Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Locusts of Joel

2022-05-02T09:52:09-04:00January 22nd, 2020|Bulletins|

KINGDOM BULLETIN #16 I recently watched the 2019 Annual Meeting presentation on JW Broadcast. I was especially interested in the part presented by David Splane on the Watchtower’s adjusted understanding of Joel. My interest had been piqued months earlier as a result of rumors circulating on the Internet to the effect that the Governing Body no longer considered Jehovah’s Witnesses to be symbolized by the [...]

An introduction to Joel, indeed!

2019-09-20T12:50:53-04:00October 31st, 2017|WT Review|

From the time of J.F. Rutherford the Watchtower has explained the book of Joel in the most absurd way imaginable. The locusts and creeping caterpillars supposedly represent Jehovah’s Witnesses who devour the harvest of Christendom’s fertile fields of operation, forcing the terrified clergy to beseech Jehovah for relief from the hordes of unstoppable ministers who are scaling over their protective walls and sneaking through their windows [...]

Jehovah’s Witnesses & the Locusts of Joel

2019-09-25T12:15:08-04:00August 23rd, 2015|Commentary|

Sunday, August 23 We shall devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.—Acts 6:4. Like those who took the lead in the first century, Christian elders who oversee the preaching work today are devoted “to the ministry of the word.” As these brothers make decisions, they seek direction from God’s Word, making it ‘a lamp to their foot and a light to their roadway,’ [...]

Hear this, you elders, and pay attention

This is a consideration of study article #29 — Support Our Overseer Jesus Jesus said the good news will be preached first in all the world and then the end will come. Christ also foretold that he would appoint a slave to provide food at the right time. Let us consider a few aspects of this important topic. Paragraph four states:  4. Jesus stated that the [...]

What is the sign of the last days?

2022-04-03T16:54:40-04:00April 3rd, 2022|WT Review|

jw.org has taken to posting brief articles with short bullet points on current topics. As I have done with the Watchtower Review column for many years this post will examine the validity of the article: What Is the Sign of “the Last Days,” or “End Times”? (The recycled article appearing on jw dot org has been reviewed before but what follows is more detailed.) What [...]

Whenever they are saying “peace and security”

2022-01-29T11:38:10-05:00January 29th, 2022|Page One|

JW Broadcast has uploaded a video entitled: Remain Watchful for “Peace and Security!” This topic has been considered and reconsidered on this site for many years; and of course, Jehovah’s Witnesses are frequently reminded of it in publications and discourses. To be sure, it is a compelling prophecy given the fact that God has provided a roadside marker, as it were, a signal to affirm the [...]

I am devising a scheme against you

2021-12-07T11:23:09-05:00December 7th, 2021|Jeremiah|

A continuation of the Jeremiah series. In the 18th chapter of Jeremiah Jehovah commanded his prophet to go to the workshop of a certain potter as he was working with a lump of clay on the potter’s wheel. The piece the potter was shaping became ruined and so he reworked it into a different shaped vessel. Jehovah then made a comparison, saying to Jeremiah: “‘Can I [...]

The King of the North Will Storm

2021-09-15T11:00:36-04:00September 15th, 2021|Mailbag|

I was listening to podcast 83, you were talking about the ”pushing” from America, which you said there hasn’t been a significant pushing yet. When the king of the north floods over, will we know it’s the empire? I ask because Jehovah’s Witnesses have been led to believe it’s Russia, so will it be obvious who it is? There is a reason Jehovah’s Witnesses (or anyone else) [...]

THE DAYS ARE NEAR AND EVERY VISION WILL TAKE PLACE

2021-03-14T18:21:29-04:00March 14th, 2021|Bulletins|

For the past 150 years the Watchtower has boldly interpreted Bible prophecy in an attempt to reveal the things to come and place itself as the city of light. Consequently, the flock has been convinced that Christ has already returned and we are living deep in the time of the end, which is believed to have begun in 1914.  In reality, because the seers have [...]
