"Woe to those who yearn for the day of Jehovah! What, then, will the day of Jehovah mean for you? It will be darkness, and not light. It will be like a man who flees from a lion and is confronted by a bear, And when he enters his house and leans his hand against the wall, a snake bites him. Will not the day of Jehovah be darkness, and not light; Will it not have gloom, and not brightness?" - New World Translation

HABAKKUK


According to Habakkuk the last empire is destined to pillage and enslave the whole world! That is no small feat. How might such a calamity come about? In modern times communistic governments have simply revoked the rights of their citizens and confiscated all private property. However, capitalism has the same capacity to dispossess—albeit in less overt ways. This may be accomplished through promoting excessive indebtedness, because as the Bible observes—the borrower becomes a slave of the lender. Governments may also enslave and impoverish their subjects through graduated heavier taxation, sudden currency devaluation, or hyper-inflating the amount of currency in circulation, thus rendering it worth less and less until eventually it becomes worthless

In view of the world’s precarious economic and financial condition presently; as individuals, corporations, and nations slowly sink deeper and deeper into a quagmire of unpayable debt, there is now the looming specter of a debt default or hyperinflation triggering a sudden, catastrophic, meltdown-scenario with the potential to simply disintegrate the entire debt-burdened economic structure. Because of the interconnectedness of the global financial system, the collapse of a single large institution or nation may set off the dreaded chain-reaction, the so-called domino scenario, which could bring down the entire house of cards, as some have described the system. Evidently the collapse of Lehman Brothers in September 2008 brought the system to within hours of just such a catastrophic collapse. The bailout of AIG was said to have been necessary to prevent the banking system from seizing up as well. 

Without doubt the computer-wired age means that the entire world may be virtually foreclosed on in the event of a systemic crash. As has been demonstrated in recent months, stock markets can crash with breathtaking suddenness. Currencies may be devalued. Giant corporations that employ tens of thousands of people may go bankrupt. Banks that seem rock solid prove to be an illusion. Money itself is destined by the prophets to become as so much paper confetti to be thrown into the streets—indicating a dollar-centric repeat of the catastrophe that befall Weimar Germany in 1923, when a wheelbarrow full of Reichsmarks would not buy a loaf of bread. How quickly might civilization change if common everyday financial transactions became impossible?

Articles on the Watchtower's child abuse scandal and lawsuits embroiling the Society.

e-Watchman condensed

The Watchtower Society has served to restore the basic truth, lost since the apostasy of the second century. And in so doing the organization has served as a rallying point for those whom God has called into his kingdom. But just like the kingdoms of Israel and Judah and the original congregation, elements within the Society have become apostate. Consequently, all of Jehovah’s Witnesses are under the influence of the foretold man of lawlessness. A great hour of test lies ahead.

The foretold apostasy subsequent to the manifestation of Jesus Christ is reflected in the Watchtower’s secret 10-year partnership with the United Nations, as well as their ongoing efforts to crush victims of child abuse. Jehovah’s Witnesses have also fallen victim to organizational idolatry. e-Watchman calls attention to the Watchtower’s unseemly doings and places the Society in the light of God’s prophetic denunciation to be enunciated at the coming of Christ.

1914 and all that the Watchtower has attached to it, is the foretold “operation of error,” or as the newly revised NWT words it: “That is why God lets a deluding influence mislead them so that they may come to believe the lie.”

e-Watchman re-sets the parousia and time of the end to the immediate future, the advent of which will discredit the Watchtower beyond repair and stumble many who do not accept the truth, as Jesus foretold. Then, though, the spirit will be poured out upon the faithful in full measure, as never before, in order for a final witness to be given to the world – “and then the end will come.”

The Watchtower has mis-interpreted virtually every prophecy relevant to the time of the end – because of the “deluding influence” God allows. Hence, the seven-headed beast has not received its mortal head wound yet. The beast has not ascended from the abyss yet. Mankind has not received the 666 mark of the beast yet. The king of the north has not launched into his final campaign and subjugated the king of the south yet. The king fierce in countenance has not brought the holy ones to ruin yet. The upshot is, we are facing World War Three, global financial collapse and the imposition of a tyrannical one-world government and world-wide genocide.

O Jehovah, your loyal love reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness up to the clouds
