The Seven Trumpets
Yes.......it seems that the 'trumpet blasts' of nearly 100 years ago have had a significant impact on Satan's System and the defending of Jehovah's Universal Sovereignty.
Great response Spark I'll use it.
After all a third part of the earth was torched after Rutherford spoke in 1922 st Cedar point
As far as I know, they believe the fulfilment is ongoing until the Great Tribulation. Which is another mind cramp as to how they believe that.
When we studied this in 2008 I knew then and there what I had long since suspected, I got had !
My guess is this very soon. New light:
"The 7 trumpet blasts no longer represent the declarations from the 7 conventions. They are 7 angelic commands. Which commands? Brothers, what do the angels do? What have they done and what will they do? (After a long 2 part Watchtower on what angels have done from year dot to the future, here are the revised understandings.)
The trumpet blasts began at the beginning of the Last days and will end after the Millennium.
1- The first 4 angels that blew their trumpets represents the announcement of annihilation during the Great War that began in 1914
2- The fifth angel that blew his trumpet represents the announcement of the army of Witnesses during the dark days of World War 2. (Not a porn scene, with use of the word shaft and abyss)
3- The sixth trumpet blasts represents the angelic command to begin the Great Tribulation, to torment God's enemies with a judgment message until their ultimate destruction at Armageddon.
4 - The seventh and final trumpet blast is the declaration that God's Kingdom is here to stay. What follows is Armageddon, the resurrection and the Millennium.
If you were scared rereading the verses according to those understandings, believe me, that is most certainly something jws would be willing to accept. I think there's going to be a watered down version of the Revelation Climax book very soon. Since they're devoting a whole year to studying the gospels, that's giving them enough time to prepare a new book for reference once they touch on Revelation again in a year or two at their midweek meeting. See if what I say is correct.
Hey pomo6780, be careful...the writing committee may simply cut and paste your comment and release it as "new light"!
You have just made their task easier! Heha🎺🎺🎺🎺🎺🎺🎺😉
I bet you are right. It's funny how any long term Jehovahs witness can almost write all their mags and books for them, second guessing what they will say.
Kinda frightening it's so stamped into our psyche.
I'm trying to corner Mr. Penny on this to see if he will admit speculation. I doubt it, but here is my last (yesterday) post to him on the Jesus' Witnesses forum.

Re: Rev 8: 1-2; 6-7...
When the sounding of the seven trumpets got under way in 1922, the Bible Student convention at Cedar Point, Ohio, (Rev.8:7) featured a talk by the president of the Watchtower Society, J. F Rutherford, based on the scripture, ”The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand.” Revelation Its Grand Climax at Hand. p. 172
Mr. Penny, did the sounding of the 7 trumpets introduced in Revelation 8 get underway at a Bible Student convention in Cedar Point, Ohio in 1922?
Is this fact found in the Bible or is it just speculation of men that may change at any time?
It's a wonder that the seven narcissistic bug eyed loons running the JW org haven't spotted that they are seven in number and therefore the seven trumpets must refer to them.
That is what I was hoping for... when I was in I always wanted that job 😉
