The deadly Coronavirus, like the Spanish Influenza, is currently spreading like a wild fire around the world and is taking tolls on lives of people on its path. This deadly disease might sound strange and new to many, including even health care providers and experts, but, actually, Jehovah’s Witnesses, a religious group, had sounded a warning of its emergence 15 years ago, in one of its magazines, Awake!

Writing on the subject “The Next Global Epidemic, WHEN?” the December 22, 2005, edition of Awake! did not only raise the alarm that a pandemic virus might emerge in China or a nearby country, it also warned that it might emanate from an animal and could surface from antigens or virulence factors derived from animal influenza viruses.

Photos of the front and inner pages of the Awake! magazine has since gone viral.

OMG r u for real?

So they guessed some virus from an animal was gonna happened in China!

Why didnt they predicted the AIDS, Ebola, black plague, SARs swine flu.

And we should ignore all the false predictions of 1874,1914,1919,1925,1975,2014....2033!

"According to many experts"?

What does THAT mean?

WHO in particular?

What are they experts OF?
 

What exactly makes these anonymous people experts?

The "People of the World" were what? .... about 7 Billion back in 2005?

How many copies of the Awake! actually got into the hands of 7 billion people, who ACTUALLY READ THEM, and even then ... WHAT COULD THEY HAVE DONE ABOUT IT??

.... my guess is nothing whatsoever.

It's like me ... if I heard that Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles, carrying 100 megaton yield Hydrogen Bombs MIGHT hit my home town someday in the future, as we have been 70 years and more since the World was engaged in an atomic (albeit one sided) war.

What could I do about it?

NOTHING !!!!

Disregarding the publications TOTAL lack of credibility in foreseeing the future, even a blind pig, once in a great while, will find SOMETHING to eat..

So, JJJ.... um ... what was predicted in 2014 that did not happen, and what is SUPPOSED to happen that "we" predicted to happen in 2033?

I musta been asleep about those two.

👇 WT links the 120 yrs of noahs day to our day so since 1914 and 90 yrs has passed already so there is only 30 years left so they are giving the suggestion that 2034 might be the one finally get right 😆😆😆

Witnesses did not predict anything.

Bearing in mind that the name Witnesses has the general meaning that they are people - members belonging to one religious community, then it is true that they do not prophesy, maybe just assume, predict, expect.

predict: to say that an event or action will happen in the future, especially as a result of knowledge or experience

    Hello guest!

 But, it is interesting, on what basics WTJWorg, who gathering members - Witnesses, do collect and multiple knowledge  that make them to be "sure" and bold to assume, predict, expect and interprete Bible verses and world events? Do they (WT GB and Helpers) doing that in similar way as Jethro Ibileke did when made comment about Awake magazine? Will they repeat errors? Our experience says: Yes. :)
