      “Detainees in Eritrea are at great risk of contracting infectious diseases because of the overcrowded and unsanitary conditions they are being held in,” said Deprose Muchena.
      At the Mai Serwa Asmera Flowers facility, in reality a forced labour camp where Jehovah’s Witnesses and other detainees are forced to work on flower farms, there are no toilets for detainees. All 700 of them, both men and women, relieve themselves out in the open. At Mai Serwa Maximum Security prison, there are only 20 toilets for 500 detainees.
      In Adi Abeyito, detainees can relieve themselves only twice daily in toilets located outside the compound. The prison has toilets within its grounds reserved for use in the rainy season or extraordinary circumstances such as suspected strikes or prison breaks. In 2015, detainees raised money and built a toilet in each detention hall to cater for the needs of the sick, elderly or those with disabilities.
      No social distance
      The four prisons are extremely congested; Adi Abeyito holds more than four times its capacity of 800 people, Ala prison holding about triple its capacity of 1,200 people while Mai Serwa has more than double its 230-person capacity.
      The vast majority have never been formally charged or brought to court and do not know when, or if, their detention will end.
      They are held in spaces ranging from 2x2m cells for solitary confinement at the Mai Serwa Maximum prison, to shipping containers holding more than 20 detainees, and halls measuring up to 10x20m. Detainees generally take turns to sleep on bare floors because beds or mattresses are not allowed.

      DENVER — Heartbreak and hope happen every day inside hospitals.
      The James family experienced heartbreak when 26-year-old Amber James couldn't breathe. She went to a nearby hospital in Thornton but was transferred to Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center in Denver when her condition got worse. 
      James tested positive for COVID-19 while she was 33 weeks pregnant. 
      “I’m here at home powerless not knowing what to do I can’t do anything," said Brett James, her husband, who was not allowed to visit her. "I had never been away from her while she was sick. Ever." 
      Less than 24 hours after Amber was transferred, doctors put her on a ventilator. 
      The next day, doctors performed an emergency cesarean section to save her baby. 
      “And it came to the point where we needed to get the baby out for baby’s sake and it was a risk to mom," said Dr. Roy Bergstrom, an OB Hospitalist in the Obstetrix Medical Group who helped care for Amber James. 
      Bergstrom said he and his team have performed more than a dozen emergency cesarean sections on moms with COVID-19. 
      This one was different. 
      “We’re Jehovah's Witnesses so we don’t accept blood, and that was the biggest struggle for me," said Brett James. "Because the doctor just straight told me, he’s like, 'so if she starts bleeding, you want us to let her die?' Just like that. And well yeah that’s our religion and that’s what we believe in." 
      Bergstrom said he had conversations with Amber James about this before she was intubated. 
      “It was definitely both an ethically challenging thing, and an emotionally challenging thing knowing that may come to be a factor in her care," he said. 
      Luckily, there were no complications in Amber's C-section, and baby Michilah survived.

      The truth is that this pandemic could still potentially be in the early chapters.  The Spanish Flu pandemic lasted for three full years, and we could possibly be facing a similar scenario.
      And this week WHO official Mike Ryan warned that this virus could even become “endemic”, and if that happens it “may never go away”…
      In other words, Ryan is saying that this virus could become like a flu that keeps reappearing year after year.
      So what are we going to do if that happens?
      Are we supposed to have shutdowns every year whenever a new wave of COVID-19 infections starts happening?

      El amor de la hermandad espiritual se activa y se ve en acción en tiempos críticos, como en los días de la pandemia del coronavirus. “Los testigos de Jehová hemos hecho todo lo posible por obedecer las medidas preventivas y proteger nuestra salud durante esta crisis sanitaria, pero no somos inmunes a los efectos del COVID-19. Por desgracia, ya han perdido la vida 872 hermanos por culpa de este virus, pero la hermandad mundial ha reaccionado rápido para consolar y arropar a los que están sufriendo. Por encima de todo, confiamos en que Jehová siempre nos da su paz”, indica la organización de los testigos de Jehová en su espacio Prensa, en su página oficial, jw.org.

      genetic analyses of the virus have not found any substantial changes which would effectively disguise it from the immune system.

      There was a twitter rumor going around in the last 48 hours that Zhengli SHI the chief scientist from the Wuhan institute of virology who used to study the different bat coronavirus, that she escaped China and is currently in Europe, specifically in France with her family seeking asylum and protection in the us consulate there.
      The same rumor also mentions that she has thousands of documents with her showing that the virus in need come from the lab (though she herself publicly denied this couple of months back when the lab leak runour started spreading likely due to CCP pressure).
      Since all this is rumor we have to take it with a grain of salt, however if this were true and she essentially becomes and whistleblower and defector from China with information that can prove the criminal negligence (or intentional) by the CCP, this can lead to the fall of the CCP as we know it and radical change to CCP vs the world relations.

      Dermatologists around the world are gathering data on what may be largely overlooked symptoms of COVID-19: skin conditions ranging from rashes to “pseudo-frostbite.”
      Many viral illnesses—including chickenpox, measles and mononucleosis—are accompanied by telltale skin rashes, often a result of the body’s heightened inflammatory response while fighting off infection. Though more research is needed, a growing number of case reports and preliminary studies suggest SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, can also affect the skin.
      In late March, an Italian physician submitted a letter to the editor of the Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology, describing skin conditions that affected about 20% of 88 COVID-19 patients analyzed in the Lombardy region of Italy. Most of them developed a red rash on their torsos, while a few suffered hives or blisters resembling chickenpox. Then, in early April, a dermatology organization representing more than 400 French dermatologists issued a statement noting that among probable COVID-19 patients they had seen skin symptoms including hives, red rashes and frostbite-like lesions on the extremities. And finally, in mid-April, in a letter to the editor of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, a group of Italian physicians described a chickenpox-like rash as “a rare but specific COVID-19-associated skin manifestation.”

      "Morning worship announcement at Bethel.
      In the United States, 9,000 of our brothers have contracted the Corona Virus, 2,500 have recovered, 563 are hospitalized and unfortunately 219 have fallen asleep to death.
      This was mentioned April 14, 2020 in the morning worship in New York's bethel.  It was asked that this be shared with the brothers so that we continue to pray for the entire association of brothers and understand the reason that the governing body has taken the measures that have been taken so far.  Cheers!"

      New Coronavirus (COVID-19) Drugs: Remdesivir, Tocilizumab (Actemra), and Leronlimab | New Coronavirus Treatment Remdesivir, Tocilizumab, and Leronlimab are new medications against Coronavirus (COVID-19) that are being explored. Besides hydroxychloroquine, these are other medications being investigated in the context of a clinical trial and some for compassionate use to treat coronavirus (COVID-19). Remdesivir, developed by Gilead Sciences Inc., is an investigational broad-spectrum antiviral treatment that was previously tested in humans with Ebola and had shown promise in animal models for treating Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), which are caused by other coronaviruses. Currently Gilead Sciences has made Remdesivir available for coronavirus clinical trials and to more than 1800 people on a compassionate use basis. The hope is that the results from the phase 3 clinical trials will be available by the end of May, 2020. Tocilizumab is a monoclonal antibody that competitively inhibits the binding of interleukin-6 (IL-6) to its receptor (IL-6R). And by inhibiting the entire receptor complex, you block the signal to induce more inflammation from coronavirus.
      In a recent study from China, researchers noted Tocilizumab appears to be an effective treatment option in COVID‐19 patients with a risk of cytokine storms. And for these critically ill patients with elevated IL‐6, the repeated dose of the Tocilizumab is recommended. Leronlimab, made by the Canadian pharmaceutical Cytodyn, is a CCR5 reecptor inhibitor drug that was developed to treat HIV. The CCR5 receptor stands for “chemokine receptor type 5” and is expressed on t-cells, macrophages and even on breast and prostate cancer cells. By blocking this receptor, the principle is that you are block cytokines that direct cell movement for coronavirus (COVID-19). And by blocking the movement, you don’t bring immune cells to the site of infection from coronavirus (COVID-19), thus decreasing the risk of a cytokine storm. While there are many more drugs still in the pipeline to treatment COVID-19, these are the new drugs I feel have the most promise and are moving along to phase 3 clinical trials and onto the consumer market.

      Coronavirus is not the end of the world’By Manolo
      20th April 2020 By Manolo Gatt
      Jehovah’s Witnesses all around the world have reacted quickly to stop the spread of the Coronavirus. Since the initial stages of this, now pandemic, rigorous measures have been taken including the suspension of all public religious activity including large assemblies as well as local meetings usually held in Kingdom Halls.
      Locally, working very closely with the Civilian Contingencies Committee, we have implemented all recommended measures as and when required including the suspension of our main activity of going from house to house and public witnessing with our recognisable trolleys.
      However, we have been using other means at our disposal such as video conferencing to continue to “meet together”, thus encouraging one another whilst also continuing, to the extent possible, to receive much needed spiritual instruction and comfort.
      We of course continue in our determination to fully collaborate with the health authorities, which we thank for their invaluable work, as we endure these challenging times.
      Please note that our website, JW.org, is open to everyone, where you can find encouraging and up building information for all age groups, including Bible-based movies which are very practical for our days.
      In the meantime, our younger members are helping out as volunteers and are offering themselves to help their neighbours and the elderly going to supermarkets, pharmacies and taking them to the hospital to the doctor when they have an appointment.
      We also very much take into consideration the needs of the deaf and the blind by providing them with programmes transmitted by video conference to their own homes in sign language by a team of translators and also Braille publications for those who need them.
      Finally, although some people may say that Jehovah’s Witnesses are saying that the coronavirus is a sign of the end of the world, the fact is that we would never make such an affirmation.
      What then? According to the Revised Standard Version (Catholic Edition), Jesus, responding to a question asked by his inquisitive disciples: “Tell us […] what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?” Jesus answered, and we are quoting only in part: “There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences (epidemics)” (Luke 21:7, 11).
      So it would be wrong to say that the Coronavirus is the sign of the end of the world. The truth is that epidemics and diseases have plagued and continue to plague the human race. As we all know humanity has been plagued in recent times, like “the Spanish flu” (1918-1919), that killed more than 40 million persons, the ‘simple flu’, that every year causes the death of between 250,000 and 500,000. Or aids that has infected more than 76 million persons and caused the death of 35 million with deceases related to this ailment. Only in 2016 1.8 million died because of Aids.
      Therefore, what can certainly be said is that we are living in the time Jesus foretold when he answered his disciples question.
      However, anyone that aims to take advantage of such a tremendous situation as the one we are experiencing today, so sad and tragic with its many deaths and economic instability, to frighten or intimidate the people that are our neighbours, does a great disservice to the real message of hope that the Bible highlights and Jesus taught us to pray for, saying: “Let your Kingdom come”.
      That hope is the promise of a better world that everyone can aspire to where God Himself “will wipe away every tear from our eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things shall pass away.” And they will pass away. The Kingdom of God will accomplish this. (Matthew 6:9; Apocalypse 21:4; RSV Catholic Edition).
      That is why Jesus wanted everyone to know about this, so he told his disciples that: “this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14).
      This is the true essence of real Christianity.

      France and Australia first reported a spike in domestic violence figures since the outbreak of COVID-19 and issue of stay-at-home orders. Research has shown that a forced domestic life and isolation only spurs domestic violence within the household, considering factors like financial stability and unemployment which are both rising concerns during the pandemic.

      Dr. Joshua D. Raninowitz, M.D., Ph.D told ABC News, “When you get exposed to the virus, your immune system immediately starts mounting a response. At the same time the virus starts spreading within the body. An outcome depends on which wins the race, viral spread? or the immune response? When you start with a high dose of virus, it gives it a head start in the race.” Dr Rabinowitz was the NIH Pioneer Award recipient in 2016 and is a researcher and professor at Princeton University (scholar.princeton.edu/rabinowitz).

      I have noticed many friends seem to be stressing about the acquisition of the memorial symbols during the coronavirus lockdown. There have been quite a few discussions on social media and in person.
      These discussions were mainly regarding the necessity for memorial symbols if such became troublesome to purchase and if no one in the household was a partaker. The elders sent out information, one  of which was the 85 WT 2/1/ p. 31 "question from readers" (
      Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. )which says in part: "On occasion, raging storms or floods have prevented a congregation, or some of its members, from meeting together as planned. In rare cases, martial law has been in effect with armed soldiers barring citizens from being out-of-doors after sunset. Other Christians have not been able to be at the congregation’s celebration because of being hospitalized or seriously ill. What can be done in such instances?
      While it is fitting for the whole congregation to unite for this important event, circumstances such as noted above may make that impossible. When extreme weather, a natural disaster, or the like, absolutely prevents a family or a portion of a congregation from meeting with the congregation, the isolated ones can meet and discuss Scriptural accounts such as found in Luke 22:7-23, 28-30 and; 1 Corinthians 11:20-31, as well as discussing the meaning of the occasion. Similarly, if an enforced curfew makes it impossible for a congregation to gather on the appropriate night, meeting in Congregation Book Study groups or neighborhood groups might be the best alternative, the sum of those in attendance serving as the congregation’s attendance report. A brief talk may even be given if a capable, dedicated brother is in the group. There need not be concern that no suitable emblems are available as long as no one in this emergency situation previously partook of the bread and the wine as an anointed Christian".
      It made me think about the whole topic a little bit more. To observe the memorial was a command by Jesus for the anointed, and as far as I am aware, there is nothing in the Bible commanding the great crowd to observe it, even as spectators. However, at the beginning, before the great crowd was identified, all were partakers. After that, the emblems kept being passed, and those who were anointed partook, and those who were not obviously didn't. Fast forward to today, in a congregation setting, even if we "know" that currently no one partakes, that can change. So while all the anointed are not sealed yet, we cannot assume, and stop passing along the emblems on the account that we think no one is anointed in our congregation. No one is asked beforehand if they are going to partake, that only becomes evident when the emblems reach them, and they eat the bread and drink the wine. That way, no one is put on the spot. Of course, on top of that, since we are one flock, and we support the anointed in everything, we observe the memorial with them, as spectators, and also to show appreciation for what Jesus did for us. But, under lockdown circumstances if we know for sure no one is going to partake in our family, then there is really no need for the emblems. That's how I see it anyway. But some prefer to have the emblems to help them visualize things better. Although we are supposed to be walking by faith, not by sight...😀
      I like how our website puts it: "The purpose of the Lord’s Evening Meal is to remember Jesus, showing our gratitude for his sacrifice in our behalf. (Matthew 20:28; 1 Corinthians 11:24) The observance is not a sacrament, or a religious practice that imparts merit such as grace or the forgiveness of sins. * The Bible teaches that our sins can be forgiven, not by a religious rite, but only through faith in Jesus".—Romans 3:25; 1 John 2:1, 2.
      Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Unfortunately, it seems like some are viewing the memorial as some kind of religious ritual, and are even going to pass the emblems among themselves as if touching them somehow makes all the difference....Because I come from a Catholic family, I find this kind of reasoning a little disappointing...
      Also, I don't know if anyone has listened to the memorial talk, the brother says that Jehovah's Witnesses would risk their lives to be at the memorial. In view of all the above, isn't that statement a little far fetched?
      Any thoughts?

       the title is inaccurate. According to la Repubblic the 40 didn't test positive to the antibody tests, but rather to antigen tests.
      Edit:
      Antigen is a part of the virus (think a protein in the virus’ capsule). If that’s present the infection is likely still ongoing.
      Antibody is your body’s defense.
      ——————-
      Keep in mind that an ANTIBODY test can be made for 2 types of antibodies: IgM (short term immediate defense) or IgG (long term defense).
      If you’re negative for IgM but positve for IgG, you’re probably immune. If you’re positive for IgM but negative for IgG, you’re probably still dealing with the infection.
      SO: You can only be sure that an asymptomatic patient won’t develop symptoms if they’ve overcome the infection - and that is measured by IgG+IgM, not by single antigen test.

      *** 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.

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!
