In the Friday, December 11, 2020 day text (Examining the Scriptures Daily), the message was that we must never stop praying to Jehovah and that “we need to listen to what Jehovah tells us through his Word and organization.”
The text was from Habakkuk 2:1, which reads,
“At my guardpost I will keep standing, And I will station myself on the rampart. I will keep watch to see what he will speak by means of me And what I will reply when I am reproved.” (Habakkuk 2:1)
It also referenced Romans 12:12.
“Rejoice in the hope. Endure under tribulation. Persevere in prayer.” (Romans 12:12)
On reading “Jehovah’s organization’, I was surprised by the scriptures used, since making a statement like that would require some scriptural back up or support, one would imagine.
At one time, I believed that Jehovah had appointed JW.org to be in charge of His faithful and the reference to ‘Jehovah’s organization’ was accepted by me. However, I now wanted this statement confirmed as fact by God’s Word. So, I started searching for proof.
Last Sunday, December 13, 2020, at our Beroean Pickets Zoom meeting, we were discussing Hebrews 7 and those discussions led us to other scriptures. From that I came to understand that my search was over and I had my answer.
The answer was right in front of me. Jehovah appointed Jesus as High Priest to intervene on our behalf and therefore no human organization is needed.
“The point of what we are saying is this: We do have such a high priest, who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, and who ministers in the sanctuary and true tabernacle set up by the Lord, not by man.” (Hebrews 8:1, 2 BSB)
Hebrews 7:22-27 states that Jesus ‘….has become the guarantee of a better covenant.” Unlike other priests who died, He has a permanent priesthood and is able to save those completely who draw near to God through Him. What better access could there be?
Are therefore not all Christians Jehovah’s congregation through our Lord, Jesus?
