The Mortal Wound and the Parousia

2023-11-19T06:54:06-05:00September 7th, 2020|Featured, Mailbag|

How can I use scripture and supporting argument to explain that the parousia of Christ does not begin until the death-stroke of the 7th king occurs. Is there anything in the Scriptures to support the chronological order, first the death-stroke of the 7th king, then the parousia begins? I appreciate your question. Unfortunately, Jehovah’s Witnesses have no appreciation of the implications and ramifications of your [...]

Video and transcript. originally posted on 27. 9. 2018 As a follow-up to yesterday's daily word, about the revealing, I thought, I would consider one aspect of the book of Daniel, that has a bearing upon the revealing of Jesus Christ, that is the visible presence of Jesus. Well, the Book of Daniel, you might say, it's all about the second coming of Jesus Christ. [...]

Commentary on the Daily Text of Jehovah's Witnesses Monday, May 29 I am with you.—Matt. 28:20. Over the years our King has given us tools to use to help prepare the hearts of millions to receive the Kingdom message. Some tools were useful for perhaps a decade or so, while others have proved to be of timeless value. But all these tools have allowed us to develop [...]

Maintaining the Devil’s Invisible Parousia Hoax

2021-05-05T15:35:35-04:00October 8th, 2016|WT Review|

This is a continuation of commentary on the God’s Kingdom Rules! Bible study material for the week of October 10th, 2016. Jehovah’s Witnesses well know the power that lies can have over people. Anyone who has ever taken up the Bible and gone out to try to engage householders, or who has simply had a conversation with an unbelieving friend or relative, knows firsthand how difficult [...]

Future Parousia of Christ and Its Impact

2019-09-24T10:21:05-04:00June 10th, 2016|Commentary|

Friday, June 10 You will not leave me in the Grave.—Ps. 16:10. One reason why we know that Jesus’ resurrection occurred is the zeal that his disciples showed in proclaiming it. Zealously bearing witness to the resurrection of the Christ exposed them to persecution, suffering, and death. If Jesus had not been raised up—if it was all a hoax—why would Peter risk his life to proclaim [...]

QUESTION: In relation to the following passage of scripture: “While he was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached him privately, saying: “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your presence and of the conclusion of the system of things?”  What will be the sign of Jesus Christ's presence? b. Will we living today see the conclusion [...]

How is the parousia like the days of Noah?

2019-10-01T13:27:26-04:00March 1st, 2014|Mailbag|

In the Reasoning from the Scriptures book, page 341, a question is asked: - Do the events associated with Christ’s presence take place in a very brief time or over a period of years? But the answers given in that book are not quite satisfactory. And after reading the articles from your website I understand the parousia is a short period of time.  Which is correct? However, [...]

Daniel and the Parousia

2020-12-24T04:22:40-05:00March 21st, 2012|Daniel|

After having gone into mourning for three weeks in response to  experiencing the jarring vision of the climatic great military service  between the two rival kings, Daniel had an astounding experience of the  utmost relevance for Jehovah’s Witnesses today.

As the aged prophet walked on the bank of the Tigris River with some companions, he suddenly was confronted with a supernatural sight. Daniel relates the extraterrestrial encounter this way:

I also proceeded to raise my eyes and see, and here was a certain man clothed in linen, with his hips girded with gold of Uphaz. And his body was like chrysolite, and his face like the appearance of lightning, and his eyes like fiery torches, and his arms and the place of his feet were like the sight of burnished copper, and the sound of his words was like the sound of a crowd. And I saw, I Daniel by myself, the appearance; but as for the men that happened to be with me, they did not see the appearance. However, there was a great trembling that fell upon them, so that they went running away in hiding themselves. And I—I was left remaining by myself, so that I saw this great appearance. And there was left remaining in me no power, and my own dignity became changed upon me to ruination, and I retained no power. And I began hearing the sound of his words; and while I was hearing the sound of his words, I myself also happened to be fast asleep upon my face, with my face to the earth.

Prior to this great appearance Daniel had a similar encounter with the angel Gabriel, which also left the prophet in a trembling, lifeless heap on the ground. But apparently, the second appearance was even more overwhelming than the first.
