Hello. William E Enoch Sr here. You may know that the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania, Inc. has taught until October of this year the Faithful and Discreet Slave was identified with the Apostles. The WBTS also taught the Master, Jesus, returned invisibly, in the form of “His presence, in 1914 then in 1919 the Master appointed the FDS, as made up of the anointed remnant on Earth, over His belongings.
As of October 2012, the WBTS, now switched the date of the appointment of the FDS from the first century CE to 1919 CE. The WBTS also now switched the time of the Master placing the FDS over all His belongings to a future time when He comes as a thief in the night.
The real “New Light” are the dates and times. Now that 1919 is the “new” date of the FDS appointment, then the 1914 date of Christ’s “invisible presence” is brought into question. Also, the GB slowly began working its way into authority after the Watch Tower Presidency was brought to a close. To sound as though the GB had all along been the FDS, the GB cleaverly worked into the announcement this dialog taken from the jwdotorg site:
“From 1919 on, there has always been a small group of anointed Christians at the world headquarters of Jehovah’s Witnesses. They have supervised our worldwide preaching work and have been directly involved in preparing and dispensing spiritual food. In recent years, that group has been closely identified with the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
The evidence points to the following conclusion:“The faithful and discreet slave” was appointed over Jesus’ domestics in 1919. That slave is the small, composite group of anointed brothers serving at world headquarters during Christ’s presence who are directly involved in preparing and dispensing spiritual food. When this group work together as the Governing Body, they act as “the faithful and discreet slave.”
In an effort to grab more authority by strongly alluding to themselves as now being the FDS, the GB had to manipulate dates. To appease the WBTS members, aka Jehovah’s Witnesses, the GB skillfully made all JWs domestics.
