Jehovah`s Witness/Keeping clean in Gods eyes


Hello Pearl

Trust you are well!

Been reading a few post of yours!
And I seen to be under the understanding that your aim is to keep yourself clean in the eyes of God and Christ!
And away for human hostilely, things that could or would take Gods anointing from you!
These are things that I struggle with, from time to time.
There's doing Gods will, and wanting to do it.
Do you struggle with this from time to time?
How do you get past not caring what they say?

Nice to see you back
Take care

Hello Anonymous,
If you wish to read this with pop-up scriptures, please do, at:

Those who are wise, do seek to be clean in God's eyes (2Cor.7:1; 2Pet.3:14).
We accomplish this through an obedience to the things taught by Christ (2Pet.1:5,6,7,8,9,10; Matt.28:19,20; 2Cor.10:5; 9:13; Eph.5:26; John3:5; 15:3) in addition to the forgiveness of sins afforded us by the blood of Christ (Titus2:14; Matt.20:28; Heb.9:14; 10:10,14; Rev.5:9,10; Acts20:28; Heb.12:23,24,28).
I avoid continued exposure to the hostility of men, because the reaction men have to the truth/light of the scriptures, manifests their heart's desire (John13:20; 8:47; Gal.4:14; 2Thess.2:10,12; Matt.13:11). Once the wrong choice of a man is made clear, we are to be done with them (2Cor.2:15,16; Luke9:5; Matt.7:6; Prov.9:8; 23:9; 26:4; 2Tim.2:14,23; 1Tim.6:3,4; Matt.12:18,19).
Jesus himself felt frustrated, and at times, even angry with those who were spiritually dull, senseless, proud, or self-righteous (Matt.17:17; 14:31; 13:58,57; 23:37,13; Luke24:25; John2:24; 5:42). This did not remove his anointing. Like Paul, we ourselves may even feel "wrathful" (Gal.3:3). Yet we must not go so far as sinning (Eph.4:26,27,29,30,31,32; James1:19,20).
We know that doing the will of God, matters most (Matt.12:50; 7:21; 1John2:17).

How do I get past caring about what those who ridicule and oppose might say?
Jesus taught us to expect adversity (John15:20; 16:2; 2Tim.3:12; 2Pet.3:3; 1Pet.4:12; Matt.5:11,12; Mark13:13). This does not mean that unkind words and deeds do not hurt us, because they do (Acts14:22; 2Cor.6:4; John16:20,33; Matt.5:4; Ps.80:5; 126:5; Prov.12:18; Matt.12:35,36,37; James3:6). We also care greatly, about the harm false teachers can do to their hearers (2Tim.3:13; Luke6:39; 2Cor.4:3).
If we care more about the approval and pleasure of our Heavenly Father, our Master Jesus Christ, and the welfare of others; we are strengthened to endure in fine works, despite the pain others cause us (Matt.25:23; Mark8:34,35; Rev.2:10; 1Pet.1:6,7; 5:10; 4:13,14; James1:2,3,4; John15:8; Gal.6:9; Rom.2:29).

Chosen servants of God cannot fully avoid spiritual conflict with the "stumbling blocks" (Matt.18:7; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13,14; 13:8,7,10). In fact, those called and chosen are to war against their false doctrines (2Cor.10:3,4,5; Rev.17:14; 2:16; Heb.4:12; Rev.19:11,14,8). This conflict between the "wheat and weeds" helps to prove the quality of each Chosen one's work, by which they will be judged by the Master, Christ (Matt.12:37; John12:48; 2Cor.5:10) and will manifest to searchers of truth, which teachers and prophets are approved of by God (1Cor.3:13; Jer.23:29; 1Cor.11:18,19; Mal.3:18; John7:17,18; Matt.7:15,16,17,20).

I hope this reply answers your question.

Love in Christ,

Jehovah`s Witness

PLEASE NOTE THAT MY PROFILE HAS BEEN UPDATED. I have been teaching the Bible since 1976, as well as studying JW publications. I am very familiar with the teachings of the Watchtower. As regards anyone's ability to teach truth, it largely depends upon Holy Spirit. For, without it you have no wisdom or scriptural understanding. I will do my best to assist anyone who asks. I have noticed a couple of warnings about "apostates" within the list of "experts". The definition of "apostate", according to the scriptures, are those who deviate from the truth. Therefore, only the scriptures have the authority to identify such a person (John 17:17). Merely disagreeing with someone in authority, does not constitute true apostasy. Otherwise, Jesus himself would have been an apostate. Jesus' own words afford us ample protection from such wolves. He said, "By their fruits you will recognize those men." Matt.7:17-27. Therefore, by all means, exercise every caution! Your life depends upon you doing so! But Jesus did not give the picture men expect of faithful ones today. He did not point to power, authority, growing numbers, accomplishments, or influence as being the sign of his true anointed disciples (Mark10:42,43; Matt.7:22). He pointed to fine fruit. This would include a love of truth and a clinging to God's word in every teaching (1Peter2:2). This authenticity becomes clear, when teachings are closely examined. So too, are "apostates" revealed, as those who deviate from God's word, or fail to do their utmost, to derive every teaching, from it. (see


I have been a baptized JW for decades. I was enrolled in my Congregation as a regular pioneer, though I did not sign the pledge of allegiance to men on the back of the application. I have read the Bible through many times, had been in the Theocratic Ministry school for decades, and was anointed by Jehovah God, through Jesus Christ, 40 years ago in June. As Organizational doctrine progressively strayed from the scriptures, I made comments during meetings and to Witness friends, including elders. Although I justified all my concerns with scripture, this alone lead to me being disfellowshipped in April, 2012. I continue to consider myself one of Jehovah's true witnesses, because Jehovah himself defines who His witnesses are, at Isa.43:10-12. There He states that they are His "chosen" ones (1Pet.2:9), whom he has called to declare the fact that Jehovah is the only Savior (Isa.43:11)...not men, nor an organization (Psalm146:3). This I faithfully do, and I have been chosen by Him to do so. I accordingly write articles about how the scriptures themselves interpret prophecies which apply to our era. ( The directory of articles can be found in my profile, located there.

I belong to the group chosen and anointed by Jehovah God through Jesus Christ...invited to accept the full course of Christ. If I prove faithful, I hope to belong to the Heavenly Mt. Zion, the Holy City, New Jerusalem.

Publications ....also....

The Scribes and Pharisees took the lead in Jehovah's house of worship in the time of Christ. Jesus had the divine credentials to publicly criticize those men, and he certainly did so. Why? Was he a rebel, only seeking to promote disunity and gain a following for himself? No. Jesus realized how spiritually harmful such leaders are to those who blindly follow them. He was therefore obligated, as were his disciples, to champion scriptural truth; despite the backlash from those in power, and those loyal to those in power. Truth (not power, position, or favor with men), leads to everlasting life. John 17:3,17 The anointed are under obligation to accept the same assignment as Christ. They are divinely commanded, authorized, and qualified to do so.... not by men, but by the truth of the scriptures, and Jehovah's spirit. My education, has been by means of that spirit, as we read..... "And YOU have an anointing from the holy one; all of YOU have knowledge. And as for YOU, the anointing that YOU received from him remains in YOU, and YOU do not need anyone to be teaching YOU; but, as the anointing from him is teaching YOU about all things, and is true and is no lie, and just as it has taught YOU, remain in union with him." 1John2:20,27 Matt.13:55-57; John7:15,16; Acts4:13; John16:13
