Why is the "faithful slave" not declaring the COMPLETE kingdom message?
w16 January p. 26 par. 15 - "During the last days, Jehovah has continued to select those who will make up the 144,000. If he chooses to wait until late into that period to select some for that privilege, who are we to question his wisdom?"
During the past 80 years, thanks to the "slave's" direction, J.W.'s have never preached the complete good news to people of all the nations, namely, that they can have the hope of living on a paradise earth forever, or they could become king/priests in heaven. How could inspired men fail to proclaim such a crucial Bible teaching?
If he chooses to wait until late into that period to select some for that privilege, who are we to question his wisdom?
An excuse to answer the reason why the anointed number keeps rising.
The WTS plays and manipulates people's minds, particularly when certain proclamations are made.
( the early IBSA members and following JWS were self identified as being the anointed )
That number wasn't suppose to climb as the years progressed but it has for the logical reason that there are more participating JWS worldwide and the age demographic as well.
The WTS has been well versed in Bullshitting so creating more bullshit to cover their previous bullshit isn't much of a stretch.
You could answer, "Who's questioning Jehovah? We're questioning you."
"There are NO new remnant." - This is a direct quote from Nathan Knorr, third president of the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society and member of the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses. He said this at the dedication of the Natick, Massachusetts Assembly Hall in the early 1970's. I guess 'ole Nathan was an Apostate and didn't even know it!
The real logical reason is the WTS/JWS were never the faithful slave because of its unscriptural date setting, the bible does state how to identify a false prophet though.
Maybe the WTS should have paid more accurate attention to the bible then spending more time trying to proliferate their literature to the public.
It's about being exclusive , the heavenly hope is reserved for JW missionaries only. No one is taught that the heavenly hope might apply to them.
