    "One hundred twenty more - wait for 2034!" Nathan, great,

    you are into poems today, but its 1914 plus 120 more= 2034. we have it easier now:

    2016 : only eighteen more to go to 2-oh-34 it is Rev. magic. 18 X 6.66 = 120.

    Prologos, I was trying to stay in the flow of Steve2's opening post:

    "PICTURE yourself as a member of the Brooklyn Bethel family on Friday morning, October 2, 1914... "

    the flow of Steve2's opening post: Nathan,

    thank you for reminding me, i again am guilty of not re-reading, and then ignoring , the important opening post. Bsw, your name picture reminds me of standing behind that imposing person of Nathan H. Knorr, for a long time (like David in the cave behind Saul) ha ha, while he read his favoured magazine: -- Time.

    Very good, Steve2, this is a valuable summary, i am sure i will use, and very well written, thank you.

    You know, as I was reading the 2011 WT about "When did Jerusalem fall, 607 vs 587" & did all this research about "generations" & 'how long is one according to the Bible, and added all the years & people of Matthew, Luke & anyone else in Jesus family listings, then divided then and came up with "40 years is what they average"......

    Well, when I figured out that "apparently" 607 was a lie, and knew they would have to change "generation", I thought... "How could they? "

    I then came across the verse about Noah... "preaching(?) for 120 years, and thought "they are going to add 120 to 1914, and make it seem like 2034 is "evidentally" logical.

    & here we are.....

    Quick observation: The same pattern of hope and disappointment was evident 70 years earlier during the "great disappointment" of 1844 which followed v the "Second Adventists" prophetic failure whose convenient fulfillment was spiritualized. Charles Russell had very good teachers on how to recover from failed predictions.

    They fall for it again and again. Anything can happen if it's invisible!

    The Watchtower leaders are confidence tricksters and their followers are idiots.
