  1. Another nice scripture to add referring to Jesus after his resurrection to heaven: (1 Timothy 6:16) the one alone having immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To him be honor and eternal might. Amen.
  2. Nice comment but you should put in quotations what the Watchtower actually said.
  3. *** Bible Citations *** 23 By faith Moses was hid by his parents for three months after his birth, because they saw that the young child was beautiful and they did not fear the order of the king. 24 By faith Moses, when grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharʹaoh’s daughter, 25 choosing to be mistreated with the people of God rather than to have the temporary enjoyment of sin, 26 because he considered the reproach of the Christ to be riches greater than the treasures of Egypt, for he looked intently toward the payment of the reward. 27 By faith he left Egypt, but not fearing the anger of the king, for he continued steadfast as seeing the One who is invisible. 28 By faith he observed the Passover and the splashing of the blood, so that the destroyer might not harm their firstborn. 29 By faith they passed through the Red Sea as on dry land, but when the Egyptians attempted it, they were swallowed up.
  4. Those outside the congregation show it like that too. Good that you included those in the congregation.
  5. English NOVEMBER 11, 2014 HONDURAS Fatal Bus Accident in Honduras On the morning of October 31, 2014, a bus transporting 57 Jehovah’s Witnesses, who had volunteered to provide Bible education in Las Flores Lempira, crashed en route from San Carlos Choloma. The accident resulted in the death of the commercial bus driver and thirteen Witness passengers, which included two fourteen-year-old girls and an eight-year-old girl. The 44 surviving Witnesses were taken to the hospital for examination. Only two required extensive medical care but have since been released. Fellow worshippers are providing comfort and practical assistance. On November 1, 2014, the first funeral was held in Choloma for nine of the victims who died in the crash. Some 3,000 people attended. José Castillo, a spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses in Honduras, stated: “We appreciate the outpouring of support from the community and the various agencies that have come to the aid of those affected by this tragedy.” -- JW.org website As you will see from the quote from our website above there were going preaching not to a convention. I article said they "had volunteered to provide Bible education in Las Flores Lempira". They were probably going to outlying territory that is seldom worked.
  6. We have to pray, meditate and make out minds over - not just when we are at meetings, all the time. Earnest effort is required at all times.
  7. Re Honduras, I don't think they were going to a convention - I think they were going to work outlying territory. But check it.
  8. Hope the coffee was not hot. ======= Just looked up Plankton: plank·ton /ˈplaNGktən/ Learn to pronounce noun the small and microscopic organisms drifting or floating in the sea or fresh water, consisting chiefly of diatoms, protozoans, small crustaceans, and the eggs and larval stages of larger animals. Many animals are adapted to feed on plankton, especially by filtering the water. "prawns change their diet from plant plankton to animal plankton". ===== Yes, and there is sea weed and plant plankton. Even with plankton, these are small organisms, very small crustaceans, etc. So whales don't have to eat other whales, dolphins, sharks, etc. Your comment, please.
  9. And when you tell them that this would be the diet of animals in the new system, they say that one can look at the carnivorous teeth and see that the animals were made to eat meat. But those teeth can rip apart tree branches and other hard materials too, and grip anything they need to pull. I like to put Genesis 1:29, 30 and Isaiah 11: 6,7,and 9 to show that the animals will no longer eat one another or people, but people always find fault with it. *** Bible Citations *** (Isaiah 11: 6-7) 6 The wolf will reside for a while with the lamb, And with the young goat the leopard will lie down, And the calf and the lion and the fattened animal will all be together; And a little boy will lead them. 7 The cow and the bear will feed together, And their young will lie down together. The lion will eat straw like the bull.
  10. *** it-1 p. 596 Death *** Cause of Death in Humans. The first reference to death in the Scriptures occurs at Genesis 2:16, 17 in God’s command to the first man concerning the eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and bad, violation of which command would result in death. (See NW ftn.) However, death among animals as a natural process was evidently already in effect, since they are passed over completely in the Biblical presentation of the introduction of death into the human family. (Compare 2Pe 2:12.) The gravity of God’s warning about the death penalty for disobedience would therefore be understandable to his human son, Adam. Adam’s disobedience to his Creator brought death to him. (Ge 3:19; Jas 1:14, 15) Thereafter, Adam’s sin and its consequence, death, spread to all men.—Ro 5:12; 6:23. (2 Peter 2:12) But these men, like unreasoning animals that act on instinct and are born to be caught and destroyed, speak abusively about things of which they are ignorant. They will suffer destruction brought on by their own destructive course,
  11. Sounds like a good idea. However, get a good breakfast - it is very important. The body needs the food when we are facing the pressures of the day not late in the evening. It dumps most of the stuff then and we put on weight. Before 4.00 p.m. seems OK, but get some healthy snacks in between.
  12. Things we have to learn about the animals: Adam was in the garden several years before Eve was created. He saw animals dying and knew about death. Therefore he understood what would happen if he disobeyed. Why did Jehovah not give or promise everlasting life to animals although they did not sin? Why did not Jesus die for animals? ------ (Exodus 21:28-32) 28 “If a bull gores a man or a woman and that one dies, the bull must be stoned to death and its meat is not to be eaten; but the owner of the bull is free from punishment. 29 But if a bull was in the habit of goring and its owner had been warned but he would not keep it under guard and it killed a man or a woman, the bull is to be stoned and its owner is also to be put to death. 30 If a ransom is imposed on him, he must give as the redemption price for his life all that may be imposed on him. 31 Whether it gored a son or a daughter, it is to be done to the bull’s owner according to this judicial decision. 32 If the bull gored a slave man or a slave girl, he will give the price of 30 shekels to that one’s master, and the bull will be stoned to death. (Accounting with animals? but judgement had to be executed by man. Bull will not stone itself to death.)
