Who Are You Calling a 'False Prophet'? Part 2

"Scriptures definitely fix the fact that there will be resurrection of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and other faithful ones of old, and that these will have the first favor, we may expect 1925 to witness the return of these faithful men of Israel from the condition of the dead..."

  1. My grandparents were already "in the truth" when that statement was made. (Too bad you didn't put the reference on the reprint.) Anyone who doesn't believe International Bible Students (what Jehovah's Witnesses were called prior to the 1930s) considered this "the truth" should Google "Beth Sarim"--the house built with JW donations in San Diego, California ('because the climate is so nice they will like it!'). This property was specifically constructed for and actually deeded by the Watchtower corporation for the soon-to-be resurrected "ancient worthies", such as Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, etc. Of course no one other than Rutherford and his personal entourage ever actually stayed in that property until it until the Watch Tower Society sold it year's later when there was no resurrection.

    Apparently it never occurred to Judge Rutherford (The Jehovah's Witnesses spiritual leader during those years) that these resurrected Men of Old might just want to live among their many wives and large families who at the very least spoke the same language--in the land which God had promised would be theirs forever rather than Rutherford's personal choice of paradise here in the USA.
