“The sacred secret comes to its happy climax! Gloriously, magnificently, it is brought to a triumphant finish in 1914 when the Lord Jehovah enthrones his Christ as associate King…. When the sounding of the seven trumpets got under way in 1922, the Bible Students’ convention at Cedar Point, Ohio, featured a talk by J. F. Rutherford based on the scripture ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand’… The trumpet blast of the seventh angel was reflected in highlights of the Bible Students’ convention in Detroit, Michigan, July 30-August 6, 1928… Here, then, is the third woe. It comes quickly! It is Jehovah’s means of bringing ruination to those who desecrate his ‘footstool,’ this lovely earth on which we live. It is set in motion by the Messianic Kingdom—the sacred secret of God. God’s enemies, and Christendom’s leaders in particular, have been tormented by the first two woes—resulting principally from the locust plague and the armies of cavalry; but the third woe, which Jehovah’s Kingdom itself administers, brings more than torment. It provides the death stroke in ousting a ruinous human society and its rulers. This will come as the climax of Jehovah’s judging at Armageddon…” Revelation, Its Grand Climax is at Hand
According to the Grand Climax commentary the awesome angelic trumpeters long ago sounded notice that Jehovah’s glorious purpose had been accomplished back in 1914. The seventh and final trumpet was supposedly sounded 80 years ago, in 1928, and was reflected in a long-since forgotten public address by Joseph Rutherford. According to the Watchtower God's glorious purpose has already been concluded!
Reasonably, thoguh, the symbolic trumpet blasts heralding the revelation of Jehovah’s judgments are sounded as an immediate prelude, before such judgments are carried out. Obviously that has not been the case with the seventh trumpet, which is intended to serve notice of the finale; when God brings ruination upon the ruiners of the earth.
This is simply another evidence that the Watchtower Society’s 1914 parousia doctrine is nothing more than an artfully contrived false story.
