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 the main part of the Ammonites.” I understand that the land of the Decoration = Christian Congregation, and from your insight I have learned that Edom, Moab and Ammon were relatives of Israel through Esau and Lot. Does it mean that other Christian denominations will escape for a brief period of time and finally be destroyed in Daniel 12:1: “During that time Michael will stand up, the great prince who is standing in behalf of your people.” If my understanding is wrong at this point please correct me. Please, what does this actually mean?
ANSWER: That is the exact point and intent of the prophecy. Taking it a step further, it harmonizes with the numerous prophecies that call for God’s “nation” to go into exile in Babylon, or Babylon the Great.
Basically, the Watchtower is intent on obscuring these matters and muddying the waters. Other than running the worldwide evangelization of Jehovah’s Witnesses, secondarily it seems the Society’s focus is on rendering prophecy into meaninglessness.
Whereas, they know full well the relationship Moab, Ammon and Edom had with Israel and the prophetic value of that relationship, and obviously the literal nations of Moab, Ammon and Edom no longer exist and certainly do not exist during the “time of the end,” still, the Watchtower does not offer Jehovah’s Witnesses so much as one comment of explanation as to what those three nations now symbolize or how they may have escaped being subjected to the now non-existent Soviet Union.
Even at this late date, as London, with the help of its American dumb giant, light fires across the globe in a scheme to ignite a world conflagration, the Watchtower is still clueless as to even the identity of the king of the north – let alone, Edom, Moab and Ammon. And Jehovah’s Witnesses have been exhorted to not even think about it. It is wise not to speculate, “mother” warns. Jehovah’s Witnesses are told ad nauseam that the only thing on the upcoming prophetic calendar scheduled for fulfillment is the sudden destruction of organized religion by the United Nations. And, of course, Jehovah’s Witnesses unquestionably accept that to be true. They have no choice. To question the Watchtower is tantamount to questioning Almighty God himself.
But we may expect at some point in the next few months for the conflagration to occur. The British system — that is to say, the global financial system, is reaching another bursting point. Already the Russians and Chinese are finalizing their agreements to set up a new system. The intent of the keepers of the empire is to blow the world up before the financial system implodes or before a replacement system becomes operational.
In the event of war and financial collapse, martial law is a certainty. Just as in the other world wars the Watchtower Society will come under scrutiny for their antiwar stance. And without access to their funds the Society will most certainly cease to function as a publishing concern. And let’s face it, when the world blows up and instead of Christendom going down the Watchtower does, whatever is left of the Watchtower will have zero credibility anyway.
But in his mercy Jehovah will redeem those whose faith survives the coming crash. God will perform a repurchase of his people. And he will forgive in a large way. Then God will turn his attention to those who joyfully plundered his people; specifically, that which is represented by Edom, Moab and Ammon (Christendom) will be judged by God and annihilated by the king of the north when he goes forth in his great rage.
