WBTS False Prophecies - and the Lying Cover-ups! - 20

Whether it is 1943 - when they are moronically pontificating about scientific matters - 1959, or 1993, the WBTS somehow forget their past history of 100% prophetic failure and ask:  'Whom has God actually used as his prophet?'  - while mocking other false prophets!

The Truth Shall Make You Free, 1943, p285 - the WBTS decided to instruct the world on scientific matters and pontificated that man would never get 'above the air envelope which is about our earthly globe'. 

Of course this also meant that man would also never reach the moon by rocket!

Then - as we all know - on October 4, 1957, Sputnik 1 got 'above the air envelope' - and less than twelve years later Apollo 11 landed the first humans on the Moon (Americans Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on July 20, 1969)!

Failure is a never-ending story whenever the WBTS pontificates arrogantly - whether it be prophecy, theology, or the facts of history and science!

The Truth Shall Make You Free, 1943, p300 stated that "Christ Jesus came to the Kingdom in A.D. 1914, but unseen to men."

The Watchtower, February 1, 1952, p80 - the WBTS specialises in emphasising how inferior their followers are and the high-lighted sections (and beyond) reveals this clearly:

We should meekly go along with the Lord's theocratic organization and wait for  further clarification, rather than balk at the first mention of a thought unpalatable to us and proceed to quibble and mouth our criticisms and opinions as though they were worth more than the slave's provision of spiritual food. Theocratic ones will appreciate the Lord's visible organization and not be so foolish as to pit against Jehovah's channel their own human reasoning and sentiment and personal feelings.'

'Now some may ask,
Should we accept as from the Lord and true the food provided through the discreet slave, or should we withhold acceptance until we have proved it for ourselves? If we have gained our present understanding of the Bible by feeding at the table set by the slave, if we have been thereby freed from false doctrines and built up in the clean and undefiled worship of God and given a new world hope, we should have some confidence in the slave's provisions. After being nourished to our present spiritual strength and maturity, do we suddenly become smarter than our former provider and forsake the enlightening guidance of the organization that mothered us? "Forsake not the law of thy mother." (Prov. 6:20-23) And if the heavenly Father would not give a stone or serpent or scorpion to a child who asked for bread or fish or an egg from him, are we to take the spiritual food he provides through the slave into our hands as if we were going' to be bruised by a stone or bitten by a serpent or stung by a scorpion? (Matt. 7:7-11; Luke 11:9-13, NW) Are we to be doubtful and suspicious about each new provision? "He who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven by the wind and blown about. In fact, let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from Jehovah." (Jas. 1:6, 7, NW) Even the Beroeans first received Paul's preaching "with the greatest readiness of mind", and then went to "carefully examining the Scriptures daily as to whether these things were so". (Acts 17:11, NW) This was the first real contact the Beroeans had with Paul's preaching, yet they received it readily and then studied the Scriptural support for themselves. How much more readily we can receive the slave's provisions with confidence, since, unlike the Beroeans, we have much past experience with the precious provisions from the slave. Af ter receiving these food supplies we prove their Scripturalness for ourselves to make the message our own, in a spirit of meekness and trustfulness and not combativeness.'

But it is easy to recognise their incredible gall when they can accuse other Jehovah's Witnesses of something they are utterly guilty of:

These speculating ones may acknowledge that some of their past theories were wrong, but they do not show they have learned the lesson from these mistakes ...'.

The problem with the WBTS statement '
we prove their Scripturalness for ourselves to make the message our own' can only be seen when the errors in calculations and assumptions made by the WBTS are known - and the average Jehovah's Witness will not have the knowledge or desire to be able to disprove their claims.

The WBTS make it perfectly clear to all Jehovah's Witnesses that you are to accept whatever they say - the mark of all cult leaders!

Returning to the Papal Roman Catholic Church for a moment - this is the opinion of two popes:

It is beyond question that he [the pope]
can err even in matters touching the faith. He does this when he teaches heresy by his own judgment or decretal. In truth, many Roman Pontiffs were heretics. (Pope Adrian VI, 1523 AD)

'Every cleric must obey the Pope,
even if he commands what is evil; for no one may judge the Pope.' (Pope Innocent III, 1198-1216)

It becomes clear, when you read the WBTS writings in depth, that the Governing Body at Brooklyn share exactly the same evil nature as the biggest 'Christian cult' in the world - Papal Rome!

In these Watchtower magazines (March 15, 1954, p1 and May 15, 1955, p163) we read that the 'anointed Christian remnant among Jehovah's Witnesses' of the WBTS claimed to be 'Jehovah' God's 'collective channel of communication' and to make up the "faithful & discreet slave" appointed to give spiritual "food at the proper time."

Anyone accepting such fatuous claims will have to believe that 'Jehovah' wants believers to receive false prophecies and false doctrines!

The Watchtower, February 15, 1955, p124 - the WBTS were not shy about claiming to be the 'one right religion' - and they even insisted that 'It is not conceited for us to say that'.

Not that the WBTS have ever shown signs of being conceited!

The Watchtower, October 15, 1958, p613:  "'Sometime between April 15 and 23, 1957, Armageddon will sweep the world! Millions of persons will perish in its flames and the land will be scorched.' So prophesied a certain California pastor, Mihran Ask, in January, 1957.  Such false prophets tend to put the subject of Armageddon in disrepute."

Strange that the WBTS do not know that, when you point the finger at others, there are three fingers pointing back at you

We know about the many false prophecies of the WBTS - but who is Mihran Ask - a man who definitely falsely prophesied once?  Both are inexcusable, but to point the finger in this manner when you are as guilty as the WBTS are is utterly hypocritical and un-Christ-like!

The Watchtower, January 15, 1959, p40-41 - the WBTS somehow forget their past history of 100% prophetic failure and write:

'Who have answered the call to the work and have done it down till this year 1958?  Whom has God actually used as his prophet?'

Again they do not even put the word (prophet) in italics and openly show how they viewed themselves as they boast about their supposed work for God!

And 'the plain facts show' WHAT!?  That 'Jehovah thrust out his hand of power and touched their lips and put his words in their mouths'?

In 1959 - and in many different ways throughout their history - the WBTS clearly claim that God 'put his words in their mouths'.

Later we will see how they use weasel words to try and deny that they ever prophesied by claiming that 'in their eagerness for Jesus' second coming,
[Jehovah's Witnesses] have suggested dates that turned out to be incorrect. Because of this, some have called them false prophets. Never in these instances, however, did they presume to originate predictions 'in the name of Jehovah.' Never did they say, 'These are the words of Jehovah.'  (ref. Awake!, March 22, 1993, p4)

As we can all see, writing 'Jehovah ... put his words in their mouths' is exactly the same as 'These are the words of Jehovah'!

Know the reality of eternity in heaven by believing on Jesus Christ as your Lord & Saviour!
