The "REPORT" Book

(Author's Biography)

He pictures the “Ark of the Covenant”




















Donald was born (February 18th, 1953) in Bessemer, Alabama but grew up in Tallahassee, Florida where his family moved in 1955 when he was 2 years old. At a young age, he became quite familiar with the teachings of Jehovah's Witnesses as his parents, Robert Earl Burney (1915 - 1992) and James Ennis Wynn (1916 - 2010), had been loyal Jehovah's Witnesses since 1948. They dutifully taught this religion to their 7 children, 3 daughters and 4 sons, from which Donald, being the youngest member in the family, benefited greatly.

Donald progressed through elementary school (John G. Riley), Junior High (Griffin, FAMU Jr. High), High School (Amos P. Godby) from which he graduated in 1971. He then attended a Technical College (Lewis Lively) completing a 1-year course in Graphic Arts in 1972.


Donald (or "Don" as he was commonly called) began to be fascinated with the teachings of the Bible and those of Jehovah's Witnesses in early adolescence. As a youth, he always had many, many questions about the Bible and what it actually taught. Most adults who knew him at that time observed that he continually asked question after question of them during "field service" [the public ministry of Jehovah's Witnesses] and in private conversations with leading members of the faith, when he came in contact with them. As the years passed, he continued to progress in his knowledge of Holy Scripture and decided to become a dedicated, baptized member of the Griffin Heights Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses on May 18, 1968. He was 15 years old at that time and was in the 9th year of his schooling. Little did he realize that this particular action would prove monumental in his lifelong search for Divine Truth.

Beginning in the year of
1972, when he was 19 years old, he began to ponder the world scene and the things that were happening around him. He begins to give serious consideration to life itself and what seemed to be its many unanswered questions and follies. He began to wonder if any among mankind possessed the answers to the problems of life. Donald felt that the Jehovah's Witnesses did have some answers, but not as many as they lay claim to or believed they had. It appeared to him, regrettably, that they were under some form of self-delusion that they had inflicted upon themselves. And so, for this and other troubling reasons and concerns found within this faith that he had known “from infancy,” Donald began a very intense and serious study of the scriptures. (2 Timothy 3:15) He made a close comparison and analysis of the ways and teachings of the Jehovah's Witnesses religion in the light of what the bible actually taught. Happily, this search and quest to find Divine Truth continues even down to this very day, over 44 years from the date of his baptism in 1968.

Because he made such rapid progress within the organization, in
1973 the elders approached him about becoming a "Ministerial Servant" [Greek: Diakonos, Deacon] in the congregation, and this when he was 20 years old. He, of course, accepted this new challenge. Thus for most of the years since 1973 and up to his official departure from the faith on May 1, 1991, Donald served in some official capacity of leadership within some 8 congregations located in 3 different states.

During this time, Donald often engaged in the Full-time Service as Jehovah's Witnesses call it, spending the majority of his time teaching the bible to those who were interested in learning about the teachings and practices of Jehovah's Witnesses. He also took advantage of the opportunity to serve "where the need was greater," that is, doing voluntary missionary or bible teaching work in areas where the congregations of Jehovah's Witnesses were small and in need of help to carry out their preaching assignment. In two of these congregations that he was helping, Donald was asked to serve as the Presiding Overseer.

His first appointment as "Elder" came in
April 1978 when he was only 25 years of age. During this same year, in the fall, while serving in the congregation located in Monroeville, Alabama, he was asked to be the Presiding Overseer. Some years later, while serving in a small congregation in Hazlehurst, Georgia, he was asked to become its Presiding Overseer. This was in September 1985, when he was 32 years of age. During most of these years, Donald also served as a "Regular Pioneer," teaching God's Word to many within the respective communities of each congregation that he served. These were all privileges that, even to this date, he cherishes as grand privileges from Jehovah God.

Then, in
1990, Donald began to notice serious discrepancies within the taught doctrine of the Jehovah's Witness Faith. He also began to observe serious inconsistencies between what the leadership practiced and what they taught the rank and file. With all of his years of association with this organization, he was all too familiar with the dogmatic beliefs and viewpoints of the leadership, both at the local level and among those who headed this organization. He, therefore, made the weighty decision to leave the Jehovah's Witnesses Faith and Organization in May 1991, as he could not continue in good conscience to teach or preach information he knew was not correct nor was pure truth in God's sight. It was also during this time, along with a few relatives and friends who left the faith around the same time and for similar reasons as he did, that Donald began to compile a written record of the false doctrines being taught by the leading teachers of the Jehovah's Witnesses. He has, down to this day, continued this exposé and this material has been compiled in a series of publications known by many as: The "Report" Book Series.

We today, are fast approaching our Twenty-Fifth (25th) Anniversary from the time we started what’s currently known as the Y.O.R.W.W. Congregation, a name that means “Yah Our Righteousness World Wide.” (Jeremiah 33:16) This group started in the spring of 1991, with the formation of 16-members, all Ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses themselves, all gathered together for the exact same purpose, namely to serve Jehovah God, in “spirit and truth,” away from the APOSTASY brewing among the kingdom halls of Jehovah’s Witnesses, as Jesus recommended and exemplified in his life. -- See John 4:23, 24; Hebrews 13:13, 14.


Even though, we are no longer officially a part of the organization known as Jehovah's Witnesses per say, we at the Y.O.R.W.W. Congregation continue to serve still as "representatives" and servants of Jehovah, hence as God's Name People...God's replacement of modern-day "apostate" Israel of our time. (See Isaiah 10:6; Matthew 21:43; John 1:6.) And as you know, the blessing of carrying God's Name is inherent to all those who "love His Name," as spiritual "Israel." So no one, in our opinion, can take that privilege and honor away from us. Indeed, no one on earth, OWNS God's Great Name, I'm sure you would agree. Therefore, we at YORWW Congregation feel we have every "right" to be considered a people, "called by His Name" due to the many, many years of faithful service to our heavenly Creator, prior to leaving the Jehovah's Witnesses organization. In other words, our work was not in vain in the eyes of our Creator, while we labored at the kingdom halls of Jehovah's Witnesses. That's how we see the matter. So then we believe, our service to Jehovah never stopped, by joining the YORWW Congregation, even though many of us had formerly left the organization that bears God's Name for many years now. -- Numbers 6:27; Deuteronomy. 28:10; 2 Chronicles 7:14; Daniel 9:19; Acts 15:14-17; Hebrews 6:10; Hebrews 13:15; Revelation 14:1

Many have wondered how we, as a united congregation, over the years found ways to spread our unique message to God's Name People, Jehovah's Witnesses, who are spread out in over
100,000 congregations worldwide. And this question becomes especially pertinent when we consider it is widely known Jehovah's Witnesses per say, will not talk with anyone they deem to be a "breakaway" group, a "break-off" religion, sect or apostate "group" that has left them. They have the same viewpoint on such things, as Ancient Israel had about first century "Christians" who with God's Divine Help, were able to "go out from it" [the temple] and truly "escape" it, namely the "temple" that originally carried His Name. -- Acts 21:21; Revelation 3:12

So then, this is a very interesting question, and one that we have pondered greatly, as to how best to accomplish such a mission. You see, we've been around for over
20 years, that is since the spring of 1991, actually spreading this message in many different ways.

The “REPORT” Book Itself ...

First I decided to write a book, called
"The Report" Volume I. This took years to put together, and even now, myself and those few who assist me, are still "refining" our message, so that it will be ever more distinct and clear to the listener, in fulfillment of Habakkuk 2:2. The book was copyrighted and authored by myself, Donald C. Burney, the person who claims to be the "Chieftain" or "High Priest" within the spiritual Temple we believe, Jehovah God inhabits today. (Ezekiel 44:1-3) We see this "Temple" as being one in the same with glorious "temple" spoken of in the book of Revelation 22nd chapter, namely:

New Jerusalem On Earth!

In other words, we believe "New Jerusalem," God's Glorious Heavenly Government, spoken of in symbolic language in the book of Revelation, to be yes, an Earthly Governmental Arrangement.

(For more details on "New Jerusalem" being an
earthly governmental arrangement, See Link: Jerusalem First Disciplined, Then Praised)

Therefore, in this spiritual "Temple," we believe, spiritual "waters", healing waters are flowing from this "Temple", and ever since, the year of 1991, when we began to collect this most unusual information [Greek:
mysterions, or "mysteries" of God, God's "sacred secrets"] from God's Own Mouth. This is what we sincerely believe. We believe these spiritual "waters" in the form of "accurate knowledge" [Greek: ep ig nosis] or "super" [epi] "knowledge" [gnosis] will one day very soon, because they actually come from God Almighty Himself, and work as a healing agent from Him for His Name People. Yes, the "knowledge of God," as the prophet of old said, will eventually "cover the earth as the waters cover the very sea," wherein finally, much to Satan's chagrin, "many will rove about and the true knowledge of God, will become abundant" by God's Own Mighty Hand. No, nothing can stop this most important work, in behalf of God's Name People, and on behalf of the whole world itself. -- Isaiah 11:9; Ezekiel 47:1-12; Daniel 12:4

"The Report," the book itself, we decided back in 1995 to place on the bookshelves of various bookstores, hoping the brothers would come out to these locations, actual places of business, AND IN TOTAL SECRECY purchase it, read it, and hopefully study it in hopes that this "knowledge" would move them to action. But even if it did not, at least we felt, the brothers would be alerted to the insidious environment and situation that they were in, unwittingly. Therefore, after much labor, we finally managed to get a "book-deal." Finally, we had a special deal with "Books-A-Million" and "Bookland" Stores who agreed to carry it regionally, thru out over some 150 stores from Washington D.C. to Miami, Florida, and as far west as the Missouri border. (A feat that is practically unheard of by a new book release on almost any topic, let alone Jehovah's Witnesses, and for a new publishing agency.) After we secured that situation, no doubt with the help of Jehovah, we then begin to use key newspaper articles to promote it, especially in cities where we could let the people know about the book, and especially where key bookstores carried it, in various cities in the U.S., particularly up and down the east coast of the U.S.

In addition to this, for several years, we had a website (before this one), called, that promoted the book, and also reached many of our brothers, in many different lands and parts of the world -- over 50 countries in fact. At this website, information was made available so that brothers could SECRETLY visit our website and download articles pertaining to our distinct message about the Watchtower Society being Babylon The Great, and Jehovah's Witnesses being God's Name People, modern day "Israel" of bible prophecy. Also we admonished all that a certain "42 months" of trampling (as the Great Tribulation) was to come upon Jehovah's Witnesses, specifically as needing severe discipline from God's Own Hand, in the very near future...because of the many Watchtower Society-related sins for the nation. -- Isaiah 30:26; Jeremiah 23:19, 20; Revelation 13:5-7

And we used the internet to contact as many as possible...for the last few years, starting in 1993. I personally, decided to join CompuServe around that time and maintain a membership there. While there, I personally "witnessed" to many on the "Jehovah's Witnesses" section back then. Also, some of us were on AOL [America Online] back then, and on other various web networks doing the same thing. Also, during that time, we managed to put up a computer "bulletin board", where people came in from all over the country and elsewhere, and downloaded information from our "Bulletin Board," which was the forerunner of the Discussion Boards we see so popular on the internet today.

Then too, we had an
800 number that we advertised in several of the larger newspapers in larger cities. We received many, many phones calls to listen to a pre-recorded message of about 4 minutes or so, directing attention to the book and our message. We've also used flyers, leaflets, for many, many mail outs to interested parties who wished to remain anonymous. And many

other methods too, personal phone calls, mailouts to at that time some 95 branches of the Watchtower Society, in different languages, French, Spanish, and of course English. (This move particularly served to frighten the Watchtower Society, that is the international aspect of our work. -- See Revelation 9:4-6, 9.) Indeed, we began to mail Brooklyn Bethel special small post card size messages to many Bethelites we knew, inside contacts, secretly, since at that time, there were even "Bethelites" as members of the Y.O.R.W.W. Congregation (called TWMC Information Center at that time…We changed the name in 2001). Yes, we advertised right in New York City, in a local paper, in Brooklyn Heights, that we knew certain Bethelites read frequently on the weekends and so on, and on...So you see, we really have been busy over the years, spreading the message.

Therefore, you can see, that over the many years, yes we have indeed, talked to many, many brothers, be it thru mail, telephone conversations and various computer email systems and so on...with many of the same questions being asked. Therefore, you will notice that these same "FAQ" or "Frequently Asked Questions" is truly reflected in our written material that we possess. We made a concerted effort to address many of the type of questions the brothers were asking all across the country and elsewhere, to better serve the brothers spiritual needs. Remember, our main focus has always been, our spiritual brothers, the ones who are trapped, within the Watchtower Society, in imitation of Jesus' ministry. -- Matthew 10:6; 15:24

Therefore to "wake up" the brotherhood of Jehovah Witnesses, 7 million strong, we realized then, would be like waking up a sleeping giant...sooo many people, ...sooo many questions. In fact, we begin to learn from Jehovah God, that bible prophecy actually indicated that this was going to happen anyway, on a very grand scale, even with Jehovah's Witnesses and people of the world too. Questions...questions and more questions about Jehovah's Hidden Purposes. Because at
Isaiah 11:10 it states:

"And it must occur in that day that there will be the root of Jesse [Modern Day "Servant" or "Chieftain"] that will be standing up as a signal for the peoples. To him even
the nations will TURN INQUIRINGLY, and his resting-place must become glorious."

Our growth, yes we sincerely believe, is actually predicted within the pages of the Holy Scriptures bible prophecy. Therefore we believe that this fulfillment of prophecy is something that you will see, with your own eyes...the fulfillment of people from all over the world, asking some of the same questions that you are asking right now. In fact,
Ezekiel 17:22-24 shows the growth to be this way:

"This what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah has said: I myself will also take and put some of the lofty treetop of the cedar [JW Organizational "Tree"] from the top of the twigs I shall pluck off a tender one [MDS; Chieftain] and I will myself transplant it upon a high and lofty mountain. On the mountain of the height of Israel I shall transplant it, and it will certainly bear boughs and produce fruit and become a majestic cedar [to replace current JW Organizational Tree]. And under it there will actually reside all the birds of every wing; in the shadow of its foliage they will reside. And all the trees of the field [other religious institutions of this world] will have to know that I myself, Jehovah, have abased the high tree [Watchtower Society], have put on high the low tree [Y.O.R.W.W. Congregation] have dried up the still-moist tree [Watchtower Society] and made the dry tree [Y.O.R.W.W. Congregation] blossom. I myself, Jehovah, have spoken and have done it." -- Ezekiel 17:22-24

We have complete confidence in God's Word, that such will become a reality in the very near future. Oh yes, we know today, we are still a "low, dry tree," and we continue to exist in that state. But very soon, all of that will change, and all to the praise of Jehovah God Himself. Yes, Jehovah will "exalt" his "low, dry tree", and appropriately "dry up" that wicked "still-moist tree," while they are in their prime even, so bible prophecy indicates. And we believe it!

Even today, to be sure, we view ourselves as a spiritual "priesthood" that carries out Jehovah God's most important spiritual "work." However, as you know, when the above prophecy becomes a reality, why yes, a very massive "priesthood" will have to be set up, to handle such a load of questions, from the world at large. (Isaiah 11:10) This is why we stress that the foretold "Male Child" is to be born first, to assist us in this great global work of teaching and preaching the "Divine Truth" to all mankind, as MT. ZION, where "law goes forth." (Isaiah 2:2-4) Yes, when the people realize that Almighty God has set up a spiritual "kingdom", just for that very purpose...right here on the earth, to answer these very questions that they have, people of all walks of life and all religions even, will flock to such a place, "stream to the mountain of Jehovah," as it were, to these qualified spiritual advisors or "priests" where finally Jehovah's True "Law goes forth" ...from Zion, God's Name People, just as it should. (Micah 4:1-4) So, when the people realize this, they will "stream" yes, flock by the millions to such a "spiritual" Paradise, such a spiritual "Mountain of Decoration" [and not a lowly "land of decoration" as Watchtower Society is today.], the place where God's Law goes forth, unperverted, uncorrupted, as pure, clean waters from God's Own Mouth. -- Micah 5:4; Daniel 2:44, 45; Daniel 11:40, 45

Therefore, this government will be set up, right at the time of the birth of the "Male Child", which we see is imminently before us now, as we speak. Quite exciting, is it not, when we think of such things, right before us, shortly to happen! -- Revelation 12:5, 10

But, remember, after the birth of the "Male Child", Satan will be very angry (because he couldn't swallow up the child when born from the "woman") and the bible says,

"...woe to the earth and the sea...because the Devil has come down to you with great anger, knowing his time is short."

Therefore right after that birth, there will be the greatest war, famine, pestilence, earthquakes, the world has ever, ever seen. Satan will be livid with anger...wishing to cause great, great destruction. It will be a time of such turmoil, that we must, yes, must expect! But it will be the undeniable proof, yes real proof, that the whole world of 6 billion people, and all of its pressing issues actually, PIVOTS and DEPENDS UPON what is happening or going on with God's Name People...Jehovah's Witnesses. Yes, Jehovah's Witnesses, those pitiful 7 million that the world totally ignores as being nothing...yes everything actually depends on how Jehovah God will deal with them, with Satan reacting to God magnificent act, to save the "Male Child" as certain "first-fruits" to Him from the filthy Watchtower Society Organization.

So, then if the "Male Child" gets born, as we know it will, well ... then Satan goes on a rampage against the entire inhabited earth. We must expect this. But remember, even though there will much sadness in the world with so many dying, still, this will finally prove something, we've been trying to say for many, many years, yes namely that Jehovah's Witnesses are really, God's Name People, destined to "rule the world," and establish God's Kingdom upon earth, as it is in heaven, as Jesus said. (Matthew 6:10) Jehovah's Witnesses, certain ones, the brave ones, will form this government for God! Praise Jah!

As mentioned above, Volume I of
The "Report" book, has been in existence for over a decade now. However, at present Volumes II and III of "The Report" as of the writing of this letter, are still "works in progress" with changes and up-to-date corrections being made still. It is our sincere hope that both books will be ready hopefully before the end of the year of 2012. Of course at any rate, we will advise when these books are ready.

In the past and even now at present, using our own financial resources, we did sponsor
FREE LITERATURE covering many various topics to Jehovah's witnesses themselves and the general public also. We were able to accomplish this by putting our faith in Jehovah to provide, as well as thinking of how we could help our spiritual "brothers" in the faith, putting them on our special "TWMC Mailing List." This way, the spiritual "food" was made available to God's Name People if they wanted to have it, but also it was made available for any and all who wished to read more about our work, those from the world, who were somewhat curious of our work, and just wanted learn more about our beliefs, the tenants that we subscribe to in our unique mission. Yes, even though financial funds proved to be sometimes quite limited, still, we endeavored to do this, especially to God's Name People, but even to all, to yes, offer "life's waters free," just as the prophecy says at Revelation 22:17. To date, this we have continued for over 20 years, since the Spring of 1991 when we started as a group.

Although its been
over 20 years, still we wait patiently realizing this special "food" provision of Jehovah, acts as "manna" from heaven, yes, given by God's Own Hand, and thus becomes THE SOLE SPIRITUAL PROVISION Jehovah God has provided for His Name People to STAY UNITED in thought and purpose, as 1 Corinthians 1:10 shows we should. So we accepted this special "humble" provision from God, as the means how one can continue to be spiritually fed in the "wilderness," during such difficult times as these we live in...knowing one day, it would be a Glorious Worldwide Provision of Living Waters, able to feed the entire earth. Praise Jah! -- Deuteronomy 8:3; Isaiah 40:3; Ezekiel 47:1-12; Daniel 12:4

Even today, we hope to be able to
continue to offer FREE LITERATURE to ALL the people of the world (though not necessarily the book itself), so that anyone can get the message...thru leaflet or printed flyers and so on. This is why a lot of it is posted on the internet...a sufficient amount to get a person thinking. But, remember, we don't tell it all (just as Jesus didn't)...because some it is still...a "sacred secret" that must be held in complete confidence, by the "Chieftain" of the Temple, who "eats bread" in the very Presence of God. -- Ezekiel 44:1-3; Amos 3:7; John 16:12; Revelation 5:1-5.

Therefore, as indicated at
Ezekiel 47:1-12, we indeed, do view ourselves, under Jehovah God's direction, as a Priesthood...a spiritual priesthood and temple for the nation of Spiritual "Israel," Jehovah's Witnesses. And as one might expect, we are thus, completely sustained by monies contributed for the specific purpose of sustaining the work of the "Temple" where these "living waters" flow freely, as shown at Revelation 22:17.
