    The final part of the October, 2018 Annual Meeting has now been released of JW org TV.

    The following includes a transcript of Mark Sanderson's speech for those that don't want to listen to the Broadcast.

    We have long held that the land of decoration is the "spiritual Estate of Jehovah's people"... Now Brothers what can we say about all these events that have taken place (referring to recent events in Russia) in such a short period of time? Well, truly, if you're a student of the history of God's organization, you can say these events are unprecedented in our history. We've never seen a country or a territory with 175,000 Witnesses of Jehovah go under ban. We've not seen such a large branch seized by a government, as well as all of our Kingdom Halls - and even declaring the New World Translation as 'extremist'
    Well then based on all of these events, what can we say? The Governing Body believes that these and other actions by Russia and it's allies constitute a part of the fulfillment of the King of the North entering the Land of Decoration.
    Well now, what can we expect? It would not be surprising if Russia and its allies continue to persecute God's people and that persecution spreads to other lands. Already, just a little more than one week ago, on Sept. 26, 2018, the Supreme Court of the Donetsk People's Republic that's one of the breakaway republics from Ukraine, declared the religious association of Jehovah's Witnesses to be "extremist'.
    Well, now, brothers, this raises a very important question. Does this mean that the attack of Gog of Magog has begun? Well, we are not ready to tell you. Pay attention, the annual meeting is not yet over. By the end of this meeting you will have the answer to that important question.

    Sanderson then explains how JWs can be ready, he states

    1. "We must follow direction from Jehovah's organization ... Why? Because Jehovah will provide us with the direction that we need, so that we can maintain our spirituality. And Brothers it is vital that we adhere to that direction closely in order to preserve our spirituality and the spirituality of others who may worship with us."

    2. "Don't panic, trust in Jehovah and don't ban yourself."

    3. "Protect your spiritual food. Brothers, have a place in mind to hide your Bible and other precious spiritual food, whether in printed or in electronic form. "

    4. "Love one another intensely from the heart" Apparently this means that you need to clap when you see Brothers being charged and imprisoned.

    Geoffrey Jackson gives the next talk and as Lett introduces him, he suggests that you don't get up and go to the toilet so as not to miss anything.

    Jackson says that the attack of Gog of Magog has not yet started.

    That's basically the same advice they give at every convention and every assembly, except the hiding your Bible thing, although a Sster I knew a few years back told me she intended to hide her Bible in a bag of peas in her freezer, and that idea didn't just occur to her in a vacuum. Don't they have anything new?

    Compared to Russia today, nothing gets close to what happened to JWs in Nazi occupied lands, The sisters in Malawi. ( really south of israel) anyway.

    Jws should hide their publications in shame. . The GB does, by retro-editing it, Brave new world stile, hiding the facts.

    Wot a crock of shite. Thank you for posting. I had a gut full after am111 in last weeks vomitville.

    Here we go again, 'the needle returns to the start of the song and we all sing along like before'.

    (refer earlier posts about the theory of communist block and king of north over the years)

    And for those who fall for the con,'And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow'.

    I think that's how the song goes. But, it's so fitting. Rinse and repeat.

    Yes, in jwdom they are lonely tonight and forever because of the F.O.G. and perception that 'Spirituality'

    is defined by a group of Fiddlers. Don't read the music,,,,,, play by ear,,,, she'll be right on the night.

    just my two bobs worth.

    jtg

    P.S. I am a muso but, we never did shit like this. And we had a Fiddler in the European music band.

    Pay attention, the annual meeting is not yet over. By the end of this meeting you will have the answer to that important question.

    And the answer is ????

    And did they give an answer ? or did they leave that up to the brothers and sisters to draw their own conclusions whereby the GB can say at a future date the bros and sisters went ahead of Jah`s celestial chariot .

    Jackson gave the next talk and said that the attack of Gog of Magog had not yet started.

    It was clear that it is them, the GB, who have the answers.

    The final talk was given by Splane who was given the agenda to 'comfort' the JWs after such intense talks.

    Isnt the final attack on the witnesses suppose to be AFTER the "Harlot" is destroyed by the beast? Because it seems like Catholics, Jews and many other false religions are still active and not really being dismantled by the UN?

    The WTS leaders are prophesiers of bullshit to make themselves look like god's chosen ones who are to be persecuted in the " End Times "

    Its no real surprise they would exploit the banning situation in Russia as identifiable persecution..

    Jidder - Isnt the final attack on the witnesses suppose to be AFTER the "Harlot" is destroyed by the beast?


    Yes and they are still teaching this as Jackson mentioned in his talk.

    What is different (from what I can make out), that Daniel 11:40-42 is now being fulfilled but Daniel 11:43-45 is still to
    come, that will be at the final part of the Great Tribulation, when Armageddon happens.

    At this meeting they have said that the King of the North has entered the Land of Decoration but strangely they do not say that this is the start of the Great Tribulation.
