies to anyone who comes to life, i.e. is born again, in this system. We are all to be kings, in some capacity.
15 This [manifestation] the happy and only Potentate will show in its own appointed times, [he] the King of those who rule as kings and Lord of those who rule as lords (1 Timothy 6).
So in the kingdom there will be Kings who believe it or not rule as kings, and there will be Lords who rule as Lords, underneath the Kings. The Lords are the bureaucrats of the Kingdom of God, may God save us from them! So if everyone in every subcovenant of the JAC, the system covenant of the ARC for the Abrahamic system, is going to be a king, or a lord, then where are all the citizens?
Well as we saw in I28, the citizens are those with faith in God and in goodness, those who obey their consciences, but never find the true religion. And those who find the true religion but never get baptised in holy spirit, never get chosen by the angels, are to be the priests of the Kingdom of God, the equivalent of the Levites in Israel, but not the equivalent of the sons of Aaron.
There is scriptural evidence that even in this system every person with faith, everyone in the 1AC, has an appointed guardian angel...
10 See to it that you men do not despise one of these little ones, for I tell you that their angels in heaven always behold the face of my Father who is in heaven (Matthew 18).
These guardian angels are the heavenly army, rather than the heavenly generals. They must have the job of looking after us in faith and protecting us physically to some extent, and helping us to find the true church.
