ive been visiting roberts site now for about 10 years. baptized when i was 19 yrs but disassociated myself after couple of years . i agreed with jw bible principles and truths but never on prophecy; it just didnt make sense . im glad i found roberts site and to be taught by his insight.
Hi Brothers & Sisters I'm new to this site been visiting it daily for almost two weeks it was like I woke up it was funny I went through so many sites that did little to nothing to help my disillusionment they just further disturbed me and I felt my whole world falling apart I came here at a certain point of that breakdown and felt once again that Jehovah answers at exactly the right time.
I always wondered where the other ones were, if I was the only one going through this painful struggle in the organization seeing such
hypocrisy, yet not wanting to ever give up on Jehovah, and I found the lovely people on this site.
I have been reading the comment sections and witnessing the Love. I have been through a lot up to this point now it all feels like it has been all for a very good reason so here I am and I'm happy to be here just been reading Robert's book to get up to speed on the Truth about the Truth and so happy that I found it.
Hello dear brothers and sisters here. I am glad to have this guestbook where we can just meet together and exchange our information about Bible and our faith. We live in the very hard world for lovers of truth. Truth is hidden very deep and only few who dig can unearth it. This site and book and many articles help us to dig. WT literature also have much of the truth about God and Jesus but also much falsehoods about future events and Bible prophesies. Only diligent study can help to reveal what is going really to happen. Not everything is clear us but at least more than anyone who rely only on WT teachings. Let us continue to meet here and refresh each other .
Hello just wanted to thank you for this site ! I was baptized in 1978 and love Jehovah and Jesus very much however I had become inactive for several years and then decided I needed t return to Jehovah which I did in 2009. I've had a very hard time dealing with some of the changes that took place while I was gone the overlapping generations, and new light, blood fractions. I knew I had the truth but somehow I could not accept these changes. I made a friend that didn't want to tell me the truth about some silly thing and she went to the watchtower publications to justify telling a lie. I felt why would she turn to there publications to try and find a way to tell me a lie she knew a lie was wrong or at least she should have it should be written on our hearts! My point is she was more concerned with what the watchtower thought of a lie then what she knew Jehovah thought of it. It really got me thinking about the loyalty that a lot of the brothers and sisters have to the watchtower! Thank you for your site it makes so much sense to me now!
Hello jtk. This is the truth here. Join in. Drink life's steps free.
Just want to say thank you. I was about to quit my bible study again having been absent 20 years until I found this site. Whether you have all the answers or not the angels must surely be rejoicing at your shepherding success.
in my mid thirties and asking some serious questions about life and God and realizing that the world could not survive without a stable government led by a moral person i realised that only Jesus Christ could be that person.
a knock came to the door and a WT mag was presented, i knew nothing of Jehovahs Witnesses, but i knew that there was a one that worked where i did, so i asked him some questions.
Paradise earth, Gods kingdom, eternal life came flooding at me and my heart pounded with joy. I had found the truth or at least the truth had found me. That was the good part.
After attending a few memorials and occasional bible studies and attending some meetings my understanding of what the witnesses believed and taught increased but so did my questions, and when on that sunday i heard the speaker redefine the generation that would not pass away i felt uneasy, and, yes, guilty. Who was i to question what these people teach, i was lost until they found me and clothed me with knowledge of the truth. Was i backsliding was i looking for a way out, was my faith false, was i a goat and not the sheep i thought i was going to be?
Nevertheless, i found that i could not just trust what they said and it was then that i started to search for history on the WT Org and then i discovered Roberts site, and i found an explanation for what i had experienced.
Unfortunatley at that time Roberts site was flooded with people who i now understand had not arrived there for comfort but to to challenge basic bible teachings, Robert had to act to enable his message to Jehovahs witnesses to be heard clearly, i suppose i was collatoral damage and i neede time out to find my spiritual feet again.
still today i cannot say i agree or probably more the case i do not as yet fully understand everything Robert says and publishes, but i respect his dedication to declare the truth to Gods household who are blinded by the 1914 lie.
i don't know where i stand in Gods plan for his people or even if i am privilidged to be a part of it, all i truly know is that i am a sinner, i need Christ for salvation, i need His kingdom for rulership, and i desire eternal life on a paradise earth for me and my loved ones.
I've been a baptized JW for 6 years. I love "the truth" and learning and the Bible and especially the person of Jehovah. However I quickly realized I would have trouble since I insisted on proof (from the Bible mind you...) and resisted the urge to join the power cliques.
I started to realize that there were essentially two types of people in the kingdom halls: Those searching and Lifers. The Lifers require little proof and they support the hierarchy and love ritual style worship. The only word that truly fits them is "brainwashed." They are only interested in what they are told to be interested in.
I really don't say this to be unkind. In general they seem to have put all their faith in the lemming in front of them. It truly frightens me. They have simply chosen to stop learning.
The Searchers are searching (thus the name). They keep searching.
What lead me here and to Mr. King's book was a website I stumbled on that had such a vitriolic rant against Mr. King and his alternate interpretation of prophecy that it made him sound worse than Satan himself. Really, it was wildly over the top. I had to find out who he was, if just to protect myself from Satan's twin by at least being aware of him.
The book "Jehovah himself is King" really confirmed my suspicions about 1914, the advancement and constant promotion of a hierarchy of men who seemed to have gained parity (if not supremacy) over Jesus and Jehovah themselves, and the marriage to the tacit infallibility of The GB at the cost of thousands of other anointed individuals who the WTBTS seems to suggest are either lying or inconsequential. A power play if I ever saw one.
The book was/is terrific and I finished it in three days. I am now reading it again and it has renewed my interest in rereading the prophets books in the old testament.
Mr. King you are to be congratulated for your insistence on being helpful to others even at great cost to yourself. I thank Jehovah for your wisdom everyday.Thank you for providing balanced information from the Bible and a forum for open discussion among people who love Jehovah. I have brought several people to the truth myself and I have shown them the book and the information it contains and they are so pleased with it.
Many, many individuals KNOW something is wrong in the congregations (or so I have discovered). I used to joke that the feet of the statue in Daniel represent the immovable and unreasonable leadership in the organization and the individuals who are searching for the truth, wherever it leads (This is a joke, I do not in fact believe this).
It has been very encouraging to read the stories of the individuals who visit this site and apply this information. I do not keep my beliefs a secret, so I'm sure I will eventually be expelled from the congregation, but I am beginning to believe that this is going to be necessary. I cannot think of how else to stand up for truth.
If anyone has advice for me about this I'm glad to hear it. The information they "learn" each week is so elementary and tedious that I'm convinced that the forces at work are purposefully keeping them on "milk" and denying them solid food. It's surreal, but what is to be expected this close to the end?
Thank you for reading this. I hope and pray for you all that we draw closer to Jehovah and become apart of his purpose.
Take Are Everyone!
Hello everyone......love to see more and more brothers and sisters are opening their eyes.....
Hello, fellow Beroeans.
I'm a long-time lurker who finally joined so that I can thank Robert for his occasional profound thoughts.
I can't reveal too much info about myself because I'm still an active publisher in good standing, although I'm a low hour publisher.
I love Jehovah and Jesus dearly, and I am staying in the congregation because I believe that is what Jehovah wants me to do at this time.
I am a sister, and I have a handful of sisters that I am mentoring to help them endure faithfully to the end.
Let the will of Jehovah take place.
hello everyone. I have been studying with Jehovah's people off and on for over 30 years and have never been baptized. I do think of you all as brothers and sisters but, the love I felt in the beginning sort of waned with the whole shunning of people who obviously needed our help and compassion, protection of pedophiles and 1914 malarchy. I finally heard the real truth about 7 months ago from a sister (whom I could never possibly repay) and have been reading and building a true appreciation for Jehovah and his promises, now the yoke is much lighter and kinder . By the way that is my real name I just figured for me it was in for a penny in for a pound. xoxo
I am in the UK and currently studying with the Jehovah's Witnesses and Mr King was kind enough to answer some questions I sent him in his latest podcast. Thank you Mr King.
I really do enjoy associating with and studying with the Witnesses but I also enjoy listening to Mr King's podcasts. I am confused by some of the Watchtower teachings, such as the 1914 and 1919 stuff.
Just; purchased and received Mr King's new book which I am going to read with great interest,
Just wanted you to know that another lurker has showed up and is lurking.
Nothing profound to add at this time.
Hi everyone. Since I'm still active in the congregation I'm using my longtime username Barry.
I grew up in the truth, but at the age of 12 my parents got problems in their marriage. This resulted in gradually skipping more and more meetings and becoming inactive.
When I was about 18 I decided to start going back regular and start again in the ministry. At that time I was studying chemistry which helped me to build my faith in Jehovah. I could see how all is working so perfectly together that it is impossible to have no creator.
I got baptized at age of 20. I got married several years later. In 2002 my wife was having issues with depression and couldn't visit meetings for some time. We got very little support from the congregation although we had been very active.
At some point in 2002 I stumbled on the e-watchman website. First couple of times, I just closed the browser because I didn't want to have anything to do with apostates. But somehow I was curious and started reading. This changed a lot in my life. Because of the situation in our life I was also getting disappointed by the lack of support. But reading about 1914 and so much more, answered so many questions I had.
Sadly several years later my wife left me and some time later I met someone not in the truth. I got disfellowshipped for about 1.5 year, during which I got married again. After my re-instatement we moved to Canada.
In the first congregations I visited I had similar experiences as I had before. Very little support.
Now I'm in a rather good congregation. There is much love and it helps me to stay active. Still I'm happy to know all of these truths about the truth which help me to stay balanced. I hope that some day I would be able to help some friends in the congregation when they need it.
I kindly request everyone those losing faith must read Jehovah Himself has become King book or at-least visit e-watchman's website. I too was loosing faith but it was Robert King who helped to to restore faith once again on Jehovah and Jesus.
Hi Brothers and Sisters
The four of us are in a tiny country town in country-side Australia. We're 3 hours from the city and about 30 minutes from the KH. Yes there's kangaroos and koalas along the way.
Between us we have about 100 years experience with the TRUTH.
My wife was a full-time pioneer for almost 17 years. We've been at our current KH for 3 years. With the surrounding towns there is about 80 publishers in the congregation. Our 2 kids are about 15 years of age and there is 8-10 kids a similar age.
When we first arrived a couple invited us for a meal and we have had 3-4 social occasions at our house.
Since then we feel we have been shunned.
Until about 6 weeks ago we were regular at meetings, field service, cart witnessing.
I had some long-standing questions regarding the way the organization was going. Most meetings now seemed to be about in-house procedure, management and administration. I couldn't agree with the 'new light' adjustments and the to push adore the governing body. They had become tele-evangelists. When they began replacing Jehovah's name with the blue JW logo out the front of the KHs that was the final straw.
We had watched the Australian Royal Commission “The experience of survivors of child sexual abuse within the Jehovah’s Witnesses Church in Australia” live on TV in 2015. We saw the Australia Branch leaders lie on TV. We saw GJ of the Governing Body lie on TV and later retract statements made under oath.
We were shaken. The question was how far down the line does this corruption go? Were the local elders naive and innocent or complicit
Then 4 weeks ago we see Robert King's book. I downloaded it and read it in a few days. So did my wife. Friends in our town did too. The TRUTH was now really the TRUTH. It is literally all we talk about. Like when they say you should lock up a person for a few weeks who has just realized the 'truth'. They just wont shut up about it.
We've now watched most of the videos, podcasts and everything else on the site and keep up with the daily text hoping to see a new one each day. And we just love all the comments. We have been using the material in our new weekly bible reading and bookstudy with the aforementioned friends. There is as much (now corrected) information and material as was on Jwdotorg. We want you all to know that like us there are many many silently watching and waiting and perhaps nervous to join in as yet (Ec 11:6). So please keep this awesome site going Brother Robert 🙂
Matthew 13:16,17 “However, happy are your eyes because they see and your ears because they hear. For truly I say to you, many prophets and righteous men desired to see the things you are observing but did not see them and to hear the things you are hearing but did not hear them.”
Hello fellow watchers, great to join you from Australia.
So glad to have found you all and experience a spiritual resurrection, hence the name Tabitha.
I was raised in the truth by my mother who got the truth in 1969 when I was just 5. Dad was quite opposed, but my mum faithfully never missed a meeting or field service, setting a wonderful example for me and my brother and sister.
Growing up in the truth for me was a real blessing, I always felt loved and cared for by those in our congregation and was truly taken in by families who wanted to look after the fatherlesss boys and girls in their midst, what a protection it was. With my mothers' fine example as well as that of many others in the congregation, I grew up developing a real love of Jehovah and an unstoppable desire to serve him no matter what.
At age 18 I was baptised and began pioneering immediately. My dad by this time had mellowed in his opposition although he remained disinterested. My mother noticed however that he spoke proudly of his two daughters and their conduct (my brother stopped coming to meetings at age 17 along with most of the other young boys in the congregation) compared to the daughters of dad's fellow workers. After pioneering for 5 years in my local territory, my sister and I (she had just started pioneering also) decided to move to the eastern states of Australia to serve where the need was great.
This was a fantastic experience for my sister and I. Jehovah really supported us in everything, finding work to support ourselves, somewhere to live and even another pioneer sister to share accommodation with, which proved to be a real blessing for us as inexperienced first time away from homers. The ministry was fabulous and the congregation stepped up and became our loving family once again. I spent 8 years pioneering in that territory and enjoyed so many amazing experiences that I will never forget. I spent another couple of years pioneering closer back to home where I met my husband.
Fast forward 16 years and we are here, reading "Jehovah Himself has become King", from a site that a few short months ago I would have branded as apostate. What happened? My two beautiful children never got to experience the upbringing I had, it was lost somehow, it's wasn't the same. The rules got in the way, they took away all the fun, the get togethers were gone, gone was the fun and laughs as well as the feeling of family. Don't get me wrong, I still love Jehovah, how can you not? But I don't feel the same way going to the meetings any more, it just feels like it's all gone flat.
But the last 4 weeks we have been quietly looking at this site, reading the posts and comments, watching the videos and I'm up to chapter 22 in the book. I can only say that I haven't felt so excited about Bible reading in a very long time. My joy is back and that goes for the rest of the family.
But now, oh dear, my mother at 80 years of age is still as zealous as ever and joined in the truth at last by my father after being a spiritual widow for 35 years. What now? We shall see....
I am using my name as I am no longer afraid of a wicked organization whom I loved and cherished and gave my all too as everyone here has. To Robert King: I have found in you my spiritual brother. I could not help but go through my notes in my bible and marvel at how you and I had read the same conclusions in the "minor prophets"!! Jehovah has indeed gathered us all and drawn us to him him as Jesus said. I really want to weekly meet with my brothers and sisters here as it is important to worship with spirit and truth. However this cannot be done alone. It is without a shadow of a doubt that Jesus came to do away with organized religion. Indeed as the angel says: get out of her if you do not want to share... The WTBTS has been exposed and I am thankful that Jehovah's spirit guided me to this site. May Jehovah and Jesus bless us all. And may he protect those still trapped in his "house" from those "offspring of vipers" who "cleanse the outside of the bowl..."
Thank you again Robert. I hope we can chat as I would love to share some insights I have gathered.
Warm Christian love,
Hi from Ireland everybody.....
Thank you Brother King for all your time and effort for your book and website........
You have really given me hope and strangely hope in Jehovah's earthly organization, to know that it has been infiltrated by Satan and not that of honested hearted brother's, I'm sure when the proverbials hit the fan the honest hearted brothers will see the truth that you have been talking about and there will be a split from the organization.....
May all of us here deepen our knowledge to help all our honest hearted brothers whom have been deluded when the veil finally comes down.......
Hello brothers and sisters,
I have been a JW since 2009 and I cannot express my joy to have learned the truth about our Creator.
I am currently as most of you facing difficulties because of the 1914 and every-time the subject comes up in the KH, it makes me uncomfortable.
However, ever since I came upon this site is a little better and I am happy to know I am not alone.
I know that the times ahead will be difficult but knowing you guys are out there is encouraging to me.
I am happy serving Jehovah and trying my best to help my brothers and sisters at the hall. There are a lot of elderly brothers and sisters in my hall, and they have a lot of knowledge, but many are sick with cancer and other chronic illnesses.
It is difficult to see so much pain but I know Jehovah will put an end to this soon.
I was a catholic and my whole family is catholic. I am the only witness, and my husband goes to the meetings sometimes. He is very open and beliefs a lot of things we teach. Still I suffer for my parents and other relatives because of all their doings that offend Jehovah. I really don't know what to do at this point and I have given up trying to wake them up.
I hope they have a chance before this whole comes down.
I am still very happy that Jehovah lead me to Him and that I accepted Him as my God and His Son as the Messiah and Lord over me.
Stay strong brothers and sisters.
