Part two of Watchtower Review of I Will Shake All the Nations How have people reacted to this message? Most have reacted negatively. (Read Psalm 2:1-3.) The nations have become agitated. They refuse to accept Jehovah’s appointed Ruler. They do not view the Kingdom message we preach as “good news.” In fact, some governments have even banned the preaching work! Even though many of the rulers of these [...]

Commentary on daily text of Jehovah's Witnesses Sunday, January 8 Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing that he has a short period of time.—Rev. 12:12. In 1914, war broke out between nations of Europe—a war that spread and engulfed the whole world. By the time it ended in 1918, terrible food shortages had [...]
Thursday, April 14 God made you alive.—Eph. 2:1. What a contrast there is between young servants of Jehovah and youths of this world! Many who do not serve Jehovah lead a self-centered way of life, focusing only on what they want. Some researchers call them “Generation Me.” By the way they talk and dress, they give evidence of disdain for the older generation, whom they view [...]
Friday, January 15 He gave five talents to one, two to another, and one to still another.—Matt. 25:15. In the parable of the talents, Jesus clearly reveals an obligation resting on his anointed followers. We need to understand the meaning of this parable, for it affects all true Christians, whether they have the hope of a heavenly reward or of an earthly one. Jesus gave the parable [...]
Saturday, January 2 The Devil . . . is a liar and the father of the lie. —John 8:44. Satan’s lies about the dead slander Jehovah. Those lies include the false teaching that the dead suffer fiery torment. Such teachings slander God! How so? In effect, they attribute to him, the God of love, the personality of the Devil. How does that make you feel? More important, how [...]
Friday, September 8 He will crush your head.—Gen. 3:15. When Jesus was born, Satan knew that this newborn child would grow up to become the promised Messiah. Would Satan reason that taking the life of a baby was going too far? Satan has no noble code of ethics. And with regard to the child Jesus, Satan did not hesitate to act. How? King Herod was greatly upset when [...]
Who will rule the world? That is the paramount issue of the day. Will it be a bloc of allied nations such as is emerging in Asia presently, an alliance of Russia, China, India and Iran? Or, will the Anglo-dominated unipolar world prevail? Will there be a one-world government in the future? What does the Bible say? For hundreds of years, the message contained in the [...]
This is a continuation in the series examining the July 2022 Watchtower. With the May 2022 JW Broadcast, the Governing Body has confirmed its unofficial policy that unity is paramount. Unity is more important than truth. As long as everyone believes and embraces the same teaching, even if it is false, it is preferable to the alternative. Sure, the best solution would be for the Watchtower [...]
There is a snippet of an article appearing this week on the home page of JW dot org that poses the question: What is the Coming of Christ? Long-time readers of e-Watchman likely realize this is my special field of interest and research. I have thoroughly examined the relevant scriptures on this fascinating topic, as well as the Watchtower’s teaching on the subject. So, let’s [...]
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 [...]
