Why did Jesus place the key to the house of David, upon the jehovah's witnesses leaders' shoulders. in 1919?

Watchtower 1/15/2009 pg. 31 paragraph 2 "When did Jesus receive “the key of David,” and how has he been using that key? Upon his baptism in 29 C.E., Jesus became King-Designate in the line of David. However, Jesus did not receive the key of David until 33 C.E. when he was exalted to the right hand of God in heaven. There he inherited all the rights of the Davidic Kingdom. Since then, Jesus has been using the key to open up opportunities and privileges related to the Kingdom. In 1919, Jesus placed “the key of the house of David” upon the shoulder of “the faithful and discreet slave” by appointing that slave class “over all his belongings.” The jw leaders call themselves the faithful and discreet slave.

    Jesus founded his Church via Peter.  Matthew 16 where Jesus makes things crystal clear: “You are Peter (petros in Greek, meaning rock) and upon this rock I will build my church and the powers of death will not prevail against it.”

    Pretty clear, Peter was the first apostle.

    Jehovah's Witnesses are an Arian based cult and  not even christian.


    Good morning sunshine I hope you are having a super day!!!!

    The ONLY key JWs need to worry about is the key to their mind, which is fully in control of JWorg!
