In the Day of His Inspection

//In the Day of His Inspection

Friday, September 23

Maintain your conduct fine among the nations, so that . . . they may be eyewitnesses of your fine works and, as a result, glorify God.1 Pet. 2:12.

We need to cultivate spiritual qualities that will help us to pass through “the great tribulation” into God’s righteous new world. Are we able to get along with people, including those whom we consider to be temperamental or overly sensitive? We do well to heed the words of the apostle Peter, who urged fellow believers: “Honor men of all sorts, have love for the whole association of brothers.”  Whether we are at home, at work, at school, at play, or in the ministry, we make every effort to bring glory to Jehovah through our fine conduct. True, as imperfect humans, we all make mistakes. But by continuing to “fight the fine fight of the faith,” we can successfully win the battle against our imperfect flesh.

COMMENTARY

It is understood that the point of the daily text is brevity; but sometimes important details may be overlooked or glossed over. That happens to be the case in this instance. The full verse indicates that there is a “day of his inspection” —a day of judgment; not in reference to unbelievers, but believers. In context the verse reads: “Maintain your conduct fine among the nations, so that when they accuse you of being wrongdoers, they may be eyewitnesses of your fine works and, as a result, glorify God in the day of his inspection.”

Naturally we may wonder, when is the day of his inspection? The October 15, 2010, Watchtower answers: 

Christ was enthroned as King of Jehovah’s Messianic Kingdom in 1914… Christ’s first kingly action after his enthronement was his victory over “the dragon and its angels.” … Then, in his role as Jehovah’s “messenger of the covenant,” Jesus came with his Father to carry out an inspection of the spiritual temple. He judged Christendom, the most reprehensible part of “Babylon the Great,” finding her guilty of bloodshed and of spiritual adultery with the political system of this world.

If Christ carried out the inspection back in the 1914-1918 period, then what is the purpose of our maintaining fine conduct among the nations now if the day of his inspection has already occurred? Obviously, the final inspection is the end of the matter —the conclusion —not the start of another generations-long period.

This is just one more instance of all the Watchtower perpetuates the grand delusion.

In the same epistle the apostle Peter wrote more concerning the day of his inspection, saying: “For it is the appointed time for the judgment to start with the house of God. Now if it starts first with us, what will the outcome be for those who are not obedient to the good news of God?”

Of course, the Watchtower teaches that the judgment of the house of God also took place back during the First World War. But, again, if that is true, what dreadful outcome has befallen those who have not been obedient to the good news? Obviously, nothing.

Ironically, the Watchtower’s 1914 delusion has made one thing an absolute certainty: Christ’s coming to initiate the inspection will be at a time his disciples think unlikely.

“But know this, if the householder had known at what hour the thief would come, he would not have let his house be broken into. You also, keep ready, because at an hour that you do not think likely, the Son of man is coming.”e-watchman-blackwhite_80b6bde1592458a30d9c1d1490748db5-500x503

    Interesting, as the watchtower settles into its new luxurious facility at “1st Kings Drive”….A suprise inspection is the last thing that they expect!

    • ewatchman

      Indeed. I have just been informed by an insider that the Governing Body have gotten the pick of the best lake-view apartments and offices at Warwick. Maybe Jesus will give them a few weeks to get settled in before his surprise visit. Who knows?

      • Jesus is coming as a thief in the night, when they least expect it. A Picnic around the lake counting their one billion dollars sounds like the perfect time to me!

        • Burt Reynolds

          Jehoavah will bung up the drain in their lake first….

      • Apple Pi

        How will this move affect ‘The City of Tearing Down’ prophecy? In this article, https://e-watchman.com/kingdom-bulletin-8/ , you previously stated, “Because of my unique understanding of
        this fascinating prophecy I can say with the certainty of a prophet that
        the Watchtower’s intended move will not occur – that the “altar” and
        “pillar” by the border of Egypt represents the present Brooklyn Bethel.
        The reason the project is doomed is because “Jehovah is riding on a swift cloud and is coming into Egypt” – soon!”

        • Joe Dman

          Hey Pi, I noticed you got no replies concerning this question. It’s kind of a drag when your expectations are up, unless you’re like my wife and just don’t want to see the end of this system in her lifetime. I’m just the opposite, not because I long for the day of Jehovah, but because the sooner it starts, the sooner it’s over. But we still have a couple of months or so before they are officially moved.
          Prophecy is always clearer from the perspective of hindsight, and it may be one of those things that are sealed up until a specific time. But if it doesn’t happen the way we expected it to, we have all of these other “revelations” that the majority of Christians don’t have that are clear evidence that we are living in a unique time in history. I have no doubt we are living in the time of a systems end, but if you take away biblical prophecy and just consider what’s going on in the world, we are about to experience a global change like never before. There is no memory of nor history being taught about the struggles the founders of the U.S. went through, so this Nation State system that has pushed for western values is falling victim to power hungry people who think of everyone else as servants whose lives are worthless. Money is power and the powers that be don’t care what country owes how much to who. They just know the way to regain the power they are losing is to collapse all powers first.
          If you could write what’s happening down, then somehow combine all biblical prophecy and write them down on a transparent film, you could overlay them and see how they almost seamlessly tell the same story. Obviously you can’t actually do it verbatim, but hopefully you know what I mean. And 1914 doesn’t fit.
          So, there’s a non answer to your question. And living for a date is something that has been a stumbling block for me and Satan knows it’s one for most of us. That’s why he chose a date to be a major part of the deluding influence. So looks like patience is something else that should be at the top of the list to pray for.
          I’m not suggesting you are having major issues with Robert suggesting they won’t get moved, I’m just taking this opportunity to speak my mind about it. And I welcome any adjustments to my thinking here.

    • Burt Reynolds

      If it is really true that the governing body have selected the best accommodation for themselves, then I am just aghast at their selfish arrogance and ignorance in the face of the days text. In keeping with the daily text above, you would expect the governing body to chose the lowliest accommodating and give the best to the more elderly or the longest serving, but never to themselves. They would take the lowest ‘seat’ so that when the bridegroom comes, they could be elevated to the higher place. They would give the best apartment views to the weakest so that they could look out and admire the creation of Jehovah and grow spiritually. In fact, they could get a small shed and put it in a glade in the trees there as a place of contemplation and live there with a bed and table, a kettle and a dog and wash in the lake. They could apologise for their lies and harm to the children. But no. There is more chance of Satan apologising to Jehovah than there is for these people to humbly turn around.

      • RLALLEN

        Like Paul who said “We could be an expensive burden to you as Apostles of Christ”….But ofcourse the Apostles humbly worked along side and cast off riches….What a stark contrast to those who have “began ruling as kings without them”….

        • Bklyn Kevin

          2 Thessalonians 3:
          nor did we eat anyone’s food free. On the contrary, by labor and toil we were working night and day so as not to impose an expensive burden on any one of you.
          9 Not that we do not have authority, but we wanted to offer ourselves as an example for you to imitate.
          10 In fact, when we were with you, we used to give you this order: “If anyone does not want to work, neither let him eat.

          • RLALLEN

            An example for all Christians to follow! Thanks for sharing that BK!

      • noname

        Yes. It is true. I worked in Warwick myself. All the rooms have more or less the same layout and size. However, during construction, one of the GB members went up to the top floor facing the lake, and told the workers to make the one unit apartments, into a double unit, basically they get a suite that is made up of 2 apartments instead of the standard size. The brother who told me was very excited about it, so I didn’t question its authenticity. For me it was very disturbing news. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0fa193888ec6408b0e24f9031301f9faec74866bd602bc4d09cf372524f55357.jpg

  • but recently the GB had a epileptic flash of light making yet another adjusted understanding that the inspection hasnt taken place yet whereas the Master appoints who really is faithful over all his belongings, yet at the same time declaring another adjustment that only the small Governing Body group alone are the F&DS and any other anointed are domestics

    • Burt Reynolds

      Have they said that the inspection has not taken place yet? Do you know when and where. It’s a useful reference if they have. Thanks.

      • Tamar

        Watchtower 7/15 2013 p11 par6
        “So a crucial question needed to be answered: Who among those groups were the wheat?To settle that question, Jesus began to inspect the spiritual temple in 1914. That inspection and cleansing work involved a period of time—from 1914 to the early part of 1919.* Footnote: This is an adjustment in understanding. Previously, we thought that Jesus’ inspection took place in 1918.”

        • Burt Reynolds

          Oh. It’s not better, it’s worse than it was before! For a moment I thought there had been a change of heart but instead they have extended it backwards by four years…..sigh…..thanks for the info.

          • Thinking

            Burt they have fairly recently…said they realize now that they are yet to be inspected…this is a new thought…
            They said that this inspection Is in the future they have acknowledged as of yet ..it has not happened yet…

            • sally

              Well my Bible study sister does not realise this neither does her elder husband…

            • Burt Reynolds

              How is your bible study going Sally? Are you getting support? Anything we can offer help with?

            • sally

              Hi Burt, I am still having my study, I won’t lie,it is very hard on so many levels and I do struggle with it, but I have decided to just tow the line so to speak, nod, say I understand and get through it. It is not rocket science stuff after all, (second book is about godly conduct etc) so I can’t say I am getting anything out of it spiritually but I did question some use of scriptures relating to the GB and respecting their authority and accepting that they are the mouthpiece for Jehovah and it just fell on deaf ears to be honest, or rather I think it just created suspicion around myself. So I think that at this point in time I should just not challenge things I do not agree with or understand. I am also thinking of the scripture that sister thinking posted about keeping silent for now. I do feel from some things that were said at my study this past week, that there is a definite push for me to prepare for baptism, as my study sister made reference to this and said we needed to talk about my progress soon. I am not ready for this step as I am not ready for all the things I have to do to get baptised, I am devoted to Jehovah I know that much, nothing is taking me away from him and learning the whole truth come what may but my “new light” here has changed my couse somewhat and I feel I have enough to deal with, right now learning what I am learning and managing the study and meetings.

            • Thinking

              It’s true as Sally ..he must have missed the WT that week,
              I remember it vividly ..as it was such a huge new understanding…that I thought would bring further understandings..but it doesn’t seem to have….well not yet anyway.
              They also said they also know they have been already counted as worthy..even tho they are yet to be judged .
              My son and I had a discussion on this after the meeting
              He does not know anything of what we know…I said to him…they cannot say they are counted worthy..as it is presumptuous on their part..as they are taking away Jesus and Jehovahs right to judge them…
              I don’t know what’s going on but sometimes these sorts of things are said and nobody seems to take much notice..it baffles me!!!
              They also had new understanding on the dragnet….where the Angels pull up a huge dragnet of fishes and then toss some out..they used to think that was Christendom believers being tossed out.
              They now acknowledge that its amongst gods own people ..and not anything to do with Other churches…..
              They actually said there is a culling going on amongst his people.
              I thought that would lead to a clearer understanding of the wheat and the weeds.
              Yet that has not happened .

            • Joyce Haze

              Dear Thinking, I begin thinking I do understand so much since coming to Roberts site, then total confusion sets in. At 2 Th 2:3-12, it seems to me it is taking place now! It seems that the man of lawlessness is being revealed. All the signs, the blatant arrogance of members of the governing body really discrediting both JEHOVAH and JESUS, in their self assuming they have already been counted as worthy on their own merit, sounding as though they have taken that judging upon themselves. The grand accommodations they have taken the liberty to provide for themselves, very self serving, lacking all humility. I know very little what takes place at the meetings these days, it’s been several years for me. It’s difficult to understand, we understand whom the prophesies are directed and yet those so close to what’s actually taking place do not. I understand the operation of error & in the beginning, they may get to believing the lie but it is now so obvious! Why are so few not coming away from it? Or will it be JESUS actual presence before they realize, or not? It seems to me it can’t be far off, as things are accelerating so quickly. Realizing to, that no one knows the day or the hour but very concerning, not seeing an end in sight. The world it seems is ready for serious meltdown!

            • Thinking

              Hello Joyce.
              Yes it seems all is being revealed…but only those truly keeping on the watch will probably see this.
              Many of Gods house did not even recognize his own son walking amongst them
              So why should this revealing be any different.
              It really isn’t that obvious to the bulk of his people…as they have built a incredible trust into the GB.
              Even the apostles did not recognize Judas as the betrayer until he actually betrayed Jesus…I certainly would not have suspected him..I would have felt warm and safe in his company…I would have totally trusted him…because HE WALKED with Jesus..he lived with him and no doubt did many good deeds..probably had some great qualities too.
              I would never have suspected he was pilfering from the money box…nor did any of the eleven apostles. We both probably would have really liked him..even grown to love him..
              We would have LISTEND to him when he instructed us….I doubt we would not have SEEN or FELT any reason to doubt the man.
              Things are no different today…exactly the same….biblical history just keeps on repeating itself.
              The thing we have to remember it is still Gods house until he sees fit to bring it down..or discipline it…
              Jesus WEPT when he looked upon Jeruselum….he was in anguish at the coming destruction upon it for he loved his house like a mother hen.
              The discipline of God house IS NOT something that we should rejoice about ….
              I personally do not speak like this about his people …because no matter how bad they are or have been in the past …they are STILL his people.
              Satan eagerly points out any negativity in the org or society…this he will find in abundance…..and he uses this to bring down many or encourage ones to leave his house.
              I see ones here doing exactly that…always negative…pointing to all the faults that even any imbecile can see for themselves.
              They go on and on and on..and underneath their posts ..is hidden encouragement to say it is okay to leave…or sowing seeds of dissension.
              Jehovah HATES this..
              This is a trap Satan sets….don’t fall for it Joyce …..not all who know these things act and speak wisely .
              TRUE brothers and sisters..build up..they do not undermine others faith…with the wrongs and negativity…..for they know that Jesus and Jehovah will bring this all to an end very soon.
              It takes a strong brother or sister to remain with in his house …..quietly encouraging ones to have faith in Jehovah God….indeed just remaining shows immense faith in Jehovah..knowing he will rescue us.
              This trying to wake ones up..or leave of from meetings because of what we see….and hate….is so wrong ….and yes I too spoke recklessly once .
              Fortunately I learnt my lesson..tho the hard way…
              Joyce Jehovah sees what they are doing…..do you think he is unaware of their way of living…off course not..
              Is his hand cut short…off course not…he still wishes to use these ones….he is ALLOWING them to come all the way in their sin….we can show our humbleness and stay faithfull.
              we are being taught to show ENDURANCE…..yes it’s hard and frustrating….but it is Jehovahs way….it is his timetable….and we must respect it even tho we don’t fully understand it.
              Stay strong Joyce..and never be swayed away from his house…..for HE WILL..rescue us.
              Yet only those that endured to the end…you are enduring…in evil times…
              Just be there for’ones who will soon be very confused and hurt…I think this is happening even now…
              Keep strong sis
              Xx

            • Joyce Haze

              Dear sister Thinking. I thank you for your reply, as I am beginning to see and understand many scriptures now, that in the past I had no clue. Issues of apostasy and this man of lawlessness I always understood to being Christendom/false religion. I as well looked to the organization as nearly infallible. I suppose many on this site had become disillusioned in our discovery of much negative happenings within the organization itself. I should say total shock and disbelief! Let me clarify though, in no way am I encouraging anyone from leaving the physical organization, but stated coming away meaning leaving behind the teachings by the society that we realize are wrong! I realize we are all striving in our own way to build a relationship with our Heavenly Father, whether we are attending meetings or not. By far, those who have become aware of the misdeeds occurring within the society and remain to take in knowledge and fellowship are extremely pleasing to Jehovah and Jesus as the scripture instruct us to do. Of course JEHOVAH wishes His people to gather together, so that we may praise, honor and serve him. Hebrews 10:25. And we may at times take it upon ourselves to assume JEHOVAHS timing, that of course leads me, to humble myself in the fact I have NO right in any way to question what belongs to him alone!!! And yes, I do agree wholeheartedly this is His arrangement of things, praying that he will help to guide me back!! Again you have been very loving and helpful to see the harm in the way we may be a discouraging influence on others in our words!

    • Joyce Haze

      This kind of confusion within the organization is what has most likely lulled the majority into a coma like state! Not funny but………….

      • THE DRIFTER

        I was thinking the same.

        I even liken it to Obama’s first couple of years where he had so much in play that Republicans couldn’t focus on any one event.

        There’s a military term for that tactic but it doesn’t come to mind.

  • Yuri Fisher

    How ironic is to read this daily text
    knowing the about many child abuse cases that now expose the real situation inside the WT organization. We all can see the terrible consequences of those cases. How many people are suffering. They look at the leaders of WT and hate Jehovah. What a reproch on Jehovah’s name. Every time I read about child abuse I get angry of people who doing it and of peope who hides and approves those things. They are very big criminals. They will not escape their judgement. I hope soon we will see real comming of Jesus.

  • Burt Reynolds

    IT is interesting that they speak of honouring and loving the brothers, and even those we find irritating or ‘sensitive’ whatever that refers to. As you noted in one of your talks I listened to today on your tube, you said ‘how can they love Jehovah and Jesus if they do not know them’, and that as the bible says, Jesus and Jehovah will tell them to ‘get away from (me) for I never knew you.’ So it is too that the brothers cannot be truely loving of their fellows, or the elders of their flock, or the governing body of their charges, as they have not experienced the love, in loving Jehovah….they do not know him so how can they imitate these spiritual values with any ‘honourable’ intention? And few can say…in fact I have never heard it….that the congregations exude true love. Quite the opposite really….look at even our new sisters studying the bible being harassed by the congregation to hurry up and commit. And so it is that the signature of love, humility, is absent in the congregations.

    • Man from the lions pit

      This absolutely off topic dear Bro.Because the big boos close or lock the previous topic and I haven’t chance to reply I do it here.Yes its personal.Thanks for ridiculing me at previous topic.Sure it wasn’t ridicule it was just classy sarcasm or sense of humor or it part of business call to be a Christian ? agape from my side

      • Burt Reynolds

        You condemn yourself brother by responding to ridicule above humbling yourself to what is clearly truth from the bible. I did not lie to you did I? Had it clearly been a lie, you would have said so, but you know deep inside that what the article said was the truth. I illustrated to you the facts but in a different way because you did not listen to truth. It is ridicule, but the motive is concern. I urge you to ‘seek truth whilst it may yet be found.’ Stop straining at the knat and swallowing the camel. It is not me you owe agape to, but Jehovah.

        • Man from the lions pit

          No I did and do not agree with the article.Therefore I was presenting other view.What was shocking to me was not the disagreement on the topic but lack of grace and respect for opposite view from Robert ,you and others. Bible suggest nowhere that earth is globe (Isa 40:22 included )also because br.Robert believe it doesn’t make globe.Because br.Robert call me a moron so this gave you and couple others license to ridicule me? Your explanation is lame you excusing it with concern.Jesus left us a model we strife to follow.So show me instance when he ridiculed someone? Speech season with salt etc.I do seek truth whole my life and because you don’t know nothing about me ,my education,credentials,background etc.Your and other ridicule and name calling may be on slippery slope.Anyhow I’m sorry that we have this exchange under unrelated topic but Br.Robert take away this from me or us.Agape we do also own to each other and this or other type of love like philia should make us not ridicule others especially brothers in faith.

              Oh no! I’ve become a cubist!

          • Ed don’t get caught up in The demons lie of a flat earth, you’ll chase a uncatchable rabbit down a deep rabbit hole. His lies are many and manifold and are woven into the very fabric of society; so pervasive, so insidious, the apostle described the demonic influence over the world as “the ruler of the authority of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience.” In other words, Satan’s spirit motivates the whole of Society from top to bottom. He wants you to believe in nonsense & waste your valuable time researching.

            • Man from the lions pit

              Thanks bro.Now the question is what is Satanic and demonic lie ? Globe or flat or ? What you will do if the globe was perverted concept and mother or all lies ? For Christians the answer should the the Bible.

    • THE DRIFTER

      I agree with Man from the lions pit in that scripture doesn’t support a spherical / global earth.

      Scientists do.

      Unless I’m mistaken only the Moffat translation uses sphere instead of circle within Isaiah’s text, no?

      • ewatchman

        From our vantage point the sun and moon are circles, but even the flat earth morons don’t claim the sun and moon are flat. Or maybe they do. Maybe I have underestimated their stupidity. But I am not kidding. I have reached the point where I just can’t take any more idiocy. I had hoped to attract people of intelligence among JW’s, to discuss spiritual topics. I’ll shut the comments down if I have to put up with any more flat earth imbeciles.

        • THE DRIFTER

          Not trying to be adversarial here but, …I think you opened the door with your earlier topic, “Is the earth flat or round?”

          On a personal note, I’ve lost several debates trying to defend the claim that the Bible supported a global / spherical earth before I had to honestly concede that it didn’t.

          Chalk it up to examining the scriptures!

          Maybe you have something to add that I have missed?

          Whether or not you decide to continue entertaining any more thoughts on the subject is your choice, ( it’s your site )

          As an aside, …with less than a handful of questionable citations on the subject, why on earth would anyone play, “the Bible is scientifically accurate” card?

        • Leonard k

          this is a post I wrote on my facebook page about the flat earth silliness hope it can show all those interested parties the scientific facts of a round earth as are all other planetary bodies and stars.

          this flat earth notion is the silliest thing I have ever heard really I have to laugh at such a thing. I can disprove this flat earth notion right now its simple really just look at satellite photos or live images from the international space station and when you see the earth you can clearly see it is round circular. look at other photos and video recordings from probes sent out into the outer solar system look at the sun ROUND look at mars ROUND look at all the planets and stars in our solar system and you can clearly see with out a doubt that they are ROUND CIRCULAR. Jehovah God created the universe so SURELY he knows all about its his own creation and gods word states.
          Genesis 1:1
          1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
          Isaiah 40:22
          22 There is One who dwells above the circle of the earth,
          And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers.
          He is stretching out the heavens like a fine gauze,
          And he spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.
          haven’t we all gone out side at night and looked up through the dark of night and see a half round moon or a full round moon? of course we all have so how can any one entertain this silly notion of a flat earth? i am no scientist but here is more disproof of the flat earth theory. think about earths oceans for example high tides and low tides and how and why they happen. the physics of this example alone will conclude circular and elliptical orbits and how they affect the earths ocean tides.
          Tides are the rise and fall of sea levels caused by the combined effects of the gravitational …. The lunar day is longer than the Earth day because the Moon orbits in the …. plane of the lunar orbit and the elliptical shape of the Earth’s orbit of the sun. … For an ocean in the shape of a circular basin enclosed by a coastline
          Their speed is controlled by gravity and they have a wavelength of more than .7 of an inch. …. keeping a body in a circular motion, the centripetal force keeps the masses … How do the elliptical orbits affect tides? … a model or “no tide” point in the ocean or sea around which the crest of the tide rotates during one tidal period.
          besides photos and videos taken from the international space station we have the understanding of geologic / ocean and orbital physics.
          here is another example of current geological world events such as earthquakes sinkholes and flooding/tsunamis that can now be plausibly explained. if you think about lakes and ponds suddenly draining into a small forming sink holes around the world you will agree the information contained in this video is the most plausible explanation. during solar activity the earth can have circular or elliptical orbits causing earths crust to squeeze and or loosen pull apart. I believe it is the circular / elliptical back and fourth orbit that causes the earths crust to pull apart that cause cavities and fissures in the earth crust and it is at this point that sinkholes start to form draining lakes and ponds into these newly opened / formed cavities and fissures in the earth crust and it is my belief that the water will eventually drain down into these underground oceans.
          Scientists say rock layer hundreds of miles down holds vast amount of water, opening up new theories on how … Earth may have underground ‘ocean’ three times that on surface Massive Underground Ocean Exists Beneath Earth’s Crust, Study Says https://youtu.be/NYy9m_lBL60 please give both videos a view you will find it very interesting. this information will not only explain the planets current geological state of increasing sinkholes earthquakes and flooding but it ALSO DISPROVE THE FLAT EARTH THEORY.

          To THE DRIFTER: Many languages do not have a separate word for “spherical”. I suspect this is the case for ancient Hebrew. In my mother tongue, for example, while we have a separate word for “ball”, it is never used when speaking about the earth. Instead, we use the word that is translated literally as “circle” or “circular”.

    • Leonard k

      Robert the funny thing is after light scrutiny, examination, of the subject its is very obvious that a flat earth is false how can any one even entertain the notion?

      Isaiah 40:22

      22 There is One who dwells above the circle of the earth,
      And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers.
      He is stretching out the heavens like a fine gauze,
      And he spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.

      • ewatchman

        The morons believe the circle is a frisbee shape, not a globe. That’s okay. I am winnowing them out. This is good, actually. Need to do this from time to time.

        • Leonard k

          I hear you brother Robert a little house cleaning is in order.

  • ewatchman

    Next. Come on with the next flat earth moron.

    • sally

      Well I heard it was a triangle.

  • ewatchman

    I will delete the whole lot of ya. Come on!

  • ewatchman

    Let’s go! Next moron up!

    • Leonard k

      brother Robert I feel the same way as you do and i despise the fact that some people will purposely try to incite you to aggravation don’t let them. here you are attempting to disprove a silly notion about the flat earth subject and rightfully so but the funny thing to me is here we are right now could be at any given moment facing nuclear war and all some people want to do is waste there time entertaining and trying to prove that a flat earth exists? i will say to those people would not your time be better spent on the more important things? We have the honor to be part of God’s universal organization. How can we show support for the work it is doing today.

      Philippians 1:10

      10 that you may make sure of the more important things, so that you may be flawless and not stumbling others up to the day of Christ;

      2 Peter 1:10

      10 Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to make your calling and choosing sure for yourselves, for if you keep on doing these things, you will by no means ever fail.

      to all those who will waste there time entertaining nonsense i can only say this. we are facing some of the most important prophetic prophecy ever foretold will your nonsensical idea’s matter when you witness the first bombs drop.

      • Bklyn Kevin

        Like you said Leonard there’s more important things to worry about.

        Four Flash Points That Could Trigger World War III: “We Have Not Been This Close To Nuclear War In A Long Time” . Read more.

        US missile defense shield goes live in Europe.

        On Thursday, the United States activated its missile defense system in Romania. The $800 million dollar system is the first of its kind in Europe, and aims to defend the US and Europe from, “rogue states,” namely, Iran.

        Russia, however, insists that the US aim is to neutralize Moscow’s nuclear arsenal long enough for the US to strike Russia. Read more.http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/218188

        • Leonard k

          we certainly do have more important things to worry about. this new US missile defense shield could very well be a trigger for nuclear war with the most horrifying consequences to every one. we know of the foretold prophecy’s to come we are seeing a current global state of affairs such as we have never seen before. it seems like each day has more and more of a nuclear threat upon the world but I do not think many are realizing what is really going on or are they just to frightened to admit the truth. now more then ever I think we need to get right with Jehovah and have our spiritual affairs in order. we are certainly facing a very dark time ahead and its mot like Jehovah has not warned us in fact all through biblical history Jehovah has always warned every one in advance. I realize that many are very frightened and can find the current global state of affairs very difficult to except but ww3 is the reality of things and there isn’t anything any one can do to change that reality so as specially now more then ever we need to keep on the watch and put our burdens on Jehovah’s shoulders now more then ever we need to grasp our faith and remember it is only Jehovah our heavenly father that can and will set matters straight. as you and I say a lot we are all going to die ether way so we might as try to die faithfully and as long as Jehovah and jesus are with is through it all then we need mot be frightened and put Jehovah first in all things.

          Joshua 1:9
          9 Have I not commanded you? Be courageous and strong. Do not be struck with terror or fear, for Jehovah your God is with you wherever you go.”

          • Joyce Haze

            Leonard, I too am trying with all my might to get my life, my thinking my very being right towards JEHOVAH, trust in all he speaks to us is our hope! But the unknown is very, very hard to come to terms with in our minds. I have others, I pray constantly to come to JEHOVAH before it’s to late. My grandchildren, I look at them each day and wonder. I hold full on conversation with Jehovah to please help me to help them. I cry a lot!!!

            • Bklyn Kevin

              Isaiah 41:10 Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness.’

              Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress.

              Romans 8:31 What, then, are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who will be against us.

            • Joyce Haze

              Dear Bklyn Kevin, thank you so much for sharing. Yes, at times we can become overwhelmed. All praise most assuredly goes to JEHOVAH, He is our only joy and strength in these dark times. And yes if we are worthy of our grand creators care we should’nt have anything to fear. I know he is listening, I know He’s aware of all we feel. Thank you again!!!

            • Leonard k

              I totally agree with you and it has been my own personal experience with Jehovah our god that got me through to this point. let me be a witness to you concerning Jehovah’s undeserved love mercy and kindness. he hears you he knows you he knows what you need even before you ask of him.

              Matthew 6:8

              8 So do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need even before you ask him.

              Jeremiah 17:10

              10 I, Jehovah, am searching the heart, Examining the innermost thoughts, To give to each one according to his ways, According to the fruitage of his works.

              i am worthy of NOTHING and yet Jehovah freely forgives. i am deserving of NOTHING and yet Jehovah freely gives. i know this to be true because Jehovah did it to me. he took me by the hand and helped me to take baby steps until i could walk on my own he then let go of my hand and taught me to walk by faith and so that is what i try my best to do every day. Jehovah taught me his word he built me up and because i witnessed him doing this to me my faith grew and i made changes in my life by repenting and continually taking in an accurate knowledge / spiritual food and i continually try to keep building my personal relationship with Jehovah but even on my worst days Jehovah never left me he stayed with me and he showed me love and mercy. i am telling you all of this because after i became a witness to what he has done for me i have a changed heart and mind. he gave me all the tools i needed to live by his word and do his will and i try to use them as much as i can. there is not a day that goes by that i don’t wake up and think of Jehovah our god and his will and his word. i wanted to share this with you because i know Jehovah loves you to and he is there for you and all he expects from you is that you really repent and try your best to live by his word and do his will. Jehovah understands how imperfect we all are he knows how difficult it is to live in this wicked system of things so all he expects is that we really try our best to be his people. keep on praying and asking for forgiveness keep on taking in spiritual food an accurate knowledge keep on building your personal relationship with Jehovah and you will overcome the stumbling blocks set before you in the world.

              James 4:8
              8 Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you indecisive ones.

              Deuteronomy 8:3

              3 So he humbled you and let you go hungry and fed you with the manna, which neither you had known nor your fathers had known, in order to make you know that man does not live by bread alone but man lives by every expression from Jehovah’s mouth.

            • Joyce Haze

              Dear Leonard, thank you so very, very much for sharing your journey, you can’t imagine my appreciation. I have had many struggles but feel day by day my yearning to learn all I can Jehovah’s ways. Repentance is so very important in opening the path of his forgiveness. Gaining knowledge of his purpose is the only way to build a close relationship. I’m trying desperately to push all distractions out of my life, to put HIM first in all my dealings with others. He shows such love and mercy, in which I’m aware is much undeserved! I’m determined to prove my love and appreciation for HIS mercy towards me personally. I am truly in awe that our Creator so willingly affords us the opportunity to come to know HIM, to serve and hopefully become acceptable in HIS eyes. There is nothing to compare to his blessings and promises to those who truly are his children in truth and love.
              Once again thank you. True faith is the beginning of all our joy in life!

            • Joyce Haze

              I hope one day I can help others, as so many on this site have helped me, in gaining the knowledge needed to give praise and our service to our Heavenly Father and His Son Christ Jesus!

      • sally

        Well said Leonard, that was exactly what I thought when I read the flat earth posts. Is it really a priority??? It seems to me that it is more of a distraction from focusing on the priorities.
        Oh and thank you for the very apt scriptures!

        • Leonard k

          the only priority we should all have is putting Jehovah and his word first. and yes you are correct the nonsense that is out there is nothing more then a distraction by satan the devil this is how he works. glad you liked the scriptures they are wonderful.

        • Leonard k

          Revelation 12:12

          12 On this account be glad, you heavens and you who reside in them! Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing that he has a short period of time.”

          Isaiah 29:6

          6 Jehovah of armies will give you his attention With thunder and earthquake and a great noise, With storm wind and tempest and the flames of a consuming fire.”

          Zechariah 7:14

          14 ‘And I scattered them with a storm wind throughout all the nations that they had not known, and the land was left desolate behind them, with no one passing through or returning; for they turned the desirable land into an object of horror.’”

          Psalm 19:9

          9 The fear of Jehovah is pure, lasting forever. The judgments of Jehovah are true, altogether righteous.

          Ezekiel 11:12

          12 and you will have to know that I am Jehovah. For you did not walk in my regulations and carry out my judgments, but you have acted in harmony with the judgments of the nations around you.’”

          36 “‘Just as I entered into judgment with your forefathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so I will enter into judgment with you,’ declares the Sovereign Lord Jehovah.

          13 “Keep on the watch, therefore, because you know neither the day nor the hour.

      Hello Robert, this is a conundrum. Certainly the bible does not allow ignorance to be an excuse and certainly, the brothers calling at the door complain that ‘they cannot get anywhere’ with the householder who senses salvation, but cannot see. After spending many years in social science, it was always a wonder to me that some, many, could not see a solution to their problems, to themselves…lacking qualities of introspection. And even my staff did not have on many occasions, the ability to confer with their clients in a spirit of what I called ‘professional empathy’ a detached yet heartfelt affiliation with the client, usually born of experience of similar situations. ‘They’ say one cannot write good poetry without having suffered, but then many suffer, but lack the ability to express such in a meaningful way. The watchman is a small lifeboat floating in a sea of corruption. People swim to it through what kind of dross and circumstance, we know not. Land is in sight, so near, one wonders whether to throw back into the corruption of the sea, those who cannot row the boat and how to devide between those that will not row the boat and how we may know the difference between the two…. and whether or not passport control on the distant land should have the last say. Maybe I was wrong to allow myself to be provoked and add to the conflict.

      • ewatchman

        I cannot help but be provoked in the face of sheer stupidity. It is my weakness. I really need to work on it, because it is only going to get worse. Flat earthers are part of the same phenomenon as Pokemon zombies, transgender freaks, porno addicts, cage fighters; in short, people are being stupified and made to want to revel in their being dumb beasts. The world is rushing into a new dark age

        • Burt Reynolds

          Hello Robert, yes I can sympathise with your feelings. I just felt compelled to comment as I woke up in the middle of the night thinking about it and for what seemed a long time. I have a problem with sarcasm as most on this site will be aware of by now and I suppose few of us can talk, though that is no excuse…..but my school teachers and mothers all had tongues as sharp as any two edged sword. Probably war damage. Don’t get downhearted though by those that revel in the obtuse or let it detract from the wonderful instruction that appears on this site and that will ultimately save and enlighten, and brings so much joy to the hearts of those that love Jehovah through coming to know him all the better. Your vocation is by no means wasted.

          • ewatchman

            The sarcasm is a British thing. You can’t help it mate. ;~)

        • Bklyn Kevin

          On the contrary I don’t believe for one second that your being provoked by Satan’s agenda of dumbing down the population is a sign of weakness, the very fact that you are provoked and hate what his bed shows that you “originate” with Jehovah.

          Psalms 97:10
          O you who love Jehovah, hate what is bad. He is guarding the lives of his loyal ones; He rescues them from the hand of the wicked.

        • 1914for100Alex

          I’d like to add to this and point out that there are a lot more people reading this site than just the handful of us that regularly post. I think Robert said 30-35k visitors per month. What must they be thinking when they read the comments and see us arguing and calling names? Especially if it’s someone new and this is the first thing they see? I have a thicker skin than most, so I probably would have continued reading. But there are so many others that are hurt and lost when they find this site that might fear speaking up, and that could potentially cost them dearly. As you guys may have guessed, this bothers me a lot. This is twice in the past couple weeks that things have gotten heated. I’m sure it’s not the first time or the last, but, if anything, for the sake of those new people that may happen to show up let’s please try to keep things more civil.

        • Burt Reynolds

          If finger pointing is all I get during the tribulation then point away.
