This is the announcement we have heard “about” but now it has been released to the whole world
on TV.JW.Org. Its in the 2nd of a three part serries about the JW Annual Meeting (Oct 2018). Go
to minute 52."The question arises, Will we have one or more times in the future or even now when we can say, “This is it”and have that same exciting fervor because of Bible prophesy?Well, let’s begin with this one here.Find Daniel chapter 11 and we’re going to read verse 40 or half of it:“In the time of the end the king of the south will engage with him in a pushing.”So the Governing Body has been prayerfully considering recent events -has been prayerfully considering recent events and we know that in 1991, the SovietUnion came to an end. So who is “the king of the north”?Well, after prayerfully considering it -and the matter of the “pushing”we’re assuring you that what we see, after prayerfully considering it, is that it’s Russia and its allies - the king of the north.Now, here’s some reasoning. The Soviet Union disbanded; Russiacame up from the rubble of the Soviet Union, allong with its allies,And here are some of the facts. Two things have become apparent.Russia and its allies are continuing to engage in a pushing with the king of the south. - We’ll get to that “pushing” point shortly.-and the second, they are taking the lead in persecuting and opposing God’s people. Now, notice what the “pushing” includes: electronic espionage, computer attacks,trade wars, (and that’s what they call them), and the hostile flooding into surrounding territory. These are recurring features of the news headlines. You’re aware of them.So someone asks if the king of the north has been inactive - well no.It appears he’s never been this busy with the pushing the king of the south.SSO, THIS IS IT.At this point, we’re confident to share with you that Russia and its allies are the king of the north, and they’re engaged in this pushing. In fact, last month (Sept) they had the largest war games -Russia did - since the Soviet Union was in existence way backin the ‘80's. And, they had their allies with them in the war game. So we’re confident THIS IS IT.This is the king of the north, and that’s what’s involved at this time with the pushing-locking horns with each other. So is there going to be another time related to Bible prophecy where the faithful slave will be able to say to you , “This is IT”
He finishes his talk with the attack on Babylon the Great
