No, you have not heard, you have not known

Sunday, September 5 Stop being molded by this system of things. —Rom. 12:2. Paul was concerned because some Christians were apparently being influenced by the unwholesome reasonings and philosophies promoted by Satan’s world. (Eph. 4:17-19) That can happen to any one of us. In a desperate attempt to turn us away from Jehovah, Satan, the god of this system of things, uses various tactics. One of [...]

From the Watchtower apostasy has spread

Friday, September 3 The existing authorities stand placed in their relative positions by God. —Rom. 13:1. Do elders comply with secular laws about reporting an allegation of child abuse to the secular authorities? Yes. In places where such laws exist, elders endeavor to comply with secular laws about reporting allegations of abuse. Such laws do not conflict with God’s law. (Acts 5:28, 29) So when they learn of [...]

The unrighteous one knows no shame

Saturday, August 7 We are not ignorant of [Satan’s] designs. —2 Cor. 2:11. Satan appeals to natural desires. We have a natural desire to learn skills that can help us provide for ourselves and our families. (1 Tim. 5:8) Often, we can gain those skills by attending school and being diligent students. But we must be cautious. The educational system in many countries teaches students not only practical skills but [...]

Until the spirit is poured out on us from above

Wednesday, July 28 As these things start to occur, stand up straight and lift up your heads, because your deliverance is getting near. —Luke 21:28. At some point, the people whose religions were destroyed may resent the fact that Jehovah’s Witnesses keep practicing their religion.

You found them to be liars

Tuesday, July 27 You put to the test those who say they are apostles. —Rev. 2:2. Anointed ones do not expect others to treat them in a special way. (Phil. 2:2, 3) They know that when Jehovah anointed them, he did not let everyone else know about it. So an anointed person is not surprised if some do not believe right away that he has been anointed. He [...]

There is nothing hidden that will not be exposed

Sunday, July 25 Children are an inheritance from Jehovah. —Ps. 127:3, ftn. Parents may at times feel overwhelmed by the challenges they face, but children are a gift from Jehovah.

And he answers those prayers by means of the Bible, our publications, and the example and advice of other mature parents in [...]

These are standing before the Lord of the earth

Wednesday, July 21 This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah says. —Ezek. 2:4. During the great tribulation, the message that we proclaim will likely change. Currently, we are preaching the good news of the Kingdom and we are endeavoring to make disciples. But at that time, we may well deliver a message as hard-hitting as hailstones. (Rev. 16:21) We may proclaim the impending doom of Satan’s [...]

One of its heads seemed to have been fatally wounded

Sunday, July 18 Jehovah’s day is coming exactly as a thief in the night. —1 Thess. 5:2. In the short time remaining before his “day” begins, Jehovah expects us to keep busy in the preaching work. We need to make sure that we are “having plenty to do in the work of the Lord.” (1 Cor. 15:58) When Jesus spoke about all the significant things that would happen [...]

Since 1935, Jehovah’s Witnesses have understood that the great crowd of John’s vision is made up of a group of faithful Christians who have the prospect of living forever on earth.

They hatch the eggs of a poisonous snake

Saturday, July 10 Trembling at men is a snare, but the one trusting in Jehovah will be protected. —Prov. 29:25. We can build up our courage now by publicly preaching the good news of God’s Kingdom.
