Watchtower’s new world HQ nearly complete

//Watchtower’s new world HQ nearly complete

The new Jehovah’s Witnesses World Headquarters located in Sterling Forest will be completed in August, thanks to the help of more than 25,000 volunteers from across the country who contributed to its construction.

Some of the volunteers have stayed at the site since ground breaking three years ago, such as spokesperson for Jehovah’s Witnesses, Richard Devine, and his wife, while others have come for a week or a three-day weekend. With more than 1.2 million Jehovah’s Witnesses in the United States, many of which own construction businesses or work in construction, there is a high skill level working on the project.

“As Jehovah’s Witnesses,” Devine said, “we feel it’s a real privilege to help with the building of the headquarters.”

The entire campus, which borders Sterling Forest Lake (Blue Lake), consists of eight buildings, including four residence buildings and a large office building, where the 800 to 850 Witnesses will live and work. There are also two maintenance buildings and a parking garage.

Those that will be living at the 1.6 million square-foot world headquarters will start moving in this September, with the entire Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society slowly moving out of Brooklyn, the organization’s location since 1909. Residents all have taken a vow to be members of a religious order, according to Devine, and as they accomplish their ministerial work in connection with the headquarters, the order in turn provides housing, meals, health care, and a small allowance each month to cover incidental expenses, like toothpaste and socks.

And as far as children, Devine said that even though Jehovah’s Witnesses in general are very family-oriented, the world headquarters staff is made up of only single or married adults. If any couples decide to have children, they would leave and settle down to a more traditional home life elsewhere. There is no stigma attached to deciding to have children and no longer living at the headquarters, he said, and it is considered to be a personal decision.

“It’s a way of life that’s different than most,” Devine said, “but it is very rewarding.”

    … As they rode along, they came to a small body of water, and the eunuch said, “Look! Water! Why can’t I be baptised?” “You can, Philip answered, if you believe with all your heart.” And the eunuch replied, I believe and take a vow to be a member of a religious order. I will get a small allowance each month for toothpaste so that I can smile a lot and pretend I’m happy and I will share my bagfuls of socks with the needy. He stopped the chariot, and they went down into the water and Philip baptised him. And when he came out of the water the eunuch knew immediately that he was now a member of a spirit directed organisation, segregated and even more controlled, but with a roof over his head, three hot meals a day and health care.
    And he went off wearing a hard hat in order to accomplish his ministerial work in connection with the headquarters.
    I for one am so happy to have been baptised in the name of the Son of God. Before any affiliation with an earthly organisation. Before I needed three elders judging my worthiness as to baptismal material. Before my right heart condition to undergo Christian baptism depended on my oath to such a worldly un-Christ-like excuse for a “religion.”
    I’m ok btw, probs with a kidney now, but really ok.

    • Beverly kenyon

      Hiya Patri, love that post of yours. Your body might be betraying you but your mind is as sharp as ever. Keep going. Despite the kidney thing good to hear you’re ok.

    • Burt Reynolds

      I agree absolutely. Genesis clearly point out….In the beginning was the donation, and the donation was without limit and was given weekly. And the organisation looked at the donation and said ‘ we have more money going out than we have coming in! Let us sell up and build ourselves a nice home before it all goes.’ And it came to pass that hard hats were given out all round and everyone donated more to make the governing body comfy. And it was a morning and an evening, the day before the tribulation…. Glad you are feeling more chirpy Patri. Such good news for you.

    • Annie

      fantastic reply, Patri, absolutely fantastic! HOW can they live with themselves in such unashamed luxury when other needy brothers & sisters are merely barely surviving……NO, it’s wrong, totally wrong. I’m in stomping mode now, I can’t bear the thought of free help from people who maybe are worrying how to pay their rent this month & yet they joyfully gave, out of the loving condition of their hearts, because they thought they were helping to build something to the glory of Jehovah. No, No, No. it’s morally wrong…….I’m crying now at this. I used to give out that the Pope/Catholic church & the Royal family of the UK could wipe out debt for the majority of earth with their fantastic fortunes & now, the GB are going down the same road with their own so-called brothers & sisters!

      I think I might be rendered speechless a lot in the future by belonging to this site – well, not exactly speechless, but more like needing to rearrange my lounge furniture more often…..that happens when I am angry.
      Maybe I should have asked to go there, I could have had a free pair of socks.
      Patricia, dear lady, I am deeply sorry to hear you are unwell, poor love, may Jehovah give you His strength. Have you looked at herbal remedies/treatments? (Yes, pathetic question, I know, but I am a huge believer in what Jehovah has provided for us)

      Your whole ewatchman family is there with you tomorrow morning, love you sister ?

      • patri

        I know Joseph, I know. I love you all too. Said I’d rather not have a transfusion when asked, lost a lot of blood so op brought forward three weeks. Going to theatre in an hour. Thinking of everyone of you and most of all my Robert.
        Much love sweetie x

          No escape from God’s spirit / love Psalms 139:

          7 Where can I escape from your spirit, And where can I run away from your face?
          8 If I were to ascend to heaven, you would be there And if I were to make my bed in the Grave,* look! you would be there.
          9 If I would fly away with the wings of the dawn To reside by the most remote sea,
          10 Even there your hand would lead me And your right hand would take hold of me. 11 If I say: “Surely darkness will conceal me!” Then the night around me would become light.
          12 Even the darkness would not be too dark for you, But night would be as bright as the day.

          • patri

            And I have no doubts about Psalm 73 message Kevin. Thankyou so much.
            Well, all prepped and ready then told surgery is cancelled today due to infection. Probably operate over the weekend but main concern is to stop the bleeding. Had nephrology irrigation yesterday which failed so in a way I’m glad to eat and rest today! Much love to you Kevin

            • Sam

              ugh, that’s annoying. Glad you’re keeping in good spirits. Hope you are near a window so you can see the sunshine today. Thinking and praying for you patricia

            • patri

              Yes Sam, hello. I’m in a side room on the ward with a permanently opened window and a small view of the sky. Everybody here are such beautiful humans, the doctors, nurses, even the lady who vacuums every day! Their loving care, empathy and kindness puts me to shame, that’s how I feel. Managing to witness, the odd sentence here and there. But with one nurse to 8 patients its difficult to interfere with their busy ness.
              You must know how healing it is to know I’m in your prayers Sam, and I’m grateful to you and my family here. 😀

            • Sam

              I’m glad you’re being well looked after. And give yourself a pat on the back(not literally, you should rest hehe) for your planting seeds of truth 🙂

            • Leonard k

              I’m glad you are doing well Jehovah is with you always.

            • patri

              Your comforting words came at the right moment, exactly right moment Leonard, amazing! Just got through hairy low blood pressure episode (new medical term).

            • patri

              Couldn’t have done it without all your loving support everyone, but you all came with me to the operating theatre hiding under Robert’s cloak in the middle of last night. They fight for operating theatres at weekends here.
              Having lost too much blood I actually had the courage to refuse the offer of a blood transfusion this morning. Don’t get me wrong, the bragging is deserved for the one who has empowered me, since I alighted here, who directed me to our Source of Life.

            • Bklyn Kevin

              All thanks be to Jehovah for your safe deliverance.
              Psalms 34:
              15 The eyes of Jehovah are on the righteous, And his ears listen to their cry for help.
              17 They cried out, and Jehovah heard; He rescued them from all their distresses.
              4 I inquired of Jehovah, and he answered me. He rescued me from all my fears.
              1 I will praise Jehovah at all times; His praise will be on my lips constantly.

            • patri

              Beautious Kevin, you deserve another “POW” from me! Those verses have just given me such a rush. I felt those words Kevin. Felt them. ..Amen.

            • Song of Hannah

              Our prayers are still coming! Hang in there hun! We had a family member come through a low blood count of 3 just the other day. Blew the doctors away. Much love and virtual hugs! ?❤️

            • Beverly kenyon

              Hiya, Patri, will most definitely include you in my prayers. I can’t begin to imagine what you’re going through. Daunting and frightening. Hold on to your faith and keep that sense of humour of yours…..you need as much of those happy hormones (endorphins) as you can get. Hope you find comfort in those beautiful scriptures Bklyn Kevin sent you. Keep positive while you’re going through this most challenging time.

            • patri

              I’ve inadvertently blocked a user. I’m sorry I’m not sure how to reverse what I’ve done. I’m so sorry.
              I’ve been described as being blasé about my diagnosis but I prefer the word stoic. Not that I didn’t cry like a baby this morning during proceedings!
              But what’s to fear? Nothing. I’ve googled the operation and have one of the “lucky” cancers would you believe. I should be so lucky hahaha lucky lucky lucky. Steady on there girl, looks like you’re losing it…
              I hold my family here very closely and for the first time am experiencing a joyful feeling of what genuine Christian love feels like. Satan’s fate was sealed the moment Jesus died. Nothing to fear
              And yes Beverly you’re right. Kevin’s psalm did ring a loud bell as I’d paraphrased it to Anni in my welcoming her here. Its a comforting scripture I love so another bullseye from Kevin. 😀

            • Sam

              heh stoic. That’s what the hospital staff called me. I didn’t even know what it meant lol glad there’s a good prognosis. Mine too was “one of the best cancers you can get” great, I’ll take two then. 😛 keep smiling

            • Song of Hannah

              Patri maybe it was me? I am just now seeing a bunch of your messages. Been praying for you and sad to hear about the infection. Wish we could all go to the hospital there and give you hugs! But we can still pray, thanks to Jehovah!

            • patri

              Hannah, I would die of shock if you all came to the hospital, so I’m glad you can’t do that haha! I know, to say how happy Im feeling, sounds very odd indeed, especially as of right now, but, by way of explanation, one of the many wonderful things I’ve learned here is to know that the love and joy I felt at the beginning of my taking in knowledge of the one true God has been enforced through wider and deeper bible study and meaningful reliance on our Father through prayer. Here there’s no hindrance, obstacle, obstruction in our search for the truth. There’s always encouragement through our sharing. Therefore I feel ive blossomed into an unrecognisable person so unlike my WT cardboard cutout pretentious self. Here, ive gained strength, determination and courage by our brother who set up this miraculous website. And I’m eternally ( fingers crossed) grateful I happened upon such a phenomenon such as this. Sorry Hannah I don’t know where all that came from nor why its come out. Maybe its my way of saying… In a long winded way, that never ,as a WT sheep could I have faced what faces me with such aplomb.Never. And that’s what’s coming to us here; the power to face whatever is coming our way from now on. Power…
              Been zapped intravenously all day with antibiotics. Thumbs up for exploratory tomorrow morning!
              And….whoosh, fast asleep till its over.:D

            • Song of Hannah

              Aw Patri you are so sweet! In act, all of you dear friends here are such beautiful people. I feel so priveleged to be able to fellowship with true spiritual boreans that love the truth more than they love life.

            • Bklyn Kevin

              No escape from God’s great love / spirit .)
              Psalms 139:
              7 Where can I escape from your spirit, And where can I run away from your face?
              8 If I were to ascend to heaven, you would be there, And if I were to make my bed in the Grave, look! you would be there.
              9 If I would fly away with the wings of the dawn To reside by the most remote sea,
              10 Even there your hand would lead me And your right hand would take hold of me.
              11 If I say: “Surely darkness will conceal me!” Then the night around me would become light.
              12 Even the darkness would not be too dark for you, But night would be as bright as the day; Darkness is the same as light to you

              Psalm 63:
              8 I cling to you; Your right hand keeps fast hold on me.

              1 O God, you are my God, I keep looking for you. I do thirst for you. I am faint with longing for you In a dry and parched land, where there is no water.

              2 So I have looked upon you in the holy place; I have seen your strength and your glory.

              3 Because your loyal love is better than life, My own lips will glorify you.

              4 Thus I will praise you all my life; In your name I will lift up my hands.

              5 I am satisfied with the best and choicest portion, So my mouth will praise you with joy on my lips.

              6 I remember you while upon my bed; I meditate on you during the watches of the night.
              7 For you are my helper, And I shout joyfully in the shadow of your wings.

              Psalm 57:1
              Show me favor / [Patricia], O God, show me favor, For I take refuge in you, And in the shadow of your wings I take refuge until the troubles pass.

            • patri

              Oh how I relate to verses 6 and 7 Kevin… You must know that feeling too. 😀

          • Darren Wilks

            It is a privilege, Holy, holy, holy Father Jehovah! Please hold my hand and lead me as you direct. I am your vessel Father… Let it be!

        • Kevin b

          Wishing you the best Patri. We are all thinking of you, and hoping you have a speedy recovery.

          • patri

            Very kind Kevin. Always enjoy reading your comments I must say. Love it here don’t we! And Thankyou, your wishes mean a lot.:D

  • Beverly kenyon

    Why would Jehovah God need new headquarters? The whole world and beyond belong to him. Jehovah wants hearts and minds and true and pure worship. Not a new building and billions in the bank, which when the financial system collapse will disappear at the touch of a button. The Haughty Boasters will be impossible now boasting about their building achievement all with free labour. Yes, it’s wonderful to witness the brothers and sisters working together as one to achieve a massive building project, but mankind is on the brink of facing the biggest catastrophe such as the world has ever seen and they’re in hard hats and hi-vis vests on a building site! Through Brother King we just learned from Isaiah Chapter 6 how Jehovah will be correction them by their removal. Isaiah chapter 29 talks about the leaders blindness and inflicting their own blindness on the ones they’re suppose to be teaching, they’re shut off in a spiritual darkness, because you have to be blind to not know the horrific carnage that’s about to erupt. The battle lines are being drawn. My witness friend is going to be impossible now, bleating on about their new headquarters. Yawn!

    • Burt Reynolds

      Hello Beverly, It’s a worry because these brothers and sisters think they are earning a hearing with Jehovah by their work, but all they do is, as you say, slave blindly in the wrong court. I say worry, because I feel for these brothers who may no longer be able to see and I think that my sister who has been in near 50 years, will be one of them. However, I have written to her and her husband with articles written here from Robert and should I get a reply, I will let you all know.

      • Beverly kenyon

        Hiya Burt, now we know real bible truths we can see that they’re slaving in the wrong court, slaving being the correct word to describe their free labour. I think I can understand about how you feel regarding your sister and her husband. That’s amazing that they’ve been witnesses for 50 years. WoW! All you can do is the right thing by passing on all the new knowledge you know. It’s like when we first learned about the truth and we just had to tell anybody and everybody what we were learning about Jehovah and his purposes and Kingdom. It’s that same feeling. Maybe your sister have been thinking about things in the organisation, she’s seen a lot of changes and just maybe Jehovah is reaching out to her through you. At least you’re giving her something to think about. Or if she’s not receptive then she can just get rid of the written articles. Only Jehovah can read her heart, but you’ve done your bit. Hope you do get some feed back from her at least you’ll know how she feels about the information. It’s a tricky one, especially when it’s family, but you have to do the right thing now you know real bible truths. Fortunate for you Burt, you’re brilliantly articulate and amazing at writing and getting your point across so hopefully she’ll understand all the new bible truths. I look at it like detoxing from some of the bible doctrines I was originally taught. I always think of Jeremiah 5: 31 when I’m trying to tell a witness what I’ve learned now and they looking at me with pity in their eyes because I know they’re thinking, she’s gone full on apostate! Which by the way, I find really amusing. Also telling Jehovah about the situation is a great help. Just go with it Burt.

      • Leonard k

        many of the brothers and sisters have lost sight because of the watchtower G/B it is a little puzzling to me that many do not see what is really going on inside the watchtower and they live off the G/B very words them self they seem to have forgotten jehovah’s word

        Deuteronomy 8:3

        3 So he humbled you and let you go hungry and fed you with the manna, which neither you had known nor your fathers had known, in order to make you know that man does not live by bread alone but man lives by every expression from Jehovah’s mouth.

    • Leonard k

      I can only say there blessings will not go further then jehovah’s judgments and judgment will soon be apon them as well as with all of mankind.

      1 Peter 4:17

      17 For it is the appointed time for the judgment to start with the house of God. Now if it starts first with us, what will the outcome be for those who are not obedient to the good news of God?

      • Beverly kenyon

        Hiya, Leonard K, loved reading those scriptures you posted.Think you’re giving Bklyn Kevin a run for his money there. Lol. So I was going into the city centre today, which I did, and I wrote down 1Peter4.17, thinking that I would get to talking with the witnesses on the carts.They park up right in the middle of town. And that’s good. Strategic point. I looked three times but they hadn’t started working, must’ve gone on the ministry first. Was just going to ask them what meaning does that scripture have for them then hopefully drop into conversation one or two things I’ve learned from EWatchman. Nevermind,eh! Scripture is still written on my hand. Lol.

        • Leonard k

          I usually start a conversation witness or not but mainly the witnesses and I go to a subject lets for for example 1914 and I’m acting a bit confused while seasoning my words with salt and I say to them hey brother or sister maybe you could help me out? this time table does not seem to make any sense to me you think you could try and help me have a better understanding of it? and of course loving brothers and sisters always want to help and so we start our conversation I let them lead right into the heart of the matter and they ask me what is it you do not understand? and so I make my point kind of scratching my head and POW! you drop seeds of truth and you get them thinking and many times they say you know I’m not really sure about that I’m going to have to go look that up and research it because they just saw my point on how it does not make sense and they can not give me a clear answer. always make sure you are calm and that your words are seasoned be tactful let them lead but stay on point. be very loving even if the other person gets excited and if they get to excited about the matter then to avoid a battle just say well thank you for trying to help me I’m going to go over the scriptures and a deeper study.

          • Beverly kenyon

            Love it! Yeah, the key is not to flicker. Keep your cool. Just go with it. Leonard K don’t you think it’s ironic that we’re now having to witness to witnesses. If it wasn’t serious it would be laughable. Unbelievable! Thanks again for your insight and posting me those invaluable scriptures.

            • Leonard k

              your very welcomed I love posting scripture. and yes I do find it very ironic that here we are witnessing the truth about the truth. I often think I was never even baptized as a witness and yet Jehovah and his truth has overwhelmed my life delightfully I often questioning my self and ask my self what is Jehovah doing why do I love scripture so much? why is Jehovah allowing me to learn his word? I’m a sinner I am shameful I am not worthy of anything from Jehovah our heavenly father and yet in his infinite mercy he still shows me love he still spiritually feeds me but I am so ashamed and unworthy of anything I mentally fall to my knees feeling sadness and regret of being a sinner looking down knowing I do not deserve what the father has given me and yet he strokes my spirit with such underserved love and kindness and in my heart I can feel his undeserved forgiveness. I have a hard time grasping the scope of Jehovah’s love I am in awe

              1 John 3:1

              3 See what sort of love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are. That is why the world does not know us, because it has not come to know him.

              John 3:16

              16 “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.

              1 Timothy 1:15

              15 This saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. Of these, I am foremost.

              Luke 15:7

              7 I tell you that in the same way, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over 99 righteous ones who have no need of repentance.

              Matthew 18:12-14

              12 “What do you think? If a man has 100 sheep and one of them strays, will he not leave the 99 on the mountains and set out on a search for the one that is straying? 13 And if he finds it, I certainly tell you, he rejoices more over it than over the 99 that have not strayed. 14 Likewise, it is not a desirable thing to my Father who is in heaven for even one of these little ones to perish.

            • Burt Reynolds

              That was beautiful to read. Thank you.

            • Leonard k

              sorry I went off point and i had become somewhat spiritually deep in my last comment but I wanted to reflect some of what makes and keeps me spiritually strong I wanted to remind every one here about the kind of love that Jehovah has for us all. some times many of us can get tangled up in sadness of the way the world is and even while taking in spiritual food we tend to some times lose our selves in reflection of that sadness so lets always be mindful and joyful and rejoice with a glad heart for Jehovah is a god based on love and Jehovah never changes.

            • Beverly kenyon

              Hiya Leonard K, love some of the points you mentioned. And the scriptures. I seem to remember scripture better when someone points them out in the context of what they’re saying. That’s fantastic….you and Bklyn Kevin being blood brothers. I love Bklyn Kevin to absolute bits! And I know I’m not the only one who feel that way. I know he will always look out for you. I know what you mean when you talk about being a sinner and shameful and not worthy. I too feel that way every day. My sins haunt me. They stick to me like tar! Sometimes the shame overwhelms me. I can’t say sorry enough to to Jehovah. Last year I had to have a medical procedure and they had to knock me out. I could feel the anaesthetic going into my vein and I was determined to say sorry to Jehovah for all my awful sins, before the blackness took over. I thought if I don’t come out of it at least I got a last chance to say sorry. Of course it went well and I’m still alive! Lol. I count my blessings that I by a miracle, found Brother King’s site where I’m learning so much from everyone on this site. Everyone’s input is a learning experience for me. Thanks for sharing Leonard K.

            • Bklyn Kevin

              The Pharisee and the tax collector (Luke 18:9-14
              9 He also told this illustration to some who trusted in their own righteousness and who considered others as nothing:

              10 “Two men went up into the temple to pray, the one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.
              11 The Pharisee stood and began to pray these things to himself, ‘O God, I thank you that I am not like everyone else—extortioners, unrighteous, adulterers—or even like this tax collector.
              12 I fast twice a week; I give the tenth of all things I acquire.’
              13 But the tax collector, standing at a distance, was not willing even to raise his eyes heavenward but kept beating his chest, saying, ‘O God, be gracious to me, a sinner.’
              14 I tell you, this man went down to his home and was proved more righteous than that Pharisee. Because everyone who exalts himself will be humiliated, but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”

            • Beverly kenyon

              Thank you Bklyn Kevin. Much appreciation.

            • Leonard k

              as long as we all remember that we are sinner and admit our guilt to Jehovah and always be humble and meek loving and forgiving and most of all trying to live on every utterance out of the mouth of Jehovah while doing our best to be loyal and faithful. yes these things will be of great importance while we walk through the fires to come. and thank you it for that nice comment about my brother bklyn kevin I truly love him to very much.

            • Beverly kenyon

              Hiya Leonard K, you’re right, we should remember we’re sinners and imperfect, but really try to be loyal and faithful. I’m still working on the humble bit as I tend to go bonkers quite easily at unfairness, unkindness and stuck up people. There’s no need for it. I have a lot of time for both you and Bklyn Kevin. It just shines through that you both are trying to do the right thing by your love for Jehovah and treating people decently. From day one, Joseph and your brother Bklyn Kevin have been nothing but kind to me here on EWatchman. I don’t forget things like that.

            • Leonard k

              I am very happy that you found the Ewatchman there’s a wealth of accurate knowledge and spiritual food and I know you love Jehovah by being here and wanting to understand the truth and Jehovah loves you too and he will continue to bless you with wisdom and knowledge while you are on his path. yes we are all sinners many of us fall every day but we must pick our self up every time we stumble and fall that’s all Jehovah expects us to do he knows how imperfect we really are but his undeserved love and forgiveness really does leave me in AWE and no we could never repay Jehovah for all that he does for us no all we can do is try our best to change and be as spiritually clean as possible.

            • Beverly kenyon

              Hiya Leonard, thank you for all your kind words and encouragement. Like you I’m also in awe of Jehovah’s love, forgiveness and kindness. And we see that in his dealings with the ancient Israelites when time after time they ignored and betrayed him with their unfaithfulness. He pleaded with them to love him and come back to him. He even said how they pained the Holy One of Israel. It’s heartbreaking to read those accounts. So, yes I’m in awe like you about Jehovah God.
              I was reading in the news yesterday about on your highways in Virginia and somewhere else in your country that there were convoys of about thirty fully armed, with troops UN white trucks. Was that in your news Leonard. People were posting comments asking why were there armoured UN trucks with troops in them along the highways in your country. Just curious.

            • Leonard k

              I did not even know that had taken place. you see the way it is here in the USA is they wont posts a great many very relevant things on our local news there not about to tell the people in the USA what there up to. its interesting though if you can get the real news of many things going on in the use if you watch the news in other countries for example BB NEWS. I will make it a point to try and find a news article or video on those UN trucks and troops but I would not at all be shocked if they are getting ready to handle hundreds of thousands under civil unrest do to a USA economic crash and of course the entire world will follow the same course. the controlling world powers that be know what is coming and that’s just one reason many countries are conducting there own training drills around the world. these drills that the USA has been conducting jade helm go and look that up you will be shocked if you did not know. Russia is doing the exact same thing conducting drills but at least they give there people some warning they don’t even keep there people in the dark like the USA does.

            • Beverly kenyon

              Hiya Leonard K, I read about those UN armoured Personnel trucks on DailyMail Online yesterday (Monday) on your roads in your country. You normally only see those UN trucks in war torn countries. Maybe they were just passing through before being being shipped out. When it’s “Egyptian against Egyptian” as Brother King’s article, The Downfall of America brings out they will unleash Jade Helm so you’re right to mention that point. It’s coming. Thanks Leonard K for letting me know.

            • Beverly kenyon

              Hiya Joseph, thank you for that YouTube vid. That was scarey! It makes those Hollywood doomsday films look amateurish because what was seen in the vid is the real deal! Not just in your country but it looks like other countries as well. Our bobbies (policemen) on the beat and in crowd control now look like the Terminator….hardcore with their hardware.

            • Hiya Sister,

              Just posted another one, I’m feeling all “Leonardie”. Hope I don’t get a lash from the watchman police ??
              System is coming unglued fast.

            • Beverly kenyon

              That’s funny. Vilhelm might get annoyed at you for going full on Leornardie, compadre. Lol. Thanks Joseph. The sad thing is that when they unleash their weaponry, it’s going to be on their own citizens. What a betrayal. No wonder nations are symbolised as beasts….they’re beast like in their treatment of their own countrymen.

            • Bklyn Kevin

              I am grateful that that you shared this post with us, and in fact after viewing this post I went ahead and consolidated your post with two other of Roberts’ post as to emphasize Roberts’ points in those / his articles on face book and google.

              Extra! extra! ….Read all about it.
              Pale horse is on the move, seal’s soon to opened And authority well be given them over the fourth part of the earth to kill with a long sword and with food shortage and with deadly plague and by the wild beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:7-8.

              Ezekiel 14:21.
              For this is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah says: ‘So it will be when I send my four punishments—sword, famine, vicious wild animal, and pestilence—against Jerusalem to cut off man and animal from it .

              Jeremiah 15:2.
              And if they say to you, ‘Where should we go?’ you must say to them, ‘This is what Jehovah says: Whoever is for deadly plague, to deadly plague! Whoever is for the sword, to the sword! Whoever is for the famine, to the famine! And whoever is for the captivity, to the captivity!”’
              3 “‘And I will appoint over them four calamities,’ declares Jehovah, ‘the sword to kill, the dogs to drag away, and the birds of the heavens and the beasts of the earth to devour and to destroy.

              Revelation 16:15.
              Look! I am coming as a thief. Happy is the one who stays “awake” and keeps his outer garments, so that he may not walk naked and people look upon his shamefulness.

              Peter 3:10.
              But Jehovah’s day will come as a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar, but the elements being intensely hot will be dissolved, and earth and the works in it will be exposed.

              Isaiah 55:6.
              Search for Jehovah while he may be found. Call to him while .he is near.
              James 4:8 Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you indecisive ones.

            • Beverly kenyon

              Hiya Bklyn Kevin, you’re so right to post those scriptures as reminder of the momentous event that’s shortly to take place. After I viewed the YouTube vid that Joseph posted I couldn’t get Rev6:7-8 about the Pale Horse out of my mind. A fourth part is a lot.Horrific. You get a sense of how that event will happen. All those scriptures tie in neatly with each other. Thanks Bkly Kevin.

            • LW

              Agreed. It’s like a propaganda campaign conducted by the Western media. It looks so silly to us from the outside, but if all you use to look at the world is through the lens of that media, your view will be warped.

              Pardon me for being rude and interjecting on this conversation….I feel as if I need to speak on behalf of the poor brothers and sisters who work those carts…
              They are really doing the best they can..and it takes a lot of bravery to speak so openly to the public.
              They are helping ones get to know the basics of the truth ..just as we all have had the opportunity to here….I take my hat off to them…they are fulfilling scripture and preaching the good news ..and until that is done the end that we all so wish for cannot come.
              Why would anyone here wish to hinder them in that work..that mentally and emotionally hard work……
              Those that approach such ones..can I ask you all…do you yourselves engage in public preaching of gods word?
              It is very easy for us here to approach these dear brothers and sisters…with our new found understanding…and as tactful as you may be..and as loving and kind…are any of you prepared to bear the consequences of one of these brothers or sisters if they were to stumble spiritually and lose all faith in Jehovah.

              In deed..do any of us here even have the authority or permission by Jehovah to do such a thing…
              It is Jehovahs Holy Spirit that will lead them to know what we know….when and if they are ready….we need to be there for our brothers and sisters…to support and encourage them…when it all comes down..or for anybody that is obviously troubled and needing answers……
              Please..I ask of all reading this..do not approach these ones working on the carts or publicing witnessing …..asking these questions..because this is what TRUE apostates do to them.
              It leaves many not just thinking but shaken..with no further support systems there for their faith…..some just get weaker and weaker…and drop away all together…
              You may very well be snuffing out a smouldering wick…..and if you do that…he will hold you accountable for it….

              We have all been given a gift in knowing the things we do….it is a gift we must use wisely and with the sole purpose of building up our brothers and encouraging them in the dark days ahead….with genuine love and compassion

              I know you mean well…but think about it….if he sees a honest hearted person walking the street…the Angels will direct him to that cart so he can find the basic truths…will Jehovah not be strengthening that brother or sister with the right words for that particular person in need…..and then you come along and sow seeds of doubt.
              Can you see you would be working against the Holy Spirit ……
              We who know what we know..should not be causing divisions…but instead BUILDING UP…..for what is coming.

              Totally agree with you! This knowledge is needed for those crying and sighing over all the detestable things being done – the healthy do not need a physician. I can totally understand Robert addressing the leaders of God’s people, however. They need to know as they will receive a heavier judgement.

            • Thinking

              Hi Song Of Hannah,…
              I appreciate Roberts work as well..that’s why I’m here and have been for a number of years now…..Robert like Perimeno is an invited one of Jehovah.. have been given a very serious work to do..
              A commission from Jehovah and I am deeply grateful for both of these brothers ..Jehovah does not do any discipline without warning his people first….the leaders of the society know of Roberts work and warnings..he has been very successful in his commission….very few could ever do his work….
              Yet those that are sighing and groaning as to what is going on in Jeruseleum,.( organization ).. Are not ignored by Jehovah….his Holy Spirit will rescue those ones…in some way .”….
              I was inactive for two years..and a very embittered and angry sister at that( no I’m not a brother hehe )….it has taken me a long time and much hard work to regain my balance..and I am still a work in progress…as we all are here….thank you for your kind words and encouragement sis…this is what it’s all about xx

            • Beverly kenyon

              It’s appropriate that you chose the name ‘thinking’ because it’s taken you a fair few days to reply to my post. Yes it’s great the work they do on the carts but every time I see them there’s not a lot of talking being done, just standing there holding the magazines. Where I live they park the carts across the road then sit in their car or park the carts on the narrow pavement then they sit way back on the little park on the benches and looking you wouldn’t know if they’re with the carts. I’ve actually heard people comment on that impractical arrangement. A few times I’ve gotten some of the literature so I can pass it on to ones I’ve personally spoken to about the truth and I’ve exchanged pleasant words with the witnesses on the carts and told them to keep up the good work and I hope they’re successfull in reaching out to interested ones. So unless you’re actually there which you’re clearly not I suggest you keep your criticism. And if they’re faith is strong I really don’t think them being asked questions would stumble them from a passing stranger. They’re allowed to speak and talk to people about their beliefs but no one else is allowed that same favour??? And yes, because we know what we know and have learned on this site we should BUILD UP by speaking up about the very things we’ve learned, for what’s coming. So please don’t come out of nowhere and try and muzzle me. A benefit of leaving the WT is that I now have free speech and I can use MY thinking ability that Jehovah bestowed on me. It’s because of ones like you with your holier than attitude I will never set foot in a Kingdom Hall again!

            • Thinking

              Ah Beverley….am I really holier than anyone…did I infer that anywhere in my comment.
              I have not come out of nowhere….and I consider myself the lowest of the low..in and out of the Kingdom Hall.
              I was inactive for two years ….and I found Robert a number of years ago..I was on his old forum..and have been here all along…..
              In no way am I trying to muzzle anybody….for have I muzzled myself.?..am I not using my freedom of speech as well..so why would I muzzled anybody…..never would I do that.
              But with this freedom of speech we and that means I as well….need to look after our brothers and sisters….
              There are reason s why the brothers sit how they do and not talk to anyone that passes by but wait on an invitation to do so.
              There are legal restrictions that each individual council of that area puts on the society so as to be able to do the cart work.
              Our council here makes sure we sit back from the cart…we are not to engage anyone in conversation…but they must approach us first……..other councils give different instructions which we must sign an agreement to.
              It is a very legalised area of witnessing ..and insurances etc must be taken out.
              My words were not meant or directed as criticism to anybody here ..I’m very sorry if I have hurt your feelings as that was not my intention..and never would be.

              You see the faith of many are not strong …we are all very tired and worn out and limping along.
              Many brothers and sisters are so burdened down with so many responsibilities and illness or extremely serious problems…that they openly say now that they are Barley surviving in the truth…..we are all just hanging on by a thin thread..even many that are at the carts.
              Sister Beverly…if I was at your congregation ..or you were at mine….and if you really knew me and my story…..we would be strong friends and sisters ..we would be working shoulder to shoulder in the faith..and you would defenetly know I was not holier than anybody else…and I think we would get on just fine….I would,love to have a sister in my cong who knows these things and to share such knowledge with…..to lean on..and be there for when she needed it too.
              There are too few of us..and it is indeed lonley in a cong knowing TTATT……believe me sis…I am nowhere near being holier than anybody….just a plain old battle weary sis…who won’t be pushed out of her cong by mean cruel old elders…….so for me..I would love to have you by my side…..?

            • Beverly kenyon

              Well thank you ‘thinking’ (that’s a lot of t’s in a sentence), now I feel bad about some of the things I said to you. I would NEVER EVER WILLINGLY hurt someone’s feelings. I don’t go looking for trouble but if out of the blue I’m being told off for something I clearly have not done I will fight my corner. I take it on board your feelings regarding the witnesses on the carts but if they’re so restricted by council rules then they need to review that type of witnessing work. When I see them either sat away from the carts or stood there like statues with a painted on smile of sorts I think is that really productive but those are MY thoughts. I’m not in charge so I’m sure they know what they’re doing. The interaction between them and the people seems digital and from a distance. But again those are my thoughts. You make me feel so sad because I can sense your tiredness and anguish. You’re doing better than me in that at least you’re still going to Jehovah’s house. You’re not giving in despite mean cruel elders. I really don’t know how you do. I remember Brother King saying, would you do it for Jehovah? And you definitely are doing it out of love for Jehovah God. When I see a person doing that it makes me emotional and it makes me really think. Please forgive me for being harsh in my words. I don’t want to disrespect you. I hope you find comfort knowing that there’s not long to go until Jehovah wraps up this system, and I know with all my heart that will be happening especially now that bible prophecies have been revealed to us through Brother King. Once again I’m sorry.

              My Dear sis Beverly….I had a tear slip down my cheek as I read your post…this is what true brotherhood or sisterhood is all about …it’s okay sis…you have done nothing wrong for me to forgive you….I wish I could give you a big hug.
              We are all so very tired..and many of us bear scars…massive ones..that only Jehovah can erase in that New World.
              I know you have yours as well…..Unfortunatly sometimes it takes such scarring for us to look harder into Gods Word….we peer intently into it….to find a glimmer of hope..anything..a reason to keep trying….so our pains and scars ..actually help us…
              I did walk away for two years..packed up my books and even my bible….put them way out of sight….tried so hard to walk away…eventually I could see I was in need of Jehovah like never before..and like so many here..got my bible out and read and read and read…All the time supplicating Jehovah for understanding as to why such things happened in the cong..why such cruelness…harshness..coldness.
              He showed me the weeds and wheat scripture..yes off course I’d read It a hundred of times before ..but now for the first time I understood it….I had my answer…..
              Under much sufferance I went back……and then I found ewatchman and Perimeno…more understanding…whew!!!
              Yet it took me a long time to work on my anger..bitterness…..you see the thing is that many forget…that at the meetings…..there is still wheat….and all I could see was the weeds…but now I see the wheat first ….yes I see the weeds to..but I don’t dwell on them…not anymore..I have learnt to step over them…to get to the wheat…
              Hang in there sis…and I always will encourage my brothers and sister to go back to their meetings ……it’s hard..but it’s doable….I have had many many blessings since going back .
              The biggest blessing we can have..is to help others in the cong….but we need to be there..to be amongst them….we really need them..but sis..even if they don’t realise it yet..they really need us too.?…it’s a two way thing…..for there is nothing finer than to help our fellow brother

              You are needed sis….very badly..Jehovah has so few to work with..so don’t stay away to long…
              Much love to you sis

            • Beverly kenyon

              Hello Sister Thinking, thank you for replying. I just wanted to know that things were good between us because when I read your comments I sense sadness and a really gentle manner which is lovely to see. Your sadness reminds me a little of a lady called Rose who used to post here on EWatchman but she took issue and went a little bonkers at Brother King suggesting that maybe it might be the right thing to go back to the Kingdon hall if a person felt that was the right thing to do. I still wonder if Rose is doing ok. As for me going back, I can’t see that happening even though I’ve given it much thought. I might make the odd visit and it makes Brother Lockhart so happy when he see’s me there and I make a point of sitting with him because it means a lot to him as him and his wife are the ones who taught me for all that time…..she’s since died….cancer took her and he’s on his own now. Since I found EWatchman I’m the happiest and confident in my religion I’ve ever been….I know how things are going to unfold and there’s going to be consequences for the GB and WT. When I was in as time went on I was becoming more deflated, more unhappy, more resentful and demoralised so it didn’t take much for me to burn off out of there. I gave up my way of life along with friends ( my Prince collection and other artists deemed worldly, Stephen King books…classy, lol, and other things that were holding me back from baptism…..which I didn’t mind because I had to do the right thing ) to be replaced with school ground behaviour ( cool kids gang ), bad attitude, bad manners, bullying, apathy and judgemental and self righteous, cold and unkind behaviour. I felt I was slowly dying inside and I felt bad about myself because I felt that way. I gave it my best shot and I just couldn’t keep living like that plus something really bad and horrific happened in my family and I had to deal with it and try and fix it and witnesses who knew about some of it just blanked me and not once asked how my family was doing. It was my worldly friends who was the kindest and helpful along with some family members. It was a really dark time. So no sister Thinking, I would wreck my own faith if I went back or if I saw some of those self righteous faces I think I would literally fight them. I knew those people for a few years and they’re looking straight through me like they’re something special all because I left!! Well try asking me why I left is what I would say to them. I’m not better than them and they’re not better me! Jehovah knows how I feel about this problem of going. He knows it haunts me and it does. I’ve only ever tried to do the right thing ever since I became a witness even though it always ends up the wrong thing. It’s a constant battle! I’m no longer the little witness trying to fit in anymore…I’ve grown a lot more spiritually thanks in part to the bible truths I’ve learned here on this site and reading other people’s experiences and learning from what they’re writing in their posts about the bible and being sent scriptures to look at. I appreciate those things….so why go back to unhappiness. Brother King said, a person has to ask the question……and I’ll get it right this time as I think I quoted it wrongly in my last post to you…..would you do it if Jehovah asked you to?? Well I’m still going over that question in my mind. I know we had a bit of a shaky start but I’m very happy that I got to know you a bit. Thank for you for your kind post.

              If and whenever you feel ready to go back..as congregations do change…..mine is now a beutiful one…from one of the worst too one of the best…( elders were changed ) .it is a light bubbly happy one with a strong spirit to it….a good spirit.
              I’m sorry yours isn’t like that…so if ever you rethink your position..know I am here to help you if you need it..okay sis.
              I am terribly sorry something so horrific happened in your family…I,would gladly undo it if it was possible….but it never is ..is it…not yet anyway.
              We will be free of all these obstacles soon…I wish you well sis..and I’m so happy we got to know each other….keep the faith sis…..and never give up ….all the best to you…….

              I’ve spent plenty of time on the carts. Much of it is talking with other bros and sisters who happen to be passing and ones who are aquanted with the truth as merely a social club. Approaching our bros on the carts with a scriptural discussion in mind will be welcomed I’m sure

            • Volcanic

              you are quite right in saying these brothers & sisters need building up & yes, they do marvelous work, however, to quote you if I may;

              “In deed..do any of us here even have the authority or permission by Jehovah to do such a thing…
              It is Jehovahs Holy Spirit that will lead them to know what we
              know….when and if they are ready….we need to be there for our brothers and sisters…to support and encourage them…when it all comes down..or for anybody that is obviously troubled and needing answers…..”

              & to qualify….”It is Jehovahs Spirit which will lead them..when & if they are ready”

              Jehovah guides every person to Him in some way or another before they even come into the Truth, he knows their heart condition & if/when they are ready, as we are all very much aware of.

              Therefore, it follows that if Jehovah knows of a baptised person who is floundering, then he will make certain they are guided to this site. No matter which way they are to be guided, they will end up here if their heart condition is right.

              Taking myself as an example, I was baptised over 18 yrs ago & fell out of the Truth, but I never stopped loving Jehovah. I came back into the Truth about 2 yrs ago but many times I have been stumbled by ones in the congregation, including 2 anointed ones & an elder, because of things which troubled me in the organisation. I was unable to attend meetings for health reasons for many months & never stopped studying, BUT, in my studies I learnt so many things about the GB that confused me. I was literally crying every night whilst trawling through endless apostate sites & videos. I was crying to Jehovah & begging Him to forgive me for appearing to be against him….He knew I wasn’t against him, just the GB.

            • Volcanic

              sorry, hit the reply button too quickly!
              Eventually I found one YouTube channel which looked good, the speaker was only against the GB & the words he spoke rang true. Sadly though, on another of his videos he admitted to now being an atheist….something which I can’t understand, because once you know about Jehovah & His creation, there surely ought to be no going back!
              Anyway, to cut a long story short, on one of those videos I asked questions & somebody (I don’t know who it was) directed me to this site & I thank whoever it was daily………but, I firmly believe that Jehovah had his hand in it.

              So, my, long winded point, is that if a witness has doubts that any of us might bring to the fore by speaking to them, then Jehovah Himself will make certain that that person is directed in the right way, providing that their heart condition is right. If, however, that person is stumbled to the point of no return then obviously their heart isn’t steadfast enough.

              I don’t honestly believe that anyone on this forum deliberately goes out to stumble anyone.

              Wow Volcanic what a encouraging post from you and I can only agree full heartedly with all that you have said…in fact much of your story reflects my very own….I do not know if you are a brother or sister at this point ? Jehovahs Holy Spirit truly does work like this..he will never let a righteous one totter….
              And nor do I believe anyone here wishes to stumble anyone……
              Many brothers and sisters are stumbled…for many different reasons…..and they may stumble many times….so what…it does not mean they are weak spiritually…not at all…in fact they can grow from that stumbling

              A couple of my elders used the same reasoning as you have just used here…that if we were to stumble some one from the point of no return..then was their faith no good anyway….so they justified themselves when they stumbled ones ….
              Yet Jehovah clearly shows if we were to stumble someone to the point of distinguishing their flame…..we would be found guilty before him..
              .
              Mathew 18:6……but to whoever stumbles one of these little ones who put faith in me, it is more beneficial for him to have hung around his neck a millstone such as has been turned by an ass and to be sunk in the wide open sea.

              You see that little flickering flame may be only just have the strength to be just that…very little and just going ….of no great significance as to giving of light…but that little flame may be able to carry on right thru the the end and thru the tribulation. And into the new world….just by being little and not giving out…..but if someone was to come and extinguish him…..and it was to die off all together…..then who would Jehovah find responsible for that…

              Many harsh elders have done just that……..Jehovah was very happy with that little flame..so much so that he has even mentioned such ones in the scriptures..left alone and lovingly encouraged..that little flame may very well have survived right thru to the end…who but Jehovah will ever know now…and the thing is…Jehovah knew all about that little flame and wanted him anyway….

              We with our knowledge must also act with caution and insight with these little flames…some are not very strong …and would never survive having the 1914 bomb hit them….they certainly wouldn’t get any support for their doubts with in the cong …
              So why put them in that danger…

              Because we cannot read hearts ..we must act with discernment…I have learnt the hard way ….and yes I dropped the 1914… And the child abuse bomb ….all for no purpose..but with all genuiness and good intentions.

              Over time I came to see that I was indeed just hurting my brothers ..as they were not ready for these things…for whatever reason..it doesn’t matter.
              I was doing more damage than help….

              We can help those little flames in the very near future ….with comfort and love and encouragement..that all these things happening are a good thing..as it was all for told ..and not to give up in our God Jehovah…….

              I have worked on the cart only once..we are a small town and it simply does not work in such a setting……we barley ever have anyone pick up litriture..and we are not allowed to engage them in conversation unless they engage us.
              Many brothers and sister now refuse to work it as they find it very deflating…..
              Yet they work very well in the big cities..and I’m sure Jehovahs Angels will direct good hearted people to them….

              A brother Sam said he would welcome a spiritual conversation whilst working the cart…so would I Sam ….even if they bought up the 1914 or whatever they wanted to..I would absolutely love it…but I would hate to see my brothers and sister flounder with being confronted with such things…and they are confronted ……by a number out there who used to be witnesses…..and it does shaken a lot of them…..for they have no back up……perhaps they are even that little flame…..for they are scattered and thrown about without a Shepard …..I’m just saying…and I firmly believe it…..we need to be tender with them…..it will take each one a long time to come to terms with what we here have learnt.
              I took along time….and if I try to wake some one up….which I personally do not do as I do not feel it is my buisness to……well I would want to be there for them all the way on their journey so they had back up and support……and volcano…if I had known you..I would have been there for you….but as there are so few of us..Jehovah reached down and gave you his helper and guided you….as he will with all his righteous hearted ones …HE will always find them…..we don’t need to find them or make them…his Holy Spirit will do that…..the helper is awesome in his powers of direction.

              you’re right, we need to be discerning and caring. I don’t think any of us have in mind dropping the big 1914 bomb on our poor brothers just yet. But helping them to think and reason on things as it comes into conversation would be appropriate. If we know the answer (at least to some degree) it would be wrong to not try to help steer them. Knowing these things stumbled me at first because I wasn’t ready. I was still in “society” mode, full speed ahead pioneering, on at conventions, looking to go to the many schools. Wasn’t the right time, but were it not for a brother who was fairly vocal about questioning, and relying on the bible instead of the wt I wouldn’t be at my present understanding. Jehovah certainly had in a hand in that as you Said. There’s a balance somewhere, and I definitely don’t claim to have it yet. Perhaps you’re a bit closer to it than I

              Thank you, Thinking. I am a sister, I am from the UK originally. I checked out your profile & also some of your replies in this forum & I am truly, deeply, sorry to hear that you lost your son – that is incredibly sad.
              Is your name Sharon & your email still correct? I would like to be in contact with you, you are very sweet. Btw, what does TTAT mean?
              I also found a reference in the/your comments I read from someone who quoted a letter in another forum & I have just spent ages reading it, it is very interesting, in fact I have signed up to that forum because I want to get a copy of the entire letter, (ref here for you to remember http://e-jw.org/index.php?threads/test.25/)
              You are good to be still associating with your congregation, I am still struggling about it. Today is the first meeting at the ‘old’ KH that we used to use as a group months ago & I really should go…..but, I just can’t bring myself yet. Next week is the convention in Madrid & I won’t be going, so the week after I really must use ‘the boot’ to get myself there. I still haven’t ‘forgiven’ the GB or the elders in our congregation for their lack of interest in a lost sheep, or forgiven the anointed sister who suddenly decided to stop studying with me to help bring me back into the fold…..sad, innit!

              I still have the lingering fear that it was Jehovah who told them to ignore me….yes, I know! It is a very naughty thought I have suffered with for months, that Jehovah had rejected me because I didn’t love Him enough! Very foolish, but I think by allowing me to find this site that Jehovah actually gave me the poke in the eye to waken me up & I am fully awake now 🙂

              Well! tbh, I am going back to bed, I have been awake since 5 am with a tickly cough… yikes, another excuse not to go to the meeting! But, I will be spending my Sunday studying this site even further, in fact I have bookmarked the article ‘Imagining Paradise’ as my Sunday treat.

              Much love to you & I look forward to seeing many more of your comments here xoxoxo (I can’t find any emoticons on this site so I have to make them up as I go along.)

              HI Volcano.
              First volcano may I ask you to go and remove my name from your post sis…..this is very important ..if you cannot do it can Robert do it please.
              Sis..never ever doubt that Jehovah witnesses are his people…no matter what happens in the org….that is where you need to be.
              Jehovahs people have always had errors…..just as it was in the wilderness…when many argued for Arron to build the Golden calf…and many sided with him….and were then destroyed for such bad works.
              But where did the greater number remain…did they leave and go off into the wilderness…in disgust with those in the smaller number who sinned badly….no they stayed…and waited for Moses/ Jesus to return….in doing that they showed great faith in Jehovah.
              We must show the same sort of faith also….Jehovah will correct all the error..and hurt …

              There are so many lovely brothers and sisters …go and find them….surround yourself with such ones …they will strengthen you.
              I think in all fairness to the current GB..they are trying very hard to bring back the lost sheep..I was one of them….but sis…I had to take responsibility for my own spirituality first…he wanted to see that from me ….he wanted to see me take those first steps and he watched me for a while..then he stepped in…he aided me from then on…
              You can do this Volcanoe…just one step at a time…
              Yes of course you can contact me..but you must not put my email up in public sis..okay…especially on the forum..
              One other thing sis….I remember a brother giving a talk…and he said…

              are you comfortable in the truth ..if you are..you must be doing something wrong…because the way of the truth is cramped and narrow….it’s supposed to be hard……

              I didn’t understand that comment at the time as it was many years ago….but I sure do now…?

              Sis

          one other thing bklyn kevin is my brother he has taught me and helped me so greatly I am in awe if it was not for brother Robert king and my brother kevin and most of all Jehovah I would be totally lost. but thank you for your kind words sister. may Jehovah bless you with truth and draw you close to him.

          • Beverly kenyon

            Bklyn Kevin is your biological brother? Or spiritual brother? Either way, I’m so glad you got the help when it was needed the most and you know about and love our Heavenly Father. Leonard K we’re all struggling in our own way but we know how things are going to unfold shortly. Jehovah God has been so kind to reaveal those things to us through his servant , Brother King. Nothing else matters in this pathetic world. Like King Solomon said, everything is thriving after wind. Doing everything that’s acceptable to Jehovah God as best as we can taking into considering our imperfect state. And treating our fellow human being as we would like to be treated. The Golden Rule. Can’t emphasise enough how Jehovah wants hearts not lip service.

            • Leonard k

              you make some very good points in your coment your words remind me of a great many very important things. yes we are all struggling as you have said but keeping on the watch taking in spiritual food and most of all building our faith and our personal relationship with our heavenly father Jehovah are very key factors. I often wonder how does brother robert king do it. all of his works bear the truth and the truth can be the hardest thing to carry because it is jehovah’s living word. and yes bklyn kevin is my biological brother as well as my spiritual brother I feel blessed Jehovah has given me two brothers in one if that makes sense to you.

    • Darren Wilks

      <3 Bev… Its obvious now isnt it. Praise Jah for revealing this to us through brother Robert.

      • Beverly kenyon

        Hiya Darren, yes you’re so right. We do have to praise Jah for every bible truth that’s being revealed here on this site. Just wish many more people can make their way here!

        • Darren Wilks

          I have a feeling we will see just what Jehovah pleases to do. 🙂 Its just so exciting!!

  • The Ancient Witness

    Just another building (complex) to fall and be destroyed when Jehovah gives the “green light”.
