Benefit From Tested Faith

If we have truly fled from Babylon the Great and have also come out of the world, let us not look at the things behind.

In line with the principle found at Luke 9:62, for any of us to look back could mean losing out on being a subject of God’s Kingdom. Jesus said:“No man that has put his hand to a plow and looks at the things behind is well fitted for the kingdom of God.”

But some who became Christians in the past have since then allowed themselves to be fashioned after this system of things. They have not resisted the spirit of the world.(2 Peter 2:20-22)

Worldly distractions have absorbed their interest and time, thus impeding their progress. Instead of keeping their minds and hearts fixed firmly on God’s Kingdom and his righteousness, putting such first in life, they have turned aside to pursue materialistic goals.

Unless they are moved to acknowledge their weak faith and lukewarm state and to change their course by seeking divine counsel, they are in danger of losing their precious relationship with Jehovah and his organization.(Revelation 3:15-19)

Our being found approved and in line for surviving the fast-approaching great tribulation depends on our keeping clean, having our robes ‘washed in the blood of the Lamb.’(Revelation 7:9-14; 1 Corinthians 6:11)

If we do not maintain a clean, righteous standing before God, our sacred service will not be acceptable. Surely, each one of us should realize that the tested quality of faith will help us to endure and to avoid incurring God’s displeasure.

At times, the news media and secular authorities pin false labels on God’s people, misrepresenting our Christian beliefs and way of life.

This should not surprise us, for Jesus clearly shows that the ‘world would hate us because we are no part of it.’(John 17:14)

Will we allow those who are blinded by Satan to intimidate and dishearten us and make us feel ashamed of the good news?

Will we permit lies about the truth to affect our regular meeting attendance and our preaching activity?

Or will we stand fast and be courageous and more determined than ever to continue declaring the truth about Jehovah and his Kingdom?

According to fulfilled Bible prophecy, we are now living deep in the time of the end. Our Bible-based expectations for a new world of righteousness are certain to become a delightful reality.

Until that day comes, may all of us exercise unshakable faith in God’s Word and prove our faith by not letting up in preaching the good news of the Kingdom worldwide.

Think of the thousands of new disciples being baptized every week. Is that not reason enough for us to appreciate that Jehovah’s patience regarding the execution of his judgment can result in the salvation of many more people?

Are we not joyful that God has allowed the lifesaving Kingdom-preaching activity to continue?

And are we not delighted that millions have accepted the truth and are demonstrating their faith?

How long the present testing of our faith will continue we cannot say.

But this much is certain: Jehovah has a fixed day of reckoning for the present wicked heavens and earth.

Meanwhile, let us be determined to imitate the sterling quality of tested faith manifested by the Perfecter of our faith, Jesus. And let us follow the example of the aging anointed remnant and that of others who are courageously serving among us.

We should be determined to declare without letup the everlasting good news to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people in cooperation with the angel flying in midheaven. Let them hear the angelic declaration:“Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of the judgment by him has arrived.”(Revelation 14:6, 7)

When that divine judgment is rendered, what will be the result as regards the tested quality of our faith? Will it not be a glorious triumph—deliverance from the present system of things into God’s righteous new world?

By enduring the tests of our faith, we will be able to say, as did the apostle John:“This is the conquest that has conquered the world, our faith.”—1 John 5:4.

Keep walking by spirit.—Gal. 5:16.

Does holy spirit operate only on special occasions or under extraordinary circumstances? No. God’s Word speaks of Christians’“walking by spirit,”“being led by spirit,” and “living by spirit.”(Gal. 5:18, 25)

These expressions indicate that holy spirit can continually exercise an influence in our lives. On a daily basis, we should entreat Jehovah to guide our thinking, speech, and actions by means of his spirit.(Ps. 143:10)

As we allow the spirit to operate freely in our lives, it will produce in us fruitage that is refreshing to others and that brings praise to God.

Why is it vital that we be led by holy spirit?

Because dominate us, a force that opposes the operation of holy spirit. That other force is what the Scriptures term “the flesh,” which refers to the sinful fallen flesh, the legacy of imperfection we have received as descendants Adam.—Gal. 5:17.

Sunday, February 3

You were once not a people, but are now God’s people.—1 Pet. 2:10.

From a Jewish viewpoint, Gentiles were incapable of producing acceptable fruitage. However, Jehovah made these very ones part of “a nation” that produced Kingdom fruitage.(Matt. 21:43)

Starting with the anointing of Cornelius—the first uncircumcised Gentile convert—in 36 C.E., the opportunity was opened up to uncircumcised non-Jews to be grafted onto this symbolic olive tree.(Acts 10:44-48)

Does this mean that after 36 C.E., there was no longer any opportunity for natural Jews to become part of Abraham’s seed?

No. Paul explains:“They [natural Jews] also, if they do not remain in their lack of faith, will be grafted in; for God is able to graft them in again. For if you were cut out of the olive tree that is wild by nature and were grafted contrary to nature into the garden olive tree, how much rather will these who are natural be grafted into their own olive tree!”—Rom. 11:23, 24.

I still don't see any indication, supported by scripture that only 144,000 are going to Heaven!

Jehovah's Witnesses teach only man-made doctrines which are not supported by scripture.

You've got to be mighty gullible to believe the lies Jehovah's Witnesses teach.

In our twentieth century, after the end of World War I in 1918, the anointed remnant were revitalized spiritually and marched out from captivity to Babylon the Great, the world empire of false religion, in order to resume their Kingdom service.

To that end, Jehovah restored them to their rightful estate on earth, to an approved relationship with him. He put his spirit upon them, to act with freedom, with outspokenness, in Kingdom service.

“Where the spirit of Jehovah is, there is freedom.”(2 Corinthians 3:17)

Since then, what aliveness the liberated remnant have displayed in his royal service, and also, later, the “great crowd” of their sheeplike coworkers!

Jehovah’s holy active force has been responsible for this, just as Romans 8:11 reminds us, saying:“If, now, the spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he that raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also make your mortal bodies alive through his spirit that resides in you.”

Here are the facts:

Jehovah's Witnesses believe that:

a. The "other sheep" of John 10:16 are to be equated with the "great crowd" of Revelation 7:9..( Life Everlasting in Freedom of the Sons of God, p. 364)

b. Members of the great crowd are not to be born again..(Watchtower, 12/1/68, pp. 733-735)

c. The majority of true Christians alive today, or 99.7% of Jehovah's Witnesses, are members of the great crowd..(Watchtower, 1/1/86, p. 23)

d. Members of the great crowd will pass through the great tribulation and enter directly into everlasting life on earth..(Reasoning from the Scriptures, p. 356)

e. The "earthly hope" is the only valid hope for the majority of true Christians alive on earth today..(Ibid., pp. 136-137)

Q1. Who are the "other sheep" of John 10:16?

John 10:16-"And I have other sheep, which are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they shall hear My voice; and they shall become one flock [with] one shepherd."

John 11:51-52-...that Jesus was going to die for the nation, and not for the nation only, but that He might also gather together into one the children of God who are scattered abroad.

Eph 2:13-14,16-But now in Christ Jesus you [Gentiles, vs. 11] who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who made both [groups into] one, and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall...reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross...



Q2. What does it mean to stand before the throne of God?

Rev 7:9,15-a great multitude...standing before the throne...they are before the throne of God

Rev 7:11-And all the angels were standing around the throne and [around] the elders and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God

Rev 14:1,3-one hundred and forty-four thousand...they sang a new song before the throne



Q3. In the book of Revelation, where is God's temple?

Rev 7:9,15-a great multitude...and they serve Him day and night in His temple

Rev 3:12-He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it any more

Rev 11:19-the temple of God which is in heaven

Rev 15:5-6-the temple of the tabernacle of testimony in heaven was opened, and the seven angels who had the seven plagues came out of the temple

Rev 15:8-And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from His power; and no one was able to enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished.

Rev 16:1-And I heard a loud voice from the temple, saying to the seven angels , "Go and pour out the seven bowls of the wrath of God into the earth."

Rev 11:1-2-And there was given me a measuring rod like a staff; and someone said, "Rise and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and those who worship in it. And leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the nations; and they will tread under foot the holy city for forty-two months.

More helpful information for the small minded hypocrites who are deluded by Satan's cult, the jehovah's witnesses.

Q4. Before Revelation chapter 21, where is God's tabernacle?

Rev 7:9,15-a great multitude...and He who sits on the throne shall spread His tabernacle over them.

Rev 13:6-And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle,[that is], those who dwell in heaven.

Rev 15:5-6-the temple of the tabernacle of testimony in heaven was opened, and the seven angels who had the seven plagues came out of the temple

Heb 8:1-2-Now the main point in what has been said [is this:] we have such a high priest, who has taken His seat at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, a minister in the sanctuary, and in the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, not man.

Heb 9:11,24-But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things to come,[He entered] through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation...For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a [mere] copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us...



Q5. What is the eventuality of those who have washed their robes?

Rev 7:9,14-a great multitude...they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb

Rev 22:14-Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city [New Jerusalem, Rev 21:2]



Q6. Must members of the great crowd be born again?

See BEING BORN AGAIN, Q2, Q4



Q7. What hope does the Bible hold out to Christians living in these last days?

See THE RAPTURE, Q1



Q8. Does Revelation chapter 7 state that the great crowd will pass through the great tribulation directly into the new earth without ever having been in heaven?

According to Revelation chapter 7, the great crowd:

Rev 7:9 - no one could count

7:9 - is from every nation and tribes and peoples and tongues

7:9 - are standing before the throne and before the Lamb

7:9 - are clothed in white robes

7:9 - have palm branches in their hands

7:10 - cry out: "Salvation to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb"

7:14 - these are the ones who come out of the great tribulation

7:14 - have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb

7:15 - serve God day and night in his temple

7:15 - shall have God's tabernacle spread over them

7:16 - shall no more hunger, thirst, nor have sun or heat beat down on them

7:17 - shall have the Lamb as their shepherd

7:17 - will be guided to springs of the water of life

7:17 - God shall wipe every tear from their eyes

JUST MORE PROOF THAT JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES PREACH LIES.

STILL WAITING FOR BIBLICAL PROOF REGARDING THE LIE JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES PREACH ABOUT THE 144,000 WHO ARE THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO GO TO HEAVEN.

YES, IT'S A TOTAL LIE! A LIE PREACHED BY JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES.

Summary:

a. The "other sheep" of John 10:16 are not to be equated with the "great crowd" of Revelation 7:9. By all indications the "other sheep" of John 10:16 are gentile Christians.

b. Members of the great crowd must be born again.

c. Members of the great crowd may or may not pass through the great tribulation and enter directly into everlasting life on earth. There are indications that many of them will spend some time in heaven.

d. The rapture is the only valid hope (other than dying in Christ and being resurrected) for all true Christians alive on earth today.

Scriptures commonly used by Jehovah's Witnesses:

Gen 1:28-And God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves on the earth."

See THE KINGDOM, Q4 ABOVE

Ps. 37:29-The righteous will inherit the land, and dwell in it forever.

See THE KINGDOM, Q4 ABOVE

Is 45:18-earth...He created if not in vain [Heb. tohu-without form; cp. Gen 1:2-the earth was without form], He formed it to be inhabited

Matt 5:5-Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.

Since these “sheep” are not the King’s spiritual “brothers,” he does not invite them to sit on heavenly thrones and rule with him for the special thousand years of his reign.

By his words “inherit the kingdom,” he is inviting them to enter the Kingdom era after he has destroyed all the ungodly kingdoms of this world during “the war of the great day of God the Almighty” at Har–Magedon.(Revelation 16:13-16)

Many of the sheeplike ones now living will survive that war of all wars and enter into Christ’s Thousand Year Reign without dying.

So the King Jesus Christ speaks to these “sheep” as to his children whose time has come to enter into an inheritance from him. By his death as a perfect human to provide a ransom sacrifice for all mankind, he gave up all prospects of personally enjoying the earthly Paradise.(Luke 23:39-43)

In this respect Jesus,“the last Adam,” is unlike “the first man Adam” who sinned and forfeited the earthly Paradise for all his offspring.

Thus the resurrected Jesus Christ, who becomes the “Eternal Father” of all the redeemed world of mankind, had something to bequeath to these sheeplike ones on earth.(1 Corinthians 15:45; Isaiah 9:6, 7)

The human family was founded in “the first man Adam,” with all his Paradise prospects and opportunities. But that lost Paradise is to be restored by means of God’s Kingdom in the hands of “the last Adam,” Jesus Christ.

Not until after they had been driven out of the first Paradise did Adam and Eve begin to have children. Their second son, righteous Abel, was murdered by their first son, Cain. So their son Seth was viewed as taking Abel’s place. With the birth of such offspring, the world of mankind was founded.

But before this, when the parents of the world of mankind were driven out of Paradise, Jehovah God made his merciful promise concerning a “seed” that would bruise, or crush, the head of the symbolic Serpent, Satan the Devil. That “seed” was to be a royal Seed, and this involved a Kingdom, according to God’s purpose and forevision.(Genesis 3:15)

When Satan the Serpent and his seed are put out of action, therefore, the redeemed ones of mankind would enter into a Kingdom realm on earth, under the heavenly government of the victorious Seed that crushes the Serpent and his seed.

In this way “the kingdom” that the sheeplike ones “inherit” from their Eternal Father, Jesus Christ, is the Kingdom realm that was “prepared for [them] from the founding of the world.”

Since the symbolic goats will be cut off in destruction at Armageddon, the surviving “sheep” will give a righteous start to the post-Armageddon system of things on a Paradise earth.

Regarding this, Jesus said:“These [goatlike ones] will depart into everlasting cutting-off, but the righteous ones into everlasting life.”—Matthew 25:46.

During this “conclusion of the system of things” since the end of the Gentile Times in 1914,“the sheep” and “the goats” differ in the way they interpret the “sign” of Jesus’“presence.”

Since we unquestionably are in a time of judgment, this question is of vital concern: What does the “sign” signify to us? If left to our own judgment, we might misinterpret the features of that “sign.” So we do well to ask: What does Jesus Christ say that this composite “sign” should indicate to us?

According to him, it should signify that the present system of things is to end shortly in a “great tribulation” more destructive than the global Flood of Noah’s day.—Matthew 24:21.

Yet, rejoice, for this “sign” also signifies that the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ is at hand, is ready to begin after the destruction of Satan’s system of things on earth.(Luke 21:28)

Therefore, under divine protection you have the priceless opportunity of surviving that “great tribulation” right on into the new system of things, in which righteousness is to dwell forever.

Indeed, there is set before you the possibility of never dying but of living endlessly and blessedly in a paradise earth under the universal sovereignty of Jehovah God!

Whether we are Christ’s spiritual “brothers” or the righteous “sheep,” then, let us act on the “sign” promptly and aright.

Let us have a further part in the outworking of its prominent feature:“This good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations.”

Then we shall have nothing to fear when “the end” comes. Instead, our joy will overflow! Then, too, Jesus Christ will be vindicated as the reliable forecaster of the many-featured “sign ... of the conclusion of the system of things.”—Matthew 24:3–25:46. W85 2/1 pp23-24

This is an invalid argument.

I never read all of your posts.

It's nothing but cult lies from the evil and wicked jehovah's witnesses who preach lies.

I would like to see scriptures which support the lies your cult preaches.

But I will never see scriptures to support the cult of jehovah's witnesses false doctrines.

And you can't provide any scriptures which support the false doctrines of the jehovah's witnesses.

You repeat cult lies.

There are no scriptures which support the false belief of only 144,000 in Heaven.

And you can provide on single scripture.

You can't provide scripture which supports the false doctrine that one must be in any organization to receive salvation, but it is a false doctrine of the evil and wicked cult of jehovah's witnesses.

You cannot provide scripture which supports the teaching of jehovah's witnesses, that Heaven was closed.

Yet, I expect you to come back with cult lies time and again, all of which originate with the one you follow, SATAN!

Some of the many lies taught by jehovah's witnesses.

It only takes one to make it a false religion.

1877 'The End Of This World; that is the end of the gospel and the beginning of the millennial age is nearer than most men suppose; indeed we have already entered the transition period, which is to be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation Dan. 12:3." (N.H. Barbour and C.T. Russell, Three Worlds, and the Harvest of This World, p. 17).

1879 "Christ came in the character of a Bridegroom in 1874.... at the beginning of the Gospel harvest." (Watchtower, Oct 1879, p. 4)

1880 "We need not here repeat the evidences that the "seventh trump" began its sounding A.D., 1840, and will continue until the end of the time of trouble, and the end of "The times of the Gentiles," A.D., 1914, and that it is the trouble of this "Great day," which is here symbolically called the voice of the Archangel when he begins the deliverance of fleshly Israel. "At that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince (Archangel) which standeth for the children of thy people and there shall be a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation." Dan. xii. 1. Nor will we here, again present the conclusive Bible proof that our Lord came for his Bride in 1874, and has an unseen work as Reaper of the first-fruits of this Gospel Age.(Zion's Watchtower November, 1880 p. 1)

1886 "The outlook at the opening of the New Year has some very encouraging features. The outward evidences are that the marshaling of the hosts for the battle of the great day of God Almighty, is in progress while the skirmishing is commencing.… The time is come for Messiah to take the dominion of earth and to overthrow the oppressors and corrupters of the earth,(Rev. 19:15 and 11:17, 18) preparatory to the establishment of everlasting peace upon the only firm foundation of righteousness and truth." (Zion's Watchtower, January, 1886;Watchtower reprints I, p. 817)

1888 "In this chapter we present the Bible evidence proving that the full end of the times of the gentiles, i.e., the full end of their lease of dominion, will be reached in A.D. 1914; and that the date will be the farthest limit of the rule of imperfect men. And be it observed, that if this is shown to be a fact firmly established by the Scriptures, it will prove; Firstly, that at that date the Kingdom of God, for which our Lord taught us to pray, saying, Thy Kingdom come, will obtain full, universal control, and that it will then be set up, or firmly established, in the earth, on the ruins of present institutions." (The Time Is At Hand, 1888, p. 76, 77)

1889 "Be not surprised, then, when in subsequent chapters we present proofs that the setting up of the Kingdom of God is already begun, that it is pointed out in prophecy as due to begin the exercise of power in A.D. 1878, and that the 'battle of the great day of God Almighty (Rev. 16:14) which will end in A.D. 1914 with the complete overthrow of earth's present rulership, is already commenced. The gathering of the armies is plainly visible from the standpoint of God's word." (Studies in the Scriptures, Vol. 2, The Time Is At Hand, 1889 Ed., p. 101. The 1915 Edition of this texts changed "A.D. 1914" to read 'A.D. 1915')

1889 "Here we furnish the evidence that from the creation of Adam to (but not including) A.D. 1873 was six thousand years. And though the Bible contains no direct statement that the seventh thousand will be the epoch of Christ's reign, the great Sabbath Day of restitution to the world, yet the venerable tradition is not without a reasonable foundation." (Studies in the Scriptures, Vol. 2, p. 39. 1889)

1889 "If, then, the seventh thousand-year period of earth's history be an epoch specially noted as the period of Christ's reign, we shall by showing that it began in 1873, be proving that we are already in it." (Studies in the Scriptures, Vol. 2, p. 40. 1889)

THESE LIES WERE PREACHED BY JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES.

MORE LIES TAUGHT BY JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES WHICH ARE NOT SUPPORTED BY BIBLE SCRIPTURE...

1889 "In the coming 26 years, all present governments will be overthrown and dissolved." (C.T. Russell, Studies in the Scriptures, Vol. 2, p. 98-99, 1889)

1889 "In this chapter we present the Bible evidence which indicates that six thousand years from the creation of Adam were complete with A.D. 1872; and hence that, since A.D. 1872 are chronologically entered upon the seventh thousand or the Millennium." (Studies in the Scriptures, Vol. 2, p. 33, 1889)

1889 "Remember that the forty years' Jewish Harvest ended October A.D. 69, and was followed by the complete overthrow of that nation; and that likewise the forty years of the Gospel age harvest will end October, 1914, and that likewise the overthrow of 'Christendom,' so-called, must be expected to immediately follow." (Studies in the Scriptures, Vol. 2, p. 245)

1894 "Seventeen years ago people said, concerning the time features presented in Millennial Dawn, They seem reasonable in many respects, but surely no such radical changes could occur between now and the close of 1914: if you had proved that they would come about in a century or two, it would seem much more probable. What changes have since occurred, and what velocity is gained daily?'The old is quickly passing and the new is coming in.' Now, in view of recent labor troubles and threatened anarchy, our readers are writing to know if there may not be a mistake in the 1914 date. They say that they do not see how present conditions can hold out so long under the strain. We see no reason for changing the figures-nor could we change them if we would. They are, we believe, God's dates, not ours. But bear in mind that the end of 1914 is not the date for the beginning, but for the end of the time of trouble." (Zion's Watchtower, Can It Be Delayed until 1914? C. T. Russell July 15, 1894, Also in Watchtower Reprints, l894 p. 1677)

1894 "A few more years will wind up the present order of things, and then the chastened world will stand face to face with the actual conditions of the established Kingdom of God. And yet the course of the Church is to be finished within the space of time that intervenes." (Watchtower p. 56, 1894)

1894 "We see no reason for changing the figures - nor could we change them if we would. They are, we believe, God's dates, not ours. But bear in mind that the end of 1914 is not the date for the beginning, but for the end of the time of trouble." (Watchtower July 15, 1894, p 266; p 1677 reprints)

1894 "We see no reason for changing the figures nor could we change them if we would. They are, we believe, Gods dates, not ours. But bear in mind that the end of 1914 is not the date for the beginning, but for the end of the time of trouble." (Watchtower, July 15, 1894, Reprints p. 1677)

1897 "...this measurement is 3416 inches, symbolizing 3416 years.... This calculation shows A.D. 1874 as marking the beginning of the period of trouble...." (Russell, Studies in the Scriptures: Thy Kingdom Come, Series III, p. 342, 1897 edition [1916 edition changed to read: "We find it to be 3457 inches, symbolizing 3457 years.... Thus the Pyramid witnesses that the close of 1914 will be the beginning of the time of trouble...."] note: the measurement was the length of an interior passageway discovered inside the Pyramids. It has no reference in Scripture.)

1897 "Complete destruction of the 'powers that be' of 'this present evil worlds - political, financial, ecclesiastical - about the close of the Time of the Gentiles; October A.D. 1914." (C.T. Russell, Studies in the Scriptures, IV, p. 622, 1897)

1897 "Our Lord, the appointed King, is now present, since October 1874, A.D....and the formal inauguration of his kingly office dates from April 1878, A.D." (Studies in the Scriptures, Vol.4, p.621, 1897)

MORE LIES TAUGHT BY SATAN'S CULT, THE JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES.

1902 "In view of this strong Bible evidence concerning the Times of the Gentiles, we consider it an established truth that the final end of the kingdoms of this world, and the full establishment of the kingdom of God, will be accomplished by the end of A.D. 1914." (The Time Is At Hand, 1902 edition, p. 99)

1903 "When Uranus and Jupiter meet in the humane sign of Aquarius in 1914, the long-promised era will have made a fair start in the work of setting man free to work out his own salvation, and will insure the ultimate realization of dreams and ideals of all poets and sages in history." (Watchtower, May 1, 1903, p. 130-131; p3184 Reprints)

1904 "According to our expectations the stress of the great time of trouble will be on us soon, somewhere between 1910 and 1912, culminating with the end of the 'Times of the Gentiles,' October, 1914." (The New Creation, Studies in the Scriptures, Vol. 6, p. 579, 1904)

1908 "In view of this strong Bible evidence concerning the Times of the Gentiles, we consider it an established truth that the final end of the kingdoms of this world, and the full establishment of the Kingdom of God, will be accomplished at the end of A. D. 1914." (The Time Is At Hand; 1889; 1908 ed.; p. 99)

1908 "True, it is expecting great things to claim, as we do, that within the coming twenty-six years all present governments will be overthrown and dissolved" (The Time Is At Hand; 1889; 1908 ed.; p. 99)

1914 "Even if the time of our change should not come within ten years, what more should we ask? Are we not a blessed, happy people? Is not our God faithful? If anyone knows anything better, let him take it. If any of you ever find anything better, we hope you will tell us." (Watchtower, Dec 15, 1914, p. 376.)

1914 "Studying God's Word, we have measured the 2520 years, the seven symbolic times, from that year 606 B.C. and have found that it reached down to October, 1914, as nearly as we were able to reckon. We did not say positively that this would be the year." (Watchtower, November 1, 1914, p. 325)

1914 "While it's possible that Armageddon may begin next Spring, yet this purely speculation to attempt to say just when. We see, however, that there are parallels between the close of the Jewish age and this Gospel age. These parallels seem to point to the year just before us part particularly the early months." (Watchtower Reprints, VI, Sept 1, 1914, p. 5527)

1914 "There is absolutely no ground for Bible students to question that the consummation of this Gospel age is now even at the door, and that it will end as the Scriptures foretell in a great time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation. We see the participants in this great crisis banding themselves together… The great crisis, the great clash, symbolically represented as a fire, that will consume the ecclesiastical heavens and the social earth, is very near." (Watchtower Reprints, VI, May 1, 1914, p. 5450)

1915 "The present great war in Europe is the beginning of the Armageddon of the Scriptures Rev 19:16-20). It will eventuate in the complete overthrow of all the systems of error which have so long oppressed the people of God and deluded the world. We believe the present war cannot last much longer until revolutions shall break out" (C.T. Russell, Pastor Russell's Sermons, p. 676, Sometime during World War I)

1915 Here we furnish the evidence that from the creation of Adam to A.D. 1873 was six thousand years. And though the Bible contains no direct statement that the seventh thousand will be the epoch of Christ's reign, the great Sabbath Day of restitution to the world, yet the venerable tradition is not without reasonable foundation.(The Time Is At Hand; 1889; 1915 ed.; p. 39)

1915 If, then, the seventh thousand-year period of earth's history be an epoch specially noted as the period of Christ's reign, we shall, by showing that it began in A.D. 1873, be proving that we are already in it.(The Time Is At Hand; 1889; 1915 ed.; p. 40)

1915 Firstly, that at that date [1914] the Kingdom of God, for which our Lord taught us to pray, saying, "Thy Kingdom come," will begin to assume control, and that it will then shortly be "set up," or firmly established, in the earth, on the ruins of present institutions.(The Time Is At Hand; 1889; 1915 ed.; p. 77)

1915 "In view of this strong Bible evidence concerning the Times of the Gentiles, we consider it an established truth that the final end of the kingdoms of this world, and the full establishment of the kingdom of God, will be accomplished near the end of A.D. 1915.(The Time Is At Hand, 1915 edition, p. 99)

1915 "Be not surprised, then, when in subsequent chapters we present proofs that the setting up of the Kingdom of God is already begun, that it is pointed out in prophecy as due to begin the exercise of power in A.D. 1878, and that the 'battle of the great day of God Almighty'(Rev. 16:14), which will end in A.D. 1915, with the complete overthrow of the earth's present rulership, is already commenced." (The Time Is At Hand; 1889; 1915 ed.; p. 101)

1915 "As in the type that date - three and a half years after the death of Christ - marked the end of all special favor to the Jew and the beginning of favor to the Gentiles, so we recognize A.D. 1881 as marking the close of the 'high calling,' or invitation to the blessing peculiar to this age - to become joint-heirs with Christ and partakers of the divine nature." (The Time Is At Hand; 1889; 1915 ed.; p. 235)

1915 So it was in this harvest also up to A.D. 1878 the time prophecies and the fact of the Lord's presence, substantially as here presented, though less clearly, was our message. Since then the work has widened, and the view of other truths has become brighter and clearer; but the same fact and scriptures, teaching the same time and presence, stand unchallenged and incontrovertible.(The Time Is At Hand; 1889; 1915 ed.; p. 236)

1915 The Gentile Times prove that the present governments must all be overturned about the close of A.D. 1915; and Parallelism above shows that this period corresponds exactly with the year A.D. 70, which witnessed the completion of the downfall of the Jewish polity.(The Time Is At Hand, 1915 edition, p. 242)

1915 We are already living in the seventh millennium - since October 1872.(The Time Is At Hand; 1889; 1915 ed.; p. 363)

1915 The Battle of Armageddon, to which this war is leading, will be a great contest between right and wrong, and will signify the complete and everlasting overthrow of the wrong, and the permanent establishment of Messiah's righteous kingdom for the blessing of the world.… Our sympathies are broad enough to cover all engaged in the dreadful strife, as our hope is broad enough and deep enough to include all in the great blessings which our Master and his Millennial kingdom are about to bring to the world.(Watchtower Reprints, VI, April 1, 1915, p. 5659)

1915 To our understanding the general call to this joint heirship with our Redeemer as members of the New Creation of God, ceased in 1881.(The New Creation; 1899; 1915 ed.; p. 95)
