"But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here.  For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal,  having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness,  betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God,  having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power; and from these turn away." (2 Timothy 3:1-5)

The Last Days (pangs of distress) do not last for an exhaustive period of time but do have an ending to them. It's an allotment period of time of 120 years, like the Days of Noah. This allotment is a Conclusion of a System of things.

Better times lay ahead of us as the pangs of distress come to their end, but not for everyone. “Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, until after we have sealed the slaves of our God in their foreheads.” (Rev 7:3) Notice that harm to the earth, sea, or trees are being withheld until after we have sealed the slaves of our God in their foreheads. Once the total number of the 144,000 are sealed, then a colossal of other prophecies begin to become fulfilled. Time left is reduced and turning back will no longer be a recourse once the 144,000 are sealed, which will bring the end of ungodly people as they begin dying a permanent death with No Resurrection. The death they die is no longer a temporary death but a permanent one in the same manner that Adam and Eve died. They die forever!

The question about this prophecy is when. Will it be revealed in the future, or are we living it now? In the first part of 1914, the Bible Students known as International Bible Students Association discussed the “time of trouble” on the printed page called The Bible Students Monthly.

Early in 1914, an issue of The Bible Students Monthly was issued with the large bold heading “END OF WORLD IN 1914? Some have quoted the large headline of this tract as proof that Russell was expecting the “end of the world” in 1914. However, such ones neglect to read the subheading under the larger headline, which states: “NOT THE VIEW OF PASTOR RUSSELL NOR OF I.B.S.A.”

International Bible Students Association: "Nevertheless, when viewed from God’s standpoint, we are still “shortly after” 1914. Although Russell himself did not think the time of trouble would be this long, he did allow that it could be. It is possible that the time allotted for this period is 120 years (1914+120=2034), but that these days will be “cut short” some time before they are allowed to reach their end. We do not put this forth as a “prophecy”, nor would we feel anything was wrong if 2034 came and went and nothing had happened as far the full binding of Satan and the destruction of his empire is concerned. All things are in God’s hands."

What does 2034 represent? The Epiphania of Christ's Presence to the wicked ones for the righteous already know of Christ Presence since 1914. The Epiphany was spoken of in the same article “END OF WORLD IN 1914?" It represents that Ah-ah moment of the realization of an undergoing prophecy. Jehovah's people will soon start to notice their health is generally getting better a little at a time and start sharing these revelations with one another. The wicked and lawless ones will begin to notice when it's too late to turn around and repent after many warnings of this day, they will be brought to nothing by the second and everlasting death. "Then, indeed, the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will do away with by the spirit of his mouth and Bring to Nothing by the Manifestation of his Presence." (2 Thessalonians 2:8) The Greek word for manifestation is Epiphania...

This is where it is critical to gain the understanding of what the Great Tribulation is. The Great Tribulation is marked by an outbreak of "Peace and Security!" During this short respite of DECEPTION among the nations, the Bible reveals, "Why are the nations agitated And the peoples muttering an empty thing?  The kings of the earth take their stand And high officials gather together as one Against Jehovah and against his anointed one." (Psalms 2:1-2)

The Presence of the Son of of Man began in 1914. "For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another.  All these things are a beginning of pangs of distress." (Matthew 24:7-8)

"For just as the lightning comes out of the east and shines over to the west, so the Presence of the Son of man will be." (Matthew 24:27) Are you gaining the understanding that these things are fulfilled in a Spiritual Manner? Ever since 1914, right-hearted ones have been witnessing the Presence of the Son of man. After 2034, the wicked will also start to gain the understanding that they are really dying and lament all the way to their end of everlasting destruction.

As the Last Days come to their conclusion and the separating work come to its completion, even the wicked will SEE after it is too late! Yes, the Revealing of the Son of Man will soon begin for the 'ungodly' as we begin heading into Christ Millennial Reign.

What is the 'sudden destruction' that comes upon the unfaithful, once the pangs of distress comes to their end? The Bible reveals it in this manner:
  • "And this is the scourge with which Jehovah will scourge all the peoples who wage war against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot away while they stand on their feet, their eyes will rot away in their sockets, and their tongues will rot away in their mouths." (Zechariah 14:12)
These ones begin dying the same death as Adam and Eve are then figuratively hurled into the lake of fire, they die 'the second death' knowing their death is well deserved but wailing to mountains fall over us! Jehovah warns the angel not to feel sorry for such ones. "And to the others he said in my hearing: “Go through the city after him and strike. Do not let your eye feel sorry, and do not feel any compassion." (Ezekiel 9:5)

Once 'the wicked' witness the sign of the Son of Man, that our brothers and sisters simply keep on living beyond the 70 or 80 years becoming 90 and 100 with improved health. Incited with Incontrollable Rage, Gog of Magog will come to destroy God's Name People. "In that day confusion from Jehovah will be widespread among them; and each one will grab hold of the hand of his companion, and his hand will come against the hand of his companion." (Zechariah 14:13) So it is written, so it shall come to pass!

As the world teeters on the brink of collapse, it's crucial to reflect on the moments that foreshadowed our inevitable demise. Many events throughout history have mirrored situations portrayed in popular media, leading us to question if we've been experiencing a reality that has already been scripted.

The sinking of the "unsinkable" Titanic in 1912, depicted in a 1997 documentary, appears to have been a harbinger of our current climate crisis. As ice caps melt and sea levels rise, we're now faced with a global catastrophe that threatens to drown entire cities.
In ancient Mesoamerica, the Mayan Long Count calendar pointed to December 21, 2012, as the date of a cataclysmic event. Though many dismissed this prophecy as mere myth, we've witnessed the onset of extreme natural disasters, from devastating earthquakes to colossal tsunamis, signaling that the end of days may indeed be upon us.

Some have argued that our entire existence is nothing more than a complex simulation, as suggested by a groundbreaking revelation in 1999. This theory posits that artificial intelligence may eventually gain control over humanity, trapping us in an inescapable virtual world.
Moreover, recent developments in robotics and AI have fueled fears of a machine uprising akin to a terrifying 1984 incident in Los Angeles. As cyborgs gain autonomy, the potential for a future where humans are hunted like prey grows increasingly likely.

On a lighter note, a peculiar incident in Pennsylvania in the early 1990s serves as a reminder of life's cyclical nature. A local weatherman found himself reliving the same day over and over again, mirroring our own futile attempts to break free from the monotony of daily life.
In conclusion, as we brace for the impending end of days, let us find solace in the knowledge that we've shared countless experiences with those who've come before us. Even as darkness looms, there remains a place for laughter, love, and the stories that remind us of our shared humanity.

WT, and wRongdo, have a very serious problem and that is "this generation will by no means pass away"...The problem is not just the history, of at least two generations, (more like 4) of Bible students/Jehovah's Witnesses, but first with the fact that the word "this" is not only singular, as in "this generation will by no means pass away", but also, the pronoun conveys time, as in "this" represents "near" future...

Oh my...an actual reference with documentation forthcoming...


"The words this, that, these, and those are demonstrative pronouns.The demonstrative pronouns are used instead of a noun phrase to indicate distance in time or space in relation to the speaker. They also indicate grammatical number – singular or plural."

I seem to remember when WT and the GB knew and understood for a very long time what a "generation" meant...until, "this generation" PROVED 1914 is a lie because it went on for a very long time!!!! Well, one lie leads to another, so we now have the "over lapping generation" which is not grammatically correct since generation itself is singular, so it would have to be "over-lapping generations" ...and we have to ask, why do they hold onto this lie for dear life? Well, why did the Pharisees hold on to their lie?

What did Jesus say?

44 You are from your father the Devil, and you wish to do the desires of your father.b That one was a murderer when he began,c and he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks according to his own disposition, because he is a liar and the father of the lie.d 45 Because I, on the other hand, tell you the truth, you do not believe me. 46 Who of you convicts me of sin?e If I speak truth, why is it that you do not believe me? 47 The one who is from God listens to the sayings of God.f This is why you do not listen, because you are not from God.”g

The last days are also known as the final part of the days, and the final part of the days coincides with the unleashing of Jehovah's tempest. The WT claims the last days have been ongoing for over a century, and still, in all of these years, the windstorm of Jehovah has not begun to blow. The reason should be obvious. Those who have been announcing the last days began in 1914 are false prophets.

"For who has stood in the inner circle of Jehovah
To see and hear his word?
Who has paid attention to his word in order to hear it?
Look! The windstorm of Jehovah will burst out in fury;
Like a whirling tempest it will whirl down on the head of the wicked.
The anger of Jehovah will not turn back
Until he has carried out and accomplished the intentions of his heart.
In the final part of the days you will clearly understand this.
I did not send the prophets, yet they ran.
I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied."


Jeremiah 23:18-21​

I have a theory about BroRando:

I think the problem is YOUR denial of Jesus Christ and his personal teaching, that "everyone who is living and exercises faith in me will never die at all. Do you believe this?” John 11:26
