What is the difference between the Law and the Spirit? Between the letter and the meaning? Between idolatry and truth?

What is the main difference between the Spirit and the Law? I have repeatedly given a simple example that helps to understand this difference. The difference between law and Spirit is like the difference between a sail and a wind. The sail wears out over time (or does not correspond to the change in the situation) and it needs to be constantly patched. But if you are the wind, then you can fly. You can fly with or without a sail. You just fly wherever you want and you have no obstacles. Everything that changes around you cannot stop or deceive you. This is spiritual freedom. And the sail is necessarily needed only by those who do not know how to fly.

This helps to understand the difference between the thinking of Christ and the thinking of the lawyers. The lawyers worshipped the letter (the sail), and Jesus worshipped God, who is the Spirit (John 4:21-24). That’s why Jesus was constantly destroying the dogmas of His opponents. All His activities were aimed at this.

What does it mean to think in dogmas? It means thinking according to the law, not according to the Spirit. In relation to the Scriptures, it means to see only the literal text, but not to see the global meanings. It also means the inability to distinguish evil human dogmas from real Christian teachings.

But God even here laughed at the fans of “exact wordings”. Why haven’t the original documents of the Christian Scriptures reached us? Why did God allow this? Read More

E-Watchman and The Open Letter to Genco Giuseppe

Dear friend!

I want to help you, and since I have no other way to contact you I have to do it in this open letter. In this PDF file I got your public page on the Disqus website. It contains your comments on the blog of the so-called e-watchman aka Robert King. I was surprised to see the discussion feed of your comments contains a lot of direct (or translated into English) my site’s quotes that you posted on Robert’s blog. Like the prophet Daniel, you have done a great job in order to translate my entire website for yourself (by using an online translator) to understand the prophecies better. I am pleased how you wanted to help his readers in this way, and it seems to me you are a kind person. So I want to tell you more.

I am sure Robert King is aware of the existence of my website and its contents. You can ask him about it directly. Perhaps he will deny it, but not everything is as simple as it seems at first glance. It is an amazing coincidence because the thoughts that he began to write in his articles over the past year were like a response to my articles. The main things in which he was wrong is clearly seen from my articles. Besides, about a year ago I wrote a letter to Robert King in the contact form of his website. You can see this in the screenshot by clicking the Spoiler 1 below. Read More

Talking about future anointed ones

Reader: I just started reading your material and would like to make a brief comment on your article ‘Who should partake of the bread and wine,’ from 2015, where you say that all ‘Christians’ are in the new covenant etc.

As a [former] JW you are aware that the vast majority of redeemable mankind is destined for life here on earth, but that the whole NT does not concern itself at all with this hope, but rather entirely focuses on the affairs of those with the heavenly destiny.

Hence, while even angels are desiring to peer into the things concerning the anointed, it is not surprising, nor even wrong, for those who have not been called to this destiny, namely those who by default entertain the hope of eternal life here on earth, to be interested in these things, even though neither they nor the angels are actual participants nor sharers in the glory that is going to be revealed in us.

There are a lot of scriptural points to consider here, for example, both in Rev 7 and Mat 25, which deal with this matter, we have only two groups of people, Christ’s brothers and those who did good to them, and, the 144000 and the great crowed respectively, leaving us with but one group [outside of the anointed] who will be saved.

Interestingly, in Mat 25, the sheep [great crowd equivalent in Rev 7] are such as UNKNOWINGLY do good to Christ’s brothers, hence people who could not possibly be ‘dedicated, baptized Christians with an earthly hope,’ because how could such be surprised when Jesus pays them their reward of entering into life, for which they would have already hoped and dedicated their Christian lives for, if they really were in the new covenant along with the anointed?

The real Christ, and why the persecutors will pierce His Body

Yes, they will “pierce” Jesus again. It is written in Revelation 1:7:

Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. (NAS)

Who are we talking about here? Although some people think that these people will be the Romans who pierced Him in the first century, it must be understood that these Romans are long dead. Therefore, they will not be able to see anyone – until they resurrect from the dead. But if the resurrection begins only after the coming of Christ, who will pierce Him again? Just from the title of the article, an attentive reader of the Bible probably guessed what kind of “Body” will be pierced by people from among those who saw His return.

Their false ideas about Jesus

When dealing with religious people, it is impossible not to see how distorted their ideas about Jesus are. For example, they are sure that He was immensely kind and constantly said kind words. And so, they say, we should be the same! To do this, you need to look at each other with gentle eyes, be in a clean suit or a new kerchief. You can not raise the voice, and shout – God forbids! On the contrary, you need to speak only in an unctuous voice. And of course, you should joy and smile at those who come to the meeting again – after all, we are “followers of Christ”. You need to try, because the visitor must see the “spirit of Christ” at the meeting! However, later on, the new convert is confronted with a very different reality often and soon.

Because when people talk about an overly sweet and polite Christ, they are clearly not thinking about the Scriptures and are content with very superficial ideas.

When you talk to them about Jesus whipping out the temple money changers, they say usually:

It was Jesus!
Okay,” you say, “and the prophets? and the apostles? Weren’t they just as harsh when they gave their opponents a direct rebuke?
Yes,” the “polite” religious people answer, and immediately say: “BUT they were prophets and apostles!

Then the final question remains: if they were Christ and the prophets, why did their contemporaries not recognize them as God’s servants? Read More
