1925 - Resurrection of Abraham, David and Moses

After abandoning their 1878 date the Watchtower put forward a new date for the earthly resurrection of the faithful men of old.  So sure were they that the Watchtower built the mansion, Beth-Sarim in San Diego so that when the likes of Abraham and Moses were resurrected they had a place to stay.  I wonder what they would have made of the Chauffeur driven Cadillacs.

beth1 

The main resident of the mansion was the president of the Watchtower, J. F. Rutherford, when Rutherford died the Watchtower immediately sold Beth-Sarim and the 1925 prophecy was dropped

How did the Watchtower arrive at the date 1925, simple, they added 3,500 years to 1,575 B.C.E. which is when the jubilee type began.  It is interesting to note that the Watchtower were even more sure about the the date 1925 than they were 1914.

See below what the Watchtower were saying about 1925 and the events that would take place

The Watchtower. May 15, 1922

We have no doubt whatever in regard to the chronology relating to the dates of .. 1925.. What further evidence do we need? Using this same measuring line .. it is an easy matter to locate 1925, probably in the fall, for the beginning of the anti typical jubilee. There can be no more question about 1925 than there was about 1914.

[Emphasis added]

Watchtower. 1922 November 1

We understand that the jubilee type began to count in 1575 B.C.; and the 3,500 year period embracing the type must end in 1925.. It follows, then, that the year 1925 will mark the beginning of the restoration of all things lost by Adam's disobedience.

[Emphasis added]

Golden Age, February 13, 1924

We cannot be blamed for presenting from the Scriptures such evidence as they afford which leads us to believe that a certain event will take place at a given time. Some times the Lord has let His people looking for the right thing at the wrong time, and more frequently they have looked for the wrong things at the right time. But all the enemies of the cause of present truth in the earth are fervently hoping that the Bible students will not be so successful in 1925 in looking for the right thing at the right time as they were in 1914. if they are, however, it will be the other fellow that will have to do the explaining, and not we.

[Emphasis added]

 Millions Now Living Will Never Die, 1925  p110

.. about April 1, 1925, at which time we may expect the resurrection of the Ancient Worthies ..

[Emphasis added]

Salvation p311

At San Diego, California, there is a small piece of land, on which, in the year 1929 there was built a house, which is called and known as Beth Sarim. The Hebrew words Beth Sarim mean 'House of the Princes'; and the purpose of acquiring that property and building the house was that there are those on earth today who fully believe in God and Christ Jesus and in His Kingdom, and who believe that the faithful men of old will soon be resurrected by the Lord, be back on earth, and take charge of the visible affairs of earth. The title to Beth Sarim is vested in the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society in trust, to be used by the president of the Society and his assistants for the present, and thereafter to be forever at the disposal of the aforementioned princes on the earth .. It stands there as a testimony to Jehovah's name; and when the princes do return, and some of them occupy the property, such will be a confirmation of the faith and hope that induced the building of Beth Sarim.

[Emphasis Added]

The Finished Mystery 1917 p 569

This vision of the prophet Ezekiel depicts the established theocratic Kingdom of God on earth, civil and religious, spiritual and earthly .. The Temple .. is a type and symbol of 'better things to come', after the wars, revolutions and anarchy of the period from 1914 to 1925 have passed.

[Emphasis added]

The Finished Mystery 1926 p 569

This vision of the prophet Ezekiel depicts the established theocratic Kingdom of God on earth, civil and religious, spiritual and earthly .. The Temple .. is a type and symbol of 'better things to come', after the wars, revolutions and anarchy of the timeof trouble have passed.

[Emphasis added]

Watchtower 1922 September 1

The date 1925 is even more distinctly indicated by the Scriptures than 1914.

[Emphasis Added]

 Watchtower 1923 April 1

Our thought is, that 1925 is definitely settled by the Scriptures. As to Noah, the Christian now has much more upon which to base his faith than Noah had upon which to base his faith in a coming deluge.

[Emphasis Added]

The Way To Paradise (book) 1924 p.228

[By 1925] You will have secured the services of the best decorators you can find. Some of them used to be undertakers; but since there are no more people dying, they have had to seek some new occupation. Their experience as undertakers prepared them to become decorators with very little difficulty.

[Emphasis Added]

 Watchtower 1925 January 1

The year 1925 is here. With great expectation Christians have looked forward to this year. Many have confidently expected that all members of the body of Christ will be changed to heavenly glory during this year. This may be accomplished. It may not be. In his own due time God will accomplish his purposes concerning his people. Christians should not be so deeply concerned about what may transpire this year.

[Emphasis Added]

Watchtower 1925 Feb 15 pp.54-6

The number ten is often used in the Scriptures, and apparently there is some peculiar significance attached to it…The same is doubtless true in regard to ten years. Ten years from 1914 is 1924. If the Jews were in their homeland we would have expected the blowing of the typical jubilee trumpets to begin about October 1st, 1924, announcing the year 1925 as the jubilee…Bible Students know that the number seven often has peculiar significance in the Scriptures. Note the many times it is used in Revelation and in connection with the jubilee. It will be remembered by all associated with the work in 1916 that trouble began almost immediately following Brother Russell's death. However, it was not until the Seventh Volume came out that the trouble culminated. It was on the seventeenth of July, 1917, that "The Finished Mystery" was distributed to the Bethel family, and it was on that day that trouble at Bethel came to a head, and continued until many who had been very active in the service for years withdrew from further activities in connection with the Society. July 17th, 1917, was therefore a marked date…

[Emphasis Added]

Awake! 1995 June 22 p.9 Can You Trust God's Promises?

Bible Students, known since 1931 as Jehovah's Witnesses, also expected that the year 1925 would see the fulfillment of marvelous Bible prophecies. They surmised that at that time the earthly resurrection would begin, bringing back faithful men of old, such as Abraham, David, and Daniel. More recently, many Witnesses conjectured that events associated with the beginning of Christ's Millennial Reign might start to take place in 1975. Their anticipation was based on the understanding that the seventh millennium of human history would begin then.

These erroneous views did not mean that God's promises were wrong, that he had made a mistake. By no means! The mistakes or misconceptions, as in the case of first-century Christians, were due to a failure to heed Jesus' caution, 'You do not know the time.' The wrong conclusions were due, not to malice or to unfaithfulness to Christ, but to a fervent desire to realize the fulfillment of God's promises in their own time.

[Emphasis Added]

Millions Now Living Will Never Die, 1925 p. 88-90

The chief thing to be restored is the human race to life; and since other Scriptures definitely fix the fact that there will be a resurrection of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and other faithful ones of old, and that these will have the first favor, we may expect 1925 to witness the return of these faithful men of Israel from the condition of death, being resurrected and fully restored to perfect humanity and made the visible, legal representatives of the new order of things on earth.. They are to be resurrected as perfect men and constitute the princes or rulers in the earth .. Therefore we may confidently expect that 1925 will mark the return of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the faithful prophets of old, particularly those named by the Apostle in Hebrews 11, to the condition of human perfection.. A simple calculation of these jubilees brings us to this important fact: Seventy jubilees of fifty years each would be a total of 3500 years. That period of time beginning 1575 years before A.D. 1 of necessity would end in the fall of 1925, at which time the type ends and the great anti type must begin. What, then, should we expect to take palace? In the type there must be a full restoration; beginning of restoration of all things.
