The mystery of this lawlessness is at work

Wednesday, September 30 I will give you all this authority and their glory, because it has been handed over to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. —Luke 4:6. Satan and the demons use not only governments but also false religion and the commercial system to mislead “the entire inhabited earth.” (Rev. 12:9) Through false religion, Satan promotes lies about Jehovah. In addition, the Devil seems [...]

Woe to those who yearn for the day of Jehovah

Sunday, September 27 I have great grief and unceasing pain in my heart. —Rom. 9:2. Paul felt discouraged by the Jews’ negative reaction to the Kingdom message. Even so, he did not give up on them.

Certain men have slipped in among you

Saturday, September 26 The sons of the true God began to notice that the daughters of men were beautiful. —Gen. 6:2. Perhaps Satan tempted the disloyal angels not only with the opportunity for immoral sex but also with the promise of seizing power over mankind.

Are Jehovah’s Witnesses really neutral?

Friday, September 25 Is it lawful to pay head tax to Caesar or not? —Matt. 22:17. The party followers of Herod who raised this issue hoped that if Jesus denounced the tax, he might be accused of sedition. If Jesus said that taxation was a necessary burden, he could lose the support of his followers. Jesus was careful to remain neutral on the taxation issue. Of [...]

Is it immodest to obey Christ?

Modesty is good. It is important to recognize our limitations both in our abilities and in our authority. True modesty comes from recognizing divine supremacy and authority. In his presentation, Mark Sanderson noted a couple of Bible examples. One of modesty and one of presumptuousness. David displayed modesty by not taking vengeance on Saul, who was seeking to kill him. [...]

They will come and bow down to Jehovah

Tuesday, September 22 Jehovah knows those who belong to him. —2 Tim. 2:19. How can we strengthen our resolve to seek Jehovah’s recognition and not that of the world? To do so, we need to remember two important facts. First, Jehovah always gives recognition to those who serve him faithfully. (Heb. 6:10; 11:6) He deeply appreciates every one of his servants, and he views it as “unrighteous” to ignore those who are [...]

Who has stood in the inner circle of Jehovah?

Monday, September 21 Jehovah your God you should fear, him you should serve, to him you should cling. —Deut. 10:20. The Bible accounts about the disobedience of Cain, Solomon, and the Israelites at Mount Sinai have a noteworthy element in common. These individuals had opportunity to “repent . . . and turn around.” (Acts 3:19) Clearly, Jehovah is not quick to give up on those who take a [...]

Jehovah is taking his position to accuse

There is such a thing as judgment day. And it is nearer than most people think. Some five centuries before Christ there was a judgment day, at least in a pictorial way. Isaiah, the third chapter, reveals that Jehovah stood up to accuse and condemn the wicked ones among his people. Verse 13 states: “Jehovah is taking his position to accuse; He is standing up to [...]

Their horses are swifter than leopards

Saturday, September 12 How long must I ask for help from violence, but you do not intervene? —Hab. 1:2. Habakkuk lived during a very difficult and challenging time. He was deeply saddened because he was surrounded by wicked, violent people. When would their wickedness end? Why did Jehovah take so long before acting? All Habakkuk saw was injustice and oppression practiced by his own countrymen. He [...]
