Are you saying you are a prophet?

2023-07-17T09:01:55-04:00July 17th, 2023|

The following is my response to an email from 2003 archived here. At the time I was an active JW and posted articles online anonymously. Article has been slightly edited.  In last week's mailbag, a questioner wrote:  "I can only wonder, why? Every essay I've read on this site either defies or directly challenges the teachings of this cult, or accuses them of wrongdoing. So why [...]

The good news will be preached first, and then the end will come

2023-04-01T11:17:51-04:00March 31st, 2023|Page Two|

Jehovah’s Witnesses have a unique message. It is the Bible’s message, otherwise called the gospel—the good news. The good news is that God has arranged for a new government—a global government---even a one-world government that will take complete control over the earth’s affairs. The government God intends to install—otherwise known as the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of the heavens—will be administered by God’s [...]

The Time of Jacob’s Trouble

2023-03-29T02:48:56-04:00March 28th, 2023|Jeremiah|

God has a purpose and Jehovah’s Witnesses are privileged to know it—at least the general outline of it; albeit, the immediate future is another matter, which is the subject of this article. Jehovah’s eternal purpose is as simple as it is profound. The divine purpose centers around Jesus. This is no revelation. Except, it goes beyond Christ. Jehovah has purposed to adopt 144,000 sons from among [...]

Keep Ready for Jehovah’s Day – Watchtower review.

2023-03-24T12:57:27-04:00March 23rd, 2023|WT Review|

The June 2023 Watchtower has an article entitled Keep Ready For Jehovah’s Day. The opening paragraph states an oft-repeated error: WHEN the Bible speaks of “Jehovah’s day,” it refers to the time when Jehovah judges his enemies and brings salvation to his people. In the past, Jehovah at times carried out judgments. (Isa. 13:1, 6; Ezek. 13:5; Zeph. 1:8) In our time, “Jehovah’s day” begins with the attack on [...]

Psalms #29 – Give Jehovah the glory due his name

2023-04-09T08:46:47-04:00December 28th, 2022|Psalms|

“Give Jehovah his due, you sons of mighty ones, give Jehovah his due for his glory and strength. Give Jehovah the glory due his name. Bow down to Jehovah in holy adornment.” What do you give to the man who has everything? That is an oft-used expression. Of course, there is no man (or woman) who has everything. True, some people may have more money [...]

Let us go up to the mountain of Jehovah

2022-12-15T18:24:44-05:00December 12th, 2022|Micah|

A continuation of the Micah series “In the final part of the days, the mountain of the house of Jehovah will become firmly established above the top of the mountains, and it will be raised up above the hills, and to it peoples will stream. And many nations will go and say: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of Jehovah and to the [...]

Hear this, you elders, and pay attention

2022-10-03T06:42:12-04:00May 3rd, 2022|WT Review|

This is a consideration of study article #29 — Support Our Overseer Jesus Jesus said the good news will be preached first in all the world and then the end will come. Christ also foretold that he would appoint a slave to provide food at the right time. Let us consider a few aspects of this important topic. Paragraph four states:  4. Jesus stated that the [...]

What is the sign of the last days?

2023-06-09T07:16:39-04:00April 3rd, 2022|WT Review|

jw.org has taken to posting brief articles with short bullet points on current topics. As I have done with the Watchtower Review column for many years this post will examine the validity of the article: What Is the Sign of “the Last Days,” or “End Times”? (The recycled article appearing on jw dot org has been reviewed before but what follows is more detailed.) What [...]

Whenever they are saying “peace and security”

2022-01-29T11:38:10-05:00January 29th, 2022|Page One|

JW Broadcast has uploaded a video entitled: Remain Watchful for “Peace and Security!” This topic has been considered and reconsidered on this site for many years; and of course, Jehovah’s Witnesses are frequently reminded of it in publications and discourses. To be sure, it is a compelling prophecy given the fact that God has provided a roadside marker, as it were, a signal to affirm the [...]

I am devising a scheme against you

2021-12-07T11:23:09-05:00December 7th, 2021|Jeremiah|

A continuation of the Jeremiah series. In the 18th chapter of Jeremiah Jehovah commanded his prophet to go to the workshop of a certain potter as he was working with a lump of clay on the potter’s wheel. The piece the potter was shaping became ruined and so he reworked it into a different shaped vessel. Jehovah then made a comparison, saying to Jeremiah: “‘Can I [...]
