Did you know, there is a term called: "Gas-Lighting" the issues within the mental health profession and community. The term evidently came from a screenplay and later movie produced in the 1940s, starring Ingrid Bergman. (See Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaslighting )
Well it seems, the practice of "gaslighting" or "gas-lighting" has been going on for some time now among Jehovah's Witnesses...at least according to some who have observed this situation, with what the YORWW might add, a lot of unseen help from the wicked "demons" to help fulfill bible prophecy. -- 1 Timothy 4:1; 2 Timothy 4:3, 4
Let me explain. [The following information will better clarify our understanding of Revelation 18:2, 3 along with other verses associated with this theme.]
What got me thinking about this term "gaslighting" was this thread:
http://www.jehovahs-witness.com/topic/7 ... ting-abuse
First, this thought was posted by "illuminated":
Gaslighting or gas-lighting is a form of mental abuse in which information is twisted/spun, selectively omitted to favor the abuser, or false information is presented with the intent of making victims doubt their own memory, perception and sanity.
Sociopaths frequently use gaslighting tactics. Sociopaths consistently transgress social mores, break laws, and exploit others, but typically, are also charming and convincing liarswho consistently deny wrongdoing. Thus, some who have been victimized by sociopaths may doubt their perceptions.
And later, this comment was made by "Searcher" who said:
As with every cult, the controllers are completely aware of the cult's history, purpose, methods and objectives.
The blindly obedient are so indoctrinated and gullible, that their masters can tell them in black & white that they have to be 100% compliant, even if it doesn't make sense. (w13 11/15 p. 20 par. 17)
Since the indoctrinated are voluntarily following the dictats of a man-made corporation which has convinced them of its "divine choosing" - rather than following the Beroeans example of examining scriptural teachings - that makes every Witness accountable! (Acts 17:11; Romans 14:12)
Nazis said when they were caught - "we were only obeying orders".
End of comment.
In other words in summation, if the innocent party or judge of the situation or wrongful act, does not properly REMEMBER THE FACTS and what just happened, the "abuser" [or sociopath] will test that "memory" and make them "doubt" their own perception and/or "sanity" about what just happened, making them think they have judged the whole matter wrongly. What?!?
This situation described above, is now being appropriately applied to the Governing Body and what they teach all Jehovah's Witnesses who are loyal adherents of the Watchtower Society and company, no matter what.
Yes, you have to forget about what they [Governing Body] previously taught on "the generation" that lives to "see all of these things" ... you must forget what they taught for decades and decades about Matthew 24:34.
Which means, to "judge" any matter properly, especially dealing with vile, wicked "tricky" people like the Governing Body, you have to keep your head on straight, or the "abuser" [or sociopath] will trick you, he or she will "gaslight" you, into doubting your own memory of things. Judging humans and/or human behavior, no question, is a very tricky matter. -- See Isaiah 11:3, read and examine very carefully.
Well, let's think about this wicked, vile situation that all Jehovah's Witnesses are faced with today. And why is it, Jehovah's Witnesses world wide simply CAN NOT THINK PROPERLY, as many have noted? We notice, they cannot reason things out for themselves, and cast away the spiritually vile, wicked Governing Body and Watchtower Society, yes why?
Based upon Revelation 18:2, modern-day "Babylon The Great" is to become a "lurking place" for every kind of "UNCLEAN" and "HATED BIRD" or "DEMON." Also, it was foretold "Babylon The Great" was to become the "LURKING PLACE" for every kind of "UNCLEAN EXHALATION" [or the footnote in the Reference Lrg Prt NWT says "UNCLEAN SPIRIT"]. This would have to be a DEMONIC "SPIRIT" or control of things...like someone is "possessed" by demons. This would mean, Babylon The Great and all of its "victims" are "possessed" at this point, by demons. Babylon becomes...becomes this "lurking place" for all of these demons, it says. And this situation has happened because, it gives rise to the "'Anger" of God, now on display. It becomes His Punishment for the Jehovah's Witnesses willingly accepting this terrible situation, that proves to be a horrible spiritual blunder on their part, of going along with this treacherous act committed by the Governing Body and Watchtower Society with the United Nations.
Yes, it was the willing acceptance of the United Nations NGO Affair carried on in secret for some 10 years before the media of this world (Guardian Newspaper of UK) incredibly exposed them, exposing the actual wicked, heinous, spiritual "fornication" that was done "highhandedly" [or with "uplifted hands," See Numbers 15:30 NWT Lrg print footnote] or "deliberately" committed by the Governing Body, that becomes the "Sin and Abhorrent Thing" that the brotherhood of Jehovah's Witnesses have willingly accepted. They (Jehovah's Witnesses) even accepted the "wine of her fornication" or the weak "Library Card Lie" Excuse that the Governing Body gave to them, graphically showing everyone in the world, their non-repentant attitude over this whole affair of "abhorrence." Therefore to survive such a horrendous affair such as this, the Jehovah's Witnesses world wide must now be "washed clean," have "their robes washed clean" of such a dastardly deed, in the eyes of Jehovah & Jesus Christ, just as bible prophecy clearly indicates. -- See Zechariah 13:1; Revelation 7:14; Revelation 12:11; Revelation 22:14.
Think about it!
Therefore, these "UNCLEAN EXHALATIONS" or this "UNCLEAN SPIRIT" that we are now witnessing among all Jehovah's Witnesses, that are evidently from the demons, is what bible prophecy predicts to be the "teachings of Demons" that was prophesied to come in the "last day" teachings like ... the "Overlapping Generation" teaching. The Prediction was actually made by Apostle Paul as shown at 1 Timothy 4:1 and 2 Timothy 4:3, 4. These verses really, show this quite clearly. [Please read.]
So when the bible predicts the "riders of the horses [or publications]" have been struck with "MADNESS" [or insanity...craziness] then, this would be because their explanation of prophecy in the written publications, simply does not make any sense. It is craziness. And this is because, they are all...possessed. You are now witnessing this situation unfold before your very eyes, proving you are living in "the last days" or "later periods of time" that Paul promised was surely to come. We are living in that day now. -- 1 Timothy 4:1; 2 Timothy 4:3, 4; Zechariah 12:4
So then, why don't the Jehovah's Witnesses themselves, just see this and wake up?
Well they can't, at least, not on their own. Remember, they are "possessed" ... "possessed" by "lurking" demons, per Revelation 18:2!
Also remember, the experience of "James Jack" where the long-standing JW/Elder/Pioneer and his wife, both of them, do not wake up until...until, he is thrown out of his position of elder...then and only then, suddenly ... does he and his family ... WAKE UP! Only then. Is this not so??? -- See Zechariah 12:4.
So it seems, then ... when the promised "UPROAR at the Temple" arrives...or when the "1/3 of the Stars are thrown down" by Satan's "Tail" [Governing Body] ... then, and only then...will some of them [Jehovah's Witnesses] "wake up" ... all by the Almighty Hand of God. So, these two (2) events, go together... the "uproar" with the "1/3 stars" being thrown down. -- See Isaiah 66:6; Revelation 12:4.
So then, the "Uproar at the Temple" [Isaiah 66:6] and the "1/3 of the stars" being hurled down by Satan's "Tail" [aka "Governing Body" Revelation 12:4], ... these events, go together.
Thus, if Jehovah's Witnesses are ever to successfully "escape" the wicked "Dragnet" Organization, Jehovah, must "wake" them up! He must "wake up" ... The "Male Child" to action! -- See Zechariah 9:13; Isaiah 66:5; Revelation 12:5
Indeed, did not Jesus say:
"KEEP AWAKE, then, all the time making supplication that you may SUCCEED IN ESCAPING ALL THESE THINGS that are destined to occur, and in standing before the Son of Man." -- Luke 21:36
Yes, we must "SUCCEED IN ESCAPING" ... Yes, ESCAPING ... "ALL THESE THINGS" ... as in "escaping" the wicked "Dragnet," Babylon The Great!
(Also compare Revelation 3:3 where Jesus says to "stay awake" to fully escape spiritual defilement.)
Think about it!
Again, notice how Isaiah 66:5 and verse 6 ... go together. The "Birth" of the "Male Child" ... with the "UPROAR at the Temple." Also, the events of Revelation 12:4 & 5 fit together. Plus, Zechariah 9:13 and verse 14 fits in quite nicely with this prophecy, along with what's described at 1 Timothy 4:1 and 2 Timothy 4:3, 4, all of which was promised to happen in the "latter periods of time."
Therefore, this has to be viewed as "Demonic Possession" on "James Jack's" part, do you not agree?
So then we must conclude, the "Anger" of Jehovah's Wrath in this case, is justifiably and fully expressed, when He [Jehovah] gives the Jehovah's Witnesses as a people and nation over ... gives them over to "Demonic Possession" as evidenced by the Demonic Teachings we are seeing today, yes that these people have willingly accepted from the hand of the Governing Body and Watchtower Society. And bible prophecy indicates we can expect this to continue...at least up to the promised "UPROAR AT THE TEMPLE" when these same "Possessed" people [which would include JW Reformers or the "Two Witnesses" of Revelation 11:3] ... suddenly "wake up" as the "AWAKENED SONS" [Male Child] of Zechariah 9:13. (Also see Zechariah 9:14 too, which serves to fully identify this group as the promised "Male Child.")
As the prophecy indicates, some "awaken" to fight in the kingdom halls ... like the promised "Two Witnesses" (or JW Reformers) and some "awaken" to leave the JW Organization or "Dragnet," and become the "Male Child" and finally join the YORWW Congregation. But, Zechariah 9:13-15 is talking about specifically...specifically the "Male Child" who is definitely referred to as the "Sons of Zion," who oppose ... opposed the "sons of Greece" [pagans in Jehovah's House, AKA Governing Body] ... the people that ultimately become "boisterous" after "escaping" ... "escaping" Babylon The Great when they subsequently, join the YORWW [caught up to heaven, Rev. 12:5]. -- See article covering Revelation 12th chapter found at: http://www.yorww.com/rev12.htm
So then, the experience of "James Jack" as related at JW.Net is important to us, to better understand bible prophecy happening at the kingdom hall, and all around us.
See experience of "James Jack" given here:
http://www.jehovahs-witness.com/topic/7 ... -guy-again
So then, there can be no doubt, these "demonized" JW people are nowadays, struggling with "Teachings of Demons" and being "possessed" so that they cannot...cannot RESIST these wicked "teachings" of the Governing Body, which are from "Lurking Demons."
Which means, Revelation 18th chapter and verse 3 shows it is because of the "wine of her fornication" and the "anger" and righteous wrath, that is expressed because of this on God's part, that brings about this horrible condition at the kingdom halls around the world, that we are presently witnessing. Shocking indeed!
So then, Revelation 18:3, shows us then, it is because of the "Wine of THE ANGER [of God] of her fornication" that has caused...caused this horrible situation of "Demonic Possession" for all Jehovah's Witnesses around the world. Yes, the "Anger" that comes from Jehovah God, whereby all...and that's ALL the "nations have fallen victim" as the verse says ... becomes "victim" to this "WINE" or Library Card "LIE" that surrounds the Horrible NGO Situation in Babylon The Great, that the brothers/Sisters have willingly accepted. Even the "kings" [Traveling Overseers] have agreed to go along with this horrible hidden, "leaven" or "fornication" situation, that even Jesus promised was coming. The NGO Situation...is that horrible "leaven" that Jesus said was coming upon God's Name People. -- Please compare Zechariah 5:5-11 with Matthew 13:33.
And, all of this is shown in verses 2 and 3 of Revelation 18th chapter.
Think about it!
There can be no question, the Watchtower Society = The Promised, wicked "Dragnet" [that holds people in complete slavery/captivity without escape being possible] that Jesus said was coming in Matthew 13:47-50.
Think about it, again!
Is it any wonder, Michael himself, along with all of his holy angels will have to battle fiercely, Satan and his demon angels for the final "casting out" of Satan upon these "demonic" people, Jehovah's Witnesses. (John 12:31) Yes, Satan must be exorcised from the Jehovah's Witnesses, first. This must be done by Michael (under Jehovah's direction) for the actual saving of the mental-sanity and mental-stability, of these hapless, helpless "demonic-possessed" Jehovah's Witnesses, before ... before they can be freed to become the foretold "Male Child" of Bible prophecy, free to worship Jehovah in righteousness, away from the wicked Watchtower Society. Yes, the "Truth will have set them free," just as Jesus promised at John 8:32. Praise Jah! -- See Revelation 12:5, 7-12.
