Funerals of 2x2s.
The workers have warned their friends, "You don't drift into harbor.", insinuating that you don't go to heaven by accident.
What is drifting? Denying our sin, calling God a liar, not knowing God, rejecting Jesus, not keeping Jesus' commandments and sayings, - the 2x2 lifestyle.
Funerals of 2x2s are hard for Christians. It is a sad time when you see people have been misled by the workers and Satan all these years come to the end of life and realize that they have rejected Jesus Christ and chosen to be liked by the workers instead. They don't even have the workers assurance of salvation.
Reject His Commandments? Deny your Sin? Didn't Repent?
When a 2x2 dies, having rejected the law of God, God's commandments and having rejected God's message of "repent and believe" , they go do Hades (the place of the dead), where they sleep there, as the Bible teaches, waiting until the second resurrection.
The 2x2s have rejected Jesus's commandments and live in sin, having chosen to believe the workers "gospel" instead. Sadly the workers won't even tell them if they are saved or not. Not that the workers would know, since workers deny the judgments of God even against themselves.
1 John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
While the overseers and workers biggest boast and claim is that they go out like the apostles, this is an open lie. Ever read Matthew 10? Luke 10? Workers don't raise the dead, cast out demons, heal the sick etc. Workers don't even preach the new testament - which is God's law written in our minds and on our hearts.
Revelation 2:2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
Even after it is published all over the world on the Internet, workers still deny being started by the false prophet William Irvine and lie about their history. Only liars lie about their origins to deceive people.
Revelation 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
Outside God's Will
2x2s like to think about being "in the center of God's will." So I mentioned to a 2x2 that they don't even know what the will of God is. I asked them in all their years of attending meetings had they ever heard the will and testament of Jesus Christ? They got very angry. Why should they be angry at me? I'm not the one who kept it from them. You can read the will of Jesus Christ - Hebrews 8. Yes, it's the same law of God.
John 6:38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
1 John 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
Do you keep the commandments of God? Can you begin to list them? If you don't keep the commandments, and don't even know them, do you think you even know God?
You won't be judged by workers at the great white throne. Judgment is according to law - the law of God. Jesus said so.
John 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
There is no eternal torment for people who have rejected the gospel of Jesus Christ, but there is eternal punishment. They will be thrown into the lake of fire, and their soul will be destroyed - forever. This is the eternal punishment as taught by the apostles. It is called the second death and happens after the second resurrection.
The Great White Throne
Revelation 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Rising in Judgment
Matthew 12:42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.
Want to Inherit Eternal Life
If you would like to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ, it is this: "Repent of your sins." What is sin? It is transgression of God's law. (1 John 3:4) What is the law of God? It is the ten commandments. (Deuteronomy 5) It is God's will that we keep his commandments. (Hebrews 8) This is explained clearly in all the Bibles of the world and explained in Hebrews 8.
Is God's law In Your Mind and Heart?
If God's law isn't in your mind and heart, how in the world are you going to explain this to God when you are part of the second resurrection and face God on the great white throne?
Assurance of the Saved
For those of us who love God, keep his commandments and love the brethren (disciples of God), then we know we are saved. God's word assures us of salvation:
We will reign with Christ a thousand years.
Revelation 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
2x2 Funeral Notes
On the right are links to notes about funerals of 2x2s on often what workers believe.
The Bible never teaches that professing or going to meetings will save you. God wants us to believe on him, receive his word, repent of our sins, accept Jesus Christ, keep his commandments and make disciples of the whole world.
Workers may speak at funerals and think they have the last say, but God is the beginning and the end.
