The YORWW Congregation Speaks as a "Voice in the Wilderness" &

“A Beacon of Light” to All the Congregations of Jehovah's Witnesses! - Isaiah 40:3

35 And I will bring YOU into the WILDERNESS OF THE PEOPLES and put myself on judgment with YOU there face to face.


36 “‘Just as I put myself on judgment with YOUR forefathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so I shall put myself on judgment with YOU,’ is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah.


37 ‘And I will make YOU pass under the rod and bring YOU into the bond of the covenant.


38 And I will clean out from YOU the revolters and the transgressors against me, for out of the land of their alien residence I shall bring them forth, but onto the soil of Israel they will not come; and YOU people will have to know that I am Jehovah.’”

(Ezekiel 20:35-38; Compare Revelation 12:6, 14)


Why Can’t The Watchtower Society Explain The Above Prophecy In Their Literature?  Could It Be Unknowingly, Jehovah’s Witnesses Are Going To Fulfill This Prophecy?

A Warm Welcome to ALL  Persons of Interest!!!


The YORWW Congregation would like to cordially welcome ALL persons of interest to the opening of our "Living Waters" Discussion Forum, established first as of April 24, 2004, and re-opened at our new server location as of June 21, 2004This year, we are celebrating our 20th Anniversary for this discussion board, where we have had well over 400,000 visitors! (This is a conservative estimate, for example see Forum 21.)

As members of the
YORWW Congregation, we believe and teach Jehovah's Witnesses are God's Name People, established as such in 1931, when they took the Divine Name upon themselves, thus starting what some historians and theologians say was the beginning of the "Divine Name Movement" of our time. And as such, they have become Modern Day "Israel" of Bible Prophecy. Our name YORWW means "YAH OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS WORLD WIDE" and is taken from the prophetic bible text of Jeremiah 33:16 and Psalms 68:4.


Jehovah, the God of Israel, the "God of Truth," is the Ultimate Source of Divine Truth..."Living Waters" of Truth. (Psalms 31:5; Jeremiah 2:13) In times of National Apostasy, the prophet Jeremiah refers to the disastrous situation facing the nation this way,

"O Jehovah, the hope of Israel, all those who are leaving you will be put to shame. Those
APOSTATIZING from me will be written down even in the earth, because they have left the SOURCE OF LIVING WATER, JEHOVAH. Heal me, O Jehovah, and I shall be healed. Save me, and I will be saved; for you are my praise." -- Jeremiah 17:13, 14

In such difficult times, the prophet Isaiah referred to this blatantly "renegade" nation of God's Name People, Israel, as being an outright
"APOSTATE NATION" that had ignored all warnings given to it to repent. (Proverbs 1:30-32; Isaiah 10:6) Yes, in the end, the unrepentant nation of Israel proved to be a people who absolutely refused to comply with God's Will in righteousness.

In fact, we recall the inspired writer Paul said of rebellious, apostate Israel,

"But as respects Israel he says: All day long I have spread out my hands toward a people that is
disobedient and talks back." -- Romans 10:21

Therefore, as a final act of judgment from the Holy God of Israel, the prophet Ezekiel spoke the following powerful words of condemnation and punishment, foretold to come from the hands of the brutal pagan leader and King of Babylon, King Nebuchadnezzar -- the designated destroyer of Solomon's magnificent Temple. He said:

"And as for you, O son of man, sigh with shaking hips. Even with bitterness you should sigh before their eyes. And it must occur that, in case they say to you, 'On account of what are you sighing?' you must say,
AT A REPORT, 'For it will certainly come, and every heart must melt and all hands must drop down and every spirit must become dejected and all knees themselves will drip with water. Look! It will certainly come and be brought to occur,' is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah." -- Ezekiel 21:6, 7

Therefore, in harmony with the powerful judgment messages of the prophets of old, yes, our prophetic message today as shown above, is called
THE "REPORT", and is directed to APOSTATE Modern Day "Israel" of our time, Jehovah's Witnesses worldwide.  Think about it.

Today, our prophetic message has been expressed in book form and has been in existence for more than a decade now. Thus, as a united congregation, the
YORWW Congregation, we endorse and sponsor this written 3-volume dissertation, called THE "REPORT" (copyrighted 1994) which explains our views and belief system in greater detail. In the past, Volume I of this publication has been released in soft cover (6X9 size) and placed in various bookstores around the country and overseas, and has been in circulation since the mid-1990s. This book proved to be the very first publication to publicly identify Jehovah's Witnesses as Modern-Day "Israel" of bible prophecy, as of the year 1931. It further asserts, Jehovah's Witnesses as God's Name People are destined to suffer a great spiritual fall (because of practiced wickedness) and later after being disciplined, would finally be restored to greater favor with God, according to bible prophecy. -- See Jeremiah 33:6-9.


As many are becoming aware, in recent years, since 1991, the same year the YORWW Congregation was born as TWMC ["Two Witnesses Must Come"] Information Center, Jehovah's Witnesses began a course of outright apostasy against God by direct involvement with the UN Organization by voluntarily making an application to become a NGO [Non Governmental Organization] supporter of the United Nations Organization with the Department of Public Information. (Please see letter written by United Nations Department of Public Information about Watchtower Society's Alliance with the United Nations as an NGO for ten (10) years by CLICKING HERE) Because of this heinous act and other transgressions, God's Word indicates the nation will be severely disciplined by God. (See Isaiah 30:26; Jeremiah 23:19, 20; Micah 4:6, 7) Therefore, the purpose of this discussion board originally, was to alert all sincere individuals from their number about the grave and imminent danger facing them as an international people, and to effect possible "repentance" in them before God's Devastating Day of Wrath and Denunciation comes upon them. -- Daniel 7:21; Daniel 8:19; James 5:19, 20; Revelation 13:5-7

The Living Waters Forum (or the YORWW Bible Academy) is a Special 90-Day Online Bible Study Course , which critically examines the unique beliefs, tenets and practices of the Jehovah’s Witnesses in the light of Bible Prophecy.


Thus, in our modern day setting, since the Spring of 1991, the TWMC Information Center/YORWW Congregation has seen itself as a "rescue mission" for all sincere Jehovah's Witnesses, and a special "outreach ministry" for them, encouraging repentance among the nation. We thus became to Jehovah's Witnesses … a lone "voice” crying out “from the wilderness" urging repentance. Which meant, the overall purpose of the LWF discussion board was to specifically help all who were willing and who became aware of the increasing serious problems affecting the organization (United Nations NGO Scandal) and to show them exactly what they must do to become fully pleasing to Almighty God, at this critical juncture in their lives. -- 1 Peter 4:17, 18


-- Isaiah 40:3



JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES IN APOSTASY! Today God's Name People are faced with a very difficult situation, similar to the one faced by ancient Israel of times past. Yes, Jehovah's Witnesses of our modern times are faced with National Apostasy! And, as we recall in times of National Apostasy of the past in Ancient Israel, Jehovah dutifully would without a doubt, "ABANDON" the House of Israel if they proved to be totally unrepentant about this grave sin when brought to their attention. Special National Atonement was necessary in all such cases. -- See Leviticus 4:1-21; Matthew 23:38.

In fact, in all such cases, God's Word indicates that if the nation of Israel would not repent of its wicked ways, JEHOVAH GOD HIMSELF, WOULD BE MOVED TO GO TO THE WILDERNESS, and distance Himself, far away from His Name People and the land of His people!

Deuteronomy 23:14 clearly says,

"For Jehovah your God is walking about
WITHIN YOUR CAMP to deliver you and to abandon your enemies to you; and your camp must prove to be holy, that he may see nothing indecent in you and certainly turn away from accompanying you."

Numbers 35:34 says for our benefit,

"And you must not defile the land in which you are dwelling, in the midst of which I am residing;
for I Jehovah am residing in the midst of the sons of Israel."

And so for these reasons stated above, Jehovah Himself, John the Baptist, as well as all repentant members of the nation of Israel, would have to
LEAVE THE "APOSTATE NATION" OF ISRAEL and humbly be willing to go out into the "wilderness," where appropriately they could receive Divine Instruction from Jehovah, in the wilderness, where God would now reside, far away from His Name People. (John 1:6; Isaiah 10:6) Therefore, anyone from the nation of Israel, who was truly repentant, and who wished to "inquire of Jehovah" from that point on, must be willing to GO TO THE WILDERNESS, since God Himself had left the land, and would no longer agree to be a "resident" or "dweller" in this now "polluted," apostate land of God's Name People. This situation became advisable during the difficult times of the prophet "Elijah" as well as the prophet "John the Baptist," who both took up residence in the "wilderness," away from God's Name People for a specific period of time. -- See 1 Kings 17:2-6; 1 Kings 19:4, 15; Matthew 3:1-6

Ezekiel 20:35-38 prophetically speaks of God's future "judgment" or discipline upon His Name People because of gross wickedness, and their future trek to the "wilderness," where Godly "Judgment" would be carried out upon them. The prophet Ezekiel was told in ancient times about our day,

"And I WILL BRING YOU INTO THE WILDERNESS OF THE PEOPLES and put myself on judgment with you there face to face. Just as I put myself on judgment with your forefathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so I shall put myself on judgment with you, is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah. And I will make you pass under the rod and bring you into the bond of the covenant. And I will clean out from you the revolters and the transgressors against me, for out of the land of their alien residence I shall bring them forth, but onto the soil of Israel they will not come; and you people will have to know that I am Jehovah."

Therefore, simply put, God's Name People of our time, Jehovah's Witnesses, have indeed, "polluted" God's land by wickedly engaging in idolatry, injustice and bloodshed, and thus, are presently in line for the Godly Judgment upon themselves, as shown above. This judgment will manifest itself for the whole world to see, when Jehovah allows his people to be
CHASED TO THE WILDERNESS by the political nations and “trampled” upon for forty-two (42) months. -- Jeremiah 7:4, 8-15; Hosea 2:14-16; Revelation 12:6, 14; Revelation 11:2; Revelation 13:5-7.

In this regard, we remember Jesus himself knew Jehovah would inevitably, "abandon" apostate Jerusalem because of its wickedness, and so never personally risked the chance of being considered unfaithful to Jehovah and thus being himself "abandoned" by God. (John 8:29) Thus we can say, Jesus himself, set the example for us today, to "turn away from the ungodly," when he directed his disciples to LEAVE APOSTATE JERUSALEM. -- See Matthew 23:38; Hebrews 13:13, 14; 2 Timothy 3:5; Revelation 3:12

Isaiah 40:3 says:

"Listen! Someone is calling out in the wilderness: Clear up the way of Jehovah, you people! Make the highway for our God through the desert plain straight."

The "voice" we read of above that comes from the "wilderness" is the voice of God's prophet.

1 Kings 17:2-6 and 1 Kings 19:4, 15 shows the prophet Elijah frequented the "wilderness" in carrying out his assignment against rank apostasy on the part of the nation of Israel, when wicked king Ahab and Jezebel ruled.

In similar fashion, the bible tells us John the Baptist also frequented the "wilderness" since his early childhood. (Luke 1:80). Also, the Holy Scriptures reveal "God's declaration" or word actually occurred to John the Baptist, yes, while he was "in the wilderness." (Luke 3:2) Yes, it reveals John the Baptist frequented the "deserts" and primarily conducted his prophetic ministry OUTSIDE the camp of Israel. But someone may ask: "Why was this the case...why did John The Baptist frequent the desert places, OUTSIDE of the nation of Israel?"

Well, this was largely due to the fact that the nation was now on a "renegade" course, and had become an "apostate nation" before Jehovah and in dire need of "repentance" to be saved. (Isaiah 10:6) It was John's mission to make that known to the nation, from the "wilderness" as his base of operation. -- Proverbs 1:32; Luke 1:76-80

In fact, contrary to what most would normally think, strangely the bible informs us that John specifically did his "preaching" of repentance
, IN THE WILDERNESS itself. Yes, he "preached" while in the wilderness, a message of repentance for the nation itself. The inspired accounts tells us:

"In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, saying repent, for the kingdom of the heavens has drawn near." --
Matthew 3:1, 2

All of this then, tells us that when the nation of Israel was viewed by Jehovah to be in a state of rank apostasy, it was God's Will that John, the prophet become a "voice" that spoke
FROM THE "WILDERNESS" PERSPECTIVE. Interesting "food for thought," wouldn't you say? -- Isaiah 40:3

Mark 1:4, 5 pointedly speaks of John's prophetic ministry OUTSIDE of Israel by saying,

"John the baptizer turned up in the wilderness, preaching baptism [in symbol] of repentance for forgiveness of sins. Consequently all the territory of Judea and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem
MADE THEIR WAY OUT TO HIM, and they were baptized by him in the Jordan River, openly confessing their sins."

So a "voice" that speaks from the "wilderness" point of view, then has to be viewed as coming from a source OUTSIDE of the camp of Israel -- the voice of a prophet of God. Therefore, if God were to raise up a "prophet" then in our day, during times of National Apostasy to warn the people, he would no doubt raise him up from the "wilderness" point of view, thus being seen by the majority of people as being OUTSIDE the camp of Israel or apostate nation. Also, as we might rightly expect, this "voice from the wilderness" would urge "repentance" like John the Baptist did during his day. And yet, we would rightly expect this "prophet" to be seen or perceived by the nation as a whole as a distant "voice", far away from the nation itself. This "voice" would no doubt be generally considered by the religious leaders of that time and general populous, to be an OUTSIDER to the nation of Israel, thereby speaking from a non-acceptable source or point of origin...namely, the "wilderness." Think about it.

We recall Jesus saying at
Luke 19:44,

"and they will dash you and your children within you to the ground, and they will not leave a stone upon a stone in you, because
you did not discern the time of your being inspected."

In the first century, the apostate nation of Israel underwent an "inspection" period from Jehovah God, yes for some 4 years. This special "inspection" period actually started with the extraordinary 6-month ministry of John the Baptist, who was a special "representative" of Jehovah himself, which was immediately followed by the impressive 3 1/2 year ministry of Jesus Christ, the "messenger of the covenant" who also served as a special "representative" of His Father too. -- John 1:6; John 7:29, John 16:27, John 17:8

To be sure God's Word does promise us a future coming of a prophet called "Elijah," a "voice in the wilderness" for
our day and time. In fact, even Jesus spoke of his coming, as being the one that would ultimately "restore all things" before, just before God's Great and Fear-Inspiring Day of Wrath should come upon all mankind. -- See Malachi 4:5, 6; Matthew 17:10, 11


Ezekiel 47:1-12 gives us a beautiful picture of a Special Temple constructed by God, that provides for mankind amazingly, "living, healing waters" of nourishment and refreshment. These verses state in part,

"And he went on to say to me: This water is going forth to the eastern region and must go down through the Arabah. And it must come to the sea. It being brought forth into the sea itself, its water is also actually healed. And it must occur that every living soul that swarms, in every place to which the double-size torrent comes, will get life. And it must occur that there will be very many fish, because there is where this water will certainly come, and the seawater will be healed, and everything will be alive where the torrent comes...And alongside the torrent there will come up, along its bank on this side and on that side, all sorts of trees for food. Their leafage will not wither, nor will their fruitage be consumed. In their months they will bear new fruit, because the water for them -- it is coming forth from the
VERY SANCTUARY. And their fruitage must prove to be for food and their leafage for healing." -- Ezekiel 47:8-12

Now, let's compare
Revelation 22:1, 2 which also says:

"And he showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, flowing out from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of its broad way. And on this side of the river and on that side there were trees of life producing twelve crops of fruit, yielding their fruits each month. And the leaves of the trees were for the curing of the nations."

Did you notice above the great
similarities in both of these biblical descriptions of God's Wondrous Temple Arrangement, that ultimately nourishes mankind and brings forth Godly Blessings to all mankind? Did you notice the striking similarity between these two biblical passages? Yes, the book of Ezekiel and the book of Revelation are really saying the same thing. They are describing the exact same situation, are they not? Yes, both are referring to an Earthly Temple Arrangement from God. Yes, both of these Temple Arrangements, are said to give forth "living, healing waters" from Jehovah, which ultimately provide "curing," yes "healing" for all the nations upon earth. Yes, "Living Waters," that come from God's Sanctuary, upon earth. Did you notice this? To gain more information of this unique concept, let's notice the following.

As you recall and as stated above, in our modern day setting, the YORWW Congregation sees itself as a "rescue mission" for all sincere Jehovah's Witnesses,
current only. Thus, we see the YORWW Congregation as a Special "Arrangement," a Special Sanctuary, a Special Tabernacle or Temple if you will, miraculously found out in the wilderness to provide spiritual nourishment and refreshment for all repentant members of Israel today, that seek refuge. It becomes a Special "Tabernacle" of God provided for these most difficult times. -- 1 Corinthians 14:40; Matthew 11:28, 29

In this regard, it becomes like
Leviticus 26:11, 12 says,

"And I shall certainly put
MY TABERNACLE in the midst of you, and my soul will not abhor you. And I SHALL INDEED WALK IN THE MIDST OF YOU AND PROVE MYSELF YOUR GOD, and you, on your part, will prove yourselves my people."

Therefore in this instance, the YORWW Congregation thus becomes God's True "Tabernacle" for God's Name People, in the wilderness. It becomes the place that Jehovah truly resides. The YORWW becomes the place where Jehovah would indeed actually "WALK IN THE MIDST OF YOU," and "PROVE" Himself to be their "God" just as promised above.

Ezekiel 37:26, 27 speaks of this unique situation this way,

"And I will conclude with them a covenant of peace; and indefinitely lasting covenant is what they will come to be with them. And I will place them and multiply them and PLACE MY SANCTUARY in the midst of them to time indefinite. And MY TABERNACLE will actually prove to be over them, and I shall certainly become their God, and they themselves will become my people."

Remarkably as noted above, we now realize these original promises made by Jehovah under the Mosaic Law Arrangement, are almost identical to the one made in the book of Revelation where it says,

"With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: "Look!
The TENT [Tabernacle, Sanctuary] of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them." -- Revelation 21:3

Yes, the YORWW Arrangement thus becomes the true realization of God's Kingdom upon earth. Yes, the YORWW Congregation truly becomes God's "Tent," His "Sanctuary" or His True “Temple” upon earth, where "living, healing waters" would flow for the full benefit of all mankind, earth wide to fulfill His
Original Promise to Abraham. (Ezekiel 47:1-12; Matthew 6:10) Indeed, the newly formed YORWW Congregation, which was formed in the “wilderness” as shown above, will fulfill all such prophecies to the full glorification of God’s Great Name. (Ezekiel 17:22-24) And all of this, will be in fulfillment of this most wonderful Grand Promise, originally given in the Garden of Eden at Genesis 3:15, to produce a “seed” which would lead all mankind into righteousness. Yes, we recall Jehovah again reiterated His Grand Promise to Abraham, His trusted “friend,” at Genesis 22:18, where God Himself guaranteed one day, yes, "ALL NATIONS" … and that’s all nations, would finally be blessed by way of his coming “seed.” Yes, we recall Almighty God Himself promised Abraham:

"And by means of your seed ALL NATIONS OF THE EARTH will certainly bless themselves due to the fact that you have listened to my voice." -- Genesis 22:18

Think about it.
