Questions from readers concerning Bible doctrines and issues confronting Jehovah’s Witnesses.

The Mortal Wound and the Parousia

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 [...]

The Now-Emerging Eighth King

Robert, would you explain please your statement “the now-emergent eighth king.” How can this be prior to the destruction of the seventh king? Thanks. Just to clarify, I think “emergent” was a typo. The spell checker is usually a writer’s best friend. Sometimes, though, it can be very treacherous. I intended to say “now-emerging” —as in the process of coming forth, not intending to imply [...]

What about the little flock and the other sheep?

Someone posted a comment on your website the other day stating that the little flock was Jewish Christians and the other sheep is gentile believers. You didn’t respond to the comment, but would you explain why that is not true? I am always happy to answer questions. First, it is recommended that we consider the context of any verse in question. By doing so we [...]

The Coming Storm

Do you think now Satan has been hurled down and confined to the earth or may be coming this fall? I do not think Satan and his angels have already been hurled down from heaven— certainly not in 1914, nor at any time since then. As for this coming autumn, Jesus said: “Concerning that day and hour nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens [...]

Covid 19 and the Machinations of Satan

Do you see CV19 as a machination of Satan to slow the preaching work, or, as Jehovah causing what the Watchtower deserves? The lockdown has impacted Jehovah’s Witnesses, that is for sure. A couple of months ago who would have imagined that the Watchtower would shutter every kingdom hall, cancel assemblies and the summer conventions and cease the public ministry? But unless something unexpected happens in [...]

Why does God allow his name to be hidden?

At John 17:26 Jesus said: "I have made your name known to them.” And at Matthew 6:9-10 Jesus says to pray for God's name to be sanctified and John 12:28 Jesus says "God glorify your name.” Despite the overwhelming scripture that illustrates the Almighty has His own unique name... what reason do you think the Tetragrammaton wasn't riddled throughout the new testament and used by the [...]

Coronavirus- Is it Biological Warfare?

Hello Seer: Is the current virus du jour of man-made or of natural origin? Was the 1918 Spanish flu of natural origin or? Why do military bases always seem to be in the link? The technology did not exist a century ago to manufacture biological agents. It seems the Great War itself was the root cause of the pandemic as soldiers returning home from the bloody [...]

Why has Jehovah taken so long?

QUESTION: What is the reason Jehovah has waited this long to bring about his purpose? Its obvious man cannot rule himself. Have all these years really been necessary, if so for what? The Bible acknowledges that God has subjected mankind to futility. Paul explained: “For the creation was subjected to futility, not by its own will, but through the one who subjected it, on the [...]

What role will women play?

1) Does the faithful and discreet slave include all anointed brothers at bethel or just the Governing Body? Jesus indicated that he will appoint a slave to spiritually feed his body of attendants their food at the proper time. When we consider that Jesus commanded his disciples to preach the good news to the entire world, we can better appreciate what is involved. The food at [...]

Who is the Prince of princes?

Why do you refer to Jesus as the Prince of princes when the book of Daniel refers to him as one of the foremost princes? The person who became Jesus has lived the most extraordinary life. Prior to his becoming human Jesus was a spirit creature named Michael. Being a son of the King made him a prince as well —one of many angelic sons or [...]
