Jehovah`s Witness/Christ's reign
Just want to say i read your answer about 1914 and i am not fully convinced by the scriptures you brought out.
Firstly you brought up Rev 12:9 that Satan was hurled down to earth in 1914, did you read the verses before that one?
Rev 12:4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born.
What are the stars that were dragged down? Rev 1:19 answers that for us. So when did that happen? Please don't tell me it happened in Noah's time
Rev 12:6 The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.
Who is this woman, are there scriptures that the Watchtower can bring forth to show it is God's heavenly organisation?
Gal 4:24 These things are being taken figuratively: The women represent two covenants. One covenant is from Mount Sinai and bears children who are to be slaves: This is Hagar. 25 Now Hagar stands for Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to the present city of Jerusalem, because she is in slavery with her children. 26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.
Women in the bible represent covenants. So how is Jerusalem above (a promise) a mother to the chosen? Gen 22:16,17 God made that promise/covenant with Abraham
Rev 12:7 Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8 But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. 9 The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
Before Satan is hurled to the earth there is a war, Michael with his angels on one side and Satan with his.
Who are these angels? Do you remember Rev 1:19?
The other problem Wathctower has to take into consideration is the book of Luke 21 when he was approached by the apostles. Did he say the things Watchtower uses to support this doctrine will occur before or after?
Luke 21:7 And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?
Luke 21:9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.
Please respond with scriptures that support the official doctrine
P.S. you can make public should you wish to"
No need to answer since it has been replied to - twice.
Besides, Brother Abdijah gave an extensive answer already here
However, let me add this bit:
We're now in 100th year of Jesus' Kingdom Reign and the time is now at hand for this old dying system of things to bite the dust. Soon we will be facing The Great Tribulation. Hopefully by then you've already figured out which side you are on.
Hopefully you're on the side of the Warrior King Jesus when he executes judgment upon this wicked system of things along with those who are fond of it.
Hopefully you're among Jehovah's people with their "heads raised up" as their deliverance had finally arrived (Luke 21:28)!!!
Hopefully by then all doubts about which Organization God is using to preach "this good news of the Kingdom ...in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations
(Matt 24:14) has already been settled!!!
Because if not - all of these questions will be in vain.
Time is running out...
