“After the tribulation in those days” – Then What?

2024-05-20T08:05:37-04:00February 3rd, 2023|Micah|

In the previous article in this series on Micah, the concluding comments made the case that divine intervention will be necessary to save mankind from extinction. What else could Jesus have been referring to except nuclear war when he warned that the great tribulation would be so severe that no flesh would be saved unless God cut it short? Jesus also spoke of a post-tribulation [...]

Psalms #28- Bringing salvation to his anointed one

2022-12-27T13:38:51-05:00December 25th, 2022|Psalms|

Most Christians presently living in the Western world---otherwise known as the realm of Christendom---have not really faced persecution. Here in America, the last episode of persecution was back in the 1930s and 40s. But even then it was rather localized and the federal government actually protected the rights of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Numerous Supreme Court decisions were handed down in favor of Jehovah’s Witnesses.  Rather than out-in-the-open, [...]

Trust Jehovah or trust the brothers – which will you choose?

2022-11-14T11:21:23-05:00November 13th, 2022|WT Review|

This is a review of Watchtower study article #37 2022, entitled: You Can Trust Your Brothers  1. PEOPLE in Satan’s world do not know whom they can trust. They are constantly disappointed by the conduct of commercial, political, and religious leaders. That feeling extends to friends, neighbors, and even family members. This should not surprise us. The Bible foretold: “In the last days . . [...]

I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied

2022-11-06T19:00:53-05:00November 6th, 2022|Jeremiah|

“I did not send the prophets, yet they ran. I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied.” — Jeremiah 23:21 Who are God’s people? According to God’s own declaration His people, whom he likens to a flock of sheep, have been entrusted to the care of earthly shepherds. At the time Jeremiah issued Jehovah’s denunciations the Jews were God’s exclusive people and the city of [...]

Psalms #23 – Jehovah is my Shepherd

2022-10-11T11:06:21-04:00October 10th, 2022|Psalms|

The 23rd Psalm is probably the most popular and beloved Psalm in the entire collection. Its simplicity and imagery are very moving. Too bad the translators of the original English translations did not see fit to use God’s personal name like the Hebrew in which it was composed. “Jehovah is my shepherd” is even more personal and impactful.  David, of course, was a shepherd boy. He [...]

Psalms #20 – May Jehovah answer you in the day of distress

2022-09-27T06:29:03-04:00September 25th, 2022|Psalms|

The Hebrew Scriptures do not have very much to say about Satan, but Jesus sure did. It was appropriate that the promised “seed” of the woman should shed light upon the enigmatic, talking serpent of Eden. The enmity about which Jehovah spoke in the garden of Eden burst out on the world’s stage when Jesus was baptized. Immediately after being anointed by God, the holy spirit [...]

Psalms #12 – The sayings of Jehovah are pure like refined silver

2022-08-24T12:56:42-04:00August 24th, 2022|Psalms|

There is a general expectation among people in the world, especially in the so-called “developed nations,” that conditions of life will continually improve—that the next generation will be better than the one before. That is the way it was been for many generations. Except now that is no longer the case. Civilization is coming unglued. What is more, it is being intentionally demolished.  The same mindset [...]

Psalms #2 – He will terrify them in his burning anger

2022-07-26T12:10:24-04:00July 24th, 2022|Psalms|

Who will rule the world? That is the paramount issue of the day. Will it be a bloc of allied nations such as is emerging in Asia presently, an alliance of Russia, China, India and Iran? Or, will the Anglo-dominated unipolar world prevail? Will there be a one-world government in the future? What does the Bible say? For hundreds of years, the message contained in the [...]

I will turn my hand against you

2022-05-08T10:00:58-04:00May 7th, 2022|WT Review|

This is a continuation in the series examining the July 2022 Watchtower. With the May 2022 JW Broadcast, the Governing Body has confirmed its unofficial policy that unity is paramount. Unity is more important than truth.  As long as everyone believes and embraces the same teaching, even if it is false, it is preferable to the alternative.  Sure, the best solution would be for the Watchtower [...]

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 [...]
