Villahermosa, Tabasco.- Debido a los altos índices de inseguridad que se viven en las calles de Villahermosa, los Testigos de Jehová han tenido que recurrir a la tecnología para poder predicar desde una aplicación móvil, en donde los usuarios pueden descargar la biblia en más de 234 idiomas y dialectos, y con ello, enfrentarse al hecho de que las personas no les quieren abrir las puertas de sus casas por temor a ser saqueados.

Y es que señalaron que ante el incremento en la tasa delictiva, muchos ciudadanos temen dejarlos pasar a sus hogares para recibir la palabra de Dios, es por eso que ahora recurren a solo invitarlos “desde los portones o banquetas- a que descarguen la aplicación y exploren información relacionada a los mandatos de Jehová, indicó Raymundo Argudo Pérez, predicador.

“Es una aplicación gratuita para toda la gente en donde la sociedad de los Testigos de Jehová puede checar en línea información  cómo películas bíblicas,  caricaturas para los niños, consejos para los niños de cómo deben ser obedientes a los padres, también la Biblia en línea”, apuntó.

A lo que continuó: Algunas personas pues temen abrir sus puertas y nosotros evitamos accesar a los hogares, siempre les decimos que mejor desde afuera.

No obstante, ellos continúan recorriendo la ciudad en sus tiempos libres para trasladar la sabiduría de Jesucristo a través de la predicación en los hogares que se los permitan, situación que los vuelve vulnerables a los atracos de los amantes de lo ajeno, sobre todo en colonias populares denominadas focos rojos.

Incluso –dijo- que los delincuentes han accesado al interior de los centros religiosos en donde se reúnen, para secuestrar a predicadores.

“No se cobra nada y nosotros lo hacemos de manera voluntaria tomando en cuenta un principio bíblico registrado en Mateo capítulo 10 versículo 8, donde ahí se expresa nuestro señor Jesucristo cuando capacitó a sus discípulos para ir a predicar, él no les cobró si no les dijo, recibieron gratis den gratis, la palabra de Dios no se vende”, concluyó.

      MEXICO CITY—Mexico’s capital stepped up restrictions on traffic, closed schools and curbed outdoor activities in response to a sharp rise in air pollution caused by brush fires that have blanketed the city with smoke in recent days.
      Environmental officials suspended some public works and prohibited certain construction-related activities that could send more particles into the air.

      1888 "In this chapter we present the Bible evidence proving that the full end of the times of the gentiles, i.e., the full end of their lease of dominion, will be reached in A.D. 1914; and that the date will be the farthest limit of the rule of imperfect men. And be it observed, that if this is shown to be a fact firmly established by the Scriptures, it will prove; Firstly, that at that date the Kingdom of God, for which our Lord taught us to pray, saying, Thy Kingdom come, will obtain full, universal control, and that it will then be set up, or firmly established, in the earth, on the ruins of present institutions." (The Time Is At Hand, 1888, p. 76, 77)
       
       
      1889 "Be not surprised, then, when in subsequent chapters we present proofs that the setting up of the Kingdom of God is already begun, that it is pointed out in prophecy as due to begin the exercise of power in A.D. 1878, and that the 'battle of the great day of God Almighty (Rev. 16:14) which will end in A.D. 1914 with the complete overthrow of earth's present rulership, is already commenced. The gathering of the armies is plainly visible from the standpoint of God's word." (Studies in the Scriptures, Vol. 2, The Time Is At Hand, 1889 Ed., p. 101. The 1915 Edition of this texts changed "A.D. 1914" to read 'A.D. 1915')

      Con el cierre de la Colonia Penal Federal Islas Marías, a muchos les sorprendería saber que algunos prisioneros encontraron la libertad allí, mientras purgaban su condena. Pero así fue.
      Con el deseo de ayudar al prójimo, los testigos de Jehová buscaron la manera de dar clases de la Biblia en esta prisión. En 1985 empezaron a dar clases a un preso por correo. Al poco tiempo, ya había un grupo de personas estudiando la Biblia. Después, los Testigos recibieron autorización oficial para visitar periódicamente la isla, las clases de la Biblia que impartieron motivaron a muchos presos a cambiar su conducta. Por ejemplo, a finales de 1981, Jesús Mancilla fue sentenciado por tráfico de drogas y encarcelado en una prisión de Sinaloa; a pesar de sus antecedentes aceptó estudiar la Biblia y empezó a cambiar su conducta. Cuando fue trasladado a las Islas Marías en 1983, había cambiado tanto que ahora él enseñaba de la Biblia a otros presos. Con el tiempo, Jesús fue puesto en libertad y hasta la fecha sigue siendo un ciudadano ejemplar que disfruta de ayudar a otros a conocer el mensaje de la Biblia.
      Por el año 2004, el subdirector de la penitenciaría de las Islas Marías dijo a un testigo de Jehová: “Da gusto que ustedes tengan el mismo interés y la misma preocupación que nosotros por procurar el bienestar físico y moral de los reclusos. Cuentan con todo nuestro respaldo”. De hecho, se ofreció a reparar el edificio o galera donde los testigos de Jehová se reunían para dar sus clases de la Biblia.

      Se calcula que con el transcurso de los años, más de cuarenta presos de las Islas Marías recibieron clases de la Biblia que les ayudaron a cambiar totalmente su conducta. Al ser puestos en libertad, se convirtieron en ciudadanos honrados y útiles para la sociedad.
      Marcos Moreno, vocero de los testigos de Jehová, dijo: “Nos alegra ver que la Biblia da libertad espiritual a personas sinceras que buscan la manera de agradar a Dios, que se llama Jehová.Más de una centenar de presos en todo México han experimentado el poder de la Biblia para sanar corazones y reformar a la gente. Es tal y como dijo Jesucristo: “Y conocerán la verdad, y la verdad los libertará (Juan 8:32)”.
      Actualmente, los testigos de Jehová realizan su programa de educación bíblica en más de 70 prisiones de México. En algunos años se han dado clases de la Biblia a más de 700 presos por todo el país; además, cerca de 900 reclusos han asistido a las reuniones que los Testigos celebran dentro de las cárceles.

      El video de una testigo de Jehová ha paralizado las redes. La grabación dejó al descubierto el momento en que una mujer que viste una camisa naranja, falda negra larga, y una biblia en sus manos no se puede resistir a una canción.
      La mujer se encontraba realizando una visita y mientras espera pacientemente se deja seducir por el pegajoso ritmo de una cumbia peruana que se escuchaba en la residencia que visitaba.
       
      El video le ha dado la vuelta al mundo después de que se publicara en una página de Facebook y ya ha sido compartido más de 700 veces y reproducido más de 5.000.
      Pese a que la mujer permanecía tranquila a la espera de ser atendida, evidentemente no puede contener sus ganas de bailar y deja al descubierto sus dotes como bailarina, mientras que un joven que presenciaba el hecho no pudo evitar grabar el gracioso momento.

      MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s president vowed on Saturday to redouble his fight against an epidemic of chronic fuel theft after thieves punctured a pipeline north of Mexico City, causing an explosion that killed at least 66 people and injured 76 others.
      The blast underscored the deadly perils of the fuel-theft racket, which has cost the government billions of dollars a year and has been the target of a weekslong crackdown by the administration of Mexico’s new president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
      “Although it hurts a lot, we have to continue with the plan to end fuel theft,” Mr. López Obrador said during a news conference at the presidential palace in Mexico City. “We will not stop. We will eradicate this.”
      The explosion, which occurred Friday night along a pipeline in a rural part of the state of Hidalgo, was particularly deadly because the promise of free gasoline had drawn hundreds of residents to the breach in the pipeline.

      Most of us have probably already worked through the online Bible Study course on jw.org.This was an excellent idea. Although others sites have done it, too, it was especially good to see it on the jw.org site. It has some unique features here and is, of course, geared toward a Witness viewpoint. Yet there are very few lessons that contain a lot of unique doctrinal material, even though Trinity, Soul/Hell are presented. It's very simplified and has some nice features that would work well for non-readers. It's all finished in 8 lessons.
      Each lesson may have only a few questions or sections and a quick reader can get through all the content of all the lessons, including short videos, in about 15 minutes. You could even click all the footnotes and links and read the scripture links and still finish the entire course in under a half-hour. There are links at the end of each lesson which point to website articles (usually original or slightly modified Watchtower and Awake! articles that have their own pages on the jw.org site). Comparing this to several of our our books geared toward those who would study the Bible with us in person (for several months) one could more easily customize a Bible study where extra links were only looked up in the event the student had additional questions or concerns about a topic, and a sufficient study could be completed in a matter of days, or even hours.
      Notice too that there are no direct links to anything about 1914, 1919, 1922, etc. Nothing about blood transfusions, birthdays, etc. The very first lesson does contain a 53 second video where the very first and only secular dates are mentioned: they are 732 B.C.E., then 539 B.C.E., then 614 B.C.E. Someone might wonder why 539 is used as an accurate secular date and yet there is no explanation as to why the other two secular dates differ from the same secular evidence by 20 years. I don't suppose anyone expects the student to question this. A sense of accuracy is offered by the statement immediately following the video which says: "Each detail is confirmed by historical records, including the Nabonidus Chronicle and the history of Herodotus." Of course, the only reason we keep one of the secular dates (539), but change the prior secular dates by 20 years is so that the 1914 date can be "supported." But, as stated, 1914 is not mentioned directly in the lessons, unless you include two of the six extra links to articles for further information (at the end of the very last lesson, 3.3).
      These are the lessons: 
      Unit 1 | The Bible and Its Author
      Lesson 1.1  |  About the Bible—Can the Bible Help You?
      Lesson 1.2  |  Who Is God, the Creator?
      Unit 2 | The Bible’s Main Characters
      Lesson 2.1  |  Who Is Jesus?
      Lesson 2.2  |  Who Are the Angels?
      Lesson 2.3  |  Why Did God Create Humans?
      Unit 3 | The Bible’s Message of Hope
      Lesson 3.1  |  Why Do Suffering and Evil Exist?
      Lesson 3.2  |  How Does God Save Us From Death?
      Lesson 3.3  |  How Will God End Suffering and Evil?

      Salamanca, Gto; Carmen García Contreras, es la mujer mas longeva de Salamanca, esta por cumplir los 104 años de edad y recuerda muchas anécdotas de su vida, con mente lúcida menciona su deseo de seguir viviendo mucho años más y continuar bajo la creencia de la biblia, de Jehová y de su enorme familia que desarrolló con once hijos.
      Habitante de la colonia Barrio de San Pedro, doña Carmen nacida un 30 de noviembre de 1914 en la ciudad de Moroleón, Gto., nos permite entrar a su hogar y platicarnos de sus hijos, de su llegada a Salamanca poco tiempo después de que empezó labores la refinería Ing. Antonio M. Amor y de su esposo con mas de tres décadas de fallecido, un hermano que le sobrevive con 97 años de edad, hijos de una familia de longevos y ahora dedicada a la religión testigos de Jehová.
      Vive en casa de su hija Rosalba y con algunos de sus nietos, que por cierto no recuerda cuanto son, lo mismo que bisnietos y tataranietos, es dijo, una persona que no está enferma, solo los achaques de la edad, como las degenerativas, vista, oído y huesos, aunque su andar es lento y sostenido del brazo de un acompañante y su bastón.
      Con mas de un siglo de existencia, doña Carmen recomienda a su familia vivir con paz, sin rencores y con apego a su religión, la cual le ha servido de compañía tras la muerte de uno de sus hijos, ya que son cuatro los que han fallecido y el resto ya son también de la tercera edad.
      Recuerda con toda claridad las fiestas populares, de San Juan, y en cada barrio de Salamanca, siempre presente, su marido tenía el oficio de maestro albañil, lo mismo que sus hijos, quienes desde pequeños ayudaron al sustento del hogar y heredaron ese oficio.
      Carmelita García, hija del matrimonio, Epigmenio García y de Natividad Contreras, en su juventud nos comenta que se dedicaba a colocar los adorno a los rebosos, actividad que hacía en Moroleón, después de casó y llego a esta ciudad para establecer su casa en la colonia Guanajuato.
      Recuerda como en aquellos años en que llegó a Salamanca, la refinería era pequeña,comparada con la actual, una ciudad que la mayoría estaba dedicada a la actividad del campo, a la descarga me mercancías del ferrocarril, al vestido y el calzado, una ciudad en la que no se conocía la violencia.
      Los últimos años dice, sentada, por ratos acostada y con poquito caminar para “no endurecerme” y para que se ejerciten los órganos.
      El mensaje que menciona, es que vivan con armonía, con tolerancia y con mucho amos a la familia como a Jehová.

      La neutralidad es una de las cualidades de los ciervos de Jehová que les permite no tomar partido por ningún gobierno, señaló Leguízano Mejía, en su discurso denominado “para mantenernos neutrales” realizado en la Asamblea de los Testigos de Jehová ¡Sea valiene!, que se lleva a cabo en la ciudad de Toluca.
      Ante miles de asistentes a esta primer asamblea que comenzó el día de ayer con el discurso “Jehová es la fuente del verdadero valor”, Leguízano Mejía afirmó que sí se le pide a Jehová brinde las cualidades necesarias para enfrentar al mundo y enfocarse en las bendiciones del reino, le permitirán a cada sierco mantenerse neutrales.
      “Eso nos permitirá ser neutrales y por ende no tomar partido por ningún gobierno, que pudieramos considerar como injusto o quizás hasta corrupto”, indicó en su discurso dirigido a miles de Testigos de Jehová que asistieron al Centro de Convenciones y Exposiciones ubicado en esta ciudad de Toluca.
      También refirió el orador que en el orgullo nacionalista se tiene que tener mucho cuidado para no perder esa neutralidad, que se presenta mucho, dijo, cuando se presentan competencias deportivas.
      Con respecto al proceso electoral que se avecina, un miembro del comité organizador del evento, afirmó que si bien no acuden a las urnas a depositar su voto, si tienen un respeto a las autoridades correspondientes.

      CIUDAD VICTORIA, TAM. Los Testigos de Jehová de Ciudad Victoria Tamaulipas invitan a la ciudadanía en general a  la Asamblea Regional anual que se celebrará en ésta ciudad durante este mes de junio los días 15,16 y 17, en el  “Polyfórum Dr. Rodolfo Torre Cantú“. Los Testigos están seguros de que a todos los asistentes les interesará y animará la información que va a presentarse en la Asamblea Regional de 2018  “Sea valiente”. El programa dará inicio a las 9:20 todos los días.
      Comenzando desde el día 25 de mayo del presente año los Testigos de Jehová de la parte centro del estado emprendieron una campaña para ir de casa en casa e invitar a todos sus vecinos a beneficiarse del programa de esta importante asamblea anual. El programa dará inicio los tres días a las 9:20 de la mañana.
      Sobresale en el programa de su asamblea para el día Viernes, a las 9:40 am, el discurso titulado: “Jehová es la fuente del verdadero valor”… donde se mostrará  por qué todos necesitamos valor hoy en día y cómo podemos conseguirlo. Por la tarde a la 1:40 pm se presentará una serie de seis discursos que contestarán la pregunta: ¿Qué debilita el valor y que lo fortalece?… y más tarde a las 3:55 se presentará el discurso: “¡¡Cobren ánimo!! Yo he vencido al mundo.”  Este discurso destaca el ejemplo del gran valor de Jesús.
      Un rasgo sobresaliente del día sábado  en estos eventos es la ordenación de nuevos ministros cristianos mediante el bautismo en agua, tal conferencia se presentará a las 11:45 de la mañana. Por la tarde a la 1:50 pm se analizará cómo se puede aprender a ser valientes observando la creación animal, como es el caso de, el león, el caballo, la mangosta, el colibrí, y el elefante.

Y un poco más  tarde se pronunciará la conferencia bíblica titulada: “La esperanza de la resurrección nos da valor”… que se centrará en el mensaje de esperanza que ofrece la Biblia a quienes han tenido que afrontar la tragedia de perder a seres queridos en la muerte. El relato de Jonás es uno de los más fascinantes de la Biblia por tal motivo estamos seguros que todos disfrutarán ver la película titulada: “La historia de Jonás, una lección de Valentía y compasión” que se presentará a la 1:50 de la tarde.

      Tabasco. Debido a los altos índices de inseguridad que se viven en las calles de Villahermosa, los Testigos de Jehová han dejado de salir a predicar y ahora lo hacen a través de una aplicación móvil.
      Se dio a conocer que ante la delincuencia muchos ciudadanos temen dejarlos pasar a sus hogares para recibir la palabra de Dios, es por eso que ahora recurren a invitarlos  a que descarguen la aplicación y exploren información relacionada a los mandatos de Jehová.
      “En algunos lugares nos han asaltado, incluso han entrado hasta los salones del reino en donde nos reunimos, nos han asaltado, han secuestrado a hermanos” refieren los religiosos.
      “Es una aplicación gratuita en donde se puede checar películas bíblicas, caricaturas para los niños, consejos y la Biblia en línea” comentó el predicador Raymundo Argudo Pérez.

      La amañan de este viernes se inauguró la Asamblea de los Testigos de Jehová 2018, celebrado por primera vez en el Auditorio Telmex, el cual tendrá lugar del 15 al 17 de junio. Durante estos tres días se realizarán cinco asambleas donde se espera la participación de 8 mil 500 personas en cada una de ellas.
      Este evento se lleva de manera anual en 180 países alrededor del mundo, y desde hace casi 50 años en Jalisco, donde, según los organizadores, la asistencia ha incrementado cada año hasta en un 30 por ciento.
      “Se espera que las personas se beneficien del programa basado en principios bíblico. No estamos a favor, ni en contra de alguna religión, aquí queremos que las personas lleguen a conocer los principios de Dios y que los puedan aplicar en su vida personal”, manifestó Andrés Galarza, portavoz de los Testigos de Jehová.
      Para dar a conocer la asamblea se realizaron invitaciones personales de casa en casa, por parte de los miembros de la congregación, donde informaron que la entrada al Auditorio Telmex es gratuita y para el público general.
      La dirección principal que organiza y ejecuta los programas proviene de la ciudad de México, de la sucursal de Los Testigos de Jehová.
      El tema principal de esta reunión se desglosará en varios temas, entre los que destaca el valor para hacer frente a los problemas cotidianos. Para ejemplificar esto se proyectará un filme titulado La historia de Jonás, una lección de valentía y compasión.
      Asimismo, se tendrán congregaciones en tres diferentes idiomas: inglés, náhuatl y señas, dentro del Hotel Carlton y Aránzazu. El lenguaje de señas se ha incluido en estos eventos desde hace 25 años y los idiomas indígenas se implementaron a partir de 2018, junto a la impresión de la Atalaya y otras publicaciones.
      La siguiente asamblea que se lleve a cabo en la Zona Metropolitana de Guadalajara será para del 29 de junio al 1 de julio, seguida de otra del 6 al 8 en el mismo mes, incluidas dos más en agosto y septiembre del presente año.

    • The bible itself says that we must not have fellowship with those who are brazen in conduct.  There is no "threat".  When a person is a spiritual threat to other brothers and sisters and does not stop brazen conduct......then only, after they have been requested many times to stop unacceptable behaviour,  are they disfellowshipped.  These are the ones who usually then defame JWs and hide the truth-  that they were disfellowshipped because of a Christian conduct,  be it repetitive lying, stealing, fornication etc...... a practice of some und of unacceptable behaviour. Many realize the need to change and come back into the fold - others become more brazen..... and defame JWs.   I see you did not like this comment. ...... it says a lot about you.  People like to blame "others" .... never themselves.... Adam blamed eve.... lol.
    • My daughter bought a small home in UK in a safe area. One bathroom, 3 bedrooms - and it costs over over half million pounds.   So a 1 million pound house (especially in London must be the size of a dingy) and  is definitely not the epitome of luxury -  which impression you are trying to create. To sell a house that people have been using is good. They can use this money to assist brothers in the rest of the world. I guess they are selling because it is no longer needed..... but if they kept it you would also complain.  One cannot ever please some people.....
    • I guess - according to you -  we can throw out all the scriptures which indicate the anointed will have heavenly bodies such as 1 cor 15 and revelations - too many places to mention.  Not even those which show they will be changed in an instant. And the scriptures in Hebrews which indicate that they will be priests in the heavenly temple of jehovah.   Jehovah is perfect in logic, so why give a heavenly body when a physical body is more suited to the earth?  The marriage of the lamb will take place where? Did Jesus give up his earthly body to receive a heavenly  spiritual body? And did he really say to his disciples they will be with him where he is? Agh, there are just too many scriptures which indicate it is a heavenly kingdom and heavenly rulership....and a heavenly priesthood - a function you have forgotten about by just wanting to " rule"......... .which tells me you are up to your same old, same old behaviours.  You boast you are of the body of christ...... so which "body" do you belong to which has perfect unity? . How many members?  Where do you meet?  And are you and your adherents fulfilling the prophesy that the good news of the kingdom will be preached throughout the earth?     
    • And they sing a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll and open its seals, for you were slaughtered and with your blood you bought people for God out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, 10  and you made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God, and they are to rule as kingsr over the earth.”Rev 5:9,10 - NWT As a JW, this sounded accurate to me, since it fit the supporting doctrine that the “144,000” will rule strictly from heaven – “over” the earth...not within its vicinity, but from the spiritual realm.  What I have since learned about this scripture and Christ’s truth regarding where the anointed will be “ruling” from, has been an important turning point for me. Notice how the organization’s own Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures breaks down vs. 10: “and you made them to the God of us kingdom and priests and they are reigning upon the earth” Here are a few other examples: “And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”  Scripture4all.org “…they will reign upon the earth”.  https://biblehub.com/interlinear/revelation/5-10.htm It is very rare to find a Bible translation using the phrase “over the earth” in this scripture. The organization’s latest pictorial depiction of the 144,000 kings/priests ruling in heaven was of a vast array of emerald green thrones where men appearing identical to one another and to Christ, gazed over the earth as Christ’s “co-rulers”.  I wonder what the anointed JW women feel about a female’s apparent transition into a man, who are clones of each other.  This teaching sounds ridiculous to me today.  However, since the role of JW women is repeatedly slighted, should we expect any acknowledgement of the anointed being both male and female?  I could be in error, but I haven’t seen any photos of women partaking in the magazines.  There is no Jew or Greek, slave or free, male or female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.  Gal 3:28 To be one in Christ does not mean the faithful sealed anointed take on the same physical appearance as Christ. All of the members of a fleshly body are distinctly different in appearance; working separately yet collectively, with the unified goal to allow the body to work efficiently.  It is the same in the Body of Christ. 1 Cor 12:15-20  All are given various gifts, and all are individuals with individual personalities. They have abilities reflecting the gift they receive.  Paul described it this way: There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.  1 Cor 12:4-6 If they were all one part, where would the body be? 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body. 1 Cor 12:19,20 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. 13 For we were all baptized byone Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 14 Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many. 1 Cor 12:12-14 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.  Eph 4:11-16 The 144,000 are the Bride of Christ under the New Covenant “woman”/promise.   (2 Cor 11:2; Eph 5:29-32; Gal 4:26) It is curious that the WT's leaders rarely go into detail about this.  When I recall their latest illustration described above, I don’t believe the artist had the idea of “bride” in mind. I could only sense an aura of steely authority, without the needed compassion and love that Jesus exhibited and taught his disciples to nurture within themselves. (Isa 42:3; Matt 14:14; John 13:34,35; 1 John 4: 17; Heb 4:15) Just as a bride and groom are not identical to each other, neither is Christ’s Bride of many members; either to Christ, or to one another, as the illustration erroneously shows. (1 Cor 12:29,30; Eph 4:11-13)  Marriage partners compliment and support each other in love.  It is the same with the Body of Christ, being united in one Spirit that imparts love, faith and knowledge of Christ and the Father. The organization’s leaders are unable to perceive this spiritual unity, since they have rejected the Spirit of Christ, in exchange for the spirit of Satan.  (John 15:4-7;1 Cor 6:15-17; 2 Cor 11:3; 2 Pet 1:10; Rev 2:4; 8:10;13:11) Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.  1 Cor 2:12-14  In order to “rule on the earth”, God’s priests must be on the earth.  If we can shed the false belief that once the 144,000 are sealed in “heaven” they will remain there, we are then able to grasp how such “heavenly” angel/messenger/priests will be found ruling, teaching, and helping God’s future children on the earth.  (Mal 2:7; 1 Pet 2:5,9; Heb 1:14; Rev 5:9,10)   We can comprehend God’s “new creation” as having two “births”; one by fleshly parents through Adam and Eve, (Gen 2:7) and one by spiritual parents.  (John 3:3,5; 1 Cor 15:50; John 15:45; 20:22; Gal 4:26) Once Jesus was resurrected, he appeared many times to his disciples in the flesh; and just as easily, disappeared into the spirit realm.   His example set the precedence of what it means to be a “new creation”.  (Mark 16:12; John 21:14; 1 Cor 15:3-8)  By combining this event with Pearl Doxsey's help from her article, “Who are the gods?”, we can visualize the 144,000 “angels” present not only in the spirit realm, but on earth as well: The sons of God ("gods") inherit the promises given to Abraham. What promises are these? "I will make you very fruitful (John 15:8) I will make nations of you (Rev 5:9,10), and kings will come from you (Rev 20:4; 1:5; 3:21; 19:16,15; 2:26,27)". “Jacob had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.  There above it stood the Lord, and he said: "I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying  (Ps 37:29; Heb 2:5,16; Gal 3:29; Heb 11:8-10; 13:14; Rev 21:2; Heb 12:22,23; Luke 10:20) (Gen.17:6).  Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring (Rev 22:2). I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go (Matt 28:20), and I will bring you back to this land (Rev 21:7).  I will not leave you (John 14:18) until I have done what I have promised you (John 16:22).  Jacob was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place (Heb 12:22,23,28)! This is none other than the house of God (1 Cor 3:9,16; Isa 56:7; Eph 2:19,10); this is the gate of heaven (Rev 11:6; Matt 16:19; Rev 3:12; John 10:9; 2 Cor 5:20)." (Gen.28:12-15,17) "Jesus added, “Very truly I tell you, you will see ‘heaven open (Luke 24:32; Rev 2:17; Matt 13:11; Rev 4:1; 1:1)  (John 3:12; 1 Cor 2:12,13; Col 3:2), and the angels of God ascending and descending (Heb 12:22; Eph 2:6; Rev 3:21) "on* (Greek--*"in service to") the Son of Man.” (John 1:51) The "angels" (Lit. Greek, "messengers" – Isa 43:10,21; 1 Pet 2:9; Mal 2:7; Acts 1:8) referred to here, could not have served before the time of Christ (John 3:13) Jesus specifically said that they are in service on "the Son of Man" (1 Cor 4:1).  The "Son of Man" is Jesus in the flesh (John 1:14). Therefore, these angels serve Christ, after his coming down from heaven.  To be a messenger of Christ ("ambassador") who harbors God's spirit of life within... who has been made new (Rom 12:2; 8:11) as a part of God's new creation (2 Cor 5:17) by means of incorruptible seed, the Word of God (1 Pet 1:23; Luke 8:11)... …who has been reborn as a Son of the Most High (John 3:3,5; Rom 8:16,17,19,28-30)... who has been made an immovable pillar in the eternal heavenly Temple of God (Rev 3:12; Prov 9:1; Jer 1:18)... ...is a "god" (Ps 82:6; Rom 8:14; 1 Cor 8:5).  I do hope readers here find this information to be a personal turning point as it was for me, in learning that both Christ and the 144,000 kings and priests/ Bride of Christ, will have access to heaven as well as on earth, and living among God’s future children in the Kingdom. “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matt 5:14  Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. Rev 21:1-3  “But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple” Rev 21:22 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. 4 They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. 5 There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever. Rev 22:3-5 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 1 Cor 3:16 Pearl Doxsey: (type in her name and the title of the article in the search bar. The link should appear) “End of the New Covenant” “Those not anointed – what benefit now?” “The Holy City”   PLEASE SEE AND ENJOY,   “The Holy City” - http://pearl-holycity.blogspot.com/   Pearl Doxsey, “End of the New Covenant” Those not anointed-what benefit now? - http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/04/i-received-two-questions-1.html         And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all God’s angels worship him.” (Heb.1:6) "Jesus will again, be brought into the world. At that time, the totality of his angels/messengers, will worship him... and be in service to, the Son of Man."  Pearl Doxsey
    • We do have very good reasons, the math for 1914 wouldn't work out otherwise Yes, I think we would laugh. After all, messing around with numbers to "fit something you want it to fit" sounds pretty cultish. When looking at this subject again, in light of Br. Splane's talk about types and antitypes, and how he said that (paraphrased) we have to make sure that when we are talking about types, that they are genuine types, because the word of God says they are puts a whole different slant on it. Then the idea is enforced even further when he says who is to decide if a person or event is a type, if the word of God doesn't say anything about it and he quotes Br. Shroeder: ( We need to exercise great care when applying accounts in the Hebrew Scriptures as prophetic patterns or types if these accounts are not applied in the Scriptures themselves). Therefor reading the account in Daniel 4 without any preconceived ideas, I see these main lessons: verse 17  "This is by the decree of watchers, and the request is by the word of the holy ones, so that people living may know that the Most High is Ruler in the kingdom of mankind and that he gives it to whomever he wants, and he sets up over it even the lowliest of men.”  Lesson: (quite self explanatory really) Jehovah can do what he wants because he is the ultimate sovereign. verse 27  "Therefore, O king, may my counsel be acceptable to you. Turn away from your sins by doing what is right, and from your iniquity by showing mercy to the poor. It may be that your prosperity will be extended". Lesson: Listen to Jehovah and do right, otherwise Jehovah will discipline you. verse 37  “Now I, Neb·u·chad·nezʹzar, am praising and exalting and glorifying the King of the heavens, because all his works are truth and his ways are just, and because he is able to humiliate those who are walking in pride. Lesson: similar to above, and also proof that Jehovah carries out his discipline.  ---------------- The reasoning put forward as to why this particular chapter of Daniel (4) has greater meaning (paraphrased from WT October 2014) is that the book of Daniel has a central theme, that of God's Kingdom, and keeps pointing forward to the establishment of that Kingdom under the rulership of his Son, Jesus. For example what it says in Daniel 2:44: "“In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed. And this kingdom will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it alone will stand forever.” I can see that Daniel Ch 2 is talking about Neb's. dream of the statue, representing subsequent rulerships, and that during the feet period God's Kingdom will come. In my opinion this is one valid and definite description of when the Kingdom will come. Then Chapters 7 and 8 are full of cryptic beasts, Chapter 9 prophesy about the coming of the Messiah including his cutting off, chapter 11 more cryptic descriptions, this time involving the king of the north and south, and the last chapter (12) the time of the end with Michael standing up. I need an encoder! I must admit, because of my more practical disposition, when we studied the Daniel book, I did not pay enough attention. My son was quite small and I had my hands full, and I can't even remember if we studied it again after that? For example what are these numbers about?: Daniel 12:11  “And from the time that the constant feature has been removed and the disgusting thing that causes desolation has been put in place, there will be 1,290 days. 12  “Happy is the one who keeps in expectation and who arrives at the 1,335 days!" (It's ok, no need to answer, I can look it up myself).   ,Sorry, I was being confusing. I didn't mean 607 was special. I meant what happened when counting 2520 years from that date, I meant that 1914 was a very significant year. (have to go, will carry on later)
    • My daughter would play her album Time After Time, over and over. When I found out that Eva Cassidy had already died when the album came out, it kind of made a few of the songs sound even more "haunting" than they already were.
