@blondie, I read that article when it was published. Reading it again tonight, it is such poorly written nonsense.
The part where they insert brackets into scripture is damning, and smacks of Rutherford doing the same. They're just reading an interpretation into it and expecting us to buy that.
I love how they ask how birds can eat Satan the Devil when he's supposed to be a Spirit that is abyssed at that point, and the rest of the article's sophistry is concocted hence. Who cares?! They could easily have said, "Obviously, the birds can't physically eat Gog [Satan], and therefore this is symbolic of his misery in the abyss." I mean, why not? But they obviously wanted to push a new change this late in the game, something they can reference later in a subsequent update.
Given the news about Russia at the time, it was pretty obvious what was being said between the lines, particularly when it brought up the king of the north. [And that was without the magic of inserting an interpretation in brackets.]
