One of the latest installments on JW Hollywood (aka jw broadcasting) is the bizarre “The Kingdom—100 Years and Counting” video that’s taking us all the way back to the days of brother Russell and his now infamous declaration that the “Times of the Nations have now come to an End”.We all know of course that this is all a big lie since Russell expected the end of the world and not Jesus’s “invisible presence ” to begin at that time .The disappointment of 1914 and brother Russell’s subsequent death few years later led to an internal turmoil within the Bible Students that lasted well in to the late 1920’s .Of course the Watchtower is a master in rewriting history and they will have you believe the exact opposite to be true.
Surprisingly I didn’t find that to be the most interesting part of the video though.In my opinion the most crucial part of that little film was the first 42 seconds .Most Jehovah’s Witnesses watching these first few seconds will be scratching their heads thinking ,what on earth is the fuss about the jewellery all about ?
These first 42 seconds my friends is the only piece of true Jehovah’s Witnesses history that I came across in all my years as a Witness .I also believe that whoever is behind the Watchtower just gave you the middle figure .Let me explain …
Cross and Crown
The cross and crown ring and lapel pin seen in this video symbol is closely associated with Freemasonry, specifically the Knight Templar degree of the York Rite of Freemasonry. The symbol is also known as “Knight Templar’s Blood-Red Passion Cross and Crown”. The cross and crown symbol is often surrounded by the phrase “In Hoc Signo Vinces”, which is Latin for “By this sign thou shalt conquer”. This is a reference to the story of Constantine, who reportedly had a vision of a Chi Rho symbol, and a voice saying “By this sign thou shalt conquer”.
The symbol was also featured in the early publications of the Watchtower first appearing on the cover of the January 1881 issue of Zion’s Watch Tower, the cross and crown were surrounded by a wreath of laurel leaves, and the symbol was also used on lapel pins, buttons (metal and celluloid) and pendants of various designs. However, not all of its uses by the I.B.S.A. included the wreath of laurel leaves. Charles Taze Russell’s graveside is also marked by a pyramid memorial erected by the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society with an illustration of the Cross and Crown symbol.In later years the Watchtower discontinued the use of these symbols viewing them as a “pagan symbol”.
Use of symbolism as a way of communication
The excessive use of symbolism at the beginning of the video is not accidental .The men behind the Watchtower no matter how hard they try to detach themselves from the spotlight they can’t forever hide their true identity and I don’t mean the governing body. Whether or not part of the Freemasonry they use the same methods and tactics to communicate as other more prominent parts of the same hidden Elite that runs this planet behind the scenes.They love to hide their symbolism in plain sight as a way of communicating between the “initiated” that those who are not “enlightened” (in their eyes) cannot understand – and they love it so much they hide the symbols in the infrastructure they control and rule.The motivation behind this brazen move is that it actually gives them a perverse kick to know that despite elements of truth or pieces of the puzzle being hidden in plain sight, the masses (including low rank Jehovah’s Witnesses)still remain largely ignorant, furthermore they also believe that by subconsciously placing their symbols in front of the public they are actually tricking them into unwittingly handing over their consent, the very thing that allows the few to rule over the many.
