0 SAB When will Armageddon occur?

Some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. 2 Peter 3:16

When will Armageddon occur?

And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. Genesis 2:22

Jehovah's Witnesses: Soon, but it's been delayed a bit

Jehovah ends his sixth day of creation by fashioning Eve from Adam's rib. The seventh day of creation began in 4026 BCE and will last 7,000 years. Armageddon will occur in "the autumn of 1975, fully 6000 years into God's seventh day, his rest day." (April 1, 1968, Watchtower)

It should be noted that JWs deny that the Governing Body ever taught that Armageddon would happen in 1975. But they are just employing the Theocratic War Strategy (otherwise known as lying). Here is what the Watchtower said in "Making Wise Use of the Remaining Time" from the same April 5, 1968 Watchtower: "Within a few years at most the final parts of Bible prophecy relative to these "last days" will undergo fulfillment, resulting in he liberation of surviving mankind into Christ's glorious 1,000-year reign."

But it seems the Watchtower has a new date: 2005! (Okay, I guess that one wasn't right either.)
