     “We are starting to show solidarity.”
“We have to take strong action in the name of humanity.”

Aside from this news, Bro. Mark Sanderson of The Governing Body in the JW Broadcasting this month, gave out a very urgent message to the World wide brotherhood, and to the public for those who know are inactive saying:

"It's URGENT, that you act without delay! Why? The clear warning that Jesus gave, should be clear warning, that Jesus gave, should be food for thought for everyone of Jehovah's precious sheep. At Luke 21:34,35, Jesus said,
"... pay attention to yourselves that your hearts never become weighed down with overeating and heavy drinking and anxieties of life, and SUDDENLY THAT DAY BE INSTANTLY UPON YOU  AS A SNARE. For it will come upon all those dwelling on the face of the whole earth.  Keep awake, then, all the time making supplication that you may succeed in escaping all these things that must occur and in standing before the Son of man."

Notice the call TO ACTION! The Message in these verses, is clear. The NEARNESS of the end, IS URGENT, that we pay attention to ourselves! The August 15, 2015 Watchtower offered some THOUGHT PROVOKING comments on this matter. It stated,

"HOW BAD, do you expect conditions to become BEFORE THE GREAT TRIBULATION? For example, do you expect there will be a war in every country?No food on anyone's table? An illnes in everyones household? Under those conditions, even skeptics would feel compelled to admit that Bible prophecy was undergoing fulfillment. HOWEVER, Jesus said that most people would take no note of his presence, carrying on in life's normal activities UNTIL IT IS TOO LATE. Thus the scriptures indicate, that world conditions in the last days would NOT BECOME SO EXTREME THAT PEOPLE WOULD BE FORCE TO BELIEVE THAT THE END IS NEAR."

Well THEN! The article said this,

"We should NOT ASSUME, that MUCH TIME IS NEEDED FOR THE STATE OF THIS WORLD TO DEVELOP TO THE POINT, where the Ten Horns and the Wild Beast of Rev. 17:16, turn on Babylon The Great, the World Empire of False religion. Let us bear in mind, that god will put it into their hearts to MAKE THAT MOVE! And this could happen SWIFTLY AND AT ANYTIME! The end of this entire system of things, is NOT FAR OFF!"

Brother's and sisters, do you sense THE URGENCY OF THOSE WORDS?!!!
It may be, that UNTIL NOW, YOU THOUGHT THAT SOME WORLD EVENT, WOULD MAKE IT CLEAR, THAT YOU NEED TO RETURN TO JEHOVAH. But the Bible tells us that the Great Tribulation will break out with SUCH SUDENESS, that IT WILL CATCH PEOPLE UNAWARE, leaving NO TIME TO MAKE CHANGES! Really then, if you have been inactive, and waiting FOR THE RIGHT TIME to return, THIS IS IT!!!"

End of Governing Body's qoute.

Bro. Rando, it seems that this is the 'last call' to enter the 'ARK' of our Spiritual Paradise, with what little time remains.

What do yo get out of all this????

Answer
At Luke 21:34,35, Jesus said, "... pay attention to yourselves that your hearts never become weighed down with overeating and heavy drinking and anxieties of life, and SUDDENLY THAT DAY BE INSTANTLY UPON YOU  AS A SNARE. For it will come upon all those dwelling on the face of the whole earth.  Keep awake, then, all the time making supplication that you may succeed in escaping all these things that must occur and in standing before the Son of man."

In context of this saying of Christ, his audience was his disciples.  Something to note here is listed in Revelation.  "And I saw another strong angel descending from heaven, arrayed with a cloud, and a rainbow was on his head, and his face was like the sun, and his legs were like pillars of fire,  and he had in his hand a little scroll that had been unrolled. And he set his right foot on the sea, but his left one on the earth,  and he cried out with a loud voice just as when a lion roars. And when he cried out, the voices of the seven thunders spoke." (Rev 10:1-3)

We know that this strong angel is Jesus Christ, the Word of God who has been given all authority in heaven and on earth.  But notice the following: "Now when the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write, but I heard a voice out of heaven say: “Seal up the things the seven thunders spoke, and do not write them down." (Rev 10:4)

These are the things that have to do with "the end" for the scriptures state: "the sacred secret that God declared as good news to his own slaves the prophets is indeed brought to a finish." (Rev 10:7)

Our message of the Good News is about to change to a bitter message, some brothers and sisters may even become reluctant to giving it. "I took the little scroll out of the hand of the angel and ate it, and in my mouth it was sweet like honey, but when I had eaten it, my stomach was made bitter.  And they said to me: “You must prophesy again about peoples and nations and tongues and many kings.” (Rev 10:10-11)

Expertise

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

Experience

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.

Organizations
“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)

Publications
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."

Education/Credentials
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.....
