Late in the summer of 1923 God's holy spirits contacted
Pastor Greber. They revealed great truths to him and approximately two and one-half years
later he was given permanent leave from the church to take care of his relief organisation
(Hilfsbund). He continued in his capacity as a leader in the self-help organisation
until 1929, when he emigrated to the United states. Here he received additional proof that
what he had been told in Germany was God's truth.
He started a number
of prayer groups in and around New York City. In his spare time he started to work on his
book 'Communication with the Spirit World'. Later he translated the New Testament
with the help of God's spirit world.
The task was not simple. many contradictions between what appears in ancient
scrolls and the New Testament, as we have grown to know it, arose and were subject of his
constsnt prayers for guidance - prayers that were answered, and the discrepencies
clarified to him.
At times he was given the correct answers in large illuminated letters and
words passing before his eyes. Other times he was given the correct answers in during
prayer meetings. His wife, a medium of God's spirit world, was often instrumental in
conveying the correct answers from God's messengers to Pastor Greber.
The Watchtower quotes Johannes Greber in support of their
Charles Taze Russell was a freemason. He used the red cross and
other distinctive features of the Knights Templar logo. He also used the Masonic symbol of
the winged sun disk with snakes, and he is buried in a pyramid
with masonic symbols on its capstone

The winged disk or winged solar disk is a symbol of
the sky god and was originally used for magic
This symbol originated in ancient Egypt, where it was the
quintessential symbol representing Horus the sun god. The winged disk was used throughout
the centuries to represent the supreme god of other pagan cults and societies. It was the
symbol for the baal god during Jezebel's reign, as well as the god of the Zoroastrian
cult, founded by Zoraster, the Persian religious prophet.
The symbol is used by 33rd degree Masonry. Charles Taze
Russell was a Mason and he wanted the winged disk put on all his covers (which were later
removed by Joseph Rutherford)
