Default Jehovahs Witnesses PROOF OF FALSE PROPHECY

JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES TRACK RECORD OF ACTUAL STATEMENTS PULLED OUT OF THE WATCHTOWER. Amazing that none of the actual events happened. More information is found at JW Files - Research on Jehovah's Witnesses / Watchtower

This is for all those who have stated that "some ex-JW's are too caught up on dates of the past." This is also for those who have claimed that "ex-JW's just keep focusing on the dates." And for those who say "Why do you keep 'bashing' Jehovah's Witnesses? Leave them alone!"

I will continue my mission of exploiting the JW's past. If you don't want to read it, please feel free not to. In my opinion though, it's better to know THE REAL TRUTH. The following contains NO OPINION WHATSOEVER. IT IS ALL DIRECT QUOTES TAKEN OUT OF THE WATCHTOWER.

UNBELIEVABLE!

They predicted the following dates as the battle of Armageddon:
  1. Zion’s Wt, 1/15/1892, pg 1355, reprint .. “battle” is definitely marked in Scripture as October, 1914.
  2. The Time is at Hand, 1908, pg 101 ....the “battle of the great day of God Almighty” (Rev.16:14) which will end in A.D. 1914, with the complete overthrow of earth’s present rulership, is already commenced.
  3. The Finished Mystery, 1917, pg 398, 399, 485 the people who are the strength of Christendom shall be cut off in the brief but terribly eventful period beginning in 1918 A.D. A third part are “burned with fire in the mist of the city.” .....After 1918 the people supporting churchianity will cease to be its, supporters, be destroyed as adherents,...Also in the year 1918, when God destroys the churches wholesale and the church members by the millions.
  4. Vindication 1, 1931, pg 146, 338, 339[/SIZE][SIZE=2] ....years 1914,1918 and 1925 ..... they also learned to quit fixing dates for the future and predicting what would come to pass on certain dates...
  5. Informant, May 1940The year 1940 is certain to be the most important year yet because Armageddon is very near.
  6. Wt, 9/15/1941, pg 288 in the remaining months before Armageddon.
  7. Wt, 5/1/1968, pg 273 Chart of dates 1975 end of 6th 1000-year day...2975 end of 7th 1000-year day..
  8. Aw, 1/22/1969, pg 16 Other Bible prophecies clearly foretell God’s purpose to bring this wicked system to an end in a few years.
  9. Aw, 5/22/1969, pg 15 *****If you are a young person, you also need to face the fact that you will never grow old in this present system of things. .....all evidence in fulfillment of Bible prophecy indicates that this corrupt system is due to end in a few years. ....as a young person you will never fulfill any career that this system offers. If you are in high school and thinking about a college education, it means at least four, perhaps even six or eight more years to graduate into a specialized career. But where will this system of things be by that time? It will be well on the way toward its finish, if not actually gone*********
  10. Wt, 10/15/1969, pg 622, 623....seventh millennium from man’s creation by Jehovah God would begin in less than ten years.
  11. The Nations Shall Know That I Am Jehovah, 1971, pg 216 Shortly, within our twentieth century, the "battle in the day if Jehovah" will begin against modern antitype of Jerusalem, Christendom.
  12. Wt, 1/1/1989, pg 12 The apostle Paul was spearheading the Christian missionary activity. He was also laying a foundation for a work that would be completed in our 20th century. (This quote was later changed in the WT bound volume to: He was also laying a foundation for a work that would be completed in our day
  13. In 1995 the generation of 1914 that would not pass away has changed to a contemporary generation.
They blamed other religions for setting dates and called them false prophets.
  1. Light 1930, pg 47 They have been prophesying particularly since 1918, and everyone knows that their prophecies to date have not come to pass; and that alone is strong evidence that they are false prophets
  2. Wt, 10/15/1958, pg 613 “Sometime between April 15 and 23, 1957, Armageddon will sweep the World!...” So prophesied a certain Californiapastor Mihran Ask, in January 1957.....Such false prophets tend to..
  3. Aw, 10/8/1968, pg23 ...those in times past who predicted an “end of the world”, even announcing a specific date...they were guilty of false prophesying
  4. Paradise Restored 1972, pg 353,354 Jehovah, the God of the true prophets, will put all false prophets to shame either by not fulfilling the false prediction of such self-assuming prophets or by having his own prophecies fulfilled in a way opposite to that predicted by the false prophets. False prophets will try to hide who they really are.
  5. Wt, 6/15/1974, pg 381 Similarly the “false prophet” is not a person, but is a system or an organization. A “prophet” claims to have inspired information for the direction of others.
  6. Aw, 12/8/1981, pg 14, Since the Bible speaks about only “one faith,” All of today’s religious groups outside the one true faith must, according to this standard, be counterfeits, composite, “false prophets"

Romans 10:2 they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge (zeal for God cannot save a person if it is not based on the knowledge of the righteousness that comes from God)

You could find the same sort of history of any religious group. I don't think it's fair to pick out one group such as the JW's when every other religion is guilty of exactly the same thing. In the last couple of thousand years there have been many incidents in which believers from many sects gave away their possessions and loitered on hilltops waiting for the end of the world only to have to pack up and go back home when nothing happened (if they hadn't already given it away).

Google the definition of religion, that will help you a lot.

JW are funny cause they are wrong and they know it... Like Michael Jackson and the Never Never Land Ranch. Although people tell Michael that he isn't a child and show him a mirror, Michael continues to play out his fantasy of being a child at the never never land ranch (did it get sold cause he went bankrupt?)

MORE INFO FROM THE EARLY WATCHTOWERS:

1798-99 "Napoleon began this Egyptian campaign in 1798, finished it and returned to France on October 1, 1799. The campaign is briefly, yet graphically, described in the prophecy, verses 40 to 44 (Daniel 11:40-44); and being completed in 1799 marks, according to the Prophet's own words, the beginning of the 'time of the end'" {THOG 228-9, CREA 293}


1799 "Twelve hundred and sixty years from 539 A.D. brings us to 1799, which is another proof that 1799 definitely marks the beginning of 'the time of the end'. This also shows that it is from the date 539 A.D. that the other prophetic days of Daniel must be counted." {CREA 294}


1799 "'The time of the end' embraces a period from 1799 A.D." {THOG 236}


1799 "The time of the end is from 1799.." {WT Nov 1 1922 333/346}


1799 "The indisputable facts, therefore, show that the "time of the end" began in 1799 .." {WT Mar 1 1922}


1799 "THE 'Time of the End,' a period of one hundred and fifteen (115) years, from A.D. 1799 to A.D. 1914, is particularly marked in the Scriptures.. Though our information pointing out the date of this period is furnished in Daniel's prophecy, we know that he understood nothing at all concerning it, as he said: 'I heard, but I understood not.' (Dan. 12:8).....We have thus shown that 1799 began the period called the Time of the End; that in this time Papacy is to be consumed piece-meal" {TKIC 23-4/48/59}




1840 "We need not here repeat the evidences that the 'seventh trump' began its sounding A.D. 1840, and will continue until the end of the time of trouble" {ZWT Nov 1880 1}


1846 "We have marked, too, the fixed dates to which the Prophet Daniel calls attention. The 2,300 days point to 1846 as the time when God's sanctuary would be cleansed of the defiling errors and principles of Papacy; and we have noted the cleansing there accomplished."{TKIC 305-6}


1872 "We are already living in the seventh millennium - since October 1872." {TIAH 1915 ed 363}


1872 "Six thousand Years from Adam ended in A.D. 1872." {DHMB 6 from end}


1873 "If, then, the seventh thousand-year period of earth's history be an epoch specially noted as the period of Christ's reign, we shall, by showing that it began in A.D. 1873, be proving that we are already in it." {TIAH 1915 ed 39-40} (Time is At Hand Book)


1874 "The Scriptures show that the second presence [of the Lord] was due in 1874 .. This proof shows that the Lord has been present since 1874.


1874 The next chapter will present Bible evidence that 1874 A.D. was the exact date of the beginning of the 'Times of Restitution,' and hence of our Lord's return."


1874 "The Lord did not come in 1844, and the world was not burned up with fire .. this was a great disappointment to those 'holy people' who had so confidently looked for Christ ('Michael') then to appear and to exalt them with him in power and glory.


1874 "We have no doubt whatever in regard to the chronology relating to the dates of 1874 .." {WT May 15 1922 150}


1874 "The Scriptural proof is that the second presence of the Lord Jesus Christ began in 1874 A.D." {PROP 65}


1874 [Significance of this date was proven by measurements of the Tabernacle] {WT May 15 1919 159}


1880 "A truth presented by Satan himself is just as true as a truth stated by God .. Accept truth wherever you find it, no matter what it contradicts, and rely for ability to afterwards harmonize it with others upon "the spirit of truth, which shall guide you into all truth," {WR Jan 1880 8-9}
