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,’ [...]

Regarding Ruth Underwood

There are now some eight billion human souls on this planet. Jehovah God knows each and every one. He also knows those who are spiritually inclined and groping for the truth. They are most precious to him. Jesus said the Kingdom of God belongs to them.  Over the years, the Watchtower has related many experiences where householders had been praying for answers, and in a short [...]

. “Be dressed and ready and have your lamps burning, and you should be like men waiting for their master to return from the marriage, so when he comes and knocks, they may at once open to him.” – Luke 12:35-36 Who will endure the day of his coming?

Spiritual paradise or famine?

2024-01-30T15:30:57-05:00January 30th, 2024|WT Review|

This post is part three of a review of the Watchtower’s article on spiritual paradise. (Click here for part one. And here for part two) The article lists five bullet points as proof that Jehovah’s Witnesses are in spiritual paradise. Let us consider the first one. Paragraph five states: 5 Healthy and refreshed. Isaiah’s prophecy draws a vivid contrast between what life is like for those inside [...]

World War Three Update

2023-10-14T19:48:29-04:00August 26th, 2023|Jeremiah|

As Nebuchadnezzar’s war machine began to lay siege to Jerusalem Jeremiah found himself in detention in the doomed city. It was at the order of King Zedekiah that Jeremiah was under guard. The king did not like the prophet’s message. This is proof that Zedekiah had gotten the message.  Although I have never had any official response to my many open letters sent directly to [...]
