You will be hated on account of my name

Jehovah’s Witnesses are all about the future. Surviving the violent end of this wicked world and living forever in paradise on earth is a compelling vision —a valid hope, solidly based upon the Sacred Scriptures. Indeed, let your Kingdom come! When Jesus walked the earth he was keenly interested in the future. He was aware of what was written in the Hebrew prophets and Psalms. He [...]

You will hear a word behind you

Tuesday, December 22 [You] will hear a word behind you saying, “This is the way. Walk in it.” —Isa. 30:21. True, we do not hear God speak to us from heaven. He has, however, provided his written Word, the Bible, in which he gives us instruction. Additionally, Jehovah’s spirit moves “the faithful steward” to keep giving His servants their food supply. (Luke 12:42) What an abundance of [...]

Who has stood in the inner circle of Jehovah?

Monday, September 21 Jehovah your God you should fear, him you should serve, to him you should cling. —Deut. 10:20. The Bible accounts about the disobedience of Cain, Solomon, and the Israelites at Mount Sinai have a noteworthy element in common. These individuals had opportunity to “repent . . . and turn around.” (Acts 3:19) Clearly, Jehovah is not quick to give up on those who take a [...]

The operation of Satan —lying signs and wonders

Wednesday, July 29 You are from your father the Devil, . . . a liar and the father of the lie. —John 8:44. Whether called pastors, priests, rabbis, swamis, or by some other title, religious leaders abound in the world today. Like their first-century counterparts, they are “suppressing the truth” from God’s Word and have “exchanged the truth of God for the lie.” (Rom. 1:18, 25) They promote such [...]

No weapon formed against you will have any success?

Thursday, July 9 I will fortify you, yes, I will help you. —Isa. 41:10. Isaiah had already described how Jehovah would fortify, or strengthen, his people, saying: “Jehovah will come with power, and his arm will rule for him.” (Isa. 40:10) The Bible often uses the word “arm” symbolically to signify power. So the statement that Jehovah’s “arm will rule” reminds us that Jehovah is a powerful King. [...]

Friday, June 26 The hour is coming when everyone who kills you will think he has offered a sacred service to God. —John 16:2. That warning was true of those who murdered the disciple Stephen, and it has been true of others like them. (Acts 6:8, 12; 7:54-60) How ironic that in committing such evil crimes as murder, religious fanatics violate the very laws of the One whom [...]

Covid 19 and the Machinations of Satan

2020-05-09T18:54:40-04:00May 9th, 2020|Mailbag|

Do you see CV19 as a machination of Satan to slow the preaching work, or, as Jehovah causing what the Watchtower deserves? The lockdown has impacted Jehovah’s Witnesses, that is for sure. A couple of months ago who would have imagined that the Watchtower would shutter every kingdom hall, cancel assemblies and the summer conventions and cease the public ministry? But unless something unexpected happens in [...]

Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Locusts of Joel

2020-08-24T09:18:26-04:00January 22nd, 2020|Bulletins|

KINGDOM BULLETIN #16 I recently watched the 2019 Annual Meeting presentation on JW Broadcast. I was especially interested in the part presented by David Splane on the Watchtower’s adjusted understanding of Joel. My interest had been piqued months earlier as a result of rumors circulating on the Internet to the effect that the Governing Body no longer considered Jehovah’s Witnesses to be symbolized by the [...]

Taking hold of the robe of a Jew

2019-11-14T13:54:03-05:00November 13th, 2019|WT Review|

This article appears in the WatchTower Review section I have said it before. It bears repeating. Most everything the Watchtower teaches as regards doctrine is true. Conversely, most everything the Watchtower teaches as the modern fulfillment of prophecy is false. The reason for the disconnect is itself foretold in prophecy. The simple truth is, Jehovah’s Witnesses are under a powerful deluding influence. As the apostle revealed [...]

Are Jehovah’s Witnesses misled?

2020-09-13T06:59:49-04:00August 22nd, 2019|Mailbag|

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 [...]
