Does the 2014 JW book "God's Kingdom Rules!" provide an accurate historical deptiction of Bible Students and the historical progression to todays Jehovah's Wintesses?

Forces of Evil in the End Times

For at the coming of the Lord there will be great activity on the part of Satan in the form of all kinds of deceptive miracles, signs, and marvels!” — 2 Thessalonians 2:9 (20th Century N.T.)

Many Christians are concerned about the increase of spiritism and occultism in the earth today, seeing it as a sign of the end times.  In fact, Christians need to be especially on guard to shield themselves from this insidious foe, because they are the special targets of Satan and the fallen angels—demons. “Be of sober spirit, be on the alert.  Your adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, firm in your faith…” (I Peter 5:8, 9 NAS)  Indeed, these end times have witnessed the accumulative effect of the forces of evil—rotting away the fabric of society.

The power to be strong and to resist these evil influences is in the word of God.  “This is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” (1 John 5:4) “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17) It is our responsibility, then, to learn just how and why demons got so involved with mankind; what can be identified as spiritism today; and how we can protect ourselves and our loved ones against the forces of evil. The Apostle Paul stated: “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft… they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” (Galatians 5:19-21)  Therefore, it is essential for the Christian to be circumspect and not careless on this subject.

    I work within the music business & I can tell you that alot of music is being used in a massive way to suck undescerning music lovers into the occult. Many musical aristes of today are involve with the occult & the illuminati.
    Music including heavy metal, rock, rap & modern have hidden satanic messages which can be heard if you slow down or play backward the track. Also there are many artistes that say they have an alter ego, a split personality, some will even go as far as saying that they let another being (spirit being) enter their body, this is because it makes them perform in such a way that they couldn’t possible do by themselves. These “pop idols” have actually openly admitted to allowing themselves get taken over by this alter ego/spirit being. I think you & I know who these other entities are. They thrive on the huge crowds of fans adoring them, it’s a form of worship & this is what they want because this takes people away from worshipping the one true God, Jehovah & totally goes against our Lord Jesus’ teachings as he has warned us against this type of worshipping & involving yourself in such rituals, evil sects & spiritism. These artistes sell themselves to the wicked one in return for fame & fortune but there is always more to it of which they don’t find out until it’s too late for them.
    Don’t get me wrong, not ALL music is bad but we need to be aware of what we listen to & what our children listen to. Many of these pop stars will portray such symbolizms such as the all seeing eye & promote it in one way or another. Or they’ll have some false God such as Horus on their promo pic, cd covers, even on the clothing they wear. Teenagers think it’s cool & imitate their idols by wearing the logos & give hand gestures that represent various occult symbols. Even some childrens tv programs have hidden subliminal messages within them. We just need to discern ourselves & make it known, alert those that could become ensnared by the industry.

      Daz, I am psychotherapist for some well known artist here in the states. I have toured with them and after the last tour 2 got huge talk shows on TV.
      I want to share a story with you. A well known artist in Canada and the southern US had a spirit person most of their life (gender left out so identity is not clear). They told me about the proposition put to them. They were promised fame and fortune (they are good) but they must give up their life at the height of their career and relatively young. The person said they were given names of stars that died young and it must be spectacular like a plane falling. They told of their paks and the age and took credit for taking them at that age only. She refused the proposal but isn’t afraid of this entity. There is more to the conversation but it was enlightening. This entity said her progress would stay where it is, no matter what happens, so I agree with you about the music, not all. A poster called me the other day and gave somewhat similar info as you just posted. I think they must have been reading the same copy on here. H.O.U.S.E music was their topic. I have family (witnesses) that are heavily involved in it with 900 hundred people at one party. I witnessed the behaviour at this massive gathering, there was something not right at all. I dropped a person off and got away from this huge JW house music party. I dropped in on another while traveling and it had 700 witnesses attending I was told and I knew something was there so I said Adios to my relative. You are making good points.

      Thankyou for your reply Jacqueline, wow very interesting what you posted. I know more about this but thought best to keep it simple & direct so readers on here can see the basic outline of the subject & if they want to ask questions then they are more than welcome. It is scary what people will do for fame & fortune!
      You sure have seen & experienced a lot Jacqueline. I really enjoy reading all your posts as you are very in depth with all that you write about & also very sincere.

      Warm & loving regards,
      Daz

        Daz, I wasn’t your typical witness, my mother was not typical either she raised us her way. Sent sons to college although the tower said no. She got me out of the south as she saw something different about me she said. I did the Solomon thing. I opened my house to CO and DO. Giving big (It was sincere at time) opened doors within the org where a girl would never go. Plus I owned a company and had a skill that was beneficial to the CO and wives(Spa, beauty salon, stress management, massage etc) I got inside of their world. I also was fortunate to get chosen into the entertainment industry right after a 30 year marriage within the org. (married young). I observed and traveled 20-35 weeks out of the year. Lived outside the country and experienced different things but never disobeying Jehovah. I was as near to a spiritual advisor as some on the tours would get. I hear a lot, saw a lot. In fact one very, very popular witness entertainer was rumored to have dealt in the dark side and the fame was unbelievable and the death even more so. I saw people as humans not as I had been taught to believe. I was troubled that they might do whatever it took to get to God if they could believe these religions. Many had bodyguards and never could trust. They named a highway after our deceased Mayor yesterday (ribbon cutting and all) I was his therapist and confidant. He was a very humble, sincere and spiritual man. We would talk for hours during sessions. I treated bodyguards for the major Black Muslim leader here in America (sent by the mayor) and saw them as humans wondering about life.
        All this time as I went from one crisis to another, I felt the call of Christ in a different way, but I fought within the organization to see if they could see something was wrong with some of the teachings.
        Then a 95 year old uncle (elder) said we could have all his books and among them was a first draft copy of IN SEARCH OF CHRISTIANN FREEDOM” bu RAYMOND FRANZ-governingbody member.
        Then I located “CRISIS OF CONSCIENCE” by Ray. My brother sat on his appeal meeting but walked out and left the org for 5 years but would not tell any of us why. We just let him be as he was shocked about something. He wanted no part of prosecuting RIGHTEOUS BLOOD. He went into spanish sector and recovered. He was a missionary in Africa and lived in Bethel.
        My experiences was for this day as I was literally exposed to way to much within the org. But I am a Black family and there were not many within the org when my parents and grands were in, so I use my parents last name as a result.
        I write what I observed and have observed in hopes it will help someone. It was Holy Spirit that causes me to remember almost everything I hear or see. It is a gift and It has put me on a road of obsession now with Christ and the Divine Plan rather than that organization. My family has encouraged me to write a book but it is here on the site where I pray it will help.
        My experiences protected me from the wrath or consequences of the org also as I sought and got legal protection from them as I was not accustomed to being as fearful of them. My travels gave me time to think as after 9/11 I chose to do most of it in an RV alone and I studied and prayed while looking in the sky. I love helping people and I love people.

        Daz, I am looking at the movie Noah, interesting on the author’s take that the animals were put to sleep. That would explain the food question and the by products of their food consumption. Just saying.
        This is probably the worse Noah-flood story I have ever seen. Even with a script he got so much wrong.
