When Christ said, “For this reason, you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour you do not expect,” he was speaking to his anointed church, those he takes to heaven that return to rule the world. Therefore, no Jehovah’s Witness that is part of their Governing Body, or that claims to be anointed, believing Stephen Lett’s statement that, “We are living in the last of the last days, and soon the last day of the last days will be here,” could possibly be part of that church. Especially if Christ does return soon. Why? Because Christ told his true church they will not be expecting his return when that happens. Who will not be expecting it? Christ’s true church will not upon his return.
Christ didn’t just say no one knows that day or hour. He said his true church would not expect it when it happens. As long as Watchtower has existed it has taught that time is right upon all its followers. So could any of those believing followers of Watchtower really be his church? Could any of Watchtower’s believing followers who are alive when Christ does return really be anointed? If so, why did Christ say, “For this reason, you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour you do not expect” ? Matthew 24:44
When I analyze the Bible I merely look at words that are actually written, giving weight to nothing else. What do the words say? In the same way I read other writings I read the Bible. If you are intelligent enough to understand language, oral and written, then you are capable of understanding the Bible. Unless God does not allow you to.
At best, in support of Watchtower’s statements, and the eventuality of its members, according to Christ’s words possibly some Jehovah’s Witnesses who die before Christ returns might be anointed, taken to heaven in Christ’s church. But the chance of any believers of Watchtower that are alive when Christ returns being part of that church is infinitesimally small. Because Christ said his chosen church will not be expecting his return when it happens.
See Luke 21:8. So why do you teach his return is imminent? And why do you follow those who do, you Jehovah’s Witnesses? Christ specifically told his church not to follow those who teach the end is imminent.
