When did gods kingdom start ruling ?
Jesus became king in 1914, shortly afterward he threw satan and his demons down to the earth,
revelation 12;7-10 12.
since then,mankinds troubles have severley increased.
wars, earthquakes, famine,epidemics, and lawlessness are a part of a sign that the present system of things is in its last days .
2 TIMOTHY 3;1-5
All who want to benefit from GODS KINGDOM should learn how to become followers of the king JESUS
READ LUKE 21;7, 10,11,31,4, 35.
for details of how bible prophecy points to the year 1914 see pages 215- 218 of the book WHAT DOES THE BIBLE REALLY TEACH published by JEHOVAHS WITNESSES

Daniel 4:20-22 says, "The tree ... is you, O king." The tree that was cut down represented King Nebuchadnezzar who lost his rulership for a period of time and so learned that there was a ruler greater than himself. Should we assume the dream means anything more that what the prophet Daniel said?

Who is God's choice for king? Who proved to be this "lowliest one of mankind"?
9 "Be very joyful, O daughter of Zion. Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem. Look! Your king himself comes to you. He is righteous, yes, saved; humble, and riding upon an ass, even upon a full-grown animal the son of a she-ass.
YES since 1914 Jesus is reigning amidst his enemies , but not to worry, he will conquer and come off victorious, NOW is the time to KISS THE SON PSALM 2;12 ,
Its only his enemies who dont want to welcome him as reigning king .
NOW is the day of salvation ,
do not put your trust in nobles nor in the son of earthling man to whom no salvation belongs psalm 146;3

May, you put your trust in the men of the Governing Body.
Why would someone take both sides?
Why would an organization be saying "come in and be saved" when Jesus said whomever would save their soul will lose it? (Matthew 16:25)
I was looking at the daily paper the other day, And there was a pic of the queen of England, and Obama and the headline said
TOGETHER WE WILL SAVE THE WORLD
i dont think so
psalm 146;3 Do not put YOUR trust in nobles,
Nor in the son of earthling man, to whom no salvation belongs.
So in your opinion May, the men of the GB are not noble? Or are they not sons of men (in other words not human?). Maybe you should let them know what you think of them.
But what worried me most was when those professing being from Jesus of the governing body died, the "light" from them would go with them, then what you would be left with is paper and lots of tradition. What I imagined was You trying to force that stuff into Moses. That is what you want to do. Maybe not you, May, but others of your group just can't wait to tell all them holy ones that You know better. Don't deny it!
those who want to benefit from GODS KINGDOM are more than willing to put their trust in it .
and they are more than willing to help make it known ,matthew 24;14
and they are more than willing to help christs brothers get the work done ADVERTISE ADVERTISE ADVERTISE
the kingdom is NOW well established ,DANIEL 2;44and JESUS is right behind those who are making it known .GO GO GO MATTHEW 28;19-20
Also, in all the nations the good news has to be preached first. MARK 13;10
ITS ALL HAPPENING IN THESE THE LAST DAYS and its for a witness ,or in other words to put people on notice about it .
its all happening
Yes, thank you. There was not enough evidence THEN. NOW there is evidence. You are living in the PAST.
Revelation2:20,21 "Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel which calleth herself a prophetess to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication and to eat things sacrificed unto idols And I gave her space to repent of her fornication and she repented not"
The Governing Body does not teach the people how to interpret things into spiritual meanings.
That is why you are yet "fleshly" because you do not know what it means.
Do you know what spiritual fornication is?
Do you know what spiritual idolatry is?
Jesus is awaiting for repentance. It is not happening.
What will Jehovah do?
