50 From the firstborn of the sons of Israel he took the money, 1,365 shekels, in the shekel of the holy place. (Numbers 3 NWT).
In the Columbus Ohio convention of the International Bible Students from July24-30 1931, the Watchtower took the name Jehovah's Witnesses (in fact on July 26th). The true God, Jehovah, Yahweh, must have brought his sanctuary into the right condition by July 1931 because if he had not done so then we would be in a situation where his name would have been given to something which was not in the right condition and this is impossible. For the Witnesses did not take Jehovah's name in July 1931, he gave it to them.
14 So he said to me: Until 2300 evenings [and] mornings; and [the] holy place will certainly be brought into its right condition (Daniel 8:14).
Fine, so the earthly holy place was in its right condition then - see , and 1365 days after this guess what happened? Judge Rutherford, the second president of the Watchtower, identified the great crowd at the Washington DC convention from May30 - June3 1935. And the way that he identified them was having invited especially the "Jehonadab's" (2Kings10), he said to them: 'All those with the hope of living on the earth please stand up' and then when they stood up he said: 'Behold the great crowd' or words to this effect.

Columbus Ohio Convention last day Washington DC convention first day
Jehovah's Witness name adopted Great Crowd Identified and told to stand up!
Judge Rutherford's actions at the Washington DC convention in asking the Great Crowd to stand up were inspired. The story goes, as can be seen on some anti Jehovah's Witness sites, that Judge Rutherford, the second president of the Watchtower, had no idea what he was going to talk about at this convention. And the night before his speech he decided to tell the Great Crowd that they were Jehonadab to the New Covenant Saint's Jehu (2 Kings 10).
