“You will be brought low;From the ground you will speak,and what you say will be muffled by dust.Your voice will come from the ground.Like the voice of a spirit medium,And your words will chirp from the dust.-Isaiah 29:4
The Watchtower Society has always portrayed itself as the modern day Isaiah ,Jehovah’s prophet proclaiming judgments against Christendom(see, Ariel the city named the lion of God) .On the other hand they see all other Christian denominations as deserving punishment .Like ancient Jerusalem prior to its attack from Sennacherib’s Assyrian Army they believe that Christendom deserves divine judgment as Babylon the Great of the Revelation. This prophetic application though simply doesn’t add up .In a momentary lapse of sincerity back in 1961 ,the Watchtower under the section Questions from Readers of March the 15th :”How can we explain the scripture at Isaiah 29:4?” admitted the paradox and applied for the first and last time the prophesy’s analogies as they should really be .Please read :

Its loud and lofty tone will change to mere whisper. It would use the suppressed language of fear and alarm as if it spoke from the dust, or in a shrill small voice, like a spirit medium or a necromancer of the dead communicated in ancient Israel with the spirits.
Soon the “modern day” Sennacherib along with it’s army will attack and destroy not only Christendom but Ariel itself the ,the Watchtower Society and it’s prophets. Who is the modern day Sennacherib and what motivates him to attack Ariel ? The next article will deal with these questions .(To be continued…)
