  1. Past hour
  2. There are many individuals or organisations that are preaching the Good News.
  3. Wow! Trying to revive a 2016 topic. Try understanding the ARC transcript. Yes! The righteous and unrighteous will be resurrected, Judgement day will have a separation between the sheep and goats. So, NO! Non-JW’s (God’s People) as it stands now will be considered the (righteous) Non-JW’s as it stands now will be considered the (Goats). There is no justification and excuse on someone’s personal action and behavior. You either serve G-d the right way or you don’t. Jesus spoke of unity. Who is your church or do you consider like “witness” the church is the open air? Therefore, no need to seek those with the same faith. Will there be others following the example of the Watchtower and proclaim the good news as directed by Jesus in scripture, with everything else involved by keeping the congregation clean? Then, you would think they would be Witness like serving in the same capacity as the Watchtower. I have NOT seen another organization doing that yet!
  4. Today
  5. I am still waiting that to happen, but first Trump must pull off from Syria, according to the order of events foretold in Daniel 11:29-31: "At the time appointed he will return and come against the south [Syria]. But this time will not be as it was before, 30 for the ships of Kitʹtim [Russian ships, using Kittim=Cyprys for their needs] will come against him [USA and its allies], and he [USA, and president of USA] will be humbled. “He will go back [pull out of Syria] and hurl denunciations against the holy covenant and act effectively; and he will go back and will give attention to those leaving the holy covenant. 31 And arms will stand up, proceeding from him; and they will profane the sanctuary, the fortress, and remove the constant feature. President Trump announced already twice that he will completely pull out of Syria, and I thought that soon after this the attack will come against the WT organization. But then suddenly Trump changed his mind and did not order complete withdrawal from Syria. But the government of Syria with the help of Russia are steadily gaining ground in Syria. So the prophecy in Daniel 11:30 is evolving toward its complete fulfillment. That scripture has been in the process of getting its fulfilment since 2015 when the Russians came to the Syrians' aid. I do not know how long it will take before USA and its allies leave Syria. It could happen fast, within months. But I can not tell exactly because the Bible does not tell a time frame for this moment. But Trump could score some points for his reelection if he left Syria. That was his election promise, to end stupid foreign wars and to bring troops home. So to convince his voter base that he is trustworthy, he could do this before the next elections in November. Or smarter to do that as quick as possible. We will see when this prophecy in Daniel gets its fulfillment. Now the US ally Turkey tries directly to prevent the government of Syria to take control of the Idlib region in Syria. Turkey has deployed there thousands of military personel and equipment. But according to the prophecy in Daniel this should not prevent that prophecy to get fulfilled. Just a little delay, until the right time is in. Because this will lead to the beginning of the 1335 days, including the 1260, 1290 days mentioned in Daniel 12. Very interesting time now and it would be very sad not to understand these prophecies now when they are in the process of fulfillment.
  6. Cant seem to reply to my own topic, (or cant figure out how) and yes i was signed in why trying to reply. 

  7. Kosonen, I'll just say one thing. You told me some months back that President Trump would send an army to Bethel, which you call "the holy place" of Matt 24:15 You expected this to happen within a few weeks of stating it, I believe. It didn't happen. Deut 18:20-22 If Bethel, the headquarters of a corporation, is ever raided, it is to confiscate records of child abuse. That's it. You are stuck on literal time periods, just like the Watchtower. 1 Cor 2:14
  8. will non-JWs survive Armageddon? When asked during the Australian Royal Commission, if the members of the Governing Body consider themselves to be God's spokesperson on earth, Geoff Jackson said, "That would be presumptuous of us" Indicating that perhaps Jehovah's Witnesses are not necessarily the only ones who recognize the TRUTH written in the bible. Well here at Mark 9 v 38 to 41 we have this conversation between Jesus and John. John said to him: “Teacher, we saw someone expelling demons by using your name, and we tried to prevent him, because he was not following us.” 39 But Jesus said: “Do not try to prevent him, for there is no one who will do a powerful work on the basis of my name who will quickly be able to say anything bad about me. 40 For whoever is not against us is for us. 41 And whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ, I tell you truly, he will by no means lose his reward. There are a few points to learn from in this scripture :- 1. It shows that Jesus allowed others, apart from those HE had sent out, to do powerful works in HIS name. 2. Those ones doing the 'powerful works' must have had the approval of Jesus and God because they were receiving Holy spirit to do such works. 3. Jesus said whoever is not against us is for us. And I think only those who are fighting against Jesus and God's will, are the ones that will be destroyed at Armageddon. 4. v 41 Is very powerful and tells us what we need to know. It makes no mention of belonging to a specific religion. Maybe the GB and JW Org are too self confident. Maybe JW Org will not even exist when Judgement Day arrives.
  9. Did the 1st Century Christians cry out for Human Rights and Compensation ?

  10. Yo tengo un sillón de Marruecos que extraña tu espalda Un falso Picasso que cubre el retrato en que estabas Catorce adoquines que exigen tus huellas descalza Yo vivo del aire que expulsa el olor de tu blusa Yo tengo temor a perderte y terror a que vuelvas ¡no puedo vivir junto a ti y sin ti es imposible! Me muero por verte otra vez y me matas si vuelves ¡Que bueno sería despertar y que tú no existieras! Si tú no existieras Serían más cortos los días No habría que revolcarse en esta historia inconclusa Que es una ruleta rusa con ganas de perder Si tú no existieras Sería más fácil el aire No habría que respirar todo el aroma que Dejaste desde el día en que te marchaste Si tú no existieras Tú tienes el don de lo extremo no hay cómo evitarlo Jamás fui infeliz y feliz como he sido contigo Tú tienes el don de lo absurdo y hay que soportarlo ¡sería mejor desde luego que tú no existieras! Si tú no existieras Serían más cortos los días No habría que revolcarse en esta historia inconclusa Que es una ruleta rusa con ganas de perder Si tú no existieras Sería más fácil el aire No habría que respirar todo el aroma Que dejaste desde el día en que te marchaste Si tú no existieras
  11. Thank You so much for your assistance in providing this information for US! Do you know where I might obtain notebook for “Love Never Fails” Thanks.
  12. Are we going to see unprecedented famine in Africa? There are reports of enormous locust swarms in Africa eating up pastures and crops.
      Hello guest!
  13. The holy place refered to God's temple in the holy city of Jerusalem. Daniel 9:24 There are 70 weeks that have been determined for your people and your holy city,(.....) 26 “And the people of a leader who is coming will destroy the city and the holy place.... For all those who confuse "the spiritual temple of God" about which apostle Paul spoke with a material God's temple or "sanctuary" or "fortress" or "the established place of his sanctuary" or "holy place" Daniel 11:30,31; 8:11,13, think about this: In the first century the spiritual temple consisting of anointed Christians survived, but the literal God's temple, literal holy place was destroyed. So it will be once more. And the language in Daniel clearly refers to a material holy place in the end time that will be desolated. Daniel speaks about a sanctuary and a 'fortress' and an 'established place of his sanctuary' and a 'holy place'. (Daniel 11:30,31; 8:11,13) And Daniel makes a distinction between "to make both the holy place and the army things to trample on?”(Daniel 8:13) The "holy place" must be a literal holy place, while the "army" is the army of Jehovah's witnesses, especially of the anointed Jehovah's witnesses in general. What is then "the holy place" of Jehovah's witnesses? Foremostly the headquarters of Jehovah's witnesses are "the holy place". There is not anything that could be a more holy place for Jehovah's witnesses on earth. I think all Jehovah's witnesses would agree on that. And the prophecy is about them. So we should be in expectation of an attack on the headquarters of Jehovah's witnesses in USA. And an arrogant president could well come there and defile the place with an idol representing a political power and mockingly claim to be more powerful than God, and mockingly announce himself God. And because the holy place are the headquarters of Jehovah's witnesses in USA, then the only "king" that can do that is the president of USA. Thus the king of the north in the end time is the president of USA. And in reality, all the prophecies about time, times and half a time, 42 months, 1260 days and 1290 days and the 1335th day are about the final 3 and half years up to Armageddon. So they have nothing to do with events at 1914-1922 or 1939-1945. And the disgusting thing is literally placed as an object. So it is not UN. And it has nothing to do with UN or the Ligue of Nations. Such explanations or just farfetched erroneous interpretations.
  14. Wrong! It really means time, time and half a time, which equals to 1260 days or 42 months 30 days each.
  15. Have we literally seen that? No. Without twisting scriptures, the man of sin is a single person as we see it in the scripture. We should not be so unpatient that we are unable to wait him to appear. That was the point of apostle Paul, when he wrote this. Otherwise we fall into the same trap of impatience as WT organization who claim that the man of sin has already appeared in a collective form of clergy. Really why repeat the impatience of the WT organization? Please, wait instead the clear and complete fulfillment of the prophecy concerning the man of sin or man of lawlesness. 2 Thessalonians 2:4 He stands in opposition and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he sits down in the temple of God, publicly showing himself to be a god. At this moment nobody is "publicly showing himself to be a god". Here Apostle Paul is speaking in literal terms. So wait for a literal clear fulfilment of this prophecy. 2Thessalonians 2: 9 But the lawless one’s presence is by the operation of Satan with every powerful work and lying signs and wonders. What are "powerful work and lying signs and wonders"? I just googled and found an answer to that question that corresponds quite well with my understanding:
      Hello guest!
    Here is the quote from that page: Before the coming of the day of the Lord—a time of wrath and judgment—certain events must take place. Among these are a worldwide moral and spiritual rebellion, and the appearance of a "man of lawlessness." Paul points to Satan as the evil person who brings the man of lawlessness into power. Satan enables him to perform "false signs and wonders." One of the miracles is mentioned in Revelation 13:13 as that of making fire drop from heaven in public view. Another miracle is that of giving the power of speech to the idol he erects (Revelations 13:15), in honor of the first beast—another end-times figure, appearing in Revelation 13:1–8. These so-called miracles are counterfeit according to 2 Thessalonians 1:9, but they are intended to dupe people into thinking the man of lawlessness is the Messiah. Jesus, the true Messiah, authenticated His claim to be the Promised One by performing genuine miracles. False miracles are distinguished first by the person who performs them (Matthew 7:16, 20; 1 John 4:2–6), since any person who opposes God cannot be granted God's power. True miracles also support God's Word and His truth. As the apostle John noted: "These [miracles recorded in the Gospel of John] are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ [the Messiah], the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name" (John 20:31) I am appalled that many exJWs can't see the simple truth about this scripture.
  16. The sins of GB are of course disgusting, but the 'disgusting thing.. standing in a holy place' is a completely different thing. Let's not forget that.
  17. It helps a LOT ... when the wicked people that God wants exterminated, have a LOT of valuable Real Estate.
  18. Out of question did ALL people and children in "promised land" was so wicked and have to be killed or to be given a second, third or fourth chance to regenerate and stay alive (appendix*), I would like to comment this side of issue. God is absolutely Justice and Mercy. In that aspect His angels-warriors are able to done such task of "killing" wicked people. Or not? Did Noah flood was done with help of angels or by some other proces that God himself put in work? If His angels already had experience in bloodshed of wicked, why God found how His chosen people, human, had to learn how to kill, to learn to be organized in killing process and war tactics. Why He want that minds of this Israelite (soldier) be drag into dark side of human psyche. Beside this, warriors on battle field were not been able to bring "correct judgement" about who "deserve" to stay alive and who not, because "cleansing of the promised land" was not only battle in which Israel was involved through history. *appendix It is also interesting how all was about taking a land, more than about "wickedness" of people who already lived in "promised land". Because in many periods before and after this particular issue, God showing endless patient and mercy with all people, individuals and nations around the world, no matter how wicked they was/are.
  19. The only pre-emptive war Israel participated in was the " cleansing " of the promised land. This was an execution of a judgment bymeans of Israel upon wicked peoples who burnt their children in fire and had atrocious sexual behaviours. God promised that Abraham's children would be given this land but their error must first come to it's full measure. This was not murder because jehovah does not murder. These pagans paid for their gross error. Just like Sodom & Gomorra - this was not murder but a judgment because it came from jehovah.
  20. How deep can it travel in water? ... all the way to the bottom.
  21. I hope somebody will survive Armageddon who knows how to make glass window panes, and cell phones.
  22. If memory serves, the predominate language inAzerbaijani is Russian. I am guessing that this is the first crack in the ice that has frozen JWs out of the Russian Federation, and as I have mentioned about four times earlier, the ice will thaw and JWs will be "reinstated" by Vladimir Putin before the end of 2020. If that doesn't happen it's no big deal, as we (JWs) have never been right about ANY prediction, so I would have a really good excuse.
