    Most of us that have left the organization have lived with that threat and worry. Its what kept us in and why we wasted years of our lives for so LONG.

    Are you trying to put that typical JW scare tactic out on this Group. It won't work!!!!!

    I/WE have heard predictions for years and years, with each political or religious change in the world. If its the end of this system so be it. The JW's have lied or given the wrong dates to many times. Its like the boy who cried wolf. A loving God will read hearts.

    I'll run to the Kingdom Hall for protection.

    I guess the concensus is that it doesn't matter. Exnjjw even sounded mad. (at God himself, which is shocking to me at least.)

    Regardless of what the Watchtower has stated, Jesus DID warn us of this imminent occurrence (Great Tribulation). If you could, wouldn't you rather live with your family or your friends forever, rather than just a short time? I mean if you really loved them?

    The fact is that Jehovah promises an alternative to death and inexistence. I wonder why anyone would opt for the opposite.

    Read my profile, you will see what I chose. I chose to leave my kids and not take blood.

    I am sure that you are sincere. But could it be, [as we used to ask in the FS], that you are sincerely wrong?

    Sweetie, god doesn't exist at least for me. So how on earth could I be mad at something that does not exist? I love my family and fortunately those that matter to me are not JW's so it really doesn't matter. Like I said I'd rather die than live as JW for the rest of my life. Been there done that until I was 18, I had sense enough to leave that nonsense and have a happy life.

    If being a JW and living forever petting wild animals is what makes you happy and gives you reason to carry on then go for it, but stop preaching it to the choir, most of us here on JWD have heard it all before and I can only speak for myself but I don't want to hear your doom an gloom. Keep waiting on Jehoober you will grow old and die.

    The fact is that Jehovah promises an alternative to death and inexistence.

    This Jehovah hasn't communicated any such promise to me. In fact, I've never had a conversation with Jehovah or any other God. Just becauses some ancient book says that a God says blah blah blah doesn't make it fact.

    I wonder why anyone would opt for the opposite.

    I'd prefer nonexistance than living under a suppresive, repressive, authoritarian rulership as prescribed by the Watchtower Society. Why have so many people in the course of history given up their lives during fights for freedom? Why not just allow the oppressors to oppress...at least you're still alive.

    The UN is not to play a part.

    As you should know the beast of Revelation 17 that "was but is not, but is to rise from the abyss" is actually the International Court of Justice at the Hague (founded 1899) and the League of Nations, which rose out of the abyss after WW1. After this, the beast went into "everlasting Destruction" - which is why the Watchtower claimed in 1941 there were just a few months to Armageddon. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.

    The Faithful and Discreet Slave proved this scripturally.

    Since the change in the early 90s WTabout the "disgusting thing" standing in Christendom's holy place, there is no credible proof of anything the Witchtower Babble and Trash Society claims about the UN other than "WE SAY IT IS BECAUSE WE ARE THE TRUE RELIGION BELIEVE US OR YOU WILL BE KILLED BY OUR GOD."

    have you jumped out of this thread yet?

    According to the Holy Scriptures, for 1,260 days or 42 months or 3 and 1/2 years, the world is going through the most awful time in its history.

    Here is a description of those times from The Message Bible:

    Revelation 13:5 -8 The Beast had a loud mouth, boastful and blasphemous. It could do anything it wanted for forty-two months. It yelled blasphemies against God, blasphemed his Name, blasphemed his Church, especially those already dwelling with God in Heaven. It was permitted to make war on God's holy people and conquer them. It held absolute sway over all tribes and peoples, tongues and races. Everyone on earth whose name was not written from the world's foundation in the slaughtered Lamb's Book of Life will worship the Beast.

    9 -10 Are you listening to this? They've made their bed; now they must lie in it. Anyone marked for prison goes straight to prison; anyone pulling a sword goes down by the sword. Meanwhile, God's holy people passionately and faithfully stand their ground.

    Please note the highlighted parts. All we have to do is stand our ground and wait on the Master.
