Commentary feature suspended

//Commentary feature suspended

It hasn’t exactly been a daily commentary. On average more like every other day —exhibited by the fact that over the course of the roughly past two years I have published 366 commentaries. It was good discipline, imposing a sort of daily writing deadline upon myself. But after 366 commentaries on the Watchtower’s Daily Text, it is becoming rather repetitive since the subject matter is more or less determined by the Watchtower. While the organization has no problem repeating itself, even ad nauseam, I find it rather tedious. Therefore, I have determined to suspend this column –at least for now. 

I think my time and limited mental energies can be better spent writing less frequent but more in-depth articles, as well as re-focusing on producing videos and podcasts.

    I hope for lessons, if possible. It makes me feel good. Thank you, Mr. King.

    Hello Rober
    You did a great job by instructing us the Bible. No elder today can supply so much spiritual food as you did. I appreciate your hard work in studying and explaining the true meaning of Bible prophecy. Only by reading your site I could understand better the meaning of events that happen today. Others who do not read this site remain in darkness. Too bad that all of my fellow witnesses around me cannot read and understand Bible. They repeat the same old teachings of WT without personal study. And they hope to be in the new world. But how wrong they are. I try to talk with brothers about real meaning of events but they like zombies repear nonsense of WT. Some elders know i do not support WT beliefs and they do not talk to me much.

    So thank you Robert and may Jehovah bless your service.

  • Simpletruth

    We definitely understand brother:-) However, you did an awesome thing by doing this for so long!! Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication. I look forward to more videos…

  • Cathii D’anthonii

    Brother King, your teaching form has been exceptional and we often use it in our morning Bible study over coffee…Thank you, and we look forward to your next presentation, whatever form it takes ..

  • The Raven

    I think you’ve wrung out their commentaries for every last drop. I agree there isn’t much point in it since they’re on autoplay.

  • with no back seat that looks dangerous. who recommended this article?

    Hello Robert.
    Why not just change daily comment section, to Sporadic Comments, or Token Moments even Gem of Day or even put your daily comments on random autoplay as reminders 🙂 ., In any case I’ve enjoyed the comments section it’s been like a nice set of tools in my toolbox to pull out when needed , I’ve used them in many of my conversations with other Witnesses they’ve really been helpful sort of like a tract if you will.. So thank you very much for all your hard work truely appreciated I have a very high regard for your writing and a great respect for what you’re doing… 🙂

    • “Why not just change daily comment section, to Sporadic Comments, or Token Moments…”

      How about “periodic outbursts”? lol

      Thank you all for your comments.

  • Craig Knight

    Keeping up with all the comments on this forum has to be exhausting for you. I will miss the daily contact here but you’re video’s and podcats will be something to look forward to. Thanks so much for your bright light that has exposed the benighted errors of the WT. Most of all thank you for helping me reconnect with God again. What better thing can a person do than that.

  • Mrs Jean Good

    I give thanks to Jehovah for you Robert King and for guiding me to you.

  • Island Breeze

    It would be nice to see some new videos, and hear some new podcasts !

    • The voice

      I would concur
      The podcasts and videos are more in depth
      Thanks for all your hard work Robert we certainly appreciate it

      • The voice

        Possibly a rebuttal to the new watchtower Zechariah explanation of chapter 5

  • Sirc

    I agree with you,
    as you said the problem are the WT who decide of the subject ,
    not necessarly in the best interest of JW,
    in contrast when you write an article most of the time we find real food for thought
    thank for your work

  • Dz5007

    I thank Jehovah for your insight and thank you for your dedication. Looking forward to the podcasts again as I love walking and learning while amongst his beautiful creation. Personally I don’t like the Watchtower and Awake podcasts as the people on them sound like robots or something computerised is reading them. Your way of writing and speaking is intriguing and makes me want to learn more. Keep up the good work in whatever you choose to do. Thank you!

  • Searcher

    Good move, leave the milk for the society to dish out, you have to admit they are at least good at that. Looking forward to sitting down for a good feed of meat at the ewatchman restaurant.

  • Island Breeze
  • Prodigal One

    I wholeheartedly understand your decision to focus on the weightier matters, kind Brother. Earnestly anticipating your scriptural guidance for those of us that are seeking direction towards our next steps, regarding what is expected of the majority of us as the servants of the household in testing times of the coming days.

  • David

    Thank goodness! New Videos on new subject matter! Who could have thought that? Lol

    • Noe Namely

      Hey David…mind sharing the name of the video please? I would love to see it and share it with a couple of my JW family who are not apt to report me for speaking the Truth about the Truth. I’d like to show them how they are rendering service to & worshiping to these Men of .org.
      Thanks, mike

  • Jamie Mac

    Hi Robert, really truly appreciate your dedication to writing all those commentaries, I didn’t realise you had penned 366 of them. For someone like me, you have rekindled my love for Jehovah, I was kinda dead and buried until I stumbled ( not sure if stumbled is the correct word ) across your site. Thanks to your hard hard and dedication I , and others, have a chance of becoming citizens of the much prayed for Kingdom.

    When watching your videos I feel all warm and cosy and it feels like Jehovah , through you, is talking to us and warning us about future events that are about to unfold. So I am really looking forward to any new videos.

    Thank you 🙂

  • JTK

    yes the WT whitewashed wall just keeps getting another coat while the bricks and mortar deterioate and are going to collapse and then and only then will the sheep see the reality, or will they?
    Thank you Robert for your continued dedication to the task set before you by Jehovah

  • Jim

    I never did understand, how you were able to keep up with it in the first place.

  • Max

    Wow I hope you are not thinking of retirement! You do a very good job brother King.
    Your work has been a blessing for me and many more. It must be a daunting task to have such a commission from Jehovah I cannot imagine but I know it’s way beyond my abilities. What I can say is that I will miss the daily text commentary but I understand your point. Thank you for all your hard work. May our Heavenly Father Jehovah bless you always!

    • Thanks Max. No, I am not retiring.

      • into the light

        Been thinking… Wasn’t even Jehovah himself prompted to respond to Jews’ conduct continually? It was basically determined by Jews what Jehovah would say to them through the prophets. And it was pretty much always along the same lines because they were stiff-necked people and kept doing what is bad.

        • Your imagination? Are you kidding? My God! The man of lawlessness is really getting bold. That is not even a subliminal. That is an in your face masonic salute to Satan. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

          I checked out the video on JW Broadcast and up above the masonic compass and square there is a mantle, a shelf, with various objects. Check out the thing on the left. A sun/eye thingy.

          Shouldn’t be too much longer now. Come, Lord Jesus!

          • Bklyn Kevin

            Perhaps thats why Jehovah will allow the Watchtower and its army to be given over together with the constant feature because of their lawless transgressions against the Holy Covenant due to the fact that they are obviously in support of the Illuminati which belongs to Satan’s satanic kingdom Daniel 8:12.

            “And those who act wickedly against the covenant, he will lead into apostasy by means of smooth words. But the people who know their God will prevail and act effectively. And those having insight among the people will impart understanding to the many. And they will be made to stumble by sword and by flame, by captivity and by plundering, for some days. But when they are made to stumble, they will be given a little help; and many will join with them by means of smooth speech. And some of those having insight will be made to stumble, in order to do a refining work because of them and to do a cleansing and a whitening until the time of the end; because it is yet for the time appointed Daniel 11: 32-35.

            • No doubt. No doubt.

            • Isaac of Coimbatore

              How foolish it was when the WTS in their Pay attention to Daniel’s prophecy book said those leaving the holy covenant and those who act wickedly against the covenant, represents Christendom. In fact these guys themselves are doing by their sublime images and now directly. Brother I liked your comment.

            • Bklyn Kevin

              That’s an intricate part of they’r sly lie that the Watchtower have just about everyone believing that it’s christendom in Prophecy rather than themselves
              surely they have made a covenant with death as the Bible says.
              So hear the word of Jehovah, you boasters,
              You rulers of this people in Jerusalem,
              For you men say:
              “We have made a covenant with Death,
              And with the Grave we have made an agreement.
              When the raging flash flood passes through,
              It will not reach us,
              For we have made a lie our refuge
              And we have hidden ourselves in falsehood.
              A covenant with Death” (14-22) Isaiah 28:Read more> https://www.jw.org/en/publications/bible/nwt/books/isaiah/28/#v23028014-v23028022

            • Isaac of Coimbatore

              Oh Oh you are breaking my head and putting things directly into by brains yes yes that is exactly right exactly right. Well I will discuss this matter (After the Watchtower) in my family study on Tuesday the 27th Dec 2017. Thanks Bklyn Kevin and Brother Robert King.

            • The Raven

              That, IMO is one of the biggest impediments to the truth; the false application of scripture concerning judgement to Christendom and not to themselves. But that also served to lock them into a corner hasn’t it? What can they say when it all comes down to them…first? Chirping like a spirit medium alright.

            • The Raven

              If everyone who had first hand experience spoke about this crooked deal they imposed on congregations concerning mortgages and interest, they would have gone under long ago. They’re concentrating on preserving their core at the expense of their “arms and legs”. At this point I’m wondering how much field work will actually be going on when it all blows apart. It appears to me they are hemorrhaging quite a bit.

          • Anonymous-DR

            Woa! I have not noted the litle “horus eye” this is incredible!!

          • Noe Namely

            Would you mind sharing the name of this video? If you mentioned it already, I have surly missed it.. Thanks!

            BTW, I really enjoy the videos you make & posted on eWatchman most recently the last two…. I will sorely miss your work as you are pulling back for a well deserved rest/regrouping….Best

            OMG!!! Have we actually become slaves of Pharaoh, making us build his bricks? 😱

            What a scheme! Build and sell, build and sell, all the while using a vast army of compliant and free labor!

            Well seems Rutherford did try to warn us that religion was a snare and a racket, didn’t he? 🤔

            • Yeah, but at least JW’s don’t have to supply their own straw. lol

            • The Raven

              Less for the fire to consume. This just keeps getting weirder by the week.

            • Song of Hannah

              Yeah. Instead the straw is supplied by our “voluntary donations”.

              Micah 7:
              9. I will bear the indignation of Jehovah, because I have sinned against him, until he plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: he will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold his righteousness.
              13. Yet shall the land be desolate because of them that dwell therein, for the fruit of their doings.
              14. Feed thy people with thy rod, the flock of thy heritage, which dwell solitarily, in the forest in the midst of Carmel: let them feed in Bashan and Gilead, as in the days of old.
              15. As in the days of thy coming forth out of the land of Egypt will I show unto them marvellous things.
              16. The nations shall see and be ashamed of all their might; they shall lay their hand upon their mouth; their ears shall be deaf.

        • Island Breeze

          There is definitely, DEFINITELY an” inside story” to all of this.

  • into the light

    Hopefully you can provide commentary on the upcoming study of the “Come Be My Follower” book.

  • Anderiega

    Thank you brother Robert for your tireless work. You have been a great help to me personally…..a crag and a shelter. May Jehovah and Jesus continue to bless you in your efforts and protect you as the days march on.

    HAVE YOU READ DEC 24TH SUNDAY’S WT STUDY ARTICLE?
    DO YOU BELIEVE THAT TWO COPPER MOUNTAINS REPRESENT ONE FOR JEHOVAH AND ANOTHER FOR JESUS? IT IS WRONG. ANYONE WANT TO KNOW THE REAL MEANING OF THAT CAN CONTACT me at easajw@gmail.com. ARTICLE COMPLETED.

  • muldoon55 .

    Thanx brother King for this feature you’ve brought to us.
    I wanted to share a link to an article written by an active witness brother who presents an authoritative lay out of the falsity of the 1914 date

  • Isaac of Coimbatore

    By the by yesterday for us it was Wednesday meeting. Everybody was telling about protecting of the Booth of David but I said rather than salvation first cleaning then salvation thus I commented on Zech:13:8-9. and applied to the Christian congregation. Everybody just kept quite not knowing what to reply. Next week I am going to comment on Malachi:3:2.
