( became the President years after in 1977 )
Russell Blood Line and Illuminati Connection
Jan 17 1917, less then 3 mths Rutherford took over the control
After Russell's death, a leadership crisis arose surrounding the new president of the Society, Joseph Rutherford, resulting in a movement-wide schism. As many as three-quarters of the approximately 50,000 Bible Students who had been associating in 1917 had left by 1931, resulting in the formation of several groups that retained variations on the name Bible Students. Those who maintained fellowship with the Watch Tower Society adopted the name Jehovah's witnesses in 1931, while those who severed ties with the Society formed their own groups including the Pastoral Bible Institute in 1918, the Layman's Home Missionary Movement in 1919, and the Dawn Bible Students Association in 1929.
CT Russell beliefs and writings were scrapped by JF Rutherford the 2nd President of the WTB+TS.
Interesting that both Russell and Rutherford had roots back to Scotland,
Rutherford and six other Watch Tower executives were imprisoned in 1918 after charges were laid over the publication of The Finished Mystery, a book deemed "seditious" for its anti-war comments.
JFR saw this huge publishing business 1916 with a committed list of 200,000 followers not just readers but religious zealots who he could marshal to protest the Catholic Church and others with placards. Stand on street corners, and go from house to house preaching salvation the the Watchtower.
Rutherford introduced many organizational and doctrinal changes that helped shape the beliefs and practices of Jehovah's Witnesses. He imposed a centralized administrative structure on the worldwide Bible Student movement, which he later called a theocracy, requiring all members of the religion to distribute literature and preach door to door and provide regular reports of their activity.
He also instituted public speaking training programs as part of their weekly worship meetings. He established 1914 as the date of Christ's invisible return, asserted that Christ died on a tree rather than a cross, formulated the current Witness concept of Armageddon as God's war on the wicked, and reinforced the belief that the start of Christ's millennial reign was imminent.
He directed that adherents not observe traditional celebrations such as Christmas and birthdays, salute national flags or sing national anthems. He introduced the name "Jehovah's witnesses" in 1931 and the term "Kingdom Hall" for houses of worship in 1935.
He wrote twenty-one books and was credited by the Society in 1942 with the distribution of almost 400 million books and booklets. The number of adherents increased more than sixfold during Rutherford's 25 years as president.
and there are still more false predictions to go. 1975 and 1994 change in the reference to the "Generation"
Franz claimed to be able to translate from Hebrew To English, but in truth he failed to do so in a court of law in a trial in Scotland,
Life everlasting in freedom of the sons of God by Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania., 1966,Watchtower Bible and Tract Book contains the chronology started with CT Russell thru Rutherford then thru Mr. Organization President Nathan Knorr.
Knorr was into running the business whereas Franz was the Oracle who wrote the book in 1966 Life Everlasting in Freedom Of The Sons of God.
Frederick Franz 5th President preached the end of the 6000 years of mankind's history would come to an end in October 1975 . And the 1st You Tube Video Is The Voice and pictures of Franz preaching about 1975.
It is well documented in this book, now off the minds of JW's, since it proves 1975 was not the over enthusiastic reaction by the worldwise flock, but rather a very specific message driven into Jw's in 1966 by Franz and endorsed by Knorr.
After all this spirit picked 5 false prophets who were interested in profit from selling subscriptions,and books, CT Russell, Rutherford, Knorr and Frederick Franz, And Milton Henschell all false prophets.
“If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true,
that is a message the Lord has not spoken.
That prophet has spoken presumptuously. (Deut. 18:22).
“But the prophet who prophesies peace
will be recognized as one truly sent by the Lord
only if his prediction comes true” (Jer. 28:9).
This has been a great recovery year for my business affairs after going thru the worst recession since the great depression of 1929. Business is doing very well.
The health of the writer is very good, financial investments have all increased on the stock market and so have my real estate holdings and new acquisitions in investment properties.
My circle of friends have grown and we are planning trips to Sarasota Florida leaving boxing day and returning Jan 16th 2011.
We have family and friends who enrich our lives and we look forward to spending time with them over Xmas Holidays.
I wish you all the best health wealth and happiness for this Holiday Season.
