    HUNGER IN VENEZUELA ;-(( that is REAL...

    [Documentary] Our World Going Hungry in Venezuela BBC This is a documentary by BBC World about how venezuelans are struggling with the country's worst economic crisis in its history. Food shortage, inflation, high criminality and more are putting venezuelan on the edge of massive riots throughout the country. Tags: I reported for The Nation in late June, while Venezuela is not “in a state of total collapse,” as per The New York Times and other mainstream media sources, the country is in the midst of a very severe crisis, which is getting worse. Venezuelans are not dying, or starving, or looting en masse. But many, far too many, are suffering. Why? And what could be done to ease this suffering and help Venezuela get back on its feet? These are difficult questions to answer. This is not merely because Venezuela’s crisis has multiple causes, short-, medium-, and long-term. Nor is it because some of the causes, and potential solutions, to the crisis are quite technical. The difficulty lies, rather, in the challenge, and perhaps impossibility, of disentangling the “internal” and “external” aspects of the crisis. To an agonizingly large degree, Venezuela’s crisis is of the government’s own making. Instead of easing or ending it, the government’s actions—and inactions—over the last several years have made it far worse. Yet, the government has not acted in a vacuum, but in a hostile domestic and international environment. The opposition has openly and repeatedly pushed for regime change by any means necessary. In addition to fostering a politically toxic climate, the opposition’s actions over the past three years—its refusal to recognize President Nicolás Maduro’s April 2013 victory, despite absolutely no evidence of electoral fraud; ensuing violence that targeted state-run health clinics and left at least seven civilians dead; another wave of violence beginning in February 2014 that left 43 dead, approximately half of them due to opposition actions; and recent and repeated calls for military and foreign intervention—have also had a very damaging economic effect. The US government has not only cheered, and funded, these anti-democratic actions. By absurdly declaring that Venezuela is an “unusual and extraordinary threat” to US national security and pressuring investors and bankers to steer clear of the Maduro administration, the White House has prevented Venezuela from obtaining much-needed foreign financing and investment.

  5. News ----------------------Pray for South Korea South Korea: after several decades of religious persecution to the young Jehovah's witnesses, conscientious objectors in South Korea. It is very regrettable that the legislative system of his country is so overdue for several decades (almost a century), and He has not reviewed his cases to update this situation and to refuse and completely ignore the international human rights. Authoritative bodies that order the end of this political injustice and desist from continuing to force the young religious ministers to do military service. Even though many countries have reviewed the conduct Exemplary of these young people of this faith and they have been exonerated of military service because they find that they are obedient and exemplary in practically all things, obey the laws of the government and pay their taxes on time, do not riot or political demonstrations and are very peaceful. In the picture we see some young South Korean Jehovah's witnesses who bear this persecution and tell us with the number of their fingers what they have faced or are facing in their country: • One Finger: they have an appointment at the high court of Korea to be convicted. • Two fingers: they have an appeal in the high court. • Three Fingers: their situation is already in process in the superior court. • Five Fingers: they have already been able to finish their sentence in prison. • the others have been in the army before their baptism as Jehovah's witnesses. Surely our prayers to Jehovah for them will be of great value as they are being exemplary "by obeying God rather than men" and being neutral to the imminent adversity they face...
  6. ... ”Men Will Be Fierce”.... •••••••••••• (2 Timothy 3:1-5) ••••••••••• Reflecting: As long as we yearn for a world free of evil, where other human beings, or other living beings are not mistreated, where they do not mistreat anyone, or where they do not steal their organs from other human beings, where there are no kidnappers or mafias or Nor drug traffickers and do not abuse, abuse or kill human beings or animals. We pray for a world without promoters of wars that cruelly kill children and other innocent beings with chemical weapons. Very soon this prophecy being fulfilled today, about "fierce men, and no love of good" (2 Timothy 3:1-5), wicked and wicked, fierce who act like beasts, (Psalm 37: 9-11) It will trigger the fulfillment of another wonderful prophecy about " a new earth " (2 Timothy 3:13). and the worst predator of nature, the evil man, will cease to exist on our planet, why God, " cause ruin Of those who are ruining the earth " (Revelation 11:18). That Happiness!. There will be no more tears of suffering (Revelation 21:3,4). and the inhabitants of the earth will be people who worship the one true God Jehovah, and amen justice and peace (Psalms 37:9 B, 11 Even the animals will cease to suffer and will not again be hunted by sport by other unscrupulous people, and selfish to those who do not care to cause pain and suffering to other living beings. That is why we ask God: "come your kingdom", we ask for a fair government that will bring peace and happiness to those who love and learn from now to be meek, humble, peaceful and obedient to God, and take a free Bible course with the Jehovah's witnesses to learn with their own copy of the bible as it will be possible and how to dress also of the new personality of Christ, and may become the future citizens of a new world in which they will live forever on earth converted into A Paradise and enjoy many more blessings (Luke 23:43). Idea of: Richard Cabosq. (writing: Abel Romero Novella).

  8. Jehovah is glorified as the Grand Designer and Maker of this Wealth. Nehemiah was moved to praise him in the following words: “You are Jehovah alone; you yourself have made the heavens, . . . the seas and all that is in them; and you are preserving all of them alive.”—Nehemiah 9:6. Water, Wind, and Waves Water and wind create huge wavesthat crash with a deafening roar on rocky cliffs, like these in California, in the United States. Waves have always been a marvelous feature of the ocean, demonstrating its awesome might. They are also an astonishing reminder of the Creator’s magnificent power. Jehovah is the one “treading upon the high waves of the sea.” “By his power he has stirred up the sea, and by his understanding he has broken the stormer to pieces.” (Job 9:8; 26:12) Indeed, “above the sounds of vast waters, the majestic breaking waves of the sea, Jehovah is majestic in the height.”—Psalm 93:4. photos by giovanni allievi in savona, italy.. #OurCreatorJehovahGod👑

    I almost hesitate to quote this passage in the TNSV. Ah, well - here goes. "Okay, I got a 50, who will give me a 45, Done! I've got a 45. Who with do 30? Done! Now who will do a 10? A 10. C'mon folks, that's not many, a 10, a 10, ...a 10. Done, for the man with the camels!"

    Close but no cigar. The TNS Version reads: "Let's make a planet." Done! "Next!?"

    What we have is nothing of the sort. It's a good thing you didn't write any of the Bible. What a dull book it would be. I guess they were about to learn a thing or two, weren't they? Not only can God do it - his Son can also.

    Can't wait for Tom's New "Sassy" translation of the Bible. Here's a sample: Instead of: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. You'll have: At first, God had it made. The problem is that most translations do not translate any snarkiness into the the questions Malachi presents as if "talking back." The questions can come across as more innocuous than when Abraham questions Jehovah about whether he is going to do the right thing in Genesis 18:16-33. Will he still destroy Sodom if there are 50 righteous persons there, then 45, 30, 10? Karl Klein, GB in 1979, during Bethel's morning worship, joked that this was Abraham trying to "jew God down." To "jew someone" (cheat) or "jew someone down" (haggle unfairly) is a rather pejorative and not politically correct phrase that has fallen out of favor, (like "to gyp someone" referring to gypsies, or those from "Egypt").
