United Nations

UPDATE/ADDITION to "Jehovah's Genuine Mountain"


You may have heard it said, that the U.N. is the image of the "Wild Beast" of Rev.13:1-8.
Why has the "Watchtower" taught this?
They say it is because of the "blasphemous names" (Rev.13:1; 17:3) which are said to cover the Beast. They have taught that this is fulfilled within the United Nations, because these claim to be God's Kingdom on earth.
How did the "Watchtower" arrive at this judgment?
For many years, the United Nations has had a monument in a nearby park, which includes a plaque upon which Isa.2:4 is scripted.



These plaques symbolized the intentions of the U.N., and it's aspiration to bring unity and peace to the Nations of the world.
These plaques are no longer officially endorsed by the UN, in compliance with it's adjusted tenet to remove a flavor of religious preference.

The point is this....
If the "Watchtower" interprets the image of the Wild Beast as being the UN, on the basis that it falsely claimed to be the fulfillment of Isa.2:2-4 (blasphemy);
then how is it that the "Watchtower" itself  is not the "Wild beast"; since it is the only identity left, falsely making this same claim?
In actuality, the U.N. never claimed to fulfill the prophecy at Isa.2:4.
This plaque commemorated it's aspirations, and it's "prayer for peace on earth".

Let us not forget that according to scripture, "people of all the 'earth' will worship" the Wild Beast (Rev.13:8) (see Greek),
and allow it's decrees to direct their thinking and actions (Rev.13:16) instead of God (Deut.11:18). This has not been true of the United Nations.

The "Watchtower" actually does make the claim that they fulfill Isa.2:2,3,4.
They themselves make the claim, that this "Mountain-like" Organization, is the very fulfillment of Isa.2:2,3,4.
They teach that if anyone puts their trust in their "Mountain-like Organization", they will find the very salvation of God.

Is this true?
For a scriptural comparison between the Mountain of Bible prophecy, and the "Watchtower" Organization;

  1. Hello Sister Pearl,

    When I read this article, it reminded me of how the Watchtower has taught that the United Nations is the 'wild beast' of Book of Revelation, and that they would destroy ALL false religion on Earth.

    Even when I was a child, I wondered how men were going to be able to go to every city, village,and remote place all over the world and stop men from worshiping false gods. And I also thought, "Wow! That seems like that would take an awful long time to do!"

    It's a ridiculous notion entirely.

  2. I also found the idea that all people of the entire world...
    of every religious persuasion and culture,
    would "worship" the UN, allowing it to direct their thinking and actions.
    Such unity can not even take place in a political and religious way even among small groups of people.
    Only when the "Image's" subjects ARE the same religion, is it reasonable to foresee such fulfillment.
    "Jehovah's Witnesses" fit this prophesy in all its details.
    The only challenge is finding scriptural proof, that when God refers to "people of all the inhabited earth", that this really is a direct symbol for those who are in covenant with Him. I have found such references, as cited in various articles here.

    1. The "inhabited earth" of Rev.13:8 is translated from the Greek word "oikou". You may wish to read what it really means, at this link: http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2015/11/who-is-earth.html
      It's real meaning is in harmony with Rev.5:9-10.
