Using only the Bible can anyone prove that Jesus appointed the Watchtower Society in 1919?

March 15, 1990 Watchtower

Paragraph 21

***‘The Faithful Slave’ and Its Governing Body ***

In 1918, when Jesus Christ inspected those claiming to be his slaves, he found an international group of Christians publishing Bible truths for use both inside the congregation and outside in the preaching work. In 1919 it truly turned out to be as Christ had foretold:“Happy is that slave if his master on arriving finds him doing so. Truly I say to you, He will appoint him over all his belongings.”(Matthew 24:46, 47) These true Christians entered into the joy of their Master. Having shown themselves “faithful over a few things,” they were appointed by the Master to be “over many things.”(Matthew 25:21) The faithful slave and its Governing Body were in place, ready for a widened assignment. How glad we should be that this was so, for loyal Christians are richly benefiting from the devoted work of the faithful slave and its Governing Body!

The "bible truths" of 1919 are the not the "bible truths" of 2013.The "Finished Mystery" is but a serious embarassment for modern JW's.It MUST be salvaged because IT was the REASON for the IMPRISONMENT OF THE GB.It is FOR this reason alone that IT stands.For it declares Jesus is THE ALMIGHTY,the pope is Michael,Apollylon is the devil,SATAN.Levithan is a steam locomotive and Russell expounds on the traditional shape of the cross,AND MANY MANY False time limited statements.The fact that the present teaching is that APOLLYAN is JESUS at REV 9:11,should make one sceptical of any reward except that of a false teacher.

You're right.

i forgot about the new "new light' that the Governing Body acts as the FDS when its members assemble together.

I guess that leaves Charlie Russell SOL.

Exactly HOW did the Watchtower Society get this exact information about what Jesus was doing in heaven? Did Jesus himself tell the Watchtower what he was doing? Did Jesus tell all the churches that he was inspecting them? Since the Watchtower insists that it is not inspired of God to write anything, exactly where did they get this stuff?

The truth is, it's ALL A LIE!!! None of it was true then and it most certainly isn't true now. Jehovah's Witnesses really should be the most embarrassed people of all modern religions. Only fools could accept such nonsense with no divine backing whatsoever. Their trust and faith is implicitly in the men who direct the Watchtower's religion.

The Watchtower Society has developed a very clever and systematic 'Bible' Study program to instill the fear of being detroyed forever into a prospective member's mind.

Once they have bought into the lie of annihilation they are so afraid that getting them to believe the rest of the satanic doctrines is easy and they will follow the false prophets of the Watchtower Society until the day they die.

so what the WT is saying is that CTR was not anointed as, John the Baptist wasn't either. They really put him on the back burner.

They cant prove it at all because its not biblical. I asked this quiestion on another thread made by truthsetsfree and they never asnwered because its a flase teaching of men and not from God.

The closest they have to an answer is that they were arrested and some of the members of bethel rebelled because of the direction Rutherford was trying to take the society after Charles death. Rutherford was taking control and he used his background of law to screw people and thats why they left. There is no biblical evidence to back up the actual dates.

All we know is there will be a cleansing of the temple which is in malachi. But we do not know when or if it has happened.

Concur :)

Rutherford overruled CTR's wishes of a GB rather than ONE head honcho, Rutherford kicked the anticipated GB members out that have a nice web site at http://www.dawnbible.com/dawnpub.htm

At least these guys at Dawn publication did not continue down the road of pure speculation of further changes to the good news like the 1935 changed to a "mortal - eternal" earthly class living in an entropic universe where animal, plant life and solar systems continue to die eternally. So much for corruption being transformed to Incorruption !!!!

Shalom :)

when i was figuring all this stuff out, i invited an elder friend of mine over to discuss the red rev book pages 166 or so, about how rutherford and his gang were the two witnesses of rev 11 during the great tribulation of 1260 days x two right before armageddon.

i asked him how could rutherford's group could be the TWO WITNESSES, if the tribulation hasn't happened yet and the anti christ isn't in full power yet ruling as the 8th king?

that was it..... he slammed the book shut jumped up out of the chair screaming ITS THE TRUTH ITS THE TRUTH, as he made a bee line for the door and left.......3 days later i was disfellowshipped for APOSTACY.

...... i never even went to the committee meeting, cause i already knew about the kangaroo court.

He had to convince himself he had the truth by screaming (they are now told to put their fingers in their ears, when apostates talk) as he realized you were right :)

I was shunned over 20 years ago by a JW work colleague and friend after I told him I doubted the 1914 chronology and the one generation teaching....I always wonder what he taught when the org. dropped the usual 1914 one generation message from the Awake magazine inside page, in late 90s, when they realized it was no longer defendable and Absolutaley a false doctrine !!!!!

Shalom friend your took one for truth ;)
