The apostle Paul referred to the ends of the systems -- plural, as in more than one system ending. What did he mean? What systems are there? How will they end? When?
The prophecy of Isaiah sheds light upon the return of Christ and the collapse of the Watchtower and what is to come afterward.
The signs are there. Everywhere. Massive debt bubbles. An even more gargantuan derivatives bubble. Emerging markets crashing. And the nuclear powers being drawn into a senseless conflict. Something has to give.
The Watchtower claims to be Jehovah's appointed watchman, dutifully poised atop the watchtower on the lookout for the outbreak of the great tribulation. However, not all is as it seems. When Jesus spoke of you not knowing the day or hour he was not speaking about the tribulation, but about the master [...]
QUESTIONS: 1) What exactly will Jesus be looking for when he returns? 2)Is the self-appointed watchman stumbling Jehovah's sheep? 3)What does your standing with Christ and Jehovah look like? 4)What about your certainty about no Warwick move? 5) Might the "Greeks" symbolize non -JW's during the end?
The prophecy of Zephaniah is all about the day of Jehovah, which is to say "the day of the Lord" -- the second coming of Jesus Christ. The first order of business is to judge his slaves as to the faithfulness in his absence. That is what the prophecy portrays. For more [...]

"Although the Watchtower asserts that the vision of Habakkuk pertains to the destruction of Christendom, which would mean that the Chaldean symbolizes the eighth king, they do not even attempt to explain the prophecy in that light. True, according to the vision of Habakkuk the work that Jehovah was working originally had [...]
Entertaining questions from viewers. What is the proof there is there in the Bible for such a thing as a spiritual Israel? Where will Armageddon be fought? And might the demons be responsible for the great earthquakes that are destined to occur during the conclusion?
The Watchtower teaches that Christ liberated the Bible Students from captivity to the world empire of false religion, Babylon the Great, back in 1919. However, since then individuals wishing to heed the command to "get out of her my people" must withdraw from their church affiliation, and in so doing get out [...]
The Watchtower repeats over and over that the great tribulation will begin when the UN attacks religion. This year's symposium on the things to come is no different. This video is a rebuttal of the Governing Body's interpretation.
A critical review of the 2018, Be Courageous, Watchtower convention symposium on the things relating to prophecy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhvtT...
This is the first of what will hopefully be regular, daily videos on a variety of topics, including questions from viewers and readers and commentary on the Watchtower's Daily Text, or world updates in light of Bible prophecy. This program is based on the Daily Text Saturday, August 18 You have been saved [...]
KINGDOM BULLETIN #14 “This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah says: ‘Look! A calamity, a unique calamity, is coming. An end is coming; the end will come; it will rouse itself against you. Look! It is coming. Your turn has come, you who inhabit the land. The time is coming, the day is near. There [...]
QUESTION: Why is the Watchtower closing down and selling so many kingdom halls? Are that many JW’s leaving the organization? I really have no insight into the Watchtower’s financial state. The Watchtower is a private corporation and is not required to publicly disclose its financials. What I do know, though, is that the leadership of [...]
Hello Friends. One of our longtime readers here has a relative who suffered a tragic house fire and is in need. He has set up a Go Fund Me page and has asked me to post a link to it. Over the past year, many of you have generously pledged a monthly offering to help support [...]
Back around 20 years ago when I discerned that “Egypt” in prophecy symbolizes America and portrays what is to befall the greatest nation in the world during the conclusion, I could not really appreciate the significance of Isaiah 19:2, which states: “I will incite Egyptians against Egyptians, and they will fight one another, each against [...]
I've heard you say before that what actually triggers Armageddon is when the Beast and/or Gog murders the remaining seed of chosen ones. This is a very impactful and weighty truth that highlights the significance of their role in representing the Kingdom. It also shines a light on what I see happening with the Organization’s [...]
After a six month hiatus, this episode considers a variety of questions, such as: What is a thousand years to Satan? An unbaptized person is wondering if he could better help his congregation by not getting baptized. A sister inquirers how much is enough as regards putting up with the Watchtower's hypocrisy? How do [...]
QUESTION: Do you agree with the WT explanation of Matthew 24:12 regarding the love of the greater number growing cold? The context seems to possibly hint otherwise. (Questions from Readers in October 1, 1984, Watchtower- 2nd question) Frankly, no. The Watchtower article linked to by the questioner was published 34 years ago. In the interim, [...]
QUESTION: I am wondering if perhaps the moving of the capital of Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is part of the disgusting thing on holy ground? In a word, No. Although it is the central feature of end-times theology for various evangelical sects and cults, the establishment of Israel as a nation in 1948 has nothing [...]
I may have just debunked the Bible: Q: If the Genesis account is to be believed, how would we explain: 1. How did Kangaroos make it all the way to just Australia from the Mountains of Ararat ? In geologic studies there are two schools of thought —Uniformatarianism and Catastrophism. The dominate view that [...]
QUESTION: (Rev. 13: 14,15) Is it true that the WT teaches that the wild beast that received the sword-stroke was the League of Nations? —and that the healed beast was/is the revived League now known as the U.N.? This is how I always interpreted their teaching. To me this makes sense when looking back at [...]
QUESTION: Matt. 25:31. How do you see this separating actually taking place and over how long of a period of time? 9 billion people, 5 minutes each = mega waking hours. First, we should not suppose that there will not be a drastic population reduction when the horses of the Apocalypse are unleashed. According to [...]
QUESTION: Is there any Bible example(s) where Israelites or early Christians were under a "deluding influence"? The deluding influence --formerly called an “operation of error”--is a unique phenomenon associated with the return of Christ. In context, Paul was warning the brothers —who, as it turns out, is us —not to accept any announcements as authentic, [...]
America has had a special role in the outworking of Jehovah’s purpose. In what way? Knowing, as we do, that God’s purpose is to have the good news preached throughout the earth, it was obviously by divine providence that the reappearance of an anointed congregation in the latter part of the 19th century took place [...]
QUESTION: Jehovah’s Witnesses have long understood the facets of the sign of Christ’s presence to be a description of conditions that would precede the great tribulation. My question is, are the various facets of the sign that Jesus describes merely a description of the great tribulation, rather than events that lead up to it? There [...]
Quite a bit is made of the fact that the Greek Scriptures, the so-called New Testament, does not use God’s personal name, such as it appears in the Hebrew Scriptures thousands of times, most commonly translated as Jehovah. However, even the most ancient Greek texts are copies, perhaps even copies of copies. The oldest fragments [...]
The expression “the day of Jehovah” appears almost two dozen times in the Hebrew Scriptures —most notably in the prophecies of Joel (5) and Zephaniah (7). Additionally the New World Translation uses the related terms “Jehovah’s day” and “the day belonging to Jehovah” in a couple of places —not counting the so-called New Testament. [...]
Jehovah’s Witnesses used to be heard saying “these are interesting times.” Being somewhat out of the loop these past few years I cannot say whether that phrase is still bandied about. If not, I recommend that it be resurrected, because these really are interesting times. Having come of age during the so-called Cold War, the [...]
QUESTION: You've written at various times about the influence of Masonry within the Watchtower organization over the years, so I would like to have your thoughts on a recent adjustment in the New World Translation. In the 1984 edition, at Hosea 12:14, the NWT translators chose to use "Grand Master," and likewise at Malachi [...]
QUESTION: Does the "inspired" recorded story of Jonah set a precedence for Jehovah to change his mind and delay the world’s destruction? —Especially upon those nations which have little to no say in world affairs or at the U.N. or who "know not their left hand from their right?" (Hindus, Buddhists, Shintoists, Islamists, etc... including third [...]
QUESTION: Luke 11:18, Jesus: "If Satan is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand?” If all of the world's kingdoms are Satan's, and, if the Anglo-American world power is to be the last before the Kingdom stone not cut by hands strikes the feet of the Daniel image; and, if Great Britain and America became [...]
QUESTION: The Bible says that young David unnecessarily obtained an extra 100 foreskins, killing/mutilating an extra amount of men for King Saul and yet the Bible says that Jehovah’s spirit "continued with him" after this dirty deed. The Bible also says: "Do not become mutilators of the flesh..." and "look out for those who mutilate the [...]
QUESTION: With 8 million JW's being so misguided, how are we to explain/understand/apply Jesus’ parting words at Matt. 28:20 ? Was the "conclusion" he was referring to including or only the destruction in 70ce? Being "with you all the days..." -Who has he been "with" for all what days? "All" means all, or does [...]
