Question
Brother Stewart here Bro DW
As you well know Iam the main contributors to the speculation of the GT next year along with our dearly departed Bro G who by the way I was very sorry to see leave this site but I still read here as I cant get out much anymore due to my age and I enjoyed Brother G very much as he and I were on the same wave link with this date.This is my first thread since Bro G left as I haven't seen anything I wanted to comment on until reading Brother Eddie G thread on the King of the North and how he doesn't exist now or we dont know who he is.The watchtower hasn't had undated info on this subject since the early 90s as to the King of the North.My thought in reading the thread was this,if the great tribulation is really next October like bro G and many others think then this King must be here now and engaging in a pushing with the King of the south the U.S.A.right now.My point is simply this ,if the 40 year pattern,the lunar eclipses all are pointing to October 1st 2014 then all other end time scriptures should be lined up as well,either the GT is next year or its not,if it is then Daniel's prophecy is being fulfilled as well,the GT cant come next year and the King of the North and South not be fulfilled as well.
At present we are worldwide studing the Jeremiah book instead of the Daniel book which would have been good,anyways looking at the world scene today I was struck by North Korea and its pushing at the US and the thought hit me ,could this be the King of the North in scripture.After all it has nuclear threats against the U.S. and its allies,just a thought.My main thought is if the GT is to start next year then all other events sould be lined up as well.I will continue to read on this site however its not the same without Grunbalm its just not,he was the most knowledgeable brother I ever came accross in my 50 plus years in the truth and that's a fact.
agape my brother

Hi Bro Stewart

Thanks for writing.

Yes I've read many of your threads I found them excellent to be honest. I also share your thoughts on Bro Grunbaum all the witnesses here are sorry to see him leave but of course we fully understand his decision.

What's certainly clear is that if the end comes along with Bible pattern then Oct 2014 is certainly the date ,if it doesn't then the Bible makes clear the date . I believe you touched on it very briefly once in a letter to Bro Grunbaum , so I know you know the scripture/s I have in mind!

That's the question will the end follow Bible pattern or not. Personally I lean more toward that it won't , but let's see.

As for the King of the North. I think it's obvious who it's going to be but I will not say. But one thing I will say is that this verse here for me is the beginning of the rise or recognition of the new King of the North an overnight thing.

Dan 11:

44  "But there will be reports that will disturb him, out of the sunrising and out of the north, and he will certainly go forth in a great rage in order to annihilate and to devote many to destruction"

I really think the pushing holds less relevance,for the final King of the North. Every King of the North has it's distinct traits. Let' not forget it doesn't have to push on the same scale as say the communist bloc did.

I really can't say too much more , but I agree the KON is here. When he flies into a rage everyone will go "Of course, how obvious", you know how these things work by now. But I don't think it's North Korea that's for sure.

Anyway thanks for writing

Agape love to you and your family

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.
