    Big deal! 30 years from now they will say they are not sure who the king of the north is.

    I just received an email from a friend inviting me to lunch so she could tell me about the "historic and exciting new information" that she heard at the annual meeting.

    Anyone know what I can expect to hear? I just want to be prepared.

    I understand there are two book releases, but what could possibly be so exciting that she would want to come straight home and set up lunch to tell me?

    I can't imagine it's the KON identity...

    Honestly I could care less about who they think is the king of the North ,south . They are village idiots trying to divert attention away from their scandals.

    It's like a kid getting caught with his hand in the cookie jar .

    As far as I know no other religion or religious group gives any thought to the obscure writings of a long dead old testament prophet. Only the WTS who have produced reams of speculative articles down through the years. Why? To tie up the rank and file so that they think their understanding makes them the only true religion on the planet, and diverts their attention away from helping out people in a real sense like genuine Christians are called upon to do. Interpretation of obscure passages is all guesswork at best but doing it makes the F&DS look special in the eyes of the average JW.

    Yawn. We've seen it all before.

    Just to clarify a point for those who weren`t around or were too young during the "Cold War"

    Russia back then was known as the USSR ,The Union Of Soviet Socialist Republics that consisted of a number of East European Countries under the control and domination of Russia.

    The book produced by the WT society "Your Will Be Done On Earth" about Daniels prophecy`s named the USSR the group of nations and not Russia alone as the king of The North at that time.

    And when the USSR crumbled with the fall of the Berlin wall the USSR ceased to exist .And the Nations that were under Russian control got their independence

    And the king of the North was no longer identifiable according to the WT. at that time in the early 1990`s .

    It is absurd to think that the Bible ever had in mind anything other than the political powers of its own time in the second century BCE. Why should we today be the focus of all the attention?

    This is because Daniel wrote that God told that the prophecies aren't for his time:

    As for you, Daniel, keep the words secret, and seal up the book until the time of the end.e Many will rove about,* and the true knowledge will become abundant

    Maybe this is a stupid question, but, north of where? Why "north?"

    maybe theres 2 kings of the north that overlap as in the king of true north and the king of magnetic north.

    Such a joke. I guess they do it to keep the R&F in line and interested - but they must know they are spouting BS.

    Don't you think?

    I can.

    Never underestimate the JWs ability to underwhelm you with information that they think is earth-shattering but in reality is an utterly meaningless triviality.
