There are at least 8 million Jehovah's witnesses and millions studying to be witnesses of Almighty God Jehovah, as Jesus was and his followers became as well.
Isaiah 43:10

Having three festivals a year has always been a Scriptural requirement for Almighty God Jehovah's people to be fed spiritually and enjoy association.
Exodus 23:14

The District Conventions are three day assemblies and they are in the Summer, the Special Assembly day is a one day assembly in the Winter, and the Circuit Assembly is a two day assembly in the Spring.

Almighty God Jehovah has placed his only begotten son Jesus as the head of the world wide congregation of Jehovah's wintesses, Jesus is also our reigning KIng in heaven, who is ruling as King of kings and Lord of lords over this earth. John 18:36

Only subjects of God's Kingdom are obedient and help others to become subjects as well, the only way to have Almighty God Jehovah's approval for survival of the end of this world ruled by Satan the Devil.
John 17:3

What biblical proof do you have that Christian's are under the rule of the Old Law making it life and death to go to the festivals of YHWH?

Do you honestly realize what you are saying and teachings? Paul spent his entire life's minstery in defending against apostates trying to bring Christian's back under the rule of the Old Law. What scriptures can you post proving the apostle put the old law and its festivals upon Christian's the body of Christ Jesus?

Jehovah's witnesses do not live under the Law of Moses, we live under the Law of Christ, you need to read my posts more carefully.
No one is forced to serve Almighty God Jehovah, you either want to gather together in pure worship or you do not. Following the pattern of the three festivals a year is a good way to have organized assemblies or conventions. They are great times of happiness for God's people, attending weekly meetings is a requirement of Jehovah's witnesses.

(Hebrews 10:23-25) 23 Let us hold fast the public declaration of our hope without wavering, for he is faithful that promised. 24 And let us consider one another to incite to love and fine works, 25 not forsaking the gathering of ourselves together, as some have the custom, but encouraging one another, and all the more so as YOU behold the day drawing near.

This is a bold statement to make. Their is no scriptural backing for christians to uphold this practice today, or even at any time since the new covenant.

There is also no biblical requirement for Christians to attend meetings once a week. However, the GB has made this a requirement for JWs even though it is not a biblical instruction to attend weekly. Being a JW means that you will be suject to orders/requirements made by man and not by God.

I think you need to read your own post carefully, you stated it was set upon Christian's too meet three times a years. Moreover, I am very much aware of the teachings of JW"s and how they do state to those of their group laws and rules as though they are still under the old law.

Furthermore, making something manatory is not of free will no matter how you cloak it in God's word. In fact, your being on this website shows your not being honest at least with yourself.

I said the three festival requirements of Jehovah God for his people, is a pattern, not a law as the original festivals were for the Jews only.

It is people like you, who take things out of context and twist what is said to suit your understanding. The requirement to gather together for association and spiritual feeding is a joy for those who love Jehovah God. And it is a commandment from Jesus to gather together for our upbuilding in the last days, we do follow the directions of Jesus.

All of Jehovah's witnesses are united in a world wide brotherhood, have and attend weekly meetings as a witness to the nations.

(Acts 15:14-20) 14 Sym&#8242;e·on has related thoroughly how God for the first time turned his attention to the nations to take out of them a people for his name. 15 And with this the words of the Prophets agree, just as it is written, 16 ‘After these things I shall return and rebuild the booth of David that is fallen down; and I shall rebuild its ruins and erect it again, 17 in order that those who remain of the men may earnestly seek Jehovah, together with people of all the nations, people who are called by my name, says Jehovah, who is doing these things, 18 known from of old.’
(2 Peter 3:15, 16). . .Furthermore, consider the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul according to the wisdom given him also wrote YOU, 16 speaking about these things as he does also in all [his] letters. In them, however, are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unsteady are twisting, as [they do] also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction.

Now you are publicly slandering me for stating your own words, by two witnesses that read them the same on this forum. Be wise and think about what you are stating publicly. You have clearfied you position which is good.

Secondly, we are under the commandment of love not the old commandments as you have already stated in your last post. the commandment together to gather is good, but there is another commandment just as strong and pointed not to gather when those teachings are against the Christ in conduct and fruits of the flesh.

1Tim.3:5 holding a form of godliness, but having denied the power thereof. Turn away from these, also.

The members of the WTS deny Christ Jesus by putting faith in their GB,as Christ upon this earth. They enforce hundreds of rules upon it members one of which you just stated. They make it mantory to meet.

It seems you are putting the emphasis on the faithful slave of Jesus Christ, that is the servant who feeds the sheep of Jesus at the proper time.

That faithful slave is appointed by the King to care for the household of the King and take care of it, to see it runs smoothly doing the will of the King.

(Matthew 24:45-47). . .“Who really is the faithful and discreet slave whom his master appointed over his domestics, to give them their food at the proper time? 46 Happy is that slave if his master on arriving finds him doing so. 47 Truly I say to YOU, He will appoint him over all his belongings.

I know I am a true Christian, I have been thoroughly taught God's word by that slave, and I understand the requirements of imitating Jesus, to do the work that he assigned me to do in these last days.

(Matthew 28:18-20). . .And Jesus approached and spoke to them, saying:“All authority has been given me in heaven and on the earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded YOU. And, look! I am with YOU all the days until the conclusion of the system of things.”

Your Bible will probably say until the end of the world.

The Christ is not a legal requirement legislated by a human organization. The natural man does not receive anything from God, it cannot know him, because he is known by God's Holy Spirit ( a WTS teaching).

1Cor.2:10 But to us, God revealed them through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.
2:11 For who among men knows the things of a man, except the spirit of the man, which is in him? Even so, no one knows the things of God, except God's Spirit. 2:12 But we received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might know the things that were freely given to us by God. 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual things.
2:14 Now the natural man doesn't receive the things of God's Spirit, for they are foolishness to him, and he can't know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 2:15 But he who is spiritual discerns all things, and he himself is judged by no one.
2:16 "For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he should instruct him?"{Isaiah 40:13} But we have Christ's mind.

The WTS has good and bad fruit upon its branches, which Christ stated is not possible for a good tree. Now if the WTS was the Christ and a person only worshiped in Spirit and truth. Subsequently, requiring God Holy Spirit there would be no bad fruit upon it. Any honest heart person can see the bad fruit upon the branches of the WTS tree spread throughout the world.

They can clearly understand that it is not the Christ, nor does it speak as God's prophet upon earth as boast in by its members simply by its fruit. It is the legalized approach that you have stated here within that confuses the fruit upon the tree of the WTS for its members.

Hence, putting faith in it GB and its teachings can only lead into death, not salvation by the one name given under heaven by which to be saved. Christ Jesus has no bad fruit upon him, its that simple, and it is by Christ Jesus righteousness, not some man, or organization we are saved by. The problem you face is admitting you walk by sight, because it require faith to believe in Christ Jesus as the good tree and it require faith to worship in Spirit and truth, and in not giving glory to men, few will find it.

There is only “one faithful slave” Jesus Christ appointed as a prophet to all the nations, by God, and rewarded by God. Those making up the body of Christ Jesus are slaves, not the distorted teachings of slaves the WTS teaches. Christ will reward each slave of his body when he comes with God's holy angels to take them out of the world wide field of weeds, not before as the WTS teaches.

All slaves in Christ are good for nothing doing what they ought, they are not righteous, by doing something like running the WTS as the GB elevating themselves over fellow slaves. The receive righteousness not from self-good, or good works but through the body of Christ Jesus, his righteousness and good works.

If they endure to the end of their life, in faith, in Christ Jesus, not enduring in good works of WTS by self-will. Christ Jesus salves do not judge themselves worthy or unworthy because they are not declared righteous by their own judgments or given righteousness by their own righteousness, but rather by what God judges them as in Christ Jesus as being the one, righteous one.

1Cor. 4:1 So let a man think of us as Christ's servants, and stewards of God's mysteries. 4:2 Here, moreover, it is required of stewards, that they be found faithful. 4:3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you, or by man's judgment. Yes, I don't judge my own self. 4:4 For I know nothing against myself. Yet I am not justified by this, but he who judges me is the Lord.
4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each man will get his praise from God.

The only emphasis I've place anything upon in thousand's of writings is the Christ and him alone impaled for our sins.

You are truly mistaken. Jehovah's witnesses do not preach the Watchtower as God's authority, only the Bible is God's authority for man to obey.

The people who taught you what you believe are blind.
It is sad to see spiritual blindness, because it shows the tight grip Satan has on your eyes of insight of understanding. Matthew 15:14

Unless you are in the spiritual ark of Almighty God Jehovah's approval, you will never survive the end of this world and inherit the new world soon to be here.
That is Scriptural, not a teaching from men.
Revelation 7:14
