TRANSITIONING TO THE KINGDOM OF THE HEAVENS
The primary purpose of this website is to assist Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society to transition from an earth-dominated two-hope organization to a heaven-seeking spirit led brotherhood.
We know that for most of its existence, the Society has taught that the vast majority of mankind has the hope of living forever on earth, and that only a small minority, 144,000 counting from 33 C.E. to date, have the hope of going to heaven. This unique doctrine was arrived at as the Society attempted to understand the book of Revelation. The doctrine has been taught for less than 80 years. Thus, in the overall scheme of history, it is in its infancy.
Likewise, the Society itself is in its infancy, compared with Christianity as a whole, in that it has only been in existence about 100 years. As with all babes, there will be growing pains, missteps, and a need for readjustment. Over the 100 years of its history, the Society has suffered many such adjustments, including its frequent miscalculation of end-time related dates – a matter that should properly be left to the Father.
The time has come for the doctrine of the earthly hope to be re-examined in light of what Jesus and the early Christians actually taught, and abandoned as non-scriptural. The articles posted in this series will provide suggestions on how to make the transition to a spirit-led brotherhood. It is our hope that Jehovah’s Witnesses and their leadership, the Governing Body, take a serious look at these articles and align themselves more closely to the scriptures.
