Why did the Jehovah's Witnesses name their organization Watchtower??? Can there be something more to it?

The Watchtowers. It was believed that angels ruled a certain compass direction and they lived in the ends of the earth (more like the ends of the universe). These angels are to record every event that occurs in the world.
WATCHTOWERS, GUARDIANS OF: 1) A term used to describe the Elementals who are Energy Forms, Raiths or Spirits of the 4 Elements. 2) Originally used in the Enochian Tradition of Ceremonial Magick but whose usage is now widespread. 3) Those Entities connected to the Elements & Directions & certain attributes as follows:
North Air thought & intellect Male yellow
East Earth stable, solid, dependable Female green…
South Fire change, passion, willpower Male red…..
West Water emotions & purification Female blue….
Center Spirit intuitiveness unisexed soul
They are both visible & physical and invisible & spiritual. They are invoked during ritual as protectors of our Circle of Power & sometimes as advisors. Some ‘set’ these Guardians, during rituals in a more complex exercise than simply invoking the Elements.
three phrases of terminology that are popular with Enochian Magic, and the Freemasons are “Millennial Dawn”, “Golden Age” and “Watchtower.” Russell named his organization Watchtower Bible and Tract Society. His earlier magazine was called The Golden Age. Before the name of Jehovah’s Witnesses was established the followers of Russell’s teachings were known as Russellites and Millennial Dawnist. Not a chance this is coincidence.
Edit Also who preceeded who, was it the Masons before the Jehovah’s Witnesses or the Jehovah’s Witnesses before the Masons?


  1. Boy, I don’t know who or where you got the above garbage from, but it has NOTHING to do with Jehovah’s Witnesses.
    Russell was dead BEFORE the magizine Golden Age was published.
    Look to Isaiah
    Isa 21:5 Prepare the table, watch in the watchtower, eat, drink: arise, ye princes, [and] anoint the shield.
    Isa 21:6 For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth.
    Isa 21:7 And he saw a chariot [with] a couple of horsemen, a chariot of asses, [and] a chariot of camels; and he hearkened diligently with much heed:
    Isa 21:8 And he cried, A lion: My lord, I stand continually upon the watchtower in the daytime, and I am set in my ward whole nights:
    Isa 21:9 And, behold, here cometh a chariot of men, [with] a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground.
    Isa 21:10 O my threshing, and the corn of my floor: that which I have heard of the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, have I declared unto you.
    Isa 21:11 The burden of Dumah. He calleth to me out of Seir, Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?
    Isa 21:12 The watchman said, The morning cometh, and also the night: if ye will enquire, enquire ye: return, come.
    The Watchtower is a reference to those standing guard, listening for the advance of the enemy. All anicent armies and cities had them, Jerusalem as well.
    The name was chosen to signify our following God’s orders to be on the watch, to protect his people, and give advance warning.

  2. If you look at history you will see that the founder of the sect called Jehovah’s Witnesses was a mason and was into the occult so it was just a progression from that and so now we see many new ideas coming into this group and all called new light or progression.
    Their history is covered in masonry and acultic stuff and if one does not bbelievethen all they need to do is to visit the site were Mr russell is buried to see

    • Charles Taze Russell did not believe in an organization such as the Jehovah’s Witnesses, nor did he believe in the Gospel (good news) of bad tidings for most of earth’s inhabitants that the JWs preach. He was certainly not the founder of an organization that he did not believe in. Russell was certainly not a member of the Freemasons’ organization either, nor was he into anything of demonic occultism. There is nothing at the site where Russell is buried that has anything to do with the Masons or the the Occult.

  3. I think they wanted to separate themselves from the Bible students of the Russell’s time..however, the Russell’s group was the group Jesus allegedly chose to be the only true God’s organization ( 1918-1919 )when Jesus inspected all the religions
    They were not keeping a good watch about Jesus second coming, it had slipped from them couple of times! Current teaching of Jesus’ invisible return year is 1914!

  4. probably they are watching to see how many more people they can get to join their cult. I hear that once you join, it is hard to get out.

  5. Funny Funny stuff.
    Watchtowers are mentioned quite often in the Bible.
    The word The is mentioned in MANY pagan books, and in the Bible, however use of the word The doesn’t constitute following Pagan beliefs.
    The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society is simply a Printing organization.
    I am a Christian, one of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

  6. Well, My solution is, they have a big tower in bethal or a building, they watch from it so no one is coming to disrupt the drunkeness and orgies in there building.

    The publication was started by Charles Taze Russell on July 1, 1879 under the title
    Zion’s Watch Tower and Herald of Christ’s Presence. The first issue stated as its prospectus:
    This is the first number of the first volume of “ZION’S WATCH TOWER” and it may not be amiss to state the object of its publication. That we are living “in the last days” “the day of the Lord” – “the end” of the Gospel age, and consequently, in the dawn of the “new” age, are facts not only discernible by the close student of the Word, led by the spirit, but the outward signs recognizable by the world bear the same testimony, and we are desirous that the “household of faith” be fully awake to the fact, that–
    We are living, we are dwelling
    In a grand and awful time;
    In an age on ages telling
    To be living is sublime.
    In 1909 the name was changed to The Watch Tower and Herald of Christ’s Presence. In 1920, the Watchtower Society reprinted all the issues from 1879—1919 in seven volumes, known as the Watchtower Reprints, which has itself been reprinted through the years by other groups. Later, in March 1939, the magazine was renamed The Watchtower and Herald of Christ’s Presence,[3] and, from March 1940 until the present, its full name has been The Watchtower Announcing Jehovah’s Kingdom.

  8. you have weird ideas, amigo.
    a watchtower is a tower from which to see what is coming on a horizon.
    your weak ‘it was believed …’ thing. WHO believed it? do you have a reference?
    back in the 1800′ s the term ‘golden age’ was used to refer to the future, as in things are only going to get better.
    i have a few CD’s from the ‘ golden age’ of radio.
    as far as russellites, that is the same as ‘lutherans’ followers of luther, and mennonites, followers of menno, roman catholics, followers of rome [universal followers, no less].
    no one was presenting JEHOVAH as the god of the universe, or representing him here on earth. so, instead of being considered just ‘bible students’ [ernste Bibelforscher] we accepted the call of the creator, through his son, the faithful and true witness, to become JEHOVAH’S CHRISTIAN WITNESSES.
    and our organization is known as the christian congregation of Jehovah’s witnesses.
    the watchtower is a shortened term for the publishing corporations.
    both being, of course, 501(c)3 nonprofit entities.
    you have a lot of errors in your surmising who we are and what we believe.
    you need a bible study. we can show you what we believe, and that it is totally biblical.
