They will certainly know that a prophet was among them

2023-01-09T12:46:57-05:00January 8th, 2023|Ezekiel, WT Review|

A November 2022 Watchtower study article is entitled: How Jehovah Helps Us to Carry Out Our Ministry. The scriptural theme is “They will certainly know that a prophet was among them.” — Ezek 2.5 There is no doubt that Jehovah—or more correctly, Jesus—helps Christians to fully accomplish their ministry. It is, after all, a divinely ordained work destined to be carried out to completion before [...]

What Will the Next Year Bring?

2022-12-27T16:25:17-05:00December 27th, 2022|Page One| has posted a year-end banner article proclaiming 2022 to have been the year of turmoil. And, of course, the subheading poses the gripping question: What Does the Bible Say?  Apparently, there is a category of articles that is called “keep on the watch.” Oddly though, everything the brief article mentions has supposedly already fulfilled Bible prophecy. So, what are we to expect to see by [...]

Good figs and bad figs

2022-12-22T11:59:17-05:00December 21st, 2022|Jeremiah|

A continuation of the Jeremiah series.  The 23rd chapter of Jeremiah established the fact that the denunciations against the wayward shepherds is actually earmarked for the final part of the days. That means that the negligent shepherds are appointed Christian overseers.  In the 24th chapter, Jehovah causes Jeremiah to see two baskets of figs set before the temple. One basket of fruit was good. The other [...]

Look! Jehovah is coming down to tread on earth’s high places

2023-03-23T07:14:42-04:00December 4th, 2022|Micah|

Before considering the 4th chapter of Micah, which is a prophecy earmarked for fulfillment in the final part of the days, let us first consider the first chapter, which is addressed to all the people of the earth—in other words—to us!  “Hear, all you peoples! Pay attention, O earth and what fills you, and let the Sovereign Lord Jehovah serve as a witness against you —Jehovah [...]

2023-01-19T07:17:38-05:00November 29th, 2022|Micah|

A continuation of Micah The concluding verses of the second chapter of Micah reveal something extraordinary. Although God’s people have risen up as an enemy Jehovah is still determined to set matters straight. Verses 12 and 13 states: “I will certainly gather all of you, O Jacob; I will surely collect the remaining ones of Israel together. In unity I will place them, like sheep in [...]

Trust Jehovah or trust the brothers – which will you choose?

2022-11-14T11:21:23-05:00November 13th, 2022|WT Review|

This is a review of Watchtower study article #37 2022, entitled: You Can Trust Your Brothers  1. PEOPLE in Satan’s world do not know whom they can trust. They are constantly disappointed by the conduct of commercial, political, and religious leaders. That feeling extends to friends, neighbors, and even family members. This should not surprise us. The Bible foretold: “In the last days . . [...]

I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied

2022-11-06T19:00:53-05:00November 6th, 2022|Jeremiah|

“I did not send the prophets, yet they ran. I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied.” — Jeremiah 23:21 Who are God’s people? According to God’s own declaration His people, whom he likens to a flock of sheep, have been entrusted to the care of earthly shepherds. At the time Jeremiah issued Jehovah’s denunciations the Jews were God’s exclusive people and the city of [...]

The sealing and revealing of the sons of God

2022-10-27T16:13:24-04:00October 26th, 2022|Mailbag|

Does the Bible teach that the sealing of the 144,000 began at Pentecost a few days after Christ's ascension? What Bible proof is there that being anointed or receiving a token is the same as being sealed? People can lose their anointing by committing the unpardonable sin against the holy spirit. So evidently being anointed is not the same as being sealed. Anointed ones are not [...]

You have fattened your hearts on the day of slaughter

2022-10-07T11:22:56-04:00October 5th, 2022|Page One|

The pandemic demonstrated the folly of depending on a labyrinthine network of global supply chains. No sooner had the panic receded than the second woe came quickly in the form of Russia’s recent Special Military Operation in Ukraine, and more particularly the West’s heavy-handed response to it with sanctions. And now the sabotage of Nord Stream pipelines has awakened the citizens of Europe especially, to just [...]

Psalms #21 – Your right hand will find those hating you

2022-09-30T15:12:19-04:00September 26th, 2022|Psalms|

David’s ascension to kingship was a long and trialsome affair. He was first anointed by Samuel when he was a mere teenager. Jehovah’s spirit came upon him and moved him to go out onto the battlefield against the Philistine hulk named Goliath armed only with a slingshot. After he gained national prominence he was persecuted by king Saul and was forced to live as a fugitive [...]
