Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing (epiphany) of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Titus 2:13
EPIPHANY MESSENGER – WHAT POSITION IN LITTLE FLOCK?
Scriptures are cited from the King James (Authorized) Version, unless stated otherwise.
Question: What position will the Epiphany Messenger occupy in the Little Flock?
Answer: According to the Scriptures, “that servant” is the one at our Lord’s right hand, and the Apostle Paul is the one at His left, for the Bible shows that Paul, the leading brother of the Jewish Harvest, will have charge, under our Lord acting through “that servant” of the 12,000 who will be the chief ones of the 144,000. The other eleven Apostles will each have under his charge, under the Lord Jesus acting through “that servant,” of the other eleven parts of the 144,000, that is, the other eleven parts of the antitypical temple.
It would seem that the Epiphany Messenger would come next in rank after the twelve Apostles in the Kingdom, having charge under our Lord acting through “that servant” of the Great Company and Youthful Worthies. The angel of the church of Laodicea consists of “that servant” and the Epiphany Messenger; and these as the seventh angel of Revelation will trumpet forth the Truth as the seventh trumpet the whole thousand years. “That servant,” under our Lord, will give the Truth pertinent to the twelve parts of the antitypical tabernacle and the Epiphany Messenger will give the Truth pertinent to the Great Company and the Youthful Worthies during that period.
Jesus stating that the Twelve who followed Him, St. Paul taking the place of Judas, would sit upon twelve thrones judging the twelve tribes of spiritual Israel and through them judging, ruling, over the twelve tribes of Millennial Israel; and the twelve gates of heavenly Jerusalem also prove that the twelve Apostles will be superior to anyone else in the Kingdom apart from our Lord and “that servant.” The Epiphany Messenger’s place, according to the above will be that of the fourteenth individual under our Lord in the Kingdom.
