Jehovah`s Witness/40 Days and the Window in Noah's Day


QUESTION: Hi Bro Rando......

I hope all is well with you. During my bible reading this morning I discovered that in Gen 6:8 it mentions a 40 day period after the mountain tops were visible.  I know that this would be some sort of testing period.  I have just never noticed this 40 day period before.  I am also aware that the window and the opening for the illumination was one in the same.  What to you think the significance of this time period is, why was it necessary and is there application for us today?  Thoughts?  You can make this public only if you would like.

ANSWER: Hello Sister, I hope you and your family are safe and your ministry is going well.  I know that you are a very zealous sister!  The number "40" can be associated with a cleansing, purification, and or testing.  The "40" here mentions days and not nights as in the same "time pattern" Jesus spent with his disciples after his Resurrection in the Book of Acts.  But in this manner, this time period was used in "refinement".

We see that in (Gen 8:6) the scriptures states: "So at the end of 40 days, Noah opened the window that he had made in the ark."  Then something interesting happens as Noah waited on Jehovah.  In verse 10 we read: "He waited seven more days, and once again he sent out the dove from the ark." and again in verse 12 we see: "He waited still another seven days. Then he sent out the dove, but it did not return to him anymore."

Noah still waited on Jehovah and was not presumptious in leaving the Ark but "removed the covering of the ark and saw that the surface of the ground was drying." (Genesis 8:13)

Yet, Noah and his family did not act presumptively and leave the Ark but waited on Jehovah.  "In the second month, on the 27th day of the month, the earth had dried off.  God now said to Noah: “Go out of the ark, you, your wife, your sons, and your sons’ wives.  Bring out with you all the living creatures of every sort of flesh, of the flying creatures and of the animals and of all the creeping animals of the earth, that they may multiply on the earth and be fruitful and become many on the earth." (Genesis 8:14-17)

There are many parallels one can draw from this historic event, that "waiting on" Jehovah means Salvation.  Even after the time of 40 days have expired, like Noah we should wait on Jehovah and be busy in the Lord's Work.  

"You see that a man is to be declared righteous by works and not by faith alone." (James 2:24)  We should not leave our "Interior Rooms" prematurely but rather continue your ministry {works} until the order is given to stop by God's Organization.  So when 2015 comes and goes. YOU continue working without letup.  No matter what others on the outside say!  Do not believe the demonic lies that will engulf the world.  Keep Walking....remember Lot's wife.

Take Care and Philia!!

QUESTION: Hi Brother,

Thank you so much for your kindness.  As you know me and my family are about to embark on an exciting full time ministry where the need is greater.  We are in the process of selling everything we own so we will be unencumbered in our "Interior Rooms".  Time frame is early this summer and we cannot wait.  We will ALWAYS wait on Jehovah as he has invited us on his road.  We will "keep walking" and will not have possessions to focus on.  Nothing but the ministry as we will all be full time.  I want you to know that our little group was a big part of how we got there so some good really did come out of it.

On another note, I wanted you to know that a real brother from the writing committee came and spoke in our congregation just last Saturday and Sunday.  You will be interested to know that he confirmed our research regarding the tree of knowledge of good and bad when he stated from the platform that Jehovah would have allowed the eating from that tree AFTER his (Adam's) test was complete. Saturday's talk was about how people in the world think that they have freedom, freedom to do as they choose.  He wisely pointed out that the world as a whole is under more surveillance than ever before in the history of the world.  The more immoral the more they are choked by their freedoms.  Contrast that with the freedoms that Jehovhah's Witnesses enjoy.  We do not have to watch our things in the Kingdom Hall.  We can trust our children to our brothers and sisters.  We have family world wide that would lay down their lives for each and every one of us whether we had met them before or not.  Why?  Because we love one another just as the bible prophesied.

(Galatians 6:10) . . .Really, then, as long as we have time favorable for it, let us work what is good toward all, but especially toward those related to [us] in the faith.

So just know that me and mine are listening.....and applying, now and forever.

Sis TW

You know Sister, when I left all things behind for the sake of the good news, it was not an easy thing.  Then struggling from day to day, and living from hand to mouth.  Jehovah is my Provider and I never wanted for anything.  The 2014 Watchtowers are revealing even more information and they are so so very specific.  I am so excited and enthused from the Blessings Jehovah as granted me.  I know for a fact {{Sister}} that Jehovah has your back.

As we are getting even closer to announcing the Great Tribulation, the "World" will sneer and laugh thinking we are simply joking with them until the moment they encircle us thinking that they will exterminate us, then Armageddon, the War to end all wars will remove the wicked.  Really, we have no need to feel sorry for those who mock Jehovah's Sovereignty.  After all, they been warned over and over again.  

The work you are doing is about saving lives.  The ministry you have, has been given to you.  What a wonderful Privilege for you and your Family.  You are Approved By JEHOVAH.  Protect your Personal Relationship with your very LIFE!

"the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:7)

A Prayer has been offered up for you and your Family.  Yes! was the answer.
Take Care,

Brother Rando


Brother Rando is a student of Prophecy and one of Jehovah's Witnesses in good standing with the Faithful and Discreet slave. His interests are directed towards how the time of the end would come about. The earth’s population today is going through a physical, spiritual and emotional tribulation that has been prophesied concerning a time of distress as it enters into a cleansing period of removing wickedness by means of God’s Kingdom. (Daniel 12:1) Brother Rando’s discussions are of keen interest to many who await for God's Kingdom. He asserts that his discussions are just that, and not Prophecies, nor does he make the claim to be inspired. His authority is the Bible. He proclaims the year 2034 to be of very high interest to all. Like a GPS, that gives Insight to location, 2034 allows us to gauge where we are in the stream of time according to God’s Will. According to Brother Rando, the Bible carries two thoughts in it’s passages, one is fleshy and the other is spiritual. Jesus Christ warned Peter of thinking fleshy and that this type of thinking is not from God. (Matthew 16:23) In order to measure time, a method of measurement is needed. Measuring time by “the day” would mean a 24 hour period. However, measuring “the day” spiritually would mean a period of time yet to be revealed using other scripture to interpret the method needed. By looking into the Bible, we can actually determine what God meant by “the day” when looking into his Word on how his Will would come about. As we read (Genesis 2:16-17) the punishment for disobedience was death “in the day”. As time went on, the scriptures do begin to reveal the time frame of “the day”. According to Genesis 5:5, Adam lived 930 years and then he died. Satan who thinks like a man, got it wrong! (Genesis 3:4-5) Why Study the Bible


In Brother Rando’s research of the Bible, he found scripture does interpret other scripture. The answer to how long a day was, according to God’s Will was found in Psalms 90:4 and 2 Peter 3:8. This is vital to gaining understanding in how we are to measure time in God’s view. Spiritually and not fleshy or physical. A day in heavens time is a thousand years to us. It’s by this method we can measure time and where we are in the stream of time of the end. In answer Jesus said to them: “Break down this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” (John 2:19) Was Jesus indicating that he was the Temple of God, God’s Kingdom? And that the temple would in fact be destroyed or broken down? According to God’s Word, the following scripture is the basis for Salvation. “For if you publicly declare that ‘word in your own mouth,’ that Jesus is Lord, and exercise faith in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9) In order for John 2:19 and Romans 10:9 to come in line, did Jesus utter a prophecy about God's Kingdom since he stated, “I will raise it up”? IF the basis for salvation is that Jesus is Lord and that God raised him up. We can conclude that Jesus did not raise himself up, but it was God that raised him from the dead since he was dead and conscious of nothing at all. (Ecc 9:5) Jesus prophesied that HE would raise God's Kingdom. (Rev 5:10) Jesus was speaking prophetically of raising the temple within the third day of a thousand years. Jesus warned Peter not to think the thoughts of man. (Matthew 16:23) Based on 2 Peter 3:8 we are able to determine the time frame to when God’s Kingdom would be raised up by Jesus Christ. Jesus was put to death on Nisan 14, 33CE. The two days would actually represent two thousand years and we come up with the year 2033. Jesus stated,“in three days I will raise it up.” So the third day is upon us in 2034.

“I fully support, acknowledge and cooperate with *The Faithful Steward and Its' Governing Body* of Jehovah’s Witnesses.” I am property of the "Faithful and Discreet Slave" that Jesus, my brother, is appointing over his belongings. This Slave is the Governing Body of Jehovah's Earthly Organization known Worldwide as "Jehovah's Witnesses". When the Mountain-like organizations act against God's chosen people after Babylon has been destroyed, Jehovah will slaughter those who are touching the pupils of his eyes. Even though Babylon the Great is spoken as a woman and she has fallen in (Rev. 14:8), the sacred secret is that she is not a woman at all, but the World of False Religion that will be utterly destroyed by the personal hand of Jesus Christ as (King Abaddon) in the coming Great Tribulation never to be found again! (Matthew 24:14)

Secular Historians point to the Temple in Jerusalem being destroyed in 70 AD by the Romans. But was Jesus Christ speaking in a physical sense since that Temple is non-existent today? Jehovah Witnesses assert that Jesus under inspiration of Holy Spirit was actually prophesying about his spiritual body as the only means to approach his Heavenly Father. (John 14:6) Not the Temple made by hands or his fleshy body as Christendom claims, but his spiritual body, known as the Body of Christ. (1 Cor 12:27) This would actually be the Collective Representative of God’s Kingdom in how we can approach the One True God JEHOVAH. Brother Rando is not the first to come up with this time frame. In the first part of 1914, the Bible Students known as International Bible Students Association discussed the “time of trouble” on the printed page called The Bible Students Monthly. Early in 1914, an issue of The Bible Students Monthly was issued with the large bold heading “END OF WORLD IN 1914? Some have quoted the large headline of this tract as proof that Russell was expecting the “end of the world” in 1914. However, such neglect the subheading under the larger headline, which states: “NOT THE VIEW OF PASTOR RUSSELL NOR OF I.B.S.A.” International Bible Students Association: "Nevertheless, when viewed from God’s standpoint, we are still “shortly after” 1914. Although Russell himself did not think the time of trouble would be this long, he did allow that it could be. It is possible that the time allotted for this period is 120 years (1914+120=2034), but that these days will be “cut short” some time before they are allowed to reach their end. We do not put this forth as a “prophecy”, nor would we feel anything was wrong if 2034 came and went and nothing had happened as far the full binding of Satan and the destruction of his empire is concerned. All things are in God’s hands."

According to the discussion, 1914 represents the year that the earth would enter into a time of distress and that time limit could very well be 120 years. Which again, brings up the year 2034. The year 1914 is derived by a prophecy of the end of the Gentile times. Brother Rando insists that we should not live by a date, but to use this time to get right with God. Jesus continually pointed that the people who were on the earth when he would raise God’s Temple would be like those people in Noah’s time, taking no note. Where do the 120 years come from? If we read Genesis 6:3, most people think of this scripture in the fleshy sense of man’s lifespan. But could there be a spiritual meaning, giving those with Insight a divine warning? The Bible does say, “make secret the words and seal up the book, until the time of [the] end.” (Daniel 12:4) Could it be, this world has entered into it’s Last Days in 1914? (1 Timothy 3:1-5) Yet there is another scripture that helps us measure the time. In Ecclesiastes 6:6 it reads, “Even supposing that he has lived a thousand years twice over and yet he has not seen what is good, is it not to just one place that everyone is going?” The chapter talks about vanity and that if a person actually lived two thousand years without God’s Kingdom we are all heading to the same place. Since death was the punishment, we would need God’s Kingdom to conquer death, the place we all are heading. A thousand years twice over is two thousand years. Simple math again brings us to the time of 2034, when the second thousand years has been brought to it’s finish. Could Christ Millennial reign be from 2034 to 3034? We don’t know. Jesus stated, he would raise God’s Temple in the third day, so we can expect God's Kingdom to be fully operating sometime between the years 2034 and 3034. However, Jesus Christ was risen first thing on the very morning in the third day. Most Bible readers are in agreement that Christ does rule for a thousand years.

Awards and Honors
Armageddon is the actual cleansing of the earth from all wickedness. If in the literal sense, it would consist of angels coming down from heaven to bring death to all those rejecting the Kingdom of God. But if it is spiritual, Armageddon could very will take place without the knowledge that it is actually occurring. If this is the case, then Armageddon would commence without the knowledge that the wicked are simply dying off. There seems to be evidence in scripture to how God destroyed the forefather’s in the wilderness. They died off in the wilderness at the hand of the destroyer without knowing of such, as Paul eloquently explains in 1 Corinthians 10:1-10. If.....
