When Will
Sickness & Death
Be Removed By Almighty God?

One of the things that makes this particular kingdom "good news" message so amazing, is that, all along scriptural proof for such an astounding message, has been there, right in front of us within God's Holy Word for centuries. In other words, all the answers to our questions are to be found in the bible itself. And then, once the Sacred Oracle or Sacred Pronouncement of God, has been properly explained or interpreted, then all that is required of us at that point, is simply ... faith...a strong faith to believe the things that God has said would come true. Yes, a strong belief that these grand things that God Himself has promised to his people of faith, will indeed come true as promised.

YORWW Congregation Manuscript #1008

Part 1

 

STRONG FAITH NEEDED TO BELIEVE THE GRAND PROMISES OF GOD

 

On that note, remarkably people of faith, actually do not necessarily need to witness or see a miracle, to believe in the Grand Powers of God Himself, if it is clearly promised within God's Word. For example, the YORWW Congregation speaks often of bible prophecies alluding to the miraculous coming of the 200 Million that God will bring into his earthly Kingdom Arrangement in our day and time. Many Jehovah's witnesses, when they hear of such, laugh or scoff at such a thing. They claim that the bible does not teach this, and further that God is NOT going to miraculously gather a specialized number of 200 million individuals for His Name, to replace with the wicked, adulterous Watchtower Society Organization of some 7 million, to enforce His Word found at Matthew 21:43.

Oh yes, we recall these powerful words of Jesus clearly saying:

"This is why I say to you, THE KINGDOM OF GOD will be taken from you and be given to a nation producing its fruits." -- Matthew 21:43

And so we ask, is it really so far-fetched, so unfathomable to believe that Jehovah God is actually going to KEEP HIS ORIGINAL PROMISE as shown above, and literally, remove the wicked, adulterous Watchtower Society Organization of some 7 million, far away from Himself, and send these wicked villains themselves to the "wilderness," and what's more, literally replace them MIRACULOUSLY, yes miraculously with 200 Million people of His Choosing? Is that so far-fetched to believe that Almighty Jehovah God, would indeed do such a thing, we ask? Is this totally out of character for a God who exacts
EXCLUSIVE DEVOTION, one that insists upon such like worship, to do such a thing as recompense to a completely "apostate nation," we ask? (Isaiah 10:6; Nahum 1:2) Honestly, we believe the prophecies, are quite clear that this indeed, no matter how seemingly strange to others, yes, is going to happen by God's Own Hand. -- See Isaiah 5:26-30; Isaiah 65:1, 2; Isaiah 66:18-20; Joel 2:2-6; Ezekiel 20:35-38; Revelation 9:16; Revelation 12:6, 14.

Still, we fully realize that there are ever so many from among God's Name People, yes individuals, who are absolutely convinced that Jehovah God is NOT going to replace the adulterous Watchtower Society Organization, and neither is He going to establish his Kingdom Arrangement, right here on earth, as Jesus promised. -- Matthew 6:10

So then we find among God's Name People, that there are essentially 2 schools of thought. And those 2 schools of thought or viewpoints would be manifested by those that actually
believe these sacred promises of the miraculous coming of the 200 Million of God's Choosing, firstly as in the case of the YORWW Congregation itself, and secondly, in the case of the greater majority of the Jehovah's Witnesses organization, that clearly do not believe such a thing is even possible. What a stark contrast in viewpoints, wouldn't you agree? Therefore based upon the above, we must ask, what essentially separates these two groups, the YORWW believers and their respective most confident viewpoint about the coming 200 Million being a sure reality of the future, from the disbelieving 7 million members of Jehovah's witnesses themselves?

Well, after all is considered, we would have to say what separates the two groups in viewpoint, is the unique quality of faith. Yes, it is faith, strong faith in God's Promises, in His Holy Word.

You see, some from among God's Name People, actually believe the promises of God, as found in the bible, that these are real and sure to come, while others, the vast majority from among the Jehovah's witnesses, simply do not. In fact, we find upon investigation, that basically, most individual Jehovah's witnesses, really only believe in what they can see or visualize...in this case, the organization of 7 million people themselves, serving Jehovah upon earth, and that's it. They only believe what they can see or visualize, namely 7 million as an organization. So then, they believe in or have faith in,
only what they can see with their naked eye...which is 7 million people, regardless of what the bible actually says. And this is true, again because of a lack of faith. -- Hebrews 11:6

In thinking back, recall Jesus explained how it works out for those who have faith, and those who do not by telling of a parable dealing with the "rich man and Lazarus," as found in the book of Luke 16th chapter. In telling this parable, Jesus made a startling admission, about people that do NOT have faith. Let's notice these words:

"Then he said, In that event I ask you, father, to send him to the house of my father, for I have five brothers, in order that he may give them a thorough witness, that they also should not get into this place of torment. But Abraham said, They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to these. Then he said, No, indeed, father Abraham, but
if someone from the dead goes to them they will repent. But he said to him, If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be persuaded if someone rises from the dead." -- Luke 16:27-31


In the above words, Jesus revealed a common misnomer...a common mistake, a common misunderstanding about the effect of miracle being performed before people of no faith. Yes, it is true, most people believe, if God performs a powerful miracle for the people, that the whole world at once, will repent immediately and turn to God and righteousness. Is that what you believe?

However, did you notice what Jesus said above, relative to this matter?

Yes, Jesus said:

"if they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets [God's Word],
neither will they be persuaded if someone rises from the dead."

In other words, Jesus was saying, if a person has God's Word, God's Promises in his midst, and yet he does NOT believe these Grand Promises of God, then neither will he believe if Jehovah performed

a Grand Miracle for his benefit. Yes, in the face of such a grand miracle, still people of no faith, would not believe, nor listen, nor be persuaded to turn to God in righteousness. In other words, the person of non-faith, simply would not "repent," as Jesus said, but would instead, after witnessing a great miracle, remain in UNBELIEF, and further would remain in complete and utter, wickedness. -- Isaiah 26:10

Therefore today, we know, when we speak of the Grand Promises of God as shown from His Holy Word, like the promise of the coming 200 Million, yes, some few of Jehovah's witnesses, will in turn believe these Sacred Promises, while the greater majority, simply will not. And again, that is because some will have genuine faith, and some will not. (Luke 18:8) It becomes exactly as Paul once said,

"...faith is NOT the possession of all people."

        -- 2 Thessalonians 3:2

And that's just a fact that we all have to accept.

 

 

WHAT CAUSES SICKNESS AND DEATH IN OUR DAY AND TIME?

 

Of course, someone could ask,

"...If someone today is a loyal servant of Jehovah and is very sick, do the scriptures indicate Jehovah could move to heal this one, in our day and time, so that this one can continue to do God's work, in good health? Is such a thing possible, in our day and time?"

This is a very good question.

Actually, at
Psalms 41:3, 4 we find a remarkable promise from God. The inspired prophet King David wrote,

"Jehovah himself will sustain him upon a divan of illness; All his bed you will certainly change during his sickness. As for me, I said: O Jehovah, show me favor. Do heal my soul, for I have sinned against you."

Within these verses lies the revealing of a very great mystery, which ultimately will benefit all mankind...greatly. Yes, within the above verses, we can see the vital connection of what actually
causes illness upon mankind and what ultimately will remove it from mankind.

Let's review exactly what King David said again. He said:

"...Do heal my soul, for I have sinned against you."

Did you notice that David connected "sickness" and
possible "healing" from God, to the presence of "sin"?

Did you see this?

Yes, David knew that all "sickness" upon mankind today,

is always, most certainly connected with the presence of "sin" against God's Law...as in our case, the "sin" committed by our progenitors, Adam and Eve.

To dramatize this unique situation, we may recall Jesus used a special situation where he was involved in the "healing" of a paralytic of Israel, to draw attention to this most amazing connection, namely of the presence of "sin" being connected with the dreaded effects of "sickness"

upon us today. Let's consider Mark 2:3-12. It states:

"And men came bringing him a paralytic carried by four. But not being able to bring him right to Jesus on account of the crowd, they removed the roof over where he was, and having dug an opening they lowered the cot on which the paralytic was lying. And when Jesus saw their faith he said to the paralytic:
Child your sins are forgiven. Now there were some of the scribes there, sitting and reasoning in their hearts: why is this man talking in this manner? He is blaspheming. Who can forgive sins except one, God? But Jesus, having discerned immediately by his spirit that they were reasoning that way in themselves, said to them: Why are you reasoning these things in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, your sins are forgiven, or to say, Get up and pick up your cot and walk? But in order for you men to know that the Son of man has authority to forgive sins upon the earth, he said to the paralytic: I say to you, Get up, pick up your cot, and go to your home. at that he did get up, and immediately picked up his cot and walked out in front of them all, so that they were all simply carried away, and they glorified God, saying: We never saw the like of it."

In the above account, Jesus revealed that all sickness itself, is actually the result of mankind's captive state to "sin" ... yes, sin from Adam. Indeed,
Romans 5:12 clearly says:

"That is why, just as through one man [Adam] sin
entered into the world and death through sin, and
thus
death spread to all men because they
had all sinned
."

Also,
Romans 3:23 which says:

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God"
Therefore, since all men are "sinners," then sickness and death, rightfully follows them, all the way up to
the "sinners" death. And finally, at the point of death for the captive "sinner," Paul showed what occurs next by saying:

"For he who has died has been acquitted ["been justified"
NWT Ref. Bible Large Print ftn.] from his sin." -- Romans 6:7


Yes, the "sinner" dies, finally, yes to "square things" with God. When he dies, he finally has been "acquitted" from sin. Yes, he pays for his sinful condition, by death itself...ultimately in God's eyes.

This is the legacy left all mankind, by our first human parents, Adam and Eve. Therefore, if it were not for the magnificent intervention of Jehovah Himself, actually mankind itself would be permanently locked into "death" forever, since the sinner can only pay for his "crime" against Jehovah, by dying himself. In other words, he must give up his earthly life, in order to pay for his life of "sin", which he/she inherited from his "sinner" parents. No doubt, this places mankind in a vicious cycle, where normally speaking, and without supernatural intervention, mankind could not ever, on his own efforts, ever be free of sin, and death.

Thus, it becomes necessarily incumbent upon the Grand Creator Himself, to make a way for Adam's "sinner" offspring, so that they can finally receive the wonderful gift of "life", everlasting life from God Own Hand, by way of a very special provision itself. Yes,
Romans 6:23 says,

"For the wages sin pays is death, but
the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord."

Yes, "God loved the world" so much, so much that He was willing to give up his "only begotten son," Jesus Christ, so these miserable, poor, wretched human descendants of Adam, could finally be free of "sin" and gain "everlasting life," the kind of life that Adam and Eve once enjoyed before transgressing God's Law. --
John 3:16

 

HOW THE GIVING OF DIVINE LAW LEADS TO THE REMOVAL OF SIN AND DEATH

 

Simply put: either Jehovah God is going to become your Ruler, your King, or Death and Sin will become your "king" or "ruler." Think about it.

You see, the remarkable thing about this whole situation with the OVERWHELMING domination and earth wide prevalence of "sickness" and "death" facing us today, is its unique connection to the giving of a Divine "Law" of God to his people ... for example, our first human parents, Adam and Eve.

The Bible tells us Adam and Eve, in the beginning, enjoyed perfect human life from the hand of Jehovah God, with no interference from the ruthless "kings" of Sin and Death, on an everlasting basis in the Garden of Eden. What a wonderful prospect Jehovah held out for them, for life on earth. (Psalms 145:16) In other words, as long as they obeyed God's Divine Law, they would prosper and enjoy perfect human life, completely free of sickness and death. So obedience to God's Divine Law, made all of this possible.

However, we remember this situation did not continue. No, but sometime later, Adam and Eve broke God's Law ... they sinned against God's Law. They became "transgressors" against God's Divine Law. They became "sinners" against God's Law, dismissed from the Garden of Eden, and eventually grew old and finally died.

But nevertheless, Adam and Eve were given a chance, a chance to live a life free from the ruthless, relentless "kings" of Sin and Death. Isn't that true? But of course we recall, they decided to NOT keep that Divine Law, isn't that true? And IMMEDIATELY after they "transgressed" this God-given Divine Law, they were quickly classified as "dead" spiritually-speaking, yes in God's eyes, and subsequently dismissed from Jehovah's Holy "Kingdom" arrangement forevermore, branded as "sinners," only worthy of "death" because of their chosen course. Had you ever thought about that before? -- Genesis 2:17

So the important point can be readily made namely, the
GIVING OF A DIVINE LAW, is crucial to the advent and rulership of the Kings called "Sin" and "Death," who continue to "rule" over mankind today. Indeed, Paul said it best by showing,

"To what end? That, just as SIN RULED AS KING WITH DEATH, likewise also undeserved kindness might rule as king through righteousness with everlasting life in view through Jesus Christ our Lord." -- Romans 5:21

Yes, Paul said that "Sin" actually has "ruled as king WITH death," over mankind...did you notice that? Yes, "Sin" and "Death" actually act as our "KINGS"...our rulers, ever since Adam and Eve were evicted from being members of God's Kingdom in the Garden of Eden. Did you know this?

But now, for the real shocker. The big point that even the Watchtower Society and its illustrious leaders can't comprehend...and that is this:

If Jehovah were to decide to authorize another kingdom, yes, another kingdom government to be put into place....why yes, even the giving of another Divine Law Covenant to His people, then the relentless "kings" of Sin and Death....rule no more over this Blessed People, forevermore. Did you know this?

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

That's right, if Jehovah God decided to
resurrect his original Kingdom Government, that was visible upon the planet earth during the time of Adam and Eve, and if Jehovah decided to grant the giving of another Divine Law to His People, just as he did originally with Adam and Eve, did you know that these individuals who were invited into this Grand Law System, would be free of the relentless "kings" of "Sin" and "Death,"...did you know this?

Actually, the Watchtower Society does not know this...and neither does 7 million Jehovah's witnesses themselves. But the "Chieftain," the Modern Day "Servant" who feeds upon Sacred "Bread" in the "East Gate," yes this one does know this. (Ezekiel 44:3) Yes, this has been told by God to His Chieftain, in the "East Gate," that mankind can once again be free of these relentless "kings" of "Sin" and Death," which ultimately brings upon mankind so much "sickness," that we see prevalent in the world today. This is an amazing thought, don't you agree?

To prove this point, let's examine the following verses. Let's consider
Romans 5:13, 14, which says:

"For until the [Mosaic] Law sin was in the world, but sin is not charged against anyone when there is no law. Nevertheless, death ruled as king from Adam down to Moses [or the giving of a Divine Law], even over those who had not sinned after the likeness of the transgression by Adam, who bears a resemblance to him that was to come."

Did you notice in the above verses, the hidden truth that "death" (and "sin") only ruled as "king" from "Adam down to the Moses," or specifically the giving of a Divine Law ... did you notice that?

(To get a detailed discussion of
Romans 5:13, 14, Please see the article entitled: Romans 5:13, 14 Promises Grand Blessings For God's Kingdom.)

(A Challenge To Jehovah's Witnesses & Other Religious Organizations: If you ask Jehovah's Witnesses or members of any other religious organization for that matter, about the meaning of this bible text you will discover, they will have a particularly difficult time or problem trying to explain Romans 5:13, 14 to you. In fact, they can't explain it. Did you know this? Indeed, we've noted the churches and religious organizations of our time, amazingly have NO REASONABLE EXPLANATION WHATSOEVER, for these very important verses cited above. No, they simply cannot explain it. Ask them ... and see for yourself. Think about it.)

Yes, when Jehovah God extends his Great Generosity toward a special group of people, and decides within Himself that He wishes to establish an EARTHLY KINGDOM GOVERNMENT ARRANGEMENT, and new COVENANT ARRANGEMENT with them, just like He had in the Garden of Eden, then guess what...Jehovah is now offering to REMOVE these relentless "kings" of "Sin" and "Death," also. Again, did you know this?
