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 [...]

A calamity looms from the north, a great disaster

A continuation of the commentary on Jeremiah The fifth chapter of Jeremiah concluded with God posing the somewhat unsettling question: “But what will you do when the end comes”?  The sixth chapter opens with the answer: “Take shelter, O sons of Benjamin, away from Jerusalem. Blow the horn in Tekoa; light a fire signal over Beth-haccherem! For a calamity looms from the north, a great disaster.” [...]

But what will you do when the end comes?

Jesus said the good news of the Kingdom will be preached throughout the world and then the end will come. The Watchtower has been instrumental in accomplishing the global preaching work Christ foretold. To that end, the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society has published material in over 1,000 languages. The New World Translation has been published in over 100 languages. Since the end of the last [...]

I will contend further with you

Jehovah established marriage. In fact, God conducted the very first wedding in the Garden of Eden when He created a woman from one of Adam’s surgically removed ribs and then brought her to the man. Evidently, wedlock was intended as the only human institution. We know the sad ending of that original marriage.  Marriage, though, with all of its connotations, is used by God metaphorically. God [...]

Is it persecution or punishment?

Wednesday, April 7 All those desiring to live with godly devotion in association with Christ Jesus will also be persecuted. —2 Tim. 3:12. In 2018, more than 223,000 publishers of the good news lived in lands where our spiritual activities were banned or severely restricted. This is not surprising. True Christians expect to be persecuted. No matter where we live, secular authorities may suddenly and unexpectedly ban us [...]

God’s Word for Us Through Jeremiah

Jeremiah was originally commissioned by Jehovah to serve as a prophet to the nations and Jerusalem. In the opening chapter, God informed Jeremiah that He had sanctified him even before he was born. In that, we are reminded that those chosen to be in union with Jesus were foreordained before the founding of the world.  There is no evidence that Jeremiah personally conveyed denunciatory messages to [...]

Jehovah’s Witnesses and Jeremiah

QUESTION #1) Someone has just sent me a link to your article, Chapter 19 - Jeremiah, and whilst reading through, I have been prompted to ask two questions: #1) When you are discussing Judah ( God’s named people) and the warnings of Jeremiah against her, can you confirm/clarify to me, whether these references you discuss are being applied to Judah before her being taken captive by the Babylonians, [...]
