1914 Doctrine is FALSE -- Questions for JW's

    Is there any Jehovah's Witness who can answer these questions about 1914?

    Can you demonstrate, using the Holy Scriptures, that the Messianic Kingdom was established in 1914, that Jesus got the Full Legal Right to become King that year, and that Jesus returned invisibly in 1914, and that the "Last Days" began that year?

    1:) No encyclopedia, no history book, and no archaeology book that I have ever seen have EVER said that Nebuchadnezzar destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple in the year 607 BCE. All of the encyclopedias, history books, and archaeological books that I have ever seen say that it happened in 586/587 BCE. What evidence or proof do you have that it happened in 607 BCE?

    2:) If ALL of the historians and archaeologists are WRONG about 607 BCE, then how do we know that they are right about ANY other date that the Watchtower Society makes use of in their Publications, such as the year that Cyrus rescued the Jews?

    3:) WHY should we START counting when Jerusalem was destroyed? Where does Daniel Chapter 4 say that the prophecy of the Great Tree begins when Jerusalem was destroyed?

    4:) WHY should we interpret each "day" as being a "year" ONLY IN THIS CHAPTER OF DANIEL? If the "Day for a Year" is truly a Bible Prophecy Rule, then why shouldn't we apply it to ALL of the prophecies of Daniel? Or ALL of the prophecies in the entire Bible?

    5:) Do Jehovah's Witenesses apply the "Day for a Year" Rule to the "42 months", the "1,335 days", or to any other prophecies in the Bible?

    6:) Daniel Chapter 4 is about King Nebuchadnezzar (The Great Tree) being "chopped down" (going insane) for 7 LITERAL YEARS. Then being restored as King. That is the ONLY fulfillment that the Bible speaks of. Can you show me using the Scriptures what the evidence or proof is that there was ANOTHER fulfillment?

    7:) Where does the Bible say that Jerusalem in Luke 21:24 represents the "typical kingdom of God through its theocratic rulership on earth"? Why couldn't Jerusalem in Luke 21:24 simply mean the city of Jerusalem, the actual CITY?

    8:) How do Jehovah's Witnesses jump from Nebuchadnezzar being insane for 7 years to Jesus becoming King in 1914? That is the biggest question of all for all Jehovah's Witnesses. Their entire religious organization and its teachings are based on this!

    9:) Where does the Bible say that Jesus would have the legal right to rule ONLY when the appointed times of the nations were fulfilled?

    10:) How did Jesus NOT have the legal right already, since He was the Legal and Rightful Heir to King David?

    11:) Also, after His Death, Resurrection, and Ascension, the New Testament describes Jesus as already being KING and Jesus Himself said "ALL AUTHORITY in Heaven and on Earth HAS BEEN GIVEN TO ME." So, if ALL AUTHORITY had already been given to Jesus in the year 33 CE, then how could MORE authority be given to him in 1914 CE?

    12:) Also, are you aware that Charles Taze Russell used the Pyramids in Egypt to help calculate and confirm the year 1914?

    13:) And are you aware that in the 1800's Russell and his associates were preaching that they were all going to be raptured to Heaven in 1914 and that Armageddon would probably happen right after that?

    14:) Are you aware that n the 1800's Russell and his associates were teaching that Jesus had ALREADY invisibly returned in 1874!

    Wow, is no one going to post on this thread. Gosh, my feelings are hurt :-( .

    Where are the JW Apologists when you need them?

  • Titus

    I don't believe the 1914 doctrine.

  • UnDisfellowshipped

    Wow, Titus! That is great! I am so glad that you are thinking for yourself and studying the Scriptures like the Noble-Minded Beroeans did! (Acts 17:11)

    I pray that Jehovah will continue to guide you into more and more truth from His Holy Word, including the truth about the Trinity, and Heavenly Hope.

    You don't need to be too smart to realize that you cannot connect Daniel 4, Matthew 24 and 2 Timothy 3:1-5.

    Thank you, UD.

    A witness will try to use Rev 12 to prove that immediately after Satan has lost the battle in Heavens , he was hurled down on earth and caused the WW1 ... and the outbreak of the ww1 is the proof !

    BUT Rev 12 cannot be used that way , because it is against the teaching of Christ !


  • thetrueone

    It's good point your making UnDF , nowhere in the bible does it say through the words of Jesus that he would return invisibly,

    nor is it stated in the bible that he would present a calculable date for his Faithful Discrete Slave.

    The WTS corporation says they never go beyond what is written, well the fact is that is exactly what they have done.

    Self anointing themselves as the chosen religion to spread gospel truths is a lie concocted to sell and promote their literature,

    plain and simple.

    All of the calculated dates 1874, 1914,1925, 1975 were marketing dates to support circulation of the WTS. literature.

    They were falsely devised and unscriptural.

    Just about everything the have said about themselves were corruptly devised elements of cultivating and sustaining power and money.

    In other words BULLSHIT with a identifiable cover and illusion of sanctified righteousness and purpose.

    Even the first president of the WTS. couldn't stand for this bullshit so he left and joined another Christian based faith.

    Really? He left the WT?

  • UnDisfellowshipped
