The Watchtower’s deluding influence soon to end

2021-11-16T06:11:32-05:00June 29th, 2021|WT Review|

Part two of Watchtower Review of I Will Shake All the Nations How have people reacted to this message? Most have reacted negatively. (Read Psalm 2:1-3.) The nations have become agitated. They refuse to accept Jehovah’s appointed Ruler. They do not view the Kingdom message we preach as “good news.” In fact, some governments have even banned the preaching work! Even though many of the rulers of these [...]

The Watchtower’s Deluding Influence

2019-09-21T13:27:16-04:00January 8th, 2017|Commentary|

Commentary on daily text of Jehovah's Witnesses Sunday, January 8 Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing that he has a short period of time.—Rev. 12:12. In 1914, war broke out between nations of Europe—a war that spread and engulfed the whole world. By the time it ended in 1918, terrible food shortages had [...]

The Deluding Influence

2016-04-14T07:22:49-04:00April 14th, 2016|Commentary|

Thursday, April 14 God made you alive.—Eph. 2:1. What a contrast there is between young servants of Jehovah and youths of this world! Many who do not serve Jehovah lead a self-centered way of life, focusing only on what they want. Some researchers call them “Generation Me.” By the way they talk and dress, they give evidence of disdain for the older generation, whom they view [...]

Man of Lawlessness and the Deluding Influence

2019-09-25T10:40:49-04:00January 15th, 2016|Commentary|

Friday, January 15 He gave five talents to one, two to another, and one to still another.—Matt. 25:15. In the parable of the talents, Jesus clearly reveals an obligation resting on his anointed followers. We need to understand the meaning of this parable, for it affects all true Christians, whether they have the hope of a heavenly reward or of an earthly one. Jesus gave the parable [...]

How much influence does Satan have over Jehovah’s Witnesses?

2021-01-02T15:01:51-05:00January 2nd, 2021|Commentary|

Saturday, January 2 The Devil . . . is a liar and the father of the lie. —John 8:44. Satan’s lies about the dead slander Jehovah. Those lies include the false teaching that the dead suffer fiery torment. Such teachings slander God! How so? In effect, they attribute to him, the God of love, the personality of the Devil. How does that make you feel? More important, how [...]

Satan’s influence over Jehovah’s Witnesses

2019-09-20T13:29:36-04:00September 8th, 2017|Commentary|

Friday, September 8 He will crush your head.—Gen. 3:15. When Jesus was born, Satan knew that this newborn child would grow up to become the promised Messiah. Would Satan reason that taking the life of a baby was going too far? Satan has no noble code of ethics. And with regard to the child Jesus, Satan did not hesitate to act. How? King Herod was greatly upset when [...]

Trust Jehovah or trust the brothers – which will you choose?

2022-11-14T11:21:23-05:00November 13th, 2022|WT Review|

This is a review of Watchtower study article #37 2022, entitled: You Can Trust Your Brothers  1. PEOPLE in Satan’s world do not know whom they can trust. They are constantly disappointed by the conduct of commercial, political, and religious leaders. That feeling extends to friends, neighbors, and even family members. This should not surprise us. The Bible foretold: “In the last days . . [...]

I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied

2022-11-06T19:00:53-05:00November 6th, 2022|Jeremiah|

“I did not send the prophets, yet they ran. I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied.” — Jeremiah 23:21 Who are God’s people? According to God’s own declaration His people, whom he likens to a flock of sheep, have been entrusted to the care of earthly shepherds. At the time Jeremiah issued Jehovah’s denunciations the Jews were God’s exclusive people and the city of [...]

Psalms #23 – Jehovah is my Shepherd

2022-10-11T11:06:21-04:00October 10th, 2022|Psalms|

The 23rd Psalm is probably the most popular and beloved Psalm in the entire collection. Its simplicity and imagery are very moving. Too bad the translators of the original English translations did not see fit to use God’s personal name like the Hebrew in which it was composed. “Jehovah is my shepherd” is even more personal and impactful.  David, of course, was a shepherd boy. He [...]

Psalms #20 – May Jehovah answer you in the day of distress

2022-09-27T06:29:03-04:00September 25th, 2022|Psalms|

The Hebrew Scriptures do not have very much to say about Satan, but Jesus sure did. It was appropriate that the promised “seed” of the woman should shed light upon the enigmatic, talking serpent of Eden. The enmity about which Jehovah spoke in the garden of Eden burst out on the world’s stage when Jesus was baptized. Immediately after being anointed by God, the holy spirit [...]
