When Will Jehovah’s Witnesses Go into Captivity to Babylon the Great?

This article appears in WT Review category At the October, 2015, Annual Meeting of Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Governing Body put forward yet another revision, in what has become an annual, piecemeal revision of prophetic interpretation.

Will Christendom survive the end of the Watchtower?

QUESTION: Having read your website since 2010, now I can grasp the real meaning of prophecies. It is said at Daniel:11:41: “He will also enter into the land of the Decoration, and many lands will be made to stumble. But these are the ones that will escape out of his hand: Edom and Moab and [...]

How can Babylon the Great be related to the king of the North?

QUESTION:  In your book Jehovah Himself Has Become King, in the chapter on Revelation, you wrote: "Contrary to presently prevailing assumptions, Jehovah’s Witnesses have not gotten out of Babylon the Great. That is because Jehovah’s Witnesses have not even gone into exile yet! Babylon the Great is yet to conquer Jehovah’s people. That will come about as [...]

The Coming Rise & Fall of Babylon

_______   The sudden overthrow of Babylon stunned the ancient world. The event is one of the centerpieces of Bible prophecy, having been foretold by Isaiah, Jeremiah and Daniel - the reason being, Babylon had been an unwitting instrument in the hand of Jehovah to smash all the nations surrounding, including the kingdom [...]

A Closer Look @ 1914

Jehovah’s Witnesses have been taught and whole-heartedly believe that the sign of Christ’s parousia has been evident since 1914. In fact, according to the Watchtower 1914 is the most important date in all human history. But in spite of the belief that Jesus Christ has been invisibly present in some fashion for over a century now, [...]

When Does Babylon Fall?

Predicting the future is humanly impossible. Inarguably, no uninspired prophet or priest; no psychic, clairvoyant or fortune-teller; no analytic prognosticator, nor any computer-generated model can unerringly predict events to come. Peering into the future is the sole domain of God. (2005) In order to establish that fact, nearly three thousand years ago Jehovah God issued [...]
