The Two Main Problems Jehovah’s Witnesses Must Face in Time
What this article will explain is that there are two major problems with Jehovah’s witnesses, one is easier to eventually fix than the other. And we have a REPEATING prophecy development which is to be outlined to conclude this article, which first becomes visible as activating even now in the modern JW apostasy development (Dan8:13-14; Zech3:1-3) and all the actual globalism-sovereign-development details apostate GB-worshiping Jehovah’s witnesses are now covering up and distracting attention away from especially since 1990. Since these two conditions are related, the criminal lawlessness which guides Jehovah’s witnesses ministry by means of a self-appointed actually illegal Governing Body is developing criminality in spiritual and secular dimensions while covering up the progress of prophecy along the eventual objective of the globalization process as it is revealed in prophecy.
Criminal Lawlessness is Hard to Fix
1. The harder to address problem in the now criminally backed JW ministry is the Governing Body tyrannically enforced lawless policy context practiced by JWs for a global-reproach which has also transformed JWs into a globally increasingly known gang of spiritual-bandits helping the GB steal people’s wealth and faith— that problem is not so easy to fix, it will require the judgment aids from beyond human and its clarifying aftermath. (Dan8:13-14; Zech3:1-9; Rev8:1-12; Matt22:1-14, etc) In addition, making this more difficult, is the GB and JWs by means of this now terminal criminal record will leave what remains of the then cancelled JW ministry with a horrible, sordid and criminal reputation on the global record which will cause problems with the credibility of the eventual prophecy rectification summary, even after the GB and JW Organization are desolated.
Prophecy Error is Easier to Fix
2. Driven by the same “Governing Body” and corporate style of “rule by committee”, a “committee” of criminals by the way, there are some prophecy errors and glitches which undermine faith in the former prophecy framework. These can be fixed more easily, to be aided by the judgment context as well, because the correct matching patterns in this very JW apostasy (Dan11:30-32a) and the world sovereign-development it now covers up fully since 1990 3rd United Nations global-presentation are all very logical when applied to known erred prophecy in Daniel 8 and Daniel 11:27-45 which are actually descriptions of advanced globalization systems in a progressive maturation to a world government— not the national-system “nation-state” entities the former errors in interpretation have allowed the Governing Body to merely keep extending into modern diversionary deception.
In relation to the 607BCE-1914 CE retained error a SIMPLE historic-based adjustment fixes the glitch in that 607 Jerusalem destruction date+event error. All these notable apostasy and cover-up patterns (Dan8:12) are already present in prophecy AND the record of the modern Jehovah’s witnesses organization which will aid the rectifying summary when it does manifest— the GB is merely purposely ignoring them to continue to lead JWs like Lemmings into clear apostasy and error, and eventually, worse. Thus, the worse it gets in the JW ministry with criminal activity becoming globally known, the more it is able to be matched to the final apostasy prophecy (Dan11:30-32; Dan8:12) which must be concealed by the apostate Governing Body of Frauds for obvious reasons. The drawback is the criminal activities of JWs are turning many people away from God in global stumbling (Dan11:32-35; Dan 11:40b) and reproach which will undermine the rectification phase credibility.
(And please note, this modern JW focused clear terminal apostasy is faith-strengthening when you KNOW it is fulfilling modern apostasy prophecy right in front of our eyes, a prerequisite signal apostasy (2Thess2:1-4, Dan11:30b-32a, Dan8:11-13) which always leads to a judgment as in times past (Hosea1: 4-7), in this case the final temple judgment cycle that ignites the whole final seven trumpet final full Revelation 8-11 fulfillment cycle of the future— along with its seven plague parallel global-developmental context prophecy. (Rev15-16)) The prophecy of apostasy concerning the Governing Body “man of lawlessness” in the JW ministerial context is made doubly certain because the apostasy prophecies of Daniel 8:11-14, 23-25 and Daniel 11:30-35 manifest with globalist “king” developments towards world government from the post Cold War fall of the USSR context when globalization progress greatly accelerated to recognize the “King Fierce of Countenance” and “King North” must be convergent with 8th King globalism based progress towards world government.
That being the case, the Governing Body rogue-apostate authority while clearly lawless and apostate are also aiding the diversion of the prophecy in erred dead ends which advance nowhere but to reinforce the fear-hyped deception for their premature “the end of the world” current forecast while concealing the true intent and nature of the globalization process towards eventual complete world government which is also where the prophecy tracks that development as the trigger-development of the Christ arrival of the future.
Retained Prophecy Error
(2 Thessalonians 2:9-12) But the lawless one’s presence is according to the operation of Satan with every powerful work and lying signs and portents 10 and with every unrighteous deception for those who are perishing, as a retribution because they did not accept the love of the truth that they might be saved. 11 So that is why God lets an operation of error go to them, that they may get to believing the lie, 12 in order that they all may be judged because they did not believe the truth but took pleasure in unrighteousness.
As we see in the above, what begins as an operation of error becomes the lie in time. By leaving all global development meanings unexplained in relation to real prophecy for decades in lieu of the Governing Body Show Stall, purposely ignoring new globalism development meanings matching prophecy, the former errors of Fred Franz interpretations soon become purposely covered-up prophecy by modern GB lies; that is, these prophecies could have been updated with convincing evidence on the final objective of globalism, but they have been ignored by the liars in the WTBTS (Rev2:2).
These errors are in specifically Daniel 8 and 11 in JW print since 1957-58 and more recently in the 1999 “Pay [ZERO] Attention to Daniel’s Prophecy” book, which were former interpretation attempts made prior to the modern period when globalism system developments toward world government became widely known as they must define the final 8th King and King North prophecy symbols as synonymous. Today by organized purposeful ignorance, the Governing Body of Jehovah’s witnesses have concealed prophecy fulfilling upon the globalization to world government meaning into outright lies of a ministerial cover-up campaign managed by the Governing Body of Jehovah’s witnesses, while they also spiritually subvert Jehovah’s witnesses as in Daniel 8:12.
Thus, in hindsight, the WTBTS/GB partnership with the UN System is more than just a UN NGO, they continue to omit modern UN prophecy fulfillment and progress to signal complete world government from the JW ministry for a stumbling campaign of modern JW criminal lawlessness instead. And now by means far more direct than the UN NGO function, the WTBTS are UN consultants aiding UN IGOs lobby for UN all over the world, as with the OSCE in Europe. Thus, when the UN disassociated JWs from the UN NGO, JWs did not hop off the wildbeast. Rather, they continue to ride the wildbeast as now full-blown organized UN lobbyists for world government.
Due to this clear GB led treason, now Jehovah’s supposed witnesses do more to cover up modern prophecy in allegiance and blind-obedience to their sin-infested Governing Body of Liars (Rev2:2), while playing the premature “end of the world” deception instead, which is misleading and deceptive. (2Thess2:1-2) As Jehovah’s witnesses attempt to convince people in their ministry the world could end tomorrow— which is now a lie, as the prophecy must run the full course instead, they ply the same blind-confusion of the world to their ministerial audience susceptible to this hyped up use of fear and anxiety for controlling purposes. (Matt24:6; Luke21:9; 1Thess5:1-3)
When the Music is Over and the Lights Finally Come On in JWLand
But what is being covered up now in grand manner by the GB and JWs, will come out with more force, attention and focus when it does emerge over the rubble of the soon-to-be desolated JW Organization (which marks the desolation requirement of Daniel 8:13 modern temple judgment prophecy), and much of that attention due to the colossal scale of the global-bad-reputation JWs have built for themselves by GB lead. That is, what is coming up in a final global “sword stroke” context globally which seems as “doomsday” by many (“as if slaughtered to death” Rev13:3), will instead “heal” globally into the full and completely globalized “8th King” “King North” World Government entity— the terminus of all sovereign prophecy this whole time! True, it must become the “tribulation of those days” phase of Matthew 24:29-31 in the Daniel 11:42-43 King South 7th King subservience by sword-stroke context, but it is not “the end” as Jesus stated at Matthew 24:6, it has to recover into an 8th King King North World Government and its global-final-mantra of a proclaimed “world peace” (1Thess5:1-3) with that recovery phase along with the signal deposition of Babylon the Great under complete world government.
There is an example of how the GB retains the error that “Babylon the Great is destroyed first and next” contrary to the clear prophetic sequences of Revelation 16:17-20, Revelation 17:11-18 which clearly shown in the prophecy timeline that Babylon the Great is deposed at the end of the global process, after world government is complete as the official legal deposing entity.
And what makes this even more believable even now, but doubly so in the future, is that same “world-war-to-world-government-presentation” pattern which has been used after WW1, WW2 and Cold WW3, MUST BE REPEATED in the future. It also must become the same general pattern of distraction-to-enlightenment spiritually, over a global-crisis context activating, maturing and passing which is the overall pattern global-context which also occurred in 1914-1918 period to the 1919-1922 period with World War 1. This is the manner in which the International Bible Students Association (IBSA) active-ministry emerged from the World War 1 crisis and global-distraction and began to enlighten many (Dan12:3) by explaining in clearer convincing updated manner more and more about the prophecy after the fact through the 1920s and after for decades up until this modern JW apostasy once again took a detour into diversion .
That is the IBSA ministry, unbeknownst to itself at the time, began a “Kingdom Proclamation” in 1914 which spanned a distracting World War 1 context which resulted directly with the fulfillment of the post-WW1 “image of the wildbeast” presentation to fulfill the Revelation 13:11-15 (Dan7:25, Dan12:7, Rev11:2-3, Rev12:6, Rev13:5) signal prophecy of the time in that globalist League of Nations global-presentation as the first clear step to a world government managed “new world order” eventual; wherein the League is the “image” and nucleus representative of world government progressing over time into the eventual full “8th King” meaning of a complete world government of the future.
That same pattern is what the modern JW apostate ministry will go down into in the future global “sword-stroke” crisis, but the requirement of Revelation 10:11 and Revelation 11:2-3 is that a final open salvation fronted Kingdom Proclamation for the Messianic Kingdom maturing entity must also make an announcement in this global-crisis period, that is why there are TWO “witnesses” representing TWO witnessing periods in Revelation 11. That final witnessing ministry must give warning of the ramifications of 8th King World Government which is what will manifest from the crisis when it resolves, as it did in WW1, WW2, and Cold WW3, into that UN centered “image” of the complete world government “8th King” entity. This time, rather than just a League of Nations or United Nations “image of the wildbeast” presentation, this time in the future it must mature into the complete “scarlet wildbeast” world government “8th King” “King North”.
The Main Prophecy Pattern of 1914-1918 and 1919-1922 REPEATS in Exact Global-Crisis-Context Form in the Future Towards Complete “8th King” “King North” World Government
Now what will be easier to see as we move forward, is this final cycle of Revelation REPEATING prophecy will also, in time, manifest a final “Kingdom Proclamation” in another, for now unknown, global-crisis context of the future to eventually resolve into the final WORLD GOVERNMENT actual entity in complete and stated form, along with its now familiar “United Nations” “image of the wildbeast” as one whole “abomination”— no matter how they may rebrand the then re-ascendant United Nations (impotent to prevent the final “sword-stroke”) image-entity of that time and the world government it will represent. (Rev17:11-13; Rev11:7 future final wildbeast “ascension”).
This same global-formula of WW1 was also used after WW2, and the Cold WW3, to result in historic global UN presentations after those wars in 1919, 1945 and 1990— so the formulaic pattern of “world-war-to-world-government-presentation” is well tested and to be present finally in 4 cycles, predicting a fourth global-cycle use of this formula is now self-predicting, it is plainly logical now how this formula works. The IBSA and JWs did explain the first 2 United Nations related presentation meanings as prophecy after the 1920s and after 1945— but they ignored the 1990 post Cold World War 3 cycle by the lead of their apostate Governing Body, thus breaking the now actual UN1-2-3 prophecy continuum to the eventual UN4 global-presentation of the future, as overall UN1-2-3-4 in history. The United Nations is the globally-presented representative global “image” of an eventual complete world government as its international nucleus, “image” of— even though world government itself is larger than the UN, the UN being only its “executive branch”. Complete world government must also have an all-controlling corporate administered financial and military power-sectors at global monopolized scale. (Dan11:42-43; Rev17:8-18).

Now we can see how the 1914-1918, 1919-1922 global pattern and prophecy pattern of “world-war-to-world-government” principle is to be repeated in the future. It must become the same global-pattern of the “sword-stroke”-to-“healing”-to-“world government” pattern, that same “world-war-to-world-government” principle and pattern, but in the future in full Christ triggering final global-sovereign form of complete 8th King King North WORLD GOVERNMENT. It is what the Governing Body of Jehovah’s witnesses have been concealing fully since 1990.
Two Witnesses for Two 1260 Days Patterns as 2520 Days as Final “Seven Times”
The definitive logic for Revelation’s main prophecy of spiritual and global event gauging sevens in trumpets and plagues REPEATING next for two fulfillments is in the logic of the TWO witnesses prophecy of Revelation 11; (Rev10:11). There are TWO “witnesses” because there are TWO global Kingdom witnessings which must complete in also the final “seven times” “gentile times” principle but as 2520 DAYS when both 1260 days periods are completed since 1914-1918’s 1260 day manifestation ended up leading to the future final 1260 days “last witness” Kingdom Proclamation of the “TWO witnesses” “final witnessing” for eventually two global witnessing periods. That is also how we know the same 1914-1918 (Dan7:25; Dan12:7; Rev11:2-3; Rev12:14; Rev13:5) and 1919-1922 (Dan12:11) timings and patterns will repeat in the future along the same prophecy continuum and along the same Kingdom proclamation plot, but in final form this time. This time, due to JW terminal apostasy, the Daniel 8:13-14 temple judgment events and timing precede the “final witnessing” 1260 days of the “Two Witnesses” of Revelation 11 for a signal temple judgment, desolation and cleansing preceding preparation. Fixing JW errors is what must occur to actually announce a valid prophecy update.
The JW Prophecy Fix Basics
Revelation’s First Fulfillment
The current Revelation prophecies from the Rutherford to Fred Franz era are accurate in the principle of what they explain as far as a sovereign time limit warning to be given fully before the Christ arrival into complete 8th King world government and the meaning of the timed period of 1260 days in Revelation 11:2-3, Revelation 12:6 and Revelation 13:5 as that did occur in the “first witness” 1914-1922 phase. But those dated Revelation commentaries do lack a complete clear connection to the globalist system meaning as the target world government “8th King” development as the single future terminus of all structured sovereign prophecy timelines over history since Babel of Genesis 11’s time to the eventual full “scarlet wildbeast” world government along with its UN “image” as one whole in the future.
In addition, the final Revelation cycle is about the judgment from God on the apostasy in Jehovah’s witnesses to manifest in the future in Revelation 8-9”s judgment-to-recovery final fulfillment as parallel of Zechariah 3:1-5, Malachi 3:1-5, Daniel 8:13-14 and 1Peter 4:17. This means “Christendom” is not the priority, the JW apostasy has out-sinned them and takes higher priority in the final Revelation fulfillment— and this is also why the GB remains silent about their own apostate reality and that of the JW ministry they mislead and due to that when the judgment is complete they will be revealed and exposed in full detail. (2Thess2:3-4)
The Daniel 2,8,11-12 Decoys
But it is the errors in Daniel 2, 4, 8 and 11-12 which are the most serious in the current overridden JW theology framework, they are all applied to nation-state entities which must be overcome by the forces of the ascendant globalization system (Dan11:42-43) so the errors in those Daniel prophecies are very deceptive, outdated and misleading now. Since the nation-state “old world order” system is matured and in retrograde conditions, the GB keeps JWs focused on this national governance system because it aids the idea that it is pretty much over for the nation-state as the “end all” of prophecy which supports the premature “end of the world” expectation among Jehovah’s witnesses. By ignoring modern globalization to come into its zenith in world government in time, the GB bypasses the realization that much more must fulfill in prophecy in a final epic period.
The Daniel 2, 8 and 11 prophecy symbols equate in final form as synonymous with the progress of globalization completion (Rev16:13-16) and its end objective of 8th King world government to its complete globally ruling form of the future as parallel with Revelation 13 and 17 prophecies of the same terminal future sovereign development into the globalization-process completion. In the future, those meanings of the world government objective of the globalization completion process (Dan11:42-43) will actually nearly explain themselves as the coming JW “the end of the world” must fail into that above world government final-progression reality instead, and JWs will either remain in the ashes and rubble of the WTBTS, or they will apply the by then no-brainer final fixes. In any event, some ministerial body will make these final adjustments, we will have to wait and see how JWs react to their final fail and WTBTS GB engineered downfall. (Rev10:5-7; Rev11:3)
The Daniel 2 Stall
(Rather than remain stalled at the final national-system element in Daniel 2’s “immense image” in the Anglo-American nation-state bloc and the “feet and toes” as JWs examine them with a microscope ascertaining nothing, the WHOLE Daniel 2 “immense image” is merely also a whole symbol of a complete whole world government synonymous with all the other globalized final symbolic “Kings” of Daniel 8 (King Fierce) and 11 (King North) and Revelation 17 (8th King).)
The question is, how long into the JW Org dissolving desolation (Dan8:13) will it take JWs to figure out “the end” only came for the apostate JW organization and the GB cancelled JW ministry complete with a “the end is here!” “hard-hitting judgment message” to be sallied forth by misled Jehovah’s witnesses in grand 2Thessalonians 2:1-2 manner? How long will it take misled and betrayed Jehovah’s witnesses of the future to realize THE WORLD IS NOT ENDING along that fraudulent GB premature forecast timeline?
The temple judgment inception prophecy of the future in Daniel 8:13-14 and its timing gives us a clue as to timing, but its cryptic in nature. Daniel 8:13-14 can mean 1150 days or 2300 days of total temple judgment desolation to cleansed recovery. Thus, we will have to wait and see what transpires as it occurs in the future upon the apostate JW ministry and criminal organization while beginning the Daniel 8:13-14 timing upon a notable anti-JW Org and JW ministry event or events.
The Daniel 4 Dilemma
Daniel 4, currently being undermined and discredited by the persistent GB fictional “time travel machine” mindset that Jerusalem was destroyed in 607 BCE, rather than its historic downfall under Babylon in 586-587 BCE, actually has an easy fix— just shift the 607 BCE benchmark to the ascension of King Nebuchadnezzar and Babylon in that “gentile” timeframe— which is the very meaning of “gentile times” to be based on gaugable gentile history timelines. When we see JWs’ date+event error in that Jerusalem destruction event 607 BCE timing is not a total chronological botch, we see another date+event applied to the actual “GENTILE time” history in the Babylonian ascension in world power, did occur in the 609 BCE to 605 BCE timeframe. That timeframe is far more believable than JWs current “re-writing of the history books” in their version of the dating of the Jerusalem destruction event (and, subsequently all timings before it), with its delusional, widely ridiculed, 20 year glitch the GB and JWs still try to promote in spite of the massive—MASSIVE— global evidence to the contrary.
Thus, the real “gentile” based 607 BCE benchmark can be adjusted for the 607 BCE valid “gentile times” start point based on the crown-prince-to-coronation phase of King Nebuchadnezzar, which in 20 years approximate time from ineption led to the eventual and real Jerusalem destruction date of 586 BCE. That adjustment still keeps the valid “seven times” for both the time-limit of 70 years “seven times” upon Babylon’s existence which was ended by the Medo-Persians and Cyrus the Great in 539-537 BCE, as foretold, and the 70 years “seven times” of Jerusalem’s “trampling” BUT they do not have to be strictly concurrent progressions as will be shown. And, that “trampling of Jerusalem” is marked in the most significant physical “trampling” of the Judean Kingly Line from God; the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in 586 BCE to its rebuilding in 515-516 BCE (Zech4, 6:9-15)— also a 70 years, “seven times” prophecy gauged span of time which is no “coincidence”.
In that manner, it is the Babylonian ascension of power in 607 BCE which still marks the beginning of the “seven times” 2520 years “appointed times of the nations”, Jerusalem’s “trampling” intrigues in physical form did begin in 586 BCE. But if physical human kings of Judah must be “trampled” as well, it is historically known since King Josiah was felled at the Battle of Megiddo by an Egyptian archer under Pharaoh Necho II in 609 BCE, the divine kings of Judah began to be “trampled” from that time, as well— in a succession of “trampling” of all those last kings of Judah from King Josiah (609 BCE) to King Zedekiah (586 BCE). As proof, the death of King Josiah led to the incarceration of the Judean successor King Jehoahaz under the Egyptians whose reign was but three months as he died in Egyptian captivity, which was at the same time period as Babylon’s final domination drive over Egypt, .
Those four Judean Kings after Josiah, in Jehoahaz (Shallum) Jehoiakim (Eliakim), Jehoiachin (Jeconiah), and Zedekiah (Mattaniah) were all vassal kings of either Egyptian King Necho II (Jehoahaz, Jehoiakim) or of Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar II (Jehoiakim, Jehoiachin, Zedekiah). And, in that historic-transition into the prophecy-marked “Babylon” “gentile” ascendant role over both Egypt and Assyria, and most importantly over Jerusalem in recorded history, Babylon is the main “gentile” symbol and figure in this “gentile times” history and prophecy of that era, still having its spiritual effects today. That means it is only fitting that Babylon’s ascension and history should mark the beginning of the “GENTILE times”; though important, Jerusalem was not “gentile”, their intrigues merely unfold in that “gentile times” marked context.
In spite of the revolts of those last three kings of Judah, Jehoiakim, Jehoiachin, and Zedekiah, all three of those final kings of Judah were “gentile” controlled, which eventually led to the Jerusalem destruction event of 586 BCE in the time of King Zedekiah’s revolt. All three of those kings were placed, sometimes named, attempted to be vassalized, threatened with siege (605 2nd Ref), or besieged (597, 587) and then respectively deposed by “gentile” kings in that Egyptian-to-Babylonian regional power transition of 609-605 BCE to the 597 BCE siege, to the final fall of Jerusalem in 586 BCE for that time in history. In that sense the “trampling” of the divine Judean line of Kings does originate from the 609-605 BCE era, allowing that “seven times” of at least 70 years to also be accounted for from that historic vantage point and “trampling” definition plus a little extra temporal-cushion for good measure.
Just as an interesting side note, Jehoiakim was a compliant vassal-king under Babylon from 608 BCE to 605 BCE according to history, as Daniel stated this about the 605 BCE siege of Jerusalem due to Jehoiakim’s first revolt, apparently:
(Daniel 1:1-7) 1 In the third year of the kingship of Jehoiakim the king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon came to Jerusalem and proceeded to lay siege to it. 2 In time Jehovah gave into his hand Jehoiakim the king of Judah and a part of the utensils of the house of the [true] God, so that he brought them to the land of Shinar to the house of his god; and the utensils he brought to the treasure-house of his god. 3 Then the king said to Ashpenaz his chief court official to bring some of the sons of Israel and of the royal offspring and of the nobles, 4 children in whom there was no defect at all, but good in appearance and having insight into all wisdom and being acquainted with knowledge, and having discernment of what is known, in whom also there was ability to stand in the palace of the king; and to teach them the writing and the tongue of the Chaldeans. 5 Furthermore, to them the king appointed a daily allowance from the delicacies of the king and from his drinking wine, even to nourish them for three years, that at the end of these they might stand before the king. 6 Now there happened to be among them some of the sons of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah. 7 And to them the principal court official went assigning names. So he assigned to Daniel [the name of] Belteshazzar; and to Hananiah, Shadrach; and to Mishael, Meshach; and to Azariah, Abednego.
It was in the minor Egyptian resurgence against Babylon in 601 BCE, after the Egyptian defeat at Carchemish in 605 BCE, that Jehoiakim mustered his final revolt as Babylon was distracted with the Egyptian thrust, which led to the 597 BCE Jerusalem siege in which timeframe he died, to be replaced by Jehoiachin whose reign lasted only 3 months and 10 days which led to the coronation of Zedekiah as the last sitting King of Jerusalem for that era on earth— which resulted in but more Jewish rebellion and then the grand finale Jerusalem siege and destruction of 586 BCE.
The meaning of all these intrigues on the Judean kings since 609 BCE to 586 BCE even before total deposition, is that the “trampling” of the divine Judean line of kings was already in action, it did not require Jerusalem’s physical destruction to begin its “seven times” “seventy year” timing after all, that was all due to over emphasizing the Jerusalem destruction event among early IBSA and Jehovah’s witnesses. Likewise, the “seventy Sabbaths” did not necessarily have to be concurrent with that timeframe of the “trampling” of the Judean kingly line of Jerusalem. As for the Jeremiah 25:11-12 “you will serve the King of Babylon seventy years” sanction of God— that is what happened to the T in Timing, they did not serve Babylonian kings for 87 years of the Neo-Babylonian dynasty (as benchmarked on prophecy marked Nebuchadnezzar’s crown-prince-to-coronation and dynasty lineage inception point) as JWs claim! In that case, there is no “cushion”, the “gentile” Babylonian dynasty from King Nebuchadnezzar inception to Medo-Persian destruction was “seven times” as seventy years. But from the time of 609 BCE to second temple completion of 515-516 BCE, there is plenty of time for all the seventy year requirements to be completed.
And, when we see that the overall timeline (from actually 609 BCE to second temple completion of 515-516 BCE) has enough cushion to accommodate all the seventy year requirements of the judgment prophecies, we see how the current JW debacle can be easily rectified and would have been from the time of Ray Franz, had the so-called “Governing Body” (since 1976) not been an unjust “Korah Class” apostate renegade cabal of treachery and kept this error in place at all costs.
But, in any event, King Nebuchadnezzar and his marked Babylonian dynasty of “seventy years” as “seven times” in that principle as well, is what must mark the 607 BCE to 537 BCE first sovereign time limit of the “seven times” principle to also begin the further encompassing “appointed times of the nations” as 2520 years from 607 BCE to 1914 CE— A couple years of variance is far more workable than the current JW 20 year “time travel” fantasy of ridiculous fiction which the apostate Governing Body of Jehovah’s witnesses keeps in place to undermine the prophecy and people’s faith, while stumbling millions in the process.
The “gentile times” must be based on gentile world histories, Jerusalem’s intrigues merely unfolded within that benchmarked and well recorded gentile historic timeline. By that simple fix, the current JW date+event error of their explanation of the timing and meaning of the Jerusalem physical destruction does not undermine the whole “gentile times” prophecy as it does today.
In 607/606, as crown prince, Nebuchadrezzar commanded an army with his father in the mountains north of Assyria, subsequently leading independent operations after Nabopolassar’s return to Babylon. After a Babylonian reverse at the hands of Egypt in 606/605, he served as commander in chief in his father’s place and by brilliant generalship shattered the Egyptian army at Carchemish and Hamath, thereby securing control of all Syria. After his father’s death on Aug. 16, 605, Nebuchadrezzar returned to Babylon and ascended the throne within three weeks. This rapid consolidation of his accession and the fact that he could return to Syria shortly afterward reflected his strong grip on the empire.
Final Note on the WT Time Machine Fantasy
Jehovah’s witnesses have also been required to reinvent and rewrite all Bible chronology from 607 BCE all the way “back in time” in their own fuzzy theology and rubbery chronology to be able to graft in their fantasy timing of the Jerusalem destruction event. This insertion of approximately 20 years all the way “back in time” from 586 BCE actual events, backwards in time, causes ALL JW dates including and prior to 607 BCE to be at least 20 years “back in time” from the dates of the actual Biblical events including and prior to 607 BCE. That is, starting with the “607 BCE JW Time Shift” “back in time” all dates including and prior to 607 BCE in JW chronology are ALL at variance with the historic record in hundreds of occurrences, even thousands, as well as the notable chronologies of William Albright, Edwin Thiele, Gershon Galil, Kenneth Kitchen and Isaac Newton.
You can check that first link of “notable chronologies” of the Kings of Judah chronology list and compare those dates with the JW fuzzy-dates on the WT Library CD to see how this JW “space time glitch” extends back into their own pre 607 fictional chronology all the way back to the “creation of Adam”. Thus, JWs cannot simply reinvent all dates including and prior to 607 BCE as JWs are now doing. Something is off, WAY OFF— and that something is the foretold illegal Governing Body criminal and rogue leadership. (Dan8:12; Dan11:30b; Dan11:32a; Zech3:1-3; 2Thess2:1-4) The only thing the Governing Body is actually “governing” is the attempted destruction of the Jehovah’s witnesses ministry.
