    Jesus and the angels watching as police officers with weapons approach a house with Witnesses inside.

    During the great tribulation, Gog of Magog’s forces may try to assault us in our homes. But we can take comfort in knowing that Jesus and his angels are aware of what is happening and will defend us (See paragraph 13)

    13. When Gog of Magog attacks, why will we appear to be vulnerable, but what reason for confidence will we have? (See cover picture.)

    13 In the near future, our trust in Jehovah’s ability to protect us will be put to the test. When Gog of Magog, a coalition of nations, attacks God’s people, our lives will appear to be in danger. We will need to be convinced that Jehovah can and will deliver us. To the nations, we will seem like defenseless sheep with no one to protect us. (Ezek. 38:10-12) We will be unarmed, untrained in warfare. The nations will see us as easy targets. They will not see what we see with our eyes of faith​—a host of angels camped all around God’s people, ready to defend us. How could the nations see them? They have no spiritual vision. What a surprise is in store for them when the heavenly armies come to our aid!​—Rev. 19:11, 14, 15.

    This illustration shows a Jehovah's Witness family at home studying the Bible. Little do they know that a police/military force is about to smash in their doors and assault /arrest the family because they are God's holy people. God's angel are aware of this event and will defend the family and come to their aid.

    My questions to this silly scenario : Who will have the list of all Jehovah's Witnesses and their home addresses? Where are they brought after being arrested/killed? What will the angels do to prevent harm to ''God's people'' before and after this event? Why can't the angels attack the ''coalition of nations'' before they arrive at the door?

    I am so glad I will be living in a nice home after the greatest tribulation ever seen.

    It's the same old re-cycled garbage with better graphics is all.

    Sad. Very sad.

    I have been a SWAT operator for over 2 years and making entry on high risk felony warrants for about 8 years now. The first thing we do is what is called a "threat assessment". That is to say, using a matrix of facts gathered through intelligence we decide if the situation warrants a SWAT operation.

    • Belief systems requires them to comply with government orders that do not conflict with their belief system

    Uh, SWAT team with an MRAP would EVER be deployed for such a situation! Based on those facts the family would be sent a letter by Certified Mail that says "You are under house arrest. We will let you know when your trial date is set. Have a nice day."

    My dubs family would say,

    "This is an extreme situation , Satan has whipped up the forces to a state of mad anger. What will the angels, and 144000 , do? Zap them with a thunderbolt! That will teach them !.... Where's your faith ?"

    @#$%&, so sick of this crap. Just what jw's need right now to stoke their fears as if there isn't enough going on in the real world. They are already nearly afraid of their own shadows.

  • Overrated

    What interest would law enforcement or government would have in JW's? Except in Russia.

    I always laugh when reading all these maybes. Too many assumptions, speculations.

    What kind of protection did the brothers and sisters get in Malawi? Attacking people in their homes has already happened and JW's got hacked to bits and raped.

    What kind of protection do you call that?

    What kind of protection do JW's get in a hurricane?

    A Tornado?

    A Flood?

    A COVID Virus? Haven't they already lost thousands in death?

    Sadly because of Russia...JW's have similar REAL images of Russian police, going into KHs etc doing this very thing. That crap gives them ammunition to say "See, it's happening there...just a matter of time"
