How aptly that applies to the leadership of Jehovah’s Witnesses. They claim to be prophets and to speak in the name of Jehovah, but what have they “seen”?
On the one hand they claim to have seen all the events that Jesus foretold would occur during the conclusion. Simultaneously, though, they contradictorily also admit that we have not seen all the things that Jesus foretold. In that sense they fit the description of the stupid prophets who have waited in vain for the false vision they have promulgated to become a reality, as Ezekiel goes on to write: “They have seen false visions and foretold a lie, those who are saying, ‘The word of Jehovah is,’ when Jehovah himself has not sent them, and they have waited for their word to come true.”
Jehovah’s stake in the matter is that the stupid prophets have misled his people. God likens them to men who plaster whitewash on a flimsy partition wall, imagining that they are secure in their delusion. Again, here is what Jehovah has said: “All of this is because they have led my people astray by saying, ‘There is peace!’ when there is no peace. When a flimsy partition wall is built, they are plastering it with whitewash.’”
Jehovah commanded his watchman to tell the stupid prophets that their wall will fall in a thunderous downpour of Jehovah’s denunciation. Following the pattern found in Ezekiel I have also notified the Watchtower on numerous occasions that their whitewashed wall is doomed to collapse in the immediate future.
Although the Watchtower has assured Jehovah’s Witnesses that there cannot be a Third World War obviously Bethel has no control over reality. At this very moment the nations are feverishly preparing for a global conflict that will make the two previous to the world wars pale into insignificance by comparison. More significantly, the other aspects of the sign of the apocalypse are sure to present themselves in equal proportion —signifying that the authentic presence of Jesus Christ has begun.
The Wall Must Fall
Woe to the Stupid Prophets
