Re: The Origin of the Term Armageddon

Thank you for raising this topic Bobcat - was just about to hit the sack for the night when I spotted your post. I have had a recurring gut feeling and thought annoyance in my head that Armageddon is/will be a quite different event or "happening" to my JW taught mind. I have entertained a range of s...

Re: There Will be Wars and Rumors of Wars

Matt 24:4 I think Jesus said that to indicate that wars and reports of wars could be used by some to promote the belief that he is “present”

Re: There Will be Wars and Rumors of Wars

If we were to do a search of WT Library for a single verse - actually two single verses, Matt 24:4 and Luke 21:8 Not much comes up. The one in Matthew is a “heads up” as to false markers that deceivers might use. READ IT. Think about it. The one in Luke is never mentioned in WT publications. Please ...

Re: Parousia and When Jesus Begins Ruling

This list of scriptures from post #1 is worthy of consideration. Mt 24:27 The parousia would be something universally recognized, not something seen only by a select few. Mt 24:37, 39 Parousia illustrated with comparison to "days of Noah" (leading up to the flood) and with destruction by the flood. ...

Re: Parousia and When Jesus Begins Ruling

Looking at his Kingship from the other (or another) angle. His death. Rom 5:14 “Yet, death ruled from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin in the same way Adam did when he disobeyed. Adam is an image of the one who would come.” ‭‭ Rom 5:17 “It is certain that death ...

Re: Many Abodes

Thanks Victor, Perhaps it would be prudent to not think of "Abodes" as only two "locations" - earth or heaven. Jesus has shown us many possibilities and if we were to limit that to "being" Earth or Heaven, that shows indicates a limited thought process. Remember, "eye has not seen and ear has not he...
