Now that we know that Jesus has entered into the family name of Jehovah we can see our future very clearly.
34 Jesus answered them: Is it not written in your Law, I said: You are gods? (John 10).
Yes, even the lowliest beggar in cardboard city or the youngest child scraping a living from the garbage heaps of the third world, too humble even to raise their eyes to meet the gaze of passers by, will one day rule an entire galaxy as a God with a face too glorious for their subjects even to look upon.
And the Muslim girl who today hides her face behind a veil in public will one day rule over men as their God with her subjects hiding their faces from her. For all human beings are products of the love and the generosity of Jehovah, who having elevated his angelic son Jesus Christ to the status of God, will not fail to show the same love for and confidence in many others of his sons and daughters. We are children of God, our future is to be Gods just like our father. That is the race that we come from, that is the family we are talking about, and there is the jealousy of Satan, the one who could by now have become a God like Jehovah had he not failed his test. He provides the obstacles which we must overcome in order to graduate from the divine Kindergarten.
So the true religion is bi-theistic. Therefore the Lord's Witnesses have become the Lords' Witnesses. This minor syntactical modification to our name, represents a major theological earthquake. Every church in this world bar one (to our knowledge) is worshipping the wrong number of Gods (1 God or 3 Gods)! I mean if you cannot get that one right, what hope do you have? It is like our second God once said:
14 Let them be. Blind guides is what they are. If, then, a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit (Matthew 15).
So now we have a chance to see the true magnificence of Jesus' words in Mark 10:35-45...
35 And James and John, the 2 sons of
Zebedee [endowment], stepped up to
him and said to him: Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever it is we ask you
36 He said to them: What do you want me to do for you?
37 They said to him: Grant us to sit down, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory [once you become divine - they really did not know what they were asking for! Some endowment!]
38 But Jesus said to them: You do not know what you are asking for. Are you able to drink the cup which I am drinking, or to be baptized with the baptism with which I am being baptized? [the baptism into divinity. Jesus got everlasting life after he offered to ransom Adam, since he became head of the second holy spirit at that time. We know he gave his everlasting life when he died, so he must have had it before he died in order to be able to give it to us. So Jesus must have known by the time he came down that he was going to be baptised into divinity. He must have known by then that when he gave up both his human and his angelic soul as ransoms he was going to get a divine soul. But he did not know this when he made the ransom offer at the time of Adam's sin.]
39 They said to him: We are able. At that Jesus said to them: The cup I am drinking you will drink, and with the baptism with which I am being baptized you will be baptized [indeed both John and James will one day become Gods to be worshipped like Jehovah, but you two are not necessarily the two who will sit and my right and left and be the first two whom I lead into divinity].
40 However, this sitting down at my right or at my left is not mine to give, but it belongs to those for whom it has been prepared [Jesus does not have authority to choose who is baptised into divinity. That is an authority above the heavens].
41 Well, when the 10 others heard about it, they started to be indignant at James and John.
42 But Jesus, after calling them to him, said to them: You know that those who appear to be ruling the nations lord it over them and their great ones wield authority over them.
43 This is not the way among you; but whoever wants to become great among you must be your minister,
44 and whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of all.
45 For even the Son of man came, not to be ministered to, but to minister and to give his soul a ransom in exchange for many (Mark 10).
Jesus became a God to be worshipped like Jehovah after he gave his life as a ransom. He was given the name that is above every other name named, which name is Jehovah.
20 with which he has operated in the case of the Christ when he
raised him up from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly
21 far above every government and authority and power and lordship and every name named, not only in this system of things, but also in that to come (Ephesians 1).
Jesus, once he became a God to be worshipped, sat at God's right hand - ready to act as God's CEO. But we read in verse 38 that Jesus had a baptism with which he was being baptised and we know that the result of this cleansing was that he became a God. So Jesus is declaring that there is a baptism into divinity which he took. Furthermore sitting down at God's right hand appears to be a component of this baptism test or the result of it. We would of course expect there to be a baptism in the process by which angels become Gods, because being a God is the highest form of cleanliness. It means that you have perfect unbreakable love and perfect unbreakable righteousness. As Jesus said in the sermon on the mount...
48 you must accordingly be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect (Matthew 5).
If you are perfect then you are a God, like Jehovah, the rock, whose activity is perfect (Deuteronomy 32:4).
And having realised what kind of baptism Jesus was talking about, we can now gaze in wonder at the true meaning of verse 39...
39 They said to him: We are able. At that Jesus said to them: The cup I am drinking you will drink, and with the baptism with which I am being baptized you will be baptized.
So both John and James were to become Gods like Jesus at some point! But not necessarily immediately because Jesus did not have the authority himself to choose who would sit at his right and at his left which appears to be the position of the two whom God chooses to take to be baptized into divinity under the leadership of Jesus. Now the only authority that Jesus does not have is the authority to choose candidates for baptism into divinity. He himself declared that he has all other authority...
18 And Jesus approached and spoke to them, saying: All authority has been given me in heaven and on the earth (Matthew28).
But not the authority to choose a God who is over and above the heavens. That authority rests with Jehovah. But plainly the process is that 2 are chosen to sit one at the right hand and one at the left, and these two are baptised into the divinity test which if it follows after the type set by Jesus involves giving ones soul as a ransom and being a slave to your brothers.
19 Having gone your way therefore, make disciples of all the nations, baptising them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28 Kingdom Interlinear Bible of the Watchtower).
We shall see in I32 that the Father is Abraham, the son is Isaac or Jacob and the Holy Spirit is the holy spirit (actually the wife of Jesus, the holy spirit of the Kingdom of God, the 3rd holy spirit - not the wife of the Jehovah the second holy spirit).
But there is a larger fulfilment still of this amazing scripture. For the path to divinity is as follows.
1. Gain everlasting life, i.e. be baptised into the ARC, i.e. become a permanent angelic son of Jesus.
2. Enter into one or other holy spirit, becoming a part of the wife of a God - this being the baptism into the name of the holy spirit. for one cannot become a God without first joining a divine administration.
3. Become the head of that holy spirit, the Chief Executive Officer of a God.
4. Become a God.
So Gabriel, who is the head of the 2HSC (the second holy spirit covenant for Jehovah's present wife) is on Step 3. And Peter, who is the head of the 1NC, the 2nd holy spirit covenant for Jesus' present wife, is also on step 3.
Not quite sure where Melchizedek is in his path to divinity. He is Jesus' opposite number on earth in the Kingdom of God.
By cleaning behind the fridge thoroughly every day? Regrettably no. Women are equal to men in salvation status and therefore have a prescribed path to divinity just as men have. We are not sure quite how it works though. They probably have to be the administrative wife of a male member of the holy spirit for some time. We need to do more research on this. Whether they need to be the administrative wife of the head of the holy spirit we do not know. But that would seem to make sense. Perhaps God picked an administrative wife of Jesus, and perhaps she is now a God? Certainly all 144,000 angels in the holy spirit each have one female administrative helper a personal assistant if you like.
So men have family wives and business 'wives' and church 'wives' basically. The business wife is the personal assistant, and the church wife is the mother of the group managed by the man.
9 And you well know that Jehovah your God is the [true] God, the faithful God, keeping covenant and loving-kindness in the case of those who love him and those who keep his commandments to 1,000 generations, (Deuteronomy 7 NWT)
So you need to spend 1,000 generation at school (plus however many generations you choose to spend somewhere else), before you reach perfect love and perfect righteousness. Is a day to Jehovah as 1,000 generations? Is it 1,000 years in the Kingdom of God and then 1,000 generation before you become a God?
