Bits and Pieces

Bits and pieces of information we find interesting

Could the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society be getting ready to set yet another date for the end of the world? Read this quote, it sounds like they are hinting at 2034 as a new end of the world date.

Subheading: Warned of “Things Not Yet Beheld”

Paragraphs 6 and 7:
In Noah’s day, Jehovah declared: “My spirit shall not act toward man indefinitely in that he is also flesh. Accordingly his days shall amount to a hundred and twenty years.” (Genesis 6:3) The issuance of this divine decree in 2490 B.C.E. marked the beginning of the end for that ungodly world. Just think what that meant for those then living! Only 120 years more and Jehovah would bring “the deluge of waters upon the earth to bring to ruin all flesh in which the force of life is active from under the heavens.” - Genesis 6:17.
Noah received the warning of the upcoming catastrophe decades in advance, and he wisely used the time to prepare for survival. “After being given divine warning of things not yet beheld.” Says the apostle Paul, “[Noah] showed godly fear and constructed an ark for the salvation of his household.” (Hebrews 11:7) What about us? Some 90 years have passed since the last days of this system of things began in 1914. We are certainly in “the time of the end.” (Daniel 12:4) How should we respond to warnings we have been given? “He that does the will of God remains forever,” states the Bible. (1 John 2:17) Now is therefore the time to do Jehovah’s will with a keen sense of urgency.
Paragraph 9:
Jehovah has kept these warnings in front of his people by means of timely reminders through the spiritual food provided by “the faithful and discrete slave.” …
Paragraph 21:
Although the Flood seems remote from our day, it clearly provides a warning that we must not ignore….

Recent Watchtower Numbers

The January 1, 2003 Watchtower claimed a 2.8% increase worldwide. But, how can they be increasing when so many are leaving? Many who are currently leaving do not inform the congregation, so they can maintain their relationships with family and friends. Many congregations still count such ones so they will look good to the Circuit Overseers.

Also, the Watchtower Society is known to "pad" their numbers, such as they did in Sweden to get more tax money from the government.

They claim to have baptized 265,469 people, with much of their growth being in third-world countries. However, they only increased 166,824. So, about 100,000 either officially left or died, even by their numbers.

Also interesting is that in the year 2000, the number of so-called "anointed" was 8,661. In 2001 it was 8,730. In 2002 it was 8,760. Instead of dying off, they are increasing. Lots of "new-anointed" showing up, but the Watchtower says that those are people with mental and emotional problems.

We need to keep in mind that the Watchtower Society has always made a big deal about numbers. We don't want to get caught up in their insane approach to God's work of salvation. Everyone is in the hands of the Lord and the Watchtower and Mormon Church can gather all they want, and at the right time, His time, our Lord will call His elect out of there and to Him.

In the February 15, 1983 Watchtower we are told that there are four requirements for salvation:

1. "take in knowledge."

2. "obey God's laws."

3. "be associated with God's Channel, his organization."

4. "loyally advocating his kingdom rule to others."

Last week at a JW Circuit assembly, Ted Jaracz, the most influential man at the Watchtower headquarters, stated these four things are "required for life":

1. Prayer; but not to Jesus

2. Read the Bible (This really means reading Watchtower literature)

3. WORKS! specifically the preaching work.

4. Be associated with Jehovah's Witnesses (None of this agrees with Acts 2!

Does this man even read the Watchtower? Basically, he got two out of four.

Whether you take the Watchtower list or Ted Jaracz list, what is of profound significance is the fact that neither make any mention of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, God's grace, or believing in Jesus Christ.

Someone should make a movie, "CLUELESS IN BROOKLYN."
