      Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, predicts that in ten years, all new cars in the U.S. will be electric vechicles. He spoke at the closing plenary session of the annual summer meeting of the National Governors Association where he discussed the impact of emerging technologies on energy and transportation, and warned about the future of artificial intelligence. The session began with remarks by outgoing NGA Chair Terry McAuliffe who introduced his successor, Gov. Brian Sandoval (R-NV).

      SpaceX’s Falcon 9 “1029” is nearly ready to conduct its second commercial launch later this weekend after today’s successful static fire at Launch Complex 39A. Static fire was initially planned for June 13th but was delayed to the 14th and then the 15th, with the launch date also being delayed by two days to June 19th. This small delay is likely a result of launch pad readiness procedures taking a bit longer than intended.
      Now scheduled with a window of 2-5 p.m. EST on June 19th, a successful launch will mark the second successful reuse of a Falcon 9 first stage and thus the second ever reuse of an orbital-class rocket. This particular first stage, 1029, is coincidentally symbolic in the sense that it launched SpaceX’s first mission after the Amos-6 failure last year, when a complex series of events led to a massive explosion that destroyed Falcon 9, the Amos-6 payload, and severely damaged the site it was to launch from. Elon Musk deemed it “the most difficult and complex failure” SpaceX had ever faced. It was all the more surprising that the company returned to flight just over four months later, in an industry in which failures of the same scale can result in launch vehicle groundings of multiple years (the Space Shuttle, Orbital ATK’s Antares).
      1029 after recovery in the Pacific Ocean. 1 in the “1029” indicates that it is a first stage and 029 implies that it is the 29th Falcon 9 to be manufactured. SpaceX has recently begun to physically label each stage with their serial numbers between their landing legs. (SpaceX)
      The best possible demonstration of a launch company’s confidence in their ability to spring back from a trying failure may well be a willingness to reuse the actual launch vehicle that marked their return to flight. And that is exactly what SpaceX is about to attempt with the second launch of 1029, which flawlessly orbited Iridum’s first set of ten NEXT satellites in the company’s return to flight after Amos-6.

      Falcon 9 1029 will be tasked with placing the satellite in a geostationary transfer orbit, meaning that the satellite itself will use its own bi-propellant thrusters to reach its final geostationary orbit above Earth. With a mass estimated around 4000 kilograms, 1029 will very likely be able to attempt a recovery by landing on SpaceX’s West coast Autonomous Spaceport Drone Ship (ASDS), known as Of Course I Still Love You (OCISLY). There have also been reports of the

      An automated method of securing recovered stages after landing has the potential to progress SpaceX’s goal of rapid reusability, and BulgariaSat-1 will mark the beginning of a schedule that has

      BulgariaSat-1 has lately been called Bulgaria’s first true satellite, but it is really the country’s second satellite. Manufactured and assembled by the Palo Alto, California-based Space Systems Loral (SSL), it will offer much broader coverage of the Europe and Balkans regions and provide high quality satellite television and telecommunications services in a bid to expand Bulsatcom’s market.
      Much like cars are often built off of the same chassis, BulgariaSat-1 is based upon a communications satellite bus (SL-1300) that has flown successfully dozens of times and currently has dozens of active variants in geostationary orbits. BulgariaSat-1 will be the sixth SL-1300 derived satellite that SpaceX themselves have launched, and the company has four other SL-1300 satellite scheduled for launch in 2017 and 2018.

      Elon Musk is just like any other guy. He wakes up, reads emails, sends his kids off to school and goes to work.
      For the most part, his relatability ends there. Musk is one of the most productive men in the world, and his employees at SpaceX just propelled him to a new accolade, 8th place in

      The list is topped by Clorox’s Benno Dorrer, and fellow chip innovator and Tesla owner Jen-Hsu Huang of NVIDIA came in 6th.

      Musk’s ranking comes solely from SpaceX, as his Tesla and

The fact that he is balancing senior leadership roles in these companies, as well as with OpenAI and Boring Co., is a testament to his organizational abilities. “I’d say focus on signal over noise,” he told Glassdoor. “Don’t waste time on stuff that doesn’t actually make things better.”

      SpaceX has successfully conducted its eight launch of 2017 and the second successful reuse of an orbital class rocket ever. BulgariaSat-1 is currently attached to the second stage and is coasting in orbit in preparation for one more burn of the second stage engine before being deployed.
      After previously revealing that this recovery would be the most trying attempt yet for the Falcon 9’s first stage, Musk has now confirmed what most of fans already surmised from the live coverage. Core 1029 has successfully been recovered once again, albeit in a very toasty form, and after a very hard landing that used almost all of the shock absorption within the stage’s landing legs. Aside from now being a leaning tower of rocket, Musk has said that the stage is fine condition.
      SpaceX has successfully reused a first stage for the second time.
      In fact, given that BulgariaSat-1 weighed a relatively small 3,700 kilograms, it is very likely that this extra brutal recovery was effectively a live test conducted by SpaceX in order to gauge the upper bounds of what missions can attempt recovery. It makes sense that this was conducted with a first stage that had already flown successfully, as the value lost from destroying that core during a test would be significantly less than losing a “new” core. Regardless, it would appear that the test was quite successful and the data gathered will likely assist SpaceX in the future.

      This launch makes the BulgariaSat-1 mission SpaceX’s second ever successful commercial reuse of an orbital vehicle, and leaves the company with two first stages that have now been both launched and recovered twice. With the successful reuse of a Dragon capsule having occurred just over two weeks ago, it is truly an auspicious year for SpaceX in terms of progressing their program of reuse and improving affordable access to space.
      Minutes ago, the second stage completed its second burn and BulgariaSat-1 was successfully detached, now ready to begin the process of reaching its final orbit. As is normal for most satellites, it will take several months at least for BulgariaSat-1 to reach its geostationary orbit and operational status, and the team at Bulsatcom will carefully verify that the satellite is functional and behaving as expected during that time. No communications satellite mission is truly done until it is declared operational, but it is safe to say that BulgariaSat-1 has had a nominal journey thus far.
      Keep your eyes peeled for SpaceX’s Iridium-2 launch scheduled for this Sunday afternoon, as well as coverage of the recovery of today’s extra toasty first stage.

      On the heels of the announcement that the Falcon Heavy rocket will make its debut launch in November, SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to social media to share a first draft animation of how the much-anticipated rocket might look.

      The animation depicts both the side boosters of the rocket landing back on Earth after sending off the core. After the first and second stages separate, the first stage rocket aligns itself for reentry. The side boosters are the same ones used in the company’s Falcon 9.
      One point of discrepancy, the first draft animation shows the center booster landing on ground, but the booster will actually land on a droneship.

      Musk’s reference to “luck” in his tweet is in line with previous statements the EV mogul has made.

      “There’s a lot of risk associated with Falcon Heavy, a real good chance that that vehicle does not make it to orbit. I want to make sure to set expectations accordingly. I hope it makes it far enough beyond the pad so that it does not cause pad damage. I would consider even that a win, to be honest,” Musk said, according to
      Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. . SpaceX has slated two Falcon Heavy tests for the first half of 2018, depending on how the November test goes.
      Musk has confirmed that both side cores will land at LZ-1, SpaceX’s land-based landing facilities, and the center core will land on Of Course I Still Live You somewhere in the Atlantic. While not guaranteed, Musk’s myriad comments on the spectacular nature of the launch mean that SpaceX’s live coverage will offer some memorable views.
      As our own Eric Ralph said, “If Falcon Heavy does indeed lift off above a more controlled fireball later this year, fans can look forward to what will be a stunning show of force.”

      After almost exactly one month without the roar of rockets, SpaceX is preparing to return Kennedy Space Center to active launch status with its twelfth Commercial Resupply Services mission.
      The static fire of Dragon’s first stage, 1039, is scheduled for no earlier than tomorrow, August 10th, with the launch planned for 9:56 a.m. PST/12:56 p.m. EST on Monday, August 14th. In what has become routine for CRS missions, 1039 will return to SpaceX’s Florida-based LZ-1 landing facility after it separates from the second stage.
      The Dragon it is to launch to the International Space Station marks its own milestone as the last “new” vehicle that SpaceX will launch during its remaining eight CRS-1 missions. Following CRS-12, every subsequent CRS launch will utilize reused hardware. Discussed at the ISS R&D Conference just a few weeks ago, Musk revealed that while the reused flight of CRS-11’s Dragon likely cost at least as much or more than flying new hardware, future reuses of Dragon would likely drop the cost by as much as half, resulting in significant cost savings for the company. As of June 2016, CRS-12 is expected to bring with it 7,300 lbs of cargo.
      3 years later, CRS-4Â’s capsule is captured once more at the ISS as CRS-11. This placed Dragon in a league of just three other orbital capsules to have ever been reused. (Photo: Jack Fischer)

After suffering damage during integration, the satellite had to be repaired and the launch date delayed. As the delay lengthened, SpaceX jumped ahead of ULA and was scheduled to launch on Sunday, August 13th. Launch was initially scheduled for August 10th, pushed to August 14th, moved up to August 13th, and then moved back to August 14th as of yesterday. Access to space is never without drama, although this level of launch date bouncing is rather unusual.

As we get closer to the launch date, weÂ’ll see if SpaceX chooses to continue with the planned Monday attempt. After a month without East Coast launches* as a result of required range maintenance, it will be exciting to see the U.S. return to flight regardless of the launch date.

      La sagesse est plus prĂ©cieuse que l’or et la crainte envers JĂ©hovah est notre salut.
      La vraie sagesse de Dieu est un cadeau inestimable, car seul ceux qui obĂ©issent et suivent ces prĂ©ceptes en recoivent les bienfaits. En Psaume 111:10 dĂ©clare ceci: “La crainte de JĂ©hovah est le commencement de la sagesse.”
      Qu’est-ce que cela veut dire? La sagesse est la capacitĂ© d’utiliser efficacement sa connaissance et son intelligence pour rĂ©soudre un problĂšme, Ă©viter un danger, atteindre un objectif. Elle sous-entend un bon jugement. Le commencement, la premiĂšre partie, le fondement de cette sagesse, c’est la crainte de JĂ©hovah. Pourquoi cela? Bien que toute crĂ©ation est l’Ɠuvre de ses mains et dĂ©pend de lui. Il a accordĂ© aux humains le libre arbitre, mais pas la facultĂ© de diriger leurs pas avec succĂšs sans tenir compte de sa direction (JosuĂ© 24:15; JĂ©rĂ©mie 10:23). Nous ne connaĂźtrons le succĂšs durable qu’à la condition de bien saisir ces idĂ©es fondamentales sur la vie, et de nous y conformer. Si notre connaissance de JĂ©hovah nous donne la ferme conviction que la volontĂ© divine est promise au succĂšs, et qu’il tiendra sa promesse de rĂ©compenser ses fidĂšles, alors la crainte pieuse nous poussera Ă  agir sagement. — Proverbes 3:21-26; HĂ©breux 11:6.
      Prenons un exemple: Il y a quelques dizaines d’annĂ©es, un jeune homme frĂ©quentait l’universitĂ© de Saskatchewan, au Canada. Au programme de sa formation figurait la biologie, et on lui a enseignĂ© l’évolution. AprĂšs avoir Ă©tĂ© diplĂŽmĂ©, il s’est spĂ©cialisĂ© dans la physique nuclĂ©aire, profitant d’une bourse pour continuer ses Ă©tudes Ă  l’universitĂ© de Toronto. Au cours de ses Ă©tudes, il a constatĂ© dans la structure des atomes rĂ©vĂ©laient des tĂ©moignages stupĂ©fiants d’un ordre et d’une finalitĂ© extraordinaire . Mais personnes ne rĂ©pondait pas Ă  ces questions: Qui a conçu tout cela? Quand? Et pourquoi? Sans ces rĂ©ponses, pouvait-il utiliser sagement ses connaissances dans un monde remplis interrogations ? Qu’est-ce qui le guiderait? Le nationalisme? Le dĂ©sir de gratifications matĂ©rielles? Avait-il acquis la vraie sagesse?
      Peu aprĂšs avoir Ă©tĂ© diplĂŽmĂ©, cet homme ainsi que sa femme se sont mis Ă  Ă©tudier la Bible avec les TĂ©moins de JĂ©hovah. Dans la Parole de Dieu, ils ont peu Ă  peu trouvĂ© les rĂ©ponses qui leur manquaient. Ils ont appris Ă  connaĂźtre le CrĂ©ateur, JĂ©hovah Dieu. En Ă©tudiant ce qui est arrivĂ© Ă  MoĂŻse Ă  la mer Rouge, Ă  Daniel et Ă  ses compagnons Ă  Babylone, ils ont appris l’importance de craindre Dieu, et non les hommes (Exode 14:10-31; Daniel 3:8-30). Cette crainte pieuse mĂȘlĂ©e d’un amour sincĂšre pour JĂ©hovah a commencĂ© Ă  les animer. Rapidement, leur vie a changĂ©. Enfin cet homme connaissait Celui dont il avait Ă©tudiĂ© l’Ɠuvre en biologie. Il a progressivement compris le dessein de Celui dont il avait constatĂ© la sagesse dans ses cours de physique. Au lieu d’employer sa connaissance Ă  Ă©laborer des instruments de destruction, il a choisi, avec sa femme, d’aider autrui Ă  aimer Dieu et son prochain. Ils ont entrepris le service de prĂ©dicateurs du Royaume de Dieu Ă  plein temps. Par la suite, ils ont suivi les cours de Galaad, l’École biblique de la SociĂ©tĂ© Watchtower, et ont Ă©tĂ© nommĂ©s missionnaires.
      Bien entendu, tout le monde ne peut pas ĂȘtre missionnaire. Mais tous nous pouvons bĂ©nĂ©ficier de la sagesse fondĂ©e sur la crainte de JĂ©hovah. Si nous cultivons cette sagesse, nous ne consacrerons pas le meilleur de notre vie Ă  Ă©tudier les philosophies humaines, qui n’échafaudent que des suppositions sur le but de la vie. Nous nous appliquerons Ă  l’étude de la Bible, livre inspirĂ© de JĂ©hovah Dieu, la Source de la vie, celui qui peut nous donner la vie Ă©ternelle (Psaume 36:9; Colossiens 2:8). Au lieu de nous rendre esclaves d’un systĂšme commercial chancelant, au bord de la ruine, nous Ă©couterons JĂ©hovah, qui nous conseille de nous contenter de la nourriture et du vĂȘtement, et d’accorder Ă  nos relations avec lui la prioritĂ© dans notre existence (1 TimothĂ©e 6:8-12). Au lieu de nous comporter comme si notre avenir dĂ©pendait d’une belle situation dans le monde actuel, nous croirons la Parole de JĂ©hovah, qui nous affirme que le monde est en train de passer, de mĂȘme que le dĂ©sir du monde, alors que celui qui fait la volontĂ© divine demeure pour toujours. — 1 Jean 2:17.
      Dans le livre de Proverbes 16:16, Salomon nous encourage par cette dĂ©claration certaine: “AcquĂ©rir la sagesse [la sagesse qui commence par la crainte de JĂ©hovah], oh! combien cela vaut mieux que l’or! Et acquĂ©rir l’intelligence est prĂ©fĂ©rable Ă  l’argent.” PoussĂ©s par cette sagesse et cette intelligence, nous considĂ©rerons l’accomplissement de la volontĂ© de Dieu comme le premier centre d’intĂ©rĂȘt de notre vie. Et quelle activitĂ© Dieu a-t-il confiĂ©e Ă  ses TĂ©moins en cette pĂ©riode de l’histoire humaine? Faire connaĂźtre son Royaume par la prĂ©dication et aider les personnes sincĂšres Ă  devenir de vrais disciples de JĂ©sus Christ (Matthieu 24:14; 28:19, 20). Il s’agit d’une activitĂ© dont on retire une satisfaction vĂ©ritable et un grand bonheur. C’est donc Ă  propos que la Bible dit: “Heureux l’homme qui a trouvĂ© la sagesse, et l’homme qui acquiert le discernement.” — Proverbes 3:13.
      Elle nous retient de commettre le mal
      Un deuxiĂšme bienfait que nous procure la crainte de Dieu est qu’elle nous retient de commettre le mal. Celui qui respecte profondĂ©ment Dieu ne dĂ©termine pas par lui-mĂȘme ce qui est bien et mal. Il ne tient pas pour mauvais ce que Dieu dĂ©clare bon, ni ne considĂšre comme bon ce que Dieu dĂ©clare mauvais (Psaume 37:1, 27; ÉsaĂŻe 5:20, 21). De plus, celui que motive la crainte pieuse ne se contente pas de savoir ce que JĂ©hovah dĂ©clare bon ou mauvais. Une telle personne aime ce que JĂ©hovah aime et elle hait ce que JĂ©hovah hait. En consĂ©quence, elle agit en harmonie avec les prĂ©ceptes divins. Ainsi, comme le dit Proverbes 16:6, “par la crainte de JĂ©hovah, on se dĂ©tourne du mal”. Cette crainte pieuse devient une motivation puissante qui permet d’atteindre des rĂ©sultats qu’on n’obtiendrait pas mĂȘme si une personne commence tout juste Ă  l’éprouver, la crainte pieuse peut lui donner le courage de ne pas faire quelque chose qu’elle regretterait le restant de ses jours. Au Mexique, par exemple, une femme enceinte a demandĂ© Ă  une chrĂ©tienne TĂ©moin de JĂ©hovah ce qu’elle pensait de l’avortement. La chrĂ©tienne lui a lu plusieurs versets bibliques, puis lui a tenu ce raisonnement: “Pour le CrĂ©ateur, la vie est trĂšs importante, mĂȘme la vie de ceux qui ne sont pas encore nĂ©s.” (Exode 21:22, 23; Psaume 139:13-16). Des examens laissaient entendre que le bĂ©bĂ© serait anormal. NĂ©anmoins, aprĂšs ce qu’elle avait vu dans la Parole de Dieu, cette femme a dĂ©cidĂ© de garder son enfant. Son mĂ©decin a refusĂ© de la revoir, et son mari l’a menacĂ©e de la quitter, mais elle a tenu bon. Elle a finalement donnĂ© naissance Ă  une magnifique petite fille, normale et en bonne santĂ©. Par gratitude, elle a recherchĂ© les TĂ©moins et s’est mise Ă  Ă©tudier la Parole de Dieu avec eux. Moins d’un an aprĂšs, son mari et elle se faisaient baptiser. Quelques annĂ©es plus tard, Ă  une assemblĂ©e de district, tous deux ont Ă©tĂ© enchantĂ©s de rencontrer la chrĂ©tienne qui avait parlĂ© Ă  la femme la premiĂšre fois. Ils lui ont prĂ©sentĂ© leur jolie fillette de quatre ans. Incontestablement, le respect de Dieu et le dĂ©sir puissant de ne pas lui dĂ©plaire exercent une grande influence.
      La crainte pieuse peut nous garder d’un grand nombre de mauvaises actions (2 Corinthiens 7:1). CultivĂ©e avec soin, elle est capable d’aider quelqu’un Ă  mettre un terme Ă  des pĂ©chĂ©s cachĂ©s, connus de lui seul et de JĂ©hovah. Elle peut l’aider Ă  se libĂ©rer de la dĂ©pendance de l’alcool ou de la drogue. Un ancien droguĂ© d’Afrique du Sud a racontĂ©: “Au fur et Ă  mesure que j’apprenais Ă  connaĂźtre Dieu, la crainte de le dĂ©cevoir ou de lui dĂ©plaire grandissait en moi. Je savais qu’il m’observait, et je dĂ©sirais ardemment son approbation. Cela m’a incitĂ© Ă  me dĂ©barrasser de la drogue qui Ă©tait en ma possession en la jetant dans les toilettes.” La crainte pieuse a aidĂ© des milliers de personnes de la mĂȘme maniĂšre. — Proverbes 5:21; 15:3.
      La crainte salutaire de Dieu nous prĂ©serve Ă©galement de la crainte de l’homme. La plupart des humains connaissent, Ă  des degrĂ©s divers, la crainte de l’homme. Les apĂŽtres de JĂ©sus Christ l’ont abandonnĂ© et se sont enfuis lorsque les soldats se sont emparĂ©s de lui dans le jardin de GethsĂ©manĂ©. Plus tard, dans la cour du grand prĂȘtre, dĂ©sarçonnĂ© et en proie Ă  la crainte, Pierre a niĂ© faire partie des disciples de JĂ©sus et mĂȘme le connaĂźtre (Marc 14:48-50, 66-72; Jean 18:15-27). Mais grĂące Ă  l’aide qu’ils ont reçue, les apĂŽtres ont retrouvĂ© leur Ă©quilibre spirituel. Par contre, aux jours du roi JĂ©hoĂŻakim, Urie, fils de SchĂ©maĂŻah, fut terrassĂ© par la crainte au point d’abandonner son service de prophĂšte de JĂ©hovah et de fuir le pays, ce qui ne l’empĂȘcha pas d’ĂȘtre capturĂ© et tuĂ©. — JĂ©rĂ©mie 26:20-23.
      Comment vaincre la crainte de l’homme? 
      AprĂšs nous avoir prĂ©venus que “trembler devant les hommes, voilĂ  ce qui tend un piĂšge”, Proverbes 29:25 ajoute: “Mais celui qui se confie en JĂ©hovah sera protĂ©gĂ©.” La rĂ©ponse tient donc dans la confiance en JĂ©hovah. Cette confiance s’appuie sur la connaissance et l’expĂ©rience. L’étude de sa Parole nous dĂ©montre que les voies de JĂ©hovah sont droites. Nous dĂ©couvrons des Ă©vĂ©nements attestant qu’il est digne de confiance, que ses promesses sont sĂ»res (y compris celle de la rĂ©surrection), qu’il est amour et qu’il est tout-puissant. Lorsqu’ensuite nous agissons conformĂ©ment Ă  cette connaissance, accomplissant ce que JĂ©hovah demande et rejetant fermement ce qu’il condamne, nous commençons Ă  constater dans notre propre cas qu’il prend soin de ses serviteurs avec amour et que l’on peut compter sur lui. Nous acquĂ©rons personnellement la certitude que sa puissance est Ă  l’Ɠuvre pour que s’accomplisse sa volontĂ©. Notre confiance en lui s’accroĂźt, de mĂȘme que notre amour pour lui et notre dĂ©sir sincĂšre de ne pas lui dĂ©plaire. Cette confiance est bĂątie sur un fondement solide. Elle est un rempart contre la crainte de l’homme.
      Notre confiance en JĂ©hovah, alliĂ©e Ă  la crainte pieuse, nous rendra fermes en faveur du bien dans le cas oĂč un employeur menacerait de nous renvoyer si nous refusions de participer Ă  des pratiques commerciales malhonnĂȘtes (voir MichĂ©e 6:11, 12). GrĂące Ă  cette crainte pieuse, des milliers de chrĂ©tiens persĂ©vĂšrent dans le vrai culte malgrĂ© l’opposition de membres de leur famille. Elle donne aussi aux jeunes le courage de se faire connaĂźtre comme TĂ©moins de JĂ©hovah Ă  l’école, et elle les affermit face aux moqueries de leurs camarades de classe qui mĂ©prisent les principes bibliques. Ainsi, une adolescente TĂ©moin de JĂ©hovah a dit: “Ce qu’ils pensent m’est bien Ă©gal. L’important, c’est ce que pense JĂ©hovah.”
      La mĂȘme conviction donne aux vrais chrĂ©tiens la force de rester attachĂ©s aux voies de JĂ©hovah lorsque leur vie est en jeu. Ils savent qu’ils risquent d’ĂȘtre persĂ©cutĂ©s par le monde. Ils sont conscients que les apĂŽtres ont Ă©tĂ© fouettĂ©s et que mĂȘme JĂ©sus Christ a Ă©tĂ© frappĂ© et tuĂ© par des hommes mĂ©chants (Marc 14:65; 15:15-39; Actes 5:40; voir aussi Daniel 3:16-18). Mais les serviteurs de JĂ©hovah sont assurĂ©s qu’il peut leur donner la force d’endurer, qu’avec son aide ils peuvent remporter la victoire, que JĂ©hovah rĂ©compensera sans faute ses fidĂšles, si besoin en les ressuscitant dans son monde nouveau. Leur amour pour Dieu ajoutĂ© Ă  la crainte pieuse les pousse puissamment Ă  Ă©viter toute action qui pourrait lui dĂ©plaire.
      C’est parce qu’ils Ă©taient animĂ©s d’une telle motivation que les TĂ©moins de JĂ©hovah ont supportĂ© les horreurs des camps de concentration nazis dans les annĂ©es 30 et 40. Ils ont pris Ă  cƓur le conseil de JĂ©sus consignĂ© en Luc 12:4, 5: “D’autre part, je vous le dis Ă  vous, mes amis: Ne craignez pas ceux qui tuent le corps, et qui aprĂšs cela ne peuvent rien faire de plus. Mais je vais vous indiquer qui vous devez craindre: craignez celui qui, aprĂšs avoir tuĂ©, a le pouvoir de jeter dans la GĂ©henne. Oui, je vous le dis, Celui-lĂ , craignez-le.” Par exemple, Gustav Auschner, un TĂ©moin qui avait Ă©tĂ© internĂ© dans le camp de concentration de Sachsenhausen, a Ă©crit plus tard: ‘Les SS ont exĂ©cutĂ© August Dickmann et ont menacĂ© de nous passer tous par les armes si nous refusions de signer un document par lequel nous abjurions notre foi. Pas un seul n’a signĂ©. Notre crainte de dĂ©plaire Ă  JĂ©hovah Ă©tait plus forte que la crainte de leurs balles.’ La crainte de l’homme mĂšne aux compromis, mais la crainte de Dieu nous affermit pour faire le bien.
      La préservation de la vie
      NoĂ© a connu les derniers jours du monde antĂ©diluvien. JĂ©hovah avait dĂ©cidĂ© de dĂ©truire le monde d’alors en raison de la mĂ©chancetĂ© des humains. Toutefois, en attendant, NoĂ© a vĂ©cu dans un monde oĂč rĂ©gnaient la violence, l’immoralitĂ© sexuelle choquante et le mĂ©pris de la volontĂ© divine. NoĂ© a prĂȘchĂ© la justice, et pourtant “ils ne s’aperçurent de rien jusqu’à ce que le dĂ©luge vĂźnt et les emportĂąt tous”. (Matthieu 24:39.) NoĂ© n’a cependant pas renoncĂ© Ă  l’activitĂ© que Dieu lui avait confiĂ©e. Il fit “selon tout ce que Dieu lui avait ordonnĂ©. Ainsi fit-il”. (GenĂšse 6:22.) Qu’est-ce qui a permis Ă  NoĂ©, annĂ©e aprĂšs annĂ©e et jusqu’au dĂ©luge, de toujours agir comme il convenait? HĂ©breux 11:7 rĂ©pond: “Par la foi, NoĂ©, divinement averti de choses qu’on ne voyait pas encore, fit montre d’une crainte pieuse.” Pour cette raison, sa femme, ses fils, leurs femmes et lui ont Ă©tĂ© sauvĂ©s du dĂ©luge.
       Notre Ă©poque ressemble de bien des maniĂšres Ă  celle de NoĂ© (Luc 17:26, 27). De nouveau un avertissement est lancĂ©. RĂ©vĂ©lation 14:6, 7 parle d’un ange qui vole au milieu du ciel et invite les gens de toute nation et tribu et langue Ă  ‘craindre Dieu et Ă  lui donner gloire’. Quel que puisse ĂȘtre le comportement du monde autour de vous, obĂ©issez Ă  ces paroles, puis transmettez l’invitation Ă  autrui. À l’instar de NoĂ©, agissons avec foi et manifestons une crainte pieuse. Par cela, des vies peuvent ĂȘtre sauvĂ©es: la vĂŽtre et celle de nombre de vos semblables. Lorsque nous considĂ©rons les bienfaits dont profitent ceux qui craignent le vrai Dieu, nous ne pouvons que souscrire aux paroles du psalmiste divinement inspirĂ© qui chanta: 
      “Heureux est l’homme qui craint JĂ©hovah, dans les commandements de qui il prend grand plaisir!” — Psaume 112:1.
