Jehovah`s Witness/United Nations and Prophecy


This is a SERIOUS question from an active Jehovah's witness (Central Congregation, Tucson, AZ), it is not a typical UN prophecy question.

I believe we Jehovah's witnesses formed a provable expose' of the modern United Nations developmental activity in prophecy and in the world in regard to the 1919 League of Nations "image" presentation of Revelation 13:11-15, and Daniel 12:11 parallel. I believe the United Nations did emerge from the WW2 "abyss" of global inaction of the League of Nations to fulfill Revelation 17:8-11 in 1945.

My question is:

If we Jehovah's witnesses exposed the UN as prophecy in 1919 and 1945, then why does Bethel say nothing about the 3rd United Nations presentation after the Cold War in 1990?

In keeping with Jehovah's foresight, would not the 3rd UN event of 1990 ALSO be in prophecy? ...thus a UN 1-2-3 continuum, so far, en route to world government which would then be a predictable 4th UN presentation also in prophecy of the future? (Rev17:12; Dan11:45; Dan8:25; Dan 12:11 final fulfillment)

Why does Bethel now, all of a sudden since 1990, fully ignore UN global development since 1990?

Thank You

Hello Michelle,

I haven't researched all that you have written, but I will just reply with what I assume you are referring to, if not, please feel free to correct me if I misunderstand what you are asking.  

Simply put....the identity of the Wild Beast, the League of Nations, and its image, the UN was foretold.  The UN still exists, it has not dissolved.  It's active today, so any events that happen under their reign (doesn't matter how many events happen) it's still the UN, not another entity.   

The prophecy in the Bible speaks of the scarlet colored wild beast (UN) being the one to destroy Babylon the Great.  Since Babylon the Great is still here, and so is the UN...then there is nothing that is being ignored.  Whatever the UN does inbetween the time of their destroying false religion is just what occurs.  Once the cry of peace and security has happened, the major event is the destruction of false religion.  What more is there of major importance than that!!  That is the start of the Great Tribulation.

I'm not sure what you mean by "Why does Bethel now, all of sudden since 1990 fully ignore UN global development since 1990."  What makes you think they ignore any developments?  They are keeping on the watch more than ever as the day draws near.  Being a Witness you should know that!

I can answer questions related to Jehovah's Witnesses and the Bible. I love learning the truth from the Bible and helping others to learn that truth as well. I don't know everything but will answer from the Bible, I like to use illustrations as well to help a person relate to what is being said. The Bible has the last say so over any person.


I am an active baptized Jehovah's Witness and Jehovah is Almighty God,(Ps. 83:18) and his Son Jesus Christ died so that everyone exercising faith in him may not be destroyed but have everlasting life. (John 3:16). I support my fellow Witnesses on this board who are real, and Jehovah's worldwide visible organization, including the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses. As God is not a God of disorder, and there could not be order if there were not ones to take the lead. Taking the lead and having a leader is not the same, our leader is Jesus Christ, and in order to have unity and order, there has to be arrangements in place. As the first century Christians had, there were men taking the lead, (Acts 6:1-6) as with Moses, (Exodus 18:21) and in our day, in following with Bible truths, we do the same. When people twist that around to us worshiping men, it is just a straight out lie! Why would the Scripture at 1 Tim. 3:1-10, 12, 13 give the criteria for men reaching out for an office of overseer if that was not meant to be? (Phil 1:1, Acts 20:17, 28, Eph. 4:11, 12, 2 Cor. 3:4-6). If we were not supposed to have men who take the lead, why was this scripture penned? James 5:14-15 "Is there anyone sick among YOU? Let him call the older men of the congregation to [him], and let them pray over him, greasing [him] with oil in the name of Jehovah. 15 And the prayer of faith will make the indisposed one well, and Jehovah will raise him up. Also, if he has committed sins, it will be forgiven him."

If you have legit questions and want to know the truth, please ask, but if you are here to spread your lies and twists of the scriptures or get your falsehoods out, you may get rejected! The truth is from the Bible, if what you say does not harmonize with the Bible then what you say is wrong! Context and other scriptures help determine scriptures that may stump us, let scripture interpret scripture. The Bible does not contradict itself, so if what you are being taught or if what you are teaching makes it seem like the Bible is contradictory, remember it's not the Bible it's the man-made teaching! Doctrines of men! Mark 7:6, 7 "He said to them: “Isaiah aptly prophesied about YOU hypocrites, as it is written, ‘This people honor me with [their] lips, but their hearts are far removed from me. 7 It is in vain that they keep worshiping me, because they teach as doctrines commands of men." (also Romans 10:2, 3)

Matthew 24:14 says "And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come." We are doing that today, we are living in times of Bible Prophecy and as a Jehovah's Witness, we have the privilege to be apart of a prophecy spoken by Jesus himself! The good news of the Kingdom. Ask yourself, what kingdom? then read Daniel 2:44! It's a real government. Take heed now! Listening to men over God will mean your life.(Prov 3:5,6, Ps. 146:3) A lie will never become truth, No matter how long or how many people say it or speak it. Learn what the Bible really teaches, seek out Jehovah's ways, serving God in truth is only acceptable to him,(John 4:23, 24) you can not be serving God acceptably if what you believe is a lie! Pray for understanding and ask Jehovah to search your heart and draw you! (John 6:44, 65) Now is the time to be with the people who are called by Jehovah's name! (Acts 15:14, 17, Isa. 43:7, 10, Zech 8:23)
