Page 6: His disciples had also asked him about the sign of his presence. They did not then know it, but this referred to a time when he would be installed to reign as King in heaven.

Correction: The disciples were told about the physical return of Jesus Christ to the earth.

2 Peter 1:16 For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty.


Page 8: In this century, Jehovah's Witnesses have carried out a work unique in human history. They have taken the Bible's message about Jehovah God's Kingdom - what it is, how it rules, and what it will accomplish - and have spread that message all over the earth.

Correction: They should be telling people about salvation through only Jesus Christ.

Luke 24:44 Then He said to them, "These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me."


Page 8: Notice that Jesus called this "good news," not bad news. How could that be in these dark times? Because the Bible's central message is not about how bad things will be at the end of this old world. Its central message involves God's Kingdom, and that Kingdom promises something dear to the hearts of every peace-loving human - deliverance.

Correction: Jesus Christ provides deliverance.

1 Thessalonians 1:9-10 For they themselves declare concerning us what manner of entry we had to you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.


Page 11: Deliverance is nearing for those who pay attention to the warning signals and who take appropriate action. First John 2:17 shows what must be done: "The world (Satan's system of things) is passing away and so is its desire, but he that does the will of God remains forever."

Note: Appropriate action would be to receive Jesus Christ into your life.

1 John 5:11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. (Compare John 1:12)


Page 11-12: For God's servants to be delivered, Satan and his entire worldwide system of things need to be removed. This requires a source of deliverance far more powerful than humans. That source is Jehovah God, the Supreme Sovereign, the almighty Creator of the awesome universe. He is the principal Deliverer: "I - I am Jehovah, and besides me there is no savior." - Isaiah 43:11; Proverbs 18:10.

Note: The New Testament declares Jesus Christ to be the Savior.

Luke 2:11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.


Page 12: In Jehovah there is the ultimate degree of power, wisdom, justice, and love. (Psalm 147:5; Proverbs 2:6; Isaiah 61:8; 1 John 4:8) So when he executes his judgments, we can be certain that his actions will be righteous.

Note: The New Testament declares Jesus Christ to be the Judge.

2 Timothy 4:1-2 I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: preach the word!

Page 14: In 1914 this world entered its "last days." (2 Timothy 3:1-5, 13)

Note: 1914 is based on the bogus date of 607 BCE for the destruction of Jerusalem.


Page 15: Having destroyed false religion, the political elements turn on Jehovah's servants. Satan, "Gog of the land of Magog" in prophecy, says: "I shall come in upon those having no disturbance, dwelling in security." Thinking that they are easy prey, he attacks them with "a numerous military force..., like clouds to cover the land." (Ezekiel 38:2, 10-16)

Correction: This prophecy is for the Jewish people.

Ezekiel 38:18 "And it will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel," says the Lord GOD, "that My fury will show in My face."


Page 15: "Then the sign of the Son of man (Christ) will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will beat themselves in lamentation, and they will see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory." (Matthew 24:29, 30)

Note: Everyone will see the return of Jesus Christ to the earth.


Page 15: All vestiges of Satan's system are destroyed. The entire human society of God-ignoring people is annihilated. That is the Armageddon climax of the "great tribulation."

Correction: Not everyone will be destroyed who comes against God's people.

Zechariah 14:16 And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.


Page 15-16: Delivered through the "great tribulation" will be the millions of worshipers of Jehovah earth wide. These make up the "great crowd" who have come "out of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues."

Correction: True Christians are not exempted from death for their testimony of Jesus.

Matthew 24:9 "Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake."


Page 16: Why are they delivered in such an awe-inspiring way? Because they render Jehovah "sacred service day and night." So they survive this world's end and are ushered into a righteous new world. (Revelation 7:9-15)

Correction: True Christians are not exempted from death for their testimony of Jesus.

Revelation 6:11 Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed.


Page 16: Thus, they witness the fulfillment of Jehovah's promise: "Hope in Jehovah and keep his way, and he will exalt you to take possession of the earth. When the wicked ones are cut off, you will see it." - Psalm 37:34.

Note: Jesus Christ is our hope in the New Testament.

1 Timothy 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, by the commandment of God our Savior and the Lord Jesus Christ, our hope,


Page 18: Jehovah's patience in these last days is accomplishing something else. He is allowing time to gather and educate the great crowd, already numbering more than five million. Under Jehovah's direction, they have been formed into a forward-moving organization.

Correction: God is showing mercy so that people may repent and have everlasting life.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

1 Timothy 1:16 However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life.


Page 21: My mother wanted me to be baptized as a Baptist, but I did not want to do that because I could not believe that a loving God would burn people forever in hell.

Correction: Followers of the devil will be tormented forever in fire.

Revelation 20:10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.


Page 21: How thrilled I was that evening to learn from the Bible that there is no burning hell and to see in my own Romanian Bible God's name, Jehovah!

Correction: Followers of the devil will be tormented forever in fire.

Revelation 19:20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshipped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.


Page 25: I observed very qualified brothers who did not partake, and I reasoned: 'Why would Jehovah grant me the privilege of being a joint heir with his Son in heaven when others are such fluent speakers?' But when I did not partake, I felt very disturbed. It was as if I were rejecting something. After much study and prayerful supplication, I began partaking again. My peace and joy returned, and they have never left me.

Note: Whoever is led by the Spirit of God is a joint heir with Jesus Christ.

Romans 8:14-17 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father." The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs; heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.


Page 26: On every appropriate occasion, Jehovah's Witnesses sow "seed" by preaching the good news of God's Kingdom. In over 230 lands and island groups, they continue "without letup teaching and declaring the good news about the Christ, Jesus." (Acts 5:42)

Note: God's Kingdom is not paradise earth!

John 14:6-7 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him."
