This brother starts off with reading the following scriptures from the book of Mark 13:1-8
3 While he was sitting on the Mount of Olives across from the temple, Peter, James, John, and Andrew asked him privately, 4 “Tell us, when will these things happen? And what will be the sign when all these things are about to be accomplished?”
5 Jesus told them, “Watch out that no one deceives you. 6 Many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am he,’ and they will deceive many. 7 When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, don’t be alarmed; these things must take place, but it is not yet the end. 8 For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines.[a] These are the beginning of birth pains.
The brother begins to explain that Jesus is giving the apostles a composite prophecy/a two-fold prophecy because some events Jesus was talking about was affecting the people in the first century and some other events have a would affect the time period that we're living in today(2018).
After 40 years of being a Jehovah's Witness and having this scripture pounded into our brains, the twisting of this scripture really amazes me. Now, I stand back and see many-twisted scriptures taught by the Watchtower Society. Talk about twisting scripture to make it say what you want it to mean.
Jesus was only addressing only Peter, James, John, and Andrew...not any other generation or period. Definitely not the year... 2018.
