    To the best of my limited knowledge, no specific date has been "revealed" yet, but for years I've been saying that 2034 is a good bet. We arrive at that date by adding 1914 - the year that nothing happened - to 120 - the number if years that a cartoon character named No-ah preached to the cavemen about the coming of The Flood, which was closer than the inside of his eyelid.

    I brought up the point soon in my ex-jw career here on JWN mostly as a joke as to how easy it was to set a date with a semblance of scriptural support. Unfortunately, some did not see it as a joke and took it too seriously. Only 15 more years to go and I will probably still be alive and not have dementia or Alzheimers in 2034. I wonder what new date I will have to come up with.



    Mark 13:33 is quoted: "Keep looking, keep awake, for you do not know when the appointed time is." Unless you are the WTS organization, then you can say 1914, 1925, 1975, 1994.

    And what is behind all this materialism in the organization?

    Doubts can weaken our sense of urgency, influencing us to drift toward self-indulgence.

    Remember the flood (Remember the Alamo).

    Peter helps his readers to cultivate patience.

    Since Jehovah lives forever, he can take all factors into consideration and choose the best possible time to act.

    My personal silly speculation is 2034, 120 years after 1914 because of this verse in Genesis.

    Genesis 6:3
    3 after that Jehovah said: "My spirit shall not act toward man indefinitely in that he is also flesh. Accordingly his days shall amount to a hundred and twenty years."

    Its just a joke, folks. Im not serious. But the WTS has been telling people that it is just around the corner. Now the WTS is setting the scene for it to be a long time in the future.

    According to the WTS, Christians must stay busy in acts and deeds. Deeds = salvation.

    We cannot change Jehovahs timetable. His day will come at his appointed hour.

    Imagine you are waiting for the train. The station manager says the train will come at 19:14, then 19:25, then 19:75, and then 19:94. Whose timetable is faulty? Who has been trying to change Gods timetable?

    But take heart.

    The time from now until then will seem to pass much more quickly if we are busy in his service.

    A regular study of Gods Word (translation: WTS publications) and regular association with our brothers at the meetings (all five, weekly) will help us to follow Pauls counsel and to keep our sense of urgency.

    Yes, stay in a constant state of urgency. Sounds like holding your urine until you positively burst.

    Y'know, it was just revealed to me that 2025 would be a Divinely Appropriate time for this knowledge to be released to the hoi polloi rank-and-file Dubs.

    It’s eminent! Holy shit, I think it just happened while I was typing this message. Damn I can’t believe I missed it. I really gotta get off my phone!!

    Nathan, oh my, only 6 years to go. Do you think I can time it and come back in 2024?

    There's always a new date for Armageddon or the GT with the WTS. the provocation of fear is part of what this organization does to gain its adherents and sustain the literature proliferation..

    No date, but a time line has been set by David Splane the explainer. A generation of underlappers / overlappers is a generous 100+ year olds each, that spend 80+ of those lives each as anointed partakers. Add 160+ years to 1914= 207x. so,

    relax, when you see 207x start showing on the calendar, is the time to get nervous. only then does wtBtS INC. have to come up with new ideas, daring dates

    Apocalypsis for them is closer than they think.

    Ah, yes, Waton, but I have a golden type- and antitype- in my service bag!

    Would you like to gaze upon it? Here...

    See? The chart shows how the WTB&TS first predicted the resurrection of "ancient worthies" in 1925 then... see the arching arrow that points to 1975? See? It's all there in black-and-white, Man! Just like The Beatles' album!
