The Way Forward
I am asking you to show me one or more scriptures which changes the arithmetic in these Seven Key Scriptures which I have drawn your attention to.
You need to provide scriptural support for two timelines:-
- The years of Nebuchadnezzar's kingship AS WORLD RULER.
- The INCOMPLETE reign of Jehoiakim AS A VASSAL OF BABYLON.
I am not asking you for an article or a quote. I am not asking for input or responses from brothers who cannot change doctrine, only those who can reason on the Seven Key Scriptures, together with the associated Explanation and Helpful Charts and do something about it.
If you can show me legitimate scriptural cross reference which changes the arithmetic that I am drawing your attention to and makes legitimate your interpretation, which rests on the two missing timelines, I will accept that. Futhermore, I will update my charts to demonstate what you have proved to me.
If you cannot and you accept that this is a mistake on your part, please confirm this to me personally, in writing (without involving others) on letter headed paper, signed on behalf of all members of the Governing Body of the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania by one or more members of the Governing Body. Tell me what corrections you will be making and provide me with assurances that the corrections will be made urgently.
Under no circumstances pass this matter onto the elders, circuit overseers or branch representatives. Firstly it is not the scriptural way to resolve this matter.
Matthew 18:15“Moreover, if your brother commits a sin, go lay bare his fault between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.
Secondly, if having done their own research a brother (without the authority to change doctrine) agrees with my findings, that brother is not in a position to change Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania doctrine. This puts them in a very difficult position which is unfair and harmful. It is harmful to their conscience and harmful to them socially. As an expression of their powerlessness they may make the statement 'wait on Jehovah' but Jehovah has already spoken by means of his prophets. It is not a case of waiting on Jehovah but waiting on yourselves.
If I receive no personal correspondence from you, directly addressing this matter, within the set time frame, I will take it that your silence means that you agree that my findings are correct and that you stand opposed to the words of Jehovah's prophets Jeremiah, Ezekiel and even the prophet Daniel. You stand opposed to Jehovah Himself.
Matthew 18:16-17But if he does not listen, take along with you one or two more, in order that at the mouth of two or three witnesses every matter may be established. If he does not listen to them, speak to the congregation. If he does not listen even to the congregation, let him be to you just as a man of the nations and as a tax collector.
