1) Does the faithful and discreet slave include all anointed brothers at bethel or just the Governing Body? Jesus indicated that he will appoint a slave to spiritually feed his body of attendants their food at the proper time. When we consider that Jesus commanded his disciples to preach the good news to the entire world, we can better appreciate what is involved. The food at the proper time would strengthen Christ’s slaves to ...

Why do you refer to Jesus as the Prince of princes when the book of Daniel refers to him as one of the foremost princes? The person who became Jesus has lived the most extraordinary life. Prior to his becoming human Jesus was a spirit creature named Michael. Being a son of the King made him a prince as well —one of many angelic sons or princes. There are also dark princes —demonic spirits ...

QUESTION: If the man of lawlessness is operating undetected, even among the chosen ones right within Christ's congregation, have not the chosen ones already been misled or deceived? After all, only Jehovah and Jesus can spot counterfeit Christians, correct? Absolutely. This is the point. It is the message I have been hammering on all these years. Jehovah’s Witnesses are under a deluding influence —an operation of error if you prefer. And because they are ...

1. Do you feel paragraph 27 (below) is accurate? 2. Do you have a more accurate Daniel image (legs down) than the one above?  3.

The rise of the last king
With the global scope of a migration/immigration “crisis” do we find any reference to prophecy regarding this major trend?  Bible prophecy focuses almost exclusively on developments that have to do with the coming of Christ —either his first or more especially, his epic, Second Coming. The long-running prophecy of the kings of the north and south divulges some clues that may shed some light on the present state of affairs. Of course, it is ...

Please kindly explain Gog of Magog, King of the North and Babylon the great. Do they all mean the same thing? There are subtle differences, but similarities.

Gog of Magog comes on the scene in the final part of the days, but is the same as the ...

Can you provide a commentary on Hosea 6:1-2? Those verses read: “Come, and let us return to Jehovah, for he has torn us to pieces, but he will heal us. He struck us, but he will bind our wounds. He will revive us after two days. On the third day he will raise us up, and we will live before him.” As everyone who has ever read the Bible knows, the Israelites were God’s ...

Question: There are concerns that the earth might be struck by a large asteroid or comet and that the Yellow Stone caldera might erupt, either of which could destroy the world.

It has taken direct hits from huge meteors and comets. The most recent impact from flying cosmic debris ...

Please allow me to ask about what is your take on Daniel's 7 times, 2300, 1260, 1290 and 1335 days since his prophecy of 70 weeks of years pointed correctly to the first coming of Jesus? Ever since C.T. Russell first came on the scene the Bible Students and now Jehovah’s Witnesses, have been mesmerized by the seven times of Daniel’s prophecy. What is particularly interesting to me, though, is that the little Bible ...

Question: What did Jesus mean when he told the Jews at John 8:56: “Abraham your father rejoiced greatly at the prospect of seeing my day, and he saw it and rejoiced.” How did Abraham see Jesus’ day?

QUESTION: Why is the Watchtower closing down and selling so many kingdom halls? Are that many JW’s leaving the organization? I really have no insight into the Watchtower’s financial state.

I've heard you say before that what actually triggers Armageddon is when the Beast and/or Gog murders the remaining seed of chosen ones.

QUESTION: Do you agree with the WT explanation of Matthew 24:12 regarding the love of the greater number growing cold? The context seems to possibly hint otherwise. (Questions from Readers in October 1, 1984, Watchtower- 2nd question) Frankly, no. The Watchtower article linked to by the questioner was published 34 years ago. In the interim, a lot has happened. And not necessarily good. At the time the Watchtower’s answer may have seemed plausible. According ...

QUESTION: I am wondering if perhaps the moving of the capital of Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is part of the disgusting thing on holy ground? In a word, No. Although it is the central feature of end-times theology for various evangelical sects and cults, the establishment of Israel as a nation in 1948 has nothing whatsoever to do with the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Neither is President Trump’s recent recognition of Jerusalem as the ...

I may have just debunked the Bible: Q: If the Genesis account is to be believed, how would we explain: 1. How did Kangaroos make it all the way to just Australia from the Mountains of Ararat ?

QUESTION: Is there any Bible example(s) where Israelites or early Christians were under a "deluding influence"? The deluding influence --formerly called an “operation of error”--is a unique phenomenon associated with the return of Christ.

QUESTION: Jehovah’s Witnesses have long understood the facets of the sign of Christ’s presence to be a description of conditions that would precede the great tribulation.

There is an initial sequence of events that leads up to the tribulation, but we should not suppose it stretches ...

QUESTION: You've written at various times about the influence of Masonry within the Watchtower organization over the years, so I would like to have your thoughts on a recent adjustment in the New World Translation. In the 1984 edition, at Hosea 12:14, the NWT translators chose to use "Grand Master," and likewise at Malachi 1:6 we see the same usage. This has since been adjusted in the 2013 edition, where the Watchtower organization reverts ...

Why do Jehovah’s Witnesses believe the great crowd will live on earth when Revelation 19:1 clearly says the great crowd is in heaven? It is problematic when a single verse is used as the proof of a particular teaching.

QUESTION: When Christ returns to judge the billions of people for life or death, will it not take years, if not decades, to accomplish this feat/deed? No. The Scriptures refer to it as “that day,” as in the Lord’s day, or Jehovah’s day —indicating that it is a relatively short period of time, as is a 24 hour day. Basically, what people do now will determine their fate “in that day” anyway. For example, ...

QUESTION: The June 2017 Watchtower has a couple of articles entitled Keep Your Eyes on the Big Issue and Uphold Jehovah’s Sovereignty. The “big issue” is explained to be the ‘vindication of Jehovah’s sovereignty.’ The Watchtower has used this phrase since back in the 1930’s when Rutherford published a book called Vindication. But nowhere in the Bible do we even find the words “vindicate” or “vindication,” and there isn’t even any scriptural support for ...

This is a response to an email I recently received from one of Jehovah's Witnesses.  Satan has long used apostates in his efforts to seduce God's servants (Matt.13:36-39) Apostates may claim to worship Jehovah and to believe the Bible, but they reject the visible part of his organization. This is not true. The real apostates are very much apart of God’s organization. They praise the organization and exalt the Governing Body as the already ...

Question: If Jehovah is all-knowing, then he had to have known that Satan would rebel and that Adam and Eve would follow.

QUESTION: What is the "constant feature" mentioned in Daniel chaps. 8, 11, 12? The “constant feature” is what the Watchtower has explained it to be.

According to the Law given to Moses at Mount Sinai the priests attending to ...

Who Should Partake of the Memorial Emblems?
QUESTION: I have a question for you. What is your understanding of Revelation 6:10,11? The Watchtower interprets it in a way so that they may support their 1918 resurrection dogma.

QUESTION: Concerning the model prayer, where Jesus said “Let your Kingdom come, let your will take place, as in heaven, also on earth.” So my question is, if Jehovah’s will is taking place in heaven would that not mean that Satan was cast down 2000 years ago? (Slightly edited)  Keep in mind that our lifespan compared to God’s is virtually non-existent. The apostle Peter explained that one day to God is like a thousand ...

QUESTION: If the times of the gentiles is in future, as e-watchman claims, how are we to understand the scripture at Ezekiel 21:25-27, used as a principle proof text of the Appointed Times of the Nations (Insight volume), that the Gentile Times started when Jerusalem was destroyed sometime between 607-587 B.C.E.? (Question slightly edited) ANSWER: The verses in question read: “But your day has come, O fatally wounded, wicked chieftain of Israel, the time of ...

QUESTION: The January, 2016, WT study article stated that anointed persons are not necessarily more spiritual than non-anointed Christians. I understand the importance of humility and of never feeling superior to others, regardless of your privileges in God's service.  But how can it be said the anointed do not have any more holy spirit or special knowledge than that of the other sheep?  If this is not the case, why are we admonished to ...

How Will Zechariah 8:23 Be Fulfilled?
QUESTION: How are we to understand the identity of the false prophet, recorded at Rev 16:13? ANSWER: The Watchtower identifies the false prophet as the same entity as represented in the 13th chapter of Revelation as the two-horned beast that rises up from the earth and begins speaking as a dragon. This seems to be the correct interpretation. However, we may be certain that the “false prophet” has not come on the scene yet ...

QUESTION: At Mark 13:32 Jesus said: "Concerning that day or hour nobody knows, neither the angels nor the Son…” Is Jesus talking about his presence, which Jehovah’s Witnesses believe began in 1914, or is he talking about Armageddon? ANSWER: The simple answer is, Jesus was referring to the day and hour for the beginning of the conclusion and ultimately his presence among the chosen ones —not the world-ending war of Armageddon. The context makes ...

I know the WT always says its just anointed, but it seems more fitting that it would be all. Comparing what you have written on the topic if the weeds are being separated from the kingdom, if it was just representing anointed Christians how many weeds or impostor anointed would there ...

QUESTION: With the recent troubles in Ukraine and the Russian invasion of Crimea, is it possible that Russia is reemerging as the king of the north, as the Watchtower suggested might happen? ANSWER: Bluntly, no. And the reason Russia is not “reemerging” is because Germany and the Soviet Union never were the king of the north. It can be fairly easily demonstrated that the Watchtower’s interpretation of the prophecy of the kings of the ...

In the Reasoning from the Scriptures book, page 341, a question is asked: - Do the events associated with Christ’s presence take place in a very brief time or over a period of years?

QUESTION:  In 1Cor. 15 (29) Can you tell me what this verse means?  Mormons often cite this as authority for their practice of baptism for the dead.  What does "for the purpose of being dead ones" mean?  How could one have a purpose of being dead?  It is quite confusing for me.  ANSWER: The verse in question reads: “Otherwise, what will they do who are being baptized for the purpose of being dead ones? ...

QUESTION:  In your book Jehovah Himself Has Become King, in the chapter on Revelation, you wrote: "Contrary to presently prevailing assumptions, Jehovah’s Witnesses have not gotten out of Babylon the Great.

An angel told Jacob wen he was going to Haran that he was the true God saying "I am the true God of Bethel..." Is this not self-exaltation on the part of the angel?

There is definitely going to be another world war – consider it to be the last of a three-part series that began in 1914.

QUESTION: You call yourself a “watchman,” and on several occasions have (rightly) rejected the title of “prophet..” Why is it, that (at least as of yet) there have been no prophets raised up in modern times to prophesy against the modern-day Jerusalem (i.e., Bethel).

QUESTION: I've noticed on the Internet that many brothers and sisters fall prey to protestant views concerning the resurrection of the remnant of the 144000. Basically, they promote the "rapture" doctrine, which says the last ones of Christ's body are taken to heaven without having to die first. They base their conclusion on a literal interpretation of Paul's words "we shall not all fall asleep in death, but we shall all be changed" (1 ...

QUESTION: I again appeal to you for help in clarifying a paramount aspect of Christ’s parousia, which, according to our brothers in Bethel, supposedly is invisible.

I would be interested to know how you understand Revelation 6:2, since this Scripture is frequently used by the brothers to support the 1914 coronation.

QUESTION: Is the act of masturbation a sin? Humans have engaged in this act for a very long time, far predating Christianity.
