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 exists among Jehovah’s Witnesses too. The Watchtower has skillfully cultivated the expectation that the organization is going to march on to greater and greater glory. How can it fail when Jehovah is leading the way?
The Watchtower’s 2022 online “convention” theme—“Pursue Peace”—reinforces that expectation. The prevailing attitude projected by the leadership appears to be the fulfillment of Jeremiah’s prophecy regarding the prophets and priests of whom Jehovah says: “For from the least to the greatest, each one is making dishonest gain; from the prophet to the priest, each one is practicing fraud. And they try to heal the breakdown of the daughter of my people lightly, saying, “There is peace! There is peace!” When there is no peace.” — Jeremiah 8:11
Jesus foretold a complete and utter breakdown among those who profess to be Christians. Among other things, during the time of the end Christ foretold these shocking developments: “Then, too, many will be stumbled and will betray one another and will hate one another. Many false prophets will arise and mislead many; and because of the increasing of lawlessness, the love of the greater number will grow cold.” — Mathew 24:10-12
The “increasing of lawlessness” has nothing to do with crime stats. Lawlessness relates to hypocrisy on the part of those who claim to reverence God. The increasing of lawlessness is evident among the “prophets” and “priests” of Bethel, whose latest “dishonest gain” and fraud is being perpetrated against every congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses, who by the express order of the Watchtower are no longer allowed to maintain a Kingdom Hall operating fund to cover expenses.
Besides the fact that hundreds of congregations have already been evicted from the Kingdom Halls they built and dedicated to Jehovah, now the lords of the house of God, otherwise known as Bethel, have instructed the elders to close their congregation’s bank accounts and forward all monies to the Kingdom treasury. If the local congregations need money for repairs or whatever, they will have to ask for it—like children asking for an allowance.
No doubt the Wall Street business consultants who are advising the Watchtower have explained to them how they can maximize profit by pooling the accounts from the tens of thousands of congregation operating funds. You can almost hear those financial advisers pointing out to the fraudsters at Bethel that the millions of dollars parked in cash hither and yon accrue hardly any interest these days, whereas investing the money with Wall Street pros can turn double-digit profits. Hey, it is all for the Kingdom. What could possibly go wrong? Hopefully, they will at least hedge their billions into some short positions as the crack-up boom phase of the money orgy turns into a long-overdue epic crash.
In view of the impending collapse of the system and the inevitable utter breakdown of spirit among those who worshipfully follow the Governing Body, the stage is set. Now consider the 12th Psalm of David: “Save me, O Jehovah, for the loyal one is no more; faithful people have vanished from among men. They speak lies to one another; they flatter with their lips and speak with deceitful hearts.”
We should not suppose that “faithful people” applies to anyone other than those who at one time were loyal and faithful to Jehovah. Indeed, how is it possible for a person to be considered loyal or faithful if they have no standing with God in the first place? Who would they have been loyal to if not God?
Given the unfaithfulness that has been displayed on the part of the Governing Body already—exhibited most recently by their forceful vaccination mandate and their deceitfully implying that Jehovah had secretly intimated to Bethel’s high priests that the mRNA injections have come from the same heavenly source as the manna Jehovah once provided for the Israelites in the wilderness—the scripture is fulfilled: “faithful people have vanished from among men.”
“Jehovah will cut off all flattering lips and the tongue that makes great boasts, those who say: “We will prevail with our tongues. We use our lips as we please; who will be our master?”
Have not the men you speak for the Watchtower made great boasts? They claim to preside over a spiritual paradise where no evil exists.
Stephen Lett might be considered the spokesman for the body of boasters. He once snarled before the morning worship camera: “Nobody cares for children like Jehovah’s organization.” Really? Surely, Mr. Lett is aware of the database of 23,000 known pedophiles and the millions of dollars Bethel has paid out in lawyers’ fees and out-of-court settlements. Why pretend Jehovah is not aware of the thousands of children who have been raped and molested under their guardianship? Or in their arrogance, do they suppose Jehovah has no concern for children?
It is obvious that the leadership of the Watchtower imagines they will prevail with their tongues. All they have to do is just keep talking. Who will ever call them to account?
“Because the afflicted are oppressed, because of the sighing of the poor, I will rise up to act,” says Jehovah. “I will save them from those who treat them with contempt.”
The Governing Body considers themselves to be the “masters” and all of the rank and file followers are “learners.” (See article: The Masters and the Learners ) There is nothing any lowly publisher or even elder can do to change anything. The contempt of the masters was on full display in the Governing Body’s JW Broadcast Updates over the course of the summer of 2021, when JW’s were berated for believing conspiracy theories about the dangers of the experimental injections and elders who dared voice any opinion at variance with the GB were contemptuously cast as being disloyal to Jehovah and threatened with judicial action if they didn’t shut up.
I have no doubt that the stage is now set for Jehovah to rise up and act. That is what the coming of Christ to the temple is all about. We shall see how the talkers are able to hold up against the long sword that protrudes from Christ’s mouth. Spoiler: “Now I will rise up,” says Jehovah, “Now I will exalt myself; now I will magnify myself. You conceive dried grass and give birth to stubble. Your own spirit will consume you like a fire. And peoples will become as the burnings of lime. As thorns cut down, they will be set ablaze with fire. You who are far away, listen to what I will do! And you who are nearby, acknowledge my might! The sinners in Zion are in dread; trembling has seized the apostates: ‘Who of us can live where there is a consuming fire? Who of us can live with unquenchable flames?’” — Isaiah 33:10-14
The Watchtower has taught the basic truths that had been hidden and twisted by Christendom’s churches. Even so, Jehovah has allowed Satan a seat at the table, so-to-speak; even as the apostle of Christ, one Judas Iscariot, sat at the Passover table with Jesus and the eleven. According to the Christian prophet, Paul, the Devil is allowed to exert a deluding influence over those who know the basic truth in order to test their love of the truth. Let the test begin!
Faithful people may vanish and loyal ones may turn into betrayers, but God remains true. God’s word is like refined silver—precious, enduring, dependable. So, let the wicked have their day. Let them say whatever they wish. Just remember, Jehovah gets the last word.
“The sayings of Jehovah are pure; they are like silver refined in an earthen furnace, purified seven times. You will guard them, O Jehovah; you will protect each one of them from this generation forever. The wicked walk around unrestrained because the sons of men promote depravity.”
