Growth of Organization

 

Watchtower July 1, 2002, p.13, paragraph 17-19

Now is the time for Jehovah to express mercy to his anointed servants and their other sheep companions.

 The evidence that this is so is the extraordinary increase with which he has blessed them

18. Each year, hundreds of thousands of additional "foreigners" associate with Jehovah's organisation, and the way will remain open for many more to follow them. Jehovah says to Zion: "Your gates will actually be kept open constantly; they will not be closed even by day or by night, in order to bring to you the resources of the nations, and their kings will be taking the lead" (Isaiah 60:11) Some opposers try to close those 'gates,' but we know that they cannot succeed.

 Jehovah himself has said that one way or another, the gates will stay open. The increase will continue.

19. There are still other ways that Jehovah has blessed his people, making them beautiful in these last days.

[Emphasis Added]

Examining the Scriptures Daily, May 19th, 2002

Of course, the number of those associated with Jehovah's Witnesses is not a criterion for determining if they enjoy divine favor.

[Emphasis Added]



  Please find below comparison of the Watchtower’s 2004 reported activity against 2005 reported activity.

You will note that circa 147,000 left the organization in 2005 and 377,000 less people turned up for the Memorial attendance.  The overall growth for 2005 was 1.55 Percent. Also of note Spain, Germany, Portugal and Chile all showed a reduction in members.
