      I was in conversation with an elder last week (or maybe two weeks ago) and I don't quite know how we got onto the topic but we started talking about suicide. I was a bit surprised when he said "But don't commit suicide or you will not get a resurrection". 
      I was wondering where exactly this information comes from. Having recovered from the shock, I have since emailed this elder and got no response. I have looked on JW Org and read a couple of older articles on there, but they seemed to say that it is or was not their place to judge, which i agree with. 
      So, is there 'new light' on the subject of suicide ? If so where does this new light come from ? And what scriptures back up this 'new light' ?
      I will willingly read any recent articles that are passed on to me, as this latest information, if it is true, i find disturbing. I know of many people that have committed suicide, both inside and outside of the Jehovah's Witnesses Organisation.

      A failure is not a loss. It could be a gain...if you learn, change, and grow from it. 
       23 ".....you should continue to be made new..."
      (Ephesians 4:23)
    • By Bible Speaks
      4 "The king then said to me: “What is it that you are seeking?” At once I prayed to the God of the heavens."
      (Nehemiah 2:4)
      Nehemiah, governor of the Jews in the fifth century B.C.E., did his best to please God. He spearheaded the rebuilding of Jerusalem’s walls despite enemy opposition. 
      He enforced God’s Law, cared for the oppressed, and sought to build up the faith of his fellow Israelites. 
      Did God notice the good that this faithful man had done? Did Nehemiah have Jehovah’s approval? We can discern the answers in the closing words of the book that bears his name.
      Nehemiah prays: “Do remember me, O my God, for good.”
      Is Nehemiah afraid that his good deeds have gone unnoticed by God or that God will forget about him? No. Nehemiah is no doubt aware of what earlier Bible writers have said about Jehovah’s keen interest in his faithful worshippers and their good deeds. (Exodus 32:32, 33; Psalm 56:8) 
      What, then, is he asking God to do? One reference work notes that the Hebrew term translated “remember” implies “the affection of the mind and the action which accompanies recollection.” With full faith in the power of prayer, Nehemiah is asking God to remember him with affection and to bless him.—Nehemiah 2:4.
      Will Jehovah answer Nehemiah’s prayer for remembrance? In one respect, he already has. The very fact that Jehovah saw fit to have a permanent record made of Nehemiah’s prayer, making it part of the inspired Scriptures, assures us that he remembers Nehemiah with affection. But the “Hearer of prayer” will do more to answer Nehemiah’s heartfelt request.—Psalm 65:2.

      *** it-2 p. 7 Jehovah ***
      The Codex Leningrad B 19A, of the 11th century C.E., vowel points the Tetragrammaton to read Yehwahʹ, Yehwihʹ, and Yeho·wahʹ. Ginsburg’s edition of the Masoretic text vowel points the divine name to read Yeho·wahʹ. (Ge 3:14, ftn) Hebrew scholars generally favor “Yahweh” as the most likely pronunciation. They point out that the abbreviated form of the name is Yah (Jah in the Latinized form), as at Psalm 89:8 and in the expression Ha·lelu-Yahʹ (meaning “Praise Jah, you people!”). (Ps 104:35; 150:1, 6) Also, the forms Yehohʹ, Yoh, Yah, and Yaʹhu, found in the Hebrew spelling of the names Jehoshaphat, Joshaphat, Shephatiah, and others, can all be derived from Yahweh. Greek transliterations of the name by early Christian writers point in a somewhat similar direction with spellings such as I·a·beʹ and I·a·ou·eʹ, which, as pronounced in Greek, resemble Yahweh. Still, there is by no means unanimity among scholars on the subject, some favoring yet other pronunciations, such as “Yahuwa,” “Yahuah,” or “Yehuah.”
      Since certainty of pronunciation is not now attainable, there seems to be no reason for abandoning in English the well-known form “Jehovah” in favor of some other suggested pronunciation. If such a change were made, then, to be consistent, changes should be made in the spelling and pronunciation of a host of other names found in the Scriptures: Jeremiah would be changed to Yir·meyahʹ, Isaiah would become Yeshaʽ·yaʹhu, and Jesus would be either Yehoh·shuʹaʽ (as in Hebrew) or I·e·sousʹ (as in Greek). The purpose of words is to transmit thoughts; in English the name Jehovah identifies the true God, transmitting this thought more satisfactorily today than any of the suggested substitutes.

      “HOW WILL CHANGE COME?”

      POSTED ON MAY 31, 2020BY CONTRIBUTORPOSTED IN IN THE NEWSTAGGED GEORGE FLOYD, POLICE, PROTESTS, RACIAL EQUALITY, THE ANSWEREDIT In a few short minutes you can easily understand what the near future holds as described by men who were inspired by God to describe it to you.
      Every race has individuals who hate. Will protesting bring any real change? Why do people hate seeing how George Floyd was murdered? Because God instilled in every human the desire for equality, a desire for a long peaceful life without pain and suffering. Would God instill that in humans if they could never live to enjoy it? NO, God’s purpose is for humans to live forever on a paradisaic Earth as they enjoy a relationship with Him and many others who will live in Peace and Security. Jehovah God does not see us as Black, White, Asian or Indian, Jehovah sees us as we are inside our minds, the inner person. Our bodies are only the generator that gives the mind power to think, to interact with our God. Jehovah created every race, in the proper light, we can see that this beautiful variety is a loving provision of God. Adam and Eve interrupted God’s Timeline for an Edenic Earth, but they did not force God to change His purpose for the Earth and humans. Now that billions live on Earth, How will people who hate others be singled out and removed from society? For six thousand years they have murdered their brothers, over and over again! One of the first men born on Earth murdered his own brother! How will change come? How can men like that be sorted out and how can violence be stopped?
      The Only Almighty God, Jehovah, inspired the Bible to give you the answer. What does the Bible say will happen to bring real change, Equality, Peace on Earth for every man, woman and child?
      Instead of changing the world,while on Earth, Jesus taught his followers to pray for God’s solution. Matthew 6:9,10 “You must pray, then, this way:“‘Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified.10 Let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also on earth.”” He told them there would come a “special day”, a day that was set by his Heavenly Father Jehovah. Matthew 24:36 states “Concerning that day and hour nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens nor the Son, but only the Father”. What will occur on that day? Earlier in the chapter Jesus stated :
      FIRST: VS:14 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.
      SECOND: VS:21 for then there will be great tribulation such as has not occurred since the world’s beginning until now, no, nor will occur again.
      THIRD VS:29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.30 Then the sign of the Son of man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will beat themselves in grief, and they will see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.31 And he will send out his angels with a great trumpet sound, and they will gather his chosen ones together from the four winds, from one extremity of the heavens to their other extremity.
      Jesus taught his followers that God would set up a “Government in Heaven”(God’s Kingdom) that will change the way people live on Earth. This is the “Good News”. Jesus taught them that the Good News would be preached in all the inhabited Earth just before the great tribulation and then the “Great Day of God Almighty”.
      Why did the Good News have to be preached Earthwide? The Good News has to sides: ONE it comforts every one who seeks God’s Kingdom with real hope that is given us by God Himself: Hope they may never die, Hope they will have their body, health, youth and vigor restored, Hope they will see their dead loved ones resurrected here to life again, Hope they will be given their own land on which to build their own homes and gardens, Hope they will be able to travel the whole Earth and enjoy all that God has created for them to enjoy, Hope they will come to know the intimate person of God in even greater ways and be involved in doing His will forever! TWO: the Good News is used by God to warn every person who would turn away from His Will. This is just, on His part, to warn every adult before he ends their consciousness of life. He will judge every adult on Earth by their response to this Good News and their past and current actions and attitudes, then at His Command many angels will descend from Heaven ,at the hands of one of His mighty angels most of Earths inhabitants will be destroyed. See Matthew 13:36-43:
      FOURTH: CHAPTER 13:36 Then after dismissing the crowds, he went into the house. His disciples came to him and said: “Explain to us the illustration of the weeds in the field.”37 In response he said: “The sower of the fine seed is the Son of man;38 the field is the world. As for the fine seed, these are the sons of the Kingdom, but the weeds are the sons of the wicked one,39 and the enemy who sowed them is the Devil. The harvest is a conclusion of a system of things, and the reapers are angels.40 Therefore, just as the weeds are collected and burned with fire, so it will be in the conclusion of the system of things.41 The Son of man will send his angels, and they will collect out from his Kingdom all things that cause stumbling and people who practice lawlessness,42 and they will pitch them into the fiery furnace. There is where their weeping and the gnashing of their teeth will be.43 At that time the righteous ones will shine as brightly as the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. Let the one who has ears listen.
      The Almighty God Jehovah is able to read our thoughts,to see what we see, hear what we hear, feel what we feel, to know who we real are and our motivations. He read Cain’s thoughts about Abel his brother, He warned Cain before Cain murdered his brother, Cain was not detoured, his jealousy motivated him to kill his own brother. This is how God can bring about change: While under His Kingdom rule, His Spirit will examine the alarming bad thoughts when they arise, He will prevent anyone who would harm someone else in all the Earth, unlike today as we live this life outside His Kingdom rule. There will no longer be any need for police, for if someone decides they no longer want the beautiful life God promises us, you will only notice they are gone, you will look at their place and they just won’t be. Peace continues for everyone else! We will be truly free of the fear someone else can harm us, free on any harm or death! Praise Jah!
      King Solomon foretold at Proverbs 2:21 For only the upright will reside in the earth,And the blameless will remain in it. 22 As for the wicked, they will be cut off from the earth,And the treacherous will be torn away from it.
      King David foretold at Psalms 37:10 Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more;You will look at where they were,And they will not be there. 11 But the meek will possess the earth,And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace. vs:29 The righteous will possess the earth,And they will live forever on it.
      Psalms 34:16 But the face of Jehovah is against those doing what is bad,To erase all memory of them from the earth
      Jesus foretold at Matthew 5:3 “Happy are the mild-tempered (meek), since they will inherit the earth.
      FIFTH After those ignoring Jehovah are removed from the Earth there are only those doing His will remaining. They are foretold to be survivors of the Great Day of God Almighty, they survive as the first citizens of God’s Kingdom. Daniel 12:1“During that time Michael will stand up, the great prince who is standing in behalf of your people. And there will occur a time of distress such as has not occurred since there came to be a nation until that time. And during that time your people will escape, everyone who is found written down in the book. Yes, because they exercised Faith in God and did His Will by “preaching the Good News of God’s Kingdom” and educated themselves about the many facets of belief in God and what He expects of humans, their names are written in God’s Book.
      Jehovah’s Witnesses have been preaching the Good News of God’s Kingdom for more than 120 years. There is STRONG EVIDENCE that the preaching has been accomplished Earthwide, yet in a spirit of thoroughness, Jehovah mercifully continues to keep calling to anyone who’s heart impels them to search for the truth, today He will let Himself be found by you until His Great Day Dawns. THEN the open door will be shut suddenly. There is prophetic evidence that Earths rulers will SOON be changed, then the SECOND aspect will burst into reality for Earth’s Inhabitants. NOW is the time to ACT! CHANGE IS COMING TO THE EARTH! WILL YOUR NAME BE FOUND IN GOD’S BOOK OF HIS FAITHFUL WITNESSES? WILL ANGELS DESCEND TO HARM OR PROTECT YOU?
      In conclusion, we can see God has set a day that “HE” will change the way mankind is governed. Those approaching God must seek the government that God will use to change from what we see in the world today to a planet of peaceful people, each on their own lot, praising God and lovingly respecting every other person as a worshiper of Jehovah, wanting to live forever in Peace and Security. How can we seek the Kingdom of God? How can we have our names written in God’s Book as faithful ones seeking His Guidance? Jehovah uses One Group of people today, we only have to look around the world to see who are preaching the Good News, Door to Door, in all the inhabited Earth as foretold at Matthew 24:14 as we first considered “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.“
      Only Jehovah’s Witnesses are doing the expressed will of God, Announcing Jehovah’s Kingdom as they go door to door preaching the “Good News of God’s Kingdom” to all the inhabitants on Earth. We invite you to careful examine all our beliefs that are guaranteed by God Himself. Every belief has a foundation found in the written word of God. Join us as we seek first the Kingdom of God as the solution to mankind’s problems!
