    It is to us God has revealed them through his spirit.—1 Cor. 2:10.

    If you have been serving Jehovah for decades, you may have noticed a gradual shift in the way our literature explains many of the narratives recorded in the Bible. How so? In times past, it was more common for our literature to take what might be called a type-antitype approach to Scriptural accounts.

    The Bible narrative was considered the type, and any prophetic fulfillment of the story was the antitype. Why have things changed? As we might expect, over the years Jehovah has helped “the faithful and discreet slave” to become steadily more discreet. (Matt. 24:45-47)


    Discretion has led to greater caution when it comes to calling a Bible account a prophetic drama unless there is a clear Scriptural basis for doing so. Thus, we find that our literature today focuses more on the simple, practical lessons about faith, endurance, godly devotion, and other vital qualities that we learn about from Bible accounts. w15 3/15 1:7, 9, 10, 12

    They have stopped trying to understand the prophetic message laced throughout God's Word. They have given up. They are Babylon's Sister. Shake-it.

    I have a list of all the publications which have now been discontinued, and sadly they include the prophetic books, like the Revelation, Daniel, Isaiah and Jeremiah study books and this is just to name a few. The reason why, is that the path of the righteous one is getting brighter, they are starting to spot the errors which do not tally up. So the best thing to do is discard the evidence. How long can they keep plastering over the cracks? Jehovah's appointed time will soon bring judgement and reveal what's been hidden.
    Isaiah 26:7
    7 "The path of the righteous one is upright. Because you are upright, You will smooth out the course of the righteous"
