Jehovah`s Witness/Death of the Harlot

Advertisement


Question
QUESTION: This last WT study sure has a buzz of excitement going though my congregation.

One older brother(83)and long time elder commented that "...if the slave put this in the Watchtower, the Jehovah already HAS planted it the beasts hear to destroy false religion."

For the Harlot to die suddenly implies a lot of advance planning by the beast. The Catholic church alone has had 1,500 years to amass its holdings, and its tax-exempt status means that identifying all those holdings will be difficult.

But "suddenly" means that the beast will say something like "we HAVE done this", and not "we are GOING to do this". False religion still has its adherents; they cannot be forewarned.

The very idea of sudden means that the beast is very likely using this time right now to identify and prepare to seize the Harlots means of existence.

Governments worldwide are broke: trillions in debt. False religion is worth much, much more, and is increasingly irrelevant in the world. Do the math. The beast is.

Time is very, very short.

ANSWER:
Hello my dear brother

Thanks for writing.

Sorry for the delay I'm usually reasonably quick on allexperts. I've just had so much on at the minute that my time has been limited, however I've manouvered things today so I can spend an hour or two on here.

Yes there's some interesting points you bring out and the Watchtower brings out. I know for a fact the UN have had in their minds about false religions destruction for at least three years.

When I was working in London once about three yeas ago I spoke to a fella who worked for the UN. The conversation was along these lines. I was giving him a witness and the subject of false religion came up (wars,bombings etc),I told him we believed she would be destroyed at some time in the future(or words to that affect) His reply always sticks in my mind, he said to me "How did you know that" (goose bumps then mate ,believe me) I said "it's in the Bible" he said "Well you keep believing that it's only a matter of time" So it's in their thoughts as we speak.

It kind of reminds me of this event here

Ezra

1 "And in the first year of Cyrus the king of Persia, that Jehovah’s word from the mouth of Jeremiah might be accomplished, Jehovah roused the spirit of Cyrus the king of Persia so that he caused a cry to pass through all his realm, and also in writing"

Now what we now about the Medo-Persians is they had a fairly lenient policy ,religious tolerance, releasing captive nations(things of that note), so when Babylon got destroyed that thought was always in their mind,however what we see here is when it became time to act Jehovah moved Cyrus to act and act he did.

When it's Jehovah's time he will do the same and the Great tribulation begins!!

So Bro exciting times indeed and we need to keep alert

Matt 24:

43 "But know one thing, that if the householder had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have kept awake and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44 On this account YOU too prove yourselves ready, because at an hour that YOU do not think to be it, the Son of man is coming"

At an hour you do not think it be. That's the easiest time to fall asleep,no doubt.

Anyway thanks for writing and as I said sorry about the delay.

Keep strong!!

---------- FOLLOW-UP ----------

QUESTION: Eight or nine years ago there was a move afoot at the UN for a resolution stating that freedom FROM religion is as important as freedom from religion.

It was sponsored by an American atheist group, who even has a website. Once the knowledge of this wanna-be resolution hit the web, it died, and that groups website vanished.

I had printed out a screenshot of that webpage, and it was interesting reading. Like reading a composite of Daniel and Revelation.

So it's quite possible this has been in the works even longer. Like I originally said, there will have to be a ton of behind the scenes work in advance to make the sudden destruction a reality.

Answer
Absolutely Bro.

Back then I was out of the truth and I was off acting completely stupid, so I know you'll have a better idea than me about that.

But like you say it's only logical to think they've been working on it a long time.

Like you say will it be the money issues ?? it's possible, more likely probable I would say, we'll have to wait and see, but what we do know is this.

Right now this is happening in Babylon the great

Rev 16:

12 "And the sixth one poured out his bowl upon the great river Eu·phra′tes, and its water was dried up, that the way might be prepared for the kings from the rising of the sun"

Rev 17:

15 "And he says to me: “The waters that you saw, where the harlot is sitting, mean peoples and crowds and nations and tongues"

Water's are drying, people are leaving!!

Whereas this is happening to us

Micah 4:

4 "And it must occur in the final part of the days [that] the mountain of the house of Jehovah will become firmly established above the top of the mountains, and it will certainly be lifted up above the hills; and to it peoples must stream"

People are streaming in. How many will get in before Babylon falls??

Dunno but PREACH,PREACH,PREACH let's go and save some lives!!

Expertise

I have many years of experience serving Jehovah . I have known Jehovah a long time and I have known his organization . I have been privileged to see great progress not only in my own personal relationship with my God and Father but within his organization. I am an avid reader of the bible and have been gifted by my Father with the indescribable privilege of being allowed to understand his own word.

Experience

The truth is all about scripture and logic. The two go hand in hand . There is not one bible verse that cannot be understood within the realms of human reasoning. Not one!! Why would it?? The bible is God's message to his creation . His creation who he made to understand things in a specific way. God is not stupid or unwise as to leave as a message then allow us to guess what it means or who he is. 1 Tim 2:3This is fine and acceptable in the sight of our Savior, God, 4whose will is that all sorts of people should be saved and come to an accurate knowledge of truth" Notice the expression "accurate knowledge".

Organizations
The bible leaves signs of true christianity there are many. Jehovah's witnesses meet every single sign. One sign is the removal of false teachings that permeated the world soon after the apostles died. Jesus foretold this and he also foretold of the restoration of pure worship in the period known as the last days. The days we are currently living in. Jesus was a master of using illustrations he used an illustration to highlight this point Matt 13: "The Kingdom of the heavens may be likened to a man who sowed fine seed in his field. 25While men were sleeping, his enemy came and oversowed weeds in among the wheat and left. 26When the stalk sprouted and produced fruit, then the weeds also appeared. 27So the slaves of the master of the house came and said to him, ‘Master, did you not sow fine seed in your field? How, then, does it have weeds?’ 28He said to them, ‘An enemy, a man, did this.’ The slaves said to him, ‘Do you want us, then, to go out and collect them?’ 29He said, ‘No, for fear that while collecting the weeds, you uproot the wheat with them. 30Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the harvest season, I will tell the reapers: First collect the weeds and bind them in bundles to burn them up; then gather the wheat into my storehouse" Why did he speak in illustrations? Matt 13:10So the disciples came and said to him: “Why do you speak to them by the use of illustrations?” 11In reply he said: “To you it is granted to understand the sacred secrets of the Kingdom of the heavens, but to them it is not granted" The kingdom of the heavens is full of sacred secrets that Jesus reveals only to his followers. This privilege is open to all who are really willing to submit to God and his Christ in action not just in words. These are the ones God is looking for. Are you really one?? If so I encourage you to let Jehovah's witnesses show you what the Bible really teaches.

Education/Credentials
False religion is disgusting to God and to his true worshippers it is likened in the Bible to a harlot Rev 17:"I will show you the judgment upon the great harlot who sits on many waters, 2with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, whereas those who inhabit the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication" Whereas the bride of Christ is likened to a virgin Rev 14: 4"These are the ones who did not defile themselves with women; in fact, they are virgins" These are both used as spiritual terms here and show the importance of pure and clean worship for God's people.
