Charles Russell was the founder of the Jehovah's Witnesses. This thread will be the test of a false prophet. Kindly pay attention to number 9, it's very interesting. Charles Russell and JWs prophesies: 1. He said "Jehovah the God of the true prophets will put all fake prophets to shame either by not fulfilling the false prediction of such self assuming prophets, or by having his own prophesies fulfilled in a way opposite to that predicted by the false prophets. False prophets will try to hide their reason for feeling shame by denying who they really are.” The title of this article is “Paradise restored to mankind by theocracy.” It’s in their publication 1972’ page 353-354. 2. The millennium will begin at 1872. “In this chapter we present the Bible evidence which indicate that 6000 years from the creation of Adam were complete with A.D. 1872, and hence that since 1872 A.D., we chronologically entered upon the 7 thousandth or the millennium the fore part of which the day of the Lord, the day of trouble is to witness the breaking into pieces of the kingdoms of this world and establishment of the kingdom of God under the whole Heavens.” Found in their book “Thy kingdom come” 1905; page 127. 3. Christ second coming will occur in 1874. “The second coming of the Lord therefore began in 1874 and that date and the year 1914-1918 are specially marked dates with reference to His coming.” This is found in their book “Creation” 1927; page 310. 4. The kingdom of God established in 1914. “In view of this string bible evidence concerning the times of the Gentiles, we consider it an established truth, that the final end of the kingdoms of this world, and the full establishment of the kingdom of God will be accomplished at the end of A.D. 1914.” This is found in their studies of the scripture vol 2, title is “The time is at hand.” The 1889 and 1909 edition; page 99. 5. This is same with point 4 above. The only difference is that they changed the date from 1914 to 1915. Studies of the scriptures vol 2 “The time is at hand.” Reprint of the 1915 edition, page 99. 6. Churches destroyed, end of the times of the Gentiles 1918. “However suddenly there came an end to World War One. It did not lead on as bible students expected into world revolution and anarchy or the battle of Armageddon, and the sincere worshipers of Jehovah who were in the new covenant with Him through His mediator Jesus Christ found themselves still in the flesh on the Earth.” They were expecting Him to come at that time. Title “Man’s salvation out of world distress at hand” 1975; page 98. 7.“And the mountains were not found, even the republics will disappear in the fall of 1920, and the mountains were not found, every kingdom of earth will pass away, be swallowed up in anarchy.” This is found in studies of the scriptures vol 7 “The finished mystery” 1917 edition; page 258. 9.“At San Diego California, there is a small piece of land on which in the year 1929 there was built a house which is called and known as BETH SARIM. The Hebrew word BETH SARIM means house of the princes, and the purpose of acquiring that property and building the house was that there might be some tangible, that there are those on earth today who fully believed that the faithful men of old will soon be resurrected by the Lord, and be back on earth, and take charge of the visible affairs of earth. The occupation of the house by the princes was to be a confirmation of the faith and hope that induce the building BETH SARIM.” Found in their magazine titled “salvation” 1939, page 311 and 312. Maybe the JWs should go to San Diego and look at the house and see for themselves that their organization is wrong, and Charles Russell is a false prophet, and so is his predecessors. The building is still there. 10. They have preached that in an early time God will overthrow Christendom. Many had emphasized the year 1925 as the date, and then when that date did not materialized, the date was moved up to 1932. Again 1932 came, and Christendom was not destroyed. This is found in their magazine Feb 15, 1938; page 54. 11. The millennium to began at 1975. “According to the trustworthy bible chronology, 6000 years from man’s creation will end in 1975, and the seventh period of a thousand years of human history will begin in the fall of 1975 common era." title - “life everlasting in freedom of the sons of God.” 1966 page 29.
