There are approximately 7.7 billion people on the earth today.
There are only approximately 8.7 million Jehovah’s Witnesses on the earth today (this includes those who don't believe but are stuck in the religion because they’d lose their families if they left).
That means that Jehovah’s Witnesses make up 0.11% of the population.
So, in answer to your question, what will Jehovah do to save 0.11% of humans when the end comes? (Although this number will be less because at least a quarter of Jehovah’s Witnesses likely don't even believe the religion anymore).
The answer: He’ll slaughter 99.89% of humans on the planet.
- The mentally ill
- The disabled
- The infirm
- Their non-Jehovah’s Witness relatives
- Good, honest, kind people who fed the hungry, clothed the naked, housed the homeless.
- People who believed the bible, believed in Jesus but not the Jehovah’s Witness interpretation of it.
How will he do this? Fortunately, the Jehovah’s Witness literature tells us… in graphic detail:
A terrible flesh-eating plague will destroy many. Says Jehovah: “Their flesh shall rot while they are still on their feet, their eyes shall rot in their sockets, and their tongues shall rot in their mouths”. Eaten up will be the tongues of those who scoffed and laughed at the warning of Armageddon! Eaten up will be the eyes of those who refused to see the sign of the time of the end! Eaten up will be the flesh of those who would not learn that the living and true God is named Jehovah!" - From the Jehovah’s Witness children's book Paradise Lost to Paradise Regained 1958 pp.208-209
Remember that scene from Raiders Of The Lost Ark?… that.
A woman holding her dead baby during Armageddon… for the crime of not being Jehovah’s Witnesses. From the Jehovah’s Witness children's book “Learn From The Great Teacher”.
According to Jehovah’s Witness official beliefs, the non-Jehovah’s Witness children have to die, because otherwise they’ll be raised as non-Jehovah’s Witnesses.
"What will happen to young children at Armageddon? The Bible does not directly answer that question, and we are not the judges. However, the Bible does show that God views the young children of true Christians as "holy." (1 Cor. 7:14) It also reveals that in times past when God destroyed the wicked he likewise destroyed their little ones." - Reasoning from the Scriptures pp.47-48
"Children are affected by the course of their parents, and parents are warned that their iniquity is visited on their offspring unto the third and fourth generation. (Ex. 20:5, 6) Parents are commanded to instruct their children in God's way, and if in these last days parents refuse to heed the divine instruction and warning they bring destruction upon themselves and their small children at Armageddon. (Deut. 6:6, 7; Eph. 6:4) According to justice God can leave such children dead, for, as Ezekiel showed, all die in their iniquity." - Watchtower 1950 Nov 15 p.463
"By all the evidences this system of things is hastening to its final confrontation with the God of justice at Armageddon. Parents and children who fail to gain the "mark on their foreheads," that is, an adequate appreciation of God's moral standard, are sure to suffer. Parents will be held accountable for their children, and children will suffer for the failure of their parents." - Watchtower 1968 Feb 1 pp.83-84
Not only that, but according to official doctrine the survivors will be sorted into scouting teams and “rejoice” in spending seven months burying the rotten corpses of babies, children, men and women - including the disabled and mentally ill:
With such a glorious feast of victory concluded, only the bones, bones from one end of the earth to the other, will be left for burial. What a task that will be for the survivors, to cleanse the earth of every remaining evidence of Gog’s forces! Even with the work well organized it will take seven months, Jehovah says, just to bury the bones. Scouting corps will be sent out on a full-time basis to search the land thoroughly and, when bones are found, markers will be set up for those with the spades and shovels who follow. Those privileged to share in that cleanup work will not view it as a revolting and disgusting assignment but will rejoice to be alive when Gog’s long and oppressive rule has come to an end and when the wicked are no more. Survivors of Armageddon will be happy and will greatly rejoice to have a share in preparing the earth for a global paradise of beauty and perfection under the reign of the King Christ Jesus. - Watchtower, 1 August 1956, page 465, para. 17
To Jehovah’s Witnesses, this slaughter of 99.89% of humans alive today is considered a good thing and something they actually look forward to and pray for.
For those in opposition to Jehovah, it will be extremely confusing and terrible. - Michael Philipp
Through his son Jesus he will remove all wicked people and those who listened to and followed all the false religions and all the governments to allow all those exercising faith in his son’s ransom sacrifice to live forever in paradise on earth along with the billions who will be restored to life. - Stephen Macready
He will unleash the Army of the heavens. He is Jehovah of Armies! Jesus is coming with his powerful angels. The faithful and true 144,000 kings will be in the fight. Jesus will carry out his mission more pinpoint than any man made weapons of destruction. Mere toys they will be. Who will survive? The ones that Jehovah wants to save and protect. - Reggie Hammons (By all means, read his full answer. It’s almost orgasmic in anticipation of the coming genocide).
This is the message Jehovah’s Witnesses are supposed to be warning you about. This is the message Jehovah’s Witnesses claim you’re rejecting.
But most people are unaware that Jehovah’s Witnesses actually believe this, because they aren't “warning you about this” at all.
They don't tell you this message straight up. Instead they ask you some generic question about Jesus or the bible in general. Because if they told you all of this at the door you'd likely think it's a mad cult or something.
JWs have already identified as "pagans" because one aspect of their mark is this: "And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? (Mathew 5:47) Hence aftermath of Armageddon will not be like the way JWs teach.
It's beyond crazy how I took this stuff for granted when mentally in, especially the things in the children's books.
1Anthony "expensive scotch" Morris seems to revel in the thought of this destruction he wishes on people. Perhaps he forgets the thoughts from Ezekiel 33:11 Say to them, ‘As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, people of Israel?’
I ask JWs how fair is it for God to permanently destroy 8 billion in the 21st century while raising virtually all those who die before Armageddon and giving them a chance at eternal life? Why should the timing of one's death determine one's eternal destiny?
I knew the children's books were bad but had not seen the pic of mother holding dead baby, disgusting. If the general public knew just what the jw's teach children they might be finished sooner rather than later. The epitome of a true hate group.
In old wars the bones were gathered and ground into fertilizer. Officers (noblemen) maybe got a burial.
Dead people really stink, and dont forget the maggots
Behold, the Lord lays the earth waste, devastates it, twists its surface, and scatters its inhabitants. And the people will be like the priest, the servant like his master, the female servant like her mistress, the buyer like the seller, the lender like the borrower, the creditor like the debtor. The earth will be completely laid waste and completely plundered, for the Lord has spoken this word. The earth dries up and crumbles away, the mainland dries out and crumbles away, the exalted of the people of the earth dwindle. The earth is also defiled by its inhabitants, for they violated laws, altered statutes, and broke the everlasting covenant. Therefore, a curse devours the earth, and those who live on it suffer for their guilt. Therefore, the inhabitants of the earth decrease in number, and few people are left.
The Bible shows that will be an end of this system of things. God will decide trough his appointed Judge and King who will live or not. In the end in not about who dies. We all do unless the change happens in our existence. It's all about standing against all the pressure and the stigma of being associated with God in the near turbulent future and then receiving the blessings prepared by God to all that love Him.
Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
