      Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó declared himself the country's interim president amid nationwide protests Wednesday, in a bid to seize power from sitting leader Nicolás Maduro.
      The U.S. swiftly proclaimed its support for Guaidó. Maduro responded by announcing a break in diplomatic relations with Washington.
      Guaidó, the 35-year-old recently elected head of Venezuela's National Assembly, took the oath of office on an outdoor podium in Caracas, flanked by yellow, blue and red Venezuelan flags. He raised his right hand as a crowd erupted in cheers. He promised to serve as interim leader and call for general elections.

      Desde que está al aire hace dos años JW Broadcasting, es visitada mensualmente por 10 millones de personas.
       
      Los testigos de Jehová tienen dos récords mundiales: La página web más traducida del mundo, Jw.org en 750 idiomas, y La Atalaya, la revista de mayor tiraje mundial (42 millones de ejemplares mensuales), seguida de la Despertad (41 millones/mes).
      Desde aquel lejano 1879 cuando nació revista La Torre del Vigía, conocida después como La Atalaya, hasta la sorprendente Broadcasting o la página web en 750 idiomas, los testigos de Jehová obedeciendo el mandato bíblico de “predicar las buenas nuevas del Reino…”, han utilizado todos los medios tecnológicos disponibles.
      En esta nota no nos ocuparemos de temas doctrinales. Simplemente relataremos cómo esta organización ha adaptado la tecnología del siglo XXI a su propósito.
      Su interés se centra en quienes asistentes a las reuniones de congregación, asambleas regionales o internacionales o participan de la “Noche de adoración en familia”, pero principalmente a la predicación de casa en casa o en corredores comerciales, como agentes de publicidad del Reino, columna vertebral de su mensaje.
      El 24 de febrero de 1924, cuando empezaban las primeras transmisiones radiales, la sociedad Watch Tower inauguró su propia emisora.
      A principios de los 80, testigos ingenieros electrónicos japoneses, crearon en Brooklin el Sistema Electrónico de Edición Plurilingue, (MEPS), por sus siglas en ingles, para traducir las publicaciones simultáneamente en 186 idiomas.
      Fue de gran ayuda al recomponerse el mapa geopolítico europeo con la caída del Muro de Berlín, seguida de “la cortina de hierro” con sus países asociados y abrirse una puerta inmensa de predicación donde su obra estaba proscrita.
      Con el avance de la ciencia y la tecnología del siglo XXI, se hizo una reingeniería a la forma de llegar a una creciente población mundial, de 8.000 millones de personas, cada vez más ávidas y sedientas de explicaciones, y perpleja por los acontecimientos mundiales que enmudecen al planeta diariamente.
      En 2014 los testigos presentaron JW Language, una aplicación gratuita que ayuda a explicar en diversos idiomas lo que enseña la Biblia.
      El 6 de octubre de 2014 se lanzó experimentalmente el canal de televisión por internet JW Broadcastin, inicialmente en ingles. Desde agosto de 2015 está disponible en 70 idiomas.
      En condiciones normales, montar un estudio de televisión climatizado, con equipos de audio y video, estudios, sets, producción, grabación, redactar guiones, escenificaciones, producir videos y aprender manejo de cámaras, tarda dos años. Los testigos lo lograron en dos meses.
      Los TJ son un ejercito de más de 8 millones de personas reconocidas mundialmente por predicar en más de 230 países. Con ese contingente cubren palmo a palmo todos los rincones de la tierra.
      Ahora, además de hacer visitas en las casas, desde hace más de un año emplean exhibidores portátiles, mesas y kioskos.
      Solo se entra en contacto con los transeúntes si estos plantean una pregunta o inquietud.
      También, parte de lo publicado en 137 años esta sistematizado, comprimido y disponible en el sitio web JW Library y JW Biblioteca Virtual.
      En las reuniones de congregación y en la predicación se agiliza la búsqueda de textos bíblicos o videos, en tablets y equipos móviles.
      Las Asambleas son amenas reuniones instructivas donde se enseña con representaciones video grabadas, proyectadas en gigantescos video Beams, como en los dos auditorios del Salón de Asambleas de Galapa donde pueden acomodarse 4.000 personas.
      La Atalaya redujo su paginaje y tiene dos ediciones mensuales, una que se coloca públicamente y otra exclusivamente de estudio semanal en las congregaciones.
      Despertad ahora se edita mensualmente y se distribuyen 12 revistas anuales.
      Con 137 años de circulacion global, la Atalaya ha tenido tal acogida que hace algunos años una multinacional de refrescos, sodas o gaseosas como decimos en Colombia, propuso financiar un aviso que copara la contraportada.
      Por supuesto, la oferta fue desestimada.

    • There are dozens. When I mentioned going back 300 years I was thinking that a lot of people start with Matthew Henry's from the 1700's. https://www.blueletterbible.org/Comm/mhc/Dan/Dan_004.cfm?a=854001 But there are many more modern ones these days that might appear too long, but that's partly because they also reprint the entire Bible text, split up into sections. https://wernerbiblecommentary.org/?q=node/732 https://www.blueletterbible.org/Comm/jfb/Dan/Dan_004.cfm?a=854001 https://www.blueletterbible.org/Comm/smith_chuck/c2000_Dan/Dan_001.cfm?a=854001 The Chapter 4 portion of this one, above, includes the following supposition: The seven times are probably a year and three quarters. Referring to the summer, fall, winter, spring, rather than seven years. And so for a year and three quarters, king Nebuchadnezzar was to be insane. He was to live with the ox and out in the field. He was to eat grass like a wild animal. This was to continue until he realize that the God in heaven is the One who rules over the earth as far as establishing kingdoms and setting in power those whom He will. God still rules in the overall sense. And sometimes God puts evil men into power in order to bring judgment upon the people. But God rules over all. So after Daniel interprets, he said, "Now look, king, straighten up, man. Live right. You know, it may be that you can increase the days of your peace because you know this is going to come on you. But maybe by living right you can forestall it a bit." [Others have guessed 7 "time periods" were 7 months. But the point is, that we don't know for sure] https://www.blueletterbible.org/Comm/guzik_david/StudyGuide2017-Dan/Dan-4.cfm?a=854001 That one, above, includes the idea that if there is any further prophetic significance to the dream, that it could mean this: Some find prophetic significance in this account. Since Babylon is used in the Scriptures as a figure of the world system in general, we can say: · Nebuchadnezzar’s madness foreshadows the madness of Gentile nations in their rejection of God. · Nebuchadnezzar’s fall typifies Jesus’ judgment of the nations. · Nebuchadnezzar’s restoration foreshadows the restoring of some of these nations in the millennial kingdom.  
    • This is so typical.....loved this experience !  People are people, and their ideas on neutrality are not the same - even after the lessons have been repeated over and over  in the watchtower.  Keeping neutral .... but not understanding what true neutrality is.   Neutrality does not mean you are not supposed to know what is happening around you or that someone has to be silenced when they mention something ... But I reckon.... this is where true humility comes into play and for the sake of peace,  refrain from having  your say.  It can also come back to bite you. There is a time to keep silent. Neutrality is making a choice every time an issue comes up.  Granted, it us hard not to take sides when you have an idea about who is lying in a particular situation....!  But deceit and lying is all part of the political game. These politicians gave up something to be where they are.  Truth and sincerity are replaced by ambition and lies and many hidden deals.  I am astounded at the open nepotism tolerated everywhere in Washington- on both sides of the isle! People have truly lost their moral compass!   And the staggering amounts of money to be made ....... poor politicians become multi-millionaires pretty quickly .... and so do their children make tons of money and extend their influence in other countries!   These days, no politician  can fight a clean fight and expect to win..... too much spying,  false leaks in the news, misinformation and outright acrimony.  I do watch world news and events to see fulfillment of bible prophecy.  No matter who wins the next election - USA is on a downward spiral and the spectators will be agast when they realise the plane is totally out of control.  The speed of the decent depends on who is next elected....... the speed of the decent may be fast or slow.  The self-deceit of the public is amazing and helped by the press who mostly tell the public what they want to hear.   America will still exist when the end comes but it will have handed over it power willingly to the eighth king....... So, if a certain party - which is very willing to hand over its autonomy, wins - then I will gauge that the decent will be faster than i anticipated......  The "clay and iron" has reached a point of  irreconcileability......and this same scenario is playing out in Europe, Australia, Canada etc.  (Bible so accurate in its predictions) . In the meantime Russia, China and all their allies are extending their economic influence and territories. It is really now just a matter of time then things will truly become ugly and we will know that we have arrived at the time we were waiting for!  We will see jehovah in action! 
    • That's already been done. Just read nearly any Bible commentary on Daniel 4 written during the last 300 years or so.
    • Yes That immediately crossed my mind too! And also when talking about the pyramids, he quoted Rutherford who said "Jehovah doesn't need a stone monument built by pagans to accomplish his purpose" it made me think why would he use pagan Nebuchadnezzar to illustrate Christ's rulership?
    • Do you mean go first to explain 1914 as a true possibility in a simpler way? Or do you mean go first to explain Daniel 4 in a simpler way (with or without 1914)? The funny thing is that Brother Splane without realizing it, I think, already gave a very appropriate analogy for what's wrong with the 1914 doctrine when he decided to point out some particularly ridiculous "typologies" that did things like try to make something out of the number of fish caught by the disciples after Jesus was resurrected, namely, 153. Then he went on to show the ridiculousness of trying to read too much into the story of Jacob and Esau and the bowl of stew. Brother Splane said: One scholar made much of Jacob’s purchase of Esau’s birthright with a bowl of red stew. Very significant that the stew was red. To him, the red stew pictured the red blood of Christ. The inheritance pictured the heavenly inheritance. It’s all… By that reasoning, Jacob pictures Jesus, Esau’s birthright pictures the heavenly inheritance, and the red stew pictures Jesus’ precious blood. Now on the surface that might sound plausible to some, until you think about it. When you think about it you see three problems. First of all, Jehovah didn’t design the type. Jehovah did not tell Esau to sell his birthright. Selling his birthright was wrong, and Jehovah never tells us to do something that’s wrong. Second, who ate the stew? Esau did. So are we to conclude that, by giving up his inheritance, Esau put himself in line for the ransom sacrifice of Jesus Christ? That doesn’t make any sense. And most importantly, nowhere in Scripture do we read that the event was a type. The temptation to go for chronological numerology over 153 fish should remind us of how we take 7 times and turn them into 7x360 to get the number of Jewish prophetic days using a 360 day year, and then turning each of those 2,520 days into solar years of 365.25 days apiece so that we can get 2,520 solar years, to reach from the fall of Jerusalem down to modern times. And then we must readjust the archaeological dates by about 20 years to make them reach 1914 instead of 1934.  But the biggest problem is the same as the sentences about Esau above, which we can correlate with a similar problem with Nebuchadnezzar: Second, who ate the stew? Esau did. So are we to conclude that, by giving up his inheritance, Esau put himself in line for the ransom sacrifice of Jesus Christ? That doesn’t make any sense. And most importantly, nowhere in Scripture do we read that the event was a type. Now we can have the same situation regarding Nebuchadnezzar in Splane English Second, who was forced to lose his kingdom and then became insane? Nebuchadnezzar did. So are we to conclude that, by giving up his kingdom and acting insane for a time, that Nebuchadnezzar put himself in line to represent the Messianic kingdom of Jesus Christ? That doesn't make any sense. And most importantly, nowhere in Scripture do we read that this event was a type.
