Like the Days of Noah...
BroRando posted a topic in Jehovah’s Witnesses's TopicsWhat to expect? You can expect a ton of persons to become immediately interested in the Bible, once we stop offering New Bible Studies. The time to think about it a little longer will have come to its end. "And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come." (Matthew 24:14) Jesus in private told his disciples, "For just as the days of Noah were, so the presence of the Son of man will be. For as they were in those days before the Flood, eating and drinking, men marrying and women being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and they took no note until the Flood came and swept them all away, so the presence of the Son of man will be." (Matthew 24:37-39) Notice Jesus compared the days of Noah to his Presence, they took no note until the Flood came and swept them all away. Therefore, we can conclude that both Prophecies are 'timed events'. Time and again Jesus kept reminding his disciples just as the days of Noah were, so the presence of the Son of man will be. How long were the days of Noah? Then Jehovah said: “My spirit will not tolerate man indefinitely, because he is only flesh. Accordingly, his days will amount to 120 years.” (Genesis 6:3) "Jehovah will cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you. They will attack you from one direction, but they will flee from you in seven different directions. Jehovah will decree for you a blessing on your storehouses and every undertaking of yours, and he will certainly bless you in the land that Jehovah your God is giving you. Jehovah will establish you as a holy people to himself, just as he swore to you, because you continue to keep the commandments of Jehovah your God and walk in his ways. All the peoples of the earth will have to see that Jehovah’s name has been called upon you, and they will be afraid of you." (Deuteronomy 28:7-10) Read more...
How do you start a flood?
James Thomas Rook Jr. posted a topic in Jehovah’s Witnesses's TopicsWhat a GREAT time to be a flood insurance company ...... collect premiums for 60 years ... then go BANKRUPT! Two guys sitting in lawn chairs on the beach in Miami.... First one says "I retired with MILLIONS after my factory burned down." Second one says "I retired with BILLIONS after MY business was flooded out." First one replies " Hmmm... how do you start a flood?" *ka-ching!" Ok... moving right along ... not that the Society has "acquired" full responsibility for all Kingdom Halls, including the ones destroyed in Houston and Southern Texas, and the prices of wood and raw materials will be short for five years, and prices for materials and labor will go up dramatically, people trying to rebuild EVERYTHING (almost) ... can we expect the Society to pour BILLIONS of dollars into the reconstruction of its South Texas and Coastal Louisiana property in the foreseeable future? This might be a good place to put articles and thoughts of EVERY nature pertaining to the catastrophe in South Texas.

An estimated four million people have been left without drinking water and, according to police reports, at least one person has been killed as a result of the floods so far.
