Quote- JOHNAMOS - You logically quote from the RNWT -
using the Org's questionable translation of Hebrew & Greek words. This
inevitably skews the meanings and context of scriptures, in order to present an
erroneous or misleading teaching.
Consider Habakkuk 2:3 which you quoted;
the word chakah which the Org renders as "keep in expectation of", literally means
long for". Definitely a change of tone, somewhat. – end quote
Habakkuk 2:3 King James Version (KJV)
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it
shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because
it will surely come, it will not tarry.
Wait - : to stay in a place until an expected event happens, until
someone arrives, until it is your turn to do something, etc.
: to remain in a state in which you expect or hope that something
will happen soon
to remain stationary in
readiness or expectation
a state or attitude of watchfulness
Luke 21:36 King James Version (KJV)
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye
may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and
to stand before the Son of man.
Luke 21:36 Common English Bible (CEB)
Stay alert at all times, praying that you are strong enough to escape
everything that is about to happen and to stand before the Human One.”
Luke 21:36 English Standard Version (ESV)
But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape
all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son
Quote - WHY KEEP IN EXPECTATION? Watchtower August 15 par. 4, page 15
"The Bible leaves no doubt about what our attitude should be toward the impending destruction of this system of things. Jesus told his followers to "keep on the watch" and to "keep awake." (Matt. 24:42; Luke 21:34-36) That in itself is a good reason to remain in expectation - Jesus told us to do so!" - end quote
quote - Our attitude toward "the impending destruction of this system of things"????? Nope!
And Jesus never told anyone to concern themselves! – end quote
