“In the final part of the days you will understand this”

A continuation of the Jeremiah series One of the last things Jesus said before he ascended back to heaven, he assured his followers that he would be with them all the days until the conclusion of the system, or the end of the age as some translations word it.

I will by no means leave you unpunished

A continuation of the Jeremiah series. Everything connected to the second coming of Christ has been distorted and ultimately concealed. We might suspect that the Devil is the culprit, and, of course, he is. But Satan is only allowed to work his operation of error because it suits God’s purpose to allow for a “deceptive influence” to have its work complete. When the day and hour [...]

The Time of Jacob’s Trouble

God has a purpose and Jehovah’s Witnesses are privileged to know it—at least the general outline of it; albeit, the immediate future is another matter, which is the subject of this article. Jehovah’s eternal purpose is as simple as it is profound. The divine purpose centers around Jesus. This is no revelation. Except, it goes beyond Christ. Jehovah has purposed to adopt 144,000 sons from among [...]

I am bringing calamity first on the city that bears my name

For 23 years Jeremiah spoke the word of Jehovah to the leaders of the Jewish nation. Over and over again, Jeremiah as well as other prophets such as Zephaniah and Habakkuk spoke God’s words of warning. The Jews refused to listen. Consequently, Jehovah’s patience came to an end. Here it is in God’s own words: “‘But you would not listen to me,’ declares Jehovah. ‘Instead you [...]

Good figs and bad figs

A continuation of the Jeremiah series.  The 23rd chapter of Jeremiah established the fact that the denunciations against the wayward shepherds is actually earmarked for the final part of the days. That means that the negligent shepherds are appointed Christian overseers.  In the 24th chapter, Jehovah causes Jeremiah to see two baskets of figs set before the temple. One basket of fruit was good. The other [...]

I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied

“I did not send the prophets, yet they ran. I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied.” — Jeremiah 23:21 Who are God’s people? According to God’s own declaration His people, whom he likens to a flock of sheep, have been entrusted to the care of earthly shepherds. At the time Jeremiah issued Jehovah’s denunciations the Jews were God’s exclusive people and the city of [...]

Oh you who dwell nestled among the cedars

A continuation of the Jeremiah series.  In the 21st chapter of Jeremiah, the last king of Judah summoned Jeremiah to request that the prophet inquire of Jehovah.

Jehovah has named you: Terror All Around

I am devising a scheme against you

A continuation of the Jeremiah series. In the 18th chapter of Jeremiah Jehovah commanded his prophet to go to the workshop of a certain potter as he was working with a lump of clay on the potter’s wheel.
