No Comment - Let the Watchtower Speak


THE ONLY ONES PREACHING
Why can you be confident that Jehovah’s Witnesses are preaching the right message? Jesus preached “the good news of the kingdom,” and he expects his disciples to do the same. What group of people are preaching that message in “all the nations”? The answer is obvious – only Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Watchtower – May 15, 2016, p9 par6


THE MESSAGE
… those Witnesses were speaking in unity, as true Christians should. (1 Cor. 1:10) And they were echoing the message contained in The Watchtower Announcing Jehovah’s Kingdom.

FUTURE SECOND COMING
Only the 144,000 members of God’s congregation under their Head Christ Jesus will gain life in the spirit realm; … at his second coming and the establishment, earth-wide, of God’s kingdom under him, for which kingdom he taught his disciples to pray.
Watchtower – May 15, 1954, p300

PAST SECOND COMING
Although keeping in expectation was appropriate for Christians living centuries ago, it is particularly important for us. Why? Because we are living during Christ’s presence. The sign of his presence has been in evidence since 1914.
Watchtower – August  15, 2015, p15 par5

SECOND COMING = PRESENCE
This official presence begins with his second coming. According to the “sign” that Jesus foretold and also according to certain Bible time measurements, his invisible “presence,” or parousia, began in autumn of 1914 C.E.—Matt. 24:3.

FUTURE PRESENCE
Incorruptibleness as well as immortality is a future reward that is to be bestowed upon faithful Christians at their resurrection from the dead. The apostle showed that this resurrection and putting on of incorruptibleness and immortality was not to take place at death but at the second coming and presence of Jesus Christ when he raises his faithful followers from the dead.
Watchtower – September 1, 1955, p539 par50

PAST PRESENCE
Bible prophecy shows that God’s heavenly Kingdom was established when Christ’s presence began in 1914.
Watchtower – November 15, 2015, p20 par18

PRESENT KINGDOM
… after God’s Kingdom was established,  there would be a rapid deterioration of world conditions—war, food shortage, pestilence, and other causes of death. … since 1914, food shortages continue to threaten world security. Furthermore, who can deny that all kinds of pestilences, natural disasters, and other ‘deadly plagues’ continue to cut down millions of victims each year? The scope, frequency, and severity of these events are unprecedented in human history.

FUTURE KINGDOM
Revelation 20:12 foretells that “scrolls” will be opened in those days, providing additional light of understanding from which the resurrected ones will benefit. Sadly, some will refuse to be healed, even in Paradise. These rebels are the ones ‘given to the salt’ of everlasting destruction.
