What is the (Second) Coming of Christ?

2022-05-02T12:30:15-04:00May 1st, 2022|WT Review|

There is a snippet of an article appearing this week on the home page of JW dot org that poses the question: What is the Coming of Christ?  Long-time readers of e-Watchman likely realize this is my special field of interest and research. I have thoroughly examined the relevant scriptures on this fascinating topic, as well as the Watchtower’s teaching on the subject. So, let’s [...]

What is the sign of the last days?

2022-04-03T16:54:40-04:00April 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 [...]

So that they may come to believe the lie

Part three of Watchtower Review Under the subheading, WE LOVE THE TRUTH: 12) God’s people today do not claim to have perfect or complete knowledge of the truth. At times, they have made mistakes in doctrinal matters and in organizational direction. That should not surprise us. The Scriptures make it clear that accurate knowledge increases with time. (Col. 1:9, 10) Jehovah reveals the truth gradually, and we [...]

He stands in opposition and exalts himself

Question: In update number 9, the question was asked ‘Do you believe Jehovah is directing the organization?’ I know you’ve said that it is Jehovah’s organization, but do you feel he is still directing and are we seeing the scriptures being fulfilled, 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4? My feelings on update 9 is many in the congregations won’t have a problem with what’s being said as it’s [...]

The Watchtower and the disgusting thing

2021-10-13T17:59:24-04:00October 13th, 2021|Mailbag|

Since the WT has, it seems, become the mouthpiece of the scarlet colored wild beast, the disgusting thing that causes desolation, and the constant feature (the public ministry) has essentially been removed, are we not then actually seeing the fulfillment of Daniel 12:11. Are we not in the last days? Is not the disgusting thing standing in a holy place? Matt. 24:15. Jesus said when you [...]

This post is a reproduction of what was previously published as a brochure. in 2019. You may purchase copies of the brochure for distribution or download as a PDF. Unfortunately, I corrected about a half dozen typos that appear in the hard copy and PDF. (Too much work to fix them) THE APPROACHING HOUR OF TESTING Jehovah has always used [...]

From the Watchtower apostasy has spread

2021-09-03T20:03:56-04:00September 3rd, 2021|Commentary, Jeremiah|

Friday, September 3 The existing authorities stand placed in their relative positions by God. —Rom. 13:1. Do elders comply with secular laws about reporting an allegation of child abuse to the secular authorities? Yes. In places where such laws exist, elders endeavor to comply with secular laws about reporting allegations of abuse. Such laws do not conflict with God’s law. (Acts 5:28, 29) So when they learn of [...]

The unrighteous one knows no shame

2021-12-22T04:25:05-05:00August 7th, 2021|Commentary|

Saturday, August 7 We are not ignorant of [Satan’s] designs. —2 Cor. 2:11. Satan appeals to natural desires. We have a natural desire to learn skills that can help us provide for ourselves and our families. (1 Tim. 5:8) Often, we can gain those skills by attending school and being diligent students. But we must be cautious. The educational system in many countries teaches students not only practical skills but [...]
