Life Everlasting-in Freedom of the Sons of God, 1966 ed., p. 29

"According to this trustworthy Bible chronology six thousand years from man's creation will end in 1975, and the seventh period of a thousand years of human history will begin in the fall of 1975 C.E."


Life Everlasting-in Freedom of the Sons of God, 1966 ed., p. 30

"It would not be by mere chance or accident but would be according to the loving purpose of Jehovah God for the reign of Jesus Christ, the "Lord of the sabbath,' to run parallel with the seventh millennium of man's existence."


The Watchtower, May 1, 1967, p. 262

"Interestingly, the autumn of the year 1975 marks the end of 6,000 years of human experience. This is ascertainable from reliable chronology preserved in the Bible itself. What will that year mean for humankind? Will it be the time when God executes the wicked and starts off the thousand-year reign of his Son Jesus Christ? It very well could, but we will have to wait to see. Yet of this we can be certain: the generation that Jesus said would witness those events is nearing its close. The time is close at hand. On God's "timetable" we are in the closing days of a wicked system of things that will soon be gone forever. A glorious new order is immediately before us."


Kingdom Ministry, March 1968, p. 4

"There are only about ninety months left before 6,000 years of man's existence on earth is completed... The majority of people living today will probably be alive when Armageddon breaks out."


The Watchtower, May 1, 1968, p. 271

"Thus, Adam's naming of the animals and his realizing that he needed a counterpart would have occupied only a brief time after his creation. Since it was also Jehovah's purpose for man to multiply and fill the earth, it is logical that he would create Eve soon after Adam, perhaps just a few weeks or months later in the same year, 4026 B.C.E. After her creation, God's rest day, the seventh period, immediately followed."


The Watchtower, August 15, 1968, p. 494

"What about all this talk concerning the year 1975? Lively discussions, some based on speculation, have burst into flame during recent months among serious students of the Bible. Their interest has been kindled by the belief that 1975 will mark the end of 6,000 years of human history since Adam's creation. The nearness of such an important date indeed fires the imagination and presents unlimited possibilities for discussion."


The Watchtower, August 15, 1968, p. 499

"One gets a total of 5,993 years, come this autumn, since Adam's creation. That means, in the fall of the year 1975..."


The Watchtower, August 15, 1968, p. 499

"Are we to assume from this study that the battle of Armageddon will be all over by the autumn of 1975, and the long-looked-for thousand-year reign of Christ will begin by then?...Why not? Because after his creation Adam lived some time during the "sixth day," which unknown amount of time would need to be subtracted from Adam's 930 years, to determine when the sixth seven-thousand-year period or 'day' ended, and how long Adam lived into the 'seventh day.' And yet the end of that sixth creative 'day' could end within the same Gregorian calendar year of Adam's creation. It may involve only a difference of weeks or months, not years."


The Watchtower, August 15, 1968, p. 500

"One thing is absolutely certain, Bible chronology reinforced with fulfilled Bible prophecy shows that six thousand years of man's existence will soon be up, yes, within this generation!"


The Watchtower, August 15, 1968, p. 501

"To the contrary, it is a time when one should be keenly aware that the end of this system of things is rapidly coming to its violent end...Even if one cannot see beyond 1975, is this any reason to be less active?"


Awake!, October 8, 1968, p. 14

"There is another way that helps confirm the fact that we are living in the final few years of this "time of the end." (Dan. 12:9) The Bible shows that we are nearing the end of a full 6,000 years of human history. What significance does this have?...Revelation chapter 20, verse 6, shows that God's heavenly kingdom will rule over the earth for one thousand years after the end of this system of things...The seventh one-thousand-year period could be likened to the seventh day, the sabbath, of that week...How fitting it would be for God, following this pattern, to end man's misery after six thousand years of human rule and follow it with His glorious Kingdom rule for a thousand years...

According to reliable Bible chronology, Adam and Eve were created in 4026 B.C.E...That seven-year period will evidently finish in the autumn of the year 1975."


Kingdom Ministry, June 1969, p. 3

"In view of the short time left, a decision to pursue a career in this system of things is not only unwise but extremely dangerous...Many young brothers and sisters were offered scholarships or employment that promised fine pay. However, they turned them down and put spiritual interests first."


The Watchtower, October 15, 1969, pp. 622-623

"More recently earnest researchers of the Holy Bible have made a recheck of its chronology.

According to their calculations the six millenniums of mankind's life on earth would end in the mid-seventies. Thus the seventh millennium from man's creation by Jehovah God would begin within less than ten years... the arrival of the seventh millennium of man's existence on earth suggests a gladsome change for war-stricken humankind...peaceful reign of a thousand years...his thousand-year reign would have to be the seventh in a series of thousand-year periods or millenniums...Soon now six millenniums of his wicked exploiting of mankind as his slaves will end...Would not, then, the end of six millenniums of mankind's laborious enslavement under Satan the Devil be the fitting time for Jehovah God to usher in a Sabbath millennium for all his human creatures? Yes, indeed!"


Aid to Bible Understanding, 1971 ed., p. 333

"Total time period form Adam's creation to the present year, 1969, C.E.: 5,994 years."


Kingdom Ministry, May 1974, p. 3

"Reports are heard of brothers selling their homes and property and planning to finish out the rest of their days in this old system in the pioneer service. Certainly this is a fine way to spend the short time remaining before the wicked world's end."


The Watchtower, May 1, 1975, p. 285

"Another speaker, F.W. Franz, the Society's vice-president, forcefully impressed on the audience the urgency of the Christian preaching work. He stressed that, according to dependable Bible chronology, 6,000 years of human history will end this coming September according to the lunar calendar...Does this mean that we know exactly when God will destroy this old system and establish a new one? Franz showed that we do not, for we do not know how short was the time interval between Adam's creation and the creation of Eve, at which point God's rest day of seven thousand years began. (Heb. 4:3,4) But, he pointed out, 'we should not think that this year of 1975 is of no significance to us,' for the Bible proves that Jehovah is 'the greatest chronologist' and 'we have the anchor date, 1914, marking the end of the Gentile Times.'"
