    So Jehovah is against peace and safety here on earth. Is he jealous because Beelzebub

    is bring peace something the all knowing couldn't do.

    Think about it, if we were at the threshold of peace here on earth and God says hell no I will

    bring destruction. Why????

    Satan is doing the right thing and God steps in and cremates 99.9% of the earth population.

    Makes a lot of sense.

    1 Thessalonians 5:3 Whenever it is that they are saying: “Peace and security!” then sudden destruction is to be instantly upon them just as the pang of distress upon a pregnant woman; and they will by no means escape.

    The timing of when the above is said has to do with when the two witnesses are killed.

    Revelation 11:7 And when they have finished their witnessing, the wild beast that ascends out of the abyss will make war with them and conquer them and kill them. 8 And their corpses will be on the broad way of the great city which is in a spiritual sense called Sod´om and Egypt, where their Lord was also impaled. 9 And those of the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations will look at their corpses for three and a half days, and they do not let their corpses be laid in a tomb. 10 And those dwelling on the earth rejoice over them and enjoy themselves, and they will send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those dwelling on the earth.

    The sudden destruction that occurs is upon the 8th king and it’s supporters.

    Yea how crazy. Revelation says he has to put the though in to their minds to attack the JWs. Wow so much for free will - and they he will kill them for doing what he made them do. Insane.

    How can annihilating 7.4 billion people who are not JW's mean justice??
  • johnamos

    The scripture that you are thinking of has to do with turning on BTG, not the two witnesses.

    Revelation 17:15 And he says to me: “The waters that you saw, where the harlot is sitting, mean peoples and crowds and nations and tongues. 16 And the ten horns that you saw, and the wild beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her devastated and naked, and will eat up her fleshy parts and will completely burn her with fire. 17 For God put it into their hearts to carry out his thought, even to carry out their one thought by giving their kingdom to the wild beast, until the words of God will have been accomplished.

    Certainly you know the WTS/GB (JW’s) are in-correct in what they believe and teach...

    As far as it being just or not for God to annihilate those he will end up doing so to (whatever the number will end up being), you and everyone on this board agree that it is necessary.

    Johnamos: do I understand what you are saying, "it's necessary for God to annihilate X numbers

    of folks?? If so , why? He did that in the great flood, how did that work out?

    Yes, you understood me correctly…

    Right now in this world the way it is now there are people (many people) that will not steal from one another (break in your house, take your car, rob you at gun point for your wallet, etc…) and won’t rape another person (an adult or an child) or murder…so on and so on, basically all the crimes that land people in jail, things that you yourself would view as being crimes.

    If there was a large Island with no people on it but 250,000 people were gather together (people that would not commit such crimes) and relocated to that Island and on it they would have on it all the resources that they needed to live…picture that scenario, etc…

    Now picture just 50,000 people that would commit all of the said crimes now being relocated to this Island…does that not change your original scenario?

    It would be great if just by verbally asking these 50,000 before they step off the boat onto the Island to PLESE not commit any said crimes and they said OK we won’t and that’s that…but if they did not refrain from committing these crimes based on your asking them not to, then what do you suppose should be done to any of these said 50,000 as they individually started committing these crimes against the 250,000???

    The thought that God would sabotage the Devil's attempt to bring about world peace in order to win the cosmic bet is one that has been discussed many times.
