The Watchtower has been guilty of saying the end is near, right around the corner, and so on. They had even set certain times, such as the fall of 1975 that the end of this system of things will pass away. They have done it before, and when it did not happen they blamed the rank and file of making up this stuff. When Matthew and Mark both say no one knows the day or hour. I took these verses from their very own bible.
Matthew 25:13 “Keep on the watch, therefore, because you know neither the day nor the hour.
Mark 13:32 “Concerning that day or the hour nobody knows, neither the angels in heaven nor the Son, but the Father.
This scripture shows them for what they really are, a false prophet, and what they are deserving of, and I'm talking about the leadership of the Watchtower.
20 “‘If any prophet presumptuously speaks a word in my name that I did not command him to speak or speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet must die. 21 However, you may say in your heart: “How will we know that Jehovah has not spoken the word?” 22 When the prophet speaks in the name of Jehovah and the word is not fulfilled or does not come true, then Jehovah did not speak that word. The prophet spoke it presumptuously. You should not fear him.’
