Are there anointed prophets today?

Question: No one can understand the biblical propherties except the officially anointed prophets. If you are not anointed, how can your understanding be correct?

Answer: the Bible does not support this view. Today the Bible prophecies can be understood not only by “officially anointed prophets”. There are many biblical texts that confirm this, and I will only give the most obvious ones.

When the angel finished giving the last prophecy to Daniel, he said the following:

“Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.”

“Go your way, Daniel, for these words are concealed and sealed up until the end time. Many will be purged, purified and refined, but the wicked will act wickedly; and none of the wicked will understand, but those who have insight will understand.” (Daniel 12:3, 4, 9, 10, NAS)

What is clear from these texts is that anointing is not necessary to understand the prophecies. For a correct understanding, only the Read More

“New world” or… Is there a “true religion”?

“The language of truth is simple”
Lucius Annaeus Sĕnĕca

Do you not know that a little leaven ferments the whole lump? – the Apostle Paul asked his addressees (2 Corinthians 5:6, NWT, © 1961,1981,1984 WTBTS).

Similarly, if unscriptural terms seem the most innocuous, they may indicate a grand apostasy.

When they speak of “pure worship” and “pure language of truth,” the preachers of the Jehovah’s Witnesses organization do not think about the origin of the terms used in their communication and in their service. Many of their terms only obscure the true message of the Kingdom — especially for the Jehovah’s witnesses themselves.

New world“, “spiritual Paradise“, “spiritual ark of salvation“, “God’s organization“, “true religion“, and so on. All such terms are part of the “spiritual food” that is given to Jehovah’s Witnesses by the elders of their organization, some of which call themselves a “faithful and discreet slave” of Jesus Christ. Thoughtlessly repeating their words, Jehovah’s Witnesses may one day say to Christ something similar to Adam’s words: “The faithful and discreet slave whom you gave, he gave us this spiritual food and so we ate.” (compare Genesis 3:12).

This is not surprising, because all such terms are embedded in the mind of every newly converted person at the beginning of their Christian life. Then a person can use such terminology all their life, without thinking that all these terms are unbiblical, at least.

The list goes on and on — religious leaders always do better than anyone else in matters of “swelling expressions” (compare 2 Peter 2:18, NWT). But, with a cursory look, you can see that there is one thing that unites all the terms listed above. They are all intended to indicate something related to material entities, something visible, or something that can be explicitly imagined. It is not surprising that each of these concepts is supported by an abundance of colorful images in the publications of the Watchtower society.

The “New World”?

Apostle Paul wrote that “we are walking by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7, NWT). It is obvious that true faith is not based on visible material things or visible organization that can be imagined or seen. No, true faith is the fruit of a spirit focused on the heavenly Father and His purpose.

Therefore, it is not surprising that the terminology used by Jehovah’s witnesses is only an insidious fake of biblical concepts. Thus, using the term “new world” in their conversations along with the Term “Kingdom of Christ”, they teach that the Kingdom of Christ already began in 1914. But it is obviously insidious trick: if the Kingdom of Christ has already come, is it possible that it must come again? Of course not. Therefore, it is much more logical to wait for a “new world”, isn’t it? Of course, they may object Read More

Matthew 24:14. And this good news will be preached to all nations… By whom and when?

And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:14, NWT, © 1961,1981,1984 WTBTS).

The fulfillment of this prophecy has never happened just for the reason that it was this preaching that Jesus called one of the signs of the “time of the end” (“the conclusion of the system of things”, NWT). You may ask: How so? By whom, how and when should it be fulfilled?

This is truly amazing, and especially for Jehovah’s Witnesses, who, it would seem, have embraced almost the entire world with their preaching. Calling their preaching a “miracle,” they are truly confident that they have fulfilled this prophecy. But the problem is that, unlike Jesus and His disciples, who preached the approach of God’s Kingdom, members of the Watchtower organization preach “The Kingdom already came in 1914”. I.e. Jesus “invisibly reigned on the heavenly throne”. This confidence is based on their misunderstanding of the term “seven times of the Gentiles“, which, according to their “calculations,” lasted 2520 years and ended in 1914. But there is no biblical basis for this, because the real “times of the Gentiles” are the “time of the end” predicted by Christ. This is a very short period that will only last 42 prophetic months. And which, accordingly, has never come before.

Thus, the preaching of Jehovah’s Witnesses is not the fulfillment of this prophecy. Their preaching is simply a fiction, a “false miracle,” an instrument of a “man of lawlessness” designed to deceive believers and potential participants in Christ’s congregation.

This site has already provided countless biblical proofs that the preaching foretold by Christ in Matthew 24:14 is a sign of the “time of the end.” And this preaching will be delivered by the “holy ones of the Most High.” In the 11th chapter of Revelation, they are symbolized as Read More

What is the coming “abomination of desolation”?

Dear friends,

Unfortunately, some readers still cannot understand what the future “abomination of desolation” really is. But it is important. Because after it’s appearance you will need to leave the meetings and other places of your former worship immediately and not return to them again. In fact, in the last article, which was dedicated to the reasons and urgency of fleeing from the coming “abomination of desolation”, the definition of this “abomination” was not given directly. Although it was visible to the attentive reader — in context.

However, all Christians are different, and some need simpler explanations. Therefore, I sincerely apologize and fill in this gap. I.e. I give a simpler wording for understanding.

What is the “abomination of desolation”?

So, when we talk about the “abomination of desolation”, it is most important that this is not just an abomination, but “abomination of DESOLATION“.

And the key word here is “DESOLATION”.

Yes, the most important thing…

…this is not just “desolation”, but desolation in the spiritual Temple. I.e. it is the stopping of public sacrifices to God. This lack of a “sacrifice of praise” is an abomination to God. And confirmation of this fact can be read from the prophet Daniel: Read More
