Hey "faithful slave," when did Jesus become king?
w78 3/1 p. 18 par. 15 - "When was God’s Son made a King-Priest like Melchizedek? This was 40 days after his resurrection from the dead, [33 C.E.] when he ascended to heaven."
w13 7/15 p. 6 par. 11 - "In the mid-1990’s,.............It was noted that Jesus became King of God’s Kingdom in 1914."
w12 8/1 p. 17 When Did Jesus Become King? - "Events since 1914 confirm that Jesus became King in that year."
Just curious, in view of the slight discrepancy in your "food at the proper time."
And now in the Silver Sword, the timeline of Bible prophecy at the front shows Satan was cast out in heaven in "about 1914". About. Approximately. Circa. No mention of Jesus taking the throne, either. I sense this date will fall by the wayside in another decade or so. The next wave of JWs will recall the 1914 teaching with the same oblivion many (who are my age) recall the 1925 teaching. Old light.
Excellent find TFG.
When and if 1914 goes, so must 1918 (1st resurrection & rejection of Christendom) and 1919 (F&DS appointment). Nothing left to support the unique authority of Watchtower Society leadership.
Jesus was made king when he left disciples. Ok. It's Mark 16:19. It says After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he has taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. That is the NIV Bible. Guess what ya'll not in the NWT. On Biblegate it mentions earliest manuscripts, blah blah blah. I notice with the Bible anything that really showed who Jesus was, truthful forgiving, etc. it's claimed to maybe not be a part of the Bible, just like when the folks brought a woman that was an adulteress to Jesus and he didn't judge her or nothing, but again that one was taken out to. Mostly in the NWT. So. Mark in the NWT only goes up to verse 8. How convenient, this scripture would really show when Jesus became King. If this is all true.
Colossians 1:13 affirms the existence of "--the kingdom of the Son..."
The invisible kingdom is not even of WT originality.
Watchtower original declaration is that God has a visible kingdom with headquarters in N.Y.
@wake me up I do see a change coming in that regard.
Ok, let it be so. But all these Enthronement and ruler ship aren't visible to humans. What a pity.
JW.org - My Book of Bible Stories - Story 104:
"After Jesus says this, an amazing thing happens. He begins going up into heaven, as you can see here. Then a cloud hides him from sight, and the disciples don’t see Jesus again. Jesus goes to heaven, and he begins to rule over his followers on earth from there."
Good News From God - Lesson 7:
"God’s Kingdom began ruling in 1914. * Jesus’ first action as King was to throw Satan and his demons down to the earth. Satan became furious and began causing trouble throughout the earth."
Jesus’ first action as King was to throw Satan and his demons down to the earth. Satan became furious and began causing trouble throughout the earth."
Hang on ,Satan has always had access to the earth , he tempted Adam and Eve to disobey God ,he has been influencing humans on earth right throughout the Old Testament Hebrew Scriptures.
Notably with his challeng to God with Job`s integrity.
He was also roaming around the earth in Jesus day tempting Jesus over rulership of all the Kingdoms of the earth
According to the Bible Jesus was King at his ascension into heaven about 33 CE he was reigning King and Priest from then on
