1914 A Historic Year - Watchtower December 1, 2014
...while some of Jehovah's Witnesses, knowing the significance of the 2520 year prophetic period, speculated that this year did see the invisible return of Christ, a better understanding of the scriptures leads us to conclude that this year marked the announcement period of the John the Baptist class.
We bring a heart of wisdom and humility to the revised understanding of the pre-presence announcement period where Jehovah's people have acted as a voice crying out in the wilderness and have prepared the way for the arrival of Christ. Unfaithful Christendom has been totally oblivious to the great preparatory work that has been going on for some 100 years...
..some have even claimed that Jehovah's Witnesses are false prophets. Far from it. Jehovah God has gradually revealed the understanding of this marked year and even though some individuals were wrong in their thinking the facts prove beyond doubt that 1914 was indeed the marked year from Bible prophecy.
...while a hundred years may seem like a long period of time from a human standpoint, surpassing the duration of what is regarded as a generation we must remember that "1 day to Jehovah is as a 1000 years to us" and hence the 100 years of preaching and preparing for the second presence has been just a relatively small amount of time...
