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

Are Jehovah’s Witnesses misled?

QUESTION: If the man of lawlessness is operating undetected, even among the chosen ones right within Christ's congregation, have not the chosen ones already been misled or deceived? After all, only Jehovah and Jesus can spot counterfeit Christians, correct? Absolutely. This is the point. It is the message I have been hammering on all these years. Jehovah’s Witnesses are under a deluding influence —an operation of [...]

The rise of the last king

1. Do you feel paragraph 27 (below) is accurate? 2. Do you have a more accurate Daniel image (legs down) than the one above?  3. Are these statements accurate: WW1 was fomented to weaken any threats to the British Empire. WW2 was fomented to further weaken and make nations more indebted and to (re)establish a nation of Israel in Palestine that will be the future home [...]

“I will remove the boundaries of peoples”

With the global scope of a migration/immigration “crisis” do we find any reference to prophecy regarding this major trend?  Bible prophecy focuses almost exclusively on developments that have to do with the coming of Christ —either his first or more especially, his epic, Second Coming. The long-running prophecy of the kings of the north and south divulges some clues that may shed some light on [...]

Babylon, Gog, and King of the North

Please kindly explain Gog of Magog, King of the North and Babylon the great. Do they all mean the same thing? There are subtle differences, but similarities. Two of the entities have been around a long time, since before the time of Christ; that being the king of the north and Babylon the Great. Gog of Magog comes on the scene in the final part of [...]

On the Third Day He Will Raise Us Up

Can you provide a commentary on Hosea 6:1-2? Those verses read: “Come, and let us return to Jehovah, for he has torn us to pieces, but he will heal us. He struck us, but he will bind our wounds. He will revive us after two days. On the third day he will raise us up, and we will live before him.” As everyone who has [...]

Unless those days were cut short…

Question: There are concerns that the earth might be struck by a large asteroid or comet and that the Yellow Stone caldera might erupt, either of which could destroy the world. Do you think something like this might be what Armageddon is? The earth has had numerous catastrophes over the few billion years of its existence. It has taken direct hits from huge meteors and comets. [...]

What is the meaning of prophetic chronology?

Please allow me to ask about what is your take on Daniel's 7 times, 2300, 1260, 1290 and 1335 days since his prophecy of 70 weeks of years pointed correctly to the first coming of Jesus? Ever since C.T. Russell first came on the scene the Bible Students and now Jehovah’s Witnesses, have been mesmerized by the seven times of Daniel’s prophecy. What is particularly interesting [...]

Who are the glorious ones of Jude?

Who exactly are the “glorious ones” and who is the “they” spoken about in the letter of Jude? The brief letter of Jude was written “to called ones who are loved by God the Father and preserved for Jesus Christ,” for the express purpose of exhorting them to put up a hard fight for the faith; the reason being, because “certain men have slipped in among [...]

How did Abraham “see” Jesus’ day?

Question: What did Jesus mean when he told the Jews at John 8:56: “Abraham your father rejoiced greatly at the prospect of seeing my day, and he saw it and rejoiced.” How did Abraham see Jesus’ day? The Jews claimed that Abraham was their father. That is because they knew that Abraham was the genetic progenitor of the Israelites. (Although he himself was not a Jew [...]

Why so many kingdom halls for sale?

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 the organization has apparently been tempted to implement a scheme to [...]
