Annual meeting
New understanding
Understanding the difference between spiritual paradise and spiritual temple.

New understanding of the text to be used as text of the year:
(Isaiah 40:31) but those who are waiting in the Lord recover the power as eagles ? 

There will be changes in the ministry. Willing to locate fair, not to put literature.

As of January, there will only be 3 Watchtowers to the public and 3 wake up a year. (it's already official) every watchtower just treats a theme. A simplified and regular study will be merged. Material has already been prepared for public magazines for next year and the next. After two years, the management board will assess the effect of this adjustment, and if successful, there will be no more new magazines produced, magazines for 2018 and 2019 will be reprinted.
This adjustment in the number of magazines is really just representative of a much greater adjustment to our preaching work as a whole. We are so used to suggesting offers of literature for every month and new magazines to give our calls every month that our focus in the ministry, for most of us, has become more about the literature than to seek and reach those who They're willing to live forever. So it will not be a question that this publication should only be offered in particular at this particular moment of the year. We can offer any piece of literature for the ministry with which we feel comfortable at any time of the year. That means any magazine, book, brochure, whatever. In fact, since our focus must be on finding those who are well prepared, we don't even have to offer a publication - just focus attention on Bible teaching and try to place literature with someone as a secondary part of our ministry.

Yearbook 2017 is the last one to be published. Since 2018, there will be no yearbooks.

New post
How to stay in the love of God

There will also be a "toolbox" for the jw library.

The page of activities for the weekly meeting, the first page will have an example, rather than presentations.

So much more! Attend! ???

Redesign of the biblical teachings section of JW

The "Bible teachings" section of jw.org has been redesigned to facilitate access to content by topics. The following are some highlights of the changes:

The new subsection "history and the Bible" covers the preservation, translation and distribution of the Bible and how new discoveries continue to confirm their historical accuracy.

The new subsection "happiness and inner peace" explains how the Bible can help you deal with daily pressures and find happiness and peace in the face of complex problems.

The new subsection "Bible and science" shows how the natural world reveals the scientific accuracy of the Bible.

The subsection "questions about the Bible" has been redesigned to facilitate the search for questions on a particular topic.
The subsection " marriage and family ", which replaces " help for couples and parents ", provides practical advice from the bible that can improve their marriage and help them raise their children.

The Annual meeting whose first presentation ended yesterday Saturday continues today to repeat the programme twice for other guests in the us.
This information is not given to any other country at the moment.
As with all of these events, the president of the meeting often asked that recordings of speeches should not be hung on the internet. But you can make recordings for private use.
We have literally obeyed this request by not hanging on the internet any complete or partial recording or sound of this important meeting, even though there are such recordings.

How do we know what I'm talking about at the meeting?
Because the attendees themselves say it anecdotally giving the main points without giving more information from their notes, which are very abundant.
It is clear that they will not comment on the us brothers who were still going to the meeting today, and so enjoy the new events.

But in no way were the assistants banned from their mouths, who absolutely no one will comment on the great new and prudent slave. Because if that was the case, the rest of the planet won't know anything about it until months and months later, something absurd.
Finished Sunday shows, brothers feel free to talk to anyone who wants to, always avoid hanging on the internet.

That is why, with a clear conscience, we have shared in private in this group, timely and summary comments from the programme. There was nothing confidential.
We encourage those who even have problems of conscience, to abandon this group. Thank you very much.

Wasn't there mention of there now being a retirement home for old and infirm Bethelites at Warwick?

And a discarded understanding has been brought back about the 'vindication of God's name' - it's OK to use that term again.

The current plan is to have only 6 more public issues of the Watchtower between now and the of 2019, and then reprint those 6 issues as needed starting in 2020.

*** w59 5/1 p. 285 Sharing the Good News by Contributing Personally ***

  • BACK in August, 1879, this magazine said: “‘Zion’s Watch Tower’ has, we believe, JEHOVAH for its backer, and while this is the case it will never beg nor petition men for support. When He who says: ‘All the gold and silver of the mountains are mine,’ fails to provide necessary funds, we will understand it to be time to suspend the publication.” The Society did not suspend publication, and The Watchtower has never missed an issue. Why? Because during the nearly eighty years since The Watchtower stated this policy of reliance upon Jehovah God, the Society has not deviated from it. How about today? Does the Society still maintain this position?

Even in the early years, the "Watchtower" magazine went from monthly to twice monthly and back a couple of times. Many of the articles were exact reprints of previous articles, and sometimes the entire magazine was merely a reprint of earlier articles. In spite of the claim above that no issue was missed entire monthly issues were missed several times, sometimes replaced with another tract or book. In August 1881 there was no regular issue, and the September issue was a special issue on the Advent. The reason for not being prepared for the end of 1881 seems obvious, since Russell thought he would have already undergone the "change" -- the "rapture" -- by October 1881. Early ssues that were missed (as regular new issues) included:

  • August 1881
  • November 1881
  • February 1882
  • November 1882
  • May 1884
  • August 1885
  • November 1886, December 1886, January 1887
  • November 1888

"Millennial Dawn" Volume 1 was sent as a replacement for three missing issues from November 1886, December 1886 and January 1887. The announcement was made in the February 1887 "Tower":

  • . . . we sent a paper bound edition of Millennial Dawn, Vol. I, as representing three numbers of the TOWER, November and December, '86, and January, '87. [page 1, reprint p. 897]

In 1892 it was announced that the Tower would now be twice monthly, and go from 16 large pages to 28 pages. There was no new issue for April 15, however. And the June 1 and 15 were combined, etc. etc.

All that trivia is just to show that we've gone through things like this before. Increase in size, decrease in size. Increase in regularity, decrease in regularity, and a lot of reprinted articles, which appears to be the plan again.

Summary of Annual Meeting More Info 
In order to put more emphasis on starting Bible studies and reducing the amount of material that our brothers should read, the board of directors recently took a series of interesting decisions. These were announced at the annual society watch tower of the Bible and the Pennsylvania tracts on Saturday, October 7, 2017.

1.-  from January 2018, the public edition of the watchtower (Watchtower) will be published three times a year instead of six times a year. The same for awake magazine! Wake up! ) for example, the first number of the watchtower for 2018 will be distributed during January and February. The first number of wake up! It will be distributed during the months of March and April. Each theme will focus on a key theme that will have broad and attractive information.

 2._ the number of books, brochures, treaties, contact cards and videos will be reduced to the ministry of field. Articles of essential literature and videos that have proven to be effective in the ministry will remain in our "Teaching Tool Box"

3._ from January 2018, the specific monthly offers of literature will be discontinued. More emphasis will be placed on initial and continuing talks. The Publishers will be encouraged to use the good judgment to decide which " item " of the " Teaching Tool Box " will offer and when. Regular campaigns to distribute invitations to assemblies and memorial will remain as in the past.

4._ if the book which teaches us the Bible?, which is the simplified edition of the book teaches, it is available in a particular language, then it will stop producing the book teaches. The Publishers can decide whether to transfer the Bible students to the book teaches us now, or to complete the book of teaching with the student. Until the supplies of the book are exhausted, the publishers must continue to it interested people who show interest in the message of the Bible.

5._ a simplified edition of the book " stay in love of God ". the new book is entitled " how to stay in the love of God ". once this new book is available in a Language in particular, the production of the book "the love of God" will be discontinued. Publishers can publishers if they transfer Bible students to the new book or complete the book "love of God" with the student.

 6._ encouraging reports about the activity of Jehovah's witnesses in other lands are now regularly provided by jw broadcasting and jw.org. Therefore, the yearbook will no longer be published. When the global field service report for the 2017 service year is available, this information will be published in the "about us" section of jw.org.

7._ the website will continue to publish the following topics " activities ", " answers to biblical questions ", " frequently asked questions " and " young people ask ". in addition, the website will periodically publish the topics of magazines " help for the family, " copy your faith "," the bible changed your life ", and " chance or design ", "
 8._ no new content will be added to the following sections at jw.org: " letters of biblical character ", " ideas for the night of worship in the family ", " Illustrated Biblical stories ", " my Lessons from the bible ", " Illustrated activities ", " study activities for children, " study guides for what really teaches the Bible?, young people ask the work sheets and the series of videos what their peers say . However, the existing content will remain at jw.org.

These organizational refinements are expected to help us focus on our objective of teaching " to all those who are properly prepared for eternal life."

This could be the LAST annual meeting before Armageddon

@Jay Witness

Remember they said in two years it will be revamped? Perhaps more or less we will do then? Pray that Jehovah's Will is Done ✅ Forever Amen!

      This just in from the 2017 Annual Meeting:
      1. Watchtowers and Awakes won't be released regularly, at least three Watchtower and Awakes per year. 6 magazines a year.
      2. A new book is being released: Remain in God's Love, more of an update like how they did for the What Does the Bible Really Teach book. And it will be released 2018-2019
      3. Study Watchtowers will now be simplified or rather be in a simple language in two years from now.
      Did anyone catch something else?

      A fin de hacer mayor hincapié en iniciar cursos bíblicos y para reducir la cantidad de información que deben leer nuestros hermanos, el Cuerpo Gobernante ha tomado algunas decisiones emocionantes, las cuales fueron anunciadas en la reunión anual de la Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania, celebrada el sábado 7 de octubre.
      • A partir de enero de 2018, la edición para el público de La Atalaya saldrá tres veces al año en vez de seis. Lo mismo ocurrirá con ¡Despertad! Por ejemplo, el primer número de La Atalaya del 2018 se distribuirá en enero y febrero, y el primer número de ¡Despertad! se distribuirá en marzo y abril. Cada número versará sobre un único tema, que ten-drá gran atractivo para un amplio círculo de lectores.
      • Se reducirá la cantidad de libros, folletos, tratados, tarjetas de contacto y videos que se presentarán en el ministerio. Las publicaciones y videos esenciales que han resultado efectivos permanecerán en nuestro kit de enseñanza.
      • A partir de enero de 2018, se dejarán de indicar las publicaciones concretas que se ofrecerán al público cada mes y se insistirá más en entablar y continuar conversaciones. Se animará a los publicadores a usar su buen juicio al decidir qué elementos del kit de enseñanza ofrecer y cuándo. Las campañas periódicas para distribuir invitaciones a la Conmemoración y a las asambleas regionales continuarán realizándose como hasta ahora.
      • El libro ¿Qué enseña realmente la Biblia? dejará de editarse en los idiomas en los que exista la edición en lenguaje sencillo (¿Qué nos enseña la Biblia?). Queda a criterio de los publicadores pasar a sus estudiantes al nuevo libro o terminar el libro Enseña. Este libro seguirá ofreciéndose a las personas interesadas en el mensaje de la Biblia hasta que las existencias se agoten por completo.
      • Se está preparando la edición en lenguaje sencillo del libro “Manténganse en el amor de Dios”, cuyo título provisional en español es Cómo mantenerse en el amor de Dios. Una vez aparezca en determinado idioma, dejará de publicarse la versión anterior. Queda a criterio de los publicadores pasar a sus estudiantes al nuevo libro o terminar el libro Amor de Dios.
      • Debido a que a menudo aparecen informes animadores sobre la actividad de los testigos de Jehová en diversos países en el canal JW Broadcasting y en el sitio jw.org, ya no se publicará el Anuario. Cuando esté listo el informe mundial sobre la predicación en el 2017, se colgará en la sección “Sobre nosotros”, en jw.org.
      • El sitio web continuará publicando las secciones “Qué hacemos los testigos de Jehová”, “Preguntas sobre la Biblia”, “Preguntas frecuentes” y “Los jóvenes preguntan”. También publicará con regularidad las secciones “Ayuda para las familias”, “Ejemplos de fe”, “La Biblia les cambió la vida” y “¿Casualidad o diseño?”.
      • No se añadirán nuevos contenidos a las siguientes secciones: “Fichas de personajes bíblicos”, “Ideas para la adoración en familia”, “Historias bíblicas ilustradas”, “Mis primeras lecciones de la Biblia”, “Actividades ilustradas”, “Proyectos de investigación para niños”, las guías de estudio del libro ¿Qué enseña realmente la Biblia?, las hojas de ejercicios “Ponlo por escrito” de “Los jóvenes preguntan” y la serie en video “Lo que opinan otros jóvenes”. Sin embargo, el contenido existente permanecerá en el sitio por ahora.
      Esperamos que estas mejoras de tipo organizativo nos permitan centrarnos en la meta de enseñar a todos los que estén “correctamente dispuestos para vida eterna” (Hch 13:48).
