he ensured that his Word was completely fulfilled from his standpoint and not from a human standpoint .
That is why the beginning and end points of the 70 years from (his standpoint) could seem to mismatch what history or science thinks. “I will cause the wisdom of the wise man to perish.” “Something strange.” Who was to think that the “disgusting thing” was in fact prophetically the idolatrous standards worshipped by the Roman armies —The irony.
The sight of watching (first hundreds then thousands) JW “Bethelites” marching and stamping their feet through Court street aka walking ( Supreme, Criminal, Family) 7 days a week, 24 hours a day for a century with WT buildings higher and overlooking all secular buildings in the area that prosecuted and tried to stamp JW out —was triumphal. How poetic. In the long run what remains to be seen is either the debunKINGs and disCREDITING of the JW f DISCREET s. Or the utter vindication of the JW if BTG is destroyed and if the GT hits. In the meantime as scholar eloquently advocates, JW theology is plausible. It has not been falsified.
I remember the Godfather’s speech in the book: “I am a superstitious man…” The Roman armies fulfilling Bible prophecy was no coincidence and neither was Nation against Nation WWI in 1914 which convinces JW that the 7X interpretation that uses the 607 and 537 points is correct. Funny coincidence, the word “point” occurs 2x with reference to Jerusalem 1 king Nebuchanezzar using uncanny power, and 2 Jesus reference to pointed stake, both spelling destruction.
