World War II

Face the Facts, 1938 ed., p. 50

"Those Jonadabs who now contemplate marriage, it would seem, would do better if they wait a few years, until the fiery storm of Armageddon is gone, and to then enter the marital relationship and enjoy the blessings of participating in filling the earth with righteous and perfect children."


Judge Rutherford Uncovers Fifth Column, 1940 ed., p. 15

"I stated that the Nazis and Fascists were bent upon destroying the British Empire, and that that would be accomplished."


The Watchtower, September 15, 1941, p. 288

"The remaining months before Armageddon..." Consolation, October 29, 1941, p. 11 "Meantime the German people are awakening to their horrible predicament. They no longer laugh as decent men and women were made to laugh, but their faces are white, pinched and filled with forebodings of what the near future will bring and is already hastening to bring to them--Armageddon, the battle of that great day of God Almighty."


The Watchtower, December 15, 1941, p. 372

"Nowhere in the prophecy does it appear that 'the king of the north', that is, the 'Axis powers', shall be victorious in the present war between the two 'kings', nor does the prophecy indicate that 'the king of the south' will suffer defeat in battle at the hands of 'the king of the north'...All nations forming 'the king of the south' become arbitrary and totalitarian; and the facts show that that is now practically accomplished. All these nations becoming totalitarian, the liberties of the people completely disappear, and the people are regimented and controlled in all matters. The nations composing 'the king of the south' manifestly have reasoned that they must adopt the totalitarian system in order to successfully fight against the 'Axis powers'. All admit that regardless of the result of the present war the nations will never return to the former method of rule... Will the present world conflict between the 'Axis powers' and the so-called 'democracies', the opposers, end in a decisive victory for either side?

The prophecy indicates the contrary result...the prophecy of God...All the prophecies and the present-day facts indicate that the contending nations will before long enter into some sort of peace treaty."


The Watchtower, December 15, 1941, p. 377

"Thus the end for ever of Nazi-Fascist-Heirarchy rule will come, and that will mark the end for ever of demon rule."


Consolation, May 27, 1942, p. 13

"Further proof that these princes will shortly take office upon earth as perfect men is found in the prophecy of Daniel. 'But go thou thy way till the end be; for thou shalt rest and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.' (Daniel 12:13) Daniel's 'lot' is that of these princes. Proof is now submitted that we are now living at 'the end of the days', and we may expect to see Daniel and the other mentioned princes any day now!"


Kingdom Ministry, January 1968, p.5

"During World War I God's people expected it to lead directly into Armageddon, but Jehovah prevented such a climax at that time. We didn't succumb to such an expectation during World War II."
