A Message from God
Ancient Bible prophecies are being fulfilled. Our Heavenly Father, Jehovah, has sent forth his messenger of the covenant prophesied in the book of Malachi. The messenger urges all people to become reconciled to God. As a loving Father, Jehovah welcomes with open arms every person who loves him and is earnestly seeking him. 2 John, verse 3, "There will be with us undeserved kindness, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ the Son of the Father, with truth and love." (Isaiah 49:6) (Malachi 3:1 and Malachi 4:5,6) (Acts 17:24-31) (2 Corinthians 5:16-20)
Christ Rules Over A New World
A righteous new world is being established here on earth through God’s Son, and our King, Christ Jesus. When the fulfillment of a prophecy occurs, it does not have to be made physically apparent to us here on earth. Many prophecies are fulfilled on a spiritual level, and not visible to the naked eye. What Jehovah causes to actually occur with a fulfillment, usually does not correlate with our sometimes long-standing and preconceived expectations.
That being the case, our own spirituality needs to be sharply honed, in order to grasp the facts and truths until everything is made manifest. The only help for this is a close relationship with Almighty God, Jehovah, that is based on truth. Truth is not usually very hard to understand, but sometimes it can be very hard for us to accept. (Matthew 6:10) (Romans 15:11-13) (Ephesians 3:14-21) (2 Peter Chapter 3, all verses) (Revelation 11:15-18)
Babylon the Great is Scripturally Identified
Our actions toward others and our relationship with God are being closely examined. This is the "great and fear-inspiring day of Jehovah." As prophesied, this is his day of accounting with all people. It is the day of righteous retribution, proper punishment brought by Almighty God upon ungodly persons, those doing willful harm to others and to the earth.
Jehovah’s Witnesses bear special accountability to God because they call themselves by his holy name. In God’s judgment, those at the head of this international organization have been measured against the highest standards (scriptural standards) for their teaching and example to others, and are found to be lacking. (James 3:1) Many of these individuals have left Jehovah’s loving and compassionate ways. It is for personal gain, prominence and its corrupting influence of power and control over others, that they have manipulated God’s holy scriptures to subdue loyal members. In doing this, they have failed their scriptural commission to shepherd God’s people with tenderness, as Jesus would. (Jeremiah 23:1-4) (Acts 20:29,30) (Revelation 17:5,6)
They were also under scriptural command to prove themselves faithful to God to the end of the last days. They were to remain steadfast and true to Jehovah in all of their conduct, and look to him alone for provision and protection. Instead, they have forsaken God by seeking material wealth, as well as security through political fortification from the nations. In the eyes of God they have committed spiritual prostitution. For this, Almighty God Jehovah denounces them. They are Babylon the Great. (Isaiah 30:1-16) (Malachi 4:5,6) (Matthew 24:45-51) (Revelation Chapter 18) (Revelation 19:1,2)
Revelation 18:4, "Get out of her, my people, if you do not want to share with her in her sins, and if you do not want to receive part of her plagues. For her sins have massed together clear up to heaven, and God has called her acts of injustice to mind." (Quoted from the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures, published by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society.)
