  1. Php.1:23 —From what “two things” was Paul under pressure, and what “releasing” did he desire? 

    1. JW Insider

      JW Insider

      To be or not to be. To die or not to die.

      It's a bit like Shakespeare put it, except that Paul was not suicidal and had a lot more faith in the afterlife:

      1. To be, or not to be, that is the question:
      2. Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
      3. The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
      4. Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
      5. And by opposing end them. To die—to sleep,
      6. No more; and by a sleep to say we end
      7. The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
      8. That flesh is heir to: 'tis a consummation
      9. Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;
      10. To sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there's the rub:
      11. For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
      12. When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
      13. Must give us pause—there's the respect
      14. That makes calamity of so long life.
      15. For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
      16. Th'oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely,
      17. The pangs of dispriz'd love, the law's delay,
      18. The insolence of office, and the spurns
      19. That patient merit of th'unworthy takes,
      20. When he himself might his quietus make
      21. With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear,
      22. To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
      23. But that the dread of something after death,
      24. The undiscovere'd country, from whose bourn
      25. No traveller returns, puzzles the will,
      26. And makes us rather bear those ills we have
      27. Than fly to others that we know not of?
      28. Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
      29. And thus the native hue of resolution
      30. Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
      31. And enterprises of great pitch and moment
      32. With this regard their currents turn awry
      33. And lose the name of action.

  2. Absolutely TTH! I see from your comment that you understand the significance of the heightened understanding of these things. We do not become angry and attack others simply because what is being discussed does not hold any personal interest. However, you are certainly correct about Jesus' words, 'what I say to you, -(let the reader use discernment)*my comment - I say to ALL, keep on the watch!'
  3. Oh, Ok. I misunderstood the joke. Was my explanation clear. I tried to keep my thoughts together long enough to type them out. This was something that just dawned on me because of comments in recent WT studies. I realized that I did not fully understand those scriptures in 1 Thess. 5. The JW Library and other web sites by WT Society makes it easy to research the scriptures thoroughly. Up to the present understanding. I appreciate your comments.
  4. #1 We will not know the "day or the hour" until it occurs, but we have enough evidence to see that we are, as David Shafer said "right on the cusp of the Great Tribulation #2 I would never add anything to an illustration developed by the "faithful and discreet slave" to help us to understand what Jesus Christ is saying to us NOW.
  5. #1. Paul did not want congregation members to be uninformed about those who were sleeping in death (vs.13) God would resurrect them just as he did Jesus - in time. Even Jesus was nonexistent for a short time. These ones, although anointed with a valid heavenly hope had to die must wait in death as did Paul. However, when Christ came as King in 1914, those who were dead in union with Christ rose first (vs. 16). Anointed Christians alive as humans on earth at that time, would not be instantly raised to heaven prior to these ones who have been asleep for so long in death. (vs. 15b: that we the living who survive to the presence of the Lord will in no way precede those who have fallen asleep in death.) : this is the beginning of the first part of "this generation" that Jesus said "would not pass away, until all these things occur"; which includes the final battle, Armageddon, in which ALL of the 144,000 resurrected sons of God WILL participate in. When these ones die during Christ's presence they are resurrected, "in a moment, in the blink of an eye" and join the others who had been sleeping for so long as spirit creatures in the Kingdom. At some point prior to Armageddon "17 Afterward we the living who are surviving will, together with them, be caught away in cloudsw to meet the Lordx in the air; and thus we will always be with the Lord." This is the remnant of the anointed congregation, which will include the second part of "this generation" that did NOT pass away until all these things occurred. This group, of which all of the Governing Body is a part of is, as Brother Splane said "is certainly showing their age."
  6. I have just gotten online for today and I did not realize that this firestorm had erupted. I will be back on when I get something to eat. Be back soon!...Tom (Bubba)

      With a "stretch" like that, you have lost all credibility on any subject.
