Academy Rules For 90-Day Online Bible Study Course
ACADEMY RULE 1:
Do You Have Your Own Personal Copy Of The "Report" Book Volume I?
Just as one would need his or her own personal copy of a college textbook when attending an institution of higher learning like a college or university, the same would be true of ALL who wish to participate in the Special Online Bible Study Course featured at the YORWW Bible Academy [YBA].
This means ALL STUDENTS wishing to enroll in LWF for the 90-Day Bible Study Program, after completing their studies with us at either SingNewSong or CrossingEuphrates Discussion Boards, must obtain their own personal copy of the school's textbook called The "Report" Volume I, before being accepted in the 90-Day Program at LWF. You must understand this, with no exceptions. (Those with special financial needs can write us at ASKYORWW@yahoo.com for immediate assistance in obtaining the book.) Indeed, this publication, we feel, has been lovingly provided by the YORWW Bible Academy [YBA] at a very nominal cost so that all could reasonably "afford" it. (Please see Leviticus 12:8; Ezekiel 46:7; Acts 11:29; Additionally, for more information on this topic, please see the article entitled: Showing Proper Appreciation For Divine Truth.)
To be sure, by having your own personal copy of the YORWW Academy's textbook (The "Report" Book Volume I.) BEFORE you start the special 90-Day Bible Study Course at LWF, assures all students in attendance have the necessary background information to participate freely with the instructors and students present, on each topic of study under consideration. To be sure, the book provides much greater details of our special message, than is shown on our discussion boards. So then please keep in mind, it is a requirement for all students and participants on the 90-Day Online Bible Study Program at LWF, to have their own personal copy of this book before they enroll.
ACADEMY RULE 2:
How Should We View Written Materials And Essays Taken From The YORWW Bible Academy?
When one is accepted as a member of the YORWW Bible Academy, one of the first things we respectfully ask all Student-Cadets here at LWF is to, NOT send printed articles from Living Waters Forum out to persons of interest who are not Academy Members as of yet. This is mainly because we feel the average Jehovah's Witness or person of interest needs special preparation to fully understand and digest this unusual written material. After all, you personally took the initiative and made the effort to join Sing New Song yourself, isn't that true? Also, you were a registered member of SNS, JT or CE discussion boards for some time, getting to know the YORWW Staff, before being admitted at LWF for the 90-Day Course, isn't that true? Also, no doubt you had much opportunity to ask many questions and read many articles while at SNS, JT or CE Discussion Boards, before being admitted to LWF, right? Therefore whether you realize it or not, you were especially prepared for the articles and subject matter at YORWW Academy, as SNS, JT and CE Discussion Boards are actually PREP CLASSES, yes preparatory classes especially for LWF. See the point? Yes, this is true.
Likewise in displaying "Christian" empathy for others, we wouldn't want to stumble our brothers, by giving them information that they were ill-prepared for, information they possibly "couldn't bear" as Jesus said, if told all at once, remember? (John 16:12; Matt. 18:7) And so, we respectfully ask that you follow the same wise advice of Jesus, in this instance, yes follow the provided counsel and guidelines for new Student-Cadets, and NOT share the in-depth information found at LWF with friends or relatives because we remember, the YORWW Bible Academy is actually a PRIVATE forum. In other words, why don't you let them join the YORWW Bible Academy for themselves...yes that would be the best thing you could do for them. Yes, invite them to join the YORWW Bible Academy [YBA] themselves.
Therefore believe it or not, following simple instructions like these, could prove to be a person's first great test of giving a "listening ear" while on LWF. This shows, how well one truly listens to provided guidance or instructions. So the question will be in your personal case: Will you personally comply and follow the guidelines or instructions given you by the LWF Administration Staff on this matter? Please keep in mind, all of this again, shows whether you are a good listener or not, yes, whether you are future "priestly" material or not, based upon how well you listen during your 90-day Stay here with us at LWF Discussion Board. (Leviticus 8:22-24) Remember, you individually, yes your personal attitudes and actions are being "graded" right now for future fitness into the Kingdom of God, as we speak. -- Isaiah 48:17, 18; Hosea 4:6; Malachi 2:5-7; Matthew 16:27
Actually, in time you may notice your past conduct, learning skills developed, and Godly qualities acquired at your local kingdom hall over the years in fact, will have an effect upon your rate of progress with us at the YORWW Academy. Remember, as Jesus said: "Pay attention to how you listen." This is good advice! -- Luke 8:18
No doubt, you will find the bible instruction here at LWF to be very different from what you received in your local kingdom hall. Actually you will find the standards and requirements here, are much higher in fact. And because of the high requirements set here at the YORWW Congregation, most Jehovah's witnesses regrettably will simply NOT qualify for such a high calling. No, but we realize Jehovah God has deliberately set VERY HIGH standards for the establishment of "New Jerusalem" upon earth today, to keep all undesirables or individuals of NON-faith out of His Holy City. In so doing, Jehovah Himself keeps His Grand Promise to completely cleanse EARTHLY Jerusalem of all wicked or unclean ones, once and for all. -- See Isaiah 35:8-10; Isaiah 52:1; Ezekiel 20:35-38; Revelation 21:8, 27; Revelation 22:14, 15.
Indeed we remember, Jesus did say, "exert [Greek: agonizomai] yourselves vigorously," did he not? With this thought in mind, to enter New Jerusalem, one would have to "exert" oneself or "AGONIZE" to enter God's Kingdom on earth, the YORWW Congregation itself. Of course, we realize that any who are not willing to "agonize" to enter God's Kingdom, as Jesus recommended, will simply not make it. That is an irrefutable fact. -- Luke 13:24
ACADEMY RULE 3:
Special 90-Day Bible Education Program Implemented For All Registered Members At LWF!
The YORWW Bible Academy: Its Curriculum and Standards For Admission
As you know, this discussion board has been prepared, approved and sponsored by the YORWW Congregation itself. Indeed, you will clearly notice, the members of the YORWW Congregation ALL serve as "Administrators" and "Moderators" of the "Living Waters" Forum Discussion Board.
Therefore, please be informed, this particular discussion board APPROPRIATELY, discusses primarily the beliefs and teachings of the YORWW Congregation in detail, and dutifully explore further how these viewpoints of bible interpretation, relate to those taught by the Watchtower Society and Jehovah's Witnesses, numbering over eight (8) million within over 120,000 congregations worldwide. Thus, it is to be expected that the YORWW Congregation (and LWF Administration thereof) would appropriately determine all subject matter (topics) to be discussed at all times, and further to what extent this particular subject matter should be pursued, as would be expected within a normal, classroom setting. -- 1 Corinthians 1:10
Simply put, the YORWW Bible Academy "CURRICULUM" we believe, has been established and is set, for all students who agree to attend for INCREASED knowledge and learning of bible prophecy itself. (Proverbs 9:9) Therefore at YBA, it is NOT our purpose to invite individuals of other religious persuasion such as, clergymen, Doctors of Divinity, and/or noted individuals of learning from the field of theology, to explain biblical matters to us, as it is quite obvious their teachings are flawed, erroneous and bring great reproach upon Our Grand Creator. Instead, we know God's Word makes clear, Divine Truth will be given to Jehovah's "Chieftain" and only him, as special "bread" in the "East Gate" of God's Temple of today. Indeed, it is from this source, God's Holy Temple Arrangement, that "living, healing waters" of Divine Truth will flow to all mankind for their benefit. -- See Ezekiel 44:3; Ezekiel 47:1-12; Revelation 22:1, 2; Genesis 22:18.
At YBA, we maintain the candid viewpoint that, since we have taken on the weighty responsibility to open this discussion board ourselves to the public, and to maintain it, and further to finance it with our own money, time and expertise, then we are sure you can fully appreciate why we have taken the view of things that we have to completely operate this discussion board, as we see fit. And we know you can understand that fact.
In fact we recall, Jesus once said to his disciples relative to this point,
"Did you get the sense of all these things? They said to him: Yes. Then he said to them: That being the case, every PUBLIC INSTRUCTOR ["learned person," see fnt NWT Lg Prt], when taught respecting the kingdom of the heavens, is like a man, a householder who brings out of his treasure store things new and old." -- Matthew 13:51, 52
In the above setting, Jesus reminded his disciples and all those of the Jewish Nation, that as "Public Instructors" of God's Word, they FIRST had to be "taught," yes taught properly, in order to be "ADEQUATELY QUALIFIED to teach others." Think about it. - 2 Timothy 2:2
Thus, all members of the YORWW Congregation, properly view themselves then, as "Public Instructors", trained "teachers" for the special work we do in behalf of all God's Name People worldwide, as well as the rest of mankind world wide. And we hope, in time, you will come to the same conclusion, and wish to join us as trained "public instructors" of God's Word also.
In starting this discussion board, what we originally hoped for would be, a full "student body" made up exclusively of particularly keen bible students from among Jehovah's Witnesses, that would adamantly and steadfastly agree to the following: Bible Prophecy, with either good or negative connotations, will have certain fulfillment upon God's Name People, Jehovah's Witnesses themselves as a people and nation.
Of course, all informed Jehovah's Witnesses realize that this is clearly NOT what the Watchtower Society teaches concerning such important matters relative to understanding bible prophecy of our times. Actually, the major qualification for joining LWF Discussion is:
you wholeheartedly believe Jehovah's Witnesses are indeed, God's Name People, yes Mystery "Israel" of our times, fulfilling bible prophecy.
Another good point to keep in mind about the YBA is this, even though we agree Jehovah's Witnesses do possess some forty (40) basic truths themselves, there are many, many important doctrinal and procedural issues taught by the Watchtower Society that are IN ERROR, BLATANTLY WRONG and thus of great concern to God's Name People today. Therefore, we can see the need for providing such discussion boards like CE and LWF Discussion Boards for searching Jehovah's Witnesses who wish to have open, frank dialogue with fellow believers on many pertinent biblical issues affecting them today.
