Jehovah Has Become King – really?

//Jehovah Has Become King – really?

Tuesday, December 12

Let them praise your great name.Ps. 99:3.

Unlike some religious people who mistakenly think that they will praise God once they have left the earth and gone to heaven, all of Jehovah’s Witnesses realize the need to praise him here and now on the earth. We thereby follow the example of the faithful servants of Jehovah described at Psalm 99:1-3, 5. As that psalm indicates, Moses, Aaron, and Samuel offered their full support to the arrangement for true worship in their day. Today, before moving on to serve as priests with Jesus in heaven, the remaining ones of his anointed brothers faithfully serve in the earthly courtyard of the spiritual temple. Millions of “other sheep” loyally support them. Although having different hopes, both groups unitedly worship Jehovah here at God’s footstool. As individuals, however, we do well to ask ourselves, ‘Am I giving full support to Jehovah’s arrangement for pure worship?’

The 99th Psalm begins with the announcement: “Jehovah has become King. Let the peoples tremble. He sits enthroned above the cherubs. Let the earth shake.”

This is no insignificant development. Jehovah becoming king finds its ultimate fulfillment when Jesus sits down upon his throne and begins ruling in the name of Jehovah. His enthronement above the cherubs is what is symbolized in Ezekiel’s vision of the fiery, celestial chariot.

Jehovah’s Witnesses believe this monumental event is history. Here is what the Watchtower has to say about Jehovah becoming king:

But the most important date for all human creation is 1914 (about October 1), for that marked the greatest turning point in all human history….That 1914 indeed marks the year Jehovah became King is conclusively proved by the voices in heaven that John in his apocalyptic vision heard: “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will rule as king for ever and ever.” “We thank you, Jehovah God, the Almighty, the one who is and who was, because you have taken your great power and begun ruling as king. But the nations became wrathful, and your own wrath came, and the appointed time . . . to bring to ruin those ruining the earth.” Without doubt, 1914 marks the time when the nations became wrathful as never before. (WT 5-15-1960)

It is amazing that even 57 years later Jehovah’s Witnesses still believe that Christ began ruling the world 103 years ago. It requires Jehovah’s Witnesses to believe that the nations became wrathful, but then their anger moderated. And indeed, it has. Although interrupted with periodic regional wars since WW2 the nations have enjoyed an extraordinary period of peace. Not only that, Jehovah’s Witnesses have flourished. Where is the anger and wrath? Where is the persecution?

What is more, the 11th chapter of Revelation states that in response to the wrath of the nations God brings to ruin those ruining the earth. Was the earth being ruined back in 1914? Of course not. Pollution and environmental issues have only come to the fore in recent decades. So, that means that Jesus has sat upon his throne —fully vested with all power and authority, and for these past 10 decades he has done absolutely nothing while the earth is being plundered and raped. What kind of kingship is that? Ought we praise Jehovah for having become king and yet allowing his enemies to go on and on in the same manner as before he became king? Why ought the earth tremble before a God who does nothing with his power after taking it from Satan?

I realize that my ranting about the 1914 fraud has no influence over anyone in the leadership of the Watchtower. Mine is just a tiny voice, easily ignored. That’s the reality. But I am supremely confident in the truth. I fully expect Jehovah to become king in the immediate future, which is to say I anticipate the Second Coming of Christ in the days ahead.

The stage is set. Conflict at this point is unavoidable. Or do you imagine that the Anglo empire that has ruled this world for over two hundred years is simply going to allow China to eclipse it? That will never happen. And they certainly are not going to allow any American president to make an alliance with Russia and China. The lords of London will blow the world up before they cede their power to anyone.

The bottom line, is, you have not seen the nations become wrathful. It is going to be terrifying. Hundreds of millions of people are going to die. Why do you think Jesus exhorted his followers not to be terrified? Are you shrinking in terror over the horror of World War One?

Unfortunately, this is what it is going to take to wake Jehovah’s Witnesses up. As for the leadership of the Watchtower, does it not say: “Only terror will make them understand”? Indeed, and terror it shall be when Jehovah becomes king. Let the people tremble! Let the earth shake!

  • idk where the energy comes from to shoot out these essays like rain. i have to catchup reading them sometimes and reading one takes longer then what it took to bake it sometimes

    • The Raven

      lol! You’re right. But that’s because you and some others here research these articles. I use the time in between to dig through the older ones but lately that’s been harder to do.
      How have you been? Hadn’t seen you around lately, hope everything is ok.

      • idk how to answer the question Raven, im alive

        • The Raven

          I feel like I can understand your reply maybe in part. Many of us feel like we’re just existing, doing time in this institution until it’s set right for a number of personal reasons. Knowing the truth helps but it’s still a struggle for many right here, right now . I wonder about you everytime I run across your comments. You are one of the sharpest people I have ever known. I wish I had your ability to cite relevant scripture in a wide range of subjects. I mean that. You’re in my prayers, man.

    • Mega doses of caffeine, that’s the secret. lol

      • Burt Reynolds

        Be careful of your heart if you really are doing that. Caffeine in high doses can trigger arrhythmia.

      • The voice

        It is quite amazing, most that I speak with about a 3rd world war say I am crazy and others think we are already in the Great tribulation

        • That’s crazy. I hadn’t realized it was THAT bad. I guess the lesson is, never underestimate the power of the deluding influence.

  • Cathii D’anthonii

    One of the books we lost in Irma was the Greek interlinear, it’s offered on ebay for 50.00, seriously???
    I used to ask Brother Anderson, how
    Could the unfaithful Jews represent christiamdom, that didn’t make sense…( Babylon the Great has fallen book)… The answer was, quit asking so many questions..(grin) looking forwRd to seeing them in the resurrection …

    • The Raven

      Lol! Good to see you Cathii! It’s going to be interesting to see what all those folks you’ve been associated with have to say.

      • Cathii D’anthonii

        They were special pioneers..everytime they went door to door in Alabama, they were arrested, spent the night in jail.. I think it was called a green river law..I loved those two..

        • The Raven

          Alabama? lol! I remember you telling me about that a while back. I can’t remember if it was the ACLU or the JWs that argued they weren’t selling anything and it was a violation of the first ammendment freedom of speech. I don’t recall what year it was.

          • Cathii D’anthonii

            That was in Camarillo, California.. rCamarillo tried to make the witnesses buy va license to go door to door…

        • Burt Reynolds

          You’re right. It’s an America law forbidding the selling of stuff from one for to another without the householders permission. ( usually applies to inner cities). It was common to all the United States. At least they got their overnight accommodation free. Sounds familiar…

      • Cathii D’anthonii

        Raven, I figured it out all by myself.. just scarry!!! Lol

        • The Raven

          That doesn’t surprise me. You’ve got a lot of experience and a love of truth. I knew right away for the most part what was incorrect but made very little progress trying to find answers until I found this place. It’s not scary. It shows you’ve been willing to let Jehovah’s spirit guide you.

          • Cathii D’anthonii

            Talking about figuring out disqus..ive probably driven Brother King crazy with my whining….
            Notice that they are discussing Zachariah, the horseman, remember we talked about who they were and what time period that was in peace…

    • Song of Hannah

      Hi Cathii! If it helps at all, the JW Library App offers the Greek Interlinear as one of the Bible downloads (along with the King James, Byington, and American Standard Versions). Really helps when studying!

    • sorry that happened

    • Isaac of Coimbatore

      Br. Anderson or Sanderson? You mean Mark Sanderson a GB member? See one thing why ask them? they are Isaiah:42:19. The governing body will be brought low and from the ground they will speak, and what they say will be muffled by dust and their voice will come from the ground like the voice of a spirit medium,and their words will chirp from the dust.The crowd of their enemies (exjws) will be like fine powder, The crowd of the tyrants(such as Russian orthodox Church) just like the blowing chaff. Isaiah:29:4-5.

  • Sharon

    i thouroly enjoyed your rant

  • Revv_zone@gmail.com Please8834

    I’m with you Robert, on the rant about 1914 …its so absurd that for over a hundred years of Kingdom rule that nothing significant has happened from the Throne of the Almighty..Its shoild nr obvious that it hasn’t happened yet, and these people actually believe this nonsense is just so painfully, unreal .. it’s not even ridiculous anymore it’s just absolutely stupid!

    • Island Breeze

      True
      Millions now dead……never really lived!

      Should be the title of the next convention.

      • Burt Reynolds

        So much truth in satire!

      • Revv_zone@gmail.com Please8834

        Lol hahaha

  • Isaac of Coimbatore

    Expecting Jehovah to become king in the immediate future? Which is to say the Second Coming of Christ in the days ahead. Well that may be true.

    But Jehovah to become king in the immediate future is not!!

    Why? Even during the peaceful 1000 year rule of Jesus Christ death upon mankind is not still removed. That means the earth is not fully cleansed. When Satan is freed after 1000 years rule of Jesus some will still be contaminated by Satan hence during his final rule still Jesus has the cleaning work to do with this earth. Only after that the earth is clean and Jesus hands over his kingdom back to his father (1st: Corinth: 15:28) that means it is as though having taken the whole creation especially the mankind and entered into the most holy. It will be as if a priest washing in the copper vessel and enter into the most holy in the presence of Jehovah.

    Even though resurrection happens in Jesus’ kingdom still death exists until the end of 1000 year rule. But you see Rev: 21:4: And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. See the timing when it happens? See Satan is eliminated in chapter 20 itself but death will be no more verse occurs in chapter 21 that is when Jehovah himself sits in the throne and becomes King not even when Jesus is King.
    So Jehovah becoming King in the immediate future is not It will be after incidents fulfilled as given in the 20th chapter of revelation?

    What about Jesus Second coming?
    Take Daniel 2nd Chapter
    Let’s ask ourselves which portion of the image does the stone strike (hits)? We already know that Iron and Clay represents Anglo-American dual world power. If the intention of the stone is to only strike the image and destroy then the stone would have hit any part of the image!!

    Have you ever thought why the stone did not strike the head or the breast and arms or the abdomen or the legs part, why specifically at feet and toes? Will Jehovah ever make his prophet to write which is meaningless?

    Certainly not!! That means the striking of the stone specifically on the feet and toes part of the image has immense meaning. It means it specifically indicates the timing when Christ kingdom establishes. Yes when feet and toes of Iron and Clay = Anglo American world power collapses that is the time the Kingdom of Christ will begin to establish. So the striking by the stone at Iron and Clay part (Anglo American world power) of the image indicates the timing when Christ’s Kingdom begins to establish on this earth. Yes we can specifically say that the collapse of the present Anglo-American world power is the indication that Christ being’s to rule on this earth. It is not that easy even if anyone including the illuminaties, Bankers, oligarchs or clique to make it collapse forcefully. Why? Because the timing when the great tribulation should start is in the hands of Jesus as he has not commanded the four angles who is holding the four winds as described in REV:7:1-3.

    • Cathii D’anthonii

      39 times in Ezekiel it says “The nations shall know, ,that I am Jehovah . ” In other words, the destruction at Armageddon will be so terrific the nation’s will not be guessing at who is bringing it about..The whole point is vindication of Jehovahs, name..Daniel 8th chapter shows Jehovah ending the 8th kings rule…Jesus and Jehovah work together.
      Isaac, your reasoning is awsome…Thank you for sharing your insight.

      A Revelation to John
      19:1-21
      19 After this I heard what seemed to be a loud voice of a great crowd in heaven. They said: “Praise Jah!*a The salvation and the glory and the power belong to our God,2 because his judgments are true and righteous.b For he has executed judgment on the great prostitute who corrupted the earth with her sexual immorality,* and he has avenged the blood of his slaves that is on her hands.”*c3 And right away for the second time they said: “Praise Jah!*d And the smoke from her goes on ascending forever and ever.”e
      4 And the 24 eldersf and the four living creaturesg fell down and worshipped God who sits on the throne and said: “Amen! Praise Jah!”*h
      5 Also, a voice came from the throne and said: “Be praising our God, all you his slaves,i who fear him, the small ones and the great.”j
      6 And I heard what sounded like a voice of a great crowd and like the sound of many waters and like the sound of heavy thunders. They said: “Praise Jah,*k because Jehovah* our God, the Almighty,l has begun to rule as king!m7 Let us rejoice and be overjoyed and give him glory, because the marriage of the Lamb has arrived and his wife has prepared herself.8 Yes, it has been granted to her to be clothed with bright, clean, fine linen—for the fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the holy ones.”n
      9 And he tells me, “Write: Happy are those invited to the evening meal of the Lamb’s marriage.”o Also, he tells me: “These are the true sayings of God.”10 At that I fell down before his feet to worship him. But he tells me: “Be careful! Do not do that!p I am only a fellow slave of you and of your brothers who have the work of witnessing concerning Jesus.q Worship God!r For the witness concerning Jesus is what inspires prophecy.”s
      11 I saw heaven opened, and look! a white horse.t And the one seated on it is called Faithfulu and True,v and he judges and carries on war in righteousness.w12 His eyes are a fiery flame,x and on his head are many diadems.* He has a name written that no one knows but he himself,13 and he is clothed with an outer garment stained* with blood, and he is called by the name The Wordy of God.14 Also, the armies in heaven were following him on white horses, and they were clothed in white, clean, fine linen.15 And out of his mouth protrudes a sharp, long swordz with which to strike the nations, and he will shepherd them with a rod of iron.a Moreover, he treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty.b16 On his outer garment, yes, on his thigh, he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.c
      17 I saw also an angel standing in the sun, and he cried out with a loud voice and said to all the birds that fly in midheaven:* “Come here, be gathered together to the great evening meal of God,d18 so that you may eat the flesh of kings and the flesh of military commanders and the flesh of strong mene and the flesh of horses and of those seated on them,f and the flesh of all, of freemen as well as of slaves and of small ones and great.”
      19 And I saw the wild beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage war against the one seated on the horse and against his army.g20 And the wild beast was caught, and along with it the false propheth that performed in front of it the signs with which he misled those who received the mark of the wild beasti and those who worship its image.j While still alive, they both were hurled into the fiery lake that burns with sulfur.k21 But the rest were killed off with the long sword that proceeded out of the mouth of the one seated on the horse.l And all the birds were filled with their flesh.m

      • Coimbatore Isaac

        Yeah you are exactly right in pointing out For he has executed judgment on the great prostitute who corrupted the earth with her sexual immorality.
        But execution of judgment on the great prostitute who corrupted the earth occurs after the Eighth King coming into power and consolidate all political (REV:13:16-17 is nothing but political consolidation process) and world religions under one Umbrella under the New age religion based on Baha’i ideology and under that cover he achieves Peace and security. So first this has to take place, then the 8th King = King of North will magnify himself above every religion Dan:11:37:He will show no regard for the God of his fathers; nor will he show regard for the desire of women (Bride of Christ = Woman of Christ, The world empire of false religion= Harlot woman, Freemasonry = that woman Jezebel, Nation state system = Political woman) or for any other god, but he will magnify himself over everyone.

        DESIRE OF THE WOMEN (for more details contact easajw@gmail.com)

        After not giving any consideration or regards to any of these religion or religious involvement KON achieves a supreme state over every thing then the KON should plant his royal tents between the grand sea and the holy mountain of Decoration Dan:11:45= Invading of Christian congregation = Locust invading as described in Joel:1:4 and killing of the anointed ones (DAN:11:44). It is then Jehovah will take the action by For God put it into their hearts to carry out his thought, And the KON the wild beast, will hate the prostitute and will make her devastated and naked, and they will eat up her flesh and completely burn her with fire.REV:17:16-17.
        But you see now where is the 8th king he has to yet to come. HE HAS TO COMPLETE WHAT IS SAID ABOVE Why you see even now the 7th world power itself has not collapsed. That is why I said Jehovah to become king in the immediate future is not!! ANY CORRECTION PLEASE LET ME KNOW FOR I AM NOT LIKE NARROW MINDED GB.

        • The Raven

          What Robert means by immediate future is within the next few years. In fact, if war breaks out tomorrow, a lot sooner than that. Jehovah becomes king and begins to rule in rev. 19. That is when the marriage of the Lamb arrives. You stated Jehovah does not become king until rev.21 which is at the end of the thousand years. That’s what I was bringing your attention to. Even though humanity is still subject to death and sin rev 19 proves Jehovah becomes king and Christ His Shepherd for us.

  • PCDN

    I understand that those who will die during Armageddon will not be ressurected ( because that will be Jehovah’s judgement. But, what about those who will die During the GT?

    • The Raven

      Notice that those who die at the hands of the horsemen go to the common grave, not gehenna, the lake of fire. They will be resurrected. Rev 6:8

  • Isaac of Coimbatore

    How many of you are going to comment on this Thursday’s meetings on Zechariah:chapter 1-8. Have you seen https://www.jw.org/en/publications/jw-meeting-workbook/december-2017-mwb/meeting-schedule-dec11-17/ and the link (w17.10 27-28 ¶7-8)? One mountain represents Jehovah’s universal and eternal ruler ship. The other mountain represents the Messianic Kingdom in the hands of Jesus. Is this correct?
    The copper mountain represents the Kingdom of Christ not the Kingdom of Jehovah. Why copper? The reason given is: Like gold, copper is a metal that is highly valued. Jehovah directed that this shiny metal be used in the construction of the tabernacle and later in the temple in Jerusalem. Here they have degraded the Jehovah’s quality. Is Jehovah is behind only shiny things or what is physical just as a common man? They have given verse Ex. 27:1-3; 1 Ki. 7:13-16) but failed to give Ex:30:18.

    In Christian setting how the water should be understood? After washing the priest enters into the holy place similarly Jesus said to at John: 3:5: “Most truly I say to you, unless anyone is born from water and spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. So what is then WATER? Just as how the water in the copper vessel cleansed the priests so in Christian setting also we have the word of Jesus to cleans us that is what John:3:15 says: You are already clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. If Water is the word of Jesus that means the copper vessel must represent Jesus himself who contained the living water. Yes Jesus acknowledged it at Mat: 4:13:14: In answer Jesus said to her: “Everyone drinking from this water will get thirsty again. Whoever drinks from the water that I will give him will never get thirsty at all, but the water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water bubbling up to impart everlasting life. So what’s the point here in connection to Zechariah: 6:1 copper mountains? Connect the copper vessel in the tabernacle it represented Jesus himself!! Yes to give a strong proof that copper represents Jesus take John: 3:14-15: And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so the Son of man must be lifted up, so that everyone believing in him may have everlasting life.
    Now just ask yourself what serpent Moses used? A Copper serpent (Numb: 21:8). Jesus draws an analogy to himself to a copper serpent hung by Moses on the stake.
    So now equate copper vessel with that of the copper serpent hung by Moses it clearly refers to Jesus Christ. So Copper represents to Jesus Christ.
    You may think copper is inferior metal with respect to Gold. Why Jesus is symbolically shown to inferior metal. It has got dual meaning the Gold is used in the Most holy which is the presence of Jehovah, Since Jehovah represents gold then according to John:14:28: ……….. I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I am. So in that respect Jesus is Copper with reference to Jehovah. (Trinitarians should think this).
    Then the kingdom of Jesus is also the kingdom of holy ones. Thus the two mountains represents that the Kingdom of Christ is not only made up of Christ alone but as well as the anointed ones who are from mankind. The difference must be shown that is why two mountains.
    Well you may have doubt Jesus is copper so his kingdom represents Copper Mountain. How can another copper mountain represent the kingdom which is also made by these anointed one who are from mankind? Should it not represent mud or clay?
    Well when the anointed ones believe in the ransom sacrifice of Jesus Christ make sacrifice and get cleaned with the word of Jesus it is as if priest in the tabernacle washing in the copper vessel. When these anointed ones martyred during the rule of last 8th or the King of North and when go to heaven they become like Jesus himself. Phil: 3:17 directly tells that: But our citizenship exists in the heavens, and we are eagerly waiting for a savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our humble body to be like his glorious body. Further 1st John: 3:2 directly says that during Jesus’ manifestation the anointed ones will be like Jesus himself: We do know that when he is made manifest we will be like him, because we will see him just as he is.
    So if Jesus transforms the body of anointed as Jesus himself, they become like Jesus that is why Jesus kingdom is also made up of humans taken from earth it is still represents as copper, but still Jesus is great because it is he who gave the anointed ones the salvation and it is Jesus who transformed their body into his likeness. So though the kingdom is same (copper) but to show the difference between Jesus and the mankind taken from earth transformed into sprit two copper mountains are shown (Christ’s kingdom made up of Christ + Anointed ones)but same kingdom (same metal copper).
    Jesus kingdom is represented of Copper, because how the copper cleanses even the microbes in water, similarly when Jesus kingdom establishes it will clean every single micro, Nano, Pico and femto vestige of Satan’s system, so it is represented as Copper Mountain. You see Rev: 1:15: Jesus is described as and his feet were like fine copper. Why when he comes in the congregation just as how copper cleanses the water similarly when he arrives he will clean the congregation. You take Rev: 2:18: When he is speaking to Thy•a•tiʹra congregation again Jesus is described as that his feet were like fine copper. Why again and again the copper is mentioned? If Jesus is saying something means, it is serious and has immense meaning. Jesus is not a novel write to fill the pages of the Bible nor will he give unnecessary details unless until it is of utmost important that effects his very congregation. That means copper means Jesus as it is associated with him directly both in Revelation: 1:15 and 2:18
    See one more thing why Copper Mountain represents Kingdom of Jesus not Jehovah’s. See copper cleanses even the microbial part of the water. Even during the peaceful 1000 year rule of Jesus Christ death is not still removed. That means the earth is not fully cleansed, so still copper is required. When Satan is freed after 1000 years rule of Jesus some will still be contaminated by Satan hence during his final rule still Jesus has the cleaning work to do with this earth so his kingdom is still copper. His kingdom’s main purpose is to clean the earth. Only after that the earth is clean and Jesus hands over his kingdom back to his father (1st: Corinth: 15:28) that is having taken the whole creation especially the mankind and entered into the most holy. It is as if a priest washing himself in the copper water and enter into the most holy in the presence of Jehovah.
    See the metal used in the most holy. It is Gold. Jehovah’s standard is Gold. Even though resurrection happens in Jesus’ kingdom still death existed. But you see Rev: 21:4: And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. See the timing when it happens? Se Satan is eliminated in chapter 20 itself but death will be no more verse occurs in chapter 21 that is when Jehovah himself sits in the throne and becomes King not even when Jesus is King. Hence Jehovah’s Kingdom is Gold, while that of Christ is copper. So the WTS or templelijah telling that copper mountain represents God’s Kingdom is totally unacceptable.

    • Song of Hannah

      👏🏼👍🏼🤗🙂

    • into the light

      How shallow is the explanation that they give regarding why copper is used:

      Appropriately, then, the copper of the two symbolic mountains reminds us of the excellent quality of Jehovah’s universal sovereignty and of the Messianic Kingdom, which will provide stability and blessings to all mankind.

      https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2017607#h=15:0-17:0

      WT explanation is purely from the materialistic standpoint. Copper is quality and that’s why it’s used. But every aspect of the temple had symbolic meaning. From its measurements to details like horns on the altar and decorations on the walls. What’s interesting is also that the two pillars on the temple entrance, Boaz and Jachin, were also made from copper. It makes sense symbolically that thru Jesus and his chosen ones we enter the spiritual temple.

      • Burt Reynolds

        Maybe copper was used, because like gold and silver, it can be smelted into a pure form. Oddly, it was purified by electricity, with gives some authenticity to the use of electricity by ancient peoples. If I recall correctly, it also signified strength.

        • into the light

          Well of course. But it also has the symbolic menaning to it as well. I think Isaac summed it up nicely.

          • Burt Reynolds

            Sorry. I was not meaning to pontificate!

            • into the light

              No worries, Burt, I didn’t take it that way.

    • Anderiega

      Wow brother. That was deep. Thank you for these words to chew on.

  • Burt Reynolds

    That’s interesting. I had always applied ‘do not be terrified’, to the actual tribulation times, not to before when nothing is happening of any consequence because it was not a time to fear. I was rather planning on not being terrified and keeping calm in the face of danger while all hell broke loose about me and having faith in the strong arm of Jehovah. Sigh….I’m too tired to get terrified any more. I lack the motivation. I’m going to have to do the English thing, put my feet up, have a cup of tea. ‘ I say old bean, that was a bit of a bang. Looks like they’ve got the Rose and Crown!’

    • The Raven

      It’s become absurd. Like pop goes the weasel. You know it’s going to happen but everyone’s so tired of being terrorized by breathless media whores over every little thing most have become apathetic. Not much we can do about it. My neighbors will all be standing around, beer in hand wondering who’s having a BBQ.

  • Craig Knight

    I realize that my ranting about the 1914 fraud has no influence over anyone in the leadership of the Watchtower. Mine is just a tiny voice, easily ignored. That’s the reality. But I am supremely confident in the truth. I fully expect Jehovah to become king in the immediate future, which is to say I anticipate the Second Coming of Christ in the days ahead.

    Yes Robert the WT leadership will never recant what they say about 1914 basically to try to prevent a mass exodus. Apparently their ego’s are more important to them than truth. These men are master’s of deceit. The JW foot soldiers are also totally in the dark about the length of the Tribulation as well. Just this week I got a chance to discuss how the Tribulation will occur with my sister and my mother. Of course my mom had to end up in the hospital before I could speak to her. I explained to her the two 3 1/2 year periods and she was very interested in it but seemed to have never thought about it before. I told them both not to be surprised when the WT collapses and to not be discouraged when that happens but to stay close to Jehovah. A little witness to my family of witnesses.

      I appreciate you. How is your mother and what happened and how old she is?

        Hi Isaac! She is 88 years old and had a heart attack a few days ago. She is resting up a few weeks before her surgery. The hospital does bloodless surgery for JW’s so she is in good hands there. But she is so frail it could go either way at this point. Thanks much for asking.

          You said: But she is so frail it could go either way at this point. Well I understand the difficulty of 88 years my father too is 88 years old man. Is surgery possible at this age? You mean angioplasty? Whatever be the case I will pray for your mother and for your family. May Jehovah be with your family and may the outcome of the surgery be positive and may your mother live long. I will include you and your family and your mother in my family prayer.

            Hi Isaac – It’s going to be a tough surgery for her but it has to be done because her arteries are blocked very badly. So it’s in God’s hand at this point. Thank you for the kind words. You’re such a good Brother. I am happy to have met you. Jehovah bless all you do!

    rev 12 telsl us that a war i heaven causes a massive change in both heaven and on the earth.
    we are told that it is then that the Power of The kingdom has come and yet we are also told that although this is a time for rejoicing in Heaven it is not so for the earth because the devil is cast to the earth.
    knowing that he has a short time period to do what he wants to do.
    So does that mean that there is a period of time between Satan arriving and establishing the eighth King (by the creation of global warfare and upheaval of mankind to slay the seventh head and so produce the eighth Kingthe one world Government), and the arrival of Christ
    . i suspect that the answer is yes there is
    Christ does not arrive at the same time as Satan as the WT inadvertently teach but there is a delay to allow Satan to establish and rule with his eighth king

    No one knows the hour
    No one knows the day
    Jesus is coming soon
    All creation trembles, longing for the day
    Jesus is coming soon

    There will be judgment
    There will be mercy
    On that terrible day
    Leaders will bow down
    Kingdoms will fall down
    Have you felt your world begin to shake?

          Definitely like this guy Joseph. Just this minute finished listening to that track and loving the message of the song and the unusual sound. It’s different. Keep waking up with Kari Jobe’s song in my head. Theses songs along with the singers gives me the ‘shivers’. Thanks again. 👏🏽💦💦❤️ X

    will Jehovah become king and Christ return in the days ahead? is Jehovah becoming King the same event as the return of Christ?
    there surely is a great deal to happen yet
    War in heaven , satan evicted , a short period of time for Him to cause the death stroke of the 7th head and establish his eighth king, the mark of the beast, and then the two witnesses empowered by the return of Christ as a final witness for the whole world of mankind who take their stand against him.
    a major part of the WTO deluding influence was teaching that nation against nation was the sign that Christ was invisibly present, in reality these signs are not signs that he has come but signs that mark his imminent return.The Flood that swept them all away was depicting the arrival of Christ that will also result in their destruction, Christ told us that when we see these signs we know that he is near at the door,

    and he is near but a great deal has to happen and he only returns once does he not?
