Great point that they have already been told that: "the anointed gb will disappear at the beginning of the great tribulation".
With all of the property sell offs, the gb is preparing to "disappear" with all of the money. That is at least part of what is going on.
The rank and file are just being strung along, and some, probably not all, will be shocked when all is said and done.
This whole thing is comical.. And not surprising. many of us predicted these things way back in the late 1990's and early 2000's on the first forums like H2O and others like it.
To all my exjw friends: We will have the last laugh. And within the next few years. I personally feel the watchtower will be gone by 2020. And maybe sooner.
