Check out this wacko BS from the 1943 'The Truth Shall Make You Free' book:
In the postwar "new order" Jerusalem's modern counterpart, "Christendom," will surround herself with armies of an international police force for her continued world domination. The Roman Catholic Hierarchy will attempt to act as the. spiritual police force of the entire earth . "Christendom" will then feel she can cry "Peace and safety". This international police force, or the stationing of order-preserving armies according to the mutual understanding between allied nations, will be for the maintenance of the "abomination of desolation" in the "holy place" . Hence those armies will be really maintained against God and his kingdom . And when you see this, said Jesus, then you may be certain that "Christendom's" astounding "desolation" is nigh. Religion will not save her .
Before the ten horns of the seven-headed beast turn upon her in retribution, organized religion will turn the horns against Jehovah's witnesses and will ride the beast in a final savage charge against them . ... (illustration)
Therefore "Christendom" will use her postwar "new order" and her encompassing armies (Jesuitic as well as military) for the suppression of the Kingdom message. She will claim it is treasonable and disturbing and unsafe to the postwar rule.
So this is new to me. As a kid in the 60s I remember that the notion was that while Christendom rode the Wild Beast, it was the nations that would turn on religion, and then come after JWs... which is wacko in its own right, but this notion of actual armies under Christendom's rule attacking JWs... hoo boy
or did I just sleep through all those book study meetings?
