The Watchtower, October 15, 1980, p. 31

"And if the wicked system of this world survived until the turn of the century, which is highly improbable in view of world trends and the fulfillment of Bible prophecy, there would still be survivors of the World War I generation."


Awake!, November 8, 1986, pp. 7-8

"When will these promises be fulfilled? Let's see how some other youngsters answer...Samuel, a 15- year-old youth from the same country, also believes in a complete change; "For the year 2000, I visualize a world transformed into a beautiful paradise! But I don't think that either the present world or its rulers will live to see that day...We are living in the last days of the system of things...Only Jehovah, our Creator, can and will do that soon...Why are the last youngsters interviewed so sure of beneficial changes in the near future?...A close examination of Bible prophecies showed the young Witnesses that we are now living in a privileged period of history, for the time has come for God to intervene in human affairs and rid the entire earth of unrighteousness. The Scriptures call this short period preceding God's intervention 'the time of the end' and specify that it will not last longer than a 'generation'...Since the 'generation' of 1914 is now well advanced in years, God's promise is really up-to-date news for young people today."


The Watchtower, January 1, 1989, p. 12

(magazine only, changed in bound volume) "The apostle Paul was spearheading the Christian missionary activity. He was also laying a foundation for a work that would be completed in our 20th century."

"The apostle Paul was spearheading the Christian missionary activity. He was also laying a foundation for a work that would be completed in our day."


The Watchtower, October 1, 1989, p. 31

"We have ample reasons to expect that this preaching will be completed in our time. Does that mean before the turn of a new month, a new year, a new decade, a new century? No human knows...we do not need to know..."


The Watchtower, June 1, 1990, p. 7

"Jesus warned his disciples not to speculate. He said: 'It does not belong to you to get knowledge of the times or seasons which the Father has placed in his own jurisdiction.' (Acts 1:7) And regarding the exact 'day and hour' when these events would occur, Jesus said that only his Father, Jehovah God, knew. (Matthew 24:36) Thus, the Bible is no supporter of any of the now growing number of doomsday prophets and movements that point to the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve, 1999, as the end of the world."
