    I just recieved this note from one of our faithful and discreet slaves..

    Keep an eye out for the March 2005 KM. Word is that the Awake will only be published once a month starting in January 2006.

    Another sign of the work slo-oo-wing down....if true..

  • stillajwexelder

    Hell this is incredible news if true - wil lit remain at 32 pages per month - or maybe they will publish once per month but go to say 48 pages or even 64

  • Elsewhere

    Ahhh haaa! I've been waiting for a cut-back in their magazines!

    Good news... good news...

  • AlanF

    Maybe the braindead editor-in-chief, Harry Peloyan, is finally getting too feeble (physically, I mean) to keep going.


  • Dustin

    Maybe if no one donates anymore they'll stop printing that crap alltogether.

    If that's true, it will be earth-shaking news at dubland. But they will rationalize it away, anyway, saying that it will be "simplification" since "the day is drawing near".

    Moreover, it will fulfill the prophecies of a few posters here, like Metatron.

    One more thing: if they "simplify" the Awake magazine, they should be ashamed of boasting that they alone "fulfill" the words of Isaiah 65:13:

    Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah has said: "Look! My own servants will eat, but YOU yourselves will go hungry. Look! My own servants will drink, but YOU yourselves will go thirsty. Look! My own servants will rejoice, but YOU yourselves will suffer shame.

    The more changes they make the better. The downsizing of Satan's Jaracz' org. is a good thing.

    Well, according to the WTS, God speaks to us through the WT. I wonder who speaks through the Awake?


    w03 2/15 p. 31 Questions From Readers ***

    What, then, of the word that his servants hear from behind? It is reasonable to conclude that the voice from behind is God?s voice from the past, speaking through his written Word as it is made plain through his "faithful steward." (Luke 12:42) God?s modern-day servants hear his voice by diligently studying the Bible and by applying its principles in their life with the help of publications prepared by "the faithful and discreet slave," "the faithful steward." By looking to, being alert to, the timely direction that the Grand Instructor provides and by studying the Word of God, written centuries ago, his servants figuratively see him in front of them and hear his voice from behind.?Romans 15:4.

    Regularly and progressively such a great crowd are receiving their spiritual food through the columns of the eighty-one-year-old instrument in the hands of the "slave" class, The Watchtower, the religious magazine with the largest circulation in the world.

    What has been the principal means through which the anointed "slave" class has distributed the "food"? Clearly, for over 100 years it has been The Watchtower.


    w89 3/15 p. 22 Insight That Jehovah Has Given ***


    Watchtower is the principal instrument used by the "slave" class for dispensing spiritual food.


    km 6/98 p. 4 Caring for the Master?s Belongings ***

    And the Watchtower magazine has been a major instrument in supplying "food at the proper time" to "the household of God" and their companions, the "great crowd" of "other sheep.

    *** km 7/93 pp. 1-2 Making Good Use of The Watchtower and Awake! ***

    The Watchtower is a key instrument in the spiritual feeding program of Jehovah?s people.
