I am bringing calamity first on the city that bears my name

A continuation of the consideration of Jeremiah. In the 13th chapter of Jeremiah God instructed his prophet to tie a linen belt around his waist. Then he was to trek north to the Euphrates River and bury the belt in a cleft along the banks of the river. Sometime later Jeremiah was ordered to go retrieve the linen belt he had buried and it was ruined. [...]

So many have carried out evil schemes

A continuation of the examination of Jeremiah The Jews were in a binding covenant with Jehovah God, which they repeatedly broke. After nearly 1,000 years Jehovah became determined to bring calamity on the covenant breakers. God even ordered Jeremiah not to pray on behalf of the Jews. God would not be listening to their pleas for help. Going on, Jehovah said: “What right does my beloved [...]

The Watchtower conspiracy against Jehovah

There is an international conspiracy. It is not a wild theory. With Satan the Devil ruling the world how could there not be an anti-Christ conspiracy? Here is what the Watchtower had to say about it back in 1987 (Paragraph 13) :  As God views it, the United Nations is a colossal world conspiracy. Why? Because it declares itself set to gain the objectives that [...]

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 gods that did not make the heavens and earth will perish

Remaining in the 10th chapter of Jeremiah, Jehovah instructs his prophet to say to them: “The gods that did not make the heavens and the earth will perish from the earth and from under these heavens.” Not all those regarded as gods are lifeless idols made of wood and covered with gold. Some gods are spirit creatures, far more powerful and intelligent than humans, but still, [...]

The shepherds have behaved senselessly

A continuation of commentaries based upon Jeremiah. The tenth chapter of Jeremiah opens with Jehovah’s denunciation of Israel. “This is what Jehovah says: ‘Do not learn the way of the nations, and do not be terrified by the signs of the heavens because the nations are terrified by them. For the customs of the peoples are a delusion. It is just a tree of the forest [...]

You are living in the midst of deception

A continuation of the Jeremiah series. Unlike his prophet-contemporaries Daniel and Ezekiel who were in Babylon, Jeremiah was in Jerusalem when the siege began. You might say he was at ground zero. Although Jeremiah also penned an entire Bible book called Lamentations lamenting the fall of Jerusalem, he also expressed his grief in the book bearing his name. In the eighth chapter, the prophet wrote: [...]

Poisonous snakes that cannot be charmed

A continuation of the Jeremiah series.  It has been a long, gradual process. Over the past year of lockdowns the Governing Body has regularly announced the updated death toll from Covid. (It should be noted that people no longer seem to die of any other disease. Virtually all deaths are Covid related.) Just a few months ago the Governing Body said vaccination was a conscience matter. [...]

Can you make sacrifices to Baal and be saved?

A continuation of the Jeremiah series There were many gods worshipped in ancient times. The Bible names a few, such as Molech, Chemosh, Dagon, Nisroch, and a plethora of baals, which simply meant lord in Hebrew. Just among the Jews, Jehovah accused them of having as many gods as there were cities in Judah. (Jer. 2:28)  All of those gods, though, whatever they were called, [...]

This is the temple of Jehovah, the temple of Jehovah!

This a continuation of the Jeremiah series When Jesus walked the earth the rebuilt temple in Jerusalem was the center of worship of Jesus’ Father. However, the Son of God revealed a new form of worship was going to replace the temple-centered religion of the Jews. Amazingly, Jesus first made this startling revelation to a non-Jewish person and a woman at that! Speaking to a [...]
