    I have a single issue copy of that Watchtower January 1st 1989 (Britain - English) with the wording "in our 20th century." - exactly as you show.

    The CD-Rom is exactly as the bound volume you show. - "in our day."

    Love the Awake 1968! Brilliant find.

    What is the month and date of that Awake? Anyone have the English version?

    Well just remember, we are just one stressful moment away from all the Jdubs being empowered to think they are right.

    All you need is for tensions between US and Kim Jong Chubby's regime to be escalated to a near-war climate ( we are not that far). Then JWs will be in a tizzy with anticipation. Once Trump is defeated in next election ( if he doesn't then we might deserve the big A), all Jdubs will once again lick their wounds and wait for the next moment.

    Check out Tightpants Tony at 1:46:25 "the end is imminent!"... apparently he knows better than Jesus who said:

    But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

    Matthew 24:36 [NIV Translation]*

    Tonys closing rant begins at 1:45:10. Armageddon is so close... yet they've already planned a 2018 convention for the summer? Sounds like even he doesn't really believe it.

  • ttdtt

    Hi freddo. The Spanish version is from March 22, 1968. I think that those days the English version was couple month earlier than the Spanish version, but I'm not sure.

    The end is imminent, eh Tony - now what does your very own RNWT say?

    (Luke 21:7, 8) . . .Then they questioned him, saying: “Teacher, when will these things actually be, and what will be the sign when these things are to occur?” 8 He said: “Look out that you are not misled, for many will come on the basis of my name, saying, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The due time is near.’ Do not go after them.

    Wolfman: Thanks for that comparison from the 1/1//89 WT. It was one of the most eye-opening things for me. To think they would actually re-write their own magazine really amazed me. Stand up and admit your mistake or if you are not going to acknowledge your history at least don't re-write it!

    I had always given them credit as being sincere and honestly mistaken and then I saw this and forgot about crediting them with any honesty. And how sincere does that make one.

    Yes, it's 2018 and I'm happy!

    On the other hand we see how the embarrassment for the bORG grows with each passing year. So many are tired of waiting and there's the risk of exposure of their history of false dates. No, They are not happy at all with 2018.

    Yet they refuse to give up 1914 because they know that would be very embarrassing as well.

    But hey... has anyone ever said that it would be easy to be a false prophet?
