New World Order – Habakkuk

"Although the Watchtower asserts that the vision of Habakkuk pertains to the destruction of Christendom, which would mean that the Chaldean symbolizes the eighth king, they do not even attempt to explain the prophecy in that light. True, according to the vision of Habakkuk the work that Jehovah was working originally had [...]

Watchtower Convention Review (pt 3)

The Watchtower teaches that Christ liberated the Bible Students from captivity to the world empire of false religion, Babylon the Great, back in 1919. However, since then individuals wishing to heed the command to "get out of her my people" must withdraw from their church affiliation, and in so doing get out [...]

Why so many kingdom halls for sale?

QUESTION: Why is the Watchtower closing down and selling so many kingdom halls? Are that many JW’s leaving the organization? I really have no insight into the Watchtower’s financial state. The Watchtower is a private corporation and is not required to publicly disclose its financials. What I do know, though, is that the leadership of [...]

War is just a shot away

Back around 20 years ago when I discerned that “Egypt” in prophecy symbolizes America and portrays what is to befall the greatest nation in the world during the conclusion, I could not really appreciate the significance of Isaiah 19:2, which states: “I will incite Egyptians against Egyptians, and they will fight one another, each against [...]

How does Armageddon come about?

I've heard you say before that what actually triggers Armageddon is when the Beast and/or Gog murders the remaining seed of chosen ones. This is a very impactful and weighty truth that highlights the significance of their role in representing the Kingdom. It also shines a light on what I see happening with the Organization’s [...]

The love of the greater number will grow cold

QUESTION: Do you agree with the WT explanation of Matthew 24:12 regarding the love of the greater number growing cold? The context seems to possibly hint otherwise. (Questions from Readers in October 1, 1984, Watchtower- 2nd question) Frankly, no. The Watchtower article linked to by the questioner was published 34 years ago. In the interim, [...]

Does Israel in the Middle East factor into prophecy?

QUESTION: I am wondering if perhaps the moving of the capital of Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is part of the disgusting thing on holy ground? In a word, No. Although it is the central feature of end-times theology for various evangelical sects and cults, the establishment of Israel as a nation in 1948 has nothing [...]

Noah’s Flood and Kangaroo Migration

I may have just debunked the Bible: Q: If the Genesis account is to be believed, how would we explain: 1. How did Kangaroos make it all the way to just Australia from the Mountains of Ararat ? In geologic studies there are two schools of thought —Uniformatarianism and Catastrophism. The dominate view that [...]

Did the League of Nations fulfill prophecy?

QUESTION: (Rev. 13: 14,15)  Is it true that the WT teaches that the wild beast that received the sword-stroke was the League of Nations?  —and that the healed beast was/is the revived League now known as the U.N.? This is how I always interpreted their teaching. To me this makes sense when looking back at [...]

Delusions, past and present

QUESTION: Is there any Bible example(s) where Israelites or early Christians were under a "deluding influence"? The deluding influence --formerly called an “operation of error”--is a unique phenomenon associated with the return of Christ. In context, Paul was warning the brothers —who, as it turns out, is us —not to accept any announcements as authentic, [...]

The fall of America in the time of the end

America has had a special role in the outworking of Jehovah’s purpose. In what way? Knowing, as we do, that God’s purpose is to have the good news preached throughout the earth, it was obviously by divine providence that the reappearance of an anointed congregation in the latter part of the 19th century took place [...]

Then there will be great tribulation

QUESTION: Jehovah’s Witnesses have long understood the facets of the sign of Christ’s presence to be a description of conditions that would precede the great tribulation. My question is, are the various facets of the sign that Jesus describes merely a description of the great tribulation, rather than events that lead up to it? There [...]

Blessed is he who comes in Jehovah’s name

Quite a bit is made of the fact that the Greek Scriptures, the so-called New Testament, does not  use God’s personal name, such as it appears in the Hebrew Scriptures thousands of times, most commonly translated as Jehovah. However, even the most ancient Greek texts are copies, perhaps even copies of copies. The oldest fragments [...]

The terrifying presence of Jehovah

The expression “the day of Jehovah” appears almost two dozen times in the Hebrew Scriptures —most notably in the prophecies of Joel (5) and Zephaniah (7). Additionally the New World Translation uses the related terms “Jehovah’s day” and “the day belonging to Jehovah” in a couple of places —not counting the so-called New Testament. [...]

The world has suddenly changed

Jehovah’s Witnesses used to be heard saying “these are interesting times.” Being somewhat out of the loop these past few years I cannot say whether that phrase is still bandied about. If not, I recommend that it be resurrected, because these really are interesting times. Having come of age during the so-called Cold War, the [...]
