This is probably how you would look like if you were born around 1914

I thought we had a candidate. The 1914 doctrine is TRUE!!!!! But the WBTS said way back that you had to be old enough to know what was going on. He was 1 year old in 14 so...no.

But thank goodness we have the overlapping generations. That totally makes sense. /s

This has to be one of the most embarrassing Watchtower covers of false prophecies ever published. In fact I remember seeing an exJW YouTube video of people walking around at a JW Convention with a large blown up version of this very same WT cover on a stick.
Which I believe is why they had to come up with the nonsense of a flip flopping , overlapping - two generations being one.
So they wouldn't look like False prophets again for the Seventh or eighth time, ever since the very first Watchtower rolled off their press , proclaiming that Christ had returned invisibly in 1878. 🤯 Discreet ? I don't think so.
 
A few years ago we had the World oldest woman she ws 113 years bed ridden but with beautiful skin. Not all old people people get wrinkly skin. The family milked it. Her room was re-decorated, the main stream media was coming and going. She just had a hip operation just to show her heart was so healthy. They wanted to have her walking in 6 months. As carers we knew it was not going to happen - she was slumped to one side, she was getting very tired, didn't want to eat as much. She died within 6 months. The family accused of neglect. Just to say you don't usually going into a Nursing home unless you have a long term illness that has long term clinical needs. Or you are shortly going to die. Saying that we've looked after them so well they have lasted at least 5 years longer. We looked after a French Catholic lady who had at least 4 last rights. Hate to sound matter of fact, but sometimes death is a relief because of the pain and isolation. Not all the elderly have families. They die alone. My job gives me alot of common sense, I have empathy but unfortunately families can have un realistic expectations.

My Mom is dying. My younger brother has been taking care of her, (that's a story in and of itself), but it has become apparent that he has unreal expectations and since he lives with her he has "power of attorney", he makes all her medical decisions and other wise. And although I believe he has kept her alive, at what cost? I haven't seen her yet, I live several states away, but from what he tells me all she's doing now is sleeping. Can't hardly get out of bed, if at all. Not to be hard on my brother he's been incredible given his own limitations, he's handicapped also. But I have been thinking now, that keeping her alive is not doing her or anyone else any favors. (We are trying to get hospice care setup now.)


But it sure does suck. Just yesterday I was thinking how I wasn't supposed to get out of High School the end was coming, and I not only got out of High School it was 35 years ago. She's almost 90 BTW. It's been a rough few weeks, and it's one of the reason I haven't been posting as much. But I definitely get comfort from this page, so there's that!

Sorry, brother. May Jah be with you and your family. Our suffering in this world sucks, but it's temporary. One day we will not longer be divided over the silliness and strife of this broken world. One day we will all be on the same page.

Thanks, I know you just went through this recently. It's sad because when my Mom dies my kids won't have any living Grand Parents. We will be taking them to see her soon.

So sorry to hear about your mom. Moms are particularly hard to lose. You and your family will be in my prayers.
And I know exactly what you mean about you weren't supposed to graduate highschool. If ida known I was gonna live this long in this system, oh the things I woulda done different. Maybe 🤔.
Keep up the faith and the hope... Perhaps we won't have to wait much longer for "death to be no more".

Sorry Nomex to hear about your mum. I'm so looking forward to meeting all my family members that have died. I'm excited to meet up with everyone from here in the new system.

I’m so sorry to hear about your mom Nomex. It’s heartbreaking to lose a loved one. We’ve talked about this not too long ago. You have strong faith and Jehovah will help you through it. My mom died in February, she was in hospice. And I truly believe she wouldn’t let go until I came to see her, because less than two days later she died. The “sting” of death is real. But it’s a wonderful thing that Jehovah gives us a hope in seeing our loved ones again. I don’t think it will be too long. You and your family are in my prayers.

Yep. It's coming up on a year since mine passed away. Not something you ever get over, no matter how much time passes. But like Nomex said, this forum brings a lot of comfort. We may not have the entire puzzle in perspective yet, but with the way this world is going the pieces are definitely falling into place. They release violent sex offenders and murderers, yet a couple teenagers are looking at a 10 year prison sentence for leaving marks on a road painted pride flag. It's enough to depress anyone. Nevertheless, while the world loses its collective mind, my faith in Jah only grows.

You are so right @Jahrule , it's not something you get over. My mom has been gone 10 years next month and I miss her everyday.
And wow, that video really shows the absurdity of the world we are living in. Sad really but that guy is pretty funny the way he talks about it. The horses freaked out by the pride flag made me laugh.😂 I enjoyed that. Thanks for posting it.

I know, right? At least we still have our sense of humor.
 
A bit of context prehaps. "...this generation will by no means pass away UNTIL theses things occur"

Example: Mary you will by no means get any ice-cream "until" you eat your broccoli.

What type/class of "Generation" is spoken of in the verse?

Is it made up of anointed or the wicked? The verse does not appear to cover the other sheep.

Just some ideas.

A veces abro el foro para ver un destello de la luz que nos espera. Te comprendo bien, por lo de el declive de mamá. Por aquí se van también haciendo viejitos. Y entre 5 hermanos hay diversidad de opiniones. No deberíamos de estar viviendo esto! Me dijo una de mis hermanas, fuera de si, al ver que la generación pasó. No nos han preparado para la muerte por vejez de nuestros padres, y se expresa con rabia, como desencajada. Y tiene razón en lo de que les dijeron que Armagedón estaba a la vuelta de la esquina y ya pasaron varían manzanas. Aproveché este invierno para hablar más en profundidad sobre lo que todos aquí sabemos. Me bloquearon todos el teléfono. Y eso que algunos no son testigos, pero, el enemigo es fuerte y no quiere que esté cerca de los que dudan para que no hable. Hace tiempo que ya no veo al hombre como tal, sino como una herramienta. Y el que domina está ansioso por silenciar nos a todos aquí, de maneras muy diferentes. Así que te mando ánimos! Mucha fuerza pronto deberemos resistir sucesos inimaginables por mucho que hablemos de ellos. Pero...que bien que todo esto sea pasajero, verdad? Y que todo el sufrimiento que nos ha unido aquí, un día, se transformen en sonidos de alabanzas a nuestro Dios. Te abrazo ❤️

Thanks so much Anna. You are so right, WT did not prepare us for the deaths of our parents and other loved ones with their "this generation" or 1914 propaganda! It's one of the things that really upsets me about WT.

Pero a la vez de eso se trata el buscar la verdad como a tesoros escondidos. No nos quedamos con el fraude, verdad? Entendimos que si aquello era falso debía de haber una vedad. Y aunque no podemos decir que andamos en ella si sabemos olfatear su rastro. Lo demás debemos de dejárselo a Jehová confiar en El y en su promesa para que tire de nosotros con fuerza cuando llegue el momento. Somos su creación y sabemos que nos ama mucho, quién sino daría a su hijo para salvarnos? Somos la generación que verá el momento en que todos, tanto arriba como aquí abajo, ocupen su correspondiente posición. Y cuantos en el pasado se perdieron esto y aún así tuvieron fe..

Translation: Sometimes I open the forum to see a flash of light that awaits us. I understand you well, because of mom's decline. They are also getting old people around here. And among 5 brothers there is a diversity of opinions. We shouldn't be living this! One of my sisters told me, out of her mind, when she saw that the generation passed. They have not prepared us for the death of our parents by old age, and it is expressed with anger, as if disjointed. And he is right in what they were told that Armageddon was just around the corner and they have already passed varying blocks. I took advantage of this winter to talk more in depth about what we all know here. They all blocked my phone. And that some are not witnesses, but, the enemy is strong and does not want him to be close to those who doubt so that he does not speak. It's been a long time since I saw man as such, but as a tool. And the one who dominates is eager to silence us all here, in very different ways. So I send you encouragement! A lot of strength soon we will have to resist unimaginable events no matter how much we talk about them. But... it's good that all this is temporary, right? And that all the suffering that has united us here, one day, be transformed into sounds of praise to our God. I hug you

Translation: But at the same time that's what it's about looking for the truth like hidden treasures. We don't stay with the fraud, do we? We understood that if that was false there must be a truth. And although we can't say that we walk in it if we know how to smell its trail. The rest we must leave it to Jehovah to trust Him and his promise so that he will pull us hard when the time comes. We are his creation and we know that he loves us very much, who else would give his son to save us? We are the generation that will see the moment when everyone, both above and below, occupies their corresponding position. And how many in the past missed this and still had faith..

I haven't seen any references to this "overlapping generation" nonsense in the WT for a long time. It's gone kind of quiet since the "ex-splane-ation" was presented with all the so called "do the math evidence" that Splane could muster. Maybe I'm wrong but the last reference I can find is way back in the 2010 WT April 15 issue. I wonder if there have been some efforts to sweep this embarrassing so called truth under the proverbial rug. Perhaps some "noo lite" will be presented to change the teaching once again. It's happened before so I wouldn't be surprised.
