Catholicism claims and assumes that which justly belongs exclusively to God. Modernists deny God, deny His Word and His plan of redemption, and offer blind force as a remedy for man’s undone condition. Fundamentalists, while professing to believe the Bible, by their course of action deny the same. They teach false and God dishonoring doctrines, and together with Catholics and Modernists are allied with the political and commercial powers of the world in blasphemously claiming the ability to establish God’s kingdom on earth. All these have combined under Satan their superlord to push God into a corner and to dishonor his name....

... Knowing this, and that his time is short, the Devil is trying to overwhelm the peoples with a great flood of false and deceptive doctrines and to turn their minds completely away from Jehovah. The time has come for God to make for himself a name in the earth and for the peoples to know the truth concerning the divine plan, which is the only means of salvation for the world.—Paragraphs 5, 6, 9. See The Watch Tower as of October 15, 1925, pages 310, 311. Note also Revelation 8:12; 16:8, 9.

The address “A Call to Action,” with which the above resolution was introduced, said, in paragraph 28:“The time has come for Jehovah to make for himself a name in the earth. The church has a part in this to the extent of being the witnesses for the Lord.”(Page 326 of The Watch Tower as of November 1, 1925) So, from the start of the year (1926) following the resolution and its distribution world wide in a tract, the Jeremiah class made a noteworthy effort to set the name of Jehovah before all mankind. But Christendom’s clergy proved to be disrespectful of the name of God. Transferring God’s name from his stated purpose to bring a whirlwind of calamity upon Christendom, the clergy kept saying “to those who are disrespectful of me [God],‘Jehovah has spoken:“Peace is what you people will come to have.”’ And to every one walking in the stubbornness of his heart they have said,‘No calamity will come upon you people.’”—Jer. 23:17-20.

However, who sent those clergymen with their promises of peace? They had not “stood in the intimate group of Jehovah” so as to learn his message accurately. Jehovah had not sent them in his name. He did not speak to them that they might prophesy what was “from the mouth of Jehovah.” The religious sects of Christendom sent them forth from her theological seminaries. What would have happened if the clergy had stood in Jehovah’s “intimate group” or in his council and had stuck to his disclosures? Jehovah says:“But if they had stood in my intimate group, then they would have made my people hear my own words, and they would have caused them to turn back from their bad way and from the badness of their dealings.”—Jer. 23:21, 22.

In that case there would not be the appalling Bible illiteracy that exists today among churchgoers. If the clergy themselves had taken the lead and had adhered to God’s revealed Word and had taught their millions of church members to do the same, two world wars would not have occurred, wars that started inside Christendom! The responsible clergy are not concealed from Jehovah. He has not been only a “God nearby” so as not to see things far away.—Jer. 23:23, 24.

The time has come for the people to decide whether to listen further to the “dreams” of Christendom’s clergy or to listen to Jehovah’s Word as proclaimed by the Jeremiah class. The time has come also for those who claim to be ministers of God to act on the issue set out in Jeremiah 23:25-28:“The prophet with whom there is a dream, let him relate the dream; but the one with whom my own word is, let him speak forth my word truthfully.”

What does Jehovah’s Word have to do with unfounded “dreams,” the visions of mere human hearts? Nothing! There must be a cleavage between the two things, like a separation of grain from the straw. The Jeremiah class having God’s Word within them have decided to speak it forth faithfully all the time. Out of respect for Jehovah a “great crowd” of listeners have decided to do likewise.

For nearly 60 years now the Jeremiah class have faithfully spoken forth Jehovah’s Word. Of its own self that Word has not burned up the combustible organizations of Christendom; nor has it smashed to pieces the mountainlike system of things. Yet the divine Word as proclaimed by the Jeremiah class is not a failure. When, at Jehovah’s due time, in the “great tribulation,” that spoken Word is carried out by him, then his own question will be answered affirmatively:“‘Is not my word correspondingly like a fire,’ is the utterance of Jehovah,‘and like a forge hammer that smashes the crag?’”(Jer. 23:25) So let us keep faith in that Word.

Unlike the clergy class, those of the Jeremiah class have been sent by Jehovah to speak in his name. Nevertheless, the clergy prophets also claim to speak in his name and, hence, to tell the Bible truth. In this way Christendom’s religious leaders really ‘steal’ away the force and effect of the calamitous message proclaimed by the Jeremiah class. True, the Jeremiah class back up their message by quoting the words,“This is what Jehovah has said.” But the clergy try to add weight and the ring of truth to what they preach by affixing the words,“An utterance!” Seemingly they speak from God. So they may use a Bible text as a pretext for preaching about politics or even war propaganda. Yet Jehovah is against such clergy prophets whom he did not send forth from his intimate group and who ‘steal’ words from his Bible in order to make a wrong application of them.—Jer. 23:30, 31.

How will Jehovah show that such clergy prophets are fakes? By not fulfilling what they announce to be “an utterance!” or what they presume to speak in his name. He does not back up their falsehood.“‘Here I am against the prophets of false dreams,’ is the utterance of Jehovah,‘who relate them and cause my people to wander about [going astray] because of their falsehoods and because of their boasting.’‘But I myself did not send them or command them. So they will by no means benefit this people,’ is the utterance of Jehovah.”(Jer. 23:32) Too bad for the people!

At this time when Christendom is not at peace with God, let us not be soothed to spiritual drowsiness or to sleep by the clergy’s false assurance of peace. Let us take seriously “the burden,” or weighty message, from God’s Word.—Jer. 23:33.

“THE BURDEN OF JEHOVAH”

Today Jehovah’s message for this political, religious, commercial system of things is heavy with doom bespeaking ruinous calamity. It is accordingly a heavy responsibility for us to declare Jehovah’s message for this “time of the end.” So when we answer people’s questions about the destiny of this system of things, let us be sure to tell what is really the “burden” of Jehovah. When Christendom’s laity class or prophets or priests ask us to tell them frankly on what points the weight of Jehovah’s Word bears down, we are obliged to tell them that Christendom’s people themselves are to him a “burden,” yes,“O what a burden!” So he will rid himself of this “burden” by abandoning Christendom to calamity.

People disrespectful of Jehovah do not like to accept what the Jeremiah class declare to be “the burden of Jehovah.” So they do not like to remember it as something really serious. By way of a counter-proposition, they follow their prophets and priests in presenting what they insist is the real “burden” of God’s Word. But their counter-proposition is not based on the Holy Scriptures. It is of private interpretation, and so it “becomes to each one his own word.” To such self-opinionated religionists, the Jeremiah class say:“You have changed the words of the living God, Jehovah of armies, our God.”(Jer. 23:33-36) But can they change the calamity about which the “burden of Jehovah” warns us? Aha, No!

Contrary to what those of the Jeremiah class have proclaimed since the postwar year of 1919, Christendom’s mouthpieces present their false, misleading message. To make it sound weighty to others, they refer to what they have to say as “The burden of Jehovah.” To these religionists Jehovah has continuously sent the Jeremiah class to tell such ones not to denominate their sermons and prophesyings as “The burden of Jehovah.” So what response must the Jeremiah class make to such religionists? This:

“Therefore this is what Jehovah has said:‘By reason of your saying,“This word is the very burden of Jehovah,” when I kept sending to you [by the Jeremiah class], saying:“You must not say:‘The burden of Jehovah!’” therefore here I am!’”—Jer. 23:38, 39.

Right! Jehovah is here as Judge of Christendom’s prophets. What decision does he hand down regarding the “prophets” who classify their message as “the very burden of Jehovah” and regarding the people who take heed to the counterfeit “burden”? The Judge tells us:

“And I will give you people to neglect, with finality, and I will desert you and the city that I gave to you and to your forefathers—from before me. And I will put upon you reproach to time indefinite and humiliation to time indefinite, which will not be forgotten.”—Jer. 23:39, 40.

Judge Jehovah’s decision as thus stated was executed in Jeremiah’s day, when the Babylonians destroyed Jerusalem and its profaned temple in 607 B.C.E. This reproachful, humiliating experience for those stubborn, unfaithful Israelites proved that Jehovah, whom they had disrespected, had now finally given them up to neglect. He had deserted them to the consequences of their badness. It silenced the mouths of the presumptuous false prophets. But Jeremiah’s mouth kept prophesying. Jehovah had not deserted him. True to this type, Jehovah will not desert the Jeremiah class when shortly he executes his weighty decision against Christendom’s clergy and congregations.—Jer. 39:11–40:4; Lam. 1:1-22.

Jehovah will not desert his people.—1 Sam. 12:22.

God is unfailingly giving his people needed help and comfort in these critical last days. For over a century, thousands of our fellow believers throughout the world have been persecuted and imprisoned just because they served Jehovah. Their experiences prove that in times of trial, Jehovah does indeed comfort his servants.

For example, one of our brothers in the former Soviet Union was sentenced to 23 years in prison because of his faith. Even so, a way was found to get spiritual food to him so that he could be strengthened and comforted. He stated:“During all those years, I learned to trust in Jehovah and received strength from him.”(1 Pet. 5:6, 7)

Regardless of what we may yet face, we will do well to bear in mind the psalmist’s comforting words:“Jehovah will not forsake his people.”(Ps. 94:14) Although we personally need to be comforted, we also have the grand privilege of bringing comfort to others.

The Jehovah's Witnesses are a monolatrous religion based on a fragmented universe with a god of good and a god of evil.

The Jehovah's Witnesses formally reject the OMNIPRESENT GOD of Israel for this absurdity they call "jehovah", an erroneous hybrid error made in the 13th century:

http://www.seanet.com/~raines/jehovah.html

Their whole religion is based on several serious misunderstandings of scriptures that have actually resulted in the deaths of members such as their insane view on blood transfusions.

And then we have the serious issue of the young people who have committed suicide because of the organization's view on homosexuality, something established before birth.

How can an organization that rejects the GOD at the heart of the teachings of the Jewish Jesus be even remotely considered to be true disciples of Jesus?

The true God is not omnipresent, for he is spoken of as having a location.(1Ki 8:49; Joh 16:28; Heb 9:24)

His throne is in heaven.(Isa 66:1)

He is all-powerful, being the Almighty God.(Ge 17:1; Re 16:14)

“All things are naked and openly exposed to the eyes of him,” and he is “the One telling from the beginning the finale.”(Heb 4:13; Isa 46:10, 11; 1Sa 2:3)

His power and knowledge extend everywhere, reaching every part of the universe.(2Ch 16:9; Ps 139:7-12; Am 9:2-4)

The true God is spirit, not flesh (Joh 4:24; 2Co 3:17.

Some of God’s primary attributes are love (1Jo 4:8), wisdom (Pr 2:6; Ro 11:33), justice (De 32:4; Lu 18:7, 8), and power (Job 37:23; Lu 1:35). He is a God of order and of peace.(1Co 14:33)

He is completely holy, clean and pure (Isa 6:3; Hab 1:13; Re 4:8); happy (1Ti 1:11); and merciful (Ex 34:6; Lu 6:36). Many other qualities of his personality are described in the Scriptures.

The ones chosen obtained it.—Rom. 11:7.

When the selection of those who would form the heavenly “kingdom of priests” started at Pentecost 33 C.E., there were some righthearted Jews who accepted the invitation.(Ex. 19:6)

Numbering a few thousand, these were just like “a remnant” in comparison with the whole Jewish nation. How, though, would Jehovah complete “the full number” of those who were to become Abraham’s seed?(Rom. 11:5, 12, 25)

Notice the answer given by the apostle Paul:“It is not as though the word of God had failed. For not all who spring from [natural] Israel are really ‘Israel.’ Neither because they are Abraham’s seed [offspring] are they all children [part of the Abrahamic seed]... That is, the children in the flesh are not really the children of God, but the children by the promise are counted as the seed.”(Rom. 9:6-8)

So physical descent from Abraham was not a rigid requirement for the fulfillment of Jehovah’s purpose regarding the seed. w11 5/15 4:11, 12

The Pharisees believed in an omnipresent God. They reasoned that since “God was everywhere, He could be worshiped both in and outside the Temple, and was not to be invoked by sacrifices alone.

They thus fostered the synagogue as a place of worship, study, and prayer, and raised it to a central and important place in the life of the people which rivaled the Temple.”—Encyclopaedia Judaica.

The Pharisees lacked appreciation for Jehovah’s temple. This can be seen from Jesus’ words:“Woe to you, blind guides, who say,‘If anyone swears by the temple, it is nothing; but if anyone swears by the gold of the temple, he is under obligation.’ Fools and blind ones! Which, in fact, is greater, the gold or the temple that has sanctified the gold? Also,‘If anyone swears by the altar, it is nothing; but if anyone swears by the gift on it, he is under obligation.’ Blind ones! Which, in fact, is greater, the gift or the altar that sanctifies the gift? Therefore he that swears by the altar is swearing by it and by all the things on it.”—Matthew 23:16-20.

How could the Pharisees become so twisted in their reasoning? What were they overlooking?

Note what Jesus says next.“And he that swears by the temple is swearing by it and by him that is inhabiting it.”(Matthew 23:21)

Concerning this verse, scholar E. P. Sanders observed:“The temple was holy not only because the holy God was worshipped there, but also because he was there.”(Judaism: Practice and Belief, 63 BCE—66 CE)

However, Jehovah’s special presence would mean little to those who thought that he was everywhere.

ARMAGEDDON is shrouded in mystery and misconceptions. Ideas as to its meaning abound. The word Armageddon, though, is derived from Har–Magedon, or Mountain of Megiddo.

It is a Bible word found at Revelation 16:16, which states:“And they gathered them together to the place that is called in Hebrew Har–Magedon [or, Armageddon].”

Who are gathered to Armageddon and why? Revelation 16:14 answers:“The kings of the entire inhabited earth” muster “to the war of the great day of God the Almighty.”

Have regard for those who are ... presiding over you in the Lord.—1 Thess. 5:12.

Imagine yourself as a member of the first-century Thessalonian congregation, one of the earliest to be established in Europe. The apostle Paul had spent considerable time building up the brothers there. He may have appointed older men to take the lead, as was the case in other congregations.(Acts 14:23) But after the congregation was formed, the Jews organized a mob to rid the city of Paul and Silas. The Christians who remained might have felt deserted, perhaps even fearful. Understandably, after leaving Thessalonica, Paul was concerned about the fledgling congregation. He tried to return, but “Satan cut across” his path. So he sent Timothy to encourage the congregation.(1 Thess. 2:18; 3:2) When Timothy brought back a good report, Paul was moved to write the Thessalonians a letter. Among other things, Paul encouraged them to ‘have regard for those who were presiding over them.’

We have to take Jesus’ parable of the sheep and the goats along with what he said earlier in his prophecy on “the sign of [his] presence and of the conclusion of the system of things.”(Matthew 24:3)

He spoke of the approved work for his spiritual “brothers” when, at Matthew 24:14, he told them:“This good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations.”

Not just to the so-called Christian nations or to Christendom, but to “all the nations” in “all the inhabited earth.”

Yet Jesus also told his spiritual “brothers”:“Then people will deliver you up to tribulation and will kill you, and you will be objects of hatred by all the nations on account of my name.”(Matthew 24:9)

Hatred on account of his name means that Christ’s “brothers” would identify themselves by their preaching of “this good news of the kingdom” world wide and by their making disciples for him, baptizing these.(Matthew 28:19, 20)

In general, the people or the national governments that these people support refuse to acknowledge that these preachers of the Kingdom “good news” are Christ’s spiritual “brothers.” But does this really disprove that they are actually Christ’s spiritual “brothers”? No!

This general refusal of people to recognize Christ’s spiritual “brothers” as being such, and this international hatred of them because of what they are preaching about the Kingdom have influenced people in their treatment of these.

This makes you a bigotry-based murderer, an anti-non-Christian bigot.
You are disgusting, no matter how nice you try to sound.
It's jst a bunch of candy-coated fiction you're writing here. Your real purpos it to use your doctrine as a tool for human self-extinction. Your "Christians-only" world will never happen except in your dreams!
STOP spreading this world-ending CRAP.
Moreover, just as it occurred in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of man: 27- they were eating, they were drinking, men were marrying, women were being given in marriage, until that day when Noah entered into the ark, and the flood arrived and destroyed them all.(Luke 17:26, 27)

Jesus predicted the end of the present violent system, saying:“Just as it occurred in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of man.”(Luke 17:26)

Would that again include violence on a grand scale due to the influence of wicked angels? Yes, for not only did Jesus foretell widespread lawlessness for that future time but in Revelation he pinpointed the source of it.

He tells of ousting the original rebel, Satan himself, from heaven and says that “his angels were hurled down with him.”

To where? The inspired vision answers:“Woe for the earth ... because the Devil [the original violent one] has come down to you, having great anger.” So, once more, in the time of the end of a dying order, violence—again whipped up by wicked spirit forces—grips mankind!(Revelation 12:7-12; 6:4; Matthew 24:12)

When you have the Bible’s viewpoint, namely, that violence got its start with rebellion against the sovereignty of God, then it is not difficult to see that violence will not end nor will peace be restored until all modern-day rebels are justly removed forever by God.

And that is exactly what he has purposed to do.“The God who gives peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly.”(Romans 16:20)

All of Satan’s violent “seed” must perish. And so must Satan.(Genesis 3:15; Matthew 25:41).

What a joy to be alive when Satan is removed! The “Prince of Peace,” Jesus, will make sure, then, that ‘there will be no end to peace.’(Isaiah 2:2-4; 9:6, 7)

It will be a whole new order,“the home of justice.”(2 Peter 3:13, The New English Bible) Earth’s new Ruler will banish for all time all forms of violence, including suffering and death.

He says:“There shall be an end to death, and to mourning and crying and pain; for the old order has passed away!”(Revelation 21:1-4, NE).

Just as in the days of Noah, Jehovah has made loving provision for deliverance out of a violent world.(Zephaniah 2:2, 3) Until that deliverance comes, we must keep feeding on God’s Word to build an informed faith.

“And what is faith?

Faith gives substance to our hopes, and makes us certain of realities we do not see.... For anyone who comes to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who search for him.”(Hebrews 11:1, 6, NE).
