Russell rejects the Trinity Doctrine in 1882. But according to the Japanese calendar, the year Koki 1882 was the Gregorian year 1222. Strangely enough, Nichiren, a Japanese Buddhist monk, was born on February 16, 1222 in the Japanese calendar.
Since his passing, Nichiren has been known by the posthumous name, Nichiren Shonin, literally meaning St. Nichiren. But Jehovah's Witnesses is called "Ehoba no Shonin" in Japanese.
Nichiren predicted the Mongol invasions of Japan. The Pearl Harbor attack was a date pun on the Mongol invasions of Japan. So, it is hard to think that these events above are just coincidences.
