What Watchtower Wrote—1975


“…six thousand years… will end in 1975… and the seventh period… will begin in the fall of 1975… It would not be by mere chance… for the [millennial] reign of Jesus Christ… to run parallel with… the seventh millennium…” — Life Everlasting in Freedom of the Sons of God, 1966 pp. 29, 30

“If you are a young person, you also need to face the fact that you will never grow old in this present system of things. Why not? Because all the evidence in fulfillment of Bible prophecy indicates that this corrupt system is due to end in a few years. Of the generation that observed the beginning of the “last days” in 1914, Jesus foretold: “This generation will by no means pass away…” If you are in highschool… it means at least four, perhaps even six or eight years to graduate into a specialized career. But where will this system of things be by that time? It will be well on the way towards its finish, if not actually gone!” — Awake! May 22, 1969 p. 15
