There are many JW websites that are positive and
pro-Witness out there. These exist for most of the same reasons
other sites exist- to encourage their site members and provide a
safe forum to chat and gather. Understandably, many sincere
brothers and sisters are concerned about what they deem as apostate
influence and infiltration among anonymous internet users, so they
setup a registration process wherein they can restrict who is able
to participate and become a member of their website. Registration
on these sites are limited to only those that can look up something
from a current Kingdom Ministry or songbook…
Recently a new page was added and is found in the upper right tab of the site. My thought was that those that visit could anonymously leave a comment explaining what brought them here and where they are with respect to their service to Jehovah God and Jesus Christ and how it relates to Jehovah’s […]
Pinpointing this time period is extremely important to us as Christian Witnesses of Jehovah- I’m sure you will agree with that. The entire chronology we have been taught hangs upon the date of 607 B.C.E. By starting with this date, we calculate that the 2,520 years of the gentile times brings us to the year 1914 C.E. This then leads us to when Christ appointed a faithful slave over all his belongs in the year 1919. So without knowing when Jerusalem fell back in the pre-Christian era, none of these other dates could be calculated.
The Olivet Discourse is one that has been given many differing interpretations…there is more to it that meets the eye, as it was one of Y’shusa’s later instructions to His disciples, shortly before his death. The accounts are at Matt.24, Mark 13, & Luke 21. I believe that some of these events occured during the 1st […]
There is a story, possibly true; likely embellished, that has been floating around among the Witnesses for a few years. Here’s how it goes:
…Have you heard about the teens that were secretly living a worldly life and coined the phrase “double”? They would approach other youths and say “Are you a double?” referring to their little club as it were. They even went so far as to put two small dots on their lapel badges at Conventions, and spread the word that all the other “doubles” should do the same so they could recognize each other when they walked past each other.
all the way back in the 1970s the Watchtower had two excellent articles explaining the true and accurate meaning and depth of John 17:3. So why is it that 99% of the friends don’t really know what this verse means, and relegate it to the “Study the Bible” scripture? Just because most of us have it memorized doesn’t mean we understand it. And how accurate is the unusual rendering given to this verse by the New World Translation?
I met him briefly when I was there and of course heard him speak many times. He seemed to be a lovely man. But when you are convinced its all part of Jehovah’s Org and you are Captive to a Concept things tend to go “God’s Way” all of the time and it’s so much […]
God calls those whom He chooses for His Kingdom, to reign with His son. Where do they reign with Y’shua, in Heaven or on Earth? As this is a question that each one must answer for themselves, I’ll present the following scriptures for consideration & discussion. This is also just an overview of the […]
Since composing the following paper, I am considering the posibility that during the next age, all the “anointed” may be in the flesh & on earth. Following the millenniual age, it may then be possible that we could be taken to heaven. This is a topic in it’s own right, for a separate discussion. —————————————————— […]
