  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.

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

      yeah....about a 4,999,999.75 stretch wouldn't you say

  3. 13  Moreover, brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant* about those who are sleeping in death,q so that you may not sorrow as the rest do who have no hope.r 14  For if we have faith that Jesus died and rose again,s so too God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep in death through Jesus.t 15  For this is what we tell you by Jehovah’s* word, that we the living who survive to the presence of the Lord will in no way precede those who have fallen asleep in death; 16  because the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a commanding call, with an archangel’su voice and with God’s trumpet, and those who are dead in union with Christ will rise first.v 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.y 18  So keep...

  4. A timeline of “this generation”

     

    • What are “all these things”?

    • How does Exodus 1:6 help us to understand the meaning of “generation”?

    • To what particular generation was Jesus referring?

    • What two groups make up “this generation”?

    • How do Jesus’ words indicate that we are living deep in the time of the end?

  5. As persecution increases in places like Russia, we are “in no way being frightened” by our opponents. We trust that Jehovah will continue to give all of us what we need to endure until his great day of salvation comes.—Philippians 1:28

  6. (Ecclesiastes 7:12) "For wisdom is a protection just as money is a protection, but the advantage of knowledge is this: Wisdom preserves the life of its owner. . ."

    Since April 20, 2017, when the Russian Supreme Court effectively banned the worship of Jehovah’s Witnesses in the country, our brothers and sisters have faced relentless persecution and imprisonment. Authorities have also progressively seized 131 of the properties owned by Jehovah’s Witnesses, with an additional 60 properties subject to confiscation. The total value of the properties is estimated to be over $57 million.

    We pray that our brothers and sisters in Russia continue to be courageous as they refuse to let raids, arrests, or confiscation of meeting places stop them from worshipping Jehovah “with spirit and truth.”—John 4:23.

    For any who may be inclined to fault the "faithful and discreet slave" for the ownership of costly real estate holdings please remember the worldwide responsibility that they have; and their responsibility is to the advancement of true worship which will ultimately produce the new world of righteousness. Gone will be the ridiculers and the persecutors who attempt to stand in their way.
