Just as there are many “gods” . . . , there is actually to us one God. —1 Cor. 8:5, 6. The first-century Christian congregation was made up of Jews, Greeks, Romans, and people of other nationalities. They had different religious backgrounds, customs, and sensibilities. Because of that, some had difficulty accepting the new way of worship or fully relinquishing [...]
Another installment in the Revelation series. This program considers the last few verses of the 11th chapter of Revelation.
I appeal to Caesar! —Acts 25:11. Since 1914, human governments have become rivals to God’s Kingdom, which will soon execute judgment on the nations by destroying them. (Ps. 2:2, 7-9) God lets the world’s political structure remain because it provides a measure of stability that, in turn, helps us to preach the good news of the [...]
The appearance and death of the two witnesses is one of the most enigmatic facets of Revelation. Sadly, although Jehovah's Witnesses have studied the Watchtower's Grand Climax book numerous times, they have no idea what the two witnesses represent or the profound implications for the future.
First, I want to thanks all those who have made monthly pledges to support this website. You may or may not have noticed, however, but I canceled my Podbean pledge subscription. I had noticed some irregularities between what the site showed were pledges and what was actually transferred to my bank account. It was not [...]
Friday, November 23 I have decided to put an end to all flesh. —Gen. 6:13. Noah lived in a world that was “filled with violence” and immorality. Although Noah faithfully preached Jehovah’s warning message, he could not force wicked people around him to accept that message, nor could he make the Flood come any sooner. Noah [...]
A faithful witness will not lie. —Prov. 14:5. Honesty is basic to Christianity. Satan is “the father of the lie.” And Ananias and his wife lost their lives because of lying. We do not want to imitate such ones —we avoid lying. Is that, though, as far as our honesty goes? Actually, our honesty should [...]
God called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. —1 Pet. 2:9. A few courageous men at the dawn of the 16th century began to translate God’s Word into the languages spoken by the common people. And as the Bible became available, people did read it. As they read, they asked questions: ‘Where in God’s Word is [...]
Kingdom bulletin #15 It is rumored that at the 2018 Annual Meeting the Governing Body announced that Russia is the prophetic king of the north. This should have been anticipated in view of the fact that the Pay Attention to Daniel’s Prophecy commentary left open the possibility that one of the former members of [...]
The opening of the seventh seal commences the judgments of God, beginning first with the house of God, initiated by the first four angels blowing their horns. The Watchtower, of course, teaches that the judgments contained in Revelation have already been realized, that they were mere public proclamations issued by Judge Rutherford [...]

First in a series of talks on the prophecy of Revelation - and the things to come.

We might say that Daniel had a close encounter with an extraterrestrial being. It startled him so greatly that he became as a dead man and his personal dignity was changed to ruination, as the prophet described. Only after the visiting angel strengthened and reassured Daniel was he able to recover his [...]
The apostle Paul referred to the ends of the systems -- plural, as in more than one system ending. What did he mean? What systems are there? How will they end? When?
The prophecy of Isaiah sheds light upon the return of Christ and the collapse of the Watchtower and what is to come afterward.
The signs are there. Everywhere. Massive debt bubbles. An even more gargantuan derivatives bubble. Emerging markets crashing. And the nuclear powers being drawn into a senseless conflict. Something has to give.
The Watchtower claims to be Jehovah's appointed watchman, dutifully poised atop the watchtower on the lookout for the outbreak of the great tribulation. However, not all is as it seems. When Jesus spoke of you not knowing the day or hour he was not speaking about the tribulation, but about the master [...]
QUESTIONS: 1) What exactly will Jesus be looking for when he returns? 2)Is the self-appointed watchman stumbling Jehovah's sheep? 3)What does your standing with Christ and Jehovah look like? 4)What about your certainty about no Warwick move? 5) Might the "Greeks" symbolize non -JW's during the end?
The prophecy of Zephaniah is all about the day of Jehovah, which is to say "the day of the Lord" -- the second coming of Jesus Christ. The first order of business is to judge his slaves as to the faithfulness in his absence. That is what the prophecy portrays. For more [...]

"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 [...]
Entertaining questions from viewers. What is the proof there is there in the Bible for such a thing as a spiritual Israel? Where will Armageddon be fought? And might the demons be responsible for the great earthquakes that are destined to occur during the conclusion?
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 [...]
The Watchtower repeats over and over that the great tribulation will begin when the UN attacks religion. This year's symposium on the things to come is no different. This video is a rebuttal of the Governing Body's interpretation.
A critical review of the 2018, Be Courageous, Watchtower convention symposium on the things relating to prophecy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhvtT...

KINGDOM BULLETIN #14 “This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah says: ‘Look! A calamity, a unique calamity, is coming. An end is coming; the end will come; it will rouse itself against you. Look!
