Witness leadership use the Parable of the Sheep and the Goats to claim that the salvation of the “Other Sheep” depends on their obedience to the instructions of the Governing Body. They allege that this parable “proves” that there is a two-class system of salvation with 144,000 going to heaven, while the rest live as sinners on earth for the 1,000 years. Is that the true meaning of this parable or do Witnesses have it all wrong? Join us to examin the evidence and decide for yourself.
This series examines the “End Times” prophesy found at Matthew 24, Luke 21 and Mark 13. It debunks much of the false interpretations that have led men to alter their lives in the belief they can foreknow the arrival of Jesus as the Messianic King. Topics like the so-called sign comprised of wars, famines, pestilences and earthquakes are dealt with scripturally. The real meaning of the Great Tribulation of Matthew 24:21 and Revelation 7:14 is discussed. The 1914 doctrine of Jehovah’s Witnesses is analyzed and its many flaws revealed. The true understanding of Matthew 24:23-31 is analyzed, as is the proper application of who the faithful and discreet slave is.

Examining Matthew 24, Part 12: The Faithful and Discreet Slave
Jehovah’s Witnesses contend that the men (currently 8) making up their governing body constitute a fulfillment of what they consider to be the prophecy of the faithful and discreet slave referred to at Matthew 24:45-47. Is this accurate or merely a self-serving interpretation? If the latter, then what or who is the faithful and discreet slave, and what of the other three slaves that Jesus refers to in Luke’s parallel account?
This video will attempt to answer all these questions using Scriptural context and reasoning.
Examining Matthew 24, Part 11: The Parables from the Mount of Olives
There are four parables that our Lord left us in his final discourse on the Mount of Olives. How do these relate to us today? How has the organization misapplied these parables and what harm has that done? We will begin our discussion with an explanation of the true nature of parables.
Examining Matthew 24, Part 10: The Sign of Christ’s Presence

Examining Matthew 24, Part 9: Exposing the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Generation Doctrine as False
For over 100 years, Jehovah’s Witnesses have been predicting that Armageddon is just around the corner, based largely on their interpretation of Matthew 24:34 which speaks of a “generation” that will see both the end and the beginning of the last days. The question is, are they getting it wrong about which last days Jesus was referring to? Is there a way to determine the answer from Scripture in a way that leaves no room for doubt. Indeed, there is as this video will demonstrate.
Examining Matthew 24, Part 8: Pulling the Linchpin from the 1914 Doctrine
As hard as it may be to believe, the entire foundation of the religion of Jehovah’s Witnesses is based on the interpretation of a single Bible verse. If the understanding they have of that verse can be shown to be wrong, their entire religious identity goes away. This video will examine that Bible verse and put the foundational doctrine of 1914 under a scriptural microscope.
Examining Matthew 24, Part 7: The Great Tribulation
Matthew 24:21 speaks of “great tribulation” to come upon Jerusalem which occurred during 66 to 70 C.E. Revelation 7:14 also speaks of “great tribulation”. Are these two events connected in some way? Or is the Bible speaking about two entirely different tribulations, totally unrelated to one another? This presentation will attempt to demonstrate what each scripture is referring to and how that understanding affects all Christians today.

Examining Matthew 24, Part 6: Is Preterism Applicable to Last Days Prophecies?
A number of exJWs seem to be persuaded by the idea of Preterism, that all the prophecies in Revelation and Daniel, as well as those in Matthew 24 and 25 were fulfilled in the first century. Can we definitely prove otherwise? Are there any adverse effects resulting from a Preterist belief?

Examining Matthew 24; Part 3: Preaching in All the Inhabited Earth
Was Matthew 24:14 given to us as a means to measure how close we are to the return of Jesus? Does it speak of a worldwide preaching work to warn all humanity of their looming doom and eternal destruction? Witnesses believe they alone have this commission and that their preaching work is life saving? Is that the case, or are they actually working against God’s purpose. This video will endeavour to answer those questions.
Examining Matthew 24, Part 2: The Warning
In our last video we examined the question asked of Jesus by four of his apostles as recorded at Matthew 24:3, Mark 13:2, and Luke 21:7. We learned that they wanted to know when the things he had prophesied – specifically the destruction of Jerusalem and its temple –...
