Ijust ran across this. obviously its not a real talk but has anyone heard of this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBYGp5gD-oo&feature=related
2034 new date for Armageddon???
If it were true, I wouldn't need to worry about Armageddon anyways, as I will surely be dead by then. And so will many other people.
I haven't looked at the youtube but YES, it has already been subtly hinted at and implied that the parallel of Noah's day with the "last days" would also include a 120 year period of preaching/warning work (that would be from 1914 to 2034).
In my opinion the ONLY reason they haven't taken this and run with it is that 2034 is still TOO FAR AWAY for them to maintain the urgency and fear they need in the rank and file. You will see a gradual emphasis of this until the mid-to-late 2020s when they will go completely nuts with it like they did in 1914, 1915, 1925, 1975.
By that time I hope my kid is a millionaire helping to support me in my retirement.
Not from the WT officially, but a conjecture that it is a possible foundation date for the future.
The 2034 date is thoroughly refuted by the numbers in the Insight book.
6/1/99 and 8/15/99 Watchtowers each had articles that drew the parallel between the JWs work and Noah's. 1879 was the start of The Watchtower and 1999 was 120 years later. Some Dubs believed the year 2000 would not arrive before Armageddon.
Now, all they have to do is shift the start date to 1914 and they've got 2034 to look forward to. As we have seen in recent years, subtlety isn't working; they've gone bat-crap crazy in their bluntness. They'll work their way up to it over the next couple decades, you'll see.
Proof they already started on this road. Thanks, Blondie!
Well, I'll be, let's see...74 then. Good, I'll be too old to give a damn anyway. Probably just be worrying about whether my teeth will stay in while I'm eating my oatmeal.
Oh come on... everyone knows that the date for Armageddon is: "Soon"
Yes Armageddon is always just around the corner.
NOT..... with the overlap the new end-date is 2154!
See the very last of 1914's generation born Dec 31, 1914 lives the Bible-max lifetime of 120 years and expires Dec 31, 2034..... in another hospital at the very same moment another person is born Dec 31, 2034 who then represents the overlapping generation and they too live 120 years and dies Dec 31, 2154...... Thusly, it is logical and evident to all 'true Xians' !!!
Actually, the date for Armageddon is VERY SOON NOW, we're on the threshold, it's fast-approaching.
Long as it doesn't come before May 19, 2010.
Think About It
I have a book by former JW, John Denton, he predicts in his book titled "Armageddon 2033"
By 2020 they will have splintered anyway...
THe New System is so close you can smell it
And what does it smell like? Fresh cut green grass? Apple pie?
Mad Sweeney stated, " Some Dubs believed the year 2000 would not arrive before Armageddon. " Actually Mad - Most ALL the dubs I knew thought Armageddon would come BEFORE 2000 ! It blew all of their minds when we entered the 21st century. Here we are in 2010 - 10 years into the 21st century. What WILL these people do in the year 2050- when NOTHING has happened still ? Makes you wonder. Peace out, Mr. Flipper
