LEARN WHAT THE BIBLE REALLY TEACHES JUST FYI

                                                                                                               “Our hearts must be complete with Jehovah”

           When one thinks of completeness is it like when one thinks of a glass being have empty or ether half full, or is that really good enough?  Ones uses that expression to compensate of their lack of ability or desire to do better.  However, are we to take that stand when it comes to our worship to God, Jehovah?  Never may that happen, from the inspired word states:…..“I am holly, so you must be holly’……I am prefect so you must be perfect”

           Think though, the status quote of this ungodly world we live in, and its desires and sexual preferences it chooses for them selves.  Can one just brush it off and say:  Be tolerant don’t Judge people, or does the glass is half empty or half full apply at all in their case.  No.!!
Notices what the inspired word has to say about this:  Romans 1:24-2:3 ” 24 Therefore God, in keeping with the desires of their hearts, gave them up to uncleanness, that their bodies might be dishonored among them, 25 even those who exchanged the truth of God for the lie and venerated and rendered sacred service to the creation rather than the One who created, who is blessed forever. Amen. 26 That is why God gave them up to disgraceful sexual appetites, for both their females changed the natural use of themselves into one contrary to nature; 27 and likewise even the males left the natural use of the female and became violently inflamed in their lust toward one another, males with males, working what is obscene and receiving in themselves the full recompense, which was due for their error.
28 And just as they did not approve of holding God in accurate knowledge, God gave them up to a disapproved mental state, to do the things not fitting, 29 filled as they were with all unrighteousness, wickedness, covetousness, badness, being full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malicious disposition, being whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, insolent, haughty, self-assuming, inventors of injurious things, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, false to agreements, having no natural affection, merciless. 32 Although these know full well the righteous decree of God, that those practicing such things are deserving of death, they not only keep on doing them but also consent with those practicing them.
2  Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are, if you judge; for in the thing in which you judge another, you condemn yourself, inasmuch as you that judge practice the same things. 2 Now we know that the judgment of God is, in accord with truth, against those who practice such things.
3 But do you have this idea, O man, while you judge those who practice such things and yet you do them, that you will escape the judgment of God?

              Can we see the point here about why our hearts need to be complete with Jehovah?”  Jehovah does not want us to judge these individuals but to preach the truth to these ones.  Can one see and understand why Satan opposes us when we take up the task of reading his word every day?  It is simple.  The devil knows that if he does not oppose ones, he will never know if he could turn you back to his side or not, or in some cases, to keep the ones he already has a hold on.  Regardless of what ever possible outcome, the devil will try.  And the things that Jehovah allows us to go through in this respect, for he allows us to be temped by him because we need to learn that what ever Satan puts us through, we can endure it because of his great power.
A special note, though.  Even if we are a little bewildered by how much the devil is allowed to do to us in this regard, we need to rest assured that Jehovah knows what he is doing, and we just need to continue our reading each day, letting the devil know he is not going to deter us, and in time we will completely understand the why, and to understand many rich blessings.  Righteous belongs to Jehovah!
Does this mean that those who have a problem with the above practices have no hope?  Never may that happen! In conclusion, the answer to this question is in the principle of the law on circumcision. notices Romans:2:25-29….”25 Circumcision is, in fact, of benefit only if you practice law; but if you are a transgressor of law, your circumcision has become uncircumcision. 26 If, therefore, an uncircumcised person keeps the righteous requirements of the Law, his uncircumcision will be counted as circumcision, will it not? 27 And the uncircumcised [person] that is such by nature will, by carrying out the Law, judge you who with its written code and circumcision are a transgressor of law. 28 For he is not a Jew who is one on the outside, nor is circumcision that which is on the outside upon the flesh. 29 But he is a Jew who is one on the inside, and [his] circumcision is that of the heart by spirit, and not by a written code. The praise of that one comes, not from men, but from God.”  The same power that raised Jesus up from the dead, can raise anyone of us up from any sin.  Never underestimate it. Remember when Jesus raised Lazarus up from being four days dead, the inspired word says: …….“his skin was as a babies flesh”.  Powerful!

                                                                          “IN THE DAYS OF THOSE KINGS” (DANIAL 2:41-44)

In those verses, the Bible describes the worsening world conditions that we are experiencing at this time. Notice how it describes the social unrest so accurately;
41 “And whereas you beheld the feet and the toes to be partly of molded clay of a potter and partly of iron, the kingdom itself will prove to be divided, but somewhat of the hardness of iron will prove to be in it, forasmuch as you beheld the iron mixed with moist clay. 42 And as for the toes of the feet being partly of iron and partly of molded clay, the kingdom will partly prove to be strong and will partly prove to be fragile. 43 Whereas you beheld iron mixed with moist clay, they will come to be mixed with the offspring of mankind; but they will not prove to be sticking together, this one to that one, just as iron is not mixing with molded clay.
44 “And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be brought to ruin. And the kingdom itself will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it itself will stand to times indefinite
One would think that the government shutting down for 2 weeks was hard enough, however, can one imagine how it will be when they are all shut down because Satan has gathered them all together in the midst of the devils army Gog of Magog, only to be destroyed by the stone, (Jesus Christ) that was cut out of a mountain with out human hands, (Gods Power) and the stone struck the feet of that image the Danial saw in the vision of the kings dream and it will crush all those nations and they will be shut down for good. (Danial 2:31-35) Says;  31 “You, O king, happened to be beholding, and, look! a certain immense image. That image, which was large and the brightness of which was extraordinary, was standing in front of you, and its appearance was dreadful. 32 As regards that image, its head was of good gold, its breasts and its arms were of silver, its belly and its thighs were of copper, 33 its legs were of iron, its feet were partly of iron and partly of molded clay. 34 You kept on looking until a stone was cut out not by hands, and it struck the image on its feet of iron and of molded clay and crushed them. 35 At that time the iron, the molded clay, the copper, the silver and the gold were, all together, crushed and became like the chaff from the summer threshing floor, and the wind carried them away so that no trace at all was found of them. And as for the stone that struck the image, it became a large mountain and filled the whole earth.
 
            YesNo trace of all these worldly governments will ever be found again.  However The stone that represents Gods Heavenly Kingdom will be extended to the earth.  Jesus Christ and the 144,000 co-rulers will take over ruler-ship of the earth at that time. Revelation 14 1-5 says;  14 And I saw, and, look! the Lamb standing upon the Mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand having his name and the name of his Father written on their foreheads. 2 And I heard a sound out of heaven as the sound of many waters and as the sound of loud thunder; and the sound that I heard was as of singers who accompany themselves on the harp playing on their harps. 3 And they are singing as if a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders; and no one was able to master that song but the hundred and forty-four thousand, who have been bought from the earth. 4 These are the ones that did not defile themselves with women; in fact, they are virgins. These are the ones that keep following the Lamb no matter where he goes. These were bought from among mankind as first-fruits to God and to the Lamb, 5 and no falsehood was found in their mouths; they are without blemish.  The kingdom will be given to these ones and it will be never brought to ruin.  Neither will it be past on to any other people.  It will last forever.
             What are we to expect to happen from now and until then and how can we survive it into the new world?  

Well first of all we are awaiting the great tribulation that Jesus Christ spoke of.  However the good news must be preached first.  Soon all the ones that will embrace Bible truth, will be mark in their foreheads and written in Gods book of life. (Malachi 3:16-18) states;  16 At that time those in fear of Jehovah spoke with one another, each one with his companion, and Jehovah kept paying attention and listening. And a book of remembrance began to be written up before him for those in fear of Jehovah and for those thinking upon his name.
17 “And they will certainly become mine,” Jehovah of armies has said, “at the day when I am producing a special property. And I will show compassion upon them, just as a man shows compassion upon his son who is serving him. 18 And YOU people will again certainly see [the distinction] between a righteous one and a wicked one, between one serving God and one who has not served him.”
  Yes, a clear dividing line between the righteous and the wicked will be formed and then:

1.  False religion will be destroyed starting  the great tribulation.
2.  For then there will be great tribulation such as has not occurred since the world’s beginning until now, no, nor will occur again. 22 In fact, unless those days were cut short, no flesh would be saved; but on account of the chosen ones those days will be cut short.
3. Then the nations will turn on the true religion and that will trigger Armageddon.
And that will be the end of Satan’s world and his rebellious rule, and all those who followed him.
This reminds me of a song about the treasures of Gods word the Bible;
                                               God’s Own Book—A Treasure
1. There is a book that by its many pages,
Brings peace and joy and hope to humankind.
Its wondrous thoughts are charged with such great power;
It brings life to the “dead,” sight to the “blind.”
That precious book is God’s own Holy Bible.
Its words were penned by men whom God inspired,
By men who truly loved their God Jehovah,
And by his holy spirit they were fired.
2. They wrote a record true of God’s creations,
How by his might this universe appeared.
They also told how man at first was sinless
But how his Paradise then disappeared.
They further told about a certain angel
Who challenged God and spurned his sov’reignty.
That challenge led to sin and man’s great sorrow,
But soon will come Jehovah’s victory.
3. Today we live in times of joy unbounded.
God’s Kingdom now is here with Christ as Lord.
This is the day Jehovah grants salvation
To all who come to him in full accord.
Within his book are found these cheerful tidings;
A sacred banquet feast on which to feed.
It offers peace beyond all human thinking;
This Living Treasure beckons all to read.

(See also 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:21.)

“In this day and Time, What sort of People should we Be”

           In this day and time, we are fast approaching the end of this world.  What does this mean to all on earth at this time?  Well, it means that we must be deciding if we belong to God or to Satan.  There no other choices.  One may try to not chose sides by being neutral, however, there is no neutral ground in this universal issue.  To be neutral is to choose Satan’s side by default, so one would have to choose Jehovah’s of by default be included with Satan’s side by default.   
           The devil has involved all of us in this issue in the words he stated in the book of Job, when plagued him with the boils from the crown of his head, to the souls of his feet.  He did this to prove that he could turn everyone against Jehovah, granted that he put us through enough things that we would not only turn on God, but he charged that we would curse him to his very face.
            What are the results of that charge, and how has mankind responded to the challenge?  Unfortunately, some have proved the devil to be right about them, but what about me and you?  Think honestly about how we hold up under the pressure of this world.  These pressures are designed to make us think selfishly for our desires of the flesh, the desires of the eyes, and the showy display of ones means of life.(1 John 2:15-17)
            The desires of the flesh is more convoluted today.  The devil is very treacherous in this matter.  Knowing that one needs money to take care of ones family, how would one feel that in order to keep you job, one would have to do something dishonest, or commit immorality with ones boss?  These are the things that Satan is using to put us on his side.  How are we doing?  Do we give in to pressures like this?  No-one wants to go with out money or food or clothing.  However, do we let situations like this to make us disobey God’s Law?
             To stay on Jehovah’s side, we must be willing to go through what ever we need to in order to stay on his side.  Giving in to this pressure is not necessary for us to have the things we need.  Obeying Jehovah results in great blessings.(Matt 6:33) Jesus fed thousands with little miraculously and in our time, we are similarly provided for with out giving in to satanic pressures.
             The desires of the eyes can really let us know where we stand on these issues.  To ones trained to see all the traps of the devil in the midst of all the so-called attractive things of this world, will survive the temptations.  The things we see will not be so appealing if we do not blind our eyes to all the badness attached to them.  The grass is not greener.  The so-called green grass of immorality is loaded with broken marriages, and sexually transmitted diseases, and death. (James 1:14,15)
               The Showy display of ones means of life, can be a real challenge.  Everyone wants to feel important and to be successful, so if someone finds themselves in a situation where it looks like one  is struggling of destitute, one may panic and think that they sill needs to keep up with the Jones, regardless of the fact that cutting back on expenses would be the wiser thing to do.  Also, higher education might inter the picture.  A new career perhaps?.  I almost was fooled by that and when I kept training for different jobs and then something always happened to keep me from using what I trained for, I realized that the devil was trying to keep me focused on the wrong things.
                Don’t be mislead, Reading Gods word and doing all we can to obey it is the only way to survive.  Holly acts of conduct should be the things that should motivate us in this day and time. For two weeks the Government shut down because of some of these same issues, and soon all of the Governments will be shut down for good never to rise again.  Until then we must have these holly acts of conduct day after day.(2Peter 3:11-13)more       or For e-mail conversations contact me at:contactjd2learnwhatbibleteaches@yahoo.com  for women who want to talk to my wife via e-mail for she is a shut-in and can’t get out in the ministry much wright to: m_billie@yahoo.com , she will be glad to help you.

                                                                     “LOVERS OF GOD, RATHER THAN LOVERS OF PLEASURE”
To start out, I would like to reflect on the golden rule.  One most note, that there two golden rules to consider:

1.        The one Jesus Christ introduced; “Do to others as you would have them do to you.”
2.        The one introduced by Satan; “Whoever has the gold makes the rules.”
Our theme is taken from 2 Timothy 3:1-6;   ”But know this that in the last day’s critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, UN-thankful, disloyal, 3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up [with pride], lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power; and from these turn away.”
In highlighting, lovers of God, rather than a lover of pleasure, would need to reflect on what it mean to be a lover of pleasure or a lover of God.
Definition:
1.       A lover of pleasure:  One who puts nothing in front of their pursuit of pleasures of all kinds.   Not just sexual pleasures as one might think, but every possible pleasure life can bring. This is even put before any worship of any God of deity.
2.       Lover of God:  One who puts Worship of God before everything, and renders Jehovah exclusive devotion.  Even family members cannot super-cede this devotion.
What does all this mean, thought?  Proverbs 23:23 states; “Buy Truth Itself and do not sell it.”
How does this apply?  One must agree that the whole bible contains the full scope of truth.  Once one accepts that truth, from then on we must make decisions that reflect the fact that we are still in that truth and on God’s side.  To ignore any part of that truth, could constitute one a lover of pleasure.  I say could because one could be misled into a decision before realizing it, however when on comes to their senses, do we try to justify continuing because it deprive us of some of the pleasures of life if we do so?   Is a job, material possession, gold, silver, stocks, bonds and whatever, more important than our devotion to God?  To justify ignoring bible principles for any reason would be like selling the truth.  How so?  We buy the truth when we accept Gods word as truth and dedicate ourselves to him by water baptism.  When we ignore his word to pursue pleasures of life, lawful of unlawful we have sold the truth, thus alienating our self from God’s favor.
         Living as a lover of God will not kill us.  The inspired word states:  33 “Keep on, then, seeking first the kingdom and his righteousness, and all these [other] things will be added to YOU.” (Matt. 6:33) Truly, the blessing of Jehovah is what makes rich, and he adds no pain with it.   This is just some of the things highlighted at our last Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses here in Memphis.
May it help ones to embrace God’s word more fully?……….more       or For e-mail conversations contact me at:contactjd2learnwhatbibleteaches@yahoo.com  for women who want to talk to my wife via e-mail for she is a shut-in and can’t get out in the ministry much wright to: m_billie@yahoo.com , she will be glad to help you.

                                     Completely Equipped for Every Good Work.
16 All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work.Greetings my beloved children.  I chose this theme because of the things me and your mom have suffered are closely related to this subject.  About 5 or 6 years ago. we had a watchtower study about some of the scriptures in the Psalms.  The subject of the discussion was about Jehovah’s reminders and having stronger faith.  After-wards I felt the need to increase my Bible reading so that I could finish the Bible in the course  of a years.
If one reads at least 4 pages of the Bible a day, one can finish the Bible in one year.  Needless to say, the past 5-6 years have been an I opener, for during that time, I discovered things about myself that I was not very much aware of, like things that I was doing to hurt myself almost more so than what others would do to me.  For instance, I have a tendency to meditate on the wrong things.  Increasing my Bible reading helped me to have more wholesome things to meditate on.  About that time was when I noticed that Satan was starting to come down on me because he felt what ever grip that he still had on me slipping away for ever and he was determined to not let me go without a fight.  And what a fight it was.  I will not go into all the details of what he tried to do to me or make me do to myself, but I will say this;  he did everything from trying to get me in a situation where I would feel that I had to murder some one to get relief from that one and  to thinking  that I had to compromise Bible principles to keep a job, and he was so determined to get me that through this time, because of the persecution he brought upon me and my wife, it has been hard and challenging to stick with my decision to read  God’s word daily but at the same time, a great joy!  And this year, Jehovah has shown me the reason why the devil was so on about me.  It is the same reason that Satan is on about anyone that studies Jehovah’s word so as to keep on guard by it and be successful.  Satan knows that left alone to read God’s word diligently, in time one would become just like God’s son, Jesus and will be able to say:  “The ruler of this world is coming, and he has know hold on me.”     With the knowledge in the Bible, one can be literally fully equipped for every good work.  No matter what that work may or will have to be for us at any given time.  The main work we will be able to do is God will.  “It is God’s will that all sorts of men shall be saved, and come to an accurate knowledge of the truth”  With out a diligent study of the scriptures, one would not know what that was, much less would on know how to teach it.   Do not underestimate what a                                                                                      difference have accurate knowledge of Gods word.  Do you recall the reputation the Jesus from being an advocate for Jehovah’s word?;  The Word of God  was what he was called………..more       or For e-mail conversations contact me at:contactjd2learnwhatbibleteaches@yahoo.com  for women who want to talk to my wife via e-mail for she is a shut-in and can’t get out in the ministry much wright to: m_billie@yahoo.com , she will be glad to help you.

                                                        “Safeguard Jehovah’s reminders”
      Jehovah’s reminders are very important.  Like all reminders that we get, they are designed to keep us away from harm.  I chose this subject because this best describes the way I feel about the past conflict between me and some loved ones, that I have had, for I feel that the attitude they have developed about me has sparked some emotions very close to my heart.  “Jehovah’s reminders”  In other words, the reason why I have been having such a hard time with my finances is because that is what Satan has launched an attack on in order to make me forget about Jehovah’s reminders by being so concerned about finding a way to make income that I neglect Jehovah’s reminders.
     I have to admit though at times I thought that he had succeeded because that was all I would think of.  However, because no matter what the devil through at me, I continued to get up everyday and did something positive no matter how much other people did or said negative things, I made sure before I went to bed to do my bible reading.  One has no concept of how hard it has been for me to see my wife so sick, and as her care taker, and then have to deal with being unemployed, and going through training after training for jobs and still getting no where seemingly and feeling so helpless at times and so mad I could spit.
       However, when I settled down for the day to do my reading for the day, Jehovah’s spirit lets me know that I am doing all that I can and that I need to cope with the machinations of the devil for he will not stop trying to stop me from keeping on guard by reading God’s word.  Notice 1 Peter 5:8-10 . 8 Keep YOUR senses, be watchful. YOUR adversary, the Devil, walks about like a roaring lion, seeking to devour [someone]. 9 But take YOUR stand against him, solid in the faith, knowing that the same things in the way of sufferings are being accomplished in the entire association of YOUR brothers in the world. 10 But, after YOU have suffered a little while, the God of all undeserved kindness, who called YOU to his everlasting glory in union with Christ, will himself finish YOUR training, he will make YOU firm, he will make YOU strong.  
      And this is so true in this case, for it has been 5 years since I increased my bible reading in order to finish the bible every year and then star over for the next year.  That is the reason for my troubles. That much is clear because before I started that nothing like I have experienced has ever happened.  From my supervisor on one job, trying to get me into a violent confrontation, to a past job dealing sexual harassment in a subtle way to make me feel like I can’t really complain about it because they never really came out and said what they wanted, but how flaky woman can act sometimes they are very obvious, and common.  One can read between the lines.  However if one would play dumb and make like one does not see the sexual harassment, you don’t get as much hours on the clock, or eventually you don’t have a job, and to top that all off, they told unemployment that I quit, delaying my unemployment.
      The devil design all of this to destroy me no doubt, but because he has not, he has tried to use this to turn everyone against me.  One would have to be careful at that because unwittingly they would be suggesting that maybe I should stop reading the bible so much, or maybe I should compromise my principles in order to keep a job.  Never may that happen.  Jehovah’s word is powerful.  Me and my wife are so blessed.  We may run short sometimes but the only reason she has to call her children for help sometimes is because we run out of thing the she would like to have.  In the past I spoiled her that way but the end of this world is coming and we need to persevere.

                                                                        The devil is angered, knowing he has a Short Period of Time 

What is this short period of time referred to in Revelation chapter 12?     Revelation (12: 7-12)

7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels battled with the dragon, and the dragon and its angels battled 8 but it did not prevail, neither was a place found for them any longer in heaven. 9 So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven say:

“Now have come to pass the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ, because the accuser of our brothers has been hurled down, who accuses them day and night before our God! 11 And they conquered him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their witnessing, and they did not love their souls even in the face of death. 12 On this account be glad, YOU heavens and YOU who reside in them! Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to YOU, having great anger, knowing he has a short period of time.”

That was a turning point in the history of mankind.  1.  Gods kingdom was born in the heavens, and Christ Jesus, Jehovah’s first born, took power in heaven and removed the devil from the heavens for good.  Unlike the account at Job 1:7-12, never would the devil be able to move back and forth between heaven and earth. 2.  Woe for the earth!  Satin, knowing his time was running out, started to cause many problems for mankind.  This was fulfilled in 1914 when the First World War broke out after the assassination of a world ruler.  This was a beginning of the pangs of distress. (Matt. 24:1-14)

What does this mean for me and you?

When the devil tried Job, he not only wanted to test Job out, he was suggesting that all mankind if subjected to such pressures, would turn against Jehovah, and curse him to his very face. (Job 1:9-11)

At that Satan answered Jehovah and said: “Is it for nothing that Job has feared God? 10 Have not you yourself put up a hedge about him and about his house and about everything that he has all around? The work of his hands you have blessed, and his livestock itself has spread abroad in the earth. 11 But, for a change, thrust out your hand, please, and touch everything he has [and see] whether he will not curse you to your very face.”

The devil feels that if he bombards mankind with endless miseries, he will take as many of us with him when this world is destroyed.

Is there any hope for mankind, for those who love God?

Our hope is in the true God Jehovah.  By keeping on guard by Jehovah’s word, by reading in it day and night, we will conquer the devil continue to resist in this wicked day.  This short period of time is greatly reducing each day.  Each day the devil encourages the wicked to be even more wicked, and the ones who read God’s word, he hinders and does everything he can to reduce us to poverty.  Anyone that is too prosperous is because that one does the will of that one.  No matter what we will have to suffer, we will continue to serve the true God Jehovah.  Beloved children resist the devil, turn to Jehovah and stick to him!  ………..more  For e-mail conversations contact me at:contactjd2learnwhatbibleteaches@yahoo.com  for women who want to talk to my wife via e-mail for she is a shut-in and can’t get out in the ministry much wright to: m_billie@yahoo.com , she will be glad to help you.

                                                                  “In the last days, critical times and hard to deal with will be here”

“But know this that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up [with pride], lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power; and from these turn away. 6 For from these arise those men who slyly work their way into households and lead as their captives weak women loaded down with sins, led by various desires, 7 always learning and yet never able to come to an accurate knowledge of truth.” )2 Tim 3:1-6)

Today more than ever these word have an all too familiar ring to them, for the head-lines often read:  “Gun control talks”, Gun violence”, “Domestic Violence”  “Child murders”  “Cops Killed in the line of Duty” “Violence against Women”, to name just a few hundred headlines daily.  I remember years ago, we would go from door to door telling people that the end of the world is coming and we are living in the last days, and people would tell us that we were crazy or they would say that “Oh” ‘That’s a hundred years off from now.  That was some 20 years ago, so according to them, we have 80 more years for all of this to come to a head for God to bring an end to this mess.  To be honest with you, we could not handle another 10 years of this, much less 80 so don’t believe it.  In fact the ones whom were saying that are dead or they are not saying it anymore and they are praying for the end to come like yesterday.  According to the inspired word, there are still some that want to put God day off for selfish reasons because they are driven by the spirit of the world which originated with the devil whom is a liar and has been one for a long time and everyone that lives by that spirit can’t get around telling lies themselves.  People say one thing the Bible always says another.  Notice 2 Peter 3:1-10

“3 For YOU know this first that in the last days there will come ridiculers with their ridicule, proceeding according to their own desires 4 and saying: “Where is this promised presence of his? Why, from the day our forefathers fell asleep [in death], all things are continuing exactly as from creation’s beginning.”

5 For, according to their wish, this fact escapes their notice, that there were heavens from of old and an earth standing compactly out of water and in the midst of water by the word of God; 6 and by those [means] the world of that time suffered destruction when it was deluged with water. 7 But by the same word the heavens and the earth that are now are stored up for fire and are being reserved to the Day of Judgment and of destruction of the ungodly men.

8 However, let this one fact not be escaping YOUR notice, beloved ones, that one day is with Jehovah as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. 9 Jehovah is not slow respecting his promise, as some people consider slowness, but he is patient with YOU because he does not desire any to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance. 10 Yet Jehovah’s day will come as a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a hissing noise, but the elements being intensely hot will be dissolved, and earth and the works in it will be discovered.”

The day and the hour, no one can say, but the Father.  However if one will learn what the bible really teaches, they will be protected from the coming destruction if the world of ungodly mankind.   Only the strong shall survive.  Our strength is in Jehovah………..more  For e-mail conversations contact me at:contactjd2learnwhatbibleteaches@yahoo.com  for women who want to talk to my wife via e-mail for she is a shut-in and can’t get out in the ministry much wright to: m_billie@yahoo.com , she will be glad to help you.

                                                                                                                                  What is truth?

One would wonder why anyone would have to ask that question because we have written record of truth, Gods Word.  However, we know people have their own idea of what truth is to them.  For instance, the bible has one way things should be done compared to what is wrong or bad, however to day some have what is termed as an alternative life style, and from group to group, everyone has their own alternative life style, thus the question; “What is truth?”  Jesus Christ once said, regarding truth, he defined it as “every word that comes from Jehovah’s mouth.”

One might say, well how can we know what truth really is being that man has tampered with truth, and translated it in to many languages, it has been copied time and time again, and in today’s languages could truth be distorted or lost altogether?  Good question.  Think, thought, suppose you were all powerful and you could do whatever you wanted to do and you created a universe that was flawless.  However, you gave all your creatures a free will to love you, or not to love you.

Also in time one of the first born creatures started a rebellion and turned most of your creation against you.  Not only has that happened, but the chief of the rebellion spread lies about you and your wright to be ruler of that universe.  Can you honestly say you would do nothing to undo all the damage to your universe?  I would think not.  Even us, driven by human frailties, will be impatient about doing something to help one of our precious children, specially our babe, and the youngest.  The bible has all the answers to what, when, why, and how of everything.  One would do him or herself justice if they would learn it.

However the almighty is not impatient, but the enemy made sure when he challenged God’s right to rule, that there would be a lot of issues to consider and thus we see today with all the so-called alternative life styles how wise that was.  (2 Peter 3:9)  In view of the forgoing, we know that it does not matter who is wrong or right, but if one is willing to make the changes in order to survive the end of this world.  Just as the days of Noah were is what we are facing today.  Jehovah was not concerned about the alternative life styles then, and he will not take them into consideration now.   Isaiah prophesied that people will here a symbolic voice behind them saying this is the way, walk in it. (Isaiah 30:21)

It is of no consequence to argue that one way is more righter the another way, for God’s word has been given to all freely who want to learn what it really teaches , obey, and continue living.  (e. g.

How to Succeed
at School

May you have undeserved kindness and peace from God the Father. May you have peace.

Do you find it difficult to motivate your kids for school these days?  If so the current Awake mag(s) has some practical suggestions I found that would be of interest to you.  In light of this dieing would we live in, staying focused on more important things are getting increasingly harder especially for kids for Satan’s world targets them on purpose. (2 Timothy 3:1,2)

Yes, critical times, hard to deal with are here.  The wicked one knows this and uses it to his advantage to discourage much progress in a positive way.  The negative spirit of this would acts as a fuel for ignorance, robbing us our time and resources if we allow it.  Notice the timely points in the attached Awake PDF file.

Which word would you use to
describe how you view school?

Boring or inspiring?
Frustrating or rewarding?
Stressful or enjoyable?
If your view of school is primarily negative,
what can you do about it? If you have a
positive view of school, how can you sharpen
your skills so that you get even more
out of your education? Using the Bible as a
guide, on pages 3 through 7, we will outline
five keys to success.
How to Succeed
at School
Many of the principles discussed in this series apply
whether you attend public school or private school or
are home schooled.

Corruption
HOW WIDE SPREAD IS IT?

The Watchtower features how corrupt this world has become on different levels.   Crime and violence, and corruption are rampant.

“Our company provides services for a local government authority. We must often
wait two or three months to receive payment for those services. Recently, though,
I received a phone call from a government worker. He offered to speed up the
payments—if we gave him some of the money as a kickback.”—JOHN.
(e. g. October 1-2012 Watchtower  http://www.jw.org )
