The VISIBLE Presence of Jesus Christ

2020-01-18T11:34:15-05:00November 22nd, 2010|Page Two|

The belief that an invisible presence of Christ began in 1914 is undoubtedly the centerpiece of the Watchtower Society’s teachings. The importance of the parousia doctrine to the theology of Jehovah’s Witnesses cannot be understated. It is,  in fact, the basis for the Watchtower Society's ecclesiastical authority, as well as the organization’s very existence.    It is a compelling notion, to be sure. After all, what [...]

Just like lightning, so the presence of the Son of man will be

Friday, June 11 You will be hated by all the nations on account of my name. —Matt. 24:9. When persecuted, pray to Jehovah, “pour out your heart like water,” and tell your loving Father about all your fears and anxieties. (Lam. 2:19) The more you pray this way, the closer you will feel to Jehovah. (Rom. 8:38, 39) Be convinced that the blessings of God’s Kingdom will [...]

Let no one lead you astray

Wednesday, May 5 Let no one lead you astray. —2 Thess. 2:3. Satan blurs people’s view of Jehovah. After the death of Jesus’ apostles, some who claimed to be Christians began to spread false teachings. (Acts 20:29, 30) These apostates started to blur the identity of the only true God. For example, they stopped using the divine name in their copies of the Bible and preferred such expressions as [...]

Unless those days were cut short

Tuesday, March 16 In the last days ridiculers will come with their ridicule. —2 Pet. 3:3. As Satan’s system nears its end, we can expect to face ever more difficult tests of loyalty to God and his Kingdom. We will likely continue to be the target of ridicule. This may especially happen as our neutrality is tested more and more. We must strengthen our loyalty now so that [...]

The noisy city has been abandoned

2021-02-27T16:31:07-05:00February 12th, 2021|Isaiah|

Egypt had been the major power in the region prior to the ascendancy of Assyria. And long before the children of Abraham had settled in the promised land they had relied on the Egyptians for support during a time of famine. It was God’s provision for them. But this time was different. Looking to the Egyptians for help during the calamity would indicate that the Israelites lacked faith in Jehovah. So, God determined to allow the calamity to come upon them in order to purge evildoers from among his people.

He will appear and bring you joy

Monday, January 25 They all became filled with holy spirit and started to speak in different languages. —Acts 2:4. If you were one of the disciples gathered in the upper room at Pentecost 33 C.E., there would be no question in your mind that you were anointed by holy spirit. (Acts 2:5-12) But do all those who are anointed by holy spirit receive their anointing in some spectacular [...]

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

2021-01-02T15:01:51-05:00January 2nd, 2021|Commentary|

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 [...]

You will be hated on account of my name

Jehovah’s Witnesses are all about the future. Surviving the violent end of this wicked world and living forever in paradise on earth is a compelling vision —a valid hope, solidly based upon the Sacred Scriptures. Indeed, let your Kingdom come! When Jesus walked the earth he was keenly interested in the future. He was aware of what was written in the Hebrew prophets and Psalms. He [...]

You will hear a word behind you

2020-12-22T10:03:58-05:00December 22nd, 2020|Commentary|

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 [...]

The Perversity of You Men!

2020-12-13T08:04:37-05:00December 13th, 2020|Isaiah|

Slightly edited repost from 2012 Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities on earth. The first mention of it in the Holy Bible is in the book of Genesis, in connection with Melchizedek – a type of Christ, a priest, who was also the king of Salem. The 76th Psalm, which states: “God is known in Judah; in Israel his name is great. And his [...]
