WBTS False Prophecies - and the Lying Cover-ups! - 16

The WBTS made it clear in 1971 that they are claiming to be the prophet speaking for 'Jehovah' claiming 'Christendom will know that really a 'prophet' of Jehovah was among them' and that they were 'the modern-day counterpart of the prophet Ezekiel' !

The Nations Shall Know That I Am Jehovah, 1971 ed., p56-57:  "Ezekiel was not raising himself up as a prophet and presuming to speak in the divine name. He was really a prophet sent by the Most High God ... Not alone were the inspired words of Ezekiel prophetic, but he himself was a prophetic figure in his action, as is later shown on occasions. (Ezekiel 24:24)  Since Ezekiel himself was a 'portent,' or 'sign' (AV), of someone to come, and since he was not a type or prophetic figure of Jesus Christ, whom did the prophet Ezekiel typify in carrying out his divine commission?"

The Nations Shall Know That I Am Jehovah, 1971 ed., p58-59 - the WBTS make it clear that they are claiming to be the prophet speaking for 'Jehovah':

"Here, then, since 1914, and particularly since the year 1919, after World War I had ended,
we should look for the modern-day counterpart of the prophet Ezekiel. Who is Ezekiel's present-day counterpart, whose message and conduct correspond with that of that ancient prophet of Jehovah? Of whom today was he a 'sign' or 'portent'? Not of some individual man, but of a group of people. Being made up of a unified company of persons, the modern Ezekiel is a composite personage, made up of many members, just the same as the human body is."

"So it is with the modern-day counterpart of Ezekiel: it is, not one person's body, but a composite body, made up of many members. All the members were together to do the will of Jehovah, who is the Creator of this modern 'Ezekiel.' Who, then, are the group of persons who, toward the beginning of this 'time of the end,' were commissioned to serve as the mouthpiece and active agent of Jehovah? In order to determine this, check the history of 1919, the first postwar year after the first world war."  (The Nations Shall Know That I Am Jehovah, 1971 ed., p58-59)

The Nations Shall Know That I Am Jehovah, 1971 ed., p62 - the WBTS state:  "They were a small minority group of men and women who had dedicated themselves to Jehovah as God by following in the footsteps of his Son Jesus Christ. To give public evidence of this dedication to Jehovah, they had undergone water baptism just as their Leader Jesus Christ had done when he was immersed in the Jordan river by John the Baptist."

The Nations Shall Know That I Am Jehovah, 1971 ed., p70-71 (above):

"At the time, they might not view or appreciate him as a prophet of Jehovah. But whether they heard him as such or refrained from hearing and paying attention to him, the occasion was to come when these rebellious people would 'know also that a prophet himself happened to be in the midst of them.' Jehovah would confirm him as a prophet before them by causing what Ezekiel prophesied to come true ...
Likewise it was a trying mission upon which the modern Ezekiel class was sent, to religious people of the same type as those in Ezekiel's day. But regardless of how Christendom views or regards this group of anointed witnesses of Jehovah, the time must come, and that shortly, when those making up Christendom will know that really a 'prophet' of Jehovah was among them ... Since the year 1919 C.E. the anointed remnant of Jehovah's witnesses have found it to be just like that as they have spoken fearlessly the word of Jehovah in the midst of Christendom."


The Watchtower, March 15, 1972, p189 - "More accurately, was there any group on whom Jehovah would be willing to bestow the commission to speak as a 'prophet' in His name, as was done toward Ezekiel..."

The desperate attempts to deny that they claimed to be prophets who prophesied falsely rebounds on the WBTS - time and time again!!!
