I never disputed any of that. I just said no one important will read them . I mean it's logical, would you read over a million letters? (perhaps 8 million). Would you even want to OPEN that amount of letters? I worked as a secretary for a government official, and I can tell you, if I got over a million letters every day for several days, I know what my employer would have said. I don't want to be rude on here. In any case, what would have happened, because they are pretty identifiable (they follow a particular address format), my employer would have probably employed a few college students to sort through them and put all the ones that look like they are regarding the same subject into a big bag to deal with "later" . I wouldn't be surprised if similar instructions might be given at post office level in Moscow, where they are all going to bottleneck, and never even reach their destination. In which case the post office will be livid too. The funny thing is, they will have to sort through them in case they miss an important letter. Or it's possible they might have ways around that..... close the post office for a few days, and have in going and out going official and presidential letters mailed privately....
Thank you dear Brothers & Sisters ! YES, its really a BIG JOY.... seeing our BIG family around the world, all helping by that wonderful letter - campaign Really a VERY BIG witness and JOY for our God JEHOVAH ❤ I can't wait of the result next week !! Perhaps we read or hear somethings about that before ?
Scholars that are obligated to defend to Death their stance on erred chronology. That speaks volumes when erred interpretation becomes cumbersome. 589/588 BC off by 2 years under earlier cosmological interpretation for 587/586 BC, with VAT4956 and interpreted, secular history for 18 or 19 years. Yet, there is an inherited ambiguity with the same 2 years under 539BC to 537BC. This is the rationale of scholars. Talk about wanting their cake and eating too. I’m glad I learned this at age 8.
Now they bring in “Enn Kasak, Raul Veede “ People that suggest the Mesopotamian prehistory dates back 60,000 years, but. can only date permanent settlements from the Sumerian 4th century. People might as well believe in the bogeyman, like Zecharia Sitchin
Jehovah’s Witnesses launch global response against Russia’s proposed ban on the religion.
The Supreme Court of Russia is set to judge whether Jehovah's Witnesses can be considered as an “extremist” body. This came after the Russian Justice Ministry made its application for an order which will shut the national headquarters of this group. Jehovah's Witnesses has its base near St. Petersburg. The website of the Russian Supreme Court announced a legal team would get together on April 5 and consider the application made by the Justice Ministry. The matter of banning all activities by Jehovah's Witnesses depends on the outcome of this meeting.
Members of Jehovah's Witnesses have responded by making an appeal to Supreme Court officials and the Kremlin. Jehovah’s Witnesses have launched a worldwide letter writing campaign to Russia. The heads of Jehovah's Witnesses has invited its members from all over the world to participate. About 8 million people identify themselves as a Jehovah’s Witness. Jehovah's Witnesses is well known for its highly visible foreign ministries. Its practice of campaigning door-to-door has made it well known not only in Russia but all over the world. The problem with the Russian authorities is not a new phenomenon, Moscow labels it as a cult, a label which it fiercely denies. A number of its publications have been inserted into the banned extremist literature link. Russian prosecutors have projected it as an organization which fosters hatred, threatens lives and destroys families. The organization has denied such labels. If the Russian Government has its way, the national headquarters of the Jehovah's Witnesses near the city of St. Petersburg will be locked off. About 400 local religious organizations which are registered with the Russian government will be destroyed. These will outlaw services of about 2,300 Jehovah's Witnesses congregations in Russia. The state will seize all places of worship throughout Russia. Not only this, members of this religious organization will be subjected to be criminally prosecuted for simply carrying out worship activities. All of these matters will be judged by the Supreme Court on April 5.
#StopJWBan Letters from Jehovah's Witnesses to the Russian leadership !!!
One of Russia's own lawyers says here that his government is making a mistake, if they try to ban Jehovah's people...... very interesting !!
Posted on: 26 Mar. 2017 The editor-in-chief of the journal "Religion and Law" regards the claim on the prohibition of Jehovah's Witnesses as a colossal legal and religious mistake.
"From my point of view, the federal bodies of executive power, which is the Ministry of Justice, have made a colossal legal error and ... religious studies. The whole history shows that the attempt to ban, liquidation does not lead to anything. Just Jehovah's Witnesses will be in hiding.
And when I talk with religious people, with clergymen, they ask me a question, in fact, rhetorical: "Anatoly Vasilievich, what happens?" This is a colossal error of the federal executive bodies. I'm not talking about the violation of basic constitutional rights and freedoms of citizens. Article 28 of the Constitution, which guarantees freedom of conscience and religion, is simply trampled upon, simply ignored.
Jehovah's Witnesses exist today throughout the world. And even Nazi Germany, which for them was creating their Auschwitz camp, or in Polish it is called Auschwitz, where one million four hundred thousand people were killed - it was created for Jehovah's Witnesses. They wore a purple triangle ... And how did it end? It ended in the collapse of Nazism. But other states have drawn the right conclusions from this. Today, Jehovah's Witnesses exist, freely operate in the same Germany, in other European states. But why does this happen to us? I'm asking this question. And I'm absolutely sure that it will not lead to anything good.
I, perhaps, do not share the creed of Jehovah's Witnesses, but today I am for defending them, because the violation of rights begins here.
And I want to remind you of the famous words - they may sound trite, but they should be repeated more often, - the famous priest Martin Nimöller, by the way the German priest, the Lutheran, who said: "At first they came for the Communists, but I did not say anything. Then they came for the Jews, but I did not say anything, because I was not a Jew either. They came for the Catholics - I did not say anything. And when they came for me, there was no one to say a word in my defense. " So, do not be silent. If we say that we are a law-based state, we are a state where human rights and freedoms are guaranteed, where the law has the power of supremacy, then let's raise our voice in defense of Jehovah's Witnesses! "

“Be Joyful Forever in What I Am Creating!”
What a heartwarming lesson we learn from Jehovah’s words! He wants us to draw close to him because he is an approachable God. (James 4:8) These words also show us that Jehovah is humble. (Psalm 113:5, 6) After all, he continues figuratively to spread out his hands, entreating his people to return despite the fact that their stubbornness has made him “feel hurt.” (Psalm 78:40, 41)
Only after appealing to them for centuries does he finally abandon them to their enemies. Even then, he does not close the door on humble individuals among them.
Will Jehovah show mercy to faithful ones among his people? Isaiah explains: “This is what Jehovah has said: ‘In the same way that the new wine is found in the cluster and someone has to say, “Do not ruin it, because there is a blessing in it,” so I shall do for the sake of my servants in order not to bring everybody to ruin. And I will bring forth out of Jacob an offspring and out of Judah the hereditary possessor of my mountains; and my chosen ones must take possession of it, and my own servants will reside there.’” (Isaiah 65:8, 9)
Jehovah will bless his faithful servants. With hearts overflowing with joy, they will break out in shouting. Eating, drinking, and rejoicing are terms signifying that Jehovah will abundantly satisfy the needs of his worshipers. In contrast, those who have chosen to forsake Jehovah will hunger and thirst spiritually. Their needs will not be satisfied. They will cry out and howl because of the anguish and distress that will come upon them.
Jehovah says: “Here I am creating new heavens and a new earth; and the former things will not be called to mind, neither will they come up into the heart.” (Isaiah 65:17)
What of the new earth? Following the pattern of the ancient fulfillment, the new earth will be made up of people who gladly submit to the rulership of the new heavenly government.
Even now, millions of rightly disposed individuals subject themselves to this government and strive to follow its laws as found in the Bible. These ones come from all nationalities, languages, and races, and they work together to serve the reigning King Jesus Christ. (Micah 4:1-4)
After the passing of the present wicked system of things, this group will form the nucleus of a new earth that will eventually be a globe-encircling society of God-fearing humans who inherit the earthly realm of God’s Kingdom.—Matthew 25:34.
Jehovah describes more blessings that await the returning exiles: “They will not toil for nothing, nor will they bring to birth for disturbance; because they are the offspring made up of the blessed ones of Jehovah, and their descendants with them.” (Isaiah 65:23)
Those restored Jews will be blessed by Jehovah, so they will not labor in vain. Parents will not bring forth children merely for these to suffer an early death. The former exiles will not be alone in enjoying the blessings of the restoration; their offspring will be with them.
So eager is God to fulfill his people’s needs that he promises: “It will actually occur that before they call out I myself shall answer; while they are yet speaking, I myself shall hear.”—Isaiah 65:24.
I can't wait, can you?
