I kind of think they are feeling an angst among the R&F. As if the Society's prophetic abilities have come to a standstill.
A gentle slow horror is moving into the JW congregations, especially in the U.S. and Europe.
The unthinkable is becoming more and more apparent...the current Governing Body is lost. They have no clear instructions from Jehovah. God is leaving them in the dark; clearly evident by their continual adjusting and poor decision making.
(Matthew 24:45) 45 “Who really is the faithful and discreet slave whom his master appointed over his domestics, to give them their food at the proper time?
Brother Morris is not confident that Jehovah is with the Governing Body; the "food at the proper time" is being withheld from them. They are striking in the dark.
They have become an embarrassment!
I read this only again yesterday ...Look my own servant will eat, but your 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
... Isa 65:13
Here's my bit of speculation concerning the king of the North.
This is the king of the North
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permanent ... ty_Council
Only these countries (allies of WW1&2) have veto rights. In other words, these countries control all decisions on world security issues.
Speaking of the king of the north and south, Dan 11:40 says ... in the time of the end the king of the south will engage with him in pushing, and against him, the king of the north will storm with chariots and horsemen and with many ships and will certainly enter into lands and flood over and pass through. And he will also enter into the land of decoration and there will be many lands that will be made to stumble ... and he will keep thrusting out his hand against the lands and as regards the land of Egypt; she will not prove to be an escapee and he will actually rule over all the hidden treasures ... and all the desirable things of Egypt
oil and the Lybians and Ethiopians will be at his steps
... Dan 11:40-43 Recent history will tell you that the exempted countries mentioned in verse 41, including the Lybians and Ethiopians, have been taken over or are in the process of being taken over (by regime change) - to secure access to this hidden treasure, namely oil.
So the king of the north rules supreme until there are ... reports that will disturb him out of the rising sun
east and out of the north
... These reports come out of his own backyard, they are fellow permanent members of the security council itself, namely China and Russia. And the king of the North, namely the principal members of the team, GB & U.S. with NATO (the Nth American Treaty Org) in tow ... will certainly plant his palatial tents between the seas
or the Mediterranean and the holy mountain of Decoration
as it was known in Daniel's day. The prime minister of GB said at this point in time GB had no plans to move its Embassy to Jerusalem as President Trump had donehttps://www.timesofisrael.com/theresa-m ... jerusalem/
. ... and he will have come all the way to his end and there will be no helper for him
... Note it does not say he is conquered, which seems to indicate that although WW3 might be in the offing it will not come to that. My guess is that the U.S. petrodollar will collapse, which will mean a total collapse of the U.S. economy. Armies live on their stomachs - they need to be fed. Regardless of overwhelming odds, historical examples show wars being lost before they were started because of a lack of supplies.
It continues ... but during that time
... the time of the end Dan 11:40 ...Michael will stand up, the great prince the great prince who is standing in behalf of the sons of your people
... Dan 12:1 This would have occurred at some point in time between the WW1 and now. As to when exactly is anybody's guess, but many have woken up and knowledge has become abundant particularly with the advent of the internet, and religions are in turmoil, and separation work does appear to be in progress Dan 12:2,4, 9,10.
For what it's worth that's my 2c worth.
