Recommended Posts

But @James Thomas Rook Jr.  ....they can simply turn to the book of Job and be encouraged by reading about all the trials Job endured and how Jehovah lovingly solved all his problems in the end. For instance he replaced all of Job's 10 children who died when the family house collapsed on them. Job's already aged wife, had the privilege of spending at least the next 10-15 years of her life, pregnant so Jehovah could fix the tragedy by giving them10 new children....what a logical solution and what blessing it was for all concerned.

P.S I understand that the new "Silver Sword" edition of the New World Translation, also serves as a flotation device.

My understanding is if they establish a relief fund, the money has to be spend for that purpose without discrimination; they will have to include the dreaded "worldly people" in the effort.

If they do it just for general funds, then they can do whatever they want with the $$$$.

Oh and - did we tell you that SOME of your donations might be going to pay out child abuse lawsuits instead of hurricane victims ? Sorry if we failed to mention that. We're imperfect- so don't hold it against us.

Sending our warm Christian love,

your brothers WTB&S. "

I got a good belly laugh out of THAT one.  But then again, my grandmother had 11 children, and cried when she couldn't have more ... perhaps men are not supposed to understand how women think.

Job's wife did all that without dying ... many women have died having their first child.

      Watchtower volunteers restore a historic building free of charge.
      🕊💕👑💕🕊
      Gardiner City Hall arranged by the watchtower volunteers
      The Historic City Hall of Gardiner has just received a change of face from the volunteers of the watchtower society. In a civic demonstration, the tax-exempt religious organization provided free labor to the city to wash, repair, bait and paint the entire exterior of the building.
      "they did an amazing job", said the mayor of the city, Marybeth Majestic, at the 8 August meeting.
      Built in 1875 as a single-room school and expanded in 1895, the Queen Anne style structure continued to serve on Gardiner as a primary school until 1981. was added to the national register of historic places in 2000 and He suffered a major renovation in 2005 the watchtower project repainted the old white window in a more historically authentic forest seen in ancient photographs
      Majestic noted that the city council remained open to the public during the normal hours of service during the project. "his security measures were max", he said. She estimated that Gardiner's town hall would have had to pay about $ 40.000 for the job if the workforce had not been donated. About $ 6000 in the cost of materials were covered by a dedicated fund that the city had booked several years ago for maintenance and repairs to the city council.
      " I'm very grateful to our friends and neighbors of watchtower for an amazing job done."

    • @JW Insider Yes, I firmly believe that the Bible identifies Russia as the king of the north and I am equally convinced that it is the small horn that becomes great and that it drops three kings (what are the kings?) And I would have so many other things to say . If you want, you can go to see the article explaining the scriptural reasons because the king of the north is Russia (and he is the last king to remain on earth before the armageddon battle) you can read this article

    • Use your equipment, and the sword, the Bible to ward off Satan's attacks. Their will be many more coming!  ⚔️🛡📖🛡⚔️ (Eph 6:10-19)
      "Finally, go on acquiring power in the Lord and in the mightiness of his strength. 11 Put on the complete suit of armor from God so that you may be able to stand firm against the crafty acts of the Devil; 12 because we have a struggle, not against blood and flesh, but against the governments, against the authorities, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places. 13 For this reason take up the complete suit of armor from God, so that you may be able to resist in the wicked day and, after you have accomplished everything, to stand firm. 14 Stand firm, therefore, with the belt of truth fastened around your waist, wearing the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having your feet shod in readiness to declare the good news of peace. 16 Besides all of this, take up the large shield of faith, with which you will be able to extinguish all the wicked one’s burning arrows. 17 Also, accept the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit, that is, God’s word, 18 while with every form of prayer and supplication you carry on prayer on every occasion in spirit. And to that end stay awake, constantly making supplication in behalf of all the holy ones."
    • Adorable as they are, little children clearly lack the maturity, experience, and wisdom generally associated with age.  Yet, Jesus told his disciples: “Unless you become as young children, you will by no means enter into the kingdom.”  What did Jesus mean? What qualities do young children possess that adults do well to imitate? Well, think how timid and trusting a child is! How free of rivalry and malice! How submissive and unassuming!  Yes, a little child can beautifully epitomize the godly quality of Humility. Jesus’ point is clear. All of us must cultivate childlike humility if we are to inherit God’s Kingdom. - Matthew 18:3.

    • Have Tender Affection for One Another” - “Jehovah Is Very Tender in Affection” Unpleasant experiences may have left some with the feeling that showing tender affection would lead only to further disappointment.  It takes courage and strong faith for them to open their heart to others once again. But they should never forget that Jehovah “is not far off from each one of us.” He invites us to draw close to him. (Acts 17:27; James 4:8)  He also understands our fear of being hurt, and he promises to stand by us and help us. The psalmist David assures us: “Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.”—Psalm 34:18 An intimate friendship with Jehovah is the most important relationship we can cultivate. But is such a bond really possible? Yes.  The Bible reveals how very close righteous men and women felt to our heavenly Father. Their warm expressions have been preserved to give us confidence that we too can draw close to Jehovah.—Psalms 23, 34, 139; John 16:27; Romans 15:4 Jehovah’s requirements for intimacy with him are within the reach of everyone. “O Jehovah, who will be a guest in your tent?” asked David. “He who is walking faultlessly and practicing righteousness and speaking the truth in his heart.” (Psalm 15:1, 2; 25:14)  As we see that serving God produces good fruit and wins us his guidance and protection, we will come to know that “Jehovah is very tender in affection.”—James 5:11 How blessed we are that Jehovah desires to have such a personal relationship with imperfect humans!  Should we not then display tender affection for one another? With Jehovah’s help, each one of us can contribute to and enjoy the tender affection that is characteristic of our Christian brotherhood.  Under God’s Kingdom, everyone on earth will share in this affection forever.
