QUESTION: What is the mark of the beast and how can one avoid having such a mark? __________ ANSWER: That is a good question. It is a question that Jehovah’s Witnesses should seriously reconsider. But to better appreciate the significance of the 666 mark of the beast the question ought to be rephrased to ask: What and when is the mark of the beast? Allow me to [...]
This is a revised and expanded article that appeared on the original Watchman site in 2005.
The April 1st, 2004, Watchtower Magazine carried an article on the meaning of Revelation’s mysterious 666 – the name and mark of the wild beast. Under the subheading on page four, the Watchtower asks the rhetorical question: “Do you enjoy solving a mystery?” Notably, that statement implies that the Watchtower Society has already solved the mystery. But have they really? In keeping with the apostolic exhortation: “Do not believe every inspired expression, but test the inspired expressions to see whether they originate with God,” we do well to take a closer look at this important topic.
QUESTION: What are your thoughts on the “Brexit”? Does this have anything to do with Bible prophecy? ANSWER: Britain’s exit from the European Union seems to have taken everyone by surprise. Except it should be pointed out that it is not a done deal yet. The referendum may be nullified or overturned. That said, whether the United Kingdom actually leaves the Union is irrelevant, as it [...]
QUESTION: The Scriptures depicting the eighth king, seem more like a riddle, such as Samson's riddle to the Philistines, than a statement. For instance, how can a kingdom "that was", still not be around or already present? Since this takes a mind with wisdom, isn't Revelation telling us that the 8th king is already here? Or that it has already been, but is cloaked so-to-speak, rather [...]
Tuesday, September 8 God . . . will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed.—Dan. 2:44. The Bible Students spent decades pointing out that the year 1914 would be significant. Many people at that time were optimistic. As one writer states: “The world of 1914 was full of hope and promise.” With the outbreak of World War I later that year, however, Bible prophecy came [...]
QUESTION: In view of your latest article on the new world order, how does Revelation 13:11-16 fit in? ANSWER: Revelation 13:11-17 states: “Then I saw another wild beast ascending out of the earth, and it had two horns like a lamb, but it began speaking like a dragon. It exercises all the authority of the first wild beast in its sight. And it makes the earth [...]

Unfortunately, I corrected about a half dozen typos that appear in the hard copy and PDF. (Too much work to fix them) THE APPROACHING HOUR OF TESTING Jehovah has always used [...]
Question: Robert, you’ve spoken about the mark of the beast before, that it is symbolic. Obviously, the eighth king hasn’t risen, but things have changed since your article was written and reading the other posts about QR codes on the forehead, where should we stand on this, and will Jehovah tell us about the mark or is it for us to see? And what if we [...]
