The great crowd who come out of the great tribulation

Saturday, January 16 I saw . . . a great crowd . . . standing before the throne and before the Lamb. —Rev. 7:9. In 1935, Jehovah’s Witnesses came to realize that the great crowd do not literally have to be in heaven to stand “before the throne and before the Lamb.” Rather, their position is figurative. Even though they would live on earth, the great crowd could stand “before [...]

What will you do on the day of reckoning?

Monday, January 4 Wicked men and impostors will advance from bad to worse.​—2 Tim. 3:13. It is sad when humans act in a way that pleases the Devil. However, Jehovah is never blind to Satan’s tactics. He is fully aware of the pain we experience, and he can provide the comfort we need. We are blessed to serve “the God of all comfort, who comforts us in [...]

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

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 [...]

According to their desire to have their ears tickled

Friday, January 1 Go, . . . and make disciples of people of all the nations. —Matt. 28:19. All of God’s faithful servants want to learn how they can “fully accomplish” the ministry that they have been given to do. (2 Tim. 4:5) After all, this work is more important and more urgent than any other occupation in life. However, it can be a challenge to spend as much time [...]

The tail of the Dragon casts down a third of the stars

Wednesday, December 30 Angels . . . did not keep their original position but forsook their own proper dwelling place. —Jude 6. A significant number of angels joined Satan’s rebellion. Prior to the Flood, Satan lured at least some of them into having immoral relations with the daughters of men. The Bible reveals this truth by symbolically portraying the dragon as dragging a third of the stars of heaven [...]

You will hear a word behind you

Tuesday, December 22 [You] will hear a word behind you saying, “This is the way. Walk in it.” —Isa. 30:21. True, we do not hear God speak to us from heaven. He has, however, provided his written Word, the Bible, in which he gives us instruction. Additionally, Jehovah’s spirit moves “the faithful steward” to keep giving His servants their food supply. (Luke 12:42) What an abundance of [...]

What Will the Day of Jehovah Mean for You?

Tuesday, December 15 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after the people had marched around them for seven days. —Heb. 11:30.

The visionaries will have to be ashamed

Friday, December 11 At my guardpost I will keep standing. —Hab. 2:1. Habakkuk’s conversation with Jehovah gave him a calm heart. So he resolved to keep waiting confidently on Jehovah to act. This was not just a spur-of-the-moment reaction, for he repeated his resolve when he later said that he would “quietly wait for the day of distress.” (Hab. 3:16) What does Habakkuk’s resolve teach us? [...]

Woe to my worthless shepherd

Tuesday, December 8 Lord, whom shall we go away to? You have sayings of everlasting life. —John 6:68. Some today have been stumbled by an adjusted understanding of a Bible passage. Others have taken sides with apostates and other opposers who misrepresent our beliefs. As a result, some have deliberately begun “drawing away” from Jehovah and the congregation. (Heb. 3:12-14) How much better it would have [...]
