5 Notable Failed End Times Prophecies

Watchtower Society – 1925


The Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society President J.F. Rutherford, whose organization oversees the Jehovah's Witnesses, predicted that 1925 would mark the end of the world.

Rutherford predicted in 1918 that "we may expect 1925 to witness the return of" Old Testament figures including Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob "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."

"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," said Rutherford.

1925 was one of many dates that Jehovah's Witnesses leaders put forth as possible years for end times events like the beginning of the end times and the Second Coming of Christ.
