Frank I always enjoy your comments, but I did want to share that the Apostle Paul “a defender of the Good News” made us aware that the wicked would also share in the preaching work – which would in the end, result for the good of Jehovah’s purpose.
Phil 1:15 “True, some are preaching the Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. 16 The latter are proclaiming the Christ out of love, for they know that I have been appointed to defend the good news; 17 but the former do it out of contentiousness, not with a pure motive, for they are intending to create trouble for me in my prison bonds. 18 With what result? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is being proclaimed, and I rejoice over this. In fact, I will also keep on rejoicing, 19 for I know that this will result in my salvation through your supplication and with the support of the spirit of Jesus Christ.”Frank CongerParticipantMay 14, 2017 at 10:37 amPost count: 133
I was just pointing out that that particular preaching work mentioned by Christ in his prophecy had directly to do with the great crowd being taken out of the tribulation by ones who will then truly be enlightened. Yes, there are other times that Christians preach as well, but it is during the tribulation that the true knowledge will become abundant for those who are asleep currently. This does not account for all the preaching of Christians, but this good new being preached and then the end will come is specifically the preaching during the tribulation that will accompany Jesus coming on the clouds of heaven.

The preaching work of the WT is incomplete in almost every facet. But they did make a gallant attempt to provide a place of safe keeping for the Bride of Christ. We will all understand what we missed in our interpretations of God’s Word when the angels start preaching the true knowledge. That’s when we find out hou much we were wanting.
