The Visible Parousia of Jesus Christ

2019-09-29T23:30:00-04:00November 13th, 2009|Page Two|

When Jesus walked the earth during his brief three and a half year ministry he explained to his closest followers that although the Hebrew prophecies foretell that the Messiah would reign forever, and Jesus was indeed the appointed Messiah, or Christ, he must first 'go away.' But later he would return. The disciples did not immediately understand what Jesus was saying. But later they did.  Jesus’ [...]

Where is the Watchtower?

Has the Kingdom of God really begun ruling the world? Jehovah’s Witnesses will unhesitatingly respond that it has. And why shouldn’t they? As long as the Watchtower has existed, it has declared that the Kingdom of God has begun ruling. Every Watchtower Magazine is emblazoned with the subheading: “Announcing Jehovah’s Kingdom.” Most Jehovah’s Witnesses today are probably unaware that the publishers of the Watchtower originally proclaimed [...]

The ends of the systems of things have come

The apostle Paul used an expression that the New World Translation renders as “the ends of the systems of things.” One place where that expression appears in scripture is 1 Corinthians 10:11, which states: “Now these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for a warning to us upon whom the ends of the systems of things have come.” Whereas most translations render [...]

To the sons of light

With wars and rumors of wars growing louder, it is time to revisit the familiar prophecy of peace and security. That phrase has special relevance for millions of Jehovah’s Witnesses because it is believed that the fulfillment of their saying “peace and security” will be the precursor of the beginning of the great tribulation. As a refresher, the Watchtower has stated below as recently as 2019. [...]

Regarding Ruth Underwood

2024-04-12T16:47:09-04:00April 12th, 2024|Page One|

There are now some eight billion human souls on this planet. Jehovah God knows each and every one. He also knows those who are spiritually inclined and groping for the truth. They are most precious to him. Jesus said the Kingdom of God belongs to them.  Over the years, the Watchtower has related many experiences where householders had been praying for answers, and in a short [...]

When is the hour of test coming upon the world?

2024-04-06T08:38:47-04:00April 5th, 2024|WT Review|

This is the last article in the series examining the May, 2024 Watchtower. I am still trying to mentally process the Watchtower’s most recent “new light.” As stated in the previous article in this series, it is doubtful that Jehovah’s Witnesses will perceive that the Governing Body has repudiated everything it has ever taught regarding the urgency of getting out of Babylon the Great before God’s [...]

Priest and prophet go astray because of alcohol

2024-03-28T12:03:45-04:00March 28th, 2024|WT Review|

This is part six of the review of the May, 2024 Watchtower On his last sojourn to Jerusalem, Jesus stunned his apostles when he viewed the temple and said that no stone would be left standing upon a stone and not thrown down. After a few days, the apostles approached Jesus privately and asked for more details. They wanted to know when these things would befall [...]
