“The Days Are Near

and Every Vision Will Take Place”

Ezekiel 12:23

As all of Jehovah’s Witnesses know, and many others besides, the Watchtower pinpoints 1914 as the critical year when God’s Kingdom began ruling the world. In one way or another nearly all Bible prophecies have been interpreted in relation to that date.

As an indication of the importance attached to 1914, over the past 66 years there have been well over 6,000 references to 1914 in various Watchtower publications. And that is not including all of the related dates of 1918 and 1919, when supposedly other aspects of prophecy were fulfilled in succession.

But in spite of all that has been written and preached from doorsteps and speaker’s platforms, after 102 years of “Kingdom rule” Jehovah’s Witnesses are in the exact same situation the International Bible Students found themselves prior to 1914 —waiting for the coming of Christ.

Unfortunately, this past century has not been without casualties. Although the Watchtower does not publish stats on Jehovah’s Witnesses who leave the faith or who have been stumbled, the numbers are undoubtedly considerable. Counting interested persons who may have lost interest, it is quite likely well into the millions. And no doubt one of the primary reasons for the slow-motion falling away is the public record of the Watchtower’s many erroneous proclamations over the past 100 years.

Ironically, though, the predicament the leadership of Jehovah’s Witnesses have gotten themselves into was, itself, foretold in Bible prophecy.

As is understood, one of the ways God reveals his judgments is through patterns; whereby, developments in ancient times foreshadow things to come —establishing patterns of God’s dealings for the future.

As is also understood, at least by some, the nation of Israel in Bible times has a modern counterpart in Christ’s congregation —it having been established upon the foundation of the original law covenant. For example, the prophecy of Jeremiah reveals that God will enter into a new covenant with the house of Israel. But according to Christ and the apostles the new covenant is between Jehovah God and those who are born again, not with the literal nation of Israel. That being so, the references to the house of Israel in prophecy may also apply to Christ’s congregation.

Now consider the words of God recorded in the 12th chapter of Ezekiel. Speaking to his appointed watchman, Jehovah asked him: “Son of man, what is this proverb that you have in Israel that says, ‘The days go by, and every vision comes to nothing?’”

From our vantage point in the second decade of the 21st Century the answer is, the proverbial saying is an apt description of an unspoken, yet palpable expression among Jehovah’s Witnesses.

It is undeniable —the days have certainly gone by since 1914, a whole century in fact. Entire generations have come and gone. And yet “every vision” expounded upon as being fulfilled or in the process, has ultimately come to nothing. (Keep in mind that many of the prophecies recorded in the Bible were originally transmitted as visions.)

Because the days continue to “go by,” the trend in recent years has been for the Society to shift some things from the “fulfilled” file to the “future fulfillment” folder. For example, for decades the Watchtower taught that the parable of the wise and foolish virgins was fulfilled in 1918-1919. No more. Now it is understood to be a future event.

But while these so-called adjustments in understanding may be received by Jehovah’s Witnesses as “new light,” they are really an admission that thus far every vision has come to nothing.

Consider another example. Consider the Watchtower’s interpretation of the king of the north and south and the possibility of the Cold War leading into WWIII. Back in 1981 the AWAKE! Magazine carried an article in the June 8th issue regarding the Cold War standoff between the USA and USSR in which it stated:

Will this nationalistic “pushing” match result in World War III? Possibly. The world political situation certainly looks hopeless from a human point of view. But there is another point of view to be considered. Just as God’s Word correctly predicted the present tense world situation, it also predicts the outcome. Without specifying whether or not the present arms race will touch off World War III, it does make this statement about our times: “But the nations became wrathful, and your own wrath came, and the appointed time for the dead to be judged, and to give their reward to your slaves the prophets and to the holy ones and to those fearing your name, the small and the great, and to bring to ruin those ruining the earth.”—Rev. 11:18.

Besides the fact that the USSR has come to nothing and as a result the Watchtower has even admitted it has no clue as to the identity of the king of the north at this point in time, on the one hand 35 years ago WWIII was presented as a very real possibility. However, elsewhere (Reasoning book -1989) the Society dismisses WWIII as an impossibility.

And to be sure, one statement is not in revision of another. The Watchtower actually holds two completely contradictory positions simultaneously to suit their purpose. But why?

Because first and foremost, as already stated, the Watchtower is committed to promoting 1914 as the most important date in history —the coming of Christ to rule the world; the beginning of the conclusion of the system, and most everything else. And because of that commitment the seers and visionaries of Bethel who are responsible for explaining the meaning of the prophets are compelled to twist and bend and tweak their teachings to reinforce 1914. Supporting 1914 is paramount.

So, in the instance of the citation above, back during the Cold War the Watchtower considered World War III a realistic possibility, but only as an immediate prelude to Armageddon and nothing more. But another world war is discounted as impossible as regards it having anything to do with the fulfillment of Jesus’ words regarding nation rising against nation and kingdom against kingdom.

In other words, according to the Watchtower, yes, world war —even nuclear war is possible; however, it is regarded as absolutely impossible that the Kingdom of God could assume power at any point in the future!

Jehovah went on to say to Ezekiel: “This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah says: ‘I will cause this saying to cease, and they will no more use it as a proverb in Israel.”’

How will Jehovah cause the saying to cease —the saying that the days go by and nothing ever happens?

God continues, commanding his watchman to tell the “Israelites”: “‘The days are near, and every vision will take place.’ For there will no longer be any false vision or flattering divination within the house of Israel. For I, Jehovah, will speak. Whatever word I speak will be done without any more delay.”

The expression “flattering vision” used to be translated as “double-faced divination.” Double-faced divination is another way of saying hypocritical or contradictory interpretations. But “flattering divination” is also appropriate, since the Watchtower always seeks to elevate itself in the eyes of  Jehovah’s Witnesses. 

In order to do that the Watchtower has shifted many of the unflattering denunciations found in prophecy to times past; some back to 1918, when Jesus supposedly refined the organization into gold. Or, Jehovah’s judgments are more typically directed against Christendom. In every instance, though, the leadership of Jehovah’s Witnesses interpret prophecy to flatter themselves and the organization as the infallible mouthpiece of God.

But all of that is coming to an end. The “apocalypse delayed” —as one former JW put it —will be delayed no longer. The days are near for the visions to actually take place “without any more delay.”

What visions might that include? Virtually all of them. Foremost, the visions of Revelation, which include the unsealing of the seven seals; the second of which betokens peace being taken from the earth, so that a great slaughter ensues.

Since the Watchtower’s interpretation of Revelation is unquestionably a “false vision,” the actual opening of the seals will result in war on an unprecedented  scale —yes, World War Three. And although the Watchtower once admitted that WWIII was possible, that was a long time ago. Even though the situation is much more dire now then at any time during the Cold War, the vaunted watchmen have nothing to say about the current state of affairs in the world.

The outbreak of global war will be as though Jehovah gives the command. And in rapid succession all of the visions will unfold, as if God will be speaking then in real time. 

The leadership of Jehovah’s Witnesses may consider themselves put on notice: The days are near. And every vision will take place.

      Dear Brother King,
      I am also thinking of doing this, albeit mailing it anonymously. Do you approve of this?

      Let me put one together. Tomorrow’s looking to be kind of crazy. So, maybe Tuesday

        it downloads fast! thanks

  • Rose Castro

    Simply amazing. I had forgotten that back in the 1980’s, when I was a kid attending meetings, the WT actually taught that WW3 was a possibility. In fact, I only remember the teaching that WW3 wasn’t possible. You always bring an answer to questions I have. Thank you Mr King.

  • Please8834

    Hello Robert
    Question..,Commenting today’s text, Wednesday March 16th Begins with .”
    Soon, our lives will seem to be in peril. By the climax of the great tribulation, the governments of this world will have devastated and completely destroyed religious organizations that were larger and more numerous than ours” My question is
    About the last couple of sentences particularly “the governments of this world will have devastated and completely destroyed religious organizations that were larger and more numerous than ours” can you tell me who the Religious organization’s the WT describing as “Were” larger and more numerous than ousr? Is in reference to? also is the Watchtower saying they will be excluded from this destruction? if you have a moment to address this. Thank you

    • ewatchman

      Yes, the WT is saying they will NOT be devastated when Babylon the Great is destroyed. They are implying that the organization in its present form will remain intact through the destruction of organized religion and then gog will turn his attention on Jehovah’s Witnesses.

      What they refuse to accept is that the WT is going down first, before Babylon is destroyed. Hence, that is why at some point in the future the angel will give the command: “Get out of her my people.” Jehovah’s Witnesses are destined to be dominated and conquered by the last king and his harlot consort. The attack of gog will come after God has restored a faithful remnant. However, the WT won’t be around then.

      • Leighton Williams

        Powerful points to ponder on.

      • jacob

        So, correct me if I’m wrong; you are saying that Rev 18:4 is in reference to those OUTSIDE the organization, and not those under the New Covenant and WITHIN the organization? Aren’t THEY actually God’s people? Exod 6:7; Jer 30;22

        • ewatchman

          No, I am saying the whole organization is going into captivity analogous to what the Jews experienced when Babylon destroyed Jerusalem. The WT’s claim that the Bible Students got out of Babylon in 1919 is all part of the kingdom-has-come hoax.

          • jacob

            I agree with the 1919 thing, but are you saying that once this earthly Babylon destroys the Watchtower, it is then that a remnant will come out at the call of Rev 18:4? What about all of those coming out now? Are they part of the remnant? People are leaving the organization in droves, and many are turning to Christ, very aware of the sins within the Watchtower, which pretty much fulfills that call. John 7:37,38

      • Please8834

        Follow up question..
        During the persecution of Christ Brothers ,aside from the Courts will the synagogues in which they will be delivered up to, be the kingdom halls rather than the synagogues or Babylon the great or will it include both?

        • D34D 4L!3N

          i know we’r talking about future events but still while you wait for an answer, here is some info if ya want –

  • tortas

    It is literally shocking to see how Jw’s react when you hint that the WT might be wrong. My own family thinks im crazy. I once sent a relative who’s in prison some of E watchman’s information, his reply was just a note with the words; I will miss you in paradise

    • Erik

      It is sad that your own family member has already labeled you as disapproved in Jehovah’s eyes.
      (despite the fact you are a person who loves spiritual things)
      But the sad fact is, many (if not most) JW’s already consider anyone outside the organization as “dead” unless they join the ranks of the WT. Needless to say, the decision as to who will survive and who won’t is not left in the hands of mortals and therefore it is unconscionable to judge anyone. It’s little wonder why “many will be stumbled” when the day comes that instead of being the only religious organization still standing they are, in fact, one of the first to be eliminated during the great tribulation. At that time many will become confused, afraid and even feel abandoned. However, be assured there will also be others who will turn against all those who’ll want to continue to be loyal to Jehovah’s word although there is no longer an organization.
      Although the majority will not know it, this period of time will be a separating work.
      Those who are aware of what is happening will need to take the lead in helping honest hearted ones remain faithful and explain to them what is happening.
      Although that help will come primarily from those who are anointed it will also come from those who are not.
      What a privilege it will be to help others during this difficult and confusion time and what a shock it will be to many JW’s that this will come from those who were not considered as “pillars of strength” in the congregation.

    • D34D 4L!3N

      its like Bklyn Kevin said with the minds under the WT’s delusional influence – rule #1. – the Watchtower’s always right. rule #2. – if the Watchtower is wrong, see rule number one.

      i think it would make a great bumper-sticker. maybe get some brothers & sisters to think

  • Beverly kenyon

    Once again, Brother King delivers a blistering article with the latest Kingdom Bulletin. Chipping away at the whitewashed wall until soon it will be demolished. Some of the comments he received from witnesses when he e-mailed them the article were so rude and ignorant. Everything Brother King writes is backed up by the bible – God Word – so if they can just expand their closed minds, and check out what’s written they will see beyond all reasonable doubt it is the truth that man is writing about. Reading all the material on this site, including all the comments – except the ones I’ve mentioned above – just strengthens my faith even more in Jehovah God,s promises. We need his Kingdom now more than ever! Things are getting pretty dire!!

  • Sam

    Great bulletin Robert.. and I really enjoyed todays (March 16th) Commentary. Quite amazing like you said to see just how offended our brothers are at receiving a scriptural message. There focus is so strongly on man and not scripture sadly.. still, it’s good that it’s received the backlash that it has. At least it shows you’ve hit all the right notes!

  • great article Robert I just read the comments and they just don’t know there not getting it and trying to reach them is like beating your brow. if only they really took the time to read over the accurate knowledge and test the inspired word of god maybe then they would understand but no instead they just dismiss and ridicule all of your wonderful efforts. many have done it to jesus and there doing it to you. its very saddening all you want to do is help them to see and understand the truth but all of your wonderful efforts are not in vain Robert because Jehovah has sent you as his messenger and you have reached my self and many others and we will try to help you do the same for all who are truly seeking truth and understanding.

  • Brian

    A very good article Robert, in fact it reinforces my view that the Jehovah’s Witnesses never were the “God’s Organisation” on earth. An operation of delusion from the start only confirms that they have “made their house” on sand foundations to be washed away in the coming storm.

    • ewatchman

      Following your line of “reasoning” the Israelites were never God’s people.

      • Kevin b

        If JWs are not part of God organization on earth, does that mean the 144,000 are made up of people other than JWs?

        • ewatchman

          The first century Christians were the first to have the heavenly calling, so, yes, obviously the 144,000 are not exclusively Jehovah’s Witnesses.

          • Kevin b

            Exactly, the 144,000 are taken from Jehovah’s people today, who are part of his earthy organization. In the future we will need the separate ourselves from this organization or go down with it.

            • Bklyn Kevin

              And an army was given over, together with the constant feature,* because of transgression; and it kept throwing truth to the earth, and it acted and had success.And I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to the one speaking: “How long will the vision of the constant feature* and of the transgression causing desolation continue, to make both the holy place and the army things to trample on?” 14 So he said to me: “Until 2,300 evenings and mornings; and the holy place will certainly be restored to its right condition Daniel 8:12-14

              Matthew 22 In fact, unless those days were cut short, no flesh would be saved; but on account of the chosen ones those days will be cut short..“15 Therefore, when you catch sight of the disgusting thing that causes desolation, as spoken about by Daniel the prophet, standing in a holy place (let the reader use discernment), 16 then let those in Ju·deʹa begin fleeing to the mountains.

            • Danny

              The word organization appears 40.000 times in wt library but only 0 times in the bible. Does that tell you anything?

            • the word microwave appears 150 in the WTL and 0 in the Bible. big deal. 0_o

        • Danny

          The 144.000 is not a literal number. The twelve tribes are not literal so why would the this be? Read Rev 7:3-8 and wake up.

      • Brian

        I am not sure why you would think that I would say that the “original” Israelites were not “God’s people” as he was the one that created them to be a presence for him and to carry the promised seed. What we have today is a bunch of people running around saying that God has “chosen” them when in fact we are still under the control of the long winded apostasy.
        I don’t see how the holy spirit could have been directing Charles Russell to be the founder of God’s earthly organisation (as if he needs one) so he could write such cracker novels as the Studies in the Scriptures. I wonder what the Holy Spirit was thinking when it directed him to write these and other little beauty’s and then come up with the 1914 (his second attempt after 1874 fizzled out).
        In fact looking at the history of the Bible students management, and their proclamations since 1919 you would be forgiven for thinking that the Holy Spirit might have been on a an extended vacation during this period!
        I know there seems to be a lot of good hearted people associated with the Witnesses, but there is also a lot of them that are not associated with them.

        • Bklyn Kevin

          Jehovah is a God of Judgment

          It is inconceivable in the minds of Jehovah’s Witnesses that the Watchtower could be in error on something as fundamental to the organization as 1914 and the invisible presence of Christ. And it is even more unthinkable that certain men within the leadership have knowingly misled Jehovah’s Witnesses. But from Jehovah’s standpoint such “men trust in defrauding” trusting Christians who look to them as God’s sole channel. So, God has allowed them to support themselves upon this error, as if it were a solid, impenetrable wall. But what happens when Christ suddenly, unexpectedly comes? Their wall is certain to come crashing down, “suddenly, in an instant.”

          The 13th chapter of Ezekiel uses the same analogy, describing it as a whitewashed wall, erected and maintained by those whom Jehovah denounces as “the stupid prophets.” And indeed, is it not an act of sheer stupidity to attempt to relegate Christ’s powerful presence into meaninglessness, as if the Lord of the world would indefinitely allow himself to be defined and controlled by a mere earthly institution?

          Furthermore, in Ezekiel Jehovah locates the “stupid prophets” as operating within his national grouping, among his people, indicating that the judgment will remove them, saying: “In the intimate group of my people they will not continue on, and in the register of the house of Israel they will not be written…” Undoubtedly, that judgment will coincide with the evil slave being cast out and the man of lawlessness being brought to nothing by the powerful manifestation of Jesus Christ.

    • D34D 4L!3N

      whats your view being reinforced?
      Jehovah takes the Organisation into captivity then destroys the nations he allowed to take them captive, letting them free to inherit the earth, yet their not God’s? then whos are they?

      • Brian

        Who indeed. I know there will be a gathering of those that are “chosen”. Who are the ones that are “Chosen” today, and if they are chosen why is there a need for a separation when the angels come to sort and gather together those that are truly Jesus brothers?
        I am of the opinion that the JW’s, whilst close to the truth are still not “it”, they are just part of the the larger deception that has been with us since the last apostle was on the earth, there are represented in the letters to the congregations which I see as all of those that believe Jesus is the saviour of mankind.
        The letters to the seven congregations in Revelation really do depict all of the problems that are associated with the so called Christians and their congregations.
        Because of the 1914 belief, many scriptures were used to try and “shoe horn” events into the last 102 years, one which is particularly bad is the separation that the JW’s thought they were being directed to do, this of course was brought about by their belief that the collection of “chosen ones” ceased in 1935 and since then the have been collecting people on the basis of a earthly hope which was never part of the good news of the Kingdom.The good news was that Jehovah is going to take for himself a group of people from the earth and give them them an eternal, spiritual existence with him and Jesus and no doubt all of the others in that realm.
        To me, this would have to be the biggest wrong that they have done as the y are no longer collecting on the basis of a heavenly hope.
        As the scriptures state, many are called but few are chosen, if you have separated out the “chosen ones” before the separation you are locking up the Kingdom before mankind just as the Pharisees were accused of doing all of those years ago.
        Also you then become no better than the others that elevate dead people to be saints, this is also locking up the heavens/kingdom from mankind.
        These are very weighty issues , maybe some of the worst things organisations could be engaging in.
        I believe the separation will be an extremely intense time and the gathering will shock many people, especially those that think they are already chosen!

        • Jehovah’s witnesses are just that, his. – the end

          they are Jehovah’s. he is who they belong to. thats why he places them in exile then out. thats like duh. – John 10:16

          • Brian

            If you say so, brainwashed much?!

            • its not my say, its Jehovah’s. you seriously think Jehovah allows his name to be attached to anybody? thats why theres a separation.

              Q: “why is there a need for a separation when the angels come to sort and gather together those that are truly Jesus brothers?”

              A: Rev 2:9 Rev 3:9, 2-Thess 2:4;8 Matt 13:25, 1-John 2:18 Eze 9:6

              BAM! ->

              “9th chapter of Ezekiel applies to the Christian sanctuary. That is how “my concealed place” is to be understood – those who belong to Christ are concealed in him, in his spiritual sanctuary, along with those who do not belong to him but are mere agents of the Devil prior to the time they are purged.”

              “Because Jehovah’s Witnesses bear God’s personal name before the world, as did the typical house of Judah that fell under God’s judgment two and a half millenniums ago, and because anointed Christians are in a covenanted relationship with Jehovah, as were the Jews in Ezekiel’s day, it is Jehovah’s Witnesses who must first be made to know that he is Jehovah – as opposed to the nations. That is why it says throughout the prophecy of Ezekiel in many places: “And you people will have to know that I am Jehovah” – “you people” meaning God’s people.”

              “people who are called by my name”

              Amos 3:2

        • patri

          There are no chosen yet because they are only recognised at the point that God reveals them, in the near future when the kingdom comes to power. They have to undergo a test of faith love and loyalty just as the 1st century apostles, then they will support Christ in his battle for his kingdom, share his glory. That’s how I remember it from somewhere, hope that’s right.

          Time to look ahead whatever our calling.

          • who else observes the memorial and recognizes Jehovah and his son properly. just his witnesses of course.

            • patri

              Correcto! I’m just talking to my husband about the churches munching and slurping every few hours every day of the week.
              Will be thinking and missing all of you tonight…:(

          • Bklyn Kevin

            Basically you’re right however I will add some details.
            After the scattering and the separation these two witneses/7,000 on day 1,150 In to the great tribulation would have been refined like silver and gold and it’s at this point they are chosen / sealed and will commence with the final judgment against the nation’s for five months
            however when they have finished their witnessing,the wild beast that ascends out of the abyss will wage war with them and conquer them and kill them.
            Daniel 8:12-14. Revelation 9:5/ 10.Ravelation 11:3,7,

          • Brian

            Hi Patri, you know you are, as far as I am concerned with regards to scripture and the “calling”. I don’t believe anyone is chosen as yet contrary to what others may believe, the chosen will be just that, chosen at the end after the Kingdoms arrival and no time before. The point I am trying to make is as far as I can make out is that when someone is Baptised into the sacrifice of Jesus they are being called for a heavenly calling and not an earthly one as some imagine, there isn’t an “earthly” calling as the earth was made for mankind’s existence.
            So my take on it is this, there are 100’s of millions of people that have the heavenly calling but very few are chosen which aligns with “the many are called but few are chosen”.

            • Bklyn Kevin

              Some times you hear Jehovah’s Witnesses say that so-and-so is one of the 144,000, or something like that. But this is not really a proper thing to say since even though a person may be anointed – that is to say they have been called, invited – that does not necessarily mean that they will ultimately be approved — chosen. Read more>

            • thing i think about is Jehovah doesnt know them cause they will fail but chooses them for the reason they wont. at far as the 7000 durning the tribulation. but as far as anointed at the moment, well Judas was picked and yet Jehovah knew before hand one would betray him for 30 pices of silver. could Judas have changed that which was said by Jehovah? i mean he did have free will after all and it was written right there for him to read. even Jesus could have said hey apostles, dont be stupid and be the one who betrays me like its written and end up dead. but Jesus did say as much durning the passover and yet Judas still did it.

              so, must be a difference between those 7000 and anointed now before the tribulation?

            • Bklyn Kevin

              I really enjoyed reading your comment – It sent me off in to a Whirlwind of thinking.

            • yeah i think of 1-Samuel 24:6 and 26:9 too. Saul was anointed. so sad the way that guys life ended. i hate reading it. stupid idiot; ya just want to intervene and stop that fool from sinning against Jehovah, which i hope we all personally beg Jehovah to do with ourselvs cause we are all so stupid the scripture says there isnt so much as one of us who are in a better position as a “righteous man, not even one” (Rom 3:10-13) yet the bible says there are righteous resurrected also

            • then you think Robert is a liar. and im not going to take some reply oh well you dont think hed lying but he just thinks hes been anointed crap

            • Brian

              Hi, anyone can say they are anointed, in fact all should be saying that they are anointed as they have supposedly drawn themselves close to God via the calling through Jesus.
              It is Jehovah sending the Angels in to sort out these “anointed” ones that will decide who is and who isn’t receiving the prize of the heavenly calling.

            • Jehovah says – “whoever eats the loaf or drinks the cup of the Lord unworthily will be guilty respecting the body and the blood of the Lord. First let a man approve himself after scrutiny and only then let him eat of the loaf and drink of the cup. For the one who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment against himself.”

            • Brian

              If you read these scriptures in full, it would seem to be referring to such ones as being unworthy due to them eating the “loaf and drinking the wine” out of physical need and not in connection to the sacrifice that Jesus had made for all.
              If he eats and drinks in the knowledge of the body, he does not bring judgement upon himself for that reason.
              “For the one who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgement against himself” Do you recognise the sacrifice and acknowledge the body?
              So if people are taking the bread and wine without giving recognition to Jesus as being the one that died as the redeemer for all, then would come under judgement as part of the world as it states.
              What of those that recognise the sacrifice and the body and refuse to take the bread and wine, or even prevented from doing so?

            • i did read it in full. and as far as Robert has expressed here, even recently, and as far as talks given at every memorial ive been to, it as been explained that eating the bread and drinking the wine is an expression that Jehovah has personally let One know their poistion will be in heaven not on earth and so not everyone should be eating and drinking at the event whos does not qualify but to eat at home before gathering for that memorial. as far as i understand it is Jehovah that makes that determination not us. but you are stating everyone should eat and drink for the event.

              as far as rememberince, bread and wine is just bread and wine. its not required to remember what Jesus said. so that is the reasion why AT the memorial, not everyone should be taking because that is a symbolic expression that One has been approved by Jehovah for heaven. is everyone who is Christain going to be part of that new creation? obviously not.

            Patri, there is only one calling.

      It certainly is an operation of “delusion”, one of captivity with the intent to destroy. 2 Thess 2:9-12

      There is an important significance to the Watchtower, as inside are both “spiritual” Jews or spiritual “Israelites”, the anointed ones, as well as “spiritual” Gentiles. Both are at the mercy of the WT rule; but because the anointed ones are part of the Body of Christ, it appears to me that Matt 24:15 has fulfillment now. We know the anointed are God’s chosen brothers as well as God’s Temple, his House. 1 Pet 2:5,9; Exod 30:30; 1 Cor 3:9

      1 Cor 3:16,– “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

      We also know those of the Jewish nation were “chosen ones” and offered the New Covenant under Christ until it was opened to the Gentiles through the rejection of the majority of Jews. Now we know that out of both physical entities the Body is formed, thus all of these anointed by the holy spirit become “Israel”. Rom 11:25,26 We are obviously aware that an anointing circumcises the heart since no longer is there a physical observance to this ritual.

      “For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.” Rom 2:28,29

      Though all of us who are receptive to it can receive direction from holy spirit, the burden of preaching and teaching falls on the chosen priesthood. 1 John 2:27; Mal 2:7; Heb 13:15

      Through the direction of the GB, the elder body is primarily spiritual “Gentiles” appointed to rule over God’s chosen priests. In God’s eyes, this is an “abomination, a disgusting thing”, a trampling of his Temple. Deut 17:12; Rom 8:33; Dan 11:31,32,36; 2 Thess 2:4; 2 Chron 23:6,7

      We can look elsewhere for this fulfillment, but as the scripture says, “let the reader use discernment”. It doesn’t take much discernment to see what’s happening in Satan’s world; but it does take reflection to realize the captivity in full force within the Watchtower. When we understand this, we leave for the Judean hills – “the land of the Jews” or spiritual Zion, New Jerusalem – at the direction of Christ. Rev 18:4-8

      “I know your works, tribulation, and poverty (but you are rich); and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.” Rev 2:9

      “Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.” Rev 3:9

      1 Cor 3:17 – “If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.”

      In reality, the WT is “the synagogue of Satan” with the sole purpose to destroy as many of the chosen ones, as well as those also caught in his snare….as possible.

  • Each member of the congregation will answer to Jehovah and Jesus for the decisions he or she makes, sounds like a day of judgment is in store.

  • hello every one. just got home from the memorial at the kingdom hall. I havnt been to the kingdom hall in 20 something years but decided to take my family and so we went and I have to say it was a wonderful experience. I really enjoyed the talk and the company of spiritual brothers and sisters. it was very uplifting and really helped me to clear my mind and see the direction I need to take. I feel so blessed because before this I spent a few years on line listen to Robert king reading his articles watching his videos and listening to his podcasts and because of that I feel as if I am ready to move forward in jehovah’s organization and be able to overcome the stumbling blocks that are infront of so many within the truth. thank you Jehovah for directing me and Strengthening me. thank you Robert for all the wonderful help and insight you provided. I would love to possibly be baptized one day but only Jehovah knows if that will happen but it is my intención to try and plant as many seeds as possible and I pray that Jehovah will help me to do so through my studies and interaction with my spiritual brothers and sisters. who can say what the outcome will be but at least I have a chance to try.

      Leonard, I am so happy to hear this!! My story is similar and just so Grateful to brother King and more importantly Jehovah and Jesus for allowing me to find this site. Brother King has removed so many stumbling blocks. Its our relationship with Jehovah and Jesus that is so crucial.

      • I’m very happy for you as well brother its such a wonderful blessing Jehovah has given us. it is very clear to me what Jehovah expects from me and Jehovah has helped me clear up a way with his directing. ive always known just as the father sent me to his son Jehovah has helped me to find Robert kings site. Jehovah knew exactly what I needed and he took care of me I am in awe! his love is so Glorious I have no words. I meet many people that are stumbled in the truth but I want them to know there is a way to get through that and move forward and no matter what the outcome may be just be faithful and leave it in jehovahs hands.

        Mark 10:27

        27 Looking straight at them, Jesus said: “With men it is impossible but not so with God, for all things are possible with God.”

      I am happy to hear you had a positive experience. And even for those who did not have a good experience (emailers) it is important to keep in mind that the brothers and sisters are not the enemy.

      I enjoyed the program too. It was one of the best memorial talks I have ever heard. And the two new songs were very nice too.

      • it surely was a great experience Robert and I was most happy to be with my brothers and sisters. and yes they are not the enemy and much of what I was thinking was how to reach whom ever might listen. as for me becoming baptized would be a great blessing for me but I think it is much more important to reach out to all those whom are stumbled. there is a very special opportunity for me here because I am not baptized so they cant just brand me an apostate or shun me no but rather I will be very Cousious and season my words with salt and make it my mission to reach whom I can. I am glad you to had a positive experience Robert its so nice to be with our brothers and sisters united under Jehovah and his love for us. and I’m sure Jehovah was smiling down apon you Robert because no matter what you stay the course and you remain faithful to spite all the errors in place you over come and correct and you continue to feed all of us spiritual food. I for one am very greatful for all of you wonderful endeavors. may Jehovah continue to be with you and bless you brother Robert.

        • Bklyn Kevin

          May Jehovah bless you and safeguard you. May Jehovah make his face shine upon you, and may he favor you.

          • may Jehovah continue blessing you with an accurate knowledge and his undeserved love and kindness. thank you for helping me to understand and overcome so much over the last few years. thank you for all of your help encouragement and Guidance. i am truly blessed and very greatful.

        Definitely heard better talks. Couldn’t understand some words from the speaker as he seems nervous and his voice was too low. There wasn’t much that was said as well. Just read a few basic verses and thats it. There is no effort to further explain about the importance of Jesus’s sacrifice nor how hard his sacrifice was nor how hard it was for Jehovah as well. It seemed nothing more than an occasion for JWs to dress up, at least that’s what we observed. It’s good that we had read your articles and they really gave us a deeper understanding on the sacrifice that Jesus made. We are thankful for that. At least our students did benefit from the very basic talk though. As for the songs, I really didnt know how to feel about them. Is it the same person who created some of their ungodly songs? Is it the faithful slave who made the song or the evil one? Is this song one of their ways to make Jehovah’s people forget his own name? I was only comfortable with singing the second song as I saw God’s name there and it would be weird if I didnt sing and our guests/ students would see me. It’s already a bad thing having to go somewhere where we are treated us invisible/ unwelcome foreigners but the talk just made it worse.

        • the memorial i attended was good. even during the end song a zelous sister wanted to share the truth with me thinking i was someone new to the truth just because i wasnt wearing a monkey suit & tie. i hope Jehovah blesses her.
          Robert an everyone here mite get a kick outa the begining of the talk how the speaker said more then once emphasizing how we observe the memorial untill Jesus return.
          personally i had a attitude problem after it was over but was better shortly after.
          oh, now i remember why i started to comment,.. i wanted to say yeah, the talks mite be a bit on the dull side for us who’ve known the truth but as we know much of the talks are said with the new guest in mind. but anyway all talks are hit an miss, at least for me. i can say for me usually they are all great talks and i cant ever pick a fave cause they are all so good.

          • Bklyn Kevin

            The talks mite be a bit on the dull side for us who’ve known the truth but as we know {much of the talks are said with the new guest in mind}.
            Great point you made, “POW”

      • Sam

        My experience is somewhat in the middle… our speakers aren’t known for doing much else than practically reading the outlines. But being with the brothers and being in a position to welcome others, new ones and the elderly who aren’t able to get out the house often was very nice. I realize some of us aren’t in a position to experience this. But i’m glad many of us were able to be there and observe the night. If nothing else brought us joy, i’m sure the event we were commemorating surely did!

        • Jonah Peter Paul

          Like I mentioned, we were really able to appreciate the occasion because of brother Robert’s explanations. I never personally appreciated the sacrifice both Jesus and God made to this extent, not until I was made aware of many things. For example for JWs paradise is nothing more than a giant park with friendly and tame animals plus everlasting life but through the Imagining Paradise article I was able to see and appreciate what kind of llfe God is going to give his people, the kind of life that Jesus died for in order to give it to us- life filled with many ideas that will come to life, life with happiness, joy, pleasure, excitement. Glad that you were able to welcome others. For us brotherhood was long dead. We are treated as enemies of God and the organization so there isn’t really anything to expect. Last year during memorial in that same congregation , an old sister was questioning me why we are attending in their kingdomhall if we belong in another one. She definitely wanted to make us feel uncomfortable occupying chairs for our students as well when the people in their congregation should be the ones who should be able to use it- but its a nasty attitude- very unchristian. Memorial should serve as a reminder of what example Jesus left for us, it shouldnt be a competition or an occasion where we put ourselves above others.

    • Thinking

      That is sooooo encouraging Leonard…..good for you…it’s a process isn’t it..and not always easy….

      • yes its a process but what a wonderful feeling of true joy it is.

  • just checking in. hope everyones doing ok even if you may have missed the memorial

  • “The outbreak of global war will be as though Jehovah gives the command.”
    How dare you LIE in His Name!
    If global war does happen,it will have nothing to do with Jesus Prophecy of the BIRTH-Pang Sign of War. The BIRTH-Pang Sign of Matt 24 and Mark 13 are happening right now amongst ANOINTED. Revelation 12:2 show WHERE the real Birth-pang Signs will be seen…and WHO are affected by the BIRTH-Pang Signs:The woman and Child being Born of Gods Kingdom. NOT within satans world,who is NOT supplying members of Gods Kingdom. Anointed as a group are.

      noun: psychosis; plural noun: psychoses
      a severe mental disorder in which thought and emotions are so impaired that contact is lost with external reality.

  • Bklyn Kevin. You talk just like the GB! I must be “mentally diseased” because i DARE to question your new false Anointed prophet. You went from believing the GB and their false prophecies,now you have another Anointed who is lying to you. So can call me all the names you like,but at least i am blest to know WHO and WHERE the “Birth-pang” Signs will happen. Where CHRIST SAID THEY WOULD HAPPEN. So why dont you PROVE Im mentally ill and show me from the scriptures how Birth-pangs happen to those NOT going through the “Birth-pangs”? Do you even know or understand WHO is affected by a Birth? Robert and the Lying Harlot GB say the Birth-pangs Signs happen within satans world. Is ANYONE from satans world going to rule with Christ…and be BORN into Gods Kingdom? WHO is going to BORN into Gods Kingdom? NO-ONE but Anointed. So anointed,before being allowed to enter Gods Kingdom,will have to go through “BIRTH-Pangs” to prove they are worthy of that Honor.
