JWs Excited Trump Won

    An older JW friend recently told me her reasoning as to why Armageddon is imminent:

    "If Hillary Clinton becomes US president, along with a female British Prime Minister and a lady German Chancellor - this is in blatant opposition to the Bible standard of female submission. With women holding such positions of power on the global stage, how can the world possibly survive?

    The clearest sign yet how mad the world has become ; how far we have strayed from God's purposes for men's and women's natural roles.

    Yes, Armageddon has never been closer."

    A hastily contrived coughing fit disguised my involuntary snort of laughter 😁

    As He sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of Thy coming and of the end of the world?”

    And Jesus answered and said unto them, “Take heed that no man deceive you; for many shall come in My name, saying, ‘I am Christ,’ and shall deceive many.

    And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that ye be not troubled, for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

    JW's have been mind conditioned to think every negative major world event will lead to the GT and the big A.

    To that I say: "not a chance in hell you dumb s***s"

    "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven, with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God." - 1 Thessalonians 4:16 American Standard version

    "My anguish, my anguish! I am pained at my very heart; my heart is disquieted in me; I cannot hold my peace; because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trump . . . Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is laid waste: suddenly are my tents destroyed,and my curtains in a moment. How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the trump." - Jerrmiah 5:19-21 American Standard version

    "By inspiration I came to be in the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a strong voice like that of a trump." - Revelation 1:10 Revised New World translation

    To add to Tenacious comment ," every negative major world event will lead to the GT and the big A"

    I would add ,I presume he was referring to political upheavils ,however it also includes natural disasters also.

    Political decisions made by Goverments that affect religious institutions , like the ARC , etc. , charitable religious organisations that claim non profit status ,that dont fall within that catergory , like the WT organization .

    Lets face it the WTB&TS get the bulk of their money from real estate deals , more recently in New York ,but also worldwide with sales of branch officers , bethel homes , and Kingdom Halls ,reaping in millions of dollars .

    from all over the world , and more importantly a this profit going to Watchtower headquarters in America.

    Can you honestly imagine Jesus Christ engaging in such ventures ?

    As usual …..

    cold war : the end is near

    Tchernobyl : the end is near

    tsunami :the end is near

    Gulf war : the end is near

    9/11 : the end is near

    Big earthquake somewhere : the end is near

    terrorist attacks : the end is near


    So now, Trump and …. the end is near !! Funny, we should have guess !

    You can spend a life time doing this .heart beat going up each time something happens

    in the world .it give a little pepper ….like going to the casino maybe

    Some people dreams to win the lottery

    Others to play ball with a lion on billions dead bodies

    And few days after, you go back to your « normal » life .until the next big thing ...and

    you will start again with your friend ( who wants badly to play ball too ) its now !!the end is near !!!

    Thinking back on this post ,reflection on it , what is the average IQ of jehovahs Witnesses ? , they have been against higher education for God knows how long ? They have been saying the Great Tribulation /Armageddon is just around the corner for over 100 years they have made prophecys that have not eventuated such.....

    as " Millions now living Will never Die", ," What will the 1970`s bring" .".1914 the generation That will Not Pass Away"

    And the founder of IBSA/Jehovahs Witnesses Charles Taze Russell , that 1914 would be the End of the World as we know it,

    So modern day JW`s are now saying Donald Trump is their new hero to bring about mass destruction to the bulk of humanity ?

    To fullfill Jehovahs prophecys ? Are you seeing this GB ?

    Back in the day, when I was but a callow youth, they reckoned that the election of JFK would trigger "great persecution" of JW's on account of him being a Catholic.

    Is this because they are not allowed to get exited about anything else much?

    @ Absolutesbeginners...

    On the other end of the spectrum:

    Cancer and AIDS cured... the end in near...

    Climate change halted... the end is near...

    World peace... the end in near...

    First contact with ETs... the end is near...

    (joking, but not really)
