[From an active Circuit Overseer] Hello brother and sister, I just had to give you this tremendous update. Brother, you recall my visit with you and the two brothers [from Bethel] who accompanied me. Well I'm happy to report that they have partaken twice in private subdued Remembrance meals and they also relayed to me the utter chaos the headquarters is in. The [Governing Body] is trying to weed out the free thinkers before they exit Brooklyn. They've got spies spying on their spies. What a mess and what a sad state of affairs the goings on at the higher levels of governance. When I hear something I think is of value, I'll be sure to pass it on. Bless you friends.

[From Texas] Hello friends of AnointedJW, I'm a fellow witness and a partaker of Christ. Today me and my entire family got baptized at a YMCA. It’s the happiest day of our lives!  A former elder did the honors so all members of my immediate family are joint heirs with Christ. You see after reading "What Prevents Me" and "Proving Yourself Worthy," a friend and sister said "well." Then we said "ok."  Friends I can't begin to describe the joy we feel after so many years in the [Watchtower] organization where we were taught that we are just friends of God but now realizing we are much more precious than that, we all have a father. My youngest is 11 and he for the last 2 years has been saying to me “Jehovah is my spirit Dad.”  Goes to show "out of the mouth of babes." So in closing, we as a family want to thank you friends for so many encouraging articles and emails, and may our Father continue blessing your work.

[From an active Circuit Overseer] Good Afternoon to All, I would like to just let you hard working brothers and sisters know that if not this Memorial, I'm sure the next will be the turning point in the history of the [Watchtower Bible & Tract Society].  Here's why, every [Circuit Overseer] I know personally or by the grape vine is being confronted with Sonship issues, and the thirst for understanding will have to be quenched or the present arrangement will just implode and collapse in on itself. Because of the new arrangement with the doing away with the [District Overseers], my responsibilities have doubled and at my age I'm not exactly excited about the change, but we will have to let it play out and just wait and see. Your articles on the memorial have really made a significant impact and whoever says differently does not know or are not privy to the inner workings of Bethel Headquarters. So all I can say is continue respectful but also continue being forthright in your message because it makes scriptural sense. I just hope and pray that the [Governing Body] prayerfully considers the information on your site. Take care, I will continue to look you friends up as I move to a different circuit.

Hello all Sons and Daughters of the Kingdom of God. I was recently traveling for work and, as I passed through a small town, saw two elderly Witness sisters outside the Post Office with a stand that was advertising free literature. I felt really sorry for them as I passed by but felt I had a calling to speak to them, so I turned my car around and parked nearby and approached, praying as I went, for the right words to say. I spoke to them about Jesus being the only way to God - the way, the truth, the life, the only means by which we can approach the Father. I spoke to them of grace and what it means to stand sinless before God. They replied with organizational rhetoric, the same rhetoric that I remember, that goes like this - "Saying you’re saved and forgiven of sin is just a way for people to sin as much as they like." I explained that it isn’t like that at all. They have not understood the importance of Romans chapters 5 and 6 and unfortunately they feel it doesn’t apply to them. 

In Romans 5 we have words like "justified by faith", "peace with god", "we have gained access through faith into his grace into which we now stand","gods love in our hearts", "justified by his blood", "saved from gods wrath", "reconciled to god", " our gift of righteousness". Chapter 6:1-7 deals with the question of using grace as an excuse to sin. I won’t quote it word for word here but basically our old selves died with Christ and we are a new creation. Yes we sin but we are not slaves to sin. The more we are forgiven, the propensity to sin is lessened. Sin loses its power for those in Christ. 

1 John 4:17 has a powerful thing to say. It says "As he (Jesus) is, so are we in this world."  Jesus then and now is glorified, at the right hand of God, clothed in righteousness and it is exactly as we are viewed by God. When Jesus prayed to his father in John chapter 17 he said a profound thing in verse 23,- "You have loved those you gave me, just as you have loved me". YES YES YES, God loves us exactly as he loves the Christ!! I wish all Witnesses would see that this is for them, not an elite little flock. 

Getting back to the elderly sisters, I left them with one thought that I pray resonates with their spirit. I asked them, if you sin today and Armageddon comes tomorrow, what is your standing with God? They both said , "we will be destroyed." I said that in the time of the Jews, the blood of bulls and goats would be shed as a covering of their sins and it would last one year until the next day of atonement. My question to the sisters was, "Are you telling me that the blood of Jesus was of less value than the blood of bulls and goats? The blood of bulls and goats lasted a year and yet Jesus blood cannot cover your sin for even 1 day?" 

I pray that they will think and seek the truth. I encourage all that have come to the grace of God through Jesus Christ to pray for those in darkness. All my love.

Greetings, before I head home [to India] for the Remembrance supper, I want to wish you two the very best. We will be having a private dinner with nothing but believers in the one true destiny for man. My family has started making preparations for the evening and are so excited. So we want to wish you both well, and we shall pray for you as you have always prayed for our families. God keep you both in his embrace. We will be in touch!

March 27, 2014 [Translated from Polish]

[From a sister in Poland] Hello my dear brothers and thank you for your quickly answer for my dilemma. I read this article and many others about our adoptions by God, our Father. We can be sons because we accept and love Jesus and we live his life. It is not difficult if the spirit of God stimulate our hearts and our actions to the love and concern for others like Jesus did. He is our model and we should follow him. The truth is that the knowledge and recognition of Jesus is our freedom to do everything without regard for somebody.

A few day ago I was on a trip with a group of people who "accepted Jesus as their savior". Then came to us beggar and asked us for a few cents, but no one react. One even said that he would not get from us anything and suggested that he wants money for alcohol. Then I imagined how Jesus watched for a poor. I went to this man and I asked him, why does he need the money : " for sth to eat " - he said. I took the "Knoppers," and I gave it to him. He thanked, opened and ate. Does in such a way we should imitate Jesus? Sometimes I'm angry for them who are "followers Jesus" but say one thing and do another things. In these situations, we see differences between sons of God and so-called " Christians".

I thank our God for his son Jesus who looking for lost God's children and he wants bringing them to our heavenly Father. John 20:17, Mat.16:24-27, 25:31-40. And I thank our heavenly Father for you dear brothers that He helped me to find you and for this that I'm not lonely right now. People in this world don't know God love. They need your help. I love you and God bless you. Your Sister.

PS. Once more I thank for translations articles for polish language. (Can I learn English language if I'm 65 year old??? - if God will want to)

What an outstanding response to the brothers question on the Governing Body being ‘rebels’ or more appropriately ‘apostates.’ [Question and Response 3/24/14] It seems that it is only a matter of time before the Watchtower Society crumbles and we would certainly hate to be in the shoes of those leaders and their supporters as the full realization of what they have committed comes to be common knowledge amongst our dear brothers and sisters and all those associated with them and even the world.  What an embarrassment it will be to be one of Jehovah’s Witnesses.  All the other religions that the organization has condemned, will in a sense be glad to see this false prophet who does not teach the correct understanding of Sonship disappear.  And as the rest of religions come to true knowledge of Our Lord along with these victims of the Governing Body they will become victors.  As the Revelation says  “The one who bears witness of these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming quickly.’” “Amen! Come, Lord Jesus.” (Revelation 22:20)  As we can see these events unfolding, it seems it will be sooner than later.

Hello Brothers, It's been enjoyable reading about all the ways the brothers around the world plan to celebrate the Memorial this year. I will probably celebrate at home, too. I have just completed reading the Intimate Evening article.

March 24, 2014

Good Afternoon AnointedJW, thank God the Father for your site. I have a friend who turned me on to you and I've got to be frank, this is the good news the world needs because you are so positive in your articles, always hoping for the best but at the same time you don't pull any punches. You tell plain and openly the love Christ has for all of mankind. Your site has brought me and my husband and my two sons closer to Jehovah but what's been the most valuable is our enhanced appreciation for Jesus ministry and the importance of being in union with Christ. So this year we have as a family decided to partake privately so that we can on bended knees if we choose to cry out loud, shout or laugh. This way it's a true communion not a spectacle. So once again thank you dear friends for you intense love for the entire brotherhood.

March 22, 2014

[From an active Elder] Hi dear brothers, I'm an Elder and most importantly a partaker of the heavenly call. I've followed your site for awhile now and have come to appreciate your ministry and efforts to both the flock and to the [Governing Body]. Although it's disappointing that the [Governing Body] did not humble themselves and take you up on your offer to assist in making the change from the two-hope theory to the one true Christian hope in the heavens, but all has not been lost because in the congregation I shepherd, we have a group of partakers and we are able to encourage each other but we know this is not the case all over. This year we will be gathering for the supper at my home because we feel strongly that it should be respectful and honor the intent so that only those who pick up the cup to drink should be present. So we want to thank you friends for your encouraging articles and emails, and please keep delivering positive refreshing spiritual food.

March 21, 2014

[From a former Circuit Overseer] To the Sons of the Kingdom, and all readers of the information provided on AnointedJW, with all due respect, I just concluded a modern day witch hunt to the 3rd degree from brothers from Bethel as to my intentions for this year’s Memorial and it caught me off guard.  But it was a moment I'll never forget because it felt like what people call an out of body type experience where not being ready made me humble enough to have to trust the spirit of truth to speak for me. 

You see I've made it public knowledge that I'm 100% in favor of the authentic teachings of Jesus and that the heavens is what every man woman and child should pursue. With question after question about my loyalty to the ‘slave,’ and have I been surfing the internet lately about everybody being sons, and that the earthly hope is a fraud, and am I recruiting other circuit overseers to follow in this line of thinking to create a coo of sorts.  And my first mind was "yes yes yes, thank you Jesus." But I didn't want to supply them with ammunition, so I prayed and then said, “Brother my hope is just that, my hope, Each Christian has to recognize for themselves what they believe and what they choose to except as truth. But as for me and my wife, we believe with everything in us that the goal and purpose of our Lord is to pursue the Kingdom of heaven.”

As proof of such a consecrated belief, I dare to speak to you all this evening. But what I also would like to convey to the brotherhood is that no man has the power of what the spirit has if we just trust the spirit. So after hours of questions and getting no where fast, they could not get me and my wife to give allegiance to the ‘slave.’ But they did get us to say “We have respect for all who are placed in their relative positions, but if you challenge us on our absolute devotion and dedication to the Christ, prepare yourselves to be held accountable to the highest courts in the Universe.”  

So I guess the lesson of this experience just makes it more and more clear that, just as the 1st century Jews and those who listened to Jesus were thrown out, expect the same today, dear brothers and sisters, and stand faithful to all challenges by mere men believing that they are in harmony with the will of God to persecute you and kill you spiritually. And I guess the side point of the night was that it was the fortifying information on AnointedJW that prepared my heart for this encounter. For myself and for my wife, we love the brotherhood and it's worth the persecution, so chalk this night up as a victory for the good guys, the ones who have white robes! Much love to any and all lovers of the true hope!! Don't you ever stop feeding God's children!!

[From a former Circuit Overseer] Hello dear brother and sister, we throughout the continental United States, will be using the "Intimate Evening" article as a united throng of followers of Christ. We have made calls and everyone agrees that the information contained in the Intimate Evening with its appropriate questions will open the heavens with the interchange of encouragement. Friends from Alaska to Puerto Rico will be attempting to bring heaven down. This authentic way of honoring Jesus is long overdue, so that you and most of all we are so blessed to feel the presence of the spirit of truth working in our lives like never before. It almost brings us to tears when we think of the dense darkness, the veil that engulfs the Organization and that if they could only apply the counsel they give to all others to humbly repent and humble yourself that you can be exalted. But I then look at the results of the ministry over the last few years and how many brothers now see clearly the plain teachings of our One True Leader Jesus Christ, so just as love hopes all things, we will continue awakening each person one by one. God the Father has given us a renewed purpose, so to all concerned "we have work to do."

[From an active Traveling Servant] [Regarding An Intimate Evening With Jesus] Great article dear friends, the time is ripe so keep going strong!

March 20, 2014

[From a former Elder] Dear beloved brother and sister, you are killing us softly and we love it [An Intimate Evening With Jesus], wow wow wow, such truth should be broadcast to every home on earth. You are so right in saying this is a night for showing solidarity, not for recruitment. A night for increased resolve, not for number counting. We stand ready in our dedication to see this night as the resolution of our union with our Lord and the opportunity to advance his, as you say, "agenda." So thank you and as everyone here and all who call me and my wife say, we can't wait! Oh how we love your zeal and your tireless efforts to bring Heaven down. [Another young brother] says [the Nevada recovery missions] are going really big this year with Catholics and Baptists joining in. So who knows what wonderful experiences will occur. God be with you both.

[From a Ministerial Servant] [Regarding An Intimate Evening With Jesus] This really touched my heart and [my sister’s too] so much so we just had to say to all lovers of Jehovah and followers of Christ, check your pulse if this article does not register with your spirit!! Fantastic sentiment of spiritual love shown in the writing, great job!!

Hello Family, beautiful memorial article [An Intimate Evening With Jesus]. We are making our humble plans for our own Intimate Evening with Jesus, and we so look forward to sharing the night with all partakers of the true hope for mankind. We will have upwards of 150 gathering together in the same place, but in circles of 25 each so that all can have a share in the night and get to know one another better. But the dinner beforehand will be as one. We are thrilled to be part of the movement back to the authentic ways of our Lord. Love you both, so from my family to you, thank you for this masterpiece of spiritual poetry, God Bless!

March 20, 2014

[From a former District Overseer] Hello One and All, I was on the site when to my delight "An Intimate Evening With Jesus" appears and I must express my total support and my own Amen! I can't wait dear friends to share the evening with faith sons of the kingdom and of course our wonderful Christ himself. I believe this to be the most touching confession of love that I've ever read dealing with this special night. I feel even more of a responsibility to multiply the kingdom interests with more conviction. I'm 62 years old, and I pray I can be in the service of the true message for at least as long as I promoted the two-hope theory. Thank God the Father for his mercy. But back to the article, it's truly a work and labor of love in the way you expressed the intimacy of the night. So thank you from the bottom of my heart.

**********
March 20, 2014

Such a beautiful article [An Intimate Evening With Jesus] that touches the heart and soul, bringing together all the Memorial articles for this important evening.  We think of the great joy for Our beloved Lord and all in the heavenly realms who work with him as they witness each of us stand together, with one message of heartfelt gratitude and love, showing the shackles of manmade beliefs are long gone in our lives.  As mentioned “Let us leave behind those who breathe threats against our open confession of union with Christ”, a most true statement, for their threats cannot break this allegiance we have with Christ.  Man’s destiny is spiritual goals and we can  respond to them openly without hindrance now.   What a loving provision this site has been to develop an anticipation through these articles with a true heavenly understanding and no doubt with more to come. This could be the beginning of a greater understanding of heavenly things in the future if the Father wills.  What a glorious future awaits those who are in union with Christ.   We are looking forward to the evening as never before…. And yes… AMEN

March 17, 2014

[From a former Elder] Greetings to all truly free sons of God. We all enjoyed the article One-Eyed not because of the shame of the Elders and the [Governing Body], but not letting their actions keep us from accomplishing our commission to make disciples and do it as VICTORS and not victims. Well let me just say we will be having a beautiful Remembrance Supper of about 22 partakers forming a giant circle and each of us will have an opportunity to share their hopes and dreams and just opening up our imaginations. I believe the fellowship is the key to the evening because of it's strengthening effect to not let up, so with a simple meal and the passing of the emblems, we want our Lord Jesus Christ to hear the united voices of appreciation and gratitude for the gift of everlasting life in the Kingdom of the heavens. Make your plans now dear friends wherever you are, this is a night for those who want to follow the Christ no matter where he goes. May Jehovah bless your efforts and all who are supporting the ministry of increase of the sons of God.

March 16, 2014

Dear brothers, While reading your article Entering One-Eyed, I could not help myself but to be on the verge of tears.  I told myself, "What is this information?" I felt the spirit of the article is entering my heart. I felt more than the usual emotions.  You have shown great tolerance and exceptional understanding to our [Jehovah’s Witness] brothers, as they are being led by the Faithful & Discreet Slave or the Governing Body (based on the new light).  May we become ultimate VICTORS in the faith, not succumbing to the pressure of becoming an atheist. 

**********    

March 15, 2014

[From a former Elder]  Greeting dear loved ones, the One-Eyed article speaks to why we need more brothers taking the lead who truly understand what Sonship, and the partaking of Jesus really means and why the hired man standing in place on a Son will mistreat the sheep in his care. You see, what we learned quickly in Reno [Nevada] and now spread out all over the states, is that the more congregations row together, the better it is for peace and harmony where everyone "gets it." They honor the Christ and his beautiful uplifting ministry along with Paul's hard work of trying teach the babes in the truth back then that we are one body, one congregation not two, and definitely not divided in pressing toward the upward call. Abusive behavior has no place in the body of Christ. Don't give up friends. Live your lives with eternity in mind and when we can put off this body and put on the one fashioned after our Lord, all of our struggles will have been worth every mistreated moment. Love you both, keep up the fight. And now this, we are growing daily. 

*********
March 14, 2014

[Regarding Entering With One Eye] I am so overcome with emotion and tears. Thank you seems not enough to express how I truly feel. Your article was like getting a hug, thank you! It will reach many like me and they will sob with gratitude.

**********
March 14, 2014

Another great article that moves us to action [Entering With One Eye].  While so many are hurt from the actions of religious organizations, they are victors because Jesus’ yoke is kindly and light, not the oppressiveness dictated by men.  We all have our scars and we all have our stories that will fade into insignificance once we realize the true eternity that awaits us. What a blessing for all these victims, who shine as VICTORS, and outshine their oppressors. Truly, we see the hand of God in the arrangements of this site. How it moves from the simple mindedness to the very deepest consciousness of being.

March 13, 2014

[From a former Elder in New York] . . . Me and my wife discussed the situation and decided that it would be more in harmony with Jesus teachings if I stepped down out of faith than be put out for being in opposition to the beliefs. So thank you brothers for providing a solid foundation and a place where real honest evaluations of our cherished beliefs could be examined.
. . .
Evening dear friends, I'm so excited I forgot to introduce myself. I'm a former elder in a local congregation in New York. My wife also has removed herself from the pioneer ranks after some 29 years. The real convincing point is when you talk about Jesus with a boldness, the expressions on their faces spoke volumes as to the disdain they have for his authority over the heavens and the earth. Your articles praise his ministry and promotes power to the individual and that is a BIG problem for the [“Faithful and Discreet Slave”]. But as a united marital union, we say to you friends, bring it on, because Christ has begun ruling since 33 C.E and this you've made very clear to those who enjoy new wine! Blessings and strength to you brothers and to all who chance to receive the truth you prepare through the power of Jesus Christ.

March 13, 2014

Hello there all born again, saved by grace, heaven bound, children of God. I used to be one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. I cannot claim that I had a divine revelation that led me to my current state of grace but I can say without a doubt that God never left me and he reached for me and said "You are highly valued, you are mine, I love you, I want you as my son". Let me tell you my story. 

I grew up in a Witness family. My mother and father were contacted by Witnesses in the 1950's and became members of the Organization soon after. Both my parents grew up in broken homes due to horrible family circumstances. The organization must have seemed like a loving family to them, for the first time in their lives. I think that was an attraction. These two broken people brought 4 children into the world and into the Organization. I was the youngest of the children. In turn, I brought up three children into that culture. I was once a Ministerial Servant for a while and I know that I had the love and respect of many brothers and sisters in the congregation. 

My wife, a baptized Witness, left me for another man around the year 1999. I was all of a sudden a single dad in desperate need of support. At that time no Elders from our congregation ever went to my wife to have a meeting to see if they could return her to the congregation, or perhaps help restore her faith, or perhaps take steps to disfellowship her if she was non repentant. (She is still in "good standing" in the organization, although has never gone back). I remember pleading with elders from the congregation to come and pray with me and my children because we were so badly in need of spiritual encouragement. Months went by and no shepherding call - NOTHING. I was still going to meetings and around that time I heard one of the elders give a talk about the responsibilities of the Elders as Shepherds. That was the end for me. 

It wasn’t long after that I stopped attending meetings. Two years later I started a relationship with a woman that I love and started living with her. I acknowledge that I was not living according to God's purpose and that I could have made better choices. As soon as the elders heard of my situation they tracked me down and had me disfellowshipped. I found out that I was disfellowshipped four weeks after the announcement.

Did God abandon me? Was my sin too much for God to handle? Was I lost for all time? Was I still loved? I want all to know that God loved me, always. Through my time as a Witness. Through my time of family distress. Through my time in sin. Through my confusion - He never forgot me and He had restoration plans for me. The Father has delivered into my life Christian people that have encouraged me, taught me, inspired my curiosity, revealed to me the love of God and the finished work of Jesus on the Cross. I can now say that I have freedom in Christ. I am free in the knowledge that God has an eternal plan for my life, both here on earth and in my eternal home in Heaven. I am free in that God sees me as sinless. When you feel this, your propensity to sin is reduced, and your ability to turn from sin is increased. 

I was taught as a Witness,"who would want to live in Heaven? Earth is the destination to which we must aspire". Let me tell you that when you realise that the heavenly calling is yours, all you want to do is be in the presence of the Father and his Son and live in Sonship. To all Witnesses who look at this site, there is a freedom that awaits you that you cannot even imagine. Please know that God loves you apart from an Organization and He is calling you to a greater destiny than you have ever imagined. Trust Him and come to Christ. He is the door. He is the way, the truth, the life. All my love.

March 11, 2014

[From a former Circuit Overseer’s Wife] Good Day brothers, my husband usually writes, but I wanted to personally say to the brother and sister who went through the ordeal with the bad shepherds [Leaving as Victors, Not Victims], trust me when I tell it's occurring way too much in the organization. When we served in the circuit work, publisher after publisher had a horror story that just cut like a knife. So we feel for you and will keep you both and all true lovers of Christ and our awesome Father in our prayers. To the authors of the site, thank you for the helpful suggestions on various ways to have an authentic supper in Remembrance of our Lord. With Agape' love and affection, [our] family wishes nothing but further success in Bringing Heaven Down so all may attain the prize of life as Victors!

March 11, 2014

Your ministry has been life changing for me. I have come to understand my true relationship with the Father and belonging to the Christ. The articles on your website encouraged me to reread and reread the Greek Scriptures with close attention. As a result I have a deep conviction, I am anointed with the joy of the glorious heavenly hope. I am forever grateful for you helping me open my eyes. Between my husband and myself, we have a couple of families we regularly visit and have Bible discussions about our heavenly hope. Often times we use your articles as a basis for our discussions. This has been very rewarding and we look forward to having these families come to our home to celebrate the Lord's Supper in April. May the Father continue to bless you and your ministry!

March 10, 2014

Hello, "Leaving As Victors, Not Victims", again, this just about says it all! Well done for being so honest and bold! I am beginning to read and understand Jesus' words now in a whole new light and meaning for mankind.

**********
March 10, 2014

Hello family, the Victim-Victor article sadly speaks to a lot of us, many not exactly like the brother and sister in the article, but the wrongs done to us by those who are supposed to be caring for the flock. Thank you for posting such a fine example of what is possible if you keep your eyes fixed on the things above and not on men. We remain ready and steady in the doing of God's incredible will as we approach another Memorial of our Lord. I know you two must be cooking up something beautiful for us all, so we extend to you are prayers for the Father’s spirit to rest upon you both in the spiritual season.

March 8, 2014

[From a former Overseer] The pressure is mounting, so we all must know what season were into. That's right, Memorial season. I've been receiving phone calls by brothers at various branches and from headquarters about my knowledge of the authors of AnointedJW and if I had any participation in its running and/or postings. My first reaction was, WHAT? You dare get so personal in my private life and my worship with my God and Father. You have the actual nerve to question my service of over 60 years of faithful service? Dear brother, before I answer you, by what authority do you prevail upon me to answer such probing questions? If you answer by the authority of men of any sort, let me assist you now before you fall deeper into gross error. My freedom as a son of God can only be asked and answered in the spirit and only discerned by the spirit. Now dear brother, are you qualified to take on such a responsibility. After which, I just heard a dial tone. Friends, now is the time appointed by our Father. Don't let golden opportunities to give a witness pass you by. Take a firm stance that's deeply rooted in the Christ or in other words, deeply rooted in TRUTH. Keep your wits about you under test and stick together as brothers in Christ.

**********
March 8, 2014

[From a current Overseer] Dear brother and sister, let me just say, you have got the [Governing Body] on the run! Watch out, be wise at every turn! I have put my reputation on the line in backing your character so do me proud!

March 8, 2014

[From the Philippines] Dear Brothers, Good evening. Thanks for attending to my questions about the Memorial [Question and Response 3/5/14] and baptism [Question and Response 3/4/14], as well as publishing my email. I really find your articles refreshing, assertive yet respectful.  May the grace from above continue to pour on you and your craft. Gratefully yours.

March 7, 2014

[From a former Elder] Dear brother and sister in Christ, thank you both for your thorough article showing the vast contrast of the 1st century way of honoring our Lord with the way it's done these days [A Tale of Two Suppers], excellent brothers! Also the baptism debate [Question and Response 3/4/14] is also food for thought, something that I'd never considered to that degree, so I will have to meditate on the information a little more. You guys’ insight is truly far ranging and I and many others here applaud your wisdom and humility in doing the work of "Going therefore and making disciples...teaching them to observe all the things Jesus had commanded them (Matt.24:19,20). May Jehovah God the Father of us All keep you strong.

[From a former Circuit Overseer]  Hello brother and sister, I'm a bit rushed tonight but I'm really in awe of the simplicity of God's Word, when seen through the eyes of Jesus. I feel at times embarrassed at how blind I was, so thank you for your courage to do and say what's been missing and that is TRUTH.

[From a former District Overseer]  Dear brother and Sister, your words resonates so loudly and deeply within my spirit. Although you may not hear from me and or my wife on a frequent basis, let me reassure you in the most glowing of terms that I believe whole heartily in the efforts and methodology of your mission that has become our mission. It is with your enlightening article that many of us are now worthy of the cup we drink in union with our dear Lord. The Tale of Two Suppers has given me a sound template to discuss with the brothers near and far with the hopes that a rise in courage will sweep through the core of the Organization, it's publishers.  I for one, in handling congregations, I'm much more understanding, tolerant and most of all openly supportive of those who don't just profess but are willing to confess union with Christ. Let us continue in this Acceptable Year to proclaim without fear the plain and open teachings that our King and Leader proclaimed 2000 years ago.

Hello AnointedJW, it's a joy to read uncommon sense in that what you present would seem obvious but because of the "veil" that you mention, quite a bit of the masses don't yet see that the WAY to LIFE is the TRUTH Jesus presented. So me and my 3 teenage children are with you brothers in the plain teachings of Jesus. And thank you for your ministry tips and emails because I was a pioneer for 16 years so these ministry suggestions are really helpful. And if I can be perfectly honest with your readers, I believe fear is the biggest hang up from many others realizing their own Sonship with God. I mean, let's be real, as long as you view those men in New York as the exclusive channel of Jehovah, you will ignore the truth of the message of Jesus. I know, I know, I'm going on and on, but I just want to say we appreciate your hard but thorough articles and experiences.

[From a former Elder] Dear friends, the comparisons in the Tales of Two Suppers drives home the differences that we hope and pray one day will be honored not just by the [Governing Body] but also the entire world. Stupendously written article!

A Tale of Two Suppers is superb.  It is so obvious to see the correct understanding of these Scriptures, yes such ‘blatant disrespect’ of the Governing Body as they mislead the congregations.  It truly is an offense to Christ Our Lord, and literally makes you feel sick thinking of the occasions at the Kingdom Halls. We pray that all who are Sonship conscious will take a firm stand against this offensive occasion. How the heavens will rejoice as each of us stand together and break free from the clutches of a man dictated Memorial that dishonors Christ.

In reading the last [Question and Response 3/2/14] that you wrote, I am moved to write of the need to support this ministry that you have started. As a former [Jehovah’s Witness], I would spend 5-10 dollars a week for literature  and give to the needs of the congregation. I did this in not knowing the wrong teachings of [Watchtower Bible & Tract Society] but out of a pure heart and I feel Jehovah and Jesus used me to answers others prayers because of my faith and trust in him.  Now that I have come to know the simple truths of Jesus teachings, why should I not give support to this ministry? It demands far less than the [Watchtower Society]. 

I am embarrassed for myself and others that we have failed to see this simple need. With the interest that you have created, if we only gave to you less than a dollar a month your needs would be provided as you provide such wonderful food for us. 'The worker is worth of the wage.' If it doesn't come from us, Jesus will use another. I though want the Joy in being a part in helping what I can. Take Care.

[From a Colorado Recovery Mission] Hey Family, we hope all is well with you both.  We have been of course keeping up to date with every word written and have been so moved by the expressions of former Witnesses and even active ones planning such great Memorial Suppers. For us, we are going to have two services because of the outstanding amount of believers from in the missions and their relatives who want to declare and confess their stand in Christ together. So who’s to say how many we will have attending, it should be at least 1200 combined. And we have decided to have a Mexican dinner because it's easy to make and it goes along way for so many. Then of course because it's a rehabilitation facility, we will have grape juice and matza bread all being donated by a big grocery chain. So we are pumped up and excited for all these guys because they have taken the RFC [Rehabbers For Christ] to a whole other level than we had in Los Angeles. We believe this is the Acceptable Year to get things right with God and to change the world, so keep doing your thing and we definitely will keep plugging away. Love you both for so many eternal reasons.
