              ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF DIVINE DIRECTION
                          compiled by
                THE CHRISTIAN RESEARCH INSTITUTE

1897

“Our Lord, the appointed King, is now present, since October 1874,” Studies In
The Scriptures, Vol. 4, p. 621

1899

“…the ‘battle of the great day of God Almighty’ (Revelation 16:14), which
will end in A.D. 1914 with the complete overthrow of earth’s present
rulership, is already commenced.” The Time Is At Hand, p. 101 (1908 edition)

1916

“The Bible chronology herein presented show that the six great 1000 year days
beginning with Adam are ended, and that the great 7th Day, the 1000 years of
Christ’s Reign, began in 1873.” The Time Is At Hand, p. ii, (forward)

1918

“Therefore we may confidently expect that 1925 will mark the return of
Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the faithful prophets of old, particularly those
named by the Apostle in Hebrews 11, to the condition of human perfection.”
Millions Now Living Will Never Die, p. 89

1922

“The date 1925 is even more distinctly indicated by the Scriptures than 1914.”
The Watchtower 9/1/22, p. 262

1923

“Our thought is, that 1925 is definitely settled by the Scriptures.  As to
Noah, the Christian now has much more upon which to base his faith than Noah
had upon which to base his faith in a coming deluge.” The Watchtower 4/1/23,
p. 106

1925

“The year 1925 is here.  With great expectation Christians have looked forward
to this year.  Many have confidently expected that all members of the body of
Christ will be changed to heavenly glory during this year.  This may be
accomplished.  It may not be.  In his own due time God will accomplish his
purposes concerning his people.  Christians should not be so deeply concerned
about what may transpire this year.” The Watchtower 1/1/25, p. 3

September 1925

“It is to be expected that Satan will try to inject into the minds of the
consecrated, the thought that 1925 should see an end to the work.” The
Watchtower, p. 262

1926

“Some anticipated that the work would end in 1925, but the Lord did not state
so.  The difficulty was that the friends inflated their imaginations beyond
reason; and that when their imaginations burst asunder, they were inclined to
throw away everything.” The Watchtower, p. 232

1931

“There was a measure of disappointment on the part of Jehovah’s faithful ones
on earth concerning the years 1914, 1918, and 1925, which disappointment lasted
for a time…and they also learned to quit fixing dates.” Vindication, p. 338

1941

“Receiving the gift, the marching children clasped it to them, not a toy or
plaything for idle pleasure, but the Lord’s provided instrument for most
effective work in the remaining months before Armageddon.” The Watchtower
9/15/41, p. 288

1968

“True, there have been those in times past who predicted an ‘end to the
world’, even announcing a specific date.  Yet nothing happened.  The ‘end’ did
not come.  They were guilty of false prophesying.  Why?  What was
missing?…Missing from such people were God’s truths and the evidence that he
was using and guiding them.” Awake 10/8/68  see Luke 21:8

1968

“Why are you looking forward to 1975?” The Watchtower 8/15/68, p. 494

1972 – IDENTIFYING THE “PROPHET”

“So, does Jehovah have a prophet to help them, to warn them of dangers and to
declare things to come?  These questions can be answered in the affirmative.
Who is this prophet?…This ‘prophet’ was not one man, but was a body of men
and women.  It was the small group of footstep followers of Jesus Christ,
known at that time as International Bible Students.  Today they are known as
Jehovah’s Christian witnesses…Of course, it is easy to say that this group
acts as a ‘prophet’ of God.  It is another thing to prove it.” The Watchtower
4/1/72  see Deuteronomy 18:21)

This graph shows that there is one God. Jesus in Revelation 1:17 is the First
and Last. YAHWEH in Isaiah 41:4 is the First and Last. Hence one God.

The references on the right are New Testament references of Jesus. The
references on the left, opposite the New Testament references are Old
Testament references of YAHWEH.
