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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

The Eyes of the Blind Will Be Opened

2021-02-26T17:37:15-05:00February 25th, 2021|Isaiah|

This article has been revised from it originally posting in 2014 When Jesus walked through the land of Palestine he healed the sick and the lame. He opened the eyes of the blind and the ears of the deaf and expelled the demons from their victims with just a word. He even raised the dead. Yet, although God enabled him to perform all manner of jaw-dropping [...]

The Destroyer Will Be Destroyed

Where is your coating of plaster?

2021-01-31T08:57:31-05:00January 31st, 2021|Commentary|

Sunday, January 31 Truth is not in him. —John 8:44. Satan’s lies add grief and suffering to mankind. Parents who are grieving the death of a child may be told that God has taken the child, perhaps to be an angel in heaven. Does this satanic lie lessen their pain or add to it? The false teaching of hellfire has been used to justify torture, including [...]

It kept throwing truth to the earth

2021-01-29T17:28:10-05:00January 29th, 2021|Daniel|

America has always been touted as the land of the free. The Statue of Liberty is an icon recognized around the world. America smashed the yoke of slavery it inherited from the British colonial masters in a brutal Civil War. America and its allies defeated the Nazis and Fascism during the Second World War and outlasted the tyrannical Soviet Union. Now, though, all of that is [...]

You will be hated on account of my name

2020-12-30T06:02:29-05:00December 29th, 2020|Page One|

Jehovah’s Witnesses are all about the future. Surviving the violent end of this wicked world and living forever in paradise on earth is a compelling vision —a valid hope, solidly based upon the Sacred Scriptures. Indeed, let your Kingdom come! When Jesus walked the earth he was keenly interested in the future. He was aware of what was written in the Hebrew prophets and Psalms. He [...]
