Jeremiah 3:15,16 “And I will give you shepherds after my own heart, and they will feed you with knowledge and insight. You will become many and will bear fruit in the land in those days,” declares Jehovah.”

 

We share in their joy at receiving this weighty privilege, and they can count on our loyal support.

This is a good reminder that we can't make predictions based on the age of the GB. We never know when there will be new ones..:lol1:

 

Besides that, we already know the anointed aren't going to die of old age.  The last ones will be taken up.

And does anyone know the ages of these 2 Governing Body Members? And if they would considered to be of the 2nd GROUP, of the Anointed ones, who make up "This Generation"??? Because as we've already learned with Bro. David Splane, there could be some brothers and sisters who Jehovah decided to be Anointed, but they just were NOT part of the 2nd group of Anointed Ones, who make up "THIS GENERATION".

Br. Splane had a talk (video) with a chart showing how the 1st and 2nd half of the "generation" overlapped.  Here is an excerpt from the later Watchtower.

 

*** w14 1/15 p. 31 pars. 15-16 “Let Your Kingdom Come”—But When? ***
15 In his detailed prophecy about the conclusion of this system of things, Jesus said: “This generation will by no means pass away until all these things happen.” (Read Matthew 24:33-35.) We understand that in mentioning “this generation,” Jesus was referring to two groups of anointed Christians. The first group was on hand in 1914, and they readily discerned the sign of Christ’s presence in that year. Those who made up this group were not merely alive in 1914, but they were spirit-anointed as sons of God in or before that year.—Rom. 8:14-17.

 

16 The second group included in “this generation” are anointed contemporaries of the first group. They were not simply alive during the lifetime of those in the first group, but they were anointed with holy spirit during the time that those of the first group were still on earth. Thus, not every anointed person today is included in “this generation” of whom Jesus spoke. Today, those in this second group are themselves advancing in years. Yet, Jesus’ words at Matthew 24:34 give us confidence that at least some of “this generation will by no means pass away” before seeing the start of the great tribulation. This should add to our conviction that little time remains before the King of God’s Kingdom acts to destroy the wicked and usher in a righteous new world.—2 Pet. 3:13.

 

 

EDIT: here is a copy of the chart he used.
