Good Evening, we at [a local] hospital nursing staff hope that the cancer patient who brought spirit and healing to many, we in turn now pray that he's doing well and in good health. We still very much keep up with the encouraging articles so God Bless and may you continue bringing the joy of the living God to people.

Hello Brothers, I feel so blessed to have at my fingers spiritual food for those who truly have their "minds fixed on the things above." I just had the pleasure of reading the entire section on The Brotherhood and I’ve got to tell you brothers in all humility and having served for 30 years in circuit work, this section opened my heart to the point of tears. Now I’m on a real mission and being 67 years young, I have a "burning" within my spirit. Thank you friends, thank you!

April 30, 2013

Dear Brothers, can’t thank you enough for your fine writing and respectful letters. The Slave has really made a mess of scriptures concerning the end time judgment. My feelings are basically as you brothers keep repeatedly saying, to live the plain and authentic teachings of Jesus. I’m one of those who have taken a stand and have confessed Christ and I'll tell you friends that it is your food that is feeding because you are concerned like no other site I’ve seen keeping your eye on the prize. Keep suppling us with whatever you come up with in your spiritual kitchen. May Jehovah bless your wisdom.

[From an elder] Dear Brothers, I hope you are both doing well.  Judging by the two [Circuit Overseers] who have stepped down, I would surmise this represents greater cracks in the organization’s ability to maintain the status quo.

April 28, 2013

[From a Circuit Overseer in Southern California] I must say with all truthfulness I never expected your site to have such a meaningful effect on the Congregations in so many places but after reading your entire site, I’m understanding more so the mass appeal, sonship plain and simple and also you’re not seeking glory and for that I will say from the heart "thank you." Now does that mean I agree with every statement in every article, of course there are differences of thinking but what I will say is that the approach to every article is done with class and not disrespectful, so bravo friends bravo! May Jehovah the true Father continue giving you wisdom from above.

April 27, 2013

[From an elder] Hello my brother and sister. This is quite a thrill to be writing you.  I’m an Elder in the Congregation with [another elder in Central California] visiting some fellow partakers in [Southern California] and I've got to say what a beautiful pair of articles the ones on "Apostates" and "You Will be Witnesses of Me."  We’re all at a park having some fellowship, thinking about our future and these days where else can you turn for encouraging spiritual heavenly food but to AnointedJW.  A group of about 14 of us are our praying one at a time for you both. We need this Manna so please continue and may the guiding hand of our Great Leader be heavily upon you.

April 25, 2013

[From a former Circuit Overseer in the Mid-Western United States] Dear Brothers, I believe the profound time for change has come. I’ve often read and heard of the wonderful things you've been able to accomplish and I’m truly thankful for the way you respectfully have conducted the ministry of uplifting the spiritual conversation the world over. I recently stepped down as C.O. [Circuit Overseer] for many reasons but the main issue is that the plain and authentic teachings in the Bible as Jesus taught minus prophecy indicates "as many as did receive him" were welcomed. So since the "Slave" won’t change, I decided and my wife also said enough is enough. So I’m happy to just to live in peace and let my light shine. You friends will be loved and put thru the ringer but maintain your loyalty to the Christ and to our most beautiful heavenly Father.

April 25, 2013

Hey family, you two continue to amaze me and others. I’m sitting at my station with some co-workers and after reading the new gem of an article [“You Will Be Witnesses of Me”], my co-workers all say the problem with the article, "it’s too much like right" "it makes to much sense" and I totally agree. This is part of why people shy away from Witnesses. They believe we don’t think highly of Jesus, like the Jews say even to this day Jesus was just A Prophet. But this is one of those landmark articles that once again says what most of us have always thought. We live in C.E not B.C.E. As for us, we’re on the train and the conductor is the Christ.

April 24, 2013

It́'s almost eleven years since left the [Jehovah’s Witnesses].  I had no where to go. At least so it felt. I think God always took care of me. It́s a miracle that Ím alive today. You brothers have helped both me and others so much. No fame, glory, money in this world would be enough to repay you. Thanks for your tremendous effort in healing lost sons.

April 24, 2013

[From a former Circuit Overseer in Western United States] Dear wonderful brothers, it is my honor to have found you before the end of my natural life made its call. Your site has forever changed me for the better, though I do feel the shame of teaching untruths for so many years. I do love the Father and the brothers but after the spirit bore witness in both mind and in my heart, it was no way I could speak another falsehood. So I had to step down as C.O. [Circuit Overseer] and live my life for the Kingdom of the heavens. I want you friends to know I’m forever grateful for you and my other brother who are aiding me in this process. May Jehovah keep you strong as we beg the Master to send out more workers.

April 17, 2013

Bravo Bravo Bravo!! on your recent articles [Lastly He Sent His Son. and Beware of Apostates. I feel so much everlasting gratitude for the peace I've gained from your faith strengthening spiritual articles. This new one touched me deeply, because of my association with Witnesses, I've cried constantly because of the rulership of the Society, yes rulership. But I will not allow my new spirit to leave me bitter because my spirit now doesn’t cry out, it screams out ‘Abba' Father. So I’m secure in my faith and I pray all day that  many sick, weak, shackled people from all religions read what you have to say. As for my health, now it’s one day at a time. But I’m blessed and I hope either on earth or in heaven I get a chance to see the helping hand that brought me hope. God is with you, please continue, millions need you.

**********
April 17, 2013

Hello co-workers and lightbearers! I’m so glad you wrote the "Beware of Apostates." They are really timely words, the name calling and judgmental attitudes must stop. Let me tell you, the work in at least 3 hospitals have benefitted greatly from brother man's outreach to the Cancer and Aids patients. We could not be anymore blessed to have humble folks doing faithfully and doing it Discreetly. lol. Love you guys!

April 16, 2013

Good Afternoon, I just had read some of the newer articles and I’m better for it. I must say the concise way of delivery touched me especially with "Jesus In Our Midst" and “Lastly He Sent His Son."  It felt very personal the reading of it so much so that I re-read them twice and the very same feeling came over me.  I’ve never claimed to be a religious man but I recognize that there is a Great Power that ignites us. I’ve on occasion spoken with a patient that come to the hospital and I promised I'd give the site a glance.  As noted, it turned out to be much more than a glance! An extraordinary man, he is an excellent representative of the site. Not as patients, but we need more examples of goodness like this soft-spoken man. I wish the site and the gentleman all the best.

**********

April 15, 2013

Good Day to you authors, Bravo for the "Beware of Apostates!" article. It hits home for me because I’ve had disagreements in the past about "current understandings" whether if it were "generations" or "sheep and goats" or the big bugaboo "1914."  You see the problem is I have a mind and Jehovah just so happened to bless me with the ability to "think and reason on things."  So I know of what you friends are conveying so beautifully. I hope with strong and deep respect that the [Watchtower Bible & Tract Society] will stop with the name calling and let us publishers have a personal relationship with God. And leave the judging to the Father.

**********
April 15, 2013

[From an elder] Hello Friends, what a sincere article [Beware of Apostates!] and a much needed one, this calling of apostasy if a publisher has a disagreement with a teaching or two. When you think about it, if I have to agree with every teaching from any man or body of men, that is the height of worship. That kind of loyalty should be reserved for Jehovah due to the fact that He is perfect. Everything else is relative subjection. I thank you friends, and all of your family appreciate what you do. This article on Apostates is a must read. God bless.

April 15, 2013

[From an elder] [Regarding the Beware of Apostates! article] Greetings dear friends, talk about timing. I was talking to some friends yesterday about the need to be careful in name calling whether sheep or goats, apostates and so forth, so this is timely to say the least.  And having heard what is being said at the "God's Word" District Convention, this will be beneficial indeed. If only "you know who" could humbly just take an honest look at what it is being expressed. The fear tactics are alarming to me, and the power display.  And my friends up north and some brothers in New York and in Ohio have expressed their concerns as well. But let me say from the heart and with freedom of speech, this is powerful info friends. Many enjoy the frank yet respectful articles so may the Father continue to bless your effort to bring and shine light into a, if not dark world, a mighty dim one.

**********
April 15, 2013

[From an elder]  Dear Friends, I read with great interest your article "Beware of Apostates!" It made me reminisce about days long gone by when a different spirit prevailed among Jehovah's Witnesses. I remember during the decade of the 1960's and very early 70's many of my Witness associates would freely discuss possible alternative views of scripture interpretation.

Those discussions were sometimes spirited but always very stimulating as it made you think deeply on spiritual things. The "A" word (Apostate) was never even conceived of in our discussions. No one sought to compel anyone else to embrace their ideas. What a wonderful time that was.

If anyone just goes back and read some of the questions from readers printed in the Watchtower during the 1950's through 1970's, you will see that our brothers in Brooklyn were much more open to publishing and attempting to answer very difficult questions that were somewhat of a challenge to our understanding at the time. Many questions were raised then that if someone were to ask the same questions today they would be charged with questioning the authority of the Governing Body and would quickly be labeled either an apostate or someone who has apostate leanings. This is a lamentable state we have come to. Our Lord Christ Jesus never sought to evade or censor difficult questions.

Our system has become very much like the first century Jewish system. That system became one where the people became spiritually stagnant and dying because they had crystallized truth into a creed; when truth becomes formulated as a boundary line of self-righteousness instead of serving as a signpost of spiritual guidance and progress, such teachings lose their creative and life-giving power and ultimately become merely preservative and fossilizing.

I hope your well written article on Apostasy will give all readers reason to pause before attributing the defaming label of "apostate" to someone who simply holds a different opinion on certain scriptural matters. Best wishes, Your brother.

**********
April 15, 2013

I've been meaning to say hello to you friends it seems forever.  I’ve been reading the articles for about 7 months now, and have been associated with [Jehovah’s Witnesses] for 20 years, baptized 17 years and partaking 4 years. So you can understand why I feel so strongly what you write is manna from heaven. This site is not like any other.  You state what is true, not with hatred, but with what takes place in the association. The "Lastly He Sent His Son" was quite tastefully done, explaining the old teachings to the new, the prophets to Jesus. And it seems we haven’t moved the needle an inch in 2000 years, a shame. But Jehovah and His Christ never gave up on me, so I like yourselves hold out a glimmer of hope for our family of brothers and sisters. Once again, thank you for well aimed, well written articles of encouraging words. May Jehovah bless your efforts.

**********
April 13, 2013

Your recent article, "Lastly He Sent His Son" was superb in every way. Your own parable was remarkably successful in illustrating how many Christians have allowed their place in Christ household to be subverted. How unfortunate! Hopefully with your kind persistence our brothers in Brooklyn will someday yield to Christ leadership in the fullest sense he desired. Until then every individual has an opportunity to take their place at the banquet table. No one can take your place away unless you relinquish it. As you so succinctly indicated all power has been given Christ in Heaven and on EARTH.  May your articles and ministry continue to awaken many more sons and daughters to the incomparable hope in the Kingdom of the Heavens, both among Jehovah's Witnesses and the world at large.

April 13, 2013

To the authors of AnointedJW, I'd like to commend you on the most educational web sites I’ve ever seen. It’s a no frills kind of look at both Father and Son and how beautiful they are. So thank you and may you please continue with this type of writings

**********
April 12, 2013

Greetings to you dear friends, I’m very new when it comes to your site, but an oldie when it concerns partaking of our Christ. I think it bold yet tactful and respectful regarding your letters and articles. I'm very much inclined to agree with much you've stated with the "channel." And as was brought to my attention by another brother familiar with the site said "a brother who takes a position of watchcare over another family member has no parental rights unless clearly stated to all members being present or written down, which is not the case in the Bible so one brother to another can only recommend or suggest."  So I'd like to thank you friends for trying to put things in their right order and to the young man who spoke with me. God bless and may Jehovah and his Christ be the wind at your back.

April 11, 2013

Thank you so much for the response you posted today [Question and Response April 11, 2013]. I can tell you that I belong to Christ and I'm not that much interested in following a governing body that has been proven to be wrong again and again. I love having Jesus as my savior and mediator. And I love also being led by the spirit. Thank you again.  Keep on doing this good work.

April 11, 2013

[From an elder] Dear friends, I’m grateful for the article "Lastly He Sent His Son." It moved my heart and the hearts of others of the brotherhood of partakers who delight in the way you continue to bestow the proper position the Spirit Of Truth should have in our minstry and also the pure "open and plain teachings of Jesus" is always front and center in your articles. The other members of the body would like you to know that the way you are promoting the Christ and the absolute beauty of our Father is second to none. Keep up this type of love and humility, don’t change. God bless you and til our last breath in Christ we remain unified in faith.

April 11, 2013

Hello brothers and sisters, this is for the entire brotherhood if you're a first timer to the site, PLEASE read Lastly He Sent His Son, OMG!! Talk about speaking and telling it like it is. WOW, the Christ is alive and well. I love the respect you give man, but more importantly the honor you give the Christ and his spirit helper we also have. Beautiful article friends.This is one of those articles that will show whose side you’re on when it comes to loyalty. I want my food the way it was prepared by Christ! lol God be with you.

April 11, 2013

English Translation:
That's one of the best articles I read. [Lastly He Sent His Son]  It's really according to the "plain and open teachings" of Jesus as you consistently accentuate. I really thank you very much for these open words. In this way Jesus is given the honor that is due to him. Now it's the time to shout out this truth to all who are misled by men claiming to be the "channel" of God. Affectionate regards from your brother in Germany in the Lord.
        
From German: 
Liebe Brueder, das ist einer der besten Artikel, die ich hier gelesen habe. [Schließlich Er sandte seinen Sohn]. Er entspricht wirklich der "klaren und offenen Lehre" Jesu - so wie ihr das immer betont. Ich danke euch wirklich sehr fuer diese offenen Worte. Auf diese Weise wird Jesus die Ehre erwiesen, die ihm gebuehrt. Es ist wirklich an der Zeit, diese Wahrheit all denen zuzurufen, die durch Menschen irregefuehrt werden, die beanspruchen, der "Kanal" Gottes zu sein.  Herzliche Gruesse aus Deutschland von einem Bruder im Herrn.

Good Afternoon AnointedjW. It’s a pleasure to have been given such an encouraging web-site. Many, many years ago, I was a active Jehovah’s Witness, but it just over time ran its course.  It didn’t feed my spirit, they don’t allow growth unless it benefits the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society (WBTS).  So I began just reading the Bible and other writings and I felt free, not in some weird or immoral way. Just free to explore what I honestly believed, and I must say, for a while I was pretty lonely cause as you friends know as a witness you give up everything and just about everyone outside of them (WBTS). But with your articles, my dignity and energy is back and I don’t mind speaking to other religious groups, not judgmental just nice spirit kingdom talk on everything upward. The (WBTS) could learn a thing or two from this site-rep who is a patient. He has a Jesus-like way about him. We could sure use more real sons of Jehovah, I hope your efforts pays off for our generation. God speed in health and God be with all who grab and hold on to these teachings.

**********
April 7, 2013

I’ve been studying your articles and doing a lot of....wait for it.....Bible reading! Without publications. And I must say it is so enlightening. I’m not looking for an argument with the elders but I must be ready to defend my beliefs, as you said, if they question the hope I have. Right now my main goal is to uplift and inform my wife. Then comes our brothers and the ministry. I’m already "informally" witnessing to friends at work and they are listening a lot more now that the veil is lifted and they don’t feel judged. I’m looking forward to seeing more Articles for study! I have to plant the seed in my congregation. After all, today’s Watchtower talked about the truth and how truth should measure up under observation :-). Exciting times! Thanks again!

**********
April 7, 2013

Good Afternoon, I’m new to your web-site, its to my liking that's for sure. I was told about your site from a patient in the hospital [in the city]. It must have been God because he was talking to someone else but I heard the site address. In some ways, I think he knew I was listening. I read the [Part 15 -] Good News for All People and Jesus in our Midst.  Beautiful articles, I’m so inspired. God Bless the Father and God be with the patient.

**********    
April 6, 2013

[From a doctor] Greetings to you AnointedJW, I felt it an honor to listen to the man of God who happens to be a patient. This gentle soul talked about sonship, not in the manner of most preachers, not at all. You could almost see heaven and feel the presence of God by his heartfelt expressions. I read the Good News Series and find it quite interesting, some of which I will have to re-read, but like the speaker was saying to enter things that are of spirit values always with an open mind to the possibilities so that we are receptive to the leadings of the spirit. What a blessing he was for us all, and to think he's the sick one? Makes me rethink the meaning of being sick. Well thank you and God bless your site I will share the site with others.

**********
April 6, 2013

Hello brothers and sisters, I’m an inactive [Jehovah’s Witness] because of the teachings, they just don’t match common sense. I’m one of those publishers that still holds to a moral way of life and one who loves the kind of people they are.  It’s just that what I see is kinda weird. After reading the latest article Fearless Sons of the Kingdom] and the Memorial Articles, I believe young and old would like this Good news in a heart beat. Keep going if you can, please!

**********
April 6, 2013

I’m reading some of the articles on the site, when I get breaks.  I had the most interesting conversation with a patient. I work as a pastor at a hospital but I see I’ve got to do my home work. I so appreciate honest and sincere children of God the Father. God bless your work and good luck to the patient, not that he needs it.

**********
April 5, 2013

Hey brothers! Loved the new article! [Fearless Sons of the Kingdom] It builds courage inside me to stand up for my sonship and I hope I’ll be the first of many in my congregation. I’ve been studying up on the scriptures and doing massive amounts of Bible reading in preparation of the days ahead and I hope to reach our brothers [in the local Kingdom Halls].  Thank you brothers! I love you brothers and sisters and hope you all continue to do well in your endeavors to help our other brothers and sisters see the truth! I’ll pray for you!
    
**********
April 5, 2013

Good Day AnointedJW, I love your site. It’s given me some peace of mind.  I’ve prayed for sonship and if I never get well, I will at least know that heaven is my future. So thank you and Father bless my children, please, to learn about you, please.

April 4, 2013

[From a former elder] Hello and Greetings to all of our brothers and sisters all over the earth.  It’s been my absolute joy over the past 44 years serving in the congregation, but the spirit within me at this time does not allow me to continue with the two hope theory in my preaching work.  So as a partaker of all things heavenly, I will be stepping down as an elder so that I can give all of my time and energy to the storing of treasures in heaven and to increase the Master's belongings because it is time, I personally feel, we as an Association need to, regardless of the fall out, we must preach what is clearly taught by Jesus. I, like so many, have given my entire life to the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society and I, in my stepping down, in no way want to create conflict or confusion. But I must speak truth as I understand it.  Please let me be clear once again, the truth according to what "I" understand it to be.  And I also believe, if any sincere spirit-led person does not see heaven as the real life, the living hope as Jesus taught, I will continue in prayer for you. God Bless.

April 4, 2013

You 2 are doing some amazing work. This is the greatest time of sowing of real kingdom seed I’ve ever seen from Jehovah’s Witnesses.  I’m so proud of you guys.

***********
April 4, 2013

AnointedJW, It’s really cool that you're not giving up on the Society, even though it will take an act of God to get them to budge. But if any one can do it, it might as well be you guys. I’m a publisher not yet baptized and the heavenly hope has been my reason for the delay, [because] I’m so looking forward to the real deal the heavens. So right now I’m lost, but I'll be keeping up with your site. Hey God bless and Keep doing your heaven articles.

**********
April 3, 2013 

Thank you very much for your encouragement. Now my happiness increased more. I wish this good news will be understood by most of [Jehovah’s Witnesses.]  I will do all possible things on my side. I am reading all the articles posted on the site. And add my email on the alert list.
I hope our brotherhood as God's child will continue.
