      One of the most scary experiences for a rock-climber is the first time he has to rappel down a cliff. The difficulty does not originate with the technical aspect of the rappelling itself. The uncomfortable techniques used twenty years ago have been replaced by highly efficient and very secure gear made of reliable and extremely resistant materials. The difficulty is that, to begin the rappelling, one has to lean backwards toward the cliff and let his whole body weight hang onto the rope, using the legs to push oneself away from the wall! If he tries to stay close to the wall, he will slip and fall against the wall, with possible serious injuries. Yet in such a position, the individual has no grip whatsoever on the rock and is quite vulnerable and dependent on the gear. Many say they'll never do such a thing because they're too scared by the thought of falling off due to some gear failure. So the instructor will spend time explaining that a rope is made with a triple lining, how the harness can support a weight of three tons, how the python sealed in the rock can resist to a pulling force of ten tons, how the hooks can secure a falling weight of up to five tons, until the scared-to-death candidate gains trust in the gear. The more he knows about the gear, the less rappelling down a cliff, regardless of how high it is, appears to be dangerous or risky.

      Trust in Jehovah—The God of “Times and Seasons”

      How should recognizing that Kingdom rule has begun and that we are living in “the time of the end” affect us? ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) 
      Many see the worsening world conditions yet fail to acknowledge that these developments fulfill Bible prophecy regarding the last days. They may expect this system to fall apart one day or may believe that somehow human efforts will achieve “peace and security.” ( Hello guest!

      But what about us? If we recognize that we are living deep in the last days of Satan’s world, should we not endeavor to use the remaining time to serve the God of “times and seasons” and help others come to know him? ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) We ought to make wise decisions about how we use our time.—Read Hello guest!

      Although the Son of man is coming at an hour we do not think to be it, we need to remember that Jehovah is the Great Timekeeper. His timetable is not controlled by world events and human plans. Jehovah regulates the timing and outcome of matters to accomplish his will. (Read Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. .) 
      In fact, Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. tells us: “A king’s heart is as streams of water in the hand of Jehovah. Everywhere that he delights to, he turns it.”
      Jehovah can influence events in order to accomplish his purpose and fulfill it on time. Many of the momentous changes in the world have been fulfilling prophecy, particularly in regard to the global preaching of the good news of God’s Kingdom. 
      Few would have thought that such enormous political changes could happen so quickly. As a result of these changes, however, the good news is now being preached throughout many lands where our work was previously banned. By all means, then, let us buy out the opportune time to serve the God of “times and seasons” faithfully.
      Now is not the time to “waver in a lack of faith”; it is the time to become powerful by faith. ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) God’s enemies—Satan and those under his influence—are trying to stop the work that Jesus assigned to His followers, including us. ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) 
      Despite the Devil’s attacks, we know Jehovah as “a living God, who is a Savior of all sorts of men, especially of faithful ones.” He “knows how to deliver people of godly devotion out of trial.”— Hello guest!

      Soon, Jehovah will bring an end to this wicked system of things. While we have not been given all the details and the exact time when this will occur, we do know that at just the right time, Christ will do away with God’s enemies, and Jehovah’s sovereignty will be vindicated. So, then, what a mistake it would be to fail to discern “the times and the seasons” in which we now live! May we never fall into the snare of thinking that “all things are continuing exactly as from creation’s beginning.”— Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content.

      "The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God."
      (1 Cor 3:19)
      Trust in Jehovah as the End Draws Near
      We cling to Jehovah when we heed his Word, which often runs contrary to human wisdom. (Ps. 73:23, 24) 
      For instance, people influenced by human wisdom may say: ‘You have only one life; make the most of it.’ ‘Pursue a good career.’ ‘Make a lot of money.’ ‘Buy this, buy that.’ ‘Travel; enjoy the world.’ Godly wisdom, on the other hand, is in line with the advice: “[Let] those making use of the world [be] as those not using it to the full; for the scene of this world is changing.” (1 Cor. 7:31) 
      Likewise, Jesus exhorts us always to put Kingdom interests first and thereby store up “treasures in heaven,” where they will be absolutely secure.—(Matt. 6:19, 20)
      Does your attitude toward “the world” and “the things in the world” reflect your complete trust in God? (1 John 2:15-17) 
      Are spiritual riches and privileges of Kingdom service more desirable and important to you than the things the world offers? (Phil. 3:8) Do you strive to maintain a ‘simple eye’? (Matt. 6:22) 
      Of course, God does not want you to be imprudent or irresponsible, especially if you have a family to care for. (1 Tim. 5:8) 
      But he does expect his servants to trust fully in him—not in Satan’s dying world.—Heb. 13:5
      Holding to God’s standards leads to happiness
      How can we trust in God
      • when tempted to do wrong?
      • when facing apathy or opposition?
      • when dealing with anxieties?
