    I want to buy a copy not a copy of one but the actual copy of a 1989 Jan 1st watchtower. Let me know I would like to have one to show someone I am talking to about it.

    REDUCED TO CLEAR Watchtower Magazine Bound Volumes buy individually or bulk | eBay

    There's one on ebay being sold in UK - its the bound volume though.

    I have the bound volume. The cult changed the wording form the single mag to the BV. I need the single mag to show the difference.

    Isn’t this the one where they said that the ministry work would be completed in the twentieth century.?

    At a group study one Tuesday in the early nineties an old sister commented that we knew this because the Watchtower had said so. We all said “ no, they would not say that “ but she insisted. After the study someone got a bound volume and it did not say it. She was perplexed, “ I keep it and read it over for comfort, she said” A bro. Got his car out and ran her home to get it.

    Sure enough, the single original mag said it but the bound volume didn’t!

    Reminds me of Orwell’s 1984 when he was employed doctoring past newspapers to make it look as though the Government had achieved their commitments.

    Great comment, Bluesbrother! 😀

    He who controls the past controls the future” BB this is where the WT employs the Mandella effect. For example most of us recall peanut butter brand as "Jiffy", but go look in your cabinet and the name on the jar is "JIF".

    Here is a side by side comparison of what was said in the original magazine vs the bound volume.

    In the english LIBRARY it's changed also.

    BUT NOT in the german library:

    *** w89 1. 1. S. 12 Abs. 8 „Die Hand Jehovas [war] mit ihnen“ ***

    Der Apostel Paulus ging im christlichen Missionardienst führend voran. Er legte auch die Grundlage für ein Werk, dessen Vollendung in das 20. Jahrhundert fällt.

    A digital copy of the English magazine can be seen here. It is the entire January 1, 1989, issue of both the original Watchtower magazine and the bound volume.
