Another topic in the FRIENDS section was about a convention talk titled "Who Are Preaching the Good News of the Kingdom"? It brought several thoughts to mind.
Of course it is only Jehovah's Witnesses doing that because most everything they do is in disobedience to Jesus. Yes, Jesus did talk to the Jews about the Kingdom. It could have been theirs. They could have been the priests of the world, but they rejected him. So, did Jesus change his command regarding the preaching message after the Jews murdered their own God? Yes he did. This is the Christian message that the JW's ignore to their own destruction, from the risen Jesus Christ:
Acts 10 -
"And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:
Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;
Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.
And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.
To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins. "
So, the final instructions from Jesus wasn't about the Kingdom per se, it was about the coming judgment AFTER A PERSON DIES and how it is Jesus who is the judge of the living and the dead and how those that trust Him receive remission of sins.
This is just the opposite of the Watchtower preaching message which open declares that their followers are not justified (do not have their sins forgiven).
33 The Jonadabs, or “other sheep”, are in a different
condition. The Jonadabs have fled to the Lord and
there found refuge. They are still human creatures,
not even justified, because the receiving of life everlasting
depends upon their faithful obedience within God’s organization
