WBTS False Prophecies - and the Lying Cover-ups! - 7

How many different deceptions are used by the WBTS?  To hide their false prophecy that 1918 would see God destroy the churches wholesale and the church members by millions ( ... the downfall of "Christianity") they altered the wording in their reprint of the 1926 Edition of 'The Finished Mystery'!

The Watchtower, September 1, 1914 - the WBTS admitted that it was 'purely speculation to attempt to say just when' Armageddon would begin.  But they were wrong - as with every other false prophecy.

Watchtower literature claimed that the second coming of Christ occurred in 1874;

Later Watchtower literature claimed that it occurred in 1914;

Christ was supposedly returning visibly then, when He did not return,  it was to be an invisible presence which began in 1874;

Armageddon had supposedly begun in 1874, and would finish in 1914.

Now Armageddon is said to have started in 1914, with the outbreak of World War I.

But the events from 1874 to 1914 - and beyond - never began to fit the Biblical description of Armageddon;

In 1914 the Gentile nations and the churches of Christendom were to be destroyed;

But, in 1914, the 'Armageddon' of the WBTS hadn't finished - and was then claimed to be continuing into 1916.

Do true prophets of God change their minds like this?  Scripture says 'No'!

But behaviour like this fits the description of false prophets (Matthew 7:15-23)


The Watchtower Reprints, April 1, 1915, p5659:  "The Battle of Armageddon, to which the 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."

The Watchtower, September 1, 1916 (Reprints, p5951) - sadly, the WBTS 'eyes of understanding' failed to accept or understand that they were prophesying falsely (about 1918 now!) and 'Messiah's kingdom' still failed to materialize (except in the minds of the deceived).

- what happened to the WBTS claim that:

'
Until 1878 the nominal church had been in a sense God's sanctuary or Temple; but He was from then on, culminating in 1918, to remove it with a stroke or plague of erroneous doctrines and deeds Divinely permitted.'

The 'nominal church' - as defined by the WBTS - mainly consists of Papal Rome and the 'Protestant' denominations.

Both of these groups continue to exist way beyond 1918 and, to this day, have not been removed '
with a stroke or plague of erroneous doctrines and deeds Divinely permitted ' but continue relatively unchanged while the record of the WBTS reveals a moronic stumbling from one false interpretation of Scripture to another (we will supply examples of their many doctrinal and factual errors later)!

Studies in the Scriptures, Series VII, 'The Finished Mystery', 1917 Edition, p485 - the WBTS foolishly crowed that survivors would have to read Russell's books 'to learn the meaning of the downfall of Christianity', but this was yet another false prophecy!

And to compound the evil of their false prophecy, in
the 1917 Edition they wrote:

'
in the year 1918, when God destroys the churches wholesale and the church members by millions ... the downfall of "Christianity"'

Fortunately the WBTS had an easy solution to the problem of covering up so that future Jehovah's Witnesses would remain ignorant of their true nature by altering this page in
the 1926 Edition (see next page) from:

'when God destroys the churches wholesale and the church members by millions
'

to

'when God
begins to destroy the churches and the church members by millions'

It is only the devil and demons who lie ceaselessly and revel in the destruction of 'millions' of people!
