[284] Isaiah 9: Galilee of the nations, the people sitting in darkness saw a great light!

13 Further, after leaving Nazareth, he came and took up residence in Capernaum beside the sea in the districts of Zebulun and Naphtali,
14 that there might be fulfilled what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying:
15 Oh land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, along the road of the sea, on the other side of the Jordan, Galilee of the nations!
16 the people sitting in darkness saw a great light, and as for those sitting in a region of deathly shadow, light rose upon them (Matthew 4).

Isaiah 9 - Gordon/FDS4 thread

1 However, the gloom will not be as when the land had stress, as at the former time when one treated with contempt [looking down on the 2 following groups in the congregation - the am'harez] the land of Zebulun [Toleration] [the people in the WT tolerating the burdens put upon them by the leadership] and the land of Naphtali [My Wrestlings] [JW publishers wrestling with the Scriptures, trying to gain new understandings, not served by the GB] and when at the future [the time of the food of FDS4] one caused [it] to be honored [the mountain of Jehovah to which all nations will stream] -- the way by the sea [baptism into TCC4], in the region of the Jordan [where you cross from the wilderness into the Promised Land, God's Kingdom], Galilee [circuit] of the nations [this circuit is the path of the nations into the Kingdom].
2 The people that were walking in the darkness [spiritual darkness due to old, lame, unsatisfying bread, low-wattage biblical light from GNS2] have seen a great light [the manna, the new wholesome food of God "that their fathers didn't know", the high-wattage biblical floodlights of FDS4]. As for those dwelling in the land of deep shadow/shadow of death [JW-land, the Watchtower congregation, where you are dead in the flesh first due to it having lost its water baptism and then due to it being a false church], light itself has shone upon them [through letters, ads, websites, postings and fax campaigns by the LWs].
3 You have made the nation populous; for it you have made the rejoicing great [when the 2 sticks become 1, when populous JW congregations join up with TCC4]. They have rejoiced before you as with the rejoicing in the harvesttime [the harvest of the conclusion of the system of things. The reaper (TCC4) and the sower (TCC3) rejoice together], as those who are joyful when they divide up the spoil [we will all share the inheritance].
4 For the yoke of their load and the rod upon their shoulders, the staff of the one driving them to work, you have shattered to pieces as in the day of Midian. [The heavy yoke of the Watchtower was shattered, their regulations brought to nothing. The bar across their shoulders, the limiting rules of conduct etc. was removed and the staff who drove them permanently on to more work, more field-service, more preparations etc., their body of overseers was done away with, they were left behind]
5 For every warrior's boot and every mantle rolled in blood have even come to be for burning as food for fire. [Powerful saints and evangelizers contributing to the growth, keeping the fire Jesus started burning brightly]
6 For there has been a child born [Gordon sanctified, born again in 1987Tishri22], to us [TCC3], there has been a son given [a true covenant son of Jesus, Mediator of 2NC] given to us [all sons of the 1AC]; and the princely rule will come to be upon his shoulder [through the key of David: "And I will put the key of the house of David upon his shoulder, and he must open without anyone’s shutting, and he must shut without anyone’s opening" (Isaiah 22:22)]. And his name will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace [quadruple designation so this has 4 word symbolic meanings] [literally Jesus is all these things] [Symbolically: Peter, who became the cornerstone of FDS1 after Jesus gave his position to him having been elevated by Jehovah to be a God to be worshipped, and Russell, the cornerstone of FDS3, the half apostle, are both angels and so are mighty God's in that sense. They are both now kings and so were princes of Peace. Gordon and Paul both have spirit covenants and so are eternal fathers, and both have research churches, and so are wonderful counsellors]

7 To the abundance of the princely rule [in the Kingdom] and to peace [the Sabbath rest for God's children] there will be no end, upon the throne of David and upon his kingdom in order to establish it firmly and to sustain it by means of justice and by means of righteousness, from now on and to time indefinite. The very zeal of Jehovah of armies will do this.

Isaiah 9 Russell/FDS3 thread

1 However, the gloom will not be as when the land had stress, as at the former time when one treated with contempt [looking down on the 2 following groups in the churches of Babylon] the land of Zebulun [Toleration] [enduring under the burden put upon them by the babylonian leadership] and the land of Naphtali [My Wrestlings] [prophetically interested Christians wrestling with the Scriptures, trying to gain new understandings, not served by the mainstream churches] and when at the future [the time of the food of FDS3] one caused [it] to be honored [the restoration of true worship, the temple of the 1NC saints] -- the way by the sea [baptism into TCC3], in the region of the Jordan [crossing over from the wilderness of Babylon to the pasturage of Russell], Galilee [circuit] of the nations [the entrance into the 1NC is again open for believers from the nations].
2 The people that were walking in the darkness [spiritual darkness due to old, lame, unsatisfying bread, low-voltage biblical light from Babylon, the dogma of the rotten churches] have seen a great light [Jesus in a human body in the saints of TCC3]. As for those dwelling in the land of deep shadow/shadow of death [the Babylon System, the congregation of Christendom, where you are dead in the flesh, without a true baptism], light itself has shone upon them [through evangelizing campaigns, gramophone preaching, the "Photo Drama of Creation" (an evangelical tool used by Russell) etc].
3 You have made the nation populous; for it you have made the rejoicing great [rejoicing when numerous members of Babylon joined the church of TCC3]. They have rejoiced before you as with the rejoicing in the harvesttime [the harvest of the remaining 1NC saints], as those who are joyful when they divide up the spoil [believers coming from other churches].
4 For the yoke of their load and the rod upon their shoulders, the staff of the one driving them to work, you have shattered to pieces as in the day of Midian. [The different kind of burdens and regulations and rotten dogmas and rituals of the babylonian churches]
5 For every warriors's boot and every mantle rolled in blood have even come to be for burning as food for fire. [Powerful saints and evangelizers contributing to the growth, keeping the fire Jesus started burning brightly]
6 For there has been a child born [Russell sanctified, born again on 1887Chislev10], to us [those seeking to leave Babylon], there has been a son given [Rutherford commissioned to build TCC3] given to us [all sons of the 1AC]; and the princely rule will come to be upon his shoulder [being a prince or even a king again after the Gentile Times had ended]. And his name will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace [literally Jesus is all these things] [Symbolically: Peter, who became the cornerstone of FDS1 after Jesus gave his position to him having been elevated by Jehovah to be a God to be worshipped, and Russell, the cornerstone of FDS3, the half apostle, are both angels and so are mighty God's in that sense. They are both now kings and so were princes of Peace. Gordon and Paul both have spirit covenants and so are eternal fathers, and both have research churches, and so are wonderful counsellors]
